The created preconfigured connection is functional usually immediately. Otherwise it is necessary to obtain the connection parameters specified by the device manufacturer or in the documentation: PmIEC62056 - Driver for communication by protocol of the IEC 62056 standard.
|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.
|Serial port||Selection of the communication serial port. |
The value can be change by the OpenPort method.
The value can be detected by method GetProtParam("SerPort").
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.
|Response receipt timeout||The time (in milliseconds) the driver is waiting for the response on sending the message. |
If no response comes during this time, then the transfer of the message is terminated (the onEndOfTransfer event is triggered with error 24 or 66).
|Create the testing panel and methods for processing the received message.||Creates a method for processing the received message and the panel for running the communication and displaying the whole communication message. The panel can also be used for calling the method that processes the messege and displays the desired values.|
