MVP 2021 Joe Tauser Posted September 2, 2012 MVP 2021 Report Share Posted September 2, 2012 I had a customer ask about how to make the .ur2 file needed for remote operator to work. Unfortunately, it is not clear in the Help that you MUST import the .urc file created by Visilogic to make the .ur2 file in Remote Operator. It took me a bit to figure it out. So for the rest of you in Unitronicsland, here is the procedure: 1. You need to name the PLC using the PLC Name function even if you're only doing serial communication. 2. In Visilogic, create the .urc file: Project->Create Project Files: Clone, .vdf, .dvi, .ura and .urc. 3. Select the HMI Displays tab and click "Create File". Name it whatever you want; it will make a .urc "Remote Access" file. This is where I initially got confused. 4. Start Remote Operator and define the PLC communications as described in the Remote Operator Help. Note that you have to specify the communication parameters AND the PLC name. 5. In Remote Operator, click the Cache File Button and then Import Cache file. Now you can choose the .urc file you created in Step 3. 6. Go to the top bar in Remote Operator and choose "Save". It will create the .ur2 file you were originally looking for to start the session. If you're connected to the PLC, click "Run" in Remote Operator to make sure it works. Joe T.
