  1. extracting remainder and unrounded quotient

    Beauty! that's got it! Thank you sir
  2. extracting remainder and unrounded quotient

    I'm definatally online Icon is spinning, but yes been there before aswell I have 11 in N7:10 dividing by 3 rounded result (N7:6) = 4 ' makes sense as its being rounded S:13 (I would figure would be 2) is 0 my trap N7:7 is also 0 S:14 (I would figure would be 3) is 0 my trap N7:8 is also 0
  3. Im trying to do a divide, and extract the remainder and unrounded quotient My S:13, and S:14 flags dont seem to be doing anything. Must be missing something stupid? TESTDIV.RSS
  4. Dont know what Im doing but while scrolling through my project, a little circle with an arrow pops up in my window showing the ladder. After that happens I can no longer control my pointer rather the entire page scrolls around. Cant figure out how to switch it back... Anyone know?? Stupid question but really P&**ing me off???
  5. fx1s comm problem rs intruction

    Ok got it working thanks
  6. fx1s comm problem rs intruction

    Me again Anyone know why when run this program I am transmitting 7F 00 instead of FF 00 FF 00 rstest.zip
  7. micrologix 1400 question

    Hi all I have a conveyor with an encoder on it, it is powered by a vfd speed referenced by analog output on a Micrologix 1400. I want to gradually decrease the speed of the conveyor after product Leaves the conveyor (ie as the hsc accumulates) and shut it off completely after a preset limit What is the best instruction to tackle this problem.
  8. FX1S data retention time limit

    Is there a time limit to how long data can be stored in the latched registers of an FX1S (D128-255) until it is lost if the power is off for an extended period of time?
  9. FX1S and RS instruction (gx developer)

    Ya I found out value in D8120 doesnt change untill power is cycled. Any way after a bit more research I found that my missing link was not setting M8122 alls good now

    Correction D8120 now shows 134

  12. FX1S and RS instruction (gx developer)

    They are supposed to be enabled However to break the test down to be simpler I have another cable that I cut up... If I connect 1-4-6 together and 7-8 together and leave rest of wires open should I not still at least see activity on the LED's? As far as D8120 is concerned You mentioned to me one other time how to change it was it in the project tree >> parameter >> PLC system[2] If so I have Operate communicatin setting - checked Protocol -Non procedural data length 7 Parity - Even Stop bit -1 transmission speed 9600 header - unchecked terminator - unchecked control line - unchecked H/W type -regular/RS-232C Control Mode - Invalid Station number setting 00 time out judge time 1ms However interestingly enough D8120 seems to be still 0
  13. Like to know how to make a RS instruction work using a FX1S PLC (I'm told its supposed to) See attached... As I understand it when I close X1 contents of D1 - D4 should transmit out but I cant get any activity (using null modem cable connected to computer running Serial Communicator program) Not interested at this point in recieving anything back hence the D5 as a dummy recieve destination [D] and 0 as number of words in data elements[n]. When I test I get nothing not even any activity on the status LEDs of the 232-BD so somethings amiss rstest.zip
  14. 2 main ones I use are the panasonic GT or a off shore brand called Samkoon these guys have an 10 inch diagonal full color touch that runs around 500.00 neither have controllogix tags that Im aware of anyway.
  15. Big question of is it possible has been answered . I was happy I can avoid using a panelview + I find them extremely confusing to set up and their cost is outrageous thanks for your help :)
