  3. Modbus/TCP PN communication

    Hello, I'm trying to make communication between a 315-2 PN/DP and MSA Gasgard XL. I want to read out 40010, and 40020 from GasGard, it works sometimes, but most of time the connection does'nt  build up.  The parameters i using are: Start address: 9 Lenght: 10 Recv_Time: 5s Conn_Time: 5S I did playing with Recv and Conn Time and it effected the rate of succesful connections, but it still drops too often. Also i tried to read only 9 and 19, but then it didn't read 19. Anyone knows how could i optimize the connection? Thanks

  5. I'm looking at project with an OMRON NJ-101.  I was planning on using Modbus TCP/IP from the PLC to talk to a MOXA gateway (MB3170) which would then talk to about 7 different slaves over RS-485.  Looking at detail at the blocks that are supplied by OMRON (MTCP_NJ V1.3, available from, I noticed that it doesn't send the slave ID, which will mean that it won't be able to talk to different slave ids through the one IP Address. I had a look through the actual code and it sends "FF" in place of the slave id.  In particular I was looking at the "MTCP_Client_Fn03" block. Is there another way to get the NJ101 to talk the full MODBUS TCP/IP protocol? Is it possible to edit the blocks provided by OMRON?  It seems to me that they are locked down. If I could edit it I could just add the functionality Thanks for your help in advance.
  6. Fx3ge to Fx3ge communication trough lan

    Hello, For my assignment, I need to control lights from 2 seperate locations. I have two FX3GE-24M plc's connected through a LAN network. The idea is that when input X004 gets high, relays Y000 to Y004 gets disabled. I'm trying to use the Fixed Buffer communication protocol.  Master IP address: Slave IP address: I'm using GX Works2 together with the FX configurator  I'm lost in all the different datasheets... Could someone point me to the direction on what settings i need to change using fx configurator and a basic program of communication?  Thanks in advance, Dennis
  7. Hello guys, i want to connect my CP1e-N30DT to modbus device like weighing scale, but i try to searching modbus with RTU but all of them use function block, i dont understand and i think my device cant use a function block.  Can you help me for connect CP1E to modbus device for get a holding register(4xxxx),input register(3xxxx), coil(0xxxx) and input status(1xxxx) with cx programmer? thank you 
  8. We have a Injection Molding Machine from Mitsubishi with a A2US-S30 CPU. I would like to establish a communication of this PLC with a  PC. The CPU has a 25 Pin Dsub connector. How can I achieve this? This is an old machine and we don't have any manual for this PLC. Somehow I could find an instructions manual on the internet but this manual does not contain information regarding PC communication or supported communication modules.  I have never worked with this Mitsubishi A series PLC. Please suggest a way to start and share any manual which I could refer to. Thanks!
  9. Greetings everyone, I have a Proface HMI(LT-4201TM Modular type DIO) connected to a siemens flow transmitter(MAG6000). Communication between these two devices is using modbus. The modbus register that im using to get the data/reading of a totalizer from siemens transmitter are 403022 and 403023. I managed to display the exact totalizer value from siemens transmitter on the Proface HMI screen. But I couldnt get the exact totalizer value at the ladder logic side, the value that i get at the ladder logic side seems like a raw value. For an example, the totalizer's value is 147083(real value), but at the ladder logic side the value for 403022=15598 and 403023=17316.   Can anyone guide me to solve this issue.   Thanks in advance.
  10. HMI and Weighing Indicator

    hallo, i have problem here. i want to connect HMI OMRON NB7W-TW00B to weighing indicator with Modbus RTU rs485. i use this link for wiring diagram for rs485. and the baudrate, databit, parity check and stop bit is same between HMI and weighing indicator. but the output in HMI is "[2] PLC No Response: 00-01-2" i think the problem is my rs485 connection. can you help me? thank you.
  11. Morning Guys, For my latest project I need to read a gas sensor via 485 from a Momentum PLC. I've been through the help files, but they seem to only raise more questions than they answer, they only seem to reference PLC -> PLC comms. I've had a play with the 'MBP_MSTR' & 'OUT_IN_MBUS' function blocks, but i can't seem to get anywhere, Has anyone got any examples of reading in data via 485, or can anyone lead me in the right direction?
  12. Hello, I wanna be sure before I'll spend some money, will I be able to control Turck devices (ie ), from I've found here on forum and on internet it looks to me like it should be possible, but I'm new in field of automatization.   Thanks in advance EDIT: I'm talking about Modbus
  13. WeinTek to AB PLC Issues

