Communication with FATEK PLCs

The Fatek Automation company (www.fatek.com, Taiwan) manufactures the FATEK PLCs.
 
It is possible to use following options for communication between the PROMOTIC system and the PLCs:
 

Communication by FATEK FACON protocol

For this communication in the PROMOTIC system can be used: PmFatek - Driver for communication with FATEK PLC devices.

For easy integration of this driver into the application it is handy to use: Preconfigurations in group "Fatek PLC".

 
Other way of communication: There are FACON OPC servers for example by:
- the Kontron company. The demo version is working 1 hour. It becomes full version after registration.
- the OPCTechs Technology company. Free for testing purposes.
Then the PROMOTIC application will communicate as a client by the OPC interface, i.e. by the PmOpcClient object, the PROMOTIC will be connected to the OPC server and thus communicate with the devices.

Communication by Modbus protocol

The PLCs allow to use the accessory modules communicate by the Modbus protocol (RTU and TCP/IP).

For this communication in the PROMOTIC system can be used: PmModbusMr - Driver for communication by Modbus Master protocol.

For easy integration of this driver into the application it is handy to use:
