    Q. Print-out feature does not operate properly on CIMON-X. 


      

          

    A. Print option must be initialized in the file”DesignEi.dat” of project folder.     

          

     

     

    “DesignEi.dat” file includes an initial setting information about printer, page position and page size. When printer name in file “DesignEi.dat” does not match with printer name of PC, this can cause an error with printing-out of CIMON-X.   

               

     

    1. Go to SCADA project folder, and open a file “DesignEi.dat” with Notepad. 

      

     

    2. Delete the highlighted two lines of print option. 

       

        

    3.  Run a project again, and execute the printing feature by using commands “HardCopy()” or “HardCopyEx”

  • Q: When specified data value of PLC is changed, designated page will be opened.  

       How can I do this? 

     

    A: There are several ways to make page open and close. 

        Here is one of examples. 

     

     

    Page open according to PLC value 

    Xpanel Designer ? Make new project. 

    [Tools]  [Database]  Make analog tag as below. 

             Example : ANA_00 (Virtual tag) 

     

     

    Make pages. 

             Example : Page1 of 3 pages. 

     

     

    Click [Tools]  [Alarms] and then click “Add” to register tag name, condition and alarm action. 

             Example: PAGE1 will be opened when ANA_00 = 0. 

     

     

    There are total 3 pages (open page) registered. 

     

    In order to check that designated page opens properly, run Simulator. 

    Click [Tools]  [Run Simulator] 

      

    When tag value of ANA_00 is “0”, Page 1 is opened. 

     

     

    When tag value of ANA_00 is “2”, Page 3 is opened.

    Q: How to use Initialization program (COLD and HOT Start) 


      


    A: It is used to initialize data and parameter before getting started on scan program again. 


     


    [COLD] 



     


     


    PLC runs Initialization program once when CPU is turned to RUN mode or power ON. 


    It makes all data value “0” except latch memory and initialize other data or device. 


      


    [HOT] 



     


     


    PLC runs Initialization program once if CPU is turned to RUN mode or power ON out of designed time period. It maintains data value and runs scan program after Initialization program. 


    In order to use Initialization program (HOT), you have to select “Enable” Hot Restart at PLC Parameter as below picture. 


     



     


     


    Hot Restart   


    If black out occurs when PLC is running, Hot Restart recovers all PLC data and parameter status before black out. Therefore, PLC achieves continuity of program running. 


      


    In order to finish Initialization program, you have to use “INITEND” instruction as below. 



     


     


    See attached manual for more details.
