1-Up with DMC Denver

1-Up with DMC Denver

The Denver office finally tried out the 1-Up Arcade Bar in downtown Denver. I say finally because 1-Up is located exactly 354 feet from the entrance of our building (according to Google Maps). Despite the fact that DMC Denver officially opened in April 2015 (and has been occupied by DMC engineers for even longer), our group had yet to meander over to 1-UP for some brews and old-school gaming. The DMC Chicago office has hit up a beercade on more than one occasion, even th...

Using a Script to "Multiplex" Boolean Tags in Siemens Portal

Using a Script to "Multiplex" Boolean Tags in Siemens Portal

After spending some time working with multiplexed tags in Siemens Portal, I found that I was unable to set boolean values through a multiplexed tag. Instead of using a multiplexed tag, a simple script can help achieve the same function. The function of the script is to take the input parameters and set the proper boolean tag based on those parameters. Example: Controlling Multiple Motors with One Pop-up In this example, multiple motors need to be controlled from an HMI. Without a script, e...

Within the Configuration view, ArConfig contains the Runtime Configuration. The Runtime configuration includes all sorts of useful information, including the unit's assigned IP address, host name, subnet mask, and much more. These functions serve to be extremely useful when configuring a device.  However, if you want to change these setting from the HMI of a unit, there are a few more steps involved.  In the Logical view, add the AsARCfg library to your global librarie...

7 Games for 7 Core Values: Game Night Welcome Party

It didn't shock me on my first day at DMC to learn that everybody loves games. We have a ping pong table, foosball table, pop-a-shot, and chess boards around the office. Along with my fellow new hire, Peter, we decided to embrace DMC's love of games for our welcome party.  Since we had just finished our new employee training classes, we decided we would play 7 games, one to represent each of our Core Values for our game night. Some of the Core Values related very closely to the...

Visual Studio 2015 Debugging Tips

We had a great summer here at DMC's Chicago office. We got to watch the Air and Water Show at Belmont Harbor, go to the Circus, drink on a boat, and play some beach volleyball. However, for a .NET developer like me the real highlight of the summer was the release of Visual Studio 2015. VS2015 was released officially on July 20th, and over the past several weeks I've gotten a chance to dig into it and explore all of the great new features. This new version of Visual Studio includes many i...

Sales Tips and Sailing at DMC Boston's ADCM

A few times per year, each of the DMC offices takes the day off to work on company improvement and have some fun. We call it the All Day Company Meeting, or ADCM. Our Spring 2015 ADCM featured a brewery tour and indoor rock-climbing, so we decided to get some fresh air and take to the seas this time around. With the recent opening of two new DMC offices in New York and Houston, DMC's Boston office got the chance to share an ADCM with employees from all three offices. We spent the morning ...

Messaging at the Marina for DMC Chicago's ADCM

DMC holds an off-site All Day Company Meeting twice per year where everyone takes the day off to team-build, share knowledge, and spend time together. Some of our recent All Day Company Meetings involved WhirlyBall, high wall climbing, and indoor trampolines. One meeting last year ended with everyone laying around on picnic blankets listening to managers recounting escapades from DMC's early days. Inspired by that, this year's fall ADCM broke the DMC Chicago team into grou...
