  1. Hi there, I'm wanting to connect a panelview 800 to an SLC5/03 the SLC is connected to an 1747-AIC which is run to another 1747-AIC. I'm trying to figure out what cable I require to connect the peripheral of the second AIC module to the panelview. I can't seem to find any reference online. Any help would be appreciated. Image attached to clarify.    
  2. I'm trying to connect a 2711-K5A8L1 FRN 3.13 PanelView 550 (DH+ three wire connector) to a 1747-L553 SER C REV C (RS232 and ENET). I read that I may need FRN 3.3 on the PanelView 550 to do a passthrough. This will be a dedicated connection with no other devices. The PanelView 550 has only the three wire DH+ connector and an RS232 printer port. I was trying to connect PanelBuilder 32 to the RS232 port and may only have PRINT and DOWNLOAD capability on this port. Is there an inexpensive way to connect the PanelView 550 and the PLC CPU? Something like the 1761-NET-AIC would be fine, but I did not see an option for DH+  .
  3. Hello I downloaded a .mer file on the Panel view 1000 but it shows errors on the display graphics. i have configured the Rslinx communication several times by selecting the rigt PLC in Design and Runtime mode. I am using Facotry Talk view 8.20 and creating 5.10 runtime file. Please advice. I was able to correctly download and use the HMI on a similar machine. I dont know what am I missing on this one.    Thanks Pratik Jain
  4. Problem with CX-one instalation

    Hi I have problem with the instalation of CX-One over the instalation it stops and give the message: "Error-3: CX-Server Device Driver(Generic FINS Ethernet)failed to install. Try to install it manually from CDROM (Generic FINS Ethernet Device Driver\setup.exe) at the end of instalation." Then if I go to the CDROM and try this instal manually I got the message about the "Unable to locate CX-server" but CX-server I correctly instal from CDROM with sucesfull finish message. And If I try to start CX-Programer I got the message about missing cdmapi32.dll. So what I can do about this :(
  5. We've purchased an Autoclave at auction with CompactLogix L32e and PanelView Plus 1000.  With the help of some forum members and a local engineering company we have the machine finally working! I'm looking for some advise as to how to train users for standerd operation.  For example:  Their is a toggle switch on the front which powers on everything (PanelView, processer, switch, etc).  We close at 5pm each night.. Should we Power down the machine each night, or leave it on? Another user mentioned a battery and I was a bit confused with the manual. With the machine off, Is the PLC only holding the program because of the battery?? I have backups of the following.. (.acd, .apa, .mer) files.  I also have created a Disc Image of the Internal Flash card on the PanelView.  Is their anything else I should have a backup of? Their is a CF card in the PLC.  It has a folder called "Logix" and one called "System Volume Information"  In the Logix folder is  a CurrentApp folder with a .bin and .p5k file.  Does anyone know what exactly these are doing?? Any other advise is greatly appreciated.  Thanks so much for your time.
  6. Trouble Wiring a Simple LED with a Micro820 Controller

    Hi everyone, Recently, I started working with the Micro820 Controller Embedded I/O. My project is simple : when the output _IO_EM_DO_00 is set to true, an LED light turns on. But, even though it's super simple, I can't make it work. Here's my setup. If you need more information, feel free to ask anything !
  7. CVS file log not generated.

    Hi guys, Yesterday I posted a question about how to create a trigger for a log. Now I have the next problem. I created my log, loaded the Logging firmware on the GOT but the CVS file is not generated. Can someone tell me what i'm doing wrong? I am attaching all the settings and the PLC part of the program. I want the values of ZR1200 ZR1204 and ZR1205 every time they change. They are recipe values. I tried also putting a button to create the log file on the HMI. Did not work.  
  8. Find password from .mer or .apa

    We have a sterilizer w/ Allen Bradley controls which we bought at auction.  It has a panelview plus 1000.  It came with a CD containing .mer and .apa files.  I was able to load the .mer file via the configuration screen by using the external CF card.  When I run the application, their is a login button in the bottom right which when pushed brings up a user/password screen.  We do not know the user/password for this.  Is it possible to find the password by somehow reviewing the files.  We do not have any software, and do not want to make any changes to the program (rather than changing the password).  I've attached the files in case anyone can help. Also, was i correct to load the .mer file??  or should I be using the .apa?  I followed these instructions here. Thanks for your time PA1525_PVP1000.mer PA1525_PVP1000.apa
  9. Socket communication with Micro820

