  1. Cognex VC5 Vision Controller

    I'm looking for some help in regards to programming an Omron PLC (CX-Programmer) to control a Cognex VC5 Vision controller to trigger CIC5000 cameras. I have the Ethernet/IP mapping and I am able to send user data to the VC5 controller at this point. I believe there a steps I'm missing within the Cognex Designer program to send notifications to the PLC but I'm not sure where to start. Any help in pointing me in the right direction is much appreciated.
  2. Hello, I'm looking for sample program to communicate Cognex DataMan 262Q, now i have connecting by Tags, 496 bytes input/output, but in manual i see :  
  3. I am using an Omron NJ controller and a Cognex Dataman 260 bar-code scanner.   At this point I can trigger the scanner and receive data from the scanner via ethernet/ip. My issue is in converting the response from the scanner to something human readable. The bar-code I scanned reads "872-3GSq".  The results of the scan are located in the variable Dataman_to_NJ[8]-[11]. At some point I know I need to use the SWAP function but I believe my lack of data type knowledge in this system is hindering me. How can I convert the value in Dataman_to_NJ[8] to the string "87"? Any assistance would be appreciated.  
  4. Masking out values

    Hello all,    I am trying to mask out some values out of a bar code from cognex data scanner.

I wanna to know how to mask such a big number. Any help would be appreciated. I would be using RSlogix5000   Thanks Pratik 
  5. Hello,    I have a Cognex insight 5100 camera connected to Allen Bradley L62 processor. The is working fine since the last year but sometimes the I/O module faults out with error code 16#0022. I looked online it look it needed a Ethernet cable change ( I did that but no results).  Then I looked at the firmware in the I/O module and firmware in the camera and I found a difference. The firmware in the camera is 4.06 and the firmware of I/O module in the PLC is 4.005. Can anyone help me resolve the communication issue ? I want to know how to downgrade the camera firmware or change the revision in the PLC ( which I cannot )    Thanks in Advance

  7. Hi, I am working on a project that requires connecting an EtherCAT network and an Ethernet/IP network to the built in ports of the NJ controller. I have been able to setup the EtherCAT network in Sysmac Studio, but I am struggling with the Ethernet /IP setup in Sysmac Studio. For the Ethernet network I have to setup the Motoman DX200 and a Cognex In-Sight 7000, as well a NA HMI which I was able to figure out and have it setup in Sysmac Studio. I have the EDS files for both Motoman and Cognex and the are installed in Sysmac Studio. I am a confused about what to put in the target variable and the originator variable, as well how can I connect these to my Global variables?
