  3. Please understand that RSLinx Classic and RSLinx Enterprise are two different softwares and are configured separately. RSLinx Classic is for communication between the PC and the PLC for use with the various RSLogix Softwares (5, 500, 500, Studio), while RSLinx Enterprise (or Factory Talk Linx) is for Factory Talk View Studio to define communication between the PLC and the HMI.  The RSLinx Enterprise Device Shortcut as actually compiled with the application in the MER and transferred to the HMI.
  4. Ok thanks, I had seen configurations for equipment 1 and 2 and thought it auto-sensed it.
  5. When I use RSLinx Enterprise inside View Studio for ME, I have to manually add each device to the Ethernet driver, both HMI and PLC. It doesn't browse and find them automatically. That may be a quirk of our network, though.
  6. How is RSLinx Classic seeing the PLC?  Is it an Ethernet Driver? Then you must configure the EtherNet Driver in Enterprise.
  7. The issue is I can not see the plc or hmi in RSLinx Enterprise, however I can see them in RSLinx Classic. 
  8. WIthin RSLinx Enterprise, can you see the PLC?  Can you see the new HMI?  Are you going to communicate with EtherNet between the PLC and HMI? If that Driver is not already present, add it. Then add the PLC and HMI to the tree in the Design (Local) Tab, then copy from Design to Runtime. Then create a Device Shortcut and point it to the PLC Processor.  Create the mer and download.
  9. So I am following this procedure, and I am stuck on page 53 of 102. Step 3/4, I can't see my controller under the ethernet driver. If I close FactoryTalk View Studio, and open RSLinx I can see the controller and existing field HMI fine. It seems like I am missing a step that I can't find in the guide. We have 4 pieces of equipment with their own controller and HMI. I am able to see the controllers for equipment 1 and 2, but not 3 or 4. And 4 is what I am trying to connect to, in order to test out the converted hmi program.

    Slope formula: y = mx + b   You provided your answer. 9999 / 83 =120 b = -20   gtsuport
  11. Etn021 ip address change problem

    No, I didn't change node number. I will try to change ip address via DM or web interface when I go to site next week. But, I wish to know if someone have the similar experience...
  12. Analog input Omron CPM2 with Syswin 3.4

    So an always on bit with a DIFU and bellow the difu contact with move. and how to determine the range? On move i can only have the source and one destination memory right? the source then it will be 4mA? >> 0 ? Thanks 
  13. Etn021 ip address change problem

    is it possible that you changed the unit number, along with the node number?
  14. Analog input Omron CPM2 with Syswin 3.4

    You could use an Always On bit, or a pulse bit. Addresses should be in the Programming Manual.
  15. Analog input Omron CPM2 with Syswin 3.4

    Whats hold me is the following, how to i program the analog input to a move  in combination with other instruction? is that possible?  I dont want to use SCL . Thanks in advance
  16. Etn021 ip address change problem

    Did someone try to change IP address via web interface or via DM area?!

    dear friends,please I need any document or video which explain all the necessary steps(configuration) to do a project with rslogix 5000, rsemulator 5000 and rsview machine regards
  19. Etn021 ip address change problem

    I tried with serial cable toolbus, cs1h-h cpu64h. First time I success to change, but second time I tried I can't change. I tried cpu power off, etn21 reset, but it always displays message Transfer failed.   I also tried with Transfer to PLC option, and check IO Table and Special Unit Setup. Special Unit Setup always fails.  
  20. Udhaya, good afternoon,

                              I have a bar scanner connected to a DELTA hmi through the USB port of the panel, when doing a bar scan I can see it in the field (barcode input), but I do not see the value saved in the address that I put it. I saw that a while ago you had the same problem, could you solve it?

    Thanks and regards.


  21. DB vs PLC Tags

    I'm sure there are better opinions, but a DB is the equivalent of a udt.  Eventually leading to it's use in a FB with an instance equating to an AOI.
  22. Etn021 ip address change problem

    When you change the IP address, you will lose connection because you are configured to connect with the previous module address. Are you sure that it did not change to the new address? Try connecting again with the new address. Alternatively, try connecting via serial port or USB then change the IP address. (You didn't mention the PLC model)
  23. Analog input Omron CPM2 with Syswin 3.4

    So what exactly is holding you up? Do you know the formula? The formula is in the SCL instruction Help section, the manual that gtsuport has provided, or a google search. Try performing it in a spreadsheet first.
  24. FX1S output failure

    Hi guys I have an Mitsubishi FX1S PLC on my site which i suspect has a failed output but i just need to confirm that this is the actual issue. The output is Y0 and is  running a small little paddle mixer in 2 different options, either in constant or pulsed Both of these options are selectable through the GOT100O HMI. When i select the pulsed option the output Y0 light comes on but nothing happens. What should happen is that the output comes on and turns on a relay which in turn is giving an inverter a run signal to run the motor for the paddle for 3 milliseconds as the machine doses and then stops. The machine is dosing as normal but the paddle does not pulse.  When i select the option to run the paddle  on constant the relay pulls in and the inverter runs with no problem which tells me the relay and inverter are both fine. When i switch back to the pulsed option and i put a piece of link wire between COM 0 and Y0 and mimic a pulse signal the relay pulls in and the inverter runs and the paddle pulses as it should. Everything else on the circuit looks ok and i have checked all connections for tightness, and there are no error messages on the screen and nothing is disabled or bypassed. The guys have told me that before it stopped working completely it would run for a while and then stop and start intermittently.   Does this point to a failed output?
  25. Analog input Omron CPM2 with Syswin 3.4

    Thanks for your advice, but i would like to do it with math and use move and divide instructions. my range is -20 celcius to 100 celsius, 0 to 9999 , 4-20mA. i have then 9999 / 120 cenlsius = 83 per 1 celsius.  Thanks in advance  
  26. 1769-L32E Need t2 ethernet ports

    Thanks Gentlemen.  I appreciate all the answers. My supplier decided to try the job with the existing equipment.   But if it doesn't doesnt work I'll be digging into your suggestions. Again, thanks a lot!
  27. I have cts-etn021 module, and I change ip address via i/o tabe unit setup, and also set rotary switch to last segment of ip address. Let say ip address is and rotary switch is set to 93. Now when I want to change ip address, from i/o unit table setup, and click on Transfer pc to unit, error is displayed *Transfer failed 11 mode and download failed* What is the best way to change the ip address of this module?! Ps. Tried in program/stop mode and also via toolbus, and ethernet.
