  1. Ok my bad then. Machine expert is the latest version of somachine so I thought the same would apply but they obviously incorporated this hmi into it. Its just that in my stand alone vijeo designer I cant get that model.....anyways will dig around a bit more
  2. I dont understand how you can use vijeo designer for a HMIG3U. I thought you can only use Vijeo XD or Ecostructure Opertator terminal expert for that type of screen As stated in this Schneider FAQ Can SoMachine controller communicate to a HMI program with Vijeo XD V3.0 Published date: 15 November 2018   Issue: How do I setup communication between the Controller and HMI and link the variables. Product Line: M238, M241, M251, M258  HMIGTO, HMIG3U Environment: SoMachine V4.3 Vijeo XD 3.0 Resolution: Vijeo XD V3.0 is not integrated with SoMachine V4.3 You have to create a separate SoMachine application for the M251 controller and a separate Vijeo XD V3.0 application for the Magelis HMI. In Vijeo XD, use the SoMachine Network driver under Schneider Electric.  Copy the Node name from the SoMachine application. Create a symbol link and browse for the application name XML file to import the tags from SoMachine to Vijeo XD.  This file is created during a download in SoMachine.
  3. Configure Modbus

    Normal Modbus Rs485 is a serial communication and doesn't use IP addresses. You will use read and write_var function blocks to handle te communication on the Unity side. Get the ATS48 modbus manual to see to which registers on the ATS48 you have to write to control and from which registers to read to get status and readings
  4. you need to change the time base of the timer to seconds. Then you must use operation blocks and do calculations to to convert to minutes and display that calculated value
  5. You should be able to use the read_var function block to read variables from the different meters Have a look at the following thread
  6. I have succesfully connected with node red to a m340 using the node red modbus tcp/ip library. This should work for any modbus tcp/ip device so hopefully your m241 has a ethernet port then this can be done via node red as the node red can handle the mqtt
  7. Try this   Above will move %mw100 to %mw109 into %mw200 to %mw209
  8. As I mentioned in previous topic that you also queried on, just move the analog input value into a %mw and read it from there. Not all software allows you to read directly the digital io or analog io
  9. The easiest way I would do it is by using a remote connection device like secomea site manager or ewon. These devices can connect via sim card or ethernet and it will save you a lot of headaches
  10. It depends on which of the ports on the cpu you are connecting to.  But normally tcp uses port 502
  11. This is not the vijeo designer software. This is data manager which is used to upload or download logged data.  As mentioned before if the include editor project was not selected when the program was downloaded then the program cannot be uploaded
  12. With what are you trying to connect to plc? Usb or some other protocol? You say that the cpu is ready with no faults? If the program was missing then there would be quite a few errors
  13. Hi Amr Then i must apologize. I didnt know this plc was programmed by somachine. I have not used the gateway myself but I have seen videos regarding this This is a good video showing the setup procedure
  14. The sql gateway is for somachine (codesys) plc's so it wont work for you Kepware certainly has modbus drivers. All schneider plcs support modbus serial and/or modbus tcp/ip And lastly dont ask how to crack software etc on this forum please
