Hello,

this is very propably the wrong place, but the closest I could find and I hope someone here can answer it. If there is a better place for this question, please point me in the direction.

I am trying to get an old AXC1050 connected in PC WORX 6.30.2907.

When I create a Project it assumes an IP of 192.168.0.2 for the AXC1050. How can I change that? Sorry for that very basic question but I cant change the IP of the controller itself, so I need to find the option how to change the connection-ip in PC WORX.

A seperate question would be if I can import/load the currently deployed program from the controller (either with PC Worx directly or from the files I can get via ftp. I downloaded a AXLDiag.zip, bfile0.img, Data.INI and Project.ini ).

Best,

Soeren

Hi Soeren,

You're right, your questions aren't related to PLCnext, but let's see what we can do:

  • In PC Worx, change to the "Hardware Configuration Workspace", click on the AXC 1050 in the tree, and then you should see a configuration window on the right of the screen where you can change the IP address settings and test communications to the PLC (there are a number of tabs along the bottom of the screen where you can change views). You will need to know the current IP address setting of the PLC to do this successfully.
  • If the last person to write the project to the PLC also saved the project Sources to the PLC, then you will be able to recover the project source code. Otherwise - and this is usually the case - you will only be able to retrieve the compiled (binary) version of the project, which is handy for backups, but cannot be used to reconstruct the source code.

For other questions on PC Worx or AXC 1050, please contact the technical support people in your local Phoenix Contact office. You can get their details on the Phoenix Contact home page.

Thanks, I found it. Now I guess it does not work because the AXC is not in the same network than me. If you know, Which ports is PC Worx using to scan/connect to the controller? Otherwise you can close the question, I will try to contact our local Phoenix office.

Best,

Soeren

Hi Soeren, are you able to ping the PLCs IP address from the machine running PC Worx?

If so, then you should be able to connect to the PLC from PC Worx.

If not, then you will need to set up your network so that the PLC is accessible from your machine - the simplest way to do this is to connect your PC to the same LAN as the PLC. If you are going through a router and/or firewall, and you need specific port numbers ... then you will need to contact your local Phoenix Contact office (or else email automation-service@phoenixcontact.com) and they should be able to help you.
