I am looking for a bit of help on read/write to PAC Control using groov View on an EPIC controller.
The PAC control uses the Modbus integration kit to read/write data to a heating controller using Modbus RTU RS485.
The Modbus data is all integer format, so if a register for Temperature Setpoint has a value of 200, it actually means 20.0 Degrees!!
We move the data from the Slave into Integer tables in PAC Control.
I can’t find a gadget in groov View that will enable me to display the 200 from the Integer table as 20.0.
Am I missing something here or do I need to use PAC Control to convert all these integers into floats and link gadgets to a float table?
What is the best way of controlling the writing back to the slave using groov View?
Currently, albeit with an integer value, if we click on a gadget to set a new value, say 200 to 210, the value can get overwritten by the modbus read because we write the new value to the table index but the Modbus read then overwrites it before it is written to the slave.
Any thoughts and help would be greatly appreciated.
