  1. Hi

    Yes, but somehow the TrendGraph dissapears from the Page, and that's another problem I have with a real controller... so I will try it once again and check if everything is alright and if I get the same problem, post it here. Thank you I will repost soon.

  2. Hey

    From a NA5-15W101S screen, I'm using "login()" method for login procedures. However I want some control over this method and particulary to store this warning message:


    Store the message string into a variable so I can use a datadisplay on a personalized login screen instead of getting that warning on the bottom of my HMI. And that is another thing which I need to control. How can I prevent that warning from appearing in the screen?


  3. Hey

    I installed many I/O Units on my ECC203 and I was checking the parameters each unit displays. I found something that could be interesting to know about but I have 0 skill checking this info on the manuals if there's any.

    What I'm talking about is on the Configuration and Setup / EtherCat / Node# / Unit# -> Edit, between all the parameters :

    • "Event Level Setting/Event 1" : Unit Over Range
    • "Event Level Setting/Level Setting of Level 1" : Observation / Minor fault
    • "Event Level Setting/Event 2" : Unit Under Range
    • "Event Level Setting/Level Setting of Level 2" : Observation / Minor fault

    First of all, What is this exactly? I understand this is for the range of resolutions for example between -15000 to 15000 points on 30000 resolution units, right? So a internal signal checks if this is true of false if the analog I/O goes over or under those points?

    How can I interact with this on the Ladder? Can I create a Global Variable that shows a bool value asociated to this Event?

    Can I Edit the Under Range value to trigger whenever it is below 0 points instead of -15000 points as described in the above example, in case that is how it works?

    What else can you guys tell me about these Events?


    Thank you

  4. Okay, it seems I didn't formulate the right question or something... I thought it was a simple question.

    On my HMI screen while operating, there's several pages where I click on a button, for example, to process a subroutine which makes the screen freeze until the end of the subroutine because it requires lot of code to process. What I want to do is show up an hourglass or loading popup to let the user know it's still processing the code.

    When I was looking for a solution for this, I read something about threads in that allows the program to create a separate process while another is in progress.

    Is this possible?

  5. Hi everyone.

    I'm progressing little by little on my project. So I was thinking of ways to improve my code and interactivity and come up with the idea to popup a loading screen on those processes that requires some time to load.

    The thing is, i'm not familiarized with threads or anything similar to it. My main question would be, how can I make a simple loading screen? (Or just an hourglass, img, etc.)

    However I understand I would need to get some previous knowlegde about threads(?), if so, can anyone point me a guide or website, and also point me what can Sysmac Studio do and cannot relative to this matter?

    Thx in advance.

  6. Hi

    This is a continuation of the following post:

    But since it is a different error I thought to write it on a new post.

    The problem I have is, once I reseted my controller, cleared all memories, whenever I want to transfer my new program to the controller I get this error:



    I clicked on the "Update Configuration and Setup Transfer Data" command but nothing happens and the problem still persists

    What does "perform a rebuild operation" mean?

    What can I do, the ETHERCAT configuration is correct since the last post error was fixed.

    Any idea?

  7. Hi

    I wanted to exchange one of my NX-OD3256 unit modules attached on a NX-ECC203 Ethercat Coupler for a NX-OD4256. But it seems impossible since i'm getting several errors on my sysmac studio and on the controller and coupler. The initial errors are the following:


    This happens when I restart and connect to the controller on sysmac:


    And this error shows up whenever I try to transfer the new configuration on the Ethercat tab by the button "Transfer to Unit":


    I searched for this post in the OMRON web:

    But the Minor Faults persists, I checked the troubleshooting manual and the w505 manual, but I cannot find any revelant info about the problem.

    I tried many things, like reseting the controller, going back to the old configuration program or checking any physical issue, which seems everything is fine.

    Any help is apreciated.




  8. Thank you but this does not help me, the guides never mention how to make a DateTime keypad popup when clicking on a DataEdit. Check out the image, as you can see I cannot establish Date as DataType so the InputMethod will always be NumericKeyPad o QwertyKeyPad.

    Maybe I'm blind and cannot see the way to do it, anyways I should formulate the question in another way:

    How can I make a DateTime Keypad popup from a DataEdit?



  9. Hi, noobie question... I'm using a NA5 on my sysmac studio 1.17

    What is the method or code that I have to type in order to pop a Custom DateTime Keypad up?

    I have a button which I set up a subroutine called "calldatekeypad" whenever the button is clicked. But the subroutine is empty because I don't know how to call a keypad on my screen.

    Any help is apreciated.

  10. I need to save the new generated recipes from my program into my SDCard plugged either in the HMI or in the NJ Controller (it doesn't matter where).

    Whenever I use SaveAllRecipes() function, in my simulations the path is choosen automatically, so the generated .csv is saved on my hardisk at "C:/OMRON/Data/Temp".

    However, once i'm working my program just with my NJ controller and HMI (without a Computer on it's network), theres no .csv generation at all despite of my SDCard being plugged either in the HMI or in the NJ Controller.

    There's no such function for specify a path for saving recipes as far as I know, right?. So I cannot import anything from nowhere, that's my problem when I try to use ImportRecipe().

    Is this case, what I'm doing wrong or what is necessary to set up previously in order to store the generated .csv into de SDCard?

    Ty in advance

  11. Hi this might be stupid question, but I'm trying to use these functions for recipes:

    • SaveAllRecipes(GetSelectedRecipeTemplate("myPage","myRecipe")
      • Where does this save file go, which path I got to copy to use on my SD card?

    Then also to import recipe want to:

    • ImportRecipes(myRecipe.SelectedTemplate, SDCARDPATH? & myRecipe.SelectedTemplate & ".csv")

    Also mention that there's no computer connected to the controller. When I was doing my simulations I could see that SaveAllRecipes generated csv file that went to "C:\OMRON\Data\Temp" folder. But there's no computer to store the saved recipe in this case.

    Thx in advance

  12. I want to use a For instruction on a rung that changes variables during a specific time. Doesn't matter if it's by ST or LADDER.

    Something like:

    For i := 0 to 5 Do
    Variable1 := Struct[i].variable1
    Variable2 := Struct[i].variable2
    VariableX := Struct[i].variableX
    TON_instance(IN:=True, PT:=variable_in_seconds, Q=>TimeUp);
    <HOLD FOR UNTIL TimeUp := True>
