  1. According to hwat i know this is not possible. The closest thing you will get to a slider is using a horizontal,vertical or circular selector switch with certain amount of steps in it that will increment or decrement  the value on touch
  2. not sure if it will work in vdos. Need to have windows95 or 98 installed on a virtual machine the use that dos
  3. I normally write the inputs and outputs to %MW or %M. Then you shouldnt have a problem. Not all modbus softwares allow all the modbus functions. But most should allow reading x3 and x4 which will be %mw and %m
  4. Error OBs

    I Also dont know Siemens. What is an OB?  
  5. Well with usb you have to wait for the driver to load after plugging in cable. It takes a few seconds. You should see a icon popup on the bottom right of windows when usb driver is ready
  6. Have never compared with time values but shouldnt your if say if t_delay<=t#0s then t_delay:=t#3s    
  7. Remote I/O Choices

    I use Weidmuller Remote IO. Havent had any issues so far.  (Called U-remote) Have also seen a lot of the Turck BL20 in OEM machine which also havent given any issues in a long time
  8. Refer to my post. You need to mount the iso file on a virtual drive. Otherwise it wont work
  9. Would use a m340 plc with a NOC card (for the EIP portion) . Hmi you can use HMIstu (small and cheap) or if you need bigger screens then GTO series from Schneider
  10. You will have to read up on serial communication (ascii). Check the somachine pdf manuals for serial communication. I have done this successfully a few years back. Will find program and post screenshots 
  12. Here is a link to the manual for this
  13. How long is the string that you are using?  Can you maybe give us the actual string value
  14. Hi Tony What driver are you using?I suspect its modbus. Open the device (plc) comms settings in the IO manager  in Vijeo Designer. Change the double word order to the other option