    Hi everyone ! I have a little project wich involves communication between two Micro820 controllers via TCP/IP. To do that, I started to work with TCP/IP socket. Within CCW (Connected Components Workbench), I tried to create a new socket instance using the instruction SOCKET_CREATE and set the socket address to Basically, my computer through the FTP port. The problem was that it couldn't create a new socket instance (error variable is set to TRUE and status is set to 4, wich I don't know the meaning) because I didn't have a server-side application that listens to TCP/IP socket requests. That said, I found an open source application called SocketTest that listens for TCP/IP socket requests on a specified IP address and port. So, I started a listener on the following address :, but the error variable is still set to TRUE and status is still set to 4. So, my questions are : Is my IP address OK ? Is my port number OK ? What means the status code 4 ? Is SocketTest doing what I think it does ? Do I need to do something else before using the SOCKET_CREATE instruction ? Thank you in advance for your help !
  10. NB Designer V1.4

    I found NB Designer really struggled running on Windoze 10 Pro x 64 bit - bloody painful to be honest - on both the massively fast desktop and very fast laptop - no time to wait around - likes my horse power. Selected it to run in Windows 7 compatibility mode - way better - quite nippy actually. Highly recommended - it appears the NB Designer team may have not quite caught up with the latest Windoze OS.
  11.  I am a begiiner at this so please bear with me. Recently we replaced a HMI that had gone out and we upgraded to a fairly newer version our old unit was a PanelView 600 and we upgraded to a PanelView Plus 700. I thought the process was going to be straight forward just swap and go boy was I mistaken not only was the panel a upgrade but we had to get new editing software. So I took the pba. file and converted it to a Factory Talk mer. file I thought I had completed the task after converting the file I got the following messages. Screen 1 - RECEIVING: Message display object will be converted to Multistate Indicator object at (226, 63). Screen 1 - RECEIVING: Message display object will be converted to Multistate Indicator object at (140, 35). Screen 2 - LOAD OUT: Message display object will be converted to Multistate Indicator object at (80, 30). Screen 2 - LOAD OUT: Message display object will be converted to Multistate Indicator object at (226, 0). Screen 2 - LOAD OUT: Message display object will be converted to Multistate Indicator object at (0, 120). Screen 2 - LOAD OUT: Message display object will be converted to Multistate Indicator object at (0, 0). Screen 2 - LOAD OUT: Message display object will be converted to Multistate Indicator object at (300, 120). Screen 2 - LOAD OUT: Message display object will be converted to Multistate Indicator object at (273, 120). So I continued with the file and then I went to the communications section and selected the target area and because we are using DH+ communications we installed a communication module to the panel and installed a resistor  as directed in the AB instructions. Now back to the software I selected the target area and added a driver for the DH+ then selected the DH+ and added another driver this time I selected the SLC 5/04 1747 L541. Then I went to the the shorcut area and added a shortcut to what I believe is the PLC we are connecting to then selected the driver and selected apply then I went and created a runtime application and saved it to a usb device and loaded it on to the panelview plus and when it runs all the tags show a erro such as the picture shows I uploaded I cant decide if it is a missing communication driver or a error in the programming would love to hear your thoughts on the issues. Thanks everyone for any posts you have  
  12. Comunication HMI and PLC 5

    Hello every people, I am working in to project with one PV Plus 1000 (2711P-B10C4A1 with Logic Module 2711P-RP1A), one KF2 and PLC 5/15, I have finish logic of PV 1000 and PLC 5, but the communication not good , this is the configuration made:       NODOS PLC 5/15 have address nodo 11 KF2 have address nodo 60 PV Plus 1000 have address nodo 0 PINOUT CABLE  DB9 (PLC) -- DB15 (KF2) 1--5--7  --->   8--6--7 DB9 (PV 1000) -- DB25  (KF2) 2--5--3   -----------------> 2--7--3 I wait for your help   Thank you         
  13. Hello, I am currently installing a PLC control panel and due to space constraints, we will need to install the Panelview 600 HMI separate from the Micrologix. We purchased a 50ft Allen Bradley communication cable, but 50ft will not be long enough. We have about 70 to 75ft of conduit between the panel and the HMI. I would like to know what options we have for this connection. I read that for serial connection, we shouldn't go past 50ft. I understand the Micrologix 1100 has an ethernet connection and the Panelview does as well, but I'm not sure what changes would be needed in order to communicate through the ethernet port, instead of the RS-232 port. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.   Thanks, JCG

