The language assignment of the user-specific alarm texts is done using the
name of the text file. The appropriate code and the file extension .com are
added to the user file name entered in MBDDE.INI:
The user-specific text files that are now in the directory: <installation path>
\dh\mb.dir are announced to the system using an appropriate entry in the file
To make sure that the modified file MBDDE.INI is not overwritten in the case of
a software update, it is strictly recommended to store it in the intended
USER path (<installation path>\user\mbdde.ini).
Example of adding an additional text file MYPLC_GR.COM:
If the text file MYPLC_GR.COM is created on an external PC and then read in
through the serial interface (e.g. with PCIN), the following lines must be con-
tained at the beginning of the file:
MYPLC_GR.COM: User-specific file for user-specific, German PLC alarm texts
700000 0 0 "DB2.DBX180.0 set"
700001 0 0 "Lubrication pressure missing"
UserPLC= <installation path>\dh\mb.dir\myplc_
Any modifications to alarm texts come only into effect after the appropriate user
interface has been rebooted.
When creating text files, make sure that the date and time are correctly set on
the PCU. Otherwise the user texts might not be displayed on the screen cor-
