  1. Hi I want to save my sampled data to a csv file on the SD and get the file from the excel via FTP. 1) by using the "Store DTI to File" function i got a file named "MyFile.csv.zip" is there a way to save a common "csv" file and not a zip file? 2) did anybody done that and have an example of importing a csv file via FTP using excel VBA/Macro? (Meanwhile, i managed to do it with the "shell" function, sending ftp commands.) thanks
  2. I am from Mexico, I hope you could understand what I wrote. I Have a PLC+HMI Unistream 7". I plug in the PLC to HMI and connect the HMI to Power supply, afterwards, screen "initializing" appears and remainds on that screen, kept for hours. I have checked my wirings, PLC and the HMI mutiple times and i sure it´s all in right. I can´t acces to UniApps and upgrade the firmware. The connection PC-PLC is succesful, but the PLC needs upgrade firmware. I hope you can help me. Thank you
  3. Hi there, Does anyone have any specifications on the accuracy of the real-time clock in the UniStream PLCs? I am using one (a USP-070-B10) for an application that monitors a very slow-changing system, and so needs to be accurate (hopefully at least to the nearest second) over a number of consecutive days. Sometimes tests stretch into weeks. I recently (about four weeks ago, but I’m not absolutely sure) noticed the clock was way off and synchronised it with my computer clock (which is accurate and auto-updates, etc.). This time I checked and it was between 4 and 5 minutes out, so se
  4. Is it possible to use the UAC-02RS2 IO module for Modbus communication? I would like to communicate on a RS232 port with a Radio.
  5. Hi, I am wondering how to send two or more SDOs, one after the other. In attachment is a image of how I have been trying to do it. It awys just sends the first one in the network. I have tried putting them in series, parallel and in different rungs. I realize that the setup i have is not working out because, while the first one is sending then the "SDO in progress bit" goes high and then it skips the other one. Is there an easy way of doing this? Some thing that would trigger the second one to go of as soon as the first one is done.
  6. I am trying to get CANopen communication going between my Unistream and a Motor controller (Mc) of type MDC1460 from Roboteq. I set the PLC to be node 1 and the Mc to be node 2. I set the Mc to send out a heartbeat every 1s. I then tried to send a NMT and SDO, but nothing happened. Then I tried setting up a Can sniffer to see if I was resaving the heartbeat. I saw in the sniffer that the identifier was 720. Meaning that the node was number 32 in decimal even though I had set it to #2 on the controller. But if I then power cycle the Mc and then it sent 702 after boot up. If I then reboot th
  7. Hello, I've got a sreen filled with Numeric Boxes that make up a table to use for parameters. I noticed that you have "$_title" in the Keyboard Title, and you can set your own title, but is it possible to make this title variable? The columns are shifted from side to side depending on a variable, and I'd like to add a text that says something like "Column %Column_Number%, Rotation Speed" If you're wondering how the columns are set up: 4 On-Screen Columns 17 On-Screen Rows 20 Off-screen Columns 17 Off-screen Rows Thanks, Exouxas

  9. This is more of a hardware question, but it seems like they took the unistream hardware forum down...or I can't find it. Anyways, I've purchased one of the 15.6" Unistream PLC+HMI's and will meet it at the training seminar in Texas. My chief concern is the 15.6" Unistream's operating temperature is only rated down to 32 degrees F where as the 7" and 10.4" models are good down to -4 degrees F. Is this something that will be upgraded in the future? Or is there something about the 15.6" screen that limits its cold temperature rating? Can I pay extra to get cold temp components ins
  10. Anyone know if the Unistream platform would be capable of handling up to 32 analog inputs and 36+ digital outputs? This would be controlled via RS485 through a banner serial radio (link below). The master radio (wired to the unistream) would have 4 or 5 slave radios wired rs485 to 4 or 5 remote i/o devices (red lion i/o link below). http://www.bannerengineering.com/en-US/wireless/surecross_web_multihop http://www.redlion.net/product/ethertrak-2-io-module-32-mixed-inputsoutputs I'm not looking for super fast speeds but it needs to be dependable. There will be no analog output
  11. Hi all, This is an open invitation for you to suggest new ideas and thoughts for Unilogic UDFB's. It is very important for us to keep track of our customers needs. As part of this agenda we want to create and develop useful tools for your benefit. These UDFB's will be attached to the next releases of Unilogic. Please feel free to suggest any idea that seems useful. Thank you
