  1. 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)

    Error while extracting

    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

    Error while extracting

    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
  4. 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??
  5. Joe Thanks for that, unfortunately it didnt work
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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??
  9. Sorry. Typo. Put it down to old age V200-18-ET2 was what I had issues with
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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!
  13. Hi Cam SB150 does nothing at all, just sits there looking at me. SB151 and SB153 are both on, so I know I have an ethernet connection and on 2) that is my intention at the moment, will be changed if I can ever connect!
  14. Good afternoon I am trying to send files through ethernet from the SD card. I have downloaded the FTP client example, and have modified it a little bit so it may work in my application. I will soon be modifying it again, so that it automatically connects, but at the moment I am happy to do things manually (well I would but I cant get it working.) What should be happening, is that I scan a barcode, which then creates a CSV file on the SD card (that bit is working!) Then what happens it takes me off to the FTP page. When I press the connect button, it is meant to connect me, but I get nada, nothing! Can someone tell me where I am going wrong? Thanks guys Code is attached to this message. The main routine initializes the card etc then I go to the FTP subroutine to do the rest version 20.vlp
  15. Very strange My customer had the same thing happen yesterday on a V350 with an ethernet snap in installed
