Programming an external device
Good day, ladies and gentlemen!
Please help me with the programming of the new equipment.
Hardware verification of relay protection is a https://yadi.sk/i/cXy_fTVmrpGCt
The passage on the device programming guide https://yadi.sk/i/oUZABJvXrpGBX
The manual says:
«To use RETOM-51 (61), from its programmable application, first
access the device RETOM-51 management interface (61). This requires
register the library in your installed system. The library has been tested on Windows
2000 and above. you must once to register the server
RTDI.exe run the file for execution.»
It's all good, but we use Linux. Therefore RTDI.exe is useless.
«s an example of RETOM Master Library, we explain the simplest writing
program in Excel using VBA, included in the Microsoft Office package.
The first step is to register the server RTDI
(The file that provides support for libraries
RETOM-Master) in the operating system. For this
RTDI.exe able to execute this file included in the
Package RETOM Master. Then run
MS Excel, open the VBA editor window. Choosing
click Tools-> References menu, open the window
References - VBAProject, and in the Available list,
References will find and mark a line check RTDIThe
Invisible App and RTLink line - Retom
command type library. In the absence of
entries in the list, it is necessary pressing Browse button
find files RTDI.tlb and RTLink.tlb in the installation folder
RETOM Master and select them.»
My main question at this point: «Can I use RTDI.tlb files and RTLink.tlb as a library in Linux environment?» If so. Please, enter the path to the menu, how do I register the these libraries.
Hi and welcome to devnet,
AFAIK, these OLE modules will communicate with their RTDI executable so running from Linux is likely not possible unless you use something like WINE.
You should try asking them if it's possible to get the protocol to talk with their device and implement your own library to do it.
