  1. stepper motor position control

    Hello, I need to have a cx-programmer code which I can control my linear actuator position by setting 3 positions with timer, I am using a CP1L pro'skit
  2. Sample blocks for S7 1200 plc's

    Hi experts, please share the sample blocks for the EDITABLE TIMER block it should be editable from HMI(Siemens). And also motor run hour block. Actually i am having all blocks in tia v12 version and sadly i dont have the old software to convert it again. So please share the blocks that it shoud be work in TIA V14 for s7 1200 plc's. Please note that the blocks should use add instructions to calculate the time because i don't have much memory.
  3. I can debug my plc app with simulator. I created some function block, and inside functionblock I can inspect in and out parameters, as well as local variables. But in/out parameters values are not shown. Any solution? Im using Sysmac Studio 1.29.2 and selected a NX PLC in my project.
  4. Stepper Motor Control

    can anybody Know how to control stepper motor using PLC
  5. Function Block addressing

    Hello all.  I have a program which has 8 function blocks. I recently added extra functionality to one of the programs (not the function blocks). I added the new variables to the global symbols table and added the new code, but when I compiled the new code, the variable addresses in three of the function blocks had changed. This is a problem, because we use memory cassettes to download new versions of code, so when the new version is downloaded to a machine in some far flung part of the world, these variables will be overwritten (they are hours run variable, so are important for servicing purposes).   My understanding is that CX assign's variable addresses in Function Blocks and we have no control over this. Bit if I only added variables to the Global symbol table, why are the FB addresses affected??   Any input appreciated. 
  6. Hi all. I have a Kinetix 350 and an AB TLY servo motor. I'm using the drive's STO function. AC power is supplied into the drive, passing through an "M1" contactor. It makes sense to m e to keep that contactor open, preventing AC power to the drive, until the drive is fully awake.  Is that what you guys do? Someone suggested to me in another forum ( http://www.plctalk.net/qanda/showthread.php?t=121021&highlight=drive+awake ) that there is no reason not to supply power to the drive right away because the STO function is inhibiting power to the motor anyway. 
  7. Hi All, I have an AB servo TLY-A110T and 2097-V31PR0-LM Kinetix 350 drive. I thought that it was fully configured and ready for tuning, but when I issue a MSO it immediately starts to spin the shaft (no load yet). This lasts about a second until a Physical Axis Fault, Excessive Velocity Error occurs. I've double and triple checked the feedback and power wiring, and everything looks right. Is there anything else I can check? What can I do to trouble shoot this if I can't even give an MSO? Any insight is greatly appreciated.
  8. Bonjour, Hello, I use a l33erm automaton and a Kinetix servo motor . This servo motor drives an engine with a chain moving in steps of 100 millimetres (there are 15 steps on the chain ) At each top of a cell this motor advances by 100 millimetre. in reality it advances from about 0 to about 100. Sometimes it is 100,002 times to 99,997 (this is important further) and when I give it a top it goes back to about 100 (100,003 times to 99,996) And so on and so forth up to no problem, I use a MAM with an absolute type of movement. It works.     However, this does not work any more after a rearmament following an emergency shutdown. if it is a 100,002 no problem at the next top the chain advances one step But when the engine is shut down at 99,997 and I give it the order to go to 100 it advances only by 0,003.  This only happens after an emergency stop (or door opening). Thank you for the help you can give me excuse my English this is a machine translation Un séjour sans faille
  9. Pointer Device memory

    To those who don't know the GX Works2 compiler treats any function block referenced used in your code as a place to copy the entire set of code data into your program. Function block calls are not handled like pointers even though the should be. [You'll consume all your pointer space by thinking function blocks are great.]
  10. Hey, I recently started trying my hand at creating function blocks. At the moment I'm trying to create a PID function block, however I keep getting this error: "ERROR: Variable does not have enough size." No idea why it does this. Can anyone help?  
  11. Omron Function Block variables

