|The name of created object||Name of the object created in the tree of Pma objects. The maximum name length is 30 characters. This is a system name, so it must contain only alphanumeric and must not contain any diacritics, empty string, spaces and the first character must not be a number.|
|Network address||Network address to which the communication will be connected. The address can be entered by both IP address (e.g. 192.168.0.15) or by name (e.g. server11).|
Macro expression can be used for input (it is evaluated after starting the application).
After the preconfiguration is created, the "PmaComm > Setting the parameters of the Ethernet-client > Network address" configurator will be set to this value.
|TCP/UDP port number||Ethernet port number for communication.|
|Serial port||Selection of the communication serial port. |
After the preconfiguration is created, the "PmaComm > Setting the parameters of the serial link > Serial port" configurator will be set to this value.
Not set - The object is not connected to any port after starting the application and the serial port can be selected dynamically by the algorithm (by the PmaComm.OpenPort method).
COM1, COM2,..,COM66 - The specified serial port is opened after starting the application. This port must be correctly configured and accessible in the OS Windows (no one can use it).
For serial link each PmaComm object must have defined another communication port. For example, if one PmaComm object communicates through COM1, then next PmaComm object can communicate for example through COM2 (COM3, ...) but it mustn't communicate through COM1.
|Baud rate||Selection of the baud rate (bps, bit per second). |
This configurator sets the initial value of the BaudRate property.
After the preconfiguration is created, the "PmaComm > Setting the parameters of the serial link > Baud rate" configurator will be set to this value.
|Communication refresh rate [ms]||The time period in milliseconds to be used for reading the current data by the PROMOTIC application. |
After the preconfiguration is created, the "PmaCommGroup > Parameters > Communication refresh rate [ms]" configurator will be set to this value.
|Create data and panel for obtaining device information||The preconfiguration creates an object of the PmaCommMsg type MsgObjectList, MsgTime and the panel PanelInfo for detecting device information|
|Create data and panel for reading archhived values||The preconfiguration creates an object of the PmaCommMsg type MsgDay, MsgMonth, MsgData, MsgBilling, MsgExtreme and panel for reading the archived values.|
|Create data and panel for observing current values||The preconfiguration creates an object of the PmaData type and panel for observing current data|
|Panel title||Displayed in the panel header|
