partly locking of application in IQAN design

Martin 4 years ago 0


we have a costumer, which would like to make an CAN-Interface for different trucks by himself.

We would like to allow this only, if we can lock in our application all things, except CAN-Interface Module for Truck.

I have tried to make some locks in the application, but this is not possible as I needed. For example I cannot lock the Menu.

Is there a possibility to lock everything, except one software module?
If not, can you program something for us?


MC3 APP In Problem

Kevin Arscott 4 years ago • updated by Ulrik Zakariasson (Software development) 4 years ago 3

I have a problem with a system that uses APP in and out between three modules, one MD4, two MC3. I have found that one MC3 does not appear to be receiving APPIN's. When I monitor the modules in IQAN Run, all modules appear to be talking successfully. When I look at IQAN Design the APPIN's on the module that's faulting says Error, Timeout and its red not green. On the module that's sending the APPOUT, the function block APPOUT is green and OK. Its almost as if the modules are not starting at the same time and the timeout for the first APP in to be received is being reached?

Is there any way of finding out more information about this error?

The machine was working OK for some time and it just happened randomly and now im unable to recover the machine. We also have other machines running this software and same software version and it appears OK.

I have extended the 50ms cycle time to 100ms,on all three modules with no success. Is there any reason why this could have happened? Running Design 3.19.9.

Can Not open two application the same time

Andy Pauly 3 days ago • updated 3 days ago 2


I have to work with IQANdesign5.04 and IQANdesign6. Both software are installed on my computer. Before I could open two application the same time by open IQANdesign and open a second application by just double clicking on windows explorer. 

Function groups, channels etc. could be easly moved by cut and past from one application to the other.

Regarding th CM0504 module. What is the time to trip for the 25A current limit? If a motor is powered and spikes above 25A, will cause the module to fault? And will it recover?

We a lot of machines out in the field that still has MDM's that were programmed with the old IQAN develop. Our company is upgrading all of our laptops to Windows 10, am I going to have issues with any of the software for the older machines? We use design 2.63 on a lot of machines and develop on a smaller amount. Any insight into what will work and what won't would be a great help.  


G11 problem

Ed Schippers 2 months ago • updated 2 months ago 4


I'm having trouble connecting the G11 to a MD4.

the bus i use is B, wiring checked, resistors checked.

security setting on always allow

but still no contact whith the G11

the status LED sends waiting signal

i made a can reading but it looks like that there is no reaction from the G11 because there is no difference in date when the G11 is disconnected

the last time i used this G11 is about 2, 2.5 years ago, is it possible that it does not work with design 5?

or is it just broken?

Is there a way to manually reboot an MD4?  Somehow the program is stuck on the start up page and will not proceed to operational pages.

CM0504 Software

I am looking into using the CM0504 High Current Controller Module. The Users guide says that there is a diagnostic tool that is used to configure it. Where can I find that software?
