  1. RSView32 VBA Run-time error '4205'

    Looks like you already tried a few things I would suggest. I used to use RSView32 a lot, a few years ago. It worked fine on Windows XP, but when used with Windows 7 I had all kinds of issues with the VBA code. I called Rockwell many times and the best advice I got was to go through the VBA code carefully and rewrite it if needed. Delete part of the VBA code, run the project, see if the error goes away. If it does, then you know what part of the VBA code caused the problem. If not, then continue to delete more of the VBA code until you can get the project to run without an error. Obviously make sure you have a good backup of the project first. Hope this helps. Edit: also try to uninstall any recent Windows 7 updates and see if this helps
  2. Random MSG instruction error

    You're using a Micrologix so I'm assuming you're using RSLogix500. The Instruction Help for MSG lists the error codes and their meaning. I just looked, looks like there are about 50 different error codes with different meanings so maybe this can help you narrow it down. Try to be online with the PLC at startup so you can catch the exact error code when this issue happens.  
  3. FLL Instruction - RSLogix 5000

    Can you post an image of your logic? Is it possible, that after the FLL is completed, some other values are written to your ".Count" somewhere else in the logic
  4. Rslinx cannot set port type to 288

    This link may help: You may want to try to delete the Harmony files too: go to either C:\Program Files\Rockwell Software\RSCommon   C:\Program Files (x86)\Rockwell Software\RSCommon depending on if you have a 64 bit or 32 bit PC. Delete Harmony.hrc and Harmony.rsh (See Tech Note 769010 in the Rockwell Knowledgebase for more info on Harmony files)
  5. 1746-NO8V configuration

    Can you go online with the PLC? If you can then look at word S:6 for the error code. See page 6-4 here: http://literature.rockwellautomation.com/idc/groups/literature/documents/um/1746-um026_-en-p.pdf See page B-26 here for a complete list of error codes and what they mean: http://literature.rockwellautomation.com/idc/groups/literature/documents/rm/1747-rm001_-en-p.pdf  
  6. SERCOS II ---> Ethernet/IP.

    I just googled it, then searched on the Rockwell website and did not find any Sercos to Ethernet/IP conversion guides. Rockwell has a "Application Technique" here: http://literature.rockwellautomation.com/idc/groups/literature/documents/at/motion-at006_-en-p.pdf Not sure if it will help you though. 1 week is not a lot of time. Maybe the programming can be finished in 1 week but testing will probably take longer.
  7. Power flex 525 amps data

    Not sure if this is a good idea for your application or not, but I have used Automation Direct current transducers to read amp draw in the past: https://www.automationdirect.com/adc/Search/Search?fctype=adc.falcon.search.SearchFormCtrl&cmd=Search&searchquery=current+transducer&categoryId=0&TxnNumber=-1&searchqty=10#start=0
  8. Another Dumb newb question

    Looking at the first SCP: it looks like the actual Outdoor Temp will be between 32 degrees and 225 degrees. This looks Ok. But your raw values for your Thermocouple input look like they will be between -240 and 2000, this does not look right. Look at Joe E's post above where he explains how to set up the scaling in the TC module configuration. The minimum raw value is 0 and the max raw value is 7000 in his example.
  9. 1756-HSC Application Example

    Not sure if this will help but Rockwell has some sample code that uses the 1756-HSC here: http://search.rockwellautomation.com/search?client=samplecode&oe=UTF-8&ie=UTF-8&output=xml_no_dtd&proxystylesheet=samplecode&site=sample_code&getfields=*&lang=en&hl=en&sort=date:D:L:d1&wc=200&wc_mc=1&ud=1&filter=0&q=+1756-hsc&dnavs=+1756-hsc (It is Filename/ID 72311 in the Sample Code Library)
  10. PLC 5/15 to Kinetix 300

    I haven't done this before. I just did a google search and found this: http://www.prosoft-technology.com/Products/Gateways/EtherNet-IP/EtherNet-IP-to-Allen-Bradley-Remote-I-O-or-DH-Gateway It says: "Drive: This mode supports upgrading legacy Allen Bradley drives on Remote I/O to new EtherNet/IP enabled drives. No changes to PLC code required Supports up to 4 EtherNet/IP drives Configurable with 1/4, 1/2 and full rack addressing Supports all PowerFlex drives on EtherNet/IP " I did use some other hardware from Prosoft and their user manuals and phone tech support were pretty good. Hope this helps.

  12. Another Dumb newb question

    You can download the SCP instruction from Rockwell: see KB Tech note 38090 It says it works for RSLogix 5000 version 16 project or greater. I've used it myself in RSLogix5000 v20 and Studio5000 v30 and it works fine. Looks like JRoss uses something like this too.

    This is how I do it too
  14. Studio 5000 Task Monitor Comms IO Monitor

    Interesting, last week a Rockwell representative came to my company to do a presentation and said the L8x controllers were "coming soon" but did not give an exact date. (This was in the Northeast US)
  15. Studio 5000 Task Monitor Comms IO Monitor

    I've never used this before, but I found this document online: https://www.rockwellautomation.com/resources/downloads/rockwellautomation/pdf/solutions/integrated-architecture/LogixTaskMonitorInstruction.pdf
