  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Copy data from/to a 5069 digital module

    Learn something new every day, thanks!
  4. 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.
  5. How are you testing the HMI application?  Can you post the files?
  6. Studio5000 crashes if i create a device shortcut

    That would be my bet.  But, do you have Service Pack 1 installed?
  7. 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.
  8. 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

  10. 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/
  11. 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.
  12. converting string to double integer

    You want the STOD instruction.  String_To_DINT
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
