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

Communication by the Modbus TCP/IP protocol with Quido I/O modules.

See also Communication with meters by the Papouch company (Czechia).

The valid TCP-IP address must be set for the device according to the corresponding network environment. The configuration is described in the user manual supplied by the manufacturer.
This preconfiguration can be activated when creating a new object (e.g. by "New object ..." in the local object menu or after pressing the Insert key after selecting the object) and is included in the group: " / Communication / Modbus communication protocol".

This preconfiguration can be created in the object: PmaFolder or PmaRoot.

- 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 a Web panel.
- The panel is used for communication testing and it is not essential for the functionality.
In the PmaComm object named "Comm" the communication parameters are set (Network address, ...).

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).

If the "Temperature sensor connected" configurator was checked in the preconfiguration, then there will be the temperature meter present in the right part of the screen. In the left part of the panel there are two columns with PmgBox objects. These objects contain identical dinx parameter. The parameter specifies the index (order) for connecting the Pmg objects to the correct data, independently for DI and DO. The inserted objects display according to their purpose, the values, names and color status based on the data comming from the communication. The column for digital outputs also contains two ON/OFF buttons that can be used for controlling the digital outputs.
These configurators can be set before the preconfiguration is created:
The name of created objectName 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.

Default: "CommQuido"

Temperature sensor connectedIf the connected I/O module supports temperature measurement and the temperature sensor is connected
Number of binary inputsThe number of binary inputs of the connected module
Number of controlled binary inputsThe number of binary inputs of the connected module
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 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 transmissionThis 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.
