(for Microsoft Excel or Open Office)
Configurator version 2.2
The Engiby Configurator, is a general tool used with various function libraries developed by Engiby. It allows you to compile an MS-Excel or Open Office file containing data point definition or parameter lists into a Saia-PCD language file for the Saia-PG5 development tool.
The concept started from the fact that system and network data points are often available in form of files during or even before the start of a PCD project. Typically data points for a supervisor system may be declared in an Excel file.
The user comfort with Microsoft Excel or Open Office is much higher than the PG5 editors when the aim is to import, generate or convert a large amount of data points. Efficiency and reliability are increased by sharing common information source between the supervisor system and the Saia-PG5 development tools.
The universality of the Engiby Configurator is reached by declaring the Excel file structure in an auxiliary file for each application type. Therefore, each application made with the Engiby Configurator will have a different structure of the Excel file and generate different code even while the Configurator is basically the same tool. You may even have a list of several applications supported by your NG-Configurator.

The data transmission can be optimised by defining the optimal mode (Cyclic, Single or Automatic on value change) and by defining a priority level (Low, Medium or High) for each data package. The S-Bus TCP application helps you to make profit of the multi-master ability of S-Bus TCP/IP. This is important to optimize the load on the LAN network.

This ways allows even more flexibility with a lot of optional parameters that can be omitted if not relevant for your case.
Another communication driver using Excel file configuration. In this case, Excel or Open Office offers a confortable mean and better overview to enter long list of message texts.
