PLUS+1 GUIDE CANKing / Re: Hex Mode
« Last post by FluidPowerTom on March 27, 2023, 05:27:38 PM »
Tor, you're the man.  I wish I'd asked this years ago...

Edit:  Oh wait, never mind.  Okay, I'm actually clicking that 'Options' button, and nothing is coming up.  I tried going on bus with the virtual CG150, and still nothing pops up.

Even so, if I go to the Options dropdown in the main windows and click Global that pops up a window called Program Options.  It really would seem like selecting hexadecimal in that window would change the output window as well.  Why would it only change the window for putting together messages to transmit but not the output window?  I mean the area it's in is Options->Global.  There's nothing about that which makes it look like it's only for the message creation.

Edit 2:  Okay I figured it out.  You have to click to highlight Standard Text Format in that lower part of the window and then click options.  Pretty clunky.  Still I would think that the Options->Global window pop up would do the same thing.
Controllers / SC050-120 Safety Layer Issue
« Last post by acmall on March 27, 2023, 03:27:21 PM »
I am getting reports of an intermittent issue on a SC050-120 with a Safety Layer Failure. The SafetyLayer.Failure signal has bit 4 set. I can't find any information on this other than the description of ISR Monitor Error, I am guessing ISR stands for Interrupt Service Routine. It is mostly happening at power on and needs a power cycle to clear.

Has anyone seen this before?

Hey mvanwiechem

It was a problem with the permissions of the IT service. I've been working on a virtual computer ever since so I don't have this problem anymore.

Still, thanks for your time!

Is your project/folder located on a Network drive?  Sometimes this can cause issues with compiling, and no real error is given.

Try to copy your project to C drive, and see if you get the same error.

Hello FluidPowerTom.

It was a while since I used CAN King and I'm not an expert, but I guess both of the things you ask for is possible.

1. Hexadecimal in the output window. 
See page 1 in the CAN King pdf.

2. Cyclic messages.
See page 2 - 5 in the CAN King pdf.
You need to have a message (History List) to create a cyclic transmission (Timed Transmission).  I included the One-Shot messages as a bonus.

I hope I understood your question correct and that this helped.

Have a nice day.

Selecting hexadecimal mode really, really should change the output window to display in hexadecimal.  At this time all it does, as far as I can tell, it make it so that your messages that you create in there are entered in hex.  Another request would be easily making it so that messages sent can be cyclic instead of one time.

PCAN-VIEW has these features and is probably the main competitor.  I've actually switched over to it for testing just to use those features.
I/O Modules / Re: IOX024 Pulsing/Flashing Outputs
« Last post by Lukey on March 24, 2023, 08:11:50 AM »
Tom I tired changing the ExecTimeOut default of 100ms to 500ms, this did not rectify the issue, all it did was increase the time between pulsing, it was still there.

I'm still stumped as to what it could be.

Adding more to the story, I've just complete testing another project, again a DM430E, and this time a OX024, same issue can be found, Pulsing/Flashing Outputs.
This project program only has 1 PVEA output, no PI Loop.

So I can confirm/assuming the following;
Program not at fault
No particular model Expansion I/O modules at fault

The only constant here is the DM430E and Expansion module Outputs.

Can anyone comment to confirm that have used a DM430E and Expansion module Outputs successfully without issue?

I'd be a little surprised if you were overloading the display's processor, but three PI loops might be doing it.  You might check to see what your ExecTimeWork, ExecTimeOut. amd ExecTime are set to.  Maybe you need to request a slower processing time (ExecTimeOut)?

Hello Lukey

My apologies to all of you, I over looked this. But thanks for all the help! The program now works without any problems!  ;D
Code sharing / Re: Display/DM**** Bar Graph with Color Changing Indication

Thanks acmall, found my issue was how i was addressing the RGB HEX Color code, I failed to put the required 00 on the end thus my graphic wasn't displaying correctly.

For others to reference see my code below, thanks!
