  1. if you generate a virtual machine, you can reinstall it on there for another 21 days Note! you can only upload the screens and data from the HMI if the project source code was downloaded with the runtime files. The runtime files are compiled and not editable. Steve
  2. panel meter

    I think you are getting confused with the preview function, this is not a simulation only a graphical overview of your screen. That said, you can click on the panel meter graphic and modify the displayed value, but it will not dynamically follow your numeric input. To have it dynamically change the panel meter graphic in line with your numeric input you need to simulate it, which if installed will be accessable under the 'tools' dropdown. Steve  
  3. Overlap Window Title

    You need to right click on the 'Windows Screen' not the 'New' and use the 'Window Dialog Wizard' to generate a new window.   Steve
  4. GX Developer

    I believe GxDeveloper is an outdated software for Mitsubishi PLC's, though it will run a large majority of the older processors, the current software would be GXWorks, this is what is required for your processor.   Steve
  5. you can generate your own oneshots, something like these,     Steve  
  6. Problems opening a file in studio5000

    RSlogix5000 and studio5000 are revision specific, it depends on what the program revision is as to what revision of studio5000 you need installed on your PC For example if the program is written in version 20 then you need version 20 installed on your PC to open it, even if you have a later version installed, say version30 it still won't open it, it has to be version 20 Steve

  9. 1747-SN relates programming question

    I'm not sure about the *QMS part but the S:15 is split into low byte and high byte where the low byte contains the NODE number of the Processor and the high byte contains the baud rate of the com port, is the QMS a symbol for a memory store? Steve
  10. Controlling Cylinder Stroke Length

    Welcome, You will find it almost impossible to control a driven rod cylinder, you would require a rodless cylinder which can be controlled, with feedback given by simple reed switches mounted at the controlled stop positions. Rodless cylinder Steve
  11. Why (U) an OTE?

    This sometimes is intentional, a quick example would be when a HMI or SCADA system writes directly to a PLC's data table (eg turning on an output), then the PLC turns this output off by unlatching (U) the output when a particular condition is met, this could be multiple conditions, hence the multiple (U)'s. Maybe a little untidy but sometimes unavoidable for the sake of clarity. Steve
  12. Error Clearing FX2n48MT

    its been a while since I used a FX2N but I think the error led is actually two leds side by side if the righthand one is lit then its a program error, if both lit its a CPU error. Either way the special registers D8060 to D8069 should indicate an error code, with the corresponding M registers M8060 to M8069 set to indicate the D register. To clear the PLC completely remove any memory cassette, remove the battery turn off the PLC and leave for 30 secs, Replace the battery, turn on the  PLC and switch to run. As I said its been a long time . Steve
