CX-Supervisor runtime startup question

4 posts in this topic

Hi all.

When I start Cx-Supervisor runtime v3.4 on startup for some devices are showed dialog with question like:

"Switch device to Monitor mode?"

Why this dialog is displayed? How to scip this question and use default settings?

Yes (depending on PLC type).  If I remember then RUN on the old C series meant the program ran, but refused read and write communications requests - pretty critical for a SCADA app!  (in fact didn't the CS have it on physical font panel 'key' operation?). Anyway that's why CX-Supervisor assumes you really want this changed to Monitor mode.  You can use CX-Programmer to change the default PLC startup mode.

This is the background but maybe for newer PLCs this behaviour has evolved
