I'm looking to find the normal operation life of iQan products.
For example, the MC3x and more specifically, the MD4 backlight.
Someone have an idea where I can find this information?
I have been a long time user of your product since Version 2.0. One of the thing I like is your constant search for improvement in your package. This also means that we have about once a month to update our software. Since I have 3 machines, That is 3 time 3 updates(Design/Simulate/Run). It is a bit time consuming and labor intensive.
Since we have now cloud based storage with local copy at least I do not have to suffer the Download time.
If I go to the forum, I can download a Complete package, but when I use the software update it only downloads the specific package. But I do not seem to find a method to access the specific package download page. Both Forum and Website direct us to the Complete package.
It would be nice to:
1) have access to a page to download the specific package. For Example, this morning I had just upgraded my field laptop to Iqan Design 4.07. I have to open the other two packages to download run and simulate. Downloading the complete package is counter productive since I have to re-enter the license number(I think?) but most specifically I have already use my
2) Instead of only upgrading the specific package may be the upgrade function could automatically offer to download the other package depending on your license type. alternatively this could be an offer to download the complete package if I do not have to re-enter the license again.
Once again this is only a suggestion and certainly not in the must have category. I will continue to upgrade because I know I can trust your product and want to make sure I have access to the latest and greatest.
Platform 4 - MD4
Is it possible to provide more information regarding CAN error reporting ?
For example "Critical CAN Error"
Can you information regarding the type of error that has been found ? For example
Summary: If the MD4 shuts down a CAN port due to a critical error then I just want to know exactly why.
4.04 IQAN Analyse - NI CAN Analyser.
The tool now reports CAN errors. Is there any more information available regarding the error frame encountered?
Could someone advise what ports and protocols IQAN software are using when connecting via Ethernet to MD4?
I new here, and new to the software platform, so hello to everyone. Although I am new to the IQAN platform I am very familiar with PLC programming and basic logic.
I am tasked with converting a bunch of MDL programs to MD4's (as we aren't going to be able to get any MDL's soon) and as I dive into this it seems like there should be a much easier way to do it.
Can someone do a quick write up of the most efficient way to complete this task?
Also it could be useful if we could also have the ability of downloading programs this way, although security could be an issue.
Might be dreaming, but if I could get either Myspace.com former webdesign abilities or Obsidianportal.com wiki design abilities that would be awesome. Would like to put up banners and backgrounds for my company along with links to my company website.
For the automatic reports, I want to be able to have the server login to the machines each day and try to extract some fuel usage and performance. Logging in with IQANrun is nice, but I want the machine and server to contact me.
I can setup text messages from the machine. So that is cool. However, some of my programs are maxed out in memory, and it would be nice to put the burden on the server instead of the controllers since I perceive that the server would be better at the job. Should be cheaper than adding a module for memory or something like that, though I could be wrong.
(some of my machines just have many options all in one program)
Ability to setup automatic reports on machine stats collected and distributed by the server
Ability to set backgrounds, banners, and general appearance for customers looking at their web portal
Ability to create wiki pages for the customer management of their machines
Some signals we are trying to log over a few minutes makes for huge files that are difficult to manipulate in Excel.
I would like to see the possibility to log parameters at 500ms, 1s, 10s, 30s intervals.
