  1. heh Aus, the odds at 1 in 8640 definitely mean gremlins - no other explanation, cobber! I'm only just going through the forum now after a long vacation - took advantage of the fall holiday cycle to do some traveling.
  2. Feet inches pounds ounces stones leagues...cubits!!!! and much much more.... Interesting articles - I liked the map in the second one, very handy for locating who uses what where.
  3. Your wish will be granted - i hope it will make it into the next VisiLogic Version
  4. Hi--sorry I missed this when you posted! I have submitted your feature request; I'll let you know the decision (it may take a while to receive)
  5. I love this thread--very good example of what the forum is all about Chris, if you haven't come across it, you may want to check out the Help topic Program Sequencing. Also, right-clicking the left-hand rail will open a menu that offers a view option called 'power flow'. This shows little arrows in the direction of flow--which is a handy thing as well/ 4236A6B4-B5AC-493C-9E71-D458B9A09263.SNAG
  6. VFD, inverter, AC drive - engineers call these adjustable speed drives by different names, but all use them to control motor speed and torque. Now, you can obtain your VFDs from the same supplier as your PLC + HMI controllers. Unitronics VFDs can be used as a stand-alone product, or as part of a complete All-in-One package with our PLC+HMI controllers: UniStream®, Vision™ and Samba™. This simplifies workflow by enabling you to: Obtain your VFDs, PLC + HMI controllers and related components, as well as technical support, from a single supplier. Operate your VFD directly from the controller’s HMI panel Use the same programming software as the PLC control and HMI application, to: Set-up and configure multiple VFDs in a snap Monitor and debug your VFD Remotely Access your VFD For more information, check out the VFD page in our website: https://unitronicsplc.com/vfd-variable-frequency-drive/
  7. @MohammedI'm late to this party, and I understand that all is well I still wanted to address this: In the VisiLogic Help, under the topic Positive Transition Contact ( Rise ), there is a sub-topic Decreasing the Number of Transitional Contacts--you may want to check it out.
  8. Hey Joe--is this with a particular Vision/Samba, or across the board?
  9. Hi Dave!! That was great to read--very happy that you have found our HMI + PLC controllers suit your needs so well! Would you like to collaborate on an application story? We publish them here, on our site. We also sometimes use these stories, or quote them (with proper attribution, of course!) Let me know if you are interested
  10. At this point in time...no reversal is going to happen...? A little history: when I joined this joint - over 20 years ago - any existing documentation had been created by the R&D staff, and they used Siemens as the model for terminology. They brought me in because they were about to create the M90, and, for the first time, Windows-based software--they wanted someone who could build a Help file. They also wanted a native English speaker--there were non in the company--to do this. I was completely new to this world; I acquired the terminology of automation, so to speak, by reading a few Siemens manuals. So any glitches in terminology...are my responsibility
  11. Joe Tauser - if you've spent 5 minutes on this forum, you know Joe as a forum moderator, expert in all things Unitronics. If you have ever asked for help, you have probably benefited from his broad knowledge of control engineering. Joe offered some good, cautionary advice for those implementing IoT in their applications that appears in the May edition of Control Engineering, European edition, in an article on machine control technology developments, spotlight on IIOT, Click here to see the May issue, the article is on page 33 - I've captured that page below: Legacy Applications Wanted!!!! **Call for 'Legacy' PLC application stories!**Our first generation PLC's are controlling applications decades (!) after their release.Do you use Unitronics' first generation PLCs? Let us know!
  12. Hi Paul, The platform of those lines does not allow it. While we continue to support--as well as release new features--for these lines, these advanced features are supported by UniStream and the products that will follow it.
  13. I'd never heard that term before!!! A quick Google showed that "Support Portal" is more frequently used by a factor of 10--but I have no doubt that "Supportal" will catch up!
  14. How to get Help with Unitronics Products DO Check the Help file. Press F1 to open the Help. Use the Table of Contents, Index, and Search function to find information. Look at the Example programs: UniLogic: Download examples via the Help tab. VisiLogic: Examples are installed with your program. View our how-to videos for: UniLogic | VisiLogic | U90 Ladder. Search the forum. Post in the forum—if you haven't found your answer. Be nice. Did someone respond? Thank them. Ask you a question? Answer. Please—respect the community. Most of the people here are volunteers! When you DO post, please: Include Software Version and Controller Model. Describe your problem - clearly. Your project - attach it to your post, via the Attach icon. This enables people to open, for example, the TCP/IP CARD INIT block to check your settings. If you cannot post it, make sure your captures show enough information. Pictures of function blocks without the corresponding dialog boxes are usually worthless. DON'T Don't be afraid to try different ways to solve your problem before posting. Faulty code will not break your PLC. Experiment! You will learn - and probably have fun. Don't expect ready-made code to solve your problem. Every situation is different. You will have to work - but we will try to help you. PLEASE Answer questions - ALL the questions. There is a reason for every question asked. Thank the people who help you. Report on how you resolved your problems—this helps other people in the community. Contacting Unitronics Support You can: Use the Support Portal to open a support ticket http://support.unitronics.com/index.php Write to our Support team at support@unitronics.com We all make mistakes. Good luck, and happy programming!
  15. Hey-- @viscoelastic! Ask and ye shall be given! It can be and will be done. No timeline, but I imagine it will be in the next version.
  16. Ok, just snorted my coffee! Yeah, being smacked in the face by a wet tail during a milking gets me cursing in four languages. Been many years since I milked a cow, though To return to topic--I will ask. I doubt it is possible, but I will report back.
  17. I'm partial to the Lobe Ranger myself...
  18. THIS I agree with wholeheartedly. This is probably why I never let them go...
  19. Historic reasons. I can't remember exactly why, because...CRS
