  1. I have set up a timer in exostructure expert basic and am trying to get the contdown value from the preset of 20 to show in vijeo designer but it tells me the %tm0.v is read only and cant find the variable in Vijeo designer to show it. Does anyone know how to do this?  
  2. I am attempting to download a Vijeo designer application to a remotely situated Magelis HMI over the cloud by means of a VPN. Vijeo designer's built-in help indicates that this is possible and has provided an example.  BTW, I am using Vijeo Designer basic v1.1 & the HMI model is GXU3512.   However, I find the fields for router IP and TCP port nos. all deactivated. How to get pass this roadblock? I'll appreciate any suggestions.   Thanks a million

  4. Hello Everyone, I am working on reports in Vijeo Citect V7.40. I want to generate a report whenever I press the button. I am able to generate it according to date like making a Cicode file and adding the form, whenever I press the button form will open to give me the option to select the date. Similarly, I am trying to make a form for a time also. Can someone guide me on how to do this? STRING sdate,edate,Em,D,M,Y;              D = DateDay(TimeCurrent());          M = DateMonth(TimeCurrent());          Y = DateYear(TimeCurrent(),1);              sdate= "Start Date";         edate= "End Date";         INT hChannel_M;                  FormNew("Select Report date..",38,2,16);         FormInput(20,0,"DD-MM-YYYY Format",Em,20);                           D = DateDay(TimeCurrent());          M = DateMonth(TimeCurrent());          Y = DateYear(TimeCurrent(),1);                   FormComboBox(2 ,0, 15, 6, sDate, 1);         FormAddList(D + "-" + M + "-" + Y);                     FormButton(8 ,1 ,"Select",0, 1);         FormButton(16 ,1 ,"Cancel",0, 2);         FormRead(0);                  STRING START_DATE_TIME         D = DateDay(StrToDate(sdate));  //DateAdd Will convert only when the date is in System Date Format          M = DateMonth(StrToDate(sdate));          Y = DateYear(StrToDate(sdate),1);         START_DATE_TIME = Y + "-" + M + "-" + D;                       STRING END_DATE_TIME             D = DateDay(DateAdd(StrToDate(sdate),86400));  //DateAdd Will convert only when the date is in System Date Format          M = DateMonth(DateAdd(StrToDate(sdate),86400));          Y = DateYear(DateAdd(StrToDate(sdate),86400),1);                  END_DATE_TIME =  Y + "-" + M + "-" + D;                                  VbCallRun(VbCallOpen("GetRep", START_DATE_TIME, END_DATE_TIME)); This is my code for date selection.
  5. Vijeo Citect #com error

     I am facing a problem in Citect.After running the Citect project. Network connectivity, communication with SCADA and RTU are the same. kindly help me to resolve his error.
  6. Hi there! I'm trying to communicate HMIS5T HMI with a Modicon Micro TSX3722001 PLC. The communication is OK, but whenever I try to enter some data into a numeric display I get an error that says "Method or function in Communications System unsupported" and data won't change on PLC's Animation Table. Also, if I modify a variable's value in PL7 Pro, the value in the HMI numeric display won't change properly. It displays the last digit of the binary format of the number (let's say I write a "3" on PL7 Pro, then I get a "1" on the numeric display, despite all data types being UINT, and all ranges are OK. Then if I write any number which binary version ends in 0, I get that 0 on the numeric display, nothing else. Again, all data types and ranges are OK). Changing variables' source on Vijeo Designer to Internal doesn't seem to work. So I'm wondering what else must I do in order to send and receive data from/to HMI and PLC?    Thanks in advance and I hope you can help me! Update: Got this solved. For anyone wondering, Vijeo Designer 6.2 SP8 it's kinda buggy with Unitelway communication. There's a hotfix that solves this problem, provided free by Schneider.
  7. Hi ya,  can someone please advise if it is possible to add a text box that the user can enter a name / description to.  I am hoping the user can select the text box and a pop up keyboard will appear for them to enter a description on a magelis hmi.  I look forward to your advise. 
  8. Hi guys, I installed new MachineExpert v1.2 and Vijeo 6.2.9 on Win10 machine. When connecting simulation PLC to Vijeo to test my application everything is good. I go to PLC and check the nodename (see the pic attached) which I put in my Vijeo application and everything works. Issue is, because of my hard drive capacity I am forced to work via VM (but this is my preffered way also because of number of PLC softwares used). When I installed from the same installer (everything same as my local Win10) on Win7 VM when I run simulation I get empty space where the PC simulator should be visible which nodename I should type in Vijeo. Also I noticed when going to gateway management console in VM the process is active, same parameters as in host machine. Turning off the gateway on the VM turns it off as well on the host. Is there a known problem of connecting to simulator on VM? Or win10? Unfortunately I don't have Win10 VM to try right now.. Anyone can help? Much appreciated!
  9. Hello. I am trying to make a serial RS 232C connection between Schneider Magelis HMIGXU3512 and Omron PLC CP1E. However, there seems to be a communication problems between both of the equipment. I am using cable XBT Z9740 for the serial communication cable. The format used is 8.2.N for both equipment. The baud rate is 115200. No Flow Rate is choose. Anyone can help with this kind of problems?
  10. Hi, I've been having a problem with my Schneider setup, and I can't seem to figure out the problem. I'm using Machine Expert Logic Builder and Vijeo 6.2, and I can't seem to download to my PLC. I can download to my HMI just fine, but my HMI comes back with the message as mentioned in the title. Also when I perform a full download, machine expert comes up with the message "Could not connect to the device for item "xx", selected target system "PLC name" is different from the connected device "HMI name". The weirdest thing is that machine expert shows my PLC just fine, but doesn't show my HMI. I have no idea what to do, as I feel like I've tried everything. The IP range is fine, subnet is fine. The driver in IO manager in Vijeo has the PLC nodename in it, so that shouldn't be the problem either. Does anyone know what to do in a situation like this? Thank you in advance!

