|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 of the remote device (e.g. of the PLC device), 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.
|Rack||(0-7) Specifies the rack number where the CPU for communication is located. Usually is 0.|
|CPU Slot||(0-31) Specifies the slot number where the CPU for communication is located. (Caution: it is NOT the slot of the communication card!)
- Very often the value is 2.
- For built-in Ethernet interface (e.g. S7-1200, S7-1500, CPU1512SP ...) the value is 1.
