LedColorStateDescription
keyGreenled_on.jpgAlways on. Turns off when at least one key is pressed.
comGreenled_on.jpgIf on, indicates that the connection between the Terminal and QMOVE is not active.
The causes:
no connection between the devices;
mismatch of checksums between the Terminal and QMOVE applications;
interference on the serial line.
When the communication is restored, the led turns off.
stateYellowled_on.jpg led_lamp.jpgIf an abnormality occurs during communication between the Terminal and the QMOVE, led blinking with a 2Hz frequency. The malfunction can be hardware source (missed connection, noisy line) or software errors (incorrect readings of QMOVE variables).
The causes:
Time-Out when the terminal does not receive the response from the QMOVE.
No match when QMOVE application checksums are different from the file symbols used to build your application on the Terminal.
Read error when the read requests are made to variables with index and that index is outside of the allowed values.
Write error same for read error but for write operations.
Backup error when the data backup command of the QMOVE is not successful
Restore error when the command to restore data of thr QMOVE is not successful or when is given a command restore application and had not been previously backed up.
When the status led is flashing you should check what was the error that produced it; This can be done by accessing the Info page of the SETUP to 'Com Status' command. The error and then the blinking is cleared only on shutdown or after you exit the SETUP.

7. General information of operation

This chapter will introduce some concepts and describes some operations of the product. These contents are partly related and implemented in firmware. This software implements all features that allow the product to be a component of the system programmable Qmove.

To best understand the terms used in this chapter, it is important to know the organisation of data and memory in a QMOVE application. QMOVE applications are programs written in QCL language that, translated in binary code, are transferred onto QMOVE hardware and saved there. In the hardware, the microprocessor runs has a program called firmware that interprets the above binary code instructions and performs the operations associated to them.

A QCL application, in addition to the instructions, is also composed of variables that the QCL instructions act on.. Some of these variables are retentive, i.e. their values remain unaltered from shut-off to start up. The flow chart below illustrates the organisation of data in a QCL application transferred to the memory of any QMOVE hardware:

It can be noted that, the QMOVE hardware has several mass storage devices:

“Flash memory”, where the following is saved:

  • QCL program: the series of QCL instructions translated into binary by the compiler.
  • HMI program: the series of HMI screens translated into binary by the compiler. This program only exists when the QMOVE hardware has a display.
  • Configuration data: the calibration and configuration data, the touch-screen calibration settings, the ethernet communication configuration data (IP address, etc…), etc.

“Non volatile memory”, which stores:

  • Retentive variables: the group of variables that remains unaltered on a shut-off and startup (e.g. SYSTEM, ARRAYS, DATAGROUP, etc).

“Volatile memory”, which stores:

  • Not retentive variables: the group of variables that is set to 0 at each startup (e.g. GLOBAL, ARRGBL, etc).

The volatile data memory is also used as dynamic memory. i.e. the memory used by the firmware for internal operations and active HMI screen management.

“Mass storage internal device” is managed by a standard filesystem and is useful to save information by the DATASTORE device (read - write binary or csv files with recipes, logs, variuous setups, etc).
It 'also used to store the backup of the application QMOVE and other service files.

“Mass storage external device” is managed by a standard filesystem and is useful for loading the QMOVE application, data loading/saving, firmware update or to save informations by the DATASTORE device.

:important:ATTENZIONE: WARNING: The use of these procedures is potentially dangerous (see for example the application delete) and it is preferable that is carried out by a specialist supervision.

The system functions are special procedures that allow the user to perform various operations such as setting/calibration of devices, saving/restoring data and application on/from removable devices, deleting the application and management of storage devices.
To access the new system functions simply login to instrument SETUP.

Note: If there is no Terminal application software will automatically enter in SETUP.

7.3.2.2.9 Com.St.

Reports the status of the serial communication. If everything is OK the message: Ok
If the ‘COM’ led is ON and the'STATE' led flashing, the connection between the HMI and the QMOVE is not active. The reasons can be:

Checksum wrong Appears the ‘No match’ message, which means that the application built for the Terminal is not compatible with the QMOVE software and then the communication is not established because it may create incompatibilities in data of the system. The ‘No match’ condition excludes communication problems due to connection errors or problems related to serial ports.

Communication interrupted Appears the ‘Time Out’ message, which means that the terminal not received response or the response has not been received completely. If the ‘COM’ led is ON it probably means there is a malfunction of one of the two devices (QMOVE or HMI) or connection between the device. If the 'COM' led is OFF means that at least one ‘Time Out’ occured from the power ON (example an electrical noise).

Reading errors Appears the ‘Read Error’ message, which means that the the response string to a reading didn't the correct syntax of the Protocol. This can happen if the Terminal makes a request of a variable with index out of range. For example the read request of an element of an array, where the value of i is greater than the size of the array itself; if i is a constant value that the compiler of the application can inspect and report the error, but if i is the value that is contained in a variable can take place such an error.

Writing errors Appears the ‘Write Error’ message, which means that the response string to a reading didn't the correct syntax laid down in the Protocol. All that has been described for the readings also applies to torn writes

Backup error Appears the ‘Backup Error’ message, which means that the QMOVE application data backup operation is not successful.

Restore error Appears the ‘Restore Error’ message, which means that the restore operation of data of the QMOVE application is not successful.

In this section are collected all the product information you need while you are programming, or during development of an application QCL.

7.4.1 Development softwares

For programming the product you should use the Qview-5 for QCL and Qpaint-5 for the design of graphics pages. Both of these software are contained in a software package called Qworkbench and it is freely downloadable from the site Qem (in the download section).

For programming with the development software QPaint-5 it is important select the correctly the target. Select ProjectTarget Configuration ans select the correctly model.



Memories used

This paragraph looks at how to measure an estimate of use of the product's memories. The nonvolatile memory is available to memorise the QCL program and has a capacity of 512KB.
The memory space occupied is equal to the size of the .BIN file generated by Qview. The percentage memory occupied can be viewed in the CPU panel of Qview under “Used CODE memory”, or this information can be obtained from the value of parameter “sizeapp” of the QMOS device.

The nonvolatile memory available to memorise the HMI program has a capacity of 5.5MB.
The memory space occupied is equal to the size of the .BIN file generated by Qpaint, whose value (in bytes) is viewed in parameter “memqtp” of the MMIQ2 device.

The nonvolatile data memory used to memorise retentive variables, has a capacity of 819KB.
The percentage memory occupied can be viewed in the CPU panel of Qview, under “Used RETENTIVE”, or this information can be obtained from the value of parameter “sizeret” of the QMOS device.

The volatile data memory used to memorise non ritentive variables has a capacity that depends on various factors (e.g. the HMI and QCL program sizes, the HMI screen being viewed, etc)
The general memory of the free system, available as volatile data memory, is indicated by parameter “memfree” in the MMIQ2 device.
