  1. NX1P2 to Indusoft communication

    The product is now InTouch Machine Edition, by Schneider/Aveva... The only results that cousin google has for indusoft-NJ/NX is to use Sysmac gateway or componet ( I think ) What is odd, is that FINS is FINS, so it should work. Only the Indusoft driver developer will be able to say why it is not working...   Update: Have now managed to get this working. There is a setting called 'Ignore non-fatal error' or similar, that defaults to No. Changing to yes enabled the basic FINS to work.
  2. NX1P2 to Indusoft communication

    Old post I know, but the Sysmac series of PLC's support FINS as well, so the OMETH driver should work but does not. I am currently trying to get this to work, but returns error code 64-UDP/IP Receive call returned error So, the question is: why is this, or what driver works with this series of PLC .?   I have an InTouch DASOMFINSEnet driver working to a NX1P2 with no issues, which is pretty much FINS  
  3. possibly, but also unlikely. One setup we have has only a single IOLink module..
  4. Interesting. The only difference I can see is that the GX variant has a higher frequency capability? Still no adjustments though..?
  5. At this stage, perhaps. What frequency will you be requiring to count at?  It is possible that you might not have the noise/interference we have experienced, but is a hard one to determine
  6. The NX-ECO can count 500 kHz yes, but it can’t do any filtering of any noise is present.
  7. Interesting, we are also experiencing similar issues that we have been unable to solve with the NX modules. i have a few thoughts, but nothijg concrete as yet.
  8. Compare not working

    I suspect there is another move further up in program, loading a #6 into H0. The way CX-P works when online, it shows the current value at end of the scan. Because you are comparing H0 to 6, the compare output is correct, then you are clearing it.   As Michael points out, the complet code will help to identify where the issue lies. But also, you don’t need the compare if you stick with the counter.
  9. I’ve never used it, not have no idea on what it even does. But, wouldn’t it be the implementation for the recovery, rather that a fault of the instruction itself.? Unless of course the manual says that it can deal with powe failure events.?
  10. Questions about CJ2M EIP

    I am not sure if PMCR is still about or lurks occasionally, maybe someone will know. It should be relatively easy to modify the code that communicates with the ML1400 to suit the K300...
  11. There should be an 'events & actions' tab somewhere...
  12. Auto Update Failure

    I had exact same issue, & therefore stress about having a workable version & access to recent projects I had not yet exported for backup purposes.   What I think my issue was, the VM was out of c:\ space, so when it did the uninstall it had no room for the install. Simply increasing the size did not solve as the uninstall had already been done. Luckily, I had some older updates that I could run which corrected everything.
  13. Working with arrays

    PLC's are very different to c++ They do support structured text, supposedly to the IEC61xxx standard (I forget the exact number), but not all of them implement them the same (IMO). Perhaps if you describe in more plain text what you are trying to achieve? It looks like you are wanting to multiply each input element by 2? There would be a far more efficient way of doing this using ladder..
  14. Motion Instruction Enable flag stuck on

    Not 100% sure, but is the rung edge triggered, or conditional? From memory, I had similar issues, so just un-latched the Done, Error & Enable flags always (I think), due to similar issues.
  15. How to get screenshots from CXDesigner?

    Run CX-Designer in test mode, connecting to the PLC (if ethernet), then use the windoze snipping tool.
