  1. Hello everyone, I'm still learning with this hardware. I am working on a project for which I need to totalize a flow that comes from an analog signal. I wonder if there is a function block that does it, or how to do it. Thank you!
  2. Hello, Im getting error when I try to run VisiLogic software . Google tell's its connected somehow with VBA. But I cant fix this error. Any ideas?

  4. Hello all, I just recently began my job programming PLCs for a custom welding manufacturer, so there will be many different types of programs to brainstorm and create. I am VERY new to programming itself let alone Visilogic and PLCs in general, no past experience aside from a few linux classes before coming into this job(unrelated just my only programming experience prior). That being said, I'm learning ladder logic and Visilogic from the ground up and was hoping a few of you gurus could point me in the right direction to make my learning process a bit smoother than it'd be with just google and I. To familiarize myself and experiment with the program I am using a Unitronics v350-35-ta24(B) with the 4.3 O/S. Attached to my PLC are a few digital inputs and outputs as well as an analog input and output. I have watched all the webinars on the website 5 times through, even the ones I don't understand. It seems there is a void in tutorials between the basic introductory buttons/timers videos and the complicated vectors, strings, etc. I have somebody nearby to tell me how to do what I want, but the resources to teach myself and learn in my own way seem to be lacking somewhat unless I am missing the right videos somewhere on the internet, though I have searched far and wide, to infinity and beyond, etc. At this point I can do the basics as far as buttons, jumps, timers are concerned, my only confusion with contacts at this point is how to incorporate inverted contacts/coils smoothly which I feel will come as I design my programs and find my pace. My purpose of this post was to collect as much research material as possible that I may not know of yet, any relevant videos or forums/posts/documents about ladder logic, programming, or specific Visilogic that would help me better understand the language I am attempting to teach myself. The software is very easy to understand and work with, as well as the videos/forums that I have found so far; and you all do a great job at responding to questions on here. If anything comes to mind that might help a toddler in the Visilogic world mature a little bit it would be greatly appreciated. At this point I am really trying to master using contacts in sequence to perform AND statements, using them "stacked"(for lack of better term) as OR statements, and trying to master my motor and PID instincts. I know this is a vague request and nothing exactly specific, but any examples of simple old code you may have from when you were learning or from simple programs you had to do, websites you refer to in order to refresh your memory or thought process, or ANYTHING informational about basic Visilogic and/or programming would be greatly appreciated. Hope you all have a great weekend, Derek Godown
  5. Hello together, i try to measure the Speed of Rotation (between 1000 1/min and 8000 1/min) with a Samba SM43-J-TA22 and an capacitiv sensor with one srew on the Motor shaft. When i use the High Speed Input in the Hardware Configuration (Frequency Measurment 1000msec) i have an very bad Resolution (Value 16 * 60 = 960 and next Value 17 *60 =1020). I've tried to use the "Freq<- HSC" building block, but it doens't work with my values. For example im not sure what i have to chose for the Channel A, because I can chose HSC 0, HSC1 and HSC2 there but I only have two HS channels on my Samba Controller. Is this the right way to measure the Speed of Roation more exactly? If yes can you give me an example how i have to config the block, and if i have to set up the High Speed Input in the Hardware Config? Thank you very much. Kind regards Stefan
  6. Hello everyone, I am very new in programming with Visilogic. Everything is fine despite the fact that the coulor of the pixels change if I touch the display. These marks will be deleted if i switch between the screens. I dont know why this happens because it is really annoying but i couldn't found anything on the internet to stop this. I hope someone can help me! Best regards Fabian
  7. Good day. Somebody tell me please how to change number of digits in fractional part in the numeric variable in case if this variable shows floating point number? (It is set to 9 by default) I use the VisiLogic OPLC IDE version 9.8.31 Build 0 I tried to change number of digits on 2 but when I opened my variable again I saw that number of digits was set to 9 again Thanks in advance
  8. I have an application where the unit needs to go through a calibration cycle every so often. This interval will be specified as a number of days between calibrations and a time of day for it to take place. There is also a screen where the calibration can be triggered manually (or through modbus). I am using a V430 PLC programmed through Visilogic. The timers only go to 100 hours, if the task is scheduled for every 15 or 20 or 30 days, what signal can I use to trigger a count down timer once a day? I can set up a decrementing counter for the number of days and trigger the calibration cycle and reset the "# of days counter." But how do I trigger it?
  9. Hello, I have a problem with messuring temperatures. The setup goes as follows - V700 - EX-A2X - IO-PT4K-PT1000 sensor. IO-PT4K type is PT100/1000(alpha=0.392) mode is Celsius . I get values like 220, 200 that seems to be like temperature 22 multiplied by 10. Why are these values so high or it is just coinsidense. Also the keep changing like from 170 to 220 in seconds so I can't build control based on temperature messuring. Any thoughts?
  10. In the Version Change document for 9.8.64 they state: Project Navigation Tree Simple, static HMI elements such as lines and circles now appear on the Project Navigation Tree under Static. I would like to check this out, but I cannot find any information about what or where the "Project Navigation Tree" is, or can I find anything labeled Static. Can someone explain how to get there, or attach a screen shot of what I should be looking for, please?
  11. Our customer has asked if we know any suitable candidates for supporting his Unitronic's installations and future projects. Mainly Vision range on a wide variety of applications. Ideally they would have experience also on inverter drives, Modbus and even better experience with c++. If you have PLC experience but not Unitronics we are happy to train you. Must be UK based and have suitable work permits etc. No agency's please. Please contact us via our website and we will put you in touch with our customer.
