  1. G9SP Configurator

    There is no such CD program that ships with the G9SP unit. What Omron meant is that the serial number comes with the CD, should you buy the software. Of course entering the numbers printed on the G9SP unit won't work. It was never a free software. Faster way is (maybe) to ask Omron field engineers to come to the site... with charges of course...  
  2. Omron Servo Encoder

    I don't understand... you can use PRV2 for the HSC0. Why can't you use it on the HSC1 as well?
  3. C-mode hostlink library for NJ/NX1P or CP1L

    Nice find. The manual states that the FB not only supporting DM, but IR, HR, and LR registers as well.
  4. Loading screen on NA

    @Artz It's been two weeks since you asked, so I don't know whether this is still needed or not... But NA does allow you to run multiple Threads as you said. In this post below, I demonstrated how to run a secondary thread which is doing some background processing. The example is just a counter, but you'll get the idea. http://forums.mrplc.com/index.php?/topic/35055-anyone-have-much-experience-creating-iags/&do=findComment&comment=163685 So in your case the Main Thread is the user interface that will display the hourglass, and then you run a secondary thread which will run the time intensive subroutine.
  5. At one time, I even need to edit an EDS file of a certain 3rd party vendor (using the good old notepad). What I found in that EDS file is that there are multiple definitions of a certain ESI Tag (can't remember which one) But the point is, TwinCAT seems to support a more dynamic ESI file definition compared to Sysmac Studio. And yes, not all ESI files are tested to be working with Sysmac Studio
  6. What is the benefit of using Structured programming?

    Self-preferences aside, in the end it's about choosing the right tool for the right job. For example, playing with sequences and interlocks are easier using ladder. Doing Maths and data shifting are easier using structured text. Most PLC with Structured Text functionality enables you to set specific address to be used for the local variables, also enables you to set initial values of those variables via the variable table. Aside from that you can set settings in the programmer so that only certain interval of variable addresses are allowed to be used for variables. I believe Mitsubishi's should be the same.
  7. Well... have you mapped the points to the NX701 global variables? The variables must be set to be Published in the Sysmac Studio, and you need to run Sysmac Gateway software in the same computer so CX-Supervisor can find it (should come along with the installation of CX-Supervisor) Having another HMI connecting to the said PLC won't be an issue.
  8. CJ1M-CPU13-ETN Connection Issue

    You still need CX-P to do "actual" connection, where you can see the ladders and everything else. EtherWay at it's best can just help you to test whether the communication is possible or not. If using EtherWay is possible, then you need to replicate the settings used in EtherWay to your connection settings in CX-P. For example if EtherWay via UDP is possible, that means using the "Ethernet" (not Ethernet(FINS/TCP) or Ethernet/IP) communication method in CX-P is possible with the settings : Net = DNA Node = DA1 Unit = DA2
  9. Lost Data Memory and SCU Settings

    The only fix you can do to ensure operation even without battery, is to set the D Memory area which is used for SCU settings on the programs First_Cycle (using P_FirstCycle at the topmost ladder). That said, you need to insert all settings properly.
  10. Servo System Basic Question

    I can only think about Parameter number 3.38 since that's the only place you can set something related to direction IMO...  
  11. CP1H-EX ?

    I've encountered this one before. This is indeed made for China only. If memory serves me right, you can try auto-connect to it using the "CP1L-E Node Online" button in CX-Programmer (next to the Auto-Online button). Another way, should you know it's FINS settings and  IP Address, is to create a new project with CP1H-X40 model as the base, but set the communication settings to Ethernet and set the settings accordingly.
  12. CJ1M-CPU13-ETN Connection Issue

    If your PLC IP Address really is 192.168.0.250, insert that to the "Remote IP" section in the EtherWay before attempting Connect. Following that, since your last octet of PLC IP Address is 250, set the DA1 column of the FINS Header part to FA (hex format of 250). Also, since your last octet of PC IP Address is 245, set the SA1 column of the FINS Header part to F5 (hex format of 245) Also rather than using TCP Mode, I'd say use the UDP mode first, since it is connectionless and easier to troubleshoot. @Michael Walsh EtherWAY is another tool developed by Omron France. I'm not sure whether that or MultiWay got deployed first though. https://www.support-omron.fr/logiciels/etherway/produit.php?ref=etherway
  13. CX-Supervisor improvement requests

    Just going to let it out here... : WHY CAN"T I RENAME MY PAGE????
  14. Sysmac Studio Improvement Request

    Simply said, we can't :D
  15. NX1P2 to Indusoft communication

    @lostcontrol Cannot really guess why, since I believe the error 64 is not a FINS specified error. Typically we debug FINS protocol error using MRES / SRES information returned by the master unit when the error occurred. It you can find that info from Indusoft, that'll be helpful.
  16. [SOLVED] Color Pallete Size Problem

    Hi again! Resolved the issue. Turns out the "Zoom" thingy didn't changed as I expected before, so I manually change it again to 100%. Tried opening CX-Supervisor again and it shows properly now. Still, I think it's an overlooked bug, since the Zooming error only occurred on that particular part of the application. The other components retain its render sizes in all zooming condition.
  17. Trying my luck to ask here, if anyone can help :D So I've started using CX-Supervisor v3.41 and found a very odd problem with the color palette, as shown in the picture below. As you can see, the palette size is abnormal that the Color Selector button is not visible anymore. This window is also not sizeable, so I cannot do anything to fix it. I never encountered such problem with v3.24 before. I confirmed this is not a screen resolution problem either since I've tried to change it. Anyone encountered same issue perhaps? Maybe someone know a workaround? Thank you
  18. [SOLVED] Color Pallete Size Problem

    Hi Berti, I did tried that Zoom thing too. It was at 175% before, but I toned it down to 100% already without different result. Do you have a same app version (3.41)? Is it look like this or is it normal?
  19. CJ1M-CPU13-ETN modbus

    The Terminal mode is just your other HyperTerminal like Putty. If you're receiving too many data bytes, try giving a Differential Up to the SEND Instruction, so it should be executed only once on each trigger.
  20. CJ1M-CPU13-ETN modbus

    Yes. Hardware-wise, the connector is indeed RS232C. But software wise, that port can only send certain Omron protocols, like Toolbus (it's default. Also called C-Mode in W342 manual I believe), Host Link, or Serial Gateway. It doesn't support No-Protocol RS-232C. You can, however, sends the Toolbus command using the very same SEND or RECV instructions to the BR. But then it will be the same issue with the FINS protocol, where the BR plc need to interpret the data
  21. CJ1M-CPU13-ETN modbus

  22. CJ1M-CPU13-ETN modbus

  23. CJ1M-CPU13-ETN modbus

    No, that's not possible. See the plc Settings under the peripheral port. You'll see that Rs232 does not exist as an option.
  24. CJ1M-CPU13-ETN modbus

    The SEND/RECV instructions doesn't require you to input IP Address of the target PLC, since UDP is an unconnected socket communication. But you need to specify Destination Node Address, which is the 4th digit of BR PLCs IP Address, considering both Omron and BR is on a same subnet. E.g. Omron IP is 192.168.250.1 and BR IP is 192.168.250.5, the Destination Node Address is set to 5 in that instruction. Still I'd say it's pretty troublesome to do.
  25. CJ1M-CPU13-ETN modbus

    Actualy you can, if the BR supports Udp socket. Just open a UDP port on BR side then send data from the omron plc using SEND or RECV instruction. The down side though, you need to manually process the Fins command sent by omron plc and generate proper fins response also to be sent back.
