This section describes some different ways to control an Evolabel printer from a PLC. Multiple Evolabel devices are controlled by PLCs. These integrations are made by our skilled partners.
Digital I/O and I/O rules¶
I/O-Rules make it possible to execute system requests when an input changes state, or set outputs from system events.
Evolabel printers provide a Modbus TCP Server interface which can be accessed on port 502.
Sending variable print data¶
Most modern PLC can send raw variable data through to a network port on a device. It should therefore be possible to send JSON-RPC or XML data from the PLC to the printer.
PLC configuration files for Evolabel devices¶
Evolabel do not provide PLC configuration files.
