Preface
Preface
Thank you for buying MT5000 and MT4000 series industrial embedded Human-Machine Interface
(hereinafter referred to as “HMI”) products.
HMI is a two-way communication bridge between an operator and a machine. A user can combine
characters, buttons, figures and numerals to process or monitor, manage and deal with the
multifunctional display screen which may display ever-changing information anytime. With the
rapid development of the mechanical equipment, old operation interfaces can only be operated by
skilled service-trained professionals, and furthermore, the operation is difficult and the working
efficiency can not be improved. However, the application of the HMI can make clear indication and
inform the operator of the current conditions of the machine so that the operation will be simple
and visual, misoperations can be reduced, and even a new operator can operate the entire
machine easily. Furthermore, the use of the HMI can also implement standard and simple cabling
of a machine, and meanwhile the number of I/O points necessary for the PLC (Programmable
Logic Controller) can be reduced, and the added value of the entire set of equipment can be
relatively improved due to the compact size and high performance of the control panel at the same
time when the production cost is reduced.
As a new kind of HMI, touch screen has attracted wide attention since its emergence. With its
simplicity, operational convenience, powerful function and excellent stability, it is applicable to
industrial environments, and even can find wide application in our daily life. For example,
automatic parking equipment, automatic car washer, roller-bridge lifting and hoisting control,
production line monitoring & control, or even intelligent building management, conference room
audible/visual control, and temperature adjustment.
With the rapid development of the science and technology, more and more machines and field
operations need the use of HMIs. The powerful function of PLC and the complicated data
processing also call for the emergence of a convenient matching HMI. The development of touch
screen is undoubtedly a great innovation in the automation field in the 21st century.
MT5000 and MT4000 are a brand-new generation of industrial embedded touch screen HMIs, with
the following features:
– Embedded RISC CPU featuring high speed and low power consumption

1.2 Interface Diagram
The COM0/COM1 ports in MT5000 and MT4000 can be connected to a PC or a PLC. The
MT5000 and MT4000 have very powerful communication capability. The MT5000 provides one
Ethernet interface (the MT4000 does not have any Ethernet interface), one USB interface, one
print interface, and two serial ports). Therefore, the MT5000 and MT4000 are capable of
communications with most devices with communication capabilities. Thus, it can be seen that the
MT5000 and MT4000 have wide applications. These interfaces will be described one by one in the
following sections:
1.2.1 Serial Ports
Presently the MT5000/4000 has two serial ports, marked COM0 and COM1.
The two ports are respectively male and female connectors for the convenience of differentiation.
The difference between their pins lies in PIN 7 and PIN 8.
COM0 is a 9-pin male connector, with the pinout definition as follows:

1.2.2
Ethernet Interface
The MT5000 (MT4000 does not have any Ethernet interface) has an adaptive 10M/100M network
interface which can implement such functions as program download, online simulation and
interconnection of multiple devices.
With the use of the Ethernet, we can conduct the following operations:
(1)
Downloading programs from a PC to the HMI: The download is much faster than
download through an RS232 or USB port;
(2)
Implementing networking and interconnection of multiple HMIs;
(3)
Implementing communications between the HMI and field equipment.
The settings of the Ethernet interface are as follows:
(1) In the Project Window, double click the HMI icon, and the following dialog box appears:
(2) Set the IP Address and Port Number. Note that the IP addresses over the same network
10
Chapter 1
Installation of EV5000
should not be the same.
(3) After saving the compilation, download the IP address of the HMI through the serial port or
USB port. After download, the IP address on the screen will change to the IP address set in the
above figure.
(4) If the Ethernet interface is used to download the program, the IP address should be set to be
different from that of the PC. To modify the IP address, you may turn the two DIP switches in the
rear of the touch screen to “ON”, and then reset the HMI to enter the built-in SETUP window.
(5) Click Options in the Tools menu, open the compilation download option, select Ethernet for
the Download Device, and set the IP Address and Port of the touch screen.
11
Chapter 1
Installation of EV5000
Note: After project download, the IP address of the screen will automatically change to
the IP address set in the HMI Properties window. If the IP address set in the HMI Properties
interface is inconsistent with that set in the Compilation Download Options window, download
by use of the old IP address will fail. In this case, it is necessary to adjust the IP address in
Compilation Download Options window, or enter the SETUP state to modify the current IP
address of the touch screen.
1.2.3 Printer Interface
The MT5000 series and the MT4400T/MT4500T series provide a printer interface. The interface
setting is the same as a PC interface. The MT4300 series provides a 15-pin print interface.
Parallel Print Port (15-pin D-SUB Female Connector)
The user can print window, events, texts and bitmaps online.

Chapter 3 Description of the eV5000 Software
3.6 Component List Window
Select Component List Window under the View menu to open the Component List Window.
The window shows the information of all parts used in the project, including HMI panel number,
configuration frame number, part number, input PLC number, type of input address, input address,
output PLC number, type of output address and output address. Double click an entry will lead to
the configuration frame where the part is.
3.7 Offline Simulation
The EV5000 provides offline simulation function. During offline simulation, the program does not
accquire data from the PLC, but only read data from the local address. Therefore, all data
displayed on the configuration windows are static data. With the offline simulation, the user can
conveniently preview the configuration effect, without the need to download the program to the
touch screen every time. Therefore, lots of time for downloading is saved.
Select Offline Simulation in the Tools menu, or click the
appears:
66
icon, the following dialog box
Chapter 3 Description of the eV5000 Software
Select an HMI to be simulated, and click Simulate, the offline simulation screen of the selected
HMI panel appears.
3.8 Online Simulation
The EV5000 provides online simulation operation. With the online simulator, a project can be
simulated on the PC and the configuration simulation screen acts as the actual panel. The
simulator exchange data with the PLC (via MT4000/5000 HMI panel connected to the PC in the
indirect mode). The data displayed on the simulator screen is the actual data from the PLC
registers. Using online simulator when debugging the configuration project can save much time for
downloading. The online simulation function has two modes: direct and indirect, which will be
explained in detail in the following paragraphs.
3.8.1 Direct Online Simulation
In direct online simulation mode, the PLC is directly connected to the serial port of PC running the
simulator. Its merit is that the PLC data can be obtained dynamically, without the transfer and
possible delay of the HMI panel. The user can even create and evaluate the configuration project
without an actual panel on hand, which can save the cost for a potential client who just want to try
before purchasing. The shortcoming is that only the PLC with an RS232 interface can be used in
this mode. To debug the PLC with an RS485 interface, an RS232-to-485/422 interface convertor is
required.
Note:
1.
The maxim test time for the direct online simulation is 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, the
system will prompt “simulation timeout, please simulate again”, and the simulator will
shutdown automatically.
67
Chapter 3 Description of the eV5000 Software
2.
Only the RS232 communication mode can be used for direct online simulation.After the
compiling configuration project and establishing the physical connection between PLC and
PC, click the
button, the following dialog box appears:
Select the touch panel to simulate, select the COM ID of the computer to be connected to the PLC,
and click [Simulate] to start direct online simulation.
Note: Use the programming cable of PLC to connect PLC and PC and perform the simulation.
3.8.2 Indirect Online Simulation
In indirect online simulation mode, the simulator exchanges data with the PLC via the HMI panel
connected to PC. The simulation screen acts as the actual panel, clicking on the screen is the
same as touching the real panel. With indirect online simulator, lots of time for downloading is
saved.The user have to have the proper panel to perform the simulation. Connect the panel to PC
with USB cable or MT4000/5000 downloading cable or Ethernet cable. Connect the PLC to the
panel with the required communication cable. For more information about the communication
cable, refer to chapter 14.
After the compiling the project and connecting the PLC, HMI panel and PC properly, click the
button, the following dialog box appears:
68
Chapter 3 Description of the eV5000 Software
Select an HMI to be simulated, click [Simulate] to start simulation.
Note:
1. The MT5000 panels can perform indirect online simulation via the Ethernet, USB or serial port.
2. The MT4000 panels can perform indirect online simulation via the USB or serial port.
3.9 Download
After a project is compiled, it can be downloaded to the touch panel for actual operation. The
MT5000 panels provide three download methods: USB, Ethernet and serial port. The MT4000
panels provide two download modes: USB and serial port. Downloading via the Ethernet is the
fastest way, while downloading via the serial port and USB is a bit slower. Before download/upload,
the users must set the communication parameters first. Set the communication parameters in the
Setting Option submenu in the Tools menu in the menu bar, as shown in the following figure:
69
Chapter 3 Description of the eV5000 Software
Then, the following dialog box appears:
1) Download through USB cable
A USB cable is included in the package of MT5000/4000 panel. Connect MT5000/4000 panel
to the USB port of the PC with that cable before download.
z The USB-client port on the MT4000/5000 panel can only be used for uploading/downloading
configuration package file and the logo file or setting the system parameters of the HMI panel.
Other USB devices such as printers and USB mass storage devices are not supported.
When using USB downloading cable for the first time, the user should install the USB device
driver manually. Connect the panel and the PC with the cable fist, power on the panel. The
windows OS will report that the system had just found a new hardware and start the wizard as the
following figure shows. The user can finish the installation by following the instruction below.

Once the driver is installed successfully, the user can select My Computer Æ Properties Æ
Hardware Æ Device Manager Æ Universal Serial Bus Controller to check whether the USB
device is connected to and identified by the PC, as shown in the following figure: (The EVIEW
USB appears only when the DIP switches 1 and 2 in the rear of the touch panel are set to “OFF”.)
To configure the DIP switches, remove the lit on the back of panel.
75
Chapter 3 Description of the eV5000 Software
Once the driver has been installed successfully, no more settings is needed. The user can use
the eView USB device after connecting and powering on the panel. To download through USB
cable, select “USB” for Download Device, as shown in the following figure:
76
Chapter 3 Description of the eV5000 Software
Compress Large Bitmap: In the numeric input box, the user can specify the limit of the
original file size of the bitmap which is imported into the project. The file size is counted by
bytes. When the bitmap file exceeds that limit, the complier will compress the bitmap for
downloading. Compression will save the storage space on the panel. This option is selected
by default.
2) Ethernet (For MT5000 panels only)
The Ethernet interface can be used for the downloading of the HMI configuration, the setting of the
HMI system parameters, and the indirect online simulation of the configuration. Furthermore,
multiple HMIs can be interconnected via the Ethernet to form a multi-HMI application.
77
Chapter 3 Description of the eV5000 Software
IP Address: Refers to the IP address of the HMI to be downloaded. In addition to this IP
address, the IP address of the PC should also be set. The two IP addresses should be in the
same network section, that is to say, the range of the IP address of your PC is: 192.168.0.1
~11/13 ~ 255. To implement normal download, the IP address of the HMI should be different
from that of the PC.
Port No.: A network is actually composed of seven layers of protocols. One of the most
important tasks of the Transport Layer is to provide a reliable end-to-end connection. Where,
the “end” here means the port. Of course, there are many ports, ranging from 0 to 65535. The
TCP/IP protocol has many ports. All the ports less than 1024 have clear definitions. You are
recommended to use ports above 1024. Set such a port to a port used for the touch screen.
Anyway, please make sure that your PC allows the use of this port. The setting procedure for
the PC port is as follows:
Network Connections (right click) Æ Properties Æ Local Area Connection (right click)
Æ Properties Æ Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Æ Properties Æ Advanced Æ Options Æ
Enable TCP/IP Filtering Æ Properties
For details, refer to the following figure:
78
Chapter 3 Description of the eV5000 Software
Caution: 1. Normally, the port number does not need modification.
To change the port number, the port number in the Setting Option in the [Tools] menu should not
be the same as that in the Project Structure Window and HMI Properties, as shown in the following
figure:
79
Chapter 3 Description of the eV5000 Software
2. This port can be connected to a HUB or a SWITCH via a standard Ethernet cable (RJ45
straight-through cable) to access the LAN (Local Area Network), or can be directly connected to
the Ethernet port of the PC via an interconnection cable (RJ45 cross-over cable).
The network interface of the PC is directly connected to the touch screen via a cross-over cable.
Then, it is connected to the touch screen through the HUB via a straight-through cable.
3. If a user has enabled the firewall, an alert box will appear to ask which port the user wants to
access. Select "Enable", and download can be made. If all ports are disabled, disable the firewall.
4. The touch screen is directly connected to the network interface of the PC, and the IP address of
the PC should be changed to an address different from that of the touch screen. If the IP address
of the touch screen is 192.168.0.253, then IP address of the PC should be changed to
192.168.0.X. The first three digits should be the same, and the last digit should be different.
2) Downloading through Serial port
To use serial port as the downloading method, select “Serial Port” in the list, as the following figure
shows:
80
Chapter 3 Description of the eV5000 Software
Serial Port No.: Select a serial port you want to use. Make sure the port you designate is available
and the downloading cable is connected properly. The user can contact with Stepservo Ltd or
local distributor to get the serial downloading cable.
Note: Due to the low downloading speed, downloading through serial port will take a long
time to wait, thus it is not recommended as the downloading channel.
After selecting the downloading method and setting the required parameters, you can start
downloading by click the icon
. A dialog box will pop up after clicking the download icon.
According to the method you select, the dialog box looks a bit different, as the following figures
show:
81
Chapter 3 Description of the eV5000 Software
Except the downloading-method-related parameters displayed in gray boxes, there are some
options the users can set and should pay attention to.
82
Chapter 3 Description of the eV5000 Software
Select Section
The files to be downloaded to the panel are of three types: User Data File, Recipe File and Logo
File.The user can select any one of these files to be downloaded, which makes the downloading
more flexible and avoid wasting time for unnecessary download. The following paragraphs give an
introduction of these files.
User Data File: The configuration project files, including all the data of the configuration
windows and images, are packaged into a single user data file after being compiled. The
extension of the file type is .pkg. Only after the *.pkg file has been downloaded, the panel can
run the configuration project designed by the user.
Recipe File: This option is only available when there is a recipe file imported into the project
and affiliated to an HMI panel. The recipe file is stored in one SRAM chip on the mainboard of
the panel, with a backup battery to keep the data when the power is off.
LOGO File: Logo is the first picture displayed during the power-on stage, when the
embedded system has not been booted. So the picture is different from other pictures
displayed in the configuration windows. By editing the initial window, the user can create his
own logo file, whose expansion is *.logo. When the user want to change the current logo, he
must edit the initial window in the project and compile the project, then select the Logo File
check box and download the file to the panel. Once the logo file has been downloaded, there
is no need to download everytime if the user doesn’t want to change it. The logo will be
displayed everytime the panel is powered on. By default, the checkbox for logo file
downloading is unselected.
How to make your own logo?
Create a new project or open an existing one, make sure there is an HMI icon in the Project
Window. Click the
icon on the toolbar, or right click HMI icon in the Project Window to enter
the initial starting window edit window, as shown in the following figure:
83
Chapter 3 Description of the eV5000 Software
By default, there is a logo picture of Stepservo Ltd in the editing window. The user can replace it
with his own logo or other desired picture. To import an user-defined picture, click the
icon on
the toolbar, and the following dialog box appears:
Find your company’s logo image and click Open. The supported image format is bitmap, JPEG
image and GIF image, and the image to be imported as the logo should not larger than the size of
the panel. (For MT4300/5300, the size is 320*240, for MT4400/4500/5400/5500, the size is
640*480.) In the following figures, we use the logo of Stepservo as an example:
84
Chapter 3 Description of the eV5000 Software
After selecting the image and click “Open”, the logo image is imported into the editing window and
you can ajust the size and position of it. When the adjustment is done, save it and close the
window to return to the project window. Connect the HMI panel and PC, compile the project and
click “download” icon, the dialog box we have discussed above appears:
Select LOGO File checkbox and click Download. If the user only want to download the logo and
don’t want to download the user data file, unselect the User Data File checkbox.
85
Chapter 3 Description of the eV5000 Software
After the download is finished, click [OK].
Reset the panel, it will show the logo just been downloaded during the power-on stage. If no logo
file has been downloaded, the panel will display “LOGO Error!” instead.

