• Is it possible to export all of the variables from a machine edition project directly to the devices tab on cimplicity workbench? I've tried the project wizard but it does not import the name of the tags or the addresses.

    Thank you,

  • Hi support,
    We are using CIMPLICITY 8.2 on a Motion F5M PC and polling data from a Schneider PLC M340H through a wireless router.  Our problem is that polling time of the point value goes randomly from instantly to over 10 sec.  We prooved with a comm. software that data is actually always received  instantly by the PC but CIMPLICITY is randomly lagging like mentionned above to display the values. 

    Anybody has a solution?

  • I'm looking for a way to distinguish iPad connections from one another when connecting to WebSpace. We have two iPads which connect to the same WebSpace server. These two iPads are for two different pieces of equipment.

    The two operators should not be able to access one another's machine, but this is proving to be difficult using the iPad's. My first thought was if I could find out the iPad client's IP address (set manually), I could compare them, and then I would know which iPad is accessing and block/allow.

    However, since the iPad / Internet Explorer / Android WebSpace app connects through remote desktop, the IP address will be appear to be the one on the server.

    Does anyone have any ideas how to go about limited the screens to a particular client depending on who the client is?
    Any help is appreciated.

  • Hello,

    im migrating from 3.5 to 5.8

    in the process im replacing the SL4 driver (not supported anymore) to SIX.
    i also converted alot of MIE tags, they could be processed with a little effort in notepad++

    only for the SL4 tags it seems to be almost impossible to convert them.

    db:0:0:0 has te become db0:w0:x0 OR db0:d0

    there isnt a way in my opinion to make sure an sl4 tag is a word or a double.

    anyone has experience with converting SL4 to SIX.. are there tools for it they try to hide from me ?

  • I currently have around 7 .evs files running in the background, this scripts call "General Subroutines" under user.fxg. For what I've read, when the Background Server (BGS) starts, it makes a copy of the scripts under user.fxg and any changes made after will not take effect until the background server is restarted (closed and open).
    Is there a way to apply the changes to the common code under user.fxg without restarting the background server? I don't want to restart the background server is because some of the machines depend on hanshaking bits managed by the scripts in the BGS.
    I made some tests and if you change the code inside the .evs (schedule), then take them to run in the foreground and then back to the background the changes inside the .evs are applied without restarting the BGS, this is not true for the common code under user.fxg.

  • Hello everyone,

    i am migrating a 3.5 system to a new 5.8 system.
    in the process i solve a whole lot of bugs to be a bit cleaner when i release the new network.

    one of the (minor) bugs is.. that i have a filename named "maimenu.grf".
    i inserted an extra "n" in the filename (via ifix workspace), operation went well.

    what doesnt operate smoothly are the other 800 pictures that cant find "maimenu.grf" anymore.
    opening the files one by one in workspace and search thru vba-script is due to time consumption not an option.
    i tried to do a mass replace in notepad++ (replace in all files of a directory), but all the files went corrupt and could not open them in workspace anymore..

    is there somebody out there who knows a solution to this?
