  1. Hello, I am hoping I can get some assistance configuring an Allen Bradley PanelView C600 (2711C-T6C). All a long I have been able to communicate with the HMI using Ethernet protocol, but after I switched communication settings to what my Professor recommended by using the Panelview software, the Ethernet connection seems to have stopped working. The HMI has now been reset to the factory settings (by pressing ctrl + shift during start up then selecting F1 when prompt appears asking if the user desires to return to factory condition of terminal). Once the terminal resets I am able to eventually get to the configuration screen. When in the communication settings Protocol says "*", Status says "Unavailable", I've changed the device name to "plc" and the Node Address says "0". When I click on the "Ethernet" option the IP mode says "DHCP" then the IP Address, Mask and Gateway all read "0.0.0.0". I get into CMD/DOS PROMPT on my laptop while the terminal is connected to my laptop via an Ethernet cable and type in "ipconfig" to see if my laptop is communicating with the terminal but it is not. The lights where the terminals are located are also not blinking. After plugging in several different Ethernet chords from the terminal to my laptop I am convinced the issue is not the cable. I've tried resetting the terminal several times as well and I'm having no luck. Can anyone assist me with regaining Ethernet communication with the terminal or some work-arounds? I see there is an option to use the USB but it looks like AB no longer provides the drivers on the website. If it helps, the manuals I am using are 2711C-UM001 and 2711C-QS001.
  2. I have the Ultra 5000 Intelligent Positioning Drive for lifting purpose. Now currently the only way i am able to go online with the drive is through the Serial Communication cable (db9) and till the time i am online with the drive the movement of the lifting operation has to be put on hold.  So is the anyway possible to go online with the ultra5000 drive on the wireless network?  need some suggestion on accessing the drive parameters over wireless network instead of conventional serial communication cable. Thanks
  3. Hello,  I am a newbie to the Omron world. We have a new machine come in made on Omron PLC, we are trying to get it connected to our OPC server so that the server can read and write tags via ther Ethernet/IP protocol. We have given out ethernet card 10.14.9.187 IP and the NJ501-1300 controller is on 192.168.250.1. But still our OPC server cannot see the tags/variables. I dunno if we have to add the ethernet communication card to the network configurator and add the tag sets ?  We are also getting a tag resolution error on sysmac studio while being online.    Thanks Pratik 
  4. HI  , I would like to ask you for your opinion    THIS IS MY PROBLEM WITH THE kinetix 6500  The equipment was working fine , but now i cant make to servo move with the program, cant run the test or autotuning    Status in front of servo drives say running. Everything is green, no errors,     when I activate the MSO  I can hear a click  at servodrive, but the servo is not energized, because i dont hear the usual noise when the servo is energized, I have check the cables and conectors, everythig is fines, I check the servo resistence , no shortcuts or open lines, The wierd part is when the servos are in the running state i can move by hand, they are supossed to be locked.     after that I activate the home MAH, or test or autotuning , or a direct command ,and then it  fails  When i try to jog . move, test or  autotuning  the servo it says s55 velocity error or excess positon error, i can not get servo to move at all I can see the position from the encoder back to the plc. I have turned the servo and i see the position at actualposition     Before the equipment was working , moving , I just swith it off one day, and the next day I couldnt make it move   Best regards    I have added the programm as an attachment k6500.ACD

  6. Gentlemen, I am beginner in field of PLCs and I need some help to create backup of project / program running on PLCs installed at our project. We have a  Quantum Hot Standby PLCs ( 140 CPU 67160) installed at our water treatment plant; we connect to PLC via ethernet (TCP/IP) and I am preparing backup of these installed PLCs as vendor did not give us backup project files and provided little useful documentation.  The problem is that, I have transferred the project from all of the PLCs using UnityPro XL, but for one PLC, when I connect to it the "transfer from PLC" option is not available. I am hoping if someone could help me with that.

