  1. FX3U Stop Reading Channel Data

    Hello Everyone,  Need help with reading channel data of FX2N-4AD with FX3U Cpu. I have added all the logic and it works also. Problem is that, FROM function stop reading/fetching data from FX2N-4AD after some time i.e couple of hours and value just hang. Like 502 or something, untill you reset the whole PLC. What could be the problem. For the further info, -I have connected the FX2N-4AD on the right of fX3U-64M. -There are two extension blocks FX2N-16EX and FX2N-16EYR also added to the right of FX3U-64M -Order of mounting....FX3U-64M > FX2N-16EX > FX2N-16EYR > FX2N-4AD > FX2N-4AD   I have tried using the 2nd special module connected at the end, but It showed similar problem after few hours of running. THis shows that both Special blocks fx2n-4ad are okay. There is something wrong with PLC maybe? Please help
  2. 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.

  3. Hello people, I hope someone can help me with this. The system is connected with 8 PLC's. I want to transfer the data memory of a PLC to another like this: D850 from PLC2 to D900 PLC1 D850 from PLC3 to D901 PLC1 D850 from PLC4 to D902 PLC1 D850 from PLC5 to D903 PLC1 D850 from PLC6 to D904 PLC1 D850 from PLC7 to D905 PLC1 D850 from PLC8 to D906 PLC1 The data memory is an integer.
  4. Hello, Completely new to Mitsubishi PLCs and I need to use a date and time stamp for data collection purposes. We have a Siemens PLC as well and this has the data type "Date_And_Time" which is what I need to replicate. I have been attempting to write my own data type but am struggling with how to go about this as it is not straightforward and I cannot find anything about how the Siemens Date_And_Time is made up so I have nothing to go off. Does anyone have an example of a data type they have made that is the same? Or is there a data type which does this already in GX Works 2 that I just can't seem to find?  Please help!
  5. Hi Everyone, I would like to know  if two S7-300 CPU can exchange data via MPI protocol using X_Put and X_Get blocks. is it possible to test the data exchange via PLCSIM to verify. CPU1 = 313C-2DP CPU2 = 312 Please advise. Thank you.
  6. Hi Everyone, Learning the ropes of SoMachine V4.2 (coming from Arduino and Ucontrollers), I am using a Sequiental step style program and I am receiving 4 error messages. I'm trying to understand why it won't compile.   POU for implicit check is missing. It is recommend to add the POU. C0032: Cannot convert type "IeSFc.SFCStepType(iesfc,3.4.2.0 (systen))'to type BOOL "Same error for a different ladder (the output of ladder rung hits the transition step, the transition is a bool which kicks off the beginning of another ladder rung). C0032: Cannot convert type BOOL to "IeSFc.SFCStepType(iesfc,3.4.2.0 (systen)) Are these two different "data" types?   Thanks in advance!

  8. 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!
  9. Lets say I worked in a factory that made multiple models of parts. I need to run data tracing on the off shift due to certain models only running on 2nd and 3rd shift. I want one data trace to capture one group of bits at Model 1, Then reset the Data Points and run again for Model 2, Model 3 and so on. So the Bits that I am mapping with the trace need to change.  I can change the trigger easy enough with my program. I see in the manual the CPU has a "separate memory area" for trace settings. Can this area be accessed from the Program so I can set my bit addresses to monitor to a word or E_?   See attached pic for clarification of what I aim to change through the program.   
  10. Panasonic FP0 C14RS

