Hi Everyone,

I am running ROS Kinetic on Ubuntu 16.04 on a Intel Upboard. I want to connect to a Siemen's PLC with ethernet cable using TCP/IP protocol to the upboard. I need to publish data(0/1) to certain register in PLC and subscribe to it's feedback.

What ROS packages should I Use, Please point me to necessary resources and tutorials.

Thank you

You can check the modbus package for that. It provides a wrapper from the modbus TCP communication to standardized ROS messages and it looks like it has been tested with few Siemens PLCs.
