Unformatted text preview: MFET 374 4/1/2010 Using FactoryTalk View 1 Using FactoryTalk View MFET 374 4/1/10 1 Using FactoryTalk View Topics Terminology and concepts Setting up communications Important system settings Using Application Manager Testing and running a project Working with tags Tips and suggestions Using FactoryTalk View 2 An HMI example MFET 374 4/1/2010 Using FactoryTalk View 2 Terminology and Concepts Using FactoryTalk View 3 FactoryTalk View (FTV) Machine Edition (ME) Two major components: FTV Studio This component is the development environment This component is the development environment. FTV Studio is used to create and test applications using a computer running Windows XP. FTV ME Station This is the run time component. FTV ME Station executes .MER files (MER = Machine Edition Runtime) Comes preloaded on PanelView Plus terminals and VersaView CE terminals. Is available for a computer running Windows XP. 4 Using FactoryTalk View MFET 374 4/1/2010 Using FactoryTalk View 3 VersaView Terminals Each dropline has a VersaView CE 1500H computer Th V Vi Wi d CE The VersaView runs Windows CE. The Windows CE desktop is available to the user. FTV ME Station is loaded on each VersaView Password: 1500-xx (where xx is the two digit dropline number) 5 Using FactoryTalk View IP Addressing Scheme at the Conveyor Use the following scheme: 192 168 1 xy 192.168.1.xy x = The dropline number y = The device (PLC = 5, VersaView = 7) 6 Using FactoryTalk View MFET 374 4/1/2010 Using FactoryTalk View 4 MER Files FTV ME Station runs .MER files. .MER files can be run on your standard XP computer or: A PanelView Plus (Windows CE is no exposed A PanelView Plus (Windows CE is not exposed) A VersaView CE computer (Windows CE is exposed) Your HMI project must be converted into an equivalent MER file. By default, .MER files are stored here: Using FactoryTalk View 7 MER Files How do you create a .MER file? When should you create a .MER file? Create the .MER file after you have fully tested your HMI application on the Windows XP development computer and are ready to deploy your HMI onto the target device. Select this Using FactoryTalk View 8 The target device can be a computer running Windows XP, or A PanelView Plus, or A VersaView CE computer The target device which runs the .MER file must have FTV ME Station loaded on it. MFET 374 4/1/2010 Using FactoryTalk View 5 Basic procedure: 1) Download your PLC program and place the PLC in the run mode. 2) Setup communications (both Local and Target tabs). 3) Create a main screen and put a shutdown button on it....
