What Is A Protocol Macro?

A protocol macro is a macro containing communications protocols designed for the communication specifications of an external device that has a serial communication port.
The two main functions for protocol macros are:
  • Creating communications frames (messages)
  • Creating the procedures to send and receive communications frames
The Boards and Units are equipped with communications protocols to send and receive data with OMRON CompoNet components (e.g., Temperature Controllers, Digital Panel Indicators, Barcode Readers, and Modems). Therefore, data communications with OMRON components can be achieved by simply setting the data to be sent or received, and executing the PMCR(260) instruction.

The following products support protocol macros.