  12. Hello Everyone, I seemed to have "bricked" Visilogic on my PC. Was connected/online with a PLC, I shut the lid to my laptop, when I opened the lid my computer was off... not sure why or how it completely shut down but it was definitely off. Restarted the PC, tried to restart Visilogic and I get the error message below. Note the file referenced (Current_OPLC.udb) is not present in the specified directory. I uninstalled / reinstalled Visilogic, tried opening other projects, even tried just opening Visilogic with no project loaded. I can get it to open by right clicking and running the .exe as administrator, but it still crashes when I try to open any application. Additional Details: Windows Pro 10 64 Bit, Visilogic 9.8.31, Vision 130-33-T38 PLC. Also sent an email to support but as it was late in the day I haven't heard back as of this time. Any help getting this resolved would be appreciated. -Chris
  13. i have just received my new vision 1040 and i'm tryibg to make a connection with my pc via usb cable, i followed the webinar and all the instructions i think i don't know if i made a mistake but i got a message saying " invalid procedure call or argument" when i press the button "install usb driver" please help me thank you.
  14. Hi there, I have V700 with V200-18-E46B snap, I`m trying to figure out the connection to the analog input from 4-20ma sensor, The data of the v200 state that the maximum V in the analog input is 15, the sensor receives its V from the controller 24v, The output voltage from the sensor is 23. Volts .. Therefor I would assume there will be problem if I connect it to the input of the analog in (based on the maximum V in of the snap in 15v) Am i missing something here? do I need to provide lower voltage to the sensor? add something after the sensor to lower the volts? Help please. Thank you
  15. Hello: I am using Visilogic to program an application for a V1210 HMI unit. My application requires 3 level of users: Operator Supervisor Programmer Each kind of user should have a password. Of course, all of those passwords should be different. Can someone suggest a way to do this? Thank you in advance
  16. Hi, trying to upload a project from a Vision 120 PLC, the upload option has been disabled after entering wrong passwords several times. Is there any way to re-enable the upload option?
  17. Question to the VisiLogic dev team: Is it possible to add option "Check all" and "Uncheck all" for import Data Tables from .upd file in the future version of VisiLogic?
  18. Does anybody know if Vision controllers (ie V130) support Modbus TCP or do they support the Modbus RTU over TCP implementation. The difference is that the first follows the original Modbus TCP frames (ie no CRC) while the latter encapsulates the serial RTU framing sent over TCP media. Which one is supported by Vision and the other Unitronics controllers?
  19. In a future release of Visilogic, it would be great if you could have the option to make the properties window permanently visible, perhaps on the right side. I use Visilogic alot, and this would save so much time from right clicking on an object (objects that bring up a variable window instead of properties window when double-clicking) and clicking properties. Not a big deal with small projects, but tedious for big projects with 100+ objects across multiple screens. If there's already a way to do this, someone let me know. Thanks.
  20. Hello Everebody I debuted programming on a SM70 and i encounter a problem in understanding of Search Function in DataBase. Would you an example to search a valu on database for a return to the screen. Thank you in advance Ned.....
  21. hi there I was debugging a program on a V700 over a direct connected Ethernet link to the PLC and laptop while debugging eventually visilogic would randomly close with the attached error screen I could easily restart visilogic and reconnect the link to continue debugging so more of an inconvenience than anything any help would be appreciated
  22. Hi: Brand new V350-J-TR6, straight out of the box, hotted up, a fresh install (yesterday) of Visilogic 9.8.31 on Windows 7 Pro. I went to the Start-up Display, added a piece of text and then tried to add a Numeric object and Visilogic crashed. The "UnHmPge2" message is "Run-time error '372': Failed to load control 'ActiveBar3 from ActBar3.ocx. Your version of 'Actbar3.ocx may be outdated. Make sure you are using the version of the control that was provided with your application". Searching shows that this was reported as a problem way back in 2008 on Linux. I DO have Unilogic installed as well. Please don't tell me that THAT might be a problem. If anyone has any ideas, I'd appreciate it. I'm literally dead in the water 15 minutes into a brand new project. Image attached of the error message. Thanks, Fred Mason Roberts Creek, BC Canada
  23. Hello mates! I have got a problem with CANopen connection between my Unitronics V560 and gateway Turck BL20-E-GW-CO. As u see on the picture I attached after connecting my PLC and Turck gateway Err red diode is turned on. In this case, user manual says: "Faulty or interrupted communication between BL20-CANopen gateway and other CANopen. Possible causes: – CAN-BusOff – Heartbeat error – Guarding error – Transmit timeout" "– Check that the fieldbus ends with a termination resistor, if the BL20-CANopen gateway is the last node in the bus topology. – Check the seating of the CANopen bus connector (or the joints in the case of direct wiring). All connections must be correct and properly seated. – Check the CANopen cable for possible damage, and for correct connections. – Check that the correct bit rate has been set. – Check that the NMT-master is still functioning properly." - I have turned on termination resistor (my gateway is first and the last one at once). I even added extra one to PLC between H and L signal. - My connectors seats well - Cables do not have any issues - Bit rate which I set in "COM PORT INIT" block is the same as in gateway - My master PLC (V560) works What can be issue of my problem? How could I cope with that? Thanks for your time. Cheers!
  24. Hello! I use VisiLogic v.9.8.9 for programming PLC V570. I want protection my project for impossibility from upload, but I can't. In download properties menu this parametr isn't active (attach file - screenshot_1). How I can do it? Thanks!
  25. Hi, I have a question. I'm programming a V1040 with Visilogic, but when I want to configure the hardware, I can not see the IO-IA8 module and expanssion EX-A2X adapter. What I have to do to configure the hardware with this modules? Have a nice day.
