  1. Communication error

    Hey Guys,    This is my first time on a forum like this! but i need a hand with something if someone could point me in the right direction.   I have a Powerflex 40 drive communicating over Ethernet/IP to a switch, That drive has four Powerflex 4's connected to it thru DSI connection. They seemed to be wired correctly and seem to be sound connections but when someone on the production hits an E-Stop it removes power from this bank of drives. (Which is standard here) . However, when they power back up i get an F081 Error (Comms lost) on the master drive and one slave. Also, the port light on the 20-comm-e(Powerflex 40) is faintly flashing about every 5 seconds and is the only light on. In this state, none of them communicate. However, when i unplug the DSI cable, the 20-comm-e powers back up to normal operation. I then plug the DSI back in and everything works fine.  Should i start replacing parts or is there some parameters/other wiring i could check?   Thanks guys.
  2. DeviceNet

    I have enjoyed reading the posts on this site for some time now, and I am hoping that someone on here would be able to help me out with a problem. We have a small DeviceNet network consisting of a 1756-DNB (node00), two Wago scanners (nodes 03, and 04) and two identical MTS position transducers (nodes 02, and 05). The DNB card is in a rack along with a ControlLogix L71 controller. We have been experiencing random device net error alarms lately where a node would stop communicating and we would power down the system and reboot. The errors would then go away. The other day I decided to use the Networx for DeviceNet to find out what was going on when one of these errors popped up. I found that the device on node 05 was not present on the network. Since we had a spare identical sensor I decided I would address the sensor as node 05 and configure it using a spare DNB card and chassis we have. All went well until I installed the spare sensor into the system. At that point we had alarms pertaining to most of the device net devices. Scanning the network with the Networks software showed no device problems, all were present and communicating, but I could not get the alarms to reset. We tried rebooting the network, the sensor, and even the entire system with no luck. It wasn’t until I reinstalled the old sensor that we were able to get the alarms to clear. Since I have rambled on long enough I won’t bore you with the rest of the trip down this rabbit hole I went down, but what did I do wrong when trying to change this sensor? Is there a specific sequence of events that need to take place when replacing one, even if the sensors are identical?  I am stumped, and we still have the potential of one of these sensors failing without having a clear idea about how to go about changing it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 
  3. I recently had an issue where a system shipped to a customer's site with a mismatch between the IP address loaded into the CJ1W-ETN21 card and the node dials on the card itself.  We had been testing the settings of the card by pinging the address and had assumed if the node dials were wrong we would not be able to ping the card.  As we just found out that is not the case! Both our quality department and our customer's end user were able to ping the Ethernet card, but the end user could not establish FINS communications because the node dials were not correctly set. Is there a way to test that the dials are correctly set?    Thank you!!!
  4. Flex I/O Rack

    I am in the middle of doing a retrofit for a old PLC5 and i decided to upgrade it to a Control Logix. With how much I/O I was needing the price of the system was going to be very pricey. So I decided to use my main rack as a control logix and use Flex I/O for my remote racks. I have never put together a Flex I/O rack so I am unsure of what I need for this rack other than my I/O modules and a communication module. Could someone give me a list of what is needed for these systems? 
  5. Is it possible to add another AB Rockwell PLC to the network tree as a Generic Ethernet Module and use it as IO? Any idea where I would find information regarding assembly instance and size of I/O/C for AB Rockwell products? If possible, what are the pros and cons when compared to produce/consume and MSG instructions? Don't need to use it real world, just curious. Many thanks in advance.
  6. Delta PLC Analog Noise Reduction

