Proprietary host communications via TCP/IP & UDP/IP
- Non-proprietary protocols
- IEC or C/C++ programming environments
When propriety communications protocols are preferred over standard industry protocols, G-MAS provides TCP/IP & UDP/IP communication interfaces via C and C++ libraries.
A programmer need not be fluent in Socket interfaces in order to use the TCP/UDP tasks. Using this direction connection method, the programmer is able to design and implement both Client and Server sides.
The TCP Server/Client can run on G-MAS/Remote machine respectively and vice versa. A Client-side host can be a PLC device, PC, or even a G-MAS instance. UDP/EoE clients can directly communicate with drives via the EoE protocol.
The G-MAS uses several connection object classes to enable the user to act either as a client or server using UDP or TCP/IP communications.
