  1. Hi Splathappy, IO Link is an extension to existing protocols. You could use an EthernetIP Field coupler that speaks IO Link to make it work. AXL E EIP IOL8 DI4 M12 6P From Phoenix Contact can make this happen for you. BTW IO Link is definitely something great to look at! Best Regards,
  2. Hello, Do we have a filter option or UDFB for a variable not analog input?
  3. Hello, I just upgraded to windows 10 and the driver does not seem to work. Have you tested compatibility with this new windows?
  4. I am communicating to a remote IO system not from Unitronics. This IO System has 16,32, and 64 Digital Inputs or Output Modules but will only receive the information in 16bit registers via modbus in holding registers. In order to translate digital values to registers I can use the num to bit or bit to num option of the unistream but I am bound to using an array of bits to use it. I have my variables declared differently in my program therefore I need to use a lot of programming space and time to do it. For example let's say I have variables named Valve1Open, Valve2Open, Valve3Open, ect. First I need to create an array of bits ex OutputArray[0..16] Then for each variable I need to do: Valve1Open == InputArray[0] Valve2Open == InputArray[1] Valve3Open == InputArray[2] ... and so on. Then BitstoNum from OutputArray to get my OutputRegister to use in modbus. For projects with multiple modules than can take 100-200 IOs or more this can get frustrating. I would like to use a UDFB to put in all my variable names and just get 16 bit register as a result and reuse the block to reduce time,space, and variables. Therefore I need at least 16 inputs/outputs on the UDFB. But I could find more applications for UDFBs with more that 10 Inputs and Outputs.
  5. I agree to increase the UDFB In and Out. Scrolling down really isn't that bad.
  6. Hello, Currently the limits for the UDFBs is 10 input and 10 outputs. Is it possible to use more? I am having applications which require 16,32 and 64.
  7. Hello, How do we use the num to bit function? I can't find it in the help file.
  8. Hello, What is the difference between the UAG-XK125 and UAG-XKP125 in terms of application? Thanks!
  9. Hello, I made a program where by customer request he wants the touchscreen of a V560 disabled. I made everything so navigation was from ladder but the numeric variables need to be touch activated. Is there any way to by pass the touchscreen? Thanks
  10. Great! That is exactly what I needed. So I will quote with the V560. Thanks!
  11. Hello Stein, This is because the operators usually damage touchscreen HMI. The client wishes to have a color screen but not use the touchscreen to place values. Is there any way to do this?
  12. Hi all, I wish to use a V560 in a project only for its color properties and not for the touchscreen. Still I wish to use the keypad for entries like in a V130 for example. With blinking cursors and a tab entry when I press enter. Is this possible? If so does anyone have a sample program? Thanks!
  13. Hello Ofir, I am using the socket 3 init function for the Modbus Socket. This is because sometimes the Modbus TCP will "freeze" and this has solved my problem in the past. SB1698 is active. I am using socket 3 for the Modbus. And socket 2 for the Remote Operator. Socket 2 Init is only used in power up. I am using the latest version of Remote Operator. I already tried the timeout settings but has not helped.
  14. Hi guys, Is it possible to have trends on a complex web server?
