I have now a new more powerful version that read settings from the panel. It emulates the Powerlink mode. This version is working very well for me since several weeks/months. The version is finished at around 95% but I don't really remember what remains to do...
I can publish a new JAR for testing. As I got absolutely no feedback on the Google group, I thought this binding has no interest for anyone except me.
The main remaining problem is an incompatibility with OH2. At startup, the binding at a certain time tries to set items but I got errors (items not registered), while it is working perfectly in OH1. I will try again with OH2 in debug mode. The alternative would be to add a new binding setting to delay the setting of items. It would be required only in OH2.
As I understood, my PR for OH1 will be rejected if my binding is not compatible with OH2. So I have not yet created a PR.
