Enable Notification Bit

Select this check box to send a notification when the ESC key is used to exit the password input window after a change screen operation initiated by the device/PLC.

This will not work when changing screens by touch.

Notification Bit Address

When you cancel a password input window displayed via the Device/PLC control with the [ESC] key, the designated Notification Bit Address turns ON.

From [Project] menu, point to [System Settings] and click [Display Unit] to open the dialog box and click [Display Settings] tab. If [Reflect in Device/PLC] is not selected, monitor the notification bit. If it turns ON, on the device/PLC reset the [Change-To Screen] to the same number as the [Current Screen]. When screen numbers match, the password input window closes.

  • To operate [Change-To Screen] via a Device/PLC, please configure the System Data Area.
    5.4.6 System Settings [Display Unit] - [System Area] Settings Guide

  • When forced screen change is set up ([System Area Start Address]+8, bit 15 is ON), input from the password input window is canceled when the [Clear After Time Has Elapsed]. Although the Notification Bit Address turns ON, the password input window continues to display.

Clear Security Level

This feature specifies whether to return the security level status to "0", assuming no display unit operations/screen changes are performed within the time specified in [Timer].

Timer

Specify the auto clear time from 1 to 60 minutes.

  • When using an internal device address bit operation, setting bit 0 of LS9300 OFF -> ON clears the security level and resets the security level value in LS9301 to zero. After the Security Level Clear occurs, return LS9300's 0 bit to OFF. (LS9301 is read-only)

Action on Screen Change

Once the security level becomes higher, the current level will not be lowered unless it is automatically cleared or cleared with the security control address (LS9300). Therefore, you can change the screen as required.

When changing to a screen with a security level lower than the current security level, the level is lowered to the security level of the screen change.
Therefore, next time you switch the screen with lower security level to the screen with higher security level, you will require password authentication.

  • This applies only when changing base screens (including sub display screens)

  • If [Input Password When Level Increases] is selected in User ID Mode, the system variable #H_LoginUserID will not be updated when the level is lowered on screen change.

  • When using GP-Viewer feature, even if [Input Password When Level Increases] is selected on GP-Viewer side, this will not function. This always operates with [Record Security Level].
