  1. RS Logix Designer Tags

    Hi, Is that possible to define INT data type in EDS file so the Tags for the module in RS Logix Designer would receive INT data type in Input Tags not SINT? As marked in the image, the Logix Designer is receiving data as SINT but I want to have INT data type. Thanks Muhammad Azeem
  2. Flex i/o outputs shorting

    Hello everyone! Im hoping someone could shed some light on a issue im having. Im having issues with a 1794 ow8 output module. This module is used to control 8 hydraulic cylinders that push biomass into a burner. The overall problem is that roughly once every couple months a output will short in the on state and force a coil on, activating the vavle full time and burning out the coil. Each seperate output is fused on the module with a 2a fuse and each modules incoming power is also fused at 2a. The output that is shorted did not blow its fuse. The 'ON' light is not activated but 120v still runs through it. Since each valve has 2 coils and one is forced 'on' the main fuse will blow once the second half of the valve is activated because the valve is fighting itself. It is not just this one module, this happens on other modules that serve the same funtion as well. This is a contractor installed system but they have been no help so im left trying to figure it out. Could my seperate inputs be fused too high at 2a for this type of card. These are parker valves 120v 60hz with a max 1500psi pushing wet hog/chips. Any suggestions would be really appreciated!
  3. I have a "paddle wheel" style flow meter that I am trying to wire to my Micrologix 1400. It is a three wire device and there is a tag on it that says it can run at 6-36VDC. So, naturally, I thought to wire this to one of the HSC inputs of the Micrologix directly. I hooked the ( + ) on the meter to 24V, ( - ) on the meter to common, signal to the oscilloscope, and ground on the scope went to common. I see a small 60Hz sine wave @ like 5mv when the wheel is not turning. When the wheel is turning I get a small square wave but in the same mV range. It is not a nice smooth square wave either its all jumbled up with the 60Hz sine wave.  I hooked this thing up to a transmitter and scoped the signal and ( - ) in parallel with the wheel - I get a nice smooth square wave signal when the wheel turns. It is only at 4.5V though. My questions are? Why does't the paddle wheel give me what I am expecting directly? Also, what is the voltage range on the pulse that a micrologix will see? I am assuming that it will not count a wave with a 4.8V amplitude.... Thanks for your help in advanced! neech   
  4. Cimplicity 7,5

    Good Day There is a SCADA Cimplicity and controller Control logix 5561 AB. Communication between them is organized via Ethernet IP. It is necessary to transfer some tags from the Cimplicity to the controller Control Logix. How to do it better? Through Rslinx DDE OPC or write scripts in the Cimplicity? 
  5. 1.Can anyone say how can i communicate control logix plc with ethernet to serial converter. here i am not having any eds file.
  6. Does anyone here use this? Control Draw If so how useful do find it? Worth spending the time on learning or better off with another product? If so what? My application is going to be for in-house management and design of control systems for a food manufacturing plant.   Thanks.
  7. Hello, I am currently working on programming my first sortation system.  Attached is a blue print of the in feed conveyors and their loadout lines.  As boxes merge together they will be scanned by the barcode scanner.  From there we will be told which lane each box must go down, from the WCS.   My question is, without encoders, what would be the best way to control this system? Counting the packages as they pass through the photoeye? Or setting timers?   Thanks, James Sorting Conveyor Layout.pdf
  8. On-Off Temperature control

    Hi, i'm actually working on a project with a CPU33 CJ2M and a external analog output CJ1W-AD04U I'm trying to read the informations coming from a PT100 sensor and control a valve which act on the temperature. i'm kind of lost in this project because it's my "first time" with Omron ! Which function block must i use or how must i program this would you show me example ?  Thank you for the help guys.
  9. CJ2M-CPU32 and CJ1W-TC002 help

    Hi everyone. l have a project with omron plc but l dont know omron. l have CJ2M-CPU32 and CJ1W-TC002 also input and output units. do you have a example temperature control programme for this device ? 
  10. Could someone please generate PDF report for the ACD files on the attached .ZIP file? They are all RSLogix 5000 v20 files, I needed them for a university report which the deadline is today, but I don't have access to a computer with RSLogix 5000 :S Thanks!  ACD_files.zip
  11. Has anybody tried communicating Allen Bradley 5069 Compact logix PLC with Red Lion HMI ?  I am unable to communicate them in spite of adding AB tags via L5K file which gives me no error. I am able to see all the tags in Crimsion 3.0 software in development mode.  However, PLC & HMI are not communicating with each other. I am able to ping to both, using the same program in PLC of which I generated L5K file.  I think it may have something to do with the driver as 5069 is a new line of PLC Rockwell come out with only in 2016.

