  1. OMRON CP1L PC Link over Bluetooth

    Greetings, My application is utilizing two Omron CP1L PLCs connected through an RS232 serial link to achieve PC Link. We're essentially using this setup to message data between the two PLCs. With a hard-wired link, it works great. I can force bits in the master PLC, and see them in the slave PLC. However our application requires this link to be wireless. We got our hands on two SENA Parani SD1000 units. I've worked with these units previously to connect a serial scanner to a Rockwell PLC quite successfully. After reading through datasheets, we figured out the pin-out from Serial Comms unit fitted to the CP1Ls wasn't quite standard. So we adapted our own cables to re-route VCC and SG appropriately. So with a hard-wired link, this setup works, and the comms units on the PLCs have a nice solid lit up comms light. But with the wireless parani connection, the comms light lights up, but it is very dull compared to the wired link, and we get no data transfer. I've verified to the best of my understanding that the comm settings all match, at 9600 Baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and Even parity. Just curious if anyone has any suggestions to get this working, or if there are any settings that I might have missed that make PC Link a unique form of RS232 that these parani units can't handle? I've identified online alternative units known as the Promi SD205-OA, which has a pin-out to match the OMRON CP1L PLCs. As far as I can tell though, the units themselves function the same as the Parani SD1000 besides this pin out. Anyone know differently? Presently the serial connections made are Tx -> Rx, Rx -> Tx, Vcc -> Vcc, and SG -> SG. Would I require anymore connections? Our wired link seems to work just fine with just those connections.   Any help would be greatly Appreciated!!
  2. Everyone, Using a Q series Mitsu PLC interfacing with a M1P Pilz Safety PLC - and only receiving 32 bits from the SPLC. I have the station setup in GXWorks2 as a device station (occupying 4 stations). I am receiving only the 1st station of the 4 designated. (It is node 9 in the snippet) Any tips on this? (First time posting btw) Thanks, Elliot
  3. Hi every one, I'm new here. Is there any CC-Link IE field basic master or simulator that can be use on Windows PC, for testing  CC-Link IE field basic slave communication ?   Thanks in advance    
  4. Hi   I'm beginner from plc programing, I  need to sent data (D0000-D0010) to PC through Host link mode . i just sent data from PC to PLC with command serial port is work only like below PLC_Serial.println("@00SC0252*");//sent to monitoring mode PLC_Serial.println(CalcFCS("@00KSHR 004500"));//set H45.00 to hight PLC_Serial.println("@00SC0352*")//sent to run mode but  PLC to PC i don't know how to do . Could you advise me ? Thank you.
  5. Hey everyone! New member here, and this site has always been a big help!  I try to help other folks too, but a lot of guys are super quick on here.   I've got a problem using some obscure components. I inherited a sensor network at work that uses Panasonic S-Link and I need to read them from a Q-Series. Panasonic makes a module that slots into the Q Series called an SL-VMEL-Q that I have.   My question is:  Did I do everything correctly on my Mitsubishi side? I put it into the parameters as an intelligent module with 64 points and I put the correct address in for the start I/O. Is that all I have to do?  This is the first time I used a module that wasn't on the drop down list when you add one in GX Works 2.   I can read and write to the buffer memory, but I can't get the unit to send to or receive from the sensors. I think the problem is that there is no end unit on the S-Link line (I don't know if it's just a terminating resistor or what), but it previously worked without one, so I can't be certain.
  6. Hey guys, I've question about Transient transmission (TT) via CC-link using FX5 as a master. According to chapter 4.3 in "FX5 User's Manual (CC-Link)" only way to access TT is via computer with GXworks3. Is there some workaround to use standalone FX5?   Thanks again
  7. CC-Link IE + C#

    We have a controller written in C# and need to integrate a servo.  We are looking at the Mitsubishi servo MR-J4 line.  Unfortunately it doesn't support Modbus TCP but does have the CC-Link IE protocol.  Does anybody know if it is possible to talk to CC-Link IE via C#?   I'm having a helluva time trying to find an answer.  I see some thing about Seamless Message Protocol (SLMP) and CC-Link but the info is somewhat sporadic.  Any advice is much appreciated as I've never worked with the Mitsubishi product line (but interested in their PLCs).
  8. Here is a link to a thread on a recent post showing how to communicate serially to an Omron PLC using VB.Net. This uses the Omron Host Link serial protocols. (C-Mode Commands) It will read 10 DM registers and display them on the form.   http://accautomation.ca/implementing-the-omron-host-link-protocol-vb-net/ Here is the source program that can be downloaded.

