What is Project Simulation?
This feature allows you to simulate, interact, navigate and debug an entire project right on your PC, before you transfer it to the panel. To be precise, it ensures that your project looks and operates exactly the same way you intended. How to Interact with the Objects? On the PC you will have to click on the objects, as you touch/ press them on the panel. How to Test the functionality of the Objects? By changing the tag values of the objects and view their responses. Tag values can be changed either in the tag list or in the separate
Distortion free sizing of objects
The uWin08 Programming Editor has a patent pending feature that saves the programmer from having to size a bitmap in another photo editing software, and then bring it onto the screen. You can size an object whichever way you want it within the uWin08 Programming Editor itself. It saves you the headache of going back and forth between two software programs.
Now with Built-in Photo Editor at no extra cost!
The uWin 08 programming editor has raised the bar further in HMI software by including an exclusive, advanced, patent pending, bitmap photo editor that allows any bitmap being imported (such as from the 4000 symbols library) to be edited almost like “Photoshop” within the uWin 08 Software itself. It eliminates the need to : 1. Have “Photoshop” or “MSPaint” program installed on your computer 2. Bring the bitmap into “Photoshop”, edit it and then import it back to the HMI program
Instant Syntax Checking
The uWin08 software is unique in that, it checks the address syntax of all the PLCs and PLC Networks supported, before the address is allowed to be entered. This feature saves a tremendous amount of time in implementing an HMI PLC Project. You find you errors at the time of making the error not when you are finished and saving or downloading the project.
Highlight unused Tags
The Tags in the uWin08 Software can easily be sorted by name, by type and by PLC address. On top of that you can high-light unused tags in yellow to make it simple for the programmer to manage his/her project.
Import / Export of Tag Databases
uWin08 programming software allows both import and export of tag database from and to an X-cel sheet. This saves a tremendous amount of time when developing PLC software using the same tag names.
With 128 available colors for an object’s text, background, label and more, making an object stand out or look as part of an organized grouping or category is easier than ever.
Allow only authorized users or certain groups the appropriate level of access with password protection, as shown above.
Type in the tagname and then right click on the name you just typed. This will bring up the dialog box to the right, to enter the appropriate PLC address string and data type, which determines how the object links to the PLC.
Nine Different Languages
With Toughpanel’s multiple language capabilites, you can now program the text for Panel components in up to 9-different languages. This means English reading operators can work with the panel in English, while the Spanish proficient operators can work in the Spanish language on the same panel. Also, with up to 9 different languages, OEMs exporting to other countries can develop programs to cover many of the commonly used languages.
