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

TechTip: Using the Shape Library with Weintek HMI

A frequently asked question we receive is “How do I create a multi-state lamp – for example to use with a Word Lamp?” This TechTip will hopefully make the process of creating a multi-state shape object clearer. Start a blank Continue reading TechTip: Using the Shape Library with Weintek HMI

TechTip: Using Languages On Weintek HMI

This TechTip is about using languages on Weintek HMI. Languages are controlled by a local word, LW9134. YouTube video of a demo project: Setting LW 9134 to 0 selects “Language 1“, setting to 1 selects “Language 2“, and so on. Continue reading TechTip: Using Languages On Weintek HMI

TechTip: Embedding Variables In a Weintek HMI Alarm/Event Log

Often, when wanting a notification about a process, it is just that, a notification. A simple email reporting a few process values at a given point in time. In a previous TechTip, we covered sending alarm emails from the Weintek Continue reading TechTip: Embedding Variables In a Weintek HMI Alarm/Event Log

TechTip: Using StringCat in a Macro on Weintek HMI

This TechTip is about using “StringCat” in a Weintek HMI macro. You may already be familiar with using CONCAT in Microsoft Excel to link different text strings together to form a new string, this is what StringCat does.┬áIn this example, Continue reading TechTip: Using StringCat in a Macro on Weintek HMI

TechTip: For-Next Loop in Weintek HMI Macro

In this TechTip, we’ll be looking at For-Next loops in the Weintek HMI macro language. It will be assumed that you’ve already got some basic knowledge of Weintek macros. As in other macro TechTips we’ll start off by declaring some Continue reading TechTip: For-Next Loop in Weintek HMI Macro