Chapter 4
Configuration Windows
4.1 Window Type
Window is the basic elements of an EV5000 project. Each display is composed of a number of
windows. There are three types of windows: Basic, common and fast selection. A basic window
can be used as a pop-up window after changing its size. All windows can be assigned as underlay
windows.
z
Basic window: Basic window is the normal type of window that would be displayed during
HMI runtime. When using (Change Window) command to switch to a basic window, the
current screen will be cleared (all windows except the common window and fast selection
window will be turned off). When the parts in the base window invoke the pop-up window, the
original information of the base window will be kept, while the invoked pop-up window will be
attached to the current base window. The relationship between all such pop-up windows and
the base window is a kind of father-son window relationship. Upon the switchover from base
window N to base window M, all sub-windows of window N will be closed, while window M
and sub-window of window M are displayed. The base window should be of the full-screen
size.
z
Fast selection window: The fast selection window is a window activated by touching the task
button. This window will be always displayed on the screen unless it’s hided by a task button.
So it can be used for placing function keys which switch over windows or other commonly
87
Chapter 4 Windows
used objects. By default, Window 2 is the fast selection window. If another window is set to be
the fast selection window, the window should be of the same size as the fast selection
window.
z
Common window: The common window will always be displayed on the screen. A part to be
always displayed can be placed in the common window. Thus, you can view the state or
operation of the component at any time. By default, Window 1 is the common window. The
function key Change Common window can be used to change other window to be the
current common window. However, there is only one current common window.
z
Bottom Window: A maximum of three underlay windows can be set for the window in the
Window Properties dialog box. Normally, the bottom window is used to store common
components shared by multiple windows, such as background images, graphs, titles and so
on. Any window can be set as a bottom window.
As shown in the figure above, you can select a bottom-layer window for the window in the Bottom
Window option. A bottom-layer window is different from a common window. During runtime, the
components of the bottom window are inserted into the general window, but actually this bottom
window is not displayed. The display and control of components of the bottom window are the
same as that of the general window. The bottom window is something like “transparent” for the
panel users, The users operate the parts on the bottom window while they think they are touching
the parts on the general window above the bottom window.
Relationship between screen and window: A screen can include: a common window, a base
window and a fast selection window, while each common window or base window can include
multiple pop-up windows. Their relationship is shown as follows:
88
Chapter 4 Windows
Screen
Base window
Fast selection
window
Common window
When the window switchover command is executed, the panel screen will clear all the current
windows (including the pop-up windows attached to the current basic window), and switch over to
the window to be displayed. However, the common window will always be displayed on the screen.
A pop-up window invoked by a direct or indirect window will not change the original contents of the
base window, and it is only attached to the base window. In the window property setting dialog box,
each window can be configured with a maximum of three bottom windows.
When a base window is invoked (the window number ranges from 0 to 3~ 65535), the touch panel
will show all parts in the window. In the meantime, if the window has a bottom window and all parts
in the bottom window will be displayed also. All the touchable parts (such as bit state setting,
function keys and so on) defined in the bottom window are also valid in the current window. The
common window is also displayed with all parts of it valid if it has been invoked by taskbar button.
The maxim number of windows in a project is 65535 (including all three types of windows). A
project can only have one fast selection window, however, the function key Change Fast
Selection Window can be used to switch over to another window and assign that one to be the
current fast selection window. For details, please refer to Section 6.29, “Function Key”.
After creating a new blank project, it has a default start window. Normally this window is numbered
“0” (to change the number, please change it in the HMI Properties dialog box in the project edit
window). In general, a project contains multiple windows. The valid window number ranges from 0
to 65535.
By default, Window 1 and Window 2 are the common window and fast selection window of a
project respectively. To change the default fast selection window and common window, double
click the HMI to modify the Touch Screen Extended Properties, as shown in the following figure:
89
Chapter 4 Windows
Note:
1. A maximum of 16 pop-up windows can be opened at the same time.
2. A window can only be opened once.
3. The function key Close Window cannot close direct or indirect windows, since the opening
or closing of a direct window is only related to the ON or OFF state of the bit address that
controls its switch, and the opening or closing of an indirect window is only related to the
data content of the word address of the indirect window. The function key Close Window
cannot change the values of these bit (word) addresses, so it cannot close these windows.
4. All pop-up windows are attached to the current basic window, so when the basic window
closes (or switches to other basic window), the attached pop-up windows will be closed
either. In this case, if you switch the window to the basic window previously opened again,
you may find that the original pop-up windows attached to this basic window still exist
(unless you run related command to close them).
5. The basic window must be of the full-screen size.
6. The fast selection window supports pop-up windows, but the “Truncated” feature of the
pop-up windows invoked by fast selection window can not be selected when setting the
property of that pop-up window.
7. Pop-up windows are attached to the windows which contain the parts that invoke those
pop-ups. So pop-up windows invoked by parts in the common window will exist until the
common window parts turn them off.
4.2 Window Properties
To set the window properties, double click on the blank area of the window or click the
show the window properties setting dialog box.
90
icon to
Chapter 4 Windows
The descriptions of the window properties are as follows:
Name: A unique name allocated to each window for the convenience of differentiation and
remembering. The name here can be changed whenever it is necessary to do so.
Number: The valid window number ranges from 0 to 65535. The window number is
automatically allocated by the system when a window is created. The user cannot change it.
The window numbers may not be consecutive due to the deleting/adding operations.
Position: If a window is a window that appears by use of the function key in Pop-up Window,
the position of the point at the upper left corner of the window will be displayed here. The
position of the origin of the screen is (0,0) and the origin point is the upper left corner of the
screen.
Width/Height: A pop-up window supports the setting of width and height (smaller than the
size of the screen, of course). However, a basic window should be set to the default size (that
is, the full-screen size).
Print Page: Indicate whether the window is used as the print window. For more information
about printing, refer to chapter 10.
Video Page: Indicate whether to set the window as a video window. (Only the MT5600T and
MT5700T have the video function)
Use Background Fill Effect: To fill the background of window with the patterns or colors,
check this option.
Fill Color and Background Color: Select according to the fill style used (for the description
of the fill effect toolbar, please refer to Chapter 3). The selected fill color is the impression
color, and the background color is the fill pattern color. Fill style 0 is used by default, that is, a
pure color. In this case, only the fill color is displayed.
Pop-up Window Type: Track, Monopoly, Truncate and Coherence.
These parameter types indicate the relationship between a pop-up window and its adjacent
window. If a window has the property of “Monopoly”, before the window appears, its father window
91
Chapter 4 Windows
will be frozen, and furthermore, the pop-up window will be displayed in the topmost layer all the
time. If a window has the property of “Truncate”, the frame of the window is restricted by its father
window, that is to say, the part displayed outside the frame of its father window will be truncated. If
a window has the property of “Track”, the window will track the movement of its father window.
Note: If “Truncate” is selected, “Track” must be selected either.
Window A and Window B in the following are attached to the base window. Normally, if you touch
Window A, it will be displayed in the topmost layer. However, if the property of [Coherence]is
selected for Window A, even if you touch Window A, it will not appear in the topmost layer. Instead,
it clings to its father window all the time.
Note: After a window is created, its number cannot be changed, but the name, frame and
background color can be changed whenever it is necessary.
Basic window

Security Level: Used to set the security level for a window. For details, refer to Chapter 12,
“Security Level”.
Bottom-layer Window: Used to set the bottom window for the current window. A window to
be assigned as a bottom window must be an existing one. In general, components shared by
multiple windows can be placed here.
Frame: The frame is recommended to use for a pop-up window. For the frame width, select
any number among 0 through 16. If the frame width is not “0”, select other color for the frame.

you can directly roll the wheel to change the window number.
93
Chapter 4 Windows
4.5 Deleting a Window
As shown in the above figure, in the Project Construct Window, select a window to be deleted,
and press the [Delete] key in your keypad. In this case, an alert box appears. Select [Yes] to
delete the window, all the components in the window will also be deleted. Be careful when using
this function.
Note: The deletion of base windows (Frames 0, 1, 2 and 3) are forbidden. Once they are
deleted, the project should not be downloaded into panel, or the panel will not operate normally..
4.6 Examples for Windows
Several basic examples will be given below to explain some basic operations about “window”.
◆ Example 1: We often need to write a special value into some registers as soon as a project
starts running or an application window is opened, to conduct initialization. For example, when
Frame0 starts up, LB0 is set to “ON”, and LW1 is set to “200”.
94
Chapter 4 Windows
1.
Create a bit setting part, with the Address Type set to LB, Address to “0”, and the Type to
Set to ON at window open.
95
Chapter 4 Windows
2.
Create a multi-state setting component, with the Address Type set to LW, Address to “1”,
Type to Set to ON at window open, and Set Value to “200”.
96
Chapter 4 Windows
3.
Create a Indicator lamp part, with the Address Type set to LB, and the Address to ”0”, to
display the state of bit register LB0.
97
Chapter 4 Windows
4.
Create a number display part, with the Address Type set to LW, and the Address to ”1”, to
display the state of LW1.
5.
The finished project window is shown as follows:
98
Chapter 4 Windows
6.
Save, compile and perform online simulation of the project: LB0 is set to ON, and LW1 is set
to 200.
Reference for this example: Section 6.1, “Indicator Lamp”, Section 6.2, “Bit Setting Component”,
Section 6.4, “Multi-State Setting” and Section 6.11, “Numeric Display” in Chapter 6.
◆Example 2: It is an example of pop-up keypad window for number entry. In many cases, we
need to conduct write operation for registers. If the keypad is fixed on the current window, it will
occupy too much screen area, so that the current window design space of the project is greatly
reduced. In this example, we use the direct pop-up window method to solve this problem. Assume
that LW0 is the register need an input operation.
99
Chapter 4 Windows
Note: The EV5000 software has a keypad in Window 3, which can be directly invoked, so
you do not have to create a keypad by yourself each time. To create your own keypad, please refer
to chapter 6.

