  1. Hi, Anybody had any success with the Advanced Web Server installation on a V1210 with IOATC8//AI8 and 2 x IO-D16A3-TO16 ? Would be great to share your experience. Thanks, Marius
  2. Hi, I tried to use the advanced web server downloaded from Unitronics website, but when I tried to compile it I had the following warnings: What impact will have in the web server functionality? I am using Visilogic 9.8.0 Built 0, on Windows 10, with a V1210 PLC. Thanks, Marius
  3. I had a similar issue with Visilogic and Windows 10. I fix it by disabling the UAC completely (from registry). Try to make 0 the following dword : EnableLUA =0 from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System Restart the system and see if the Visilogic works properly. Good luck, Marius
  4. Thank you very much Dan. I will check the webinar regarding the advanced web server. Cheers, Marius
  5. Hi, Anybody knows an option to control a V1210 PLC from a tablet/smartphone? I was looking at i2 Control 2.2.3 app (developed by iRidium Mobile), but not sure if could be integrated with Visilogic somehow (maybe modbus). Please share your thoughts. Thanks, Marius
  6. Hi, I am trying to get a linearisation between a MI and a timer. Basically I need to have the following sequence: T0=0 -> MI0=0 T0=3.25 -> MI0=1 T0=6.5 -> MI0=2 T0=9.75 -> MI0=3 T0=13 -> MI0=4 I need this kind of sequence for a Variable: List of Images. The entire sequence should be activated by a MB. Any idea on how to do this? I tried with a Drum FB but the output is in MBs. Cheers, Marius
  7. I am using Visilogic 9.7.60 with Windows 10 for couple of weeks already and no issues to be reported. Looks like the guys from Microsoft did not do huge changes in the Windows kernel, or the changes were very well tested. At the same time I am using Visilogic 9.7.60 on a Windows 7 (installed on a MacBook Pro) and works fine. There is any forecast to have Visilogic released for Mac OS X as well ? Cheers, Marius
  8. Hi Dave, Thanks for your reply. Your solution it worked for me. - I connected the sensor to a high speed input, - I configured the high speed input as Frequency measurement 1000 ms - I used a MI to read the pulses from the high speed input - I calculated the wind speed (in km/h) using the following formula: Number of pulses per rotation = 21 Lenght of circle = 0.125664 m Wind Speed = 0.125664*(((MI (PulsesPerSecond) *3600)/21) Thanks all for help. Marius
  9. Hi Cantcliff, Thanks for reply. The way you are saying sounds very simple, but for a newbie (like me) is not I have a Counter (C1) which shows me the number of rotations of the vent. My issue is that I am not sure on how to use the Visilogic ladder in order to take the value of the counter (C1) at every 60 seconds and to put it in a math formula that will calculate the number of rotations / 60 seconds. After that it will be easy to calculate the wind speed using the following formula: Wind Speed = L*RPM L(circle length)=3,1416*D(circle diameter) Please be patient as I am pretty new in the Visilogic ladder programming and a lot of my questions could look naive. Appreciate any reply at my issue. Cheers, Marius
  10. Coming back. I am able to read the number of rotations of the vent. Now, I am struggling to calculate the speed of the vent. I tried to have a look in the examples, webinars and here on forum, but I could not find anything useful. Do you guys, have any idea on how to put the number of rotations in a time frame in order to calculate the rpm (rotations per minute) ? Probably is something simple, but I can not find a way at this moment. Cheers, Marius
  11. Hi Cantcliff / Damian, Thank you for your input. It helped me to find the issue. First one it was the jumper settings in the AIO module. Second one it was a loose connection between sensor and AIO module. Now, I am able to read values in the PLC. Unfortunately, the PLC is reading a value of 1234 when I am reading with a voltmeter from the sensor a value of 2.999V and a value of 648 when I am reading with voltmeter from the sensor a value of 1.566V. The output range of the sensor is between 0-3V. The AI Mode is configured on Fast. Not sure if in the PLC I have to read exactly the values that I am reading with the voltmeter, or the PLC is doing some sort of scaling for the analogue inputs? Appreciate your input. Cheers, Marius Later edit: I watched the webinars regarding the linearization and I found what happened. The PLC is doing the linearization (scaling) between what is reading from sensor and internal bits of the PLC. I am doing a new linearization and I got my values - the real humidity Cheers, Marius
