  1. The USB ports on the Unitronics PLC's are for Programming Only. They are not available for communications with other devices. You will have to use the Serial Ports( installed, or added in) or an Ethernet Port ( already installed or optional Addon)
  2. Temperature Graph

    Download the UniStream Examples , unzip it and there are examples of Trending and Data Sampling display in there to work from. Create a Global for the Temperature Variable Link it to a Data Sampler In UniLogic, Under Screen Elements there are the Graphing Elements Unitronics YouTube Presentation link :
  3. Hi Ljuba; See also my response for the JAZZ. In Visilogic, Right click on the display, select fonts and select a font to use. On the left there is Select All and all the characters will show up with Blue background ( the standard fonts will not allow a Select All, so add a new font ) Maybe there is an easier way, but this is what I have tried : On the screen, to display the 'special characters' (0x80 -0xFF -- 128-255) use the Display ASCII String and imbed the special characters in the MI Vector. The Programming display will not show them , but when downloaded, the characters will be displayed. ( note 2 characters per MI, enter as HEX because it is easier to decode the 2 chars in Hex than as an Integer) also the entry is invereted ab (0x6162) is entered as ba(0x6261) in the MI. 0x just means Hex Format This may not be the best solution, and if there are better solutions from others, please contribute. We all learn. Dan
  4. Hi Ljuba; I will assume you have selected the Cyrillic( Russian ) display Language. The Russian Characters you want to display are selected by the Special Characters when setting up the display. These are in the ASCII Table in the 128-255 section IN U90 Ladder, the display will NOT display these special characters, it will simple show the ~ ( tilde) symbol. When the program is Downloaded into the PLC, Then the correct character will be displayed. This is a part of U90 programming we live with. In English , when we need to use the special characters, it is the same. We get the ~ when writing the program and it appears on the display in the PLC after the program is downloaded. Dan
  5. HI; Customer has to Ethernet/IP into an OMRON Safety PLC. We have the EDS file (NX-EIC202), and can make the connection and get the Basic Parameters. The issue is setting up the T2O and O2T Assemblies and Structs for the Global Variables. ( we have done Ethernet/IP Setups for Bar Code Scanners and MURR IO Blocks sucesfully,) We cannot locate the relevent data in the Omron Information. Information, experiences would help. Dan
  6. Hi; I had the same problem last week with that same message. Tried to Uninstall Visilogic 9.8.31 - That came up with the Catastrophic error message. I wanted to try out Visilogic 9.8.64. Blundered my way thru it, made some mistakes on the way, but finally got Visilogic 9.8.64 to install. Has your computer recently done Windows 10 Updates?
  7. Analog Out Example

    Will passing the result value from Linearize to the tag assigned to my AO cause it to output my desired voltage? Yes it will.
  8. Analog Out Example

    Review Specs for Analog Out -- 0-10V is 14 Bit ( 0-16383) 0-5V is half of that Example Data to convert In is 0-100% ( 0.0 to 100.0) Use Linearize Function In is 0 to 1000, out is 0 to 8191
  9. RS485 is Daisy chain, just link them together. Use shielded cable and ground the shield at one end of each link A+ to A+ etc . B- to B- etc. The UniStream is 1 and each device has its own ID Number Baud rate is set to be common to all Connect 1 at a time and get it going before adding in the next one. Be sure to use the terminations 1 at each end,
  10. Got the answer from Unitroncis Up to 16 EX-RC1's can be used with a UniStream PLC+HMI
  11. USB stick (DOK) is not recognized by PLC

    The Minimum USB DOK is 4 GB for Upgrades. Anything less will cause the UniStream to Brick - I have seen one do this - It had to be replaced.
  12. Need help to connect Unistream to ex-rc1

    Hi Oobretenov; YOU MUST use the EX-RC1_IO.vlp example as your base program from the UniStream Examples because there are differences in MI registers being used from the EX-RC1 Examples in Visilogic. Rename the file when you have made configuration changes to suit your project. Did you configure the EX-RC1 _IO for your I/O Modules? Set the DIP Switches on the EX-RC1 Module for the address ( 2 and above) UniStream is at Address 1 by default Then do the Export file, and Import it into UniLogic. The Export file from the EX-RC1 tells UniStream what I/O Modules are connected. Make sure the ID number you set is the same as the DIP Switch setting on the EX-RC1, Leave the General Buffers Unchecked. Then do the the Export from UniLogic of the INPUT and OUTPUT files-- At the top of the properties --, and Import these back into the EX-RC1. The Export files FROM the UniStream back to the EX-RC1 set up the Structs for the Inputs and Outputs properly to synchronize with the I/O Structs in UniLogic. Be sure to put the files in the right Structs in the EX-RC1. Be sure to Setup CANBUS Com Parameters in BOTH the EX-RC1 and the UniStream to be the same Baud rate ! This is a separate setting in UniLogic. Be sure the Terminating Resistors ( 75 ohm) are on BOTH the UniStream Connect AND the EX-RC1 Connector The CANBUS is an isolated Communications system, It needs its own 24 VDC power. It does not draw power from the EX-RC1 Module. On the EX-RC1, The I/O COM Led is Green and Steady when the I/O Modules are running properly. On the EX-RC1, The BUS Com LED is on Steady when the CANBUS is communicating properly, else it flashes. Dant
  13. Hi Felix; If the unit is under warranty - less than 2 years old, contact support. They may cover it under warranty thru your distributor. Else -- buy a new one - maybe your distributor will give you a break.
  14. Hi; The Upper Right corner can take a Non Touch Image. The UniStream uses the Touch function in this corner to be able to get to the built in background functions of the UniStream Controller( like the 'I' Key on the Vision and M91 Series) When you touch this area, a menu will appear - UniApps -- the background system functions for Troubleshooting, Manual Communications setup, Upgrades, etc. Another feature is to take a Screen Shot of the current active user screen.

  15. Visilogic 9.3.1 dont recover

    There is a guide in the pinned area of this forum: How Do I Perform a Full Re-install of VisiLogic? this was written some years ago, so Program Files can now be Program Files(x86) some additional notes: Before doing the above, check and BE SURE ...... Program Files or Program Files(x86) Unitronics Unitronics Visilogic_C -- MOVE any project files you have there - like in the Applications folder, then Delete the entire folder -- DO NOT Have PROJECT Folders here - They may get deleted during Uninstalls !! ( Applications folder is not a safe place to keep project files, store your projects elsewhere -- Visilogic Uninstall can automatically delete this folder) Save project files frequently using revision indexes I the names, so you can go back to a previous revision if necessary. ( In the end , the final project is kept, and the backups can be removed)
