  1. FX3U-ENET connections

    Hi JanHrust. I did all the setting you have said. But without Fixed Buffer Communication: Procedure Exist (MC) it doesn't work (Connections are blinking and SCADA doesnt have connection to the PLC).  But in my efforts i've found that SCADA (MAPS and CITECT) only need 1 connection: TCP Unpassive Send OR Receive  Procedure Exist (MC) Disable Confirm and port. Before that i have been thinking SEND - for SCADA writing in PLC, and Receive for PLC giving data to SCADA. So i was wrong. If only 1 connection need - there is no need to go 2 SCADAs via same connection. Thank you for your advice.
  2. Maps alarm management

    Alarm management i've already described in my first and second posts in this topic. Why i want "like GT Designer"? Cause all the factory working on the HMIs and if i want to implement MAPS here first words about new alarm system will be: We want the same way like its working on HMIs. Real time with all of alarms in one list on one screen. Alarm management got 1 minute refresh time. And this is not what i am looking for. I am still looking maybe i can it do with EventViewer.
  3. Maps alarm management

    Ok. I'm adding AlarmViewer and choosing  defaultAlarmAgent  as alarm agent.  Now i will show you example of difference with one digital bit in MAPS and HMI (GT Designer). HMI (Screen is refreshing in real time) : 1. Digital = 0. - No messages on Alarm Screen. 2. Digital = 1 - (Occurrence) 16/08/18 09.02.32      Some comment             (Restored) --/--/-- --.--.-- 3 Digital = 0 - (Occurrence) 16/08/18 09.02.32      Some comment             (Restored) 16/08/18 09.03.32 4. Digital = 1 - (Occurrence) 16/08/18 10.02.32      Some comment             (Restored) --/--/-- --.--.--                          (Occurrence) 16/08/18 09.02.32      Some comment             (Restored) 16/08/18 09.03.32                            <-------Old message of same bit alarm is still on screen.  MAPS (Without Global Acknowledgement function) :  1. Digital = 0. - No messages on Alarm Screen. 2. Digital = 1 - (Alarm Time) 16/08/18 09.02.32      Some comment             *Red background*  3 Digital = 0 - No messages on Alarm Screen. 4. Digital = 1 - (Alarm Time) 16/08/18 10.02.32      Some comment             *Red background*                <-------No old message of same bit alarm is on screen.    With Global Acknowledgement function will be only one another phase when will be *Green Background* I hope you will get my idea. 
  4. FX3U-ENET connections

    I have been thinking about using OPC, but i never used it before. So at first i am trying to do this without OPC only with drivers within SCADAs.
  5. Maps alarm management

    Yes. Added 1 digital signal in Alarming. Alarm agent: defaultAlarmAgent. Added Alarmlist in route 0 and in the Event Logs: LOCAL. Alarm types: ON (i want to see when this bit is on and when its gone in one message). Route 0.  
  6. FX3U-ENET connections

    Hello. Thank for your advice, but i saw this manual when i have started set up connection between citect and fx3u and it cover only TCP/IP part of connection.
  7. Maps alarm management

    Hello. Yeah, i already have done it. They are changing values in real PLC.
  8. FX3U-ENET connections

    Hi, no problem, better late than never. First question i already figured out from some of the manual.  Main problem with second question i hadnt find UDP driver in MAPS (4) and in Citect (7.10) as well. 
  9. Maps alarm management

    Hello everyone.  I finally had some time for MAPS. So i've tried what JanHrust said. Dropped the the Eventviewer and add the datasourse from the Events list - "Adroit". This show all the events from MAPS (i still didnt figure out how to show only needed events) and only with manual update or 30s auto refresh time. And this is still not that thing i want from it. I want to create same alarmview like in GT Designer. Real time simple alarm list that got in itself Occurrence/Restored time and comment with showing only alarms/operator actions i added.  Maybe im doing something wrong and i will try to do a research on achieving my desired alarmview list in free time, but maybe someone will advice me something.
  10. FX3U-ENET connections

    I have so many questions on using UDP (never used before): 1. FX-ENET configuration - when you are changing TCP for UDP there will open 2 more setting: Target device IP and port. I have SCADA on 2 different PC (with different IPs) so which one i should write? And where i can check port that are SCADA using (Didnt see in MAPS or Citect this parameter)? 2. Drivers on SCADA side. At this moment i have FX TCP Driver in MAPS and MELSECNET1 in Citect. Should i change this cause i am using UDP now? 
  11. FX3U-ENET connections

    Hello everyone.  I've faced problem with the FX3U-ENET configuration. Enet module only have 4 MC connection at once. So i already have 2 Melsoft connection (GOT Panels) and 2 MC unpassive(read/send) for SCADA (Citect). Right now i need to add MAPS to this, but via connection that had given for Citect isnt working (Only one of them working at once). So is there any chance to connect 2 SCADA (Citect/Maps) via 1 connection (with read/send)?
  12. Maps alarm management

    Thanks for the answer.  I went through this manual before (and Training manual (Basic)). In alarm viewer and through alarm agent itself for 1 bit (any digital alarm) you can only see his current state of alarm, if this alarm will repeat you will lose the data when was previous alarm. But i solve the problem.  When you are using unlicensed MAPS you can use Alarm Management Agent with all functions only for hour. But if you check History mode box - all of this functions are gone and you will be able to use it with the AdroitHistoricalAlarmViewer. You dont need to make categories and other functions for this (cause its impossible to use them in unlicensed history mode). Just add in alarm agent (in setting of the routes) "Alarm management agent" in output section and you can see alarms log in the AdriotHistoricalAlarmViewer. Maybe someone will correct me.  But i have another question. In AdroitHistoricalAlarmViewer its only possible to auto update this log in minute unit. Can i change it to seconds or something? I change this value to zero minutes and client has started lagging. And i know there is manual refresh button. 
  13. Maps alarm management

    Hello everyone.  In a previous thread MAPS was recommended as a best SCADA for Mitsubishi plcs. So i've started to trying it. I've faced problem. I am trying to create log of alarms (which is common in HMIs/SCADAs and i never had trouble in other products). As i understood from help menu (maybe i am wrong) - you need to create SQL server data base, after this create AlarmManagement agent and connect him to this SQL database. I did all of this but there is nothing in "Category" list. For once there was "Root" word for 1 second and then still nothing. I cant add category or something else and dont know what should i do next. For additional information: Maps 4.0.1.0 x32 (saw in designer window). Unlicensed.  My OS Win 7 x64 SQL Server Express 2014 x64 Have created database via SQL Server 2014 Management Studio I checked the boxes Start Alarm Management agent and history alarm mode. (But i tried other combinations of active boxes, with the reboot of agent server). In just Alarm Viewer (which only show as current alarms) all work without any problem.
  14. SCADA for FX3U

    Never heard about it before. Maybe you can say something about it from your experience? 
  15. SCADA for FX3U

    I heard about citect before and those reviews were positive only. I will test it as soon as i have free time, but for now what can you tell about convenience working with it? Maybe were some problems with it? Or some function are missing?  I have been working a long time ago with the WinCC (with s7-300 plcs) and it was good. But they moved to TIA Portal and it seems not quite conveniently, maybe just for me. And i dont know about mitsubishi drivers.