  12. Good Afternoon I think I am missing something but, I am pretty certain I looked everywhere, including the examples, but cannot find what I need! I am trying to connect 4 printers to the PLC through ethernet I want to make the IP address of the printers variable, so I can set the printers up when I get them I am confused as to how to set up the system to do that I thought I had it when I set up 4 clients, but then couldnt work out how to change the IP address Anyone got a clue for me? Thanks Guys (and Gals)
  13. I would like to take a vector/array of values and determine the statistical profile. I would also like to plot the raw values on a Bell Curve. If I were doing this in MS Excel, it would be a piece of cake but I am running into some issues doing it in Unilogic. It seems like the XY Trend can be used to plot the values on a table but I would need to calculate some other values before I could plot the points on a graph. Eventually, I think I could figure out how to do this, if it is possible, but before I try to reinvent the wheel, I thought it would be a good idea to ask other users if they hav
  14. Hello Everybody. I am trying to establish a communication using UDP protocol with a third part PLC (ABB AC800F). It seems that the content of the heater is not the same into the Unistream PLC that into the ABB Can somebody give me the structure of the header used by Unistream PLC’s for UDP communication. Thanks a lot
  15. Hello, I'm currently trying to make a PLC program and HMI interface with UniLogic. The problems I've faced so far: Is it possible to set a default colour for buttons and backgrounds? Say for example you make a new screen, it's set to light blue, when I'd like it to be a different colour. And the default colour for buttons is darker blue when it'd be great to be able to set the default colour yourself. Or if you could set your own colour palette (for example replace the dark blue with dark green, and light blue with light green). The "border thickness" of buttons doesn't work w
  16. Hi again Ok following my last post I sat down and ignored the world for ages, and it sunk in...finally Now managed to connect to my device, well I hope, havent got to the stage of sending out messages to it yet,, one step at a time However my issue is now that I cannot get the PLC to retain the IP addresses I set. must be me, cant imagine where else to look I hope I have attached the file to this post and would be most grateful if someone tells me where I went wrong? Just found out its too big!then it wouldnt let me send that either....dash it all Thanks in advance
  17. Hello, I'm programming challenged and like the easy Rockwell Automation world, just not the price. So Unitronics has nice powerful solutions, but the software seems to lag behind a bit... So... what I'd like to be able to do in the Unistream platform is over-write the "read only" register "current count" from the UID-0808THS module. I have shaft encoders and prefer to work on the positive side of the number line. Negative roll over is a programming headache for me. The application is a mechanical jack screw with 60 PPR A quad B encoder, signal feedback and wiring is easy and works
  18. Apologies if in the wrong forum. I wish to have made cableforms to connect to UID-1600 devices we may supply as optional upgrades to the system we are manufacturing. The cableform will include the 7-way connectors (2-types) identical to those that you provide with this device, but I cannot at present find the exact part references. I believe they are made by Phoenix. Regards Robin Proctor
  19. I have an XKP-300 with the following IO connected. UID1600 qty=3 UID-1600R qty=2 UIA-0402N qty=5 The hardware versions of the cards are different and the boot versions are different. Two of the UID-1600 are HW version 0, Bot version 1.1 but the third one has a boot version of 0.10 Four of the UIA-0402N cards have a HW version of 1 and a boot of version 1.1 the fifth card has a HW version of 0 and a boot version of 1.0 The XKP-300 has the solid green link led on. The first UID-1600 has a flashing red and green status light indicating a configuration problem. which I ca
  20. Hello, I guess I'm spoiled by RS5000 Rockwell Logix software automatic conversion of dissimilar data types... In other words I can very easily compare or do math to a "real" and "integer" values without having to code additional steps to covert the numbers. So now I'm trying Unistream for the first time mainly because of the "STRUCTS" and "UDFB" features are very powerful tools to have that are competitive to Rockwell and Siemens features... Is there an easy way to convert at UINT32 to Real? I see the conversion instruction under the Tools/Math functions... however I do not unde
  21. Hi! I got 25 Vision controllers broadcasting data via UDP_RAW. I'd like to add the new UniStream controllers to my network, but will there be support for UDP_RAW socket configuration in UniStream controllers so it can read broadcasts from other Vision controllers?? Regards Preben Karlsen
