  1. Modbus Addressing in Weintek HMI

    Modbus addressing in Weintek HMI to poll data from Temperature sensor through RS485. In my system i have connected Temperature sensor to I/O Scanner has output in terms of RS-485 which directly connected to COM3 Port pin. No. 6 (as Negative) & 9 (as Positive) of HMI (Model No: MT8071iE) and HMI connected to PC via ETHERNET. I want to read temp on HMI screen via MODBUS protocol. So, can you please provide me instruction about addressing of MODBUS register in Easy-Builder Software so can read data of corresponding register. Because when i do compile i got an error like " Device no Response". I hope i will get reply from your side as Fast as possible to overcome this problem. Thank you.

  3. Compare data RS232

    Halo, my name is Riandanu, I connect PLC Omron CP1E to weighing scale, and its done. i think i dont have problem between PLC and weighing scale. And i want to ask about, how to compare value from weighing scale ?  example : from the picture you can see value of weighing scale is " ST,+00160.66  g", and i want to compare it with 180 or 150 to give output on to lamp. Thankyou Riandanu       PLC to ek-i.cxp

    Hello all ... i am a new plc user.. i am using D500 for taking value as it is a latched register.  i am taking value for a flow meter. i have two questions. 1. how totalizer is calculated from flow rate as my flow rate is in m3/h. 2. the value of register is gone upto 32000 approximately... i want that this value to go on.. i mean how 32 bit register is declared in plc .. a
  5. Retain Memory CJ2m-CPU31

    Hi All, Just to verify if the "memory card" , in attached document Page 4 highlighted area ,  provides Omron CJ2M CPU21 to retain memory when powered off? If yes, for how long can the memory lasts without being charged? Isit capacitor or battery? Thanks in advance. Regards, Summer cj2m-cpu31.pdf
  6. Please assist me with the following; regarding the ME96SSHA-MB Power meter data transition with Melsec-Q series PLC; We acquire to read various values on dedicated Modbus storage address registers at the simultaneous into a Melsec-Q series PLC via Modbus (TCP or RTU)  for calculation purposes. Naturally, since the reading of these variables are to provide accurate instantaneous results, it is a requirement that these values are to be read at one scan.   However, as can be seen below, there is a gap in address register range – of which, if all of these are scanned simultaneously, yields an exception error when read. This error is only avoided by scanning these data sets separately – which is not ideal for our application – since accuracy in calculations is imperative.

  8. We have Q06UDEHCPU PLC.   We require to attain 1k of file registers in standard Ram. Please find our settings attached - PLC Parameter.png; When we try to down the register file – we attain the following error; “Failed to access standard Ram” error message (attached - Downloading Error.png); The program is very small – and thus we have plenty of space as well.
  9. Mitsubishi GX Works Bugs??

    Hello I have been using GX Works 3 for a while now and I have discovered a couple of things, maybe bugs. I have not had any training for the software or hardware so maybe I did something wrong. 1 Labels. If you sort a global label table into any order other than the unsorted order that appears by default you are unable to create, delete or edit any labels. Our Mitsubishi representative discovered that if you click on the column header between 'Data Type' and 'Class' the order does not change but now editing is available. This, it turns out is a really bad idea. It seems the position the label was in when it was created is preserved, I think this is the unsorted order you get by default. If you sort the list and then delete a label it is possible that the label that should be in that position is also deleted. I have attached a small project to demonstrate this. Open the Global Labels notice the order they were created. Now change the sort order, click on the column header I described earlier to make them editable and then delete the label in position 1. For a while I thought this was the only problem but recently there has been a number of instances where I have created a label, given it a carefully selected address only to discover that it is being overwritten by another variable. I have not been able to work out exactly what is going on but I believe it is connected to the sort order of the labels. Also if you sort the order and change an address, have you changed the address of another label? The only solution I have found is to keep label tables very short so they are managable without having to sort the order, that is probably good practice anyway 1 Axis software limits. I have been using a number of axes in pairs, in incremental mode as caterpillar feeders, using FX5U-40SSC simple motion modules. I had a problem that the axis synchronised to follow would suddenly stop moving, the customer was having to power down the machine and start again. This problem persisted for months with Mitsubishi scratching their heads unable to fathom it out and ultimately stating that the problem must be in my code somewhere. It was suggested by the customer that it may be getting to a software limit, I showed the customer that the software limit was disabled in the setup and it was confirmed by Mitsubishi that it was not the problem. guess what, it is a problem. Once the actual position reached the limit of the double word memory it would stop moving. The solution is the take the servos out of synchronisation in order to set the position (datum) to zero every cycle. Unfortunately the drives do not always re-synch on the first attempt so you have to keep trying till it does, this now causes slight variations in cycle times but it works. Andy     Label Test.gx3
  10. There have been many good discussions on the applicability of cloud-based solutions for manufacturing and process control systems. On one side, some people have concerns regarding security and control of the information, on the other side, there are identified benefits enabled by cloud systems. From VMS minicomputers to DOS and Windows, from ArcNet to Ethernet, it is inevitable the industrial automation systems shall adopt the technologies that are getting predominant in IT general use; the current environment that I am calling the “Cloud-iPad era” is no different; therefore the practical discussion is not if those new technologies will be applied in the industrial environment, but how. This paper is not intended to join the conceptual discussion about the cloud, but just to present a few simple practical examples, where cloud technologies are already enhancing industrial automation solutions and enabling new business opportunities.

