  1. Allen Bradley FLL command in Omron?

    The ladder code (3 rungs) or the ST (1 block) will do what you are looking for. Edit:  I mixed and matched the starting position of the FOR in the ladder and ST.  They would start at the same position. You can also make your own Function to do this, using the ladder or ST shown.
  2. If you want to PM the program to me, I can open it an tell you what version it is. 1.25.1 is the latest iso image. Anything above 1.25.1 is done through the update tool. Sysmac Studio 1.25.1 supported up through version 1.18 of the NX1P2. Sysmac Studio 1.18 supported the next firmware version of the NX1P2, which is 1.21. The link below shows the entire update history for Sysmac Studio.   https://www.fa.omron.co.jp/product/tool/454/sysmac-studio/e1_doc.html
  3. Explicit MSG - CP1H - CompactLogix/Micro850

    Writing to assemblies is an optional part of the EtherNet/IP specification. Omron PLCs generally do not permit this. This prevents one PLC from overwriting the data from another PLCs Implicit Message connection. The document in the link below shows the steps to setup the implicit message connection.   http://forums.mrplc.com/index.php?/files/file/1153-cj-to-compactlogix-implicit-messaging/

  9. NX or NJ Variable Historian View File This sample code creates a variable historian. It was originally created for a customer who wanted to log data at different intervals for different variables, and in some cases, only on change of state. It essentially can be used to write event data to a .csv file. Submitter PMCR Submitted 09/06/19 Category Omron

  11. What model is the controller, and what firmware version is set in the project? On you previous installation of Windows, had you used the Omron Automation Software Autoupdate tool to perform the free update to a newer version of Sysmac Studio? The current version is 1.29.1.
  12. NE1A EtherNet/IP Communications

    See the attached document. Your router configuration may be different, but the concept will be the same. Internet based access to Omron PLCs.pdf
  14. Help INDEX REGISTORS

    Attached is a doc that I wrote that explains all 3 indirect types of addressing available in Omron PLCs. Using IR and DR for Indirect Addressing.pdf Also, below is a link to a forward / reverse IR calculator (in VB) that I wrote before the manuals spelled out the memory areas.

  15. Should I Use Function Blocks?

    poovs This sounds like security / detention industry. Function Blocks are one way to make your job easier. Another way to do this that I use is to take a function like a door unlock, and create a single instance of ladder code using indirect addressing (using IR pointers). Then wrap a for / next loop around the code and step through many instances of the code in 1 scan. This cuts down troubleshooting, as you are changing 1 instance of your code. Here is an example. Door release buttons for 400 doors at 50.00 - 74.15 Individual timers for each door T100 - T499 Door outputs at 100.00 - 124.15 Press and hold a button for 1/2 second before opening a door. This takes some work up front to line up the data in contiguious blocks, but makes for some very efficient code. Simple_For_Next_Loop_Example.cxp
  16. File Name: FINS Ethernet Master / Slave Solution File Submitter: PMCR File Submitted: 26 Jul 2013 File Category: PLC Sample Code Drop in code for Single Master and up to 30 Slave PLCs on FINS Ethernet. The Master PLC can be a CP1L-E, CJ2M, CJ2H, CS1, or any PLC capable of sending FINS commands. Originally designed to share data across a network of CP1L-E PLCs. Each PLC shares 100 words in each direction with the master PLC. The reads can be setup to read as fast as possible, or at a given interval. The writes can be change of state (COS) driven, as fast as possible, or at a given interval. .pdf manual included. Click here to download this file
  17. f3dps2 I agree that not having a help reference for send / receive makes them a little tricky. Once you understand the variables that you need to pass in, I think the NJ makes this easier than the CJ PLCs, and I have done SEND / RECV in CJs for many years. Attached is a screen shot of a working SEND instruction. I do have network 1 defined as the built in EtherNet/IP port. I have defined the Net, Node, and Unit using the Initial Value setting. CommPort is not used, so set this to _NONE. You define the destination memory area using a variable of _eArea type, and you can put _DM, _CIO, etc as the value. Just use the _ character, followed by the memory area. You will see a drop down list once you start to build it. If this does not help keep you moving forward, let me know.

  18. I believe the answer may be more in depth. Microsoft has released 9 versions of Windows 10 so far.  These are build versions (1507, 1703), not Enterprise, Home, etc. Newer versions of 10 do require updated USB drivers, which can be obtained using the Omron Automation Software Updater included in CX One and SYSMAC Studio. I believe the change in the driver is because Microsoft has started to require drivers to be digitally signed, and some of the drivers in SYSMAC Studio were not signed.
  19. Omron FH-L550 Camera controller

    Which Field Output tool are you using? I am going to assume it is PLC Link - Mitsubishi. If so, there is a Command / Response area outlined in manual Z342-E1-07 which is how you transfer data to the FHL. Commands to Write Data has a command 0050 1000 which is Set Unit Data. Each tool has an External Reference Table, which shows the numerical value for each item in a given tool. The External Reference Table is in manual Z341-E1-08.  
  20. RTU Modbus With CJ2M PLC and 3G3RX Drives on RS485

    Using a CJ1W-SCU31, CJ1W-SCU41, CJ1W-SCU32, or CJ1W-SCU42 on the PLC (CJ1 or CJ2) would be supported by the following code using the RS485 port on the SCU. http://forums.mrplc.com/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=867
  21. Using the latest Kepware OPC server is the best choice. Using CJ style addresses in the AT column works, but string data types would be a problem. The NJ stores strings internally in high / low byte order differently than a CJ.  A string of ABCD stored in an NJ read using a CJ address based driver would show up as BADC in the client software. This is the reason that devices such as the NB HMI have an NJ/NX driver selection when using the FINS protocol.  The driver knows that strings are stored differently.  I don't remember if any other data types are affected, but the Kepware OPC server that supports the NJ by tag name some solves the issue.
  22. File Name: Easy to use Modbus RTU Master for CP1L CP1H CJ1 CJ2 CS1 File Submitter: PMCR File Submitted: 18 Jun 2009 File Updated: 19 Sep 2012 File Category: PLC Sample Code This application is a ready to use Modbus RTU master for CP1L, CP1H, CJ1, CJ2, and CS1. The user creates 'tables' of items to read and write. The ladder code automatically performs the communications as setup by the user. The CJ1 / CJ2 / CS1 solution requires the use of a Protocol Macro on an SCU31 / SCU41 module, and the CP1L / CP1H function uses the Serial Gateway function of the CP1H / CP1L on a CP1W-CIF11 or CIF12. Sample NS screens are provided with an Omron 3G3JX inverter as an example Modbus RTU slave. Updated 1/7/2011 to include 3G3MX2 screen for NS, and to include CJ1W-SCU22,32,42 in documentation. Updated 9/19/2012 to support 2 ports on an SCU card (CS, CJ1, CJ2) or 2 ports on a CP1L / CP1H. Click here to download this file

  25. Communication with Cognex Insight camera

    I have helped a few customers through this configuration. On the Cognex side, you need firmware 4.1 or higher on the Insight. There is an eds file specifically for 4.1. In the included ZIP file is an example that an Omron distributor did for a Cognex to Omron CJ2 connection. View the .ppt file as the slide show, as he overlaps window. Eip.zip
