Hello, 

I am new to Unitronics and my question is regarding data logging for vision 130 PLC/HMI. 

1) How long does it take to setup data logging so that data gets saved to an SD card? Is it very simple that it takes only few hours or does it take a couple of weeks? 

2) Is it possible to save the data in the form of a pdf or some sort of read-only file that can be opened on a computer? 

Thanks,

Anil.

An experienced programmer should be able to do it in a few minutes (up to a few hours depending on the complexity of what you're logging). It can easily be logged to a .csv file that can be opened in Excel on a computer.

Thanks @Flex727 for your prompt response :) 

Is it possible to make it save to a read-only .csv file? Or a password protected file or a pdf? 

Thanks,

Anil.

That would be logically impossible. You're asking the PLC to log to the file - it can't be read-only if you want to write to it. You can always change the file attribute after you remove the SD card from the PLC and transfer it to a PC.

am091,  you might also like to have a look at this post (and topic), which explains the procedure a little.  Not the type of file Flex is talking about, but one of the various options of writing to the card.

cheers, Aus
