  1. Hello,, I have motion controller A series A172SHCPUN,, I have written the program ladder into the CPU, but I can't write the motion program.. i dont have the program to open file the program motion and I want to ask if I have the software SW3RNC-GSVE, my os computer is window XP, Can it be installed? and is the cable transfer used the same as the ladder transfer program cable (SC09)?
  2. MITSUBISHI FX3UC

    HEY, I'm kinda working on my own label machine and i am stuck on deriving its speed. I have already set the interrupt and acceleration parameters. but the problem i am facing is that i can't understand the ddvit's output pulse and output frequency relation to speed. If you guys know something, please do help. thank you,
  3. Hello, I have an interesting problem that no one in our company can really answer for me.  We are using Drive Logix with a powerflex 700S phase 2 drive and controlling a machine that rotates 360 degrees, sits for a moment, then return back to zero degrees.  We are using the MAM instruction to tell the drive to run the motor to its desired degree.  The problem we seem to face, is when they change jobs, the weight changes and we have to adjust speeds in order to get the machine to rotate back up to 360 degrees.  Otherwise, the motor stops short.  It usually never faults or alarms, it just stops short.  For example, they might run it and it will stop at 240 degrees or 315 degrees rather than the 360.  My question is, why doesn't the drive continue to push the motor to 360 degrees?  Why wouldn't the drive fault out on something like over current?  It seems that it just stalls and stops.  Sometimes, the machine will be running great, but on occasion (1 or 2 times a shift), the machine will stop short again.  I am curious what causes this and how I might be able to fix this to force the drive to continue to try and get to that desired degree. Thank you for any help or input!
  4. hello everyone,,,, I want to running the motor in 100 rpm but how to setting electronic gear to control speed in servo motor HG-SR502,, does anyone know how?
  5. Pls help set up QD75P4N

    Good day sirs,  i am a newbie at this motion controller setting. I would kindly like to ask for an assistance from all of you. i copied all the necessary data that i have on this project. I installed the wiring correctly i am able to Jog the servo motor. But when i try to Jog the motor Using GXWorks 2 i wasn't able to do so because its not showing any movement on the Mr J4 and the motor it self. is there any settings that i should have change? thank you for the time if you will need any information i am willing to give it thank you   I have also attached the GXworks program and the servo conifiguration   Please help me thank you project 1.gxw Servo 1.mrc2
  6. FFL problem

    Hi Guys! I have a problem.  I have a leaser sensor, I already set the sampling frequency to 0,1 s. So 1 second I will get 10 data. I need to use the average of the datas. My problem is I dont know how can I solve that, after the 10. data every new data I have to  recount, the last 10 data's average. I think maybe I have to use the FFL instrucion or something like that. I need to solve this problem in ladder diagram. I use RS-logix 5000 software. Anyone can help me?  Unfortunatelly I havent the the software, so I cant show you what am I think.    Maybe the sliding window solution is the right, or is it not related to this? Im a bit confused.
  7. ZCP Instruction

    Hi group! I am struggling to figure out what I am doing with the Limit instruction (ZCP 088).  I want to turn on a permissive if the compared word is between 1 and 12.  Rockwell makes this so much easier!!! It looks like my "=" instruction is not correct but this is how they show it in the manual???????    
  8. Hi my problem may have a simple solution but i cant work it out. I need to use the Divide function but it wont let me use a decimal point in either Source A or Source B. Is there a way to use a decimal point in Logix 500 Math instructions? Im using an AB Micrologix 1400 PLC. Can you only use math instructions with whole numbers? is there a way around this? Thanks James

  10. From PM this morning

    Fairly new programmer doing first analog section in project at new job. Im using NCF motion with parameter for torque control to send the torque values  a+8 (leftmost word) and a+9 (right most word) to CX programmer. From there is where I get confused will I just simply be moving both cio 108 and 109 to to a D register?? or will I have to combine the a+8 and a+9 to make a Dword??? and then taking that value to HMI broken line graph. sorry again for creeping in your inbox but ive been looking online for 6 hours. would greatly appreciate any help
  11. Hi, I am trying to do a merge move on 1S Servo. The condition are as follows: Task: Move 2 in(absolute value) and then Move back to 1 in (absolute value). I have to do this move 10 times in a row.  The application is material leveling after dumping in the mold. The only question i have is if I use just MC_MoveAbsolute command, the only buffer mode for transition available is velocity. Is there a way i can do it with position. I dont want to stop when I can go from 1 to 2 and 2 to 1 again and again. Its time consuming. But rather a nice oscillation motion without stopping to mimic leveling. Can anybody please help me out with this problem.   Thanks
  12. Hi,  I'm new to TwinCAT 2 and i'm upgrading a long time design (hence the TwinCAT 2 reference), to read a more sensitive torque signal.  I'm using a Beckhoff CX1030 as my PLC Controller.  I needed to add 'homing' to my motor sequence and confirmed with Maxon, im using the function blocks correctly and in the correct sequence to establish my 'absolute zero'/'home' position.  The motor has an output to write to:  ControlWord, which tells the motor that the position it is sitting in is '0.'  My program compiles, it runs, it writes each function block, but it's not seeming to get back to the test run opMode, even though i tell it to and the function block performs the 'Write' function.  it's stuck at zero and not reading an analog input signal from my torque sensor.  so im getting an artificial torque reading through every test.   i think this is related to my tare motion.  I start the program, home the motor, get into profile velocity mode, tare my sensor, enter profile position mode, go back to position 0, then back to profile velocity mode, run a test, sample data, go back to 'home' or '0.'  I wonder 1st, is my variable not linked properly through the system manager?  2nd, i set a boolean variable to set the 4th bit to 1 in my control word write (setting the 4th bit high will set my current position to absolute zero), but did i not connect the program to the main sequence properly?  looking to read a valid signal again and see that my motor moves back to 'home' each time.  Do i not need to home the motor after the tare, since the tare nulls out the torque value after the tare? after this i need to program my sample period, instead of it being fixed, as it is currently written and then use my home position as my trigger to start sampling.... Beckhoff applications department is overloaded, currently and can't help and this is all beyond the knowledge of the general support line.  I've gotten fairly far, on my own, but of course, the project is under a time crunch.   Does anyone know twincat well enough to help guide me?
  13. RS logix 5000 motion control

