Re: Uploading project to X2 Base7 via FTP

Hi John, this is doable so long as you have an SD or Flashdrive installed in the HMI. Below is a subsection of the transfer group documentation found in the "Help" file in iX by pressing F1 while in the developer: Downloading a Project to an operator panel or a PC with an iX Runtime installation Usi...

Re: Old tag values are shown when opening a new screen

Hi X-Anders,
if you are only using one controller you may be able to solve this by attaching a small script to the value change event of the systemtag Communication Errors. If this value is not 0 then you could go through and set the desired tags to 0 values until the PLC comes back.

Re: TrendDataConfig.xml

Hi BuehlerMech,

Unfortunately, this is the kind of error where we would want to review your project for errors. If you ever have odd behavior on transfers my number one suggestion is to use the "Rebuild" function in iX as it completely rebuilds all compiled code and temp folders.

Re: Beijer MEWTOCOL Driver for Panasonic PLCs

Hi lukebarber, We in the US have not tested it specifically. I would recommend reviewing the help file for the driver by going to "Tags" "Controllers""Settings""Help" and looking at the options. It appears the driver was updated to support longer messages in 2016 so i believe you would be able to us...

Re: 2 Alarm groups, 1 Controller. Communication error.

Hi Jussi, There are some gaps here like what panel are you using, what driver is being used and what version of iX is being used... all of that aside i would recommend using wireshark to capture the traffic to pinpoint what is causing the comm error. Often you can see the response that causes iX to ...

Re: Error failed to create object 'alarmserver' during run a

Hi Ridzuan,
This one i am unable to reproduce so it would be beneficial to see a project in this situation... However, one thing to consider is if this project is being run from a network drive we do see similar behavior often. So the best place to store all projects is on your local machine.

Re: Load recipes from local panel

Hi LeenvanderKooij,
You could export the recipes to a flash drive or network drive and then recover them from the PC runtime. There are actions that can be used with things like the scheduler to export/import the recipes at runtime.

Re: Comms Problem with T7B & Multiple Controllers on DH485

Hi HMI_Control, From the sound of this you are using two separate drivers on the same comm port. This is not allowed. Each serial driver requires a unique comm port through which to communicate. You would need to use one driver with multiple stations for each PLC. Stations can be referenced per tag ...

Re: Web server and Data Logger

This can be done... It is possible to Query tables via script and then put the outputs into tags. The downside is you would have to store each result in a tag and then view it in your web page... if you would like to discuss the best ways it may be best to have a discussion about the application and...
