New Weintek Driver Announcement – Automation Direct Productivity Series

To compliment the excellent Productivity Series Controller from Automation Direct, Weintek have added a dedicated driver and tag import facility so user Tags from the controller project can be easily added to an HMI program. First write your Productivity Controller program in Productivity Suite… If you’re familiar with Productivity Suite, you no doubt know that you can define tags for your i/o, registers, timer values etc as you go making it a very intuitive controller to use. The Productivity tag database is accessed from the edit menu. In this example, we’re only looking at Discrete i/o, Integers & Booleans… You Continue reading New Weintek Driver Announcement – Automation Direct Productivity Series

TechTip: Ramp Up and Down a Value Using a Macro On Weintek HMI

This TechTip is about using For/Next loops to ramp up and down a value on a Weintek HMI. The macro is using local word LW 100 as the output, the time in mS between steps is set by “time” (LW 101), the value to increment/decrement by is variable “IncDecValue” (LW 102) and the number of iterations is “steps” (LW 103). The Macro: macro_command main() short value = 0 // “value” is a short (16bit) – this has been zeroed – just in case! short IncDecValue // change the increment/decrement value here short i // i is a short to be used Continue reading TechTip: Ramp Up and Down a Value Using a Macro On Weintek HMI

New Product Announcement – cMT3071 – 7″ HMI

Product Introduction and Features Being compact and cost-effective, Weintek 7” HMI have always been a popular product. With that in mind, Weintek have introduced a new 7” HMI: cMT3071. The new model aims to make cMT Series models a more accessible option allowing more of our customers to build their smart factories using cMT’s rich, powerful features. The cMT3071 boasts higher hardware spec than its iE/iP/eMT Series counterparts in every aspect, with better computational performance it delivers a richer user experience. Equipped with a dual-core Cortex A9 1GHz CPU, 4GB Flash and 1GB RAM, the cMT3071 runs more smoothly, allows projects with Continue reading New Product Announcement – cMT3071 – 7″ HMI
