  1. Kratmel's card.......I'm still gobsmacked when I see a TIF card with 512GB. I point out to blase youngies how much separate stuff is actually crammed into that tiny space, and they still don't really seem that amazed. How times change. And let's all remember this is the stuff that's available off the shelf, not hidden away in some development lab. John's sliderule....There was a fantastic episode of "Utopia" here in Aus a while back. An older guy was brought into the office and was checking out project costs he thought hugely excessive, in no time at all. Did it all with a sliderule

  2. Re the Help page woes, you all need to have a 95 year old Parent. You would have solved it in a flash. I am forever fixing computer issues he creates by having clunky fingers that click buttons as he moves the mouse around. To compound things, he "reads" with the mouse . The end result is that all sorts of internal edges and other things appear/disappear and I need another remote fix session to figure out what he's done this time. "Damn computer's broken!" "Welllll...no it's not. Just the user has stuffed something up again". I admire him persisting with using it, but

  3. Just place a Numeric variable on the HMI screen and check the box for Keypad Entry.

  5. I remember seeing a memory device similar to this at my first mentors workshop back in the mid '70's It was an archaic thing at that point, but I seem to remember that the memory bank included inductor/cap/resistor circuits that "remembered" their last logic state, and transferred that with some sort of FIFO logic. Crazy thinking back in those days, but we wouldn't be where we are without it.... 😵 Now, what happens when you throw one of these in front of a young'un? I still have my first TI-35 scientific calculator that I bought in the '70's....

  6. I do not test this but maybe you must try to use another encoder HSI inputs for block2

  7. Just copy the inputs and outputs you want to read into a vector of MBs and do a Read Coils.

  8. Analog input one is 6-7-8. 3-4-5 is analog 0.

  10. This looks like what happens when you FORCE an input while online with VisiLogic. I thought that was cleared out with a PLC reboot, but perhaps I'm mistaken. Go online with VisiLogic, click on the Input, RIGHT-click in the popup window on the grayed out button labeled SET, then click Cancel Force.

  11. You're right, averaging can get really complex in a hurry, but the specific task you have seems pretty easy. Try this:

  13. An MI is a 16-bit signed integer. By definition it cannot hold a number outside the range of -32,768 - 32,767. An ML is a 32-bit signed integer which has a range of -2,147,483,648 to 2,147,483,647. If there is ANY possibility of a number outside the range of -32,768 - 32,767, then you must use an ML.

  14. Hi Nicklamp Please see below link, it gives the ranges for standard and enhanced controllers. At the bottom of that there are further links to webinars that will help setting up. if you have succeeded in reading MI's then you have the hardest part done. To read MI's you probably used the modbus block 3 - "read holding registers", for inputs use block 2- Read Inputs. Input 0 will be 6000h https://support.unitronics.com/index.php?/selfhelp/view-article/vision-and-modbus-communication

  15. I might be missing something here, but can't you simply change the MI to an ML? Adjust the numeric controls to suit your new needs. cheers, Aus

  16. @Cara Bereck Levy Take a look at this post, especially near the bottom- If you look at the post reference chain within thus post you'll see that the question of reading floating point values from energy meters is a very recurring theme. It's a common occurrence for word order is always backwards from what Unitronics is expecting. Ask the Creators how hard it would be to add a new type of Operation to the Registers tabs for function 3 and function 4 - "Read Holding Registers Swap Words". If you look at the Official Modbus Protocol Specification- https://modbus.org

  17. Hi everyone!I'm developing a project with UniLogic v1.25.61 for the UniStream USP-104-B10. I would like to know if someone have linked UniStream with any API to send Whatsapp messages instead of emails or SMS. If not, can anyone suggest where to start exploring? Thanks in advance! Gonzalo

  18. Hi, even on programming languages like c# it's incorrect to show a view from code (for example a messagebox). Message boxes are usually required for a user input, and are in most cases 'code blocking' (The next command will not executed until the message box is closed, since it is waiting for a dialog result). In UniLogic, message boxes are shown in a response to a user interaction (clicks, for example), and the result of the user interacting with the message box is clicking on one of the buttons (OK/Cancel/Yes/No) is executing 1 or more actions defined by the programmer.
