  1. Counter and Divide

    ? Makes no sense.
  2. Set multiple non-sequential bits in an array?

    Have a look at BSET - should do it for you. @BSET for a one shot.
  3. Alarm history in NB Designer

    Yep innoaloe - rubbish! And that is from a huge Omron fan! Sysmac Studio is rubbish for mine as well! Sticking with the old stuff - saves me heaps of time. I program by way of I/O numbers not useless, stupid symbols. Takes way too long - fast and furious here. Can make or lose a lot of money writing software - CX-One is brilliant - write software really quickly. I program via keyboard not drop down rubbish. Grew up with PLCs in the 1980s when there was a keyboard on the front of the Omron sequencer! Way back. And then there were very expensive EPROM burners and the like and even a very expensive printer interface module. The new stuff is hard to work with - getting like Schneider - impossible. Must be getting old - the new stuff is just too hard.
  4. Alarm history in NB Designer

    I think you will find this is coming out of Japan and not Europe? Or another manufacturers product re-badged? Someone will correct me if I am wrong. I have also been told Sysmac Studio is from Japan as well - hate it - love CX-Programmer and CX-Suite - it is my understanding that came from Europe. I remember other Japanese software that I refused to use - SSS - horrible! Used to use CAPS from the US - brilliant. Then Syswin was brilliant but I do not know from whence that came. It appears the Japanese think differently to the rest of the world? LOL
  5. Set the UM protection in CJ1M-CPU12

    Right click on PLC - properties - you are away.
  6. Remote IO

    Looks like the old CompoBus S - the 2 switches are for setting the communications for the SRT2 series - for the SRT1 series they are reserved and should be left off. This is all in manual W266-E1-09 page 148 - when all else fails read the manual.
  7. Sending alarms with NA panel

    I have used a Web600 for sending emails across a network. You can select analogue or digital inputs. https://www.sensaphone.com/products/sensaphone-web600-monitoring-system.php
  8. CX-PROGRAMMER MOVE INSTRUCTION

    The instruction will also show up red if there is no resultant output. & in front of a number is word type INT or UINT - # is word type HEX. You can use either but have to be aware that there may be confusing results. As you have shown in your example 105 is a CIO address - that also is fine and can be used that way - in my typed example above 2003 is a CIO address and &2375 is a constant - this can be UINT or INT. In the example above my intent was that it is a UINT. Omron is very flexible - the reason I love them.
  9. CX-PROGRAMMER MOVE INSTRUCTION

    I depends what you want to compare. For example use = inline - say input word 2003 &2375 to an output. Use the inline instructions such as =, >, <, =>, =< - there are a heap of them.
  10. Or the processor has failed? No good resetting it then.
  11. Not discussed here - your best bet would be have a chat to Omron and see if they are willing to help. Generally the answer is no anyway.
  12. Download program to Memory card

    That is not what I wrote - the error indicates that the program does not have an end instruction - it has to have an end instruction. I have never written back from an EEPROM so cannot help there - I stopped using the CQM series PLCs years ago as they are no longer supported. I just made the comment that there is an error no end instruction. I would be throwing the PLC away if it were mine and putting in a current model. Also I would put i a new battery before doing anything because if you transfer from the EEPROM and then turn the power off you will lose the program again.
  13. Download program to Memory card

    Looking at the PLC errors No END instruction is fatal. The battery also needs replacing but non fatal - just lose memory if the PLC is turned off.
  14. Urgent help CS1 CPU Stop

    Bus error and other things like that stop the CPU I think anyway. Best read the manual.
  15. Urgent help CS1 CPU Stop

    Yes but why? You want to know if the processor is stopped.
