Preconfiguration "PmMelsecQA - Minimal set of the PmaComm object"

Communication driver configuration PmMelsecQA - Driver for communication with Mitsubishi PLC devices of the Q/A/L/iQ-R/iQ-F series.

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 / PLC devices and meters / Mitsubishi - PLC device".
This preconfiguration can be created in the object: PmaFolder or PmaRoot.
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: "Comm"
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 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.
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.

ParityParity selection. Appropriate value for the device, which it is communicated with, must be selected.
This configurator sets the initial value of the Parity property.
After the preconfiguration is created, the "PmaComm > Setting the parameters of the serial link > Parity" configurator will be set to this value.

Protocol formatSpecifies the structure of the protocol.
Depends on the PLC type and the setup (e.g. depends on setting the MODE switch on AJ71C24 communication module).
3E/ASCII = Q/L series ethernet (3E compatible), ASCII Format -
The protocol for Ethernet for PLC devices of the Q and L series. It is a modification of the "ASCII code" (the modification of the "binary code" has not been implemented in the driver).
3C/CF1 = Q series serial (3C compatible), Control Format 1 -
The protocol for serial link for PLC devices of the Q C24 series. It is the basic (recommended) mode and there are three derived submodes.
3C/CF2 = Q series serial (3C compatible), Control Format 2 (Format 1 with block num added) -
Submode of the 3C/CF1 format, with added block number.
3C/CF3 = Q series serial (3C compatible), Control Format 3 (Format 1 with STX+ETX added) -
Submode of the 3C/CF1 format, where the protocol starts with the STX (=2) character and ends with the ETX (=3) character.
3C/CF4 = Q series serial (3C compatible), Control Format 4 (Format 1 with CR+LF added) -
Submode of the 3C/CF1 format, where the two CR+LF characters are placed at the end of each message.
1C/CF1 = A series (1C compatible), Control Format 1 -
Protocol for serial link for PLC devices of the A series, but also can be used for PLC devices of the Q series. It is the basic (recommended) mode and there are three derived submodes.
1C/CF2 = A series (1C compatible), Control Format 2 (Format 1 with block num added) -
Submode of the 1C/CF1 format, with added block number.
1C/CF3 = A series (1C compatible), Control Format 3 (Format 1 with STX+ETX added) -
Submode of the 1C/CF1 format, where the protocol starts with the STX (=2) character and ends with the ETX (=3) character.
1C/CF4 = A series (1C compatible), Control Format 4 (Format 1 with CR+LF added) -
Submode of the 1C/CF1 format, where the two CR+LF characters are placed at the end of each message.
A1E/ASCII = A series Ethernet ASCII (for A1SJ71E71 Ethernet interface module) -
The protocol for Ethernet for PLC devices of the A series with additional communication module A1SJ71E71-B2/B5. The SW2 switch is in the ASCII protocol syntax position.
A1E/BIN = A series Ethernet Binary (for A1SJ71E71 Ethernet interface module) -
The protocol for Ethernet for PLC devices of the FX series with integrated Ethernet port and PLCs of the A series with additional communication module A1SJ71E71-B2/B5. In the PLC device the Communication Data Code switch (or SW2 switch on modules) must be switched to binary protocol syntax position.
Create examples of testing dataA set of exemplary data is created
Communication refresh rate [ms]The period in milliseconds to be used for reading the current data by the PROMOTIC application.
After the preconfiguration is created, the "PmaCommGroup > Parameters > Communication refresh rate [ms]" configurator will be set to this value.
