  1. All, I am using Keyence CV-X422A vision controller for my application. It is interfaced with Siemens S7-1500 PLC on PROFINET. I am able to communicate with Vision controller through PLC logic command and status IOs. There is some communication issue in updating the o/p values from Camera Controller. I have tried with & w/o Handshake Mode with these settings. The camera display shows the reject but camera never turns ON the NG Status o/p. I tried different things told by Keyence Tech support but none of them worked.  He told me to have you enable the “Result ACK Flag” in the bit allocation area and send  a signal to it. Then trigger it again with a no good part and see if that fixes the issue. I tried setting the “Result ACK Flag” to 1 after I get the “Command Complete Flag” for the trigger signal that I sent. Sometimes this works but still it is not reliable. Do I need to send only a pulse to “Result ACK Flag”? Anyone here has ever faced similar issue?  Thanks for your help. AP
  2. Trying to change out an old flakey Keyence KV-24R processor with a current KV-24DR.  The Ladder Builder software I need to upload the program form the old PLC has to run on an XP computer.  I was finally able to install a trial version of the software (after waiting a couple weeks for for access to an XP computer from the company IT department). The software ran the first time, but I had to restart my computer.  After restarting my computer, when I try to run the Ladder Builder software, I get "Illegal initialization data" and the software shuts down.  I have reinstalled the software a few times already.  I have left a message for Keyence, but they don't support their own products in America (they are sending my question to Japan.  Anybody have any ideas?   Sean
  3. NB7W System Error

    I’m programming a OMRON NB7W-TW01B with NBDesigner and after I download to the HMI updates I made to the program, when the HMI initializes it shows “[0] System Error” for a while and then it disappears, not showing again until the next reboot.   The manual only says it is an HMI internal error and nothing more, leaving me clueless about what I can do to fix this issue… I already have updated the kernel and rootfs of the HMI, nothing changed.   What do you guys think the issue is, what should I check to try to fix this problem?   Thank you very much for the help.
  4. Hello All,   I really need help with a full version software of DM value editor for Keyence PLC. All the ones I have found dont seem to work or might be virus.... All help will be really appriciated! Thanks
  5. Hello, I am currently working on programming my first sortation system.  Attached is a blue print of the in feed conveyors and their loadout lines.  As boxes merge together they will be scanned by the barcode scanner.  From there we will be told which lane each box must go down, from the WCS.   My question is, without encoders, what would be the best way to control this system? Counting the packages as they pass through the photoeye? Or setting timers?   Thanks, James Sorting Conveyor Layout.pdf

  8. Choosing the right OMRON PLC - Vacuum System

    Hi All, I'm hoping someone can help me. We're currently in the very early stages of re-designing how our vacuum system works. Currently we have 6 vacuum pumps supplying around 8 different packaging machines which we currently have to turn on and off manually depending on the demand on the machines. The challenge is to design and implement a part or fully automated system to control the current vacuum pumps - The key requirements are Supply must equal demand for the vacuum pumps - so they are only used when neededAutomatic switch-off when not in useCycling the use of the vacuum pumps so as not to overuse oneAbility to take a pump out of the loop for service/breakdownsManual override/shut-offScope for expansionUser-friendly interface (possibly touch-screen/wireless)I am a complete novice when it comes to OMRON PLC work and would like some guidance on possibly similar projects or at least pointing in the right direction with which PLC to go for. Thanks for your time Jack
  9. Version 1.0.0


    This is an example (with code) on how to cycle user messages on the Keyence KV-D20 display. The code is written as a sub-routine that is easily incorporated into a Keyence KV series PLC. The code is proven to work - I've used it many, many times. A brief rung-by-rung commentary explains the basic operation of the code.

