    • It would appear that the August cumulative update is breaking a host of things.  As well as issues that it appears to be creating in Unitronics land, I also had the link below drawn to my attention. Tread carefully on any update installation and always have a full drive copy to go back to...not just a restore point etc! I cannot believe how M$oft appears to be so blase/arrogant about the effects such significant changes will have.  It is the same attitude as previous A/Vs I've had in years gone by, where they let a problem in and then try to unsuccessfully fix it, rather than stopping it getting in in the first place. cheers, Aus https://www.i-programmer.info/news/177-windows-8/13017-visual-basic-problems-from-windows-update.html
    • I have never worked with Factory IO and can't do physical trials.  And I am mainly a 485 RTU user.  So this is a bit of a learning curve for me as well, just for interest's sake. 1.  You want the PLC to be master.  I still come back to the setup naming conventions above where it looks like you have Factory IO is a master as well. 2.  OK.  Thought it would be part of a bigger network. 3.  All ports throughout your program.  Inits, etc. Pls post your latest program, as I am still working on your original and agree with Joe's call on the connect.  Lastly, and likely the most important observation, to my TCP/IP modbus inexperienced eye you are trying to do things using Calls with wrong naming conventions and means of doing things that are Unitronics unique.   Your R/W mix is still calling the Factory IO as slave, and apart from this error, this procedure I did not think possible other than b/n Unitronics stuff.  You will likely need to break it up into separate calls. cheers, Aus
    • Thanks Joe After some experimentation I got my string manipulation to work. I am a first time user of Unitronics. I come from the Allen Bradly word. My old bag of tricks don't work well in Unistream world. I get frustrated!! I have been using the sample files. They help some. But I still find the instruction set a bit lacking on information. For instance, The documentation did not indicate that not only will the "Store DTI to File" instruction create my .csv file but also a .csv.zip file. I needed to append the date and time to end of the customers job name. I need a unique file name that I can use to save shift production data to a memory stick. So this happened. I take from the customers spreadsheet the job name as found, (5/4 x 8 Rab Trim w Window and Side Pocket) Correct for the slash and add date and time for this as my file name, (5_4 x 8 Rab Trim w Window and Side Pocket 8-17-19_11-30AM) Add the extension, (5_4 x 8 Rab Trim w Window and Side Pocket 8-17-19_11-30AM.csv) 61 characters, I made it under the limit. But this really happens in the instruction unknown to me, (5_4 x 8 Rab Trim w Window and Side Pocket 8-17-19_11-30AM.csv.zip) If somebody would have just said you also getting a .zip file I could have saved my self a couple of hours figuring it out the hard way. Now, do you know of a way to make a LIFO Stack not get full. I cant believe this instruction does not have an unload word at it's natural end. Thanks

    • Hi all, ive been working with visilogic for a few years now and am reasonable with it. I am trying to learn uni stream. It is very different and im struggling to get my head round it, sometimes even the basics. As I don't do a lot of it I spend a few hours at it and then don't touch it for a while, I then forget what ive learned. Do yo chaps have any pointers for me please?  Im starting with a USP 070 B08. Id like to use it as a master to talk to a slave v350 over modbus just using it as a remote screen hmi for now. There doesn't seem to be any examples like there was in visilogic which is a shame as they are very useful.   Any help greatly appreciated. Steve
