  2. Sequencer Input

    I have a program using the SQO instruction. However, I am looking to control my program with a sequencer input. I have never used the sequencer input before and I have 16 sensors to move cylinders using the sqo.
  3. Safety Unlock Password

    Hello All, I have a guardlogix processor that I just safety locked with a known password. When I tried to unlock, that password didn't work. Upon reading a bit I realized that the lock and unlock passwords are separate. I never set the unlock password but blank doesn't work. Could it be a leftover due to program copy paste or is there a way to find/reset this unlock password.    
  4. Logix data tag structure

    Can anyone advise if there are data structure #s associated with each of the data types in Logix?  Example if it is a Bool, I believe Logix advises it is a 32 bit number.  But is there an "under the hood" data type reference number for each Logix data type?  I.E.  if it is a Bool, that is a RA data type #1, if it is a DINT, it is a RA data type #2, etc.  
  5. Dear colleagues and siemens experts, I''m new in siemens. As all I make my program for PLC, but I need help with PID autotunig (pretuning) I use : 1.CPU 1214C DC/DC/DC (6ES7214-1AG40-0XB0) 2. 6ES7214-1AG40-0XB02. 16IN/16 OUT DC/DC/DC (6ES7-223-1BL32-0XB0) 3. 2x 6ES7231-5PD32-0XB0 ( 4 channel RTD analog module - PT100) We use 7(seven) Pt100 points with 7(seven) heaters ... so I need 7 additional outputs..... [you can see example of wiring in attached pic 6es7231-5pd32-0xb0-modules.jpg] Maximum heating point is around 220 degrees. I make my configuration for PID_Compact : 1. Basic settings 1.1 Controller type : Temperature : °C Set mode to : Pretuning ( sometimes I make it Automatic mode) 1.2 Input_Per(analog) -----> Output_PWM 2.Process value setting: 2.1 Process value limits: Process value high limit : 220.0 °C 2.2 Process value limits: Default 3. Advance setting 3.1Process value monitor : Default 3.2 PWM limits Minimum ON time : 0.5 sec Minimum OFF time : 0.5 sec 3.3 Output value : Default 3.4 PID parameters : Default I start Commissioning with these steps : 1. Measurement : Sampling time 0.5 Start 2. Start PID_Compact 3.Tuning mode : Start When I try first time my setpoint was 90 degrees , second time I try with 120 degrees. After 4-5 hours it stop more in Progress bar it stop when I reach a little more then 50%, and I stop PID. For heaters it is not normal to process to be 4-5 hours, there have some wrong. Example with 120 degrees : During process I make : When Input_PER reach 120[1200] degrees I stop physical access to heaters. When Input_PER reach 100[1000] degrees I start physical access to heaters So 4-5 hours is soo long time for this type process. Time to reach 120 degrees from 100 degrees is around 2-3 min. Time to fall from 120 degrees to 100 degrees is around 4-5 min. Total time for one whole cycle around : 8min. Sometimes when I set setpoint to 140, 150 degrees it writes me that output set value is to high after I give Start Pretuning ? Even sometimes when try for 120 degrees .... As all I want to start PID pretuning (autotuning) with setpoint 140 - 150 degrees. Which are minimum requirement to start PID autotuning with PID_Compact ? Could you send me some very simple example and steps that I must make or only steps ? I attached files in dropbox with images and program example, because I can't attached nothing here. This form don't give me access to attached something. So link is here : Even program is there. Thanks in advance Best regards : Altan
  6. Compactlogix 1769-L35E locked

