Hi all,

This Topic will list items that are worth an easy find, are odd things that standout, but are not quite "pinnable" on their own.  If we pin everything that is useful, it will all become one big mess on page 1 (or bigger!).  I suggest that if you want something added to the list, contact myself or another mod to have them edit it into this existing list that I see as having carefully considered updating.  To save space, only links will be shown, not full previews, with the Header or a Description listed before the link. 

Sometimes the link will take you to a particular post within a Topic that is the answer, but a full topic read will never go astray....history is useful.

It is also worth noting that this has not been written in plc talk----hence no item 0.  😉

  1. Just a link to the Help Centre, which perhaps many people don't know about.  The link actually goes to the Vision/Samba firmware update troubleshooting page, but you can easily back out of there using links under the Help Center heading to find many other topics about all things Unitronics.     https://support.unitronics.com/index.php?/selfhelp/view-article/visionsamba-firmware-upgrade-troubleshooting
