  1. ML1100 And Analogue Expansion Module

    Hi Guys you are all absolute stars it was in deed the dip switches it now working a dream you're all a credit to the MrPlc community    Kind Regards
  2. Hi Guru's I'm in a bit of a pickle and hoping you can help...... I have a ML1100 with an analogue input/ouput expansion module hanging off it but i can't seem to get the 0 to +10v I:1.0 working i have set 
  3. ML1100 And Analogue Expansion Module

    Sorry the expansion mod is a  1762-IF2OF2
  4. ML1100 And Analogue Expansion Module

    Hi Guru's I'm in a bit of a pickle and hoping you can help...... I have a ML1100 with an analogue input/ouput expansion module 1762-OF4 hanging off it but i can't seem to get the 0 to +10v ( I:1.0 ) working i have read the I/O config and adjusted the settings in the I/O config so the inputs should look for 0 to +10v but it only reading a max of 64 on I:1.0 please see image below  when i remove the analogue input from I:1.0 and use the built in analogue Input on the ML1100  I:0.4 it works fine and the output from 1762-OF4 O:1.0 is giving me a 0-10v just as id expect. My question is why isnt the input working on the card? im using 0 to +10v so my common is 0v Please see images below
  5. RS Logix

    Hi All just a quick question on RS Logix 500 versions after ive been reading a thread on here as i understand RS Logix Micro Lite can only communicate with MicroLogix 1000 and 1100 as this is a free download but this chaps got a paid version of RS Logix Lite that can communicate with ML1200 and above is this software the same but the comms door to more higher end PLC's opened just interested to see what you guys make of it
  6. Datalogic Vs2

    Ive tried breaking the common and im not sure how to send a message to the camera via ethernet from the micrologix 1100 im thinking i may need to use an optocouple to get out of this pickle im in 
  7. Datalogic Vs2

    Hi Guru's this is an odd ball question so thought id post it in here..... Ive got a DataLogic VS2 Vision Sensor and software that a can set up a good file of parameters and download to the vision sensor...... now heres the but there are multiple trigger modes to trigger the camera to take an image, please see image below. 1. Continuous  2. External Trigger Rising edge +3vDC - 24vDC 3. External Trigger Falling Edge 0v 4. Ethernet I'm only interested in the taking the image via the External Trigger Rising edge +3vDC - 24vDC as there is a sensor on our machine that gives a 24vDC output when the part is in position and id like to use the same output from this sensor as the rising edge trigger for the VS2 to take an image. but when i have it set to external trigger rising the camera does nothing ive tried multiple PSUs 5v thru to 24v and still cannot get it to trigger an image  Im using pin 8 red on the M12 8 pin lead as required as this is the external trigger   any help on this matter will as always be much appreciate
  8. 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 
  9. Micrologix talking to Schneider Drive

    Cheers ill give that shot Kind Regards
  10. 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 
  11. 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 
  12. 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
  13. Analogue Micrologix 1100

    Thank you guys i'll have a look at it now
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. Communicating with old panelview plus

    have you tried connecting via RS232 instead of Ethernet 
  17. 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 
  18. panelview 550 auto test failing

    flash it and reinstall the software if it boots back up
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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   
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
