In the block object properties, there are "parameters, line definition and notes" windows.
The parameter definitions are explained in the table.
|= Parameters=||= Explanation=|
|Block Name||Holds the block name abbreviation of and number information.|
|Register Initial Value||Used to make block custom settings. (There are different parameters depending on the characteristics of the blocks.)|
|Persistence||If the device is restarted for any reason, it will keep the last data. The persistence parameter is in the "register, table and counter" blocks.|
|Load Initial Value||Persistence is significant for active situation.When a project is loaded for a variable whose persistence is active;if beenselected, the first value loaded with the block is overwritte with the value stored with persistence. If not selected, the value retained with persistence is preserved.|
|Add to log-record memory||It is used to save the block data to the log memory at the specified trigger times.|
|Sync with DevNET||It must be selected if the block is used with the DevNET communication protocol.|
|No View (LCD and WEB interface)||It should be selected so that the block name and its value are not displayed on the screen in the devices with LCD screen or WEB interface.|
|View Only (LCD and WEB interface)||LCD screen or WEB interface, the block name and value should be selected for monitoring from the screen. The "line definition" should be added to the block name to appear on the screen.|
|View and Set (LCD and WEB interface)||In devices have LCD screen or WEB interface, if want displayed and changed on screen for block's name and value, it is should be select.The "line definition" should be added to the block name to appear on the screen.|
- Line Definition
Block outputs are used when you want to be identified by a name determined by the programmer. Line definitions have multiple uses.
1 - The "line definition" is used in the blocks where the outputs are to be connected with the "line label" to the entrance of another block.
2 - If the block value is to be monitor and changed from devices with LCD screen feature or WEB interface."line definition" should be added
3 - If the blocks in Mikrodiagram will be defined in the "variable address table", the "line definition" must be added to the blocks.
It is used by the user to write notes into the block.
Cut-copy-paste-delete operations can be performed on the blocks used in Mikrodiagram project. Cut-copy-delete operations can be done by right clicking on the block. For the "Paste" option, right click on an empty area in Mikrodiagram workspace and select the "paste" option.

- Line Description
It is used to modify and follow line definitions defined in blocks.
The line definitions can be changed from the block object properties and the block properties table.
- Variable Type
There are 4 types of variables in Mikrodiagram: logic, word, float, long type. It is used to monitor and transfer variable types of blocks to CSV.
- Logging Active& DevNET
It can be selected from the block object properties and the "Add log record to memory and synchronize with DevNET" options can also be changed from the block properties table.
- Online View Active
It is possible to select the blocks to be watched and changed in the program via USB or TCP port. With "Turn on / off online monitoring for all blocks", online monitoring can be activated for all the blocks in the program, as well as the blocks that need to be monitored from the "online monitoring active" section can be selected.
VARIABLE ADDRESS TABLE[edit | edit source]
1- In DNP3, IEC101 and IEC104 protocols, variable addresses, types and data transmission methods are used.
2- It is used in Modbus Protocol when it is desired to define a different Modbus address than the standard modbus register addresses on the blocks.
3- It can be used to read data recorded in table blocks starting from a specified address determined by TCP communication.
4- In Mikrodiagram, "block definition" must be made to blocks so that blocks can be defined in variable address table.
It is used naming for blocks transferred to the table.
- Start Address
It is used for variable address definitions.
If MODBUS is selected as the protocol type, the selected start address must be selected differently from the block addresses used in Mikrodiagram. (Variable addresses in Mikrodiagram, word: 4000, binary: 1000, analog: 6000, long: 8000).
- Line Label
Block selection is made, defined in the variable address table.
In Mikrodiagram should be defined "line definition" to blocks to be transferred to the variable address tab.
- Point Count
The number of addresses to be identified from the starting address added to the variable address table is determined. If table blocks are added to the variable address table, the number of points to be read according to the size of the table is automatically defined. (If the starting address is 10000 and the dot number is 4, the defined addresses are 10000, 10001, 10002 and 10003.)
- Protocol Type
Communication protocol type selection of blocks transferred to variable address table is configured.
- Object Type
Object (variable) types that differ in each protocol are selected.
- Object Class
Object classification definitions
- Send On Trigger
In DNP3, IEC 101, IEC104 protocols, the data added to the variable address table at specific time intervals are used to sending to client of the datas. For example, if a trigger is detected for 10 seconds on the side of the IEC slave block and the defined block in the variable address table is "send on trigger"; The block value is sent to the client at intervals of 10 seconds.
