  1. Is there any instruction in Sysmac Studio Structure text to detect rising Edge (DIFU/DIFD) ?
  2. Task Priority 16

    I have made a fat bloated program that runs too slow. I tried working under the philosophy that "Premature Optimization" is the biggest time waste in developing programs. Now my program takes to long to run and throws a task error. I am attempt to cut the primary task's cycle time down I tried to move programs that use IO to other tasks. Task 16 is supposed to be able  to handle IO but it doesn't come up as a selection choice of priorities for me. I can do 17 but I get errors trying to use IO variables at that priority level. NX102-1200 controller, Sysmac Studio 1.30.1. Should I be able make a task at priority 16? I have some analog IO that I don't need to update every millisecond and I have some data and loop intensive FB's that only need to run once hour and I'd like to get them off my primary task's to-do list. I'll be busy re-writing my program FB's to accept specific variables instead of bloated structured variables and converting and changing Lreal's to real's and some other Premature Optimization tasks so I can run the sucker. 
  3. I am using Studio 5000 View Designer v4.3 to create an HMI on Panel View.  I'm having a weird issue where every time I open up my project, the windows are displaying only in the lower right hand corner.  This wasn't happening earlier.  Undocking the window, expanding the window, uninstalling and re-installing View Designer have not helped.  Trying to open View Designer as an administrator has not helped either.  I know there are better HMI platforms, but I am basically complete with the construction of this HMI using Studio 5000 View Designer and now it is too late.  I just want to add a few more buttons and I can't do it because I can't see the bottom of any of my windows.  Since Studio 5000 View Designer is based in Visual Studio, maybe someone would know how I can fix this via Windows registry files?

  5. Axis Attribute Error

    Hello All, First time working with PLC. Get the hang of it from stuff I researched. Having an issue with an axis setup for a servo motor.  When I try to do an auto tune it gives me an error that axis is not configured.  Source: Config Fault    Condition: MotorDeviceCode- INvalid attribute      ACtion: Immediate Stop Fault Entry: Type 8, code 9 subcode: 1314 stopaction: 4 Statechange: 3   I was wondering what am I doing wrong? Any leads or source information I can use to solve this. 
  6. Can anyone help me with the issue in the picture? We have the correct version in place yet it gives me a version error stating it needs the version that is installed. Doc1.docx
  7. Ok so I recently got the Factory i/o software to practice plc programming more in depth.  I got it working easily enough with the siemens TIA software and I am now trying to get it to work with the Omron Sysmac Studio software.  I am not sure if it is possible or not.  I have access to the hardware but I was really hoping to use the simulation like I can in TIA.  Any insight would be appreciated on the subject.
  8. hi dears, I have one CS1D omron Redundant controller ( CP65H) that must be connected to NS15 Touch panel. I want to use Ethernet for connecting HMI and CPUs (CS1D-ETN21D). I have one question. for NS15 we can use CX designer and sysmac studio? is it true? which one is better? what is your recommendation for HMI software? Thanks.
  9. How do I edit an array size ARRAY[0..13] OF REAL to ARRAY[0..15] OF REAL? Sysmac Studio doesn't allow it to be done online, as far as I can see. If I do it offline and then go online and Synchronise, Transfer to Controller I receive error Any ideas?

  11. FactoryTalk Alarm Messages

    Hello Everyone, I have the .mer files for an HMI application that was developed in FactoryTalk V8.0. I have V10.0 installed, I restored the .mer file and did some development ( added screens , objects and alarm messages). Then I created a V8.0 application file. Everything is ok except for the Alarm Messages. I changed an existing message but when i trigger that alarm I get the old one ( the message before I modified it)  Any ideas??  Like always, thank you 
  12. Hello everyone, I have a problem with packing machine. There are some issues with one of the axis, when axis actual position is near to 1800000 some error appear and operator has to turn off machine on main contactor. This axis is working in Linear mode. I think that rotary mode would be better for this axis. And here is my question. Which instructions, and what options i should change/check when i change count mode in axis's options. Can any1 point me some manuals to read or give me some advice ? Thank you in advance.  
  13. OMRON VS FACTORYTALK

    Hello !!! I am trying to establish a communication between a CJ1M (Omron) CPU with a PanelView Plus 7 (Rockwell). In the simulation (runtime) the communication is established, and the buttons send and receive the information. When I download to the HMI, the "SHORTCUTS NOT DETECTED" alarm appears. Someone to help me?
  14. Hello, I have a .PBW file in an obsolete PanelView that I need to troubleshoot, but I can't open it.  Called AB TechConnect for support, but tech said it was too archaic and he, essentially, needed to start with a Windows98 machine and PanelBuilder 32 to even begin.  FactoryTalk doesn't know what to do with it.  File is attached.  Any suggestions/assistance is much appreciated ABWWTP.PBW
  15.

