  1. OMRON ODD or EVEN value

    On the older units, use a move to a HR register first.  Nice solution Crossbow. Garry
  2. Block Compare Instruction

    The above thread may help you out. Regards, Garry
  3. ControlLogix DLL File

    http://literature.rockwellautomation.com/idc/groups/literature/documents/rm/1756-rm003_-en-p.pdf Jump to External Routine (JXR)  -  This information applies to the SoftLogix 5800 controller only Page 612 in the above manual. Regards, Garry

  5. Who Have Someone connected Citect with Omron CJ2M CPU32 ?

    https://www.citect.schneider-electric.com/forum/showthread.php?p=35843 http://proscada.ru/ctkbase.en/articles/q2231.html http://www.plctalk.net/qanda/showthread.php?t=72805 The above links may help you out. Regards, Garry
  6. Connecting 4 PLCS to One PC and CX-supervisor

    What are the exact model numbers of the C1JM PLCs? What kind of ports do you have available? You have two basic choices, serial (RS485 / RS422 ) or Ethernet (RJ45). Serial communications: The unit number of the PLC serial will determine the address on the network. (Make sure that they are all different numbers. Default is 00) This is a master / slave communication only. Only one device can be communicating on the network at a time. Ethernet Communications: The IP address will determine the address on the network. Multiple communications can happen at the same time. Information can be shared between the controllers. http://www.ia.omron.com/products/category/automation-systems/programmable-controllers/cj1/cpu-bus-units/index.html Start off by connecting one of the units up and testing communication using cx-programmer. You will then see if your converters will work or not.  Regards, Garry
  7. NT20S-ST121 - Permission Denied message

    http://www.edata.omron.com.au/eData/HMIs/NT/V020-E1-04.pdf Since the error does not appear in the manual,  I would  contact your OMRON service center. Regards, Garry
  8. OMRON Sysmac CPMA

    The COM point refers to a common point for the discrete input signal. It can be either negative or positive in this Omron controller. Refer to the wiring diagrams in the manuals above. Here is some wiring examples: http://accautomation.ca/heres-a-quick-way-to-wire-npn-and-pnp-devices/ Regards, Garry
  9. Omron CJ1M HMI

    https://www.progea.com/io-driver-list-2/ You would use the Omron Fins Ethernet driver. You will need an Ethernet port on the PLC. Regards, Garry
  10. OMRON Sysmac CPMA

    You are looking for the Operation Manual of the unit. This will show you the wiring diagrams. Here is the one for the CPM1A: https://assets.omron.eu/downloads/manual/en/w317_cpm1a_operation_manual_en.pdf Section 3 - Installation and Wiring Note: The Programming manuals will have the information for the instructions. Regards, Garry
  11. Beginner PLC Project

    I would look at Factory IO for some projects. https://factoryio.com/ There is a free evaluation period. This works well with the free Do-More designer software which has a simulator. Here are some examples: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3y71jAPOdZCbC-2roZpqqBIJkcEI_s1n Here are some other sample programs: http://accautomation.ca/building-a-plc-program-that-you-can-be-proud-of-part-1/ This series takes you through using discrete inputs and outputs to control traffic lights and cylinders. As we progress we introduce additional methods to solve logic. We look at sequencers in a new way and learn how to write programs to allow users to teach the new sequence. Hope this helps you out. Regards, Garry  
  12. Question about chip PLC

    What about using just a Click PLC from automation direct.  https://www.automationdirect.com/adc/Overview/Catalog/Programmable_Controllers/CLICK_Series_PLCs_(Stackable_Micro_Brick) Password protection: https://www.automationdirect.com/microsites/clickplcs/click-help/Content/062.htm Just a thought.

  15. That is a strange error. Thanks for the update. Garry
  16. Little HMI for Control Logix

    https://cdn.automationdirect.com/static/specs/ea3t4cl.pdf The C-More Micro HMI Panel will work.   Here is the link for the entire family: https://www.automationdirect.com/adc/Shopping/Catalog/HMI_(Human_Machine_Interface)/C-more_Micro_Panels Regards, Garry
  17. Symbolic addressing in omron

  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. Heater control

    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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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.
