  1. Hi all, I am new AB family, currently got into a new project but i have following doubts, Please clarify my following doubts. Project Details : I need  to implement 21CFR part 11 Compliance in AB HMI (1&2) -  2711P-T10C4D1 & 2711P-T6C5D As per my study, i understand that 21CFR can be imlemented by FactoryTalkView(FTV) ME edition V10.00. But HMIs currently available are programmed using FTV 5.0 version. Can we upgrade the FW version of HMI and convert the old HMI backup (from FTV 5.0) to new Backup (FTV 10.00) and load it  without disturbing the old backup HMI screens/settings ? So, Please give me solution .... If you have datasheets, documents, Videos also , kindly share with me. Thank You in Advance, Thanks & Regards, M.Monish Kumar monish.uatpl@gmail.com  
  2. Hello I have a scenario that's been bugging me for some time now. The scenario consists of a Micrologix 1400 that I need to control it's output from modbus/tcp. In detail what I really need is to be able to manipulate the O0:0 through modbus/tcp. The PLC would be the master and I would be the slave that triggers the connection to the master. I'm using a Modbus-Client on my PC and that should be the slave. Any idea as to how I can manage that? Currently I can send data to the master but everything is "stored" on B10 and I have no idea how I could write directly on O0. Thanks a bunch guys. PS: I'm borderline noob. 
  3. I am needing some guidance on an application I'm working on. I'm trying to obtain data from a profinet slave device to an Allen Bradley compactlogix PLC. I am using a Prosoft PLX82-EIP-PNC profinet-/ethernet-ip gateway as a median to allow me to access the profinet data. In RSlogix5000, I have created an EIP Class 1 connection for the profinet controller and AB PLC (248 words of input data, 248 words of output data). The same structure is created in the profinet controller (248 words of input data, 248 words of output data). The profinet gateway and PLC are communicating properly. From my profinet slave device, I have a specification that the data is structured within a 23 byte format. Connecting to my profinet gateway, I can see this data. I have attached an image that shows the specification of the profinet data and the data values displayed inside the profinet controller. From the PLC side, I'm needing to be able to see this data and put it in meaningful values. I am using the profinet slave device's internal temperature as an example to work towards. I'm not sure the best way to be able to handle this data and structure it to a meaningful value inside the PLC. (I am using the device's internal temperature as an example to try and get into the PLC).   Thanks,

  5. Hello I have a problem with dl-ep1 ethernet modul. I connected the module to a IL-1000 sensor amplifier. There is some problem with the communication. How should I adjust ? I made some pic about the trouble. The sensor is a IL-600 laser distance sensor. I dont know yet how can I get the actual value.  Anybody knows how to set this modul ? If I think correctly after the right setting, if I check the sensor output:0 then, I can see the actual value of the IL-600 sensor. But unfortunatelly this part also not so clear for me, because I can connect about 15 sensor this ethernet modul.  Thank you so much if anybody help.
  6. Hi Guys, I need your various suggestion and helps on this issues. Past few days we facing an issues whereby the gantry of Z-axis which using the Kinetix 5500 servo drive straight crash down on the conveyor. The fault was Excessive Velocity Error and the first thing we took a look was the teaching and the speed. Somehow the teaching value of the motor and the speed was alright, we are running the axis on 100% speed. We have no idea the fault might be on the wiring or it might be the acceleration of the motor speed. We use to run this machine onsite at various customer, and this happens past few days. We run out of idea and we will be very much appreciated if there is any helpful idea could be bring up to. Steps taken so far; - Verify encoder value - Checked teaching position - Verify speed,acceleration and deceleration value was correct - Power motor connector was shielded  
  7. Hi my problem may have a simple solution but i cant work it out. I need to use the Divide function but it wont let me use a decimal point in either Source A or Source B. Is there a way to use a decimal point in Logix 500 Math instructions? Im using an AB Micrologix 1400 PLC. Can you only use math instructions with whole numbers? is there a way around this? Thanks James

