  1. Every time my rsview32 project starts up all the alarms which are set up to alarm on 0 tag value show up on the screen even though the bit in the PLC is not in alarm condition. I believe this is because the communication between RSView32 and PLCs is not established yet and the tags are seen as having value of 0 in the HMI. Is there a way to disable or suppress these tags at startup to give enough time for the RSView to update the values so the false alarms are not being displayed?
  2. I'm currently working with a RSview32 v7.50 program running on Windows XP. I need to install Windows 7 32-bit on the computer and only v7.60 works with Windows 7. Is it possible to upgrade from v7.50 to v7.60, or will v7.60 still run a v7.50 program on Windows 7? Would upgrading to FTviewSE be easier? Thanks for any help

  4. RsView Studio Tags problem !

    Hello everyone ! The plant where i work uses allen bradley CompactLogix 5000 controllers. It has three controllers, each one controlling a seperate production line. So my superior asked me to add a functionnality to the existing program, and after a little research, i found that it is better to edit the program in "Online Mode", and that's what i did. After that, i wanted to associate the new tags i created with some views in RsView Studio, but i cannot find any tags in the online folder associated to the controller, even though the connection shortcut is set and is working, and the online folders of the other two controllers contain all their tags ! Any suggestions please ?
  5. Print labels from RSView32

    Hi experts, I am new in in RSView and start to learning, Anyway, I want to create bar-code in RSView and send it to zebra printer via network. Can I do with VB Scripts or do I need any other application? I need your help to make this happen. Your kind help will be highly appreciated! Thank you.
  6. Hello, For years we had a silo, that was bought from a 3rd party, with a control system that works ( has a fast input and plc scan time ), but has incredible slow feedback to SCADA. Since the silo is off site, often closed or in full operation it's been hard to get the time window to really work on this and get to know the alternative setup. Now lately there is a bit of room to work on it but the history around the issue is vague and the knowledge surrounding rsview and rslinx enterprise is limited, so I'd hope you guys would know a bit more about it after my explanation. So I can narrow down the bottlenecks better at the next visit. Current Setup: PLC: SLC 5/05 16 CPU with ETHERNET Connection with an 747 - SN/B I/O Scanner for field Connected w/ switch to 2 PC's by Glass fiber The PC's used to be in a master slave setup for Rsview, with added engineering stations for the programming. But have been replaced to two new identical PC's. Whether or not this caused the problem is still vague. These PC's both have RsLInx for Rsview version 2.43.01.23 (PR6) RsView Enterprise and RsView Kepware ( for RsLinx Enterprise in Rsview Studio ) The only addition they have from the old setup is that they also have a logix500 programming added to it. In the screens.zip are some screenshots for the setup. I had limited time. But if you make suggestions on where to look next I might be able to get more. I thought it was weird that the Ethernet setting for the SLC5 CPU seemed to be locked at 10 mbs half duplex. But since the installation was in operation I could not change it. So I need to be sure that it has some importance, before I can shut down the plc for download. Problem: When an operator controls the silo, his input starts straight away. Open a valve or start a dust blower will immediately result in a reaction in the silo. However in the viewer, it will take 5+ seconds to actually get the feedback. This is not only for I/O but also internal bits like setting a motor block from manual to auto will take long to read out. Though the PLC scan time is only 10-20 ms and doesn't have that many crucial parts, the installation works fine. But there have been moments where crucial parts didn't seem to start on screen, while already running in the silo, causing danger in communication. Since it's a small setup I don't see where the lag is coming from. And the network and card seem fine. My question: What is most likely to be the cause of theses communication problems? So I can have a plan of "attack", next visit at the silo. Thanks in advance, Migel Screens.zip
  7. RSVIEW 32

    I am facing a problem. I have a panel mate system. It is DOS based system. How I can take the HMI backup from this panel mate? and how can I transfer panel mate to RSVIEW32 environment? I s there is any transfer protocol? or I shall configure all the tags by my-self? Regards
