  1. Did you plug the cable in Exp Port by mistake? I often make this mistake.
  2. Go to info mode to see what is happening with sockets and try to connect on other Port. I think other Sockets are activated by default on ports 20257, 20258 and 20259 but I'm not sure. Why did you initialize Socket as Client? It should be server if you want to connect through it. Also look at system integers for "Socket Keep Alive"
  3. Is register for position changing, MI12 in your example? If it is then outputs should be firing. Also, steppers can lose position if load is higher. If you have an encoder you could write your own code for positioning and move motor with high speed output instead of PTO functions ("High Speed Outputs (Step Control)" in "Hardware Configuration"). You could try this method for testing, if motor still doesn't move it might be wiring error.

    HMI input staying locked in logic

    I can't see the program, so don't know if transition contacts would solve the problem. Post it if you can, or screenshots of area that troubles you. About setting bit from HMI. Once bit is set it will remain ON until reset command. When you add action for button "Set bit" for trigger "Press", add one more action "Reset bit" for trigger "Release" if you want it to behave like in VisiLogic. Or reset it in ladder. I wish there was an action "ON while hold", so bit would act like in good old VisiLogic.
  5. Hello, Is there an alternative to system registers SI103 - SI106 (TCP keep alive) for V700? I guess SI103-SI106 don't have a function in V700 since there are only 4 of them? Correct me if I'm wrong. Or do I have to make this function myself?

    Compare tag data current vs previous scan

    It is possible. NET 1 Difference = Current Value - Previous Value NET 2 Previous Value = Current Value
  7. There is a "TCP connect" functon if you were referring to making ethernet connection.
  8. That was a great story. You went for Milli-Ohms, but met great resistance.
  9. You'll have to do it with Modbus, I don't know a better way. If you pack registers in sequential order you can read all you need in one command to have more elegant code. Also you can export displays from one project into another and change links to memory locations. If you need to send command from A to B from mirrored PLC, maybe you won't need to alter the code in B but just set bits and register with Modbus, depends of the code. There was a similar topic recently: http://forum.unitronics.com/topic/5425-vision-1210-multi-site-operationio/?tab=comments#comment-22731
  10. It'll be better. That is my troubleshooting face.
  11. Did you, by accident, write values into registers for LCD control, you can see this when you connect to PLC. Also, I had similar blinking was I just placed "set string library" function block to be called unconditionally in every scan. See what happens if you put PLC into stop mode. What is scan time?

    4-20ma to digital input

    I had a similar situation but with outputs. Each output controlled two valves, but one valve was getting negative from supply from NC contact of reley, and other one was getting it from NO contact, so that relay altered which group will be activated. So I got 14 valves from 8 outputs. Crude and patchy solution, but it was some pneumatic cleaner so nothing critical.
  13. You ain't using "Function in Progress" bit before Modbus command. I can't see the rest of the logic, maybe you took it into account. But if you didn't, that may be the reason why it drops messages when you go faster.
  14. Idea was something like this. Maybe SB80 needs to be in a separate net, I'm not sure, can't test it.
  15. You should filter the value a little bit before displaying it, analog input jumps a little bit up and down, it's normal, I guess if you display it immediately lcd will look blurry. Maybe take a couple of readings in short time and display the average, or update register that shows value every 2-3 seconds. I reckon value doesn't change drastically in time since it's level.