  9. Hello all. I have been working with an SLC 5/04 system, which houses various Digital and Analog INs and OUTs, up to Slot 29. I am currently mainly working with Slot 25, an Analog Input: 1746-NI16I. This is a system which has already been set up and has been running for the best part of 8-10 years. This particular card has had some spare inputs, one of which I am trying to connect to. In the Advanced Configuration, only a few Channels are actually "Enabled", and each channel is pretty much slightly different from another in terms of Input Type, Filter Frequency and Data Format. I am trying to set up Input 14, which is Channel 15, to "Enable" it, 4-20mA Input Type, Filter Frequency of 6 Hz and Data Format of either Raw/Proportional or Engineering Units. Now, after I have made my choices, I click apply, and then OK. I am then confronted by a pop-up which states: "Configuration Rung and Data Integer Data File Number: 25 Integer Data Element: 100 Rung to be inserted: XIC S2:1/15 COP #N25:100 #O0:25.0 24 At Program File Number: 4 82" I have the options of OK or Cancel. If I click OK, I now have LAD 4, Rung 82 Highlighted. This First Scan Bit and COP function were already here, but does that mean I have now altered what is being written to "#O:25.0"? I now Download the Changes. However, after all this, I am not getting any Analog input reading coming in from the Live PLC. What is this COP function? What does it do? How do I properly set up this Analog Card?   Thanks for your time, -Jame
  10. Average motor speed

    Hi Guys!   There is a task. I have a motor, and I can monitoring the actual speed. The question is how can I to determine the average speed, if I know just the actual speed. If the speed is zero, it must be ignored. So I have to measure when the motor moves. Anybody have any idea? How can I solve this problem. RSLogix 5000.  Thank you.  
  11. recover program from plc-5/15

    A machine was bought at auction which included PLC-5/15 module.  It did not come with a backup of the program.  Our maintenance technician said the program would not load and turned the module over to me (IT).  I notice the battery was installed in '92 so am assuming the program is lost.  Is their any internal memory or last ditch effort i can attempt to recover the program from this module?

  13. Hello I am  a Robot Programmer. Fortunately  I would be beginning the PLC Programmer Interview Process. From Initial CV Screening and first round of Interview. Screening was easier. But unfortunately I am not good with PLC tech questions apart from that is involved with Robot Programming. I need a few questions to judge whether the applicant is faking his experience or does he has the qualities. If any PLC Programmers can help me, It would be a great help for me.   Thank You
  14. 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?

  16. I have G310 and need to communicate with a AB PowerFlex 753 via Ethernet (20-COMM-E). I have tinkered with the Allen-Bradley drivers, which appear to be a MSG function, with no success. Has anyone done this?
  17. I have multiple PVP 1500's on the same network. From the one in my control room i need to be able to see what user is logged into what HMI. How would I address the system tag of another HMI on the same network would I use the IP address? thank you for any help in advance
  18. load cell SP4M-7Kg

    Hello guys, I have a system of 3 load cells (SP4M-7Kg) attached  to a Micrologix 1500 analog inputs. in the same PLC i have 3 coils for a vibrator, each vibrator is working with signal generators. and the load cells with an external 24vdc Power Supply. i see my load cells readings fluctuating too much even with the vibrator not working. if it is set lets say 70 Grams it is jumping from 68.4 to 74.8 going up an down never never stabilizes in one number, so i suspect am getting noise somewhere put a 100uF capacitor PLC inputs for the load cells but weight just increases more and more. How can realize where is the noise comming? what can i use as a filter? how can i improve this system? should i changed it to digital?   any help welcome! thanks.  questions?    
  19. Jiskoot modbus

