8.1 Overview
The data processing of XPanel is based on the TAG database. It should be registered with the tag shown to
the monitor.
There are three TAG types : analog, digital and string. And XPanel also provides the groupTAG.


Xpanel is repeatedly getting tags value used in the monitor from the machinery. User can save tag's value
provided to the information of tags in the database.
So if the data is changed, the value of each tag will also be changed. When users handle buttons and input
values, following the setting information, it demands to write values in the job machinery. Additionally, as the
process to write values completes, the tag s values are changed by reading the values from the machinery.
TAG

should be registered and the data of the real tag also should be changed.
All tags are divided into Digital tag, Analog tag and String TAG.
For the operation to handle its values and functions, tags should be registered and set the connection
between tags and values of the machinery.

Virtual vs. Real TAG

When the Virtual Tag radio buttonwas chosen as followingthe first dialog box, the TAG does not need
the I/ODevice and I/OAddress
configuration items anymore. That means, the actual value of a virtual TAG is not acquired by
communicationpolling but initialized and
manipulated by the internal functionsof XPanel such as script.
The initial value of a virtual TAG can be defined at the Advance configuration tab as shown in the
second dialog box of following picture.
When the XPanel is powered and starts its operation, the defined value is applied to the TAG s initial
value. Other configuration
items in Advance configurationtab have no meanings in case of virtual TAG.


CIMON-Xpanel 98

The initial value configurationis ignored in case of a real TAG. As describedin previous topic,
XPanel polls the data
of real TAG through communication.XPanel provides several functions for manipulating data
from device.As shown in the
above second dialog box, analog data scalingis one of those functions.The functions provided

8.4 Group TAG
When users input lots of tags at one screen, it is inefficient under its operation.
So, use a group tag to manage relative tags to make the tree structure similar with the directory in computer.
There is the purpose to make a group of various tags for better management of the project.

Scale / Range of Engineering Data (V
eng
) / Range of Raw Data (V
raw
)

XPanel provides two different methods to calculatea scaled engineering data. If this option is checked,
XPanel performs Scale/Offset method.
[ Scale / Offset Method ]
The Scale/Offset method uses following formula for calculatingthe engineeringvalue.
V
eng
= V
raw
x Scale + Offset
Vraw : Read data from device. Not processed, raw value from device.
Veng : Engineering data. (The data which will be displayed in XPanel s screen)
(Example 1)
If an analog TAG was configuredas following picture, and the Vraw from deviceis 32768,
then, V
eng
= (32768 x 0.1) 3276.8 = 3276.8 3276.8 = 0
As shown in above example, the engineeringdata configurations(Min Value and Max Value) do not
affect the raw value processing. But, in case of proportional method (if the Scale optionwas
not checked),The engineeringdata Min/Maxvalue configurationsare important factors.
[ Proportional Method ]
The ProportionalMethod processthe raw value twiceby using following formulas :
TAG Database 103
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
Scale = (V
eng_max
V
eng_min
) / (V
raw_max
V
raw_min
)
Offset = V
eng_min
V
raw_min
V
eng
= V
raw
x Scale + Offset
u V
raw
: Read data from device. Not processed,raw value from device.
u V
eng
: Engineering data. (The data which will be displayedin XPanel s screen)
u V
eng_max
, V
eng_min
: Engineering data range configurations
u V
raw_max
, V
raw_min
: Raw data range configurations
First, it calculatesthe scale and offset values from min/max configurations.
The calculated scale and offset values are applied to the same formula as Scale/Offset Method for
acquiring the final engineeringvalue.
(Example 2)
If an analog TAG was configuredas following picture, and the Vraw from deviceis 32768,
then,
Scale = (3276.7- (-3276.8))/ (65535 0) = 0.1
Offset = (-3276.8) 0 = -3276.8
V
eng
= (32768 x 0.1) 3276.8 = 3276.8 3276.8 = 0
Note that above two examples gave the same result.
8.7 String TAG
The string TAG hold a string data. The maximum string length the string TAG can hold is 80 characters. In
order to use as a real TAG,
please refer to the manual of device driver. Most device drivers do not support real stringTAG type.
CIMON-Xpanel 104

Length of String

Give the maximum possible length of string. It can be up to 80 characters.
This configurationhas meaning only on real TAG.
The device driver polls this size of continuousbuffer at every period for readinga string data.
Initial Value

Give the initial value of virtual TAG. The maximum length of initial string is restrictedto 22 characters.
When the XPanel is started up, the virtual TAG is initialized with designatedvalue.
Notice that this field has meaning only if TAG type is a virtual TAG. The real TAG ignores initial value
setting.

