Hi. Is there a way to make/code an OTE to act like a retentive OTE? So it will retain its state when the PLC is power cycled? Similar to the the assignment symbol := in structured text. It seems like what I'm looking for was discussed here. However they reference to code/attachments that doesn't seem to be there anymore. http://forums.mrplc.com/index.php?/topic/7252-retentive-bits/
Hello all, Require some urgent help on a project, apologies if poor explanation.... When CS1 CPU goes into stop mode in fault condition, eg fatal cycle time error, outputs retain in the state they were when CPU was stopped. In code we monitor CPU status and turn output high to pull in relay to indicate CPU status normal to wiring circuit. But if CPU goes into stop mode relay remains energise as code is not running to turn output off?? Therfore for examples conveyors keep running... How can we prevent this, can outputs be configured to go low if cpu stops? Any other ideas? Any help will be appreciate, thanks.
Hi all, Im trying to figure out how to create non-volatile memory tags in GX Works 2 (using a FX3U controller), so that the values stored in the D registers won't keep zeroing out every time the controller powers down. Does anyone have any helpful tips on how this is done? Thanks
My project is converting a Quatum Modicon to a Control Logix. We took the Modicon Logic ran it thru a Rockwell converter and created the Control Logix Logic. This was nothing complicated but a large file. In Modicon you have a Memory retentive bit -- (M). This converted to a Latch (OTL) in the Control Logix, we decided to place a coil OTE in Parallel with the Latch so we could unlatch on the rung going false. The memory retentive coil is there to hold memory on power cycle if it ever happened. So.... The question is Unlatch below The latch, or above Consider left a representive of converted logic in the AB. Logic a bit more complicated. A B C lL. U --||--|||--|/|--(OTL)--(OTE). L |. . --||-----|.
