  1. Communication issue between 5069-L320ERM and 2715-B10CD

    So you are saying that the AOP at v2.02 is communicating properly to the PV5500 at v.3.1? If so, then run with it.   Ok, so basically you want to monitor the PV5500 and it's E/IP connection and trigger a controlled stop of your machine or process. Not sure about Logix v30 and View 3.01. Currently I have only gotten to v28 and v2.02. You are saying the View 3.01 will not create and download a v2.02 runtime file to the PV5500.  As a result, you had to upgrade the PV5500 to v3.01.  Seems to me that goes against Rockwell's history of support for older versions of firmware in PVs.  I would expect View to be able to create the runtime file at the correct version of firmware for the associated PV. Think you need to talk to Rockwell about that.  My suggestion would be to downgrade the firmware to v2.02 and see if the PLC comms error goes away, then figure out how to get a runtime file into it. The other possiblity, is that the AOP needs to be updated in Logix to get you to v3.1

    Is adding the PV to the hardware tree is a requirement of Studio?  Does this gain you access to the Studio View Designer?  Is this for the purpose of "drag and drop" capability between Logix Designer and View Designer? Generally, it is not recommended to add a PV to your tree.  I'm speaking in older versions of Logix 5000 and FT View Studio.  I have never really found a benefit to having it in the tree, only problems occur. Is there a benefit or value you are seeking from having the PV in the tree?

    Are you saying that you configured a PV in your PLC Hardware IO Tree?
  4. Devicenet error 80

    You need a rung of code to turn on the "Enable" to the scanner. Let me expound a little more. I tend to have a timer based off of the S:FS, usually set to 20 secs that acts as a power up timer.  When the timer is done I turn on the "Enable" with an OTE.
  5. Micrologix 1200 clearing controller memory

    After downloading and a power cycle, the processor goes into fault condition? It could be for several reasons. Does the IO configuration match the actual physical setup of the ML1200?  Does your program have add on IO modules in the program on on the processor and therefore they don't match up? You code could be getting a bad value that exceeds the limitation of a datatype. You could go online with the PLC and find the major or minor fault code and report back to us, so that we can provide more assistance.   Sorry b_carlton for adding on here, but until the new thread is started...

    I still don't think I understand what you are trying to accomplish. What is the L19ER talking to or with and exchanging data? Where did you get the "Module-Defined" data types?  Even if you where using the "Module-Defined" datatypes, you would need to define the module in the I/O Configuration.  It would then reference the "Module-Defined" data type and create the tags in the database, rather than you simply adding the ENode_1 in the controller tags.

    I second Travis's comments.  Just for giggles, I tried unity mode after reading this thread, no short answer is no, nope, no way....

    Did you define an ethernet interface in the hardware tree using a Generic EtherNet Module?  If so, could you please post pictures of it?
  9. RS Logix Designer Tags

    Are you creating a "Generic EtherNet Module" in the PLC I/O Configuration? This is where you would define your instances and the number of bytes, bytes, words, etc... On the left side is where you would select the data type.  Is it possible that you left this setting at a default value of SINT? Can you post a picture of the Generic EtherNet Module?
  10. How to read/write drive parameters?

    It's a shame that this can't be done be done via a Generic-EtherNet Module with instances and file lengths.  Seems like the data is scattered all over the place.
  11. Communication with Yaskawa drive

    Andrew, I think you are on the right track. I;ve done this in the past: Input 71 2 16-Bit Output 21 2 16-Bit Config 1 0 8-Bit   So, in my example it was called Mixer. So Mixer:I.Data[0]  contained the status bits Mixer:I.Data[1] was the Actual Speed (3000=30.00 Hz) Mixer:O.Data[0] was the command bits Mixer:O.Data[1] was the commanded or reference speed (3000=30.00 Hz)
  12. how to read real time clock in RSLogix 500

    Not exactly sure what you are trying to accomplish. If you want the values from the function file for the Real Time Clock (RTC), then you could MOV RTC:0.YR N7:0.  Other values in the file are MON, DAY, HR, MIN, SEC, DOW, DS and BL.
  13. Kinetix 300 Faults to PLC

    Well...I added a 300 to the IO tree of a project.  Then looked at the tag database and found Axis:I.Fault which is a DINT and a summation of all the boolean fault below it.  Worst case scenario the manual describes these for you.
  14. Kinetix 300 Faults to PLC

    Yes, if they are both on the same network.  All the alarms are in the AOP for the Kinetix 300.
  15. error 189h in MicroLogix 1400

    Your demo project file does not have any configuration of the base module.  Additionally, there are no add on modules configured.  Something doesn't jive here.
