how to upload MMCX (RTYPE 36) to 800xA system
Does any body having face with our problem and any solution available ?
We have one system upgrade projects which only using 800xA SV5.1 to replace the OS500 Unix Stations, all AC450 / AC410 controllers are remained, the connectivity is for advant master.
Normally we use VB tools of 800xA to convert Unix Station Graphic files into VB displays, then we use VB graphics converter to PG2 ones.
We find one kind of MMCX ( RTYPE 36) display elements failure during the converting, because they were not belonged to the standard types in the unix station library, And now our our advant master objects of 800xA system also miss these aspects.
We try to use "MB300 User RefType object type " or "MMCX1" under the objective structure to creat its function properites, parameters and graphic elements, but we cannot upload these objects from the AC450 controllers, we can do nothing now.

MMCX with RTYPE=36 is a Pulp and Paper solution developed by Sinagapore Projects group originaly for a Paper Mill in Australia. The type circuits then became faily standard in Paper Mill AC450 applications used elsewhere. If I recall correctly, the MMCX is a variable speed drive.
The Object is being uploaded correctly, but you are missing a library for the RTYPE 36 variant, so the uploader cannot create all of the required aspects for this object.
You should talk to the DCS projects group in Singapore about this object. There is a standard solution available. If you cannot get the files that you need from them, then I can probably put you in contact with the original customer that uses MMCX type 36. They already upgraded to 800xA several years ago and do have a solution for this.
