  1. How can I do a simple sequence step delay

    Yeah it's a 314, so probably same thing as the 315...ok, good to know, thanks.
  2. Pop up login screen editing

    Checked for that, couldn't find anything. If this is some default system pop-up, then how can I change the text from Spanish to English? That's all I really need to do.
  3. How can I do a simple sequence step delay

    Doesn't like it, must be a V11 thing. Thanks for trying though!
  4. Pop up login screen editing

    Where/how do I access this pop up login screen to make changes to it? TIA Portal V11 Thanks!
  5. How can I do a simple sequence step delay

    Message: This use of IEC timers / IEC counters is not possible in this target system See my recent post above: I had to rearrange the logic so that the timer and the move where on two separate networks, the timer also needed an output after it. By the way, this is TIA Portal Version 11, maybe this issue has been resolved since then?
  6. How can I do a simple sequence step delay

    Neither will work, I could get nothing in the same network to work, someone else suggested doing it in two networks, that finally worked for me.    
  7. No problem doing this in Studio 5000. Must have tried this 5 different ways. How can I do this? Shouldn't be this difficult. Sorry, a little frustrated as you can see.
  8. Unable to install version 11

    Got this from Siemens support, this took care of the problem: Please do a Reboot prior to Installing further Programs Historically the 'please do a re-boot before installing' message would come up almost immediately after the install CD was inserted. We would, remove DVD, delete the pendingfilerenameoperation key, not reboot, insert DVD and install would be OK. Increasingly, I have seen the message "please reboot, but also a mention of data on computer that needs to be deleted" and this message appears a little further on in the installation. In these cases, on this message window there is a 'Back' button, have customer hit "Back" . Leave the DVD in the drive, but go delete the pendingfilerenameoperation key now, 1.   Open the registry editor via menu "Start > Run" and the command "regedit". 2.   Browse to path "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager " 3.   With Session Manager selected. In the right-hand panel of registry editor, select "PendingFileRenameOperations" and delete it. then hit the 'Next' button. I think the next few screens are: 1) name and company info 2) typical, minimum, custom installation and then 3) big 5 language selection. Once you get to these screens, install should be OK.
  9. Unable to install version 11

    I'm having an issue that when I start the install for TIA Portal Version 11 I get a message that says, "You must restart your computer before you can run setup. Do you want to reboot your computer now?" I've said yes, it will reboot and the same message will come up again automatically. I've tried rebooting several times and nothing.  I've said no to the reboot and it says, "You cannot continue without rebooting. Please reboot the computer yourself." Any thoughts on this? Thanks
  10. So evidently they are not currently doing data collection(automated), in excel or otherwise. Turns out they are just entering data in Excel manually on this "Main" terminal, the 6181.  And it's only running FTView ME.  I know, total waste. But they are requesting of us, for this project, to have  automated data collection. kaiser - I'm thinking we will probably go that route, I'll message you for the info, much appreciated.
  11. They are actually using the 6181, 1900P(PC based) I wonder if this is because they have videos that they play through FactoryTalk?
  12. Sorry, I should have mentioned that they have existing equipment and they want this to have the same setup.   I just got some of their existing equipment programs, attached is a screen shot(Main HMI).  I didn't realize you could do this. They configured communication with all  the PLC's into FactoryTalk and are using the tags in the "Main" HMI to show information from each PLC.  Does anyone know if I need anything special to be able to do this?  
  13. I have a project coming up that will have multiple stations, each station will run independently with it's own PLC.  But the customer wants a "Main" HMI/Computer that can be used to view production info of each station, and also record this info in Excel. I'm sure this is possible, just not sure the best ways of accomplishing this and what software, besides excel,  Studio 5000 and FactoryTalk, to use.  Or maybe that's all I will need? I don't need detailed info as to how to do everything, I can work on figuring that out on my own. I'm just hoping someone can point me in the best direction. Thanks!
  14. Kinetix 300 Faults to PLC

    Really?  The person who asked me to post this question said he could not find anything like that, he definitely has the AOP loaded too.  Interesting, do you happen to know what tags?
  15. Kinetix 300 Faults to PLC

    Is it possible to get the specific faults from the Kinetix 300 to the PLC (Compact Logix)?
