  1. 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?

  3. SCPI Communication

    Has anyone been able to set up back and forth communication with a device that uses SCPI? I have a D2-260 and 5 Kikusui power supplies. The PLC already utilizes a RS485 Modbus network and also has an Ethernet connection. The power supplies only have a RS232 connection and uses SCPI commands. I have searched the web over and there are Modbus to ASCII converters but how to make it where to catch the response in a register for the PLC to find? I am open to anything, 5 small PLCs to there is no possible means to do this. Any direction would greatly be appreciated!
  4. Hello, I have use case for my FX5U-32M PLC controller that has an analogue output module that is hooked up to a 10V trigger SSR heater. I want to use the PID function output (MV) to control power output of the SSR heater (0 - 100%). My measurement value (PV) is an analogue input from a temperature sensor between (0 - 400C). With a temperature set point somewhere between that. I figure that as long as I know the percentage power I need to use,  I can use a pulse width modulation to trigger the SSR heater for the set amount of time each sample cycle.  I think desired output for the MV would be at high deviation under the setpoint that my power output would be 100 percent while lowering when approaching setpoint. But what I don't understand is how I would either guarantee that the values for the MV stay within that range.  Is it the case that I should just tune the PID to output sensible values but not worry too much if MV is in the 0-100 range and then anytime my MV is above 100 just output 100% on the SSR and vice versa for MV under 0? Or am I just approaching this the completely wrong way? Thank you in advance  P.S Currently my PID function block has the Integral and differential actions set to 0. I am experimenting with the standard PID function block with the proportional gain to see the relationship between deviation from setpoint and the proportional gain, What I don't understand is why when my deviation from set point is 13, the proportional gain is set to 1000% then I am seeing an MV of 130, rather than 13000 is there something I am missing about what the proportional gain actually represents.    
  5. Hi,     I'm trying to communicate Omron CP1E unit with PC via serial port using hostlink protocol.  I need to read the Timer/Counter SV value and write the timer/counter SV values to the PLC.  I'm able to use other C mode commands (like RC (timer/counter PV read), WC (timer/counter PV write) etc.) but when I give the command for Timer/Counter SV Read 1 which is R#, I get the response as IC (Undefined Command).   How do I write or read the timer SV Values?  Example command and response : @00R#TIMH001028*  (TIMH is the high speed timer, 0010 is the timer number and 28 is the FCS) Response: @00IC4A* Is is that CP1E doesn't support these commands? If so what is the equivalent command that I should send inorder to perform this? Please help.  
  6. Hi everyone - my first post here.  I have a customer with a SLC5/01.  The controller is 1747-L511.  Battery seems good.  The fault LED is flashing.   I tried to connect to it using RSlogix500 and I got this message (photo1).  I selected 'Load From EEPROM' and got this notice. (photo2) Customer has the printed ladder but I can't tell which data types are what. everything is just numbers - no B's, no I's and no O's.  the timers and counters are just numbers too. Luckily the printed ladder has a cover sheet, which led me to the PLC2.(photo3) The rack has two 8 channel inputs and 2 8 channel outputs.  I would like to replace everything with a micrologix 1400 or something, if I could translate the code. Can anyone advise on this matter please?      
  7. good day! I would like to put some ascii code in a device: D3000..D3009 has to be filled with 0x5F54 0x4F5F 0x4150 0x6F73...  ("_TO_APos")  When I fill it using an ascii-input-field in the designer and press "enter" it works. But I would like to put this text automatically in D3000 and following register, when the user press a switch-object. I tried with an 10 actions  "keycode" but I don't see how to say that the key code shouls be saved in D3000. Can somebody tell me the best way to fill more word devices with only one object switch? Thanks in advance   MEBoerner  
  8. My client is a pharmaceutical company and they want to interface their Blood Gas Analyzer (which is a RAPIDPoint 500) to a Controllogix PLC via EtherNet. I have attached a Spec that I found, which gives the initial information you would need to do this. It says that the BGA can transmit data in ASCII. However, it doesn't list what bits I need to send to the device in order for it to send the PLC the data. I've tried contacting Siemen's (who makes the BGA) and they were useless. I also tried searching the RA knowledgebase.  Does anyone have any insight on how to communicate with a device in this way? Thank you Tyler RP500_LIS_5_20_13_-_Rev_C_.pdf
  9. Hello! I want to execute a script exactly one time when I touch a switch. I add a switch on my screen, I set on the register "script" a little script to test, I checked  "use object script". When I start the GOT1455, the script runs all the time, even if I never touched the switch. Can somebody help me to find the issue? Or give a TODO List to exceute a script only If I touch a switch? Thanks a lot in advance MBoerner
  10. ASCII !@#$!@#(*&^

