[TD410][TD710][TD810][TD820][PL500] Video Advanced Tutorial

Post by Pixsys tecnico 6 »

These video tutorials show you how to pursue your goal using advanced Movicon objects and complex LogicLab functions.

Please read the "Basic Tutorial" section before continuing.

8.This tutorial video describes how to create, manage and display an alarm table on a Movicon screen.

a. Import alarm variables from the LogicLab project.
b. In the "Alarms" section, create a new entry where you can define a new alarm and associate the variable of interest.
c. Create an Alarm threshold for activation.
d. Repeat this operation for all alarms to be supervised.
e. Insert an "Alarm Window" on screen.
f. There are three buttons on the screen to simulate alarms. The buttons command ON/OFF to the Boolean variable associated with the alarm.
g. Download the application to the terminal.

9.This video tutorial describes how to activate the language management within Movicon and its language change commands.

a. Prepare a screen by inserting three objects of figurative type that represent the language of interest. Commands will be associated to the single object to change language.
b. Edit Movicon's "String Table" by entering columns for each language you want to use, each column must be identified with a unique ID (ITA, ENG, etc...).
c. Insert a text string to be used on screen and insert the various translations for each column.
d. Save the string table and open the screen.
e. Select the screen object and associate the previously created string containing the appropriate text and translations.
f. Repeat the step to assign all the strings created to each screen object that needs to change language.
g. Select the language object and associate it with click event. The command will activate the column of the selected language. All screen objects that have been associated to string table will display text related to the activated column.

10. This video tutorial describes how to create users associated with different user groups each with their own access level. It shows how to associate an access level to an object in the screen and prepares an ad hoc screen for entering the user and password when required.

a. Set up four screens: the first for the Home Page, the second for free access (Free_Page), a third for password access (Reserved_Page) and a fourth to customize password entry (Psw_page). The object used for inserting the User and Password is found in the "Symbols Library" section "Utilities".
b. Define the screen for entering the user and password.
c. Create a "New User Group" with "Access Level 1".
e. Create a user in that group. The user acquires the group access level if not specified.
f. Enable the check on "Password Manager" from "Users and User Groups". If not enabled Movicon will not manage access in Runtime.
g. On the Home Page, associate Access Level 1 with an object used for page change. In the Runtime phase Movicon will ask for the insertion of a user and password. To be enabled, the user must be part of the group with the level required by the object (in this case Level 1).
h. As you can see from the video when you press the Movicon button, it shows the custom screen defined in point B.

11.This tutorial video describes how to create a Movicon Recipe using an existing LogicLab application

Following this tutorial, Movicon will automatically create a screen containing all the graphic controls and objects that the selected recipe needs. All the graphic objects will be already linked to the recipe's variables and the operating commands, leaving you nothing else to do but run the project. The wizard will create a screen with the following components:
1 combo-box to which the "Recipe Index" temporary variable and the "Recipe List" variable will be associated. If the "Recipe List" variable and "Recipe Index" temporary variable have not yet been created and associated to the Recipe, Movicon will create them in the RealTimeDB and then associate them automatically to both the screen's Recipe and combo-box object.
1 editable display for each one of the recipe fields to which will also be associated a temporary variable. If temporary variables have not yet been created and associated to the Recipe, Movicon will create them in the RealTimeDB and associate them automatically to both the screen's Recipe and displays.
1 "Activate" button for activating the selected Recipe.
1 "Save" button for saving the selected Recipe.
1 "Delete" button for deleting the selected Recipe.
1 "Read" button for loading field values in the selected Recipe's temporary variables.
1 "Export" button for exporting the selected Recipe values in csv files.
1 "Import" button for importing values from csv file to the selected Recipe's temporary variables.

a. For the purpose of this example, a simple LogicLab project was created with three "integer" variables. The Movicon recipe will change the value of those three variables (VAR_001, VAR_002, VAR_003). The project must be already completed and downloaded to the target.
b. Import the PLC variables to Movicon.
c. Create a String variable for the Recipe Index.
d. Create a string buffer variable for the recipe index value. (Index_temp)
e. Save your project and create a new recipe.
f. Enter three columns to associate to LogicLab variables for the recipe.
g. Associate the variables previously created in Movicon (Index and Index_tmp) to the Recipe Index.
h. Associate the LogicLab variable for the recipe to each column.
i. Select the recipe you just created. Right-click and select "Create Recipe Screen". Movicon will create an appropriate screen and temporary variables for viewing and activating the recipe in the field.
l. Save and Download to the target.
m. Note the possibility to read directly the values of the variables from the PLC to create a new recipe.

12. This video tutorial describes how to disable the focus on screen objects and enable full-screen mode.

a. Select the "Select all" item from the "Edit" menu.
c. Uncheck the "Show Focus", "Show Hilitle" and "Selectable with TAB" from the property window.
d. Click on the project name and disable from the project properties "Show Status Bar" and "Show Output Window". Enable "Start from full screen" and "Hide taskbar" instead.
c. Save the project and start it with the new settings.
13.This video tutorial shows you how to configure the PL500 expansion modules and how to use the watch window to debug your application.

14.This video tutorial shows the configuration of an MCM260X-9AD with TD710 HMI panel. The application was developed with the Pixsys LogicLab development tool and Movicon 11 graphical interface.
