Why am I experiencing a compile error in Window 8: “Unsupported system tag LB-9036: SD card free space insufficiency alarm (when ON)”?

When compiling a project that was originally created in an older version of EBPro, this error will occur if the model that was selected when the project was originally created does not support SD cards. This is due to a change that was implemented in EBPro: Version 6.05.01. With this change, if the originally selected…

Are EBPro projects backwards compatible with older versions of EBPro and EZwarePlus?

EBPro projects are not backwards compatible with EZwarePlus or older versions of EBPro. Newer versions of EBPro will save a copy of the project created in an older version when it is modified. This older copy will have the version number of the older software appended to it and will be saved to the same…

How do I calibrate an HMI touchscreen?

To calibrate Maple Systems HMIs with four DIP switches on the back: Turn DIP switch 1 to the ON position and cycle power on the HMI. This will cause it to boot into calibration mode. Don’t forget to turn the DIP switch back OFF when completed. To calibrate the HMI5070TH/HMI5070NH/HMI5100N: Locate the DIP switches behind…

I converted my project from a legacy product and the fonts in my project look funny now?

Anytime you convert a project from a legacy software to a newer version there is a risk that your fonts may no longer be supported in the new software. When an EasyBuilder-500 project is converted to EasyBuilder-5000 using the Translate tool, the HMI500 fonts can be used to maintain the look of the original project.…

How do I upgrade from EZware-500 to EBPro?

Maple Systems offers several innovative HMIs that provide an upgrade path for existing applications. For simple applications, the transition process is fairly smooth. For more complicated applications, the process may require additional efforts and considerations. For optimum success, use the most current version of programming software. Follow Tech Note 5102, “Converting from EZware-500 to EBPro”…

Can I replace an HMI500 Series with a newer model?

Yes, an HMI500 Series can be replaced with a newer model. If you have the HMI500 Series project file, it can be converted into an EBPro project. See Tech Note 5102, “Converting from EZware-500 to EBPro.”

I replaced an HMI500 Series with a newer model and now it won’t communicate with the PLC.

The serial ports are configured differently on the current models than they were on the HMI500 Series. In order to use the same communication cable as the HMI500 Series, insert a null-modem gender-changer (Part Number 2117-0910) on the HMI end of the cable for RS232. For RS485, insert a gender-changer only (Part Number 2117-0903). You…
