 Post subject: T15B-SC with iX Developer: TCP communication possibilities?

Hello,

we're thinking about using a T15B-SC with iX Developer for an automation project. Most of the hardware would be digital I/Os connected via EtherCAT to the T15B-SC, with the exception of one machine, which talks some (mostly) text based protocol over TCP/IP.

Now our distributor has told us that the only way to communicate with that machine would be via a C# script in the HMI. For various reasons I don't like this approach. In particular I'd like to keep the entire control logic inside the SoftControl and this includes talking to that machine (triggered by other hardware I need to adjust parameters in that machine during production).

Anyway, the other day I downloaded CODESYS 3.5 SP4 and quickly came up with some code doing TCP/IP communication using the Network library that comes with CODESYS. This works fine on the Soft PLC that comes with CODESYS (CODESYS Control Win).

Since I don't have a T15B-SC available yet I can't test this myself, so my question is, will code using the Network library also run on the SoftControl installed on the T15B-SC, or am I really stuck with C# scripting?

Thanks&Regards
Thomas
