  2. We use this driver very often. You need the Festo Configuration Tool to program the settings in the drive. You can use this drive like a stepper motor, so a relative move on every pulse on an input (see attached scheme) or you can program fixed positions into the drive. A position is selected though the inputs. So on your (Omron) PLC you just use digital inputs and outputs.

  4. Seems like you want a momentary pushubtton.  Try changing the Switch Style from Toggle to Momentary.
  5. Help with PLC communication basics

    Thanks for the very helpful replies everyone.  I'm going to chew on this for a little while before making any more decisions.
  6. Hello. I have a m221 and use basic somaks to programe it. The problem is the following. I use %mw0:x0 to allocate a button on off HMI, If on the HMI press the button to set him "ON",and pull the voltage from HMI and M221, when power supply, the button is still "ON", it does not return to an initial state "OFF". HMI i use a Weintek 8070 programmed with easybuilder pro. How can I do that when I power the HMI and M221, the button to be OFF, even if the voltage was off when the button was ON. Thank you.

    Thank you very much Steve.
  8. In your Global Variable table, click on the left side of the "Comment" column. There is an invisible black button that will appear. Click on it then.
  9. How do I edit the comment associated with array elements? I can't find how to do this other than actually using the element in the program and then editing or typing in the comment.

    Thank for your reply, you are true, Mitsubishi said the same 
  11. interfacing A172SENC motion control

    First of all, the A172SENC is not a motion controller, rather it is a positioning or encoder feedback module that plugs into a Motion Controller CPR rack. See if the following topic within MrPLC helps. A series Motion Control
  12. Looking at the NE555 (Texas Instruments), it says that the output is a TTL, so in my mind it's sourcing not sinking.  I would expect the output of the generator to be turning on and off at 5V.  I question whether you can even apply 24VDC to the COM 0.  I haven't read the ML1400 specifications, but you would also need to know the threshold voltage at which IN 0 will be seen as "On' or "Off".

    What do you see? Greyed out buttons?   What messages do you get?  

    What is different is that the P_1s bit is a one-shot (differentiate UP).  It is only on for one scan.  Right click on the contact and choose differentiate up.  My thought is that using the P_1s bit will allow the code to clear out the buffer.  For some reason, A392.14 is staying on, so the RXD instruction is only executed one time.  There is clearly data in the buffer since A394 = 16, so the P_1s bit would empty out the buffer.  Perhaps your device is sending multiple versions of the same string?  See if there is a setting to have it only send one at a time.  You could also connect this up to a PC with an RS232 adapter to look at it with a Hyperterminal like progam to see what your device is sending.
  15. Machine Edition View for Quick Panel

    Send me a Quick Designer backup to stephen dot bailey2 at Verizon dot net. I'll import it into a newer version of Quick Designer and then into Proficy. Tell me what version of Proficy Machine Edition you're using so I don't import into something too new for you.
  16. PLC5 Subroutine Access

    Thanks Guess. I confirm MCP (Main Control Program) is the solution if there are no JSR commands. In order to get to MCP double click on S2 and then go in the MCP Tab. Most of the time it will be Ladder 2 selected and then JSR will be done in Ladder 2 to call the other subroutine but you can put all Ladder Subroutines number in MCP.
  17. installing AL-PCS/WIN

    very odd, has now seemed to install ok,   I did set compatibility to win7, and run as admin, (although I sure I had already tried this yesterday) strange thing is, I gave up from last try, everything disappeared again, then must have been at least 15 mins later, the next install progress screen popped up, and I was able to complete install....odd
  18. That looks correct as long as your wave generator has a sinking output.
  19. Thanks for the video it helps.  Base on the video explanation, i came out with the schematic attached below, please kindly go through it. and see if i did it the right way.  thanks wiring diagram for AB 1400 & square wave generator.pdf

    I was checked there no write protect switch. i used Mitsubishi rs 232 to rs 422 converter attach with usb to serial port. simulation, compare and read easily but can't load program, can't clear memory. i am using gxdev 8.2 version.   
  21. installing AL-PCS/WIN

    Maybe run the setup.exe  as Administrator that sometimes helps
  22. can anyone help me? please tell me how to interface A172SENC motion control, like what kind of software and hardware that i need to program it
  23. installing AL-PCS/WIN

    thanks for all replies,    I will retry compatibility mode for win 7, pretty sure I tried all modes, including 95/98   if you look online, the specs I have seen, state it should run on windows 10 maybe there is something partially blocking install on my PC, I get the splash screen, the first progress bar, then everything disappears off screen, nothing...
  24. A series Motion Control

    @katmandoo tortoise hello sir,, i have the same problem with @Delbert..  i have program with extension .cnf and .prj but can open the program cz i dont have the software SW3RNC-GSVE ,, i use V22 for the OS. can you share the program ?
  25. installing AL-PCS/WIN

    I have V2.70 running on my windows 10 also without any problems. But If you do I would try to tun it in compatibility mode for windows 7
  26. FX5U and SMC EX260 built in ethernet

    Have you already bought the SMC unit. you can get one with CC-Link which would be easiest. The SMC.....SEN version is for Ethernet IP. so you will need to get an FX5-ENET/IP module
  27. Good day, I am new in mitsubishi and have a question about how build built in ethernet communication on fx5u fw 1.050 gx3 1.047 with smc ex260 sen1, where i need send 2 bytes and receive 4 bytes can u help me? I try to send data with this format 2#0000000100000001 and send by Ethernet Active Tcp connection library where I have added the external device configuration ip and port SMC EX260 SEN1, I think I needed use a CIP protocol and port 44818 or Ethernet/ip, maybe I need add a ENET module to use this communication between my devices? Thanks a lot for answers