  13. To Infinity

    Hello.  This is my first post and I hope someone has a solution. I have a program calculating Gal/sec adding to a running total and have up to the end.  Using REAL I can accumulate up to 16,777,216 (2^24) and using DINT up to 2,147,483,648 (2^31), but I need to have my registers continue past these limits.  I've read through many topics here and have tried the Rockwell Knowledge Base but can't seem to find a solution that truly works.  I have gone so far as to transfer the DINT to a string, cut the string into pieces and reassemble them in an Odometer type concatenation. If anyone has a suggestion, I would appreciate it.  I know I'm not the only one with this problem. PS & BTW - I'm using Studio 5000 v24 with a 1769 L33ER
  14. Particulate Measurement In CX Programmer?

    I am currently in the process of an efficiency project for a company looking to measure at what point their process starts to create particulate (in this case, smoke) so we can accurately defer the smoke into a combustion chamber to be burnt off. My question is, is it possible to use the Dywer SERIES PMT2 Particulate Transmitter for our measurements using a CJ2M-CPU33 Omron Controller and CX Programmer. http://www.dwyer-inst.com/PDF_files/PDS/DS_PMT2Rev.1.pdf If we can use this, I am wondering which cards I would have to get for communication to this transmitter? CUrrently I have analog in and out, (DA041 and AD081-V1), and digital in and out, (ID211 and OC201). Any information on getting this sensor set up is appreciated. I am not familiar with this type of process control. *****FYI If this is not the correct topic to post this, please move it to the correct one.*****
  15. Thanks for your time.  We have purchased from auction a Getinge Autoclave (sterilizer) with Allen-Bradley controls (CompactLogix L32E).  The machine has a PanelView Plus 1000 installed.  A CD came with the machine w/ the following files.. HMI Project - (.apa file) Runtime (.mer file) Their is also a compact flash card installed in the CompactLogix L32E.  On the Panel View, their is an external Compact Flash slot, but no card, and on the inside of the panel view (if i remove the back cover) their is a compact flash card slot with a card installed.  I haven't checked what is on either of those cards yet.. We cannot get the program to load on the panel view. When the machine is powered on, the panel view goes through a quick dos setup screen and then the screen turns blue and we are stuck with an hour glass icon.  The icon will move depending upon where you touch on the screen.  I can boot the panel view in safe mode (by hitting the default button, then reset) at which point I get a message stating that the machines files may be corrupted and leaves me the options to Download new Firmware, or Continue.  Hitting Continue nothing happens, and choosing Download gives me Ethernet, or Serial options.  The Panel View is connected to the PLC via ethernet so I choose this option and it  gets stuck at this point. We do not want to make any changes to the program, but just to get it to run on the machine.  We do not have ANY of the software. Any advise is greatly appreciated. Craig
  16. RS Logix 5 Compare Tool

    Hi, Could someone explain or direct me to better understand the RS Logix 5 comparison tool? I'm comparing multiple PLC codes and having a little bit of trouble understanding what the concept of "deletion", "insertion" etc are portraying. Since, some rungs are labelled 'deleted' and 'inserted' in the comparison, however,  the rung labelled deleted seems to exist in the actual code?
  17. Hello admin, Im new to PLC domain , i have one OMRON CP1E N30 with in built RS 232 port and ladder program to run in Homing and forward and reverse motion. I want to control the PLC from a computer using RS 232 communication. From what little i read from manual supplied for programming ,i came to know that there are two type of commands C mode as well as Fins commands. My doubt is whether these commands can read/write CIO memory addresses that are used to set and reset the motor enable/disable in ladder program through CX programmer software? for example: in my ladder program CIO memory address 30.00 is the motor enable/disable address so if i want to control externally from a PC to enable/disable the motor ,which commands should i use and is there a format to send these commands as well as the value. I am planning to build a GUI in Labview to cotrol the PLC via Serial RS 232 . How can i do it ? Thanks in advance.
  18. Hi everyone! I am currently using both Motion controller Q172DSCPU and Simple motion controller QD77MS for my application. I spent time for Advance synchronous control with Motion controller QD172DSCPU. However, I wonder that is there any solution to combine synchronous control and interpolation control? For example, I need controlling 4 axes consisting of 3 axes for helical interpolation and 1 axis for linear position control. The problem is that all 4 axes start and complete position at the same time. Does anybody have experience in this? please share your ideas. Thanks in advanced.  
  19. Beckhoff Control panel testing?

