    Hello,
    Please read about the .UYN files in either the Eycon manual or the Eycon tutorial. You will find this information in the "online" books which get installed onto your computer when you install Eurotherm software.

  • I read these but it is not working for me.
    I copied the UYN to the Eycon started and stopped the app but the message stays the same. Do you have more ideas ?

  • Hello Rudi

    The UYN BlockName and Field replacement does work and can be used to make alarm text more readible.
    Using a different block may help also.
    A door is like a valve it opens or closes so consider the use of a Vlv2In opposed to a DigAlarm Block.
    If you want I can have a look at this application if you have a description of the requirements.

  • The User Manual is clear in this for the first 2 paragraphs.
    The third paragraph may put you wrongly this paragraph points to the programmer!

    5.8 DATABASE NAMES
    The LIN database within any Visual Supervisor consists of a number of function blocks, some of which are set by Instrument manufacturer and are common to all Visual Supervisors, and some of which (function block names, alarm names and Enumerations) are specified by the user for the process to be controlled.
    Function block names are open to change using LINtools, either by customers or by OEMs.
    Enumerations are also editable, but not via LinTools (see section 5.8.3).
    These three types of names/text items are held in Database Names files, called .uyn files. These files are optional,but where they exist there will be one per database (application).
    They take the name .uyn.

    5.8.1 Function block names
    Function block names are displayed in two facilities - Alarm History and Logging Groups - and in addition are used in logging files, where they are stored as ASCII.

    The syntax for replacing an existing function block name is:
    ,

    where ‘Block Alias’ is the replacement text and ‘Block Name’ is the original LIN database name for the block.

    For example: First Loop,Lp1 replaces the LIN database name ‘ Lp1’ with the new name ‘First Loop’ .
    Note: The maximum number of characters for block aliases is eight for the small frame (1/4 VGA) unit and 16 for the large frame (XGA) unit.

    5.8.2 Alarm names
    These are displayed in the Alarm History page.
    Syntax:
    ,.Alarms.

    where ‘Alarm Alias’ is the replacement text and ‘AlarmName’ is the original LIN database name for the block.

    For example: Battery,Root.Alarms.BadBat replaces the current name (text) ‘BadBat’ with the new name (text)‘Battery’.
    Note: The maximum number of characters for alarm aliases is seven for the small frame (1/4 VGA) unit and 16 for the large frame (XGA) unit (although only the first eight characters appear in the alarm pane - see section 2.6 for alarm pane details).

    5.8.3 Enumerations
    Enumerations are nearly always Boolean two-state variables, such as TRUE/FALSE and OPEN/CLOSED. They are displayed as part of the Programmer graphical facilities (PREVIEW, PREPLOT, and EDIT), and are also used in logging files.

    There are two types:
    1 Syntax:
    ,., “,”

    For example: ,digital.Out,“OPEN,CLOSED”
    This replaces the existing enumerations in block.field ‘digital.out’ with the new enumerations OPEN,CLOSED.

    2 Syntax:
    ,.., “,”

    For example: ,digital.Out.Bit1,“OPEN,CLOSED”
    This replaces the existing enumerations in block.field.subfield ‘digital.out.bit1’ with the new enumerations OPEN,CLOSED.

    TAGS
    Individual function block fields may be tagged, so that whenever a modification to the block is made from the touch screen, the modification is recorded in Event History.

    Syntax:
    ,..

    where field tag is the name that is used to identify the value when changed.
    For example: LowTemp,PID.SL.Bit0

    Note: the maximum number of characters that may be used for a for a field tag is eight for small frame (1/4VGA) units and sixteen for large frame (XGA) units.
