  1. Hi Every one, I have two 2198-P070 bus power supplies for that I’m using for four Kinetix drives, 2 drives per power supply, all controlled by one processor (5069-L350ERMS2). I have an enable contactor setup for each power supply for each set of drives. I have them configured as DC bus groups 1 and 2 respectively. I had the first set of drives working, setup inside the motion group, with no issues. When I added the second power supply and drives. I found that when I added them to the motion group I couldn’t get the enable contactor to close for the first set of drives. I f I took them out of the motion group and made them ungrouped then the first contactor would close but then I couldn’t get the contactor on the second set to close. Do you have any thoughts as to what I might be missing to get these to work? See the screen shots for more detail. Let me know what you think.  Also, I have heard that only one motion group is allowed per PLC, but my question is : Can I use  sevral axes and Power units in the same motion group? 
  2. Delta DVP12SE Modbus TCP Help

    I requested support on getting my DVP to talk to Factory IO for some cost-effective programming experience but the DVP is really poorly documented. The below wording and 2 pictures were all the support I got as I am not a business. The M codes are not listed in the ISPSoft help file and hard to track down, combined with things like "After the reception of the command is complete, bit8 in D1395 is ON" and then if I am reading input registers and holding coils but saving to a D word register how the heck do I convert the data into a useable boolean format for logic use??!! I have no been able to even get the DVP to read or write ANYTHING but I can use a modbus program to turn on the DVP's bits no problem so I know communication works. eg: F05 H500 will toggle coil Y0. The issue is when I try and use the DVP as the modbus client. From my laptop I can use these commands to modify Factory IO which is running as modbus server Slave ID 1: F02 H0000 H0009 (Read inputs 0 to 9) Tx: 00 02 00 00 00 06 01 02 00 00 00 0A, Rx: 00 02 00 00 00 05 01 02 02 C0 00 (In put 6 & 7 are on) F15 H0000 H0009 (force coils 0 to 9) Tx: 00 0F 00 00 00 09 01 0F 00 00 00 0A 02 00 00, Rx: 00 0F 00 00 00 06 01 0F 00 00 00 0A   But how the heck do I format the LD program to actually do those commands?

  3. Omron rs485 communication

    I am using OMRON CJ2M-CPU15 with SCU41-V1 communication module I want to establish communication (rs485 modbus) between omron and Schneider device for reading out electrical parameters. How I can do this? I could not find any manuals and this is becoming very hard for me. I want simply to read few registers from Schneider. Where do I set unit number, starting register, ending register, number of data? I was recently using Siemens and Unitronix and started working with Omron recenlty. Do you have any examples or manuals for this? Thanks in advance

  5. Axis Attribute Error

    Hello All, First time working with PLC. Get the hang of it from stuff I researched. Having an issue with an axis setup for a servo motor.  When I try to do an auto tune it gives me an error that axis is not configured.  Source: Config Fault    Condition: MotorDeviceCode- INvalid attribute      ACtion: Immediate Stop Fault Entry: Type 8, code 9 subcode: 1314 stopaction: 4 Statechange: 3   I was wondering what am I doing wrong? Any leads or source information I can use to solve this. 
  6. Dear automation friends,   I just like to put some issue in the clear that I have seen no reported issues on yet, but it is killing me. Maybe some other people in the world also have this issue. We use Windows 2016 on FT View v10. All patched with all compatible patches (both Windows and Rockwell). We install this software a lot but we only got this issue seen/reported on windows 2016. I never had a Rockwell issue that took so long without getting it fixed. Support is also not really helping.   We just have a setup of Windows 2016 with 2x redundant FT View Servers and about 10x Clients with each 4x screens. The HMI clients run perfectly but every few days, 1 application (on 1 of the 4 screens) just crashes "DisplayClient.exe application crash...". That closes the HMI interface and then the users needs to click on the hmi.cli file to launch that screen again. Refering to ntdll.dll in the windows events. No additional info except for the windows error reporting that is unable to contact the internet to send the crash report. Looking in the FT Diagnostics, it happens while the operator is operating the hmi screen. Not when there is no activity.   We reinstalled 1 client completely from scratch, including the OS, domain integration, everything brandnew. And 10 hours later: crash on 1 of the 4x screens. In a control room with almost 30 screens, this is very annoying and unacceptable.   If you have a similar issue or got the issue fixed, please let me know. If you have a similar issue and don't have it fixed, we can share more detailed logs.   Best Regards,
  7. Connect PLC to Kepserver

    I have Delta 12SA2 PLC it has RS232 port and I have connected it to kepserver (by Modbus serial) and then factory IO Now my problem is that when I connect my PLC to kepserver the RS232 port becomes busy with the kepserver and not available in the ISPSoft and therefore I could not demonstrate factory io and my logic in run mode in the isp soft together like you do in your videos. My PLC don't have ethernet port but is there an option in kepserver or any way by which i can use the same serial port of the PLC in isp soft run mode and kepserver+factory io together so that I can simultaneously show the logic running in isp soft and application working in factory io to my students. I googled a lot and found some softwares which make virtual serial ports for a given serial port but they don't work and soon hang Please help me I am in a great need of it. Thanks in advance.
  8. Hello, From modbus, Im reading a HEX variable in the data register D0, as it is a 32 bit variable, the second part is saved in D1, then I get: D0: BE62 D1: 31D7 The value that I should obtain in float is -0.2208932 as I obtained setting  BE6231D7 in online Hex to float converter and this agree with what I'm reading on the flowmeter.  The problem is that when I try to change the data type from channel to Real on CX programmer I obtain a different value, also the registers are not sort in the proper way, instead they are sort inversely 31D7BE62, and obviusly the obtained value is completely different. Also instead of Hex, I want to display the decimal, or floating value, is there a way to do this? I'll attach some captures.

