Preconfiguration "PmS7 - NetlinkPro - MPI/PROFIBUS for Simatic S7-300/400 - Communication set with data and panel"

Communication driver configuration PmS7 - Driver for communication by the S7-TCP/IP protokol.
Communication by means of the PmS7 communication driver via the NETLink PRO ETH converter connected to Simatic S7-300/400 PLC device. See Communication with PLC devices SIMATIC by the Siemens company.
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 / S7 communication protocol".

This preconfiguration can be used with the objects: PmaFolder or PmaRoot.

The preconfiguration creates an object of the PmaComm type and a testing data set. Also the panel with complex Pmg objects is created for displaying the status.
- 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 required data is defined in the PmaData object and connected via the ExtComm to the PmaCommGroup object.
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: "S7_NetlinkPro"

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.

Communication refresh rate [ms]The time 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.

MPI/DP address(0-31) Specifies the MPI or DP-PROFIBUS address of the CPU for communication. The default MPI value is 2.
Connection typeConnection type. In the network configuration, it can be set the maximum number of connections for corresponding type.
1 = PG-connection - Programming device
2 = OP-connection - Operator panel
3 = OTHER-connection - Other type
Create examples of testing dataA set of exemplary data is created
Create panel "Received data"Creates a panel that monitors the statistics of communication values
