Disable all DOUT open load detection

Michael Carlyle 3 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 2 years ago 16

As a feature request - can this be set in the channel to have a no open load errors option.  We have had many issues with this error coming up when the output is off when driving a load through a diode for example(another computer is also controlling this load as well).  Diesel Pre-heat for example which must work with the Iqan off or on.  I realize the output can be put in a function group and disabled - but it is definitely not intuitive and requires extra programming and memory etc.

Ability to label CAN buses, Vref, etc in the List view of a master module

Edward Polzin 6 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 6 years ago 1

I think it would be useful to be able to take the description text from the CAN bus, VRef, etc or add free text to the List view of a master module:

This would allow for clearer definition when sending to a wire harness builder or for troubleshooting.


One more colour for reference lines

Arno Heeren 6 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 2 years ago 3

Hi, today we have silver and red reference lines. Furthermore we have the possibility to show all or only the lines from a component. When I select a component, the associated lines are highlighted a little bit with a thicker line. But it is still hard to see, if you got a mesh like I have here below.

Wouldn't it be nice if we add a third colour to highlight the lines of the selected component?

re-introduce colors in tool bar

Since V5.0x the Lay-out is changed, like Windows-10, without any color, in my opinion it's not better!, please change it to the older version (see attachments)

Make log data available to the application and display pages

Gary Posey 6 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Jacob Meng 2 years ago 1

It would be a nice feature to make log data available to the application and display pages. For example, I like to use the logs to contain machine hours. This can include, engine hours, pump hours, motor hrs, valve hrs, fan hrs, filter dirty hrs, low grease hrs, number of starts, etc... Logs are good for storing the data, visible when you get the clone file c/w logs, with nice reset features.   However, this data is currently unavailable for use within the application control logics and display pages. Its current nice to see all of the machine hours in a common log group, but it would be nice to also display some select logs on the programmed pages for operator quick reference. As for use in the application, this data can be used to trigger conditioning message or have other functions.

An alternative solution to display machine hours on the log group and display pages would be to use timers in addition logs. However, these additional timers would result in duplicate and parallel logic to the logs, and is no perfect solution.

Adjust on Screen Reference Channel MD4

Joe 7 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 5 years ago 5

When adjusting a parameter on the MD4 adjust screen, can the reference channel for the adjust group be displayed? It would also be nice if individual adjust items could have their own reference channels rather than the entire group.

action selector for MD4 button

AxelC 9 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 2 years ago 5
I am making the same interface in two version, one on MD3 and one on MD4.

In the md4, I can't have an action selector on buttons, it is possible on the MD3.
Is is something forgotten on the MD4?

Option to disable MC4x DOUT Open Load detect

J C. Crow 4 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 8 months ago 9

I am using several DOUT channels on and MC43 and XC44 to drive LED lights. When we crank the engine or run the electric hydraulic pump, I get open load errors on these channels.  I already have undercurrent detection turned off on these outputs.  I am using IQAN Design This is a 12 V system. The LED light is a Grote BZ101-5, 16 W total power.  The channels are set up as a Digital Out HS. The pins used are MC43 C1-46, C1-48 and XC44 C2:49 and C2-50.

I have installed a 120 ohm pull down resistor in parallel with these lights to prevent the error.  This is a costly and undesirable way to fix this issue.  I am requesting an that the open load detection be software configurable to prevent these errors from occurring.
