Supported device types and versions


This protocol implements the server-side of Telegyr TG809 standard. There is supported a configuration in both line and system redundant configurations.

Communication line configuration


Communication station configuration


  • Communication protocol: Telegyr 809 Server
  • Address of station: integral number from the interval 0-1023. In protocol, the address of station is used as number of station (Stationsnummer).

Station protocol parameters


Configuration dialog window - tab "Protocol parameters".
They influence some optional parameters of protocol.

Table 1

ParameterMeaningUnitDefault value
Communication LineNumber from range 0-255 which defines the parameter "Communication number" in the protocol telegrams.-0
Line Alive TimeoutTimeout for detection of failure of master side of communication.
After elapsing the timeout since receiving the last sign, the communication line is considered to be nonfunctional. If all lines did not work (relates to the redundant lines), all stations switch to the status of communication error StCOMERR, and after elapsing other such interval, switch to StHARDERR status.

Read Wait TimeoutDelay between reading data from communication line.ss.mss00.050
MOXA TimeoutTimeout for detection of failure of one communication line on the redundant lines. After elapsing the timeout since receiving the last character, the communication is redirected to other communication line, i.e. reading/writing will be done via secondary / backup device.mi:ss00:10
Max Data SizeMaximum number of data bytes in a single packete. This parameter defines approximate value (can be exceeded by a data size of one output I/O tag). The standard defines maximum data size equal to 255 bytes but decreasing the packet size practically solved a particular packet fragmentation problem in WAN communication.-210
System Redundancy: Manages A Status AddressHW address of output I/O tag with the status of system redundancy. Format of HW address is Rack.Chassis.Slot.Point or Rack-Chassis-Slot-Point, for example "0-2-15-1".
Parameter is useful for Serial System&Line Redundant and SerialOverUDP System&Line Redundant lines, which enable the communication with two independent control systems (e.g. main dispatching SED in Žilina and backup dispatching SED in Bratislava).
Parameter enables to ignore values that are received from the control system, which is inactive just now, providing that the application knows which one is active or inactive. It can know it e.g. based on the value of input I/O tag with defined value.
This feature (information about active control system) will work providing that output I/O tag of Dout type with the same HW address as defined in this parameter must be on the station and the application must write True into it if "System A" is active, or False if "System B", configured on the system redundant line, is active.

Is SubstationOn every line ther should be only one station (called the main station) that has this parameter set to False. All other stations (called substations) should have this parameter set to True. This emulates the situation when there may be several substations behind the main station. Requests from the master which do not contain the station number, are related to the main station.-False
Scan-only ModeIn scan-only mode data is being read and analysed, but no data is sent. Combined with the parameter Full Debug this parameter enable KOM process to be used as an analyser of TG809 communication.-False
No Point No AnswerIf the I/O tag with an address that is in the request from the TG809 server is not found, the KOM process will not send any response.
This behavior is not according to the standard but it can be used, for example, to simulate unconfirmed commands.
-False
Full DebugEnables detailed listings about sending and receiving values.-False

I/O tag configuration


Possible I/O tags: Ai,Ao,Di,Dout,QI,Ci,Co

Address of I/O tags: either software or hardware address

  • software address - number from interval 0 - 32767
  • hardware address - consists of the following components:
    • Rack - number from interval 0 - 3
    • Chassis - number from interval 0 - 5
    • Slot - number from interval 0 - 15
    • Point - number from interval 0 - 31

For I/O tags of Ai and Ci type, you must define minimum and maximum range - Min and Max. The values will be calculated for this range (from range -32000 … 32000 supported by protocol).
For I/O tags of Ao and Co, you must define minimum and maximum range - Min and Max. Same as for input I/O tags but in addition the values out of defined range will be sent as the values -32000 or 32000.

I/O tags of Dout type have supplementary options:

  • "Four-criterion indication". If it is active, VKM bit is set when sending the value. This bit indicates that value is 4-state (Quadrat). This status allows, in addition to False (binary 01) and True (binary 10) to transmit also Invalid (binary 00 or 11).
  • "Indication with time tag". If it is active, IAC 2 message (Indication with time tag) containing the time stamp (hour/min/sec/ms) will be used to send the value. If it is inactive, IAC 1 message (Indication without time tag) is used.
