    This sample code creates a variable historian. It was originally created for a customer who wanted to log data at different intervals for different variables, and in some cases, only on change of state. It essentially can be used to write event data to a .csv file.

  6. Connect PLC to Kepserver

    I have Delta 12SA2 PLC it has RS232 port and I have connected it to kepserver (by Modbus serial) and then factory IO Now my problem is that when I connect my PLC to kepserver the RS232 port becomes busy with the kepserver and not available in the ISPSoft and therefore I could not demonstrate factory io and my logic in run mode in the isp soft together like you do in your videos. My PLC don't have ethernet port but is there an option in kepserver or any way by which i can use the same serial port of the PLC in isp soft run mode and kepserver+factory io together so that I can simultaneously show the logic running in isp soft and application working in factory io to my students. I googled a lot and found some softwares which make virtual serial ports for a given serial port but they don't work and soon hang Please help me I am in a great need of it. Thanks in advance.

    Hi everyone, My plc got a fault, then I power down the PLC => remove the battery => Turn on the PLC until fault led off => Power down the PLC once again => Mount the battery and turn on the PLC. After that, I cannot connect the PLC via either Ethernet or COM port. Please tell me how to factory reset the PLC.   Thanks in advance,
  8. Hi all, Does anybody have experienced problem with communication while connecting  32k and 16k plcs to same SCADA via factory talk linx?   Does anybody have got problem with communication while RSView32 and FTView were used simultaneously with same plcs in different pcs with different shortcut names?
  9. Hello! I have been working with a Factory Talk Studio V8.0 and my computer was crashed, "blue screen". After this, I can not open my panel project anymore, I only get information Failed to open factory talk private directory for the application. How to save my project?

  11. Factory Talk Linx 6.0

      Hi all, Iam currently working with a migration project from Rsview32 to FTView. I was able to convert the RSView32 SCADA to FTView successfully. Current scenario is like RSView32 (which was the existing pcs) SCADA is running in two stand alone PCs and Iam trying to line up the new Factory talk view SCADA in another system.Communication is taken from same ethernet switch to which all ethernet cables from 5PLCs in the field are terminated and from which RSView32 scada has taken itz communication. PLCs used there are 2 No.of  1747 L532E slc 5/03 OS302 Ser c Frn 10 & later and 3 Nos of 1747 L533E slc 5/03 OS302 aer c Frn 10 & later. communication taken via net eni (1761 NetEni) Ftview installed system is Windows 10 pro OS) Issue is while RSView32 scada is working properly, Factory talk view is not getting neither online tags nor able to play display for those linked with L533E processor.But everything is fine with L532E processor. I just tried with downloading L533E program to L532E processor and everything was getting. So am i missing something or what should i do to get proper communication with L533E processor.   plz help..Iam a beginner in this field.
  12. I currently have certain amount of Recipe data located in form of Excel file on to a PC with static IP address. Is there a way to get that data inside the Nj501 without using an SQL server as I currently have NJ501-1300 which doesn't support SQL. I am okay to send data to the SD card I currently have on NJ PLC as it is easy to get data from SD card to the NJ501.  If there is any example code or a link that helps me create i would be helpful. Thanks in advance. FYI: I am currently using NB10 HMI with NJ PLC.
  13. This is my first time to the forum and I am still very new to plc programming. I just had to move all of our software over to a new computer ( kind of new) it's running windows 7 pro. The same is as the computer before. Same computer name, same I'm, same file directory. However when I add tags in studio 5000 and reference them in the HMI, it says it is unresolved in route to the processor. It only does this for the new tags. I used the same shortcut and everything so I am at a complete loss here. What do I do.
  14. Hey guys,   I have worked on the FTView ME platform many of times.  I am now working on a FTView SE (Local Station) application, and I am having trouble connecting an Offline .ACD file to my program so that I can design.   If someone could help me with this it would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks in advance!
  15. Hello all  i'm looking for some software to record a 100 plus channels maybe with an ascii string from a PLC? i want to be able to assign each channel with a unit and a range, flagging feature would be nice.  - selecting the channels i want to view  - auto start recording - save file and start new automatically  -view and create reports  preferably no additional hardware because of the amount of channels. this is to record an operators every move so in events of damage or plant failure we can quickly identify the problem (point the finger)  many thanks dan
  16. Hello, I'm looking for a simple data logging software, something that doesn't require any programming skills. Thank you!
  17. Please if anyone can help me, recently I installed a redundancy in my Factory View V8.20 server, but started to show some errors: My alarm banner and event simply disappeared and now I can not read tag from my opc server (KeepServer Modbus), I see this tag in the studio, but at runtime they do not communicate. * Patches are up date. Tks! Vitor
  18. I have entered the messages many times into the Alarm Setup but every time i re-open the alarm setup, every message that has the Trigger Value=1 will be deleted.  Anyone have a similar issue?

