  3. LMAO! I did not catch that. It's not a bad reference since with every Microsoft update; you do not know if it will sink or swim.
  4. With the new windows 10 update that rolled out; it breaks the USB to UART Bridge drivers. If this happens, confirm that you have a yellow exclamation point in the device manager indicating that there is a driver issue. If so, disconnect the PLC/USB cord from your PC, download the newest CP210x drivers from Silicon Labs https://www.silabs.com/community/interface/knowledge-base.entry.html/2016/12/30/downloading_cp210xd-ek07. Unzip the new driver, right click on the yekkow exclmation point | select update driver | Browse my computer for diver software | navigate to path of unzipped driver folder | then "next" your way through the install. NOTE: This is not for the USB to SERIAL. This is only for USB direct to the PLC.
  5. I have similar applications. Here is how I handle them. First off depending on the drive you are using, I program one of the outputs on the drive to ZERO SPEED and not allow it to change until it is at zero, secondly you can add a TD and give it a few seconds before it starts . As for the ramp down, I would program the ramp down in the drive. It's much easier and you have more control that way. As Ausman said E-Stops!! never forget
  6. Hey Aus, THANK YOU! thats not the most ideal way, but is is a way and I'll take it. Ihave a PLC on my desk I test with, then want to transfer snippets to the actual program (as many do). @Cara Bereck Levy Hopefully our bestest, most awesome, favorite, and elegant moderator reads this and puts in a feature request for us. It would be nice to have tabs of open programs then it would be in the same running application that would allow us to copy and paste. Cara, did I mention that you are our favorite?
  7. Is there a way of have two instances of the visilogic application running so you can copy and past from one to the other?

    Upload Download the Unitronics way.

    I would like to see them reversed to the proper way, but Unitronics is like a pretty girl, you learn a minor blemish does not make her any less pretty, or in this case any less useful.
  9. I over complicated this entire thing. So for anyone else trying to get degrees from the hypotenuse and the opposite side this is how I did it. The first subtraction block was done to bring my vertex to 0
  10. Thanks Joe. That will return radians? I can use the degrees function to go back?
  11. Thanks guys, 1.25ms should be fine. The max frequency will be 5. I will be using a laser fork sensor and the counts will be on a rotating disk with five 8mm slots in it. it turns at 60 RPM or 1 rev a sec. Thanks again,
  12. Easy question, I need a lot of counters in one app. The frequency will be 4-6 counts/sec. Can I get away with just using a PNP input on this? Thanks
  13. @Cara Bereck Levy Thanks! That is pretty cool.
  14. @kratmel Absolutely, this weekend I came in and used one of the dry contacts on the drive to fire the relay for the brake. Again, one of those simple things that I did not think of. Thanks for the tip!
