There are two separate representations of the Roclink “registers” called TLPs (Type/Logical/Parameter).

They can be viewed as either Text such as AIN A1, EU – Analog Input, A1, EU value, or they can be viewed as the more commonly used numeric format 3,0,14. The Roclink Protocol Manual will use the numeric format to describe the “points” inside a floboss.

By default Roclink 800 is set to Display TLP as Text:

The Highlighted Area shows AIN A1, EU, we need to change this to default to the numeric representation.

Under Tools Click on “Options”


The options menu will allow you to change “Display TLP” to “As Number”


After this change has been made roclink will show the numeric representation of the TLP at the bottom of the “Select TLP” box.
