MD4 update failure when using G2 modem remotely

Kevin 9 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Ulrik Zakariasson (Software development) 9 years ago 7
We have recently updated a machine from 3.14 to 3.16 to fix the remote update issue with 'unstable connection' on MD4 when updating using G2 modem. Our system is 1 x MD4, 2 x MC3.

I updated the whole system to 3.16 using a CAN communication device successfully (updating both the firmware and then the application). I then proceeded to update the application again using IQAN design 3.16 remotely through the G2 modem and both MC3's update successfully but the MD4 always hangs and it then errors in IQAN Design saying no reply from master module.

Of the 4 attempts three attempts just displayed application deleted (didn't get to the stage of progress of updating the software) and the other time it got to 68% and hung until IQAN Design said no reply from master module.

Can you advise what my problem may be, if its a bug in the software anywhere still please?

image iso on md3

Masia Jean-Baptiste 9 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 9 years ago 4
Hello
It's possible to use a ISO image on the MD3 ?
Because i can't .

Best regards
Jean-Baptiste

Answer
Yes, this is possible. To make the ISO symbols work on the MD3, they must be specified as BMP.

When using a BMP on the MD3, it will be automatically compressed, so size of the image is not that much of an issue.
For the MD4 however, the original file format is kept, and on the MD4 is best to always use PNG.

Although you do specifiy a file format for the ISO sympols, the option to export the images from the project file is grayed out by IQANdesign for these images. This is due to license restrictions.

IQAN 4 bugs

ksilovich 9 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Ulrik Zakariasson (Software development) 8 years ago 6

I found a few bugs/annoyances in the new IQAN 4 design.


1)

I can not get any program to simulate. If I click run in Design or if I open it up straight from simulate I am getting this error.

Image 270


2)

The other annoyance is with the bottom Object List dialog box. Is there a way to pin it to stay open no matter what. It will close when you click on the background of the function group. IQAN 3 it never closed, and I prefer it that way.

saturated current out

Zach 9 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 9 years ago 2
I see that Saturated in the manual says 50-100% of the requested is supplied.
I don't see any guide how to fix that.
I have a positive that works and a negative that doesn't for a current out to grapple rotate cw and ccw respectively.
CCW is yellow, saturated is the label.

Generic parameter in channel (GPIN) Value in simulation

AxelC 9 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Richard 12 months ago 4
It would be great to be able to enter the GPIN value with keyboard on simulation.
Actually depending on the size of the GPIN the possible values (from the cursor) doesn't allow to test every values.
For exemple, my speed value jump from 311 to 638.

Trying to find out if the JPOUT from IQAN systems is Big Endian or Little Endian? I know that it is a setting for the GPOUT but not sure what the default is for the JPOUT.

QCode bug: 'result' not in pulldown menu

Dave Minerath 8 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Ulrik Zakariasson (Software development) 8 years ago 6

When I try to use QCode and start typing


result:=


The pulldown menu only shows

<space>:=

after I type the first few chafracters.


So, if I type


re


The menu shows

:=


so I click on it, and the Qcode line ends up looking like this:


re :=(Warning Code Valve 3 GPIN>0)and (Warning Code Valve 3 GPIN<>12 and Warning Code Valve 3 GPIN<>15 )

instead of

result :=(Warning Code Valve 3 GPIN>0)and (Warning Code Valve 3 GPIN<>12 and Warning Code Valve 3 GPIN<>15 )

This worked fine in version 4.00, and seems to be new to 4.01.

Answer

Ok, I see. Some channel types don't use the

Result :=

syntax. Instead they use Qcode commands. The event counter is one of those. Look at the IQ hint for each channel type to see its Qcode syntax. This is from the IQ hint for event counter:

The event counter channel is controlled by using Qcode commands. The following commands are available:

    • QIncrease increments the value of the channel.
    • QDecrease decrements the value of the channel.
    • QReset resets the channel value to the value defined by the property Reset value.

So instead you would type something like this:

if (Warning Code > 0) and (Warning Code <> 12) and (Warning Code <> 15) then
  QIncrease
endif

You can read more about it in the user manual, chapter 4, especially page 93 which talks about Qcode commands.