  15. Greetings, I have a network in my facility with a dozen or so redundant ControlLogix PLC's, switches and Panelviews.  I want to back up and remotely access my Panelviews as I do the PLC's via the Engineering workstation.  Do I need to add RSView to the workstation to facilitate this?  I used it many years ago but don't recall how it was setup?  What should I buy? Thanx in advance  Steve in Las Vegas

  17. Hi. I'm hoping someone can give me an answer on this problem I'm having with a FX3GE PLC. I am trying to get a FX3GE plc to communicate to a drive over RS485 using a FX3G-485-BD card. In GXworks2. But am having no luck.  I have tried changing the PLC communication settings in PLC parameters between CH1 and CH2, But am unable to get any communication working on the front port. I have also tested with a FX3G-232-BD RS232 card and have the same problems. There is no activity on the SD RD led's and no data being sent. If I put the FX3G-485-BD card in a FX3G or FX3S PLC I have running the same code it works fine. So the problem I'm having is with the FX3GE PLC Please can someone tell me what the difference is with the front Communication port on the FX3G and the FX3GE. And how I can get the FX3G-485-BD card working on the FX3GE PLC. Thanks
  18. Hey guys, this is probably a stupid question so I apologize if it is, but I have a PanelView Plus 6 700 and a CompactLogix L36ERM on one of my machines at my plant.  We have several different molds that run in this machine, so we have 5-7 different PLC programs that can possibly run in this processor, depending on which mold is in.  I'm planning to go to a single program with recipes, but I haven't had the time to set that up yet.  So we use the PanelView for troubleshooting, and adjusting process paramters.  On the main screen in the PanelView I have the time/date and also the program name.  What I have been doing is just creating a string tag in RSLogix 5000 that is the program/processor name (we use the same name for the processor and program) and then on my PanelView I just create a string display that looks at the string tag name in the processor.  That way anytime a mold is changed over and the PLC program is downloaded, the PanelView displays the correct program/processor name.   Now this is all fine and dandy and works as long as if a new program is created, we remember to change the string tag to the name of the new program, we often run new sample parts and what we do is rename an existing program that has similar logic and save it as a new program name.  The problem comes up because if somebody copies an existing program and makes a new one, the string tag is still going to say the name of the old PLC program.  Now if we only had one or two or even 5 machines, it would be simple enough to just remember to change that string tag.  Our, or I should say MY problem is that we have approximately 40ish machines in our plant, and I can't always remember to change that string tag every time we create a new program.  I should say that I have been, but there are times that I may forget. My question is this, is there any way that in FactoryTalk View ME Studio to have a string display the name of the processor or the name of the PLC program automatically without having to manually enter the name into the string tag that I created in RSLogix 5000?  Like is there a system tag somewhere that has the name of the processor or the name of the program?   That was way more explaining then probably necessary.  It's early and I've had way too much coffee haha.   Thanks guys.

    Customer has a 2711 keypad unit with a suufix 'x' at the end.....does anyone know what the 'x' designates? I can't find any reference on the AB knowledgebase or in the manuals. thanks
  20. I have this panel view 1000 plus with accounts enabled but customer forgot the app password. I have both the executable and source file. Can I retrieve the password from any of both files? Can accessing configuration mode help disabling security to enter new passwords? Having the files, what is the best way of retake control over this application?    I am not experienced on AB equipment, but have general experience on automation. I have access to Factory Talk View.
  21. Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone knows why we cant change the date on an application using the system tags? I was able to use the system tags for time and that works fine. however, year,day and month are giving me a write error. (Basically made a screen for the user to change the datae/time instead of going through the terminal settings. Using RS500 controller: Micrologix 1400 HMI: PV+700 Factory talk studio ME.

  24. Panelbuilder 32

    I am in the learning phase of HMI and PLC programing and am trying to use some of the hardware that has been donated to me. I have an AB panelview 300 micro terminal and a Micrologix 1000 Plc (they are not tethered yet). I have constructed a small test board with everything mounted to it and have successfully written and downloaded a simple project to the plc with timers, etc.   Now I need to find a way to program the terminal to make changes to the program.   I am looking for some free panelbuilder 32 or anything that will allow me to program the terminal and use it.   Can anyone help me? All help will be greatly appreciated!
  25. We have a Panelview Plus 600. One of our panels is labeled "Motor Control," in charge of turning on/off different pumps. The problem is while the system is running, clicking the on/off button will not turn any pump off. When the system is shut down, the pumps can be turned on and off but not when the system is running. I'm trying to shut off one pump without shutting the whole line down. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
