  1. I had the same issue, however mine was my fault... Timers were saved and loaded up on start up and then stored and recalled on start again, if they changed Needless to say instead of loaded the saved number, I saved zero, and all my timers went away!
  2. Thanks guys I guess I will find out if Flex is a genius
  3. Good Morning I have a new project in which my customer wants the system to scan a barcode, connected either via serial or ethernet and then record the barcodes scanned. That bit is no issue, was going to use a data table and store all of the scans done, and use the last entry to give him a total. However he has just thrown a wrench in what I had planned as he wants the details on the screen too. Not only that he wants to show a totalized list of the barcodes scan with a subtotal for each barcode scanned during the day, and I am not sure how to created that on the PLC. And I will not know what those barcodes will be, could be one barcode, could be 10 different (they have 3000 different products, but fortunately not all running at once.) I will be using a V570 for this. Has anyone got any knowledge of doing this type of thing previously, or even if its possible? Thanks
  4. Good Morning I did this (and do this) using a data table and a sensor at both ends After the camera is triggered, store a bit in row 0 of a data table to "say" either " good read-0" or "bad read-1" and then increment the row in the data table, so the next trigger comes into the next row. Then at the reject end I read row 0 and if that bit is true I set the reject, if false I unset the reject (just to be safe) at the end of all that I delete row 0 and decrement the row works like a charm and no encoder needed. also, major benefit is that you change product sizes, it doesnt matter, as you are counting products. Also you can put the reject where you like, who cares, its only numbers. (Hint, if you go this way, make sure that you use plenty of rows when you set up the data table, when I started, I set the table for 30 rows, and needed 40 products before the reject eye.. oops)
  5. well I found a workaround! Had to extract the exe file with winrar, then go into the extracted folder and then double click the welcome.exe file all smoothly from there! All that work to start PLC coding
  6. Sorry about image size, wouldnt let me upload anything larger here is a link https://www.dropbox.com/s/cascwlo9zjgt3z2/oops.jpg?dl=0 It is while trying to install It reads the package content then fails
  7. Good Morning Just tried downloading and get an error message Not enough room on C drive I do however have 0.5 gb available I ran as admin, and turned of my antivirus. Trying to install on Windows 7 64 bit professional. Any thoughts??
  8. Ok. Tried that in the strings library it shows Hebrew ( I think) however on the screen it shows differently. Looks like O’s with accents and umlauts
  9. Good Morning I have a customer who wants to change between Hebrew and English I know how to actually change between language, done it many times with English/Spanish Its how do I get Hebrew to show up in the Strings Library? Thanks in advance
  10. Sorry for the delay You are correct Joe, its not a good idea because it didnt work I had to set one on power up and then unset that and reset the one I wanted at the correct time! Makes sense now I think about it, but who thinks??
  11. Sorry. Typo. Put it down to old age V200-18-ET2 was what I had issues with
  12. Just for everyones info turned out that the ethernet cards V200-18-E5B were bad, all three of them, despite them being brand new Got new cards in worked without a flaw
  13. Good Morning I have a program, in which I need to receive using RS232 from 2 different units (One is a hand held scanner, and one is an Inkjet printer) I have configured both protocols correctly and I see in info mode that the PLC is receiving them, but the strings they are receiving are not being sent to the correct place (I don’t see where they go) In the main program I set this My thought was that when I set MB0 the plc would get the code from the barcode scanner and when I set MB121 the “from printer” code would be received As you can see that when I get the correct result I would then go to the assembly code scan I also set the Barcode scanner protocol and reset the printer protocol However when I run the program, it doesn’t “see the scans”, however when I am in info mode I see them Thoughts please, what am I doing wrong Link to vlp program Thanks In advance
  14. Hi Cam Turns out that even the basic program, just initializing the card and then opening the sockets, the PLC isnt doing anything However when I run the same program in a Samba it works weird PLC is at Unitronics now being dissected I guess,, I have 2 doing the same thing!
