  2. Sysmac Studio Improvement Request

    In less than a week after upgrading to version 1.20, they released only one update file (Sysmac Studio version here in the US.
  3. Not sure how you would like to access it but have a look at the last post in this thread. There is a video that explains how to use MS Excel to view and modify the data.  
  4. 1.  I did the conversion myself and I received no errors or warnings. CX Programmer does a good job converting especially since there were no complex instructions used in the original program. I can understand your caution though. 2.  Concerning your variables... Do you know how to back up the memory? (HR, DM, etc...)
  5. read velocity from analog input

    I'm glad you got it working. Did you use one of the Function Blocks for Analog Scaling from the Mr. PLC Downloads section?
  6. read velocity from analog input

    Are you having trouble wiring the module? Are you having trouble configuring the module? Do you know how to scale the value in programming? What are the units? (Hz, %, FPM, CFM...) What is the range?
  7. How to set cx-designer to be offline?

    I'm not sure I've ever started NS / PLC simulation through CX Designer. It may be possible somehow. I've always started it from CX Programmer. Have both projects open at the same time. From CX Programmer choose Simulation > Start PLC - PT Integrated Simulation.
  8. I think that may work. I haven't tried it. The JMP/JME will disable the code in between them. (Code is not executed). Therefore HSPO may still function. The IL/ILC will disable the outputs. (Code is still executed). Outputs will be OFF. Try it and let us know.
  9. I took a brief look at the programs again. I think you are understanding the addressing OK. The PLC is making the decisions based on the screen number that is written (PT Control Area) from the PLC to the PT. In NTST, click on Tools > PT configuration... then click on the Control/Notify Area tab. The PLC can write a screen number into D00000 and the PT will switch to that screen. I do not have much time but I did follow D12.12 where it makes a decision based on Ch88 where it writes to D00000. Have a look at rung number 203 in the original PLC file. Be sure to look at the bits in Ch88. This looks fairly complex.
  10. NS HMI - Write Address and Display Address

    The Write and the Display addresses can be either Host PLC or HMI Internal. In most cases you'll be communicating with the PLC so a typical example would be Write address HOST3:W1.0 (maybe a Start Push Button). Then the Display address HOST3:W2.0 (maybe feedback for a Running Condition). The Display Address will change the Color/Shape of the button from its OFF state to its ON state when the machine is Running. The Write and Display addresses can be the same if you choose. In this case the Color/Shape would change only when the button is pressed. I think the Getting Started Guide is good. I find the NS is much easier to use than the NB. You can also do Integrated PLC-PT Simulation which works very well.
  11. analog inputs

    Here is a screen shot of the 'IO Table and Unit Setup' dialog box. The details are outlined in W345, section 2-5.
  12. omoron cx program

    Try your local Omron distributor. If you are interested in robotic control then have a look at the NJ series which uses Sysmac Studio. Information can be found here:  
  13. Thanks for posting your solution although I'm not sure I understand. I was thinking you wanted this: 1) AlarmViewer is displayed. 2) Select Alarm to trigger a new Pop Up with instructions. Are you displaying 2 AlarmViewers?
  14. This from page 4-20 in the NA Software Manual. It says they are called from Main Pages but I found you can call a second Pop Up when PageHidden happens on the first.
  15. Omron C200H - CPU01 Error

    I sent you a message with your converted NT program. The trick was to convert the NT21 to an NT31 using NTST. After the conversion, I saved it as an *.mmi. Then in CX One using the NTSeries Conversion Support Tool, I converted it to an NS5. The screens are different sizes so the graphics remain their original size in the upper left of the larger screen. It's not pretty but it should be functional. You can also perform a simulation with the NS5 and the CJ2.