Description Fill in the description of current graphic page.
Popup Page
If this option was checked, the page will be opened in front of previous screen page at
runtime. Otherwise, without this option checking, the previous opened page will be
replaced with this page.
Fixed
Background
This option provides faster graphic processing speed by maintaining another copy of
background image in display memory. All the control-less objects are included in this
background image, and only the controlled objects will be redrawn at every data
updates in run time. If this option was not checked, all the objects would be redrawn at
every new data updates in runtime. This will give a big burden to Xpanel performance if
there are many graphic objects in page.
However, this option has a side-effect. All objects in Xpanel graphic page have their
depth level. Which object will be drawn first at runtime is decided by the depth level.
But, this option can change the depth levels between the objects with and without
control. This phenomenon can be easily shown at run time, especially for the
overlapped objects.
Using 256
Bitmap
Xpanel supports 64K colored bitmap objects. But, these objects consume so much
memory and disk space. This option converts the 64K colored bitmap to 256 colored
automatically. It is very useful when there is not enough disk space or memory. And
also it can be helpful to increase the graphic processing speed at run time.
Draw Changed
Object Only
This option can be used when there is need to get faster graphic processing speed at
run time. When this option was checked, only the object whose value or status was
changed will be redrawn.
However, this option has a side-effect too. When a controlled object was redrawn, the
Graphic Page Editor 133
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
depth level of the object will be ignored. The controlled object whose status was
changed will be the top most depth and other overlapping objects will not be redrawn.
This phenomenon can be easily shown at run time, especially between the overlapped
controlled objects.
Display Touch
Area
This option can be used to show touch area. When this option was checked, draw
rectangle on toucharea at screen touch.
Enable
Multi Touch
Action
This option can be used when there is need to run many touch actionat one time.
When this option was checked, all touch actions that was wrapt over will be run at
screen touch.
Sec. Level
A graphic page can be assigned a security level between 0 and 10. Only the user who
has the same or higher security level can open and see the graphic page. (zero is the
lowest security level) Please refer to the section of Security for more information about
security system.
Background Designate a background color of this page.
NOTE
To avoid the side effects of Fixed Background and Draw Changed Object Only options, please
follow the recommendations listed below.
Do not overlap two or more animated objects.
Put the animated object to the up-most position in the list of objects, if possible.
When the Draw Changed Object Only option was checked, it is strongly recommended to check the
Fixed Background option together.

task will be stopped and closed automatically.
The name of a block file is automatically generated based on the started time.
CIMON-Xpanel 192
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
Periodic
A log task is started periodically. The period of task invoking is configured in the unit
of minute. During one day, log task is started on every multiple of designated
minute. For example, if the Base Time was configured as 1H 30M, the log task
will be invoked on 00:00, 01:30, 03:00, 04:30, ..., 22:30.
This example assumes that Time Offset is configured as 0 . The time offset is a
delay of start. If it is assigned as 10, the log task of previous example will be invoked
on 00:10, 01:40 and so on.
Called (by command)
This type of invoking is triggered by a command. A command can be issued by touch
operation or script program. The command has a following format :
DataLog("ModelName", 1)
Trigger TAG
The log task is triggered by the state change of a TAG. When the value of a TAG
changes from zero to non-zero, the log task will be invoked. The value change from
non-zero to zero does not affect to the log task. Designate the name of TAG in Tag
Name field.
Enable TAG
The log task is triggered by the state change of a TAG. When the value of a TAG
changes from zero to non-zero, the log task will be invoked. And when the value
changes from non-zero to zero, the log task will be terminated. That is, the log task
keeps logging only while the value of TAG is non-zero. Designate the name of TAG
in Tag Name field.
On Time
The log task is invoked only once in a day. Set the time of log in Base Time field.

16 Modbus Slave
1. Function
By the function, the communication can be composed between Master equipment and Xpanel using the Modbus
protocol(RTU, TCP).
Xpanel has memory for Modbus Slave action inside, and if Master asks via the designated communication
channel, it answers to put the content of the memory in the frame.
The Modbus memory is composed of Coil(Max Size: 5000) and the Holding Register(Max Size: 10000) area and
Digital tag can be registered in the Coil area and Analogue/String tag be registered in the Holding Register Area.
Ex. When Tag1 is registered in Holding Register 400001, If it keeps reading the value of 400001 in Master, the
value of Tag1 is understood and moreover if it keeps writing the value in 400001, the value of Tag1 can be
changed.

If the data form of the registered tag is bigger than Word (UINT 32, INT32, float..) or is the string tag, the
designated number will be used as the beginning number of data.
Ex 1. When the Form of Tag1 registered in Holding Register 400001 is UINT32, the data of Tag 1 is updated
to 400001 and 400002. When the value is written in 400002 with Master, the value of Tag 1 is also changed.
Ex 2. When Tag 3 registered in Holding Register 400001 is string tag(string size : 10), the data of Tag 3 is
updated to 400010 ~ 400014. When the value is written in 400014 with Master, the value of Tag 3 is also
changed.

17 Recipe
The recipe service of Xpanel supports the multiple models. This makes it possible to manipulate different recipe
for multiple devices with an Xpanel.
In an Xpanel, every recipe model has its own name, parameters and group data. Up to 1024 group data can be
registered in a recipe model.
But at any time, only one group data can be manipulated in Xpanel. The reason is that a group data must be
located in the memory of Xpanel for manipulation.
A group data can be transferred between four types of media.
And the Xpanel memory is located at the center of these transfers. Following picture shows paths of group data
movement.


