  1. Okay so I stumbled upon data samplers which have fixed intervals, now I am attempting to figure out how to store specific feeds into a data table in a way that fits my user's needs. I'll post my solution if i find one after lunch. Any input in the meantime would be very appreciated also. Got what I needed from an Indexed Data Table.
  2. Hello all, I'm working on Unilogic with a US5-B5-RA28 on version 1.23.25 My overall task is to monitor water usage from a pump house to an entire industrial complex. Part of this involves taking readings by time increments. The user would like two different displays, one every 6 minutes with 10 readings per hour. As well as one every hour, with 24 readings per day. I have two questions about different aspects of data tables, an answer to any part of this post would help tremendously. First, how would one construct a looped timer to trigger a push and/or pop function
  3. Hello all, Still working on a program to monitor the park's water system, for one of my actions I believe I need to use a Schedule setup. From the documentation and toying around I believe I did it correctly but wanted to verify if anybody has a moment to let me know. Working with a Unistream 5" RA28. What I'd like to do is... Every Wednesday, between two user-set times, activate a normally closed relay. The times would preferably be retained through the week if possible. A part that I was confused about is that "Wednesday" is specified in the System/RTC Date/Day Of Week struc
  4. I've never heard it before either to be completely honest. However, my ear is trained to recognize any and every opportunity to make a terrible dad joke.
  5. You must find the person responsible for passing up on the available term "Supportal" and punish them appropriately yet severely
  6. My only goal right now is to establish a connection and keep the Bus COMM light on. Is it possible to do a simple Hardware Config on both programs with a COM Init and a check alive to see if I'm getting a response?? I've been suspecting the wire today but want to make sure before I chop another one up. Obviously exporting and importing the ulri file and matching baud rates and all that fun stuff as well. *three hours later* I had a wrong SB in front of my Send block, fixed it to the right priority and I now face a Status Message of 1, the message is ready to be sent, but the network
  7. Yes, it will have to wait until my break in 6 hours but I will for you and message you the link.
  8. Joe, thank you for your response, ^^I'm not clear on what you mean by this, I spread my MI's out because there is likely going to be more inputs/outputs added as I go on, and to better organize it when that happens. My main concern is with getting one MI through right now so I wasn't too concerned yet about numbering them all sequentially. The DIP is set to ID 2, yes. Also, the MIs in my Unilogic struct for my RC1 do match up with the MI's I grouped oddly in Visi. Thank you again for your time, I will try out the changes you made. I also saw something about having to export from
  9. YINGD, I'm having an issue almost exactly like this, did you ever find out what was missing to complete the Bus COMM link? I'm using an ATC8 but the basic failure to connect to the PLC issue is there, would love to hear back from you or anybody else who knows how to complete this step.
  10. I noticed something time and time again when using Unilogic and the help menu. Unlike Visilogic, Unilogic's help menu stacks on the task bar, which is helpful in keeping everything neat and compact. However, when you use the task bar to navigate between applications, and go back to use Unilogic, whether you select Unilogic or help menu, the help menu is what opens if it was the last thing open. At this point, to switch back to Unilogic, it requires that you hit the minimize button in the corner of the window. This is obviously a very small inconvenience and can be avoided by a number
  11. Hello all, I'm currently working on a monitoring system for the water tank in my industrial park. This will consist of multiple analog inputs, for which we are using an EX-RC1 and an ATC8 that we pulled out of an old project weeks before. This is my first ever project on Unilogic, and I didn't even as much as open the software until this project came to me. So I'm learning both CANbus and Unilogic from scratch. And though it is incredibly easy to use, there are quite a few things that differ from Visilogic which is my only experience in ladder logic to begin with. To learn what I needed t
  12. Not at all, you were more informative than anything. Most people would have stopped at "delusional" Im glad I got to learn a little of how it evolved. Much appreciated!
  13. I'm speaking purely from observational standpoint on the reasons why. I myself don't collect them, but the people that do list the sound as a big reason why, whether it be that the quality is better (which you disproved) or playing a vinyl has a distinct sound as opposed to any other method, I know only what they've said. I trust your take on them, I should have worded it differently implying the music's sound or listening experience might be better not the overall quality. Might buck up and see for myself soon though, I'm a sucker for collectible items. PS. Thanks for the lesson
  14. This 'Codger Lodge' really made me look back on how far technology has come in my 23 years. From controllers without joysticks to motion/pressure sensitive Virtual Reality games, from grueling dial-up tones to instant internet in my pocket almost anywhere. From iRobot starring Will Smith to actual iRobots talking to Will Smith. The tech timeline is moving rapidly, so rapidly that I catch myself saying "back in my day" when I am still in fact in 'my day'. I'm glad I got to witness almost all of it, as I enjoy being able to play the latest, most challenging games on console/pc while being able t
