  1. Hi, NA HMI is made as 'Sysmac' series product for connection to NJ. NB is not Sysmac product, but can be frigged at least to connect to FINS addresses. See this video on Omron YouTube channel for steps. The key is adding FINS physical address for the variables in the AT field like %W0.00 and setting to Network Publish Regards BB
  2. From PM this morning

    Hmm. Well with Omron's own CX-Server Lite you CAN read and write data over the USB port from VB/C#. I'm not sure if this is standard or custom protocol, but guess Omron are the ones who know how to do this. Regards BB
  3. CX-Spervisor Dev V3 WANTED TO BUY

    Hi Mike, Agree with the above. Don't know any other good second hand outlets - and rarely see any bargains on flea bay, just desperate hopefuls.  Note you can download the 30 day trial to tide you over during delivery.  If you are looking for second hand, good news is that any version 3.0 - 3.3 is valid to upgrade to 3.4 but not v2.x or older. Regards BB
  4. Urgent need for CX-Supervisor v2.x

    Hi, The new version should also work with your old project. If not, let us know why in case we can help on that.  BB
  5. use a v1.3 rs2 file with CX-Supervisor 3.x

    Yes, CX-Supervisor 3.x Runtime will load and run all old SR2 versions, including 1.33. Note however the 3.x Runtime does not accept the 1.3 dongle though so you would need a v3 PLUS dongle (or old v2 PLUS dongle). BB
  6. Trigger Open PLC

    Hi, I guess this has now been resolved by your other question Restart Runtime after PLC Power Down Regards, BB
  7. Restart Runtime after PLC Power Down

    Hi Peter, OK I guess the results show this seems to be working. This script can cause you problems though - it means you're calling this script every minute... even when you are already connected and online. That's why you should add Boolean memory point e.g. PLCConnected and then only call the script if you're not connected. That is the plan of that example. Even thoufg it seems to be working, personally I would add this point to avoid the repetitive function call. Either way, glad you got a solution Regards, BB
  8. Restart Runtime after PLC Power Down

    Hi Peter, My understanding is ur talking about when CX-Supervisor is started, with the panels switched off  (and therefore the PLCs).  In this case the PLCs are not opened on startup, but are not retried later when the panels are eventually powered on.  As you say this is a topic touched on before I think. Yes there is a script "OpenPLC()" to attempt connection, and this could be used many ways to try to make it automatic. In fact there is an example of just that on myOMRON.com, see How To Keep Trying To Open A Device That Fails To Connect I believe this should solve your issue. Regards, BB
  9. Hi again Bertie,

    So the solution to my problem is to put in a script to Open the PLC as I have tried the PLC  Maintenace  check box and it works perfectly. Not sure about the script as I have tried various ways and nothing is working. In Open PLC it asks for a Return State which I have used as an input in the PLC that is 1 when the PLC is running. The PLC is just the device PLC and the Completion Flag is an output that once again comes on when the PLC is running. The manual isn't very clear about what is needed for this action. I just really need the Open PLC to be automatically triggered when the PLC is started.

     

    Kind Regards

     

    Peter

  10. CX-supervisor

    Hi, Kinda obvious, but is the Runtime actually running at this time? You still need to launch the Runtime.  Also did you set up a user already as “web user” so that you can log in? Finally, are you on 32 but or 64 bit? If you are 64 bit have you followed the steps in the ReadMe as this requires setting up properly.  Regards BB
  11. PLC Omron CJ2M-CPU13

    Hi, Yes agree with Crossbow. If you’re cash rich but time poor then purchase Omron’s CX-Server Lite. In 5 minutes you can write macros to read out data, or even link up controls without any coding. For me it’s worth saving my time   Regards BB
  12. CX-supervisor runtime invalid

    Hi Ocoy93! Is the message "Error Could Not Execute"? Then as Tashinz correctly says you need to correct the file association as explained in this article How Do I Solve CX-Supervisor "Error Could Not Execute" Regards BB
  13. CP1H + CIF12 custom protocol

    Hi Pavel, No, CP1H only uses CX-Programmer in CX-One for programming, not Sysmac Studio (this is actually what the CX / C* means: CP1, CJ1, CJ2, CS, CV, C etc) so this topic should really be moved to CX-Programmer forum. Yes, CX-Programmer supports IEC "Structured Text" text editor programming.  PLC experts will tell you that graphical Ladder editing is easier and quicker for many digital tasks.  But I guess if you don't know it then it can't be easier Others might be able to help and comment if CJ1W-SCU dual comm port card is recommended, which is programmed with CX-Protocol (free in CX-One). Regards, BB
  14. CX-Supervisor improvement requests

    Looks like you’re in luck Jojo. Just seen in version 3.3 that developer can be installed in “Chinese”, so guess it must now be available in Asian market.  Regards BB
  15. CX Supervisor Modbus RTU

    Hi, No, there is a ModbusTCP control for Ethernet but not for serial, so recommend a SCU on the PLC to read.  Regards BB
