spsXChange Settings for Scanner Communikation
For each production station an optional ip-scanner can be connected. Data from the scanner can then be sent directly to the ERP or other regulating application. The responses from the ERP can then be transmitted to S7 SPS directly.
If supported by the scanner a so called heartbeat signal can be set up, to monitor the availability of the TCP/IP connection.
A production station can monitor either a scanner or a Simatic or both.