    Hi All, I am new to the forum and new to programming PLC and like every newbie I have a lot of questions - Brief History of me - I had been a Manufacturing Technician for 20 years and recently got my BS on Electrical Engineering and now working as an Equipment Engineer. The main reason that got me interested in PLC's is my degree,  the field that I would like to get into and a recent problem that arise at work. My experience with PLC is very small in programming, some in TS I/O- However I had been studying by my self to the point that I built a test bench to understand it better and in the future create different project for learning purposes Currently I am putting together a tool Alarm delay program - Basically my exhaust sensors trigger an alarm (input signal turns OFF) before its send  the signal to my tool for abort, I want to create a different Alarm which will cause a different response from my tool and delay the original Alarm by 10 min and then trigger the original Alarm - PLC = Panasonic FP0C14RS  Reasons: Create a different Alarm: The response from my tool to this alarm will allow me to return my material back from the tool and put it in a safe spot. Delay the Alarm: Use a timer to perform this tasks - This the time that approx. it takes the to return the material. Trigger the original Alarm: I need to know which sensor was the problem in order to properly TS- So after my timer is complete - I want to know which sensor created the original Alarm My Current problem: I created the LD program, and while the original alarm stays OFF the program works fine - but since my exhaust sensor are always on - If my original alarm is trigger for  a few seconds, just enough to start my Delay Alarm: I dont have a way to know which sensor trigger after my Delay(Timer)is complete,  I reset my relays in order to be ready for new alarm.   Please provide feedback to my program - I know currently is not the best way or efficient way to do this and there are better ways, but my plan is to get it to work and then later revisions improve the way the program can be written   Thanks in advanced for your feedback and help Exh_delay_inv_rev1.pro
  11. Every time my rsview32 project starts up all the alarms which are set up to alarm on 0 tag value show up on the screen even though the bit in the PLC is not in alarm condition. I believe this is because the communication between RSView32 and PLCs is not established yet and the tags are seen as having value of 0 in the HMI. Is there a way to disable or suppress these tags at startup to give enough time for the RSView to update the values so the false alarms are not being displayed?
  12. Modbus Addressing in Weintek HMI

    Modbus addressing in Weintek HMI to poll data from Temperature sensor through RS485. In my system i have connected Temperature sensor to I/O Scanner has output in terms of RS-485 which directly connected to COM3 Port pin. No. 6 (as Negative) & 9 (as Positive) of HMI (Model No: MT8071iE) and HMI connected to PC via ETHERNET. I want to read temp on HMI screen via MODBUS protocol. So, can you please provide me instruction about addressing of MODBUS register in Easy-Builder Software so can read data of corresponding register. Because when i do compile i got an error like " Device no Response". I hope i will get reply from your side as Fast as possible to overcome this problem. Thank you.

    Hello all ... i am a new plc user.. i am using D500 for taking value as it is a latched register.  i am taking value for a flow meter. i have two questions. 1. how totalizer is calculated from flow rate as my flow rate is in m3/h. 2. the value of register is gone upto 32000 approximately... i want that this value to go on.. i mean how 32 bit register is declared in plc .. a
  16. CP-1E Error

    Hello,  I am using Omron CP-1E PLC and expansion module 16ER and tc module.  When plc operated alone it goes to run mode when expansion module is connected either 16ER or TC module plc ALM/ERR led turned on.  
  17. Please assist me with the following; regarding the ME96SSHA-MB Power meter data transition with Melsec-Q series PLC; We acquire to read various values on dedicated Modbus storage address registers at the simultaneous into a Melsec-Q series PLC via Modbus (TCP or RTU)  for calculation purposes. Naturally, since the reading of these variables are to provide accurate instantaneous results, it is a requirement that these values are to be read at one scan.   However, as can be seen below, there is a gap in address register range – of which, if all of these are scanned simultaneously, yields an exception error when read. This error is only avoided by scanning these data sets separately – which is not ideal for our application – since accuracy in calculations is imperative.