- Send Method/Change Value
In DNP3, IEC101, IEC104 protocols, the block values defined in the variable address table are used sending to client the when the change exceeds the specified value according to the determined change method. For example, if the sending method is "change level" and the change value is 4, then the value client is sent if the difference between the first value and the value to be sent is greater than 4. (If the first value is 15 and the last value is less than 11 or greater than 19, is sent.
- Example 1
In the sample; RTD block value in which the ambient temperature value is read is defined in the variable address table by the IEC104 protocol. In the variable address table, the address of the address is 12000 and the client will be sent when the temperature value changes by more than 1 ° C (as the value changes). "Send on trigger" is selected in the variable address table, but it is not active because the "Ttk" input of IEC104 slave block is left empty.
- Example 2
In the sample; The analog input block values are printed in an analog table at the top and read from the address 11000 defined in the variable address table with 5 modbus protocol from the address. If the size of the analog table block is 20 bytes and 1 analog value is 4 bytes, 5 analog values are recorded in the table. Since the tabloda has 5 analogue values, the analogue table is selected as the line tag, so that the data on the tabloda is automatically displayed in the "variable address table" "dot number". The "send on trigger", "sending method" and "exchange value" sections are not active due to the Modbus TCP slave protocol feature.
DISPLAY OPTIONS[edit | edit source]

With the USB connection, the device restarts automatically when the project uploading process to the device is 100% complete.
LOADING PROJECT WITH TCP CONNECTION[edit | edit source]
TCP connection between device and computer After the connection is establised, clicked on the "send to device" button.
The project loading process must be waited to be 100% complete.
Unlike the case of loading the project with USB, device restart is performed manually.
After the project loading process is completed 100%, click "connection" from the "device configuration", click "restart device" and the project loading process is completed.
13 THE AT COMMANDS[edit | edit source]
In Mikrodev products,"AT Commands" are used for device version, IP, clock etc. informations with USB port connection to read and make settings.
AT commands can be defined in the "Mikroterminal or Mikrodev Assistant" program.
MIKROTERMINAL INTERFACE[edit | edit source]
The mikroterminal program can be accessed from Mikrodiagram Tools menu.
- Opening the USB COM Port
To open the COM port on the mikroterminal, select the port where the connection between the device and the computer is established in the "port name" section. (The connection port between the device and the computer can be controlled from the "device manager".)
When the "Open" tab is clicked, the COM port information displayed in the "console window" is displayed.
- Sending The AT Command
With AT commands, the current settings on the device can be read or the desired values can be written to the device.
Click on the "Read" button to read the current settings on the device. When the "Read" button is clicked, the current value in the device is displayed in the "console window".
In case the current settings of the device are to be changed by AT commands, the value to be changed is written on the window, then the "Write" button is clicked. The value written is displayed in the "console window". If the write operation is successful, the command “OK" is printed in the console window.
- Custom Command Window
AT commands can also be sent from the custom command input window.
If the current value in the device is to be read, the window "AT + SPECIALTY =?" is written, the "send" button is clicked, the current value is displayed in the console window.
If you want to write a value from the device specific command window, the command "AT + SPECIALTYPE = WRITE KOMUT" is defined and the value written when the "send" button is clicked is displayed in the console window.
If the write operation is successful, the command "SPECIALTY = OK" is printed in the console window.
List of The AT Command[edit | edit source]
Some of the AT commands used in Mikrodev products are only readable and some have both readable and writeble capabilities.
The commands on the AT command list differ according to the devices.
The AT commands used in GSM, Ethernet, Wi-Fi enabled products are indicated in the headers (E / G / W).
In Mikrodiagram, it is used to read block value and write block value by using "block numbers" of door types.
If the value is to be written, "AT + FBD = BLOKNO, VALUE" is defined and clicked on the "write" command.
If the block value is to be read, "AT + FBD = BLOKNO,?" is defined and clicked on the "write" command.
The "read" command is not used in the AT + FBD command, only the "write" command is used.
Since the 3000 no of block is a register block, both writing and reading can be done.
When "AT + FBD = 3000,10" is entered and "summer" button is clicked, "10" value is written on block. Value information written is displayed as "FBD = OK" in the console window.
If you want to read the block value of no 3000 , "AT + FBD = 3000,?" is written and when the "write" command is clicked, the block value is displayed as "FBD = 10" in the console window.
