  1. Hi all I am setting up a batch tank system, I have 1 pump which can pump to six different tanks(via pneumatic actuated valves). This is my first go with a HMI, usually I would use a multiple position switch. Is it possible to make a six position selector switch with a HMI? I am using a AB Panel-View 800, has anyone done this before? Any help would be appreciated.
  2. Modbus AB Micro850 with Schneider Altivar Drive

    Thanks, that is the case, the AB Micro850 used a six letter code e.g 400001,  But the Schneider drives use codes like 16#2199 = 8601   So I am not sure how the two codes relate to each other?
  3. Hi all, I am trying to control and/or read values from Schneider Altivar12 VFDs. Via Modbus on a AB Micro850 PLC (using the Connected Components Workbench Software). There seems to be two ways to do this with the Micro850, either with messaging (using the msg_modbus instruction function block) or with the Modbus mapping feature. I have a list of the communication parameters (see attached fileATV12_Communication_parameters_BBV51917_1.4IE05b.xls ATV32 Communication parameters_a1.2ie03.xls) But I haven't had any experience with Modbus and I am not having any success. There is not very much documentation about how to do this, If anyone can help me who has done this or knows how to do it I would appreciate it.
