In the tab Advanced you carry out settings for the on change communication with external
applications (Binding, zenon driver, ...).
The following settings are available:
Max. length of the system queue. In this queue e.g.
overflows of the event queue are buffered.
1024 ... 65520
Length of the alarm queue (not used at the moment)
0 ... 65520
Number of possible connections (cannot be changed)
4 ... 65535
Length of the event queue:
In this queue the events of the straton Runtime event severs
are written. From there they are sent via TCP.
If this queue overflows, the overflow messages are written
in the system queue.
0 ... 65535
Length of the info queue. In this queue the messages to the
straton Workbench are buffered.
1024 ... 65520
Buffer size of the events per cycle. This parameter defines
how much many variables are handled by the event server
128 ... 65535

You administer the settings for straton logging and the drivers with the diagnosis viewer. In doing so,
each straton Runtime and each bus driver receives their own connection to the diagnosis server as a
diagnosis client. This does not include obsolete drivers, for example those from a third-party
the serial number and the activation number in the according dialog. If no licence number is available,
click on Demo Version (on page 34).
For an autarkic installation (straton runs on a PC without the zenon Runtime) you can again enter the
serial number and the activation number directly in the installation dialog.
You also can do the licensing later with the Licence order. Open the license order in the Windows start
Programs -> COPA-DATA -> Licensing
. For later licensing the serial
number and the activation number are entered in this dialog. The
procedure is finished with OK.
For soft-licensing the so-called licence number must be read from the hardware configuration of your
In the zenon Editor you can open the dialog for licensing using
. You can enter the serial number and the activation key here.
Open the user interface of the straton Runtime by clicking on the straton Runtime icon in the system
tray. Then click on the top left corner an select About STRATONRT.... A window appears with
information about version and license of the straton Runtime.
straton Runtime starts in Demo Mode if you enter a false (or no) serial number or a false (or no)
activation key or if no dongel is connected. The Demo Mode stops the straton Runtime after 15 minutes.
With a special demo serial number the straton Runtime runs continuously for 30 days. After these 30
days then the maximal time of the straton Runtime is again 15 minutes.
You did not buy the straton Runtime license but you own a valid zenon Runtime license. Then a mini
version of the straton Runtime is licensed automatically. With the mini version up to eight TAGs
(=variables) can be used by straton via input/output mechanisms. TAGs are variables of field bus drivers
and variables with profiles (e.g. B&B profile straton).
four variables for the communication straton <= > zenon
four variables for the communication straton <= > Profibus
This equals the maximum number of eight TAGs (4 + 4 = 8).
The straton Runtime supports multi-instances and therefore needs parameters (transfer parameters),
There are three possibilities in order to start the straton Runtime:
with the help of the zenon Runtime
with the help of the straton Runtime Manager
in a DOS Shell/BAT-file
