TechTip: Dynamic Limits and Tolerance Using a Macro on Weintek HMI

In this TechTip, we’re looking at using dynamic limits in numeric objects, alarm colours, and using a macro to calculate the limits based on a +/- tolerance. In the demo program, the “Actual” value is in LW-0, the “Target” is Continue reading TechTip: Dynamic Limits and Tolerance Using a Macro on Weintek HMI

TechTip: Using HIWORD/LOWORD & HIBYTE/LOBYTE in a macro on Weintek HMI

TechTip on using HIWORD, LOWORD, HIBYTE and LOBYTE on Weintek HMI

The Weintek Macro language has a some useful functions for stripping 32bit and 16bit numbers into words, and bytes. In this macro example, we’re splitting a 32bit word into a 16bit “HIWORD” and a 16bit “LOWORD“, and splitting the two Continue reading TechTip: Using HIWORD/LOWORD & HIBYTE/LOBYTE in a macro on Weintek HMI

TechTip: Weincloud Dashboard

In this TechTip we’ll be running through setting up a Dashboard with Weintek’s “Weincloud Dashboard“. The Dashboard is a simple condition monitoring interface supported on selected EasyAccess Enabled cMT X Series HMIs. Firstly, login to your Weintek Domain account via Continue reading TechTip: Weincloud Dashboard

TechTip: Weintek cMT X Series PLC Web Browser Object

In a factory setting, it may be desirable to limit the access of the cMT X Series web browser. We can do this by unchecking “Show navigation bar” and using the Control registers instead. Control Word Codes:1 – Go2 – Continue reading TechTip: Weintek cMT X Series PLC Web Browser Object

TechTip: Using PDF Reader on Weintek cMT & cMT X Series HMI

The ability to display PDFs on an HMI is a really useful feature; having machine manuals, hardware manuals, brochures, or work instructions available on a machine can help minimise downtime by ensuring valuable documentation remains with the machine. In this Continue reading TechTip: Using PDF Reader on Weintek cMT & cMT X Series HMI

TechTip: How to program Weintek HMI via Ethernet

This guide will show you how to connect a Weintek HMI to a PC via ethernet; to do this, we’ll be making sure that both screen and PC/laptop network adaptor are on the same subnet as each other.  Note: The illustrations in this Guide Continue reading TechTip: How to program Weintek HMI via Ethernet

TechTip: Connecting a Control Techniques Drive to a Weintek HMI Using Modbus RTU

This TechTip is about connecting a Control Techniques drive to a Weintek HMI using Modbus RTU. For the purposes of this TechTip, we’re using a CT Comander C300 drive fitted with an AI-485 option module. Drive SetupEither using the drive Continue reading TechTip: Connecting a Control Techniques Drive to a Weintek HMI Using Modbus RTU

TechTip: Calculating The Difference Between Two Values Using a Macro In a Weintek HMI

This TechTip is about using a macro for a simple calculation to determine the difference between 2 values. To calculate the difference between 2 values, first we use the “>=” operator to determine if value1 is greater than or equal Continue reading TechTip: Calculating The Difference Between Two Values Using a Macro In a Weintek HMI
