    Siemens do have built in memory bits that allow you to do just what you are wanting. Called clock bits.

    On basic ones yes, others can give an analogue signal dependent on how hard it is depressed, via a strain gauge or linear pot.
  3. Can someone please help me finding this tag?

    Click on the tag within the interface box at the top of the screen.  Press Ctrl+Shift+F.  This will take you to the first place it is used in the routine, press again for the next and so on. Ctrl+Shift+B will take you backward through the routine.

    Right click on the DB.   Choose properties.    Click on optimized block access.    It will change the DB structure to absolute rather than symbolic.

    Have you tuned optimised access off for the DB you are reading/writing to?
  6. Taking Screen shots

    On my laptop I just press  [FN]+[Print Screen] then past into paint or similar.  [FN]+[ALT]+[Print Screen] just screenshots the active window.   
  7. Just a point to add that I don't see mentioned here. These batteries do not recharge. Once they're dead they stay that way.

    Hmmm, I did one the other week straight from the USB.  New project to download and test, firmware was updated over the USB.

    I've found the USB ports on the newer processors to be a god send.  Shame they don't have similar on the remote I/O header modules yet.

    The new TIA V14 isn't all that bad, the SCADA/HMI package I find far more intuitive to use than rockwells ME/SE

    Hi Dan,  I've done it that way round in the past too.  Just a pain as I never had any issues with older versions. Seems someone at Rockwell likes introducing bugs.     
  13. Rockwell BootP DHCP Tool

    Hi all,  Having issues with the above.  It's seeing items MAC addresses, allows me to set required IP addresses but then will not let me service a disable dhcp command.  It's the newest version I think (V3.01.00) Running on win 7 if that makes a difference.  Not a huge issue as all I've been doing is using an older version on a different VM to set IP addresses. More an inconvenience. Just wondering if people have had similar issues, googling this version hasn't shed any light on the issue.

    Have you added the same tag in the HMI as well as the PLC?
