  1. FX1N Counter operation

    We are working on a project that operates a set of 4 pneumatic solenoid cylinders using GX developer PLC type FX1N (C). when the desired sequence is selected, the cylinders operate in the order needed until they reach the counter. the counter value increases by 1 but does not run through the sequence again and cant move forward until the value of the counter is reached.  any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

  3. Gang, Hooking up an Automation Direct P2-32TD2P to an AC/DC LED and noticed the LED is always "on" a little bit. When the output is on, the LED is certainly on, but when the output is off the LED is still on by a fractional amount, not much but it's plainly noticeable the room lights are off. The CPU can be in Stop, no matter, power just has to be on. I think this has to do with the card's load disconnected error functionality. +24V and some fraction of amps is always present at the output whether the output is on or off. I talked with automation people at work who noted there is an Allen Bradley system that does the same thing, it caused them a problem, they had to use a relay or etc to make an off output actually be off. Has anyone dealt with this? I'm new to the Productivity software, but there doesn't seem to be a way to just turn it off in the IDE. It seems ridiculous to have to wire up transistors or relays just to have off be off. Thanks for any ideas.
  4. Hey guys,   I have worked on the FTView ME platform many of times.  I am now working on a FTView SE (Local Station) application, and I am having trouble connecting an Offline .ACD file to my program so that I can design.   If someone could help me with this it would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks in advance!
  5. CIP: Forward close fault

    I'm writing an CIP-driver in C# for communication between a Rockwell PLC and a Raspberry Pi. Currently I'm debugging the Connect/Disconnect process. Everything works fine, I register a session, I start an start forward. When I press disconnect, I send an forward close to the PLC. En this seams to work. Only in Wireshark I see an error: "Destination Unknown". But I can't figure out why the destination is wrong. I filed everything in the correct order according to the table below.  
  6. RSLogix 5000 Code Generation using C#

    I put together a demo of the c# library I am working on for Rockwell PLC. It basically allows you to parse/construct the L5X files for code generation, documentation, and other uses. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kV0nXSyM7Gg
  7. Read/Write Access DB

    I am fairly new on this forum & PLC's, usually i read and get tips from here.I use a RsLogix 5000 PLC software. I am currently working on a project at home that requires me to read from a Access DB. What type of Instruction or method do i go about, initially reading from Access? I know Excel is possible It's an existing system. Add on functionality/feature. I am using a barcode scanner that will link up to a Access DB to verify the barcode is legit and send this info to a different system via PLC/EthernetThe access DB is used because its a older system, it uses that. So it is possible? and guessing from what your stating, its is more involved to get the system working eventually?PLC = A&B 1769-L23-QB1 CompactLogix Controller I am using FactoryTalk View Studio as HMI, do not have SCADA.I have a control logix chassis. Thank you in advance...
  8. SLC5/05 upgrade

    I'm being asked to come up with ways to upgrade an old 5/05 rack. A few years ago I thought I remembered Allen Bradley having a special rack that would allow a new processor control various old IO types. Does anyone remember the name of that system? and has anyone used it? We will probably replace with an Automation Direct PLC (per their request) but, want to offer an Allen Bradley solution as well      
  9. FactoryTalk SE - VB Script

    Hey guys,   I am looking to query a database through FactoryTalk SE.  I will be scanning packages, and using that bar code to find a lane assignment from the database.     My question has to do with where the VB script will reside in the FactoryTalke SE program.  I want this script to run at all times.  I see that each screen has a "VBA Code" but I am assuming that these will only run when the screen is visible.   Where does this have to be stored in order to run all the time?   Thanks In Advance!
  10. tech connect follow up email

    I Was wondering what other people do in regards to the follow up emails that rockwell support sends out after you use your service agreement. I try and fill in all the questions and give good feedback but i have also ignored them all together and never heard anything else. For the record I am a big fan of the rockwell support it may take several calls to get a problem resolved but they have never let me down.

