The C-more HMI (human machine interface) is one of the best values in industrial HMI. Not only do you get competitive pricing but the ease of setup and use will save you even more.
In this video, it is detailed how to quickly import your DirectLogic PLC project tags from your Do-more Designer Software into your C-more HMI touch panel.
This video is part of the C-more setup videos that give direction on how to import tags from different platforms into the C-more Industrial HMI software. These are quick and easy HMI programming tutorials that help you to integrate your control system.
With the C-more HMI you can quickly integrate your DirectLogic project tags. Open up your project, in your DirectSoft programming software. Now, there is a caveat to this tag import. Only the addressing that has nicknames placed here will be exported in this process. So, if you want these addresses to export to your C-more HMI, you will need to place nicknames for them here. To create the export file, go to file, export and then element documentation. Select the C-more format option here. Browse to where you want to save these files to and then press Save. Open up the C-more software and use this start up wizard. Name your project, select your panel type, and under PLC protocol select either of these five protocols. If you are connecting using serial, you will select one of these 4 options, which will depend on the CPU you are using and what protocol the serial port is setup for. If you are connecting over ethernet using an ECOM module, you will use this protocol. I am going to continue this demonstration using the ethernet protocol. Click here on protocol setup and we need to define the IP address of the ECOM or ECOM100 module here. For the most part, these defaults will work for most systems. Once you are done, click OK and OK once again. That started your project, now let’s import the tags. There are two ways you can import the tags. You can go to file, import and then tag name database or open up tag name database from here and then select import. Select the file that we created earlier. Select the device that you are connecting these tags with. If you would like to append the tags names that you are importing, with text, place that here. If you would like to overwrite the existing tags, select this option. Once you have these options setup, select to import. My tags successfully imported, and I now can see them in the tag database. You can also select here and use the filter to display only the tags for this device. Now, that everything is imported, make sure to setup the IP address of the C-more HMI. Once that is done, send this project to the panel and start building you control screens. And that is just how easy it is to integrate your C-more with your DirectLogic CPU.