Used to identify local IP to devices with Ethernet or Wi-Fi capability
To change the local IP, type "AT + LOCALIP = IP" and click "write" command to write IP to the device.
Click on the "read" command to read the current IP value.
It is used to define the MAC address for devices with Ethernet or Wi-Fi capability.
Numbers can be defined in hexadecimal.
The MAC address can be changed by typing "AT + MAC" command and clicking "write". The current MAC address can be read with "read" command.
It is used to define gateway to devices with Ethernet or Wi-Fi capability.
In a local network, the gateway is usually the IP address of the modem.
AT + GATEWAY "command to read and write the gateway address.
It is used to define "netmask" for devices with Ethernet or Wi-Fi capability.
Netmask can be read and written with "AT + NETMASK" command.
It is used to start and stop the online viewing from the mikroterminal while online viewing is performed in Mikrodiagram.
Online monitoring is started when AT + ONLINE = 1 command is sent.
Online monitoring is stopped when AT + ONLINE = 0 command is sent.
Mikrodev products software and hardware version information can be accessed with AT + VERSION command.
The command "AT + VERSION" is only readable. The write operation can not be performed.
The "Quick user guide" contains detailed information on the version.
The Mikrodev products serial number information can be accessed with the command "AT + SERIALNO".
The command "AT + SERIALNO" is only readable. The write operation can not be performed.
The "Quick user guide" contains detailed information on the serial number.
Connection status check of Mikrodev products with GSM data exchange feature is done by "AT + CONNECTION" command.
The AT + CONNECTION command has only readability.
The AT + CONNECTION command receives even-numbered values 0-8.
The AT + CONNECTION command response table is below.
|= AT Command=||= Answer=||= Explanation=|
|AT+CONNECTION||4||The signal quality is normal, the device is trying to get IP.|
|AT+CONNECTION||6||The device has received an IP. The connection between the device IP and another IP is not established.|
|AT+CONNECTION||8||The device has received an IP. The device is connected to another point.|
AT command list is reached. Information on the use of commands is also provided.
Writable AT commands, AT commands giving status information are provided.
With the AT + SETTIME command, the device real time clock can be read and written.
When the AT + SETTIME command "read" is clicked, the current time of the device readable in the console window, the date and time to be set to the command window; When set to "dd-mm-yyyy h:m:s" and the "summer" command is sent, the time set is displayed in the console window.
If the device is in error mode, it is used to learn the error code.
If AT + ERROR = 0, then there is no error condition.
AT + ERROR = 61 means that the device does not have Mikrodiagram installed
The AT + ERROR command is only a readable command.
|= Error Kodu=||= Açıklama=|
|0||There is no error condition.|
|61||Device does not have Mikrodiagram installed|
The AT + DEFAULT command is used to reset the unit to factory settings.
When AT + DEFAULT = 1 command is written and "write" is clicked, the device is restored to factory settings.
When the device is restored to factory settings, the settings made with the AT commands are restored to factory settings, the most recently loaded Mikrodiagram project is deleted from the device.
After the command is sent, the device drops to error ERROR = 61
The command AT + DEFAULT is only writable.
The AT + RESET command is used for software restart of the device.
When AT + RESET = 1 is typed and the "send" button is clicked, the device is restarted.
The AT + PLCRESET command is used when TCP communication protocols require the device to be reset after a certain period of time.
If AT + PLCRESET = 0 command is sent to the device, the command is disabled.
The AT + PLCRESET command runs at a minimum 60 second (sec) scale.
To learn the current PLCRESET command programmed in the device, enter AT + PLCRESET =? command can be sent to the device.
The AT + CONFIGPORT command is used to identify the port number used in situations where a TCP port connection from Mikrodiagram is desired to be installed on devices with a TCP communication port (Ethernet, GSM, Wi-Fi).
The factory default ConfigPort number is 502.
It can be changed with AT + CONFIGPORT command.
AT + = CONFIGPORT? command can be viewed with the current configport.
CONFIGPORT is disabled when a selected TCP socket block is added to the device as a server Mikrodiagram. The device's listening port is the listening port that is inserted into the TCP socket block.
AT + FORMATFS = 1 command is used to format Mikrodev products. When the AT + FORMATFS = 1 command is sent to the device, the firmware will be deleted, so it is necessary to load the firmware again to program the device.
