  2. Homing servo motors

    Hello everybody, I have a question about homing servo motors. I have a project with new servos from Omron and I would like to know what is the best way to do homing for the servos and how often. Before when we have servos with encoders I was making special homing sequence and was calling by some event. I heard that new servos from Omron pretty smart and remember own position without batteries. So with this 'new generation' of servos what is the key to keep machine robust, easy for motor replacement without useless programming stuff. Regards, Scotty

  5. 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 !
  6. 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?

  8. 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. 
  9. 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.
  10. Omron cp1e power indicator turns off

    The plc runs for a minute and then the power turns off while the supply voltage is ok. I was sure that it is for the power circuit problem inside the plc. As I had a spare power circuit of cp1h and I checked it had same voltages output (5vdc, 24vdc & 0), I replaced it. Now I cannot connect it with my laptop to change to run operating mode. Could anyone help me?
  11. Adept Omron Smartvision MX

    Hello, new user here also a new user to all Adept Omron products as well. I have seen a lot of information based on the Omron Smart Controller EX - mainly connecting the controller to the Adept Ace program. I do understand that the dongle is needed to enabled into the controller, but can this same process be the same for the Omron Smartvision MX?  Thanks.
  12. Who Have Someone connected Citect with Omron CJ2M CPU32 ? Can i use it? Device communications wizard -> CJ Seres PLCs -> Ethernet    or need to Finsgateway software.    [Setting] 1. Boards TCPIP / 0(Address)  2. Port -I192.168.100.10 -P9600 -U (*PLC: 192.168.100.1 , PC: 192.168.100.51) 3. I/O Device 0/1/1/      /   OMFINS3    [MANUAL]  ----> Fallow the manual ONLY CS1, CV Need to setting  w/n/u/V  or w/n/u/S CJ2M do not need to this setting ?       I/O Devices Form Complete the I/O Devices form as instructed, with the following specific information. I/O Device Address The station address for an Omron CV Series PC is specified as follows : w/n/u/V for CV mode or w/n/u/S for CS1 mode where w is the FINS network address (1-127) n is the FINS node number (1-126) u is the FINS unit address (0) There are no defaults for w, n, or u, but if you do not specify a mode (with a V or S), it will default to CV mode. The FINS node number should be the same as the IP address node number. The FINS network number should be the same for all ETNs on the Ethernet segment. There is no relationship between FINS network numbers and IP network numbers.   Thank you..
  13.  Hello    I need to sent data between PLC CP1L-M30 and  Hyberterminal with serial port (RS232C port 1) ,but there isn't data show up . something is wrong? Could you advise me? my ladder as below  
  14. Hello Omron programmers, have a nice day to you all. I just need your help in this, i hope you have explanation.  I added a few sequence to the machine with compare instruction D2255 and D2259 as memory data. I really wonder what’s going on. D2255 a decimal value of 9, when it transferred to compared instruction it’s 9, but when D2255 become 10 or above, when it transferred to compared instruction it will become 16 or above, there is an additional of 6 to the decimal value when it more than 9. I attached the photos of it for more details. Can somebody please help me? Thank you.            
  15. I am trying to use FINS/UDP network to communicate with a Siemens device (at a customers site over seas from my home office), today I attempted to set up a SEND command based on information my customer received from a local Omron representative but had no luck.  I feel like I am missing something in a setting somewhere, does anyone have experience doing this?  I am using a CJ2M-CPU35's built in Ethernet IP port which is also communicating to 5 other Omron devices over Ethernet IP, so I am wondering if there is an issue having both networks. Thank you!
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Struct as FB input

    Hello,  I am trying to define a struct as an input variable for a Function or Function Block. For example the function AddDelimiter (This is a standard Sysmac function), has a input variable with the variable type Struct, an it is possible to couple a struct to this input (See picture below). If i try to make my own function block with a struct or Structure as an input data type, i get the following error (See picture below). When I try to define a struct from the data types (In this case struct: Test) it doesn't give a error. But when I try to couple a struct to this input, that is a layer deeper than the function block struct i get the following error (See picture below). How can i define a struct as an function/ function block input? Thanks in advance.
  19. What is the Use of Number data type for CJ2 Omron PLC? it takes integers as well as float values . we can not map it to D or H memory area.
  20. After getting my logic to work. I went in and implemented the logic with my plc. It worked but in order for me to test part 2 of it, I have to turn the machine off and turn it back on as part of a reset feature. When I turn the machine back on, it wipes out my logic and goes back to its default logic. It's almost like I never changed anything. I connected my pc to the plc and connected to plc, pulled up the code and ran it on "Online Mode" where i can make changes and send them to the plc and yet again it wipes out whatever changes I had made and goes back to its default. Any suggestions?
  21. So a little new to PLC's especially Omron PLC. I have this machine from Japan that uses Omron CP1L which needed some modification. I made the modifications and uploaded it on to the PLC. When I try to put it in "run" mode it gives me the "Failed to change the operating mode the operation mode may be still changing in the PLC" error. After that the machine does not move even with the orginial plc logic. At first I thought it was my logic and so I double checked and did it again. Same thing occured. Has anyone experienced anything like this? How can I fix the PLC? Thanks
  22. CIP betwen CJ2M and NS8 HMI

    Hello I'm quit new in this world and i have several doubts about the comunication of EIP. I'm trying to capture the comunication betwen a CJ2M and an NS8 HMI. I was trying with MolexEIPtool, so i could understand better the communication process and i did a little. Here is the wireshark capture of an get all attributes request: CIP_Molex_tool.pcapng  (The last two packets are  another unconnected request). I can see the request for list services, the register sesion request and the Forward open request. Then, i can see the request for service "get_attributes_all" and how the cj2m responses with all the attributes. Finally, the forward close request. But when i put my computer betwen the two devices, i cant figure it out what is happening. Here is the capture: CIP_OMRON.pcapng I can see that the packets are "SendUnitData", so i think it is a connected transmision, but wireshark cant decode the rest of the frame, so i dont know whats going on. Thanks
  23. Does Omron CP1E support Ethernet/IP? i think it only support FINS not ethernet/ip . Can anybody confirm this?
  24. Does CJ2 Omron PLC support absolute or symbolic adress or both? If absolute then we have to give FINS command to communicate over ethernet/ip? Need an urgent help . 
  25. Remote I/O weidmuller

    Hello,  I am trying to connect a Weidmüller UR20 Ethernet I/P  (Hardware version 1) to a Omron NX1P2 PLC via Sysmac Studio. I have imported the Weidmüller EDS file into Sysmac studio and connected two tags to the target variable 101 and 102 (I also tried using a array of bytes and a single word).   When I transfer this configuration to the controller and set the controller in run i get the following error: Tag Data Link Connection Failed (0x84070000). I have tried to update the firmware of the Weidmüller I/O but this doesn't seem to help. Also the web interface shows no connection with the PLC. I also tried to setup the connection with the CX network configurator but this gave the same result. Is there someone who can help me with this problem Thanks in advance.
