  1. @Ausman and @Flex727 I am ordering one, I write a review in this post after I get it.
  2. Check this out, here is an interesting device. A bit pricey, but intriguing to play sound on command. http://www.lt-automation.com/VoiceModule.htm
  3. @Ausman Thank you so much for the detailed response. I am going to look at a device and you statedes in the first. The ease will make it worth the money.
  4. It would really be a nice feature to have recorded annunciations. If it takes 6 hours to fill a tank, a loudspeaker saying Tank Is Full, or Warning Too Hot or the like. An alarm beeper does not tell anything about the condition.
  5. Is a way to have a speaker on the PLC to play *.wav files?
  6. For that short of a dwell time; I would use a high speed input. Even if the standard input could read it, you may have missed counts because it relies on checking each scan of the program. High speed inputs are independent of the scan. You see opposed of using a high speed input. May I ask why?
  7. I also believe it will work. One router will have to be able to be changed from router to bridge mode. I would also use static ip’s on everything.
  8. Seriously, Try what Joe said. I was taught that by someone else. It can save you hours of pulling out your hair.

    I have ran into this problem. It was the USB to Serial converter. Have you tried plugging the USB directly into the mini-b on the v700? also try knocking down your baud rate down and see if that works.

  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
