  1. ...I have a project...what hardware do I need?

    Ask the Unitronics staff for recommendations regarding controller type, I/O configuration, and communication methods.

    • You can take the sampler file and use the Data Converters Suite in order to export the data to Excel (So you can see the exact value at a specific time).  
    • I am trying to control a BACnet device via a GW-BAC1 gateway but it doesn't work. The device has 8 digital outputs and 8 digital inputs. See the attached YABE display. I am just trying to control the first digital output. Does any of the information in the YABE display go into the GW-BAC1 config file? Here's my config file: //================================================================================

    • In the provided example "unistream_070_Bacnet_TCP", there's a global of type "Modbus Remote Slave". When I try to add another global, "Modbus Remote Slave" doesn't appear as a type option. Since my PLC is going to be the slave, should there be a type "Modbus Remote Master"?
    • Which sections would I swap here?   //================================================================================

    • can it be that value on graph is correct when placing the pointing on the carve  but the Y axis shows incorrect value ? on the image the white line value is "1" and the Y axis shows something between 0 to 1
