This video tutorial offers a step-by-step guide for explaining how to connect a Mitsubishi PLC to TRACE MODE SCADA/HMI through Ethernet network.
Let's develop a simple control system, consisting of a Mitsubishi FX3U PLC and an operator PC connected with net using MELSEC protocol. The Mitsubishi FX3U-16M has FX3U-4AD-PT-ADP I/O module connected to a temperature sensor and an ETHERNET card FX3U-ENET. The IP-address of the PLC is 192.168.10.218 the port for data exchange is 5551.
We should read data and display data from the temperature sensor on our operator HMI. The value from sensor is located in Data/FileRegister D8260.
