Re: Internet connectivity ESP8266 and ESP32

Hey Ben, I would definitely be interested in this component... it would be great for IOT sensors on my bee hives.. presently I’m using a micro plus wifi board.. it would be gr8 to only have to use the one unit and have control of the I/O Can the ESP 32 support I2C native?.. I’m using a 24bit ADc for...

It does work properly with ICD....btw does the console for example circular buff...

BL0136 - Component issue

Hi Ben, I have been doing some more testing on the BL0136 component... In addition to the simulation issue that I described in a previous post https://www.matrixtsl.com/mmforums/viewtopic.php?f=78&t=20260 , I found another odd problem. When requesting the IP address using the CheckTCPServerIP macro ...

Import multiple macros

Gentlemen, Would be possible to add an additional function to the import macro routine please. At present you have to import macros one at a time - which as you can understand is very time-consuming when you have 50 macros to import. Would it be possible to select numerous macros from a folder and b...

FC 8 Helper tool

Gentlemen,

I was playing around with the 'component helper" tool today.. In the past I found it very useful as a lookup guide for the device/board/block pins

It's not a high priority – it would be great if you could include all of E–block 2 - boards...

Many thanks

Re: ESP8266 - EB069 component + BL0136 + ESP 12s

Hi Ben, I gave the be BL0136 (ESP – 12 S) component a run today. It appears to work quite well in combination with BL0032–1 and performs most of the functions well. As I mentioned in my previous post the simulation using the external COM port injector is also broken on this component as well. It app...

Hi Ben, Checked the component - it still seems to not receive the return data from the device. I am using the com injector - see properties attached...

Hi Steve,

Please don't remove this feature... I use the all the time, especially with case statements to jump out of the loop - it's great for MIAC and menus...

Having said that are you proposing an alternative?
