Network Node Page

The Node Page displays information about your node and allows you to read and write memory values through SDOs.


NODE INFO

Read your node's information.

Node Name displays the name of your node. (A node can be a Drive/Inverter or an IO Block)

Vendor displays the vendor ID specified in the manufacturer's ESI file.

Product displays the product ID specified in the manufacturer's ESI file.

Revision displays the revision number specified in the manufacturer's ESI file.

Station Alias ...

Serial # represents your nodes' uniquely identifiable ID. Every node will have a different Serial #.

Digital In displays the number of Digital Inputs your node contains.

Digital Out displays the number of Digital Outputs your node contains.

Analog In displays the number of Analog Inputs your node contains.

Analog Out displays the number of Digital Outputs your node contains.

SDO READ

Check out our RapidCode documentation here.

Index is used to address an entry within the object dictionary. Indexes can represent a single object (variable) or multiple objects (an array or record).

Sub-Index is used to access individual elements of an object dictionary entry/index.

(For single object dictionary entries such as an Unsigned8, Boolean, Integer32, etc. the value for the sub-index is always zero. For complex object dictionary entries such as arrays or records with multiple data fields the sub-index refers to fields within a data-structure pointed to by the main index. Index counting starts with one. )

Read Type allows to specify how you want to insert your Byte Count. As an Integer or as a String.

Byte Count is used to specify the size of the object dictionary entry/index.


Continuous Toggle-Button allows you to read the specified index periodically. (No need to press Read button)

Read Button allows you to read the specified Index.

Signed CheckBox allows you to display the result as a signed value instead of an unsigned value.

Result Field displays the read specified Index value.

Dec-Hex-Bin-Str ListBox allows you to change the way your result value is displayed.

Value is used to specify the value that will be assigned to the specified Index.


Write Button allows you to write the specified Value to the specified Index.
