  1. 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

  5. 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?

  7. 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.  
  8. 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.
  9. 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}

  12. 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
  13. 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

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  
  16. Hey, I am fairly new to the NA screen so I didn't get time to research much but for some bizarre reason, if my alarm message is long instead of going to the next line it just continues. Is there a specific way of creating a multiline alarm. Any suggestion or if you have inside for a crash course on NA screen would be helpful. Thanks
  17. Factory Talk Linx 6.0

      Hi all, Iam currently working with a migration project from Rsview32 to FTView. I was able to convert the RSView32 SCADA to FTView successfully. Current scenario is like RSView32 (which was the existing pcs) SCADA is running in two stand alone PCs and Iam trying to line up the new Factory talk view SCADA in another system.Communication is taken from same ethernet switch to which all ethernet cables from 5PLCs in the field are terminated and from which RSView32 scada has taken itz communication. PLCs used there are 2 No.of  1747 L532E slc 5/03 OS302 Ser c Frn 10 & later and 3 Nos of 1747 L533E slc 5/03 OS302 aer c Frn 10 & later. communication taken via net eni (1761 NetEni) Ftview installed system is Windows 10 pro OS) Issue is while RSView32 scada is working properly, Factory talk view is not getting neither online tags nor able to play display for those linked with L533E processor.But everything is fine with L532E processor. I just tried with downloading L533E program to L532E processor and everything was getting. So am i missing something or what should i do to get proper communication with L533E processor.   plz help..Iam a beginner in this field.

  19. Good day, I would like to extract the FT View SE Alarm Log. We currently have got a Excel spreadsheet set up with a connection to the FTAE SQL Database.  When I refresh the data, Excel give an error telling me that the data is more than what can be displayed in a spreadsheet. So it then discards the latest data. I have tried setting a database limit in the Factory Talk Administration console to only keep the last 60 days worth of data but it does not seem to take effect. I get data from January 2017 up to 15 October 2018. Is there a way to configure the ODBC connection in excel to only give me the data for the last 30 days or is there someone that can help me to limit the size of the database? I have attached the current connection config.

  21. C-mode hostlink library for NJ/NX1P or CP1L

    Anyone knows if there is a C-mode hostlink library for NJ/NX ? Also, a C-mode hostlink library for CP1L could be helpful, to translate such a library to work with NX1P is probaly less work whan writing a new library.  Maybe Omron France has developed such a library? - they seem very active..   Background: Looking into writing a programmatic c-mode hostlink master for NX1P12, this is for connecting the handheld NSH5 HMI to the NX1P12 via RS232C using a CIF01. I have the hardware set up, and an machine built, expected some compatibility efforts by Omron.... but the NSH5 seems to talk C-mode hostlink, and the CIF01 only seems to support the FINS version hostlink.   On the NJ you can of course add an SCU module, thus not need a library.  But working with NX1 ( due to limited space available ), you are dependet on available CIF-modules which do not support C-mode hostlink.

  24. Hi. I am new to Allen Bradley PLCs and bumped into the following issue, that I cannot find any solution to. When trying to add a module to the I/O configuration I get the attached error, error code 80131940. This prevents me from adding any hardware configurations in Logix Designer. I have tried to reinstall Logix Designer and uninstall all AOPs. I am running V30.00.00 on a Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 OS. Your feedback is very much appreciated.