Each of group data movement is issued by the internal functions for recipe operation. More precise explanations
can be found on the script section of this manual.
RcpCsvRd(S1, S2,
R3)
A group data can be imported from external memory through CSV formatted file.
CSV formatted file can be created or read by the spreadsheet utilities such as
MS-Excel on PC
RcpMemUp(S1), A group data can be uploaded from the device through communication. For normal

2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
RcpMemDown(S1) recipe operation,
the communication driver must support the recipe functions.
This can be known from the manual of the communication driver. Refer to the
driver s manual.
RcpFileStore(S1, R2),
RcpFileRead(S1, R2)
The group data in memory can be stored to the recipe configuration file.
The stored group data will be maintained while power off.
And the function for reading a group data from configuration file is provided also.
RcpUpload(S1, R2) Compounded functions are provided for convenience.
RcpUpload() function is a compounded form of RcpMemUp() and RcpFileStore()
RcpDownload(S1,

One of analog TAG in database can be assigned to this field. The device address of the TAG must be designated
with the first address of the recipe data memory area of a device. This memory area must be continuous. The
analog TAG of this field specifies not only the first address but also specifies the type of data. Xpanel supports
WORD (16 bits) and DWORD (32 bits) type of data for recipe. Therefore, the data type of an analog TAG for this
field should be one of INT16, UINT16, INT32 or UINT32. Following picture shows the property page of analog

Handshake with the Device

Xpanel does handshake with a device while up/download a recipe data via communication.
The handshake is progressed on the basis of device memories. These handshake memories must be
declared as TAGs in the database of Xpanel.

Word handshake is a group of up/download request flags. It must be declared as an analog TAG with 16 bits
property. This word is divided into two different areas. High nibble of the word is the flags for request from
device (for example a PLC), and low nibble of word is the flags for request from Xpanel.

BIT

The bit handshake must be declared as a digital TAG in database. It is set or reset by Xpanel.
This flag indicates that the recipe data transfer is under the progressing.
Therefore, by this flag, the device can recognize the fact that its recipe data are ready for use or not.

This field retains the group number for upload or download. And it is effective only when the recipe data
transfer is issued by device (PLC) side. The device can choose a group in Xpanel configuration file which is
wanted to be up/downloaded. The group number can be a number between 0 to 1023.
Following time chart shows the status of handshake signals during recipe data transfer. It is an example of
up/download issued by PLC side. For transfer a new recipe data from Xpanel to device (PLC), the group
number should be decided foremost and written to the memory of group number. And next, the device
signals the bit08 (or bit09) flag of word handshake. Immediately after detection of that signal, Xpanel sets the
bit handshake and starts to transfer the recipe group data which is designated by the group number field.
After the successful transfer, Xpanel resets the bit handshake signal and clears the word handshake also. The
device can recognize the completion of transfer through those handshake signals.

Following time chart shows an example of recipe data transfer issued by Xpanel side. All the handshake
signals are controlled by Xpanel. The group number field has no meaning at Xpanel issued transfer. Since the
group number was designated in the parameter of functions already (RcpUpload(), RcpDownload()) or does
not need the group number because data are not for file access (RcpMemUp(), RcpMemDown()). The device
can recognize the progress of recipe data transfer with word and bit handshake signals.

Post Process for Uploaded Data

Automatically
File Store On PLC
Managed Upload
This option is effective only for the uploaded data by device side. As explained in
previous section, the device (PLC) can control the uploading process by using
handshake signal (bit9 of word handshake) and a group number.
If this option is checked, Xpanel will store the received recipe group data to the
configuration file automatically at the end of upload process. At that moment, the
group number from device will be used to determine which group in a file should be
replaced with the newly received data. Stored group data will be retained permanently
in flash memory even while Xpanel is powered off. If this option is not checked, the
uploaded data will be stored only in RAM.
17.2 Recipe Operator Interface

YT Trend / Scope Trend / SPC Trend / ST Trend / LOG Trend /
XY Trend
19.1 YT Trend

The YT Trend is periodical time based generic trend. The data for trending are collected by Xpanel. Y axis
represents the value of trending data and X axis represents the time. Maximum 8 different data (pens) can be
shown in a trend window at the same time. Each pen has its own data buffer (RAM) with capacity of 5000 data.
The datum of each pen is sampled and stored periodically to this buffer by Xpanel. This buffer makes it possible
to support the historical trend of sampled data.

20 String Editor
String editor constructs a number of string groups. These string groups are managed like string tables at
runtime.
Each group can be distinguished by group number. And all the strings defined in each group can be referenced by
index number.
Constructed string groups are useful when there is a need to make (or display) different string according to the
status code.
It can be accomplished by two different ways as shown in the following picture.
One method is done by the String Value graphic object and the other is done by the StringTable() script
function.
These two different applications will be described in next sections of this manual.

22 Network Data Server
Xpanel provides TAG values to CIMON SCADA system through Ethernet. For this purpose, there are two memory
areas in Xpanel as shown in the
following picture. Each memory area has 1,000 buffers. The SCADA system can read and write those memory
areas through Ethernet.
Following sections describe how to define the memories in Xpanel and configure the network and SCADA.

