  1. FactoryTalk SE Visibility Question

    {[PLC]Test_DINT} < 3 Notice the brackets. The only bug would be the 'Check Syntax' returns 'Valid' when it is not.
  2. CJ1M-CPU13-ETN Connection Issue

    Apparently it has been too long ago for me. I just looked up that old project. Michael is correct. He usually is!
  3. CJ1M-CPU13-ETN Connection Issue

    I know of no other method to translate than to do as you are doing. One by one. To switch then languages, go to Edit > IO Comment. Here you can input up to 16 different comments for each address. Use the 'Switch' button to set your Display Target. Are you sure the SCU41-V1 has a program in it? What is connected to it? Is it using a custom protocol? The settings are stored with the CX Programmer project. Be sure to chose 'Unit Setup' then 'Transfer[Unit to PC]. If the system is utilizing a custom protocol then it was developed using CX Protocol. CX Integrator will be used to upload/download, to/from the SCU-41-V1. I haven't done this in a very long time. When I did, I called an Omron expert to help me with the procedure. I'm sure someone here can help if it is necessary.
  4. CJ1M-CPU13-ETN Connection Issue

    Thanks for the feedback. Did you use FINS/Ethernet or Serial connection?
  5. PC-PLC CP1E - USB-to-SERIAL cable

    Yes, that' correct.
  6. PC-PLC CP1E - USB-to-SERIAL cable

    It should be in the appendix section of the CP1E manual, downloads section here at MrPLC, or check this post: The Host Link cable is the same for nearly all  Omron PLC serial ports. If fact, most refer to them as Host Link ports. Default settings are 9600, E,7,2.
  7. PC-PLC CP1E - USB-to-SERIAL cable

    What cable do you have connected from your USB-Serial adapter to the PLC? You cannot connect directly to the PLC serial port. You'll need a Host Link cable. You can make this yourself.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. FWRIT Question

    Can you post your ladder code? Or, try this example.
  11. 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.
  12. Omron USB driver for windows 10

    What cable do you have? What device are you trying to connect to?
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
