Communication with Johnson Controls devices

An ActiveX driver was created for the communication of a PROMOTIC application with Johnson Controls PLC's. The driver is determined for the communication via the computer's serial port by the N2Bus protocol. The ActiveX driver is included in the PROMOTIC system in the folder: /Pm/Examples/Commun/Johnson/ActiveX (see Example of communication with Johnson Controls PLC devices)
The driver supports the following types of controllers: DX9100 (8454 and 8154, even time programs can be edited), TC91xx, XT and XTM, DR9100, DC9100.
The driver supports up to 6 COM ports. It is suitable for applications where, for example, the number of controllers on one bus is too high and the communication is slowed down.

If the driver is not registered, it runs in the DEMO mode. DEMO provides real values only in limited time (30 minutes). After this time it provides only 0 instead of real values. After restart it provides correct values again.

Trade terms:

Usage of the PmActiveX object is bound to the purchase of the PmActiveX license in the application. With the freeware version PmFree, or when developing the application (with development environment for tersting purposes), this component is always functional.
