Features
Alarms
Alarms

Display an alarm message on screen to notify the operator when a parameter or process goes out of bounds.

Alarms
Alarm Basics
  • Alarms are pre-defined messages that display on-screen when a certain event occurs
  • Alarms are used to notify the operator of a condition requiring immediate attention
  • Alarms are triggered by a bit or coil in the controller, causing a pre-defined message to appear in the alarm list
  • MAPware-7000 lets you create up to 255 alarms and display them in either a real-time or historical window
Real-Time Alarms
Real-time alarms are programmed to trigger when certain events in your process occur. Alarms display in real-time to show the current status of a process. When real-time alarms are triggered, they remain on the display window until they are acknowledged. The alarm condition then returns to its normal state.

Display real-time alarms with different text colors to delineate the state of the alarm (active unacknowledged, active acknowledged, or inactive unacknowledged), severity, date and time, etc.

Historical Alarms
Historical alarms are a sequential history of your application's alarm activity. Stored in non-volatile memory, they remain even when the machine is turned off. Historical alarms can be displayed with the severity level, date, and time the alarm occurred, when it was acknowledged, and when it returned to normal. A historical alarm list can also be uploaded to the PC and saved as a CSV file using MAPware-7000.

Alarms


Alarm Configuration
Configure alarm Windows® with scroll bars (left/right/up/down) to view long or wide alarm lists. Export the alarm data in MAPware-7000 as a CSV file for editing, then import it back into MAPware-7000.


Severity Categorization
Alarms can be categorized and filtered by severity by assigning one of nine severity levels to each alarm. Then choose which alarm numbers you wish to view. For example, easily view alarms with a severity level of six or higher, etc.


Additional Useful Features
  • Alarms can be configured to use consecutive registers to increase speed and efficiency of displaying alarms
  • The Auto-Acknowledge feature allows the operator to press one key for the option to acknowledge either each alarm separately, or all active alarms
  • Alarms can be logged and stored in the unit's non-volatile memory to be viewed at a later time
  • If desired, alarms messages can be sent to a serial printer connected to the unit
For more information on Alarms, refer to the MAPware-7000 Programming Manual or watch one of our Training Videos:
Local Alarms in Native Ladder
Local Alarms in IEC Mode
External Alarms in IEC Mode.

See the Documentations and Resources tab for more information on our training videos, sample projects, manuals, and tech notes.

Data Logging and Trend Graphs
Data Logging and Trend Graphs

Data Logging
Data Logging
The Data Logger available in the HMC3000 series is used to record values of tags over time. Data is collected and stored in the HMI + PLC's non-volatile memory or attached SD card and can be displayed on the HMI + PLC screen using the Historical Trend or Real Time Trend objects. The Data Logging feature is most often used for data acquisition where the HMI + PLC gathers and saves important process information for analysis.

  • Data logging is configured in groups
  • Up to four groups can be created, and each group can have a maximum of 30 registers
  • Up to 20MB of internal memory or 32GB of external SD card memory can be configured for data logging
  • Data logging can start immediately on power up or the start times can be pre-configured in the Data Logger Start Time/Stop Time fields
  • Data logging start and stop times can be controlled by a push-button or a system bit
  • Data logged to the external SD card can be sent to an external FTP server at a user specified periodic interval
Trend Graphs
Trend Graphs Use real-time trend and historical trend objects to capture and graph data over a period of time:

  • Real-Time trends display data as sampled in real time
  • Data from up to four registers can be plotted in the trend graph
  • Use Historical Trends to review data recorded by the Data Logger
Viewing Data
Collected data can be viewed several ways:

  • Plotted as a historical graph
  • Uploaded to a USB Flash Drive (can be in CVS format)
  • Uploaded with MAPware-7000 configuration software and viewed
  • Sent to a remote FTP server at periodic intervals
Printing Data
Data Logger records can be sent to a serial printer connected to the HMI + PLC.

  • Define needed data and configure the data print-out
  • Start and stop the print process using screen buttons or by using one or more programmable function keys.