  10. Hi again I browse through half a dozen mitsubishi manuals but turn up nothing for mitsubishi plc cross-communication. In this project there are about six L-06 plc:s. All are on the same ethernet network already, communicating nicely with the SCADA system. Per today information is (temporarily) exchanged via the SCADA system. Here is another hole in my knowledge. Namely how to correctly setup communication between these plc:s. I plan to continuosly exchange some 50 bytes of information. I would be grateful for some pointers and/or perhaps a reference to a manual. Cheers to all of you //

  13. Videojet 1620

    Hi guys, currently working on the communication with videojet 1620 printer (Continuous Inkjet Marking), in there operators manual (http://www.videojet.com/content/dam/Countries/North%20America/Operator-Manuals/CIJ/1620-Operator-Manual.pdf)  the say : - How to Configure Ethernet Port Refer to WSI/ESI Communications Protocol addendum for more information. But cant find this addendum anywhere in the web, all i did found is this pdf attached "Videojet 1510 and 1210 Simple Communications Protocol". I'have try it with th eprinter using the Ethernet port and all i can find open is the FTP(21), 3000, 3001 and VNC(5900). An d i have send same packets from the WSI/ESI to the print via 3000 and 3001 with Packet Sender but the response was empty!! is there any one that know this protocol ESI/WSI or did work with this printer or simillar ?   i found this info in the FTP folder : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <CONTROLLER_INFORMATION>     <START_DATE date="07/09/2016"/>     <HARDWARE BoardType="CSB4"/>     <VERSIONS>         <WINDOWS_CE Eboot="4.0.3" CE_Image="2.0.9"/>         <SOFTWARE Type="Excel" Version="1.0.423.0" SVN_Build="28116M"/>     </VERSIONS> </CONTROLLER_INFORMATION> 180020947-Videojet-WSI-Protocol.pdf
  14. I have a compactLogix L24.  It is connected to a network switch.  I also have an ethernet servo driver (KM AKD) attached to the same switch. The CL L24 IP address is 192.168.150.1 The Servo Driver is 192.168.150.3 In RSLogix 5000, I added an ethernet module.  I put in the IP address for the servo driver.  When I go online, I just get a connection error (Code16#0204).   I can talk to the servo driver using my PC on the same network (192.168.150.13), but the CompactLogix won't talk to it.  Do I need to install an external ethernet module to make this work, or can I use the existing ethernet ports on the L24? I'm stumped.
  15. CJ1M CPU11 how to set IP adress?

    Hello, I have to work now with a cj1m cpu11. I would like to connect it to a ns10 display. My first obvious problem is when i made the project in cx programmer, that unlike in cj2m i wasnt able to select the cpu unit in the IO table and set the ip adress. How do i need to set the ip address? im reading an omron guide, but it is confusing, and so long, i only want to set the ip address :/. Also how can i set the fins network to 2? On the cx-designer i set the network address:2 and the node adress:40. I know that the 40 means the end of ip address. Thats why i want to set the plc. How about the network address 2?  Help is much appreciated. Thanks!

  21. CJ2M CPU - Omron FINS Vs Omron EIP

    I want to implement Omron CIP, which communicates with CJ2M CPU35 Controllers across an Ethernet/IP network using the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP). Which commands they will use? FINS? or some other commands? Can someone help me to understand the protocol or command structure which can be used to implement Omron CIP (Ethernet/IP)?
  22. Hi, I am working on a project that requires connecting an EtherCAT network and an Ethernet/IP network to the built in ports of the NJ controller. I have been able to setup the EtherCAT network in Sysmac Studio, but I am struggling with the Ethernet /IP setup in Sysmac Studio. For the Ethernet network I have to setup the Motoman DX200 and a Cognex In-Sight 7000, as well a NA HMI which I was able to figure out and have it setup in Sysmac Studio. I have the EDS files for both Motoman and Cognex and the are installed in Sysmac Studio. I am a confused about what to put in the target variable and the originator variable, as well how can I connect these to my Global variables?
  23. I an seeking guidance on how to link two mitsubishi PLC over Ethernet and have them pass bits/words between them.  PLC 1, Q03UDV built in port  ---- GXWorks 2 v1.54N   192.168.1.39  (QJ71 in slot 1 is also available if req'd) PLC2, Q02H with a QJ71 Ethernet card in slot 2.  Same GXworks2   192.168.1.35   I know with a modbus or CCLink setup, there is a place to declare the buffer > X/Y parameters, but i have found no such parameters for the ethernet connections. I found 1 document describing the JP.Send instructions but I have not been able to get that to work from the example.    any help would be greatly appreciated.     
  24. communication with PC

