Connect HMI To PLCSim – Delta HMI to PLC S7-1200 – Really helpful

Connect HMI to PLCSim - Delta HMI to PLC S7-1200. Simulation Delta HMI connect to PLC use TIA Portal and DOPSoft 4.00 without hardware.

Simulation connect hmi to plcsim - Delta HMI To PLC S7-1200

Connect HMI to PLCSim – Delta HMI to S7-1200 PLC through NetToPLCsim. In this way, we can make a simulation HMI connect to PLCSim on TIA Portal without any hardware or connect a real Delta HMI to PLC S7-1200 (or S7-1500) simulation by S7-PLCSIM.

If you are a newbie and want to start learning Delta HMI & PLC programming without hardware we recommend you to read it. You can refer to Simulation HMI Delta Connect to PLC Delta also.

Connect HMI to PLCSim – Delta HMI to PLC S7-1200 PLCSim

  • Hardware: A PC (laptop) can install TIA Portal.
  • Software used:
    • TIA Portal v15.1 (or other versions)
    • S7-PLCSim v15.1 (or other versions)
    • NetToPLCsim
    • DOPSoft – Delta HMI programming soft

You can download all the above software at the download area.

Steps to connect Delta HMI and PLCSim

Step 1: Simulate S7-1200 PLC project with S7 PLCSIM

In this step, we create an S7-1200 PLC project on TIA Portal and simulation it.
Refer to the previous article: Use S7 PLCSIM To Simulation Siemens S7-1200 PLC – Quick & Easy

Step 2: Connect S7 PLCSIM to NetToPLCsim

Nettoplcsim configure for s7-plcsim
  • Open “NetToPLCSIM” and add new station for connect Nettoplcsim to S7-PLCSIM
    • Name: Enter the CPU name to use -> “PLC1”
    • Network IP address: Click “…” and select the IP address of the physical Ethernet port ->
    • Plcsim IP address: Click “…” and select the IP address of the S7 Plcsim CPU. It is the PLC IP address we set in TIA Portal ->
    • Plcsim Rack/Slot: The rack/slot position of the CPU -> select “0/1”
  • Click “OK -> Start Server”
Start server Nettoplcsim tia-portal

Step 3: Delta HMI Connect PLCSIM Through Nettoplcsim

  • Open DOPSoft v4.00 and add a new HMI supported Ethernet port. Click “Next”.
Communication setting delta HMI connect s7-1200
  • Setting communication parameters for connect hmi to plcsim – Delta HMI to S7-1200 PLC
    • Controller: Siemens -> S7 1200 (ISO TCP)
    • Controller IP: We set it like the “Network IP address” in Nettoplcsim (Step 2)
    • Other parameters: set as default
  • Click “Finish” and then add objects (button, number entry…) to the screen.
  • Compile and save the project
  • Download the project to HMI (if you have a real HMI) or click “Tool -> On-line simulation (Ctrl + F4)” and simulate the delta hmi connect plcsim.