  11. Keyence KV-40dt Program Access

    I have a couple older Keyence KV-40dt that I need to modify the program on. The equipment designer is long gone, but I think the program is read protected. This is done using MEMSW $8000. Some of the programs are fairly complicated, so it is potentially worth some effort to get access.   I found this software program to backup the program: It is a demo version that allows downloading the program. However this demo version doesn't allow reloading that program. The company seems defunct and I can't find any valid contact info or a non demo version that allows reloading the program. In another post PLCutils mentions " Any person can read such "pseudo" protected program the same way as Ladder does it with 0x32, 0x00, command." However, I don't know how to write a program to the PLC.  The program downloads a .cod file. In a hex editor it looks all scrambled, but I was going to try to decipher how the MEMSW $8000 gets written and edit the hex. I need to be able to reload the .cod file for this to work. Does anyone have any ideas? I also saw that .cod files are read by the KV Incrediware software for dos. I don't know if this is the same .cod file format that I have, but I may try getting a copy of that.

  14. PCS7 with S7-410 for Dummies

    I just need to understand a little bit more about the PCS7 architecture, if someone could point me to a document or a video or something, or just give me a few sentences to break it down it would be greatly appreciated. The reason being, we have a quote that we are working on for a customer over seas and are being told to quote our equipment with an S7-410 PLC.  I am very unfamiliar with Siemens in general, but completely unfamiliar with the PCS7. Our equipment is typically if not almost always stand alone equipment that communicates discretely to the rest of the facility.  Our equipment is not part of a process line, but rather feeds the process line equipment what it needs to perform its operation. I have been led to believe that the S7-410 PLC must be part of a DCS, so it does not seem like the correct fit for our equipment.  I just want to confirm this and learn a little bit more so I can explain to our sales folks and ultimately the end user why it is the wrong option for us and our type of equipment.   Thank you!!!

  17. I would like to bring up a topic that I've been been bouncing around in my head for the past few months. I make a living as an industrial programmer, sequencing using PLCs, dealing with drives, networking, controlling heavy machinery. All the hardware we use are from established companies like Allen Bradly, Sick, Cognex, Delta, ABB, etc... big $$$, you pay for the software, pay for the hardware and pay for the support. It's not uncommon for a large control system to cost $50k+ (hardware only) By night I'm just your regular maker. Programming AVR series uC, ARM series, playing with various open source hardware Arduino, RPI, Teensy, 3D printers, designing PCBs, stepper motors... whatever I can get my hands on. Both worlds are the same... but completely different, and there is ZERO overlap. I'm interested in why other people think this is, I'm sure that makers don't get into the industrial stuff because the price point. I'm not going to pay 8k for a AB Logix rack... are you kidding me? but vice versa? is the lack of support really all that daunting? I find OS stuff to be way more powerful, understanding something from the bare metal is the most amazing feeling, and being able to modify it to your needs is even better. Digging into somethings source is without an argument the most flexible platform to build on, and knowing the board level schematic for a chuck of hardware opens up a world of opportunities... Then lies the ethical dilemma... If I was to profit off other people's work, does this make me a bad person? What if I push the changes back into the development (which frankly I have no problem doing) I would love to head other people's opinions...
  18. I need some help and advice communicating between an Omron PLC and a Keyence KV-5500. My system typically uses an Omron CJ2M-CPU34 which comes equipped with the built in Ethernet IP port.  My customer is insisting that we change the CPU in our system to a CJ2H-CPU66-EIP in order to communicate with the Keyence KV-5500.  They have not been able to detail why their communications require the CJ2H, they just say they will be using Ethernet TAG communication and for this they need us to change the CPU. Has anyone successfully established communicated between the Omron PLCs and the Keyence?  If so how did you do it and which CPU did you use?  Is there an .eds file available for the Keyence CPU? Please help!!! They will be visiting from halfway around the globe to test communications in January so I want to be prepared!
  19. I have camera Keyence connected via ethernet to the S7-1200. In the cameras can be set about 30 "tools". Each "tool" perform a different function in the image. In what way in the program code on S7-1200 I can read eg Tool number 10? For example, if tool 10 is the correct I want to to value 1 on some tag for eg camera_tool1. Thank you in advance for any help. Regards Mikołaj
  20. Hiya Guys, New here (first post!) - and I'm fairly new to Connected Components Workbench, so apologies for the mammoth post! I am currently developing a System using one Micro850 PLC and one PanelView C600 HMI. I am able to update the current HMI time by sending Unsigned-Integers to Global Connection Tags: System Clock – Hour ($SysClockHour);System Clock – Minute ($SysClockMinute);System Clock – Second ($SysClockSecond);However, if using the same “update time” more than once, this method does not work as the HMI is looking for a “change” in a Tag before an update occurs (Tag-specific). For example, we require to be able to receive a “synchronisation signal” on a digital-input on the PLC each day at 15:00:00. This will only work once as, even though the HMI’s current time updates every second, I will still be sending the values “15”, “0”, and “0” to the above Tags (which will therefore not force an update – as they haven’t changed). I cannot reset these Tags without updating the current Time – as any number “out of range” causes an error (incidentally the errors are shown on the HMI to occur on Tags “SysClockSecondTimed”, “SysClockMinuteTimed”, and “SysClockHour” – note the omission of the word “Timed” on the Hours error…). There appears to be no reference to these “Timed” Tags anywhere in CCW, and I have no idea why the “Hour” update errors on a different (the correct?!) Tag. It’s a pretty confusing problem and difficult to explain… it took me a while to get my head around it – and I can see what the code is doing! J I've looked for documentation on how these Global Connection Tags work, but I can't find anything. Everything I (think I) know so far is from extensive testing... so if anyone knows of any documentation, or has any suggestions as to how I can achieve the required result - that would be massively helpful! Thanks for taking the time to read all this! Cheers, Steve.

