  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. 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.
  3. Hi, I have Unistream 10 as a master and multiple slaves (8) over Modbus RS485. What device do I need to connect all the slaves into one master?
  4. This major release of UniLogic, the programming software for UniStream programmable controllers, introduces Multi-Touch HMI screen technology, familiar to us all from the world of cell phones and tablets. Our new UniStream model, the USP-104M10-PLC, supports a range of gestures such as “Swipe” Navigation, Press, Press & Hold, Double-Tap, Press & Tap and more. Use these to boost your client’s user experience, as well as Two-Hand Operation to increase the operational safety of your end-users. Other important features in this release: CANopen: EDS Import, View, Edit, & Ladder Functions UDFB Online: view running values in UDFBs, including local tags MODBUS: Aperiodic/ Periodic Operations per slave, singly or in batches Receive SMS: new Ladder Element, plus Authorized Numbers option SQL: supports MySQL Server and an option to communicate via Port or Instance Name *Cyber-Security Update for FTP & VNC All applications using FTP or VNC must now use passwords of 6 to 8 characters that contain upper and lower-case letters and digits. Upgrading older applications with passwords that do not meet these criteria will result in a compilation error. Hardware Configuration New UniStream: Multi-Touch panel Hardware Configuration now offers the USP-104-M10. This multi-touch model offers gestures such as Swipe navigation, and enables you to trigger actions via Press, Long Press, Press & Tap, double-tap and more, including Two-Hand operation – a recognized safety measure. A single screen can contain elements configured to different triggers. This enables you to add a layer of safety to your screens. For example, you can implement a 2-point press (two-handed operation) that requires the user to press the screen in two distinct locations to activate a task. Communications CANopen EDS Import, View, Edit You can now easily import, view, and edit EDS files for CANopen devices, as well as automatically create PDO structs. New EDS Ladder functions EDS functions enable you to initialize the device with values currently in the EDS file, including values that you edit/enter via UniLogic's EDS utility. In your program, use the In Progress bits to condition the functions. Init Node EDS: Initialize a specific node with values edited/entered via the EDS utility. Init All Nodes EDS: Initialize all of the CANopen nodes in your project Restore Node Defaults: If your CANopen device enables this function, which refers to object 1011 in the node's dictionary, you can use this to reset all of the node's addresses to the manufacturer's default values. Heartbeat CANopen Properties now include Enable Heartbeat. Select this to send a heartbeat from the PLC, according to the time interval specified in the parameter Heartbeat time. The time range is 100 (default) to 100000ms (10 seconds). CANopen CPU Stop Mode Switching to Stop Mode will automatically send a reset command to all nodes. MODBUS New: Aperiodic via Ladder, Operation Batches This version offers the ability to create both Periodic and Aperiodic operations, either one at a time or in batches. Most application requirements are met by Periodic operations, which run according to the time intervals you set. However, you now have greater flexibility to: Use simple Periodic Operations to read/write data from/to many sensors, Use an Aperiodic Operation to write a single setpoint as the result of a run-time condition, Use an Aperiodic Operation to turn a group of outputs ON as the result of a run-time condition. Note that you can prevent an individual operation from running via a bit in the operation's Active parameter. Two new MODBUS Ladder Elements, Aperiodic InDirect and Aperiodic InDirect Group to enable you to trigger a single operation, or a group of operations, via your application. Troubleshooting MODBUS You now have new MODBUS troubleshooting options: A new parameter in the Remote Slave's struct, Drops can help you to troubleshoot projects with a large number of sensors, where the entire queue of operations may not be able to run during the scan. A Status field has been added to the MODBUS operation Parameters. This will hold the error codes from the MODBUS protocol itself. Note