FAQ for MsSQL Library for TIA Portal V13, V14 & V15

Can I purchase license only once and use it for more PLCs?

No, this is Single License library. So for every PLC where you will use this library, you need to have new license. License is bind to SN of PLC.

Will library work with any PLC S7 1200/1500?

Yes, library will work with any PLC S7-1200 (from FW 4.0) and S7-1500 (from FW 1.8) programmed with TIA Portal V13, V14 & V15.
FW 3.0 on S7-1200 is old HW architecture which doesn’t support some commands used in MsSQL Library.

What to do if PLC is broke down, and you need to replace HW?

We will provide you free of charge new activation number for new PLC.

Timeout destination server is unreachable.

Remote server is unreachable, possible problems can be:

  • Server is turned off
  • Server is in different subnet than PLC and gateway is wrong
  • Firewall is setup wrongly. See chapter 2.1.6 in User Guide
  • Server is not configured for TCP/IP communication. See chapter 2.1.7 in User Guide
  • sIpAddress contains Hostname such as ‘localhost’ or ‘TestSQLServer’
How to program simple code which store data after trigger?

Best approach is to create state machine such as CASE structure with states:

  1. Idle
  2. Login(set xConnect to true) after trigger
  3. Execute batch of  commands(set xExecuteSQL to true)
  4. Disconnect(set xDisconnect to true)
How to handle more SQL query in same time?

Create FIFO buffer with appropriate datatype(e.g. strings), which will work with State machine and execute commands one by one.

How to insert datatype DateTime to MsSQL Database?

Example of command to how to insert datetime to MsSQL database:
EXEC sp_insertData @TIMESTAMP = N$’2016-11-12 19:45:33$’, @Value= 12

Explanation:
EXEC sp_insertData – execution stored procedure sp_insertData which is declared on MsSQL Server. Note! If you will create stored procedure on MsSQL Server side, don’t forget to setup execute permission to user which is used on PLC.
@TIMESTAMP= N$’2016-11-12 19:45:33$’ – inserting datatime to database as a string value, but in PLC string has to be used dollar sigh($) before ‘.
@Value = 12 – is just normal integer value

How to insert datatype text (e.g. nvarchar(255) to MsSQL Database?

Note! Dollar sign($) is needed if you are using ‘ in string and if you want to store string into database   N$’Your_string$’.

INSERT INTO [dbo].[Table_TEST] ([text]) VALUES (N$’Hello World 🙂$’)

What happens in your program if tTimeout is exceeded?

There is more possible ways:
If you are trying:

  • Log to database tTimeout means that it failed and you get error and you have to try it again with different parameters according error message.
  • Executing QuerytTimeout means that command failed in some step and you have to try repair query due to error

Basically timeout check if the state machine is longer time in some step. So 1s is enough if you have local database. For instance if I’m connecting from Czech Republic to Amazon SQL Server in Oregon, sometimes it can exceed 1s.