  16. How do I communicate between an Omron NX1P2 Automation Controller and Indusoft Web Studio. This is the first time using an Automation Controller. I am familiar with communicating between Omron PLC's and Indusoft using OMETH drivers. What driver should I use?
  17. Hello All I am new to sysmac studio, i am using a NJ301-1200  and R88M-KN10H servo drive , i connected the servo to the NJ using ethercat. I was able to write a program where i was able to activate the servo from the NJ using the mc_Power instruction . My question is , i am not able to run the servo using the mc_movevelocity and mc_moverelative . Do any one have any suggestion to how to go from here ..  
  18. I use Netgear routers with multi-NAT capability to attach machines to the company LAN. One of the advantages is that similar machines can have identical network addressing schemes while a multi-NAT router on each machine can be used to assign unique external addresses. The usual error on these setups is to forget to assign a gateway IP address and so the PLC can't respond to requests from outside its subnet. I have the router set up as normal (as I have done a hundred times before on other machines). PLC has correct IP address, subnet and gateway (that of the router LAN address). Router has NAT rule configured, correct LAN subnet, etc. I can PING the PLC from the company network. This implies that the router, wiring, etc., are all OK. If I disconnect the PLC ethernet cable during a PING I get errors. This implies that the address is unique, etc. Controller --> Communication Setup --> Ethernet connection via hub --> Ethernet communication test --> "A communication error has occurred." Has anyone seen this? Any reason why it shouldn't work as I expect? Many thanks.  
  19. Hello, I am looking for a way to programatically select a recipe. Any time that a recipe is change or saved, the recipe viewer object always resets its view and selects the first recipe. This will lead to possibly writing the wrong recipe to the controller, as well as frustrate the user if they have to scroll through a hundred items to find the recipe again. I looked at the VB functions, but the only one I could find that was close was the .SelectedRecipe, which is a read only. I am using Sysmac Studio v1.1.7, and an NA5 HMI. Any help would be appreciated.
  20. FactoryTalk ME Parameter File

    I have several parameter files that I need to create. I did them all in excel, renamed the files with .Par extension. The files open up in notepad and I can see the parameters that I created. When I open them up in Studio they all look like the following. The *.par will open fine in notpad just not in studio. Thoughts???   Studio 湕瑩ല⌊㴱笠㨺䑛䵗䱐嵃牐杯慲㩭慍湩牐 Notepad #1= {::[DWMPLC]Program:MainProgram.Unit[2].HMI_Auto} #2={::[DWMPLC]Program:MainProgram.Unit[2].HMI_Man_FWD} #3={::[DWMPLC]Program:MainProgram.Unit[2].HMI_Man_Rev}

  22. Hello everyone, Working in Automation for the first time as a Co-op student so i'm fairly new to PLC's and the Automation field in general. I've recently been tasked with converting a RSlogix 5 program from an old PLC 5 project into a Studio5000 project. I referenced the manual (I'll attach link below), and had no issues using the RSlogix Project Migrator tool that I downloaded off the Rockwell website. My problem is that once I convert the program, my I/O tags that were originally sequenced in octets(0-7, 10-17, 20-27, ...) from the RSlogix 5 program, are switched into a sequential scheme in Studio5000 that just increments them in order (1, 2, 3, 4, ...). I hope this make sense, but basically the first seven tags match between the projects, but then I:010 in rslogix 5 is equivalent to I[8] in 5000, I:011 is I[9], and so on and so forth. Has anyone had this issue before and found a way to have Studio5000 keep the original octet scheme? I don't see this normally being an issue, but the customer has specifically asked that the I/O tag names be kept the same as the original program. Thanks for any help. - Ben   Converting PLC-5 reference manual link: https://literature.rockwellautomation.com/idc/groups/literature/documents/rm/1756-rm085_-en-p.pdf
  23. I have a new PC that is running Windows 10, I have RSLogix 500 loaded and working no problem, along with RSLinx, Factory Talk Activation... etc. I also loaded the Studio 5000 package and it loaded without a problem however will not run. It starts and allows you to pick a project to work on, then will display the Logix 5000 splash window for a second, then just close. No error message, crash or idea of what it is doing, just closes. So far no help from AB, perhaps someone here is running this on Windows 10 or has an idea how to figure out why it is closing. Thanks
  24. Hello! I have been working with a Factory Talk Studio V8.0 and my computer was crashed, "blue screen". After this, I can not open my panel project anymore, I only get information Failed to open factory talk private directory for the application. How to save my project?  
  25. Hi all, I am new AB family, currently got into a new project but i have following doubts, Please clarify my following doubts. Project Details : I need  to implement 21CFR part 11 Compliance in AB HMI (1&2) -  2711P-T10C4D1 & 2711P-T6C5D As per my study, i understand that 21CFR can be imlemented by FactoryTalkView(FTV) ME edition V10.00. But HMIs currently available are programmed using FTV 5.0 version. Can we upgrade the FW version of HMI and convert the old HMI backup (from FTV 5.0) to new Backup (FTV 10.00) and load it  without disturbing the old backup HMI screens/settings ? So, Please give me solution .... If you have datasheets, documents, Videos also , kindly share with me. Thank You in Advance, Thanks & Regards, M.Monish Kumar monish.uatpl@gmail.com
