  5. CQM1

    http://www.edata.omron.com.au/eData/PLCs/CQM/W228-E1-08.pdf You can change the PC Setup area.  See  1-1-1 Changing the PC Setup  in the above manual. There is no conversion utility that I know that will convert the Omron to a Mitsubishi PLC. Regards, Garry
  6. Stripped down HMI Software

    https://sourceforge.net/projects/advancedhmi/ AdvancedHMI is free. It is written in VB.net and runs on visual studio.  Turn Visual Studio into a powerful HMI/SCADA development package by simply dragging and dropping, no coding required. DF1, Ethernet/IP for Allen Bradley PLC controllers, and many more drivers. Free Features Allen Bradley DF1 RS232 Driver Allen Bradley Ethernet/IP Driver for SLC,MicroLogix, PLC5, ControlLogix, and CompactLogix Beckhof TwinCAT Driver, ModbusTCP and ModbusRTU drivers Omron Drivers Drivers are accessible via VB or C# code Build an HMI in Visual Studio 2013-2017 Community (free) without writing any code Works with Visual Studio Community Edition Tested on Mono on Linux (except OPC and serial drivers) Even Works on the Raspberry Pi SCADA capable Regards, Garry

    http://www.plctalk.net/qanda/showthread.php?t=41661 The above thread may help you out. Regards, Garry

    https://sourceforge.net/projects/advancedhmi/ AdvancedHMI is free. It is written in VB.net and runs on visual studio.  Here is some information on the driver for  Allen Bradley Controlllogi. http://advancedhmi.com/documentation/index.php?title=EthernetIPforCLXCom Regards, Garry
  9. Closed loop

    Hi Tim, Is the position where you want it? If so then I would zero the current counter postilion.  (MODE CONTROL: INI(880))  If the error will be accumulative then I would use the PLS2(887) instruction with a specified target with the error built in.  Another way to look at it would be to zero the origin on a signal into the PLC. Regards, Garry
  10. Closed loop

    Hi Tim, I would try that suggestion to see if the unit runs.  Usually I use the  PLS2(887)  instruction. It will output the number of pulses that are required with the acceleration and deceleration rates. Regards, Garry
  11. Closed loop

    https://www.myomron.com/index.php?article=1474&action=kb The above article may help you out and show you the steps involved in getting your application going. Here is some general information on programming the CP1H. http://accautomation.ca/omron-cp1h-system-hardware/ https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3y71jAPOdZD6WfrdjilDKMWXTStphw2Y Hope this helps you out.

  12. Connect FX1N-60MR to SCADA

    The above thread will show you how to use modbus on your PLC. Regards, Garry
  13. You might want to look at AdvancedHMI to get information out of your PLC. This is a free software that can downloaded at the following URL: https://sourceforge.net/projects/advancedhmi/ It already has the Allen Bradley Ethernet/IP Driver written for SLC,MicroLogix, PLC5, ControlLogix, and CompactLogix. AdvancedHMI was written in VB.Net and runs on Visual Studio. This means you can use your C programming within visual studio. Here is some more information on AdvancedHMI and the AB Ethernet IP driver: http://www.plctalk.net/qanda/showthread.php?t=51758 Hope this helps you out. Regards, Garry
  14. Connect FX1N-60MR to SCADA

    If you can get a Ethernet or Serial port on the unit then you can communicate Modbus TCP (Ethernet) or Modbus RTU (Serial). A computer running software such as AdvancedHMI has drivers already written that can get the information out of the PLC using the Modbus protocol.  AdvancedHMI is a free download that was written in VB.Net and runs on Visual Studio. This makes it an ideal way to communicate to databases. https://sourceforge.net/projects/advancedhmi/ Regards, Garry
  15. CP1E RS232 communication to my weighing

    http://www.plctalk.net/qanda/showthread.php?t=98820 You are simply receiving ASCII characters on the RS232 port. This is similar to a barcode scanner input. See the above thread. Hope this helps you out. Regards, Garry
