Within this dialog, be sure the Type is MPI, a unique address is defined, and the interface is

“networked”. If no Network has been created, then create one by pressing the Properties

button. When finished, press OK.

Note: A unique address must be defined even if your OS and AS are in separate projects within

 your multiproject. This is due to a later step to merge your MPI buses into one “plant-wide” bus.

6. Open NetPro for your AS (CPU).

Note: Again, if you are using a PCS7 Box, the NetPro selection will be your Engineering PC Station.

7. If this is a PCS7 Box application, you may skip this task.

Within NetPro, go to Edit > Merge/Unmerge Subnets > MPI Subnets. Move all the dif-

ferent MPI buses created from the individual projects within your multiproject into the

“Merged” field by pressing the highlighted arrow button. The picture on the right should

be the ending result. Press OK when complete.

Note: This step only needs to be performed once unless another MPI Subnet is added to the multi

project after this step was performed.

8. If you plan to perform simulation using AS-to-AS communication with multiple instances

of PLCSIM, then perform this step. Otherwise move to Step 9.

This step must be performed for every AS involved in AS-to-AS communications. Open

NetPro for each AS, find your S7 connection to the partner AS, and modify the Subnet to

use the MPI Interface. Use the demonstration below for help.