  20. Data Logging with GT Designer3

    Hello, I am trying to log data using GT Designer 3 and I'm having no luck. I found some sort of online documentation and even going through the myriad of steps still find my self unable to log anything. I am using the melsoft project navigator and GX Works 2 to simulate the logging of just one 16 bit signed word with a constant value. As logging data is clearly not as simple as just specifying D100 or D200 as the devices you want to log, I am hoping someone else on here has some experience on this matter and can help me out.  Thanks for any help in advance.
  21. Expressions

    Hi forum members!   I am spinning the wheels on trying to get my expression to validate.  I am new to expressions so after trying for a bit I have thrown in the towel and am looking to the experts here to help me out. As you can see with attachment I am trying to change the color of the valve top hat.  I am needing 3 colors: Gray when closed, Green when open and in Auto, and Yellow when open and in Manual. I was asked to not change the PLC logic as this could be done from the SCADA level.. After looking at my application and attempt do you have any suggestions on what I am doing wrong?    My Expression:  If {::[Process]Program:Boilers_Main.LV_36101_New} < 3  Then 0  Else  If {::[Process]Program:Boilers_Main.LV_36101_New} >= 3  AND {[Process]LIC_36101A_PIDE.Auto}  Then 1  Else  Then  If {[Process]LIC_36101A_PIDE.manual}  Then 2
  22. Happily logging lots of parameters, at 1 second rate, and generating a csv file every hour, using Supervisor 3.2 and the ExportLog Supervisor script.  Had to make a dos batch file to collate all the hourly csv files in to a daily csv file, and zip it, and then delete the hourly dlv and csv files, as normally the daily zipped log files are just kept for reactive faultfinding when there is a need to investigate a daily log file using Excel. Problem I find is that the data logging list of parameters is not able to be set to a particular order, such that the csv columns are in a particular order.  Supervisor seems to rejig the order of parameters in the Logging workspace to its own purposes, and that order doesn't align with the order of parameters in the csv file.  Nothing that I could find in the manual or help or poking around seems to describe how the export ordering is done. Anyone been down that path?? Regards, Tim
  23. Logging History (CLX)

    I'll preface this by saying that our SCADA system is fairly large. Just the stuff that I worked on over the last 6 or 7 years probably has 5,000 - 10,000 tags (mostly real, dint, and bool) per PLC and there are 55-ish PLC's. There are also 30-40-ish flow computers that have 20-30 tags each in the system. Compared to the rest of the system my part is/was fairly small. We use ClearSCADA for the HMI. Kepware for the driver. Comm is supplied by everything from VSAT to Cell Modem to 3rd party wireless, to T1. Scan times vary from 15s to 30s, longer if there is a network hangup somewhere. The system is going to grow.  There is a need to log history once per second on a very few points and our HMI / Comm method isn't up to it. The idea to log 1 days worth of data in the PLC and move it to a "Previous Day" record at 00:00:00 has been tossed around but I haven't had time to implement anything. I started with some ideas this morning, came up with a possible solution, and tried to implement it in an AOI for simplicity. The AOI has become a stumbling block. Maybe my implementation is flawed but I think it's probably fine.  Here's the idea: Create a tag We want to log things like rate of change and pressure. Lets say I want to log the pressure on PT100.PV. My History tag would be something like PT100h REAL[24,60,60] and PT100pdh REAL[24,60,60] for current and previous day logged history MOV data to the tag Use pointers to move data to the array based on the PLC clock H, M, and S. It probably makes sense to put the routine in a Scheduled Task. If I remember correctly the PLC clock is always at UTC unless you "fake it out". I can either leave it alone (preferred... that way daylight savings time is not an issue) or add the appropriate UTC offset to the Hours value. I haven't tried pointers in a 3D array but I don't see why it wont work.  MOV data to previous day tag at the 00:00:00 MOV PT100h to PT100pdh at 00:00:00 and move 0.0 to the PT100h tag. I'd probably be lazy and create a Zero[24,60,60] tag with all zeros in it unless someone has a better, less memory intensive way to do it. Foreseeable issues 86,400 floating point values x 8 bytes is a shade over 691k x 2 for previous day = almost 1.4mB. This is a real problem. One way to mitigate it, somewhat, is to do away with the Previous day tag. The HMI will log the history the actual value for each tag will be in the HMI log files HMI load- Adding 86,400 floating point tags per PLC is going to add to the load in the system. One of the larger stations could have as many as 7 points that would be nice to historize. That's not possible due to memory constraints in the PLC that is installed there. AOI's won't allow for tag arrays that I can see. I tried to make a tag with the 24,60,60 structure in an AOI and it didn't like it.    I'm not sure if I actually have a question at this point. I'm basically thinking out loud to see what kind of feedback I'll get. The need to log is only important for "fault" analysis. 99.99% of the time the data will not be looked at. At this point I think that I've talked myself out of trying to implement this. I think the load that it would impose on the system would be too high. On the other hand, changing the array to a Boolean data type might come in handy for capturing a Boolean "glitch" and not be quite so memory intensive. I could also set it up to capture an hours worth of data and let the HMI historian do the logging. That's still 3,600 points though. 29k-ish bytes. Continuing with that thought, 5 minutes would only be 300 points and the HMI historian should be able to capture that. Maybe that's the way to solve the data issue? Capture X seconds (or minutes) and let the HMI historian log it? The HMI scan time is actually the issue so using the PLC for a buffer that offsets the scan delay may be the ultimate solution. Thoughts?

  25. How can I do a hardware 'factory reset' on a Q UDE CPU .... NOT using any software such as GX Developer or Works? I understand in the 'Write to PLC' menu it's possbile to Clear / Format / Arrange PLC memory - this isn't what I'm asking for. Under normal circumstances we routinely reload the PLC code / parameters / intelligent function data all remotely from our offices to our customers facilities and all works well. With the newer Q UDE CPUs it is possible to scan the network and effectively do a remote bare-metal recover to a new CPU. If the Q UDE CPU became unresponsive I would like to know how to reset the CPU back to factory defaults. In this scenario we would be asking local site electricians to carry out this reset procedure - after which we would reload the code remotely from the office. Documentation says power down CPU remove BAT for > 10 mins. I’ve powered down, left in STOP state and removed BAT for 16hours - then tested this morning – IP / program perfect and online immediately without battery connected. This retention is a wonderful feature – but if I want to deliberately do a hardware factory reset how do I do it ?
