  1. Communicating with old panelview plus

    have you tried connecting via RS232 instead of Ethernet 
  2. 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 
  3. panelview 550 auto test failing

    flash it and reinstall the software if it boots back up
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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   
  7. Torq settings Powerflex 4M

    Hi just a quick update if anyone out there is looking at this and wants to run a 4M inverter the way i do change parameter A453 that's set at factory default 8  to 1  this will allow the motor to stall and not go into fault mode
  8. Another Dumb newb question

    try this way with no scaling  setting J-type thermocouple to engineering units x10 that'll give you a true reading of the thermocouple to address there themocouple its I:x.X eg I:4.0    
  9. Hi Gurus iv got a powerflex 0.37kw inverter 4M that needs to wind up paper on a reel it works fine with regards to start stop and speed control on pot, but i need to adjust the torque as my product is just snapping when there is to much tension ive had a look at the parameter lists and nothings jumping out at me please see parameter list attached if any one could help me id be very grateful    kind regards Glenn
  10. 2 PV800s controlling one PLC

    Thanks guys ive found another way to do it in CCW by setting the indicator tag the same as the write tag your input is much appreciated     
  11. Hi Guru's so today ive fitted a PV800 7" as a mirror of the original 10" PV800 but i have a problem, if i hit a maintained PB on either HMI the state will change from red (stop) to green (run) on that hmi but it doesnt change the state of the exact same button mirrored on the other HMI  am i missing something silly like a handshake?   as always any help will be awesome
  12. Hi Mickey sorry for the approach but youve helped me alot in the past and i was wondering if you could help again?


    kind regards Glenn

  13. Daisy chaining PV800's

    Thanks ever so much for the answering my question its much appreciated 
  14. Daisy chaining PV800's

    Hi thanks for the reply im trying to control one plc using two HMI's im also using TCPIP, i was wondering if a multistate push button would change state on both PV's  (ie change colour green to red..... run to stop) on both PV's when one is pressed?
