|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 (i.e. national dependent chars), 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 IPv4 address (e.g. 192.168.0.15) or by computer name (e.g. server11).
The IPv4 address 127.0.0.1 is the local address of this computer.
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 remote port number||Ethernet remote port number for communication.
Values defined in the M-Bus/Ethernet converter.
|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 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 chars||Specifies 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.
|The address of the meter that sends the data (254 is a universal address)|
|Default meter address||Valid device address within 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 panel for test data||Creates panel that monitors the statistics of communication values|
