    Hi, thanks for the comments. This was all I saved when I was on site last week. Does this help? (attached)
  3. Siemens 1200 going into STOP mode

    Dear All,   Hello everyone! Been a few years since posting on this forum but I have a question and though that one of you might be able to help. We have a Siemens 1200 on a ship and every now and again the PLC goes into STOP mode. I'm not sure the reason why it does this but I believe it may be due to a power outage or power surge, maybe it think that a card is not present or something. In any case, it means I have to go and visit the ship, plug in my TIA Portal V12, go to online and click RUN CPU. My question, is, is there a way to program the PLC so that under no circumstance the CPU will go into STOP mode? Can I maybe use a OB to force it to always stay in RUN mode even if it sees hardware errors? Thanks for any input. Cheers, Ben

  6. Hi all. This is my first post here. I am trying to display a number in a register with at least 10 decimal places as a floating point number. The maximum dp's I can get is 8 (eg: 0.12345679 - as shown in the picture). The plc I am using is a Logix5572. I think I may need a 64 bit register to do this but not sure. I don't know if ths is a very trival task, or if it is even possible. Any advice on how to do this would be very useful. Many thanks in advance. Ben
