How to show IO Channel numbers linked with Tags from graphics diplay or faceplate.
From the Grahics display whenever we access any IO Tags, we cannot get to know which channel is connected.
If required we have to navigate to the Control Project/Control Modules connections/Function Disigner Logics.
Can anyone tell, is there any ways are there?
Log on as an Engineer using a workstation with Control Builder M installed ...
Control Builder : Open the project and go online
Workplace : Right Click on Graphic Element -> Project Explorer -> Double Click object to open the editor -> In the variables grid right click and use the search functions.
Explanation : In offline mode, the programing tool does not connect your variables to the actual IO channels. You need to compile the program to resolve I/O variables to the actual I/O hardware channel. The only ways to compile the program are either to go online or go to test mode in control builder.
You can print documentation in online or test mode to get a Word Document of the program listings and their resolved IO connections.
One more option is to use AC800M status monitoring and tag navigation feature. This feature allows navigation directly to object faceplate from the hardware configuration in the control structure. But this feature can be used only in plant explore workplace or engineering workplace.
