PLC and Microsoft Office Excel




How to connect between PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) and Microsoft Office Excel?
This application uses PLC, Microsoft Office Excel 2007 and Modbus ActiveX Control.
Communication between PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) and Microsoft Office Excel using Modbus Protocol.
I use this application for data logging: each switch is pressed from the PLC, it will produce data such as the date and time in Microsoft Excel.
You can see the video below:



PLC and Microsoft Office Excel

Hardware:
1. PLC (Programmable Logic Controller), I use Siemens S7-200
2. RS232 PLC Cable: I use PPI Multi-Master Cable for Siemens S7-200
3. USB to RS 232 Converter, I use Laptop without RS232 port
4. Micro Limit Switch
