  3. TrendGraph (Data Logging)

    https://www.myomron.com/index.php?action=kb&article=1639 The above link has the description for the Trend Graph: ' Trend Graph is linked to a data set and displays the values for analysis (coming soon) and User Alarms Viewer shows either current or historical information on alarms (see 'Introduction To NA Alarms' article). ' Regards, Garry  

    http://www.plctalk.net/qanda/showthread.php?t=120902 Same question.  You will need to connect each PLC hardware rs232 port to the MOXA separately.  They will have different pinouts for the rs232 ports. Regards, Garry

  6. Help Getting Started

    This is not an Omron NJ series, but here is a series on the Omron CP1H. https://accautomation.ca/series/omron-plc-cp1h-series/ I hope this will help you out. Regards, Garry

  8. With a 100msec pulse, I would just try a regular DC input for the signal and see what you get.  Part numbers would help on the flow meter, PLC and high-speed counter card if applicable.  Regards, Garry
  9. Failing Interposing Relays, and Varistors

    What you need to do is find out the inrush of the coils. I would contact the manufacturer or use their website to determine this value. The following information will help you to determine the inrush based on your equipment specifications. https://www.pacontrol.com/download/Solenoid%20Valves%20Engineering%20Information.pdf Once you have this rating, I would look for an interposing relay to handle the value. A Solid State could also be used. https://temcoindustrial.com/product-guides/contactors-and-overloads/solid-state-vs-electromechanical-relay Hope this helps you out. Regards,
  10. 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

  12. 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

  15. Moving Data Memory

    +1 gtsuport You must ensure that the processor that you are programming does not use this are for other items like DM Setup Area.  Regards, Garry
  16. 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  
  17. 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

  19. 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
  20. 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
