  1. Yeah I know. The controller that is attached to the NJ is a EIP SLAVE. The EIP registers are only INTs. It can process a REAL number across two INTS with no decimal point. It's the design of the EIP slave attached, so you write a 15000 in the two INTS and it interprets that as 150.00 mm of course using two INTS (like a double), you get larger that the 32,000 or 320.00 mm number...
  2. Here is how I solved it. FINALLY...took awhile to find what I wanted as far as function blocks.  
  3. Have not tried that, but might work better to use the CopyRealtoNum...looks alot better. Ok so now I have that in DINT format, how do I copy the 32-bit DINT into two consecutive INTs? The place the number is going is 16-bit memory so I need to split the DINT into two INTs.  
  4. Not being an expert in Omron yet...I have some code I am porting over from Allen Bradley 5000 to an NJ CPU. I have a rung in AB that I am using a COP function. What it's doing is a taking a 32-bit REAL (no decimal point) and copying that into two 16-bit INT registers. I can't seemed to find a way to do that in Omron.  I tried to a CopyRealtoDWORD then a DWORD to INT, but the double word to a single INT doesn't copy right.  Any suggestions?

  6. Ok, found a weird problem that I can't find any tech connect tickets or posts that solve my problem. Looking for other ideas. What I got going on is I am trying to register an EDS file. I use the EDS Wizard and I pick a single EDS file. It goes through the wizard just fine and acts like it completed the EDS file installation, but when I go to RS Linx or look for the AOP profile, it is not listed. I've tried to run the EDS Wizard as administrator. I've uninstalled RSLinx 4.10 and reinstalled. I've reboot my PC afterwards. I still can not get the EDS profile to show up.  It was WORKING at one time. I have a project where I setup the EDS AOP just fine, then something broke it, and now when I open an old project, it says this: <EDS not registered> Where at one time it was registered but now it's missing from the EDS library pick list and I can't reinstall it. I have tried using the AOP pick list in: RSLogix5000 version 20 Studio5000 version 32 Same...it's missing.
  7. Still working on the Allen Bradley conversion to Omron NJ project...has proven to be alot harder than I thought. This time I have an TAG which is an INT, that I want to map to the first 8 bits of an ARRAY of BOOLs TAG_INT (int) to TAG_ARRAY of 0-96 BOOL TAG_INT.0 = TAG_ARRAY[0] TAG_INT.1 = TAG_ARRAY[1] TAG_INT.2 = TAG_ARRAY[2] TAG_INT.3 = TAG_ARRAY[3] TAG_INT.4 = TAG_ARRAY[4] TAG_INT.5 = TAG_ARRAY[5] TAG_INT.6 = TAG_ARRAY[6] TAG_INT.7 = TAG_ARRAY[7] In Allen Bradley, you can refer to a INT by bit numbers with a DOT (then bit number), it seems Omron doesn't like that. There doesn't seem to an INTtoARRAYofBITS function, but there is an ARRAYtoBIT function. Any suggestions with this one?
  8. What would be the best instruction for me to use in Omron Sysmac to act like a FLL (File FILL) command in Allen Bradley? I have a Tag that is TAG_NAME ARRAY[0..95] OF BOOL I would like to set bit (array) 17 through 95 "ZERO" or "FALSE" with one function block. Set 80 bits FALSE? TAG_NAME[16] through TAG_NAME[95]  = 0?  
  9. Is there a manual or guide for Sysmac much like one that was made for CX Programmer? Here is the version of the manual I am referring too, I wonder if there was one for Sysmac Studio somewhere. http://forums.mrplc.com/index.php?/files/file/308-cx-programmer-ver5-introduction-to-function-blocks-guide-r121-e1-01/
  10. Many likes

    I am not sure if you guys can, but if you mark them as a SPAMMER, "ALL of their posts" become hidden at that point. I've been trying to delete them as they get reported. I know Mark does a good job reporting. Thank you Mark!
  11. Hi Chris,

    Hope you will be doing well. I have to set (increase) the damping on Crimson 3.0 (installed with Centurion PLUS™) for a Ariel Compressor. 

    I will appreciate if you could help me on this. Thanks in advance!

  12. It's getting harder for me to keep up to date on new innovations in the industry, but this week I was at a Neff Expo in New Jersey and I saw this Murr Mico Pro. Is anyone else using this product in their panel builds instead of traditional circuit breakers or fuse block holders for 24 VDC protection? Looks like a really neat product to try. https://www.murrelektronik.com/products-p/detail/electronics-in-the-cabinet/mico-proR.html
  13. on the allen Bradley  QandA there is a broken link to the AB KB in one of the answers.

  14. can i convert ab program to pdf format

  15. Good evening, do you know how to download RSlinx GATEWAY?
    why I want to do the communication of the labview with RSlogix 500 via OPC, except that RSLLX classic lite does not do this type of communication.