  10. RS232 ascii to CC-Link

    Hey all, im looking for some way to convert ASCII msg from rfid reader send through rs232 to CC-Link, I've found AJ65 from mitsu and some converter from Anybus, but I would like something much smaller...   changing readers for some CC-link compatible is most likely out of question (unless reader will be cheaper than converter), because they are legacy HW with hundreds of them instaled   Thank you
  11. Hallo. I want to know if its possible to write to eeprom of an A800E inverter via cc-link ie. I have successfully written and read any parameter to the ram. But now i need some parameters to be stored in the eeprom. Im using the A8NCE card on the inverter. The manual only states a bit to write speed and torque to eeprom, but nothing on any other parameters.
  12. I am trying to setup a CC Link between two machines. I have done this before without issue, but for some reason this is not going well.. I added a second CC link card to CPU2 and set it as ST 24 for the CPU1 network.  CPU 1 : Master.   cc0.jpg.   The original machine was setup using TO/From for each station, so i couldn't add this new link through the GUI.  CPU 2: Local cc1.jpg  When i try to use the GUI to setup this side the buffer stops working. but if i activate any TO/From instruction here i get a system fault with a 2110 SP. Unit Error CPU2 buffer cc2.jpg. But when i block the TO/From you can see the buffer is working at that exact same location specified.    2110 error says I am addressing the wrong card but the buffer proves that I am not. 
  13. Hallo. Im hoping someone can shed some light on these topics. The company im working for have been using gx developer iec 7.04 for ages. The setup we have been using is QxUDE plc with beijer HMI and FR-E700 inverters on profibus. Recently(finally) we have been forced to start using gx works 2 because of newer plcs. With new software come new questions as always. And since im feeling we have been hanging in old software for too long. I want to make sure we are up to date this time. The setup we plan on using is QxUDV cpu, CC-link ie (QJ71GF11-T2), FR-A800 inverters and GOT 2000 for HMI I have made a few project in siemens and TIA portal. And software wise it has always annoyed me, that mitsubishi lacked the same integrated software package as siemens. This made me discover navigator. With system labels navigator makes the variable control, hardware setup and project overview im missing from siemens possible. My question to navigator is. Does people use this? i dont see much about it on the forum? is it already outdated? Gx works 2 or 3 Again i cant figure out what is new and what is old. What are the pros and con for choosing either? CC-link ie or CC-link From internet reading. I find that IE is the newest and faster CC-link version? Is the classic CC-link on the way out? If not why should i choose IE over classic? When setting up CC-link IE in navigator i dont get the same hardware in the catalog as CC-link. To setup inverters i need to user general intelligent device station. Whereas in cc-link i can choose FR-inverters. Is this the way it works? or can hardware catalogs be updated somehow? Blocks for FR-A800 Maybe its just me. but i really think the search function on the mitsubishi download page is crap. When i filter QPLC i get LPLC etc. ive been trying to find some blocks to control inverters without luck. Do i start creating it myself or can you point me in the right direction? I know these are a lot of mixes questions. But i feel we have been non-efficient for years because of bad software choices. Hope someone can shed some light one these points.
  14. Hello. There is a controller FX5U-32MP in the presence, the inscription "CC-Link IE Field Basic" and the Inverter (FR-A840-00170-E2-60) near the connector, the inscription "CC-Link IE Field Basic" on the front panel. I set up both devices according to the instructions. It turns out to read the state of the inverter (state, frequency). And I can not manage from the controller. Already all the settings that could have changed. Can you scribble what is wrong? p.s. Sorry for the bad english.

  16. CJ1M-CPU12 Host Link Protocol(FINS)

    Hi all,I tried connect to CJ1M-CPU12 with Host Link Protocol from PC.I sended(without spaces)  "@00FA F 00000000 0101 82 0038 0A +FCS *Cr" through peripheral port for read Dm area.But PLC didn't answer.I tried again with 19200 7E2,9600 7E2,115200 8E1.But  result is same no answer.DIP switches on the PLC are are ON all of them.I read W342-E1-14 CS_CJ_CP+HostLink FINS ReferenceManual.But I didn't solve this problem.Finally hooked Rs232 Port and sended same code with 19200 7E2.PLC sended to me "@00???".Is peripheral port settings wrong?If it is not what's wrong? Thank you

