SIMATIC I/O Shield data point parameter

In order to collect the data of your SIMATIC I/O Shield device, you must add new data points.

The signal that has to be recorded can be configured by specifying pin type (analog/digital) and the pin number as it is printed on SIMATIC I/O shield device. For the analog inputs, the read value corresponds to a percentage value between 0 and 1. The percentage value refers to the permissible voltage range between 0-10 V. The read value must be converted accordingly for the connected sensor.
