  1. Dear All, thanks for the replies!
  2. Dear All, The question looks like simple but I cannot resolve it... I have NX1P2 PLC ver 1.16 I use SysmacStudio v1.18, and it "knows" only NX1P2 ver.1.13 and 1.14. Is it possible to add also ver. 1.16 to SysmacStudio hardware catalog? Also, if I select 1.14 I can actually program my PLC (which is of ver.1.16). If I do just like this do I face any problem in the future?   Thanks!
  3. CP1H + CIF12 custom protocol

    Thanks for the answers!
  4. CP1H + CIF12 custom protocol

    Dear All, could you please give a tip about CP1H usage, I've actually never used it I need to have a PLC with 2xRS485 ports and need to implement customzed protocols (1 master and 1 slave). Please prompt, if I take CP1H-XA40D and install 2 cards CP1W-CIF12 can I do this? Also, please help me to make sure that CP1H can be programmed with CX-Programmer only (no SysmacStudio support), and I can use text editor within CX-Programmer for CP1H soft development (don't like graphical editors) Thank you!
  5. Another question regarding NA + SysMac Studio Is there any way to run NA simulation in SysMac Studio so that simulated NA connects to the real PLC?  I've only found the mode where simulated NA connects to the simulated PLC, and this works. But how do I connect the simulated NA to a real PLC? Again, this is a common feature to all the HMI editors. CX-Designer supported this with NSs, and NB-Designer supported this with NBs. But here I can't fInd it. Thanx.
  6. IO_Rack, thanks again!
  7. IO_Rack, thank you! I would never find this out by myself )
  8. Thank you, guys! Listbox unfortunately doesn't let to change the layout, and always grey when disabled, and always has frame and scrolls, so I couldn't use ut Created Global Subroutine acc to innoaloe's tip - thanks! Also this lets to change the color of string - which is also needed Also checked with creating auxiliary string variable inside PLC - works good as well PS My question was mainly because I just couldn't believe this feature is absent. Thought I just couldn't find it, but.... (( But it was lack of this feature on NS as well and same appears with NA... I like NB Omron panels. Consider them just as "normal", all common features are presented, price is pretty good. The only restriction - 10" is the max. Just pity! Only due to this I just HAD to use NA. NA is VERY expensive and yet VERY inconvenient for me. Same were NS panels for me - expensive and inconvenient.
  9. innoaloe, thank you! >>  Latest Omron CX-Supervisor (V3) already provide connection to NJ OK, but does it provide any mean to read data from it with external application? >>  Omron NJ-DB Series CPU which provides direct database connectivity Just afraid of this approach. The DB is existing plant DB, keeping already lots of information, having it's admin and respectieve client software. So I consider first that I provide necessary data and interfaces to read this data for the DB supporting people. So the basic solution I would propose to customer I would have SCADA for my system monitoring and any interfaces for external connection to my SCADA or to my OPC. Better directly  to OPC for better data rate (I hope). Could you please confirm that CX-Supervisor V3 Runtime and Sysmac Gateway is enough for that?
  10. Dear Colleagues, working with NA, can't find the following, very common to all HMIs feature: got Var1:INT within PLC. On the HMI want to create a string list (like 0= Sunday, 1 = Monday , 2 = Tuesday etc.) and have a respective string on the HMI changing depending on Var1 vaue. How do I do that? Thank you!  
  11. Dear Colleagues, could someone give a general tip what is the proper approach to the following task The customer wants to install up to 5 cameras FH and to collect data from cameras into his database (DB). Cameras are proposed to be used to inspect the web, being rewinded into rolls. The web (roll) has many defects (say roll is 500 m and there could be 100 defect points on the web within the roll). So the camera is to make 100 shots and the pictures must fall into to the existing DB, and in that DB the pictures are to be connected to the certain roll. At any time the inspector can come into DB, find a roll say #12345 which has been produced a month ago and realize, that roll #12345 has defects at points 12 m, 23m, 45m, etc. What is the correct approach for this task? I thnk about the following FH controllers -> via Ethernet IP -> NJ PLC -> via Ethernet IP -> Kepware OPC Server -> any SCADA for remote monitoring/control -> via COM/OLE -> customers's client which takes data from OPC or SCADA and puts into his DB. Does this approach make sense? Can there be better solution? My questions: 1. Does Kepware OPC Server provide COM/OLE interfaces for the external clients to exchange data? 2. Does Omron Supervisor SCADA provide COM/OLE interfaces for the external clients to exchange data? 3. If 2 = NO, then - could you please prompt any SCADA that can connect to  Omron NJ and provides COM/OLE interfaces for the external clients to exchange data? Many thanks, any comments are appreciated!
  12. NJ and IEEE 754 float

    innoaloe, thank you so much! 24-bit IEEE has only 15 bit mantissa ( 1 bit sign + 8 bit exponent + 15 bit mantissa), it's just less accurate than 32-bit IEEE, which has 23-bit mantissa  
  13. Dear Colleagues, could you please give a tip for the following Via RS485 non-standard protocol I receive from a slave device some data which is presented as IEEE754 24-bit float. Moreover I receive a byte array E.g. I receive byte[0] = 0x41 byte[1] = 0xF0 byte[2] = 0x00, which is IEEE754 representation of 30.00 So how do I obtain the REAL value from byte array? Searched through Instructions Reference Manual and didn't find no suitable instructions. No word about conversion byte array to IEEE754 float Thanks!