that it must be reset in your application. Other Communications SMS: Receive SMS + Authorize Numbers Use this new Ladder element to receive an SMS message and store it along with its metadata. You can also block messages from unauthorized numbers by creating an Authorized Numbers list in Modem Configuration. SQL Server Now supports MYSQL, and the option to use either Instance Name, or Port. Message Composer Float values are now supported. EthernetIP The Scanner Node struct now contains the parameter Connection status. This contains the response status of the connection attempt. HMI & Web HMI: FTP Image Widget Use this widget to stream files from an IP camera that uploads images to an FTP server. The images are cached in a folder on the SD card. Buttons the user to display images, clear the image cache, or to save the images currently being displayed. Data Table Widget This version brings added widget features. You can now: Assign Column Width/Visibility to each individual widget Move the focus and highlight a specific row in a data table by writing a value to the property Tag: Selected Row Index When a data table is displayed, touch anywhere within a row to select that row If you assign a Float value to a column, you can determine the location of the decimal point via by right-clicking the column and assigning it HMI and Webpage Editor Redesign Both editors have been redesigned for faster, smoother function, and load screens - even screens with many elements -faster than before. Other added features include "Snap" behavior: Rotation: While rotating, elements will now automatically snap to angles of 90-180° when approaching these angles. To rotate without snapping, first hold down the Alt button on your keypad, then click and begin the rotation. Alignment: Now, the active element is marked by handles. When moving elements, a snap to middle line is displayed. HMI: Live Trend Widget New Live Trend displays a running variable integer value as a curve on a Trend graph. You may define up to 4 curves. Unlike Trends derived from Data Sampling: Live Trend values are not drawn from a Data Sampler. Live Trends do not store any values, log any data, or create any files. They are convenient for tasks such as representing temperature values, where only monitoring is needed and logging is not required. Web: State Machine Button State Machine Button is now available for Web pages as well as HMI display; use the value of a register to display variable text within a button, and to drive multiple Actions via the button. HMI Element: Password A new attribute, Password Length, allows you to enter a number to limit the number of characters, 1-32, that the user can type into the field. Asian Language Support UniStream now supports the WenQuanYi Zen Hei font which supports Chinese, simplified/traditional, and also Korean. HMI Elements: Digital Schedule & Digital Time When checked, a new attribute, Retain AM/PM Space, retains the Placeholder space for AM/PM when H24 (24-hour format) is selected. Usability Boosters UDFBs: Online Values View online/debug values within UDFBs, including local tags, along with a counter 'since last update': simply right-click the Call UDFB function in the Ladder, and select Monitor. Drag Tags: Assign Tags via CTRL + Drag & Drop A new, easy way to assign tags is via CTRL + Drag & Drop. Press and hold down the CTRL keyboard key, click a tag, and then drag and drop it to assign a ladder parameter or an HMI option. You can drag tags from the tag database window, or a tag assigned as a ladder parameter or HMI option. Formula: Drag from Ladder You can now drag any Formula directly from the Solution Explorer, instead of placing a Formula Ladder element via the Ladder Toolbox and linking it to a Formula. Start Online after Download If you download the same project into UniStream, and are connected to the unit, Online mode now begins automatically. You can cancel this behavior via the UniLogic Project tab, by clicking Options and deselecting Start Online after Download. Handy "Find" ptions The Ladder ribbon tab contains two new icons: that enable you to find rungs that are disabled, as well as rungs marked "ToDo:". To mark a rung, enter the text "ToDo:" including the colon. (the text itself is not case-sensitive) The complete list of features, as well as Bug Fixes may be found at https://unitronicsplc.com/Download/Support/UniLogic/UniLogic_Example_Projects.zip

