  1. 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.  
  2. >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.    
  3. 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.
  4. 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.      
  5. 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?  
  6. 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.    
  7. 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.    
  8. PLC and Visual Basic

    Hello, What help do you need? Do you have the protocol specification? Where, exactly, are you having trouble?
  9. Ignition - any review?

    You are replying to a two year old post. Are you affiliated with Inductive Automation?
  10. Mitsubishi Melsec communication protocol

    OK, I think I understand. From your questions, you do not want help with some part of the protocol, you want the source code for a full implementation of the protocol. Not sure why it took me so long to figure that out. I cannot give you our full implementation. I could provide help with specific protocol questions. I have never seen a full implementation of this protocol published. But, I never searched for one.  
  11. Mitsubishi Melsec communication protocol

    Supporting a protocol is not accomplished with a few lines of code. What specifically are you seeking? How to format a request? How to parse a response? How to address? How to???

    It might help to state what language you want the "sample" source code.  
  13. Run time free production .NET AB Logix library

    Maybe AdvancedHMI code will work for you.  
  14. Scada software extensions?

    That is not what I read in your initial post or subsequent post. The question seems to be what graphic file format a SCADA/HMI can import/export. BMP, PNG, JPG, JPEG, GIF, WMF, EMF are common. You would need to verify with each SCADA/HMI application as to what graphic file formats it can process, which is different from " the configurations of the systems." Frequently a file is imported and then saved in whatever database/file the program uses. That means the SCADA/HMI may or may not save the imported graphic image in the same format as it was imported. As to export that also varies. Most SCADA/HMI graphic screens are not standard static file formats. The graphics are altered when the SCADA/HMI is monitoring the system. So a JPG might be used for the background but, the JPG is not altered to display dynamic data. The changing graphic are, generally, rendered on the screen/window using direct calls to the OS.  
  15. Scada software extensions?

    Any program can create/save to any extension it chooses. In other words the extension has no importance. It could be saved in any file name extension you can create. I am unsure why you think the file extension has any relevance. A file extension is a device to allow programs some measure of predicting the file data format but, the extension does not guarantee the file format. Most SCADA/HMI program choose different file name extensions for different files, depending on the content. If you think all SCADA/HMI use the same file name extension, that is not correct. There is no common data file format or file name extensions for SCADA/HMI applications.
