  1. 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.
  2. 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. 
  3. SCADA for FX3U

    Hello everyone.  I got factory full of FX3U plcs and right now is needed to make a SCADA for monitoring (and maybe provide some control) all of them. I dont know which SCADA product to choose. Which one have bettter compatibility with mitsubishi plcs/which one is cheaper/or maybe simpler in use.  Thank you in advance.
  4. SCADA for FX3U

    Never heard about it before. Maybe you can say something about it from your experience? 
  5. 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.
  6. PLC_Q - Inverter_FR-A700_Profibus

    Have solved the problem.  Changed wiring between line A and line B on Profibus connector (from siemens) because on FR side D+ means B line, and D- A line. Find the answer in the "FR-A7NP E kit" manual from 2016. In original manual "FR-A7NP" from 2005 find nothing about that. Maybe it will be helpful for someone.
  7. PLC_Q - Inverter_FR-A700_Profibus

    I have exactly same problem. Can you say how you have solved this? 
  8. GOT FX3U connection

    Thank you for your answers. I need a trend of current value on GOT nearby motor, but closest plc is located 700m-1km away from it. So idk, i think it doesnt require fast speed link or i wrong?
  9. GOT FX3U connection

    Hello everyone. I need to make connection between plc fx3u and GOT panel (still not sure what model it will be) on distance between each other +-1km. Which connection should i use? Ethernet? 422? 485?
  10. 1 slave to multiple masters

    Hello everyone. I got the project where plc Q00UJCPU with the module QJ71MB91 connected to the slave device via 485 channel . This plc takes some values (like current/voltage etc). i dont have access to this plc cause he is on guarantee on another service company. So question is... How to connect to this device as a other plc FX3U via 485ADP-MB (and i think RS command) module in parralel to QPLC already working link? Is this possible without harm QPLC and all the data which he takes?
  11. 1 slave to multiple masters

    I quite dont understand your answer. But arent there the same type of commucation on device thats i need data from? Cause and QPLC and FXPLC will use 485 interface for this. And i red something about some divices thats allow you take data from the existing link, like this: http://www.iccdesigns.com/millennium-series/12-xltr-1000.html http://www.miille.com/366-10p-xyz.htm Can you give advice on this?
