Preconfiguration "PmMBus - Residia meter - Communication set with data and panel"

Configuration of the PmMBus communication driver with test panel.
 
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 / M-BUS communication protocol".

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

 
The preconfiguration creates an object of the PmaComm type and a testing data set. Also the panel with complex Pmg objects is created for displaying the status.
 
- The preconfiguration creates an object of the PmaFolder type containing PmaComm object with PmaCommGroup subobject and following objects: PmaPanel, PmaData.
- The preconfiguration is created including the panel (object of the PmaPanel type) is functional also a Web panel.
- The panel is used for communication testing and it is not essential for the functionality.
 
In the PmaComm object named "Comm" the communication parameters are set (Network address, ...). The required data is defined in the PmaData object and connected via the ExtComm to the PmaCommGroup object.
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: "CommResidia"

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.

TCP/UDP port numberEthernet port number for communication.

Values defined in the M-Bus/Ethernet converter.

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.

Filter ECHO charsSpecifies whether the received data have to be removed (filtered) because it goes about repeating characters transmitted from the message.

Note: Received filtered ECHO characters are recorded together with other characters in the "/COMM/Monitor" item of the INFO system.

It depends on M-BUS/RS232 converter.
No (default) - No filtr
Yes - Filter. As many first received characters are removed as many characters were transmitted last. Must be set, if the port (converter) returns transmitted characters.
The address of the meter that sends the data (254 is a universal address)
Default meter addressValid device address within the M-Bus network. Default meter address See: Description of the "PmaCommGroup > Parameters > Special Parameters" configurator
Create panel "Meter value information"Creates a configured PmaCommMsg object and panel for detecting information regarding the connected device
Create examples of testing dataA set of exemplary data is created
Create panel "Received data"Creates a panel that monitors the statistics of communication values
