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: PmS5PG - Driver for communication over PG port with Siemens Simatic S5 PLC devices.
|The name of created object||Name 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.|
|Serial port||Selection 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.
|Parity||Parity selection. Appropriate value for the device, which it is communicated with, must be selected. |
This configurator sets the initial value of the property Parity.
After this preconfiguration is created, the configurator is se to: PmComm > Settings of the serial link parameters > Parity
|PLC type||it is possible to select "AG90,AG95,AG100" or "greater than AG100". Practically the correctness of the choice must be checked. There are some symptoms that for example for AG115 it is necessary to select the first option.|
AG90, AG95, AG100
