  1. Studio5000 crashes if i create a device shortcut

    That would be my bet.  But, do you have Service Pack 1 installed?
  2. 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.
  3. Cop_5069_DigIO.ACD

    Version 1.0.0

    3 downloads

    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.

  5. 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/
  6. 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.
  7. converting string to double integer

    You want the STOD instruction.  String_To_DINT
  8. Communication between a Robot and other machines

    All robot applications I work on have a PLC acting as a cell controller (90% of the cells I work on get delivered to Ford or GM and that is their requirement also).  The PLC coordinates all of the machinery and automation involving the material handling, operator interaction (HMI), and safety when a safety PLC is used.  Its much easier letting the robot be responsible for just what the robot is best at - single task motion and controlling end-of-arm tooling.  I find programming automation in ladder is much easier than trying to program automation in a robot scripting language.  The PLC is better suited to handle multiple asynchronous tasks where the robot is more suited for a single or list of sequential tasks.
  9. Logging on to a faulted processor.

    If the program is still in the processor and the fault is only because of missing I/O modules, the serial port may be configured for DH-485 instead of DF-1.
  10. Safety Tags Studio 5000

    No, you have to create a link between safety tags and non-safety tags by using the "Safety Tag Mapping" feature in the Tools pull down menu.
  11. Ultra 5000 drive, Firmware issue.

    When I started to look into this I was surprised that you have to have a different contract for technical support as this product is obsolete as of 2013.  (One of my customers has purchased every ultra5000 he could find in order to support older installations, about 500 units).  So I couldn't find a list of Series verses firmware release compatibility. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
  12. Ultra 5000 drive, Firmware issue.

    Difficult to see the pic but what series is listed on the Drive's label?
  13. I don't believe this statement is true. I can't find in RSLogix where I can separately configure the ports with different addresses. I hope someone can set me straight.
  14. S5 to an AB plc - hardware question

    With the availability and low cost of the 1769-L16* and 1769-L18* brick style processors with embedded I/O (expandable), I've kissed Micrologix and SLCs goodbye. Except for maybe the 1400, that thing has got a lot of nice features.
  15. RSLogix 5000 IO Mapping

    Assuming you have the project file and are able to open it in RSL5K, take a look at the I/O configuration tree. You can count, or at least estimate, the number of discrete I/O points the project uses.
