  1. Past Hour

    One of the things that annoys me the most about AB is their paid support system. If you don't have a contract with them, I think your best next step is to go to your local distributor. They're supposed to have experts on staff to help with different products. Our distributor has been very helpful with issues we've had, in some cases better than AB.

    Thanks Joe, yes, I saw that document, it doesn't go into the detail I need.  I've been unable to access the AB support page since I began this project a month ago.

  5. Difference between RUN and MONITOR modes

    Monitor mode allows for some memory areas to be monitored from outside commands.  Monitor mode allows you to force bits on and off and to set values in memory addresses using CX-Programmer (see my first note).  I will also set the PLCs to power up in monitor as a rule of thumb.

  10. How to connect omron CP1E with modbus RTU

    You should use A641.00 to A641.02 that belong to Optional Serial Port If you use A640.00 to A640.02 It is belong to Built-in RS-232 Port. Maybe you should check program as below and clear PLC Memory (There are some random data on D1300 - D1400) and download project again. modbus coba coba euy V 3.cxp

  22. Mitsubishi FX5U user web interface

    Actually The webserver ia available for both iQ-R and iQ-F series. What do you need to know. You can use the same sample from the iQ-R in the iQ-F.  Just use any HTML editor like from microsoft expression web or something  and just add the java script for the example.
  23. Difference between RUN and MONITOR modes

    Monitor mode allows online program changes - run does not. I start all mine in monitor mode anyway.
  24. Hello guys. I have just a basic question. What is actually  the difference between Run and Monitor mode of the PLC? I know that when I want to change the mode I get a message informing me that the mode will be changed and I should make sure it's safe. But what an "unsafe" situation might happen? I've changed the mode many times when I needed to do online changes or to force a bit and never had any problems with the running machinery. In the manual I've found many times a note that " When the operating mode is changed between PROGRAM or MONITOR mode and RUN mode" some memory areas will be cleared but again, I've never experienced any strange behavior of the machinery. Last thing. If I leave the PLC in Monitor mode permanently (instead of returning back to Run mode) is there any downside?