5.1 Parts
Generally, a window contains many parts of different kinds, such as switches, lamps, numeric
input parts and shape parts. Parts are divided into two species: PLC parts and Function Parts.
They can be found in the Graphic element Window. Following a three-step procedure, the user
can add a part to the window.
XProcess of adding a PLC part
1.
Click to select then drag a part icon from the PLC component toolbox to the window
editing area.
2.
After dropping the icon, the Component Attribution dialog box of the part appears. Set
the properties of the part in this dialog box. Attributions most frequently used are PLC
input/output address, vectogram or bitmap, label, position, and so on.
105
Chapter 5
3.
Basic Design of EV5000
After setting the various properties of the part close the dialog box, users can see the part
appears in the window. Users can drag the icon to adjust the size and position of the part.
For precise adjustment, open the part Component Attribution dialog box and input the

5.2 About Part ID
z
ID is a number automatically allocated to a part. It is used to differentiate parts on the screen.
The designer cannot manually designate or change the component ID.
The ID has two parts: a combination of two or three letters indicates the full name or function
of that part and a number used as a symbol to distinguish the part from its homogeneous. All
the letter combinations and their meanings are listed below:
BL: Indicator lamp
WL: Word Lamp (Multi-State Display)
SB: Bit setting component
SWD: Word setting

5.4 Input/Output Address of PLC
Parts related to PLC registers during runtime must be designated with proper PLC I/O address to
ensure the program run correctly. The correct address type and range are different for different
PLCs. As shown in the following figure, PLC0 is a MODBUS device, while PLC1 is a SIEMENS
product, so their addresses are different. The program will automatically list the correct address
type and range according to the PLC type.
The PLC list box can display the numbers of all available PLC devices.
108
Chapter 5
Basic Design of EV5000
An internal node can also be selected as input origin or output target. The descriptions of the
internal nodes are as follows:
Type Device Name
Range
Description
Bit
LB
0~9999
The register is in the local memory
Bit
RBI
0.0~261000.15 Index address of the recipe memory , in X.Y format,
Bit
RB
0.0~261000.15 h=0~F, absolute address of the recipe memory
Word LW
0~10256
Address of the Local memory
Word RWI
0~261000
Index address of the recipe memory
Word RW
0~261000
Absolute address of the recipe memory
RB and RW point to the same area, for example, RB5.0~RB5.F and RW5 map into the same word
of the recipe memory, RB5.0 is Bit0 of RW5. However, LB and LW map into different areas, and
their addresses in the memory are different.
LB9000~LB9999 in LB and LW9000~LW10256 in LW are reserved for system functions, which
have special usage, so the user cannot use them like common nodes. Therefore, the user should
use their special functions according to related instructions. For details, please refer to Chapter 11.
If an index address accesses the recipe memory, the index address itself serves as the base
address, the offset address is stored in the register LW9000, the physical address is the sum of the
base address and the offset. For example, if (LW9000)= 50, the index address RWI 100 will
access the data of the addresses of RW 150 (100+50). (For details, refer to Chapter 8, “Recipe
Data”.)
5.5 Vector graph
Shapes and images are organized in libraries in ev5000 software. There are two kinds of image:
Vector Graph and Bitmap. Library of vector graph is named as *.vg file and bitmap laibrary is
named as *.bg file. The user can create vector graph with the drawing tools in ev5000 drawing
toolbar. Vector graphes are suitable for simple shapes like buttons, lamps, and pipes and so on.
Each *.vg or *.bg file has up to 32 states and 32 different appearance, so the user can use one
single graph to represent a multi-state variable or part. *.vg and *.bg files are stored in the Shape
Library in the Project File Window, as shown in the following figure:
109
Chapter 5
Basic Design of EV5000
Some shape library files are installed into the ev5000 folder with the program files, the user can
import these pre-made shape into their own projects. Click the
Import Shape Library icon on
the toolbar, and the following dialog box appears:
Then, find the LIB/vg file under the software installation directory, the .vg files are classified into
different categories stored in corresponding folders for easy browsing. Select a vectogram to be
imported, click Import, the vectogram will be copied to the vg folder under the current project
directory. It supports the simultaneous import of multiple vectograms or bitmaps. For shapes in the
same folder, you only need to select all shapes to be imported, and click Import. All the
vectograms and bitmaps imported or created for the entire project will be displayed in the Shape
110
Chapter 5
Basic Design of EV5000
Library in the Project File Window, so that the user can view and use the shapes conveniently.
A vectogram may include 32 states, and it can be use in two modes: static vectogram without
changing states or indicator of a multi-state part.

5.6 Bitmap Graphics
Like vector graphic, a bitmap graphic can also have up to 32 states and represent different states
of a multi-state part with a single graphic. The most significant difference between bitmap and
vector graphic is that the user can import external images of various formats (*.bmp, *.jpg and *.gif)
into the project and converted them to *.bg files. The basic operations of a .bg file are quite similar
to those of a .vg file, with a few differences.
Note: Such operations as drawing a line and drawing are forbidden in a bitmap. Only external
shapes can be added.
The procedure of creating and editing a .bg file is shown below:
1. Select New Graphics in the Library menu or click the
icon on the toolbar, the following
dialog box appears:
2. Select Bitmap for Type, enter the number of states and name of the bg, click Create.
116
Chapter 5
Basic Design of EV5000
The user can add additional states to an existing .bg file. The procedure is decribed as follows:
Double click the bg file you want to add state to in the Projcet File Window. After entering the
editing mode, click the editing area below the states preview window, the
new states will be activated. Click the
icon for adding
icon, a new state will appear after the current last state
in the states preview window. The latest added state will be selected and ready for editing.
3. Click the
icon in the Drawing Toolbar, find the image you want to import, click to open it.
For bitmap graphics, you can only import a picture, other editing operations such as line
117
Chapter 5
Basic Design of EV5000
drawing tools and other similar tools are disabled, as shown in the following figures:
4. Click Save and close the bitmap editing window, you can use it in the configuration window
through the bitmap component.
118
Chapter 5
Basic Design of EV5000
Use of bitmaps:
1. Select a component you want it to use a bitmap, open the component attribution dialog box
and switch to the Shape tab:
2. Select the (Use Bitmap) option. Select the bg file to be used, the preview of the bg is shown
on the right. Click (OK) to close the dialog box.
Import Existing Bitmap Graphics:
1. You may import a bg file like the import of a vg file. Click the
icon to show the importing
dialogbox. Select Bitmap for the Import Type. You can import *.bg files used in other projects
(they are stored in the “vg” folder under the directory of the project folder.) or *.bg files provided
by us. (visit our website to download the bg file package,)
119
Chapter 5
Basic Design of EV5000
2. The *.bg files and *.vg files of the same project are stored in the “vg” folder under the
project folder directory. The *.bg file is converted from other images; the original images
are stored in the “image” folder under the project folder directory. Please do not delete the
images in that folder, or the corresponding *.bg files will not be used any more.
Note:
The original image is stored in the “image” folder when being imported, so the image must have a
unique file name to avoid confliction. If such confliction occurs when editing a new .bg file, the
newer image will not be added to the “image” folder, so the two bg file, including the previous and
the new one, will be linked to the same original image and they may look the same.
The size and color quality of images in the bitmap library determine the size of the target file, and
also affect the configuration execution speed. Please pay attention to the following points when a
bitmap library is created:
i.
The maximum size for original image being imported is the physical resolution of the panel.
Any image exceeds this size cannot be imported. In this case, the image should be cut into the
proper size before being imported. It is strongly recommended to resize the original image to
the same size of the part using that image. Doing so will greatly save storage space and
ensure the fast run of the panel. For example, the user want to import an image for a part of
the size 100×60, but the size of the original image is 200×120, Since the image size doesn’t
exceed the smallest panel resolution 320×240, the image can be imported and used for that
part, but it will be displayed as a 100×60 part, which means the a original image of the size
100×60 will have the same effect. Resize the larger original image will certainly save 3/4
storage space and small file will save the time for the panel CPU. Always take your time to
resize the image to proper size will make the project file smaller and run faster.
ii.
Images are stored in lossless compression mode in the panel, so any image of the loss
120
Chapter 5
Basic Design of EV5000
compression format (for example ,jpg) will be converted to lossless compression file, which
may make the file larger than original image. The actual size of an image depends mainly on
the number of pixels. For example, for a 100×60 color picture, its size before compression is
100×60×2 (=12000 bytes), and the compression rate in lossless compression mode is
10~80%, depending on the specific images. Therefore, to reduce the project size, reasonable
optimization of the image size and colors is the best way.
iii.
When importing a bitmap, if there is no special requirement, try to make the outer frame of the
bitmap fit the outline of the edit box; otherwise, a blank area will appear in the bitmap.
Suppose the user import a 100×50 original image to a edit box of the size 100×100, the user
should stretch the image after importing to make it fill the edit box. When using the bitmap
graphic in configuration window, you can stretch the outline of the part or enter the size in the
“Position” tab of the component attribution dialogbox, In these two method, you can retrim the
bitmap to its correct ratio. (image needed)
5.7 Creating a Label
A label refers to a text displayed on the surface of switches, lamps or other components.
X Adding a label
1. Select Label tab in the Component Attribution Dialogbox of the part selected.
2. Check the option Use Label.
3. As shown in the following figure, fill the content to be displayed on the label in Content.
4. Set such display properties as alignment mode, font size and color.
5. Click OK to finish the setting.
State No.: The State No. is only valid for components with multiple states. The text of each
state can be displayed independently. The user can set the text content, font size, color and
the alignment for corresponding states separately.
Content: Enter the text to be displayed on the surface of the component. If there are multiple
121

Basic Design of EV5000
lines, press the [Enter] key to start a new line.
Font Size: The variable font size range is: 8, 16, 24, 32, 48, 64, 72 and 96 pixels.
Alignment: If the text input of a label exceeds two lines, Left, Right or Center can be
selected for the alignment of the multiple lines.
Color: The user can select from a palette of 40 frequently-used colors among 65536 colors.
The Primary Color palette includes the most frequently used colors. The Custom palette
allows the user to customize a palette (there are 65536 optional colors).
5.8 Taskbar and Task Buttons
The eView5000 provides a simple method for window actions such as pop up or minimize, change
the display or quickly switchover between windows. All these can be done with taskbar.
The taskbar provides two task buttons, one is used to control the Fast Selection window, and the
other is used to control the taskbar itself.
In the HMI Attribution dialogbox in the project window (double click the HMI icon or right click and
select “Attribution” to open it), the user can set the taskbar, including whether to use the Fast
Selection window, color, position, and other related properties. (By default, all the items in the
taskbar are selected)
If Include Fast Selection Window (labled as “Include F-S Window”) is selected, click the Fast
122
Chapter 5
Basic Design of EV5000
Selection window button in the left, a Fast Selection window appears. This window provides some
function keys (placed by the user) for switching to different windows. Since the Fast Selection
window is always displayed in all screens, it can be invoked anytime. To switch to a specific
window, touch the function key pointing to the destination window, in this way the process of
monotonous window search can be avoided.
The taskbar can include a maximum of 16 window icons at the same time. Double click the Minimize icon,
and the related pop-up window will be minimized; clicking this icon again will retrieve the minimized
window to original state. Pop-up window with the function keys Minimize Window and Window Bar can
be minimized to the taskbar. Refer to the description in the Components and Function keys part in
Chapter 6.
X Procedure of setting task buttons
In the project window, double click HMI to show the HMI Attribution setting dialog box. Open the
Taskbar tab, check the Display Taskbar option. The user can set the position of the task buttons:
to the right or to the left. The label content of the taskbuttons can be changed in the corresponding
edit box. Background color and alignment of the text can be set in the dialogbox also. If the labels
of the two task buttons can not be fully displayed, try to adjust the button area size and the font
size of the text.

6.7 XY Plot
XY plot is a curve which shows the relationship between two variables in a vivid way.
Two neighbouring word registers form a pair. The lower register contains the value representing
the X axis while the higher one corresponds to the Y axis. Such a pair of registers represents a
sampling point. A curve consists multiple smapling points must use the same number of register
pairs.
For example : Suppose an XY plot component containing M channels, each chanel contains N
sampling points on each page. For this XY plot on one page, the required registers in PLC cover a
continous area of M×N×2 words, as shown below:
X11, Y11, X12, Y12, ... X1N,Y1N, ..., ...., XM1, YM1,..., XMN, YMN
Note: For Xij and Yij, the subscript i indicates channel number and j indicates sampling point. Xij
indicates the horizontal axis value of the sampling point j in the channel i.

Some users would like to display the contents on the keypad when entering data. To implement
this function, a text input component can be placed in the keypad to read the corresponding data
between LW9060 and LW9075.
—
An example of the usage for LW9060 ~ LW9075 is shown as follows:
1.Create a new project and add a text input component on window 0. Set the parameters as
shown in the figures below, notice that the input component has 5 words for storage, so the user
can input up to 10 characters.
163
Chapter 6
Components
The project wizard has a default numeric keyboard on window 3 for numeric value input. On
Window 1, which is the default common window, there are two direct widnow components. They
will popup window 3 when there is a touch event on numeric/text input component. To use a
customized keyboard other than the default window 3, please delete the two direct window
components. If you want all the numeric/text input components to use the same keyboard, put the
direct window component on Common window 1 and make the DW part call the customized
keyboard window. If you want the input components on different windows to have their own
keyboard, put DW part on the window where the input component is.
The two DW parts on window 1. They
will pop up default window 3 when an
input component is pressed. Delete
them if you want to use customized
keyboard.
2.Compute the size of the keyboard. In this example, we will create a keyboard with 10 digit keys,
all 26 letter keys and four function keys: Clear, Backspace, Esc and Enter. The keyboard has four
lines with 10 keys on each line. We set the size of one key to be 25×25, the size of the whole
keyboard is 250×100. For displaying the content just input, add a line 250 pixels wide and 25
pixels high. So the complete keyboard is 250 pixels wide and 125 pixels high. In this example, we
use window 4 as the keyboard window. Use the window attribution dialogbox to change the size of
the window to 250×100.
164

if the font alignment mode for the text display component is set to Align Right, the data starts from
the highest word, that is, LW9075. Since the text input component covers 5 words, the input
address of the text display component is LW9071. (LW9071 to LW9075 are used for saving the
content the user has just input,) Goto the Font tab and set the alignment mode as “Align Right”

6.22 Event Entry (Event Information Logon)
When a particular event occurs, a corresponding message will be displayed on the screen if it has
been registered in the Event Entry List before. The message to be displayed on the Event
Display component must first be registered in the Event Entry list. A PLC bit or word register
controls each message. If the PLC bit or word device activates (either by ON/OFF switch or value
limit exceeding), the corresponding message is displayed on the Event Display component. (This
component is only used for event entry. To display an event message, the Event Display
component is required.)

