  1. Passwords in Runtime

    Hi I'm looking for a little bit of help. I have a WinCC HMI which will not let me log on with one of the passwords. The general logon and admin both work fine. The Engineer password doesn't work (no display at the top of the screen where the other user names are displayed). There is no warning that the password is in correct or the account locked out (missed in the original programing I think). I have all the project files however I'm using a runtime licence. I would like to log in as admin open the project and clear the password lockout. The issue I have is that I have to use TIA portal and it will not show the project file, is this due to the fact that I have a runtime licence. Is there another way to see if the user name is locked and removed. Like I said I have the admin password which works.   Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. Kind Regards

  3. Hi guys I am trying to connect a Mitsubishi FX5U PLC to a Siemens WinCC RT Advanced. I did find a document on the Siemens side on how to configure the HMI, but I can't seem to find any instructions on how to configure it on the Mitsubishi side. Any help, sample will be appreciated.   Kind Regards Morne
  4. Deleting Alarm Logs Wincc HMI

    Hi, how can I get rid of those alarms with status I(O) ? They are simply something like duplicates and they re making it hard to read the logs.
  5. Hi, I'm looking for a way to change the button graphic (From "non-pressed button" to "pressed button" which is much lighter) via script.  The main problem is that, the button has to change it's graphic whenever i change a bit in my PLC program, more accurately, I press button in Factory IO, not in HMI, that thing I've already made, so I've set up my button "is pressed" graphic. I've got my tags prepared correctly, and I'm trying to reach the property of the button with this script:   Do  If SmartTags("Variable_1") Is True Then     HmiRuntime.Screens("Screen_1").ScreenItems("Template_Button_2")  End If Loop Is it even proper way to do stuff like that? I THINK it'll work like, if Variable_1 (Bool %Q0.0 for e.g. in PLC program) is 1 Then ->  And when I'm at ScreenItems, i don't know which property should I choose next in order to change button graphic.   Hope you can help :)

  7. Regards! My problem is the following. I have a client that has 7 different machines with touch panels SIEMENS TP277. A touch panel for each machine. The machines are different and therefore the projects that have to be loaded from WINCC Flexible to each panel are different. That is, 7 different projects. My client wants to have a single spare screen, not 7. Is there any way that he has a single spare physical panel and without needing WINCC Flexible can he load the same one of the 7 projects? Can not you record inside the panel and then load 1 of the 7 you need? Or via USB memory? ZhankS!   zHANKS!                
  8. LOGO! 8 TIA portal WinCC

    Hi all experts, I am LOGO! 8 PLC programmer, and now I am beginning to start SCADA developement. I want to ask which software should I install ?, 1. TIA portal with Siemens SIMATIC STEP 7 Professional & WinCC Professional 15.1 x64 2. WinCC RT Professional 15.1 x64 3. STEP 7 Professional 14.0 4. SINAMICS Startdrive 14.0 5. WinCC RT Advanced v15 Please excuse me if my question is not OK as I am beginning scada developement I know nothing about it and I can get limited software through my college programme. I am confused too because I found that "Up from version 12 of WinCC the driver “LOGO” is available" and also "I think the Logo! communication driver is only available for a WinCC RT advanced , not professional."  in this post : unable-to-connect-tia-15-version-to-logo-8/185145 Please hep me so that I can learn SCADA developement with my LOGO8 Waiting for your fruitful reply, Thanks and Regards
  9. Optimized Blocks

    Hello everyone, Are there any alternatives to WinCC at the moment that can handle using optimized blocks. In most other SCADA software, while importing tags, the option to optimize blocks should not be selected as they cannot import in this format. Ignition by Inductive Automation has a driver that can be purchased to solve this problem. I wanted to know if there are some other solutions to this issue.  Thanks!
  10. Hi every body, the application i want to do is explain bellow: ((if i write in the IOFILED and the value existe in my database so a msg box will be shown that the value existe,else a msgbox will show that the value didn't existe.)) my problem is in the data entry. i have to press enter , but in reallity i want when the barcode is scanned so automatically the code will be executed. if the value change , I want that the msg will be automatically written without pressing enter.

  12. Tia Portal V14 Real time graph

    I current have 2 variable: Displacement vs Pressure. I need to draw a real time graph on Comfort Panel. The problem with using just f(x) trend is that the minimum time between updating a point is 0.5 sec and that is for ever in my application as the whole cycle last only 5 sec and I have to plot 500 points in that time. Is there a way to do real time graph using Historical data without any time delay. If anybody can guide me through any sample program or material would e helpful. Thanks
  13. In general, this control PLC program is written in GX Works. I did a simple visualization on TIA Portal v14 (WinCC RT Advanced) and I would like to now test it on Mitsubishi FX3U driver with ENET Module. I do not have much experience in this kind of thing, I'm still learning. I know that someone previously made a visualization in LabView and downloaded the tags from the PLC using NI OPC Server. Someone also did visualization in iFix and also downloaded tags through server opc. I do not know just how or what program to download tags in PLC so that I can no longer use it in visualization in TIA Portal. Unfortunately I still have a connection problem. The driver is connected to the router. From the connection options with RT Advanced I chose in the connections tab Mitsubishi and entered the appropriate IP. Still nothing. I do not know if the lack of a connection can be related to a virtual machine (VM Vare Workstation 12) on which I have TIA Portal installed. The driver pings but can not connect. I also tried using KEPServer EX to connect and unfortunately also failed. (I have information about the can not connect). Anyone know what program I should use? or had contact with such a problem? I attach a photo of communication from my station to more visualize the problem. Thanks

  16. Change Value of External Tags in WinCC 7.4

    Hi, Im trying to change the value of my external tag DB31, DW54. My plan is for the user to input the values in the I/O field and click a button to change the value of the external tag. My problem is I can only do it through left click event direct connection on the button but it can only change the value once. How do I do this dynamically in runtime?   Thanks,
  17. Hi all, I had 2 sets of Wincc HMI, 1 is v5 and another is v7.2. In this case, is it possible to configure "alarm broadcast" to both HMI PC between v5 and v7.2 ? Alarm broadcast I meant was the when alarm trigger from v7.2 it will appear at v5 HMI as well. and able to acknowledge too. If possible, any advice without additional software and hardware?

  20. I am working on a system with a siemens plc and HMI using TIA Portal V13 and WinCC. I wanted to remove to buttons from the HMI so the operator no longer has access to them. I removed them in the project (saved them on a temporary screen). When I uploaded the changes to the HMI, the buttons still exist. I also tried the simulator and I had the same results. Do I need to manually un-register the buttons somewhere? Also, I made a new screen and changed one of the screen change buttons to direct toward it. When testing it, a blank screen showed up instead of the screen that I directed it to. I have done a lot of plc/hmi programming in the past, but I have never experienced symptoms as such.  I am new to the Siemens world.  I have traditionally used AB products.   Are there a lot of nuances with WinCC that I am unaware of?
