Command line options¶
Acqserver’s command line options are the following: (type ‘python aqserver.py –help’ to show the text below)
>python aqserver.py --help usage: aqserver.py [-h] [-c CONFIG] Siemens S7 data acquisition server optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -c CONFIG, --config CONFIG specify name of configfile, defaults to aqserver.cfg This program was written using the python-snap7 module and the snap7 library. A configfile must exist (default file is aqserver.cfg) that defines communication and other parameters and of course the S7 variables to scan. Open this file in your preferred editor and read the comments on how to configure. Values will be stored to csv-file in subdirectory data. Filename can be specified in configfile. Once a configurable trigger is raised, a new datafile begins. After trigger or when program is stopped, the data file will be compressed and stored to a path, that can also be specified in the config file.
