Earlier in 2018, Weintek released a high-efficiency control solution: HMI+CODESYS+I/O Module, which has received positive feedback from customers. To make it a more complete solution, Weintek has developed new modules for the iR Series modules: Analog I/O modules and a Temperature module. iR Series i/o combined with a CODESYS enabled HMI can take care of complex tasks that traditionally would have required a separate PLC – saving you both time and money. The new four new iR Series Analog Modules are: iR-AI04-VI 4 channel Analog Input iR-AQ04-VI 4 channel Analog Output iR-AM06-VI 4 channel Analog Input + 2 channel Analog Continue reading New Product Annoucement – Analog and Temperature Modules For Weintek iR Series i/o
We’re proud to announce we’ve sponsored Harris Academy Purley so that year 7 pupils can participate in “Race for the line” Season 4; everyone here at Lamonde is passionate about science, engineering and innovation and are glad to help to inspire the next generation of UK engineers, inventors, innovators and scientists. So what is Race for the line all about? The student teams must design and make the fastest rocket powered car they can and compete with their designs across multiple stages in a national competition. Each team’s car will use the same size rocket motor and compete over the same track Continue reading We’ve Sponsored Harris Academy Purley to Participate in “Race for the line” Season 4
In this TechTip we’re looking at using tags in a project and how they work in a macro. Address Tags are a great way to maintain control of elements you may wish to reassign later to an alternative address. In our simple example, we have 2 tags set up in the Address Tag Library using local bits. They are called “Lamp” and “Lamp2” mapped to LB10 and LB100. In our Macro we can pick Tags by ticking the “User-defined tag” box on the macro helper: Macro from our example project is as follows… note the use of Tags “Lamp” and Continue reading TechTip: Using Project Tags In a Macro On a Weintek HMI
The reduced interface in EasyBuilder Pro for the cMT-GXX series Gateway means that to start the EasyAccess 2.0 service we have to find a way to set the EasyAccess Control word LW 10820 to “1” to start the service. (At this point it is assumed that you have already purchased EasyAccess 2.0 and assigned it to your cMT-GXX gateway using PC Activator or the online service in on the web portal.) The Macro below will set the required control word to enable the service: =========================================== macro_command main() short EA2Enable = 1 // EA2Enable is a short (16bit word) and we’re Continue reading TechTip: Enabling EasyAccess 2.0 on a cMT-GXX Gateway
This TechTip is about sending alarms from a Weintek HMI. The example is using Gmail – but you can use your own preferred email provider of course. In Gmail, you will need to enable “Allow less secure apps”. this can be found here: https://myaccount.google.com/lesssecureapps when logged into your Gmail account. This is because a Weintek HMI is not a device recognised by Google (such as a PC, iPad, IOS or Android device). In EasyBuilder Pro system parameters, we need to tick the enable email box. and enter the account credentials. They are as shown below (for Gmail – other email providers may differ). You also Continue reading TechTip: Sending Alarm Emails from a Weintek HMI
We’re excited to announce the release of version 2.30 of the CLICK programming software – this can be downloaded from our website here. The big news items here is that High-Speed inputs are now available on the CLICK Ethernet CPUs – a list of the available configurations by CPU type is at the bottom of this article. There are a couple of minor points to note for those migrating from Version 2.20 of the CLICK Software, the main one is that the Input setup that was previously configured in the CPU Built-in I/O Setup as below… …is now done from the “High Speed Continue reading Version 2.30 CLICK Programming Software Released – CLICK CPU now with High Speed Inputs!
