PP835 Panel Builder 6
I have a customer with PP835 and used Panel Builder version 5.
Version 5 is going away in some years.
Know i want to user Panel Builder version 6 and still the PP835 they already have.
Version 6 can't connect to PP835, is it any way to do it?
The first sentance in the Manual for Panel Builder 6 is:
The Panel Builder software is used to configure operator panels PP871, PP874,PP877, PP882 and PP885 from ABB
So, it seems there is no possibility to use it for PP835
The "old" panel builder 5.1 supports both Process Panels (PP3xx) and Panels 800 (PP8xx).
So you have to use it for PP835. I think it is still possible to order PB 5.1 because some panels PP8xx (older models, that need PB 5.1) are in active sales. You should ask you local ABB office.
In the internet site of ABB there is a demo installationof PB 5.1 and PB5.0, it may be could help you for temporary needs.
My problem is that the customer have a PP836 and i will use it, so far so good.
When i use panel builder 5 and make a picture with variables from a controller (mms) and when i dont have the panel at the office i choose menu project/run but i dont see any values.
When i use panel builder 6 it works fine.