  11. I want some recommendations for a PLC that can hold its memory for long periods of time with no power. I have a customer that has the molds that only get used a couple of times a year and when they are not being used they sit in storage until they need them again. Currently they have a DirectLogic05 controller and what they have noticed is that when they pull these molds out of storage to use them, the program is lost and they got to download it again. They want to make it to were all they gotta do is plug and play basically for this machine. Is there a special module or a processor that can hold its program for long periods of time while it has no power on it? 
  12. CP1L connected with scanner symbol DS-4308 reading 2D data matrix,  with RS-232 on board CP1W-CIF01 Hi all, need some help because I can't read the information. Let me explain, I have a PLC, " CP1L-L14DR-D " with a RS-232 option borad " CP1W-CIF01 " , a scanner Symbol DS-4308, and I'm trying to read a data matrix 2d barcode (I don't know if that matters). so I build a cable with the next configuration, (one side male and the other female) PORT CONFIG PIN OUT SCANNER CABLE RJ-50 TO RS-232 PINOUT Maybe I'm missing a connection? a bridge? power supply ? ground?   in the program, I only have this to check the communication,       When my reception flag complete (A392.06), my instruction RXD is going to execcute, reading in D1500 the data. if is any error in communication (A392.04) or overflow (A392.07), my port is going to restart (A526.00) (ignore w0.03) with the followign config: (9600, 7,2,E, RS-232C, End code: Received Bytes 3       and I'm reading only, data on D1500 and D1501, and the data makes no sense.   with the configuration of End Code: CR, LF,          can't make it work, I read nothing. and if I change the END CODE: Received bytes to 4,      don't work. and my flag A392.04 go to ON.   PLC HAS 4 PIN SWITCH, ALL ARE OFF The configuration on the scanner is setting to default and then config to RS-232 Standard.   So, what I'm missing?  bad connections? plc don't support? scanner config? program?      
  13. Can't modify memory

    Hello, I don't have much experience with OMRON PLCs, but here we go. I am using CX-Programmer version 9.1 There is machine in my factory which is running on Omron PLC and HMI. Operator has an option on the HMI to save and load programs. Basically there are 150 lines in memory for each program (example D10000 - D10150), there are 16 different programs. Problem is that operator is saying that some of those programs are corrupted and she can't save new programs there correctly. So I thought I would try to delete some of the lines from the memory to see if that could fix the problem, but I do not know how to do it. When I open memory area in PLC and go to monitor mode and get the data for ex. D10000 - D10150 and I write 0 into every box and then try to upload it to PLC but I can't. I don't understand why is the "Transfer to PLC" button grey. What are the requirements for the button to go active? Or what would be the right action here if I want to clear the specific area in the memory? Any assistance regarding this problem will be much appreciated.
  14. Hello All, What are the methods to get the monitoring data from A series PLC? I know its not supported any more, interface modules are not available...,    So the basically,   If I want to write customer software (may be embedded) what is the protocol I need to follow? I am connected to CPU unit by the way, there is no other modules except few digital and analog interfaces on PLC. Thank you in advance for your direction, direction in any way would help!
  15. I currently have certain amount of Recipe data located in form of Excel file on to a PC with static IP address. Is there a way to get that data inside the Nj501 without using an SQL server as I currently have NJ501-1300 which doesn't support SQL. I am okay to send data to the SD card I currently have on NJ PLC as it is easy to get data from SD card to the NJ501.  If there is any example code or a link that helps me create i would be helpful. Thanks in advance. FYI: I am currently using NB10 HMI with NJ PLC.
  16. Hello everyone, I am working with a NB10W HMI connected to a PLC NJ by Ethernet protocol, I would like to know where to start regarding the sending of data from the PLC to the HMI. I have a 50x15 array and should show all those values in the HMI for read / write. How to proceed? I started working with PLC for a while. I'm using Sysmac Studio to programm the PLC and NB designer to the HMI.
  17. Hello everyone, I need the help to do setting of datalink between CJ2 and LOGIX-5324ER. The Allen bradley PLC was programmed by contractor and I have no software of it, so I am doing the network setting in CX-one network configurator. I tried to do the instruction in the Quick Start Guides on Downloads section here under Omron, but I couldn't find the option to register tags in network configurator. Is there anything wrong here? or is it possibly because of that they not support to do a datalink in these version of PLCs? They appeared like these in the pictures.
  18. FX3u4AD reload issue

