  1. Hey all, I'm new programmer in visilogic IDE and my device is v130-33-TA24. My program purpose is to communicate via RS485, 9 bits to receive data from device. I initialized COM1 and set protocol Send&Scan by the connected device protocol. but nothing is show on screen(I've linked the received data into number on screen). I add some pictures for description. I'll be glad for help
  2. We have one unitronics V570 PLC/HMI unit, getting issue with communication, actually we've not tried before anytime this kind of communication because it's used RJ11 port for download upload procedure and my laptop support USB port, and also we have one MJ10-22-cs25 with RJ11 cable but we've no idea about communication. I've configured baudrate and com port setting in my laptop as per PLC configuration but still we did nt get idea. please tell me the procedure and proper solution for this. Thanks, Shaktisinh Dabhi Application Engineer
  3. Hello everyone, I'm currently modifying in an already given visilogic program for my project, and the very 1st blocs in it are the ones shown in the pic attached. I want to ask you if you have any ideas about the functions used, what do they do ? and can you explain to me how these blocs are supposed to work ? Thanks in advance
  4. Hello, Does anyone know of any problems with including both a Modbus Config and a Protocol config for the same COM port in the same program? I'm talking to a peripheral device which under certain circumstances may need to be sent an ASCII Protocol command to switch it to Modbus mode, so I will need to be able to do both types of communication in the same program on the same port. Can the two coexist, or will I need to re-execute the appropriate Config block when switching from one communications mode to the other?
  5. Hello, I am trying to communicate with the Art-Net to DMX interface (from DMX4ALL) via LAN. I have to send a specific message to the interface so it knows what to do. The message is as you can see in the attachment. I can connect to the interface with the "TCP/IP CONNECT" function block, but I cannot communicate with the interface. Can anyone tell me how I can make the message in the "Protocol: TCP/IP Send" function block? Thanks in advance. Edwin ArtDmx.pdf
  6. Hello, I've got a problem with the SEND block of the PROTOCOL FB's, I need to calculate the checksum according to CRC-16 algorithm with initial value 0x0000, but the only available option is CRC-16 (Modbus) where the initial value is 0xFFFF. Is there a way to change the initial value, or add this checksum algorithm? Another problem is the order bytes in the calculated checksum, maybe you could add an option to swap bytes?
  7. People who see the SD Card Explorer in action usually sometimes wish to have the same functionality in their own application.Some of them contact Unitronics in order to get some details on the protocol, or ways that they can do the same, while others fear from the worst: that it's a lot of work.I know very few people that will be happy to write the whole protocol by themselves.The only guy I can think of in that matter is Ash Nielson... I have no idea where he gets his strength and energy from, but the solution for this problem is actually simpler than you think.You don't have to be energetic as Ash in order to write your own SD Card Explorer because the .Net communication driver actually contains all the logic If you don't know what the .Net communication driver, then please refer to the Downloads section on the main website (not the forum) it has some examples + the source code of the .Net communication driver.For those of you who does know how to work with it, I can assume that you are already familiar with the all mighty and magical PLC object.Within the PLC object, hides a small sub class called SD.This class gives all the capabilities of reading and writing files and also listing directories and deleting files.So how do we get started:Lets assume that we have a Serial port called serialLets create a PLC object:PLC plc = PLCFactory.GetPLC(serial, 0);All the code that I will write will be in C#, but the syntax in VB.net is not much different.Now that we have a PLC object called plc, we can access it's SD Class.Please note that SD capabilities are only available to the Enhanced PLCs (V570/V130/V350).Before I give any more code examples, I'll list the Public functions inside the SD Class:public Folder Dir(ProgressStatusChangedDelegate del)Returns a Dir of all Folders and files in the SD (Dirs the Root). ProgressStatusChanged is being used to return the Status, Pecentage and Action of the current Statuspublic Folder Dir(SdFolder sdFolder, string filesExtension, bool scanSubFolders, ProgressStatusChangedDelegate del)Requests Dir Syncrhronously. Accepts SdFolder enum as the path to list, extension for example "*.*", and some other paremeterspublic Folder Dir(string folderName, string filesExtension, bool scanSubFolders, ProgressStatusChangedDelegate del)Requests Dir Syncrhronously. Same as above, but path is string and not enumpublic byte[] ReadFile(string folderName, string fileName, ProgressStatusChangedDelegate del)Read File Syncrhronously. Reads the whole file from SD and then returns it's content as Byte Arraypublic byte[] ReadFile(SdFolder sdFolder, string fileName, ProgressStatusChangedDelegate del)Read File Syncrhronously. Reads the whole file from SD and then returns it's content as Byte Array.Gets SdFolder as path instead of stringpublic void ReadFile(string sourceFolderName, string sourceFileName, string targetFolder, bool resumeRead, ProgressStatusChangedDelegate del)Read File Syncrhronously. Reads the file and each chunk that is being read is instantly written into diskpublic void WriteFile(SdFolder sdFolder, string fileName, byte[] fileContent, ProgressStatusChangedDelegate del)Write File Syncrhronously. Since we only allow writing files into Authorized folders only then this function only accepts SdFolder enum as path and not as stringpublic void DeleteFile(string folderName, string fileName, ProgressStatusChangedDelegate del)Deletes a file... DUHH!!! (Sorry, I had to do that)public void DeleteFile(SdFolder sdFolder, string fileName, ProgressStatusChangedDelegate del)Same as above, but with SdFolder enum as pathAlso consider using:public static string GetSdFolderAsString(SdFolder sdFolder)and the opposite function:public static SdFolder GetSdFolderFromString(string path)Coming up next... Real code. SD Card Explorer Code revealed.Come back to our next episode next week