  15. Hi my dear colleagues, I tried to configure data location for the text file used with text display. It works if loaded to main drive. But, if I point to secondary or optional drive the system doesn't even allow me to download the program to HMI. Error 1850..secondary drive not found. I noticed in the property inspector, that the windows for Secondary and Optional drive are grey. The Vijeo Designer V6.2 and HMIG3U with three USB ports (one mini and 2 usual) and one SD port are used.  May be, they are all disabled somewhere, with a hardware switch? But, even if the windows were active, I have no idea, what to put into them, to configure SD or USB as secondary or optional drive. Please, help. regards, Waldemar
  16. Hi, I am new to Vijeo. The task is to show different messages on HMI screen (I use Vijeo designer V6.2.5 and Magelis HMIG3U).  A new string variable "ToDoTxt" was created as an Array with dimension 2048. A StringDisplay was put on the screen and ToDoTxt[0] was chosen. How can I show other 2047 values, which depend on value of another integer variable "StepNumber"?
  17. I have a program that I as building in SoMachine V4.3 and Vijeo Designer 6.2. Everything is coming together well at this point but I can't seem to figure out if I can put a poteniometer type object on the HMI using Vijeo Designer. This will be used to control the speeds of some VFD that are connected to the PLC. I have found ways to use a meter or simple numeric input it change the WORD that controls the drive speed. I would really like to use a knob or slider bar as I believe it would be a nice function. I've tried it on two different Magelis screens that I will be using for two different projects. One is a HMISCU8A5(controller and HMI in one unit) and the other is a HMIGTO3510.   Thank You
  18. i'm working with vijeo designer and i have a problem with popup windows. I'm trying to make a popup window appear with a variable. A bool to be exact. I want that a popup window appears when the bool becomes 1. But so far i haven't found a way to do that. Can someone help how I could do that? It's the meaning that that bool becomes 1 when there is an error and that the popup window appears then to let the user know there is an error. Or does annyone have a better idea?
  19. Hello, We have this SCADA system Vijeo Citect 7.2 running in Windows 7. Primarily used as generator's alarm history & monitoring.

  23. Hello, I am responsible for implementation of Vijeo Citect 7.4 SCADA in my company. I want to connect to Beckhoff PLCs by using Twincat OPC Server. I can control and observe the variables through OPC Control tool, but when I add the device and variables to my Citect aplication, they are always equal zero. I cannot also force through Citect to change the value. I don't know where the problem lies. If you need additional information, please ask me. I will provide you with all the data I have. Thank you in advance. beckhoff_opc.bmp
  24. Hello there. I have connected wireless module (master) to Vijeo Citect 7.4 using RS-485 to USB converter. My slave modules are supplied power from gird/generator and the master module is supplies from a UPS.    I'm reading Modbus registers of slaves modules data via wireless master. Every time we have a power failure from grid, I get #BAD from all slave addresses. The generator kicks off within 30 sec. That is the slaves are off for 30 sec. Even after the slaves are powered on, SCADA does not poll data from it until I restart the SCADA.    My current MODBUS parameters are:   Inittype = 3, TimeOut = 3000, WatchTime = 10, Retry = 2. Could you please assist me on which parameters to change in .ini so that SCADA reads Modbus registers of slave for more than 30 sec.   I tried increasing TimeOut to 30000 but it couldn't solve the problem. I would appreciate if some one could help me out.   Thanak you in advance.
