PG5 2.0 parts

S – Service Online Tools (Does not require a license)

The S - Service Online Tools are a subset of the PG5 installation. It is for customer and service personal that only need up- or downloading a built PG5 project to a PCD.

The S - Service Online Tools consist of:

 

Data Transfer (It is an application for saving and loading a PCD's data values (Register, Flag, Timer, Counter, Input/Output, Text and Data Block) to and from text files (.dt5))

Firmware Downloader (This utility allows you to download the firmware in all PCD’s that have firmware in flash. It also supports downloading the BACnet configuration.)

Online Configurator (It allows the connected PCD's hardware and communications to be configured online. It also has functions for displaying information from the PCD, uploading/downloading programs and data, controlling the device (Run/Stop/Restart), and even for downloading new firmware into the PCD.)

Online Debugger (It is a powerful online debugger for testing and configuring Saia PCD Instruction List programs. It is a 'stand-alone' application which does not need the PG5 Project Manager. If opened from Project Manager, it uses the online settings of the selected device.)

 

Note that all these tools are part of PG5 (included in the PG5 Controls Suite DVD). In case PG5 is already installed, the installation of the S - Service Online Tools won't have any effect.

To download this tool see below.

 

S – Web Editor (Does not require a license)

The S – Web Editor 5.15.0221 can e.g. be used for modifying the S-Energy Manager Web project.

Note that the S-Web Editor is part of PG5 (included in the PG5 Controls Suite DVD). In case PG5 is already installed, the installation of the S – Web Editor won't have any effect

To download the Editor see below.

Good to know

With PG5 2.0 SP2 a new USB device driver is installed. If PG5 1.4.300 is installed on the same PC, its SCommDll needs to be updated using the according installer distributed together with the setup from PG5 2.0.220.

 

The main new features of the SP2 (PG5 2.0.220) are:

  • New FBoxes for the new PCD7.L79xN