  8. UniLogic Manuals

    I am new to Unitronics and Unilogic. I 've successfully installed Unilogic on my Windows 7 machine and I had a chance to play with it. I am new to PLC programming and I thought the most efficient way to answer most of my questions is to read the getting started manual first before I spent any more time with Unilogic. I did not find any manuals with the installed program and I did not find any manuals online. Its stupid questions; Is there any Unilogic Manuals? Getting Started manual? I found some for Visilogic but nothing for Unilogic I searched the web all what I found is the YouTube videos. I apologize in advance if i missed the link or if somebody asked this question before. I would appreciate your help. Thank you

  12. 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
  13. Hey all, Can someone point me in the right direction how to make a Unistream PLC send/receive more than 64 bytes in one scan cycle from/to a Vision Standard PLC (eg. V120-22-T2C)? Setup: - V120 equipped with 24 Analog In & 12 Analog OUT - 7" Unistream PLC without I/O - Both connected through UniCAN I know a Vision PLC is able to send/receive up to 512 MI's in one PLC scan cycle through UniCAN. And has no problem sending/receiving multiple messages to/from the same Node ID or multiple Node ID's. In my setup, I want to receive the status of the I/O of the V120 along with some other variables into the Unistream PLC. 24 analog inputs & 12 analog outputs already sums to a total of 36 MI's or 72 bytes to pass to the Unistream. But the Unilogic software gives me only the possibility to create just 1 configuration per Node ID and the tags for receiving/sending can only be as large as 64 bytes. Otherwise, a compile error will occur.. What is the preferred, correct way to accomplish this in the Unistream without having to use a EX-RC1? Grtz, SRO
  14. Working with a new but older Unistream 10. Had to update firmware to be able to download a sample project. Successfully did one go around, apparently had to do it again according to the error message. Was using USB stick to do it. Worked fine the first time, but the second, after reboot, screen is blank and can't communicate via Ethernet or USB. Can't get into the back screen utility either. Suggestions? TIA
  15. EX-RC1 keeps dying

    Hey guys, I have a UniStream 7" PLC connected with EX-RC1 expansion module via CANBUS. The CANBUS is connected according to the info in the datasheet with 120 ohm resistors and everything. The complete configuration that the PLC communicates with from left to right is as follows: EX-RC1, 3 x IO_D16A3_RO16, 2 x IO_ATC8/AI8, IO_D16_A3_RO16. The PLC and the EX-RC1 is grounded and connected as it should. EX-RC1 is programmed (initialized UniCAN) and the LEDS are all working propperly (PWR ON, I/O COMM ON, BUS COMM ON). Accordingly I am able to read/write all the inputs/outputs. So, the whole system and configuration is working propperly. A few (2-3) months later EX-RC1 dies (only PWR LED is ON). I can't read/write any of the inputs/outputs and the IO modules I mentioned earlier all blink ( no communication established). I tried restarting the whole configuration by turning the power supply OFF and then ON. Tried to reprogram the EX-RC1 but when the download starts it shows an error that the device is not available (not sure what the error said). So I thought to myself what the heck. It died, it happens and I replaced the module with a brand new one and installed a separate power supply used only for the EX-RC1. The whole configuration started working again, the comm was up and the PLC software was fully functional (able to read/write and execute). However a few months later ... surprise ... EX-RC1 dies again. The exact same circumstances. Is this a compatibility issue or? Thanks in advance for your help. Any suggestions/ideas are really appreciated.
  16. I need to interface a Unistream with an Omron PLC. Specifically, the OMRON SYSMAC CJ2M CPU31. Omron requires an EDS file for all Ethernet/IP connections and a generic EDS file we found does not seem to work. The Unistream is configured as an adapter and the Omron is configured as the scanner. During testing, I did attempt to switch roles and have the Unistream as the Scanner and the Omron as the adapter, but neither configuration seemed to work. The error message in the Omron indicates a byte count issue; however, with the assistance of an Omron integrator, we confirmed that the number of bytes in and out of the Omron is correct.
  17. I have problem with output. Life expectancy for UID - 0016R is 100k. How many times can I switch the relay output in this unit? Thanks Martin UID 0016R
  18. Hey all, The PLC I'm using is an Unistream 7". I'm writing an application where the PLC needs to communicate with a server through a TCP connection. Communication is established through a Restfull API; - PLC asks the server when needed for a list of all the configured items on the server. This list is JSON-formatted, will be parsed by the PLC and then loaded into a DTI for further use.. - PLC sends updates to server when an item has changed state. - Server sends commands to the PLC when an item needs to change state. Setting up the TCP client Rx was a breeze! Communicating with the server works like a charm if the received messages are smaller than the receiving buffertag of the TCP client Rx FB! (e.g. commands from server to PLC) If larger then the buffertag, the message will be truncated. (e.g. List of items send by server to PLC) => According the help-file: due to insufficient buffer size (user buffer) I noticed that a buffertag can be defined as a maximum of around 1600 bytes. I was wondering why this limit? And then again, if I could enlarge the buffer to say 3500 bytes and my list grows eventually beyond this limit.. So.. How do I receive a message that's larger then my predefined receivebuffer? What am I missing? Tnx in advance, SRO
  19. SD Card Explorer for Unistream