See :
Data Definition in Xpanel
The Configuration of CIMON SCADA
22.1 Data Definition in Xpanel
To enable the network data server service, the service memory areas need to be configured. Use the
Tools - Data Server menu or the icon.
CIMON-Xpanel 296
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
Following picture shows the memory definition window of Xpanel.
The memory is composed with two areas. One area is data memory (D) and the other is string memory (S).
Each area can be filled with up to 1,000 TAGs.
And these TAGs are designated the address ranged from 0 to 999.
Analog and digital TAG can be assigned in D area. The D memory area has the value of floating point type.
On the other side, only the string TAG can be assigned in S memory.
Point
The data server function needs a fixed IP address in network. For configuring the IP address of Xpanel,
please refer to the section of Configuration of this manual.
22.2 The Configuration of CIMON SCADA
Device Driver Configuration

CIMON SCADA deals the Xpanel just like a general device such as PLC.
That is, the same concept of configuration as PLC is applied to Xpanel in SCADA.
1. Create a Device First of all, the Xpanel must be registered in SCADA system though the I/O device
configuration window as shown in the following picture.
Network Data Server 297
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
Choose the I/O Device Type as KDT SYSTEMS CIMON-XPANEL Ethernet
in the above windows. The following picture shows the dialog boxes for
configuration of Xpanel.
2. Create a Station

Every Xpanel registered as a station has to be identified by its IP address. Specify
CIMON-Xpanel 298
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
the IP address of Xpanel at #1-1 IP Address field of above window.
3. Create the
Comm.Block


If the station is created successfully, then define the communication blocks which
include the data to be used. The Xpanel provides two different memory areas, D
and S . These two memory areas are described in the previous section of this
chapter.
Point
Ensure that all data to be monitored are included in the COM Block . Otherwise,
it will not be monitored normally during online.
4. Identify the
SCADA
IP Address

Network Data Server 299
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.

The IP address of SCADA itself must be identified. Move to the COM Port tab of
the main dialog box.
And give the IP address of SCADA to the #1 IP Address field as shown in the
above picture.
TAG Configuration

1. Analog / Digital
Tag

The D memory area can be used as an analog or digital TAG in SCADA.

Script 309
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
24 Script
The script of Xpanel is very similar with the C programming language. Variables can be used in script.
And script provides function call mechanism and supports almost keywords defined in standard C language
such as switch-case, for, while, if-else, goto.
All user programmed scripts are executed in multi-thread environment.
Each script is assigned a priority among total 10 levels, such that the execution speed of a script is dependent
on this level. (most high priority = 10, most low priority = 1)

Uses the C language style statement
All TAGs defined in Xpanel database can be used as variables in script. It does not need additional
definition, symbol or configuration.
That means, values of all TAGs can be referenced or changed in every script program freely.
Two kinds of variable types are supported, real and string type. Actual type of a variable is decided
automatically during program execution.
But, only one type of value can be used in a script scope. All real type data are processed in 64 bits.
Does not distinguish capital letters. That is, VAR and var are the same keyword.

Operators for calculation

The result row of following table assumes that the value of variable A is 3 and B is 4.
Operator Description Example Result
+ Addition A + B 7
- Subtraction A B -1
* Multiplication A * B 12
/ Division A / B 0.75
% Remainder of division

A & B 0
^ Bitwise XOR
(1)
A ^ B 7
~ Bitwise Invert
(1)
~A 0xFFFFFFFC
<< Bitwise Shift Left A << B 48
>> Bitwise Shift Right A >> B 0
(1)
Remainder of division (%) and all bitwise operators are performed with 32 bits integer data.

Logical/Comparative Operators

The result row of following table assumes that the value of variable A is 2 (true) and B is 0 (false).
Xpanel treats all values except zero as logical TRUE. Only zero is treated as logical FALSE.
When the result of logical operation is TRUE, the value 1 will be returned and stored.
Operator Description Example Result
&& Logical AND A && B 0 (false)
|| Logical OR A || B 1 (true)
! Logical NOT !A 0 (false)
== EQUAL A == B 0 (false)
!= NOT EQUAL A != B 1 (true)
CIMON-Xpanel 314
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
> Big A > B 1 (true)
>= or => Big or Equal A >= B 1 (true)
< Small A < B 0 (false)
<= or =< Small or Equal A <= B 0 (false)


Other Operators

Operator Description Example Result Value
= Store A = B Store the value of B to A, and uses it as a result value.
Store (=) operator can be used in a series. For example :
A = B = C;
In this case, The value of C will be stored to A and B . The value of right side of the operator is store in
left side and this value is treated as a return value of the operator. The internal processing order of above
example is :
B <- C
A <- B
Warming
This feature of = operator places a bug in program sometimes. That is the confusion with a
comparative operator (==). Following example is illustrating this kind of bug. In this example, a
programmer confused comparative operator(==) with store operator (=). But, XpanelDesigner
cannot detect such error. The reason is, the store operator has a return value and this value can
be used as a logical value in if statement. This bug makes unexpected flow of program, and
furthermore, unwanted value will be stored in A .

24.3 Scripts for command and condition
In some application, there is a need to use a simple script on graphic object configuration.
For example, to assign a touch operation on an object, one or several command lines must be written in case of
Command Expression action type
(see an example configuration dialog box below). And further more, for making it conditional touch operation, a
conditional expression must be described.
All these conditional expression and command script have the same rules with script programming.

Conditional Expression

The conditional expression always returns only a logical value. A logical value can be one of two values,
TRUE or FALSE.
Xpanel uses the number 0 as the value of logical FALSE, and 1 as the value of logical TRUE.
A logical expression needs some special operators. The logical operators in Xpanel are shown in as following
table.
For more precise information, refer to the section 3.2.

