|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.|
|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.
|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. The default value 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.
|Create examples of testing data||A set of exemplary data is created|
|Create panel "Received data"||Creates a panel that monitors the statistics of communication values|
|Panel title||Displayed in the panel header|
