The SP7 Toolkit for LabVIEW by DATA AHEAD GmbH enables the exchange of data with various Siemens Simatic S7 PLCs using TCP/IP communication. It is compatible with Siemens Simatic S7 PLCs of the S7-200, S7-300, and S7-400 series that include an Ethernet interface and with Siemens Simatic S7-1200 and S7-1500 series.

It provides the reading and writing functionality of typical data types without costly reconfigurations of the PLC or the introduction of more complex bus protocols, such as PROFIBUS or PROFINET. In many applications, it can replace OPC servers and allow more direct communication between interacting devices.

A variety of examples and user-friendly documentation of the API are included. Get started quickly by running the well-documented example programs.

SP7 is programmed natively in LabVIEW. Use SP7 on any platform supported by LabVIEW including CompactRIO systems.