    Hi Guys, I need help/advice.  First, I'm not new to PLC programming and design. I've been doing this for 30 yrs.  OK that said, 30yrs ago I cared about things like PLC5 serial communications sending ASCII characters as it was a common thing.  Well, I've slept and drank a whole hell of a lot in 30yrs so I really don't care now but I need to do it again. I'm working on a PLC5 to Control Logix conversion.  The company will not update this ancient chamber environmental control.  So, the ASCII coms need to stay.  The old PLC5 took the command string to change the temperature and did a AWA command and out port 0 the new temp setting went.  Logix however, it is not that pretty.  I'm using a Prosoft Technology PLX31 Ethernet to ASCII.  My problem is, the Prosoft device data table in the Logix is data type SINT.  How do I get the command string "L1S"+temperature value, example 27C, so the command would be "L1S27" into the data type array of SINT.   The header is constant.  The only thing that changes is the digits.  So would you guess I convert the L & 1and put those in the first address, S and the first digit of the temperature in next address and the remaining digits in the 3rd word?   Perhaps I'm making it all too difficult.  From what this old memory is telling me, I need to convert each character into the ASCII Hex or Decimal equivalent.  So anybody out there still familiar with this s....tuff? 
  11. Are there any good guide books out there that parse down the NEC to the sections relevant to controls engineering and panel building?
  12. Hello all  i'm looking for some software to record a 100 plus channels maybe with an ascii string from a PLC? i want to be able to assign each channel with a unit and a range, flagging feature would be nice.  - selecting the channels i want to view  - auto start recording - save file and start new automatically  -view and create reports  preferably no additional hardware because of the amount of channels. this is to record an operators every move so in events of damage or plant failure we can quickly identify the problem (point the finger)  many thanks dan

  14. Major Fault

    I have a compact logix with a major fault. Please see my attached file for the complete fault message.  Code 20 array subscript too large. or control data type to large or invalid. Has anyone observed this issue before.  The PLC is a compact logix model.  Every time, the controller is switched from program to run the major fault occurs within 5 seconds.  The fault can be cleared but then it comes back in a few seconds.  I have been told by my tech that no program changes have been made.  Could there be a hardware/wiring issue? Thanks much Document_1234.pdf
  15. I've been building a contraption with linear rails and stepper motors. It has an X, Y, and Z axis. I'm using Velocio PLCs to control the motors which seems to be work well so far. I understand these are not very common and my question are related to general motion control, not Velocio programming specifically. Since I'm new to PLCs, programming, and stepper motion I thought I'd ask for some input instead of trying to reinvent the wheel. I'm to the point in the build where I'll be adding emergency stop/limit switches and am wondering how to go about writing the program; if there's an "industry standard" way to go about it. I figure the PLC will check to see if any switch is active. If one is, drive the motor away from it till it's inactive and store the location. If one is not, drive the motor until a switch activates then back off a until it's inactive and store the location. Drive the motor to the other limit of the axis (the number of steps should be known) to activate the switch, back off and store location. Rinse and repeat for the other axes. Is my approach about right?
  16. Hi, New to the site,  seeking help with an Inkjet Coder that the company I work for recently purchased. A customer is wanting us to have the printer message selection automated, because parts got out with the wrong print on them. We purchased a Linx 5900 and want to use the serial port on a slc 5/03 to send a command to select the message based on a selector switch's position. I've been pretty desperate trying to find help with this issue, because this is my first time messing with a printer. I've got the AWA instruction set up and it will send a string, but I'm not sure what to have in the string or if I have everything configured right. I've attached the program for you guys to look through, the AWA instructions are at the end of LAD 13. I'm using the serial port to make changes to the program then hooking it into the printer to try the changes out so its a bit frustrating, but I don't have a pc with windows xp sp2 so using the DH485 port is not an option. Any help will be greatly appreciated.   CNTRPUSH_4_2017.RSS
  17. I would like to send a character on a Micro830 using ASCII. I wish to send the character to a pc by using Real term or terra term on PC. Can somebody please let me know how can I configure the ladder diagram, I tried various commands including THE AWA, AWT and also the MSG_modbus however I can initiate the communication. I think that I am missing something cause I don't have a reference ladder diagram. Thanks 
  18. 1769-ASCII

