Interface logging

The driver MELSECA.EXE offers the possibility to write data sent or received via a serial interface to a protocol file (log file).

In order to activate this option a section RS232LOG has to be added to the project.ini. In this section the entry LOGCOMx=0 or 1 has to be entered. X has to be replaced by the number of the desired interface. 0 switches logging off, 1 switches logging on.

If logging is switched on, a file LOG_COMxxx.TXT is generated in the directory of the driver. X is replaced by the number of the defined interface.
