  1. RTU Modbus With CJ2M PLC and 3G3RX Drives on RS485

  2. CJ2M-CPU35 and LS drives

  3. CX-One Programmer Start up error_OCX

    I would try using the CX-One remover utility.  It is in the Utility folder of your CX-One installation disk.  Then reinstall.  Make sure to run as administrator when you run the install.
  4. Hi Micheal:



    Any tips on how to deal with the EDS file from Beckhoff ?


  5. Omron Force Bit Cancel via Fins

    Ah, yes.  I did not read closely enough.
  6. Newbie - Help. on Omron Sysmac S6

    @jpen_110  Programs are different from machine to machine, so sample code may not help.  Also, the code is not attached.
  7. Manual for 3F88L-130/132 Cam Positioner

    Here is the manual link again, it is not working above: http://forums.mrplc.com/index.php?/files/file/354-3f88l-132o002-cam-positioner/
  8. Omron Force Bit Cancel via Fins

    @Jay Anthony, he doesn't want to use CX-Programmer or a laptop at all.  He is looking for a way to do it from the HMI.
  9. Total Power On Time in auto mode

    Yes, your code does not look like it would work.   Try this: Make sure to set the TotalSeconds variable as retained: This will work and you will get this: To get your time in years you will have to do this: AutoTimeDateStruct.Year - 1970 To get the time in months, you will have to do this: AutoTimeDateStruct.month - 1 To get the time in days, you will have to do this:  AutoTimeDateStruct.day - 1 The other variables can be used without any math. 
  10. Omron Force Bit Cancel via Fins

    @xcanowarx, that is what I meant by this statement in my original post.  The state of the bit will remain in the same state that it was forced to unless the program changes it or it is an input point.   There is not really a way around this. Unless you know what bit is forced.  if you know what bit is forced, you can force it off using a 2301 command to both force the bit off and then cancel the force.  
  11. Add sensor detection inside plc omron

    You will need to post much more information before anyone can help. What kind of PLC?   What are you trying to do? What kind of sensor?  (PNP or NPN) What input module?  Or is it an input built into the PLC? Attach your PLC program. There will then likely be more questions after you have answered these questions.

    Thanks!  I assumed (incorrectly) that if it would not let me modify the file that it also would not let me rename it.
  13. Total Power On Time in auto mode

    You can use the DTToDateStruct function to break each part of the DT variable out into integers and then display the ones that you want on the HMI individually.

    Nice @Jay Anthony!  I could not find anything on FINS Command in script....Thanks!   I am having trouble modifying the MacroINS.def file as it says that I don't have permission. I have tried to change folder Read Only settings and other settings to no avail.
  15. Omron Force Bit Cancel via Fins

    I don't believe the NS can issue the FINS command, but you can certainly do it in the PLC and use the HMI to trigger the code.  See below: Note that this just cancels forces, if the ladder (or if it is an input) does not affect the bit in question, it will maintain the same state.
