  2. Kinetix 5500 - Fault <Excessive Velocity Error>

    Hi Jobbe9000 Thank you so much for the replies. I really appreciate your help and your opinion, will take some action based on your suggestive idea. 
  3. Index Tag Names though AOI

    I have (176) workstations with local controls to each. Each has (2) photo eyes, a solenoid, and an MDR zone control. Therefore I have (176) of one photo eye, (176) of the other, and so on. My tags are all labeled with respect to the workstation. E.g. "solWorkstation1". My question is, is there a way I can use the same AOI in a loop and index the workstation number like I could if these numeric values "xx1" were elements in an array such as "xxx[1]" becoming "xxx[indexer]?
  4. Error Clearing FX2n48MT

    Hi Inntele, Thanks for your input, I checked those m contacts all zero and all registers read normal. I guess I will eventually find out the cause. Reference Mitsubishi manual JY992D66301H  aka FX2 hardware manual.

  6. Error Clearing FX2n48MT

    If to say about error led, I'd check the battery status (M8005 and M8006 special merkers) and M8004/D8004.

    Hello all I have a an old TCP HMI Model HMIWD100A2P  I am trying to figure out if there is any software out there to back it up and look towards migration.
  8. CC-Link IE + C#

    kaare_t hit the nail on the head.  Yes, we are an OEM of a combination weighing machine.  We already have 30+ machines out there which a very developed controller.  The controller is also an all in one PC, so we can't add a PCI board.  Plus the cost couldn't be justified for one servo motor that doesn't have to do anything particularly special.  The servo will be used for a starwheel indexing system and possibly in another application, the indexing or tracking of pockets on a conveyor belt.
  9. Need to Origin a Stepper Motor

    There are many ways to origin your stepper. What method are you attempting? What are your operands in your ORG(889) instruction?
  10. The expansion backplanes have a slot for the power supply only (No CPU slot).   There are extra connections on the expansion backplanes to connect the cable to the CPU backplane and additional expansion backplanes.  See the drawing below:
  11. Cpu position in rack ?

    The CPU can only go in one position on the backplane.  There is just one place where it will connect physically.  Likewise, the power supply will only plug into one slot.  Moving the I/O modules around will change what addresses they are using though.  
  12. Sync PLC Clock slow by 3s

    I synced the PLC clock in a Q03UDECPU to my PC. It updated in the software and then I executed it (synced the PLC to it). However, when I close the settings and go back, the clock is slow by 3 seconds consistently. Why is this? How can I accurately sync the PLC clock to my PC with exact seconds? Anyone else experience this or is this even possible? Another way I know the PLC clock is 3s slow is because I set up a SNTP server from the PLC which the GOT looks at. Again the GOT clock is 3 seconds delayed from my PC. This brings me to another point, in which I turn on the SM1028 bit (clock read request), but nothing turns on in SD1025 to SD1028 as the manual says it should. What am I doing wrong that I can't read the PLC clock into registers?  
  13. Point io power consumption calculator

    Rockwell's Integrated Automation Builder should do that for you. It's part of their product selection toolbox download:
  14. Is there a tool to calculate the power consumption of a point io rack for given modules, or do I need to make my own?   Thanks in advance.

    This worked...thanks  
  16. Panelview Plus 600 problem

    Rebuild the project from scratch, I'm afraid.
  17. CC-Link IE + C#

    @kaare_t The problem is that most Ethernet ports only support 100Mbps for CC Link IE Field you needs a 1Gbps. Besides that if you could than it would not be certified by the CLPA.  The solution would be to use the PCI boards for CC-Link IE Field. As for the application of @Ericw the solution could also be to exchange to a servo Controller board in the PC or a PLC platform so the existing program can be reused.
  18. Error Clearing FX2n48MT

    Yes the unit may be faulty but apart from the output problem it works fine. Ok I have been reading the manual and going through M points and D registers and can still find no indication of error. However the physical manifestation appeared last night and here is what happens. I attempt to use logic to switch outputs on and everything  is fine until I try to exceed Y7. I can switch outputs Y10 to Y17 or Y20 to Y27 but only any given 8 outputs at one time. Do you know the correct parameter settings for this model? This is not my first time with a PLC I have a few of them and wrote my first PLC program in 1986 (Instruction code).
  19. I've never used MC Works, but how are you planning on communicating? USB? Ethernet? Serial?
  20. CC-Link IE + C#

    @Gambit: My guess is that the topic starter builds machines/systems and delivers more than just one. That's why $1000 makes a different if you have 10 or 100 systems... I agree fully that Mitsubishi has great quality however adding another controller to an existing controller seems a bit too much "addon" to me when the topic starter clearly wishes to have an "embedded-like" system. I would rather recommend the topic starter to look into a fullblown PLC system for their application, and remove their existing controller. But then again, we don't know anything about what the controller is used for, so it's a bit hard to tell... @Ericw: Do you have the possibility to tell us more about your application and system-solution? Not that it's very important at this point, it would just be interesting to know... Btw, @Gambit: Do you know if MX Components supports CCLinkIE Field directly via an Ethernet port?

  22. What You Need to about PLC and the PLC Programming Languages

    Basics of PLC you should know, before going for the advanced concepts. Not knowing even the basics of PLC? Here is your chance to know the basics as we explore them for you. Once you get acquainted with the basics, eventually you can go for the advanced part. To explain it in a simple manner, a PLC happens to be a solid-state, programmable gadget that essays an important part in the control, monitoring and the automation of industrial resources. A PLC is capable to receive inputs and deliver outputs similar to a PC. A microprocessor is placed in the center that does computations depending on the programmed code. PLCs serve as an electrical interface for the mechanical parts and support networking as a part of big industrial environments. Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) have existed for more than 50 years now and have set up themselves as the favored hardware for industrial automation. A number of competitors have traveled the path in the form of PCs, micro-controllers etc. However, none have possessed the capacity to dent PLC’s reputation. History: The first ever PLC entered into the industrial environment in the 1960s and happened to be a variant of the widely utilized programmable controller. The requirement for reliable and adaptable control over relays in a space-canny way set off the development of PLCs. Not before long, PLCs took over Programmable Controllers, as they permitted reprogramming and re-usability as a part of the ladder logic. PLCs come in different sizes, and for the most part occupy lesser space contrasted with rest of the industrial equipment. The PLC chassis could be open or shut, contingent upon the hardware specifications while every single electronic component is either mounted on PCBs or DIN rails. Functionality: Programmable Logic Controllers function on the processing principle of scanning cycles. The methodology has stayed virtually unchanged for all PLCs. As special peripherals or hardware is included, the necessity for scanning cycles increases. Here’s an approach to comprehend the scanning cycles. Initially, the software scans the I/O hardware modules, post power-up. The data contents are exchanged to the input’s image table while the data from the output table is sent to the output module. The software program is eventually scanned, and processed as per the code. Outputs get reflected in the output table, post processing, and the related peripheral gadget (normally relay) is empowered. The extent of a PLC relies upon its I/O ability. The number of I/O points necessary are contrived by the System Engineer, contingent upon the load necessities. When the control machinery increases, additional I/O points would be needed which can be offered through expansion cards. Sections of PLC: All PLCs comprise of four sections, each of them can be further divided into subsections. Power Supply Section CPU Module Processor section Memory section Program Software Section I/O Section Those were the basics of PLC which you need to know, when you get started with it. Once you get well acquainted with them, you can move on and go for the advanced concepts of the same

  24. CC-Link IE + C#

     If you're looking for the right Servo supplier Mitsubishi is the best buy as they are used by many CNC machine builders which is a good indication of their capabilities  You have probably seen all of the MR-J4 features and that the encoder does over 4 million pulses per rev. As for your application why would you not just use an FX5U PLC in between with an SSCNET module to the amplifiers in between. This way you have the full features of the servo and the FX5 has a modbus tcp/ip server, datalogger and webserver.   Yes, The FX5 PLC plus SSCNET will be an additional cost (around $1000) but it will simplify your system and you have this set-up and running much faster & better.  

    You should change function code to 03 to read data register D1300 -> Slave Address (#01)D1301 -> Function Code (#06)D1302 -> Communication Data Bytes (#04)D1303 -> Start AddressD1304 -> Number of registers read

    Finally i can create write multiple register, i just follow the pdf you give me. I want ask, how to read data (read input register and read holding register) real time or in data memory always display the real time data? 

    @asilva2094 You need to change CPU to CP1L or CP1H then combine with CP1W-CIF11/CIF12 to use Modbus Slave after that please use OMRON function blocks as shown below to commnuicate with Modbus RTU Slave.
