  1. Vipa CPU 315SB-2AG12

    Has anyone experience connecting to a Vipa  315SB 2AG12 CPU with Simatic Manager? I have tried the Siemens USB PC adaptor and cannot connect - any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.  
  2. TIA TP1500

    Normally ## will appear if there is no communication OR the configured field is not long enough to display the variable. (ie the field is configured for 3 "places" but the value is 4 "places" long)
  3. Hundreds of Discrete Alarms - Simplest method?

    I had the same problem recently swapping from Omron to S7 - still fresh in my mind.
  4. Hundreds of Discrete Alarms - Simplest method?

    Over writting of address !!! I think you mean -  Alarm Word 1 = MW100 Alarm Word 2 = MW 102 Alarm Word 3 = MW104 Or use a Data Block.
  5. Programming Port

    Thank you kraykov  - these adaptors look ideal. I was thinking about "portable adaptors" that I could just put in the tool case and use if required (temporarily)
  6. Programming Port

    Recently went to a site where the HMI was connected to the programming port of the FX PLC. Had to keep disconnecting the HMI to connect the SC 09 cable from the laptop. Are there any port duplicators (or similar) to be able to connect both the HMI and laptop at the same time. (HMI was not Mitsi and had no "pass through")

  8. SR FLIP FLOPS

    Make sure MB0 is not used by the "clock" memory. In the PLCSIM window show the status of MB0
  9. SR FLIP FLOPS

    One reason can be the use of the same address more than once or using a byte or word. But without more details it is impossible to help, a screen shot would be useful
  10. Siemens Basic Panels (DP)

    Has anyone used a Siemens Basic panel connected to a FX2 PLC using RS422/RS485 ? If so what are the connections required on the interface cable? Thanks in advance.
