  1. https://accautomation.ca/omron-cp1h-numbering-systems-and-addressing/ The above will explain the numbering systems in the Omron CP1H series. This would be similar to all of the PLC's in this CP1 Series. Here is a link to the entire CP1H Series. https://accautomation.ca/series/omron-plc-cp1h-series/ Hope this helps you out. Regards, Garry

  3. Cx- Programer Elapsed time

    What is the accuracy you are looking to achieve? Depending on the PLC you can handle this a couple of ways. 1 - set the scan time and then count the number of scans. 2 - add the scan time every cycle  Regards, Garry

  7. Xinjie/Mitsubishi PLC TRD/TWR

    Typically you would organize the data in the PLC and the HMI would display the data.  Each time the machine starts, then capture the real-time data and store in a register. You can also do the same thing for when the machine stops. You would then need to index your register to store the next value(s). You will need to know how big of an area you are going to need in the PLC. It appears that you are only going to store events and not do any calculation on the data. Regards, Garry  
  8. Xinjie/Mitsubishi PLC TRD/TWR

    The first thing that you will decide is exactly what you want and where? Example: Shift = 8 hours = 480 minutes = 28800 seconds  Let's assume a one second unit of measure. ON Time for Shift = 20000 seconds (Register Location?) OFF Time for Shift = 8800 seconds (Register Location?) Once the basic information is stored per shift then calculation can be made for the shift. Uptime = 69.44%   If you are looking just to log the events with time and date, then using the real-time clock would be beneficial. This can be done at specific intervals like every second or minute or just when the event occurs. Example Output Every Minute 03/13/19 09:30:00 - Machine ON - Parameters A, B, C - Widgets Made 03/13/19 09:31:00 - Machine ON - Parameters A, B, C - Widgets Made 03/13/19 09:32:00 - Machine ON - Parameters A, B, C - Widgets Made 03/13/19 09:33:00 - Machine ON - Parameters A, B, C - Widgets Made ETC. Example Output for Event of Machine ON 03/13/19 09:30:00 - Machine ON - Parameters A, B, C - Widgets Made 03/13/19 09:45:10 - Machine OFF - Parameters A, B, C - Widgets Made 03/13/19 09:47:33 - Machine ON - Parameters A, B, C - Widgets Made ETC. You must begin with the end in mind. This post may help you out. https://accautomation.ca/now-you-can-have-robust-data-logging-for-free-part-1/ Regards, Garry

  10. Ethercat recovery after power down

    " Modular machines or tool changers require network segments or individual nodes to be connected and disconnected during operation. EtherCAT slave controllers already include the basis for this Hot Connect feature. If a neighboring station is removed, then the port is automatically closed so the rest of the network can continue to operate without interference. Very short detection times <15µs guarantee a smooth changeover" https://www.ethercat.org/pdf/english/ETG_Brochure_EN.pdf The above may help you out. Regards, Garry
  11. Which plc is the best?

    What you want to do is to look at the PLC’s that are being used in your area. What manufacturer is the most common? What are the models that they are using? What programming language is being used? This will help to ensure that the PLC that you install, is supported both by the manufacturer and support personnel throughout its life.  Just some thoughts. Regards, Garry

    Yes, the good old days. What about the cassette tape backups! Omron FIT (Factory Intelligent Terminal) was the portable programming device. Google Pictures of the Omron FIT10 You must be at this awhile to gtsuport!

    Yes, I remember programming them before the K series arrived.  Great PLC for the time. Garry
