Defining Yes , few more cells with Flash Animation Properties are enabled. Flash animation is dependent on the internal or PLC tag. This tag can be either coil type or Numeric Type. As per the selection of tag type used for animation , other cell property ranges of Flash animation are defined. Flash When:- Designer can see following text in this cell -Within Range/Out of range (If tag Selected is of Numeric type) -On/Off (If tag selected is of Bit/Coil type) If the tag is numeric type then designer can define to flash the object within some range of values of the tag or to flash the object out of range of the values of the tag. If the Tag is Coil/Bit type then designer can define to flash the object at the On state of the tag or to flash the object at Off state of the tag. Speed:- Three various speeds at which the object can be flashed are Slow, Medium and Fast. Tag List:- To define the tag either Numeric type or Coil type,on whose condition object embed- ded on screen will be defined for Flash Animation.If the tag is numeric type then ëFlash whení cell will be with within range option or Out of range option.Even two more cells with High range and Low range is enabled, in which the low limit and high limit value has to be defined by the designer. According to the value in the tag and flash when option selected by designer, object will flash. If the tag is Coil type then object can be flashed on the On state of the tag or on the Off state of the tag. Flyout to this cell will show the list of already defined tags from tag database. Note:- i) Value that can be defined in Low range and high range cell is from 0-65535 only. ii) This feature can be tested and confirmed through Offline simulation / Run mode also iii) If Flash animation is selected in Animation section, then Flash Cell from Appearance section is disabled. V isibility Animation :- To show or hide the object embedded on unit screen can be performed with defining this cell as ëYesí.

Once the tags are defined (as register or coils) and their attributes selected, the tags can be used in the application on screens, tasks, alarms etc. This screen helps you to define Tags associated with defined Nodes. A tag is a register, coil or an individual bit of a register. Select the type of tag from the Tag Type field. If the type of tag selected is a register then the number of bytes required can also be selected. For displaying or editing a floating point data number, the number of bytes must be 4. The Tag Name field is user definable. A tag is not added to the tag list unless a tag name is defined. Once these fields are defined, click on the Add button. The Block field in the tag database defines the starting address of the tag block followed by the block size. For example : Tag M0214 is within a block ( M0214 : 1 ) whose starting address is M0214 and block size is 1. This block size is optimized automatically depending on the address of PLC Tag. Default block size is either 1 or 16. This setting varies from PLC to PLC. The attributes of existing tag can be changed by highlighting the tag, making the changes, and clicking the Change Tag button. An existing tag can be removed from tag list by clicking on Delete Tag button. Note that removal of tags is possible only if they are not used in any screen. Add - Use this button to add a tag. After clicking this button, the user has to define the following: 1. Node : Where the tag is located. 2. Register, coil or a bit within a register. Registers can be read only or read/write. 3. The address limits are shown and vary from PLC model to model. 4. Tag name : Each tag needs to have a unique name. The name can be up to 40 characters in length. 5. Byte(s) : If the selected tag is a register, the tag can be defined as a 1 byte ( either high or low byte), a 2 byte, or a 4 byte tag. Edit ñ Select the tag. Edit the information and then click on the Update button. Delete - Select the tag and click on Delete button to delete the tag. Before deleting any tag, the user must delete any references to the tag in screens and tasks. Otherwise it can not be deleted.

To connect your unit to the computer 1) Connect a +24VDC power supply to the unit. 2) Connect the programming cable to the computer and FP4030MR. Connect programming cable to the communication port of the unit. Download Firmware i.e. driver for the PLC. The unit cannot communicate with PLC till the required driver is downloaded. 3) Apply power to the unit. To connect your PLC to unit A unit can communicate with any PLC without any change in the FP4030MR unit hardware. To communicate with a PLC, the unit needs: 1) Proper Communication Driver for the PLC Each PLC has a defined protocol for communicating with any device. The communication driver is down loaded into the unit along with the firmware. The communications driver varies from PLC to PLC. This driver enables the unit to talk to a specific PLC. 2) FP4030MR unit - PLC communication cable A proper FP4030MR unit - PLC cable is required for error free communication with any PLC. 1.2 Installing FlexiSoft configuration software: To install FlexoSoft configuration Software: 1.