Note: The “Trigger Function” is an optional function. If there is no need to use those functions,
leave the checkbox unselected.
(4)Text: Enter the content of the event message and select font color and size.
Note: Data from internal memory can be embedded in an event message. To embed a value,
use the following format: %nnd. Where: “%” is the starting delimiter; “nn” is the internal
register (LW) number 00-99; and “d” is the ending delimiter. For example: The content is set
as "Current temperature value %25d: UPPER LIMIT ALARM". If LW25 = 120, then the
message will be printed out as "Current temperature value 120: UPPER LIMIT ALARM". To
print out current value of PLC register data, you should first assign a data transfer component
to move data from the PLC to internal memory (LW).

6.25 Oscilloscope
The Oscilloscope component has similar functions with the Trend Graph component.
The difference is that when the current window containing the trend graph closes, the background
data acquisition continues; therefore, when a user switches back to the trend graph at any time,
210
Chapter 6
Components
the user can obtain the sampling information before the switchover. However, the data acquisition
of the oscilloscope is only valid on the current page; in other words, after each switchover, the
system will not sample oscilloscope data and the data will get lost. When a user switches back to
the oscilloscope window, it will resume data sampling from the very beginning. The advantage of
an oscilloscope is that a user can monitor multiple waveforms, for which the long-term monitoring
is not necessary, without adding extra background processing loads. Meanwhile, the oscilloscope
provides variable-rate sampling function, which when cooperating with a PLC, enables a user to
obtain higher sampling frequency, without being restricted to the frequency of 1 point per second.
X Procedure to add an oscilloscope
1.
Click the Oscilloscope component icon and drag it to the window, the basic attribution tab of
the component attribution dialogbox appears.
Input Address: Specify the PLC word register address corresponding to the first curve, the
second curve data register is located at Read Address + 1, and the third is located at read
address + 2, etc
Address Type: Select the address type of the register corresponding to the oscilloscope, that
is, the monitored register’s address type. The address type varies with PLC type. Alternatively,
you can also use the internal register of the HMI. For internal registers of HMI, refer to Section
5.4. Please note that some internal registers of the HMI are reserved by the system. Do not
use these registers. For details, refer to Chapter 11.
Address: The initial address of the word registers corresponding to the curves in the
oscilloscope component.
Code Type: BIN or BCD.
No. of Words: Depends on the number of sampling channels (curves). If the number of
channels is N (1<=N<=16) (which means there are N curves to be shown), the No. of Words
is N.
Use Address Tag: Whether to use the address entered in the address tag library. For details,
refer to Section 6.35.
Description: A reference name (not displayed on the runtime screen) that you assign to the
211
Chapter 6
Components
oscilloscope component.
2. Go to the [Oscillogram] tab to set related parameters:
Type: Single page or multiple pages.
If the user selects the single page mode, it will only display the data change of the sampling
values in the current page. It does not allow the extension of the oscillogram. If the user
selects multiple-page display, it allows the extension of the oscillogram. The data is displayed
in the same way, but when the oscillogram rolls forward, the previous sampling data will not
be discarded. Previous data will be saved to the memory for future reference. Please note
that a maximum of 31 pages of historical data are available, which is determined by the No. of
Pages parameter.
Attribute: Start from left or start from right. In other words, it determines whether the
oscillogram is displayed from the left to right or from the right to left when displaying sampling
data.
Sampling Time: Time interval between two sampling points, in seconds.
Sampling Ratio: When selecting values other than 1 for this parameter, the oscilloscope will
read the multiple groups of data at a time and display them. For example, if the input address
is LW10, number of channels set to 3, and sampling ratio set to 2, the oscilloscope component
actually read data from 6 registers (LW10-LW15) at a reading operation. The six registers
form 2 groups: group 1 is composed of LW10, LW11 and LW12 while group 2 covers the other
three. When the sampling time is 1 second, it will read these two groups of data in each
second. It is required that the PLC should prepare these two groups of data in advance at a
sampling speed of 0.5S and store them in the corresponding addresses. The oscilloscope can
read display two 0.5S data at the same time in one second, so as to display the curve effect of
the 0.5S sampling cycle.
Save Time: If this check box is selected, the Time box in the Control Address frame is
available.
212
Chapter 6
Components
Sampling Plot: Number of sampling points for one curve displayed on the graph.
No. of Pages: When the Type is set to “Multiple Pages”, this box is available.
Channel: Number of tracks to be displayed, corresponding to the number of word addresses
of the PLC data. One word register corresponds to one track.
Hold (Keep): The bit address that controls the start or stop of the oscillogram; in other words,
the data sampling stops when the [Hold] bit is turned ON, and the sampling continues and
oscillogram will be dynamically displayed when the [Hold] bit is turned OFF.
Roll: Changing the value of this register can implement scroll display of the graph. Each
incremental unit can move the oscillogram leftward/rightward by one sampling point. For
example, create two numeric setting components, with their register addresses the same as
the address of the register controlling the scrolling. Set one component to addition and the
other to deduction. In this way, it can turn the oscillogram to the previous or next page.
Time: When the Save Time check box is selected, the Time box in the lower part of the
window will be activated. It includes 12 word registers used to save the time of the latest
sampling point. The registers are restricted to HMI local words, the user can specify address
for them.
3. Go to the [Channel] tab and set related parameters of each track.
Color: Designate the color of each track.
Line Width: The width of a line, including 8 options.

scrolling scope of the scroll bar.
X Adding a scroll bar
1.
Click the Scroll Bar icon and drag it to the window, the [basic attribution] tab of the
[component attributions] dialogbox appears.
Output Address: The first word or double word register is used to save the current position
value; the second word or double word is used to save the position value of the starting point
(that is, the starting point in the left or upper most part of the scroll bar, depending on the scroll
direction of the scroll bar); the last word or double word is used to save the position value for
the end of the scroll bar (that is, the ending point in the right or lower most part of the scroll
bar). When you change the value of the first word or double word, the scroll bar will move
towards the direction set by you (from left to right, from right to left, from top to bottom, from
bottom to top). The step of each motion is 1, and the range of motion is determined by the
following two words (double words) registers. Alternatively, you need not set the value of the

6.29.1 Switch Window
If the function key component is used to manipunate the window, select the Switch Window
option, there are some specific window operation options in the list on the right. Among them are
Change basic window, goto previous, change common window, change fast selection
window, popup window, close window, move task bar and minimize window.
Change Basic Window
If the this option is selected, when the function key is pressed, the current basic window (including
all of its sub-windows) will be terminated and it will display the basic window designated by the
window number selected from the list on the right. The basic window to be switched to must be an
existing one so it can be selected in the list.
Goto Previous (Window)
This function closes the current basic window and recalls the last active basic window. It is only
valid for basic windows.
For example, if basic window 21 is the basic window displayed just before window 32, and window
32 had a function key defined as Return to Previous, then, when the function key is pressed, the
screen will be clear and displays window 21.
Change Common Window
If the function key is set as Change Common Window, when the touch area is pressed, the
current common window will be replaced by the specified window as new common window. Also
the new common window is designated by selecting from the list.
Change Fast Selection Window
This function changes the fast selection window. The window specified in this function must be the
exact same size as the original fast selection window (window number 2 by default).
Pop-up Window

Close Window
A Close Window function key terminates the pop-up window where it is placed when pressed.
However, it cannot close direct or indirect windows. The open/close of direct (indirect) windows
are controlled by their corresponding bit (word) registers, and the Close Window function key can
only close pop-up windows and cannot control the register data.
Popup Window Title Bar
A function key defined as [Popup Window Title Bar] is used to move the position of a popup
window on the screen. A pop up window on the screen, that has a function key inside the window
with the “popup window title barwindow bar” attributes, can be moved by touching the title bar then
touching a another position on the screen, the window is moved to that place.
Minimize Window
If a pop up window on the screen has a function key set to perform Minimize Window function in it,
when the function key is pressed, the window will be minimized to a window icon on the taskbar at
the bottom of the screen. A touch on the window icon will maximize the window again.

triggered by the PLC register, instead of the touch operation. If the value of the [Input Address]
register changes to a new valid window number, the current window will be closed, and the
window designated by the Input Address will be displayed. Then, that number will be written into
back to the register located at Input Address+1. This operation will be triggered only when the
value of the [Input Address] changes. Only one screen change can be made every time when the
value is changed once.
Report Printout
This operation is used to control the printout of a designated window by use of a WORD
register. If the content written into this word address is a valid window number, the content of the
window will be printed out. However, during the print, the window will not be changed to the printed
window. Please refer to the descriptions of “Report Printout” in Chapter 10.
Write data to PLC (Current Base Window No.)
This function make the panel write the window number of the current basic window to a
designated register. In this way, the PLC can know which window is currently displayed on the
panel.
Note: When the current basic window is changed, the touch screen will automatically send the
number of the new basic window to the designated word register.

General PLC Control
The General PLC Control function is used to control the data transmission between the PLC
and the touch panel with PLC data registers.
There are four transmission mode:
1. PLC > RW (recipe data memory), with the type code of 1
2. PLC -> LW (local data register of the touch screen), with the type code of 2
3. RW (recipe data register) ->PLC, with the type code of 3
4. LW (local data register of the touch screen) -> PLC, with the type code of 4
The detailed descriptions are as follows:
Select [General PLC Control] for the [Control Type] in the PLC control component setting
dialog box, and select the type and address of the control data register in the [Input Address]
column, which should be in units of words. The system will automatically set the four consecutive
PLC data registers starting from the [Input Address] to be [Data Transmission Control Register]
for controlling the data transmission. Their detailed meanings and usage are as follows:
1.
[Input Address]: It indicates the transmission mode. As mentioned above, there are four
modes. This register is used to store the codes of the control type. When new control codes
are written into the register, the system will immediately execute related transmission. After
the transmission is completed, the register will reset to “0”.
2.
[Input Address +1]: It indicates the size of the transmitted data block, that is, the number of
words to be transmitted.
3.
[Input Address +2]: It indicates the offset of the data register address of the PLC during
transmission. Please note that this offset is referred to register located at [Input Address+4] as
its reference origin. For example, suppose that we use a MODBUS PLC, If the [Input
Address] set for the [PLC General Control] component is 4X100, and the data in the register
“4X102” is 4, the start address of the data block in the PLC during the transmission is
4X108=[(100+4)+4].
4.
[Input Address+3]: It indicates the address offset of the recipe register (RW) or the local data
register (LW) of the touch screen during transmission. The offset is referred to “0”. For
example, in the above example, if the data of the register “4X103” is “100”, the start address
of the data block in the touch screen during the transmission is RW(LW)100=(0+100).
Application examples:
Suppose that we need a PLC to control the transmission of 30 words from registers starting
with “4X10” in the MODBUS PLC to the data block of the same size starting from RW200 in the
recipe memory of the touch screen. The implementation is described as follows:
1.
Designate four data registers starting with DM10 to be used to control data transmission.
Thus, first we need to input an entry of PLC control component to the PLC Control Library,
select “General PLC Control” for the type, and set the Input Address to 4X10.
254
Chapter 6
2.
Components
Next, determine the data block size and the address offset. Set “4X11” to “30”, indicating that
the size of the transmitted data block is 30 words. Set “4X12” to “86”, indicating the source
start address of the operation is “4X100=(14+86)” of the PLC. Set “4X13” to “200”, indicating
the destination address is RW200=(0+200).
3.
Finally, based on the data transmission direction, set the transmission type code to execute
the transmission process. “4X10” should be set to “1”, indicating that the data of the PLC data
block with the set start address will be transmitted to the data block of the recipe memory of
the touch screen with the set start address. If “4X10” is set to “3”, the transmission direction is
opposite.
Likewise, the transmission operations in the other two directions are the same, and the only
difference is that the data memory of the touch screen is changed to the local data register (LW).
Backlight Close
This function can be used for closing panel backlight with a bit register. When the specified Bit
register state is ON, the backlight of the panel will be shut off. Even if the Bit register is set OFF,
the backlight will not resume. To use a PLC Bit register to light up the backlight, use the Backlight
Open function.
Backlight Close (return value)
This function is similar to the Backlight Close function we have just mentioned above. The
only difference is that when selecting this type of Backlight Close, the control Bit will be
automatically cleared after the backlight going off.
Backlight Open
This function can be used for opening panel backlight with a bit register. When the specified
Bit register state is ON, the backlight of the panel will be turned on. Even if the Bit register is set
OFF, the backlight will not go OFF. To use a PLC Bit register to shut off the backlight, use the
Backlight Close function.
Backlight Open (return value)
This function is similar to the Backlight Open function we have just mentioned above. The
only difference is that when selecting this type of Backlight Open, the control Bit will be
automatically cleared after the backlight being turned on.
Screen Hardcopy
This operation is used to control the printout of the content of current screen by use of a bit
address. If the bit register is triggered from “OFF” state to “ON” state, the current screen will be
printed out. In the [Print Settings] interface that appears by selecting [HMI]/[Properties] in the
255
Chapter 6
Components
communication configuration interface, the valid printer type should be set. Please refer to the
descriptions of “Screen Hardcopy” in Chapter 10.
Execute Macro Program
If the designated bit address state is “ON”, the selected macro will be triggered.
eAddress Type/Address: The address of the register triggering the execution of the macro
instruction. If this bit is set to “1”, the macro code will be executed; if it is set to “0”, the macro
instruction will not be executed.
Macro No.: The number of the macro code to be executed.
Note: This function can be used only when macrocodes are added to the project. For the
adding of macrocodes, please refer to Chapter 9.
6.37 About Overlapping of Components
The overlapping of multiple components will generate many special functions. The MT5000
can support the overlapping of multiple components. if these overlapping components are touched,
the program will execute related operations according to layer order of the individual components.
The components in the topmost layer are considered to be touched first and the corresponding
function will be conducted first, and then the second layer, and so on. For example, If six bit state
setting change components are overlapped to respectively control register Y0 (the topmost layer)
to Y5 (the bottommost layer), when these components are touched, the MT5000 will execute the
program in the following order:
256
Chapter 6
Y0
First execute Y0 command
Layer 2
Y1

Please note that, when the MT5000 encounters the Change Window command, it will bypass
the following components and directly change to the target window. As shown in the following
figure, if Y2 is a function key for Change Window, Y3 ~Y5 will be neglected. The number of
overlapped components should not exceed 32.

