  1. Please,if anyone has a working program (.stx).I need it to test a PL7 JUNIOR software
  2. Honeywell Experion SCADA

    I haven't used Experion before, nor do I have a licence or access to a download of the application. As such I want to know how limited an unlicensed version of the product is. Is it like Citect where you may develop graphics but need a license for runtime, or is it like FTView where you need a license just to open the application? Thanks in advance
  3. Citect...text string to sql

    Hi all, Needing an assist. We been trying to send a local var alphanumeric string to an Access DB using the SQL. We can successfully send integer/real values to the DB when they are entered via the var=FormNumPad() popup. I use SQLSet, SQLAppend, and SQLExec. Since we cannot generate text using FormNumPad(), we use the var=Input() command. The local var seems to hold the value entered on the screen, but a plc address writes the value for a moment then wipes it out. Then when we use the same SQL commands for the string var, the system immediately starts throwing errors. My guess is because the value is null. Any ideas? Is there a proper way to generate a keypad or textbox on screen? We are using v. 2016 on a Win10 box. Thanks in advance.
  4. Hi, In conception phase we currently use GXWorks to upload programs to PLC (L-Series). In production mode, for different security reasons we would like to automate this transfer so that the operator does not access directly to the program. Do you know any tool allowing this by using command lines and not GXWorks UI ? (GXWorks does not seem to be "command line" friendly As a POC I  have automated the GXWorks UI in C#  (by simulating menu or buttons clicks) but I don't find it reliable (what if an unexpected popup "pops" ? ). PS : I am a totally noob in this PLC world so maybe I missed stg in the docs ... 
  5. recover program from plc-5/15

    A machine was bought at auction which included PLC-5/15 module.  It did not come with a backup of the program.  Our maintenance technician said the program would not load and turned the module over to me (IT).  I notice the battery was installed in '92 so am assuming the program is lost.  Is their any internal memory or last ditch effort i can attempt to recover the program from this module?
  6. Multiple branch

    Hi Guys! You can read my problem below, if anybody can help, please do it. Thank you. So, I have 4 knife. You can set the cutting width for each knife separately. The problem is, there is a lot of size. There is an example: No1 size:  #1: 20 mm, #2: 25mm, #3: 30mm, #4: 25mm   (#1=Knife1.......)                                       No2 size: #1: 22mm, #2:24mm, #3: 32mm, #4: 27mm What is make the problem more difficult is There are plenty of type code too. Like X1, X2, X3, Y1, Y2, Y3 ..... This is the main material code. and you can choose the belogging size. So you can select for X1 to No1 or No2 ... but you can select for X2 to No1 or No2 or any sizegroup you want. I can solve it with a lot programming, like deal every possible situation ... but there is a lot time .... :S  There is a touch panel where you can set the values.  Anybody have another idea for this problem ?    
  7. We have a QSeries PLC. Q25HCPU. We also have a PLC program. We found that the address registers (also known as device addresses) attain a z-value added next to it - automatically over time. We are not sure why this is the case. Nonetheless, when these values get added (by the PLC - not the engineering software), some of the functions in the PLC doesn't work. We found that by formatting the CPU, and reloading the program, allows for the system to work again (temporarily) for a few weeks, up until this problem occurs again. This problem occurs across various CPUs (eliminating the potential for hardware problems. These z values can be seen when a program comparison is done. (see attached file). The questions become; 1. What is the function of these values? (why does the PLC add them? 2. How can they be permanently removed?
  8. SCADA for FX3U

    Hello everyone.  I got factory full of FX3U plcs and right now is needed to make a SCADA for monitoring (and maybe provide some control) all of them. I dont know which SCADA product to choose. Which one have bettter compatibility with mitsubishi plcs/which one is cheaper/or maybe simpler in use.  Thank you in advance.

  11. Light SCADA request

    Hi all,  How are you? Hope everything goes well with all of you.  I have a small project that involves only 2 PLCs and around 500 objects or tags. End user does not require HMI graphics of factory operation. Basically the system only need to collect data from the instruments, and generate reports automatically. So, I was wondering is there such really "light" SCADA system to serve this kind of production? Because if possible I wish to implement using only basic workstation machine, since its work load is supposed to be very light.  I am glad to have your comment. Thank you so much.
  12. 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.

  13. Hello i'm new in all things about plc, i do a project for school and i use a festo fc 34 plc. The plc is programmed via serial port RS232 my pc not support a serial interface and i use a RS232 to usb adapter. when a try to download the program to plc give me a error: "ERROR: Cannot access controller".  What i do wrong.  Thank you in advance and sorry for my English. Have a nice day.
  14.   Hi everybody, this is me psoting for the first time here.  Currently I am taking a distributed control systems course, and one of our current tasks is the following: "Develop a control system with the task to control an induction (asnychronous) motor. You may use HMI SCU 8B5 (Schneider electric PLC) and Altivar71( Schneider VFD). The communication protocol to be used is CanOpen. The process should be visualized on the HMI of the PLC. Using the IGSS scada system, you should be able to control and observe the system on a PC." I have written the SoMachine program that I will upload to the PLC(basically Schneider provided the code for the exact same hardware:https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VW9deqK5TeEEQeA6fZZjteijUs7xVPcH/view?usp=sharing). Then I moved on to set up the IGSS scada program, following the pdf manual listed on their site, page 18 and on:http://d2i1dro1ulg1xm.cloudfront.net/training/FullWS_Exercise_Master.pdf . I tried to follow through all the steps, however I do have a few questions. First, in step 8., which driver should I use for my hardware? I selected the Modicon driver, as that was one of the few Schneider drivers available(see attached image). My second question is with regards to connecting the variables that the PLC sends to the PC and actual objects in the graphical environment, such as on page 32. How do I do it? If anyone has more materials on this topic, it would be greatly appreciated. I can't get any help from my tutor(he refuses, and says we do our own research). If you know somebody who could perhaps help me out on this one, please feel free to share with them this question.     
  15. Elipse SCADA

    Hi, I'm adding some automatic slide adjusts to some progressive presses that use Elipse SCADA as their HMI software. I've never used it before and was wondering if anyone knew where I could learn the basics. All Google searches have yielded non-English tutorials and manuals and one unhelpful English manual. All I really need to know is how to establish communication and upload/download but any information provided would be greatly appreciate. The more thorough, the better.    Thanks!

  17. Looking for Socket TCP/IP communications program examples for Mitsubishi PLC iQ-R R04CPU using GX Works3, to compliment the Mitsubishi Ethernet manual Socket commands instructions. Unfortunately, the manual is missing real application ladder logic illustration examples of these commands. For example, the Socket Open Connection command, does not describe in what order or format to enter the IP Address.   For example, to enter IP Address 192.168.1.100, does the most significant octet 192 is entered or stored first in the lowest memory storage register (Big Endian format) or does the least significant octet 100 is entered or stored first in the lowest memory storage register (Little Endian format)? I am trying to write a simple Socket TCP/IP communications command that will write about four registers from an existing Mitsubishi PLC R04CPU (Socket Client) to an Allen Bradley PLC ControlLogix (Socket Server). .
  18. Popular HMI/SCADA Software Suites?

