Preconfiguration "PmModbusMr - Papouch temperature sensor TME (Modbus TCP/IP) - Communication set with data and panel"
Communication by the Modbus TCP/IP
protocol with TME
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 documentation 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 by pressing the Insert
key after selecting the object) and is included in the group: "/ Communication / Protocols and other communications / Modbus"
This preconfiguration can be created in the object: PmaFolder
- 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 communication functionality.
In the PmaComm
object named "Comm
" the communication parameters are set (Network address
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
). Each Data
corresponds to the selected device type by its structure and name.
These configurators can be set before the preconfiguration is created:
|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.
|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.
|Panel title||Displayed in the panel header|