About the storage of Event Library
Initial Address: The address of recipe card where the storage space for event library begins.
If the [Save Event Log] option is selected in the [HMI Attribution] dialog box is checked, the
system will automatically save the triggered event information in the recipe card. The user
doesn’t need to care about the detail of saving event information. The saving procedure is
automatically done by the system. The event library starts from the address specified in the [Initial
Address] field. The default value is 0.
Data saved in the recipe card include Event Library Management Information and event entry
information. The event library management information has 30 words and is saved from the [Initial
Address]. The event entries are just saved after the management information. The length of an
event entry is 20 words.
The following example will show the arrangement of memory space for event entry storage.
Open the [HMI Attribution] dialog box and select the check box [Save Event Log], as the
following figure shows:
The system will reserve an area starting from RW100 for saving the event entry data.
Suppose that we want to save an event entry management information and 200 event entries, as
the following table shows:

The size of the reserved space is 200×20+30=4030 words. For users, this area cannot be
written, any write operation will cause unpredictable results. The [Initial Address] can be
designated by the user at his will. There are two notes on that address:
1. The desired memory area should not have any address conflict with the other registers in
the project.
2. The end of the memory are should not exceed RW60000, spaces over RW60000 is
reserved by the system.

Print Date: Determine whether to print out the print date.
Print Extension Date: Determine whether to print out the date in the format of
“YYYY-MM-DD”.
Check Window Errors: Determine whether to check errors in the window during printing.
For detailed print settings and methods, refer to Chapter 10.
7.5
COM Settings
The MT5000/4000 series panels provide two serial ports, so the user has to configure COM0 and
COM1 separately. The two serial ports can be used simultaneously, connecting with two PLCs. For
communication with PLC, the two ports are identical. So we only introduce the setting of Port 1.
Setting of Port 0 is the same.
Type: Select the communication mode of the touch panel and the PLC, including such options
as RS232, RS485-2W and RS485-4W.
Baud Rate, Word Length, Parity and Stop Bits: Set the basic communication parameters
matching the PLC.
Slave Station No.: In most cases, the touch panel is the master station and the PLC serves
as the slave station, and this parameter is invalid then. When the touch panel serves as the
slave station while the PLC serves as the master station, for example, selecting the MODBUS
SLAVE protocol, set the slave station number for the panel here.
PLC Communication Timeout Time: This parameter determines the time used by the touch
screen for waiting for the response of the PLC. When the delay for the communication
between the PLC and the touch panel is longer than the timeout time, the touch panel will
269
Chapter 8 Recipe Data
display the message of “PLC NO RESPONSE”. In general, this parameter is set automatically
when the user selects a PLC model, so it is not necessary for the user to set it in most cases.
Protocol Timeout Time 1/2: Communication protocol timeout time; in general, this parameter
is set automatically when the user selects a PLC, so it is not necessary for the user to set it.
Max interval of block pack (WORDS), Max interval of block pack (BITS), Max block
package size (WORDS), Max block package size (BITS): The touch panel HMI will
automatically collect the PLC data with consecutive addresses and will send a singal read
command to read such multi-addressed data, which greatly enhances communication
efficiency and shortens response time. The parameters Max block package size (WORDS)
and Max block package size (BITS) determine the maximum number of word and bit
registers that can be read consecutively. The values are usually automatically set when the
user selects a PLC, so it is not necessary for the user to set them.
If the addresses of such PLC data are not consecutive, the touch panel will read such data by
separate commands, so a lot of read commands are required for reading such data.
Therefore, we allow a user to modify the interval by modifying the parameters of Max interval
of block pack (WORDS) and Max interval of block pack (BITS). When the interval between
two addresses is longer than the set value, they will be read as two packages; otherwise, they
will be read as a package. In this way, it reduces communication packages and enhances
communication speed.
An example:
As shown in the figure below, to read data from D20 to D29, when the PLC package is set to 0,
the system has to use 3 read commands to read such data. When the Max interval of block
pack (WORDS) is set to 1, the system can read such data with only one command. In general,
the time used for reading additional two addresses (D23, D25) is far less than the time used
for reading two packages, thus, communication time is saved.

Recipe Memory
The recipe memory is the SRAM with backup batteries. Therefore, the contents in the
memory can be saved for at least half a year after power failure. When the system is powered on,
the batteries will be automatically charged. The total size of the recipe memory is 64k words.
The recipe memory has two expressions: “RW” indicates the absolute address, while “RWI”
indicates the index address. “LW9000” indicates the offset of the index address. For example, if
the LW9000 is 50, the index address RWI 0 will direct at the data of the address RW50. At this time,
if we change the data of LW9000 to 51, the index address RWI 0 will direct at the data of the
address RW51, as shown in the figure below:

Create a new project and select [MODBUS RTU] for the PLC type
Firstly, create a component for uploading recipe data: Set [Address Type] to 4x, [Address] to
200, [Function] to Upload, and [Data Length] to 5. Select the [Use Address Tag] check box. The
label content is [Upload], as shown in the figures below:
275
Chapter 8 Recipe Data
Place it on the window:
The recipe data transmission component is made, but it only indicates that the five words with
the starting address of 4x200 shall be transferred to the recipe memory, and it does not suggest
the specific position in the recipe memory. This is where the reserved keyword LW9000 of the
system works. Set the value of LW9000 to 300 and press transmission component key. The five
words with the starting address of 4x200 will be transferred to the position of five words with the
starting address of RW300 in the recipe memory. To transfer the five words with the starting
address of 4x200 to the position RWI00 in the recipe memory, set the value of LW9000 to 100 and
press the transmission component key.
To complete the transmission, we have to make a text input component to modify the upload
data. Set [Address Type] to 4x, [Address] to 200, and [Word No.] to 5. Set trigger address type
to LB and address to 9000. It is shown in the following figure.
276
Chapter 8 Recipe Data
Make a numeric input component to modify the LW9000 data. Set [Address Type] to LW, and
[Address] to 9000. Set trigger address type to LB and address to 9000. It is shown in the following
figure.
To verify whether the data is transferred, place a text input component to display the RW300
data. Set [Address Type] to RWI, [Address] to 0, and [Word No.] to 5. Set trigger address type to
LB and address to 9000. It is shown in the following figure.
277
Chapter 8 Recipe Data
Place a keypad. The completed project is shown in the figure below:
Save and compile the project, run the project in the offline simulation mode. Firstly, change
LW9000 to 300. Since LW9000 indicates the offset of the index address, RWI0 displays the data of
RW300 address, as shown below:
278
Chapter 8 Recipe Data
Then, enter the text data “QWERTYUIOP” in the [4x100] text box and click the [Upload] key.
The RWI0 displays the same data as the [4x100] text box. It indicates the uploading succeeds, as
shown in the figure below:
How to download the five words with the starting address of RW300 to the position with the
starting address of 4x200? The following is an example showing the implementation process. Add
a recipe data transmission component to the above project. Set [Address Type] () to 4x, [Address]
to 200, [Function] to Download, [Data Length] to 5, and the label content is [Upload], as shown
in the figures below:
279
Chapter 8 Recipe Data
The completed project is shown as follows:
Run the project in offline simulation mode. Firstly, set the value of LW9000 to 300 and enter
“AAAAAAAAAA” in the RWI0 text box. The operating state is shown as follows:
280
Chapter 8 Recipe Data
Click [Download]. The text data will be transferred from RW300 to 4x100.
In the above example, we find that whether uploading PLC data to the recipe memory or
downloading data from recipe memory to the PLC, the starting position of the recipe memory data
is the value corresponding to the LW9000 address. This is important for implementing some
complicated recipe data functions. The section below gives a detailed description of the usage of
the recipe memory data.
8.3
Uploading/Downloading of Recipe Data Between Touch Screen and PLC
Recipe data is very important. For example, in an industrial production line, the production
equipment can fulfill different tasks according to different parameters. We can store a group of
281
Chapter 8 Recipe Data
data to the recipe memory in a defined format and revoke such data when necessary. In this way,
we do not need to enter data temporarily, which greatly enhances production efficiency.
◆ The following example shows how to conveniently invoke multiple recipe data
Suppose we have ten groups of recipe data in total, each group consists of five words, among
which recipe name occupies four words and recipe data occupies one word. We plan our recipes
from RW0 as follows:
Rcp. Grps.
Reg. Addr.
Name of Rcp. (4 words)
Rcp. Data (1 word)
Group 0
RW0-RW4
“AAAAAAAA”
0
Group 1
RW5-RW9
"BBBBBBBB"
1111
Group 2
RW10-rw14
"CCCCCCCC"
2222
Group 3
RW15-RW19
"DDDDDDDD"
3333
Group 4
RW20-RW24
"EEEEEEEE"
4444
Group 5
RW25-RW29
"FFFFFFFF"
5555
Group 6
RW30-RW34
"GGGGGGGG"
6666
Group 7
RW35-RW39
"HHHHHHHH"
7777
Group 8
RW40-RW44
"IIIIIIII"
8888
Group 9
RW45-RW49
"JJJJJJJJ"
9999
It is expected that each group of recipe in the above figure can conveniently conduct data
exchange with PLC equipment register 4x100 through project design. Firstly, let’s take a look at a
completed project shown in the figure below to gain an overall concept. In the project, RWI0 and
RWI4 show the recipe data of group 0. Click [Download] to download the recipe data to 4x100.
Click [Upload] to upload the 4x100 data to the recipe memory. Click the [Up] direction key on the
right to query previous recipe data so that the user can modify and transfer recipe data; Click the
[Down] direction key on the right to query next recipe data.
282
Chapter 8 Recipe Data
This gives us a rough idea on the design purpose of the project. The following section will
detail the preparation process of the project.
Firstly, create a new project and select [MODBUS RTU] for the [PLC Type]
Create a text input component to display and modify the each group of recipe name. Set the
[Word No.] to 4.
Create a numeric input component to display and modify each group of recipe data.
283
Chapter 8 Recipe Data
Create a text input component and a numeric input component to display and modify the
recipe data on the PLC.
284
Chapter 8 Recipe Data
Create two recipe data transmission components: one is for downloading recipe data, and the
other is for uploading recipe data. The address for both of them is 4x100.
In addition, we have to design two buttons to enable a user to query and modify each group of
recipe data conveniently. One button is to query previous data, and the other is to query next data.
The former is a multi-state setting component. Each time when you press this button, the system
will deduct 5 from the value of LW9000 because each group of recipe data consists of five words.
Press this button once, and the RWI0 can display the data of the previous recipe, as shown in the
figure below:
285
Chapter 8 Recipe Data
The button for querying the next recipe is also a multi-state setting component. Each time
when you press this button, the system will add 5 to the value of LW9000 because each group of
recipe data consists of five words. Press this button once, and the RWI0 can display the data of
the next recipe. The upper limit for this parameter is 45 (10 groups of recipes).
How to know which group the current recipe is? What controls the value displayed by LW0?
We can make two more multi-state setting components, with the address of LW0 both. One is for
deduction and the other is for addition, without the need of any shapes, as shown in the figures
below:
286
Chapter 8 Recipe Data
Overlap the component whose [Setting Mode] is [Sub Value] on the multi-state component
created earlier whose type is also deduction and whose address is LW9000. Overlap the
287
Chapter 8 Recipe Data
component whose [Setting Mode] is [Add Value] on the multi-state component created earlier
whose type is also addition and whose address is LW9000. In this way, when we browse recipe
data, the value of LW0 changes to indicate the group number of the current data.
Place a keypad on the window and make some text decoration, and the project is completed.
Save it to disk, compile it, and run the project in the offline simulation mode:
Enter the above-mentioned ten groups of recipes into the recipe memory. Then, we turn to the
group 8, change the recipe name to “KKKKKKKK”, change the data to 1234, and click [Download],
as shown in the figure below:
288
Chapter 8 Recipe Data
We can see that the data of 4x100 changes to “KKKKKKKK”, 1234. The change in the
memory is shown as follows:
Rcp Grp
Reg. Addr.
Name of Rcp. (4 words)
Rcp. Data (1 word)
Group 0
RW0-RW4
“AAAAAAAA”

After learning the preparation process of this project, we should learn the basic project design
of recipe data. The user can make full use of the diversified features of the EV5000 configuration
software to produce better projects.

