ZETSENSOR digital sensors

This section contains description of data transmission protocols, features of settings modification, examples of integration to third-party systems, and examples of programming.

PROTOCOL DESCRIPTION

  • DATA AND DESCRIPTOR STRUCTURE FORMAT
    ZETSENSOR data structure format. The DEV_PAR (a structure with the sensor ID data) and CHANNEL_PAR (a structure with the sensor’s measuring channel settings) structures.
  • MODBUS PROTOCOL FOR RS-485
    A standard set of commands, formats of command requests and command responses. Peculiarities of the ZETSENSOR configuration modification
  • CAN PROTOCOL FOR ZETSENSOR DIGITAL UNITS
    CAN parameters, packet format, broadcast packets, node activity and time synchronization packets, streaming packets, command packets, and service packets.

    Data acquisition from the ZETSENSOR digital sensors via CAN.

  • OPC PROTOCOL
    Operation in OPC server mode is supported.

EXAMPLES OF INTEGRATION TO THIRD-PARTY SYSTEMS

  • Operating ZET 7070 as a COM port
    for Windows OS
  • Operating ZET 7070 as a COM port
    for Linux OS
  • CONNECTING ZETSENSOR TO THE MODBUS POLL VIA THE MODBUS PROTOCOL
    Operation procedure when a ZETSENSOR device is connected to Modbus Poll via the Modbus protocol
  • CONNECTING ZETSENSOR TO THE SIMPLY MODBUS VIA THE MODBUS PROTOCOL
    Interoperation with ZETSENSOR using the Simply Modbus program
  • Connecting ZETSENSOR to TRACE MODE via the Modbus protocol
    An example of connecting the ZETSENSOR digital sensor via the Modbus protocol using ZET 7070 (USB-RS-485) interface converter in the TRACE MODE integrated development environment.
  • Connecting ZETSENSOR to TRACE MODE via OPC server
    An example of connecting ZETSENSOR to TRACE MODE via OPC server
  • Connecting ZETSENSOR to MasterSCADA via OPC server
    Connecting the ZETSENSOR digital sensor via an OPC server in the MasterSCADA SCADA-based system taking ZET 7052 (three-component linear acceleration digital sensor) + ZET 7070 (USB-RS485 interface converter) as example
  • Connecting ZETSENSOR to Network Enabler Administrator
    Using the ZET 7076 Ethernet↔RS-485 interface converter
