  1. SLC 505 Message to TCP Port

    Hello I have a SLC5/05 and a Microscan MV40 smart camera which receives commands to a TCP port. Is there a way the LSC 5/05 can send a command to the camera using the MSG instruction or any other instruction? I would appreciate any advice 
  2. Display page

    Hello! I am wondering if I can display an another page by clicking on an ActivX Option Button. I know that a page can be displayed only on left button click, but I need to make some connection between this and an ActivX Button. Can you help me with some ideas, please?!:) Thanks!
  3. Hello,  I am working on a project to connect a PLC (Micro820 by Allen Bradley) to a simple RS-232 alphanumeric OLED display. I am not too familiar with structured text language, but I have worked with micro-controllers that use similar high-level languages (mostly C-based).  My question is: is it possible to use connected components workbench to program my Micro820 to output ASCII commands to an off-the-shelf RS-232 alphanumeric display? Are there libraries that make life easier to do this?  I welcome any recommendations to related reference material or command tutorials, thanks!
  4. Logo!8 sensor compatibility/display

    Hi there,  I am brand new to the world of PLCs. I'm working on a project and we will be using the LOGO! 8. We will be monitoring a tractor's ground speed, wheel speed, (wheel slip using those two), oil pressure, tachometer, EGT, and system voltage.  As I said, I'm brand new to all of these things. Any tips or advice to get started? Or things to avoid? Specifically when choosing sensors. Also, we were thinking of a tablet to display these measurements in real time. Any suggestions? I was thinking the Simatic HMI touchscreen may be a better option for compatibility. This will be on a competition tractor, though. From experience, how durable/rugged are these displays? It would mostly be subjected to dirt, vibrations, and quick jerks.  Any advice to help guide my Googling adventures would be greatly appreciated!  Thank you.
  5. 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.

  7. E1151 New Display Register

    Hi all, I wonder if anyone can help me. I have 4 test rigs setup with E1151 HMIs and FX3U PLCs (with two ADCs and one DAC).  They are running pretty well, and the HMI changes block fine when using Jump to Block, but when I try to get the PLC to change the HMI's block using the New Display Reg it becomes very temperamental. For automatic testing I want the PLC to prompt the HMI to change block, so I set it up with a PLC register, then set the HMI to use this register for the New display reg.  When I turn the PLC and HMI on I can run through the test, and at the end it changes screen perfectly.  However if I run the test again the HMI appears to "forget" to change screen.  I have checked the new display register and It lists the correct screen, but the HMI doesn't change. So far I have tried adding "SCRR" too the command list to use short recipe names (saw this on a previous post), and tried reducing the amount to data transfer between the HMI and PLC to see if it was a latency issue, but neither have worked. Has anyone else witnessed problems like this?

    I am Looking to buy a ALLEN-BRADLEY 2706-D21J2 SER. C OPERATOR INTERFACE REV. A  (A 4 Roll Display,, I have every thing to operate the DL-20 2 Roll Display. Will what I use to control the DL-20 also work on the 2706-D21J2 SER. C 4 Roll ?? Thanks Whit
  9. Hello.   I have a question regarding NB series display. The comunication is made through RS232 / RS485 comunication. I would like to use NB display as MODBUS MASTER and SLAVE aplication. - Display would work as MADBUS-MOSTER to talk to plc controllers. (Working through COM2 - RS485) - Secondly, Display would work as MODBUS-SLAVE to talk with (SCADA). (Working – Registers LW, LB))   What I have trouble with, is: - I would like to change variable in the PLC - for example : Regime_PUMP (address: 0x0001). - Regime_PUMP variable should be settable from all three devices PLC <-> DISPLAY <-> SCADA So: - If I change Regime_PUMP through PLC it should refresh also on DISPLAY and SCADA. - If I change Regime_PUMP through DISPLAY it should refresh also on PLC and SCADA. - If I change Regime_PUMP through SCADA it should refresh also on DISPLAY and PLC.   Does anybody have an example for NB series of display to do this?   Best regards.
  10. I am running a very large step based program on an NJ plc.  I have several status and alarm messages that I need to display on the screen during the auto cycle.  Right now I have set up unions in the PLC for the faults... but this is a very large program with a lot of possible faults.  I'm up to 9 16-bit array unions already.  It is just getting really cumbersome.   I would like to just write an INT to a data area for each fault and status message.  That way I can assign each step a 5 values to be used for faults and messages (ie: step one can use numbers 1-5, step 2 can use 6-10, etc) .  Then I want to have the NS display a message from the string table based on the value in the data area.  Is this possible?
  11. I am having issues trying to send an email using the message instruction and the ENBT module. Attached are snippets of my configuration of my message instruction and the error code that i am getting. I had IT look into it on their side and i shouldn't have any network switch configurations that is blocking the successful delivery of the message. Anyone have any ideas what could be the issue? Thanks!
  12. I am working on project which is using Micrologix 1400 and AB Panelview. I am using FactoryTalk View Studio to build the HMI. The PLC needs to know which screen is displayed on HMI so some additional functionality can be activated. How would this be done? I was looking where could I write screen number to N7 location in the PLC or set a bit in B3 area but could not find anything. Thanks for your help.
  13. GE iFIX iClient - Mutiple Display

    We are getting a new HMI system that will be running on GE iFIX and iClients.  The HMI is designed for a single monitor (1920x1080) and this will be displayed on a system that can support duel monitors.  We would like to use the second monitor for other windows based applications but I have been told this is not possible on an iClient system.  I have no knowledge of iFix and its HMI programing but this does not seam reasonable.  Can anyone provide any input on this? We mainly would like to use the second monitor to display security and video information for the plant that we already have a windows based application built.   I really do not want to have an additional system just , for this considering we already have a primary and secondary iClient workstations setup. Thanks in advance for any assistance and information.
  14. hi all, I have CPU 315 - 2 DP. I can't download program from S7 manager to CPU. I have message Help on Message 33:17075 Description: All stations on this subnet must have the same value for the transmission rate. The interrupt may not be assigned for other hardware components. The MPI addresses in the network must be unique, meaning each address may only be assigned once. The local Station address must also not be greater than the highest station address in the programmable controller. Remedy: Call the program "Setting the PG/PC Interface" in the Control Panel. Under "Properties" set the transmission rate used in the network and adjust the local node address to match your network. Set a station address for your programming device/PC which is not higher than the highest station address in the network. Shorten your HSA address to match the PROFIBUS addresses of the slaves used. i put all the interface setting PC/PG on default but i've the same message. what i must do ? please some help.
  15. Hello! I have a problem with Allen-Bradley High Speed Counter card 1734-VHSC24/C. I need to make changes to the configuration parameter .OnValue1 (DINT) during the system is running. Now, for changing the parameter value, I need to switch off the module and this can not be done during the line is running. I think that maybe this can be done using the explicit messaging. I could not find information for this from internet, so now I ask you to help me with this item. If anyone have experience or knowledge of this, please help me. I do no have experience using explicit messaging. My configuration: Studio 5000 Logix Designer V24.00, 1756-L71S V24.11, Ethernet/IP, 1734AENTR, 1734-VHSC24/C countermodule.
  16. Hello. I'm having another issue regarding NT2S Display. Again I'm trying to convert my old project I made in NT2-ST software to NTXS software. I'm now having problems with: how to automatic go to screen1, if user doesn’t press any key for let's say 2 minutes? In old SW I have constantly checking DM00000 (screen trigger register) in PLC. If screen reg didn't change for 2 minutes I have write 1 to DM00000 (screen trigger register). With new software you cannot write to screen register directly. Or am I wrong? Did anyone do this function using NTXS software? Best regards.
