  1. On upgrading my Unilogic program with compiler version 1.29.111, it now reports this error: 'The TCP Remote slave limit of 64 operations has be (sic) reached. (136)' The program previously compiled successfully with compiler version 1.29.26 and .34. I have 11 ModBus Remote Slaves on separate IP addresses, with 10 of which I request a single 64-register transfer, and the eleventh two 32-bit register transfers. If I remove all the Slaves and associated code, then the program compiles. If I then reinstate them it now compiles successfully! I have several versions of my program in development, chasing different operational problems. Do I have to repeat this procedure for each of them in order to use this latest compiler? Regards Robin Proctor
  2. Hi All, I was trying to connect Moxa ioLogik E1214 to Unistream USP-070-B10 over EtherNet IP. The Connection Status shows error code "0117", which explained as "Invalid Produced or Consumed Application Path". I created this node using "Add Node From EDS" file. I used the EDS file provided by the Manufacturer. I can see very short period of connection because the device name shows up correctly on the field, then disappears. Can anyone help me on this issue?
  3. Hi, I've just upgraded to UniLogic 1.29.111, and I've noticed I can't change the size or position of HMI elements with the mouse or properties editor. I can move them with the cursor keys, but that's all. Also, the "Arrange HMI elements" buttons stay grayed out when multiple HMI elements are selected. Is this an issue with this version of UniLogic? Anything else it could be? It's a fairly large, complicated project that's just been updated from 1.18.60. Sandy
  4. I wanted to provide support personal way to access alarm history. So when user calls at 2 AM and says "machine stopped working" they can see what has happened and give advice for user, what to do. Sadly in current state you cant provide any indication of alarms on Web page. I know they can see errors on HMI screen. But If I provide support personal VNC access they are able to start engines over cell phones (in their bed) and I think it may be dangerous. Providing read-only VNC access is also problematic, because PLC is behind locked door (windowed) and for interactions they have to drive on the job site. I can provide state of the buttons or sensors on web page but there are lifting device and it will stop if it is over loaded (speed drops). Without alarms you cant easily see reason why it stopped. Maybe I can read alarms from SD card and show them on Web Page ? Maybe I can add some JS code and create some custom Web UI elements? UniLogic 1.29.111
  5. Hi, I have configured numeric entry field in the HMI and I am entering time in minutes. When I change this value by entering it from HMI, it works. But when I pass the value to this tag from the logic, updated value is not displayed on the HMI. Here is the screenshot of the logic created to pass the default value to the time setpoint. Please help.
  6. I have some simple C functions, but suddenly I noticed all code is gone and functions are displayed as empty. I was worried, did I accidentally delete some of it, but luckily I have older versions so I opened these and copied content into notepad. But when I reopened newer file (file where c functions were empty) all content was back. I even saved newer file before opening older file. So conclusion - C functions window displayed functions as empty, even when content actually did exists there.
  7. Currently it is too hard if you have to change multiple object colors on HMI. I had 20+ Numeric Box and Fixed Text objects on screen and customer says they want to change entire color scheme similar for their brand colors. I didn't find any easy way to automate things so it is 20 clicks and button presses for each element color and I didn't had only one page. Maybe Copy/Paste drop down for color elements on the Properties Window ??
  8. Hi ! I work in unistream 1.26 For the next step, I need a make a login connection in web server, I don't know if it's possible ? In HMi, I found a management panel " Web Server password". Do I can use this for make a log in page ? Or I can use other method ? Thank you so much !
  9. Hello, I have Unistream 7 and I have problem with configuration of high-speed output of module UIS-WCB2. The high speed output 0O should be able to be configured up to 250 kHz using PWM mode. According to help, I have configured in properties windows HS Block 1 to PWM - see screenshot. Then I have configured the struct B1 according to the screenshot, but it still does not work. The classical "slow" output using function PWM worked, however I can not get to work the high-speed 100 Khz+ output mode. Thank you very much for any tips. Best regards, Martin Sirovy.
  10. Hello, I am just getting started on unilogic. I am having trouble communicating my USC-B5-B1 PLC with USL-070-B05 HMI. Can anyone guide me through the communication process ??
  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. Hello, I'm using US5-B10-B1 controller and want to create a test report. For that ideally I'd like to have table where the column number isn't constant. I attached and example of how I imagined the table. I wanted to know if its even possible to create 3 data tables: first data table for the top part of the report, second data table for the middle and third for the bottom part and then stack them one on top of the other? I tried creating some data tables, exporting them into csv and then appending them, but it says its required that the dimensions of the tables match up. I would really appreciate any alternative ideas.
  13. I use Com port 2 to Modbus, Com port 1 i want to use to a modem. But as son as i change Tx/Rx to Modem the Modbus communication at Com 2 stop, when change back to Tx/Rx and repower, Modbus work again. Should this work?