          Hi all. I'm new here. Quick background on myself: I was a 6-and-out Navy Nuke Electrician on a Sub. I finished my service in Jan 2015 and immediately went to work as a shift electrician at a steel mill. I always say I was a good nuclear operator, but a poor electrician. However, I think I have learned rather quickly and really enjoy PLC's and HMI development. At my company, we have a lot of liberty to modify code, create new projects, etc.      I primarily work with S7-300/S7-400 and GE UC's at work; and I have a Micrologix emulator and programming software I practice on. All of our HMI development is done in InTouch and I feel proficient with WW, having done some projects with Modbus/DASSIDirect on my own.     As this is the first industrial automation job I have ever had, I only know about the software and hardware I have been exposed to at work. My question is what are other popular HMI software suites that major employers use (and customers prefer), because I'd really like to become very good at the programming/control side of my job.     Thank you all very much. Adam
  19. The OPC Server for Siemens Controllers

    Good day to all forum members. I think many engineers are faced with the need to connect Siemens controllers to various SCADA systems. In most cases, the OPC technology is used to make such a connection. We want to offer participants to try our product, the OPC server for the Profinet protocol applied in Siemens controllers. Our OPC server supports the following standards: OPC DA 2.05, OPC HDA 1.2 and OPC UA (transfer of archives is supported too). Controllers of the following series are supported: S7-200, S7-300, S7-400, S7-1200 and S7-1500. The OPC server provides the interactive import of tags from the Tia Portal environment, and this simplifies configuring the server. The OPC server contains the built-in client for monitoring values, and this simplifies communication debug. There are the following modifications of the OPC server: - Demo version (full-featured, 1 hour continuous operation in the runtime mode) - Free version (32 tags at the most) You can download the trial version here: http://opc-server.com/catalog/mullti-protocol/profinet/ In addition to the OPC server for the Profinet protocol, we also support such protocols as Modbus, Omron FINS, Bacnet, IEC 60870-5-104, IEC61850 and SNMP.   We would love to hear feedback and feature requests to our products.

  21. The OPC Server for Omron Controllers

    Good day to all forum members. As you know, Omron controllers support FINS, the protocol of its own development. Despite the protocol is high-functional and well thought-out, few of SCADA systems support the protocol at the driver level, and therefore the main manner of connection of such controllers to SCADA systems is an OPC server. We want to offer participants to try our OPC server for the FINS protocol. Our OPC server supports the following standards: OPC DA 2.05, OPC HDA 1.2 and OPC UA (transfer of archives is supported too). The protocols FINS Ethernet and FINS Serial are supported, and this allows you to connect various modifications of Omron controllers, both with and without Ethernet cards. The OPC server contains the convenient utility of import from a file formed by CX-Programmer, and this simplifies configuring the server. There are the following modifications of the OPC server: - Demo version (full-featured, 1 hour continuous operation in the runtime mode) - Free version (32 tags at the most) You can download the trial version here: http://opc-server.com/catalog/mullti-protocol/opc_server_for_omron_controllers/ In addition to the OPC server for the FINS protocol, we also support such protocols as Modbus, Profinet, Bacnet, IEC 60870-5-104, IEC61850 and SNMP.   We would love to hear feedback and feature requests to our products.

  23. CX-Thermo program

    Hello, I am working with e5cc-t programs, for heating application. I need to find a way, to start program, when temperature reaches set-point of first (no. 0) segment. I think that, there should be some kind of setting, but i cant found it.. I've done this with PLC, but this is not an solution for this application. in conclusion: After program starts, it has to reach set point temp, and then hold temperature for certain time.  
  24. GX Works2 & MX OPC Server 6.10 issue

    Hello! What i am about to do is connecting an external SCADA system to a Mitsubishi PLC via OPC server. I have already made some FBs and included their instances in a program in GX Works2, then started a GX Simulator2 and connected it to an OPC Server. From the OPC configurator I have defined some tags with their corresponding device addresses (e.g. D12345). I am using structured variables which device addresses i am entering in the OPC configurator. Tried to make some full rebuild compiling and at first was happy that the devices remain unchanged. The main problem is that after some time this devices change which completely ruined my experiment. Maybe there is some point that I am missing or there is just no way to use a fully functional SCADA connected that way to the Mitsubishi PLC (by OPC)? The question is is there a way to tell a particularly used instance of a function block to have exactly the same device addresses ever.