    Hello! I'm working on a project. I cannot get online with the PLC. The compagnie who made the program does not exist anymore so they cannot help me. Does anyone knows how to unlock a locked controller ? Do you know a compagnie who can solve this kind of problem ? Otherwise my only option is to wipe the all thing and reprogram it .... which would be bad. Thanks !
  7. Hello, my question today deals with a particular way of coding in RS Logix 5000. I have two routines ( titled "Gauge" and "Alarm"). where rung 10 in Gauge is the exact same as rung 2 in Alarm. How can I make a change to rung 10 in Gauge and allow the program to automatically make that same change in rung 2 of Alarm? The only reason these two routines have the same rung at 10 and 2 respectively is to make trouble shooting easier whenever an issue arises. So instead of searching through the "Gauge' routine to find out where the fault is, I can easily look at the "Alarm" routine and find out what the problem is. I just want to be able to make changes to the Gauge routine and find someway to allow the program to automatically update the exact same rung in the Alarm Routine. Thanks.
  8. Automation professionals, I would like to read the display values of a red lion DP700 in a control logix PLC. I was able to successfully integrate both devices through EtherNet / IP and I am geting the corresponding values in a DINT register in the PLC. But the problem is that the value in the PLC register is not in the same format as in the DP700 display. The display reads the length of a product in inches like 288.484 etc. Where as the value in the register is a 10 digit number like 1133526516. For sure, there is a definite correlation between these two values but I am not able to figure out the exact relationship as a function of a formula. I have given below 25 data pairs for your analysis. I tried to find out the scaling factor (slope and offset). The scaling that I found fit the first 10 records but did not fit the remaining 15 records Can you help me to find out the relationship between the ? # DP700 PLC register 1 288484 1133526516 2 288627 1133531202 3 288631 1133531333 4 288739 1133534872 5 288741 1133534937 6 288742 1133534970 7 288746 1133535101 8 288757 1133535461 9 288776 1133536084 10 288796 1133536739 11 241060 1131482972 12 241043 1131481858 13 241027 1131480809 14 241032 1131481137 15 241055 1131482644 16 241038 1131481530 17 241078 1131484152 18 241025 1131480678 19 241030 1131481006 20 241037 1131481465 21 241040 1131481661 22 241023 1131480547 23 241053 1131482513 24 241041 1131481727 25 241077 1131484086

  10. Currently we have a remote I/O module to connect with our PLC, yet it's not showing up whenever we try to connect it via inside RS logix 5000.
  11. Hello All, I want to read data from a Control Logix PLC, into a PLC5/60, using Ethernet and a MSG instruction in the PLC5. When verifying the MSG instruction in the PLC5, I get an error message. "Target Address in invalid". Once I figure out how to do this I need to replicate it in another PLC5. Scope is to read the status of 4 paint pumps controlled by the CLX. If any of the 4 stop, the PLC5 needs to know, because it is controlling the paint application equipment. Source data resides in a Control Logix 1756-L63. The tag is INT type, 4 elements long, and the name is PUMP_STS_B2. The IP address of the CLX is There are 2 ENBT cards, one in slot 1, and the other in slot 3. is slot 3. PLC2,5 / SLC Mapping has been created in the CLX. File=421 Name PUMP_STS_B1 and File=422 Name Pump_STS_B2. The file mappings represent a binary file created in each of the PLC5's B421:0~4 in Booth 1, and B422:0~4 in Booth 2. The PLC5/60 is Enhanced series E model using the Ethernet side card. The IP address of the PLC5 is I also created MG file types in each of the PLC5/60. MG420:0~19 in each processor. This was necessary to use the MSG instruction in the PLC5. I have searched the forums for examples of how to do this with no solid results. I am trying to follow the best practices of reading the data into my PLC so anyone who follows can tell where it is coming from. While the IP addresses are not closely related they should be able to communicate. I say this because all of our PC's are on the 4.2.6.XXX network on a sub net and we have no issue communicating with the IP address. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Mike Carter
  12. I'm having a bit of difficulty with the MSG function on a logix5000. I'm simply trying to get a REAL value ("BH5_Flow") out of another logix5000 and assign it to a tag in the PLC. I've created a MSG function and created a new tag "BH_5_Flow_MSG" for the message, and created "BH5_Flow_M" for the value that will come from the MSG function. When I click the "..." button to bring up the config, I put the following in: Message Type: CIP Data Table ReadSource Element: BH5_FLOWNumber Of Elements: 1Destination Element: BH5_FLOW_MIn the PATH tab, i then put the following in: Path: LocalENB, 2, [iP ADDRESS OF SOURCE MACHINE]When I test the edits, I then get the ERR bit activate with error 16#0004 when the message rung runs. Anyone got any ideas where Im going wrong? I've practically copied another MSG instruction from further up the ladder but it doesn't seem to work
  13. Ownership being lost

    Hi, we have a system that has multiple cabinets using guardlogix point I/O. For some reason that I cannot explain as of yet we sometimes loose ownership on one of the cards and have to reset it. Has anyone experienced this before and if so what was the cause and solution?
  14. I need to change the IP address of an existing PLC. Only access I have is remote (VPN). Is there any issue with downloading the same program - with the IP address changed - to the existing processor? Then change the local network range to match, etc...