    I am connecting a WeinTek eMT3105P to a CompactLogix L2 series PLC via the WeinTek Rockwell PLC (CompactLogix) - Free Tags driver and I cannot for the life of me get the thing to connect. I have all my tags imported and have played around with all the settings in the manuals I can find. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. I know my IP addresses are correct and if I connect my cable directly from the HMI to the PLC I still get the "PLC no response" message 
  14. 1 slave to multiple masters

    Hello everyone. I got the project where plc Q00UJCPU with the module QJ71MB91 connected to the slave device via 485 channel . This plc takes some values (like current/voltage etc). i dont have access to this plc cause he is on guarantee on another service company. So question is... How to connect to this device as a other plc FX3U via 485ADP-MB (and i think RS command) module in parralel to QPLC already working link? Is this possible without harm QPLC and all the data which he takes?
  15. RS485 Async

    Hey guys I don't have much experience in PLC serial communication and I'm tasked to integrate 6 OP-905 scales with our EATON based control system. The scales are rs485 asynchronous serial communication, my concern is that if the device is not designed to be an RTU then I cannot use modbus. And if that is the case how do I talk to multiple scales using the async protocol. Has anyone done this in a similar platform? 
  16. Operation error

    I am developing an application with fx5u with inverter d700, it fails to send a command to the inverter, only running the application and monitoring the clp does not appear to fail, only when it sends a command. Attached photo of plc configuration and error. Do you have any secrets to doing communication, can I do it with a normal network cable? I'm doing with just one inverter, as the terminator should be at 110 or 330 ohm.    
  17. Hello to all, I am new here, and I have a project with FX3U plc and CR 2DA 700 robot controller. Does anyone have some experience in establishing communication over FX 3U enet module and robot controller, I need to send and receive 5- 10 M registers and D integers. Thanks
  18. Hello everybody, I have network from : PC - PLC - I change this option in FX5U PLC in GX Works3 for Network Ethernet port --> Application Setting -> Security -Disable Direct connect with MELSOFT : Enable/disable -DO not respond CPU module search : Respond / not respond and I upload program to PLC. After upload program to PLC and restart it was impossible to connect again. I Have ping between PLC and PC, but could't write program. Always writes me Error <ES:0180840b> So to disable Security Option you should to do : 1. Open Works3 2. New Project (Choose your PLC - FX5U) 3. Online menu 4. Specify Destination Communication 5. Click twice in PLC module 6. Set Connect via hub (In my case i connect PC and PLC directly !) 7. Choose IP Address ( in my project : , PC must be in same network 192.168.3.X) 8. Give OK 9. Connect Test. With steps I disable security options and it was enable to connect to PLC and Write data on it. I Hope that will help to other with same problem.