Chapter 9 Macro
Chapter 9
Macro Code
Macro instructions are a kind of advanced touch screen control method which strengthens the
functions of the touch screen. The touch screen will have the same logic and arithmetic operations
as the PLC by the programming of macros. Flexibly use of macros will enable the touch screen to
implement many powerful functions that cannot be supported by many regular components and to
make your human-machine interfaces more perfect.
The EV5000 provides totally new macros different from the macro script language modes of other
human machine interfaces. The macro is fully compatible with standard C language (ANSI C89).
Since abundant documents and data on the C language are easily available, this chapter will not
describe syntax and basic knowledge of the C language. Instead, it focuses on the creation and
usage of macros through examples.
9.1 Getting started: A Simple Macro Template
The following section describes how to compile a simple macro template, and the macro
template will implement the following simple operation functions:
Read two signed numbers, divide LW0 with LW1, and place the result of a double float in the four
words of LW2~LW5.
Click the macro icon
in the toolbar of the database or select the [Add Macrocode] command
in the [File] menu.
The following dialog box appears.
290
Chapter 9 Macro
Select an HMI number and enter a file name in the [File Name] text box. Click [Create] to enter the
macro editing window, as shown below:
Before compiling macrocodes, define input and output variables.
Right click in the [Macrocode Variable Window], and the following menu appears:
Select [Add Variable], and the following dialog box appears:
Firstly, assign a name to the variable:
291
Chapter 9 Macro
Variables are divided into two types: Reading variables and Writing variables. They are
distinguished from each other by read/write attributes. Reading variable means the macro code
will obtain the value of the variable from a designated address, while writing variable means
writing an operating result from the execution of macrocode into a designated address. Therefore,
read/write variables are different variables for the same address. Therefore, it is recommended
that _R and _W be used to distinguish them when naming a variable.
In this example, LW0 and LW1 are reading variables and LW2 is a writing variable. Therefore,
we name them as follows: LW0_R, LW1_R, LW2_W. Please note that the variable name shall
comply with the requirements of C language for variables. Particular attention shall be paid to the
following points:
1. Variable name is case sensitive.
2. Variable name cannot be a number, or started with a digit, or contains special characters
like blank and backslash.
3. Variable name cannot be any reserved keyword of C language.
In the above example, set the properties of the LW0_R as follows:
In the window, select “signed short” for Data Type, R for R/W, “LW” for Address Type, and
“0” for Address. Click OK, and the variable is registered in the Macrocode Variable Window.
Note: While compiling macrocodes, all referenced external data must be registered in the
Macrocode Variable Window in advance.
Use the same method to set LW1_R and set the address to LW1. The properties of LW2_W are set
as follows:
292
Chapter 9 Macro
Caution: Select “double” for Data Type, and the Word Length changes to “4” automatically,
that is, the variable occupies LW2~LW5.
After setting, the variable window is shown as follows:
After defining the variable, compile the codes as follows:
int MacroEntry()
{
//LW0 divided by LW1, is LW2
LW2_W=LW0_R/LW1_R;
return 0;
}
Save it to disk, and the compilation of the macro is completed. The system returns to configuration
editing window. Edit the following parameters:
Place two numeric input components, corresponding to LW0 and LW1 respectively;
Place a static text and enter “/” to indicate a division operation;
Place a numeric display component, corresponding to LW2. Select “Double” for Data Type (. Both
integer place and decimal place are 4;
Place a function key, execute the macro, and select “macro_0.c” in the drop-down list box, and
enter “=” in the (Tag) tab, as shown below:
293
Chapter 9 Macro
The configuration window is shown as follows:
Perform offline simulation and enter “5” and “2” in LW0 and Lw1 respectively, and press “=” to
obtain the result as follows:
According to our estimation, the result shall be 2.5 instead of 2. What is the problem? If the user is
familiar with the C language, he will be aware of the reason quickly. Because the data type for
LW0_R and LW1_R is “short”, according to the default type conversion principle of C language,
the division result will be rounded off to an integer. How to solve the problem? It is simple: just
convert an input value into the type of “double”:
LW2_W= (double)(LW0_R) / LW1_R;
294
Chapter 9 Macro
After modifying the macro, conduct simulation again, and the result will be:
This simple example is complete. However, this segment of codes still has a problem: What if the
LW1 input is 0? We all know the number 0 cannot be a divisor. In the C language, if a number is
divided by 0 in an operation, it will cause the error of “division by zero overflow”. In severe
circumstance, it may lead to program deadlock or exit. The macro will encounter the error of
“division by zero overflow” and affect normal operation of the system. What shall we do then? We
have to check the operand.
Modify the codes as follows:
int MacroEntry()
{
//Judge whether LW1 is 0, preventing division by zero overflow:
if ( LW1_R != 0)
//LW0 divided by LW1, is LW2
LW2_W=(double)(LW0_R)/LW1_R;
return 0;
}
Run the macro again. If the divisor is 0, the macro will not conduct the division operation, thus
enhancing the robustness of the codes.
9.2
Operating Principles of Macro Template ad Read/Write Variable
As shown in the above section, you may gain a preliminary understanding of the creation and use
of the macro template. In this section, we will introduce the operating principles of the macro
template and the precautions in the use of the macro template.
A macro template can be regarded as a black box with input and output. Taking the example in the
section 9.1 for example, the model is as follows:
295
Chapter 9 Macro
The execution principle is as follows: Before the module executes the macro, it obtains register
values of LW0 and LW1 and assigns them to the read variables LW0_R and LW1_R, and then runs
the macro template. After the macro function is returned, it will write the variable value of LW2_W
to LW2.
Therefore, macro template inner variable is only a copy of the register. Modification of the variable
value does not mean modification of register value.
Note:
1.
The macro template does not read register value in real time; instead, it reads the value
at the beginning of the macro template operation. Therefore, during the operation of the
macro template, changing the register value externally does not affect the operation
results of the macro template.
2.
The value of the macro template is not written in real time. Therefore, the variable value
assigned during the operation of the macro template will be written into the macro
template only when the operation comes to an end.
3.
The read variable is read-only and the write variable is write-only. Therefore, assigning
value for read variable or reading the value of write variable by macrocode is invalid
operation. Likewise, if an address has to perform read and write operations, it must
correspond to two different variable names, for example, LW0 corresponds to LW0_R
and LW0_W.
4.
A macro template can define temporary variables or arrays or even complex
associations. However, it cannot set global variables or static variables. To use a global
variable to save data, it is necessary to use a local address like LW, LB, and so on.
5.
The register served as output must be assigned a value.
Note:
1. Modify or delete variables in the macros
In the
[Project File Window], find the corresponding macro and enter the macro variable
window. Select a data type, right click, and then select to add, delete or modify the variable.
296
Chapter 9 Macro
A deleted variable cannot be recovered, so be cautious on this operation.
2. Deleting a complete macro file
In the [Project File Window], select a corresponding macro and click [Delete].
A deleted macro file cannot be recovered, so be cautious on this operation.
9.3
Triggering of Macro
In the EV5000, macros can be triggered flexibly in multiple modes. Flexible use of macro
triggering modes can conveniently implement more flexible and powerful functions.
Presently, the EV5000 supports the following macro triggering modes:
1.
System initialization macro:
Select the [Initialization Macro] check box in the [HMI Attribution]
tab shown in the
following window. The initialization macro will be triggered upon system startup to implement such
functions as setting initial values of registers and transferring recipes.
2.
Function key triggered macro:
Use the “Execute Macrocode” function of the function key to trigger macros, which is a
297
Chapter 9 Macro
common triggering mode.
3.
Timer triggered macro:
Use the “Execute Macrocode” function of the timer to trigger macros. The macro can be
combined with the timer trigger to implement multiple triggering modes of register triggering, timing
triggering, and window initialization triggering.
4.
PLC control macro
Set the PLC control component as shown below. Select the “Execute Macro Instruction”
option. In this way, a segment of macrocodes can be executed when a PLC register is set to 1.
5.
Event triggered macro:
Set the event triggered macro as shown below. In this way, a segment of macrocodes can be
triggered when a condition is satisfied.
9.4
Examples
The following sections will present a further explanation on macros with several interesting
298
Chapter 9 Macro
examples.
Example 1: Touch Screen Bouncing Ball
In this example, it uses macros to implement the moving of a ball in a display area. The ball will be
bounced back when it touches the border of the display area. The moving speed of the ball can be
adjusted. (Note: The data in this example is applicable to 5300L/S/T projects. In case of 5400 or
5500, enlarge the size to 640×480.)
Firstly, add a vectogram BALL.VG and draw a “bouncing ball” with a round shape. If you have a
more vivid picture, just import it.
Place a moving part in the upper-left corner of the screen; set the address to LW0 and select
“move along X and Y axes”, with the maximum value of 320 and the minimum value of 0; select
the vectogram BALL.VG;
Place two value setting components and select to set them when the window is open; set LW3 and
LW4 to 5;
Place four state setting components used to increase/decrease the value of LW3 and LW4.
The planned register space is as follows:
LW0: State of the moving shape component, always 1;
LW1: Displacement of the moving shape along X axis
LW2: Displacement of the moving shape along Y axis
LW3: Moving speed along X axis
LW4: Moving speed along Y axis
◆ Creating a macro:
Define the following variables as shown in the figure below:
Compile the following codes:
#define MAX_X 260
//Maximum displacement along X axis
#define MAX_Y 180
// Maximum displacement along Y axis
#define MIN_X 0
// Minimum displacement along X axis
#define MIN_Y 0
// Minimum displacement along Y axis
299
Chapter 9 Macro
int MacroEntry()
{
//direction: 0—increase, 1--decrease
if(direction_x_r)
{//decrease
lw1_w = lw1_r - speed_x;
if(lw1_r < MIN_X)
{
lw1_w = MIN_X;
direction_x_w = 0;
//Prevent “out-of-bounds”
//Change direction
}
}
else
{//increase
lw1_w = lw1_r + speed_x;
if(lw1_r > MAX_X)
{
lw1_w = MAX_X;
direction_x_w = 1;
}
}
if(direction_y_r)
{//decrease
lw2_w = lw2_r - speed_y;
if(lw2_r < MIN_Y)
{
lw2_w = MIN_Y;
direction_y_w=0;
}
}
else
{
lw2_w = lw2_r + speed_y;
if(lw2_r > MAX_Y)
{
lw2_w = MAX_Y;
300
Chapter 9 Macro
direction_y_w = 1;
}
}
return 0;
}
Finally, add a timer component as set below:
Select “Execute Macrocode” in the [Timer Function] tab and then select the compiled
macrocode.
Upon completion, the configuration interface is shown as follows:
Run the macro and perform offline simulation. The ball moves in the screen. Adjust the speed at
different directions and its moving track and speed change.
We can see from this example that, to implement continuous change of a certain register, the
repeat revocation of macro instructions must be used and the input and write variables for the
register to be operated must be defined.
Example 2: Domino
In this example, use a macro template to trigger the next macro template to implement a
sequential operation. In this way, a sequence of “dominoes” will be fallen down or erected in
301
Chapter 9 Macro
sequence. Firstly, draw a shape of a domino, that is, vectogram in two states: one vertical
rectangle and one horizontal rectangle, and name the shape as BRICK.VG, as shown below:
Make six lamp components, with their addresses as LB1~6 respectively. Use the vectogram
BRICK.VG. The configuration is shown in the figure below:
Make six timer components to be triggered by registers, with the triggering addresses as
LB100~LB105 respectively. Taking LB100 for example, the timer setting is as follows: Select "
Triggered by register state "
for [rigger Mode], ON for [Response State], and “Execute
immediately” for [Response Mode], and 1 for [Repeat Times]. Since it is triggered once and
immediately, it is not necessary to pay attention to execution cycle.
Then, we make six macro templates, which are to be triggered by the above-mentioned six timer
302
Chapter 9 Macro
components in sequence. LB100 triggered timer corresponds to macro_0.c, LB101 triggered timer
corresponds to macro_1.c, and so on.
The codes of macro_0.C are to change the state of the first domino. The codes are as follows:
int MacroEntry()
{
LB1_W = !(LB1_R);
LB101_W = 1;
return 0;
}
The variable is defined as follows:
When macro_0 is triggered, it will change the state of LB1 and set LB101 to 1, which will then
triggers macro_1. The macro_1 will change LB2 and set LB102 to 1. macro_2 ~ macro4 will be set
in a similar way.
Macro_5 is different. Its codes are as follows:
int MacroEntry()
{
LB6_W =!(LB6_R);
LB100_W=1;
return 0;
}
That is, macro_5 will trigger macro_0.
Make a bit setting component and set LB100 to ON. Change the label to [START] to trigger the
first timer.
The edited configuration window is shown below:
303
Chapter 9 Macro
Perform simulated operation and click [START]. The dominos will fall down one by one from left to
right, and then will erect one by one from right to left. The speed is quick without intervals.
In the [Timer] tab, select “Delay” for [Response Mode], and 10 for [Execution Cycle], as shown
below:
Compile the codes and run the macros again. We can see that the dominos will be fallen down or
erected after a delay of 1 second.
We can see from the above example that the timer triggered macros can be used to conduct
sequential operations to implement sequence and time control and to flexibly achieve desirable
results.

