  1. Walt Boyes reports that Dick Morley, the father of the PLC died on October 17th. Wikipedia has been updated and summarizes Dick's contribution to the automation world: "Richard (Dick) Morley (died October 17, 2017) was considered the "father" of the programmable logic controller (PLC) since he was involved with the production of the first PLC for General Motors, the Modicon, at Bedford and Associates in 1968. The Modicon brand of PLC is now owned by Schneider Electric. The PLC has been recognized as a significant advancement in the practice of automation, and has an important influence on manufacturing industry." An article gives some history of the process Dick went through in the early days

  3. Hi everyone, I'm a newbie in the ladder logic programming languages. For my thesis project I've to develop a scenario but I'm stuck with the creation of a socket connection from the Modicon M340 PLC to a server for transfer continuous data given from sensors or similar. Does anyone have a sample program that could have such a functionality so that I can change it based on my needs? Thanks in advice for any further reply!

  6. Hi all, I am working at a company that has a paint booth that is rather outdated. It has 10 robots in the booth and the safety circuit for each robot is controlled by a Modicon Nano TSX PLC. I have managed to successfully download the programs with the PL7-07 software (managed to do it on a laptop with window XP). We have some back up programs that were taken roughly 4 years ago and I would like to load them both up on the software and compare them. Is this function possible and if so how do I do it?   Thanks  Shane

  8. ASCII Code 8 Byte In Twido

    Hey Guys!!!! I'm trying to use ASCII 8 bites in TWIDO PLC and on MOD BUS TCPIP it connected to WinCC , where I'm trying to read the ASCII in as a STRING char that to in 8bits. The problem I'm facing is that it is getting swapped like if I'm writing VA in PLC then on SCADA it is showing AV. In WinCC there is no setting for word swapping. Therefore Kindly help me for this in plc end
  9. Hi guys, I have tried almost everything and ran out of option on how can I successfully connect modicon m34020 processor using mini USB with unity pro, I am working in Windows 10 and selected everything possibly correct I can, like setting address to USB, and "SYS" in Set parameters, I have USBplc driver installed and it shows, "disconnected" and local and remote id emptly fields. In my device manager, I can see a question mark on the processor driver "BMX CPU" and when I try to update/upgrade/fix it it simply goes to nothing. While the Unity Pro shows the error "this isn't the right address or the plc is too busy or off". Please advise, if i am missing something. thanks in advance.
  10. Hello,I am trying to use ProWORX NXT to view the logic of my Modicon Quantum 534 controller online. When I try to go online with it, it always times out. I am using a TCP/IP connection and my PC is in the same subnet as the controller in question. I can ping the controller's IP address just fine and when I use ProWORX NXT's Net Scan function, it recognizes that there is an Ethernet connection at that IP address but doesn't recognize it as a Modicon controller.Weirdly enough, my PC can connect to another Modicon controller of the same type and in the same subnet just fine.Can anyone help me with this issue?
  11. Hello, I got a new work job to design a cycle tester for a mechanism to make sure will work for at least 5000 cycles open - close. I never made a pls program I start researching few days ago and seams to be very complicate to make it. I have a TM221C16R PLC from Schneider. please help me with some instructions. the cycle tester will have a start pushbutton, stop pushbutton, door open switch, one air cylinder with solenoid to push and pull and a counter. Thank you, Romica
  12. I am having trouble loading the configuration into a Micro984-230. I lost an old M84-002 PLC. I have the program. I purchased a Micro994-230 replacement. I lost my cable, so I made a new one. The only software that I have still running is Updoc 4.30b. I tested out my cable and Updoc by connecting to a 984-381. Everything worked fine online and offline. The error I get during the configuration loading is communication error 13. I have no idea what that is. Perhaps I can't do configuration loading with Updoc. I have Modsoft Lite  working but I do not think that it works with this controller. It is for MIcro and Compact controllers. I may have modsoft and taylor kicking around but I do not know if they are installable or not. I hope I can find out if my config is improper, I have used the wrong controller setup file (used Micro984), or where iI can have the config loaded for me? I also do not know if this used controller is functioning correctly.

  16. Hello - we run a car wash that is controlled by a Modicon TSX Micro 3721001. It is indicating a CPU fault. I've attached a picture of the unit in place, with the LEDs lit. I have ordered a new base unit (2nd picture). I haven't tried it out yet, but it is tested working. I am hoping a base unit replacement will solve the problem, but wondering if it it possible the problem could be in the modules? I did not order those but now wondering if I should have... If the issue could be with the modules, is there a way to test which one it would be so I won't need to order all 4? If it coult be a module, I might order that now as I am in a rush to get back in service. Thanks for any guidance! Andy
  17. Hello, We have Modicon Momentum PLC and there is about 80 millions of Collision Errors (and growing cca 1.4 error per second) logged in Ethernet Statistics. In the manual they write only "This field should allways be 0". It is working for us though. We only have one problem that two machines on ADO 740 50 with ENT 110-01 stop simultaneously and irregularrly without any appearent reason. It is happening now for about 6 months, but I have calcluated that this collision errors accumulated over cca 2 years. My question is, what "Collision Errors" mean and could that by any chance make two particular machines on one ADO 740 50 module go off simultaneously?
  18. Hi all, I do not have any experience with Modicon. Can someone tell me which software i have to use go online with TSX-PSY2600? and is it free? or should i buy the software? Thanks

  20. My CPU 534 14B doesn't work. Run led flash 7 times. no possible MB+ connection, ERROR code meanings: 300 EXEC not loaded or 301 EXEC Checksum. It was working well then nothing can't even communicate with it. reset power without battery, download an other firmware (EXEC) 1.11 instead of 1.16, same problems. Someone can help on that case? I'm using NXT as programming software.
  21. Hello all, first post here, and thanks in advance for the help. I'm a fairly green SCADA and controls designer and although I worked fairly extensively with these systems in the past, I followed a sightly different career path for the last several years and haven't had my hands on a PLC that whole time. Started a new job and am rebuilding my knowledge with it. Fortunately my company afforded me a PLC to take home and mess around with for this purpose. I feel pretty dumb as I am struggling to even connect with it, haha. Here are the stats: Backplane: TSXRKY4EX (end caps are securely in place) Power supply: TSX PSY2600 Processor: TSX P57 6634 First I attempted to connect via ethernet, using the IP address sticky-noted to the front of the processor: No luck, "PLC address is incorrect, or PLC is busy, yadda yadda". As I understand, the default IP address can be converted from the MAC address. The last two MAC address numbers were: CF.87, which gave me the address Same result with this. I tried pinging both address from the command console and had no luck there either. I happened to have a USB to unitelway adapter (Telemecanique brand) and attempted using that as well, Address:SYS.. Media:Unitelway. No luck, same answer. After a lot of frustration and hours spent scouring the internet for answers, I took the nuclear option and pulled the battery (while unplugged) and replaced after 30 or so seconds. I was assuming this would clear the memory and reset the IP to default (, afterwhich I could reconfigure and start fresh. Unity still can't connect nor can I ping it. It should be noted that I am using Unity Pro XL Version 8.0, on a VMware image. I did attempt pinging from both the VM and the host machine, both can ping other known devices so connection by the VM through the host shouldn't be the problem. Neither the VM or the host recieved a ping reply from the PLC. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. I feel I have exhausted all options and I hope I didn't shoot myself in the foot by pulling the battery. As far as whatever program was on it before is irrelevant, the PLC was given to me to do with whatever I wish, so memory loss wasn't a danger. I just need to connect to it. Thanks!!