  12. Hi guys, I have an IO-ATC8/AI8IO module, connected to a V1210 PLC. I am trying to read the values from a humidity sensor which has the output 0-3V in an AI0 of the above module. The AI0 is configured as 0-10V Type, No Filter, Normal Mode. I am reading this value in a MI10 operand. The issue is that I am reading in PLC the following values: 5 or 6. Reading with a voltmeter directly from the sensor's output, I am able to read the output voltage values properly (0-3V, and changing the humidity around the sensor, the voltage read with the voltmeter is changing accordingly). Do you have any idea why I am not able to read the proper voltage value in my PLC? Cheers, Marius
  13. Hi, Thanks all for your reply. Appreciate your help. I will try with a proximity sensor 24 V to read in a high speed input, and after that I have to play with the logic and maths. Cheers, Marius
  14. Hi Alex, PLC model: V1210 Sensor: not sure what type is. I bought it from here: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/191473719568?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Vent rotation speed range: 0-100 rpm, and 7 blades. Does not have an electrical power source as is wind powered. Basically with this construction I will be able to calculate the wind speed without buying an anemometer. Cheers, Marius
  15. No worries, I found that I had a MB that was overriding the coil. Fix it an is working as a charm Cheers, Marius
  16. Hi all, I need to measure the rotation speed of a vent. For this I have to do the following: Mount a proximity sensor (5V) which detects when the vent blades are in the detection area and will generate a difference in the voltage read by an AI. The AI is linked to a MI which reads the voltage from the AI I need to store in a counter how many times the MI is changing the value and at every minute to take the value from the counter divide it by 60 and to put the result in a MB. Do you guys have any idea on how to do this? Thanks and appreciate your input. Cheers, Marius
  17. Hi, I am trying to use the Indirect Time function to drive an output as in the attached picture. Not sure why the Direct Coil attached to the Indirect Time function does not become active when the previous function is active. Any ideas ? Cheers, Marius PS. The picture is too big (7kb) and I can not upload it. If I am doing smaller it became unreadable.
  18. You are talking about this link that it was not found ? https://service.gmx.com/registration.html?edition=us〈=en&device=desktop#.1559516-header-signup2-1 On the other side, if you have success in configuring the email, please let me know. I would be very interested to see your approach. Cheers
  19. Hi guys, Thanks for replies. Were very helpful to find the correct code, which is as in the attached image. Cheers, Marius
  20. Hi, I am trying to create an action like: 1. PLC starts and shows the initial screen (Home) 2. Have several buttons on the HOME screen 3. Use one of the buttons to navigate to a specific screen (Screen1) 4. After 1 minute, automatically to move to the HOME screen from Screen1 I have done something similar as in the attached picture, but does not work. What could be wrong? When I am using the buttons on the screens to navigate, works well, but not the automatic return to HOME screen. Thanks for clues. Marius
  21. Hi Cantcliff, You are right, I am not too familiar with RLL as I am used more with the structured text programming than the ladder diagram. My confusion it was that in other PLCs I have seen function blocks already built for OR/AND/XOR gates, including for MBs as compared with Visilogic where the function block is just for MIs (and similar data types). Thanks for your reply, much appreciated your help. Cheers, Marius
  22. Hi Alex, Thanks for reply. I tested both ports (telnet 25 and telnet 587) from my end I received the following message: "220 mail.tpg.com.au ESMTP (mail14) Sendmail ready" I configured the port 587 in the TCP Connect function block as below, but still does not want to connect to the mail server (SB150 is OFF). TCP Connect function block: - Socket : Socket 3 - Remote IP: (my email server IP) - Remote Port: 25 Still not sure why or what is blocking the connection between PLC and the mail server. Any idea would be much appreciated. Cheers, Marius