Data Monitor
The Data Monitor feature is a window available in the MAPware-7000 software that displays data values in unit's internal memory. The entire internal memory of the unit is accessible using the Data Monitor but you select what areas of memory you wish to monitor. In addition to reading values, you can modify data online or create a table of preset values to download to the registers. With this feature, you can quickly view data in table format or to initialize areas of memory in the unit. In addition to reading values, you can modify data online or create a table of preset values to download to the registers.

For more information on the Data Monitor feature, refer to the MAPware-7000 Programming Manual.

Data Window
Data Window

This handy feature is similar to a Watch window. It allows you to construct a table of memory addresses that can be monitored from the MAPware-7000 software while your PC is connected 'online' to a Maple PLC.

Data Window
The Data Window provides an easy tool that can be used to debug your project. In addition, the Data Window can also be used to download preset values to the PLC for testing.

Additionally, the Data Window allows you to:
  • New block ? displays the Define Block dialog box. Use to define a block of data viewed in the Data Monitor.
  • Delete block ? displays the Delete Block dialog box. Select which block of data you wish to remove from the Data Monitor.
  • Edit block ? displays the Edit Block dialog box. Use to modify an existing block (i.e. change address, size, color, etc.).
  • Import Data ? import a Data Monitor file (in *.CSV format) that was created in a different project. Useful if you wish to monitor the same addresses.
  • Export Data ? export a Data Monitor file (in *.CSV format) so that you do not have to recreate the Data Monitor list in another project.
For more information on the Data Window feature, refer to the MAPware-7000 Programming Manual.
Debug Mode
Debug MOde

The Debug feature provides various functions that can be helpful when troubleshooting the ladder logic in your unit. A debugger allows users to slow down the execution of a ladder logic sequence to a human time scale so that they can see what the unit is doing one ladder instruction at a time. This is the best way to understand what the unit is doing while it is occurring. The Debugger allows the user to set breakpoints to halt execution at a particular point in the logic and then step through, one instruction at a time, watching the data fields update at each and every step.

To use the Debug options, you must be online. Up to eight breakpoints can be set to pause logic operation at different points. The watch window can be used to monitor tags while debugging, and variable can be added or removed during runtime.

Supported debugging commands:
  • Set Breakpoint - set a breakpoint where you would like the logic to pause
  • Go to Breakpoint - execute logic up to the next set breakpoint
  • Remove Breakpoint - remove a breakpoint that is no longer needed
  • Single Step - execute ladder logic one instruction at a time
  • Single Scan - forces the ladder logic to perform a single scan, then stops at the current active step instruction
  • Show/Hide Watch Window - displays the watch window. Similar to the Data Monitor Window, the watch window is only available in Debug mode and is used to watch specified address tags
For more information on the Debug feature, refer to the MAPware-7000 Programming Manual.
Fonts and Languages
Fonts and Languages

True Type Fonts
Display text and labels with True Type fonts available on the Windows® operating system.

  • Utilize Windows® True Type fonts for text and object labels
  • Access a wide variety of fonts
  • Select font size, color, style (bold, italic, black), and effect (underline, strike-through)

Multi-Language Feature
The multi-Language feature enables the programmer to configure the project for use in many countries around the world that may use a different language. You can configure each object or text box with multiple labels, each designed for a unique language. During operation of the unit, display a screen that allows the operator to select which language he/she prefers to use. Once selected, all the objects and text boxes immediately depict the appropriate label.

  • Configure projects in up to nine different languages
  • Assign various languages to text using a Language Tag to display the correct language
  • For international markets, create one project that can display text in different languages with the simple press of a button
The Import Text Objects and Export Text Objects
The Import Text Objects and Export Text Objects features allow you to export a listing of all objects that can display Multilingual (Windows fonts) text. This is particularly handy when using the Multiple Language feature. Instead of entering each language object-by-object in MAPware-7000, you can export to a CSV (comma-separated value) file, and then edit the file using another application such as Microsoft Excel.