    Hi Guys! I have a problem with Motion axis move (MAM) command. There is an Allen bradley servo motor what is working well. But I need to add a new program section, wich is in  a specified moment, the axis should move a certain distance. I think I need to use the mam command, just I dont know how can I configure the motion control part. I need to make a new tag ? or what ? I need to use a user define ? PLS help me.   
  14. Hi there, I am trying to create an Add=On Instruction to help me manage some alarm conditions in my application. My AOI has one Boolean output that is used for messaging on the HMI, but I'd like to also have another output (Boolean or integer) that would be attached to o global parameter so that if any alarm is activated, it will create a master alarm that can be used for machine control, and possibly messaging. The reason for this is that I may have numerous alarms and I'm trying to avoid having to create a series chain of all those alarms to turn on a master alarm. My thought was that if I can get any alarm to make a global parameter go true, then I don't have to manage other bits if I delete or add an alarm block. I'm having trouble coming up with a way to create that output that I can have load a TRUE value into a global parameter, though.  I was trying to use an integer so that I could just load a '1' into the variable if any alarm goes off, and a master reset would reset the value to zero. But I'm apparently not setting up the AOI parameters just right. Has anyone got a suggestion of how I can do this? I can share my block if that would help, it's nothing special, just a way for me to condense alarming features and this one seems to be a little tricky. Thanks for your suggestions!
  15. Looking for some servo application help. Software: I have GX works 2, GT Designer, and GX Developer.  Hardware: PLC L06CPU-P, GOT2000 HMI, MR-J4-350B servo amps, HG-JR35JK motors, LD77MS2 Pulser I have (2) AC servos that will simply move an aluminum frame backwards and forwards using a FESTO belt mover and I have a servo gear reducer 20:1. I have a "simple motion module"and all of this hardware and software, plenty of time, and would really like to finish this project off. But this is my first servo and my first hmi project. I have some experience with Omron, Mitsubishi, and Allen-Bradley plc's, and consider myself novice at best. Any sample programs or help getting me started would be greatly appreciated!  
  16. Hi Here's a question I'm about to ask Omron.. as soon as I can figure out who to ask.. It's complicated asking support.. their web email form doesn't make complex questions easy. Here's the question: Can the NJ CPU program a LinMot linear motor to make the "Random Sea"? The NJ has a mixed protocol.. Ethernet/IP and EtherCAT (CoE),  and claims to be a "Motion Controller".    I doubt Motion Control is available on it's Ethernet/IP line.. but the EtherCAT might be another story.   Certainly The Omron NJ is a Motion Controller for Omron NJ series drives.. However, how well does it work with LinMot? Here's the curve.  Imagine a LinMot Linear motor continuously moving, never really stopping, following a real-time, mathematically generated curve, moving positive then negative, at random frequencies and random amplitudes. Almost never repeating a motion sequence. looks something like this: Yet, after a while the motion history fully represents the spectral distribution of energy on the surface of the ocean. Spectrum analyzers can display it, and mathematics can define it..  I just have to make that sea in a model scale…    (Time scales by the square root of the scale factor) And keep the water in the tank: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQd6YzBWVvI The big question is: Can the Omron NJ get a LinMot Linear Motor to do this? … LinMot thinks YES.. but, isn’t sure. Yes there are ways to “connect" LinMot to The NJ.. EtherCAT (CoE), Ethernert/IP but… there is nothing in the LinMot drive that can create or store a predesigned Random Sea .. Only a Motion Controller, generating real time motion commands, by running  mathematical equations, "on the fly” can do that.   If the NJ is a true “Motion Controller”, and the LinMot C1250-DS-XC is implemented as an “axis” by Symac Studio, which it is…       Then, there may be hope. Closed loop, PID feedback remains with the LinMot drive, with special settings in LinMot Talk … Homing might have to be done with the NJ .. or by Digital I/O’s What do the Omron experts out there think?  Can this be done? Thanks much, Regards, Michael
  17. MR J3 A SERVO