  12. Hello, I have been so many days trying to comunicate the multiway software trought a serial usb converter with the SCU31 device, using a omron function block to read a holding register, but I can't achieved it. Now Im receiving some frames on multiway, but there is always some errors. I was wondering if somebody in here that have worked previously with modbus and omron can be able to help me in how to configure everything corectly to be able to read the value from multiway, on the plc, and where is this value saved.  I'll upload some captures to show what I have done till now.

  14.  Hello, I have been reading some post on this forum about Modbus and omron, but it has been complicated for me communicate an Omron PLC and a computer just to test the Modbus communication. I have a PLC OMRON CJ2M-CPU32 20K  with a CJ1WSCU31-V1 that I want to communicate trough Modbus first with a computer just to test that is everything working ok.     How can I do that? How do I need to configure the units, switch? Nodes?   Im using multiway, and CX programmer, I already downloaded Macro Protocol to the PLC, but by now the only thing that I get is RD1 flashing when Modbus poll software is active on the computer, but this software says timeout, and don’t receive packets… I have used the easymodbus excel file to create the code to communicate the PLC, but as I see isn’t working.   Does somebody in here have got to connect a plc to the computer with this easy modbus file? How is the proper way to use it? Or there is a better way to use Modbus in Omron?   I’m really desperate.   
  15. Hello! I am new at programing PLCs. I am using TM241CE24R PLC with TM3AI4 analog input module. I can successfully read temperature from 4-20 mA sensor. I want to communicate with my PC (SCADA) via Modbus TCP. For testing purposes I am using CAS Modbus Scanner. I can read digital inputs, coils and holding registers successfully. Problem is that I can't read analog inputs (#300001 etc.).  I have nothing defined in GVL list. Is this causing problem? I also don't have any Modbus TCP Slave device in Ethernet_1. But how can be all the other registers read successfully?  Please take a look at screenshots below. Also check Error message from CAS Modbus Scanner. Where is problem? Please help. Thanks in advance!

  19. Voltage Output Greatly Reduced

    Hi All,  I have an Allen-Bradley 1762-IF2OF2 Module which I am using for a voltage output. The range of my output is scaled to 0-6.4V (0-19968 bits) from a 0 - 700°C input.  Currently I am receiving an output voltage 0-0.458V which is way smaller than my 0-6.4V required output.  Has anyone seen something like this?  I have added some images to help explain how I've set it up.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks C
  20. So, I have thought about creating my own Business for the last few years. With this business I would go shop to shop/factory to factory teaching anywhere from Basic PLC programming to HMI design and integrations. I love to share any bit of my Knowledge/experience with anyone and I have learned this more when at my first engineering job they had me train several guys on how to start up Servo Motor jobs with PLC and HMI's. I really enjoyed helping others learn and get over the hump of intimidation and lack of experience with electronics and such. I have had a lot of different experience from being an Electrician for 5 years to Engineering 10+ years now- (Design, Software, Startups, Service work, Installs, and Management) I then started a career of being a PLC Instructor (part-time for 1 year now) for adults and this too help me with my idea of starting my business. At my instructing school we would get a variety of people anywhere from fresh out of High School to experienced Maintenance guys that want to specialize in PLC and HMI's.  With all of this being said, does anyone think there would be a great amount of need for someone to come your work place and teach Allen Bradley, Omron, and Mitsubishi PLC and HMI and maybe one day down the road Servo Motors and logic for them too? I think that more one on one with a couple trainer lab stations, I could really help not only workers advance themselves but also companies benefit both? I have gone to training for my previous employers, sometimes traveling far away for a week at a time and costing my employer a lot of money where my rate would be much less and on-site of the customer/trainee's. Starting out I have bought several used pieces of PLC's, Input Cards, Output Cards, (Only Allen Bradley for now). I have also bought cases to make my training units more safe and portable. Looking at creating a business name and logo as well as possibly creating a (LLC). It has been a slow but steady process though. Feel free to add anything or comment anything to this with ideas.   Thanks!
  21. Control Panel

    Is it possible to view the values / states of all inputs, outputs and workbits (e.g. 64.00 through 64.15 on Omron CQM1 PLC) on a single screen or control panel within CX-Programmer software?  I'm trying to troubleshoot some ladder logic that I wrote and need to know the values of 5 or 6 inputs/outputs/workbits simultaneously.  Having to scroll up and down through my ladder logic repeatedly does not work well with code that changes state every 5-10 seconds or so. Any help is welcome.
  22. Unconfigured I/O Address Used

    Hi All,  I am encountering an issue with my Allen Bradley MLX 1200 processor when trying to use the integrated PLC I/O channels I:0.4 - I:0.13 I am getting the error "Unconfigured I/O Address Used".  I'm using RSLogix 500 to program the PLC.  I have tried to configure the I/O however it doesn't seem to allow me to 'Activate/Configure' I/O past I:0.3. Has anyone seen something like this before?    Thanks CThornton
  23. Control Logix 5561

    Hello  We have just purchased some equipment with a Control Logix 5561 (1756-L61/B Rev 13.40). The compact flash card is missing from the unit but the seller says the unit was running in his facility prior to shipping. Does the 5561 have internal memory where a program is stored? Is the Compact Flash used only for recipes and persistent data? Thank you
