Dear iX Talk Community,
I have successfully completed 2 projects using the T10A and am now working on an implementation using the iX RT, which I am having issues with.

I am using iX Developer V2.0 SP1
and set the Target Type: PC 800x600 (IX RT V2.0)
Controller: Simatic S7IsoTcp

Siemens Hardware I/O (IW10, IW12 etc.) is configured as Data Type: FLOAT, Data Type: INT16 with a Gain: 0.1 since the data is scaled as 1/10 deg. C.

Neither AnalogNumeric: DisplayFormat: Decimal nor a CircularMeter will display the value of the I/O accessed correctly (most of the time)
Running the simulation with controller communication on my development laptop or running iX RT on the target PC seem to respond identical:
Displayed values (ambient temp. 23.5...24.5C) are erratic and without pattern.

I did however observe once that one page with 6 x AnalogNumeric and 6 x CircularMeter was reading perfectly fine, suggesting it was a 'build' (compilation) issue.
I have implemented this data display successfully on a T10A without a hitch and without the need of swapping high and low-byte.
I would appreciate any advice.

An other issue is, that my buttons don't seem to work as they used to
Mouse Leave: Reset Tag
Mouse Down: Set Tag
Mouse Up: Reset Tag
Pushing the button on the iX RT does not trigger a change in state of the associated tags, although pushing the same button running the simulation with controller communication on my development laptop does change the state of the associated tags.
The button does change to a graphical depressed state in both cases.

BTW:
I was not able to find and quick-start or description on how to even start iX RT on the PC and how to download a project. Discovered that by experiment.
There are no shortcuts to C:\Program Files\Beijer Electronics\IX Developer RT 2.0\bin\CommunicationServer.exe created during installation.
TargetControl.exe closes with an error not sure what that is good for.

Thanks for taking time to read my post and hopefully provide me with ideas to test.

Best Regards
Jan Eckert

Regarding "Erratic values displayed when accessing Siemens IWxy analog I/O":
I ran a few more test and determined that the problem lies with IWxy located at odd addresses. Perhaps Beijer can explain why.
Most of my analog I/O (AI) is located at even addresses except for two AI.
As soon as these addresses were included in the project, the entire analog I/O was affected badly.
Once I relocated the two addresses to even locations and included in the project everything work expectedly.
Interestingly I have implemented a work around using MWxy (internal memory) with even and odd addresses without any problem.

Regarding "Pushing the button on the iX RT does not trigger a change in state of the associated tags":
For whatever reason the "Project/Settings/Mouse Input Delay setting" is set to 2000ms by default, once that is set to 200ms everything work expectedly.
