  1. CANT ENABLE KINETIX 300 DRIVE

    STO connector 5 SafetyCOM -24 4 SafetyInput 1 +24 (Usually through a safety relay) 6 SafetyInput 2 +24 (Usually through a safety relay) IOD connector 26 IN_A_COM -24 29 Inhibit/Enable +24 At a minimum this should be what you need to get the drive capable of enabling I've never heard of MotionView, so I won't be much help there.
  2. Unlock FB and FC @ TIA portal

    Nope, and asking is a great way to get banned.
  3. Newly added tags won't show up in ME

    Online or Offline?
  4. ControlLogix String Access via EIP/CIP

    All of the drivers I've encountered work in a similar way to was arj3090 said.  They get the .LEN of the string, then just loop-read the .DATA[0 to LEN-1] of the string and assemble the string like that.  
  5. We got a project for a small machine, customer has requested Schneider/Modicon for PLC/HMI. I haven't used any of it in several decades.Any experts out there that can tell me what model PLC/HMI/Software I need to look at to replace what I thought would be a CompactLogix?Need Ethernet/IP Scanner, maybe 16 in/out on the rack. The rest of the IO would be over EIP (a couple of valvestacks and a Fanuc R30 controller)Low-ish IO count, a few pallet stops and a handful of cylinders and grippers.The bulk of the programming will be in the Fanuc, the PLC will just handle the cylinders/conveyor/IO passthrough to the Fanuc.Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.Thanks.PS. Asked customer if they had any PLC's/HMI's in house so i could keep it somewhat the same, their answer was, and I quote, "I dunno, we just need Schneider"... It is for a Schneider Plant FYI.
  6. RS232 Communication With ET200S SI Module

    also, make sure your module is set to ASCII, not 3694(R)
  7. RS232 Communication With ET200S SI Module

    How do you have your End detection of a received frame parameters set?  If the lights are blinking, and you're getting the data in your terminal program, it probably means you don't have the module delimiters set correctly.  try setting it for After character delay time elapses set to 100ms.
  8. Logix5000 alias information

    I think it just means it's a controller scoped tag.  I made a new local tag and an alias for it and it didn't have the (C). just a guess.
  9. Virtual Machines

    I haven't.  I do a lot of remote work over vpn, so I just launch the vm.  If I need to use something on my host, I either minimize the VM or hook up my external monitor.
  10. Cleco to PLC Communication

    I've done it a few times, the EIP works well, great for getting back torque/angle results without decoding a serial string.    
  11. Virtual Machines

    I run multiple VM's, no major problems so far.  VMWorkstation 14, windows 10 pro host (32gb ram/16gb dedicated graphics),  all vm's set to 8gb memory, 4 processors, 256gb disks, Full screen. If Studio5K starts acting weird or crashy, i just reboot the vm.    
  12. How to read/write drive parameters?

    Sorry man, I have no idea.  You'll have to find the communication manual from Invertek or maybe someone else on this site has some experience with this drive.   Good Luck.
  13. CompactLogix PLC Family 5370 Data Byte Order

    I usually just use trial and error with the byte order.  if the data doesn't look right, swap the endian. I don't think Logix has an unsigned integer tag type.
  14. How to read/write drive parameters?

    What drive are you using?  You'll need to setup a MSG instruction. You can get the comms manual from the AB literature library for whatever drive you're using. I believe there is a limit on the number of writes you can do to a drive, I would make sure you're not writing the parameters every scan.  
  15. Can I upgrade a project in Version 11 to Version 14

    I remember going through that, i don't remember it taking as long as they said it would.   Good Luck.
