Setting up Custom Buttons in Commander for use with West EC-44 controls.


Commander software includes an option that allows the user to design a set of custom buttons that will be available on the single loop display.  All controls that utilize these buttons need to be the same since only one set of buttons is available.




With Commander and the Custom Buttons feature in Commander as setup below you can:


Run the currently selected profile


Hold a running Profile


Abort a running Profile


Release Hold


RUN, HOLD, RELEASE HOLD & ABORT require the operator to also sending the Confirmation (CONFIRM Button below) before the function is implemented.   Instructions for creating custom programmer function buttons in Commander are shown below.


Custom Buttons Configuration Example for EC-44 Controller:


Go to: Commander / Setup / Setup Custom / Buttons



Configure as above for use with EC-44 control.


In Setup / Define Loops in Commander for loops that you want these buttons available use a Control Type of: 6 Control (Custom Buttons)


Example single loop screen using custom buttons as defined above:
