Cop_5069_DigIO.ACD
By jstolaruk
I'm programming my first project with the 5069 series and the digital input and output points are not available from the modules in a condensed form. In response to the thread "Copy data from/to a 5069 digital module", I'm uploading what I'll be using to condense inputs and outputs into single elements.
The file is in v29, enjoy and look forward to seeing any improvements that can be made. Especially in the OB AOIs.

Paletizer
By marckTony
hello guys, I've got a project and i am not too familiar with the allen bradley PLCs. So I hope you guys can help me with some ideas. we have a palitazer in our class we have to modify the PLC's program and add an extra fisical bottons, pause botton(red botton) and continue botton(green botton)
some times the operator needs to get inside to the enclosure WHILE THE MACHINE IS IN AUTO MODE and that is why we need the stop botton, so the operator can push it and "pause" the machine in any moment. all the outputs and inputs should stay in their current state until the operator press the start/continue bottom, after this the machine should be able to continue the routine.
here is some info about the palletizer

I dont know if this is possible or not I've been studyng the ladder, but I could find the solution.
I atached the PLC program in this file, thanks you very much
we got the PLC Allen Bradley SLC 5/03

Generic Sequencer
By OkiePC
This program is used to construct a sequencer with both input and output sequencing. The excel file is used to design the sequencer and includes features to update the user selectable files in a PLC using DDE. The PLC program sequences the inputs meaning that the input pattern for each step determines when the sequencer advances. A mask file is used for the inputs so that those that are irrelevant for a particular step can be ignored. This program does not use the classic sequencer instructions but uses MEQ and MOV instructions with indirect addressing instead. This leaves the end user more flexibility for controlling the step number.
Update r002: Added CLR instruction to the diagnostic word so that it does not hold "old data" as the sequencer advances.
EDIT: Added a beefed up version* for a real world machine (OK International 220 Servo bag inserter.) This program is not fully polished, I think the version here was after a few hours of refinement, and then stripping it down for speed. Today, I hit a full 17.5 bags per minute replacing logic that was running at 14.5 bags per minute. I ended up removing another input conditon for the seal bar timer, finding that it doesn't need to inhibit the opener from opening. I need to put in a discharge timer to keep the belt running long enough to send the last box out when finished even when the downstream is blocked, but continue to hold back the input clamps. it would be handy to cycle stop and have the machine empty itself too.
My main next goal on this particular machine, is to find out why the Ultra drive is not ready and homing quickly enough. I think my reset times are worse than the old logic! It seems I have to wait 5.5 seconds after the drive is ready before I can send it a successful home trigger. Today, I tried keeping logic power applied, and it did well until someone had to physically move this linear device and caused regeneration which triggered a nonrecoverable (must power cycle)... E41...So, I can't cheat with two black wires unless I add a shunt or an output contactor to dodge this hard fault. The extra effort will be an amazing improvement in recovery times when they have to open the doors. Now it take almost en seconds sometimes to reset and then reset. I must be sequencing the output logic to the Ultra drive incorrectly,.but I have altered it several times with little improvement. There will be more trial and error with the wiring and perhaps a DB to get this right.
*The 2nd file includes a rate calculation (boxes per minute in this case) as well as a programmable minimum and fault timeout for each step, multiple modes (auto, manual, single step, bag only).
Known limitations: I have realized the need to add a macro button to the xls sheet which would read back the PLC sequencer data and populate the bit fields in the sheets. I also still need to lock the references so you can move the raw data without hosing up the references on other sheets. For use asis, just don't drag the raw bit data or insert data, copying and pasting is fine to move steps forward and backward.
I also need to add to the excel sheet some columns for minimum time in step, and fault times so they can be edited from the workbook too.

TRUNCATE IEEE754 FLOAT
By TConnolly
Sometimes is necessary to truncate (remove the fraction) or round a floating point number that is outside the range of 32678 to +32767  making it impossible to use a MOV to an integer to make the conversion.
This is a program I worte that shows how to perform a truncation directly on the floating point number by copyng the 32 bit pattern of the float and then determining which bits of the mantissa to keep and clearing all the rest. It includes three subroutines two of which show two different methods of truncating the float and a third which rounds the float to the nearest whole float.
An understanding of the IEEE754 float format is helpful in understanding how this program works but its not necessary to use it.

