    Default Changing the order of Sectors in IEC 60870-5-101_104 driver

    Hello,

    I use an IEC 60870-5-101_104 driver with a great number of sectors to have connections to a device. When I create a new sector the item is shown in my device list. So the newest item is the last one, which means that this list is not assorted. I would like to have a structure in this list to keep track of all used sectors. Is it possible to change the order of sectors without deleting them and putting them into a new order? I tried to change the order in the configuration file, but it didn't work.

    Thanks

    When i'm changing the order of sectors (or devices) directly in the configuration file then it works .

    The iec870 driver stores its configuration (like most of zenon drivers) in the TXT-file which you can find in the zenon Editor in the node: Files - Drivers. Alternatively you can access the directory via shortcut Ctrl+Alt+E on project name, then .\zenon\custom\drivers\

    First make a copy of the IEC870_<driver instance name>.txt file and then edit the content manually. But very carful .

    The attached screenshot explains the relevant section in the file:

    Thank you for the quick response! My mistake was that I added a new sector, but didn't change the quantity of sections.

    What do the numbers at the beginning of the file stand exactly for? Probably the defined parameters of the device? Which number describes which parameter?
    Also what is the function of *** TLS CONTEXT *** at the end?

    If the content of configuration file is not documented then we have freedom to do any changes. You can try to guess while comparing the file with the settings in configuration dialogs, but on your own responsibility.
    We are not recommending to manually edit those files. You can easy introduce some mistakes which you will not notice then, and the driver is not making the validation of the file (it assumes that file was 100% correctly created by it-self, not eventually mistakenly by a human).

    >Also what is the function of *** TLS CONTEXT *** at the end?

    the documentation of TLS (transport layer security - IEC62351-3) in IEC870 driver and zenon IEC870Slave Process Gateway will be released with version 8.10. If you need more info right now - contact your local COPA-DATA support officially.
