EcoStruxure Operator Terminal Expert V3 dynamic objects

Is it possible to create dynamic groups or contents that accept variables as parameters in EOTE? Those variables would change visibilities, or even colors of items, e.g. circuit breaker open-closed states, motor run or stop states.

Hello Roland,

If you group several object you could change the visibility of this group via one variabel or via script.

You must only add a variabel at the visibile attribut. 

If you want to change colours globally in your project you have the possibility to work with variabels instead of constances.

If you use a variabel for a colour. You could use a global script which defines the value of this variabel in combination with the status of your PLC program. In that case you could easiely globaly adapt objects.

Re: EcoStruxure Operator Terminal Expert V3 dynamic objects

Hello @gyorgy_roland_c ,

 

Using EcoStruxure Operator Terminal Expert v3.2 SP1 or earlier parameters are not supported.   Instead, please use an array and change the index of the array.

 

For example, you can have 1 or more custom arrays of the items you need to work with:

 

  • MyArray[0] = PLC 1, tagname/address = Torque
  • MyArray[1] = PLC 2, tagname/address = Torque
  • MyArray[2] = PLC 1, tagname/address = Speed
  • MyArray[3] = PLC 2, tagname/address = Speed

 

Create an integer tag called, MyIndex

 

Within the switch, lamp, visibility  etc. use = MyArray[MyIndex]

 

Now when you change the value of MyIndex you can switch between different PLCs and tagnames/addresses.

 

If you require a specific project example please respond with your specific need and I can develop one for you.
