  1. Hi everyone, We want to report the data records that we keep daily via e-mail at the end of the day. We have implemented the shipment with the help of examples but we have problems sending the data records in the form of an excel report. Columns and rows are interfering. Thanks for yours support ...
  2. I am trying to communicate between my visilogic PLC software and V350 series PLC controller using direct USB programming cable (USB A to USB mini B). I have downloaded and installed the mini USB driver from unitronics website. but am continuously getting the same problem "Windows found your software but encountered a problem while installing it" Please find my attached Screenshot ..
  3. Hello, I am using a V570 with V200-18-E2B snap IO. Software version is 9.8.65 I am linearizing a pressure sensor (4-20 ma) to be able to read from 0 to 30.00 inHg. As you can see in the image below I made y2 a value of 3000 to be able to display it with 2 decimals in the HMI. However I still need to get it with 2 decimals into a Float (MF) to be able to convert this value to mbar by multiplying it by 33.86. So basically what I can't figure out is that if I get a value 3000 (30 inHg) I need to be able to put into a float 30.00, If I get 15 should be able to put into a float 00.15 and so on. Is this something that can be done by using Num to Ascii and putting the ascii value into 2 MIs? then using those 2 MIs into a float convert A+b/n? I am hoping somebody point me in the right direction in how to achieve this. Thanks in advance
  4. 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?
  5. Dear forum members, hope u all r doing well, I cannot able to fix this simple concept pls provide solution for this below, 1.I have connected 1 pump and when my input bit is on my pump will ON. On timer is 10 sec ON and off timer is 30 sec OFF, now i facing problem is how to vary my pump timer via hmi screen i cant able to call my timer address...pls provide solution for this regards, mohamed
  6. Greetings, I'm new to this form and to Unitronics PLCs and I would like to ask for some help/ I previously programmed "allen bradley" PLCs using a software called "RSLogics". The were 4 programming languages that I can use to build the PLC program. However, VisiLogic doesn't have "Structure text" language. I already have done the analog conversion using formulas and created the HMI, but I'm stuck now The program that I am trying to make is simply as follows: A number is written using the HMI and stored in a variable. This number is then compared to analog reading of the pressure sensor. If the numbers were different, then one analog output will be changed to reflect the number entered using the HMI - which will control a pressure regulator. Could anyone please help me with this issue ? Many thanks, Qassim
  7. Hello friends, I am new to Unitronics hardware and have about 1 year experience with ladder logic (studio 5000 up to this point). I am tasked with writing a program for a machine that uses the following components and I just need some help on choosing the right Unitronics PLC and what snap-in's I will need to work with the components: -conveyer belts (1 requires indexing/location tracking) -motor driving an actuator -motor moving a tray back and forth along rails -9 load cells I am leaning towards the Vision 350 TR20 currently, and it looks like the IO-LC3 module supports up to 3 load cells each, so I will need a PLC that supports at least 3 expansion ports (one for each IO-LC3) Also, in general I am wondering about how servos/motors are added to a program using Unitronics, it seems like there us usually a data bit to enable the servo (maybe controlling the power supply) and then a bit representing motor go/stop? Any help you all have is greatly appreciated, thank you in advance!
  8. I am having issues trying to run the live update tool in VisiLogic to update a PLC's operating system. When I check for updates for the operating system I get the error message attached (Error Code 176). I have a perfectly fine internet connection at the time the live update tool is ran. This problem occurs in VisiLogic 9.5.0.
  9. Hey all, I am new to Visilogic and I am trying to follow through tutorials. I am currently trying to interface a single EX-RC1 via CANBus to a V570. On the EX-RC1 I have a IO-DI16 and IO-RO16. I have tried to download the sample Visilogic programs to the PLC, however, I am not entirely sure if I am doing it correctly. I have flashed the V570_CAN Master for EX-RC1.vlp on the V570 successfully, however, the screen shows "COMM ERROR UNIT #2". When I tried to download the EX-RC1.vlp to the PLC it says "The PLC model selected in this project's Hardware Configuration conflicts with the model with which you are communicating." I am programming through the USB cord to the V570 with a baud rate of 115200. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Greg

    correctional signal

    How to realize correctional signal in PID block using Control value(CV) from another PID block?
  11. 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!

  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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?
  18. 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?
  19. 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?
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. I have a project that requires me to use FTP to send and retrieve .csv files from an FTP server. I know someone has written a program to send files via FTP for Visilogic, and I am currently working with the example that tech support sent me (still have to work out some bugs) but has anyone here used FTP to retrieve files via FTP and put them on the SD card? Thanks for your help Kurt