For more information on Fonts & Languages, refer to the MAPware-7000 Programming Manual or watch our video Multiple Languages.

FTP Server
FTP Server

To use the FTP feature there must be an FTP server accessible at the configured IP address. The FTP server must be configured with the user and password specified and must permit write access for that user. The SD card must be present and contain a log file to send.

Provided the above conditions are met, the unit will periodically upload a *.csv file to the FTP server. A new file is created each time the unit transmits data logger data to the FTP server. Each file will contain only the data recorded since the last file was sent.

The name of each *.csv file consists of the file name specified for the group number, appended with the date and time information for when the file was sent. The period contained in each log file is determined by the Send File at Every field in the FTP Client Configuration window.
Logs are kept on the SD card that detail what data has been sent to the FTP server. Data transmission can be turned on or off with a button press. To use the FTP feature, there must be an FTP server accessible at the configured IP address. The FTP server must be configured with the user and password specified and must permit write access for that user. The SD card must be present in the HMC and contain a log file to send.
FTP Server

The MLC2 PLC model has an additional option when using the Data Logger feature described above. Data collected from the Data Logger can be transferred to a *.CSV file, then immediately sent to an FTP Server via the Ethernet port or one of the serial ports.

For more information on the FTP Server, refer to the MAPware-7000 Programming Manual

Logic Blocks
Logic Blocks

Use ladder logic or IEC61131-3 programming to create the logic for monitoring and controlling your system.
Logic Blocks
An important aspect of MAPware-7000 is the ability to separate your PLC application into logic blocks. Logic blocks help to keep your project organized and easier to code. Up to 256 logic blocks can be created. In MAPware-7000, there are five types of logic blocks:

  • Power Up – As the name implies, this type of logic block executes only once at the beginning of program execution.
  • Main – Each main logic block is executed during every scan cycle of the program.
  • Subroutine – A subroutine logic block is very similar to a main logic block except that it is only executed when specifically called from another routine.
  • Timer Interrupts – Timer Interrupts are immediately executed whenever the assigned timer expires. The time interval can be set from 1 to 1000 msec.
  • Hardware Interrupts – These are logic blocks that are executed when an assigned digital input is active. Two hardware interrupt routines are available for each project.

Objects – Bit/Coil Based
Objects – Bit/Coil Based

The MAPware-7000 software provides many options for displaying and writing to bit/coil registers. Bit/coil registers are two state registers that are used to represent an 'ON' and 'OFF' condition. Bit registers often display lamps or buttons that control a target bit.
Bit Lamp
Bit lamps indicate the current state of a bit register using a graphic image (i.e. lamp) or text (i.e. ON/OFF). When a bit lamp is on a screen that is currently displayed on the unit, the unit continuously polls the target bit register to determine which state image to display.

Bit Display
Bit Display indicates the current state of a bit register using two predefined messages (i.e. ON/OFF). The current value read in the targeted bit/coil message determines what message displays. Messages can be of varying length (maximum of 40 characters). When a bit data display is on the screen, the unit continuously polls the target bit register to determine which message to display.

Set-Bit
The Set Bit button sets a targeted bit/coil. The button displays with either text labels or a graphic image to represent two states. When a set bit button is on screen, the unit continuously polls the target bit register to determine which state to display (feedback tag must be enabled to display two states).

Reset Bit
The Reset Bit button resets (clears) a targeted bit/coil. The button displays with either text labels or a graphic image to represent two states. When a reset bit button is on screen, the unit continuously polls the target bit register to determine which state to display (feedback tag must be enabled to display two states).

Momentary Bit
When a momentary bit button is on screen, the unit continuously polls the target bit register to determine which state to display (feedback tag must be enabled to display two states).

Toggle Bit
The Toggle Bit button alternates setting and clearing a targeted coil each time the button is pressed. When pressed by the operator, the unit reads the current value of the coil, and then sends a command to set or reset the coil depending upon the value read. The button shows text labels or a graphic image that is used to represent two states. When a toggle bit button is on screen, the unit continuously polls the target bit register to determine which state to display (feedback tag must be enabled to display two states).