Print
The print function is often used in the eView MT5000/4000. In this document, there are two types
of print operations: One is the print through the Windows system, and the other is the print through
the touch screen. This chapter describes only the print with the touch screen. To use the print
function with the touch screen, it is necessary to enable the printer in the Print Settings tab in the
HMI Properties window. After that, the MT5000/4000 will display a dedicated print window
(therefore, if the print function is selected, a maximum of five pop-up windows can be displayed at
the same time). You can view the print window in the PLC Monitor of the online simulation, offline
simulation, and indirect online simulation auxiliary functions, as shown below:
MT5000/4000 supports the connection with EPSON ESC/P2 printers or other compatible printers.
MT5000/4000 supports the following print modes:
1.
Print text
2.
Print pointer
3.
Print trend graph
4.
Print all bitmaps
5.
Print all vectograms
6.
Print background color
The print function may be used in the following circumstances: Function key, screen printout and
report output controlled by PLC, and event print, as detailed below.
10.1 Function Key
Click the [Function Key] and the following window appears. In the window, select the Print option.
305
Chapter 10
Print
(Printer Color) :
The user can select (Mono) or (Color).
(Zoom): The value range is 1.0~ 2.0.
(Page Range):
(Current Page/Next Page): Select the page to be printed.
(Landscape/Portrait): Select the print mode.
(Print Content):
1. (Print text)
2. (Print meter)
3. (Print trend graph)
4. (Print all bitmaps)
5. (Print all vectograms)
6. (Print background color)
Caution: When you select the (Next Page) option in the (Page Range) frame, the printer
will skip the current page and start printing from the next page.
The print function key can be used to print screen data conveniently. The data is outputted from
the standard printer port as graphics.
10.2 Screen Printout
The background component (PLC Control) Æ
(Screen Printout) uses a bit address to control
the printout of the current screen. The printout of the current screen starts when the bit address
changes from OFF to ON.
306
Chapter 10
Print
As shown in the above figure, if LB0 is set to control the (Screen Printout) operation, when LB0
changes from OFF to ON, the current screen will be printed out. Upon the completion of printout,
the LB0 automatically returns to OFF.
The print format is controlled by LW9054. When the LW9054 are the following numbers, it will
perform corresponding print operations.
0. Print text
1. Print meter
2. Print trend graph
3. Print all bitmaps
4. Print all vectograms
5. Print background color
10.3 Report Output
The background component
(PLC Control)Æ (Report Output) uses a word address to control
the printout of a designated window. The printout of the screen starts when the entered value of
the word address is a valid window number. Upon the completion of printout, the value of the word
address changes to 0.
307
Chapter 10
Print
As shown in the above figure, if the value of LW0 is set to 4, the contents in window 4 will be
printed out. Upon the completion of printout, the LW0 automatically returns to 0. To print out a
window by the (Report Output) function, the system will not switch to the window to be printed.
The print format is also controlled by LW9054. For control functions, refer to the description given
earlier in this document.
10.4 Event Printout
When the user enters events in the (Event Entry) background component, the user can set
trigger printing. The corresponding contents will be printed out when the set condition is triggered.
If the [Bit] option is selected in the (Data Type) drop-down list box, as shown in the above figure,
308
Chapter 10
and when the
Print
(Print when triggered) check box is selected, the system will print out the
contents when the LB0 changes to ON. When the (Print when resumed) check box is selected,
the system will print out the contents when LB0 returns to OFF.
If the [Word] option is selected in the
(Data Type) drop-down list box, the following window
appears.
When the (Print when triggered) check box is selected, the system will print out the contents
when the value of LW0 is less than 0. When the (Print when resumed) check box is selected, the
system will print out the contents when LB0 resumes normal (that is, greater than or equal to 0).
10.5 Printing Failure
Printing error detection function is provided in the (HMI Properties) window.
When the printer encounters an error, the following dialog box appears.

Security Level
Security Level
Security level is used to set different access rights for different users, and only the user with
high-level password can access windows with high security levels, which greatly enhances the
security of application projects.
In the
(Window Properties) window, there is a (Security Level) option. In other words, we can
set the security level for any window, as shown below:
Please not the security level setting is valid only for base windows and not available for other
windows. A project has three security levels, namely, high (2), medium (1), and low (0). When
creating a new window, the default security level is low. In the (HMI Properties) window, the user
can set the password for each security level. When a user is in a high security level, he can access
windows with lower security levels; however, if the user is in a low security level, he cannot access
windows with higher security levels. It helps to enhance security. For example, important keys can
be configured in a window with high security level; therefore, a user cannot access such keys in
general and can only access such contents after entering the password of high security level.
The following is an example on the use of security level. Firstly, select (File)Æ (New Project) to
create a new project. Then, double click [HMI] in the (Project Structure Window). In the (HMI
Properties) window, click the (Touch Screen Extended Properties) tab and then set password
for three security levels. Here, we set the password for level 1 security to 1111, as shown below.
321
Chapter 12
Security Level
The register LW9042 is reserved by the system to display the security level of the current base
window. We can only read the reserved register LW9042, but cannot write in the LW9042. Create a
numeric display component and place it in window 0 to display the current security level, as shown
below:
The whole project is shown in the following figure:
322
Chapter 12

Save it to the disk, make compilation and then run in offline simulation mode, as shown in the
figure below:
Because no password is entered, the current security level must be 0 when the project runs.
Switch to window 4 and set the (Security Level) to (Medium, that is, 1) in the (Window

Create a function key in window 0, and its properties are designed as follows:

Press the function key, but the system fails to switch to window 4. The reason is that the current
security level is 0, while that of window 4 is 1, so the user cannot access a window with higher
security level from lower one. To access window 4, the user has to enter the password for the
security level 1. The registers LW9040~LW9041 reserved by the system are used to enter
passwords for different security levels. Add a numeric input component to window 0, as shown in
the figure below:
Select the [Password] in the (Data Type) drop-down list box, as shown below:
325
Chapter 12

Caution: The user has to enter a security level password through the reserved registers
LW9040~LW9041 of the system. Therefore, the (Words) must be set to 2.
Save it to the disk, make compilation and then run in offline simulation mode:
The current security level is 0, so the (Change Window 4) button is unavailable. Enter the
password 1111, and the current security level changes to 1, as shown in the figure below:

Then, enter the password 1111 to change the current security level to 1, as shown in the figure

Serial communication means the bit-by-bit transfer between different equipment through two data
signal cables (sometimes, a control line is required). Each data bit occupies a fixed time length.
This communication mode uses less data cables and features low cost.

During transmission of serial data, an error may occur due to interference. For example, the bits
for the character “E” during transmission are: 0100, 0101=45H. However, due to interference, the
bit may change to 1. In this case, we call it a “bit error”. The method used to check errors occurred
during transmission is “error detection”; the methods used to correct an error after detecting it is
called “error correction”. The simplest error detection method is “parity check”, that is, an
additional odd/even parity bit is transferred along with the bits of characters to be transferred.
Either odd parity or even parity may apply.
z
Odd parity: Among all bits to be transferred (including bits of characters and the parity bit),
the number of all “1” is an odd number, for example:
335
Chapter 13
Serial Communication
In the 8-bit data 01100101, the number of “1” is an even number; we append a 1 to change it to an
odd number, so the parity bit is 1.
In the 8-bit data 01100001, the number of “1” is an odd number; we append a 0 and it remains to
be an odd number, so the parity bit is 0.
z
Even parity: Among all bits to be transferred (including bits of characters and the parity bit),
the number of all “1” is an even number, for example:
In the 8-bit data 01100101, the number of “1” is an even number; we append a 0 and it remains to
be an even number, so the parity bit is 0.
In the 8-bit data 01100001, the number of “1” is an odd number; we append a 1 to change it to an
even number, so the parity bit is 1.
When the parity check is adopted, 1-bit error can be detected, but 2-bit or high errors cannot be
detected. Furthermore, detected errors cannot be corrected. Upon detection of an error, it will
request for retransmission. However, since it is easy to implement, it is widely applied.
To implement communication between two parties, the settings of data bit, start bit, stop bit, bits
per second and parity check for serial ports of both parties must be set to be the same.
The eView MT5000/4000 and most PLCs support only asynchronous transfer mode. Our
description is also based on asynchronous transfer mode. (If you are interested in synchronous
transfer mode, please refer to related documents). Certainly, entity interfaces are required as
transmission media to send or receive data in asynchronous transfer mode. This is the difference
between RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485, as detailed respectively below.
13.2 RS-232
Presently, RS-232 is the most widely applied serial interface in PC and communication industry.
RS-232 is defined as a single-ended standard to extend communication distance in low-rate serial
communication. RS-232 adopts an Unbalanced Data Transmission (UDT) interface, under which
the voltage of a single cable relative to a grounding signal cable is used to indicate the logic status
Mark or Space. A typical connection method is shown as follows:

PLC is shown as follows:

Since RS-232 adopts the full-duplex transmission mode, it has independent transmission (TD) and
receiving (RD) signal cables and a grounding signal cable. The purpose of CTS and RTS is
intended for handshaking control between the eView MT5000/4000 and the PLC. The CTS or RTS
of only a few PLCs must be controlled by the eView MT5000/4000.
The length of RS-232 connection cable is often a question. The standard length shall not exceed
50 feet (1 foot = 30 cm), or the capacitance shall not exceed 2500 pF. Based on capacitance
standard, the typical capacitance of a UTP CAT-5 connection cable is 17 pf/feet, and the maximum
337
Chapter 13
Serial Communication
length of a connection cable is 147 feet (that is, about 44 m). The value may be larger in the case
of a shielded cable, and the value may be smaller when the cable is used in an environment with
considerable interference.
Since RS-232-C interface standard was developed in an earlier time, it has the following defects:
(1). The signal level value of the interface is high, which may easily cause damage to chips of the
interface circuitry.
(2). The transmission rate is low, with a baud rate of 20 Kbps in asynchronous transmission mode.
(3). The interface uses a signal cable and a signal return cable to form a common ground
transmission mode. This common ground transmission may easily lead to common-mode
interference. Therefore, the noise suppression and anti-interference capability is low. The
higher the baud rate is, the lower the anti-interference capability will be.
(4). The transmission distance is rather limited.
13.3 RS-422
RS-422 and RS-485 are different from RS-232. For RS-422 and RS-485, data signals are
transferred in differential transmission mode, that is, balanced transmission mode. It uses a pair of
twisted pair cables, with one cable defined as A and the other defined as B. In general, the positive
level between the transmission drivers A and B is at +2 ~ +6V, which indicates a logic state, while
the negative level is at -2 ~ 6V, which indicates another logic state. In addition, there is a signal
ground C and an “Enable” end in the RS-485, while they are optional in the RS-422. The “Enable”
end is used to control the connection/disconnection between the transmission driver and the
transmission line. When the “Enable” end is active, the transmission driver is in a high-impedance
state, that is, “the third state”, a state different from the logic “1” and logic “0”, as shown in the
figure below:
+6V

Corresponding specifications are made for the receivers. AA and BB are connected with balanced
twisted pairs between the transmission end and the receiving end. When the level between AB at
338
Chapter 13
Serial Communication
the receiving end is greater than +200 mV, it outputs positive logic level; when the value is less
than -200 mV, it outputs positive logic level. The level range received by the receiver on the
balanced cable is from 200 mV to 6V, as shown in the figure below:
+6V

RS-422 standard stands for Electrical Characteristics of Balanced Voltage Digital Interface Circuits,
which defines the characteristics of the interface circuits. The following figure shows a typical
4-wire RS-422 interface. In fact, it has another signal ground cable and totally 5 cables. Since the
receiver adopts high input impedance and the transmission driver has high driving capability than
RS-232 interface, a maximum of 10 receiving nodes can be configured in the same transmission
cable. Among all these nodes, one is the master node and the others are slave nodes. Slave
nodes
cannot
communicate
with
each
other.
Therefore,
RS-422
interface
supports
point-to-multipoint bidirectional communication. Since the 4-wire RS-422 interface adopts
independent transmission and receiving channels, it is unnecessary to control data direction. Any
necessary handshaking between different devices can be implemented either in software mode
(XON/XOFF handshaking) or in hardware mode (a pair of independent twisted pairs).

Chapter 13
Serial Communication
RS-422 interfaces support a maximum transmission distance of 4000 feet (about 1219 meters)
and a maximum transmission rate of 10 Mb/s. Where, the length of the balanced twisted pair is in
inverse proportion to the transmission rate, and the maximum transmission distance can be
achieved only at the rate of 100 Kb/s. The maximum transmission rate can be achieved only within
a very short distance. In general, a twisted pair as long as 100 meters can have a maximum
transmission rate of 1 Mb/s. RS-422 needs a terminating resistor, while its resistance is equal to
the characteristic impedance of the transmission cable. The terminating resistor is not required for
short-distance transmission within 300 meters. The terminating resistor is connected to the
farthest end of the transmission cable.

13.4 RS-485
Since RS-485 is developed on the basis of RS-422, many electrical specifications of the RS-485
are similar to those of the Rs-422. Both of them adopt balanced transmission mode and the
transmission cables have to be configured with terminating resistors. RS-485 supports 2-wire and
4-wire modes. The 2-wire mode supports real multipoint bidirectional communication, where the
“Enable” signal controls the transmission and receiving of data, as shown in the figure below:

Electrical characteristics of the RS-485 are as follows: Logic “1” is indicated by the voltage
difference of + (2~6)V between two cables; logic “0” is indicated by the voltage difference of (2~6)V between two cables. RS-485 supports a maximum transmission rate of 10 Mbps. RS-485
interface adopts a combination of balanced drivers and differential receivers to enhance its
capability of preventing common-mode interference, featuring better noise suppression and
anti-interference performance. The standard maximum transmission distance is 4000 feet, but it
can achieve an actual distance of 3000 meters. In addition, the bus of the RS-232 interface can be
connected with only one receiver, that is, the single station capability. However, the bus of the
RS-485 can be connected with a maximum of 128 receivers, that is, the multi-station capability.
Therefore, the user can set up an equipment network with a single RS-485 interface. Since the
RS-485 interface has excellent noise suppression and anti-interference performance, long
transmission distance, and multi-station capability, it is widely applied. Because the half-duplex
network established through the RS-485 interface needs two connection cables, the RS-485
interface adopt shielded twisted pairs for transmission cables.

