    Kollmorgen Visualization Builder (KVB) software has built in alarm features. Users can easily determine when certain values of tags will raise alarms, how they are displayed on the HMI, how they can be cleared, how users can view a history of past alarms, and if text messages or emails should be sent along with certain alarms. The video embedded below goes through the basics of setting alarms and options for how they are viewed on Kollmorgen AKI HMI panels.

    New features include TCP/IP Function Blocks, BBH FSoE Master + SafePLC with KAS-IDE and AKD2G w/ SMM, KAS IDE-WorkBench Improvements, new File Management functions, DriveParamStrRead, Multi-select PDO objects, new axis parameter to read PLCopen user units, and more!

    The video embedded below goes through how to add security features with Kollmorgen Visualization Builder (KVB). Shows how to create accounts with different levels of security and how to make objects in HMI screens either hidden or disabled unless you login to a certain level of security

    Video embedded below shows how to use the Recipe feature built into KVB software to change the value of multiple tags all at once. You can create the recipe ahead of time through spreadsheet views in KVB software, or create new/modify existing recipes on the HMI panel.
    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.
