What are the methods to get a Siemens S7-1200 PLC data into the PI Archive

Question asked by mchung on Feb 12, 2019

1. I do not have an IO map and I would like to pull all values from a Siemens PLC into the PI Data Archive

2. I want live data readings, not UFL loaded values

3. I know there is Siemens PLC 7 to Kepware OPC DA Server to PI OPC DA Interface to PI Archive method, but would rather not use this one. Seems like too many points of failure.


What I am unclear on is the PI Connector for Siemens SIMATIC PCS 7. Does this PI Interface work with just the Siemen S7-1200 PLC HMI combo?