AT + CANTIMEOUT command Mikrodev is used to protect the position of the inputs and outputs on the expansion units for a specified period of time in case of communication failure between CPU modules and expansion units.
The CANTIMEOUT time runs in millisecond (ms) time scale.
When the communication link between the input modules and the CPU breaks, inputs up to the number of CANTIMEOUT entered into the CPU do not change position in the software.
When the communication link between the output modules and the CPU breaks, the outputs do not change positions as long as the CANTIMEOUT times entered in the output modules.
The CANTIMEOUT time input to the CPU is used for the input modules, the CANTIMEOUT time input to the output modules for the output modules is used.
For example, if AT + CANTIMEOUT = 60000 (ms) is defined for the CPU and expansion units, the incoming digital input signal position is maintained through the expansion unit until 60000 (ms) (1 minute) after communication between the digital input (DI) expansion unit and the CPU is interrupted. 60000 ms. After the CANTIMEOUT time has elapsed, the digital inputs are pulled to logic (0) if no connection to the expansion unit is still present.
The data package (internet package) is the IP of the SIM card. Supplied by the GSM operator.
It can only be read by AT + GPRSIP command. Changed.
If the device is to be used as a server, a SIM card with a fixed IP address must be provided.
When a SIM card with a fixed IP is provided, APN information must also be received from the GSM operator
AT + GPRSAPN command is used to define APN for Mikrodev products with GSM TCP communication feature.
Since the APN that needs to be defined varies according to the SIM card operator used in the device,it must be supplied from the customer service of the relevant GSM operator.
The APN has to be defined if the used device is to be used as a server in the TCP communication with the GSM line (if the device will connect to another IP).
Note: The SIM card used in the APN-defined device must have a static IP
It is the value of the GSM signal quality (the power of the GSM line) that the devices with GSM capability are installed. It can be between -1 and 31.
Even if the SIM card is not inserted, the value can be read while the GSM antenna is connected. (Emergency calls are used on mobile phones when the SIM card is not inserted.)
AT + CSQ is only readable command.
The pull chart is as follows.
|= Command=||= Signal quality=||= Explanation=|
It is used for SIM card inquiry in Mikrodev products with GSM hardware.
With "AT + SIM =?" read only command. The value can not be written.
If the answer to the command is SIM = 1, it indicates that the SIM card is correctly installed and is fault-free.
The response to the command is SIM = 0 to indicate that the SIM card is not inserted, is incorrectly installed or is defective.
It is used to identify the WI-FI network name to be included in WI-FI enabled products.
In the "AT + WIFISSID" command window, the WI-FI name is written, the "write" command is clicked,
When you want to read the current WI-FI SSID, click "AT + WIFISSID" "read" command.
It is used to describe the password of the WI-FI network to be included in WI-FI-enabled products.
AT + WIFIPSSW WI-FI password is written into the command window, click on the "write" command,
When the current WI-FI password is desired to be read, the AT + WIFIPSSW "read" command is clicked.
For products with RTD temperature sensor input, temperature sensor selection is made.
Hardware must be manufactured in accordance with the temperature sensor of the product.
The PT100 temperature sensor can be used if AT + TEMPTYPE = 0.
The NTC temperature sensor can be used if AT + TEMPTYPE = 1.
The PT1000 temperature sensor can be used if AT + TEMPTYPE = 2.
Hardware product code inquiry for the products in Mikrodev product family is made.
The code that starts with the letter "p" (p42, p46, etc.) in the product embedded software (MP201_E_s11.09p42) must match the AT + PRODUCTNO code.
AT + PRODUCTNO is the only readable command.
It is used to activate the "pulse train output" and "axis control" blocks.
AT + PTO = 1 command is activated. AT + PTO = 0 disable the command.
For current status inquiry, "AT + PTO =?" Command can be sent.
It is used to monitor the active connections of TCP socket blocks in Mikrodiagram project.
When AT + SOCKET = <"TCP Socket Block" Block Number> command is sent to the device, the connections made from the relevant TCP socket block are displayed.
Those with status "1" indicate that the connection exists. The "status" states, which are different from "1", indicate that the link already existed, but that the link broke down before the specified time.
It shows how many times the device is restarted after Mikrodiagram project is loaded. The first value is 1 since the device is restarted after the mikrordiagram project has been loaded.
Writable and readable command.
AT + = POWERCOUNT? , The current value is queried, and the desired value can be written with the command AT + POWERCOUNT = <Set value>