Application
environment
applications. They are designed to work stably in most industrial
environments at the temperature of 32 ~ 113°F (0~45°C). They may not be
applied to some specific outdoor environments. For specific outdoor
applications, do consult your vendor!
NEMA rating
(NEMA stands
for
National
Electrical
Manufacturers
Association)
The front panel of MT5000 series touch screens conforms to the
specifications of NEMA 4. When the product is correctly installed in a panel
in compliance with the NEMA 4 specifications, the panel still meets the
protection requirements of NEMA 4, that is, no liquid will seep through the
panel when the panel surface is sprayed with liquid.
It is proved by test that MT5000 series touch screens meet CE standard. In
Electrical
environment
other words, the circuit design of the product is able to withstand the
interference of electrical noise, but it cannot eliminate electrical noise under
all circumstances. Correct cabling and correct grounding ensure normal
operation of the product.
To ensure normal operation of the product, do not install MT5000 series
Mechanical
environment
touch screens in the environment where severe mechanical vibration or
shocks are present.
2. Installation Instructions
2.1 Installation Instructions
2.1.1 Location Considerations
Care should be taken when locating any equipment behind the MT5000 series of products to
ensure AC power wiring, PLC output modules, contactors, starters and relays, and any other
source of electrical interface are kept away from the back of these products.
Particular care should be taken to the position of variable frequency drivers and switching power
supplies. Their input and output cables should be screened to a star earth point.
2.1.2 Making a NEMA-4 Mounting
450
Appendix III Hardware Overview
The MT5000 series of products can be mounted into panels with a depth of
over 105 mm. It is recommended that the product be installed on the front
panel of a steel enclosure. To enable the user to open the front panel of the
Panel
panel smoothly, allow a clearance of at lease 25 mm around the sides of the

To seal to NEMA-4 specifications, all supplied mounting clamps must be used
Note:
and panel cannot flex more than 0.010".
2.1.3
Environmental Considerations
z The MT5000 series are to be used indoors as built-in LCD displays. Make
sure that the displays are installed correctly and that operating limits are
followed (See Hardware Specifications).
z
Do not operate the unit in areas subject to explosion hazards due to
flammable gases, vapors or dusts.
z
The unit should not be installed where fast temperature variations and/or high
humidity are present. This will cause condensation of water in the device and
cause damage to the unit.
2.2 Power Connections
Make sure all local and national electrical standards are met when installing the unit. For
details, refer to a local dealer.
2.2.1 Power Requirements

have enough current to power the MT5000.
Wire lengths of DC power should be minimized
(Maximum 500 m (shielded), 300 m (unshielded twisted
pairs)).
Twisted pairs are recommended for use.
If the wiring is to be exposed to lightning or surges, take
appropriate lightning protection measures and use
Caution!
Wire Routing
appropriate lightning arresting devices.
Keep AC, high energy, and rapidly switching DC wiring
separate from signal cables.
Equip ungrounded DC supplies with a resistor and
capacitor in parallel to earth ground. This provides a path
for static and high frequency dissipation. Typical values to
use are 1 MOhm and 4700 pF.
To make a connection, strip about 3/8” of insulation off
the end of the wire (furcate terminal recommended), turn
the connector screw counterclockwise until the gap is

wide open, insert the wire all the way in, and turn the
screw clockwise until it’s tight.
Connect positive DC line to the ‘+24V’ terminal and the
DC ground to the ‘0V‘ terminal.
2.2.2 Grounding Requirements
Chassis ground must be used. DC ground is not directly
coupled to earth ground internally. It is preferable not to
ground DC negative return to chassis ground as poor site
earths can introduce noise into a system, but if necessary an
earth connection should be made, from the power supply

Appendix III Hardware Overview
return point to the star earth point. Ground conductors should
be as short and as large in size as possible. The conductors
must always be large enough to carry the maximum short
circuit current. Ground conductors should be connected to a
star earth ground point. This ensures that no ground
conductor carries current from any other branch.
2.2.3 CE Requirements
To make the MT5000 series comply with EMC directives, and to reduce susceptibility to electrical
interference, a separate #14 AWG ground wire should be taken to the chassis ground terminal of
the power connector. This ground connection should be run directly to the star earth connection
point.
2.2.4 Safety Guidelines
This section presents recommended installation practices and procedures. Since no two
applications are identical, these recommendations should be considered as guidelines.
Hardware
Caution!
Considerations
The system designer should be aware that devices in
controller systems could fail and thereby create an
unsafe condition. Furthermore, electrical interference in
an operator interface, such as an MT5000 touch screen,
can lead to equipment start-up, which could result in
property damage and/or physical injury to the equipment
operator.
If you, or your company, use any programmable control
systems that require an operator or attendant, you should
be aware that this potential safety hazard exists and take
appropriate precautions. Although the specific design
steps depend on your particular application, the following
precautions generally apply to installation of solid-state
programmable control devices. In addition, these
precautions conform to the guidelines for installation of
controllers as recommended in the NEMA ICS 3-304
Control Standards.
453
Appendix III Hardware Overview
To conform to ICS Safety Recommendations, checks
Programming
should be placed in the controller to ensure that all
Considerations
writable registers that control critical parts of plant or
machinery have limit checks built into the program, with
an out-of-limit safe shutdown procedure to ensure safety
of personnel.
ICS 3-304.81 Safety Recommendations:
Consideration should be given to the use of an emergency stop function, which is independent of
the programmable controller.
Where the operator is exposed to the machinery, such as in loading or unloading a machine tool,
or where the machine cycles automatically, consideration should be given to the use of an
electromechanical override or other redundant means, independent of the programmable
controller, for starting and interrupting the cycle.
If provision is required for changing programs while the equipment is in operation, consideration
should be given to the use of locks or other means of assuring that only authorized personnel can
make such changes.
* These recommendations are intended as safeguards against the failure of critical components
and the effects of such failures or the inadvertent errors that might be introduced if programs are
changed while the equipment is in operation.
z The ICS 3-304.81 Safety Recommendations are reproduced by permission of the National
Electrical Manufacturers Association from NEMA ICS 3-304.
2.3 Communications Connections
The ports as you look at the back of the case, are the ports for connecting to a printer, a PLC or
some other external device (Controller Connectors).
2.3.1 Connection with External Devices
Different cables are required for various devices.
Cable requirements
Restrict cable length to less than 150m for Rs-485/422 devices and 15m
for RS-232 devices to avoid communications problems.
Caution
The display will give a prompt of “PLC no response...” for each
communications fault until the communication resumes normal. The
Caution!
Do no insert or pull out the
cable while the power is
on.
COM indicator on the front panel will light up in each communication.
Shielded cables must be used for long lengths or cables run in an
electrically noisy environment.
Do not run cables next to AC power lines or near sources of electrical
noise.

Installation of MT4000 Series Touch Screens
1. Installation Overview
1.1 Installation Environment
The MT4000 series touch screens are industrial products designed for
Application
environment
factory applications. They are designed to work stably in most industrial
environments at 32 ~ 113°F (0~45°C). They may not be applied to some
specific outdoor environments. For specific outdoor applications, do
consult your vendor!
NEMA rating
(NEMA stands
for
National
Electrical
Manufacturers
Association)
The front panel of the MT4000 series touch screens conforms to the
specifications of NEMA 4. When the product is correctly installed in a panel
in compliance with NEMA 4 specifications, the panel still meets the
protection requirements of NEMA 4, that is, no liquid will seep through the
panel when the panel surface is sprayed with liquid.
It is proved by test that the MT4000 series touch screens meet CE
Electrical
environment
standard. In other words, the circuit design of the product is able to
withstand the interference of electrical noise, but it cannot eliminate
electrical noise under all circumstances. Correct cabling and correct
grounding ensure normal operation of the product.
To ensure normal operation of the product, do not install the MT4000 series
touch screens in the environment where severe mechanical vibration or
Mechanical
shocks are present.
environment
2. Installation Instructions
2.1 Installation Instructions
2.1.1 Location Considerations
Care should be taken when locating any equipment behind the MT4000 series of products to
ensure AC power wiring, PLC output modules, contactors, starters and relays, and any other
source of electrical interface are kept away from the back of these products.
Particular care should be taken to the position of variable frequency drivers and switching power
supplies. Their input and output cables should be screened to a star earth point.
2.1.2 Making a NEMA-4 Mounting
470
Appendix III Hardware Overview
The MT4000 series of products can be mounted into panels with a depth of
over 105 mm. It is recommended that the product be installed on the front
panel of a steel enclosure. To enable the user to open the front panel of the
Panel
panel smoothly, allow a clearance of at lease 25 mm around the sides of the
Details
installed product. To ensure smooth and easy connection of power supply and
cables, it is recommended that a panel with a depth of at least 105 mm should
be adopted.
Put the unit through the panel holes. Slide the clamps into the 4 holes provided
NEMA-4
around the case. Tighten the clamping screws in an even pattern until the unit
Installation
is secured in the panel.
Do not over-tighten mounting clamps!
Caution!
Specifications Note:
To seal to NEMA-4 specifications, all supplied mounting clamps must be used
Note:
and panel cannot flex more than 0.010".
2.1.3 Environmental Considerations
z
The MT4000 series are to be used indoors as built-in LCD displays. Make
sure that the displays are installed correctly and that operating limits are
followed (See Hardware Specifications).
z
Do not operate the unit in areas subject to explosion hazards due to
flammable gases, vapors or dusts.
z
The unit should not be installed where fast temperature variations and/or high
humidity are present. This will cause condensation of water in the device and
cause damage to the unit.
2.2 Power Connections
Make sure all local and national electrical standards are met when installing the unit. For
details, refer to a local dealer.
2.2.1 Power Requirements
Input voltage: 24V ±15%
Current: Starting current : 4300L<1A, 4300S<1A, 4300C<1.2A,
Power Supply
4300T<1.2A
Working current : 4300L<500mA, 4300S<500mA ,
4300C<600mA, 4300T<600mA
Fusing
Requirement
If the display does not come on within 2 seconds of power-up, turn
off the power immediately. An internal fuse will prevent damage if
the polarity of the DC power is incorrect. Check wiring to ensure
proper connections and try to power up again.

input circuitry to the controller, with the same power supply.
Voltage
Condition
Note: The 24 VDC output from some controllers may not have
enough current to power the MT4000.
Wire lengths of DC power should be minimized (Maximum 500 m
(shielded), 300 m (unshielded twisted pairs)).
Twisted pairs are recommended for use.
If wiring is to be exposed to lightning or surges, take appropriate
lightning protection measures and use appropriate lightning
Caution!
arresting devices.
Wire Routing
Keep AC, high energy, and rapidly switching DC wiring separate
from signal cables.
Equip ungrounded DC supplies with a resistor and capacitor in
parallel to earth ground. This provides a path for static and high
frequency dissipation. Typical values to use are 1 MOhm and
4700 pF.
To make a connection, strip about 3/8” of insulation off the end of
the wire (furcate terminal recommended), turn the connector
screw counterclockwise until the gap is wide open, insert the wire
Connection
all the way in, and turn the screw clockwise until it’s tight.
Connect positive DC line to the ‘+24V’ terminal and the DC ground
to the ‘0V‘ terminal.
2.2.2 Grounding Requirements
Chassis ground must be used. DC ground is not directly coupled
to earth ground internally. It is preferable not to ground DC negative
return to chassis ground as poor site earths can introduce noise into
a system, but if necessary an earth connection should be made,
from the power supply return point to the star earth point. Ground
conductors should be as short and as large in size as possible. The
conductors must always be large enough to carry the maximum
472
Appendix III Hardware Overview
short circuit current. Ground conductors should be connected to a
star earth ground point. This ensures that no ground conductor
carries current from any other branch.
2.2.3 CE Requirements
To make the MT4000 series comply with EMC directives, and to reduce susceptibility to
electrical interference, a piece of separate #14 AWG ground wire should be taken to the chassis
ground terminal of the power connector. This ground connection should be run directly to the
star earth connection point.
2.2.4 Safety Guidelines
This section presents recommended installation practices and procedures. Since no two
applications are identical, these recommendations should be considered as guidelines.
Hardware
Considerations
Caution!
The system designer should be aware that devices in controller
systems could fail and thereby create an unsafe condition.
Furthermore, electrical interference in an operator interface, such as
an MT4000 touch screen, can lead to equipment start-up, which
could result in property damage and/or physical injury to the
equipment operator.
If you, or your company, use any programmable control systems that
require an operator or attendant, you should be aware that this
potential safety hazard exists and take appropriate precautions.
Although the specific design steps depend on your particular
application, the following precautions generally apply to installation of
solid-state programmable control devices. In addition, these
precautions conform to the guidelines for installation of controllers as
recommended in the NEMA ICS 3-304 Control Standards.
Programming
Considerations
To conform to ICS Safety Recommendations, checks should be
placed in the controller to ensure that all writable registers that control
critical parts of plant or machinery have limit checks built into the
program, with an out-of-limit safe shutdown procedure to ensure
safety of personnel.
ICS 3-304.81 Safety Recommendations:
Consideration should be given to the use of an emergency stop function, which is independent of
the programmable controller.
Where the operator is exposed to the machinery, such as in loading or unloading a machine tool,
or where the machine cycles automatically, consideration should be given to the use of an
electromechanical override or other redundant means, independent of the programmable
473
Appendix III Hardware Overview
controller, for starting and interrupting the cycle.
If provision is required for changing programs while the equipment is in operation, consideration
should be given to the use of locks or other means of assuring that only authorized personnel can
make such changes.
* These recommendations are intended as safeguards against the failure of critical components
and the effects of such failures or the inadvertent errors that might be introduced if programs are
changed while the equipment is in operation.
z The ICS 3-304.81 Safety Recommendations are reproduced by permission of the National
Electrical Manufacturers Association from NEMA ICS 3-304.
2.3 Communications Connections
The ports as you look at the back of the case, are the ports for connecting to a printer, a PLC or
some other external device (Controller Connectors).
2.3.1 Connection with External Devices
