MD4 flip - rotate display 180 to mount upside down

CMTechNZ 2 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 2 months ago 7

Is it possible to mount the display upside down so the plugs are at the bottom of the unit? It is for a MD4 7" display.

Thanks

DM1 Messages

Mark Walser 3 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Chris Litwin 2 months ago 8

Has there been any thought for creating a block the just decodes the DM1 messages and put them into an array or other object.  this could then be used to display the SPN, FMI, and occurrence without having to decode each message and display it.  This would be very useful based on the number of DM1 error code that need to be decoded.

  There are other software packages that have create block to handle this for both DM1 and DM2 messages.  They have incorporated an up/down scroll to scroll thru the faults held in a buffer.  You can also clear this buffer but would reload if the engine or other device sends another packet of faults.  It also handle all of the status lights that would need to displayed along with any flashing that would be required.

Machine state. Parameter state as enumerated values???

Jean-Marc Zanni 5 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 2 months ago 5

I function expression, we can compare the parameter state or state machine to an integer value. problem with this is that you re-arrange the states or add a state, you have update all the values where ever you created the logic
Would it be possible to use the different parameter states as an enumerated value so that the logic can be:
a) clearer
b) easier to maintain

Vector Images

Joe 3 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 1 year ago 5

It would be so nice if we could load and resize vector images (.svg) directly on the screen in the design environment.  This would make screen layout much faster.

Version 5 I/O Display

Joe 3 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Ulrik Zakariasson (Software development) 3 years ago 13

Showing the pin connections on the module screen in Version 5 is really nice.  However, not showing all of the available I/O makes it difficult to see how pins are shared between different channel types. For example, you may not realize that you could simply move a DOUT to a different channel assignment (i.e. DOUT:F rather than DOUT:I) to allow for an additional COUT that shares a pin assignment with DOUT:I (ref XA2 module).  Is it possible to have the option to show all the I/O like before, but keep the pin connections displayed?

MC4x pin descriptions

Rick 4 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 2 years ago 2

Adapting the MC4x modules on our first machines now, we had quite a struggle with the various pin characteristics (DIN Pull-up / Down, A15/17 suitable for relays on the MC3, et cetera). Such details can be found in the Specs of course, but it would be quicker & easier if we can see such details in IQAN Design, for example in the bottom-right corner when clicking an in- or output pin.

Adjust on Screen Reference Channel MD4

Joe 4 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 2 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.

Have Function Group Input names default to match the name of the respective input channel

Forrest 4 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Ulrik Zakariasson (Software development) 3 years ago 4

I am doing a bunch with functional groups in the latest project to clean things up a bit, and it is annoying to have to individually name/rename each of the FGIs, especially when I change the name of the source and then "have to" rename it again in every Funtional Group where it shows up.
Maybe have a box to check to override the default name strategy for the times someone might want another name used.

New IQAN-MD4 demo pages

The latest IQANdesign versions include some new demo pages for the IQAN-MD4-7. The pages are built on the Fork Lift application example, and illustrate some useful techniques, like working with transparency.

Fork Lift, "Industrial" theme:




Fork Lift, "High Tech" theme:


Fork Lift, "Classic" theme:


The pages were made by an industrial designer. He worked in Illustrator/Photoshop to make the graphical design elements, and then used them to build the HMI in IQANdesign. He offers his services to IQAN users, we can provide the contact details.

These are the files:
My Documents\IQAN Files\Examples\Fork lift\Fork lift.ida3
My Documents\IQAN Files\Examples\Fork lift\Classic.ids3
My Documents\IQAN Files\Examples\Fork lift\HighTech.ids3

Classic and HighTech use the same application as in Fork lift, but with different look and feel. They are stripped project files, but can be opened in IQANdesign in the same way as a normal ida3 file. Just select the correct file type in the open dialog, or double-click the file in Windows Explorer.

Diagnostic Entries for application

David Freeman 5 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Ulrik Zakariasson (Software development) 4 years ago 5
Currently the only way to populate the diagnostics in an application is to create an spn for each diagnostic. In some applications we have 500-600 diagnostics. Is the a way we could populate and spn table with a spreadsheet or txt file
