Introduction
PWS comes with a 10.4" TFT LCD of a high resolution (640x480) and is
IP65/NEMA4 proof with water and dust-resistant. PWS is CE marked and meets
your need to be highly transient-resistant while it is in operation. Also, its compact
design makes connections with other machinery more flexible, thus achieving the
optimal performance of your machines. The latest released ADP Version 6.1 and
above is used to design applications of PWS; it is reliable, user-friendly and
compatible with many models.

If any of the above items does not pass a self-test, it will be noted with “Failed”
next to the item and the “Error! Press screen to continue” message will also show
up on the bottom of the screen. If power to PWS or PC was interrupted while
downloading, the item “Firmware Checksum” or “Application Checksum” will not
pass a self-test and will be noted with “Failed” after power is restored. The
situation is normal and users can simply follow the download procedures to redownload an application or data. After downloading, all items should pass the next
self-test.

Setting a Password - 4 Scenarios
Scenario 1: A password is required to start PWS.
If the dip switch SW6 is ON, then a user needs to enter a password to start PWS.
For this purpose, the Object - Action Button in ADP is available for a designer
to create a button which displays a Password Table on PWS, so a user with the
right of access to the table can register passwords and user’s levels in the table.
Figure 8 is an example to display a Password Table on PWS; in this example,
button is an action button which displays a Password Table. Select this
button and then a Password Table will be displayed on the screen for the user
with the right to access the table. (For the details on the Action Button, please
refer to ADP User’s Manual.)
Figure 8. An example of setting a password
After registering passwords and user’s levels, set the dip switch SW6=ON (i.e.
password required). Restart PWS and after a self-test a user will be asked to
input a password to run PWS. PWS will determine a user’s level from a
password entered by a user. For instance, if the level of a password entered by a
user is 2, then PWS will set the user’s level=2. The user’s level 1 has the
highest privilege and the user’s level 9 has the lowest. Also note that only a user
with the user’s level 1 has the right of access to the Password Table.
Scenario 2: Re-enter a password.
The Object - Action Button in ADP is also available for a designer to create a
button which asks a user to re-enter a password. For example, select
button and then the password keypad will be displayed asking for a password.
See below. PWS will update a user’s level according to the most recent password which has been entered. Therefore, this button can be applied to raise or
drop one’s privilege while PWS is in operation. (For the details on the Action
Button, please refer to ADP User’s Manual.)
Scenario 3: A password is asked to execute a button on PWS.
A designer can design a button which requires a password to execute it. For
example, a Goto Screen button can be designed with a high level of security;
that is, it will require a password with a high level of privilege. As the button is
selected and the current user has a lower privilege than the button which has
been set for, PWS will prompt a user to ask for a password. See above. A user
will need a password with at least the level of privilege which the button has
been set for. This function can restrict a user to access to certain parts of an
application.
Scenario 4: Enter a password to copy or upload an application.
Once F3 – Copy in the System Menu or [File] / [Upload Application] in ADP is
selected, PWS will also prompt a user to ask for a password. A user will need to
enter the correct password to download or copy an application from one PWS to
another. Note that this password is different from those passwords set in
Scenario 1~3. To set this password, select [Application] / [Workstation Setup]
in ADP. On the [Password] tab, a designer is then able to set the password.