  14. I created an EtherNet/IP adapter, 8 bytes in, 8 bytes out. In the ControlLogix PLC I created a Generic Ethernet Adapter node, 2 DINT in, 2 DINT out, and got an error '16#012a Connection Request Error: Invalid output application path' at the PLC. Then I changed PLC to Generic Ethernet Adapter node, 8 SINT in, 8 SINT out. Now I get '16#0114 Electronic Keying Mismatch: Electronic keying product code and/or vendor ID mismatch'. What would be your advice to establish a working EtherNet/IP connection between PLC and Unistream?
  15. I am working on a Unistream Project that will use an EX-RC1 module with an IO-AI4AO2. Does anybody happen to have a Visilogic example File for this configuration?
  16. Hi. I got this error when i was trying to save the project. This happends every time i tried to save, even with new projects. Im using UniLogic 1.18.60.0 I know its old, but i there is to many problems with CUP error and HMI overload with the newest update. Anyone that know why this happends? Thanks in advance.

  18. Is possible to get a DHCP connection through Unilogic Software?
  19. I attempted to install latest version of Unilogic on Windows 8.1 x64 OS. When I launch I get invalid class message, then nothing. Any suggestions?
  20. Hi, I am beginner in Unilogic. I learn this software and looking for step by step programming tutorials based on the concrete examples. I watched intro and other tutorials. At this stage some example tutorials of "this is how you do it for such scenario" would be very useful. I checked Unitronics website and web but did not find something similar. Does anyone have such tutorials or links to them, please. Thank you. Regards
  21. Does any one know what is the native Byte order of Unilogic when a Modbus Double Register is mapped from a Remote Slave;
  22. Intro A UniLogic application writer need to keep on some ground rules in order to get the best performance from his UniStream. That’s because a GIF size in is calculated in the next manner: "Size in memory" = Width * Height * Frames * Bit depth Meaning that using a GIF without considering it dimensions can affected badly on the UniStream. ?How do I manage my GIFs Let's move on any of the equation elements and see how we can reduce them. Our start point is the "Damper.GIF" which dimensions are: - By right clicking on the GIF and choosing "Properties" -> "Details" Width – 1000 Height – 1000 Bit depth – 8 :By entering this link (ezgif.com) and choosing the GIF with "Choose file" and then "Upload". In the page that opened you can use - To resize the GIF Width & Height. The values that you want to resize to them are the size of the widget linked to the GIF in UniLogic.Enter the values and press "Resize it!". When it's done in the frame below you can press on "Save" to download it to your PC :(Frames – You can use the same website to remove some unneeded frames (less animated GIFs). In the next tab (1 Pressing on "skip" (2 or 3) can remove the frame (first or fifth). After any change you can use "Animate it!" and see your editing result :If we edit the example GIF to, let's say 100x100 with 5 frames (the application user can hardly tell) we save Old 1000 * 1000 * 7 * 8 = 56,000,000 bits New 100 * 100 * 5 * 8 = 400,000 bits .That's 55,600,000 bits or 6.95M bytes of memory ?To what values do I need to aim A user needs to aim as lower as possible because the memory divides between his other application features and it depends on the number of images/GIFs on the current screen. As a rule always aim to a GIF that is size is no higher than 50k
  23. I recently came a cross with a UniLogic application that use large structs. For example, one struct was composed of 80 members, and most of the members type was INT16, like so: In memory the struct look like this: struct MyStruct //struct size is 80 * 4 = 320 bytes { INT32 ID; //size 4 INT16 Val_1; //size 2 CHAR[2] padding1; //size 2 INT16 Val_2; //size 2 CHAR[2] padding2; //size 2 //…. INT16 Val_79; //size 2 CHAR[2] padding79; //size 2 } notice the padding that added to the struct. That's common in software in order to align the memory so work will perform more effectively. This padding cause every 2 bytes in an INT16 type an extra "weight" of 2 bytes – so every INT16 is 4 bytes. One can think that the struct size is 4 + 2 * 79 = 162 bytes, when in fact it 320 bytes, almost two times bigger (!). Now, let's try the next approach: In memory: struct MyStruct_NEW //struct size is 4 + 2 * 79 = 162 bytes { INT32 ID; //size 4 INT16[79] Val_Arr; //size 158 } And we got a struct size 162 bytes, as intended. Just imagine we use struct "MyStruct" in a 3,000 line Data Table, we will waste almost 0.5M bytes (3,000 * 158), while "MyStruct_NEW" waste nothing. For conclusion, when creating structs in UniLogic consider the padding factor in order to reduce your PLC memory consumption.
  24. Hello, I'm trying to comand an output with a button, but when I'm on online mode, the direct contact I use in the transition refer to the output don't work. I don't understand because it's a simple action. Bits are high but transitions don't go forward. Furthermore, there are some coils which stay activated without reasons. Thanks for your help
