  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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  
  4. 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
  5. 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.

  7. 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 
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. 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
  11. 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)
  12. 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!              
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
  15. Hello people, I hope someone can help me with this. The system is connected with 8 PLC's. I want to transfer the data memory of a PLC to another like this: D850 from PLC2 to D900 PLC1 D850 from PLC3 to D901 PLC1 D850 from PLC4 to D902 PLC1 D850 from PLC5 to D903 PLC1 D850 from PLC6 to D904 PLC1 D850 from PLC7 to D905 PLC1 D850 from PLC8 to D906 PLC1 The data memory is an integer.
  16. Salutations! So recently I'm very confused with my CX-Programmer. Everytime I tried to run the Simulator from CX-Programmer, I always got a notice that a certain program called KickEngine.exe is about to Run. I look up for this program and found it inside CX-Simulator folder, so I decide to run it anyway. The problem is the simulator always return the error : "The selected port does not exist". In other words I cannot run the simulation. I understand that the simulator uses ControllerLink comm. between CX-Programmer and CX-Simulator, so I tried to run those two separately and build the connection, but also to no avail. Even so, since CX-Programmer 9.0, I believe there is no need to run the programs separately. Before I had a similar problem where the simulator cannot be run, and the error code is "Failed to Start Ladder Engine". This was solved by removing whole Omron software using CX-Remover, then reinstalling again. However, it doesn't solve the current problem. If possible I don't want to resort to reinstalling the whole OS... T_T Anyone has suggestions or ideas? I had lookup on an older thread and tested the measure taken there, and didn't solve this. Thanks!  
  17. 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?
  18. Lets say I worked in a factory that made multiple models of parts. I need to run data tracing on the off shift due to certain models only running on 2nd and 3rd shift. I want one data trace to capture one group of bits at Model 1, Then reset the Data Points and run again for Model 2, Model 3 and so on. So the Bits that I am mapping with the trace need to change.  I can change the trigger easy enough with my program. I see in the manual the CPU has a "separate memory area" for trace settings. Can this area be accessed from the Program so I can set my bit addresses to monitor to a word or E_?   See attached pic for clarification of what I aim to change through the program.

  22. I can't simulate the cx-programmer application, before it could work. My CX-ONE has been licensed.   What Should I Do?
  23. Hi, is it possible to communicate between the Sysmac studio simulator and the CX-Programmer simulator? I want to test the exchange of data between a NX1P2 and a CJ2H, but I don't have the controllers with me. Thanks and have a great day!
  24. Hi, I have some trouble with a CJ2M-CPU33. My client did a backup to memory card earlier today, and after this we did some changes through remote link. Now the client wanted to restore the previous backup to the PLC and has done so, but the system would not function correctly. After going online on the PLC it seems like the PLC is stuck in "Stop/Programming Mode". When trying to change to "Monitor" or "Run" mode a dialog comes up containing the following message: "Failed to change the operating mode. The operating mode may be still changing in the PLC."  - All the dip switches are set to off after restoring backup - The PLC has been rebooted  - I have downloaded the application again through CX-programmer  - Verified that the PLC is set to start up in "Monitor mode" But nothing helps. The same message comes up when trying to change the operating mode.  Hoping anyone can help to resolve this issue as it is very critical for us and the client. In advance, thanks for any tips or help received. Best regards Stian
