|TCP/UDP remote port number||9600 (default). Can be changed.
|Ethernet transfer type||
TCP - Designed for FINS TCP type.
UDP - Designed for FINS UDP type.
|Not connect until first transfer||NOT checked (mandatory)|
|Close connection after every transfer||NOT checked (mandatory). After each connection, it is necessary to transfer several initialization messages and if the connection is closed repeatedly, the communication speed would be decreased significantly.|
|Protocol data type||
FINS TCP - Use this type:
- if the FINS nodes are connected through several IP layers
- if the connection quality is poor (for example for wireless LAN)
FINS UDP - Use this type:
- if the FINS nodes are connected to the same Ethernet segment (FINS UDP provides higher bandwidth)
- if the remote device does not support FINS/TCP
|Source Network Address||Number of FINS network where the PROMOTIC application is located. If the network contains only a single Ethernet layer, then is entered 0.|
|Source Node||Number of PROMOTIC application node (PC identifier) in the FINS network. The default value is 253. If using FINS TCP and entering the value 0 then the PLC device assigns the value automatically.|
|Source Unit||Formal number of the PC program (PROMOTIC). Usually is 0.|
|Destination Network Address||Number of FINS network where the PLC device communicating with the PROMOTIC application is located. If the network contains only a single Ethernet layer, then is entered 0.|
|Destination Node||Number of the PLC device node (PLC identifier) in FINS network. The value is configured by jumpers on the PLC. The FINS network topology allows to have one or multiple FINS nodes behind a single IP address.|
|Destination Unit||Number of logical unit of the PLC (parts). The OMRON PLC can be logically divided into several parts (units). The typical parts are the CPU, internal bus, perifery unit, communication module, memory of different types, etc. If a compact PLC is used then the value 0 is entered, otherwise follow the device documentation.|