Bit Entry
Bit Entry is used to set/clear a targeted bit/coil. Two predefined messages display according to the current value read in the targeted bit/coil. Messages can be of varying length (maximum of 40 characters). When a bit entry is on a screen that is currently shown on the display, the unit continuously polls the target bit register to determine which message to display.

Objects – Register-based
Objects – Register-based

There are many options for displaying and writing to 16/32-bit registers. Register-based objects display the value in an internal or PLC register and allow the operator to write new values. Register-based objects can also display predefined messages or images depending upon the 'state' or range of values in the register.

Word Lamp
Word lamps display predefined text labels or images shown according to the 'state' of the target address. Each state represents a single value or range of values tied to a particular text label or image. The unit continuously polls the target register to determine which state image to display. A maximum of 32 states are supported. Word lamps are used where more than two choices are required. For example, a tri-state condition with Run, Auto, and Manual modes may be indicated using a word lamp.

Numeric Display
Numeric Display shows the current value of an 8/16/32-bit register. The value can be displayed using a number of formats (i.e. signed, unsigned, floating point), and special effects (ex. flash, color, visibility). The numeric display object supports linear scaling (engineering units) with the ability to scale the read value based upon two mathematical operations. When a numeric display is on a screen of the unit, the unit continuously polls the target register to show the current value.

Message Display
Message Display shows a predefined set of messages depending upon the value read in a targeted register. Messages can be of varying length (max of 40 characters). Maximum number of messages is 255.

Note: if the value read from the targeted register is not within any of the predefined ranges, then the message displayed is blank. When a message data display is on a screen of the unit, the unit continuously polls the target register.

Numeric Entry
The Numeric Entry shows the current value of an 8/16/32-bit register and allows the operator the ability to write a new value. The value displays using a number of formats (i.e. signed, unsigned, floating point, and ASCII). The numeric entry object supports linear scaling (engineering units) with the ability to scale the read value based upon two mathematical operations. When a numeric entry is on a screen of the unit, the unit continuously polls the target register to show the current value.

Multi-Task Single-State Button
The Multi-Task Single-State button performs a set of predefined tasks whenever the button is pressed. The button displays with text labels or a graphic image that represents two states. When a Multi-Task Single-State button is on screen, the unit continuously polls the target bit register to determine which state to display (feedback tag must be enabled to display two states).

Multi-Task Multi-State Button
The Multi-Task Multi-State button performs a set of predefined tasks whenever the button is pressed. The tasks performed depend upon which 'state' the button is in when pressed. The button displays with text labels or a graphic image to represent the states. Whenever the button is pressed, the object performs the programmed tasks for that state. The unit continuously monitors a target tag address to determine which state the button is in.

Basic Objects and Animation Properties


Objects – Tag Based
Objects – Tag Based

Screens and tags are not useful in and of themselves. Tags contain data that represent machine operation, but without a means of interacting with this data there is no way for an operator to understand or control what the machine is doing. This section explores the various graphic objects a programmer can place on the screen, exposing program data to the operator, and fulfilling the Human Machine Interface function of the unit.

General Object Properties
Object Properties control an object's appearance and function. The programmer can configure these properties using the Property Grid which displays the properties of the currently selected object. Most of the objects placed onto a screen share common properties such as color, border, label, line color, font, language, text, feedback, style, and overall properties.

Flash Animation
Dynamically 'flash' selected object. 'Flash' means the object displays on screen periodically depending upon the value in a tag register. This can indicate an alarm condition or attract the operator's attention.

Visibility Animation
Use this feature to make the object disappear. A tag address monitored to determine when the object becomes invisible ? made visible only when needed. This helps to reduce clutter on screen and focus the operator's attention to the area of the screen that is most important.

Flash
This is similar to the Flash Animation feature described above except a tag register does not control this option. Therefore, if enabled, the Flash feature continues as long as the object displayed.