    Does anyone have experience with a Jiskoot Insight controller? Im trying to establish communications between it and a MVI69-MCM. I have checked and rechecked all my settings. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Thanks
  20. Hi everyone, I just want to layout the structure of the question. I have a GOT2000 (GT27* series) that I have hooked up and communicating with an Allen-Bradley PLC. I have established connection and can pull out certain tags values from the PLC program in RSLogix 5000. While I can read the tag values, I cannot modify them (in certain conditions).  So let say that I have a User-Defined Structure named "Smoke_Detector" and here are it's available members: Smoke_Detector:   - ALARM (BOOL)   - ON_TIME (DINT) * DINT in Allen-Bradley but Signed Binary 32   - Battery_Life (REAL)  My question is that while I can read and display the tag and its members through the following:   - LAMP for Smoke_Detector.ALARM   - Numerical Display for both Smoke_Detector.ON_TIME and Smoke_Detector.Battery_Life But when I tried to modify the values via a Bit Switch or Numerical Input, it does not operate on them.  However, if these tags are members are just standalone tags, meaning that they are not within a UDT in RSLogix 5000, then I can operate/ modify them just fine.  Here are the things that I have tried: * Making sure that the permission are set to Read/ Write in RSLogix 5000 * Making sure that the tag definition in GT Designer 3 follows the structure where @[channel]:[Network #]:[Station #]::[Tag instance and member (e.g Smoke_detector is the instance and Alarm is member] Any possible insight and input are appreciate!

  22. Hello :I'm the creator of an Android HMI app,  I recently added Ethernet/IP connectivity with MicroLogix and SLC AB PLCs, but I have only been able to test it with a MicroLogix 1100.I'm really not sure if it works with SLC or with other MicroLogix models.If someone could try it, I would appreciate it. To access the test, from the Android device, open this https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.suppanel.suppanel on the web browser and install the Beta version.On the application you have to open the "EIP MicroLogic SLC Test" panel that contains some instructions. Thank you very much !
  23. Retrofitting old PLC5

    I have a customer that is wanting to upgrade his old PLC5 to something newer. I am still pretty new to the PLC world and was hoping to get some insight on possibly what might be the best fit. I still do not know a lot on this sytems. What I do know is that there are 5 input cards 2 output cards 1 analog input and 1 analog RTD card. Also the customer has a screen that uses rsview and he would still like to use that. Anyone got any suggestions on where I should start? Or even what other information I would need in order to find the perfect fit? 
  24. Hi guys,  I have been trying to sync up my RSLogix 5000 tag to GT Designer 3 (GTD3) objects but I noticed that GTD3 only recognize certain native data types from Allen Bradley Logix5572 Controller (Model 1756-L72).  In the documentation that I found, it show that certain AB Native Tags are transferable to GTD3 Data Type (See the attached file "AB Tags to GTD3 Tags" ) One of the User-Defined Data Type from the RSLogix 5000 that I am trying to sync to Text Display Object in GTD3 is called "UDT_MY_CLTR_INFO" here is it's hierarchy of inheritance from RSLogix 5000     Name                                                                     Force Mask                                                                                   Data Type MY_CLTR_INFO                                                     (...)                                                                                                 UDT_MY_CLTR_INFO      MY_CLTR_INFO.NAME                                                                                                                                           STRING           MY_CLTR_INFO.NAME.LENGTH                                                                                                                      DINT           MY_CLTR_INFO.NAME.DATA                                                                                                                           SINT[82]    In my exported tag which is a CSV file, it doesn't list the sub-classes MY_CLTR_INFO.NAME, MY_CLTR_INFO.NAME.LENGTH, and MY_CLTR_INFO.NAME.DATA, it would only list MY_CLTR_INFO.  How do I link up my "Text Display" Object in GTD3 with the tag "MY_CLTR_INFO.NAME" whose Data Type is STRING and GTD3 does not have a STRING Data Type?  I appreciate anyone that took their time to read my problem and any attempt to help me out. Thank you. 
  25. SMC pressure sensor

    Hi! Allen bradley PLC RS Logix 5000 I have a problem with a SMC pressure sensor (ISE30A if I remember correctly). When I monitoring the raw data from the ananlog module, I get about -7710 value, when the smc display shows about 0. There are another SMC pressure sensors too, and if the sensors displays shows 0 then the values what I get form the analog module is about 0 too, so the others work properly. But this one don't.  I already check the wiring. I have no clue waths the problem. Any idea from anybody? Thank you for your help.
