  1. panelview 550 auto test failing

    Try this?
  2. panelview 550 auto test failing

    Basically, it says to reflash the firmware. If that doesn't work, it needs repair. That is what Joe said. Reflash the HMI. If reflashing doesn't work, it needs to go to someplace for repair!
  3. Torq settings Powerflex 4M

    Because of your name... My daughters went to Coastal Carolina University, and their mascot is a Chanticleer...
  4. Display IP Address

    Thank you Ken,      I will be able to test this hopefully on Monday and let you know. I did use their UDt's, so who knows.   Thanks for the help on this and all you do for this community!
  5. Display IP Address

    I have tried this and have yet to get it to work. 
  6. Display IP Address

    Hello All,      Has anybody tried to get an IP address out of a 1756-EN2T? I want to be able to extract it and display it on my HMI.
  7. Finding a Panelview Tag in the PLC

    Don't search for the value. Search for the tag name.    If you must search for the value, you can try it by pressing ctrl F, and enter the value in the search box? Not in controller tags, but out in the ladder window.
  8. rsview32 works

    My guess is you need to activate RsView32. How would AB know the difference between a "test" and actual production?
  9. Need Help - Change sensor to accurately detect box jams

    Are the roller conveyors powered? If so, you can flip the rubber bands around so the rollers role backwards, creating a mini gap. Then mount your sensor right at that gap.   We have used vision before to detect different box sizes and thus know if the box doesn't change in a certain period of time.   We have also used a spring loaded brush to create a gap.    I think you need to figure out a way to create a gap, or use multiple sensors. Saying if a box passed this sensor, but the next sensor downstream isn't on, then there is a jam.
  10. 1747-sn scanner

    Is this something that has been running and now doesn't?  Is this a new install, an upgrade, etc. What lead to this issue?
  11. I would make sure timer T4:2 isn't used somewhere else in the program. Put a jumper around the LEQ and make sure the timer times. Check to make sure you are calling that routine. Check to make sure there aren't any MCR rungs or jmp commands in that routine causing the code to be skipped over.
  12.   I'm an idiot. I was used to our setup where everything was on the network. I looked at it as if he couldn't even see the HMI. D'oh.   He can go to RsLinx and should be able to right click and upload the Eds because it is an AB product. If AB plays nice that is.   Thanks for seeing my error there pcmccartney. (face palms self...)
