A newly developed ASYN based S7 PLC driver has been part of CODAC Core System (CCS) since version 5.0. It supports regular Siemens S7 PLCs (300 & 400 series) and redundant PLCs (400 series) . With the recent CCSv5.2 release, three different type of communication channels are implemented: states/configuration, commands and events. For future release of CCS, support for native S7 communication will be added, using the libnodave open source library. We will discuss the current status of development, the functionality and features supported. As ITER is using SDD (Self Description Data) toolkit for I&C configuration management, we will also show the integration with this toolkit.
