Watch a video which shows how to add multiple languages inside one project in the Kollmorgen Visualization Builder (KVB) software. Using a built-in action, the user can change all the strings in an HMI project at once from one language to another. This is helpful as only a single project has to be maintained, no matter where in the world it might be shipped.

Dear Expert,

Currently we have lot of MMC -A4 Plus (standalone) connected to HMI (Schneider) using Ethernet. Somehow the MMC Ethernet module is fail (this is the 3rd times in last 4 month). Sadly we no Ethernet module left in the warehouse. 

We have user port in MMC not in use, this can be used as serial communication to our HMI. In HMI I can configure the serial communication, but in MMC side I have no clue. I have very limited experiance with PicPro and also limited document to get learn.

Please advice

regards

Controlling AKD drives with HMI through Modbus TCP is easy but different panels need different adjustments.This article will help you in commissioning systems where you are using an EXOR Jmobile HMI panel and AKD drives.

After selecting the Modbus TCP protocol, you must add your AKD drive's IP address. Additionally, you should change the other settings to match, as is seen in the following screenshot.

This page covers the new features, changes, defect fixes, and known issues in an KVB (Kollmorgen Visualization Builder) software release. KVB is a separate software package that is integrated with the KAS (Kollmorgen Automation Suite) IDE and Runtime software.

Information contained in this release note is subject to change.

With KVB, recipe data will get lost when adding/removing tags or changing data types on tags (variables). The following procedure outlines how to save the data for use with the changed layout:

The following is based on what was learned and worked through phone and WebEx support. The conventions in this application note cannot be guaranteed to work with your hardware model or software version. We cannot supply a sample HMI project.

The General MODBUS TCP Master is selected for the driver and the target AKD IP Address is selected. This will need to match your target drive’s IP address. Port No. 502 is the standard port# for Modbus TCP.

A recipe can be used in an HMI program to store and select groups of data to be used without having to enter the data each time it is used.  It is easy to create a recipe in KVB by clicking on Insert / Recipe and give the recipe a name. 

A recipe consists of Items and Data.  Each recipe item has a name (any name you want) and a tag.  You can add as many Items to the recipe as needed.  The data (or Runtime Data) consists of groups of tag values.  These groups are called "Runtime Recipe Titles".  Each Runtime Recipe Title contains user defined values for each tag associated with the recipe.  The purpose of the recipe is to allow the user to select and use the data in each Runtime Recipe Title as needed.
