  1. Thanks a lot for your replies. @Wasan, scale equations work great, also your program example is perfect. It's all clear to me. Thanks!
  2. Hello! I am new at PLC programming. I am using TM221CE16R PLC with TM3AI8 analog input module and SoMachine Basic v1.6. I am trying to scale analog input value. I am using 4-20 mA pressure sensor. I managed my wiring so that I get raw values in SoMachine Basic. But I don't know how to scale these values to usable values. My sensor works in range 0 - 16 bar. What is best way to get values? Is it PID function block or multioperand function block using equations to get range 0 - 16? I will appreciate your help.   Thanks in advance!

    Hello jem233, I am also new to PLC programming. I am using TM221CE16R and SoMachine Basic v1.6. I am trying to get analog measurements into PLC. I downloaded your project and I see you used PID. Was this working OK for you? Could you also send me wiring you did on your analog input module? I would appreciate it. Thanks!
  4. After a month and with help of technical support we figured out that problem was with hardware on PLC. They sent me new PLC. Thanks for help!
  5. I already uploaded latest firmware (, but error is still there. It's really weird that changing firmware doesn't clear this mistake. After uploading firmware I still got error light blinking and the same error message. I am afraid about hardware being corrupted. Is there any hardware reset? Or some hard reset for these Schneider M221 PLCs?? Thanks in advance.
  6. Thanks for reply! Expansion slot in program and attached to PLC have the same part numbers. Expansion slot plug is not damaged. Voltage to expansion slot is correct, also without any voltage it has PWR (power) LED on.  IF I configure program without any expansion slot, erase program in controller and upload new configuration, I got the same error. Really can't figure out what could be problem. My whole configuration worked fine for 2 hours. After NO CHANGES it stopped working, as I remember PLC got disconnected by itself and reconnected (USB, not physically), then suddenly everything stopped working and I got this message. Any ideas?
  7. Hello! I am using PLC TM221CE16R and SoMachine Basic v1.6. My PLC has firmware I use analog expansion bus, input module TM3AI8. Everything was working fine for 2 hours until suddenly I got next message in SoMachine Basic: I/O expansion configured but is absent or inoperative. I/O expansion bus is not started. Since then ERR LED is always blinking. I already tried deleting program, updating firmware, removing expansion module in configuration page, removing/adding physical module, selected module as Optional, removing battery - nothing helped. If I try removing application, ERR LED is still blinking. Seems like I can't delete previous program, something like config file is burned into PLC.  On the other hand: if I write some simple program, PLC works fine. It turns on/off relays correctly. Just expansion bus is not working. It is not working even if it's not configured or attached physically to PLC.Can anybody please help me? It is really frustrating.
