Custom Signal Event Handler?
« on: June 04, 2015, 04:40:23 PM »
Just curious ...
Could the Input/output signals been setup with a Custom Signal Event Handler?
...It would dispense with the need for polling input signals.

Mach 4 would host the server since it is the core. Clients would sign up to receive/trigger events.

Modbus?

I was looking at the same typology kinda (publisher -> server -> subscriber) but having a signal from the mill be the publisher to a "channel" on a MQTT server and m4 being the subscriber (using a PLC script to ping the channel). That way I can control m4 from anywhere there is a Internet connection if I am away from the area. Well, theoretically anyway.

I know, your thinking, why go through an external server for signal processing when I can just send the signal straight to m4.....just trying to look a things from all directions. That's all.  I'm really interested in learning more about TCP/IP config & comms with m4. I get where you are coming from. That's neat!

it is a good idea if you use a tablet that gets updated  info from the machine and you can kill it from a tablet and use it as a pendint. for when you go of to make a coffee, or other rest stop so when you get back to the machine you will know there is going to be no Decepticons waiting for you or a F machine
