Note: If a license is not available, click “OK” to
enter the demo mode which offers 2 hours for
development and runtime environment.
Fig. 10 Create a new I/O connection
Create a new device by clicking on “COM1” under “Device”
directory and double clicking the “New…” icon at the top left of
the Content Display Area as Fig. 10 shown, and get the device
configuration wizard window as Fig. 11 shown.
Let’s use simulate PLC for this example. It is provided by
WellinTech to generate simulation data for customers.
Fig. 11 Device Configuration Wizard-1
1. Expend “PLC” and choose “WELLINCONTROL->Simulate PLC->COM”, click “Next” to continue the
configuration. (See Fig. 12);
2. Input a valid name for this “device”, “simulator” for example. (See Fig. 13);

3. Choose “COM1” or other COM ports as a channel, but it won’t use the true COM port unless the
device is connected with PC via serial ports.
Click “Next” to continue. (See Fig. 14);
4. Fill in the address for the device. Input any number for simulate PLC, 0 for example. See Fig. 15);

Fig. 15 Device Configuration Wizard-4
5. For the other steps, use the default settings, and click “Finish” to complete the configuration. The
new I/O connection is shown as Fig. 16.
Step3: Create a tag under “Tag Dictionary”
Tags in the projects can be used to get values from
hardware devices.
They also can be internal variables
used in making the picture.
To create a new tag inside
the project, expand “Database”, and select the “Tagname
Dictionary”. Double click the “New…” at the bottom of

the tag list, or right click the “New…” to create a new tag. See Fig. 17 and Fig. 18.
Fig. 17 Create a new tag using “New…”
Fig. 18 Create a new tag using right click menu
Several settings are needed to define a tag: (See Fig.
Tag name:
A valid name is needed;
Choose the data type from the drop-down
For I/O tags, choose “simulator” from the
drop-down list as the device setting;
Under register from the drop-down list,
choose “INCREA” for example, and add an address,
such as “INCREA100”; “Data Type” should be
“SHORT” for such registers.
Click “OK” to complete the tag definition.

“Pictures” are used to display data and interact
with the user.
To create a new picture in “TouchExplorer”,
expand “File” and choose “Picture”, then double
click the “New…” icon at the top left of the
Content Display Area, as Fig. 21 shows, or switch
to the “Make” environment to create the picture.
Fig. 21 Create a new picture in the project
After double clicking “New…” you will see a
picture properties setting window as in Fig.
Enter a valid name for the new
picture, such as “FirstPicture”;
Set “Dimension” as shown;
Set “Style” as shown;
Click “OK” to complete the process.
Step5: Draw graphics on the new picture
Fig. 22 Configure the properties of the picture
After creating the picture, we need to create a graphic object to show the data from “Simulate PLC”.
KingView has a tool box to help you to make the graphics. You can also use the genius in the gallery to
easily make the graphics. See Fig. 23.
1. From “TouchExplorer”, open the genius wizard by selecting “Open Wizard” from the wizard
drop-down menu or pressing F2; See Fig. 23.
2. Choose the Genius from gallery and double-click to insert it onto the picture. Resize it as needed.
Follow the steps to insert the following Geniuses onto the new picture. See Fig. 24-27.

3. Place the genius on the picture as shown in Fig. 28.
4. Connect “Pipe” to the tanks and valves such as Fig. 28 shown.
Right click the pipe and choose
“Pipe Property” to configure it. See Fig. 29 and Fig. 30.
5. Put “Text” on the picture as shown in Fig. 28.
If you want to change the text font, select the text
and click menu “Tool->Font” to configure the font style as needed.
Step6: Add animations to output the value of the
Normally, double click the graphics on the picture, and
then you can get the animation configuration window.
Configure the animations with existing tags. Be sure
the tag you choose matches with the animation.
1. Double click “Raw Oil Tank”, and configure the
animation using tag “RawTank”;
(See Fig. 31,

2. Configure the other tanks “Catalyst Tank” and “Refined Oil Tank” using the corresponding tags;
3. Double click “Valve1”. Configure its animation using tag “Valve1” as Fig. 33;
4. Configure the other valves “Valve2” and “Valve3” using the corresponding tags;
5. Double click the pipe which connects 2 tanks through “Valve1”, and check the flow box and set the
condition to be “Valve1*10”. See Fig. 34;
6. Double click the other 2 pipes and configure them as above with “Valve2*10” and “Valve3*10”.

Step7: Save and run the project
After configuring the animations for the graphics, save the project by selecting “File-> Save all pictures”.
Close the graphics development, and switch back to “TouchExplorer”. Double click “Set TouchView” on
the left, and choose the “Main Picture Setting” tab. Choose a picture as the default picture for the
runtime environment, so that this picture is shown when runtime system starts. See Fig. 35.
