  1. Has anyone connected a Swegon ventilation unit to QJ71MB91. At Swegon, Read Holding Registers is 03 and in GX 0500. 03 is not in GX. I can't make it work. modbuscomp.pdf
  2. Hi guys! I need some help, recently was assined to me make a program with a PANELVIEW PLUS 6 600, until here all ok , but! I need to make a devicenet comunication, and use factorytalk 5.1... here start my problems, i find a EDS file to the factory falk, but, in the rockweell site, the information about compatibilty is "may be compatible"... I need to make in the factorytal 5.1 because de cliente system is based in this version of the software. Someone already had a similar problem??? if so, can help me?   thank's, and sorry about any mistakes in my writing.    
  3. Hi,  I have a problem with modbus communication. I set everything as shown in the pictures and I get a error 04. What is wrong ? program.bmp ustawienia.bmp

    Please let me know if it is allowed to sell PLC hardware on your forum. I accumulated lots of Omron hardware  that I want to get rid off. Here is the list, I have several of each type, asking $12 each plus shipping. All in working condition.  Base Unit C200HW-BI051 Base Unit C200HW-BC101 16 Point DC Input Module C200H-ID212 16 Point Digital Output Module 24VDC C200H-OD212 Power Supply Module C200-PA204    
  5. RJ71C24

    Hi, I want to set communication between ABB CI853 Modbus Master module and Mitsubishi RJ71C24 module. I tried with predefined protocol (you need to set slave address, but ABB is master), also with non-procedural (with G_Output function block), but without success. I tried connect ABB with QJ71MB91, and it worked because you can then set slave address and a station number, and this can't be set with RJ71C24??? If someone had a similar problem, I'll be grateful for sharing a solution. Best regards
  6. Hi, i am currently looking for a software that can open .gop-projects so i can look in the code and upgrade some panels at my current customers place. This software and GOP2000 are ancient and have not had any reply from ABB for several days about this. The GOPs here is starting to fail and we only got 1 spare that are in service almost 24/7.  
  7. Hi everyone! I have a question to all of you guys - do you ever use any software or online tools to manage your automation/electrical engineering projects? I have worked in a number of companies and have seen various scenarios, from using excel tables to run multi-million dollar projects to using proprietary SW for every little tiny project. Unfortunately I do not have experience working for any major big integrator and am very curious how projects are managed at this level (and if every engineer likes the way it is handled).  Additional question - does anyone have ever used a software to automatically generate the PLC code? I know some companies develop products to generate the "skeleton" of PLC program and I think it is a great thing to have.
  8. Hello, I have a .PBW file in an obsolete PanelView that I need to troubleshoot, but I can't open it.  Called AB TechConnect for support, but tech said it was too archaic and he, essentially, needed to start with a Windows98 machine and PanelBuilder 32 to even begin.  FactoryTalk doesn't know what to do with it.  File is attached.  Any suggestions/assistance is much appreciated ABWWTP.PBW
  9. I need some advice how to tune PID properly. The PID is only PI type (two mode) and its overshooting frequently. Assuming I need to tune P with starting incrementing by very small steps till PID oscillates.  Once the P is established then will be tuning I , again with small increments till PV follows SP.  So this is my assumption below but would like someone to comment on it as I haven’t had to do it before , been learning PLC for 4 months now.  Do I need to start a machine and then start tuning PID or can this be done in more friendly way , offline ?
  10. Control Panel Drawings

    Gentlemen and Ladies,                             This post might come off as generally lazy but this is purely in the interest of saving time. Our company has been building control panels for quite some time. I have been doing the design for about 10 years or so. We typically build Allen Bradley type control panels. Our main customers are water/wastewater so they are typically Compactlogix with basic IO. (AI, AO, DI, DO) modules. Recently i've been using the IO Wiring System modules. These save an incredible amount of time. However, they are quite big and require a decent amount of space. Our smallest control panel size is usually 36x36 and that is pretty tight. My question to all is, does anyone have a set of control panel drawings for an Allen Bradley compact logix system without these wiring modules? I am looking to create a smaller control panel, and I just haven't had much time lately to sit down and do the design. This is indeed a shortcut, but time has been limited on my end as of late. I apologize if this is out of line.   Thank you,  
  11. pilz pss 3066

    i have pilz plc (pss 3066 saftey controller). i tried to search for the software of this plc but i don't find any info. about this plc because it is old. so please can anyone give me software program of this plc to connect from my pc ?and any manual about this plc ? thank you in advance
  12. Greetings, I'd like to know how I could configure 2 HMI Kinco with reference MT4434T. I have a PLC with modbus485, a PC with USB-RS485 conversor and 2 HMI Kinco. The PLC have 1 on modbus direction, PLC have 1 and I guess that HMIs  would be 3 and 4. When I work with PC +  PLC  + 1 HMI Kinco, everything its ok. When I tried to connect other Kinco HMI, the connection between all devices stuck. I'm tried many combinations on modbus configuration, station number but I cannot make the modbus net works. Thanks.
  13. I am trying to program an analogue output on a Siemens S7-1500 unit from a 4-20ma sourced analogue input scaled over 0-250 degrees. The analogue input will have an adjustable setting in the software for when the alarm status should occur and at this point I want the analogue alarm output to start to process at 4ma, at 5 degrees above the initial set point I want the analogue output value to be 20ma I have no idea how to do this so any help from people is greatly appreciated and advice on which analogue output card to use would be helpful.  
  14. Hello people, i need some help. I'm Trying to create a simple program that stores some input's such as Temperature,  Production and Velocity (amongst others) in a machine , so that later i can send them to labVIEW via MODBUS RTU, the problem is i can't send anyregister i want, there was an old program we saved from the PLC that does store them, but uses the registers 199, 519 and 999 (the program reads 50 registers and 20 registers respectively from each register. I then tried modyfing the old program due to my problem to communicate the new one, and out even modyfing the registers won't work,  i'm i missing something?, does the HE-XE102 Horner PLC have a specified number of registers that can be read or sent via MODBUS. Appreciate any answer you guys could give me, Thanks for your attention.

  21. Stepper Motor Control

    can anybody Know how to control stepper motor using PLC
  22. Hi all I have a project where i am building a bread softness tester.  To do this i am using a smc electric actuator and an A&D scale. The electric actuator will push down on a slice onto an A&D scale.  A micro830 plc is then reading the data from the scale and storing the real variable in an array 80values long.  I would like to display on the hmi (panelview800) the peak/maximum value in the array. I am struggling on how to do this though and have not found much information online. any help would be much appreciated Thanks in advance Trevor
  23. GX Works 3 - PID control

    Hi, I am using PID function (PID operation instruction) from GX Works 3 library but it doesn't work. I set all necessary parameters (sampling time, direction and upper/lower limit values + KP, TI). My input PID_Par is array of 25 points (in manual is written: "*1When auto tuning is not used, the same number of points are occupied as when the step response method is used."). For example, in GX Works 2, PID function works ok. Did someone have similar problem? Does someone have mitsubishi library (GW Works 3) with PID function that works correctly?   Regards Luka  
  24. Anybus And 1768 L43C PLC

  25. Hello,I am sizing a feeder circuit for a panel according to UL 508A and came into a question:My input current is of 76.5 A (considering all the loads), thus, it is fine for me to use a cable of 4 AWG (max. 85A @ 75 c).For the circuit breaker I did 76.5 A x 1.25 = 96 A and then I selected a breaker of 100A.My question is: Is it ok for me to keep this configuration according to UL 508A? 100A breaker + 4 AWG load side cableOr do I need to level up the cables?Thank you very much in advance!
