Robert Posted January 18, 2011 Report Share Posted January 18, 2011 Hello to all, I have a few questions related to Remote Operator: Equipment/Version: V570 (c/w Ethernet module) running Vision 8.6.0 I have an application that requires me to use the Day of the Week Time function, but it is not supported in RO as of yet. In addition to the Day the week, I also need other date/time functions but I haven't check which ones are support as of yet. When will the DOTW be supported and any other date time functions? Is the new 10.4" screen fully supported with Remote Operator (including full resolution). I have an application, but I don't want to approach my customer until I know that it will work. My customer needs to have remote access to the PLC to set times and functionality from their desk. I know of most of the methods such as OPC, DDE but they require additional hardware and/or software coding to some degree. Remote Operator seems to be the quick and easy solution, but I have an issue with simultaneous connections. They need from 10-15 computers to have access to the PLC. They won't all be on at the same time, but again I cannot ensure that each one will close their connection once they are done. Since I have only have 4 sockets to deal with, I need a way that allows multiple connections on the same socket. I tried using RO with UDP and tested with two computers and it worked, but not sure what the practical limitation is. So the question is: What is the best method to have multiple connections to the PLC and if UDP is the best method, what is the limit? Thank you, Robert Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
