Remote Operator Support and Functionality

Recommended Posts

Hello to all,

I have a few questions related to Remote Operator:

Equipment/Version: V570 (c/w Ethernet module) running Vision 8.6.0

  1. I have an application that requires me to use the Day of the Week Time function, but it is not supported in RO as of yet. In addition to the Day the week, I also need other date/time functions but I haven't check which ones are support as of yet. When will the DOTW be supported and any other date time functions?
  2. Is the new 10.4" screen fully supported with Remote Operator (including full resolution). I have an application, but I don't want to approach my customer until I know that it will work.
  3. My customer needs to have remote access to the PLC to set times and functionality from their desk. I know of most of the methods such as OPC, DDE but they require additional hardware and/or software coding to some degree. Remote Operator seems to be the quick and easy solution, but I have an issue with simultaneous connections. They need from 10-15 computers to have access to the PLC. They won't all be on at the same time, but again I cannot ensure that each one will close their connection once they are done. Since I have only have 4 sockets to deal with, I need a way that allows multiple connections on the same socket. I tried using RO with UDP and tested with two computers and it worked, but not sure what the practical limitation is. So the question is: What is the best method to have multiple connections to the PLC and if UDP is the best method, what is the limit?

Thank you,

Robert

1. At the moment Remote Control does not support the time functions.

2. Remote Control does support the V1040.

3. It is possible to connect numerous computers to the same socket.

Stein,

What is the process for requesting that this feature be included in a build? I have an application pending that requires this functionality for Remote Operator, can you give me an idea how long the process is?

Thank you,

Robert

The application mainly deals with machine startup & shutdown times. The Untronics will be acting as the Master controller that sends and recieves signals from various PLC's in the plant. It will be the single point of control for machinery runtimes, lighting and shift buzzer control. Without the day of the week function working, I will not be able to allow for easy adjustment of long weekend and holidays (the PLC is deep in the Plant and the computer will be the point of adjustment). The 'Day of Week', 'Month' & 'Day of Month' are not currently supported in Remote Operator, but I have an immediate need for Day of Week with hopefully the rest following soon.

Thank you,

Robert
