ALLIN1DC WORKLIGHT

Post by Gary S »

The AllIn1DC has an output connection on the top of the board along with the flood and mist outputs. how is this switch activated with the operators control panel control as there is no light button on the OCP?

Typical PLC programs use the Aux7 key for this.

I added the light output to my PLC program and toggle the state of it with a button on the control panel. I did get a custom control panel made that has a light button on it, but any spare or aux button could be used. Sometimes I find it handy to turn the light off as the glare makes it hard to see when you are doing manual and setup things or taking a photo.

Also, a light button could be easily added to the VCP. There is a light icon in the icons folder.
