I/O Faceplate Template

Name: I_O_FacePlate_16pt.sym

Custom Properties: Labels for points 00-15, TagNames for points 00-15, Line1 and 2 label, Module Type Label

Description: An I/O template that can be used to show the status of any I/O point on a module in the PLC rack. The LEDs not only change from black to green, but show ON/OFF as a way to help if the operator is color blind.

Notes: This will help Engineers and Maintenance staff save time by not having to open the control cabinet. View the I/O status right on the HMI Screen. One way to use this would be to create a screen that shows the entire I/O rack, and make each module open up a new screen that shows this symbol.

Ideas for improvement:

  1. Add other configurations for Analog, or 8 point or 4 point modules

  2. This symbol uses only IWS native objects. You could add a faceplate picture for more “realism”. 

Here’s how to use this symbol:

Copy the .sym files into your Symbol folder of where InduSoft Web Studio is installed. This is usually “C:\Program Files (x86)\InduSoft Web Studio v7.1\Symbol” or similar. Either create a new folder or copy it into an existing one, such as “IO_Faceplates”.
