  1. 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 55,60,000 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
  2. Hi All - I want to reuse an old Vision project as a template for the HMI 's mainly and to reuse some of the ladder logic for a new Samba project. I see I can export and import ladders but how do I reuse HMI's? Thanks for any guidance.
  3. I've tried to find a way to load a HMI screen via ladder within UniStream (which I found to be a very useful function within VisiLogic), but so far without success. Is there a way to get things done like: if a condition turns on screen n° xxx will be opened? Thanks for your feedback. Olaf
  4. Is there a way to group HMI elements together for copying, moving, keeping respective locations, etc.? Most programs have "Group" and "Ungroup" buttons...I haven't been able to find this feature in UniLogic.
  5. We are truly proud to announce that Frost & Sullivan, a major market research and analysis firm, has honored Unitronic's with the Best Practices Awards for 2016. The prestigious award for Global Advanced PLC Product Line Strategy Leadership was given after Frost & Sullivan conducted an in-depth review of Unitronics products, specifically our 3 major product series--Samba, Vision, and UniStream--in relation to the dynamic, competitive market that challenges PLC manufacturers. Read all about it here: https://unitronicsplc.com/press-release/?prid=12146
  6. I use trends and they fill up the SD card on the UniStream. I tried to use the file browser object to manage the SD card. Specifically I'm trying to delete the 'samples' folder created by the trends. When I try using the file browser and UniStream SD Delete (or the one in UniApps) after selecting the 'samples' folder I get an error Any ideas on how to do this correctly? Is something writing to the disk or not properly stopped? Right now I have to pull the SD card and delete it on my laptop then put it back into the PLC. Not very elegant and difficult to do remotely... Thanks!
  7. Dear Community, Is it possible to have a bit trigger a message box? I have some ladder logic that determines if high and low user definable setpoints are equal to each other or inverse to each other. undesirable setpoint conditions make bit named SP> and SP= go true. Right now I have and indexed HMI text element that shows: legal entries, sp = illegal, sp> illegal, both illegal. I don't really want to trigger an alarm (though i could). The message box would be a nice way to signal operator of an illegal entry. I can't use legal entry ranges on numeric elements because legality is conditional to other setpoints. Thanks -dB
  8. Link combo box to data table

    Is it possible to fill the list of an HMI Combo Box with the string data which is stored in column of a data table? Thanks, Marco
  9. List of Text Variable

    Hello, I'm programming a table and I would like to have like a drop down menu containing food which, when the type is selected like " bananas" it is wrote in the table. It's like a predefined menu containing predefined types . I'm using UniLogic so is it possible ? ( an other question : is it possible to store a table with a name and then "increment" its name when storing the following table ( Data_Table_01 then Data_Table_02 ... ) Thanks
  10. Hello world! I have a problem with HMI display element "Binary text"; it has often (not always!) pink border. This flaw occurs when the element has style "3D pressed", color ON = Green, Color OFF = Gray and Toggle is enabled. It is probably some mistake of display itself because using Remote Operator that display looks normally. I saw this fenomenon on various Enhanced OPLC displays (V1040 / V1210). Do somebody has the same experience? Is there any possibility to get rid of this? Thank you, Michal.
  11. Hi - I was wondering if there was a tool to auto resize the HMI's in a VLP when you change models from a V350 to a V700. I can select all elements right click and center in display vertically and horizontally but this won't auto-resize to fit the screen. Thanks.
  12. Screen with password

    Hi all, I 'm trying to make a screen with password access in UniStream. How can it be achieved?
  13. Modbus in Vision V700

    Hi, I'm having hard time displaying data on V700 PLC. After MODBUS config and reading holding registers HMI still shows 0. Do I need to write data to data table and only then display on HMI? Data has to be read from MIO 12-V I/O module. Network ID matches, start of vector links to hmi variable. What could be done or I did wrong? Thanks. I'm attaching vlp file here
  14. MODBUS data on HMI

    Hi, I'm having hard time displaying data that I get through MODBUS. Need to read from multiple slaves, but after download display still shows 0. Maybe do I need to write data to data table and then display on HMI? Or I can just display data vector? I'm really confused, thanks in advance for your help. P.S. Program attached below.

  15. If you haven't checked out the Unitronics Youtube for awhile, you may want to check out our UniLogic Tech Tidbits Playlist. The most recent Tidbit shows you how to create your own, reusable HMI Custom Controls. After you create a control, you can drag and drop it from the Solution Explorer, export/import it between projects as .uluce files, or add it to the Library. You can also define tags that are local to a specific Custom Control, these tags will be exported/imported along with the control. It's all in the link below!
  16. Displaying data in HMI

    Hello, I'm having problem with vision V700 PLC. Reading data from multiple slaves kinda understable but I need to display data from data table in HMI. How can I do that? Reading different material didn't help, maybe I missed something. Thank you in advance.
  17. Dear Community, How do I see two (or three) trend curves at the same time as seen in Visilogic? Thanks All! Sincerely, Hotwires
  18. Hi! Im currently working on a project with a Vision 130 OPLC. In my application, the people interacting with the HMI, have to press the keys many times, specifically the arrow keys and the ENTER key. I'm worried about the lifespan of the keypad and i dont want it to damage. As a solution for this, I've tought of having external buttons connected to the INPUT port of the PLC, and using them (in software) to act as the keys in the HMI keyboard (see attached image). However, I'm using a List of Text as Keypad Variable Entry, and whenever i go into keypad variable entry mode (blinking), the external buttons dont work as the keys anymore. I want to know if i'm doing anything wrong or if there is a better way to override the keypad keys. Thanks In Advance Juan
  19. HMI link to a bit

    Dear Community, How does one link an HMI element to a bit in a manner where the bit is only true for the duration that the HMI element is held to touch? In visilogic I used the HMI link to bit and then linked that bit to a TON timer. To reset an hour meter numeric element the operator would press and hold the HMI element for 5 seconds, the timer would go true, a PTC contact would trigger a RESET NUMERIC coil; then Happy, happy, happy. Now not so much. Is this achievable in UniL? Actions seem to be latch oriented. Thanks All. Sincerely, Hotwires
  20. Dear Community: How does one make a bit load an HMI screen? UPDATE: Found it, ACTIONS will link a bit to a LOAD HMI.
  21. Hey, I just faced this problem when adding new screen. No matter what I do in between Unilogic crashes every time I try to add a screen in my current project. I tried to open another significantly smaller project and with that i was able to add a screen. Has anyone else had this problem? I hope that there is no maximum number for the screen in project. Problem details says the following,Original solution path: C:\UniLogic\0004_test.ulpr:
  22. Hi! I would like to know if in the future (in the short term) you can activate Message Box from ladder?

  24. I have two UniStream PLCs connected on an Ethernet network (Over Fiber Optic). Let's call one the master and the other a slave. Is it possible to duplicate the master onto the slave screen so they show the same thing? The Master is 15" and the slave 10".
  25. The Labels offset value keeps going back to the default -20. Try making the value -30.. then copy/pasting the gauge.. It goes to -20.. It also happens for other reasons unknown but i'm always having to fix it.
