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: PmS7 - Driver for communication by S7-TCP/IP protocol.
|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.|
|Network address||Network 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
|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]|
|Rack||(0-7) Defines the rack number where the CPU for communication is located. The default value is 0.|
|CPU Slot||(0-31) Defines the slot number where the CPU for communication is located. (Caution: it is NOT the slot of the communication card!) |
- Very often the value is 2.
- For built-in Ethernet interface (e.g. S7-1200, CPU1512SP ..) the value is 1.
