|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|
