Function Library / Fault Manager Library

Has anyone used this yet?
Is it possible to use this to convert SPN/FMI from an engine and display text equivalent?

Hey guys,

did you solve your issue?

I am trying to set engine RPM of an FPT TIER4 engine but it seems to ignore my request.

I am using the TSC1 V5 of Danfoss it comes with the checksum choice but still the mesage is not taken by the engine ECM

has anyone used the latest TSC1 V5 from danfoss in a Tier4 engine, ?

if so, what were your settings?


PLUS+1™ GUIDE / Re: Guide and Service Tool 12.0.6

I can't add anything here that hasn't already been said, but hopefully numbers count so here's my input.

My first thoughts was that there was a graphical glitch as GUIDE turned dark and lost it's colours.  Nilla informed me it was no error, it was intentional!  I was so put off that I'll stay with V11 until the colours and clarity return or I'm forced to update.  I did wonder whether I had just got too used to the way it looked, but I found it reassuring that I was not alone.

As for multi-line text editing...PLEASE PLEASE add this.  Single line text it so awkward to write lengthy notes in the code I simply don't bother or keep it to a minimum which is a real pain when someone else comes to understand my code.

I'm going to avoid looking for the positive so I avoid the decision or whether to switch to V12 or not.  Without knowing the Pro's it's a no brainer, V11 wins for me.

Have you watched the PLUS+1 GUIDE debugger videos on the SW PAE teams YouTube channel ? They might help help you.

I think I am looking for similar functionality.

Essentially what I want to do is play a short video clip on the display. Currently the only way to do it that I am aware of is to bring in an image list with the frames of the video activating each frame in turn. I am using a DM430E display.

Are there any other functions built in that can display a video file?
Controllers / Re: MC-050 120 Family - MFOut Pins - OpenLoop vs Closed Loop modes

What is the supply volts and load resistance? At 12V, 0.53A suggests a load resistance of 22.6 ohms.

Output modes 4 or 5 use closed-loop current control which means that you programmatically tell the microcontroller what current you want that output pin to send, and it will do its best to send that output current even as the coil impedance changes with temperature. 

Mode 3 is duty cycle control wherein you programmatically fell the microcontroller what duty cycle you want that output pin to send, and that effectively just a varying voltage.  This makes no use of current feedback.

My recommendation is to put a checkpoint in your program and verify that you are actually commanding a current above 530 mA.
Hello, everyone,

A client of ours is using the MC050-122 model for controlling high torque hydraulics. He needs to manipulate for EDC valves, and we are running into a problem with the output of the pins being current limited.

To help diagnose the problem, we need to know which of the output modes for the MFout pins use open loop mode vs closed loop mode and what the current feedback signal means in those two modes.

The valves require between 300 mA minimum to 700mA maximum each, which is well within the current limits of these MFout pins. For whatever reason, the current is plateauing around 530 mA. We are currently using Output Mode 4 for these pins, and we monitor the feedback current as a fault check.

Answering my own question..

Widget Library User Manual describes how to install the font.

I get a font missing error when I try to import any of the gauges dial gauges in the newly released Widget Library.  (Screenshot attached and shown below)

   Missing fonts:
   DejaVu Sans

What's the best way to resolve missing fonts?
