Usually you don't have to modify any configs, if the point is visible with all its subpoints in lonmaker, there should be a + sign next to the unvt/scpt/snvt etc. if it is a structured datatype that...
since Plexus, (in my experience) is one of the most forgiving lon platforms, it seems strange that this trouble has come up.
Have you tried upgrading the lns driver in Plexus.
Most time when a...
Most older Dos based software use hardware interrupt calls direct to the ports.
There is a good chance that this will fail under virtual machine and possibly also under the bios of the newer...
UC's are all custom code. No canned program here.
You will need PTS software to upload and look at the code
in the UC's. If the programmer did not make the night setbacks

Siemens is a good corporation to work for, good benefits etc.
That being said, It isnt the corporation that usually makes or breaks your work experience.
I worked for Siemens for several years in...
Anyone know what type of ethernet card the trane BCU requires?
A part number would be helpful.
Yes, don't use frontpage.
Frontpage adds control extensions to its html code that is native only to frontpage.
When you create a website on a commercial server you have to request that frontpage...
A relay is a dry contact and a triac switches voltage via a "triac" (a type of semiconductor).
You cannot hook external voltages directly to a triac output usually, but you can with a relay.
I don't dismiss the positive attributes of good engineering etc. I just dismiss your assertion that it only comes with big companies.

Sorry, but I have worked for Honeywell, Siemens and Invensys.
They all have the same attitude...Sweet talk up front, thumb screws later.
Once their proprietary system is in place they will take you...
The best control system is the least proprietary you can find.
I don't care how well engineered, installed or maintained it is eventually JCI, Trane, Siemens, TAC etc. will bend you over the barrel...
I have heard this question many times, but, in my opinion the answer is YES!.
Hire some with mechanical, some with electrical and some with computer.
Cross train as necessary.
Nothing sucks more...
If you check out the devices at B&B electronics, stay away from the vlink product line. I have had problems with these devices going to sleep on me and dropping comm.
We replaced ours with the Moxa...
If you have Siemens TECs then you have a BLN device talking to them.
This could be an MBC, MEC, SCU or FLNC.
The Inisight provides automatic download of devices when they return from failure.
I also worked for Siemens for 5 years, I loved the first 3 years and then transferred to another branch. I only lasted 2 years at that branch because of the management and politics of the place....
My philosophy is this:
"If you can't buy the parts and software at Wal-mart, it's proprietary".
simple as that.
Controls companies like to see one of two experience paths (preferably both).
1.) Mechanical - like previously posted, preferably in the commercial field. The more equipment you have experience...
isolated incidents used as progress indicators of a large scale operation.
The press and the dems have been doing it since day one.
Nothing to see here, move along.
It could only work if a democrat was president.
Otherwise, no matter how horrible an attack that required retaliation, the dems would spin it into a blunder and illegal response by an unfit...
This one statement shows exactly how much koolaid Geer has been sucking from the DNC nipple.
Her husband was given the assignment, not her.
They are both political hacks.
She was not a field...

Geer and the rest of the lib koolaid drinkers keep echoing the talking points of the DNC and moveon.org as if they were historical facts.
Sorry boys, the dem opinion is twilight zone stuff at best....
This little tirade shows you to be a true DNC "knob knocker".
My wife worked at Walmart and we used their insurance policy provided by the store because it was better than the one offered at my...