  19. Help with CC - Link IE Field

    Hi Im working with an iQ-R CPU wich controls 6 conveyors with a CC-Link IE Field Network, the CC-Link module is a RJ71EN71. Each conveyor has a remote I/O (NZ2GF2B1-16TE Digital outputs main module with a NZ2EX2B1-16D extension for Digital Inputs). The communication in the CC - Link IE Field diagnostic appears to be OK, but I can´t send or receive IO signals from the Batch Monitor of Gx Works 3. Thanks for your attention!
  20. FX5 CC-Link IEF Basic

    hello. I have developed project with 3 FX3U PLCs with ENET modules for communicating between them, and one of fx3u connected by profibus with 2 fx2n-32DP-IF I/O station (developed just hardware). This project still wait when customer accept it. I'm exactly sure that it will work perfectly. But now i think about exchange old and expensive fx3u to fx5u. I search for best solution for this task on fx5. I have a doubt with I/O station. Each remote station consist of 32 inputs,16 outputs, 8 AI. So i considered as a solution CC-Link IE Basic because no need buy additional modules. Did someone use fx5 CC-Link IEF Basic? As i understand ie field basic configurations like simple rs485 cc-link with occupied station, not like full ie field. FX5U can be the master of CC-link IEF basic with embedded ethernet with 6 slaves station and can be local station with FX5-CCLIEF module. But i not sure that i can use fx5 with NZ2 CC-Link IE Field Remote I/O. I have a doubt with configuration this station, because in CC-link IEF i can add this station and see how many rx/ry rww/rwr points i need, but for CC-link IEF basic configuration i can add just CC-link IEF basic module and choose number of occupied station. Slave 1) NZ2GFCE3-32D + NZ2EX2S1-16T (32/16) and  NZ2GF2BN-60AD4 + NZ2EX2B-60AD4  (8 AI). Slave 2) NZ2GFCE3-32D + NZ2EX2S1-16T (32/16) and  NZ2GF2BN-60AD4 + NZ2EX2B-60AD4  (8 AI). So can it work if not what device can be used with CC-link IEF basic? What benefits can give cc link ie field basic network than ethernet socket connection via UDP between 3 fx5 plcs? Or easier way using ST lite series and try to connect via modbus tcp.(as i understand fx5 provide p502 and modbus tcp)  
  21. Mitsubishi CC link

    Hello every one. can any one explane me maximum how many CC link card we can configure in one  QJ61BT11N module. and whwt is difference between CC link and Input/Output card
  22. CC-link no digital output

    Hello, I have set up a new CC-link to add I/O to our existing factory PLC (Q03 series CPU). The CC-link system comprises of a master station (QJ61BT11N) and a remote device station (STlite STL-BT1) with several DI, DO and AD modules. Parameters are as per the STlite quick start guide example except no. of occupied stations is 3. In PLC Parameter I/O assignment the master station is a intelligent type and occupies 128 points from 0D00. Digital/analogue inputs are being read in the CPU and there are no error lights on either the master/remote stations. However digital output commands are not registered at the remote device station (LED lights on the module show which DO is active). Any help is greatly appreciated, I'm new to this and I've been hitting my head against a wall for a while on this one now. Cheers
  23. io-link integration

    I recently purchased a s7-1200 starter kit, a sm 1278 io-link modula and a io link linear sensor from turck. Un until now everything is installed and the sensor is cofigurated. Now the queastion is how do i get the value from the sensor into a tag in a datablock? As you can see in picture tia4 I started to fil in the device block but I could'nt figue everything out. (I am failry new to tia portal) With kind regards Dominique Hautekeete
  24. I am adding a remote device to an existing cc-link network. The master station is an A1SJ61BT11 and the CPU is A2USHCPU-S1. The CC-Link network currently has 20 remote I/O stations and I am adding a remote device. The A1SJ61BT11 has parameters written to its internal memory. In order to add my new remote device, I think I need to only change two parameters: First, I need to change parameter address H1 from 20 to 21 since my device will be the 21st. Second, I need to change station information parameter address H34 from 277 to 4373 to enter it as remote device. I looked at the example in IB(NA)-66721-J(0310)MEE, section 6.3. In the example, they are setting up the parameters for the first time. However, I am only changing two of the parameters. I followed the example except I only entered rungs to change the parameters for H1 and H34. My question: If I run the parameter setting program to only enter parameters for H1 and H34, will it affect the other parameters the original programmer entered? Could they go back to default? Any advice? Thanks in advance
  25. Here is a link to a blog post that will use Excel VBA to communicate to the Omron Host Link. It program NETComm.ocx for the serial driver. Here is pat of the blog... In Part 1, we used VB6 to communicate from the computer to the PLC. We will now use Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) to accomplish the same task. NETComm will be the serial driver and Excel will be the program that we will use. Using Excel we will have access to the Excel Object Model so we can utilize worksheets, ranges etc. Please refer to Part 1 (How to Implement the Omron PLC Host Link Protocol) for the details of the wiring of the serial port and protocol sequence. Continue to the blog post... Thought that I would share. Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you, Garry
