The PmaCommGroup object named "data" includes a "Parameters" tab where Special Parameters are defined (see PmModbusMr - Driver for communication by the Modbus Master protocol). On the "Data" tab, the items are imported by data extension of items defined in the PmaData object (see ExtComm).
|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, empty string, spaces and the first character must not be a number.|
|Temperature sensor connected||If the connected I/O module supports temperature measurement and the temperature sensor is connected|
|Number of binary inputs||The number of binary inputs of the connected module|
|Number of controlled binary inputs||The number of binary inputs of the connected module|
|Network address||Network 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.
|Close the connection after each transmission||This option sets the following configurators simultaneously: |
Not connect until first transfer. See: PmaComm > Setting the parameters of the Ethernet-client > Not connect until first transfer
Close connection after every transfer. See: PmaComm > Setting the parameters of the Ethernet-client > Close connection after every transfer
|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.
