  1. There is way to send indirect text as body of a mail message . It requires some ladder logic. There is a function called append buffer to user file that appends a buffer to a TXT/CSV/BIN file. You can use copy tag to buffer first and then using the append buffer to file , you are basically creating a file with the tag data. (you can also use the message composer to create messages and then use Build message to put it in a buffer). This buffer is the one you will append to the user file. The file needs to be TXT. In the e-mail configuration you will click on attachment an select the file with the text you wish to send and then the option send as body. The file will not be as attachment but its content will be in the body of the mail.
  2. Hi, Are you referring to the Alarm Summary ? How are you calling the Alarm Summary display? (using action or from the banner) Please send a mail to support@unitronics.com including the application and we will test it.
  3. Hi, If you are using the Enhanced Vision PLCs then basically it comprises SD/Micro SD card slot. The ladder offer a utility to clone the PLC (program, data tables, operand values) to a file. You can trigger this utility using a schedule or other method. You can find this utility under Ladder --> SD menu --> clone
  4. Hi, PID Config struct is non retained. Running PID will use PID Config struct. Once completing Autotune or manual tune, you can use the Save PID Autotune data ladder element. This will save the PID config struct to a PID AT params struct. Then on power up you can use the Ladder element Load PID Autotune data from PID AT params struct to PID config struct. Please make sure that the PID AT Params struct is checked as retained.
  5. Hi, You can change the backlight intensity using system integer 9. The values is between 0 -100. 0 - off 100 - full
  6. Hi, You can save data table to a file using the ladder element save DT to SD. This will save the data table in UDT format. Then if you wish to edit this data in your PC , you can use the SD card suite --> UDT editor. When done you can copy the UDT file back to the SD and then using the ladder element Read UDT from SD to DT you can load the file back to the data table.
  7. Hi, As you can see in the message you wrote " it is recommended.." - it will not initialize it after download automatically.
  8. Hi, Please check the frequency. I'm not near my PC now but if I'm not wrong the units of the frequency when using V260 is 1Hz and when using the V560 is 0.1Hz.
  9. Hi, First of all use positive transition when using the keys operands in order to get a single press. Can you specify what exactly is not working? I noticed in the logic for example for key#1 that you are activating outputs according to the screen which is loaded. (I didn't see any counters)
  10. Hi, For PID there are 2 structs: PID Config - This is non retained struct which will be used for running the PID. PID AT Parmas - This struct can be marked as retained. Once you completed your manual tune or autotune, you need to use the Ladder element "save PID Autotune data" from the PID Config struct to the PID AT Parmas struct.- This will save the PID data into the retained struct. On power up you will use the ladder element "Load PID autotune data" from the PID AT Parmas struct to the PID Config struct.
  11. Hi, According to our experience Zebra printers are ASCII based languages, so the FB protocol would work for implementing the communication. We know already that customers are using applications with zebra printers before. Attached is old example I found so you need to test it and implement the formatting according to your model. Zebra Printer.vlp
  12. Hi, As I understand every time you try to open VisiLogic you get this error message. As Flex mentioned first backup your project file . Then try the follwing: 1. Open Task manager and if VisiLogic process is still running - End it. 2. Open C:\Program Files (x86)\Unitronics\Unitronics VisiLogic_C\Data\DB 3. Delete the file Current_OPLC.udb 4. Try to open VisiLogic
  13. Hi, Do you wish to communicate between the Raspberry and the V1040 using communication (TCP) or IO? If you wish to use communication you can use FB protocol IP (structure your messages ) or TCP_RAW Send & Receive. In case you wish to use IO let me know the IO specification of the Raspberry.
  14. Hi, You can use Map register bytes. (You can find this element under CANopen menu). Using this element you can set a source vector of MIs and assign & map different operands types to this vector.
  15. Hi, You can create a kind of "message box" using a rectangle and some variables on top of it. configure to each one of them Visibility bit. then when you wish to show this message box set the visibility on. Once the operator chose his option you can reset the bit and the message box will disappear. you can do the same with custom control.
  16. Hi, I contacted Zivan company who is the supplier of the Zview. In order to support Jazz Ethernet please try the following: 1. Change the attached file drvlazz.txt to drvlazz.dll and copy it to Zview\bin 2. Change the attached file Zview.txt to Zview.exe and replace in Zview\bin 3. in the project you should select as attached picture. ZView.txt drvjazz.txt
  17. Hi, I noticed in the application that you are trying to read from address 16130 in length of 10. According to the Excel file you attached before the next address after 16130 is 16140. if the frequency register is 16 bit then you need to set the length to 1 , if the frequency register is 32 bit then you need to set the length to 2.
  18. Hi, As I understand you are using the UniStream PLC as Ethernet/IP adaptor. (Other PLC will be Ethernet/IP Scanner to UniStream PLC). Once you configure the UniStream PLC as an adaptor ,you need to link tags to the input and output (You can link single tag, array or struct). After configuring the tags you will get automatically the address for input , address for output and its sizes. You can review UniLogic help and also watch the video tutorial about Ethernet/IP : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FeFdCFqsdj4&index=20&list=PLFBq_OH6_be7snAZAycZzQMvAWjHkX9Pz
  19. Hi, If you wish to log to a data table a value of 0 or 1 you can define the specific column to Boolean and store a value of MB. If you are still facing issues with logging values to the data table , attach the application and explain where is the logic that stores the data to the table.
  20. Glad to hear you got it working! BTW you can also try to increase the time out in the Remote Operator configuration if you suspect there can be a delay in the network.
  21. Hi, Which socket number are you using and how did you set it up? What do you see on the main screen of Remote Operator when trying to connect? Do you get any error message? Please make sure you are not using this socket anywhere in the program for other purpose. Make sure to set one of the sockets to TCP slave and set a PLC name. Open Remote Operator as administrator --> select TCP call, configure the IP address, port number and PLC name. You will need also to create or import the cache file.
  22. Hi, The serial modems should be connected to the UniStream using RS232 port (cannot be connected directly to the USB host port). you can connect to the USB host port USB to RS232 converter which is based on prolific 2303 and then connect the modem to the RS232. You can also use the communication modules of the UniStream in order to get RS232 port. The BGS2T is 2G modem while the EHS6T is 3G modem. Please note that the speed is still limited to the serial baud rate but.... it is important also to know if your cellular provider still support 2G network since some providers stopped or will stop supporting it.
  23. Hi Jorge, using the enhanced Vision series ,one must download the project using the option "Burn upload project" in order to be able uploading the project. Only this type of download stores the project file in the PLC. If this download type was not used then there is no option to upload the project.
  24. Hi, There is no option to use bridging over USB. Basically if you wish to perform bridging over RS485 , the PC must be part of the RS485 network but... the PLCs cannot be configured to MODBUS. (the serial port should be configured to PCOM - default protocol). As Ausman mentioned above you can connect both PLCs using CANBUS and connect the PC to one of the PLCs using RS232 or Ethernet and perform the bridging.
  25. Hi, Can you explain what do you mean by "probs"? Which Smaba model are you using? SM35 has built in RS232 port and you can add Ethernet and CANBUS ports. SM43 and SM70 have built in mini USB for programming and you can add Ethernet and CANBUS ports. In general you can communicate with the Samba both usingRS232 and Ethernet with different protocols such as MODBUS RTU, MODBUS TCP, ASCII etc..