    Hi, Any alternative to the vision series essential app "SD Card Explorer"? This PC application allow explore and download files stored on the SD card from remote, and I cant figure out how Unistream SD Card filed can be approached remotely. I was tinkling of sending files to FTP server, but how can I browse SD card from Unistream panel / (VNC) and select a file to send on FTP server? it seems that HMI element "Sd Browser" can only be use to transfer files to a local DOK. I believe that If it had the option of coping a selected file name to global tag (string) then it could be used with "FTP Send" function. For now the only solution I found is to use pen and paper to copy a file name from the list, and retyping file name somewhere else on the HMI, but there must be a better way... Thanks in advance to the appliers. Ofer
  20. Hello When I convert an data sampler file (.uspm)to Excel it contains a column called "triggered" that is not the name of a variable I am logging. The value called "triggered" seems to react fast changes in logged value (se after time 20:56:27) and be more correct than the actual value(s)saved as logged (ATinRaw, and TTinRaw). Is this because the trend tool contains a built in filter? Is there any way to turn this filter off?

  21. Hello, I am/was completely new to Unitronics hardware, and thereby UniStream by default LOL, until of 9:00am this morning, so please do not assume any level of knowledge specific to the device. My apologies for the overly specific sequence of events to follow, but I need help and do not wish to loiter on how exactly things came to pass. Unboxed HMI Panel (USP-070-B10), CPU (USC-P-B10), and DIO Module (UIS-WCB1) Removed battery slip from CPU Removed Bus Connector Cover from CPU Attached CPU to HMI Panel Attached DIO Module to HMI Panel Slid DIO Module's Bus Connector Lock to the left into CPU Connected 24VDC Supply to HMI Panel Installed UniLogic Opened UniLogic Connected USB cable from (Corporate) HP EliteBook 8770w (running Windows 7.3 64bit) USB to HMI Panel *Windows installer opened* *Windows installer failed* *HMI Panel Rebooted* *HMI Panel Rebooted* *HMI Panel Rebooted* *HMI Panel Rebooted* ... *HMI Panel Rebooted* Disconnected USB cable from computer *HMI Panel booted to Demo* (repeated process 3 times) Unplugged 24VDC connector Exited UniLogic Force closed "Unitronics.Notifier.exe" via Windows Task Manager Plugged in 24VDC connector *HMI Panel booted to Demo* Opened UniLogic Connected USB from computer to HMI *HMI Panel Rebooted* *HMI Panel Rebooted* *HMI Panel Rebooted* *HMI Panel Rebooted* ... *HMI Panel Rebooted* Disconnected USB cable from computer *HMI Panel booted to Demo* Can anyone offer me help here to get this to connect via USB?

  22. Hi all, Anyway to convert between string types? I would like to store an ASCII string to Data Sampler/User Comment 1 string that is build as UTF-32. while compiling the app get an error: Data type mismatch. Thanks in advanced, Ofer
  23. I have an application where the PV moves very fast. When a known disturbance or an anticipated disturbance occurs, I would like to pause the PID loop calculation and lock by CV where it is. I see that Unilogic has a Pause I&D calculation that seems to be the feature to use in this sort of situation but what I am wondering is whether or not I would have better results if I simply de-energized the PID Run Block and then re-energized it when the process is expected to be stable again. In other words, what is the difference in the calculation between simply removing the PID Run command and Pausing the I&D calculation?
  24. UniLogic with EX-RC1

    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?
  25. Hello. Does anybody have some tips on how to enter exponential numbers into HMI "Numeric Box"? Example: 1.347E-19
