  1. Hi, I have some trouble with a CJ2M-CPU33. My client did a backup to memory card earlier today, and after this we did some changes through remote link. Now the client wanted to restore the previous backup to the PLC and has done so, but the system would not function correctly. After going online on the PLC it seems like the PLC is stuck in "Stop/Programming Mode". When trying to change to "Monitor" or "Run" mode a dialog comes up containing the following message: "Failed to change the operating mode. The operating mode may be still changing in the PLC."  - All the dip switches are set to off after restoring backup - The PLC has been rebooted  - I have downloaded the application again through CX-programmer  - Verified that the PLC is set to start up in "Monitor mode" But nothing helps. The same message comes up when trying to change the operating mode.  Hoping anyone can help to resolve this issue as it is very critical for us and the client. In advance, thanks for any tips or help received. Best regards Stian

  3. My apologies for being a newbie on this, but could someone save me on this... I have a Viper 650 and an eMB-60R controller which I want to control by ePLC connection using an NJ501-1300 PLC unit, SYSMAC Studio with EIP Adept Library for Robot... All are starting up well, and I connect all components to a switch hub...  But following the ePLC guidelines, the IP Address showing on the controller is I change the IPV4 IP Address on the PC settings to and the subnet to but the Adept IP Address Setting Tool on SYSMAC doesn't detect the Robot IP Address, also i tried ipconfig on command prompt which shows a different IP Address IPV4 and subnet of, I changed the previous setting on the PC setting to with the same subnet. But still PC doesn't recognize. I tried both configurations if ACE Software can detect it but the same ACE can not detect it also... Appreciate any thoughts on what's wrong in my configurations. Thank you.

  6. 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?
  7. There have been many good discussions on the applicability of cloud-based solutions for manufacturing and process control systems. On one side, some people have concerns regarding security and control of the information, on the other side, there are identified benefits enabled by cloud systems. From VMS minicomputers to DOS and Windows, from ArcNet to Ethernet, it is inevitable the industrial automation systems shall adopt the technologies that are getting predominant in IT general use; the current environment that I am calling the “Cloud-iPad era” is no different; therefore the practical discussion is not if those new technologies will be applied in the industrial environment, but how. This paper is not intended to join the conceptual discussion about the cloud, but just to present a few simple practical examples, where cloud technologies are already enhancing industrial automation solutions and enabling new business opportunities.

    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!
  9. 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. any help with this would be great thanks 
  10. 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

  12. 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   
  13. FX3sa-20MR

    Hello everyone, Have a nice day to all. We just received a small machine from china, and definitely we done a lot of modification to add  safety and other sequence, to adapt this machine to the existing line. I'm familiar with siemens and omron, and this is my first time for mitsubishi PLC. 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...
  14. 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. YouTube Video: Let me know what you think of this for a learning tool. Thanks, Garry
  15. 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   :)

  17. 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

  21. 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.
