Field application update
How to make updates to your live systems
- Add a new device as PD 688 to your project assembly and give it a proper name
- Connect the new PD 688 to the desired network, e.g. IP
- Add a visualization for the Configurator (PD_3184-nn - View_for_Configurator) as a Guest view for the new PD 688
- Insert the right serial number for the new PD 688 in your VIGO6 project
- Build the project
- Download the Customware to the PD 688 and see that the download screen appears on the PD 688
- Copy the ‘Output’ folder from the project folder in your VIGO6 library to a SD card. The ‘Output’ folder must be placed in the root of the SD card and the name shall be ‘Output’.
- Insert the SD card in the PD 688
Tips on the COPP hardware modules and peripherals
- be connected via USB
- understand ESC/POS command format
IT and Support
When something does not work, look here
- Minimum 3,6 GHz CPU
- Minimum 6 GB RAM
- A SSD-disk
- In VIGO6 you build (and test) a functionality (a component) one time and can use it over and over. No copy paste - you just add the component to your assembly.
- In VIGO6 you have a lot of ready-made components that you can use to construct your project. Eg pump- valve and flow-meter components.
- In VIGO6, the visualisation is tied to a component or assembly, and can be reused over and over.
- In VIGO6, you have better options for maintenance of exsting systems. There are no configurations done directly on the modules (as was the case in VIGO5), so when you locate your project for the system, you know what is running, can make the required updates and then build and download the new program and you are up-and running.
- In VIGO6 a faulty module can be replaced on-the-fly. You simply remove the faulty module and plug in a new one, type in the Serial Number of the new module and you are back in business.
Tips and tricks on building awesome visualisations for your components and assemblies
This can be done in VIGO6 via a pre-built component.
- they take up space, and some visualizations will need to utilize every available pixel for other purposes J
- if a view is set as “non closeable” it makes no sense to have a close button on it.
