  1. HIMA SILWORX

    They offer three different license types; a student license was not among the three. I would contact them or the local rep for assistance in getting a license.
  2. HIMA SILWORX

    Thier website does not list a demo/evaluation version. It looks like they have a rep "Petrogas Systems Tunisie" in Tunisia
  3. Hello, There is the Mitsubishi Q TCP protocol. SH(NA)-080008  
  4. Interview Question

    Maybe I do not understand something. I see a couple of issues. The first: Rung 0, if the latch Motor_1 is not set the branch around what I assume is the start switch will set the latch. Perhaps I am all wet.  
  5. That is from left field and has nothing to do with my comments. (Seems to be a bit of projection.)
  6. Yeah, I can read. It would not be the first post to be misleading on the web. Clicking on the link has "pricing" right at the top of the page, the third word I see. Selecting pricing has pricing for what appears to be a "slave simulator". Next to it has "Community Edition". OK, that name is frequently used for free. Click it and see this text: "It's Free for Non-Commercial Use" "20-Minute Session Limit" "No Support" Different ideas of "free". OK, continue see "MODBUS Simulator", click on it and read "The Best Modbus RTU/TCP Slave Simulator". Wait really. Oh I see an unbiased opinion. :) Now we are back to the starting page. But wait again. So two products, both are MODBUS programs, both use the same "easy" text configuration, one acts as an HTTP server connecting to "slaves" and one is a slave simulator with only text display and both state free. I see how there is no confusion.  
  7. Why would anyone pay for this product when numerous free MODBUS slave simulators exist? From my viewpoint, editing a text file to change configuration is not "ease of setup".    
  8. VB "Dim" not compiling

      Without ALL the code, who knows. Maybe you defined "I" somewhere else.  
  9. Hello, I think you will have better luck asking this question on the DNP3 forum. Of all my DNP3 specification reading, I do not recall reading anything about redundant outstations, only redundant masters.  
  10. >if you have any feature requests "Mark site read" is set when I leave the site. Is it supported and I missed it in the account settings? Most, not all of the forums I read/post on, mark all post as read when I leave.    
  11. Because Per Diem is a crap shoot. If I can find lodging/food/etc. for the Per Diem rate. OK. But what about when it cost me more to be where the company asked me to go. It is convention season in the city/town on a weekend and all hotel rooms are 75% more than normal. I lose out. That might sound like the exception but, it is not. Just pay my expenses, I will turn in receipts.
  12. For me, had I been seeking employment, there are three items on the list that would have prevented me from applying. >Two weeks a year PTO time. This encompasses any time off vacation, sick, personal, etc... (+1 week after 5 years) >Salary pay based on 40 hours (no OT) >Per Diem for overnight travel paid at Federal Rate by location The first one is a "benefit" (rather strict) and the other two are not benefits. The last two really are unattractive. My2c.      
  13. Very hard to quantify, IMHO. It really depends on the level of need, of both parties. No job, the benefits look fine until I find something better. Have a job, stop reading the listing. But again, that is based on abilities and pay. Are you having difficulty hiring/retaining folks with the benefits listed?  
  14. Revert to home page

    The most common user activity monitoring in a modern OS is mouse movement. The second most common is key strokes. Our HMI has a "User Inactivity" configuration that can be configure to take an action after X amount of inactivity. Maybe CX has such a feature.    
  15. You do not say what the salary is so it is really hard to determine a good offer based only on the "benefits." Benefits and salary should be negotiable unless you need people possessing all the same skill set. My2c.
