Preconfigurations PmIEC8705 - Minimal set of the PmComm object

Configuration of the PmIEC8705 communication driver.
 
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 / IEC8705 protocol".

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

 
Preconfiguration for Ethernet or serial port.

The created preconfigured connection is usually functional immediately. In other cases, it is necessary to obtain the connection parameters specified by the device manufacturer or in the documentation: PmIEC8705 - Driver for communication by protocol of the IEC 60870-5 standard.

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: "Comm"

Communication type
Network TCP IP communication (default)
Serial communication
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
Serial portSelection of the communication serial port.

After this preconfiguration is created, the configurator is se to: PmComm > Settings of the serial link parameters > Serial port.

Not set - The object is not connected to any port at the start of the application and the serial port can be selected dynamically by the algorithm (by the PmComm.OpenPort method).
Modem - The object is meant for the data transfer over the dialed phone line (over the PmModem object). The serial port is assigned by the PmModem.SetPmComm method or by the PmComm object configurator of the PmModem object.
COM1, COM2,..,COM66 - The specified serial port is opened at the start of the application. This port must be correctly configured and accessible in the OS Windows (no one can use it).

For serial link each PmComm object must have defined another communication port. For example, when one PmComm object communicates through COM1, then next PmComm object can communicate for example through COM2 (COM3,..) but it mustn't communicate through COM1.

Baud rateSelection of the baud rate (bps, bit per second).

This configurator sets the initial value of the property BaudRate.

After this preconfiguration is created, the configurator is se to: PmComm > Settings of the serial link parameters > Baud rate

Link address of this stationThe link address of the computer, running the PROMOTIC application (PmComm > Parameters > Protocol parameters)
Link address of the second stationThe link address of the station, the PROMOTIC application comunicates with:
For "Balanced mode": Communcation only with one station. Variable LinkAddr in Data-sent page of every Master message is not taken into consideration.
For "Unbalanced mode": This configurator is not shown. The address is filled in LinkAddr variable in Data-sent page of every Master message.
