Preconfiguration "PmSBUS - PLC SAIA - Communication set with data and panel"

Communication driver configuration PmSBUS - Driver for communication with SAIA and DIGIControl PLC devices by the S-BUS/S-BUS+ protokol.
 
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 / S-BUS protokol (SAIA, DIGIControl)".

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

 
- The preconfiguration creates an object of the PmaFolder type containing PmaComm object with PmaCommGroup subobject and following objects: PmaPanel.
- 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.
 
The preconfiguration allows to choose two types of connection with the computer:
- via the computer's serial port (RS232/RS485..)
- via Ethernet using the RS232/Ethernet converter

The created preconfigured connection is functional usually immediately. Otherwise it is necessary to obtain the connection parameters specified by the device manufacturer or in the documentation: PmSBUS - Driver for communication with SAIA and DIGIControl PLC devices by the S-BUS/S-BUS+ protokol.

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: "CommSaia"

Communication type
Network TCP/IP communication (default)
Serial communication
Network addressNetwork 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.

Close the connection after each transmissionThis option sets the following configurators simultaneously:

Not connect until first transfer. See: PmaComm > Setting the parameters of the Ethernet-client > Not connect until first transfer

Close connection after every transfer. See: PmaComm > Setting the parameters of the Ethernet-client > Close connection after every transfer

Serial portSelection of the communication serial port.

The value can be change by the OpenPort method. The value can be detected by method GetProtParam(""SerPort"").

After the preconfiguration is created, the "PmaComm > Setting the parameters of the serial link > Serial port" configurator will be set to this value.

Not set - The object is not connected to any port after starting the application and the serial port can be selected dynamically by the algorithm (by the PmaComm.OpenPort method).
COM1, COM2,..,COM66 - The specified serial port is opened after starting the application. This port must be correctly configured and accessible in the OS Windows (no one can use it).

For serial link each PmaComm object must have defined another communication port. For example, if one PmaComm object communicates through COM1, then next PmaComm object can communicate for example through COM2 (COM3, ...) but it mustn't communicate through COM1.

Baud rateSelection of the baud rate (bps, bit per second).

This configurator sets the initial value of the BaudRate property.

After the preconfiguration is created, the "PmaComm > Setting the parameters of the serial link > Baud rate" configurator will be set to this value.

Protocol data typeSee: Protocol data type

After the preconfiguration is created, the "PmaComm > Parameters > Protocol parameters" configurator will be set to this value.

5558 - for PLC DIGIControl

After the preconfiguration is created, the "PmaComm > Setting the parameters of the Ethernet-client > TCP/UDP port number" configurator will be set to this value.

Transfer modeSee: Transfer mode

After the preconfiguration is created, the "PmaComm > Parameters > Protocol parameters" configurator will be set to this value.

1: Parity
2: Data
SBUS address of this applicationFor "DIGIControl S-BUS TBETH protocol" data type.
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.

Default PLC addressThe address defined here can be used for definitions in the "ItemID" configurator for the variables in this object (i.e. the variables on the "Data" tab or in the ExtComm data extensions). The address can be entered in ItemID:
- as for example dev1... - then the value will be read from the PLC device with address 1.
- or devD... - the "D" character means default (it means that the address is taken from this configurator).

This parameter can be modified and read in the script during runtime by methods: SetSpecParam("SlaveAddr") and GetSpecParam("SlaveAddr").

After the preconfiguration is created, the "PmaCommGroup > Parameters > Special Parameters > Default PLC address" configurator will be set to this value.
