  1. rsView32 Works

    If I remember correctly, yes you can. Your changes will not take affect until you restart the runtime. Also, there are separate licenses for runtime and development.
  2. CJ1M-CPU13-ETN Connection Issue

    FINS is more difficult. At least I think so. To the best of my knowledge, you'll need to know the IP address, Network address and Node address to connect. Your Host Link cable pinout looks correct. This is probably going to be your most dependable option with a PLC in which you do not know the settings.
  3. FWRIT Question

    Can you post your ladder code? Or, try this example.
  4. CJ1M-CPU13-ETN Connection Issue

    You cannot connect via Ethernet/IP. This is an older PLC and does not support this protocol.  If you want to connect via Ethernet port then you will have to use FINS. For the Peripheral port (Serial - Toolbus), make sure DIP Switch 4 is set to OFF. Alternatively, you may use the 9 Pin Serial port. Set DIP Switch 5 to ON and this will force the PLC to use Host Link, 9600, 7,E,2. You'll need to make a Host Link cable.
  5. Omron USB driver for windows 10

    What cable do you have? What device are you trying to connect to?
  6. Ethernet/IP setting IP of devices

    Have you tried using a cross over cable from your encoder to the switch? I would be very surprised if that works but it sounds like the encoder may require it.
  7. Ethernet/IP setting IP of devices

    Omron does not have a BOOTP utility. Any manufacturer's BOOTP utility will work with any Ethernet/IP device. I'm not sure if AB has improved their BOOTP but was very quirky last time I used it. I like the Keyence IP Setting Tool. Keyence IP Setting Tool
  8. Multiple encoders to CP1L-60DT-A

    The CP1L-M60DT-A has 4 High Speed Counter inputs. If I counted correctly you need 4 encoders total, correct? The HSC inputs that are currently occupied with standard inputs can be moved to an expansion card. CP1W-8ED.
  9. Declare an Alarme

    From the PT menu, select Alarm/Event Setting... Alarms are retained in the PT. View them with the Alarm/Event Summary&History object. I didn't realize it had an archive function but I just tested it. You can archive from the PT System Menu. Goto the Initialize tab. From here you can save various items to a CF card. 
  10. 2 PV800s controlling one PLC

    One HMI is commanding the bit to be OFF and the other HMI is commanding the same bit to be ON. The general convention would be to use two separate bits. One bit for the Push Button (Value) and one for the Indication (Indicator). Further more, you may want to perform your 'Maintained' condition in the PLC.
  11. Error on the Rung - Quick Question

    This is one of the less intuitive functions in CX Programmer. Place the cursor as shown in the picture below then perform Insert > Function Block Parameter.  
  12. Starting with Omron CX-P

    You can change the Program Check Options under the PLC menu.
  13. Keyence plc's

    KV series PLC's are not supported in the US. They do have English software. Download KV Studio Trial Version from their website. If the PLC is very old then you may have to contact your local Keyence representative and ask them for a copy of Ladder Builder.
  14. unknown text

    I'm not aware of any setting in CX Programmer for language. I had this problem with Japanese text. If you have the language installed on your PC then you can export the comments and change them in MS Excel.
  15. Starting with Omron CX-P

    This is correct. Siemens precedes a memory location with the data type. Omron precedes it with the type of memory. 'CIO' will be the physical I/O. Anything out of range of the physical I/O may be freely used. 'A' memory is generally used for system memory. (Always ON, Clock Pulses, instruction feedback, etc...) 'W' memory is yours. This is what you may freely use for most of your programming. 'D' is retentive. Generally used in WORDS. (INT, DINT, REAL, etc...) 'H' is retentive. Generally used as bits. May be used as WORDS. 'E' is retentive. It extends 'D'. The amount will be determined by the CPU type you purchase.    I believe the manuals that come installed are pretty good. When I'm programming, I tend to right click on an instruction and choose 'Instruction Help'.