There are two categories of alarm 1. Real time alarms: Stored & displayed as long as unit power is ON. 2. Historical alarms: Stores alarms in memory with battery back up. In case of historical alarms the alarms defined with ìHistorical attributeî are logged till the unit is ON. Then even though you turn the unit OFF & then back ON after few days you can still view the alarms that were present when the unit was ON earlier. The alarm object displays the alarm text when the alarm occurs. First triggered alarm is on top. Alarm condition for alarm should be cleared. Each alarm has to be acknowledged. ëAcknowledge Alarmí key acknowledges the alarm. The alarm text is cleared when the alarm condition is cleared and the alarm is acknowledged. Alarm text for unacknowledged or uncleared alarm will not be cleared. Any tag can be continuously monitored by defining alarms for each bit of that tag. To display an alarm on the screen as soon as it is triggered, alarm object has to be placed on the screen. An alarm is triggered for each bit in a tag. If the value of the particular tag becomes nonzero, corresponding alarm is displayed in the alarm object. An alarm is a bit in a particular 2-byte tag. This two-byte tag is defined as a particular group in the alarm definition table. Since a two-byte tag contains 16 bits one such tag can generate 16 alarms. So to define 64 alarms we need to create 4 groups with 4 different two byte tags & define one alarm per bit in that. In total you can define up to 256 real time and can store 6000 historical alarms. 6.2 Alarm at Project Configuration At project configuration; when you select ìAlarmî tab, below shown window is seen:

Note: Format may be kept as ìUnicodeî by default; provided that, importing text should be in ìUnicodeî format only. ASCII format is that language format, which employs a 7-bit coding scheme, supporting 128 (2 7 ) characters, which is quite satisfactory for both upper case and lower case letters of the English alphabet and similarly simple Roman alphabets, Arabic numerals, punctuation marks, a reasonable complement of special charac- ters, and a modest number of control characters. The Unicode format developed the original coding scheme to support multiple complex alphabets such as Chinese, Devanagri (Hindi), Japanese, and Korean. In the Japanese language, for example, even the abbrevi- ated Kanji writing system contains well over 2,000 written ideographic characters; the Hirigana and Katakana alphabets add considerably to the complexity. As 7- and 8-bit coding schemes cannot accommodate such complex alphabets, computer manufacturers traditionally have taken proprietary approaches to this problem through the use of two linked 8-bit values. This ìUNICODEî format supports 65,536 (2 16 ) characters, which accommodates the most complex alphabets. Unicode accommodates pre-existing standard coding schemes, using the same byte values for consistency. Unicode encodes all characters in byte sequences varying from one to five bytes. 2.

89. Task Management 89 Doc No: UMAN/TriPLC-Reference Ver.: 1.00 Key Task: The key specific task can be derived either as Screen Specific key task or as global key task. Hence the hardware keys can perform two operations one at if defined for specific screen key and other at if being defined as Global Key task. Preference to the task is given for Screen Specific Keys than to the Global Keys. E.g:- Application project with 2 Screens defined with Data Reg D000 Embedded on Screen 1 as well as Screen 2. Screen 1 F1 Key :- Defined as Write Value 45 to Tag D000 Screen 2 F1 Key :- Is undefined. Global F1 Key :- Defined as Write Value 5555 to Tag D000 Now if , Unit displays Screen 1 and user press F1 then Value displayed will be 45 (giving preference to Screen Specific Key) and if unit displays Screen 2 and user press F1 then value displayed is 5555 (as no screen Specific key task defined, hence perform Global key task). Two types of Key task are : 1) Screen Key Task 2) Global Key Task. The tasks related to any of the keys (Screen Key or Global keys) can be operated in 3 ways 1) Press T ask:- Perform defined operation once at the press of key. The list of task which can be operated at one touch of Key are as shown in Fig.Various list of tasks related to screen or Tag can be defined in this ìPress Taskî. All these tasks in one key press will get executed sequentially, i.e. first task will get executed first and last one at last. 2) Pressed T ask:- Perform defined operation with key being kept pressed continuously. Various list of tasks related to Tag or group of tags(i.e. Blocks) can be defined in this ìPressed Taskî. All these tasks will be repetatively getting executed sequentially at key being kept pressed, i.e. first task will get executed first and last one at last. 3) Released T ask:- Perform defined operation once after the release of key.Various list of tasks related to screen,Tag or group of tags (Blocks) can be defined in this ìReleased Tasksî. All these tasks will get executed sequentially at the instant of release of touched key.

