Preconfiguration "Communication with iNELS devices by means of the communication driver PmChar - Communication set with data and panel"
Communication driver configuration PmChar - Driver for communication by user defined ASCII/BIN protocol
This preconfiguration can be created in the object: PmaFolder
object containing PmaCommMsg
object and panel for detecting information regarding the connected device and testing values
The created preconfigured connection is functional usually immediately. Otherwise it is necessary to obtain the connection parameters specified by the device manufacturer or see also PmChar - Driver for communication by user defined ASCII/BIN protocol
- The panel is used for communication testing and it is not essential for the communication functionality.
The preconfiguration allows exporting a list of available devices including their addresses and values into the file. This list is used in the panel for testing and changing values by GET
These configurators can be set before the preconfiguration is created:
|The name of created object||Name of the object created in the Pma objects tree. 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 characters), 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 as:
- IPv4 full address (e.g. "192.168.0.15")
- IPv4 address of this computer (i.e. "127.0.0.1")
- IPv4 computer name (e.g. "server11")
- IPv4 name of this computer (i.e. "localhost")
- IPv6 full address (e.g. "2a02:c38:8136:800a:37a:ab66:6fc9:accd")
- IPv6 address of this computer (i.e. "::1")
Macro expression can be used for input (it is evaluated after the application is launched).
After the preconfiguration is created, the "PmaComm > Setting the parameters of the Ethernet-client > Network address" configurator will be set to this value.
