Re: SCADA - UART Cal vs UART COmms system

Thanks Steve, I will have a play and see how it works... It would be interesting to see how difficult it would be to implement the equivalent functionality that you see in Microsoft PowerPoint or Microsoft Visio where you can layer different graphics on top of each other by using the "send to f...

Re: SCADA - UART Cal vs UART COmms system

Thanks Ben for the quick response....it’s very much appreciated

I will check out the UART mods and let you know...flasher is a nice to have but not mandatory....

I will give the 3D panel a go.....thanks for the advice

Re: SCADA - UART Cal vs UART COmms system

Thanks Ben, That would be great....is it possible to add flasher as well? No urgency, as I said earlier I was being lazy :wink: Btw I’m loving the SCADA feature...playing with all of the shapes and components...it there a way to layer components on top of each other and control the order?

SCADA - UART Cal vs UART COmms system

Hello matrix team, This is properly a dumb question however.... What is the rationale for using the UART Cal component for RS 232 SCADA vs using the UART comms system component as you would find in the embedded component list? The reason I ask is that the UART comms systems component manages TX/RX o...

Re: problem simulator

As a suggestion .. check how much ram your colleagues PC has....your machine has 4GB, it might be a little light on, especially as it looks like your running it pretty hard with all of the additional resources... Check how much free MEM you have with fc and simulation running....also check your virt...

Circular buffer - FlushBuffer command

Gents,

A quick one on the circular buffer. Does the FlushBuffer command simulate?

It appears not to do anything to the Circular buffer tab information in the console. Is this normal?

Re: GPS component mistake?

Hi, Sounds like a GPS problem rather than a coding/component problem. As a suggestion, check the number of satellites that your GPS device can see...I think you need at least 8 to get a solid reference for longitude. Sometimes the GPS device can not see a wide enough arc of the sky, I often use an e...

Re: Help understanding USART component please

I agree Martin.....simulation Of rx Int would be very helpful...

One way I have done it in past projects is to create a macro to read the rx buffer and calling it with a simulation icon from the main loop...this way it does not impact compiled code...

Re: One-wire

ScanBus and Busreset are functions used to read the devices on the bus. My program is much more simplistic in terms of function, however it does allow you to trim the timings of the pulses..I found that some devices had a norrow pulse timing tolerance therefore I had to adjust the timings. Make sense?

Hi Ben,

I have tested the ESP 12 S and the BL 0136 components and they are working great – thanks again for your assistance on this..

I'm sure the others are okay, but I will test them in the next 48 hours.

Once again thanks for the great support
