  1. Dear Joe, Thank you for your response. The out of range topic is clear for me. How do I change the marking view color?
  2. When I select a list of tekst: Is it possible to change the marking view color? What is the out of range color, back color? The help topic looks outdated, I don't see these items in the help.
  3. Hello, I need to programm two the same processes in one PLC. The program's are a bit complicated, and uses let's say 50 memory bits and 30 memory integers. I was wondering is there a simple way to program this like a module. So that I have only one program to edit when I have to change this? The PLC will be a 350 or a Samba. Thank's a lot. Graatje.
  4. During a start up with a V350 on a self driven cart I noticed the following. The program is also using the alarm utility. I’ve made a manual control for driving the cart. The bit “one of more alarms is pending” activates the alarm screen. The manual control for driving is just a touch button which activates the drive output. I was driving manually and an alarm occurred. The alarm screen pops up but the cart keeps driving even when I released my finger of the screen. I could repeat it and I saw that the touch button bit remains high when an alarm occurred even when you release your finger of the screen. I change this in the program that when an alarm is active the output is disabled. I try here one my desk with another V350. I took a touch button which triggers an alarm. So when I press the button the alarm screen pops up. I release my finger of the screen and again I noticed that the bit of the touch button remains high. Even when you shut of the power and switch it on again. When the esc button of the alarm screen is pressed the bit wil reset. In my opinion it should be when the touch button is not visible anymore, because of a screen change, the bit of this button should reset. The test program is added.

  5. Hi there, I have a few Beckhoff BK5120 remote IO stations which operate with CanBus. Before I start experimenting with them I was wondering if somebody have used these before and maybe have an example program to share with me. Any help is appreciated.
  6. What's the most convenient way to enter a time with the format hh:mm:ss by using the keypad. First I made on the screen 3 displays (variable number) separated by a semicolon, this doesn't look nice. Is it possible to do it easier? I thought I could use the UTC variable, but I only want to entry the time and not the date. In my program I need to entry and also display several times in the format hh:mm:ss. Thanks in advance!
  7. Is it still possibele to use global variables? The help function of version 8.0.1 still refers to it. But is I try as descriped, then I don't see the global variable property. I use V130. If it's not possible what's the easiest way to get the same list of texts into more screens.
