  7. logix designer Installing V29 when 31 is installed

    I've never had trouble installing an older version after installing a newer one but I can see where RSLinx wouldn't install if a newer version is already there. Can you skip that step or un-check RSLinx in the earlier stages of the install? I know on some of the older versions you could select "Custom" instead of "typical" or "full" and select which components to install or not. I guess it uses RSLinx Enterprise for the HMI software that's built in now. In the past, it never installed RSLinx Enterprise, only RSLinx Classic.

    You can't go online but you can test the screen from with FTView Studio. It's kind of tricky if you haven't done it before, but if you can connect your PC to the same network the PLC and HMI are on, it's a lot easier. First, set your "design" shortcut to match your "runtime" shortcut if you're on the same network. If you have to take a different communications route to get to the PLC from your PC as the route the HMI will use, make the "design" shortcut match the route your PC takes. Leave the runtime shortcut alone. In the project explorer, expand "RSLinx Enterprise" and open "Communication Setup". There will be 2 tabs: "Design (Local)" and "Runtime (Target). Click on the "Design" tab and set that up by adding nodes as necessary to build the path to the PLC processor. Leave the Runtime tab alone! Once finished, click "OK". Second, go to the screen you want a screenshot of and use the play and stop buttons on the toolbar to test that display: Take your screenshot. If it doesn't work, make sure you can ping the PLC and that your design path in the communication setup is correct.
  9. Errors that appears when i connect via serial port

    Wow, I am surprised.....must not really be getting those errors on the processor, just an incorrect notification.
  10. panelviewplus newbie

    Can i go online to panelview plus like i go on line to plc with rslogix? How do it do it? There're a recipe screens on pvp and like to get screen shots of those. Thanks
  11. I have a plc program that was made in Logix designer V29.  I had logix designer V28 on my computer, so I figured I'd updgrade straight to 31.  Usually it lets me choose which versions to install (if I recall, its been a while).  Anyways, I installed V31, went to open the program, and I cannot load it as I don't have V29 loaded.  I instead tried installing V29, but I am unable to install it because I have a newer version.  I tried uninstalling V31 and then installing V29, but I was still unsuccessful.  It errors at RSLinx Enterprise yet.    Anyone know the work-around?   Thanks,

    You will need screenshots to fully express your situation.  I suspect your issue is with the scripting of register addresses; your SLC-500 PLC name is what is shown in RSLinx and that is what will be [shortcut] in RSView ME. For migrating a PV550 to a PV700, if the previous PV550 HMI application required operators to acknowledge all alarms (otherwise how would the alarms go away), the new PV700 application should do the same.  Otherwise you will be modifying the behavior of the machine.  
  13. Hi, Maybe you could make a FB with a loop. Here is an example to reset an array of bool. You just need and index and a bool as the conditon of the reset. JC

  16. communicate with PLC melsec Q (mitsubishi)

    Dear PLC_guy_in_Yokohama, i search in website with address "mitsubishi.automation",  and i saw module QJ71EIP71 (see link), and it's function is ethernet IP communication but i can not see EDS file of that module to add to RSlogix5000 to config parameter  of data communicate, also IP address of module to communicate. https://eu3a.mitsubishielectric.com/fa/en/mymitsubishi/download_manager?id=12484  thanks you,

  19. connecting 4 cpm2a in one pc

    Hello, Your case might be similar to my case. but I use CJ1M with RS232 serial port. First thing I did was converting the serial to ethernet using Serial to ethernet converter (in my case it is MOXA 5110A RS232) . After that I connected all Ethernet ports to a switch then one cable from the switch to the PC. Then, configure the Moxa converter itself to allow communication between the PC and the PLC.Then using the nport drive manager software i was able to create a virtual com port that the PLC program (CX-P or CX-S) can recognize.
  20. Hello Mr Michael, I Will Check if there's some kind of problem with the grounding. Thank you for you time and help sir.
  21. Well, when i checked the dipswitch it was already off,  The default serial port setting was as attached, I changed the settings as you said. At first it did some uploading errors, but then it worked and the errors disappeared. But now I have noticed that the PLC is talking longer to connect and alot of times it fails to upload. But when it uploads and works everything works great, and no errors appear. It is just confusing you see. Thank you again for your time and help sir.
  22. Errors that appears when i connect via serial port

    My first thought is some kind of grounding / potential issue on the computer's comm port. or there could be some kind of ground issues with the PLC.  That is what I would check.  Settings and dip switch settings would not cause the errors that you are seeing.  
  23. Errors that appears when i connect via serial port

    Glad to help. My best guess is that with dipswitch 5 ON the default setting of the Serial comm. port is HostLink, 9600 Baud, 1,7,2,E but CX-Programmer by default uses Toolbus at 115200 Baud, 1,7,2,E. This conflict possibly caused the Sync/Async Communications in the Peripheral Service to take too long to execute and faulted the PLC. If anyone else has a better reason please chime in.

  26. PLC that can hold its memory

    https://www.automationdirect.com/do-more/brx/index The BRX PLC has a built in Micro SD card slot. This can be used to store your program. Upon startup you can instruct the PLC to load the program from the Micro SD card. The Do-More will read the DirectLogic program and convert. https://www.automationdirect.com/do-more/brx/software/directlogic-migration Regards, Garry
  27. Hello, Thank you so much sir, That actually worked and the errors disappeared. I really appreciate it. But if I may ask, would you ( if you have time of course) explain to me what was that problem ? was the data transfer rate from the PLC to the PC slow so it resulted in some kind of communication error ? Again, Thank you sir. I really appreciate it. Have a good day.
  28. PLC that can hold its memory

    The new AB CompactLogix and ControlLogix processors do not require batteries. The S7-300 series of Siemens processors also don't use batteries. I don't know about their newer 1500 processors but I would be shocked if they need batteries. Since you're already using DirctLogic controllers, I doubt that any of those are in your price range. AB also makes their MicroLogix 800 series that (I'm pretty sure) doesn't use batteries either and is probably price comparable and uses free software (CCW). Their PanelView 800 line goes with the MicroLogix 800 processors and is also programmed with CCW. Full disclosure: I have only used CCW when I had no choice and I'm not a fan of the software, though it may have improved since I tested it a few years ago. In your situation, it may make sense. You can download the software and install it (I would strongly recommend using a virtual machine) to tinker and see what it does and if you think it will work for you.

    You can change the Program Check Options under the PLC menu.