Simple Drawing Tools and Static Objects
The MAPware-7000 software provides many drawing tools used to create simple graphics on a screen. Sophisticated static objects are also available to display graphics or text.
  • Static objects (as opposed to dynamic objects) are screen objects that do not change what displays on screen.
  • Dynamic objects (such as lamps or numeric input registers) change according to the value of a coil or register in a PLC or internal memory of the unit.

Real Time XY Plots
Real Time XY Plots

Real Time XY Plots
XY Plot (single point): Plot the value in one register against the value in another register. A single point is displayed on the plot, the position of the point changes as the values in the registers change over time. Reference lines can be added to the grid to help determine if the data points are within an acceptable range. An error message will display along the bottom of the plot when values are read that are outside the specified grid range.

XY Plot (multipoint ? IEC programming mode only): In this mode, data points (historic) previously recorded are not erased when new data points (current) are read. Up to 100 historic data points can be displayed. Data can be retentive so that it is maintained even if power is removed from the HMI + PLC. When the Data Point with Line and Line Only features are used, a line is drawn between each data point.

Other features include:
  • Customizable colors, labels, and grid lines
  • Display up to three reference lines to delineate the acceptable range of values (single-point only)
  • Display multiple points with or without an interconnecting line (multi-point only)
  • Supports signed and unsigned integers, BCD, hexadecimal, and floating point

For more information on the Real-Time XY Plots, refer to the MAPware-7000 Programming Manual.
Real-Time Clock
Real-Time Clock

The internal battery powers the real-time clock (RTC) when the unit is not powered by external 24VDC. Normally, the internal battery should be able to provide power to the RTC for approximately 20 years (@25°C).
Reading the Date/Time
The Clock objects (Time and Date) are used to display the date and time on an HMI + PLC screen. Each field of the RTC data can also be read and individually displayed on screen by using the designated system word registers (SW10 thru SW16) in the tag database.
For more information on the Real-Time Clock, refer to the MAPware-7000 Programming Manual.
Real-Time Monitoring
Real-Time Monitoring

MAPware-7000 offers the ability to run your application on your unit while going online with it and simultaneously monitoring the logic in real-time from your PC. This important testing capability allows you to monitor and analyze the functionality of your application as it actually runs.
Offline Monitoring
For more information on the Real-Time Monitoring, refer to the MAPware-7000 Programming Manual.
Recipes
Recipes

Easily manage batch processes by selecting different batch variables used for a specific process with the simple push of a button.
Recipes
Using Recipes
A Recipe is an arrangement of internal registers in the unit's non-volatile memory that are used for pre-defined process control. The advantage of using recipes is in batch processing applications in which a series of unique values or set points are required to produce or perform an operation. If there are several different batches or recipes, then the recipe features makes it easier for the plant floor operator to select which recipe they need for the current job, downloaded the preset values to the PLC from the HMI with the press of a button, and start the job.

  • Register values can be stored, modified by the operator, and the selected batch moved from the Recipe memory into the PLC/HMI memory
  • Multiple recipes can be created to achieve desired application requirements

Remote Access
Remote Access

Select models have a built-in web server that allow the remote user to both view and modify data in the unit. Screens are displayed in the web browser as if it were a website. Only text-based objects and static images are supported in this type of screen.

Web Screens

Select models have a built-in web server, accessible from any Internet web browser, allowing remote access to HMI/PLC data from a remote computer on the Ethernet network or, if exposed to the Internet, from anywhere in the world. A username and password are required, ensuring security. The screen is displayed in the web browser as if it were a website. Web screens allow the remote user to both view and modify data in the HMI + PLC.

Up to 10 simultaneous connections are allowed. The objects used on web screens are restricted to text-based data display / input objects, static images and navigation buttons.

Up to 100 screens can be created using MAPware-7000. Up to 100 objects (i.e. text, bitmaps, bit and register data values, and buttons) are available per screen. Ten users can be connected to the MLC3 PLC simultaneously.