Through this task operation user can switch to any screen from any of the existing screens by defining it in Power on Task, Press Task of Key, Released task of Key, Before showing screen Task, After hiding Screen task. 2) Next Screen:- The task operation is used to switch to next screen from the existing displayed screen. This task operation can be used through Power on Task, Press Task of Key, Released task of Key, Before showing screen Task, After hiding Screen task. 3) Previous Screen:- The task operation is used to switch to previous screen from the existing displayed screen. This task operation can be used through Power on Task, Press Task of Key, Released task of Key, Before showing screen Task, After hiding Screen task. 4) Write Value to Tag:- The task operation is used to write an constant value in internal tag or PLC Tag defined in tag data base. This task operation can be executed through all Tasks, Tasks (Poweron and Global), Key Tasks with local keys or global keys with (Press/Pressed/Released) and through screen tasks (Before Showing, While Showing and After hiding Screen). 5) Add a constant Value to a Tag:- The task operation is used to add a constant value continuously in internal tag or PLC Tag defined in tag data base. This task operation can be executed through all Tasks, Tasks (Poweron and Global), Key Tasks with local keys or global keys with (Press/Pressed/Released) and through screen tasks (Before Showing ,While Showing and After hiding Screen). The constant value number range selection limits, depends upon the bytes defined for the selected Tag defined in Tag Data base. If tag is 2 byte then number range will be 0-65535 and if Tag is 4 byte then number range will be 0-4294967295. 6) Substract a constant Value to a Tag:- The task operation is used to substract a constant value continu- ously from internal tag or PLC Tag defined in tag data base. This task operation can be executed through all Tasks , Tasks(Poweron and Global),Key Tasks with local keys or global keys with (Press/Pressed/Released) and through screen tasks (Before Showing ,While Showing and After hiding Screen).The constant value number range selection limits , depends upon the bytes defined for the selected Tag defined in Tag Data base. If tag is 2 byte then number range will be 0-65535 and if Tag is 4 byte then number range will be 0-4294967295. 7) Add Tag B to Tag A:- The task operation is used to add a value from particular tag to a value of another tag. Value of tag which is to be added is to be defined as Tag B, and the value of tag in which it is to be added is to be defined as Tag A , the result of adding both tag is stored in Tag A. So mathematical operation formed through this task operation is Tag A=Tag A + Tag B. These A or B tag can be either Internal tag or PLC tags defined in Tag Database. This task operation can be executed through all Tasks , Tasks(Poweron and Global),Key Tasks with local keys or global keys with (Press/Pressed/Released) and through screen tasks (Before Showing ,While Showing and After hiding Screen). 8) Substract Tag B from Tag A:- The task operation is used to substract a value of particular tag from a value of another tag. Value of tag which is to be substracted is to be defined as Tag B, and the value of tag from which it is to be substracted is to be defined as Tag A , the result of substracting values from tag is stored in Tag A. So mathematical operation formed through this task operation is Tag A=Tag A - Tag B. These A or B tag can be either Internal tag or PLC tags defined in Tag Database. This task operation can be executed through all Tasks , Tasks(Poweron and Global),Key Tasks with local keys or global keys with (Press/Pressed/Released) and through screen tasks (Before Showing ,While Showing and After hiding Screen). 9) Turn Bit ON:- The task operation is used to Turn On the bit from its previous off state. This task can be executed only on the Bit type/Coil type tag. The tag can be either Internal tag or PLC tag. This task operation can be executed through all Tasks , Tasks(Poweron and Global),Key Tasks with local keys or global keys with (Press/Pressed/Released) and through screen tasks (Before Showing ,While Showing and After hiding Screen). 10) Turn Bit OFF:- The task operation is used to Turn Off the bit from its previous on state. This task can be executed only on the Bit type/Coil type tag. The tag can be either Internal tag or PLC tag. This task operation can be executed through all Tasks , Tasks(Poweron and Global),Key Tasks with local keys or global keys with (Press/Pressed/Released) and through screen tasks (Before Showing ,While Showing and After hiding Screen).

In the example shown above, user has selected Tri PLCs at COM1. 2. Port Settings - You can set PLC communication parameters like Baud Rate, Parity, Data Bits and Stop Bits. The PLC Communication parameters are: i. Baud Rate : Baud Rate is the measure of number of times per second a signal in a commu- nication channel changes state. ii. Parity: Parity bit is included to check that data has been transmitted accurately. Parity bits are None, Odd and Even. iii. Data Bits : Data bits are number of bits used to represent one character of data. For FP4030MR units, Data bits are either 7 or 8. iv. Stop Bits : Stop bits are inserted into the data frame to inform the receiving end that the transmission of byte of data is complete. For FP unit, Stop bits are either 1 or 2. 3. Address: Enter a unique PLC node address ( 0 to 255) 4. Name: Specify a name for the node name up to 15 characters in length. 5. Inter Frame Delay: Inter Frame Delay is the delay between the response received of last query and the next query that is to be transmitted. 6. Response timeout: Response time out is the maximum time in which slave should respond to a master query. If slave does not respond to a master query within this time, the master will declare that the slave has been timed out. 7. Retry Count: Retrycount is the number of retry queries master will send to slave, if slave is timed out. When all retries are finished, the master will declare a communication break and will show ì!!!!î. 8. Add Node: This will add the node to the network. 9. Change Node: The user can change PLC or PLC related information. This is done by highlighting the node, changing the information and finally clicking the button ëChange a Nodeí.
