Sysmac Studio NA5 System Variables

8 posts in this topic

Still learning Sysmac Studio......how do I gain access to System Variables like 'PageIndex" so my PLC can be notified what Page the HMI is on?  Also, how can I execute an 'Acknowledge All' from the PLC so I can reset the 'Alarm Viewer Popup' from my PLC?

Thanks,

There is no access to HMI variables from the PLC.  You need to make PLC variables and map them into the HMI.  Then in the HMI you can do things such as ack all alarms when the input goes true.  Global events is the best place to perform those.

OK, so here is what I have tried to setup....but it tells me that my AcknowledgeAll Subroutine does not exist??  Do I have to compile it or something before it recognizes it is there?

Thanks.....

I figured out what I was doing wrong....dug into some manuals I found online...

Thanks for the initial nudge in the right direction :)

There are also factory-created IAG components with keypads for things like alarms, recipes, trend graphs, and I know there is a button to ack all alarms.
