  1. real to integer number

    Hello, Could somebody give for me advice how need seperate real number to integer? for example I have in D10 real number 10,9 for me need to do integer number 10 and 9. The real number seperate to integer I am using this LADDER line, attached picture. In D90 I got 10, But how to isolate the number of decimal places,I can not think of. Please help for me
  2. Capture Date and Time

    I would like to capture current date and time to registers in the PLC. I would prefer to use a function block, if possible, since I need to do the capture at different places in the program. I am using a CJ2M. How can I do it?
  3. I'm very new to sysmac. I am trying to display the current date and time in the corner of each of my HMI pages. I saw a button labeled date and time. It is asking for a variable for behavior. Do I need to write some basic structured text or FB in plc to get date and time and pass it over? I figured the button would update itsself since when I placed it on the screen it had the current date and time and refreshes every time I leave the page and come back. 
  4. 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.  
  5. 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.
  6. LOGO! SOFT COMFORT V8.2 FULL

    Hello Experts, I have recently started to learn about PLC and Industrial Automation. I got Logo Soft Comfort demo software which cannot communicate with the hardware. How/Where (link) can I get a full version 8 of Soft Comfort for free? Thanks.
  7. Convert time

    Hello. this is my firs post is possible to convert the elapsed time of timer to real or int i need to make some math operation with the elapsed time thanks  
  8. 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.

  9. Time Input from NB Screen CP1L-E

    Hi guys,     I am trying to make a controller for an oven using MODBUS with a CP1L and an NB screen. My oven program will have 10 stages in one baking cycle, and the parameters for each stage can be modified individually (temperature, blower speed and time). I have set my number input in the NB screen to be a unsigned int of 2 integers and 2 decimals, and it writes to H4 in plc H memory. I move this value from H4 to W4 in the PLC, and input W4 into a timer (T0000). I have tried data manipulation and still have no success in getting this to work properly. My CP1L timer is set to BCD mode, as I am using premade MODBUS function blocks which are programmed with timers in BCD mode. Does anyone have any pointers regarding this? In the screenshot provided, the number i inputed in the HMI was 60.00.
  10. Codesys

    Hello - I stumbled across some mention of Codesys and was curious if anyone here uses it. Pros/cons? prefer it over other programming software. Have it downloading currently (since you can download a free variation of the application) but it looks quite interesting. Also - what PLC hardware is programmed with it? Did not see that mentioned on their website when I was browsing through.
  11. hello,,,, i want to ask, is there a way to convert the yaskawa PLC ladder program to a Mitsubishi PLC? and what software is used to program PLC brand of YASKAWA?
  12. Hello, Completely new to Mitsubishi PLCs and I need to use a date and time stamp for data collection purposes. We have a Siemens PLC as well and this has the data type "Date_And_Time" which is what I need to replicate. I have been attempting to write my own data type but am struggling with how to go about this as it is not straightforward and I cannot find anything about how the Siemens Date_And_Time is made up so I have nothing to go off. Does anyone have an example of a data type they have made that is the same? Or is there a data type which does this already in GX Works 2 that I just can't seem to find?  Please help!
  13. Hello - I am currently setting up a program to control a downlane conveyor motor and ran into the issue of operators leaving the conveyor on through their breaks/at the end of the shift.... I know, shocking . Anyways, the essentials of the program are the following - ladder logic, start/stop PB station, a sensor that says when I've seen a box for x-amount of time I will turn off, when the eye is clear for x-amount of time I will turn back on. When trying to 'solve the problem' of the operators leaving them on, I figured this would give me a chance to use a RTC (real time counter) and program it so that at various times of the day I will send a single shot to verify the relay is CT is open. I've enabled the RTC on the Micro810, dropped a TOW but do not really understand how to set the TOW block up. Hopefully that all makes sense. Thanks,  grubb
  14. Hello,, I have motion controller A series A172SHCPUN,, I have written the program ladder into the CPU, but I can't write the motion program.. i dont have the program to open file the program motion and I want to ask if I have the software SW3RNC-GSVE, my os computer is window XP, Can it be installed? and is the cable transfer used the same as the ladder transfer program cable (SC09)?

  18. OMRON CP1E-E10DR-A

    Dear all I am very new to PLC and having knowledge in embedded C program.I would like to start learning PLC programming.  I have OMRON CP1E-E10DR-A , It detected in my computer. I want suggestion recommendation on that which software will be chosen to work with this PLC. Please help me. Thanks
  19. OK,  I have a program in a Control Logix 5561 controller(ver. 19.52) that every time we go online with it, the communication between the PLC and the PC running RS5000 is so slow you cannot navigate the program efficiently. I am new to this facility but I noticed the programmer used 20 different periodic tasks to organize their program, mostly running at 30ms intervals. several are set to 10ms and some are even set to 3ms. I have gone through and found out that the short interval tasks have been overlapped 10's of millions of times, and the combined total of all scan times is over 160ms. I have a strong feeling this could be causing our comms bog down and possibly other erratic behavior but would like a second opinion. This machine has 2 indexing dials, with work stations that do work between indexes, Pick and Place operations, etc.  Is there even a need to be running these with periodic tasks? All thoughts are appreciated. Thank you

  21. Hello, I am having an issue with FIX Dynamics Real Time Database and the database columns available within when trying to query the database. On a system running iFIX 5.0, there are 19 data columns available, LHS of attached screenshot (in the screenshot example, crystal reports is used to view the columns). However in iFIX 5.9, only 15 columns are available (RHS of attached screenshot ), how can these missing columns be made available to be accessed? Regards, John
