  1. Hi everyone, I just want to layout the structure of the question. I have a GOT2000 (GT27* series) that I have hooked up and communicating with an Allen-Bradley PLC. I have established connection and can pull out certain tags values from the PLC program in RSLogix 5000. While I can read the tag values, I cannot modify them (in certain conditions).  So let say that I have a User-Defined Structure named "Smoke_Detector" and here are it's available members: Smoke_Detector:   - ALARM (BOOL)   - ON_TIME (DINT) * DINT in Allen-Bradley but Signed Binary 32   - Battery_Life (REAL)  My question is that while I can read and display the tag and its members through the following:   - LAMP for Smoke_Detector.ALARM   - Numerical Display for both Smoke_Detector.ON_TIME and Smoke_Detector.Battery_Life But when I tried to modify the values via a Bit Switch or Numerical Input, it does not operate on them.  However, if these tags are members are just standalone tags, meaning that they are not within a UDT in RSLogix 5000, then I can operate/ modify them just fine.  Here are the things that I have tried: * Making sure that the permission are set to Read/ Write in RSLogix 5000 * Making sure that the tag definition in GT Designer 3 follows the structure where @[channel]:[Network #]:[Station #]::[Tag instance and member (e.g Smoke_detector is the instance and Alarm is member] Any possible insight and input are appreciate! 
  2. Hey guys,   I have worked on the FTView ME platform many of times.  I am now working on a FTView SE (Local Station) application, and I am having trouble connecting an Offline .ACD file to my program so that I can design.   If someone could help me with this it would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks in advance!

  4. Triconex work station

    Dear Friends I have new job in next week , this job required logic modified for Triconex work station , they have some problem with some logic loops , I worked before with Simatic S7 V5.5 & Rockwell automation RSlogix5000 & RSlogix500 , FTV & Wincc I needs your help to know more about Triconex work station & Tristation 1131 , did I can get the software  then I can get some training before starting my job  Waiting your kindly help   Best Regards Ali

    Dear All, I am very new to S7 PLC programming (S7 Simatic Manager v5.5) and I wanted to know how to back-up a system consisting of multiple PLC Stations (S7-1200, S7-300, etc). I am able to upload station to PG but that will save only per station. How about saving the whole system? I am not sure if i am using the right terminology. As you can see, I was given a zip file for the S7 project and it contains the whole system. I am trying to see how the commissioning engineer was able to do it (don't ask why I am not asking him instead). How can I then use this project file to download the program to the PLC/system once I decide to restore. I am at loss and have been searching for references over the internet. Uploading and downloading per station is no problem. I cannot seem to know how to do it on multiple stations system. I hope I have made some clear question or somehow you have managed to understand it.  TIA.
  6. Hi, I have a a few substations and I´d like to have a local SCADA in each of them. What is the best scada to use with reasonable price? Does anyone know if there is a solution without the need to have a PC for each substation? Thanx
  7. Hello, I am having troubles configuring my Data Station Plus to be able to read my Vacon VFD registers over a Profibus network. The network is configured from an Omron PLC. I have communication but i do not know how to map the tags on Crimson to be able to read what the drives are doing. I am most likely thinking my offset on the tags that i have set are the main problem. Any input/ suggestion would be great thanks Specs on System: -Omron PLC CJ2M w/profibus PRM21 -Omron HMI NS-12 -3 Vacon NX VFD's -Data Station Plus w/profibus module
