Just developing a Control & Monitoring Application with two new cRIO 9074 Chassis, several IO-cards including the newer 9485 and a 3rd party Touch Panel Computer I am wondering how to configure the TCE for this HW-config. Can I add not listed controllers and cRIO cards via editing a config file of the Tag Config Editor or is there a newer version of the TCE available?
Does anyone have experience in applying the suggested Machine Control Patterns to mid-size systems (approx. 300-500 IOs)?
These patterns seem to fit fantasticly to my app(s). Looking forward to answers and more discussions here!

I am developing a HMI application for TPC-2006 (using LV/ Touch Panel Module + 5 of the recomended HMI components). Most of the architecture components are now in place and working (TPD, CVT, TAE, HNE, TCE - but this with "Internal" protocol only). The challenge is to include "External" tags communicated to/from my (non-standard) PLC. I intend to use a RS232 communication protocol, similar to Modicon RTU (but simpler). The protocol reads or writes only one 16-bit register at a time (no other options). I need to communicate a fairly low number of PLC registers (up to 50). Some of these should be handled by the HMI as words, others bit-wise.
I assume I should use the CVT Client Communication, but I don't know how to "integrate" my custom-build protocol? Also, currently the TCE gives me only 2 protocol-options: "Internal" and PAC(CCC) - how to add another? A further query: Provided the protocol integration is achieved, can I run the same on 2 COM-ports simultaneously in order to communicate to 2 PLCs from the HMI?
