PLC: Wago, Beckhoff, ABB

PLCs that support ModBus RTU/TCP can be integrated into IP-Symcon. A connection is established via ModBus RTU/TCP .

The following devices are supported by IP-Symcon:

Supported devices

For example

  • Wago 750-841 - The connection to IP-Symcon is made via the LAN interface.


Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) are independent electronic assemblies for controlling machines and systems. These work independently of a PC. The functions for control and regulation are stored in a program. IP-Symcon is used for visualization as well as the Human-Machine Interface (HMI), i.e. the interface between the operator and the machine.

Setup in IP-Symcon

The Wago, Beckhoff and ABB PLCs can be controlled via the IP-Symcon ModBus RTU/TCP module. Since ModBus is the parent protocol for control, the names of the terminal device manufacturers are no longer explicitly mentioned in the control module. The documentation for this can be found here: ModBus RTU/TCP

Convert IEC 61131 to ModBus Register

This tool can be used to quickly convert the WAGO (IEC 61131) addresses into the respective ModBus address.
