Preconfiguration "PmModbusMr - Papouch temperature and humidity sensor TH2E (Modbus TCP/IP) - Communication set with data and panel"

Communication by the Modbus TCP/IP protocol with TH2E device

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, PmTrend.
- 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). Each Data corresponds to the selected device type by its structure and name.

The PmTrend object named Trend contains the setting in the configurator Storage type, that defines saving the trend values into Database dBase backups. The data items for the PmTrend object are defined in the PmData object using the ExtTrend.
The PmPanel object contains ActiveX trend viewers TrendsView and PmTable. There are also PmiButton graphic items for setting and controlling the viewer, and graphic items PmiText with description texts and with values displaying the current measurement status.
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: "CommTH2E"

PermissionsOn this page permissions of the object are defined. See Description of the page Permissions.
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]
Autosave period [s]Autosave period in seconds. Each time this period passes the Run method is called internally, which first generates the onAddRecord event and then saves all current values from the Data page.

After this preconfiguration is created, the configurator is se to: PmTrend > Trend > Autosave period [s].
