  1. In visilogic the usb cable that came with the v1210 works, I also use a usb to serial converter for the v1210 port 1 and 2 and that works also. I use a ugreen usb to Ethernet converter on the v1210 and that works also. When I try to use the Unitronics usb cable with unilogic that's when it doesn't work. Same with the ugreen Ethernet converter, it doesn't work for unilogic only for visilogic.
  2. Yes. I've tried to set it up as I do with visilogic. The USB doesn't work because windows thinks it is a serial converter. When I tried to update the driver windows said it has the best driver for it. This is on windows 10 MS surface. When I do it on my windows 7 (Mac with windows on it) same problem with Ethernet. Windows 7 doesn't have the driver for the USB. I need to find it somewhere and install it. I've been using this Mac with windows on it for 7-8 years without problems.
  3. We acquired a machine from one of our plant and it has a USP-070-B10-XR1 with a USC-P-B10 cpu. No inputs or outputs. They've never used it. I am trying to connect to it with no luck. The panel's IP is SM DG I am using a usb to network adapter (no rj45 on my laptop) that works fine on all my vision plcs. If I try to change the panel's IP to as recommended (that's what I use on my v1210s direct connection) it says illegal panel IP settings, please enter valid IP settings. What gives?
  4. Thank you gentlemen. Joe, I've emailed you the program. Thank you for the help!
  5. I have a data table that collects date-time-shift time-machine run time-PO number-lbs loaded into that PO number. We want to input employee name into the table. Planning to put a barcode on the employee's ID. I have a Quantum IS3480 barcode scanner connected to port 2 and I can display the barcode info on the screen. It scans to start of vector MI350 (raw scan 1 of 50) and it set to 30 characters. How do I plug this info into my table?
  6. Tested it on another pc and it works fine there. Hmm.....
  7. Trying to get a data table out of my V1210. When I click run project it calls and populates the log status, but after 3-5 seconds "runtime error 429 ActiveX component can't create object" pops up. When I click ok, it closes dataxport. When I open it again it will set the data table from the plc once then the error pops up again. What am I doing wrong again?
  8. My customer decided to change the work order number from a 4 digit to a 7 digit number. In UniCan send parameters I can only pick MI not ML. How do you guys deal with this? thank you!
  9. Is it an e3xb or e4xb? The E3xb has mostly relay outputs so that will take sometime to drop. Try to use output 0 or 1 those are transistor outputs. How long is your air line? Compressed air is not a good "fluid " to transfer power. Since there is no pressure on the other side of the piston. When you close the solenoid the line between the solenoid and the cylinder's piston still has some pressure. You can pressurize both side of the cylinder and use two solenoids to release the pressure on the desired direction side and close when it reached the desired position I had a project before that
  10. I use UniCan between my Unitronics V1210s, but a new project requires to get signals from an Allen Bradley plc that I have no access to. I am not willing to pay the crazy $$ Allen Bradley wants for just this project. Currently they have a bunch of relays even between the AB plcs. Is there a way to share the 0v on all the power supplies and just use the inputs/outputs to talk to the machines? Thanks in advance.
  11. A pin on the back of the 1210 was bent so the snap on module did not connect properly.
  12. We are duplicating a machine. V1210 with V200-18-E3XB and EX-D16A3-TO16 just like the old one that works perfectly. Running into input problems. Input is on as it should and it does not change in live mode. Like I trip a breaker but it does not change status on plc. If I trigger another input that works. What gives?
  13. Looks like terminal 11 has a wire. It has to be connected to 0VDC for PNP. ...........never mind.
  14. I use a MacBook Air since day one. Installed parallels desktop and running windows 7 on the virtual machine. The windows 7 is set up with no internet connection. Runs without ANY glitches. Check my emails and web on the Mac side, do the plc stuff on the windows side. The battery lasts 7-8 hours, it is way more durable than most pc (hard aluminum shell) weights 2.2lbs. I use it in a very dusty environment. The best setup in my opinion.
  15. Interestingly everything windows related requires a single tap. Only the plc screen in remote operator need a double tap. We can live with it.
  16. Thank you. The 2in1 touchscreen laptop I've got has one annoying issue. It seems like a fairly common problem. If I use a mouse or the touchpad I can use single click to set MBs. In tablet mode it requires a double tap. Can't seem to find a solution for it. It's like they don't wan accidental touch/click so the first is for positioning and the second is the actual click.
  17. Thanks Joe. This was way less painful than I thought. Set up a Samsung 2 in 1 Set remote operator to startup and also set teamviewer so I can access it any time.
  18. I have a project that runs on a V1210. The control cabinet is on the first floor. The machine has a second floor platform 8' high. The operator can't see and touch the screen from the platform. I was wondering if I could use another V1210 on the second floor as a slave screen so they could see/control everything from there also. I have an extra screen that I could use. The operator has a clear view from there to the whole machine so there is no danger doing this. There are no moving parts outside of the machine anyway. Thanks in advance.
  19. I would say it is possible, but the snap on module will be awkward to din-rail mount. I would also be concerned about noise pickup with the flat cable. You could use the expansion modules instead.
  20. My practice is that I run all the subroutines all the time. When the automatic is running it disables the button that could call the screen that has all the manual buttons. When I am on the manual buttons screen and any of the manual controls are on it disables the back button from the manual screen.
  21. I have a couple different size vision series sending data back and fort with UniCan. Works great. I think you can go up to 62 units.
  22. I agree with Flex727. I've learned visilogic by watching the recorded webinars. They are the best for beginners.
  23. So the double image issue with a binary image is kind of solved by using -p- and -n- to refresh HMI when that output is on/off. For now I just use a binary image/switch to to show red off and green on instead of the rotating fan. I know I am a quitter, but I have another fish to fry and I don't want to stop the machine during production time. thank you for all the help!
  24. I will try these later today. There is nothing wrong with functionality. Both machines work fine. Making the second machine logic with mb1000 + helps so I know right away which machine component I am looking at. Same with the 15 programs. Mach 1 is program 131-1131 Mach 2 is 231-2131 depends on how many cycles in the program. Easy for the operators to see what's going on.
