  1. Control Panel

    Is it possible to view the values / states of all inputs, outputs and workbits (e.g. 64.00 through 64.15 on Omron CQM1 PLC) on a single screen or control panel within CX-Programmer software?  I'm trying to troubleshoot some ladder logic that I wrote and need to know the values of 5 or 6 inputs/outputs/workbits simultaneously.  Having to scroll up and down through my ladder logic repeatedly does not work well with code that changes state every 5-10 seconds or so. Any help is welcome.
  2. Hello! I am new at programing PLCs. I am using TM241CE24R PLC with TM3AI4 analog input module. I can successfully read temperature from 4-20 mA sensor. I want to communicate with my PC (SCADA) via Modbus TCP. For testing purposes I am using CAS Modbus Scanner. I can read digital inputs, coils and holding registers successfully. Problem is that I can't read analog inputs (#300001 etc.).  I have nothing defined in GVL list. Is this causing problem? I also don't have any Modbus TCP Slave device in Ethernet_1. But how can be all the other registers read successfully?  Please take a look at screenshots below. Also check Error message from CAS Modbus Scanner. Where is problem? Please help. Thanks in advance!
  3. Hi new to the forum, and first post, however, I have found an abundance of great information here, so I was hoping someone might able to help me with an issue.   PLC is BRX BX-DME1-10ED13-D I am trying to read an analog output from a sensor that is capable of essentially outputting a mA signal proportional to where a printed line, or contrasting edge is at in its field of view. It is used for web guiding applications to make sure the web is tracking straight, so you can identify if the line or edge is moving to one direction or the other, and correct the web with an articulating web guide. I have attached the diagram for the sensor, but I cannot for the life of me figure out 2 things 1) The power supply to the sensor is listed as follows Supply current - From fife control +/- 12vdc 50ma (+)12vdc  AND   - 40ma (- )12vdc how do you provide both (+) and( -) 12VDC for the supply power to a sensor- 2 power supplies with the the opposite polarities grounded on each?   2) The outputs are listed as "Sum" and "Differential" so apparently there are two outputs, i dont know if anyone has come across these terms relative to sensors before, but I am trying to sort these out. According to the OEM  Sensor Output Range   -20 mA to +20 mA for line guiding     -20 mA to +10 mA for edge Guiding   I have attached the pin out diagram as well as the sensor spec sheet, but I am curious to see if anyone might have insight as to how I would get an analog input reading from this configuration? Thank you in advance for any help!     224615.pdf SE-26B Product Sheet.pdf

  6. FX3U Analog Programming

    Hi,  Anyone can help how to program a analog coming from a level transmitter? I have 8 analog inputs (2 unit of FX3U-4AD) to be read out into the plc program. how can this be possible. I'm new to mitsubishi analog. it is different from my experience(using siemens before).   Hope someone can help.   Thanks!!!   Marky
  7. HI I'm using PlC5/20 when I click on setup screen on the BTR block (to view the analog input configuration) i find the following message: No modules exist in the IOconfiguration for this R/G/M however the analog input signals is running properly....i just want enter the setup screen for configuration. I'm assuming that I need to enter I/O module in the I/O configuration? Can I do this without taking PLC to Program mode?

  13. A1S68DAV parameter

    please can anyone tell me how to set A1S68DAV analog output module parameters , such as voltage output and resolution? or is the parameter can't be set at aLL (ie, fixed at -10V to 10V)?
  14. Hi. We are struggling a bit with the analog IO on the EIC202 coupler. Have tried tag sets, and gotten the digital IO to work without problems, but not the analog. Any tips here? We are using 2x NX102 with 1x ID4442, 1x OD4256,  and 2x EIC202 with 1x ID4442, 1x OD4256, 1x AD2603, 1x DA2603 on each, for a redundancy-system. Software is Sysmac Studio. EIP connection.  
  15. 1746-INT4 Used for Position

    Hello, My apologies in advance if this is in the wrong place. I am working on a press that is using a 1746-INT4 to look at the position of the ram.  The press is using an LDT as the sensor reading back to the INT4. It obviously works. The press runs everyday.  I'm wondering if there would be a reason to use this instead of just a voltage or current analog card?   Thank you in advance for the replies.
  16. VFD Analog output to LOGO!

    Hullo neighbors,  We've got a LOGO! 0BA8 configured to use I8 as an analog input, and the goal is to read the current operating speed of an ABB ACS310 VFD. (we want our PLC to be able to react to any changes in speed from the VFD) Problem is, nobody can figure out how to hook up the analog output from the VFD to the analog input on the PLC. Have tried going from AO -> I8 and have also tried adding a connection from the LOGO! input neutral back to the GND... nothing works.  Attached is the terminal diagram for both devices with our poor attempts labeled. Any insights?  
  17. Hello! I am new at PLC programming. I am using TM221CE16R PLC with TM3AI8 analog input module and SoMachine Basic v1.6. I am trying to scale analog input value. I am using 4-20 mA pressure sensor. I managed my wiring so that I get raw values in SoMachine Basic. But I don't know how to scale these values to usable values. My sensor works in range 0 - 16 bar. What is best way to get values? Is it PID function block or multioperand function block using equations to get range 0 - 16? I will appreciate your help.   Thanks in advance!
  18. I am new to Automation Direct software and how the programs are written. Can anyone explain how they handle the analog outputs? My processor does not support the IBox that makes life easier, so I am having to do it the old hard way. I understand most of the logic of how its done for sending data to one channel but I don't understand how the channel selecting works. Can someone give me a programming example or explain how that works? I am looking at the online manual that Automation Direct provides for you for the analog module but I am having a difficult time trying to wrap my brain around how they do their analog stuff ><
  19. Hello - I've recently started my adventure into PLC programming and I've found this site to be very helpful. I took on a project that requires control of a cylinder - the short and skinny is that the cylinder will have to provide position feedback and stroke to various set lengths determined by position of a selector switch. So - If position 1 is selected, the cylinder will stroke 20"inches. If Position 2 is selected, cylinder will stroke to 25"inches - so on and so on.   My questions is how to best go about this process. I may be having a brain-block and not viewing this clearly, but something is not clicking for me and wanted some advice. Planned on using Allen-Bradley's Micro850 PLC (had one on the shelf, and CCW software is free so why not). Thanks
  20. Mad42 analog setup

    I am trying to setup a MAD42 analog card up in a cpu33 omron controller.   I need input 1&2 setup for 0 to 10 volt and can't get it to work. Any help is appreciated. 
  21. 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
  22. Hello. Can anyone tell me if there is a function for this in gxworks2? I want to even a jumpy analog signal. I am aware there is a MEAN-function, but that needs me to feed an array of buffered analog values to it. Which I am not familiar with how to do. Cheers

  24. 1746-NO8V configuration

    Looking for a little help.  Replaced a 1746-NO8V analog card that hadn't been working for years and the new card is giving a Configuration Error (Module LED flashes twice, all 8 outputs are flashing 12 times).  I have 2 other of the same cards in the same rack that have been working for a very long time and still working that seem to be configured the same way.  Is there any way to know what is wrong with my configuration.  or maybe my new card is just bad???  I have not yet swapped one of my working cards with the new card, have considered but really think I'm missing something.
  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.
