  1. new to mr.plc....also first post on forum.. i have used omron software for years but i just came across brackets in an  instruction. i understand how the MOV works..moves data to a destination but what does the bracketed [dxxxx] mean. move to both locations? or something else? i need to understand this for future project. thanks also if there are rule to posting or if i did something wrong please advise.
  2. Hello everybody, I reinstalled CX-programmer yesterday and installed it again and it worked without any problem. I wanted to open CX-programmer this morning, but it didn't. However, I can run CX-P as Administrator, but then I don't have access to my files. CX-P gives this screen when trying to open it: Does anyone knows how to solve the problem? I already reinstalled CX-P today and also restarted my PC. Thanks in advance, Olivier  
  3. Hi all ive been given a small test cabinet to play around with and test on, it has a cp1l-el plc and a mx2 inverter, ive been looking at how to control the inverter and cant seem to find a way to program it how i want. the plc has no modbus connector so it cannot be done that way i want to be able to set the frequency and be able to start and stop the inverter through the control pins. let me know if this is possible, thanks
  4. No option for CJ varient PLC

    Ive only just realized Im missing a lot of options for varients of PLC's, i need to be able to access the CJ series, is there some setting i need to change somewhere? im on cx programmer version 9.5, i cant find anything about this thanks  
  5. Hello there, I am new to OMRON so need some help to communicate two PLC over FINS.   Here are the description of the system... (IO Table image is attached)   PLC1-  CJ2M-CPU33 IP- 10.113.218.34 SUBNET-255.254.0.0 UNIT NO - 00 (set the dial available on the CPU in HEX) NODE - 22 (set the 2 dials available on the CPU in HEX) PLC2-  CJ2M-CPU33 IP- 10.113.218.35 SUBNET-255.254.0.0 UNIT NO - 01 (set the dial available on the CPU in HEX) NODE - 23 (set the 2 dials available on the CPU in HEX)     Now, what i have to do is to transfer the D100 to D110 from PLC1 to PLC2's D200 to D210 and Transfer the D100 to D110 from PLC2 to PLC1's D200 to 210.   I have tried RECV and ECHRD blocks but didn't succeed yet.   Two CPU are connected over ethernet via a industrial switch.   Can you help me to achieve data transmission please...
  6. floating point shift register

    hi all, i'm currently trying to shift register some data in the floating point (double word) format, just for an example i,m using a 0-20mA 0-40 bar pressure sensor to gather information from a can filler and want to log the data for lets say the previous 20 cans. i understand how the shift register works and can get it to work with single word just fine, im using floating point to make my life a bit easier by using sleepy wombat's scaling function block, i need decimal points as i will be expecting reading around 4.5 or so bar and expected to be within .2 tolerence this will then have to displayed on a HMI, which i assume will be easy enough
  7. ad041 analog expansion resolution

    hi everyone, ive recently started working at a company who uses omron PLC's im a bit more familiar with siemens i used in university.   one of my first tasks at work was to go through the current plc programs we have installed, ive noticed going through them that the previous engineer doesnt use the whole resolution of the analog input, i was wandering if this was some sort of practice im not familiar with or if they just have done it their own way. for example the ad041 expansion unit has a resolution of 1/6000, which would be  scale of 0-1770 in hex, however in the programs im looking through this top end hex value is always listed as 1700.   im assuming there some safety precaution or something that i don't know about, thanks for any answers in advance * the image is of the data points being put into the SCL function  
  8. Hello there, Today i have commissioned my first project with OMRON make PLC. Model: CP1L-EM40DT1D. (CX-Programmer) I have 2 built in 0-10V Analog Inputs on the plc. for analog input no-1 i get the digital value of 0-1000 in specific plc register address corresponding the 0-10V. (Factory setup) But today on site, i have noticed that some miner value of 0 to 50 is always coming and fluctuating very fast in that register, however the transmitter are genetaring 0.0V only (I have checked using digital multimeter with high precision) PLC and Transmitter are already grounded and all the cable connections are tight as well. so how to overcome this high fluctuating value ? is there any setting to filter the input ?
  9. Analog Input Addressing

  10. Hello. I am trying to make a serial RS 232C connection between Schneider Magelis HMIGXU3512 and Omron PLC CP1E. However, there seems to be a communication problems between both of the equipment. I am using cable XBT Z9740 for the serial communication cable. The format used is 8.2.N for both equipment. The baud rate is 115200. No Flow Rate is choose. Anyone can help with this kind of problems?
  11. 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.
  12. Trying to connect our old Sysmac C200HE PLC to the CX-Programmer software however, failed connection appears. We are using a USB-Serial connection and have set up the comms on the device manager. To try and connect to the PLC we are using the Auto connect function, selecting the usb-serial connection and selecting the comms the same as the host network. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  13. Genst,   Could You please advise how can I connect to CJ1M CPU12 - shown in attached picture. DB9 port is used for communication with remote input/outpus rack. There is this small portabove DB9, but first I don't know what cable should I use and seconde I don't know if it is possible to usi this port when PLC talks on DB9 with remote input/output rack. I want to connect to CX-programmer to be able to online troubleshoot PLc program.   thanks in advance. tomasz  
  14. stepper motor position control

    Hello, I need to have a cx-programmer code which I can control my linear actuator position by setting 3 positions with timer, I am using a CP1L pro'skit
  15. Hi, I can’t find an answer to the following and I was advised to ask it here.I’m programming an Omron CJ2M with an MD212 high speed I/O card. I usually do all my programming in Structured text, simply because I like it a lot over ladder or sft.Now, if I want to read the hight speed counter (incremental encoder), I have to make a ladder section and use the PRV instruction to store the present value in a chosen location.The manual says the current PV is stored in A271, but I can’t get a readout there. Apparently the only way to read it is through this instruction.Does anyone know if there is an equivalent to the PRV instruction for Structured text? or another way perhaps? Again, when I check the actual memory adress, there’s no value there withouth the use of the PRV instr.

