Preconfigurations PmS7 - Minimal set of the PmComm object

Communication driver configuration PmS7 - Driver for communication by S7-TCP/IP protocol
 
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 / S7 protocol" and " / Communications / Siemens Simatic PLC"

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

 

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.

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"

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
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.
