  1. 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. 
  2. UL 508A specifically covers control panels built for sale in the US.
  3. Rockwell BootP DHCP Tool

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

    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
  6. Rockwell BootP DHCP Tool

    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.     
  7. 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.
  8. Factory Talk view ME and SE

    ME - Used for HMIs SE - SCADA applications
  9. TIA Portal HMI Button Not working

    Have you added the same tag in the HMI as well as the PLC? 
  10. American terminology MCC build.

    For anyone also looking for this. UL Document 845 covers it. 
  11. We have had an enquiry from a customer in Atlanta GA. They require what we would describe as a Form 4 MCC. (A panel with individual compartments for each motor starter). I’m unsure of the American terminology for Form 4, so googling information is proving difficult. I was wondering if anyone can point me to any regulations these may fall under outside of UL508, I’m currently at tendering side and don’t want to fall foul. We do design and build quite a lot of Form 2 panels for sale in the US, so knowledge of the circuit design isn't an issue. I know in the UK that form 4 has a different set of rules around it. 
  12. The pics aren't compatible with anything newer than XP SP2, confirmed by rockwell.  I have had them working with a serial to USB adapter but it was hit an miss on what brand worked and didn't. 
  13. Address not occupied by a tag - TIA

    I haven't found one myself, was hoping someone had stumbled across one. 
  14. Monitor alarm block

    What populates the bits of MW100? Why are you trying to convert it from a BCD to an integer?
  15. Address not occupied by a tag - TIA

    Yes Step 7 classic relied more on direct addressing rather than tag based addressing like TIA.  I had thought about doing that, was just wondering if I had missed something glaringly obvious. TIA seems to have that many tick box's hidden here there and everywhere.
