  1. Omron NX701, Sysmac Studio change array size

    Thanks @IO_Rack for your help however I am still getting errors????? I am making the changes in the PLC section of the project and when I change it to 24 I get an error as seen in the image.  I cannot seem to locate the "Context Menu"????
  2. Omron NX701, Sysmac Studio change array size

    I am aware that this would not be done from the HMI.  I am trying to change it within Sysmac Studio.  I need to reduce it as there are less battery positions on this particular project.
  3. Omron NX701, Sysmac Studio change array size

    Have to dig this up from the grave. I am having troubles editing my array size from 45 to 24.  Whenever I change the number to 24 I get a red box meaning error???? Can't seem to find anything to give me a clue as to what I am doing wrong???
  4. How do you access.........

    This is smart!  Thanks for your input.
  5. How do you access.........

    Hello forum.  I am trying to figure out how to hide or show buttons based on access/security level.  I know I can show based on the security level however that is only good for 1 level.  I would like to hide or show based on a range of levels so I don't have to keep duplicating objects. I would like to be able to hide the LOG OUT Button when any level is active and hide the LOG IN button when any level is active. I am not strong at structured text or what HMI parameters I can access???    
  6. Sysmac HMI Date Time Button

    No worries....I got it working!!
  7. Sysmac HMI Date Time Button

    I would like to resurrect this topic as I am having troubles getting the time to display on the HMI.  How does this feature work?  Does it need it's own variable? I thought it would use an internal script to display.  I am using an NA5 series HMI. #my head is hurting!
  8. Auto Screen Switch

    I am going to be up front and honest here guy's but I am not good (yet) at Structured Programming.  I want to have a screen that appears on startup only stay for an X amount of time before switching to the main Overview Screen. How do I go about this within the HMI only?  Where can I look for a reference on how to program Structured Text for these HMI's?  
  9. Connecting Sysmac Studio HMI to CJ PLC

    Nooooooooo!  Must have sound lol!!!!
  10. Connecting Sysmac Studio HMI to CJ PLC

    I was able to figure out how to get the addresses in a CJ PLC linked to an NA series HMI created in Sysmac to work!!!!  Actually it was very easy.  All I had to do was creat symbol names in the CX Programmer and then set them to Publish. After that I could import my Symbols into the Sysmac Developer Environment. Thanks everyone for all the suggestions.
  11. Connecting Sysmac Studio HMI to CJ PLC

    Thanks however it's in French.
  12. Connecting Sysmac Studio HMI to CJ PLC

    That's how the object shows.  I did add the PLC as an external device.  I did it 3 separate times and this is how it shows in the tree every time.
  13. Connecting Sysmac Studio HMI to CJ PLC

    Well that explains why I cannot get any communication going.  Looks like I will be telling my boss that he spec'd the wrong HMI series unless he wants to re program the PLC to an NJ as well!!

  15. Hi group,  I am starting to develop an HMI application using Sysmac Studio which is very new to me.  I can easily create graphics but my struggle is figuring out how to connect my graphics to the CJ2M CPU35 PLC.  For example I am trying to simply turn my indication to green when 4004.02 in the PLC is "TRUE".  Can someone point me in the right direction as the manual is a bit vague. Here is what I have done so far:
