  1. I'm attempting to make a backup of a program, complete with comments. I go connect to the PLC over Ethernet, and select Use Upload File to merge the comments from an original copy of the program. After that, I go file-saveas to backup the program. However the new saved file, complete with comments is only 134 KB, and the very original copy of the program is 230 KB, from 2003. Is there a reason for this, the program hasn't shrunk in size, only minor tweaking of some span calibration numbers.
  2. Hey, I recently started trying my hand at creating function blocks. At the moment I'm trying to create a PID function block, however I keep getting this error: "ERROR: Variable does not have enough size." No idea why it does this. Can anyone help?  
  3. MBE Driver can't save config file

    Hello!I am using MBE Driver v7.46b on Windows Server 2012 R2. Problem is that I can't save config file. I can edit Channels, devices and data blocks, I can see incomming values, I save a file without any message. But config file is not saved. In Event viewer I get error as you can see on picture. It says: Error writing to system registry: Driver App 00000001 \Driver defaults. Other error says: Error writing to system registry: ServerMsg 00C54BB8 \Driver defaults.Is it server or driver problem? Please help. At the moment I can't edit anything in driver so I can't configure it to use it with my SCADA iFIX 5.8
  4. In the machine is array with size 100 (ARRAY [1..100]]. Can I simply change it to 200 without data loss?
  5. Exceed maximum step size

    Hi guys!   Need some help from the real specialists!   I`am used to work normally with Scheider Unity and make my program`s always in function blocks. Now working on my first GXworks2 project, and programmed the whole project also in FBD.   I have an FX2N-32MR plc, and defined in the configuration the maximum step size of the cpu to 8000 steps. I have compiled my program successfully, but the result gives an program size of 10217 steps. (and i`m not finished programming yet)   Converting the program to ladder or ST is not possible i think....?  (and i`am not very familiar with those languages) Add additional memory card is also not possible because of the type installation. Did have some self-made function blocks inside, but they are very simple.     How is counting of steps working in GXworks2? Are the 8000 steps for the complete project, or per POU, so than split into pou,s will reduce steps??  Strange is when i add one single BIT move block into the program, and compile again. Program size becomes 10229.  (so the one move block is 12 steps?)   Are there any tips for reducing the memory/program  load?     
  6. Hello folks,   I am a rookie, self-training in PLC programming. I have written an SFC exercise (attached ACD file). I also try to call STL written subroutines and add-on instructions, from within the SFC main program. Calling the created subroutine works fine, but calling the add-on instruction fails from a reason which is above my level. I tried, tried and tried different solutions, with no avail. I am either wrong in writing the add-on (perhaps some missing but missing tag ?), or wrong is calling it. Can someone please give me a hint on what I do wrong ?   Thank you, Radu PS . I use Studio 5000 v24, combined with RSLogix 5000 Emulator.     SFC_trial.ACD
  7. Hi All, I am pretty new at electrical design for PLC control panels. We are a UL508A shop, so this is the code I refer to most. Something struck me as odd when I was trying to size wire for this control panel. UL508A 28.3.1 says this: The required size of the field wiring terminal shall not be less than 14 AWG (2.1 mm2) and shall be determined by: a) Calculating the required ampacity per 28.3.2 – 28.3.6; and b) Determining the minimum field wiring conductor size from Table 28.1 having a corresponding ampacity that is equal to or greater than the required ampacity from (a). How can the minimum wire size be #14 AWG? We use #16 AWG for wire to the PLC modules? Are we breaking code or is there something I am missing? Also, understanding code books can be difficult. Is there a website or place I can go to get a plain English translation? I feel like I will read a sentence over and over again to try to understand what they are saying, and feel like there's is a much easier way to say it than the way it is written. For example, "28.3.1 b" ……...what is it really saying?  
  8. CID and ICD file creation. Hi, I have a system that is using a PowerLogic G3200 to convert Allen Bradley MicroLogix 1100 Modbus to IEC 61850, but I am lost when it comes to creating an ICD / CID file. Does anyone have any experience in doing this? I have no help from Schneider technical support, they say the G3200 is not supported. Thanks in advance. Steve
  9. 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.
  10. I am using TIA Portal V14 to program a Siemens Mobile HMI (KTP900 Mobile). I would like to pull up a program 'signature' from the HMI that would allow me to verify that the code in the HMI is the correct version.  This would help prevent an accidental overwrite of old code, resulting in a single Mobile HMI that has differing code from several others that are also in use. The closest comparison would be a Safety Signature from a Safety PLC.  However, I just want to use a file checksum or similar variable that I can put on my screen. Any ideas?  I appreciate it. 
  11. RS Logix Designer Tags

