so HYWG_L2 is not a new display that was recently added? ------------------------------ Adam Ackerman ------------------------------

We lost a product line that had lineage and reliability with 20 plus years of development in the 6181 series. It was well built and robust and did everything possible to negate and circumvent the innate issues of being Microsoft Windows based. We then lost the promising replacement product line in the ...

I have never found an advantage to using .apa/.apb for ME projects. In fact, the advantage I see is using the .mer for storage as it is more portable. If the project needs reloaded, I can just send the customer the .mer and there is no need to restore it to a Workstation since the communications are ...

nope. Which is why I argue that FTv Studio is NOT a high-speed HMI solution; this also means it is not high availability either. I have even gone as far as building out expressions that only call a tag if the conditions are met, but FTv Studio still tries to evaluate that tag simply because it ...

I jumped the gun, this is not relevant to your hardware. You need Factorytalk View Studio Machine edition. This includes the ME transfer utility which is used to download and upload the Runtime projects. If the runtimes are on the same line and communicate to the same PLC you should just be ...

It does appear that I am missing the chat option for FT Hub and its products, our distributor specialist has it listed on their account, but I don't have the option on mine. so, I have sent in an email request to see if there is something in my account that needs addressed. I will admit that I am pretty ...

new issue. How does one get phone support for a product that does not require a license to use? So far, I have been told that we don't have phone support in our contract, we do. And then was told that Optix does not have a phone support unless you pay for Pro. AND THEN, I was told that phone support ...

Point 1 is safety concern, that's how we would handle it. Sounds like you are an OEM building a similar product; I too am an HMI developer at an OEM. I would argue that having two operators with the ability to interact with the system in the same way at the same time is a hazard to both the operators, ...

have you ever created a runtime before? If yes, run patches and reboot. If no, likely permissions issues. you need to be a local admin for most of the RA stuff to function. you also need to have permissions for the Public user. Also, run patches. ------------------------------ Adam Ackerman ...

you cannot use a PV to display a ThinManager deployed screen; the only connection ThinManager has to "PanelViews" is that you can display a PV VNC session on a ThinManager display. The product line naming is confusing, the ThinManager displays are still called VersaView and I see that cause confusion ...

I have done a lot of additional testing, but I am not able to determine exactly where this error is occurring in the process. Many of the descriptions on ctrlX are blank, but I cannot determine if those are the same descriptions being referenced in the error message. As error messages go, this has to ...

I am able to make a connection, that issue was resolved by expanding the max array size in the OPC UA configuration in Optix to 123000 as per @AutomateSHANE. I also had to play with certificates a bit but finally got that sorted as well. Then finally I was at a loss on how to input the username and password, ...

I am looking for some more specific information regarding the configuration of the Codesys driver in Optix. One document suggest that you can only get communication working through the OPC UA client while another says that configuring the driver allows for tag browsing. And I would assume the latter ...

That does address it, but the string is coming from the Global definitions on a global object; I am just defining it as literal text rather than a string. That is why I tried just adding spaces to manually justify it. But that also highlights the problem with this software; it's a conglomeration of ...

I am really surprised I have never run into this before, but there appears to be no way to get a string variable in a Button Lable to center justify. Straight text centers on its own, but not if populated from say a variable looking at the global parameter values of a global object. Also, it appears ...