  19. Hi All, Networking guy here, looking for network experts on a AB PLC (1756-EN3TR/B v217021900) which seems to STOP ARPing for a device after 10 ARP's. The device is purposefully powered down, but when powered up, it can take minutes before the PLC sees it again. The PLC team says only changes in the PLC's logic are made. When an older backup is restored though, I do NOT see the issue somehow. 1) The devices that are powered down are back on the network and reachable within 10 seconds or so (ping). The initial thought was that they were not even on the network, but they are. Just that PLC shows a comms loss. 2) With the 'good code', the PLC, once the device is offine, keeps sending ARPs to find the device. The first one is a directed one, the subsequent ones are broadcasts. These broadcasts keep happening till the device is back online and is able to talk to the PLC again. 1st ARP after comms is lost: 474.423859     Rockwell_cf:a7:6c     Hilscher_2e:ea:08     ARP      60     Who has Tell Next and subsequent ARPs after the first one: 475.423471     Rockwell_cf:a7:6c     Broadcast             ARP      60     Who has Tell These ARPs keep happening every 1 second, till the device is online again. 3) With the bad code, the PLC, once the device is offline, sends only 10 ARP messages total and then stops sending ARPs altogethe . Then it takes 10 minutes* before it sends another one. If the device is backup online by that time, the PLC finds it right away. SO with these 2 different code bases, how is that a low level L2 protocol like ARP is impacted so much. The PLC team tells me that they have no idea and not set anything related to it. My question is where is the ARP network behaviour governed and how to change it? How can older code which supposedly only has changes in logic have different ARP behavior? * The 10 minutes interval might lead people to think it's a ARP timer and most likely it is, but then people usually ask about gratuious ARPS (garp) and I've verified that they make it through from the device to the PLC OK. If the device is offline for say a minute, the PLC mirrored port does indeed see the garps, yet at that point the PLC is no longer ARPing and regardless of that garp, it has to sit out the time till it sends a next ARP till it connects. Thus, I suspect the coming back to life process is governed by the PLC ARPing for it, and not by the detection of a garps. Thanks everyone!  
  20. Hello everyone. I have Omron CJ2M-31 PLC with SCU32 communication unit, and 34 3G3MX2 drives with repeater. I use "Easy to use Modbus RTU Master for CP1L CP1H CJ1 CJ2 CS1" written by our member PMCR (thank you PMCR for sharing your experience). I need to reed VFD status, reset fault, and write the speed. I tried the sample code version 2.12 with a single VFD, but in my test application it works inconsistent. I had got communication in the first place, I could control the drive, but I lost it after program modification and downloading (I did not touch communication part). I was able fix communication only once, and lost it again. I didn't find any correlation between my action and communication presence ( I tested dual port program version). If the communication is present, SCU unit blinks fast, otherwise slow. I have cleaned PLC memory and initialized PLC without any luck. Unfortunately, PMCR is offline. If anyone is proficient with mentioned above program, please advise where to look. Thank you in advance.

  22. CX Supervisor Modbus RTU

    Can CX Supervisor be used as modbus RTU master using RS232/RS485 or USB/RS485 converter to connect it to PLC or panelmeter or other modbus slave units and how? Any example? Thanks in advance Goran
  23. Cimplicity 7,5

    Good Day There is a SCADA Cimplicity and controller Control logix 5561 AB. Communication between them is organized via Ethernet IP. It is necessary to transfer some tags from the Cimplicity to the controller Control Logix. How to do it better? Through Rslinx DDE OPC or write scripts in the Cimplicity? 
  24. 1.Can anyone say how can i communicate control logix plc with ethernet to serial converter. here i am not having any eds file.
  25. RSLINX help

    I am using rslinx in my configuration with 2 devices: windows xp computer and an SLC 5/05 CPU.  The XP PC is running a program that relies on a file that is automatically dropped in a shared folder from a separate networked PC.  The file is deleted immediately from the shared folder.  The program on the XP PC uses rslinx to control the SLC 5/05 CPU to complete the operation.  The original XP PC hard drive failed and a new PC was installed with all the necessary software and services.  Ounce I completed the  setup, the process worked for 48 hours, then stuck in one operation (one file).  Now, I can restart rslinx and the software and the process will function normally, but stall, then get stuck on one file.  There are no files in the shared folder, rslinks has not lost connection.  The original router was replaced at the same time as the PC.  I am leaning towards rslinx storing the files somewhere and stalling/stopping the operation.  I can not find files anywhere.  Does the SLC 5/05 CPU store the files?  I'm lost.  Do you have any troubleshooting suggestions?
