Preconfiguration "PmIEC8705 - Minimal set of the PmaComm object"

Configuration of the PmIEC8705 communication driver
 
This preconfiguration can be activated when creating a new object (e.g. by "New object ..." in the local object menu or after pressing the Insert key after selecting the object) and is included in the group: " / Communication / IEC8705 communication protocol".

This preconfiguration can be used with the objects: PmaFolder or PmaRoot.

 
Preconfiguration for Ethernet or for serial link.

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: PmIEC8705 - Driver for communication by protocol of the IEC 60870-5 standard.

These configurators can be set before the preconfiguration is created:
The name of created objectName 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.

Default: "Comm"

Communication type
Network TCP/IP communication (default)
Serial communication
Network addressNetwork 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 portSelection 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 rateSelection 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.

Link address of this stationThe link address of the computer, running the PROMOTIC application (PmaComm > Parameters > Protocol parameters)
Link address of the second stationThe link address of the station, the PROMOTIC application comunicates with:
For "Balanced mode": Communication only with one station. Variable LinkAddr on the "Data-sent" tab of every Master message is not taken into consideration.
For "Unbalanced mode": This configurator is not shown. The address is entered in the LinkAddr variable on the "Data-sent" tab of every Master message.
