  1. Ok guys, this is more a networking question involving a Stratix 5700 managed switch and 5 machines. The five machines all have set IP addresses from the OEM that cannot be changed. The manufacturer has them set in the program to maintain that IP ,so if it sees the IP change it will change it back. With that being said all Five machines have the exact same IP configuration and I cannot change it without contacting the manufacturer and getting them to change it or sell me the program so i can change it. both options will costs entirely too much in my opinion. With that being said my only goal is to read tags from the PLC on each machine. Is there anyway to set each port on that Stratix switch where i can communicate with each  machine individually without causing them to have IP address conflicts with the other machines that have the same IP address. I hope I explained my question well enough. Thank you in advance for any help on this issue.
  2. details: panelview (2711P-RDT15C) connected to "switch A" (ntron p/n: F-716TX) "processor A " (1756-L62) is connected to "switch A" "processor B" (1756-L73S) is connected to "switch B" (ntron p/n: F-716TX) "switch B" is connected to "switch A" I'm trying to use a single panelview to communicate to 2 separate PLC processors (separate chassis). When I go to add the shortcut in factory talk I find the "processor B". When I connect my laptop to  "switch A" I can see every thing in RSlinxs.  Any one experience this issue or know how to make this setup work? Maybe there's a switch setting that is not allowing RSlinxs enterprise in the PV to see both processors? 
  3. WRITE MULTIPLE REGISTER MODBUS

    Hallo my name is Danu, i have a CP1E wirh CP1W-CIF11 and connect to modbus RTU device, i have done with write single coil, write single register,  read single register and read multiple register. But i try to write multiple register,  the indicator of CP1W-CIF11 is off and if i check d memory its no data. I attached my cx programmer. Can you help me create write multiple register in cx programmer?  Thank you AD4402-modbus edit edit edit edit edit.cxp
  4. I need to add 3 encoders to my project. Currently my PLC Inputs are full. I am using high speed counters 0.00 and 0.001 to monitor a motor RPM with an encoder. I now wish to add 3 encoders to monitor position of (3) other linear axis controlled by stand alone (Zeta 6104) stepper drives. I have 3 open outputs on this PLC but all inputs are used. What are my hardware options to add additional encoders to allow me to track and correct the 3 additional axis. My first thought was to add another CP1L and use PLC1 0.00, 001 for ENC1, PLC1 0.002, 0.003 for ENC2, PLC2 0.00, 001 for ENC3, PLC2 0.002, 0.003 for ENC4. I thought this would allow me to use additional I/O from the second PLC but I am not sure if this is even possible. Is it possible to connect 2 PLCs this way? I will need additional I/O to send to these stepper drives to make the corrections. Do I need to add an expansion unit to the existing PLC and 2 additional high speed counter modules? The encoders are all Omron E6C2-CWZ6C. I would appreciate any advise on options to add these encoders and help point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance to any help.
  5. So, hello all. I'm new in Omron PLC. Using: CP1L-EM controll + CP1W-TS102 (x3) Problem: I have PT-100 sensor outside, so, cause i live in Russia, we have now -3 ... -5 under 0 =)  What i've done: I read the manual W462. Made some ladder (attached).  When i have temperature outside - i have value &2 or close to it, what means 0,2 degrees (i use Celsius) But when the temperature go down, i have &65535 and my PID go crazy.  So, i understand that it's 2 complement's but... HOW I CAN GET THE VALUE IN REAL??? (+2,0 or -5,3 and etc....)  Okay, go across the manual, what we see? (pic2)  We see the instruction for CP1L with PT-100 in range of -200...650. Ok, perfect, what i need... but... I HAVE NO SBB(051) INSTRUCTION IN MY CP1L!  So, guys, i need ur help with that. I need negaitve temperature in real with sign for using it in scaling, pid and HMI via NB-series panel.    Sincerely, p001p
  6. Hello everyone, I am new to omron stuff. I have been given a task to execute a timer with retentive values on power off. I want to retain timer value when plc turn on after shut down. Timer should be start from where it stops on power failure. How to do that could anyone help me out here?
  7. Can we interface the arduino sensors like HC-SR04 an ultrasonic sensor that gives a PWM as output.Can it be read on PLC by any means ? How we can read the Discrete values of Ultrasnonic sensor on PLC ? any one who knows Kindly guide I'm working on Fatek PLC FBs 24 MAR-AC 
  8. I have Omron CP1H PLC and using Ethernet Option board to communicate through Ethernet. When I connect PLC to 2 Computer it starts malfunctioning and values in register get fluctuate. while I connect single HMI it works fine. Kindly give solution if anyone know. 
  9. Hi all I am setting up a batch tank system, I have 1 pump which can pump to six different tanks(via pneumatic actuated valves). This is my first go with a HMI, usually I would use a multiple position switch. Is it possible to make a six position selector switch with a HMI? I am using a AB Panel-View 800, has anyone done this before? Any help would be appreciated.
  10. Hi, Is there any setup to manage alarms in one PLC from multiple CX-Supervisor runtimes running on different computers? If I get an alarm, it shows up on both runtimes. If I acknowledge from one runtime, I also want it to be gone from the list in the other runtimes.
  11. CP1E-N40 + CP1W-TS102