Logical Operator Description Example
&& Logical AND A && B
CIMON-Xpanel 316
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
|| Logical OR A || B
! Logical NOT !A
Comparative Operator Description Example
== EQUAL A == B
!= NOT EQUAL A != B
> Big A > B
>= or => Big or Equal A >= B
< Small A < B
<= or =< Small or Equal A <= B
All logical operators get one or two values for input (operands) and return a logical output value. According
to the above examples, A and B are those inputs.
The value for logical arithmetic operand is not restricted to only two logical values (TRUE or FALSE). The
input value can be any number.
But, only zero is treated as logical FALSE. All the other values are treated as TRUE.
Comparative operators get two real values for operands and return a logical output value. Those logical
output values can be used in other logical expression.
Here is some examples of conditional expression that can be used in object configuration dialog box.
Conditional Expression Example Remark
(Tag_a != 1) && (Tag_b == 10) If the value of Tag_a is not equal to 1 and the value of Tag_b is
equal to 10, then the expression returns TRUE. Otherwise FALSE.
Sin(Tag_a) == 1 If the sine of Tag_a is 1, then the expression will return TRUE,
otherwise FALSE.
Tag_a < 100 If the value of Tag_a is smaller than 100, then the expression will
return TRUE, otherwise FALSE.
(Tag_a + Tag_b) < (Tag_a + Tag_c) If the sum of Tag_a and Tag_b is smaller than the sum of Tag_a
and Tag_c, then the expression will return TRUE, otherwise
FALSE.
Command Script

The command in Xpanel is not restricted to use only one instruction. A long list of instructions can construct
a command.
That is, the command is a special kind of script program. Within a command script, all kinds of keywords
and functions can be used.
But only one thing, the priority of command script is different with the normal script. When a command
Script 317
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
script is issued by touch operation or any other method,
it will be executed with top-most priority. For that reason, if a command script has a time consuming loop
inside, all the other process will be halted until the end
of command script. So, especially for calling other function within a command script, the programmer has to
keep in mind that the priority.
If the function has a loop, RunScript keyword must be used. This keyword is used for parallel execution.
The calling command script does not wait the termination of called function.
Assume that a programmer wants to call a function named as MyLoop , and this function has a time
consuming loop.
Then, following instruction must be used, instead of calling directly.
RunScript MyLoop();

Following table shows some typical command script examples.

Command Script
Example
Remark
Tag_a = 100;
PageOpen( NewPage ) ;
After changing the value of Tag_a to 100, open a page named as "NewPage "
Tag_b = Tag_b + 1 Increase the value of Tag_b by 1.
Tag_a = 100;
Tag_b = 1;
RunScript MyLoop();
MakCsv( LogModel , 1);
After changing the values of Tag_a and Tag_b, invoke MyLoop() script
function.
After that, do not wait the termination of MyLoop(), and create a CSV formatted
file of the LogModel on SD memory card.

24.4.1 IF-ELSE Statement
IF ELSE statement is one of the most frequently using logical decision making statement.
It supports nested IF statement like IF - ELSE IF - ELSE IF... There is no limit on level of nested IF. Else
statement can be omitted.
If (A == 1)
{
// performed when the value of A is 1
}
Else
{
// performed when the value of A is not 1
}
24.4.2 WHILE/DO-WHILE Statement
These statements are loop statements.
WHILE keyword is followed by a logical expression. During the value of this expression is TRUE, all statements in
WHILE statement are performed repeatedly.
A = 0;
While (A < 10)
{
// Describe the job should be performed repeatedly
// during the value of logical expression is TRUE
// (This example performs following statement 10 times)
A = A + 1;
}
WHILE statement makes decision before performing the loop. Such that, statements in loop can never be
performed.
But, DO-WHILE statement performs the loop at least one time. And then makes decision by evaluating logical
expression.
This is a difference between WHILE and DO-WHILE statement.
Do {
// Describe the job should be performed repeatedly
Script 319
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
// during the value of logical expression is TRUE
// (This loop is performed at least 1 time)
} While (A < 10); // Semi-colon (;) must be used for marking end of statement.
24.4.3 FOR Statement
It is a little bit complex statement. But, after familiar with this statement, it will be very useful loop statement.
The specialty of this statement is that all expressions for initializing, decision making and post loop processing are
described in one statement line.
Following example shows the same job with the example of WHILE statement presented in former section.
Compare it with WHILE statement.
For (A=0; A<10; A=A+1)
{
// describe the job to repeat here
}
FOR keyword is followed by a pair of parenthesis. Expression for initializing, decision making and post loop
processing are described in this parenthesis.
Each expression must be separated by semicolons ( ; ).
FOR ( initializing exp. ; decision making exp. ; post processing exp. )

