  1. Dear colleagues, is it possible to operate two working Modbus units on one PLC (FX3u)? For example, one as serial Master with FX3U-485ADP-MB and another TCP Server with FX3u-ENET-p502?    
  2. Deploying An AdvancedHMI Project Here is our latest post on deploying an AdvancedHMI project on the industrial floor. Here are a few thing we cover: Hardware - Fanless Computer - Monitor - USP - uninterrruptable power supply Software - Turn Off windows update - Security - Set permissions - Limit internet use - AdvancedHMI - remove ControlBox, Miximize Screen Size, Topmost property Here is part of the post... Deploying an AdvancedHMI project on the industrial floor sounds like an easy task, but there are a few things that you should consider. The HMI (Human Machine Interface) user interface will run on a computer. The industrial environment is one in which temperature, dust, electrical noise, etc. are always present. This can also be combined with workers wanting to play with the new computer. We will look briefly at the hardware and software items that will make your install more reliable and user friendly in the field. Read the rest of the post... Let me know what you think.

  3. Hello there. I have connected wireless module (master) to Vijeo Citect 7.4 using RS-485 to USB converter. My slave modules are supplied power from gird/generator and the master module is supplies from a UPS.    I'm reading Modbus registers of slaves modules data via wireless master. Every time we have a power failure from grid, I get #BAD from all slave addresses. The generator kicks off within 30 sec. That is the slaves are off for 30 sec. Even after the slaves are powered on, SCADA does not poll data from it until I restart the SCADA.    My current MODBUS parameters are:   Inittype = 3, TimeOut = 3000, WatchTime = 10, Retry = 2. Could you please assist me on which parameters to change in .ini so that SCADA reads Modbus registers of slave for more than 30 sec.   I tried increasing TimeOut to 30000 but it couldn't solve the problem. I would appreciate if some one could help me out.   Thanak you in advance.

    This is a short bit of sample code using Socket Service function blocks to read and write data from / to a V680S RFID tag using the Modbus TCP (-ETN) version of the V680S.
  5. Here is a recent post that I would like to share. Using Visual Basic 2015 we will log three holding registers from the PLC along with time and date into a Microsoft Access Database. We will log every minute into the database with the information that we collect from the PLC via Modbus TCP (Ethernet). All code will be done and shown so you can implement this in your application with different parameters. The information collected in the database can then be distributed or analyzed in the future. Visual Basic 2015 will be used with the EasyModbusTCP client/server library for .net. We will communicate to an Automation Direct – Do-More PLC. Using the free simulation software of the PLC Designer Software, we will retrieve three values of the Modbus Holding Registers using Modbus TCP. Once we have this information out of the programmable logic controller it will be placed in a Microsoft Access (2010) Database. This will be done by using a SQL command to insert the data.

  6. Hi all,    Its the first time in this forum and need help about slc05/05 processor and modbus RS485. We need to link one slc05/05 with 5 power analysers and 3 vfd all with rs485 modbus rtu ports, as i now the slc05/05 have RS232 that suports Modbus, can we put an converter RS232 to RS485 and put slc05/05 to read write the power analyser's and vfd's. There are any sample / step by step tuturial with modbus and slc05/05 ?   Best regards, Jorge Cruz  
  7. CP1E MODBUS Maximum Slave

    Hello everyone, so I noticed in Omron's CP1E manual, there are no certain info on maximum number of Modbus Slaves that can be attached, however the PLC itself able to connect to slave number 1 - 247 I have read from common MODBUS specs, that 32 slaves are the limit for most MODBUS connections. However there are also statements that with proper design (1/8 transceivers) that we can extend number of connected slaves to 256. Anyone have experience or info about this with Omron PLC? Thanks in advance

  14. Hello, I am new to the connected components workbench software. I am working with an AB panelview component Hmi and would like to create numeric buttons to load integers into user variables in a schnieder LMD servo motor. The motor uses Modbus TCP to communicate. It appears that if I click on the numeric buttons properties there is a "Write Tag" of which you can use some default tags or create a new one. I am assuming that I need to create a new one with the motor's addressing but I'm not quite sure how to accomplish this. Any help would be much appreciated!!! Thanks, Steve

  16. FX3U-ENET and Modbus

    Hi There i have heard from our local mitsubishi dealer, that there is a Fx3U-ENET module which also supports Modbus TCP. so i ordered one, because i am planning to do a Project using a atv71 FU and a Codesys PLC, so the plan is, that these 3 Devices are able to communicate together over Modbus. has anyone done something similar before? what do i need to setup in FX-Configurator EN, and how can i send modbus commands through that module. i am using GX-Works 2 and have a Structured project. any help would be appreciated. thank you jason

  19. Hi, i am start a aplication whith modbus for a simple comunication(read/write), some analogic imputs and outputs, whith, AB Micrologix 1500 LSP (1 com port Rs232) and whith a Omron PLC CP1L-L + CIF01 (rs232). I using CP1L like a master, but i try a lot of time and no read/ Write happens, just the recognition of Node (1) and the error code 88, no mather whith Function code i use. I use Modscan32 whith Micrologix 1500 and works fine, com settings are right to, i try 38k, 19,2k, and now 9,2k None stop bit 1, setting on CP1L are in serial Gateway. If i take the cable the reponse memory go to zero, so the communication is happen, just dont in right way. Is possible to use, RS232 whith CP1L, for Modbus communication right ? I already see PCMR code for modbus, but is to complex, for my aplication. No ofense. Someone can help me?

  23. FX3U as Modbus slave

    Hi I want to use FX3U as Modbus slave. I am using 485-ADP MB and successfully communicated as slave device. Now my master is able to access all my registers. But I want my Master to access only D1000 to D1100 registers. How can I do this? Please help me out. Thank You Joshua
  24. Good day I have a scenario where I need to connect to Ethernet ST-lite units to an L-series PLC. With a Q-series you will use the Modbus card and create a Intellgent Function Module to do this and specify the header addressing for the unit. With the L-series, you have Modbus on the build-in Ethernet port, but how do I now setup and specify the addressing for the for the ST-lite unit? Please help...
  25. On Ethernet/Modbus-TCP, if a device is a Master, can it get polled by another Master? i.e. Can it act as a slave as well. Thanks, Arun
