  1. I'm recording daily rainfall in mm to a datatable. How might I go about setting the decimal place in the data table to a resolution of xxx.x mm? Is it also possible to hide the # on the HMI data table display? Developers: It would also be nice if we could adjust the Row Heights as well... TIA
  2. Has anyone had success with the new "indirect, External SD, path via tag feature? This functionality is pivotal to one of my upcoming projects. I am not having any luck getting it to work with SD card installed in Unistream (\Docs\example.pdf) . If I put sample file in root directory of DOK (USB flash drive) it will open file from filename in tag no issues. I have not tried root directory on SD card. Project direct puts them in "docs" folder. Help file show syntax when file is in subfolders however I have no success. Help, please and thank you.
  3. Hi, Is there a way to import more fonts into Unilogic? I see the font format in the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Unitronics\UniLogic\Fonts are ".ulf" but I'm not sure how to make a font file from microsoft (TrueType font file (.ttf)) into a .ulf and then have unilogic allow me to select in the font properites selection tool or at the top of the software under the edit. Also, the text properties at the top of unilogic is always disabled no matter what is selected. What is that edit tab for if it is constantly disabled or what am I missing?
  4. Hello I need to build an application in UniLogic like the screen shot attached. In the upper left corner i have a text box for description, and then 23 numeric box . and i have a button to write row to DTI. Then below the brown horizontal line i have a text box for entering a specific description than correspond to a specific row number. I can find the row number and then read the row from DTI. So a can modify the row and then write the new value to the same row, or i can remove row from DTI. I need that the text box below the brown line to be a drop down list so the operator don't have to write the description (because it may be writing with mistakes) but only select it. I am not finding any solution. Can any one please show me the way to do this? Thank you
  5. What are some ways to speed up screen changes in your project? I have a screen with 9 data tables (1 visible at a time based on the value from a combo box) and about 30 buttons (same only 3 visible based on combo box value) It takes about 5 seconds to load this screen. What are some ways to speed up screen changes and optimize HMI design?
  6. Dears, I will have to include a pdf file that is 25 MB; this pdf has 20 pages and each page is sized as others...then, more or less, 1300 KB for each page....what is the max size of the pdf file and for the single page that the pdf viewer can manage? until now my pdf files was around 300-400 KB and I don't had problem but this file include many pictures with "high" definition then is quite heavy...then I need to know if I have to reduce again the quality of the pictures or not (I know about the HMI resolution...in my case 800x480). thanks PS: I found in the "hardware" forum that, as internal storage, the limit is 4MB...I will store the pdf in the SD...then each page can has a size until 4MB?
  7. Hello! I need to add dynamic elements to the program window. I have not found how to bind the coordinates of the object to variables. Is there such a possibility in UniLogic/UniStream?
  8. Hi, Where do I find how to change the data table font size appears in the HMI screen?
  9. Hello, new here but i have experience programming unitronics PLCs. A year ago i program one Vision 700 PLC for an oven. The program manage the oven and record temperatures. When the process ends. PLC send an email with the recordings. After three months with daily use the PLC stop working correctly. The user cant change the variables throught HMI. When touch the Variable box in HMI to change it nothing happened. The touch screen worked fine and user can touch other HMI Buttons but not Variables. What i did was zero all the PLC operants to default. Then everything works fine.After some time of use the same problem happened. I am trying to find a solution. My thought is that this has to do with an SB or SI but not sure. The program seems ok with no compile errors. Waiting for help.
  10. i am create application with messages for audit traill actions the operation. I wold like select the message with index , show in left collun. But not found way for select message for write in table dti or external ( sql table). I need help for optimize application and not repeat many times same code. i hope developer team create one way for create selection more easy. regards,
  11. 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
  12. I need to find an intrinsically safe rated mouse with a USB connection for an Explosion Proof Environment. Does anyone have any experience finding one that works? I have used a standard USB Mouse without issue but I have found that when I purchased the mouse fund at the link below, it works on a PC but not with the Unistream Panel, instead, the HMI would not detect it. I am thinking that it has something to do with either the driver or that it is intrinsically safe and perhaps the signal is a bit too weak. Rather than buying multiple mice until I find one that works, I was hoping that someone can point me in the right direction. https://www.spartonre.com/ruggedkeyboards/rugged-pointingdevices/ftm-pm-fsr-panelmount-industrial-pointing-device/ If it is a driver issue, does anyone know if there is a definition of the driver in the Unistream panel that the mouse needs to have that I can then ask the mouse manufacturer if it has? Any feedback would be appreciated.

  16. Hello , is there any way to change AI min/max scaled value by HMI?
  17. Dear sir/Madam, I done small projects with UniStream. I got one large project. Can i have some help to carry out this project. I am not so professional oly a small scale programmer. I'm attaching one of screen shots of an existing project. we are planning to upgrade this with Unistream PLC. In the photo red color valves, when we touch on particular valve a pop up screen should come with showing two buttons OPEN CLOSE. like at right side upper corner of the screen. can we do this by designing single screen and when touch the valve the screen will pop for with that particular valve number. or we have to make pop screen for each valve. like this there are 3 screens with same number of valves. I did not buy the HMI UNIT and CPU to try. Please help.
