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 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 not 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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