    Hello all.  I posted earlier in the week regarding downloading new code to an Omron PLC, but I think the question was a bit vague. As a follow up, and hopefully to clarify, I have the following query. I have created an upgraded program which will be downloaded by field techs using memory cassettes. The revised area of code is essentially a Function Block which amends service lamp behaviour, and in creating it, I have amended the existing function block and added new Internal variables. Is there any way I can ensure that the new variables don''t over write or move the existing  variables in the PLC, because this is what is happening when I download it.    HELP!!!!!!!!!
  12. Is there a way to monitor the Temperature of a Servo Motor on Allen Bradley Servo motors... MPL? PLC: CompactLogix 1769-L30ERM Drive: Kinetix 6500   Motors: MPL-B310P-MJ72AA, and  MPL-B560F-MJ72AA I would like to be able to monitor the temperature, and flash a warning screen on the HMI if the Motor gets too hot, or perhaps shut down the operation before the Motor overload trips. The drive and PLC are connected through Ethernet IP What I don’t know is if that Motor heatsink temperature information is available to the PLC.
  13. Dear Friends, I am doing a pick and place project using stepper motor.programmed movement by PLS2 command and motion are running fine.I want to program origin for the stepper axis.Please help. i don't know how to origin with a home sensor input.I am using CP1E PLC and stepper driver DM860.
  14. Average motor speed

    Hi Guys!   There is a task. I have a motor, and I can monitoring the actual speed. The question is how can I to determine the average speed, if I know just the actual speed. If the speed is zero, it must be ignored. So I have to measure when the motor moves. Anybody have any idea? How can I solve this problem. RSLogix 5000.  Thank you.  
  15. So I did this simple Function Block, pretty simple, and yet it keeps giving me this error, after a bunch of failed combinations the error persists, without telling me whats wrong. And therefore won't even allow me to download the program to the PLC (CJ2M CPU31) or even simulate.   I heard it's a simple thing to fix but I really dont know how to, since I'm quite new to this. Here's the function block  itself in the picture and the programming inside it, although since it gives me no errors, i don't think that would be the problem
  16. Block Compare Instruction

    Is there a Block Compare Instruction like the one in Omron PLC for Mitsubishi PLC? If the Omron PLC is BCMP (68), then what is the name of the instruction on the Mitsubishi PLC? I tried to use BKCMP in the Mitsubishi PLC, but the way it works is not the same as the one in Omron PLC
  17. Hello. How can I get bit addressing of defined variable in function block? For example: - I define variable type DUINT with name Double_VarI_INT. - I want to get or set one bit out of it (its double word). - If I use Double_VarI_INT.0 I got error. Best regards.
  18. I have 200W - 200VAC : Omron R88D-1SN02H ECT Servodrive and Omron R88M-1M20030T BS2 Servomotor I wish to make myself the connection between Drive and Motor , with self made cables. Connectors ( JAE ) - Japan Aviation Electronics JN6FR02SM1 - 2 pins - brake cable in motor side JN6FR07SM1 - 7 pins - encoder cable in motor side JN6FS05SJ2 - 5 pins - power cable in motor side Molex 55100-0670 - 6 pins - encoder cable connector in drive side - ( IEEE 1394 - Firewire 400 ) https://assets.omron.eu/downloads/manual/en/i823_1s-series_setup_manual_en.pdf http://multimedia.3m.com/mws/media/569007O/3mtm-i-o-interconnect-system-2-0-mm-for-ieee-1394-ts2296.pdf http://www.jae.com/z-en/pdf/MB-0161-1E_JN6.pdf https://industrial.omron.mx/es/media/I586-E1-02_1S-Series_EtherCAT_UsersManual_tcm851-112757.pdf ======================================== How can i know which it's pin #1 from each socket from Drive and Servomotor ? Atention !!! I'm not talking about pin numerotation from connectors which i connect to drive or motor . I wish to know the pin #1 from Drive CN2 socket and from Motor sockets ( power , brake and encoder ) http://www.jae.com/z-en/pdf/MB-0161-1E_JN6.pdf In MB-0161-1E_JN6.pdf you can see the numerotation of pins from "Receptacle" . That means , the "Receptacle" it's that part what is in Omron Servomotor ? Or it's the part of JAE connectors , which it's inside of connector housing ? The question is , how can i be sure i don't make a mistake, and i know the right numerotation of Encoder socket of Omron Drive : CN2 and the right numerotation of Omron Servomotor ( brake , power and encoder cable ) I've found schematics about how to connect the Drive with Motor with power , brake and encoder cables , but i didn't find a pin numerotation of sockets ( drive side CN2 encoder socket and power , brake and encoder from motor side ) I didn't find nowhere the right numerotation of pins from CN2 socket of Drive and from Servomotor sockets ( i find it something from above JN6 series connectors from JAE connectors ) I wish to know where can i find the numerotation of pins from Omron R88D-1SN02H ECT Servodrive and Omron R88M-1M20030T BS2 Servomotor Specially , the Encoder cable numerotation from Drive side and Motor side . I've noticed in attached picture the numerotation from Drive , CN2 encoder socket ( IEEE 1394 - Firewire 400 ) . That's correct ? It's right numerotation ?              
  19. I have project where I need to measure motor current but I do not need to control the speed of the motor since it would always be running at full speed. Do I still need to use VFD to get feedback or is there cheaper way to measure the current?
  20. RC servo motor sg90

