  1. Alarm history in NB Designer

    Read this post, particularly my response to his initial question: http://forums.mrplc.com/index.php?/topic/26396-nb-alarm-and-event-settings-display-etc/#comment-126518
  2. Sending alarms with NA panel

    @Mr.Moe I just sent an email to your gmail account from my NJ.  Using the settings above.  
  3. Sending alarms with NA panel

    I was thinking about this some more today and I realized why I could not send email outside of my house yesterday.  Just because my NJ cannot use SSL, does not mean that my new email server cannot do SSL.  So, I configured my hmailserver email server to relay the email through gmail.  Using SSL allows the server to use port 465 (not blocked by my ISP).  You just need to configure the delivery of e-mail tab as shown below and then you can send email from the NJ, through hmailserver to gmail's server and then on to the final destination.    
  4. Sending alarms with NA panel

    I was able to get this to work with a local email server, but my ISP blocks port 25, so I cannot send it outside of my house.  I can show you what I did and see if that helps. I downloaded hmailserver, which is a simple and free email server.   I setup a domain that is set to default settings except for the name of the domain itself. I created two accounts, one called mike@mikewalsh.net and one called test@mikewalsh.net and made up some simple passwords for them   I left all other account settings at default.   Under Settings, Protocols, SMTP, then on the delivery of mail tab, I was sure to set the local host name to localhost (that just points the server to my PC). I made sure to hit save and then closed out of the administration tool. Then, In my email client, I set up both accounts like this: Lastly, my ladder looked like this (note, changed the timeout to 20 (2.0 s): And the email that was received looked like this:
  5. @strantor_ Wow!  That is quite the process.  Thank you for coming back and sharing your efforts with us so that no one else has to go figure this out!  
  6. Thanks @Jay Anthony!  I hope that all is well!
  7. Unfortunately, you are right in your assessment of the issue.  I have documented a slightly painful process to be able to change the communication method for an NB project.  It should work the same for changing the model number.  Here is the document: Changing NB Communication Method POC.pdf So, you should be able to continue with development and testing with the CP1H and then use the document to change it to match your CJ2M. Good luck!

    @Gotyaa444: The website was updated a while back and some of the attachments were removed.  They need to be repaired one by one as they are found.  I have repaired the post.  
  9. Compare not working

    IO_Rack is correct, you do not need to use a compare for this, however, if you want us to look and see why it is not working (for educational purposes), post the program and we will look.  It is difficult to tell from this picture.    As IO_Rack also mentioned, the counter counts down from the setpoint to 0 and when it is done, it turns on the done bit.  If you are trying to count up, you will need to use the increment instruction - ++.    
  10. Why TXD(236) doesn't work, but RXD(235) works

    Tell Renan that I said hi.  I believe that we have met before.  If it is the same person, his nickname is Mountain.  
  11. TXD & RXD with CQM1H SCB41 W/232 ASCII

    It is very much the same process, but there will be a node number in the serial string somewhere.  It depends upon the protocol.      
  12. TXD & RXD with CQM1H SCB41 W/232 ASCII

    You have the END Code set to 256 bytes.  Therefore, it will not receive a message and put it into the PLC until you send 256 characters.  Set the END Code to CR LF and make sure that Hyperterminal is set to include LF with CR and you will see whatever you have typed into the PLC if you change the receive size in your RXD command to match.  There is also an A register that will tell you how may bytes are in the buffer to be received).  I don't see a receive command, you will need one to pull the data into the PLC from the serial buffer.   This is code from a CP1L, but is a good solution, just change your end code, download the settings, cycle power and go:    
  13. How to break into PLC that is password protected.

    As @BobB mentioned, the customer needs to be able to prove that they own the code in the controller.  If they can prove that and sign documents stating that, then Omron may choose to break the password for the PLC.   However, this topic will NOT be discussed further on this site.
