  1. Hi Ive gotten a trouble with a plc festo,  I wonder someone of you has stumble with the same trouble, when you connect to the plc, and upload the program thats is working, then you try to go online, appears a window saying that the program has changed, (when compiling program errors did not appear, and I did not changes at all). Last time I downlad the program and the comms between the HMI and the plc got lost for a while, I turned off and turn on the plc and started to work again, (Almost an hour) later comms got back, and the machine worked.   I need modifications on the code, but Im not shure If I could do that cause the comms would get lost? I do the same with other plc and does not do the same. Thanks in advance  
  2. convert a rslogix program to a pdf

    Hi! I´d like to ask something, I know it´s very simple for someone, but I don´t know how to do it, How can I convert a rslogix program to a pdf? I tried to use the same converter from acad to pdf, But all the program appeared in one sheet, Greatful for your answers See you! Enrique from mexico.

    ok, I´ll watch it out! i´ll keep you apprised about it see you later, thanks!
  4. Advice about automation growth, (help!)

    Hi! mr J ross and drx, how you´ve been? I just write these post to show and ask your opinion, I just got a call about a proyect, a relative of mine started to produce a machine, it is use for extracting oil, they were able to produce some units the last year, but the person who was performing the programation was fired, these person didn´t grant the complete plc program, electric drawings and information about the proyect to my relatives, ( it is a family company) He did not give them anything, they asked me first, the complete electrical drawings of the proyect, the plc program (I was able to upload it to my computer) the HMI program ( I was not able to upload it is a Delta hmi) The machine is composed with 1 50 hp motor 1 2hp motor 11 24vcd inputs 8 relay outputs 2 analog inputs They want for me to perform the complete job, and then, the thing here, I started these year with the purpose to get in programation but I´m not an expert, and the question is what could be the risk on here? and if you have anny recomandation for me, would be great... see you later and best regards..

    Thanks a lot! But I need more practice, could you (or anyone) recommend an internet place or a book or a electric drawing, to develop another proyect? see you and thanks again.
  6. Advice about automation growth, (help!)

    Hi! Ross and Joe E. How are you doing? Well I´m gonna to describe the little proyect I just finished, I used an 5/03 16K processor, and the 1746 NI4 , a 1746 NO4I analog modules, the aplication can be open and run on a proyect on rsview32. I simulated a weight cell with analog output, in the 1746 NO4I And the goal on these proyect is to fill a tank with 5 diferent kind of materials, ant you can select the desire cuantity on kilograms, you can fill it with a combination of the 5 materials, or could be only one of them, or all of them, anyone you need to choose, but these combination would be allowed only if you not exceed the limit of kilograms thar would overfill the tank. first you must place the can on the place to fill, later you must recognize the weight of the tank, (that can vary) , these weight will be stored on an F, later you can start to fill the tank, and the valves will open starting and closing in the same order. later when I start to change the mA in the analog imput the outputs triggered in order untill the desire weight of all the materials is reached. at the end a message is sowed when the filling has ended. then. what doyou think?

    Ok, if I finish the little project I´m working now, I will send you more pics, or video in this same conversartion. See you! Thanks

    Hi JRoss , these message is just to show you the things I've been doing, and to ask you if I'm on a good track, See you later
  9. Requesting information about SLC 5/03 and Panel view 600 AB

    communication with the plc reached!! I used a usb-rs232 cable, then the rs232 cable ( I performed the connection in the db9 connector) the PV 600 is wating,.. I got my firs proyect on Rsview 232.. this is great! thankful to you for all the comments, I will keep you aprised about these topic. Best Regards.
  10. Requesting information about SLC 5/03 and Panel view 600 AB

    Thanks a lot!! I will keep you apprised with these little proyect I got, I know it is very simple for some people of these forum, but I hope to learn....
  11. Requesting information about SLC 5/03 and Panel view 600 AB

    here is the data you requested, what hardware I´m gonna need? thank you!
  12. Requesting information about SLC 5/03 and Panel view 600 AB

    ok it´ll be here in no time
  13. Hi! I just acquired these plc and panel view, and I need to know what hardware and software I´m gonna need for programming. any recommendation? thanks!
  14. Hi! I´m an electrical engineer, I started as an electrician, and as a electric motor technician, and I´ve been working in some companies, but the automation was and it´s been very simple, only digital I/O. I´ve taken courses using festo, siemens and allen bradlley software, I went trough the HMI´s examples and programation, and the last course I took was analog signals with AB. I´m very interested continuing studing automation, and I don´t have any chance to practice at work, But I discovered very interesting these branch of the engineering, But, These field it´s very big, very massive, a lot of information, What´s next? what would you suggest for me to do? networks? robotics? Or still being a fan of the automation an continuing with my full time job as an maintinence supervizor,(with almost nule chance to programing plc). I hope your response in no time! help!
