Product Line:
Vijeo Designer, XBTGC/GK/GT, HMIGK/GTO/GTU/STO/STU, iPC, Panel PC, Box PC

Resolution:
Below are the Runtime specifications for Vijeo Designer v6.2.

Run-Time Specifications

  • Use the following statistics as only a guideline for creating your own applications. Some applications may not be able to run despite remaining below these documented numbers because of memory limitations. To make sure your application will run correctly, check the memory requirement for each panel and operation, and compare these requirements with your target machine. For details, see Section 25.3.3, Checking Memory Usage. Always test your application thoroughly before running it in a production environment.
  • The following statistics were obtained by testing each individually on factory machines. These numbers will vary depending on the operating environment, the complexity of the application, the CPU load, and the amount of memory available on the target machine. Some of these performance numbers can be enhanced with upgraded memory, CF Cards/SD Cards, and hard disks.
Panels
Number of panels/popup windows (limit) The number of panels that can be created in a project depends on the amount of flash memory available on your target machine and on the size of  each panel. For example, you can have a project on an XBTGT6330 target that contains 100 panels.
As the number of panels for your project increases, memory consumption also increases.
Number of objects on a panel (recommended) The number of objects that can be placed on a panel depends on the target machine's panel height and width. For example, you can have a project on an XBTGT6330 target that contains 200 objects per panel.
As the number of objects placed on a panel increases, memory consumption also increases.
Popup windows (limit) Number of popup windows that can be displayed at run time: maximum of 3, which includes the popup keypad.
Large Toolchest parts On some targets, large parts placed on a panel may cause a wait time to occur when changing panels. For example, on an XBTGC 2230U, switching from one panel to another panel with a Web Browser took several seconds.
Actions
Maximum number of actions 100
Scripts
Maximum length of each script (recommended)
For other script recommendations, see Section 18.3.4, Key Points.
50 lines
Error Logging
Number of run-time events stored 100
Alarms and Events
Number of Alarm Groups and Event Groups in a Target (limit) 32 max.
Number of Alarm Categories and Remote Categories in a Target (limit) 32 max.
Number of event records in an event group (limit) The number of event records you can store in each event group is 10,000 max. Events are recorded in both History and Log, which results in having two event records for each event that occurs. For example, if you set 10,000 as the maximum number of total records, you can only store 5000 events.
Number of alarms in alarm groups (limit) The number of Log and History alarm records you can store in each alarm group is 10,000 max.
In the Alarms node, when Backup Alarm Group is set to No, you can store up to 80,000 total Log and History alarms in a target's alarm groups.
When Backup Alarm Group is Yes, the number of alarms is limited by the space available on SRAM.
Number of alarms in an alarm category (limit) and remote category 60,000
Alarm Backup
The size required by each alarm message depends on the alarm type.
Active: 20 bytes per record
History: 24 bytes per record
Log: 16 bytes per record
SRAM Capacity (Backup) is different for each target machine type.
128 to 512 KB (Depends on model. Refer to your hardware manual.)
For information about how much SRAM is required by your project, see Section 4.5.1, Target Properties.

  • For iPCs, if persistent variables such as alarm variables and data logging variables are used, a maximum of 8000 variables can be supported for each iPC target.
Number of variables you can share (recommended) HMIG5U / HMIG5U2 / iPC / XBTGTW Series HMIG3U / XBTGC / XBTGT / XBTGH / HMIGTO / HMISTO / HMISTU / HMISCU / HMIGK Series XBTGK Series
400 300 300
  • The Maximum Number of Shared Variables is the recommended maximum number of variables that is shared at any one time NOT the maximum number of Sharing-enabled (Read-only or Read/Write) variables. In other words, the number of variables that you set to Read-Only or Read/Write has no limits; only the number of variables that are accessed by other targets is limited. Performance may become an issue if you exceed the recommended maximum.

Number of security groups per target 20 max.
Number of users per security group 100 max.
Number of users per target 100 max.
Number of users per Vijeo Designer project 200 max.

The user application you create in the Editor is restricted by target machine run-time specifications. The following table lists the memory capacity of available target machines. DRAM memory affects how much information you can display on the panel at one time. Internal Memory affects the total size of your application. SRAM memory affects how much information you can store between run-time sessions.
If you are using a tablet/smartphone, the memory capacity depends on the model. See the manufacturer's specifications for more information.

*1 The XBTGT5430 model comes in two versions that differ in their DRAM size (32 MB or 64 MB). To determine the version of the XBTGT5430, look for the following serial numbers on the manufacturer's label on your target machine:  
  • 32 MB: PV: 01, RL: 00, SV: 1.0
  • 64 MB: PV: 01, RL: 01, SV: 1.1
In Vijeo Designer when you select XBTGT5430 as a target machine, by default it is set to the 64 MB version. No additional memory check is performed for the 32 MB version. Make sure your application does not exceed the amount of DRAM available on your target machine. To find out the amount of memory available on a target machine, see Section 26.4.6, Displaying Memory.