    Hi, Is that possible to define INT data type in EDS file so the Tags for the module in RS Logix Designer would receive INT data type in Input Tags not SINT? As marked in the image, the Logix Designer is receiving data as SINT but I want to have INT data type. Thanks Muhammad Azeem
  12. NTST485

    HI ALL I TRY TO OPEN A PROGRAM .*mmi on the NTST487 ERROR this version of the file cannot be loaded ????!!!!
  13. Hi everybody. I'm just getting started with GX Works 3 and I feel a bit lost. If I have an external help file for my function blocks, how do I register this in the program? I can't find it anywhere when I double-click the fb library or in the e-manual Viewer. The file format is .CHM and I have imported this to GXW2 earlier.   /Niklas
  14. Can Anyone Come Up with the Screen Shots or a video link of procedure for Displaying Real Time Sinusoidal Waveforms From Satec MFM ON GE FANUC?? I have PACsystem RX3i via Serial Communications Module-IC695CMM002 
  15. I believe I have found a bug in FactoryTalk View ME version 8.10. I have a trend object that uses parameter file placeholders on the connections tab. These are direct-addressed to the shortcut ie {[PLC]...}. The historical data from the datalog does not show. (The pens write lines, but when I navigate away from the screen and come back, the lines are gone and begin drawing again from the right side.) The current data does show. This tells me that the placeholders are correct syntax. When the screen loads, the placeholders are being replaced by a string which yields a correct tag path, or else the pens would not be writing correct data. When I replace the placeholders manually and directly address the tag, the historical data does show correctly. This tells me that the datalog is set up correctly and is logging data. I have verified that a previous project of mine, using I believe version 6.0, successfully used this method of using one screen and one trend to plot various tags using parameter placeholders, and the historical data did show correctly.
  16. Hi I have problem to find eeprom bin or hex file to eeprom message memory on XBT-A72101.

I have new empty eeprom and programmer but i don't have firmware file and can't read old memory beacouse not working.  Could be somebody help me with this file. Best Regards. Michal.   
  17. Factory Talk SE CAB file missing

    Hi guys, I recently was asked to configure a computer to host an Factory Talk SE Client application. I was able to get everything working except the trends and the Alarm window, all I have is the cross hatch screen. at the bottom of the screen it is saying cause: Trend: CAB file missing on the server: http://hmi1/RsviewActiveXControlSetup/RSTXView2ocx.CAB. I have worked on this for a while and am stumped. All the other computers on the same domain network are working fine, so it leads me to believe my problem is with my installation on the new computer. Any suggestions or if you need more input please let me know. Thanks
  18. .cin file question.

    I'm fairly new to the world of automation so please excuse me if get my terms mixed up. I think I know the answer to this but its not quite clear in the manuals. I'm on a project that has about 9 CJ2H PLCs that we are doing a re-commisioning job. In each of the PLC files we have backup files and the program files. Some of the PLCs have .cin files for CX Integrator and some don't. Some of the files have routing tables as well. We are wondering if we are supposed to have a .cin file for each PLC and that this a must have file in order for the PLC to comunicate with other devices in the network? If each network is supposed to have one this means that we were not given those files from the original owners and then we need to create new ones. I'm thinking that its not a big deal and pretty easy to setup the network configuration. Anyone out there have any experience? Thanks
  19. Hello! I am creating a project with Logix Designer, version 24. In the project I am using 1734-AENTR/B devices in etherner/IP-bus. I find out that there is only old versions of Logix Designer, only Major version 3 and 4 but the device that I have is the version 5. So I downloaded this EDS-file from Rockwell support-pages and installed it with EDS HW tool. After this, I can not choose this device 1734-AENTR/B with Major version 5. How to get this installed version to the project? After installation I have reboot my programming device and there is not RS Linx running in my computer.
  20. During run time on my KTP700 BASIC HMI panel, there is a keyboard pop-up screen that appears, when I press on an input field (for example, like the one in the inbuilt Logon pop-up screen). Is it possible to change the font size, and/or the size of the keys on this keyboard? How so? Thanks in advance.
  21. I am using a KTP700 BASIC HMI panel. I have two languages in the HMI program. On the inbuilt Logon screen, I want to show English text in size 21, French text in size 15. In Runtime settings > Languages and Fonts, I give each language different font sizes, but when I run the program on the HMI panel, they both show up the same size. (For example, I set English to font size 21, and French to font size 15. However, if I access the password screen in English, then later in French, the text is shown in font size 21 in both occasions). This is a problem because the French words are longer, and hence some letters get cut off. Any ideas about how to get around this? (besides just using font size 15 for both?)