24.4.4 SWITCH-CASE Statement
This statement is very useful when there are many different processing way depend on a variable or expression.
Each different processing way is described by CASE keyword followed by a constant value. There is no limit on
the number of CASE.
switch (A)
{
Case 1:
// describe the job to perform when the value of A is 1
Break;
Case 5:
Case 7:
// describe the job to perform when the value of A is 5 or 7
Break;
Default:
// describe the job to perform when A is any other value
CIMON-Xpanel 320
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
// DEFAULT statements can be omitted
Break;
}
CASE keyword must be followed by a constant value and terminated by a colon (:). A TAG, variable or expression
cannot be used in CASE statement.
DEFAULT statement can be used only once in a SWITCH statement.
It does not need a following constant, and this statement will be performed when there is no matching case.
DEFAULT statement can be omitted if needless.
BREAK keyword in CASE/DEFAULT statement plays role of terminating SWITCH statement.
If there is no BREAK keyword in the progress of program execution until reaches the other CASE/DEFAULT
keyword, the program will continue to execute the
statements in the other CASE/DEFAULT scope. This feature of SWITCH statement is helpful for short and simple
programming, only if it is used intentionally.
24.4.5 GOTO Statement
This statement controls the flow of program execution directly. This statement needs a matching index in a
program scope.
Index is a unique name of a jump destination in a program scope, and it is started with @ character.
VAR A;

A = 0;
@ComeHere // destination of jump
If (A < 10)
{
A = A + 1;
Goto ComeHere; // change the flow of program
}
This example program processes the same job with the previous examples of FOR and WHILE statement section.
The name of index ( J umpHere in the above example) can not be duplicated with variables, tags and program
names.
24.4.6 CONTINUE Keyword
Continue keyword is very useful in loop. When a CONTINUE keyword is met in the progress of a program,
the flow of the program will be moved to the first statement in the loop. This keyword is effective in the loop of
WHILE, DO-WHILE and FOR statement.
Script 321
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
It is especially useful when there are many decision making in the loop such as IF-ELSE.
Following two program examples process the same job.
While (A<10)
{
A = A + 1;
If (A < 5)
{
// J ob to do when A is smaller than 5
}
Else
{
// J ob to do when A is larger than or equal to 5
}
}
While (A<10)
{
A = A + 1;
If (A < 5)
{
/ / J ob to do when A is smaller than 5
Continue;
}
/ / J ob to do when A is larger than or equal to 5
}
24.4.7 RETURN Keyword
Every program returns a result value to caller. RETURN keyword is used for designating a value to return and
terminating the program.
Following example program processes three input parameters and returns the sum of them to caller.
PARAM p1, p2, p3;

Return p1 + p2 + p3;
Assuming that the name of above program is MyPgm , it can be called from another program as following
program line.
RtnValue = MyPgm(1, 2, 3);
CIMON-Xpanel 322
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
After MyPgm call, a value of 6 will be stored in RtnValue .

24.4.8 RUNSCRIPT Keyword
When a program calls another program, the caller program will be stalled until when the called program
terminates.
RUNSCRIPT keyword provides another way of invoking other program. It does not make stall the caller program.
After invoke another program, the caller program continues it s own job. As a result, both programs will run in
parallel and this is the feature of multi-threading.
Following example shows the multi-threading feature by using RUNSCRIPT keyword. It is assuming that the name
of another program is NewThread .
If(A == 0)
RunScript NewThread(); // Invoke another program (NewThread)
A = A + 1; // Continues next job without stalling.

The sign is either plus (+) or minus (-), and digits are one or more decimal digits. If no
digits appear before the radix character, at least one must appear after the radix
character. The decimal digits can be followed by an exponent, which consists of an
introductory letter (d, D, e, or E) and an optionally signed integer. If neither and
exponent part nor a radix character appears, a radix character is assumed to follow the
last digit in the string.
This function returns 0, if no conversion can be performed or an error occurs.

Base number (0 or 2..36).

I f base is 0 the following rules are applied :
CIMON-Xpanel 346
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
1) The initial characters of the string are used to determine the base. If the first
character is 0 and the second character is not x or X , the string is interpreted
as an octal integer. (ex : 01237)
2) If the first character is 0 and the second character is x or X , the string is
interpreted as a hexadecimal integer. (ex : 0xF5EA)
3) Otherwise, it is interpreted as a decimal number.
When the base in bigger than 10, the letters a through z (or A through Z ) are
assigned the values 10 through 35. Only letters whose assigned values are less than
base are permitted.

than the specified width, blanks are added to the values until the minimum
width is reached. If width is prefixed with 0, zeros are added until the
minimum width is reached (not useful for left-aligned numbers).
The width specification never causes a value to be truncated. If the
number of characters in the output value is greater than the specified
width, or if width is not given, all characters of the value are printed.

26 Indirect Address
Indirect Tag
The indirect tag is to describe one tag by two tags that are divided into Target tag and Offset tag.
As described by the indirect tag, the address of Target tag is handled to change, referring to the tag s value
designated as Offset tag.
For example, if the tag s value designated as Offset tag is 0, it will be same value with the designated
address of tag designated as Target tag
Also, if the value of Target tag is 2, it will express the value that is 2 plus the address designated to Target
tag.
Notation Method
Write - # between Target Tag and Offset Tag
Ex) Target_Tag#Offset_Tag
Attention
Offset tag is that all analogue tag and digital tag with sate value(in case of I/O device, there are some tags
without sate value) are registered,
but Target tag is specified only real tag with the I/O device below.
In case of using the tag with I/O device that is not described on the bottom is managed as normal tag.

