  1. Do what I do, I'll say; what is your name again? Then when they answer, I say; No, I knew that, I meant your last name. Now you have both!
  2. We all need to take a moment or two and have some fun. I hope to never grow up.
  3. I am just one of those people that remembers worthless things and forgets the important stuff... like where I put my car keys, peoples names, birthdays, where I put my car keys, my anniversary, oh, and where I put my car keys.
  4. I hate to show Ebay, but I have seen these before and that was the fastest way to find one that is cheap enough for testing/playing. How about a Bluetooth-RS485 adapter. And use modbus? https://www.ebay.com/i/292546195688?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=292546195688&targetid=809743844865&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9006322&poi=&campaignid=6470262913&mkgroupid=80364172271&rlsatarget=pla-809743844865&abcId=1141166&merchantid=6296724&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIxvvm8Yqf5QIVTdTeCh3RYAtKEAYYAiABEgImx_D_BwE
  5. I figured it out!!! Two word people pizza theorem! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pizza_theorem
  6. Had a chat with @Ausman. He figured it out. Even though this version should have installed and running as admin; I still needed to change the *.exe to run as admin. All issues were resolved in doing that.
  7. @Joe Tauser Well I'll be dammed. I did not go into much detail because I figured nobody would know what the thing is. We have ours doing the basic test as you described, and two others after a deflection plate change. The next iteration for us will be adding a temp probe for the sample and a larger linear actuator. If you need a Lees Disk Tester, I can send you pictures of how I did the heating plates to make life easier for you.
  8. After update to version 9.8.80 I keep getting error 1invalid operation at current state 9 every time I open an existing program, attempt to download it or even click on the about tab to get version. Sometimes it is popping up when I don't do anything. I am getting it on two different computers.
  9. Funny you say that, I bought a recordable voice board off of eBay. We actually debated doing that, but we feared the ISO auditors would not be amused.
  10. Just for fun, this is the control panel for a new force tester we created. If you are a Star Trek fan. I can't be the only nerd on this forum, am I?
  11. The best way to learn is to jump in and try and write as much as you can. If you show the effort the people in this forum jump in and help any way they can. If you’re looking for someone to write the program for you; it’s never going to happen. The people here are great. Give it a good effort on your own and then you’ll have tons of help.
  12. Do you have any static IP’s, or does your ip keep changing?
  13. I find myself saying "whatever, yes the TV screen, now tell me what is says" 😂 Not worth correcting people.
  14. if you are running your wire in cable trays as we usually do here at work, then make sure your tray has a metal separator between sensor wires and motor wires. We have went as far as to pull our sensor wires through flexible metal conduit and lay that in the tray. That step alone solves 90% of our phantom current issues.
  15. So if your getting 200 mm out of 1000 counts then each count is 5mm. So to get 350mm your target is 1750 counts. Just divide the output by 5 to get your mm.
  16. I have had similar issues. It only occurred when I was saving to a mapped drive. If I saved it local it was fine. Yes, I am running as admin but something does not care whether I am admin or not, especially if the file was created on another computer, by another user, with different permissions.
  17. @Ausman and @Flex727 I am ordering one, I write a review in this post after I get it.
  18. 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
  19. @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.
