  1. Data monitoring

    Thank you I'm going to stick to the basics for the moment, that's all I can do with my limited knowlegde. Also I don't have a router or a server to connect my controller or NA to, so I cannot opt to many of these methods. I was hoping for a way to convert somehow that csv to a readable file (currently it's just a column with all the data) via any function by either controller or NA and also display it somehow on a NA page. Anyways I suppose I need to check some tutorials about all this matter.
  2. Newline / Carry Return

    Things I tried with an error as result: "line1" & vbCrLf & "line2" "line1" + vbCrLf + "line2" "line1" & ch(13) & "line2" "line1" + ch(13) + "line2" I found the correct property to add so for those looking for the same the code would be: anyStringVariable = "This is Line 1" & Environment.NewLine & "This is Line 2"  
  3. Newline / Carry Return

    Sorry, maybe I didn't explain it correctly. newline is not a variable. What I want to do is insert a carry return so I can visualize two lines, on the first one with "hello" and the second one "how are you" as an example. Showing it later on a DataDisplay with multiple lines. I need to know if there is a special character available in VB .net on sysmac studio.
  4. Data monitoring

    Alright, but how? What technologies can I implement to do this? Is SCADA compatible with my already programmed HMI pages? Does the generated CSV via NA USB offer any solution like import the info into a Database? Or is more recommended to use function blocks on NJ to send the data I want via some communication protocol? Like send it to a server? Thank you
  5. Hi I'm a bit lost here. I work with Sysmac studio with a NJ101 Controller along with a NA5 HMI. I show a page with a trendGraph some of the variables values (turned into %) in real time that come as inputs from the NX-Units. Also save this data trace into a USB connected to the NA so it turns into a csv. And that's it. But this does not give me a solution. I don't know if there's better ways for this. This seems not even a first step for a solid client side professional software. So, I need some help here. I read somewhere I can also monitorize with function blocks on ladder and then later save the data on a SDCard and then later send that data to a server?. But I want to keep the visual page so I have to use a trendGraph and somehow connect both sides (controller and hmi) What kind of solutions can Omron offer regarding Data Monitoring. I don't want to stop on having just a USB with a csv. file that a client has no idea on how to process that data. What are some examples of a good Data tracing system with sysmac studio? Thank in advance
  6. Hi It is possible to specify a newline on a vb page on a NA Series Page? Sub subroutine Dim var as string var = "Hello" + (insert newline) + "How are you?" End sub Edit: forgot to specify that the variable is Global (so no DIm...) and later used as a expression for a dataDisplay control. Thank you in advance
  7. Sysmac Studio Improvement Request

    My suggestion is to enable TrendGraph visualization in simulation mode of NA
  8. Resources

    Hello Any way I can check which resources are being used on page elements / alarms / etc. and which not? I feel like my project is getting slower to load because of the thousands of strings I have in resources but probably using 30% of them. Any method for fast cleaning? If I go one by one checking if it's being used... pff... I would prefer to delete all and rewrite all strings... both methods looks too tedious for big projects... Ideas? Any other reasons why my project loads are so slow? (got more than 50 pages, recipes... alarms) Or any way to release the project file size? Thank you.
  9. Thank you for the link and sorry for a repeated post.
  10. Hi I was wondering if it's possible to connect two NJ controllers (using Sysmac Studio) through a W4S1 Ethernet port switch so I could monitorize variables by using one as slave which could visualize a certain number of variables from the master. I'm checking W506-E1-15 NJ_NX-series CPU Unit Built-in EtherNetIP Port User's Manual but I can't anything for the moment. Thank you
  11. Hi I'm not versed in code (ST or VB) with timers, I work on a NJ101-9000 and a NA5 as interface with Sysmac studio. I just need a counter that goes on whenever a bit is true (work on) and goes off when bit is false. The counter would show working Hours and Minutes on a Display control on HMI. Also store the counter variable with Retain attribute on the NJ101 memory and reset whenever desired. Thanks in advance   Made it quite simple almost all on ladder diagram.
  12. Using structures in NA5

    Hola No he profundizado en tu problema. Pero yo he tenido un problema, sino igual, similar el cual no me permitia asignar variables del controlador en una receta. Lo que hice es crear una estructura idéntica en el hmi que funcione de puente entre las recetas y la structura del controlador. Lo que yo hacia en el codigo vb de las paginas era un metodo "AssignFrom" para pasar los valores de una estructura a otra siempre que el nombre de las variables en ambas estructuras fuesen los mismos. Suerte   PD: I hope it's ok for the admins if I write in spanish since he seems to be from Spain too. I can translate to english If necessary.
  13. As far as I know, no... unless you specify the value on the "message" for each alarm. Or you could create your own alarm popup.
  14. Short question: Can I somehow export one proyect image resources from a HMI NA5 to a system folder or another proyect? If so... how?   Edit: Woops made it by just copy-paste-ing from one project to another, but be sure to match the language and language order on settings.
  15. Hi, newbie question... on a NA5 HMI on sysmac studio... Can I declare a Global Variable through a Page subroutine or a Global subroutine? If so, how? Theres no such thing as: Public myVar as Integer Is it? Yes, I know I can use Global Variables window on Data. It is just curiosity...