[Table] T[ Table No ].[ Offset ](:Bit No)
Obj No / Table No
Designate the object (table) number of data location.
Please refer to the object definition of connected DDC, for more information about
object.
Size Designate the data type. It can be 1 (BYTE) or 2 (WORD).
Offset Designate the byte offset within the table.
Index Designate the assigned index number within the given object.
Attribute Designate the attribute number of data.
:Bit No Designate the bit number. This bit address notation is used in digital TAG. Notice
CIMON-Xpanel 384
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
that the TAG with this bit number only can be read.
That is, the digital TAG writing is not supported with ASIC protocol driver.
Bit number has to be within the range of data size. In case of a table (T) or object
(O) with size 1 (BYTE), bit number can be between 0 and 7. Elsewhere, object with
size 2 (WORD), bit number can be between 0 and 15.

Parameter Area
The address of each TAG can be induced from the parameter number of
FC 300 or VLT 2800. For example, to monitor the 16-17 Speed [RPM]
of FC 300, the address should be designated with P1617 . For more
parameters, please refer to the How to Program section of FC 300
Design Guide .
The value written to this address will be transferred to the FC 300 or VLT
2800 directly. That means, parameters of the inverter can be modified by
writing a desired value to this address. The new value can be stored in not
only RAM also EEPROM of FC 300. For storing set value to the EEPROM,
C002 point must have a non-zero value.
R/W
C 000 Control Code
1 word sized control data. Each bit has its own control meaning which is
shown in following [control code] table. To control FC 300 or VLT 2800,
write a value of combination of the table.
Ensure that the reference (C001) must be set as desired value before
issuing of this control code.
W
001 Reference
This point is a signed word data (-32767 - +32767), and the range of data
corresponds to -200% to +200% of reference. For example, the value of
CIMON-Xpanel 396
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
16384 represents 100% of reference.
This reference value must be set before the actual control by control code
(C000).
002 EEPROM Writing
If this is non-zero, the value written to the parameter area (Pnnnn) will
be saved to the EEPROM as well as RAM of FC 300 or VLT 2800.
Otherwise, the set value will be stored only in RAM. Ensure that the value
of this point is what you wanted before parameter writing.
Above addresses can be used in both of analog and digital TAG.

[Example : Monitors the frequency data]
1. Make an analog TAG for frequency data. The address can be induced from parameter number 16-13.
Designate P1613 as the address of new analog TAG.
2. Setup the scale factor of the analog TAG if needed. Conversion index of parameter 16-13 is -1.
Configure the scaling factor of the TAG in database as 0.1. (The Conversion index and other useful
information of each parameter
can be found on the Parameter Lists section of the FC 300 Design Guide .)
CIMON-Xpanel 398
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.

[Example : Changes the 'speed PID lowpass filter time']
1. Make two analog TAGs. One TAG is for EEPROM storage control and the other TAG is for the parameter.
The address of parameter TAG can be induced from parameter number 7-06. Designate P0706 as the
address of the new analog TAG.

Communication Driver 399
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
2. Setup the scale factor of the analog TAG. In this example, the value of 0.1 was designated as the scale
factor.
This value came from the Conversion index of the parameter 7-06. But the conversion index of par.
7-06 is -4.
This index is based on the unit of second. For convenience, we can use the unit of milli-second, such
that the index can be thought as the value of -1.

3. The parameter of FC 300 can be modified by changing the TAG.
If needed but not necessarily, before the writing a new parameter value, the EEPROM storing option can
be arranged.

[Example : Start Controls ]
1. Make two analog TAGs for control. One TAG is for reference value (C001, INT16) and the other TAG is
for control word (C000, UINT16).
2. To control the FC 300, write a desired reference value to the Reference point (C001) first. And then,
write a control value to Control point.
For example, write the value of 0x047F for issuing a start command.
Following picture shows an example of a command expression for control. (Start with 100%)

The inverter keeps total 6 trip history data on its memory. And the Xpanel driver provides a method to choose
on of those 6 trip history data for monitoring.
To monitor a trip history in Xpanel, first of all, Y009 has to be set a value between 1 and 6. This value denotes
the history data ID to be stored in X018 - X027. And then, when the Y008 point was written as zero or one,
one of history data block would be copied to the monitoring points (X018 - X027) as explained in the following
picture. When the Y008 point was written as zero (0), one of buffered trip history would be copied to the
monitoring points(X018 - X027). Otherwise (written as 1), the internal trip history data buffer would be updated
by the data from inverter.
Thus, following sequential commands or script program updates the trip history data which are stored in
X018 - X027 and monitored.

This option is provided for Xpanel to deal with various TCP port management
ways of PLC. Some PLC has a limit on the number of TCP services. In that
case, this option can be a help.
The actual effect of this option on PLC cannot be described here. Because,
there are too many kinds of PLC and the response in PLC is entirely

To quickly update a page (Fixed Background)

If it arranges a lot of objects on the page in the work, update would be slower.
Considering the specificity, "Fixed Background" function makes the speed of update higher.
The "Fixed Background" function is registered to each page, and the page setting up the function of the
"Fixed Background" is handled as
the 'Object appointed with change and the 'Object not appointed with change are divided.
Object appointed with change is as follows.
Object for which Visible, Blink, V-Size, H-Size, V-Move, H-Move, Color and Rotate are specified.
When the change is specified for Group Object, All Object are handled as Group object appointed
with change
Touch and Entry Data are not handled by the change.
Tag Value, Date Time, String Value, Multi String, Trend Graph, Data Log and Alarm Summary are
handled as Object appointed with change .

