Hello Doomaxe,

the M580 plc has allready build-in NOC. So you don't need any read/write blocks, just use io-scanning in DTM-browser.
Just open DTM-browser in UnityPro, right click on your plc and choose add device. IF you have installed DTM's for Altivar, then just choose your altivar, set the IP, compilate your application and load it into plc - that's all, communication working :)

If you don't have DTM for altivar (it's for free), then you can add modbus device and use io scanning.
Life is easy :)
