It can be a value from 0 to The word value is of the following type: There is only one such area in the PLC and is always numbered 0. The ItemID configurator tells the driver how to receive or send the item value. DataFile with number higher than 8 must be “programme allocated” before use.

If the converter does no modifications to the transmitted data, then it is a very easy way how to communicate via Ethernet with devices not equipped with Ethernet interface. For usual data transmissions it is more favourable than using the PmCommMsg object. The communication description by the PmCommMsg objects List and description of the communication messages: There can be multiple areas of this type in the PLC and the first is always numbered 3.

The time in milliseconds the driver is waiting for the response on sending the message. DF1 is a major industrial serial protocol supported by a large number of devices, both those built by Allen-Bradley and other companies.

When more than two devices communicate with one another, 2-wire RS is used. It is not supported by devices of the SLC series.


Must be defined only if the item was not defined by the “Element number” e. Therefore, only two devices can communicate with one another.

PmABradleyDF1 – Driver for communication with Allen Bradley PLC devices by the DF1 protocol

With the freeware version PmFreeor when developing the application with development environment for tersting purposesthis component is always functional. It is used for testing the communication. If no response comes during this time, then the transfer of the message is terminated onEndOfTransfer event fires with error 24 or Protocol data type Only for Ethernet. This type is currently not functional for PmCommData object.

When this link is out-of-date, try searching for the above publication number. As of this writing, the following URL contains this document: Remote roating – Communication via bridge. Any DF1 master implementation that uses the above blocks should also be able to read and write from the RMC There can be multiple areas of this type in the PLC and the first is always numbered 8.

The data is then sent back from the device and can be provided for operator control screens in an Human Machine Interface HMI environment. The match of the Test string qualifies the right result in sending and receiving. The maximum lenght limitation of a communication message is entered here.


The size of the data shouldn’t exceed bytes.

Data reading by the logical address. Data writing by the logical address.

Specifies the protocol data form. This manual is available on Allen-Bradleys web site http: Only for serial link. The size of the written data shouldn’t exceed bytes. The PLCs of the lower series Micrologix do not support real numbers, but for example the Micrologix can use the real numbers.

When writing to the variable, only the single value is sent brdley the Auto send when writing to item configurator is checked.

Full-duplex DF1 is used for peer-to-peer communication. For common data transfers, it is easier to use the PmCommData object.
