  1. RSView32

    How about this? The reject in nest tag having an address like B53:13 so this expression is looking for Bit 7 to be = to 1 64 32 16 8 4 2 1 Weight 6 5 4 3 2 1 0 Bit

    We use Microsoft Visio - easy to create libraries - good if you just want to make a record of new circuits or circuit modifications.

  5. 3-Phase Transformer Loading

    Three Phase KVA =Volts x Amps x 1.73 /1000 480x900x1.73/1000 Answer = 747 KVA Amps = 3 Phase KVA x 1000 /Volts x 1.73 Answer = 903 Amps Total
  6. Alternatives to RsLogix5000/CompactLogic

    I am frustrated with Rockwell and their draconian customer support. That says it all! There are many good things about AB systems, but when you work with them you almost get the feeling that they went out of their way to make it difficult and over-complicated, so that you are forced to use their costly customer support.
  7. High Speed Machinery

    How about using one of these Turck connectors when you need PNP/NPN conversion and substituting compatible inline straight-through connectors when you don't need the conversion.
  8. PANELVIEW 600 SCREEN LIST

    How about creating a main menu with all the screen selections and each selected screen has a return to menu button?
  9. AB SLC500 HMI ALARM

    Normally, I don't like to post information like this because it shows how stupid someone can be even after years of experience programming. However, if I can save anyone else from wasting time on a project like we did, then I don't mind. To make a long story short, we were programming alarm banners for a SLC500 system (which I hadn't done for years) and couldn't get them to work at all. The fact that they didn't display in any way should have been a clue, but no. After hours of changing the alarm setup and trying this and that, I accidentally stumbled upon a section in the help file under startup that explains that you must tick the alarms tick box so that on startup the HMI will display alarms. After doing this, they worked beautifully ! - duhhhhhhhhhhhh!
  10. File Name: Pinstamp File Submitter: neilr216 File Submitted: 29 May 2009 File Category: PLC Sample Code TASK: Do more with less. Write PLC code for an ancient Telesis pinstamp printer from the early 1990's, replacing a flaky ink jet printer that never worked properly Existing control system is an AB SLC500 PLC controlling a sixteen station assembly line. An AB basic module was used to communicate to the ink jet. Our options were: 1) Modify basic module code to suit ancient pinstamp 2) Find another way of doing it since we were in a hurry and didn't have enough experience with the AB system to do it in time. We opted to take an existing OMRON CQM1 PLC that we had gathering dust in the corner, and write code for the pinstamp Our part model and reject codes would be sent from the AB discretely as binary inputs to the CQM1 Using the CQM1 RS-232 port, the Telesis functions strictly as a printer with no confirmation signals sent back to the CQM1 Having installed a clock module in the CQM1 we were able to extract the Julian day and year and print it along with the model # and reject code . Not exactly the finest example of modern technology, but it works. Who said that OMRON and AB can't get along! P.S. - DM memory saved in project! Click here to download this file

  12. NEED HELP ! SLC504/DH+

    Ken, You've answered my question about the DH+ - thanks very much for that. As for the controller, I am going to dig into it further and check out what you have suggested. Thanks again, neilr216
  13. NEED HELP ! SLC504/DH+

    Thanks for your quick response, Question #1] Sorry for not providing all the necessary information. The program that I downloaded to the SLC504 is an existing program that has been running for a few years. When converted,(for the SLC504) I ran the program verification to ensure that it is OK. So I don't believe it's the code. I'm not at work right now, so I guessed at the the SLC504 OS number, but regardless, it is a SLC504 with a DH+ port. (I can verify the OS # on Monday) What really get's me is that is that I can be online with a comparing program on the 504 in run mode and no faults but coils that should be energized are not energized. Could this be some incompatability with the backplane? (Guessing) Question #2] From memory I believe that the Panelview is a 2711-K5A8. It has an RS232 port and a DH+ port. I set the panelview as Node 2 57.6kb and the PLC channel 1 for DH+ 57.6kb node 1 What I need to know is whether I require the 150 ohm resistor at both ends or just one end? Thanks, neilr216
  14. NEED HELP ! SLC504/DH+

    Limited experience with SLC/Panelview and have been unable to retrieve support information from Rockwell. 1] Adding a PV500 Panelview with DH+ to an existing control system. Original PLC processor was a SLC503 OS302C and substituted a SLC504 OS402C with DH+ port Installed processor on backplane, downloaded program - no faults indicated - in run mode - but no coil on any rung is energizing - this includes module outputs. Does anyone know what the problem(s) could be? 2] Assuming that the above problem can be solved and the processor starts working, I want to know if I need a 150 ohm terminating resistor on both the PLC DH+ end and the Panelview DH+ end? I have terminated the correct shielded cable to the correct terminals at both ends. Thanks, neilr216
