  1. RS5000-Firmware Not correct

    I appreciate all the input I am downloading the version I need now I'm glad I didn't update the plc firmware before reading a little first I have seen where others have talked about wiping their programs and that would be a long ending day for sure. Its definite that I need either a external or a new main i'm going to weigh my options on that one. I have cx-one, sysmac studio, robot studio(abb),rs500, rs5000(i'm going to try and get most of the versions after this), alot of different printer software, keyence vision systems software...ect... its getting a little tight lol
  2. RS5000-Firmware Not correct

    So do I need to install the entire software again? Reason I'm asking is its like 2G and didn't want to take up most of my hard drive ... I have a friend that has rs5000 and his has 2 differnet versions when it boots up and in his (about) under the firmware version is shows like 5 different firmware versions. My rs5000 just has version 20.5 on bootup and a firmware of 20v and 32v so your saying I need to install rs5000 version 30.01.02? I've never had to deal with anything like this I have always used omron .... and occasional rs500.  
  3. RS5000-Firmware Not correct

    I am having some trouble connecting to a 1769-L24ER-QBFC1B. Granted I just installed RS5000 Version 20.5 I have never connected with it before. I set up a driver in Links and connect to the plc and when I open Rs5000 and go to upload it says that firmware in the plc is not supported by the software... Its says that the plc has a 30.11 firmware... I don't really want to have to upgrade and downgrade everytime I connect to a different Plc.. what do I need to do? I tried going online and downloading the 30.11 firmware from the rockwell site but when i went to upgrade it in rs5000 it said it was going to upgrade the plc from 30.11 to 30.11.27.....So I didn't go through with it..
  4. Can not set a password

  5. Can not set a password

    All, I have had something go wrong with my cx-designer. I was building a hmi project and using command buttons to switch between screens. I have always had the option to select a password in the command button properties. For some reason I don't have that option on it anymore. I was programming on a ns15 and thought it was just that hmi for some reason like a version problem but I pulled some old programs that I have set passwords on certain features and low and behold still no option. Have I clicked something? If nothing else how do I reset my default with out running a restore through cx-one. Also i will mentions its not just the password tab I only have 3 tabs on my properties and its just apperance and label tabs any help is appreciated.
  6. communication plc to hmi

    I am using a omron cj2m plc with a ns touchscreen I have set these up with a switch via ethernet ip but I am not wanting to use a switch on this particular project (from plc to hmi one ethernet cable) from my understanding it has to be a different cable other than a (standard A) cable can some one give me pinout on a cable that will work with what I am doing.  Thanks in advance.

  14. How to operate devices with 220 acv power supply?

    I'm with them I would defiantly wire the output to a relay coil with a normally open leg of 220v if your output burns out regarding to the amperage of the fan that's more aggravating to deal with for me than swapping out a relay
