  1. Double check Motoman's definition of Input and Output instance values. Generally the Inputs and Outputs are referred to from the Master's (NX) perspective. If this is the case then you have them reversed.
  2. FB's

    The short answer is, the motion instructions will execute with a differential pulse. So if you have a sequence that is latching its steps, then using the differential pulse will execute them one at a time. If you show us your example then we may be able to give you a clearer solution.
  3. Zebra ZT230 Ethernet/IP

    It doesn't appear they are Ethernet/IP compatible. Generally, the device manufacturers will distribute the EDS files if they are available.
  4. PT100 on Arduino Mega Industrial Shields PLC

    I've seen some Arduino questions here before but I'm positive you'll get better answers here:  
  5. Your value is being added, +B (404), in BCD format. Decimal &16 is the same as BCD #10. You just need to view it correctly. From the Menu, click View > Monitoring Data Type > Monitor in Hex.
  6. NA Button Confirmation message

    Use a standard Button and set the Events and Actions to 'ShowPage("My_PopUp_Screen").  
  7. Simple programming cable for Mitsubishi FX

      The section on the left side is an adaptor for the newer PLCs. You only need the cable on the right side. It is the correct gender. There is a converter inside the 25 pin hood. A direct (Pin to Pin) connection will NOT work.
  8. Simple programming cable for Mitsubishi FX

    This image is found on page 4 of this post. As you can see, you will need electronic conversion between the 25 pin and the 9 pin. This is why your direct connection is not working.
  9. EDS files contain a lot of information necessary to identify the device and make the connection. I'm not sure if tag information is omitted in the ODVA standard or simply not required. Have a look at Appendix A of this document: Allen Bradley does a lot of non ODVA functions. They have been supporting EIP for a long time and most vendors test and adjust for them.  
  10. You cannot use an address for NUMBER. It is intended for literal values only. The number type will be determined by the method in which you precede the constant value. (#, &, +, -).  A REAL value will be preceded by a "+" or "-" and contain a ".".
  11. OMRON Sysmac CPMA

    This is a very broad question. Are you having trouble wiring the COM port, the Inputs or the Outputs? Is this a CPM1A or CPM2A? The programming manual is the same for both:    
  12. Does Omron CP1E support Ethernet/IP?

    CP1E does not support EtherNet/IP.  
  13. CJ2 Omron PLC support absolute or symbolic adress?

    No. The CJ2 will support EtherNet/IP with either Addresses or Symbols.
  14. subtracting the real value

    You should show us what is not working.