  12. C-More Recipes

    Hi everyone, I am using an EA9 touch panel from automation direct. I am using C-more's "call recipe" function to create and write new recipes, inputted by the user. My problem is that every time I make a change in C-more and send it to the panel, I lose all of the recipes created by the user because they are over written by the ones (there and not there) in my recipe database, on my computer. Now, I know this can be avoided by just uploading from the panel to start with. But inevitably, I will forget to do that one day. I would like to store the recipes on an SD card, so that they will not be lost when I make changes to the program. Has anyone done this before? Is it possible?
  13. Hello all, I am still fairly new to this forum and PLC's in general. I am trying to connect a EA9 touch panel via Ethernet to an Allen Bradley Micro Logix 1400 PLC. I am using Ethernet over serial because I need the serial connection to program while using the touch panel. I have given the Panel the IP Address 192.168.1.20 with a subnet mask 255.255.255.0 and I have given the PLC the IP address 192.168.1.10 with a subnet mask 255.255.255.0. The panel is not communicating with the PLC and I have very little knowledge on the subject, anyone's help would be greatly appreciated. The picture on the top is from the PLC and the picture on the bottom is from the C-More program for the panel.

  16. Choosing the right OMRON PLC - Vacuum System

    Hi All, I'm hoping someone can help me. We're currently in the very early stages of re-designing how our vacuum system works. Currently we have 6 vacuum pumps supplying around 8 different packaging machines which we currently have to turn on and off manually depending on the demand on the machines. The challenge is to design and implement a part or fully automated system to control the current vacuum pumps - The key requirements are Supply must equal demand for the vacuum pumps - so they are only used when neededAutomatic switch-off when not in useCycling the use of the vacuum pumps so as not to overuse oneAbility to take a pump out of the loop for service/breakdownsManual override/shut-offScope for expansionUser-friendly interface (possibly touch-screen/wireless)I am a complete novice when it comes to OMRON PLC work and would like some guidance on possibly similar projects or at least pointing in the right direction with which PLC to go for. Thanks for your time Jack

  21. Hi I have a big issue with machine user access using loggin and password. There are different levels of login (operator, maintenance and admin) locked with physical key or password. The problem is that whenever any other user sees the password or got the key he can use it later. Is there another efficient way to lock the access and may be record who is logged when and how? Thanks  
  22. Micro 830 RTC programming

    Hi all,  Can someone please help me, I am using a Micro830 Controller running connected components workbench software to program the controller. I want the use the Real Time Clock of the controller to control an output to turn on everyday at 01:30am and turn of when it receives a signal from an input. The output will control a backwash valve that will operate and activate a cam switch internally that sends a signal back to the Controller to say the valve has operated and can now stop sending the signal to the valve. (if that makes sense). I have tried playing around with the RTC instructions but I cannot seem to get it to operate how I want it to. Any help would be much appreciated. EnvrioService

  24. Hi everyone, I want to receive signal  from E+H flow sensor to Rockwell PLC( module MVI69-HART attached to PLC). I tried to use local 4 which is new local opened when I added successfully MVI69-HART(INT type variable) but it not work. Sensor's monitor display mA values (4mA -> 20mA).  Could you please show me how to receive mA signal in PLC software or give me some documents related to this issue?  Thanks. Have a nice day. ^^
  25. Gentleman…   Does Rockwell have any simulation PLC code that mimics an SMC-Flex soft starter?  Since we are using those (as well as the E3+ and E300) I would like to develop a model environment for starting of several drives.  In a specific case, we may have 3 or 4 drives in a pool of drives in which only a subset must be running at any one time.  Development of ladder logic for starting and maintaining those drives running while considering various fault conditions and startup issues would be very helpful in our environment.  I would like to be consistent among various areas within our plant that we incorporate pools of drives, from 4 to 2.  Having the ability to test in the lab would be very beneficial.  Thank you, David
