As we continue to strive to deliver high-quality products and service we have just had our quality management system reassessed and approved as operating in accordance with ISO 9001:2015. A PDF of our new certificate can be downloaded from here.
This TechTip is about automatically changing the HMI window when logout, or Auto logout occurs. This could be useful if you want to ensure that if a user with elevated privileges leaves the HMI without logging out then the HMI will return to a normal operating or information window. Auto logout enabled is set in the System tab of System Parameters Setting in EasyBuilder Pro. To achieve window change on logout or Auto logout, we’ll use a macro to check the value of LW 9222 – this is the system register holding the value of operable security classes. If a Continue reading TechTip: Window Change on Auto-Logout Weintek HMI
Not being one to rest on his laurels, Matt, having finished the 2019 season as the Minitwins Rookie champion at the last meeting in October 2019 knew that he could be doing even better, so over the winter, he enlisted the help of renowned motorcycle road racing coach Mike ‘Spike” Edwards who coached Matt in Andalucia, Spain. Also over the winter, Matt acquired a second bike so he now has a “wet” and “dry” bike to suit race conditions rather than frantic tyre changes and suspension tweaks of last year; the rookie championship-winning bike becoming the wet bike and the Continue reading Race Report from Round 1 – Brands Hatch Indy.
