Preconfiguration "PmModbusMr - ADAM modules (Modbus TCP/IP) - Communication set with data and panel"

Communication by the Modbus TCP/IP protocol with ADAM device
The preconfiguration creates the data for the corresponding number of analog (max 8) and digital inputs (max 8) and outputs (max 8) and displays their status on the panel. This allows to define the required number for the specific connected device.
This preconfiguration can be activated when creating a new object (e.g. by "New object" in the local object menu or by pressing the Insert key after selecting the object) and is included in the group: " / Communication / Modbus communication protocol".

This preconfiguration can be used with the objects: PmFolder or PmRoot.

- Preconfiguration creates an object of type PmFolder containing PmComm object with PmCommData subobject and following objects: PmPanel, PmData.
- The preconfiguration is created including the panel (PmPanel object) functionality as a Web panel.
- The panel is used for communication testing and it is not essential for the functionality.
In the PmComm object named Comm the communication parameters are set (Network address, ...).

The PmCommData object named data includes a Parameters page where Special Parameters are defined (see PmModbusMr - Driver for communication by the Modbus Master protocol). On the Data page, the items are imported by the data extensions of the items defined in the PmData object (see ExtComm). Each Data corresponds to the selected device type by its structure and name.

The PmPanel object is used for displaying the settings of the communication between the application and the connected device. The caption section is included. The status and quality of the inputs and outputs of the connected device are indicated by different colors. There are three columns with PmiPanel graphic items. These items share the same dinx parameter. The parameter specifies the index (order) of the data for the specific group (AI, DI, DO). The embedded items in each panel use the parameter in order to connect to the correct data source. These items display the values, names and quality according to the current status. In the digital output column, there are two ON/OFF buttons for controling the digital outputs.
These configurators can be set before the preconfiguration is created:
The name of created objectName of the object created in the application object tree. This is a system name and must not contain diacritics, empty string, spaces and the first character must not be a number.

Default: "CommAdam"

Number of analog inputsPossible to enter 0-2-4-6-8 according to the device type
Number of digital inputsPossible to enter 0-2-4-6-8 according to the device type
Number of digital outputsPossible to enter 0-2-4-6-8 according to the device type
Network addressNetwork address to which the communication will be connected. The address can be entered by both IP address (e.g. or by name (e.g. server11).

Macro expression can be used for input (it is evaluated while the application is launching).

After this preconfiguration is created, the configurator is se to: PmComm > Settings of the Ethernet parameters > Network address
Close the connection after each transmissionThis option sets the following configurators simultaneously:

Not connect until first transfer. See: PmComm > Settings of the Ethernet parameters > Not connect until first transfer

Close connection after every transfer. See: PmComm > Settings of the Ethernet parameters > Close connection after every transfer

Communication refresh rate [ms]The time period in milliseconds to be used for reading the data by the PROMOTIC application. After this preconfiguration is created, the configurator is se to: PmCommData > Parameters > Communication refresh rate [ms]
If the connected device contains more than 8 inputs/outputs, then it is necessary to modify the preconfiguration for the increased count:
- add the corresponding data item into the PmData
- modify the added data item in ExtComm and set the corresponding ItemID
- in the panel copy the new PmiPanel and modify the value of the dinx parameter
