To set up the communication with the device, open the Settings popup by pressing the following button in the menu bar:

The Settings popup is a general setup tool of the PC utility software. In this popup, settings related to communication, trending and other general settings can be configured.

Most devices support RS232/RS485 communication via a serial port. This port might be virtual, so it is mapped to the USB port by a driver installed with the PC Utility software. The settings are almost the same whether the physical connection is an RS232/RS485 connection, or it is a virtual com port exposed by a physical USB connection; the only difference is that a Modbus id must be specified for the RS232/RD485 connection. Some devices also support TCP-IP communication. For all types of ports, the communication protocol is Modbus. For a serial connection the baud rate is automatically configured to that set in the controller.
