  1. Change of Controller in rslogix 5000 V20.01

    Recommend you upgrade your RSLogix v20.01 to v20.04.  May or may not fix the problem but at least you'll be current.
  2. CompacLogix 1769-L36ERM

    You'll need the BootP utility.  This assumes the PLC is fresh out of the box.  If the PLC was previously set with a IP address and/or the BOOTP setting in the PLC is turned off, this procedure will fail. This is the procedure I use: Connect a ethernet cable directly from your PC to the PLC. Disable all ethernet ports other than the one you are using to connect to the PLC. Open the BootP utility. With the PLC powered up, you should begun to see requests from the PLC for settings.  Embedded in the request will be the MAC address of the PLC's ethernet port which you should be able to verify against the label on the PLC. Select the request and press the ADD RELATION button.  The dialog will ask you to fill in the desired IP address. Press OK to close the dialog.  The tool will send the necessary message to the PLC to temporarily set the IP address. Not long after you'll begin to see messages in the ENTERED RELATIONS window at the bottom of the tool.  At this point you can select to disable the BOOTP - DHCP settings in the PLC to make the IP address "permanent" (the setting will survive a cold reboot).  If not disabled, the PLC will again request a IP address after a cold re-boot.  There will be an acknowledgement of the change in the BOOTP-DHCP setting at the very bottom of tool.   Many times it says it failed, don't worry, this can be changed elsewhere, either in RSLINX or directly thru RSLogix/Studio 5000. This was mostly be memory but the most important thing is that you become familiar with the Ethenrt/IP Commissioning Tool.  There are different ones available, some geared for a specific mfg, but for the most part they do the same thing.
  3. Registering EDS Files

    Many device mfg's use Anybus gateways .  The name  Bihl-Wiedemann was found at the Anybus website after a google search.
  4. Kinetix 300 Hard Limits

    FYI if the Kinetix is a 300.  I'm commissioning a project that has one and I was unable to execute the browser/java app that is MotionView without going back to Java Version 7; newer versions, 8 & 9, complained about a security issue. The drives firmware can also be upgraded.  Its explained in the Knowledgebase article 1044877 if you get stuck.
  5. CLX to Fanuc Remote Start

    It involves mapping the robot's UI & UO to the E/IP interface.  It can be done through the teach pendant.  Unfortunately I do not have the offline Fanuc s/w to show examples and Fanuc is pretty nasty about putting up links to their manual.  PM me and I can help you.
  6. Copy data from/to a 5069 digital module

    Learn something new every day, thanks!
  7. Sounds like the tag addressing is not correct in the Panelview.  Example, I've seen mistakes where a programmer creates a local tag (verses a controller tag) and then addresses in the HMI as a controller tag.  Can you screenshot anything so we can help?  The information provided is too vague to provide a specific fix.
  8. How are you testing the HMI application?  Can you post the files?
  9. Studio5000 crashes if i create a device shortcut

    That would be my bet.  But, do you have Service Pack 1 installed?
  10. Studio5000 crashes if i create a device shortcut

    Studio 5000 is supported on Windows 7 Pro.  So you need to upgrade the operating system.  Yes, some may say they have it working on Home but there are no guarantees.
  11. Cop_5069_DigIO.ACD View File I'm programming my first project with the 5069 series and the digital input and output points are not available from the modules in a condensed form.  In response to the thread "Copy data from/to a 5069 digital module", I'm uploading what I'll be using to condense inputs and outputs into single elements. The file is in v29, enjoy and look forward to seeing any improvements that can be made.  Especially in the OB AOIs. Submitter jstolaruk Submitted 02/17/18 Category PLC Sample Code

  13. Copy data from/to a 5069 digital module

    I wrote a couple of AOIs for the IB16 & OB16.  They're not perfect; I could not figure a way to write to the output module in one instruction.  Nice thing about v28, you can reference the module directly for inOut parameters.  I also condensed the faults and status into a single DINT output.  I'll post them in the files section shortly.   Available here for anyones use :http://forums.mrplc.com/index.php?/files/file/1135-cop_5069_digioacd/
  14. Preserving FIFO Data

    I do the changes online 99% of the time to perserve all data.  In the case of lots of edits that I've done off site, I'll go online with one instance of Studio then open another instance of Studio with the changes.  Having previously noted where my changes are, I'll copy paste the changes from the offline to the online - delete the old and insert the new.  Sometimes its entire routines.

    You want the STOD instruction.  String_To_DINT
