Open Interface Manual Mode

Post by IrishBeerBaron » Fri Nov 20, 2009 7:10 pm

Hello,

I've begun looking through the documentation for the BCS open interface.

Is there a way to control the BCS via manual mode using the open interface? For example, similar to manual mode on the OEM interface, I would like to control output 1 with an output of 50%. Or say output 3 with a PID temperature setting of 190 degrees.

Thanks,
IBB

Absolutely. Manual Mode is really just the 5th process, with a single state. So to read write its control structures, use the following addressing.

#Update setpoints and output types with POSTS

http://192.168.0.20/ucstate.dat?p=4&s=0&
#Enable manual mode with GET

This has changed with v3.0+ and the addition of more processes. Manual Mode is now the 9th processes (slot 8 since we start at 0)
