  1. Micrologix talking to Schneider Drive

    Cheers ill give that shot Kind Regards
  2. Guru's iv got a job of revamping one of our process lines and there are 10 off 0.55Kw pumps on this line, i was planning on using a ML1100 processor with 2 analogue 4 channel cards to control the speed of the pumps coupled with ultrasonic sensors in a pid loop to control water levels, Now here’s the question in stead of using the analogue cards i was wondering if i could communicate with these Schneider ATV320U06M2B Drives via the Communication module: Ethernet/IP ive done this before using a multihop in the ladder but i was reading and writing to a Allen Bradley 525 i want to achieve the same but read write to the Schneider drives. is this possible? as always any help will be gratefully received 
  3. High speed counters ML1100

    Hi Garry cheers for that I did have a browse about looking for a thread yesterday I didn’t see that... Back to the drawing board for me 
  4. Download program to Micrologix 1400

    Hi JGeis you need 2 pieces of software Rs Linx and RS logix now the RS Logix can be one of 2 versions depending on what the softwares written in eg RS Logix 500 or RS Logix 5000 ask the supplier to state what the program was written in.... now the softwares not cheap “many thousands” and then there’s the licensing, so if you don’t use the software all the time it will work out a lot cheaper for you to send the plc off to the supplier to re-install the program hope this helps
  5. Hi Gurus i understand the ML 1100  has 1 20Khz high-speed counter. The counter has four dedicated inputs ive got inputs I:0/0 and I:0/1 connected to an encoder and it counts away dream and i can see it displayed on HSC.0.ACC but how can i get Inputs I:0/3 and I:0/4 working for a second encoder? iv connected the second encoder and can see the inputs blinking on the ML 1100 so i think its an addressing issue how do i read those pulses ive made sure the filter in the I/O config is set low enough to read the pulses and set Mode to 7 in the function files   as always your help is much appreciated 
  6. Analogue Micrologix 1100

    Thank you guys i'll have a look at it now
  7. Analogue Micrologix 1100

    Hi Mickey thanks for the highlighting the addressing issue im get getting a figure on I:0.4 now but only briefly as the goes into fault mode again straight away would you be so kind as to paste a completed SCP instruction with the correct values applied as ive gone and got myself in a complete pickle    as always youre as star Mickey  Kind regards Glenn
  8. Analogue Micrologix 1100

    Hi all im have a bit of drama with setting up a PID im using a Micrologix 1100 and expansion mod 1762-OF4 a telemecanique 0-10v ultrasonic sensor and a proportional valve 0-10v as I need the control the level of water in a tank what iv written isn't working i cant see any raw value on I:0.0 iv measured the out put of the sensor and im getting 0-10v out what am i missing please find attached some images    kind regards Glenn
  9. Communicating with old panelview plus

    have you tried connecting via RS232 instead of Ethernet 
  10. slc 500 migration

    ive used the ethernet adapter on the 503 in the past but the only draw back is 503s are obsolete im struggling to get the 505s any more if youre doing all this why not upgrade the processor? just a thought 
  11. panelview 550 auto test failing

    flash it and reinstall the software if it boots back up
  12. Powerflex 4M

    thank you for that detailed info it turns out the 22-SMC-232 is now obsolete and no longer available from many online stores, i use alot of powerflex 525's to read and wright data to and from the plc's via Ethernet using multihop and was hoping for a cheaper alternative as these drives aren't going to be doing a great deal but still wanted to be able to remote access them and the plc's write recipe parameters but buying an Ethernet adapter will put the price up into the 525 price range and im looking at buying 40+ units over the space of a year or so you can understand why id like to keep the price down   kind regards
  13. Powerflex 4M

    Hi all im trying to establish communication with a powerflex 4M via the DH485 port on the drive and using Drive explorer software I've downloaded from the Rockwell site on my laptop it doesnt look like these are Ethernet ready as i cant manually enter an IP address .... can anyone throw me a bone here? kind regards Glenn
  14. Hi im not as clued up as the wizard before me but im sure it can be done, i had the same trouble with CCW saying it couldnt add an AB PV 1000 to the project organizer but i got around it have a look below at the pic it may help you
