  • increasing message database/changing index format in Lookup Table display object

    I have a DL105 PLC which stores a BCD number at a certain memory location. I also have a set of msgs which are to be displayed on EA3 T4CL acc to this BCD number. As I understand, the message numbers in LUT display are decimals. So, for displaying a message corresponding to BCD 10, the message has to be written against decimal number 16 in the LUT display message database.Due to this conversion, the number of messages that can be displayed is limited. I would like to know if there is a possibility of increasing message database (>255). Or if there is chance of indexing the message database in BCD.

    Do the conversion in the PLC.

    LD v2000
    BIN
    OUT V2001

    That's all the ladder it takes to get it to be a decimal in the DL05.
