Anyone successfully configure PM5320 MODBUS TCPIP?

Hi

We have problem reading PM5320 with MODSCAN. Is IONSetup the only tool to configure PM5320?

Re: Anyone successfully configure PM5320 MODBUS TCPIP?

YES! Finally received my unit! (Thanks )

It's very easy but, there's a trick!

I connected mine to my Com'X200. Here are the steps:

First the meter:

-- Go to Maint in the menu (Maintenance)

-- Select Setup and click OK (if you have changed the default password which is 0000)

-- Click on Comm

4063

From there you can change the IP settings of your device. Note that a static IP is called "Stored" IP on the device. Once you defined the IP, you are ready to talk to the meter. Note that there's nothing around Modbus (since modbus is not supported by this meter), so stop looking!!!

Then login on your Com'X200, go to the "Device Settings" tab, make sure the Com'X is selected in the tree, and go to the Ethernet section.

In the "No Device Connected" drop-down, select "Create a new device".

4073

In the new screen, you will have a Device Type drop down. Select the PM5320. Note that you must have at least firmware version 1.1.14. It's not there in 1.0.14!!

Then in the Configuration section, enter the IP of your meter and (drum roll) you need to enter the Slave ID. The slave ID is 255. (Thanks to for that valuable information!).

Click on Create! And you're done!!! 🙂

Works perfectly! 🙂

I've also had some issues with it while in Taiwan actually!

Was trying to connect it to the Com'X.

I've ordered one meter to do further testing but haven't received it yet.

Will keep you updated on my findings.

Anyone else?

Hi Laurent,

Some of our customers do not have ComX200. Anyway they can configure PM5320 w/o ComX 200?

Thanks

Re: Anyone successfully configure PM5320 MODBUS TCPIP?

You should be able to use ION Setup to connect to the device directly via Ethernet by adding it to a direct Ethernet site.

I'm still waiting on my shipment of the PM5340 so I can confirm that ION Setup will indeed configure these new devices but I've been configuring the PM5330 with no issues (that's serial however).

Can slave ID255 of PM5320 be changed for something below 247 (1 ideally).