    Hello All, I am Using Delta SE Series PLC and 06AD Module for Pressure Transmitter. But Analog input get fluctuate continuously. Is anybody have program for analog scaling.
  7. Hi all !    I need a help about connection between mitsubishi GOT Simple series (gs2110) to kawasaki robot via crossed ethernet cable on tcp/ip protocol. I actually have a fx3g for main unit of my project, and also i have a kawasaki robot for slave unit. My purpose is basically to control both with HMI. I used RS422 between plc and got gs2112 and I want to use a crossed ethernet cable between robot and got but i did not communicate with ethernet even between pc and got. There is a manuel which I found on internet about GOT2000  Connection Manual (Microcomputers, MODBUS/Fieldbus Products, Peripherals) I think i need to work on  microcomputer connection (ethernet) subject, what do you think about that ? I need all advices and ideas which come from you.   [ROBOT]--------Ethernet--------[HMI]--------RS422--------[PLC]
  8. I’m a software engineer who works with our PLC team, so please bear with me!    We log data from the PLC into our ERP application.  The PLC team provides an L5X file which my application parses for tag names, we then choose individual tags to poll within our user interface.  The application automatically generates the Eweb XML view for the chosen tags, the point here is that it doesn’t require any PLC programming.   This works great for polled data like temperatures read every 5 minutes via Eweb, but it doesn’t work for event-driven data like alarms or detecting state change for a tag. I’m looking for a way for my application to register (subscribe) as a listener for an event without requiring PLC programming for each additional event we want to observe. Upon state change the PLC or middleware just needs to send some type of outbound message, for example, post via http (rest), connect to a socket server or send a message via MQTT within a couple of seconds... We have 8 Eweb cards, all 1756 series controllers at multiple locations and we currently poll them from a central server, so the hardware overhead is minimal.  Is there some functionalized code/ladder logic that could act as a standard event listener within the PLC controller?  For instance, could my application write tags I’d like to monitor to a string array via eweb write, then have some standard PLC code iterate through the array looking for changes in the underlying tags?  Since we’ve got polling working so well, we’d like to avoid a separate device / local middleware server just for events, but perhaps its required? All recommendations welcome as I don’t think I have a grasp of what’s possible or practical!
  9. Convert .ACD file to .PDF

    Hello, I have .ACD file but do not have any software to read ladder logic. Can anyone help me convert the file into pdf please?   Is there any software, apart from RSlogix, available out there to view this type of file?   Thanks, HA Skin_Measuring_3_05_18.ACD
  10. ControlLogix DLL File

    Hello, I've been wracking my brain, but I thought I remembered there was a way to store and execute a DLL file inside of a ControlLogix (not softlogix) controller? You could use exposed functions inside the DLL to fit your needs. Am I going crazy? Or is this not possible? Any insight into this is much appreciated. Thanks, neech
  11. Hi guys! Can anybody help me? I have an existing controlnet network. How can I connected a new module? Like an 1794 IB16. What should I need to do after I connected the new module? One more question: What's the difference if I do not connected the new module right after the last module, but I connected between already existing module. Then what should I need to configure. If anybody want to help, please write like step by step. I'm a beginner, but I want to imporve myself. Thank you for your help. I almost forget, I need to work with Allen-Bradley PLC, and I have RSLogix 5000 software.
  12. We are trying to use 1492-AIFM8S-3 module with 1756-IF8I module. RA has a technical post "728767 - Wiring system solutions for 1756-IF8I, 1756-IF8IH, 1756-OF8I and 1756-OF8IH IO modules" showing you will need a 1492-ACABLE*YD part number to connect the AIFM8S-3 to IF8I for internal loop powered devices, and a 1492-ACABLE*YA to connect the AIFM8S-3 to IF8I for external powered devices.  I.e., according to 728767 you CANNOT mix external powered device with internal loop powered device onto the same IF8I when 1492-AIFM8S-3 is used, you have to assign them to different IF8I modules and use the YD and YA cables accordingly.  I don't understand why that is necessary. In my understanding, external powered and internal powered devices can be mixed on IF8I, either YD or YA can be selected in conjunction with AIFM8S-3. A supporting clue would be page 215 of 1756-UM540E-EN-P, in there the manual shows for IF8I current type of wiring, YA cable is the only option you will need. Compare the 41171-192 and the 41171-199 wiring diagram in the 728767 and draw your own conclusion. (BTW, there is an error on 41171-192, pin 30 and 29 on IF8I are reversed). There seems to be a discrepancy between the 728767 and the 1756-UM540E-EN-P, doesn't it? Could any guru explain to me which one of them is more true? Many thanks in advance. page 215 1756-UM540E-EN-P.pdf 728767 - Wiring system solutions for 1756-IF8I, 1756-IF8IH, 1756-OF8I and 1756-OF8IH IO modules.pdf

