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

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: 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 Weintek HMI to Print a label on a Zebra Printer using Free Protocol

In this TechTip we’ll be looking at printing a label to a Zebra printer by sending the ZPL string to the com port or Ethernet port on the HMI. Zebra printers are increasingly popular in production and packaging and are Continue reading TechTip: Using Weintek HMI to Print a label on a Zebra Printer using Free Protocol
