How to take a screenshot from Ladder?

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,
Is there any way to trigger a screenshot within the ladder?
I think it would be a good feature to to have a screenshot that is triggered in the event of an alarm or other event. In this way we can put a lot of data on a hidden screen that would be captured to help in diagnosis of a fault.

Sounds like a good idea; but if you're going to have a screen filled with the data you could create a data table that will have all of your diagnostic info and then write this to a file on a secure digital periodically.  A log file of sorts.

Hi,
There is an "Take Screenshot" action you can use in the "Actions" module.  Example:

Capture.PNG

You can use the "Event Trigger" assigned tag within your Ladder in order to initiate a screenshot.

Thanks for that.
I could not find it before and the help file did not mention it. I use the data table method to save information in VisiLogic, but a screenshot would be easier for a customer to send and debug.

Denis
