Macros are a powerful and flexible tool that complement built-in features with their complex logic operations and data processing capability. The task of writing macros may seem daunting at first, however, macros have fixed syntax rules that are checked by the compiler and there are manuals detailing macro use and TechTips on our website. However, like most coding tasks, macro debugging is necessary if you encounter unexpected results. In cMT Diagnoser, a Macro Debug Tool has been developed to help users quickly identify macro errors and reduce development time. The Macro Debug Tool is easy-to-use. Simply create your macro, compile Continue reading New Feature Announcement – Macro Debug Tool for Weintek cMT Series
After nearly 5 years in Caterham, we’ve moved to bigger premises in nearby Crawley. Twice the size of our previous premises, and with more space for stock and a dedicated training and meeting space, the move will help support our future growth. With good access to the road and rail networks (2 mins from the M23 J10) and just 10 minutes to London Gatwick, it’s a great location to be in. Current circumstances unfortunately dictate that we’re unable to welcome visitors for the time being, however, once the COVID-19 threat has passed, we look forward to inviting our customers and Continue reading We’ve moved!
The open-source Productivity®Open platform provides all the great features of a standard Arduino plus the added power and reliability of an industrial controller. The processor circuit of the P1AM-100 Arduino-compatible CPU is designed to mimic the Arduino MKRZero microcontroller. The P1AM-100 is compatible with most available Arduino MKR format shields, and/or the industrially-hardened ProductivityOpen shields, and can utilize most Arduino sketch programs found on open-source websites. Using the readily-available Arduino integrated development environment (IDE), the P1AM-100 is programmed using C++ code; the ProductivityBlocks graphical programming interface uses a more visual approach that simplifies coding and reduces syntax errors. The P1AM-100 Continue reading New Product Announcement ProductivityOpen Arduino-compatible Controller from Automation Direct
Product Introduction HMIs now often have a wide variety of capabilities, such as data display, machine control, data storage, PLC communication, protocol translation, graphic display, alarm notification, media playback, and IIoT integration. For an advanced HMI, these capabilities are now perceived as basic requirements, however, they can place a heavy burden on the HMIs CPU. Operators are used to operating high-speed consumer devices such as smartphones and tablets and expect a similar user experience and operation speed when working with HMI. For these reasons, Weintek has released the cMT X Series HMI: cMT3092X / cMT3152X / cMT3162X. The cMT X Continue reading New Product Announcement: Weintek cMT X Series
