  1. Micrologix 1200 I/O error

    I very much appreciate your response. I have seen that somewhere, but my problem is that I had this unit working and set up correctly and my boss had gone out to train on site. So therefore, I don't know if he or the customer changed anything. But I will certainly have him check the dip switch settings....it's not possible to change the program without RSLogix right?
  2. Micrologix 1200 I/O error

    I am trying to troubleshoot a Micrologix 1200 error from afar....and am not having too much luck. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what could cause and 0189h error (I/O module error)? There is only the ML 1200 and an 1762-IF2OF2 module on the rack. Thanks in advance!
  3. RSLogix PID

    I am using RSLogix 5000 with a CompactLogix controller, but I am using the Mini edition of Logix and this version does not support Function Block programming. Therefore, I have to use the standard PID, since the PIDE is only available as a function block.
  4. RSLogix PID

    I am new to using the PID control in RSLogix and I am trying to switch over from using a PID controller to using the RSLogix PID control with a PLC. Can anyone give me some basics on what I should know before trying to do this? I have some specs we used on the PID controller, but there seems to be alot of information that doesn't quite match up between the two types of controllers. What information is actually necessary for the PID function to execute? Also, if there are more (any) details I can supply that would be useful, please let me know.

    Nevermind!! I figured it out = ) Thank you for your help!!!

    OK I figured that part out...Scale w/ parameters.....now two new questions....how do I get to the configuration data file to set my data format to 0-10V? And what is the process for uploading to the PLC? I am programming offline and when I try to go online to upload, it says something like it can't find my file and I hit create new file and it creates a blank file.

    OK I think i get what you are saying, but how do I scale the inputs in RSLogix? It's probably a very basic thing, but I'm not sure how to do it. Do I just multiply the input by 327.67 (the user will input 0-100)? Also, how do I address the particular output channel I am connected to? I'm on a very basic level with RSLogix, so any detailed instructions you could give would be greatly appreciated.

    I am communicating with the computer successfully now.....but now getting RSLogix 500 to do what I need it to do is a little foggy. I have the LCD stuff all set I think....but how do I get the information that the user inputs to output 0-10 volts on the I/O module? where do I move the user input to?

    I also do not have the PLC available to me as of about 5 minutes ago....it needs to be shipped with a unit to a show, so I guess I will have to work on getting the program done in RSLogix offline. That I am not sure about either. Again, what I need to do is take a user input from the LCD screen of 0-100% and output a linearly related voltage from 0-10V. I don't even know where to start. Once I get started, I should be able to get through it.

    Yes I did add the module into the I/O config, yes I have a real serial port and is the RSS file the RS Logix file? Might be a stupid question, but..... Right now I have the plc disconnected from my computer and it is still saying their is a fault. I powered down and reconnected power, and the fault is still there.
  11. Micrologix1100 & RSLogix 500 help

    OK an update finally....I FINALLY have RSLogix 500, but now I am having a problem getting the controller to communicate. I am using the 1747 PIC to interface to my computer...I keep getting a fault with error code 0189h...I looked up the code and it's an expansion I/O module error. I am using the 1762-IF2OF2 module. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Actually, it's not even a functional program.....It really was a training CD that just had demos on it...one day I'll get the actual software. I think the purchasing guy is looking into the cheapest way....
  13. Micrologix1100 & RSLogix 500 help

    I think the most likely option that my company will go for is number 3. I spoke to someone in purchasing and he said they were getting a training version. I told them it probably won't work, but they want to try before they get the full version. I will suggest getting a loaner copy. Thanks for the suggestions

    Well, as far as I know, I won't be doing a lot of PLC projects. I think they come along here and there. Yes this is a training unit for a college. I think my boss is looking into getting a one-time use version. I'm not really sure....

    Yes there is a safety valve on the flowmeter, so this is just a first step in regulation. I should actually up the max to 2 bars so there a little more flexibility, but no danger. I do not have the software yet....I have been playing around with RSLogix Starter, but there is only so much you can do without connecting to the PLC......I mean I have been able to see how it is set up, but that's about all. Do you know how much the software is?
