HMI configuration software gets upgrade for alarms, recipes, math, tag logic
AutomationDirect’s C-more HMI configuration software version 6.0 offers alarm and recipe features, additional math and tag logic, and improved Microsoft Windows compatibility. Version 6.0 is compatible with all previous C-more projects. Features include new menu options, customizable toolbars, updated graphics, and more to provide improved ease of use.
Tag combinations added to the event manager allow for simple logic with multiple events. Users can combine up to four different tags to trigger actions based on logical results, going beyond simple alarm and message functions. The easy-to-use event manager allows actions to be taken on a screen change, a set date or time, a single tag status or value, and now on a combination of tag status or values. Math functions add more computing power to the project. Create custom formulas with constants or tag values or use the math keypad which provides access to simple and complex operations including log, sine, and square root. An enhanced alarm list offers more options for alarm customization and new alarm filters allow for dedicated alarm summaries.
The alarm list object allows operator interaction with alarms that have occurred and allows operators to view, confirm or clear the alarms. Alarms can include specific messages with embedded PLC tag data, as well as, date and time information for the alarm status.
