Than you Ausman, I will check my installation. Unfortunately I do not have an option of running an older version. My company picked the latest and if anyone uses a different version we seem to have issues with projects on their end.
I am trying to get a couple of encoders working on a new project. I have attached my program for review. I have done similar in U90 ladder with success but this is my first try in unilogics.
My controller is a US5 B10 T42
The encoders are magnetic and have 13 ppr. and the motor speed is 6000 rpm
I have tried unsuccessfully to change i0 and i1 to high speed
I am not sure what I am missing here except that I assume the encoder is way too fast for the plc to count each pulse, Also I am confused as to why the INC command seems to increase not in time with the encode pulses but with the time that it is enables.
The ultimate goal once I get this figured out is to use the encoders to ensure that they stay synchronized as the actuators move up and down

Hi Mal, only just noticed this post. I am on 9.8.65 and don't have any issues doing what you want. 9.8.65 is an older version but many users on the forum think it the best one at present.
1). Ensure that your Visilogic installation was run as administrator, and that the exe is set to run as admin.
2). When you export to excel you have to click one of the greyed out "Net#" areas for it to happen properly. There is only a tiny change on screen to show that this has been done, in the form of a "dotted" border on the clicked net. My exports do both off and online ok.
3). The page from Help you have shown is all that I know is available. Perhaps a question to official support might elicit more info. If so, please post back.
