(VID-DD-0008) - This video gives basic information on Using the Peerlink "Share Data w/PLCs" instruction in the Do-more designer software. It presents information that is commonly missed by users. This WILL NOT be a complete tutorial for the instruction but rather a supplement to the help file and customer experience.
** Software Version used in this video: Do-more Designer 2.0
This instruction is used to share data between Do-more controllers or DirectLOGIC systems that use ECOM100 modules. This data is sent with TCP/IP broadcast packets. Because this is a broadcast, that limits the transmission to the local broadcast domain. Each member on this domain will receive data from the other publishing members, and can optionally send data to the other members by selecting one or more of the blocks. Only one member can publish to each block. To join the Peerlink network just place the Peerlink instruction into your ladder code and if you want to publish data select one or more of the 16 blocks. Please see the help file for a list of the status flags for this instruction.
