  1. WIFI Communication to RIO

      I think this will lead you in a good direction: http://www.prosoft-technology.com/Products/Gateways/EtherNet-IP/EtherNet-IP-to-Allen-Bradley-Remote-I-O-or-DH-Gateway http://www.plctalk.net/qanda/showthread.php?t=114670 Hope this helps   Bye
  2. Usage of 8-24VDC encoder with 1746HSCE

    Hi, I just did some research for you. Encoder brand: FEMA (not Elcis) Model: XA59C12-50-824-B-B-CV-R-05 X: Custom options A: High temperature 59C: 59mm, hollow shaft, to be used on motors 12: 12mm (diameter) 50: 50 ppr 824: Power supply 8 - 24 Vdc (Can be supplied with 24V) B: Bidirectional - no Z channel B: Push-pull output (this is compatible with your module) CV: Cable R: Radial (in this case refers to the cable location) 05: 5m (cable length)  Bye  
  3. Usage of 8-24VDC encoder with 1746HSCE

    Hi man, I haven't used this module but reading in the 1746-HSCE2 user's manual 1746-um002_-en-p.pdf chapter 3 it says: "For a 12V dc encoder signal, use the 24V dc jumper setting" and in appendix A (specifications) you'll see that 12V is inside the input range but very close to the edge so you have to make sure the pulses from your encoder pass the on-state and off-state threshold levels. You haven't mention what model your encoder is. Make sure your encoder hardware and the module are compatible. Bye    
  4. DriveLogix Powerflex 700S Motion Help

    Hi, I have some questions for you: Does the drive have an HMI installed? Does it display a message like position error or something? How do you put the system back to work? Recycle power? Does the MAM instruction set the pc bit? error bit? What type of feedback device do you use, absolute or incremental? Is there a chance that coupling between the motor and the load slides?
  5. Periodic Tasks Effects on Communication

    Hi, My recommendation for you is to analyze the program and take advantage of the Task Monitor Tool to modify the program in order to avoid task overlapping which prevents tasks from executing all the code and is a source of erratic behavior. You should also reserve enough time for system overhead and reconfigure your CPU to utilize this time to serve either the continuous task (if there is one) or reserve this time for system tasks. The communication with your workstation will be served during this system overhead time. See: Knowledgebase topic 54182 and Programming Manual 1756-pm005_-en-p.pdf Most probably you will find that you can expand some task scan periods. I may be wrong but this seems to have been programmed by someone accustomed to program Siemens who didn't check the performance of this application deep enough. Bye  
  6. Hi, Is there any way to disable the little preview window that shows up when you hover the mouse on a routine tab in logix designer? I think it appeared for the first time in RSLogix 5000 V17. I don't know if anybody else is annoyed by this windows but I certainly am. Thank you  
  7. MAOC instruction Question

      I just want to tell that this project materialized and the press has been working fine since startup about six months ago. I ended up programming two separate MOAC instructions. One I utilize to generate logic bits to synchronize the press with some functions like: servos sheet advance command, product control and die protection, and the press normal stop command. The second MAOC I utilize to drive two physical outputs of my 5069-OBF module, one pushes the product out of the tool and the other expulses the product from the die. The major problem I faced was how to make the MAOC instruction drive only two physical outputs. Originally I configured the MAOC as in knowledgebase topic 853576. I only wanted bits 4 and 5 of my output module to be driven by the instruction but I got all the other bits to go "false". I struggled with this problem for an hour but since I needed to finish all the programming in a very short time I decided to use a different approach and go back to this issue later on. The different approach was to configure the Module's Output Data as "Data" (not scheduled) and drive bits 4 and 5 from my press task. The press task was configured to run every 2 msec so I estimated that this would introduce an error of 2.4 degrees while running at 200 struck/min. Fortunately this turned out to be completely tolerable. I haven't gone back to this issue so far since I need production to stop and there is no hurry to do so. Finally my question:   Has anybody had this same issue with a 5069 CompactLogix?      Ideas? Thank you
  8. Micrologix 1200R Communication port & cable

      I think you have to buy an 8 pin mini din extension cable and an 8 pin door mounted mini din connector and build the cable your own
  9. Micrologix1200 - unable to go online

      Hi, Doing some search on the internet I found that apparently the error is due to the fact that the version of RSLogix 500 that you are using cannot handle some part of the program (Data Files, Addressing or something else). If this is the case, the "solution" is to use a different version of RSLogix 500.  
  10. Send reverse commande plc to drive

    Hi, The input assy object (to read information from the servo) corresponds in your program to: data file L208 words L208.0 to L208.15 for drive 192.168.2.8 and words L208.16 to L208.31 for drive 192.168.2.9 The output assy object (to write to the servo) corresponds in your program to: data file L210 words L210.0 to L210.12 for drive 192.168.2.8 and words L210.13 to L210.25 for drive 192.168.2.9 See attached example and tables explanation from rockwell You can find more information and manuals in the rockwell automation site under literature, sample code library and knowledgebase   K300 ML1400 EnetIP Example v1_0.zip
  11. Send reverse commande plc to drive

    Hi, I apologize for my English, with a "picture of your program taken when the servo is faulted" I meant a copy of the program uploaded when the servo were faulted (not a photo). I am glad to help Hope we can work it out Bye  
  12. info possibilità aggiornamento

    Greetings and Welcome Updates: Not sure but I think they are not necessary. Software: Sure you can, it's called RSLogix 500 or a free version called RSLogix Micro Starter Lite which precisely supports ML1000  
  13. Send reverse commande plc to drive

    Dear alplus, I am working on the problem but still unable to figure out what is happening. Please let me know if I am right or wrong. Your robot has two servos, one to move up and down and the other to go left and right. The homing sequence is being completed with success but when you turn the robot to auto it moves up correctly but then moves right instead of left. Am I right? It would be very helpful if you send  me the plc’s connections so that I see where the auto signal is connected and also another picture of your program taken when the servo is faulted so that I have the information that I need. Bye
  14. Send reverse commande plc to drive

    Hi, Is the servo connected to the plc via ethernet cable? If this is the case please, post the plc program Is the servo being referenced by an analog signal? Is the servo being commanded by means of step and direction signals? If this is the case then check the direction signal Honestly I haven't worked with k300 but I may be able to help you if you send more information. The electric diagram may  be helpful also. bye
  15. MAOC Instruction Help

    Hi, I do not see why you would like to use two different MAOC instructions pointing to the same module since you can schedule and compensate each output individually and every output can also be unlatched individually by position or time. The only limit is the number of outputs that your module can process. Probably I didn't understand your question and you would like to set different axis arm position and cam arm position for each instruction. Sometimes when I don't get an official answer to my questions, what I do is to test by myself. In this case for example, program two MAOC instructions that use the same integer as the output and see what happens. After that you may want to test your actual module. By the way, recently I programmed a punching press using this instruction and I had to perform many tests before being satisfied with the result. Bye