    I am a technician at a large repair facility and we often have Beckhoff control panel displays come in for repair. I'm having trouble using Twincat to set up the buttons on a CPxx to test the buttons and assignable leds. We have a PC running windows XP with the twincat software, a CP9035 pci card to connect the CP to the pc, i can see the PC's display on the CP and also recognize the CP in twincat, just unsure how to map testable functions to the keys on the CP. Hope this all makes sense. Hopefully there is a Twincat guru out there that knows how to do this. Thank you!!
  20. Ground Loop

    Hello everyone, I have a quick question regarding Din rails, chassis ground and ground loops. Here is where I am getting confused. I connect my back panel to earth ground which, connects my control panel chassis to earth ground. I screw din rails on my back panel. Question #1: logically, my din rails are now connected to earth ground through the screws connecting to din rails to the back panel. Am I wrong here? As I have seen in many control panels, I connect a ground terminal block to my din rail and connect it to earth ground (the terminal block couples with the din rail through metal clamps). I now use that ground terminal block as a single point source to ground all my other components in the control panel (I connect my ground terminal block to earth ground using a wire).. *** the ten thousand dollar question is Didnt I just create a ground loop between my ground terminal block mounted on the din rail and my back panel chassis ground. For one reason or another the two different location might be at slightly different potentials causing current to flow. Where is my logic off here???? Thank you
  21. Hi, I'm a long time lurker and would like to start by saying thanks for all the help over the years, much appreciated!  This is my first post, please be gentle. I'm working through a large project with an L83 (V28) including 75 EIP nodes & 5 servos.  We have a need for quick real-time response of 2 cameras during a quick servo move (taking several pictures).  I've broken my program up into a few event driven tasks (allowing me to chose the execution time interval (5 to 8 ms for more important tasks and 20 ms for less important tasks, etc.)), along with these I have 2 periodic tasks: 1 for my HMIs & faults running every 30ms and 1 for this quick real-time response camera situation running at .5ms which contains my camera and servo logic.  Everything is running well and seems responsive and repeatable enough, but I am now adding the second half of the logic which will essentially double everything (2 up system).  This has made me consider the best structure approach: Is it better to have a few larger routines within a few larger tasks or better to have more smaller tasks containing an abundance of smaller routines or some other different mix? Thanks, JD43    
  22. Hello guys, Newbie on this site. I am looking for a run time free Allen Bradley .NET driver. Basically a library (.dll) that implements communication protocols to Allen Bradley PLC's ( CIP, Ethernet/IP, etc.). Can someone point me in the right direction please ?.
  23. hI.. I've asked for this in the past and, so far, haven't been very lucky.  Most of the projects I run into have 4 or 5 axis, lots of analog and sensor input.. or don't have the HMI part of the "Machine" I have a nice NJ 101-1000 with the NA 7 inch HMI.. along with a R88BD-KNA5L-ECT servo and a 50W  G5 motor.. type  R88M-K05030H-S2.  All On a nice rack with power supplies and some EtherCAT I/O  (It all functions .. even "MC Test Run" gets the motor to jog ..    But.. no way to "home" it.... The motor is in "rotary mode"   but... it's NOT got an Absolute encoder.. it's a incremental... sniff!     I just want it to stop on zero ..Or anywhere, and call it zero ... and make moves plus an' minus in degrees, that's all....  I assume I have to send it some signal (push button) while it's spinning that tells it it's in "Proximity" to home and it then it does something which makes it end up on zero.    I've homed a lot of linear motors (LinMot) an' they are very easy to work with.    But, Omron has 10 different homing modes .. and they aren't very well explained.  Well, they aren't explained at all in that 502 page user manual... you have to already know how to do it, in order to understand the explanation... Example:  Take the "Home Proximity Input Signal"  .. I can imagine what it might do, to help control a move to home.  I can even imagine what's making the signal .. and that somewhere there is a place where the homing parameters are set... like the "axis setting table"  .. but, it's not a Global Variable, or a Data Type .. I could imagine it gets into the system from the CN1 I/O connector? or some I/O somewhere? But.. I grow weary of imagining how this system actually works..  Building a simple working project, from a tutorial, or even downloading a simple working project (.smc2 file) and making the minor adjustments to fit my equipment ... would make all the difference in the world.   I've searched Omron's Libraries of .smc2 files.  Haven't found any yet that aren't on the level of "Top Gun" (a seriously complicated project for a 1-week training class) ... Oh there are several.. related to IAG object files .. but those Library files are not "working projects" intended to serve as a Tutorial.. they are limited projects, ready to be configured with IAG Object files, and "your" programming ... So that you can write the programs you need "faster"... which is nice... but, no help here. Somewhere out there.. is a nice simple .smc2 project file where you get to control a simple motor from the HMI  ..Preferably using an NJ CPU and a NA HMI .. home the motor.. jog the motor and input a few "go-to" positions... sigh!..   Like you would do in a One or Two Day class...   This kind of thing should be already be available in the Sysmac Library ... Thanks much for listening..  sorry about the rant.
