How to communicate with Turbo PMAC2 in my own application?

Hello,

 

I'm trying to develop a Python application that will control the Turbo PMAC2 and some other devices.

This Turbo PMAC2 is installed inside a machine, and works very well with PWin32Pro2.

I'm trying to use a dll to do this, is this the best option?

I downloaded a lot of Turbo PMAC2 manuals, and I found the PComm32PRO manual:

http://www.deltatau.com/manuals/pdfs/PCOMM32%20PRO.pdf?id=635415374139453187

But a think it's obsolet, it talks about the PComm32.dll, and some examples that should be in the library, but it doesn't exist. I found just the PComm32W.dll and PcommServer.exe (that starts when I try to open a communication with PMAC2).

These two, PWin32PRO2, are installed by PMAC Executive Pro2 Suite.

 

Sometimes my application works, and I can read and change the value of a P variable(it was all that I could do until now), but it's totally unstable. It just works when it wants.

 

Is there a new manual or a example about how to do this?

Is a dll the best option?

 

*I can not uninstall PWin32PRO2. The machine must work in the both options without reconfiguration.

**The conection is USB.

 

Thank you!

The best way to communicate with Turbo PMAC while having Pewin32Pro2 active is to use PcommServer.exe (Pcomm32Pro2 library).

 

Pcommserver.exe is a COM Interface. It does have wrapper dll (Pcomm32W.dll). The wrapper dll has some (not all) core functions exposed for external applications.

 

Pcommserver.exe (Pcomm32Pro2 library) is a purchasable product with Delta Tau part number 3A0-9PPRO2-35x. I comes with multiple examples in Microsoft C++, C#, VB, and CBuilder along with complete documentation.

 

I have attached a sample template for PcommServer based example using C++ for your reference.
