Summary

Using Reserved Register Memory of the Silver-Series HMI Touch Screens

The Silver Series HMI contains reserved internal data memory, which can be used for reading and/or writing special parameters and functions. These registers are reserved and are to be used only for their intended purpose.

This is a list of the various internal memory register types available in all HMIs. Selecting various PLC Types in the System Parameters of the software will often make available other register type for your specific PLC. Please refer to the individual Controller Information Sheet for the details on specific PLC register types.

NameRangeDescription
LW (Local Word)0-8999 9000-9999These are internal data registers, which can be used to store 16-bit, 32-bit, or 64-bit values.  Local words LW:0 to LW:8999 are for general purpose use;   LW:9000 to LW:9999 are reserved.
LB (Local Bit)0-8999 9000-9999These are internal coil registers which can be used to store two-state values.  Local bits LB:0 to LB:8999 are for general purpose use;   LB:9000 to LB:9999 are reserved. LBs are separate from LW.
Ms_LW (Master-Slave Local Word)0-9999This register type is used for a slave HMI to obtain local words (LWs) from a Master HMI (This can be used only in a Master-Slave configuration ‘multiple HMIs’).
Ms_LB (Master-Slave Local Bit)0-9999This register type is used for a slave HMI to obtain local bits (LBs) from a Master HMI (This can be used only in a Master-Slave configuration ‘multiple HMIs’)..
RWI (Recipe Word Index)0-32767Reserved for indirectly addressing recipes.  The address referred to by an RWI device is actually the specified RWI address plus the offset value stored in address LW:9000.  
RW (Recipe Word)0-59999 60000-65535This is battery backed –up (retentive) internal memory used for storing ‘recipe’ configuration data.  This memory is separate from the local word/bit memory.  The recipe memory can be up/down-loaded. RW:60000-65535 are reserved.
Ms_RW (Master-Slave Recipe Word)0-65535This register type is used for a slave HMI to obtain recipe words from a Master HMI (This can be used only in a Master-Slave configuration ‘multiple HMIs’).
RBI (Recipe Bit Index)00-2047FReserved for recipes.  The address referred to by an RBI device is actually the specified address plus an indexed offset.  The offset is the value in address LW9000.  The bit is addressed as a hex digit placed at the end of the word address.
RB (Recipe Bit)00-2047FReserved for recipes bits.  The RB device allows Bit-level access to recipe data.  RB devices use same memory area as the RW devices.  They reference the first 10 bits of each RW.  For example, Bit RB0 is Bit 0 in RW0; Bit RB10 is Bit 0 in RW1, RB50 is Bit 0 in RW5.  The bit is addressed as a hex digit placed at the end of the word address.
Ms_RB (Master-Slave Recipe Bit)00-2047FReserved for recipe bits when using multiple HMIs.   The bit is addressed as a hex digit placed at the end of the word address.

A note about RTC:  The user can use “Objects”, such as numeric inputs, but the user must take care to enter only valid values.  For example:  Seconds cannot be changed to 78(BCD), if 78(BCD) is entered, the RTC will continue counting up… 78, 79, 80…etc.  This will cause unpredictable conditions to happen.


Non-Volatile Storage of System Parameters

System Parameters can be stored in the Non-Volatile Memory held in Recipe Memory and then will allow a change of these parameters from within the project during RUN-TIME.  To enable this feature, Select EDITà System Parameters à {Hardware} tab, then set:  “Recipe: Save System Parameters:” to “YES”.

NOTE: To activate any changes, the HMI must be reset (Set-Bit LB:9045=set ON) or a parameter transfer function (Set-Bit LB:9044=set ON) needs to be performed.
