  1. Pair of typical Old Phfarts Jay - no patience - has to happen NOW! LOL
  2. Bugger! Too slow - never be quicker for mine. Came up with DOS software - typing in an I/O address wins hands down compared to symbols. Anyway! Must be getting old and grumpy!
  3. What a ruddy pain! IEC crap! Sticking to the CJ2M and CX-P for a lot of reasons. Bloody European requirements are a load of rubbish for mine. Way to slow to program. Studio is really a PITA. Give me CX-P anytime. Sorry - not helpful but how I feel - must be getting old and cranky! And I have to program a Schneider redundant system shortly - very painful also.
  4. Can't modify memory

    You can only write to the PLC and transfer data when in monitor mode or program mode. Put the PLC in monitor mode on start up and all will be good - monitor mode is the same as run mode except you can write to it and do online program changes. Settings as attached and write to PLC.
  5. Device Types, where are they?

    You can probably get it here
  6. Update CX-One and it works fine. Been using it since Windoze 10 came out.
  7. Omron CJ1W-ETN21 Redundant

    No - Modbus only has one master. I have managed to organise 2 Modbus masters in a Red Lion protocol translator though - not the same.
  8. Your previous post about this has been answered.
  9. And people wonder why I will not use the new ones! Sticking with CJ2 and CS1 - oh and CP1. I program on the keyboard using numbers - symbols are stupidly slow! I have a job to program with Schneider - symbols - painful - if you want to use the keyboard %I. then rack number - then slot number - then bit number! Studio is not much better!
  10. Scale Encoder Reading to 0 to 359

    OK - it is just that the last encoders I used were scaleable in the encoder - made it easy.
  11. Scale Encoder Reading to 0 to 359

    In the encoder?
  12. Fatal Error?

    Perhaps the peripheral port is dead. Check the manual - you can set the serial port to a default value and try again with a serial cable? Just be careful - the Omron serial cable is not standard. cable is 2-3, 3-2, 4 & 5 tied together at the computer end and 9-9 if I remember correctly - check and make sure - I have not used a serial cable for many years.  
  13. Fatal Error?

    You need CX-Programmer. You will have have to re-create the I/O table.
  14. CX-Spervisor Dev V3 WANTED TO BUY

    Contact Omron or a distributor.
  15. When will I use CIO and Work bits?

    W or work bits are just non retentive internal bits - known as M bits in other PLCs. CIO is common I/O bits and are used as inputs, outputs, and non retentive work bits as well. I rarely use W bits but just use CIO for most of my programming. You can also use the W area as non retentive words, as you can with the CIO area. The ability to access the D area as bits is only fairly recent - CJ2M if my memory is correct. D and H areas are both memory retentive.

    I believe you can get it here. or here not sure which version is is though.
  17. Counter and Divide

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

    Have a look at BSET - should do it for you. @BSET for a one shot.
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. Set the UM protection in CJ1M-CPU12

    Right click on PLC - properties - you are away.
  22. 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.
  23. Sending alarms with NA panel

    I have used a Web600 for sending emails across a network. You can select analogue or digital inputs.

    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.

    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.