    Does anyone have an .eds file for the Zebra printers. I need to use ethernet/IP from a CJ2MCPU31

    I have 6 PLCs CPM2A and 4 PLCs CP1LM I'm going to network them to do the supervision and data acquisition from each PLC and connects them to a pc via an ethernet port So what are the hardware and software used?
  15. What am I doing wrong? I have an FX3GE PLC. I have set up the IP address and I am able to connect with my laptop running GX Works2 version 1.501X. I also have a GS2107 that I have set up with IP address (Default). I can communicate with my laptop running GT Designer3 version 1.151H. The HMI is still failing to communicate with the PLC. I have followed different threads on this forum, tried different port settings on the HMI. I have attached my settings. Is there anything else I need to set?
  16. We have been successful using the EIP4CCPU module in communicating Ethernet IP between Compact Logix And Mits Q PLC's. Always with the Allen Bradley as the master. However, we are presently trying to control a 520 PowerFlex VFD from the Q series as master.  Has anyone attempted this?
  17. Any tool to simulate Ethernet/IP for omron PLcs? I need to know the complete packate structure for Omron Ethernet/IP over Omron PLCs. I have read that we can use FINS command inside Ethernet/Ip packet . But how to get full pacakte structure.   Please help , it is urgent.
  18. Hi, I've been working with RSLogix 500, today i found that i was unable to connect to Micrologix PLC because in the RSLinx the Driver Ethernet IP that was configured to communicate whit PLC appears with a Red Cross. Yesterday everything was working. I've installed an antivirus software, i supposed the reason was the antivirus, but i've tried on configs and even uninstalling it, and RSLinx seems that can't reconigze the ethernet adapter (guess that means red cross) RSLinx 3.51 CPR 9 SR 5.1 RSLogix 500 Pro 9.0 Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bits Could you, provide to me some guidelines to solve this, or if somebody has had this problem, could share the solution? thanks in advance

  21. Hello everyone, I need the help to do setting of datalink between CJ2 and LOGIX-5324ER. The Allen bradley PLC was programmed by contractor and I have no software of it, so I am doing the network setting in CX-one network configurator. I tried to do the instruction in the Quick Start Guides on Downloads section here under Omron, but I couldn't find the option to register tags in network configurator. Is there anything wrong here? or is it possibly because of that they not support to do a datalink in these version of PLCs? They appeared like these in the pictures.
  22. Hello everyone! I am new to Eplan, and I am working on a big project on which someone else has worked on before me and almost finished it, but with a lot of technical mistakes and missing peaces. My boss expects me to fix a lot of things, but I have no experience with this software, so I could use some help. The problem is that no revision information (revision date, description, approved by etc) is displayed in this project, and I don't know how to make it appear, and be correct. I have made changes in plot frame and added special texts which should display these data, but I don't know where should I define wanted information (for example, I put special text for "approved by" but I can't seem to find adequate place to write the name of that person)? And, is there a way for Eplan to generate automatically revision description, based on the changes I made? From all said, it is obvious that I have no idea at all how revisions work, so any help would be enormously appreciated Thank you in advance! Cheers

  24. I'm building a program from scratch for the first time in awhile and I'm noticing after adding an OA16 card that I have 32 bits of output data and the data type is a DINT.  I'm using version 30 now and when I open some of my older programs in ver.15 I notice those 16 bit cards are SINT and only have 16 bits of output data as I'd expect.  What gives, why am I seeing 32 bits for this 16 bit card?
  25. MES US over Ethernet

    I have a Mitsubishi MES US network module ( QJ71MES96US ) connected to an Ethernet remote PLC (through an Enet switch). I'm not sure if this matters, but the remote rack has a Q PLC and an Ethernet master module kit (Q03UDECPU-EIP-K is the kit that has a Q03UDECPU and EIP4CCPU next to it). I am wondering if and how we connect the MES to a Q PLC over Ethernet to pull data. A coworker has configured the MES US module to talk to a PLC in a local rack, but never to a remote rack. If anyone can assist, or even reference a manual that would be appreciated, thank you.
