  • Message light software

    We recently got a new machine with the fancy pants LED lights in the Z tower. It appears as though it only works for the latest versions of PCDMIS? Is the message light software able to run with 2013 MR1 or is there some kind of workaround to allow it to work with 2013? I've been trying to browse around on here but i haven't been able to find many threads about the message light software.and cant seem to find an option to add or change what version of PCDMIS it connects to.

    It works on our Optiv with V2014.1.
    I'd think it's a machine setting and not PCDMIS.

      It's in the Notification Center in the PC-Dmis folder in the Start Window.

        By notification center, do you mean the settings editor? I don't have any notification center in the PC-Dmis folder

      BK you're lucky..... (if lights are what it's at!) I noticed our Optiv on booting had red, green, blue & yellow lights. Snappy! But upon asking Hex peeps (and as you mention) Notification is dependent on machine,
      so alas! I was out of luck.
      Our Performance 4.4.3 Dual Z circa 2015 you'd think would be a light show and then some. Unfortunately? It's favorite light is red. (was demo so go figure)
      At any rate, was also told Notification and our Optiv might shake hands in a future release........
      P.S. Notification is not tied to a Demon release, so grab it from: ftp://wilcoxassoc.com/NotificationCenter/1.0/Release/
      (x86 or x64) and see if you are notified

        I think i might have left out something in my original question. We bought a new Global S green that has LED lights built into the machine. The LED lights use a software called Hexagon Message Light that controls the machine event light settings INSTEAD OF notification center. Currently it will only open with PC-Dmis 2019. When i try and launch 2013 MR1, Message Light shows a message saying "PC-Dmis has been closed or is in error". I'm looking to figure out if there is a way to get Hexagon Message Light to connect to PC-Dmis 2013 or any other version of PC-Dmis.

          Notification Center is the one which you are looking for. Notification center is used to configure the machine action events with defined colors which will be displayed on the tower lights of the CMM Machine. Along with light events, sound events can also be played for the list of events defined.

            How do you get it to lock in to your likings? mine don't seem to be changing anything. I even changed everything for admin rights and even run it as admin. Do you have to re boot everything to get it to stick?

            Do you have a bluetooth device to communicate with CMM? You can test the sound events by triggering a measurement routine. Also, you have to turn ON the registry Notifications in settings editor.

          Ok weird but to follow up on this, I had to download this from the Help file. I really didn't do anything but Run it, and the lights changed when I changed the settings in the Notification Center. Can't really explain it, but works now after the download???

            I would love to give a more of a detail answer on this, but this all I did, was not working, then it was.