  22. PLC Integration by SCADA

    Hello Experts, Good day to you all. I just can’t figure how I will integrate five S7-300 PLC. CPU 315-2dp. (1.Blow moulding-> 2. filler-> 3. labeller-> 4. packer-> 5. Palletizer) I just want to get the speed of its machine, the output rate and the alarm, this is purely monitoring, archiving, no need to control anything here. I planning about SCADA system. I’m thinking if I could do the same way in my previous project, which I’ve done in profibus master/slave for two s7-300. But this time the five PLC’s already set the profibus as master to the danfoss drive, sew drives, ET200s and many more profibus slave. I plan to buy 1 PLC as master and I will set all as slave, but how since all the five existing PLC, its profibus already configured as master. Thank you very much. All your inputs is really appreciated.
  23. Hello all, I am experiencing an unusual (and what appears to be an unheard of) behavior in my CompactLogix L18ER controller. I am setting the date/time of the controller from my work station, however when I GSV WallClockTime, it is reporting 4 hours different. I have asked our local resources as well as done some forum and knowledgebase searching without result. Has anyone encountered this before? Attached is a screenshot of the controller time vs. the wall clock time. This isn't mission critical since it can be manually adjusted however I would like to understand what is taking place that would cause this behavior. Thanks!
  24. Need Logic

    Hi everyone, I want to develop a logic for security alert system. I have to generate an alarm at irregular time intervals. No one should know the time interval. PLC has to give a digital output at any time. How to create this logic? Regards Joshua
  25. Hi, I have a problem with my BC9020 and hope that someone can help me. I managed to set the IP adress of my PLC in the 10.2.5... add a root, run a program and make the PLC working for a while. I then tried another program, a new one... and now that I want to re-read the first program, Twincat System Manager doesn't allow me to enter in the "run mode" and stays in "config mode". It also has lost the IP address I set (10.2.5.....) and came back to the 172.16.22... (manufacturer settings) I cannot determine if the problem is in the PLC Control or In System Manager... This is my method to change the IP *** IP config *** 1) Reset the PLC First I place the end terminal next to the PLC. I set the DIP switches 1,6,7 to ON, power on the PLC and power off. I set the DIP switches 2,6,7 to ON, power on the PLC and power off. I set the DIP switches 1,2,6,7 to ON, power on the PLC and power off. 2) Set my PLC on the same AMS than my own IP (172.16.22...1.1) 3) In System Manager, add a new route 4) change the setting in I/O Configuration -> I/O Device -> Device 2(BX9000) -> clic on BX9000 define "set IP Address" to Manual define " IP Address" to 10.2.5...., the AMS change automatically. Press the configuration button and then Ctrl+F4 (run mode) This method worked but seems not to be the best... If you have any Ideas ? or questions? Thank you in advance Gregi
