  1. I run into weird stuff like that when the battery is running low. It wouldn't hurt to check.
  2. I only use the E3XB so I don't have to keep different models on the self.
  3. You can also use the drum sequencer if you want to create different flashing patterns.
  4. I did have a reset coil at first, but it reset to the preset time in the timer creating box. So if it was 25 sec but the stored MI was 40 sec the reset coil overwrite the the stored MI. I've removed the reset coil and it worked for weeks, then acted up, then it was fine again. Sometimes just a simple power cycle fixed it. Weird.
  5. I have a pump that is controlled by timers. It is a ~4gall on/minute pump. We calibrated the value so when I enter 6 liters it converts to 25.2 seconds. Then I store this to an ML and that ML to the TA timer by ST TC. Using a flow sensor to make sure there is actual pumping going on. Once the chemical is pumped in the TA timer is 00:00 and it goes to the next step in the process. When the process is over I reset the system by store the preset 6liters to the ML and the TA timer. All this works great, but every couple weeks the TA timer coil stays on even after I stored the new value to it. If I install a reset coil for the timer then it wants to reset to the preset time (in the timer creating window) not to the ST TC. I can't use a TD timer because if during the pumping I have to stop the machine, it would reset to the full amount. I want to continue from the remaining time like all TA timers.
  6. I am not sure why, but I had bad luck with the mini USB port on multiple units (V1210). After awhile they had stopped working and I have to use the rj11 port 1 or 2 with a converter cable. I don't know if it was static or something else.
  7. I have a machine with similar setup. I have it in open loop with an absolute encoder 1000pulse/rev. The gearbox motor drives a 1" 10 start ball screw. Two MIs for fast and slow speed I've used the within range block to switch from fast MI to slow MI. It is open loop, but still achieve 0.005"accuracy. I've used a limit switch at the home position to reset the MIs to 0 so they never get away from me. I've used a NO contact with the run command to store the MIs all the time and reload with SB2 at startup. This way it will remember the las position at startup.
  8. I have the ZebraPrinter.vlp downloaded to a V570. I've made my cable as rj11 Db9 Brow 1. 6 Yellow 2. 5 Green3. 2 Red 4. 3 Black 5. 5 Orange 6. 4 in info mode I have com1 protocol = protocol rs type =RS232 params =9600,8,n,1 silence = 3648us Tx =252 Rx =463 every time I hit touch to print Tc and Rx number go up, but nothing is printing. This is the first time I've tried to print. Btw the printer works fine with usb and print test page from windows 10. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance!
  9. Joe recommended this to me awhile back and it works great. Added plus that you can use teamviewer to get into visilogic and the plc easily. Often hard to deal wit IT to have access to the network. This way I just install a touchscreen laptop as a secondary screen and connect to wifi as a guest. No company sensitive info is accessible, but you have easy access to the plc.
  10. My phone shows I've tried on the plc side, but didn't work.
  11. I've had it working a while back, but I can't connect now. Plc up all sockets are initialized. Plc name is same. Plc is plunged into a switch. My laptop is also plugged into the same switch and able to connect via Ethernet. I can't get it to work on the phone. What gives?
  12. I did that by using the combo box (unilogic) -attributes- options: list-add new text, but it names the row steps not the columns. So if I uncheck a box to skip a step i still have to keep that step for .001sec (no output because it is unchecked) to skip over to the next step. So basically if the operator want to shorten the process and skip 5 steps( uncheck 5 rows) he still need to leave them in place with .001 time or the displayed text will not match the output stems on the data table. He can make his own recipe, but he can't edit the combo box info.
  13. How do I display the column info on the display like a text box? example I have an indexed data table setup as a drum configuration. If I have 20 columns (output 1 to output 20, but renamed to the operation it does) how do I display the elements in the struct that currently running?
  14. Thanks for the replies. I ended up using another laptop side by side.
  15. I've tried it. It works with visilogic, but not with unilogic.
  16. With visilogic we were able to copy from program files (+86) to program files and run 2 visilogic at the same time to compare uploaded program from other versions. It is a useful tool for troubleshooting. Will this be available for unistream?
  17. You can store the date every couple seconds or minutes and compare the stored to rtc. If different hit reset your data.

    Had some time to work on the drum. I was able to edit the data table add more columns and run it like the drum sequencer in visilogic. I can't seem to figure out how to change the time format. The unilogic sample drum has a column "time". I can edit it on the plc screen, but is a MI. 1000 means 1 sec. is there a way to change this a timer (mm:ss)? It would be easier for the operator to enter time instead of milliseconds.

    Now that the coil is not there, I could move 36 and 146 between 35 and 146. I know it is rough. 7 years in college wasted...………….

    What, like you never had a runaway bit. Have to keep them contained. I think I had some other coil on the outside, but got deleted
