Preconfiguration "PmModbusMr - Papouch Quido modules (Modbus TCP/IP) - Communication set with data and panel"

Communication by the Modbus TCP/IP protocol with Quido I/O modules

See also Communication with Papouch meters (Czech republic).

The valid TCP-IP address must be set for the device according to the corresponding network environment. The configuration is described in the user manual supplied by the manufacturer.
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: " / Communication / Modbus communication protocol".

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

- Preconfiguration creates an object of type PmFolder containing PmComm object with PmCommData subobject and following objects: PmPanel, PmData.
- The preconfiguration is created including the panel (PmPanel object) functionality as a Web panel.
- The panel is used for communication testing and it is not essential for the functionality.
In the PmComm object named Comm the communication parameters are set (Network address, ...).

The PmCommData object named data includes a Parameters page where Special Parameters are defined (see PmModbusMr - Driver for communication by the Modbus Master protocol). On the Data page, the items are imported by the data extensions of the items defined in the PmData object (see ExtComm).

If the "Temperature sensor connected" configurator was checked in the preconfiguration, then there will be the temperature meter present in the right portion of the screen. The left portion of the panel contains two columns with PmiPanel graphic items. These items contain identical dinx parameter. The parameter defines the index (order) for connecting the items to the correct data, independently for DI and DO. The inserted items display according to their purpose, the values, names and color status based on the data comming from the communication. The column for digital outputs also contains two ON/OFF buttons that can be used for controlling the digital outputs.
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 diacritics, empty string, spaces and the first character must not be a number.

Default: "CommQuido"

Temperature sensor connectedIf the connected I/O module supports temperature measurement and the temperature sensor is connected
Number of binary inputsThe number of binary inputs of the connected module
Number of controlled binary inputsThe number of binary inputs of the connected module
Network addressNetwork address to which the communication will be connected. The address can be entered by both IP address (e.g. 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
Close the connection after each transmissionThis option sets the following configurators simultaneously:

Not connect until first transfer. See: PmComm > Settings of the Ethernet parameters > Not connect until first transfer

Close connection after every transfer. See: PmComm > Settings of the Ethernet parameters > Close connection after every transfer

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]
