Raspberry Pi as PLC over profinet

Thu Oct 05, 2017 6:05 pm

Hi all,

I have Rasp Pi 3 Model B and need to do the control of asynchronous drive (SIEMENS) which is connected to control unit (SIEMENS) and I have Ethernet cable which I should connect to Raspberry Pi. I use software CODESYS Control for Raspberry Pi SL, and I have problem to in a communication between Pi and control unit. Please suggest is this project possible, do I need any additional hardware? I haven't seen projects which connect Siemens hardware with Codesys software, could this cause a problem?

Thank you in advance!

Hi,
the CODESYS plc on Raspberry PI could be
ProfinetController or Profinet Device... so you have the choice how to connect to your Siemens control unit.
