Then the variables that will be read for reporting from the PLCs are defined. For each variable, an Excel row is used. In this way, report data can be defined and reused very quickly and effectively. In the corresponding column settings such as address, presentation and formatting, multiplier, minimum and maximum values, etc. are made. Subsequently, the correct definitions and the online communication to the PLC are tested.
The simulation mode allows you to work without prior connection to a PLC.
