  1. ANALOGIC BIPOLAR OUTPUT - HELP

    Hello everyone,   I'm a student who recently started programming, and I could really use some help.  I have a CPU-31 CJ2M OMRON PLC and a ADO41-v1 analogic card. I need help programming an analogic scale with a bipolar signal -10V to +10V to then control a drive, which will then control the motor. If anyone could help me out of give me some examples I'd be really thankfull.   Thanks!
  2. Currently, our SCADA setup uses Kepware, Wonderware, and Canary Labs data logger and historian. The data flow is as follows:  PLCs --> Kepware (on PC near process) Kepware --> Canary Data Logger (on PC near process) Canary Data Logger --> Canary Historian (on Server) Canary Historian --> Canary Axiom Viewer Client (on engineer's PC) We use Wonderware as an HMI on the Process PC to control the process. As many will know, this is very wasteful as Wonderware includes many other features and we are paying for all of them yet using only the HMI feature. Our goal is to cut Wonderware out of the equation (i am aware that Wonderware  could replace both Canary and Kepware with its data logger and OPC server features but this is the direction that was chosen so we are going with it).  My question is: Does anyone know of any simple and cheap (-er than Wonderware) PC-based HMI software that could replace Wonderware on the Process PC?
  3. Help with Fx0s 30MR

    Hi there, just need a little help, I’m very interested to learn all about plcs, I know the basics and I know how to wire them, programming them is the hard bit! Ive got an FxOS MR30 from work, to play around with, I know I also need Gx developer also,  my question is,  could I use gx developer “micro fx “ for this?    It seems to be a lot cheaper than the normal go developer.http://ie.farnell.com/mitsubishi/gx-developer-fx/software-micro-fx-plc/dp/3825577 any help with this would be great thanks 
  4. PLC Training

    Hi Everyone We are setting up a initial training in PLC programming for technicians, I got some experience with SIEMENS S7 but this seems to be an expensive choice, we would like to opt for a budget PLC but at the same time would like a user friendly software for teaching......I would like to have views of users of other PLC brands such as OMRON, MITSUBISHI or even Schneider??? thanks Jay

  6. Micrologix 1400 Float TAG

    Hello,  I have a micrologix 1400 plc connected to a length measurement gauge. The gauge sends an analog value to the plc to an analog input. I convert the value into a dimension and send it to F8:0. but I need this value in three different steps in the program. Since i just have one element of float (F8:0) is there anyway i can store the value in a different location or create more floating point tags eg. F8:1. F8:2 ?    Thank You

FX3sA-20MR, can somebody pls. help me what software do i need to download and programming cable to communicate with the PLC. Thank you in advance...
  8. I have recently come across a free virtual plc simulator called PLC Fiddle. It will enable you to create simple PLC ladder logic code within your browser. This is an ideal way in understanding PLC concepts for industrial automation. All of the basic PLC instructions that come with most plc units have been incorporated in this virtual PLC software.PLC Fiddle is currently in an early stage of development but is functional enough to be helpful to you in learning and understanding PLC concepts.  http://accautomation.ca/plc-fiddle-online-editor-and-simulator-in-your-browser/ YouTube Video: https://youtu.be/G43ZLOwu2dM www.plcfiddle.com Let me know what you think of this for a learning tool. Thanks, Garry
  9. Hello Friends,  I've been writing a program for several days now, Actually I'm an immature for CX programmer and also for plc programming, So I'd like to ask you, if there is any decent way ,,,,I mean a good method of starting to write a program and keeping the flow of it so, it is easy to keep track on what i've been doing from the beginning.??  Cuz sometimes I face the problem of loosing points that were written by myself but not remembering them, So I'd like to learn how to organize my written lines as a wanna be professional.   Thank you   :)

  11. Hi,   I am using Omron CP1E NA 20DTD with built-in ANALOG inputs and output. I know how to deal with digital inputs. But I have no idea about analogue input wiring and programming. I tried connecting gefran LVDT PY2 directly to an analogue input of plc. But the indicator light did not turn on. Do I need to use any signal conditioner or converter? The output of lvdt is 0 to 25volts. I HAVE ATTACHED THE DATASHEET OF LVDT. DTS_PY2_06-2016_ENG.pdf

  15. Software for Dynapro terminal

    Hello!  I have a Dynapro ET3170W touchscreen terminal from which I would like to upload the screen configurations.  I have tried Google searches and not found anything except user manuals.  3M has not been any help either. Can anyone tell me if there is a software program to do an upload or what I would need software wise to do it? I saw something mentioned in the application developer's manual about a TCS software package, but have not been able to find anything about it. This is really the only hurdle left in the project I am working on, as a Maple Systems or Direct Automation terminal can do the same thing as the Dynapro, I just need to know what commands are sent from the various screens.  Thank you in advance for any help.

  20. Hello, I'm looking for a simple data logging software, something that doesn't require any programming skills. Thank you!
  21. Hello All, A little bit about my current role. I am currently a Automation and Welding Robotics Programmer ( automotive industry ). I have been programming robotics for almost 4 years at my company, but this is all experience work, no qualifications. I enjoy the role but this is very insecure due to having no qualifications, if the company was to go under. I am currently working out in Hungary on a secondment with my company. The project was the introduction of a second line at one of our other plants. This has gone successfully and will be coming to an end come December.  While i have been here i have been working with a PLC Engineer ( Contractor ), After speaking with him about his role it intrigued me and felt it was something i would enjoy pursuing. Unfortunately it appears that he is a "knowledge is power" kinda guy which leaves me unable to learn anything from him.  So i am 30 Years of age this year... So my question is too any of you experienced and hopefully helpful individuals is...  Is 30 too old to start this career? if not then; Where is the best place to start learning about PLC Programming? What should i be learning? What courses are available? - Are there recognised governing bodies for this role? What career path would you suggest? I hope someone is willing to share info / answer some of my questions. Help in anyway would be greatly appreciated.
  22. Hello, I am currently working on programming my first sortation system.  Attached is a blue print of the in feed conveyors and their loadout lines.  As boxes merge together they will be scanned by the barcode scanner.  From there we will be told which lane each box must go down, from the WCS.   My question is, without encoders, what would be the best way to control this system? Counting the packages as they pass through the photoeye? Or setting timers?   Thanks, James Sorting Conveyor Layout.pdf

  25. C28P processor

    I purchased a couple of C28P units on Ebay, thinking they were I/O units which I could connect to my C28K. Unfortunately, when I tried to use syswin software to enter a ladder program into the units, I got rejected by the software.  Can someone tell me what software I need to communicate with C28P.  If not, does anyone want to trade these units for C28K..
