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 context menu of the object or by pressing the Insert key after selecting the object) and is included in the group: "/ Communication / Protocols and other communications / M-BUS".
This preconfiguration can be created in the object: 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 as Web panel.
- The panel serves for communication testing and it is not essential for the communication 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 by 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 Pma objects tree.
The maximum name length is 30 characters.
This is a system name, so it must contain only alphanumeric and must not contain any diacritics (i.e. national dependent characters), 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 of the remote device (e.g. of the PLC device), to which the communication will be connected.
The address can be entered as:
- IPv4 full address (e.g. "192.168.0.15")
- IPv4 address of this computer (i.e. "127.0.0.1")
- IPv4 computer name (e.g. "server11")
- IPv4 name of this computer (i.e. "localhost")
- IPv6 full address (e.g. "2a02:c38:8136:800a:37a:ab66:6fc9:accd")
- IPv6 address of this computer (i.e. "::1")

Macro expression can be used for input (it is evaluated after the application is launched).
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 remote port numberEthernet remote 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 the application is launched 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 the application is launched. This port must be correctly configured and accessible in Windows OS (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/Driver/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 device address that sends the data (254 is a universal address)
Default meter addressThe device address in the M-Bus network. See: Default meter address.
Create panel "Meter value information"Creates the PmaCommMsg object and panel for detecting information regarding the connected device
Create examples of testing dataA set of exemplary data is created
Create panel for test dataCreates panel that monitors the statistics of communication values
Panel titleDisplayed in the panel header