  17. Ethernet/IP bandwidth

    Hello, A while ago I modernised a magazine gathering / filmwrapping machine. This was a fairly big project for which I used an Omron CJ2M as the main PLC, 10 Wago Ethernet/IP fieldbus couplers, a Keyence CV-X420 vision camera and an Omron NS12 HMI.  All of these components run on the same network which contains an unmanaged switch where the HMI, PLC and the first Wago are connected. The Wago’s act as a two port switch since they are all daisy chained. At the end of the Wago chain there is also the vision cam which is connected at the last Wago coupler. At the time I was advised against using Broadcasting instead of Multicasting with a managed switch, but I tried anyway since my networking knowlege is lacking. Also, the only ‘bandwidth demanding data’ comes from the vision system. The Wago couplers contain only digital I/O and high speed encoder inputs run directly to the CJ2M. I haven’t run into any trouble so far and the machine is already producing for over a year. Now , a new project is on the way and it will need even more Ethernet couplers, 15 to be precise.  This brings me to my question; is there a limit to the number of nodes in an Ethernet/IP network and will I possibly run in to bandwidth problems by adding more remote I/O and not using a mannaged switch? Also, I would like to get high speed input out of one of the Wago couplers. Thanks in advance for any feedback! Greetings from Holland Andy 
  18. Cannot get Online - CPM2C

    Hello Ladies and Gents, Im quite new to working with Omron. I am struggling very much to get online with an Omron CPM2C-S110C. It has a CIF01 card also. I hear this PLC is quite an old one. I have referenced the manual on 'connecting a computer running support software' and double checked I have the correct cables. The ones I am using and the way I am connecting is:-   PLC Peripheral slot >> CS1W-CN118 >> XW2Z-200S-CV >> serial to USB >> Laptop Checking on Device Manager, I have all the drivers installed, the comms ports are correctly numbered yet I still cannot connect. There are 4 dip switches on the top right hand side of the CPU and all are swiched off. I have called Omron Tech Support and they said to ignore them in this instance. The RS232C port on the CIF01 is used by a barcode scanner so there is no means to connect through that (I have been told) I feel that I have been through setting and checked in CX-Programmer and nothing looks obscure. Please offer me any ideas you may have. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
  19. Hello,   Was extracting PLC program from a Chinese machine and the comments was shown incorrectly as symbols instead of Chinese characters. The Laptop used does support Chinese Language so why does the PLC program pulled from the machine does not show the comments correctly?
  20. Combination Input

    Hi.. I'm new into PLC programming so I dont really know much how to program.. So hopefully there is someone out there that can help me with this or give me some ideas.. Here is the problem; I got 2 inputs signal, A & B.. from this 2 input signal, there will be variable combination of 4 inputs and it will produce different output let say in condition; 1. AAAB - Output 1 2. AABA - Output 2 3. AABB - Output 3 4. ABAA - Output 4 . . . n. BBBB - Output n   I'm open to any suggestion and ideas for this.. Btw I'm using OMRON CP1H for this one..  Thank you
  21. Hello,      I make a project where I should control temperature for thermoplastic extruder. I read for this type of process a two position controller is enough but I want to use a PID controller. I have values for P,I,D,Tf and I applied Z-transform and I have a numeric controller which is implemented through structured list.  I want to control heating element with this PID but my problem is I don't have an analogue output module just a digital output module(OD 212) and now my question is : How I can( if it is possible) to control duty of PWM with output from pid?  (I have a CJ2M processor)
  22. Hello      I have a cj2m processor and md211 module and I want to read position from rotary encoders who are put on the stepper motors. I use high speed counters to count the number of(I made settings like in documentation) but every time I read velocity.   In first two picture I have 3 blocks for PRV function , I set port specifier [#0, #1 and #3] because on this ports I command 3 axis. Please help me!              
  23. High speed counter

    Hello!       I wrote a ladder program where I use PRV function for reading current position from rotary encoder. My issue is I received data on PRV only when Oringin_Search is on, I want to read value without Origin_Search active. I tried with High speed counter but  I don't receive  values. I used port's 0,1, 3 because I have three servomotors with encoders. I have CJ2M CPU and MD211 Module.
  24. Hello,      I want to make an application to control a heater element . I have a thermocouple(k) , I read value from it with ad04u module and with od212 module I want to control the heater element with PWM. Now that's my problem , I don't know how to configure in cx-programmer to put on output from od212 pwm signal. I read in documentation about Pwm but is a poor explication about this problem. (I use CJ2M processor). What else conditions must to check for I can work with pwm signal?
