Communication with Moeller PLC devices

It is possible to communicate with the Moeller devices as follows:
- by the SUCOMA protocol: serial link, point-to-point connection, the protocol is supported on the programming port at all Moeller devices.
- by the SUCONET protocol: serial link, Master x Slave connection, in the Moeller devices the network card with the SUCONET support is necessary.
- in the Ethernet network (TCP/IP): over the CoBox HW converter.
- over the phone modem: by the SUCOMA protocol

For the communication of the PROMOTIC system with the Moeller devices the following communication drivers can be used:


1. OPC server

For the communication with the Moeller devices the communication OPC server can be used that is protected by the HW key.

The OPC server can communicate with the Moeller devices:

- via the computer's serial port (by the SUCOMA protocol).
- over the phone modem.
- by means TCP/IP protocol (by means of the CoBox HW converter).

The communication in the Ethernet network can be implemented by means of the CoBox HW converter - to convert the SUCOMA serial protocol to the TCP/IP protocol. For more information - see the technical support.


Trade terms:

An access to the OPC server over the PmOpcClient Promotic object is bound to purchase of the PmOpcClient license. With the freeware version PmFree, or when developing the application (with development environment for tersting purposes), this component is always functional.

2. Communication DDE server - obsolete method

The communication DDE server supports the communication by the SUCOMA and SUCONET protocols. It goes about the serial communication.

The DDE server can be selected as a Master (the most used solution) or a Slave.

Caution: The DDE server allows to communicate only over one communication port to the PC (COM1 or COM2 can be chosen).
