The Creation and Navigation of a New Project - Part 4

In part 4 of the FactoryTalk View ME Basics series, Eric Hanley, an automation specialist with ES&E, covers two potential methods for new project creation and navigation.

This video covers creating and navigating a new project in Factory Talk View Studio Machine Edition. There are two methods to create a new application: one through FT View Studio and the other through Studio 5000. The video also explains the importance of selecting the correct hardware and project name. The project explorer, which contains all the project content, is then introduced. Key areas within the explorer include the system folder, the HMI tag folder, and the alarms setup folder. The video also discusses the differences between HMI tags and direct PLC tag referencing, as well as the process of setting up alarms. Keep watching the series to learn more!
