Preconfigurations PmModbusMr - Papouch AD4ETH (Modbus TCP/IP) - Communication set with data and panel

Communication by the Modbus TCP/IP protocol with AD4ETH device

See also Communication with Papouch meters (Czech republic).

The device must contain the Modbus communication protocol. (Another version of the device is also suppiled with the SNMP protocol.) The valid TCP-IP address must be set for the device according to the corresponding network environment. The configuration is described in the user manual suppiled by the manufacturer.
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 / Modbus 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, PmData.
- 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.
In the PmComm object named Comm the communication parameters (Network address, ....) are set. The PmCommData object named data includes a Parameters page where Special Parameters (See: PmModbusMr - Driver for communication by Modbus Master protocol) are defined. On the Data page, the items are imported by the data extensions of the items defined in the PmData object (See: ExtComm).
The right portion of the panel contains the key describing each colour and its menaing for the valid status of analogue inputs. In the left portion of the panel there are the PmiPanel compound graphic items. All these items contain the same parameter dinx. This parameter defines the index (order) for connection of the embedded items to the data. The embedded items display the values, names and colour status of data comming in from the communication.
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: "CommAD4ETH"

Network addressNetwork address to which the communication will be connected. The address can be entered by both IP address (e.g. 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
Close the connection after each transmissionThis option sets the following configurators simultaneously:

Not connect until first transfer. See: PmComm > Settings of the Ethernet parameters > Not connect until first transfer

Close connection after every transfer. See: PmComm > Settings of the Ethernet parameters > Close connection after every transfer

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]