    I want to run MR J3 A type 10 nos servo without using network, I'm to run servo using hardwired.please name motion controller to run 10 servo on hardwired..  
  18. hI.. I've asked for this in the past and, so far, haven't been very lucky.  Most of the projects I run into have 4 or 5 axis, lots of analog and sensor input.. or don't have the HMI part of the "Machine" I have a nice NJ 101-1000 with the NA 7 inch HMI.. along with a R88BD-KNA5L-ECT servo and a 50W  G5 motor.. type  R88M-K05030H-S2.  All On a nice rack with power supplies and some EtherCAT I/O  (It all functions .. even "MC Test Run" gets the motor to jog ..    But.. no way to "home" it.... The motor is in "rotary mode"   but... it's NOT got an Absolute encoder.. it's a incremental... sniff!     I just want it to stop on zero ..Or anywhere, and call it zero ... and make moves plus an' minus in degrees, that's all....  I assume I have to send it some signal (push button) while it's spinning that tells it it's in "Proximity" to home and it then it does something which makes it end up on zero.    I've homed a lot of linear motors (LinMot) an' they are very easy to work with.    But, Omron has 10 different homing modes .. and they aren't very well explained.  Well, they aren't explained at all in that 502 page user manual... you have to already know how to do it, in order to understand the explanation... Example:  Take the "Home Proximity Input Signal"  .. I can imagine what it might do, to help control a move to home.  I can even imagine what's making the signal .. and that somewhere there is a place where the homing parameters are set... like the "axis setting table"  .. but, it's not a Global Variable, or a Data Type .. I could imagine it gets into the system from the CN1 I/O connector? or some I/O somewhere? But.. I grow weary of imagining how this system actually works..  Building a simple working project, from a tutorial, or even downloading a simple working project (.smc2 file) and making the minor adjustments to fit my equipment ... would make all the difference in the world.   I've searched Omron's Libraries of .smc2 files.  Haven't found any yet that aren't on the level of "Top Gun" (a seriously complicated project for a 1-week training class) ... Oh there are several.. related to IAG object files .. but those Library files are not "working projects" intended to serve as a Tutorial.. they are limited projects, ready to be configured with IAG Object files, and "your" programming ... So that you can write the programs you need "faster"... which is nice... but, no help here. Somewhere out there.. is a nice simple .smc2 project file where you get to control a simple motor from the HMI  ..Preferably using an NJ CPU and a NA HMI .. home the motor.. jog the motor and input a few "go-to" positions... sigh!..   Like you would do in a One or Two Day class...   This kind of thing should be already be available in the Sysmac Library ... Thanks much for listening..  sorry about the rant.

  20. RSLogix Tag Name Confusion

    I am trying to learn the logic of a process at my new job. There are tag names that I can't make sense of because they end with _xva, _xvb, _xvu, _xvd, _xvo, _xvc, _zsm, _zsu, _zsc, _zso, _zsd and so on and so forth. I know they are associated with motion, but I need to make better sense of them. There are no descriptors. What do they mean and is there a resource available that I can reference?
  21. Can any one tell me how to use FOR instruction in RSlogics 5000 for looping my 36 step runs ...for example I have attached a program containing subroutine having 8 steps in it ...can any one help...? subroutine_loop.ACD Ladder of 36 steps.rar
  22. i need a example code for position control of MR-J3-20A with QD75D4 as intelligence module. and i want to see the parameter if possible  
  23. Just wondering if I need to set up two Motion Groups to specify the direction of travel along 1 AXIS? (Forward and Reverse) If not, how do I specify direction when using motion instructions (specifically MAM) with incremental motion. 
  24. Hello, I'm new to this forum and PLC world in general (especially to Mistubishi PLCs). I have a task in which I need to synchronize servomotor with another motor that runs conveyer (servomotor needs to stamp a label on a foil on a conveyer), in GX Works3. Servo motor is run by Simple Motion module. I need general tips on how to make pulses from encoder into something useful that can be used to send data to Simple Motion module. I need high speed counter to count pulses (never actually did this, I got this from manuals), how would I, for example, get speed out of it? Number n pulses, divide it with time it took to get to n pulses? How would I make Simple Motion to make servomotor on his Axis #1 to rotate at same speed?    
  25. I have a problem trying to scale a floating number coming from an HMI to a value to use on PID instructions.My problem is on the scaling instruction.Whenever i try to run on cx simulator it gives me an error My setup of the scale parameters are (using SCL3(487)) D616 #0000 D617 &350 D618 #FFFF D619 #FFFF D620 #0000 My ladder to use the float number is: *F(456) Value +10,0 D2120 FIX(450) D2120 D2062 SCL3(487) D2062 D616 D2072 The error that throws is 0x80F0 Thanks in advance for any help PS Also tried all Scaling instructions.I think my problem is the setup of parameters for scaling instructions
