  2. Wonderware DASMTEthernet Driver

    I have a client who is duplicating an existing Wonderware SCADA/MELSEC Q Series with a Wonderware 2014 R2 configuration, which they want to maintain that version.  The driver they use is the DASMTEthernet, which is no longer available from Wonderware.  I'm looking for any lead I can find to get hold of this driver, or a good solution to resolve the communications.
  3. LOGO! 8 TIA portal WinCC

    Hi all experts, I am LOGO! 8 PLC programmer, and now I am beginning to start SCADA developement. I want to ask which software should I install ?, 1. TIA portal with Siemens SIMATIC STEP 7 Professional & WinCC Professional 15.1 x64 2. WinCC RT Professional 15.1 x64 3. STEP 7 Professional 14.0 4. SINAMICS Startdrive 14.0 5. WinCC RT Advanced v15 Please excuse me if my question is not OK as I am beginning scada developement I know nothing about it and I can get limited software through my college programme. I am confused too because I found that "Up from version 12 of WinCC the driver “LOGO” is available" and also "I think the Logo! communication driver is only available for a WinCC RT advanced , not professional."  in this post : unable-to-connect-tia-15-version-to-logo-8/185145 Please hep me so that I can learn SCADA developement with my LOGO8 Waiting for your fruitful reply, Thanks and Regards
  4. How do I communicate between an Omron NX1P2 Automation Controller and Indusoft Web Studio. This is the first time using an Automation Controller. I am familiar with communicating between Omron PLC's and Indusoft using OMETH drivers. What driver should I use?
  5. Optimized Blocks

    Hello everyone, Are there any alternatives to WinCC at the moment that can handle using optimized blocks. In most other SCADA software, while importing tags, the option to optimize blocks should not be selected as they cannot import in this format. Ignition by Inductive Automation has a driver that can be purchased to solve this problem. I wanted to know if there are some other solutions to this issue.  Thanks!
  6. Hi all. I have a Kinetix 350 and an AB TLY servo motor. I'm using the drive's STO function. AC power is supplied into the drive, passing through an "M1" contactor. It makes sense to m e to keep that contactor open, preventing AC power to the drive, until the drive is fully awake.  Is that what you guys do? Someone suggested to me in another forum ( http://www.plctalk.net/qanda/showthread.php?t=121021&highlight=drive+awake ) that there is no reason not to supply power to the drive right away because the STO function is inhibiting power to the motor anyway. 
  7. I have developed Vijeo Citect 7.5 in last 15 Days before at a Plant. During last 15 days scada went good and healthy, But suddenly its pop up window getting stuck after every 10-12hrs. So it is not possible to start/stop motor, drive. when press window button from keyboard then it becomes healthy again.  I am unable to reach at any solution for this problem. Please help me. 
  8. There have been many good discussions on the applicability of cloud-based solutions for manufacturing and process control systems. On one side, some people have concerns regarding security and control of the information, on the other side, there are identified benefits enabled by cloud systems. From VMS minicomputers to DOS and Windows, from ArcNet to Ethernet, it is inevitable the industrial automation systems shall adopt the technologies that are getting predominant in IT general use; the current environment that I am calling the “Cloud-iPad era” is no different; therefore the practical discussion is not if those new technologies will be applied in the industrial environment, but how. This paper is not intended to join the conceptual discussion about the cloud, but just to present a few simple practical examples, where cloud technologies are already enhancing industrial automation solutions and enabling new business opportunities.

  9. Hello All I am new to sysmac studio, i am using a NJ301-1200  and R88M-KN10H servo drive , i connected the servo to the NJ using ethercat. I was able to write a program where i was able to activate the servo from the NJ using the mc_Power instruction . My question is , i am not able to run the servo using the mc_movevelocity and mc_moverelative . Do any one have any suggestion to how to go from here ..  
  10. I use Netgear routers with multi-NAT capability to attach machines to the company LAN. One of the advantages is that similar machines can have identical network addressing schemes while a multi-NAT router on each machine can be used to assign unique external addresses. The usual error on these setups is to forget to assign a gateway IP address and so the PLC can't respond to requests from outside its subnet. I have the router set up as normal (as I have done a hundred times before on other machines). PLC has correct IP address, subnet and gateway (that of the router LAN address). Router has NAT rule configured, correct LAN subnet, etc. I can PING the PLC from the company network. This implies that the router, wiring, etc., are all OK. If I disconnect the PLC ethernet cable during a PING I get errors. This implies that the address is unique, etc. Controller --> Communication Setup --> Ethernet connection via hub --> Ethernet communication test --> "A communication error has occurred." Has anyone seen this? Any reason why it shouldn't work as I expect? Many thanks.