    Hi ! I have a question regarding the handling of the signal from the TS102 connected to my PLC.   I downloaded a .pdf  LINKED from "my omron", read it and put together a small program just to test the expansion unit and sensors. But I cant get any readings from the sensors and can't figure out why. I have never used a TS102 expansion unit before and would be glad if someone have an idea of what I'm doing wrong. Everything is brand new, so I'm quite sure I am the problem here..... If someone have an answer and maybe even an programming example to upload I would really appreciate it. Best Regards!  PT100 sensor test 3.cxp
  12. Hi everyone. I'm new at Mitsubishi Q series. I can make a connection between PC and PLC through ethernet and read/write from/to registers. When I try to connect second PC to PLC I can't do it and get error. How can I set Network parameters of QJ71E71 module to communicate multiple PCs to PLC? Thanks.
  13. ML1400 and C400 Resetting Values

    At work we have been having a slightly increasing number of instances where the Micrologix 1400 that is paired with a Panelview C400 resets values when we cycle the power. Originally we thought the solution was a bad battery in the ML1400. This was the case the first few times that it happened. However, we recently had one doing the same thing and when the program was loaded onto another PLC and HMI combo it had the same issue. So either the battery for both just happen to be bad, or there is something in the program that is forcing the values to automatically reset when the power is cycled. I cannot post the program on here but I can tell you that the tags that are being reset are only used in the PLC program once. There are six total that are being reset and they are the high and low range in an SCP function that is used to scale inputs. I will be testing the program myself in house on a bench setup, but I wanted to get this question out there as soon as possible in case it is not an obvious problem. Has anyone seen this before? Any suggestions? If I come up with an answer I will post it. Thanks.
  14. C40K

    Hi Can anyone help with changing timer values in a C40K using syswin and a host link3G2C7-LK201_EV1. I have tried clicking Editors, Data display editor and then T/C VAL. This then loads all the values into the display window. Double click the required Timer and a new window opens up with the value. Changing that value and then clicking ok and then writing the value to the C40K. This does not appear to change the value because if I then read the values back I still have the original value and not the one I changed it to. Hope this makes sense. I assume that it should be possible to change the values using this method. I can change the values using the hand held console
  15. Addition of more than 2 values

    I'm new to the Allen Bradley software and I'm trying to add 3 values together. I have found the addition block but it only allows for 2 values. Is there a way to extend the block or do I need to use the block twice? Thanks for your help
  16. FactoryTalk ME Parameters

    Hello all, we have many large projects with multiple screens and are using popups quite frequently. As a result, our parameter file list becomes quite long. I have excel sheets to import my alarm table, and my local HMI tags, but have found no simple way to create/import multiple parameter files. Has anyone found a way? AB tells me that I can use Notepad to create 1 file at a time and import it that way....where is the time savings in that? As an example, I will probably end up with well over 450 parameter files by the end of this project.....hand entering each one....carpal tunnel syndrome here I come Thank you PS..if anyone wants the alarm table import tool msg me.
