Schneider M340 and Unity Pro S

4 posts in this topic



First post in this forum - hope I'm not duplicating topics.....

I've had prior experience with Siemens S7 Tags for I/O allocation - how is it done for the M340/Unity setup please ie how do you assign a physical address (say %I.0.1.5) to an input in the program? I imagine it is somewhere in the 'Configuration' section where I have defined all the modules??

I find the standard help quite hard to follow and find what I'm looking for - anyone have any better documentation.

Also I am feeding a quadrature encoder output into a high speed counter module - any tips/examples of suitable program structure to use?

Thanks for listening....

Here is a screenshot of where you enter the tag name and address. You do this in the elementary variables section. If you have a lot of tags to create, then create the 1st one in unity in the elementary variables and select the tag then right click. Then export selected tags. Export to a txt file. You could open this in excel and populate everything quickly there and then import the files by right clicking on variables & fb instances and selecting import.

Regarding the high speed counter, what is the part number of the card?
