I have been tasked to develop a test engine that will be run on a completed product. This test engine will mimic commands that set, force, and read specific values in the PLC (Lenze). The functionally I need is available when the programming software is online with the PLC, within the 'Debug' menu.
An other possibility would be to use Scripting
to create your tests and run them through the CODESYS IDE.
Look at the example "Reading of variable" at Scripts to Access CODESYS Functionalities
. There is also an sub-forum
where you can find examples and ask questions.