    I have a project where I have to read I/O, and potentially initiate programs on the Mitsubishi PLC. Seems I can use the Melsec Protocol but I have some difficulty getting started. I can communicate via Ethernet using GXWorks 2 so hardware-wise there shouldn't be anything wrong. I'm using QJ71E71, Q06HCPU, QX42, etc. Initially I open a UDP socket to the correct IP address and port (copy the port from GXWorks) and attempt to issue a request 3E/Binary, specifying the network, PC, Module IO, and station and it always times out. Is there any source code that just does a basic read of a memory location? I'm using C++ but I should be able to understand any code sample in VB, C, C#, or others. Also, is there any issue with multiple connections to the PLCs. Right now I quit GXWorks before I test but is this necessary. Thanks, Jeff
  25. It's another BOOTP post! I know you're all as excited as I am, so lets get started. But seriously, I'm trying to disable BOOTP on the built in Ethernet ports, not on an Ethernet module. I specifically say disable because BOOTP successfully assigns the IP address to my Compact Logix, however I still need to disable BOOTP to make it a static IP address rather than a dynamic IP address. I'm going to list everything that I have tried, so that anyone with the same issue can have an all-in-one-place reference. (Because there's a number of forum posts and other information for this topic on the internet, with many different suggestions) If I see different ideas/suggestions in other places, I can edit them into this post. Things I have tried: (and you should try if you have this issue) Disabling all firewalls, (For me: Windows/Avast) Disabling all other network adaptors. (Wifi especially, but any and all adaptors you are not using for the setup) Using a different laptop/operating system: (My current laptop runs windows 8.1 and uses a Linksys usb to Ethernet device to talk to the PLC, I tried a laptop running windows 7 which communicated using a built in Ethernet port) Lastly: Try to use all available methods to disable it. For me, that would be: BOOTP standalone server, RSLinx, (Trying to use both USB and Ethernet connections) and finally RSLogix. (Actually, only Ethernet modules have a "disable BOOTP" checkbox built into RSLogix, so that is not an option for me.) [If you have an Ethernet module, go to port configuration in RSLogix and uncheck the "enable BOOTP" checkbox] Anyway, RSLinx Classic (version 3.71) and BOOTP Standalone server (version 2.32) are each coming back with an error when I try to disable BOOTP. I'll attach a .jpg of some screenshots, and some Wireshark save files to show what I mean. In the RSLinx Wireshark file, it shows a "privilege violation" packet being sent from the PLC to the laptop towards the end of the exchange, but I'm not sure what privileges the laptop needs/doesn't have. For the wireshark files: I cleared everything happening before I try to send the command, so that there isn't a ton to search through. As far as timing of the wireshark files go: I start recording traffic, send the disable command (by clicking the disable BOOTP/DHCP button on BOOTP server or "apply" on RSLinx) then I stop recording traffic once I get the error message. So, the captured packets should be just the attempt to disable BOOTP and that's about it. I am sorry that I the pictures are strung together using paint, but I don't have photoshop on my work computer so it's the best I have. Any suggestions/help would be appreciated! (Regardless of whether they are suggestions for me, or suggestions that I may have missed intended for anyone with this problem.) Thank you for your time. Edit: I had the attached pictures open in paint/photo viewer, sorry that they look bad in the forum picture viewer. BOOTP_wireshark.pcapng rs_linx_USB_wireshark.pcapng rs_linx_wireshark.pcapng