    I have an FX3u16MR attached to two FX3u4AD units (right mounted).  I am running the first two channels of the eight in 12 bit mode, the next two channels in 16 bit mode, the next two channels in 12 bit mode again and the last two channels are idling.  All inputs are configured as 4-20mA.  Working with the first channel only for now, what I am finding is that I have to load the gains twice for them to take.  It points to a timing issue in the code that I am running in the plc.   It just seems to have started happening though.  Admittedly I am recoding so the ADC calibrates from a HMI rather than from a PC trigger which is what I had before.  But I have just paralleled up the M register that invokes it.  I am working through the code as I speak. If anyone has any idea's i would love to hear from you.  I know this bit of kit fairly well I am just missing something here and it is bugging me.  A problem shared and all that. Thanks in advance.  
  19. CAM Control Data

    Hi everyone, I'm trying to use the cam control data by using an MR-J4-A-RJ and MR Configurator 2. When I switch the input "CAMC" to ON, I see that the output "CAMS" is switched to ON which means that the cam mode is activated. When I switch CI0 to ON to choose the Cam Data No.1 and switch ST1 to ON...nothing is happening like if there is no Cam Data. Please, have you any issue or idea ?? Thank you in advance Omar
  20. Hi, I am working on a project in Digi Module ConnectME9210 and sending data to Allen Bradley PLC (CompactLogix 5370 family). I am not sure which endian I should use to send data. Does Allen Bradley receive Data in Big Endian or Little Endian? I have another question as well. Can I make an EDS file to tell the PLC to receive data in UINT16, not as a single byte? Muhammad Azeem
  21. Getting to memory.

    I know enough Ladder logic to get in trouble. Although, I do have a few PLCs controlling machines that I wired and programmed and they are running well (as long as I can remember what those buttons I added do.) I cannot figure out how to get memory into the PLC.  For example, I have a Counter where I have entered the following: CNT 0005 W1 ( I am driving it with a 1s clock and the reset is an external button.)) I then went to working memory and entered a number as position 1 (I entered 234) When I load the program and press the button to reset, CNT is starting at 0. When I move the W memory from PLC to PC there is 0 at that position. All of the boxes are checked when I compile/transfer. Is my CNT format correct? How does one get the memory to the PLC?    
  22. Hello all  i'm looking for some software to record a 100 plus channels maybe with an ascii string from a PLC? i want to be able to assign each channel with a unit and a range, flagging feature would be nice.  - selecting the channels i want to view  - auto start recording - save file and start new automatically  -view and create reports  preferably no additional hardware because of the amount of channels. this is to record an operators every move so in events of damage or plant failure we can quickly identify the problem (point the finger)  many thanks dan
  23. Hello all, i'm looking at installing a completely new network for our PLC system, using a ring topology. at the same time i would like to incorporate the IP cameras and VOIP into the same network.  each system is on a different sub net, PLC = x.x.1.x, Cameras= x.x.2.x, VOIP= x.x.3.x estimated camera traffic will be 25 Mbps, PLC 10 Mbps, VOIP no more than 1 Mbps  switches would be capable of 100 Mbps  question: managed or un-managed switches? if it is possible to use un-managed without affecting operations then this would be a massive cost saving    please only comment if you have practical experience implementing this  many thanks Dan  
  24. TIA Portal V13- Alarm for Bool Data type

    IN TIA Portal V13 HMI Alarm Setup, Discrete Alarm Not allowing Bool Tags in "Tag Trigger". Please help how to set Bool Alarms?
  25. I READ IN THE MANUAL FOR THE CJ2M-CPU34 THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO CHANGE THE IP ADDRESS BY WRITING TO D30098 AND D30099 (MY DEVICE IS UNIT 0).  I TRIED TO DO THIS ON A TEST PLC BUT AM NOT HAVING ANY LUCK... I WROTE MY IP ADDRESS #C0A8 TO D30098 AND #0E30 TO D30099 (IP ADDRESS 192.168.14.48) WITH THE CPU IN PROGRAM MODE, I SET THE RESET BIT (A501.00) TO TURN ON ON THE TRAILING EDGE OF THE FIRST SCAN BIT, I CAN TELL THE CARD RESETS BECAUSE I AM CONNECTED VIA ETHERNET AND I GET DISCONNECTED, BUT THE IP ADDRESS DOES NOT CHANGE.  IS THERE ANY WAY TO CHANGE THE IP ADDRESS WITHOUT CX-PROGRAMMER?  I NEED TO GET A SOLUTION TO MY CUSTOMER TONIGHT AND MY SUPERVISORS DO NOT WANT TO RELEASE OUR DEVELOPMENT CODE TO THE END USER.   THANK YOU!!!
