  1. Morning, You need PL7-3 software included in XTEL software package. This software runs under OS/2. A VM can be used without any problem even with a laptop without com port. In this case you have to use an usb-serial converter as com1. To connect the plc you need and RS232-Current loop converter, idealy a Westermo MA21 converter which was the one used by telemecanique. However you can use any converters like the one in the attached picture. JC
  2. TSX 17 Failure

    Morning, The Serie 7 Telemecanique plcs was composed of TSX17, TSX27, 47, 67, 87 an 107. The connection cable needed for a 17 is a RS232 to RS485 converter. Standard converter may be used. All the others need a RS232 to current loop converters. In the software there was PL7-2 for TSX 17, 27 and some 47 and PL7-3 for others 47, TSX67, 87 and 107. PL7-2 and PL7-3 existed in DOS and OS/2 version. Under OS/2 these software were included in a pack called XTEL. Forget the DOS version it's useless. I can give you a Virtual image including XTEL and PL7-2. I can give you as well the drawing of the cable. Now if you feel you can manage with it let me know by pm. JC
  3. TSX 17 Failure

    Hi, If you realy have an eeprom cartrdige (located near the language PL7-2 cartridge) you have the program inside, so you just have to swap it into a new plc and that's all. Of course it could be interresting in addition to connect the plc to upload the program to have a backup on pc.   JC
  4. Hi, TSX is a generic name and means nothing, what is the reference of your plcs ? JC
  5. Hi, You can try here : if it doesn't work, let me know by pm, I have others versions. JC
  6. Plc7-3

    Hi, Are you talking of a TSX 47 plc from Telemecanique programmed in PL7-3 ? If so there's no software that could be used in any Windows version. You must use PL7-3 software either under DOS or OS/2. An other alternative is to use a T407 console with the PL7-3 langage cartridge but it could be difficult to find one. JC
  7. 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
  8. Hi, 1) Forget Unity, your processor is PL7-Pro only. For Unity only processors reference that ended by a 4 (ie TSX572624) can be programmed with unity. 2) XIP driver is installed when you install PL7-Pro. XIP Driver is provided as well on the cd with PL7-Pro. To configure XIP driver have a look here : Sorry it's in french, I didn't find something in english. But it's not so complicated. Anyway a quicker solution will be to find an RS485 cable to connect the TER plug, it's easier than in Ethernet with these processors. JC
  9. Error OBs

    You're right, some Schneider plcs system bits could be used to "emulate" some OB, but in this particular case it's not really interesting. With a Siemens Step7 Plc, if you address a memory area that doesn't exist, your plc will stop. If you add OB121 (that is not present by default when you create your project) it will not. It's really a totally different philosophy between Siemens and Schneider and it's not a good idea to try to do with a Schneider plc what you did with a Siemens. JC
  10. Error OBs

    Hi, OB means organization Block, it can't be compared with Schneider DFB. OB121 and OB122 are specials organization blocks that can be used to avoid to stop the processor when a programming error occurs (OB121) or I.O error (OB122). So don't look at this on Schneider Plcs, they don't exist so you don't need it :) JC  
  11. Question about chip PLC I never used it myself but it's cheap... JC
  12. SUCOS PS316 connection issue

    Hi, I worked with PS316 several years ago and if I remember well I had to use a software from Kithara to use the com port under Windows XP ( This software was provided for free by Lauer. I don't remember very well how it worked but the fact is without this software I couldn't communicate with the PLC even with the protocoled original Klockner cable. Maybe you could look at it. JC
  13. Hi, I Checked on my side and you can use XBTL-900 too, it's a software designed for Windows 3.11 so it's a little bit more easy to use it than the DOS (100, 400) versions. Be aware that upload/download to the XBT are not easy cause there's only one com port and most of the time you have to change the port mode to RS232 instead of the RS485 used for the link to the PLC, this changes has to be made directly on the panel. JC
  14. Hi, If I remember well you need XBTL-900 that run under windows. Maybe you could use XBTL-400 or 100 but these ones are DOS only. The cable is a serial one, probably not a standard cable. I should have the drawing somewhere. Anyway this panel is completely osbolete and you should replace it as soon as possible.

  15. Hello, P57104 processor are Unity processors, they will be sold until 2026. If necessary the program can be easily adapted to a M340 or a M580 if the program is bigger. JC