  18. Hi! I'm programming an UniStream Modular USP-070-B08 + CPU USC-P-B10 with UniLogic v1.25.61. I want to create an array of INT16, which its length, will be set by the user through the HMI. Is it possible? Because when I create the array in Ladder, I can only set a constant value for the array's length. I want to try something similar with the number of rows for a table. Thanks in advance!
  19. I'm working on a UniStream project and I've got a simple question. In VisiLogic, an image could have a transparent background by checking the appropriate box in the image properties. When that box was checked every pixel in the image that was the same as the pixel in the upper left corner would assume the color of the background, thus rendering the parts of the image "transparent". I can't find a similar option in UniLogic. In the Help file, there is mention of something identified as "Background Color \ Image" which looks like it might apply, but that property is not present in my version of UniLogic (1.12.20) when I select the image. What am I missing?
  20. Hello, I'm having some issues with understanding how Unitronics integrates the HMI inputs to the PLC inputs. This is a vague start, but I have a state machine going (this project is essentially done and I've made it through it with some work-around), that requires user input to move from one state to the next. I am currently using the Set/Reset on the HMI buttons but many of the buttons seem to get stuck in the ON state (the program has moved to the next sub-state in the program), even though the logic is no longer true. Why does it do this? I see suggestions in the forums about using the positive transition input, but how does this interact with the "Set bit" function of the HMI button? Does the HMI button reset? Here's an example of the program: Subroutine 1 State 1 Stuff happens User pressed HMI button to move to state 2 (ON) subroutine state = 2 State 2 Stuff happens And this is where I get a little confused on how this works because the User input to move to state 2 from state 1 will stay ON instead of resetting. I've gotten around this my simply resetting everything (not-output to reset the HMI button) at the end of the process sequence , but this seems gimmicky Thanks for any input
  21. Greetings all. We have started a minor project at work and we are, admittedly, pretty new to doing any sort of networked communications from PLC to PLC. We have 3x V700 currently and what we hope to accomplish is simply to have (perfect world) a full rendering of the remote HMIs on each of the PLC. Therefore, PLC A would have a link to go to PLC B's HMI and another link to go PLC C's and be able to see the HMI as if standing at that PLC - akin to the iOS remote operator app or using the Windows remote operator software. The question in the end is has this already been easily implemented in some way? Otherwise I assume we would have to use TCP/Modbus or UDP_Raw to pull in valves from PLC B and PLC C but have the HMI of the remote PLC be copied into PLC A's project files. Doing so would make it tedious to keep up with changes to the other PLCs to back implement in the PLC A's code so that the HMI would look correct and all the variables continue to match. If anyone has tried to do a complete remote HMI mirroring / remote op from a secondary PLC, please advise on any tips that might point us in the least painful direction. Cheers!
  22. Hi, Searching the help file, I was unable to find any information on the $ used in the title for numeric box, I did however find something here and it showed how to use the $. "Current Box Count ($_title)" so when you enter in a value to the numeric box the $_title uses the min and max values used even if they're variables, so it would look like this; "Current Box Count (0 - 49)" as 0 is my min value and 49 is my max value that is a variable. I just wanted to say I've always wanted something like this in Visilogic, now that you have perfected it in UniLogic, can you add this great feature to Visilogic? Thanks, Don2015
  23. Hello, I have been wondering. Has anyone ever needed to enable the end user to somehow print the screenshots from graphs? If yes, then how did you manage to make it work? From what I found out, one can send messages to the printer, can send txt files, but so far, I have not found a way to make it print the screenshots. I already asked support, and seems there is no official way. Or is the only option to send it trough mail and make the end user print it from PC? Edit: If having more info is ever gonna make a difference, I am using UniStream PLC USP-156-B10 with an HP LaserJet printer M203dn, connected trough Ethernet, which supports PCL 5, PCL 6, and (pen plotter control command ) HP-GL/2, also FTP printing, LDP printing, 9100 Printing, IPP printing, IPPS printing, AirPrint, WS-Print. I have sent text messages trough the TCP Printer Example, and trough the FTP client example successfully to be printed.
  24. Hi, I am using unistream PLC and trying to display pdf documents to the user. I notice that it is not possible to store more than 4Mb. Is there any way to overcome this issue? use SD card maybe? thanks
  25. I have a medium sized program that runs without problems on its own. I was requested to have a video play on the HMI as a sort of screensaver. I added this by using a default bit in UniLogic called "General.Touched Bit" that goes high when the screen is touched. I used this to reset a 1 minute timer (see picture 1), this way the timer would reset back to 1 minute countdown every time the screen was touched. When the timer runs out a bit i named "Run Video" goes high which i then use in "Actions" to load a screen named Video (see picture 2 and 3). This screen consists of 2 elements. The video element taking up the full screen size and an invisible button over it. The video settings can be seen in picture 4. The button is used just to load last screen. This when tested works just as requested except if the video has been running for a while the whole HMI freezes. The PLC functions remain and the other processes still work, but the HMI is unusable until a forced reset by power loss is done. My setup can be seen in picture 5 and my HMI is the Unistream 7" Modular. If anyone knows what causes the HMI freeze when playing video a reply is much appreciated. I have considered the HMI heating up being the problem, but doesn't seem to be the case.
