[?]: newbie questions...

Post by mua » Fri Dec 01, 2006 6:34 pm

Hello Everyone,

first of all i need to tell you that im total n00b in 'these' things (programming).

Ive found on this board a lot of usefull links but I wasnt able to find some tutorials for newbies (re plc's, s7-400/200).

can i ask you for some links for a beginner in programming the plcs? i think you will know what do i need ;) (in the sum - how to start?)

i'd be greatfull. thank you in advance.

hiho, its me again. i dont want to make a mess in here with new topics so i decided to add my new newbie questions in here. here it is:

- what are a differences between s7400 and m7400? what is m7-400?
- what is a profibus?
- what is "mpi adress"? ... maybe i know what is this but not with this name...
- i was doing 'getting started' project and i was going fine but one thing interested me.
Press Key 1 and Key 2 in your test
configuration and monitor the result in
the variable table.
ok. i know you can do it in plcsim by setting input variable but - how to do it in "real life". i mean - how to tell the program that you push the button in real? how does plc get the information that key_1 was pressed? is it the clear "electric case"?
update: or maybe... its about the button pressed on the control panel :o
----------------------
thanks in advance for answers.
----------------------
one thing more:
2. Read manuals in _Manuals folder (first STEP 7 - Working with STEP 7.pdf)
what should be second? ;)

cheers guys. gw.

update:
totally advanced question.
do you have some easy recipe to download software from a OP27 siemens control panel? o_O
