  1. 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.  
  2. Masking out values

    Hello all,    I am trying to mask out some values out of a bar code from cognex data scanner. Here is an example of what I am trying to achieve Data from Cognex: 2275019xf1-8877R215BA1234567 i just need 2275019XF1-8877R215B    I know i can program the bar code scanner to not to read but that would cause a lot of downtime. I wanna to know how to mask such a big number. Any help would be appreciated. I would be using RSlogix5000   Thanks Pratik 
  3. 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

  5. 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?
