Preconfigurations Wago BACnet Controller and PmBACnet driver - Communication set with data and panel

Configuration of PmBACnet communication driver with test panel for Wago BACnet/IP Controller 750-830.
 
This preconfiguration can be activated when creating a new object (e.g. by "New object" in the local object menu or by pressing the Insert key after selecting the object) and is included in the group: " / Communications / BACnet protocol".

This preconfiguration can be used with the objects: PmFolder or PmRoot.

 
- Preconfiguration creates an object of type PmFolder containing PmComm object with PmCommData subobject and following objects: PmPanel.
- The preconfiguration is created including the panel (PmPanel object) functionality as a WEB panel.
- The panel is used for communication testing and it is not essential for the functionality.
 
The required binary and analog I/O values are created and connected in the PmData object via ExtComm to the variables in the PLC in the order from 0 to x. If it is required to connect additional items then these items are created in the PmData object, but the connection to desired values must be created subsequently. After application launch it is possible to observe these variables in the WAGO BACnet - Data panel.
 
These configurators can be set before the preconfiguration is created:
The name of created objectName of the object created in the application object tree. This is a system name and must not contain empty string, diacritics, spaces and the first character must not be a number.

Default: "WagoBACnet"

Network addressNetwork address to which the communication will be connected. The address can be entered by both IP address (e.g. 192.168.0.15) or by name (e.g. server11).

Macro expression can be used for input (it is evaluated while the application is launching).

After this preconfiguration is created, the configurator is se to: PmComm > Settings of the Ethernet parameters > Network address
Create examples of testing dataA set of exemplary data is created
Communication refresh rate [ms]The time period in milliseconds to be used for reading the data by the PROMOTIC application. After this preconfiguration is created, the configurator is se to: PmCommData > Parameters > Communication refresh rate [ms]
Number of binary outputs
Number of binary inputs
Number of analog outputs
Number of analog inputs
Number of additional items
Create panel "Received data"Creates a panel that monitors the statistics of communication values
Panel titleDisplayed in the panel header
Create PmCommMsg for reading informations from the PLCCreates the PmCommMsg object that allows to read information from the connected PLC.
Create panel that is used displaying and saving information from the PLC.The panel is used for running the Run method and also for saving the displayed information into a file.