    I new to the Cx-programmer. I'm facing a problem where i need make the servo motor go to certain direction and stop at the direction until other signal is sensed. Is there any instruction which can be used to do the ladder diagram? is it using PWM instruction? Is my servo motor (sg90) suitable for PLC ? do i need motor driver for this servo motor? or i just have to connect to the PLC 5v ? Im using CJ1M CPU21 PLC module. Im doing a sorting system project that use the servo motor to slide the item to certain angle. 
  21. Hi, I'm working in so machine basic v1.5 and I'm wondering if it is possible to change the start time and stop time in a schedule block with a %MW. So is there a possibility to for example say %CH0.??? := %MW5 in an operation block? And is there a page where u can see al the possible codes. I already discovered that %TM0.P changes its preset but i don't find a list of al those possibility's.
  22. Hi All, I'm still quite new to Unity and Modicon PLCs. I have a PLC program running in simulation mode for development/test and I'd like to follow the logic inside a running block. I can't seem to just double click the function block while online to see it's 'inside' logic. Is there a way to inspect the inside of a running function block? How can I check and diagnose the logic a running function block? Thanks!
  23. I've been building a contraption with linear rails and stepper motors. It has an X, Y, and Z axis. I'm using Velocio PLCs to control the motors which seems to be work well so far. I understand these are not very common and my question are related to general motion control, not Velocio programming specifically. Since I'm new to PLCs, programming, and stepper motion I thought I'd ask for some input instead of trying to reinvent the wheel. I'm to the point in the build where I'll be adding emergency stop/limit switches and am wondering how to go about writing the program; if there's an "industry standard" way to go about it. I figure the PLC will check to see if any switch is active. If one is, drive the motor away from it till it's inactive and store the location. If one is not, drive the motor until a switch activates then back off a until it's inactive and store the location. Drive the motor to the other limit of the axis (the number of steps should be known) to activate the switch, back off and store location. Rinse and repeat for the other axes. Is my approach about right?
  24. I'm looking for some general information about different types of vibration/temperature sensors. What type, brand, model number, etc. will best fit my application.  Scenario: I want to monitor the vibration and temperature of multiple motors and gearboxes for a large overhead conveyor system. If an oil leak occurs and temperature increases, I want to see a temp. alert via a HMI. If a something mechanical fails, I want to see a vibration alert via a HMI.  I've looked into sensors that stick to the outside housing of the motors or gearboxes via a magnet. My concern is justifying the temperature readings. How accurate would a sensor that reads an "ambient" temperature be (compared to a thermocouple on the motor coil itself or some sort of probe)? Also, would the location of the magnet  on the motor or gearbox drastically affect the temp. or vib. readings? Has anyone had success with a similar setup? If so, what devices did you utilize? Are these systems truly beneficial?  I'm currently considering Banner's wireless products...
