UTICOR's brand new Tough Panel HMI operator interface software has been revised and updated and includes an even simpler, intuitive layout, with even more features and functionality than before. No training manual, no class room, self learn in less than 30 minutes!
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
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.
