  1. Temperature sensor problems

    There is a filter built-in to the Hardware Configuration for the sensor input. In addition, there are filter Function Block options available under the Function Block (FB) drop down menu when in ladder view.
  2. Temperature sensor problems

    Thermocouple inputs normally have an implied decimal point to give you a reading in tenths of a degree. Either display the value using the implied decimal, or divide by 10 to get an integer value. There are filters available to help stabilize the temperature reading, if needed.
  3. Accumulated timer for more than 99h

    Just have a 24 hour timer which increments a "Days" counter (or integer operand). Or if your display must be in hours, then a 60 minute timer that increments an "Hours" counter (or integer operand).
  4. Project Navigation Tree

    I'm thinking the "Project Navigation Tree" is the left-hand pane with the HW Configuration, Ladder, HMI, Alarms, Trends, String Library, etc.
  5. Your problem looks similar to this one: http://forum.unitronics.com/topic/4803-samba-hmi-text-objects-invisible/
  6. Vision to Samba

    You can find the resolution of the PLCs on the Unitronics website, or just position your cursor in the lower right corner of the VisiLogic HMI programming screen to read it off directly. The problem you're encountering is because Samba has smaller memory operand space. You cannot have more than 512 MBs, 256 MIs, or 32 MLs, DWs, & Timers. If you have fewer than this number, try moving all the operands to addresses less than those numbers.
  7. Vision to Samba

    It's going to depend on the resolution of the two PLCs. If they're both the same, then it's very straightforward, but if the resolution of the Vision PLC is higher, then you're going to have to do some work. Unfortunately, it will require manually placing all the elements if the two PLCs have different resolutions.
  8. I recommend posting your program here, but the only thing I can think of off the top of my head is that the subroutine is causing a Watchdog Timer error.
  9. Visilogic 9.8.64 - Go Get it!

    Interesting! Have you confirmed the STL is correctly encoded for this type of structure?
  10. I have a customer that, due to an accident, has a V1210 with a shattered screen. Does anyone know if this can be repaired (economically)?
  11. Is the V1040 Socket 2 set up as a TCP/IP Slave? Is there a ScanEX function block being executed on every PLC scan? Check the Ethernet-related System Bits SB 141-SB 158 and the System Integers SI 141-SI 148 while online with the PLC to see if there is anything out of order. When you pinged, did you ping to Port 502?
  12. @Ausman's creative genius never ceases to amaze me!
  13. You coded that up and tested quickly! Glad it's working for you.
  14. Sure you can, but timers only have a resolution of 10ms. Just multiply your MI by 100 and use "Store Timer/Counter Preset" for the TD timer you wish to use. Make the timer self-resetting (timer activated by inverted contact of the timer) then have a positive transition of the timer activate a toggle coil of the MB you wish to use for the pulse train. If this isn't clear, I'll post a screen capture of the logic - just let me know. Remember, you must use increments of 10ms. You cannot have a 12ms timer.
