EA3 Micro Panel

5 posts in this topic

I want to display the current time of day on mt Micro HMI, EA3-T6CL. Is there a function for this? How can I get the TOD to display?

I'm not sure there is an option to display time of day on these Micro HMIs. I have a couple of them here but I don't see an option to configure this in the software. These are great little units but have their limitations. I have found the support from Automation Direct pretty good with all their products. It might be worth dropping them a quick email if no-one else jumps in with a solution.  techbox@Automationdirect.com

Any chance the PLC has a clock?  In Rockwell, there is a wall clock that can be access by a GSV (Get System Value) that places the month, day, year, hours, minutes, seconds, milliseconds in a array.  If your PLC has something like that then you could use simple numeric displays on the Micro.

I don't think the EA3 panels have a built in clock, the EA9 series does. 

The suggestion above if the PLC has a clock would work fine.
