  • ULCD32PTU Simulation with Flowcode

    Hi everyone,
    I am a student in a French school and I am currently working in a school project where I use a 4d system ULCD32PTU. I was able to develop an interface with 4dvisigenie and since we use Flowcode V8 in class. I would like to simulate this interface on flowcode however what I have seen is not feasible so this is why I am looking for help here.
    Thanks for your understanding and good day to you

    Hello Jordan

    Thank you for choosing our product, and welcome to the forum!

    Unfortunately, it will not be possible.

    The only way to generate ViSi Genie file is through Workshop4 as we have our own software we used for the development of projects.

    Best Regards,
    Kevin

      Thank you for your answer

      I have made an interface with Workshop 4d with button gauges etc. now I need to make a code to display the values of my sensors on the screen gauges.
      For that I saw a post on the Matrix Forum ( https://www.matrixtsl.com/mmforums/v...i+genie#p62106) however the post is a little dated I haven't found a more recent one

        Hello Jordan,

        I have checked the link that you have attached.

        I haven't yet used the flow code software with regards to communicating with our display.

        Although as far as I understand, as long as you have the required hardware the simulation on the uLCD-32PTU should work.

        The sensors are attached to the EB006 programmer which has the 16F877A Microcontroller to send and receive the data.

        So when the simulation is pressed on the Flowcode, it will start to run the script which will get the reading of the sensor and
        transfer the data on the display.

        It will be best if you first check the hardware configuration ensuring all are attached accordingly.

        Best Regards,

        Kevin

          Hello, good evening,

          Thank you for everything. I recently received the screen (ulcd32PTU) with its programming cable however I plugged everything in as it should but windows doesn't recognize the device and so Workshop 4D either so I can't program it.

            Hi Jordan,

            Have you installed the drivers for this?

            You can refer to the 4D Programming Cable for the installation of drivers on Windows OS.

            Let me know if it resolves the issue.

            Best Regards,
            Kevin

              I just installed the driver by launching (CP210xVCPInstaller_x64.exe) I followed the installation I connected the screen and the cable and it is still not recognized

                Hello Jordan,

                Can you go to Device Manager, under Ports (COM & LPT), and check if Silicon Labs CP210x is installed.

                This is the COM port that you will use in Workshop4.

                Also, I assume that you are using the 4D Programming cable to connect your display and your PC.

                Best Regards,
                Kevin

                    Try to restart your PC and see if it resolves your issue

                    Can you take a clear picture of your current setup on how the display is connected to the PC? Also, can you confirm that you are using the 4D Programming Cable

                    Hello Jordan,

                    Thank you for confirmation.

                    Referring to the picture on post #9, there seems to be an error showing. Does it appear only when you plug the cable?
                    Does the USB port work on other devices?
                    Also, can you try to plug the cable on a different USB port and check for any hardware changes?

                    Perhaps, you can check this website if you are experiencing an error after plugging the cable
                    https://www.drivereasy.com/knowledge...or-windows-10/

                    If you have another PC/laptop you can also try to install the driver and plug the programming cable to see
                    if you can detect the device.

                    I hope this helps.
                    Best Regards,
                    Kevin

                      Yes it appears only when I put the cable

                        I installed all the drivers (except audio) I tried to assign the driver to the programming cable and I had windows errors. I didn't get the ink to test on another computer. I have tested what was proposed on the page (Unknown USB Device) and the problem is not solved. I think it would be a good thing if we went through Teamviewer or Anydesk to solve the problem

                          Hello Jordan,

                          It seems that by using the driver easy, you are also changing/updating some drivers which are unrelated to the issue.

                          Sorry for being not clear enough.

                          Can you follow these steps and let me know if it resolves the issue.

                          1.) Attach the cable into the USB port
                          2.) Go to Device Manager
                          3.) Uninstall the Device with the yellow warning (not recognized by Windows)
                          4.) Unplug the cable
                          5.) Download the CP210x driver by going through this link: https://www.silabs.com/documents/pub...ows_Driver.zip
                          6.) Extract the file and install the driver
                          7.) Plug the cable again

                          Windows 10 should automatically assign the necessary drivers for you.

                          Best Regards,
                          Kevin