  19. Mitsubishi GX Works Bugs??

    Hello I have been using GX Works 3 for a while now and I have discovered a couple of things, maybe bugs. I have not had any training for the software or hardware so maybe I did something wrong. 1 Labels. If you sort a global label table into any order other than the unsorted order that appears by default you are unable to create, delete or edit any labels. Our Mitsubishi representative discovered that if you click on the column header between 'Data Type' and 'Class' the order does not change but now editing is available. This, it turns out is a really bad idea. It seems the position the label was in when it was created is preserved, I think this is the unsorted order you get by default. If you sort the list and then delete a label it is possible that the label that should be in that position is also deleted. I have attached a small project to demonstrate this. Open the Global Labels notice the order they were created. Now change the sort order, click on the column header I described earlier to make them editable and then delete the label in position 1. For a while I thought this was the only problem but recently there has been a number of instances where I have created a label, given it a carefully selected address only to discover that it is being overwritten by another variable. I have not been able to work out exactly what is going on but I believe it is connected to the sort order of the labels. Also if you sort the order and change an address, have you changed the address of another label? The only solution I have found is to keep label tables very short so they are managable without having to sort the order, that is probably good practice anyway 1 Axis software limits. I have been using a number of axes in pairs, in incremental mode as caterpillar feeders, using FX5U-40SSC simple motion modules. I had a problem that the axis synchronised to follow would suddenly stop moving, the customer was having to power down the machine and start again. This problem persisted for months with Mitsubishi scratching their heads unable to fathom it out and ultimately stating that the problem must be in my code somewhere. It was suggested by the customer that it may be getting to a software limit, I showed the customer that the software limit was disabled in the setup and it was confirmed by Mitsubishi that it was not the problem. guess what, it is a problem. Once the actual position reached the limit of the double word memory it would stop moving. The solution is the take the servos out of synchronisation in order to set the position (datum) to zero every cycle. Unfortunately the drives do not always re-synch on the first attempt so you have to keep trying till it does, this now causes slight variations in cycle times but it works. Andy EDIT: I have since been informed that to disable the software limits they must be set to zero. This implies that the Enable/Disable setting is invalid and the limits are defaulted to their respective max values. Surely a default to zero would be more appropriate.     Label Test.gx3
  20. Dear masters! Hello! I have a PanelView Plus 1250, firmware 6.1, and I would like to know if it is possible to export to csv or .txt and save the alarm history to an external USB memory from the terminal? Today I'm typing the whole alarm history manually...
  21. Good morning all! I'm just getting into this world of controls and automation and need a way to simplify my life when it comes to discrete alarms. I do not care to separate them by tag so long as I can create a personalized for each bit/alarm triggered. What is the best way to list hundreds of alarms in a single tag? Can we make use of a struct data type? If so, what would this look like? I understand I can use something like a tag of data type word, such as "Faults" MW100 and then reference M101.0, M101.1... M100.0, M100.1 (notice the order), but this only allows me 16 total discretes per tag.  Sometimes I'll have more alarms than 16 and sometimes way less. I'd rather not seperate them in this manner if I can avoid it. Your assistance is much appreciated!   [edit] Siemens TIA and WinCC v15
  22. CP1L connected with scanner symbol DS-4308 reading 2D data matrix,  with RS-232 on board CP1W-CIF01 Hi all, need some help because I can't read the information. Let me explain, I have a PLC, " CP1L-L14DR-D " with a RS-232 option borad " CP1W-CIF01 " , a scanner Symbol DS-4308, and I'm trying to read a data matrix 2d barcode (I don't know if that matters). so I build a cable with the next configuration, (one side male and the other female) PORT CONFIG PIN OUT SCANNER CABLE RJ-50 TO RS-232 PINOUT Maybe I'm missing a connection? a bridge? power supply ? ground?   in the program, I only have this to check the communication,       When my reception flag complete (A392.06), my instruction RXD is going to execcute, reading in D1500 the data. if is any error in communication (A392.04) or overflow (A392.07), my port is going to restart (A526.00) (ignore w0.03) with the followign config: (9600, 7,2,E, RS-232C, End code: Received Bytes 3       and I'm reading only, data on D1500 and D1501, and the data makes no sense.   with the configuration of End Code: CR, LF,          can't make it work, I read nothing. and if I change the END CODE: Received bytes to 4,      don't work. and my flag A392.04 go to ON.   PLC HAS 4 PIN SWITCH, ALL ARE OFF The configuration on the scanner is setting to default and then config to RS-232 Standard.   So, what I'm missing?  bad connections? plc don't support? scanner config? program?      
  23. Hello All, What are the methods to get the monitoring data from A series PLC? I know its not supported any more, interface modules are not available...,    So the basically,   If I want to write customer software (may be embedded) what is the protocol I need to follow? I am connected to CPU unit by the way, there is no other modules except few digital and analog interfaces on PLC. Thank you in advance for your direction, direction in any way would help!
  24. 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.
  25. Double address - Alarm

    Hello, I would like to see your logical opinion about this situation and in which part of system where I need to find solution - software or in the physical field. Subject: Twelve old system based on Mitsubishi PLC AnS series, Profibus Here is pneumatic transport, with 5 lines, each line have a shredder and discharge valve. A few months ago, when line 1 works , display shows line 2 and vice versa, it was first problem, but the system was still working. From the last week system doesn't work. On the display appear line 3 in works, but system can not started. Alarm shows Double address (perhaps two valves have some address), Alarm still appear after reset and even all lines are turned off. What is your opinion where to find proble (PLC, I/O moduls, cables,...)
