signed or unsigned data issues

Recommended Posts


I am using a V1040 communicating with a Weigh cell display via Modbus. Coms are all working fine, but -

The Weigh Cell display returns 3 MI's first is Decimal point then 2 MI's are whole number.

The Vision only deals in signed numbers??


The decimal is sent as an unsigned INT as a fraction of 1.


Eg: If the number is 2.45kg. The decimal point INT will be 29490 ( 29490 / 65535 = 0.45)


The problem is once decimal number is above 32767 it becomes a negative number in the Vision 1040.


Is there a simple way around this???


Please Help have spent many hours on this already.