20COMME Adapter Diagnostics
By Ken Roach
To rule out problems with data traffic to AC drives sometimes I ask a user to monitor the DPI Diagnostic Items in the 20COMME interface. These can be read using Drive Explorer Drive Executive or the 20COMME embedded Web page.
But the controller can also read these values with a little help from the 20COMME User Manual and some ladder logic for messaging.
The DPI Diagnostic Object is Class 0x99. The Diagnostic Item value is Attribute 1. But what's the Instance number ?
The Instance number for Adapter items begins at 0x4000 (16384) and I am interested in Items 49 through 55:
Item# Name Instance # Data Size (bytes)
49 EN Rx Overruns 16433 2
50 EN Packets Received 16434 4
51 EN Rx Errors 16435 4
52 EN Packets Sent 16436 4
53 EN Tx Errors 16437 4
54 Last TCP Reset 16438 2 (Read Only)
55 Missed IO Packets 16439 4
This ladder example just reads those 7 values repeatedly. I could be expanded to cover multiple drives.
These values are all reset when power is cycled which is why I'm interested in having the controller read them instead of standing around looking at the software monitor all day or trying to have people read them before they cycle power to the drive.

MSG_PF40_Example
By Ken Roach
This is an example of how to control (start/stop and speed reference) a PowerFlex 40 drive with 22COMME interface from an SLC5/05 controller over EtherNet/IP.
I do not recommend this practice and this file is provided without warranty or support for illustration purposes only.
DeviceNet is the preferred method to network AC drives to SLC500 controllers.

Temperature Trend Direction Flag
By Chris Elston
Operator wanted an easy way to tell if temperature was rising or falling in the tank. So without having to setup a full blown trend chart I came up with the "trend flag". If the flag or integer "Tank_1_Resin_Temp_Trend" was equal to "1" then the temperature is rising. If the flag is "0" then the temperature is falling. Easy fix with one rung.

Read Monitoring Parameters from E3 with SLC5/0x
By Ken Roach
RSLogix 500 routine to read the first 20 parameters from an E3/E3+ overload relay on DeviceNet with an SLC500 controller and 1747SDN. This example uses the new DeviceNet Explicit Message (DEM) instruction introduced with OS302 Series C FRN10 firmware.
The 21st parameter is also important but will almost always be part of the I/O connection so we're only reading 20 parameters which fits more snugly into a data array.
This routine only reads from one E3+ device at Node 3 on the network.

MicroLogix 1100 Ethernet to Cognex Message
By Chris Elston
Example of a couple of message instructions from the ML1100 to a Cognex 3400. I am not triggering the camera via ethernet. I started using the hardware trigger but then the customer wanted to add a "crack" inspection around a 360 degree object so I had to change my camera over to "continuous" trigger to be able to spin the part 360 degrees with a robot looking for a surface crack defect. So then I just message the crap out of the camera during this process.

SLC500 Measure Resistance
By panic mode
This was one of my early projects. I had to measure resistance in pretty
wide range on a delicate circuit (subject was changing value and in range
from few ohms to more than 1MOhm).
Normally I would have used something like RTD transducer but I just couldn't
find anything suitable for that range (every transducer I could find was
stopping at some 8 or 10k i needed at least 100x more).
The time was running out so I had to put something together and fast.
This is it. Initially this circuit was using dedicated regulated
low voltage power supply but since I had spare analog input(s)
I replaced that power supply with voltage divider (Panel had existing
24VDC power supply) and simply had to monitor that voltage because
it was not regulated any more (the 24VDC was regulated but the output
of divider was changing depending on test conditions).
Although we like to avoid custom designs this turned out to be so simple
cheap easy to use and worked extremly well. It is so small that there
was no need for PCB two resistors ware connected directly to terminals.
Accuracy off course could not match the 8digits of precission benchtop
multimeter but it was on pair with my multimeters which is more
than I could ask for. I didn't test it for significant ambient changes
(temperature and humitity).
There are several ways to do the math for this and in fact used aproach is
not the simplest or most efficient. But it is good example on how simple
DC circuits knowledge and very basic match can be used in practice.
R1 and R2 are not critical and don't need to be accurate either (just need to
produce voltage that fits selected range for used input card.
It is robust enough. In fact I was surprised to see results when R1/R2 ratio
was adjusted to produce only 1 Volt (what kind of ADC they have in their cards?).
