Hi all. I am creating an HMI to connect with a Parker ACR9040 EPL motion controller. Parker/Compumotor supplies a VB.NET Com Server that allows you to create a VB application that can connect to the motion controller via serial, ethernet, USB, etc. It is easy to use with a VB project. However, I would like to use AdvancedHMI and am not sure how to use the Com Server drivers with AdvancedHMI. Does anyone have any hints?
You would need to create a wrapper class that that implements the ICommComponent interface. The implementation is fairly straight forward. The most difficult part is implementing subscriptions. If you open the ICommComponent.vb file, you can see the routine that need to be implemented to make it compatible with the controls.
