  1. Ladder program save in PDF file

    Simple way is install CutePDF.  It makes a printer that writes to PDF.   Then just open your programming software and print your project.
  2. KINCO HMI MTT4414T Password

    Yes.  Talking about bypassing passwords here is against the terms of service you agreed to when you made your account.  
  3. converting gx developer program to gx works 2

    The A-Q conversion software used to be a free download on their website, but I haven't looked in several years.
  4. Elipse scada

    Remember that we ban users for discussions of hacking or bypassing passwords.  You agreed to this when you made your account.  We are not here to assist you in stealing someone else's work.
  5. Overriding user in gx works 2

    I've never heard of a way either.
  6. Amazing how few people actually read the terms of service when they sign up on this site.  It clearly states this type of conversation will get you banned.  Don't ask again.
  7. You create your function blocks in their own programs in the Functions and Function Blocks folder in the Multiview Explorer.  You don't declare them inside a program, they are their own programs.
  8. String to Real

    All commands are in the toolbox.  No exceptions.
  9. Pop up login screen editing

    Does the terminal have some kind of setup menu where you may select a language?  Seems like if it was a built in thing there would be a built in change capability. Sorry don't know these terminals, as I mentioned before...
  10. What is the benefit of using Structured programming?

    Weeding out the rookies huh?  Or scaring them off?
  11. Change title bar of pop-up screen

    Not that I have seen.
  12. String to Real

    There are commands in the CPU to convert a string to REAL or LREAL.   STRING_TO_REAL STRING_TO_LREAL
  13. Pop up login screen editing

    Don't know Siemens, but i suspect if it's like other HMIs that I work on the login screen is a system function and can't be edited.
  14. edit comment directly from got

    I would put the name in as a text string.  Then add an ASCII display or ASCII edit object on the HMI. Pretty sure the comments in the GOT can't be accessed via the program.
  15. SoftGOT is a package to run the HMI on a PC.  That makes the PC the HMI.  It's not for use to communicate with an actual GOT terminal. GT Designer3 is the programming software.
  16. Ethercat, Smartwire dt, or Other

    Use EtherCAT on an almost daily basis.  Good and fast, wiring is very free form.  Every slave device has 2 ports so you can wire node to node, but there are also junction slaves which can create tap and drop or star topologies.  And of course its standard CAT5 Ethernet cables and RJ45 plugs, so simple to install and terminate. Troubleshooting is very simple too.
  17. What is the benefit of using Structured programming?

    Last I knew of that program you agreed to all of that when you signed up.  But I also don't recall the program ever having any exclusive area criteria.  And the points for the tests expired after 2 years to make sure engineers stayed current.  I looked into it many years ago but Mitsubishi US said they did not participate in the program.
  18. Panasonic FP-X and FPWIN

    Comments may not have been downloaded by the original programmer.  Many times that data was not sent into older PLCs because of their limited amount of memory.  Can you get an original project file from the original programmer?
  19. Indirect addressing in FB CJ2

    My understanding is that if the address is prefixed with @, the actual address referenced is based on the value in that register. So your second move command isn't writing to D500, it's looking at D500 and writing to the address indicated inside. So based on your example code, The value 123 is written to D1500.
  20. Need Copy of PL7-07

    I haven't touched one of those in over a decade.  Just because they do not sell or support it anymore does not necessarily mean they have released the software as public domain.  If their technical support states it is public domain, I may have an old copy on a CD somewhere.
  21. OMRON PLC with Modbus TCP/IP

    Which model?     And why didn't you put this in the Omron forum?  You are more likely to get responses there.  I can move it if you'd like.
  22. Programming cables

    Check with the vendor.  I've never heard of them.  Every vendor is different, there is no single place to look for this information, as there are hundreds of vendors.
  23. Pointer In GX-Work2

    You need to use data registers (D) not pointers (P).  Pointers are to jump to different parts of a program.  They don't store data.
  24. There is no difference in drivers.  I use Windows 10 with Sysmac on a daily basis.
  25. Adept Viper Robot programming from PLC

    The function block comes with a manual when you download it, that details every motion function block and how to use them.  There is also an excellent guide on how to set this up. The manual number is W575.  If you downloaded and installed the library file from the Sysmac Library website you already have it in your computer, in the C:\OMRON\DATA\Lib directory. The quick start guide is here... https://industrial.omron.us/en/media/Adept_Robot_Control_Library_StartupGuide_en_201605_P103-E1-01_tcm849-108761.pdf
