SIMOREG DC-MASTER Operating Instructions
15.4 Setting up an online link to the SIMOREG
DriveMonitor always starts in offline mode. For this reason, you must open or create an offline file
which has been set up specifically for the device and software version:
To open an existing offline file:
• File - Open <select parameter file>
(if the parameter file has been created in DriveMonitor, the drive type SIMOREG DC-MASTER
and the software version used must then be set. If you want to set up an online link to the
drive, you must click the ONLINE button and enter the bus address set in the device)
To create a new offline file:
• File - New - Based on Factory Setting <select drive type and software version> . (If you want
to set up an online link to the drive, you must click the ONLINE button and enter the bus
address set in the device)
<enter file name>
• File - New - Empty Parameter Set <select drive type and software version> (If you want to set
up an online link to the drive, you must click the ONLINE button and enter the bus address set
in the device) <enter file name>
The data regarding drive type and software version are stored in the DNL file. You can then start
the program in future by the normal Windows method, i.e. by double clicking on a DNL file, without
further system queries.
You can open the ONLINE Settings screen under Options to check, and if necessary change, the
interface parameters such as COM port and baud rate.
You can set the bus address and number of transmitted process data under File - Drive Settings.
To switch to online mode, select View - Online or the appropriate button on the toolbar. If the
message "Device is not networked" then appears, then "Offline mode" is currently selected. You
can switch to online mode under File - Drive Settings.