The following objects are available for use on web screens:

Screens
Screen Types
In MAPware-7000, you can configure or define a screen to be one of the following:

Base Screen
Create as many base screens as are required for your application. Use buttons or tasks to change from one screen to another. A base screen fills the entire area of the display.

Pop-up Screen
A pop-up screen is displayed on top of a base screen and can be used to display additional information related to the base screen. A popup screen must be smaller than the underlying base screen.

Template Screen
A template screen also fills the entire area of the display but is not called directly by a button or function key on the HMI + PLC. A template screen is displayed by attaching it to a base screen. When displayed, all objects on the template screen are underlayed on the base screen.

Keypad Screen
A keypad screen is a specialized pop-up screen used to enter numbers or ASCII characters in a data entry display. There are four pre-defined popup keypad screens: numeric keypad, hex keypad, bit keypad, and ASCII keypad. These can be edited and custom keypads can be created.

Web Screen
Web screens are viewed by connecting to the HMI + PLC's built-in web server with an Internet browser. The HMI + PLC's web screens display in the browser as if it were a website, providing remote access to the unit for viewing system status information. See Remote Access feature for more information.

Security and Passwords

Access Levels
The Access Level feature available on select models allows you to create users and passwords assigned to different access levels. These levels can then be assigned to screens and used to restrict access. When accessing a protected screen, a "Screen access denied" error will show for users that have not logged in or do not have the required level of access. Additional features:

  • Auto log out feature
  • Alphanumeric usernames and passwords
  • Ability to change passwords during runtime
  • Up to 255 Access Levels
  • Predefined user login screen
  • Display specific screen once a user has logged on
Security and Passwords
Protecting Project Screens
Screens can also be individually protected by creating a password in the Screen Properties dialog box. Once entered, any future operator must enter the correct screen password using an on-screen numeric pop-up keypad in order to get to that screen.

Intellectual Property ‐ Project Password
MAPware-7000 offers the ability to password-protect the entire development project to protect your intellectual property. Creating an optional project password is a way to protect your project (and intellectual property) from unauthorized modification. The password can be up to 8 alphanumeric characters in length. If a password is created in the project configuration window, the correct password must be entered to open the project file for review or editing.
Note: A project password is not required.

Care must be taken to remember the project password, as it is not recoverable if forgotten. It is not possible to recover a project if the password has been forgotten or lost.

Remote Access
All remote access web screens are protected and require a username and password.

Backlight/Screen Saver Password Security

The HMI can be configured to go into a backlight/screen saver mode after a predefined length of time, up to 90 minutes, without any operator input. The operator reactivates the screen by touching it, but a username and password can be configured before normal operation is restored. This can be used as an auto-logout type feature at the end of shifts, ensuring that only authorized personnel can reactivate the HMI to begin the next shift.

For more information on Security and Passwords, refer to the MAPware-7000 Programming Manual.


Tasks
Tasks
tasks can be performed by pressing a button when a particular screen is displayed or when the HMI + PLC is powered on.
Tasks
Task Actions
An integral part of the MAPware-7000 configuration software is the ability to create tasks. Tasks are pre-defined actions executed by the HMI + PLC program. More than 50 different actions can be performed utilizing the Task feature. The number of tasks created is limited only by the total amount of available memory in the HMI + PLC.

Actions include:

  • Writing values to tag registers
  • Setting the RTC
  • Displaying new screens
  • Adding or subtracting a constant value to a Tag
  • Turning bits on and off
  • And many more
Task Triggers
Each task has two fundamental components: the action taken when the task is activated and the triggering mechanism causing the action to be performed.

Tasks can be triggered when:

  • The unit powers up
  • A screen opens or closes
  • A button is pressed or released
  • Continuous Screen Tasks
  • A button is pressed and held
  • Continuous Global Tasks
Assigning Tasks
Tasks can be assigned to:

  • A screen object (such as a touchscreen button)
  • Base screens and popup screens
  • The entire project (Power On and Global Tasks)
For more information on Tasks, refer to the MAPware-7000 Programming Manual, or watch our video, Tasks and Function Keys.