The upper page arranges the 'Tag Value Object' on Group object with the shape of a toothed wheel.
In case of the object not to set the "Fixed Background" , it has picture renewal cycle for about 0.5sec
because all objects are drawn again when data updates. However, in case to set the "Fixed Background" ,
the picture renewal cycle is shorten because only the 'Tag Value Object' is drawn without drawing all
Objects with the shape of a toothed wheel.
To quickly update a page (Draw Changed Object Only)
Reduce the number of Objects toQuickly update a Page.Generally, if Object appointed with change are
piled up by using Draw Changed Object Only ,
the last changed Object is displayed normally.

For example, if three objects designated with change like upper page are changed at the same time, all
objects inside the yellow circle are drawn again.
In this case, 12 Object will be drawn. However, if Draw Changed Object Only is used, three objects will be
drawn again and the drawn time will be shorten to 1/4 time.

For instance, there are three quadrilaterals designated with color change.
In case not to use Draw Changed Object Only , the color of three quadrilaterals
are changed each other.
However, in case to use Draw Changed Object Only , the lastly changed object
is on the top of them.
'Draw

Setup
Select - Page for setting "Draw Changed Object Only" function in XpanelDesigner
Click - [Tools] -> [Page Setup]

Select - "Draw Changed Object Only" of Page Properties and click - [Ok] button
When using Draw Changed Object Only , Caution is as follows.
When there are Objects designated with V-Move, H-Move and Rotate, "Draw
Changed Object Only" function doesn't operate.
If objects that its Visible is decided by same tag are overlap, the under object is
always removed or covered due to the upper object.
In case to use 'Fixed Background' , it is filled with the background picture of the
area first value. If not, page background color would be filled.
Reduce Page Size (Using 256 Bitmap)

If the size of page file is big, there will be lots of errors at download and it will take much time to read the
page file.
Generally the page composed with basic objects doesn t take big size. However, if the page is using many
CIMON-Xpanel 670

images, the size of the page file will be bigger.
In the case of it, if you check the "Using 256 bitmap" in the Page Properties, it would change 24 bit image
of page to the 8 bit image at download and also
it would contract the size about 1/2~1/3.
Instead of it, pixel data is changed, so the shapes of editing and Xpanel could be different slightly.

28.5 How can I display the engineering value from the raw value in my
device?
Xpanel provides two different method to calculate a scaled engineering data.
System designer can choose one of there two methods with the "Scale" option in TAG database.
If this option is checked, Xpanel performs 'Scale/Offset' method.
IN THIS TOPIC :
Scale / Offset Method Proportional Method
Scale / Offset Method

The 'Scale/Offset' method uses following formula for calculating the engineering value.
Veng = Vraw X Scale + Offset
Vraw Read data from device. Not processed, raw value from device.
Veng Engineering data. (The data which will be displayed in Xpanel's screen)
( Example 1) If an analog TAG was configured as following picture, and the V
raw
from device is
32768,

CIMON-Xpanel 682
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
V
eng
= (32768 X 0.1) - 3276.8 = 3276.8 -3276.8 = 0
As shown in above example, the engineering data configurations (Min Value and Max Value) do not
affect the raw value processing.
But, in case of proportional method (if the 'Scale' option was not checked), the engineering data Min/
Max value configurations are important factors.
See the next following page.
Proportional Method

The 'Proportional Method' process the law value twice by using following formulas.
Scale = (V
eng_max
- V
eng_min
) / (V
raw_max
- V
raw_min
)
Offset = V
raw_min
- V
raw_min
V
eng
= V
raw
X Scale + Offset
Vraw Read data from device. Not processed, raw value from device.
Veng Engineering data. (The data which will be displayed in Xpanel's screen)
Vraw_max , Vraw_min Raw data rage configurations
Veng_max , Veng_min Engineering data range configurations
First, it calculates the scale and offset values from min/max configurations.
The calculated scale and offset values are applied to the same formula as 'Scale/Offset Method' for
acquiring the final engineering value.
( Example 2) If an analog TAG was configured as following picture, and the V
raw
from device is
32768,

FAQ 683
2006 KDT SYSTEMS Co.Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
Scale = (3276.7 - (-3276.8))/ (65535 -0) = 0.1
Offset = (-3276.8)-0 = -3276.8
V eng = (32768 X 0.1) - 3276.8 = 3276.8 -3276.8 = 0
Note that above two examples gave the same result.
28.6 How can I export/import the Xpanel's TAG DB to/from Microsoft
Excel or other 3rd vender program?
The XpanelDesigner does not have a special menu for TAG DB exporting and importing.
However, the clipboard function of Windows can be used for the same purpose.
Use the "Copy" function of "Edit" menu while the TAG DB window is opened and some of TAGs in
DB are under selected state.
And next, activate the Microsoft Excel, and use "Paste" function of "Edit" menu. Following table can
be helpful to edit each TAG data in Excel worksheed.
