  1. Omron USB driver for windows 10

    What cable do you have? What device are you trying to connect to?
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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. 
  6. 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.
  7. 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.  
  8. Starting with Omron CX-P

    You can change the Program Check Options under the PLC menu.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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'.
  12. Can not set a password

    Can you post a screen shot?
  13. Connection with a CPM2A PLC

    I was unaware of the Chinese model "E". Did you try the Auto Online > Direct Online feature in CX Programmer using the CIF01 cable? Is the HMI an Omron? If so, it's possible the 9 pin port may be set to NT Link and you will not be able to connect CX Programmer.  
  14. Connection with a CPM2A PLC

    This is referring to the 9 Pin port. Did you try this? Be sure to find the correct cable. The HMI cable will not work with CX Programmer.
  15. In the PLC Settings, there is a Startup tab where you can change the Mode the PLC will start with.
  16. Retained tags

    There are many ways. It depends on your application. Typically a retained tag will be a variable setting for your application. Example would be a speed setting for a VFD or a temperature setting. Typically they would be written to from an HMI. If the 'Initial Value' field is blank and there is no PLC code writing to this variable then the last setting value will be retained after power loss.
  17. Multiple word values in a union?

    If you don't want them to affect each other then create a Structure containing Union A and Union B. A Union is specifically designed to share the same memory locations.
  18. Can't modify memory

    The Transfer To PLC and Transfer From PLC are Offline (Monitor OFF) functions. If you are Online and write a 0 in the box, then you have already written to that memory location in real time. Be sure to save all your memory first.  
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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:  https://forum.arduino.cc/  
  23. 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.
  24. NA Button Confirmation message

    Use a standard Button and set the Events and Actions to 'ShowPage("My_PopUp_Screen").  
  25. 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.
