PLCBUS timing

Postby Digit » Sat Aug 09, 2008 12:56 am

While working on my PLCBUS driver this evening, i was again very pleased with how it all works.
Reliability is 100% till now. I've got 7 plugin modules working for a period of 3 months now and none of them has failed yet.
And it's fast...getting back a ACK from the module itself in something like 500 ms is one of the main advantages of PLCBUS i would say.
(a small snippet from my logs;the first number on every line is in milliseconds, so you see the time from the click of a button untill the ACK takes 516 ms)
Code: Select all
39836468: ADH  : New Actordata ID=39836453, Address:D2C01 data:4F4646 (OFF)
39836468: DVC  : Device TPLC2027:D2C01 is handling the Actordata
39836468: PLCBS: Start sending Command:20230000, Retrycount=3
39836468: PLCBS: Start new PLC1141Command NetSend:0205D22023000003, Waiting for PLCBUS Response...

39836984: PLCBS: LANDataAv Start

39836984: PLCBS: Address:D2C01
39836984: IDH  : New Interfacedata ID=39836984, Address:D2C01
39836984: PLCBS: LANDataAv End
39836984: DVC  : Device TPLC2027:D2C01:Source:TPLC1141CommandHandler, Data:=D22023000020
39836984: DVC  : PinValue is:0

Now moving on to implementing automatic discovery of all PLCBUS modules attached to my powerline... sounds a bit like Plug&Play,[8D]