  12. Analysing SCADA systems

    Hey guys, I'm currently working on a project to analyze available SCADA systems and make a systematic comparison of some of these selected options. In today's markets, there's a constant rise in demand for Industry 4.0 applications in the production process, connectivity, and data acquisition. What are some other important technical factors that need to be considered in order to compare these systems?
  13. Hello, I am looking for a way to programatically select a recipe. Any time that a recipe is change or saved, the recipe viewer object always resets its view and selects the first recipe. This will lead to possibly writing the wrong recipe to the controller, as well as frustrate the user if they have to scroll through a hundred items to find the recipe again. I looked at the VB functions, but the only one I could find that was close was the .SelectedRecipe, which is a read only. I am using Sysmac Studio v1.1.7, and an NA5 HMI. Any help would be appreciated.
  14. Siemens IPC477D Touchscreen Driver Needed

    I have reloaded a IPC477D with Windows 7 64-bit and everything is working but since we do not have the original installation disk or ISO, we have no way to load the touchscreen driver. I am looking for any information that would lead me to the OEM for the touchscreen or if anyone has access to the IPC installation DVD, all we need is the touchscreen driver directory which should have both the 32-bit and 64-bit version. Siemens tech support indicated we must repurchase a installation DVD for $350.00 and it would ship from the fatherland and be here in about a week. Thanks in advance.
  15. MBE Driver can't save config file

    Hello!I am using MBE Driver v7.46b on Windows Server 2012 R2. Problem is that I can't save config file. I can edit Channels, devices and data blocks, I can see incomming values, I save a file without any message. But config file is not saved. In Event viewer I get error as you can see on picture. It says: Error writing to system registry: Driver App 00000001 \Driver defaults. Other error says: Error writing to system registry: ServerMsg 00C54BB8 \Driver defaults.Is it server or driver problem? Please help. At the moment I can't edit anything in driver so I can't configure it to use it with my SCADA iFIX 5.8
  16. Hello! I am beginner in PLC world, also in SIEMENS PLCs. I managed communication over private network. Now I have a problem that I get same values on all inputs. Picture below shows my configuration of driver and data monitor. First picture shows values when input I0.0 is in state 0. Second picture shows values when input I0.0 is in state 1. Physically on PLC only input I0.0 is forced to 1, input I0.1 stays 0. But data monitor shows both inputs as state 1. Where is problem? Is problem in PLC program, TIA portal? I saw some guys using DataBlocks but I am not skilled enough to use it. Third picture shows simple PLC program on my PLC. Please help. Thanks in advance!
  17. Hello! I am trying to connect my PLC with SCADA. I am using S7-1200 1212C CPU (RELAY outputs). My SCADA system is iFIX 5.8 with driver S7A. I am trying to establish connection via GPRS router (TCP/IP). Port being used is 102 (default by S7A driver). In my company we have private network, SIM card in GPRS router gets static IP (set by RADIUS server)  which is 10.247.XXX.XXX. My PLC has IP 192.168.0.10 set in Project. I am not sure what am I doing wrong. How to correctly set IP address in PLC to communicate in private network via GPRS router with static IP? I already enabled TCP port 102 in my router but I am not sure to which IP should I enable it because I am not sure if IP address set in PLC is correct. Should I use some communication blocks in program? I also enabled PUT/GET function (see attached pictures). Please help. Thanks in advance! :)

  21. Weight Scale

    Hello - Not sure if this is the right place, I apologize if not. Just let me know if I need to move it and can delete and do so. But I am currently working on a project where I am collecting seeds (flower seeds, etc.) and when a certain weight limit is met I'll be turning off a vibratory bowl and opening a chute, etc. Looking for some ideas on the scale and how to do that process in particular. The smallest collection weight will be around 100mg, largest around 8g.  Mainly looking for ideas on the scale.  Thanks for any help/tips, much appreciate.
  22. Hello everyone, Working in Automation for the first time as a Co-op student so i'm fairly new to PLC's and the Automation field in general. I've recently been tasked with converting a RSlogix 5 program from an old PLC 5 project into a Studio5000 project. I referenced the manual (I'll attach link below), and had no issues using the RSlogix Project Migrator tool that I downloaded off the Rockwell website. My problem is that once I convert the program, my I/O tags that were originally sequenced in octets(0-7, 10-17, 20-27, ...) from the RSlogix 5 program, are switched into a sequential scheme in Studio5000 that just increments them in order (1, 2, 3, 4, ...). I hope this make sense, but basically the first seven tags match between the projects, but then I:010 in rslogix 5 is equivalent to I[8] in 5000, I:011 is I[9], and so on and so forth. Has anyone had this issue before and found a way to have Studio5000 keep the original octet scheme? I don't see this normally being an issue, but the customer has specifically asked that the I/O tag names be kept the same as the original program. Thanks for any help. - Ben   Converting PLC-5 reference manual link: https://literature.rockwellautomation.com/idc/groups/literature/documents/rm/1756-rm085_-en-p.pdf
  23. What Is Meaning Of Universal Analog Input Card?
  24. I have a new PC that is running Windows 10, I have RSLogix 500 loaded and working no problem, along with RSLinx, Factory Talk Activation... etc. I also loaded the Studio 5000 package and it loaded without a problem however will not run. It starts and allows you to pick a project to work on, then will display the Logix 5000 splash window for a second, then just close. No error message, crash or idea of what it is doing, just closes. So far no help from AB, perhaps someone here is running this on Windows 10 or has an idea how to figure out why it is closing. Thanks
