  1. 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!
  2. Micrologix 1400 Float TAG

    Hello,  I have a micrologix 1400 plc connected to a length measurement gauge. The gauge sends an analog value to the plc to an analog input. I convert the value into a dimension and send it to F8:0. but I need this value in three different steps in the program. Since i just have one element of float (F8:0) is there anyway i can store the value in a different location or create more floating point tags eg. F8:1. F8:2 ?    Thank You   
  3. We have an auto-clave unit purchased at auction roughly 4 years ago.   CompactLogix L32e and PanelView Plus 1000.  All has been working for us until last week.  Suddenly, the program seems to freeze up after around 30 seconds.  I can still touch the panelview and the touches are registered, (the mouse icon moves) but the program does not respond and I can tell the program is frozen because the clock which displays seconds stops counting. When i boot into safe mode (clicking white box on boot) the system does not seem to freeze at all.  I am able to navigate those menus w/o issue.  We don't have any of the software to connect to the PLC.  I understand this is a somewhat broad issue, but does anyone have any idease where i can start in troubleshooting this? or is their any further info i can provide which would be helpful?
  4. 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.
  5. I got into a project were they have 20 panelviews plus 1500 around the building, and they want to be able to serrate the displays accessible by the users based on the physical location of the panelview, for example Room1 should not see room2 but can see room3, at this moment we have a complete application with all the screens that have been downloaded to all panelviews, in order to avoid maintain 20 different ME applications I would like to ask if any of you had this problem before or any ideas on how to go forward with it.   Thanks
  6. 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?
  7. SLC 505 Message to TCP Port

    Hello I have a SLC5/05 and a Microscan MV40 smart camera which receives commands to a TCP port. Is there a way the LSC 5/05 can send a command to the camera using the MSG instruction or any other instruction? I would appreciate any advice 
  8. Point I/O 1734-AENT to LabvIEW

    Hello, I am new in PLCs, I hope you can help me. We are working to communicate point I/O 1734-AENT Series B to PC (LabVIEW) by Ethernet/IP. We need to read inputs from slots and need to write output to slots and the library we are using in LabVIEW needs class, instance and attribute parameter to comunícate with specific slot. I read those parameters you can configure that in the web page allen bradley (you put the IP point I/O in the browser internet) and then configure those parameters in the tab diagnostic messaging but for my case that tab is not visible, so I could not configure this part. Can anybody help for that? and help me to give me more information about class, instance and attribute CIP (Common Industrial Protocol). Best regards Carlos Luevano Test Engineer specialized in Development Software LabVIEW.
  9. SLC5/05 upgrade

    I'm being asked to come up with ways to upgrade an old 5/05 rack. A few years ago I thought I remembered Allen Bradley having a special rack that would allow a new processor control various old IO types. Does anyone remember the name of that system? and has anyone used it? We will probably replace with an Automation Direct PLC (per their request) but, want to offer an Allen Bradley solution as well      
  10. Actuator Sensor Interface

    I first saw AS-i at a factory this week and am trying to figure out what Allen Bradley modules can interface it. I am not finding anything, does AS-I go under some different name?
  11. FactoryTalk SE - VB Script

    Hey guys,   I am looking to query a database through FactoryTalk SE.  I will be scanning packages, and using that bar code to find a lane assignment from the database.     My question has to do with where the VB script will reside in the FactoryTalke SE program.  I want this script to run at all times.  I see that each screen has a "VBA Code" but I am assuming that these will only run when the screen is visible.   Where does this have to be stored in order to run all the time?   Thanks In Advance!
  12. Hi,  I am writing some routines to decode the data from my Input: data array to User-defined Array Parameters. Is that possible to have a generic routine to decode data coming from more than one module? I have two Module ENode and ENode_1. I have defined User-Defined parameters for the module. Can I make a generic routine to decode the data coming from these two modules and put them in the defined arrays?  the two arrays ENodeData[0] and ENodeData[1] have the Generic User-Defined parameters.
  13. Devicenet error 80

    We have a Micrologix 1500 with 1769 Sdn. The scanner is showing error 80. The run program switch is in the run position and the run led is on. How does a 1769 scanner end up in idle mode? This unit has been running for 5 years. No programming has occurred to the plc or scanner since install. 
  14. RS Logix Designer Tags

    Hi, Is that possible to define INT data type in EDS file so the Tags for the module in RS Logix Designer would receive INT data type in Input Tags not SINT? As marked in the image, the Logix Designer is receiving data as SINT but I want to have INT data type. Thanks Muhammad Azeem

  16. Hi, I am working on a project in Digi Module ConnectME9210 and sending data to Allen Bradley PLC (CompactLogix 5370 family). I am not sure which endian I should use to send data. Does Allen Bradley receive Data in Big Endian or Little Endian? I have another question as well. Can I make an EDS file to tell the PLC to receive data in UINT16, not as a single byte? Muhammad Azeem
  17. hello guys, I've got a project and i am not too familiar with the allen bradley PLCs. So I hope you guys can help me with some ideas. we have a palitazer in our class we have to modify the PLC's program and add an extra fisical bottons, pause botton(red botton) and continue botton(green botton)  some times the operator needs to get inside to the enclosure WHILE THE MACHINE IS IN AUTO MODE and that is why we need the stop botton, so the operator can push it and "pause" the machine in any moment. all the outputs and inputs should stay in their current state until the operator press the start/continue bottom, after this the machine should be able to continue the routine.  here is some info about the palletizer  http://bidonequipment.info/pdf%20files/FMC%20CORPORATION%20EZY-150%20Palletizer.pdf I dont know if this is possible or not I've been studyng the ladder, but I could find the solution.  I atached the PLC program in this file, thanks you very much we got the PLC Allen Bradley SLC 5/03  How can I use Temporary End (TND) can this help?   if somebody want to see the PLC program (ladder) just let me know

  22. Hello I downloaded a .mer file on the Panel view 1000 but it shows errors on the display graphics. i have configured the Rslinx communication several times by selecting the rigt PLC in Design and Runtime mode. I am using Facotry Talk view 8.20 and creating 5.10 runtime file. Please advice. I was able to correctly download and use the HMI on a similar machine. I dont know what am I missing on this one.    Thanks Pratik Jain
  23. Hi all,   currently as part of a project I am trying to communicate between a Schneider M340 plc and an Allen Bradley micrologix processor. I am programming the M340 and the micrologix has been installed by another supplier. they have mapped the Modbus registers on their side and given me a spreadsheet with these.  I am able to read values with no issue but I cannot write values back.   i've included a screenshot or the read_var and write_var instructions I am using. I would really appreciate any help if anyone has any insight on this   Mark