    I'm using a 1769-ASCII and need help with one part of it.  I have no issues with sending data.  The manufacturer shows the following as the process...   My question is: how do I evaluate the XON\XOFF?  The machine states "This communication protocol tells the status if it can receive any data or not to the host by sending "XON" (HEX 11H) or "XOFF" (HEX 13H) to the signal line."  I never receive any data so I'm not sure what's wrong or if what I'm doing is correct.  The attached file is same code downloaded from AB's website which is what I based my code off of.   http://search.rockwellautomation.com/search?client=samplecode&oe=UTF-8&ie=UTF-8&output=xml_no_dtd&proxystylesheet=samplecode&site=sample_code&getfields=*&lang=en&hl=en&sort=date:D:L:d1&wc=200&wc_mc=1&ud=1&filter=0&q=ASCII   62119.exe
  19. Would someone please help me how to convert an integer to ascii?   For example if the output tag is an ascii string, of 3 characters and my numeric input is integer.   When user input a value of 5, I would like the input value to be convert and assign to output ascii string tag of "005".  How do I set the conversion format in either tag assignment or tag expression?
  20. ok i have a rotary encoder to a HSC on my tm221, im converting that to ascii and outputting the value to a lascar HMI over rs232. example of value sent: 1234     value received: 2143 there don't seem to be any options to set the LSB or MSB , any ideas?? Dan
  21. Trying to log into NA HMI, NA5-7U001B  Direct, using USB or Ethernet.  All attempts failed .. tho, it was easy to log into the NJ Controller, direct, with USB or Ethernet using the same PC. Then a window popped up.. saying the firmware needed updating in the HMI, and suggested launching the "update" from the same window... Then, after a few minutes.  a "update failed" was displayed on the window.. and the HMI screen changed to this: ..and the green LED went RED ... aaaaagh!   HMI no longer works... any idea why this happened, or the failure to log in happened.. or, what it will take to fix it? Please tell me it was something Omron did .... Thanks Much, Regards, ,Michael PS:  additional info..  I was using Sysmac Studio Version 1.1 .. because I could log in to the CPU (USB and Ethernet) and not the HMI.. I changed to another PC with Sysmac Studio Version 1.17 .. Now I was only able to log into the CPU with Ethernet.. USB login failed. .. and, so did any attempt to log in to the HMI (USB or Ethernet) It looks like if you use a new version of Sysmac.. better not have a device with  "old firmware" ..  I think it was the V1.17 that presented the window suggesting the Firmware Update ...  sigh!

  23. ASCII Code 8 Byte In Twido

    Hey Guys!!!! I'm trying to use ASCII 8 bites in TWIDO PLC and on MOD BUS TCPIP it connected to WinCC , where I'm trying to read the ASCII in as a STRING char that to in 8bits. The problem I'm facing is that it is getting swapped like if I'm writing VA in PLC then on SCADA it is showing AV. In WinCC there is no setting for word swapping. Therefore Kindly help me for this in plc end
