  1. Hello. I am trying to make a serial RS 232C connection between Schneider Magelis HMIGXU3512 and Omron PLC CP1E. However, there seems to be a communication problems between both of the equipment. I am using cable XBT Z9740 for the serial communication cable. The format used is 8.2.N for both equipment. The baud rate is 115200. No Flow Rate is choose. Anyone can help with this kind of problems?
  2. Hi there, Im having issues controlling ATV 320 VSDs over Modbus RTU with a M221 plc, does anyone have any pointers for me to look at? I believe I Have set everything up correctly but when I run the program on the plc the atv's just stay in 'NST' state I have included screenshots if they are any use   My speed reference in this example is taken from the memory word %MW0 which I am inputting via a HMI   I have addressed all my ATVs accordingly in there setting with the correct Modbus parameters and selected Modbus under the FR1 configuration, am I missing anything?? Any help is appreciated as I am really struggling   Tom
  3. Barcode string parsing

    Hi all, long time reader first time poster. I am an AB programmer through and through. Recently working on more and more omron gear and need a bit of a steer in the right direction. I have a sick barcode reader communicating to a omron CP1LE PLC over serial. Problem is the value from the barcode reader is not value, it is sometimes multiple values separated by commas (,). I really wish to only have the first value before the comma in this long string stored in D200.  I take it i'll have to move this string into individual container registries which i can easily go from there and pick which one I want to use. But how do I initially go about parsing the string in CX programmer? Attached is a screenshot of what I have so far> Cheers Dave
  4. Hello! I am using PLC TM221CE16R and SoMachine Basic v1.6. My PLC has firmware I use analog expansion bus, input module TM3AI8. Everything was working fine for 2 hours until suddenly I got next message in SoMachine Basic: I/O expansion configured but is absent or inoperative. I/O expansion bus is not started. Since then ERR LED is always blinking. I already tried deleting program, updating firmware, removing expansion module in configuration page, removing/adding physical module, selected module as Optional, removing battery - nothing helped. If I try removing application, ERR LED is still blinking. Seems like I can't delete previous program, something like config file is burned into PLC.  On the other hand: if I write some simple program, PLC works fine. It turns on/off relays correctly. Just expansion bus is not working. It is not working even if it's not configured or attached physically to PLC.Can anybody please help me? It is really frustrating.
  5. Hello guys, I want some solution for my Mitsubishi Application. I have Visual Studio 2017 (VB.NET) and MX Component 4. I want to connect Q03UDVCPU (Q series PLC) through Ethernet connection. For Read (M0 Flag value and <if M0 is On> then read Barcode information also from PLC.) and write (M1, M10). How can create this transmission program. please kindly guide me. Thanking you.
  6. Greetings everyone. I'm new here. Hoping to get help to operate the Omron V400-R2 barcode to the Mitsubishi QJ71C24N so that they can communicate the two devices with the correct method. PLC: Mitsubishi: Q03UDVCPU; barcode: Omron V400-R2; serial communication module: QJ71C24N. I use RS 232 communication cable, I have tried using predefined protocol and non protocol procedures but still can't communicate the two devices. I really appreciate your help.
  7. Dear experts, I have a problem with drive for servo motor "Schneider elau c400", the problem is that I was doing parameters backup, but it stopped suddenly and tgen I found that all parameters back to default, what are the initial parameters of the drive which can start the motor?

  10.   Hi everybody, this is me psoting for the first time here.  Currently I am taking a distributed control systems course, and one of our current tasks is the following: "Develop a control system with the task to control an induction (asnychronous) motor. You may use HMI SCU 8B5 (Schneider electric PLC) and Altivar71( Schneider VFD). The communication protocol to be used is CanOpen. The process should be visualized on the HMI of the PLC. Using the IGSS scada system, you should be able to control and observe the system on a PC." I have written the SoMachine program that I will upload to the PLC(basically Schneider provided the code for the exact same hardware: Then I moved on to set up the IGSS scada program, following the pdf manual listed on their site, page 18 and on: . I tried to follow through all the steps, however I do have a few questions. First, in step 8., which driver should I use for my hardware? I selected the Modicon driver, as that was one of the few Schneider drivers available(see attached image). My second question is with regards to connecting the variables that the PLC sends to the PC and actual objects in the graphical environment, such as on page 32. How do I do it? If anyone has more materials on this topic, it would be greatly appreciated. I can't get any help from my tutor(he refuses, and says we do our own research). If you know somebody who could perhaps help me out on this one, please feel free to share with them this question.     
  11. Hello, I am new to the forum. Being doing a lot of googling to see if theirs any cross-compatibility between an M241 PLC and a Simatic panel PC and stumbled across this forum which hopefully could help me out. I'm starting an automation project to automate my home brewery. The M241 from Schneider electric seems to tick the boxes for what I require.  At my work theirs a redundant Simatic Panel PC 670 just waiting to be recycled. My question is, can I use the panel pc purely as an HMI for the M241?  
  12. My issue is trying to receive data from a Datalogic PM9500 barcode scanner onto a Siemens ET200S (IM151-8 PN/DP) CPU using a serial interface card (6ES7 131-4BD01-0AB0) with the ASCII Protocol. The software that I'm using to program the PLC is TIA Portal V14. I made use of the built-in function block S_RCV to try and receive the data into a data block that I have created. I connected the Datalogic's base charger unit directly into the PLC's SI module. (I cut the DB9 plug off) So, Pin 5 (RXD) of the SI module is connected to the Tx wire (Brown) of the scanner, the Tx is also connected, as well as the ground, to the SI module, however, I only require the Rx. There is no flow control. Upon scanning a barcode, the Rx LED on the SI card flashes, indicating that something was received. I have tested the scanner using a terminal program called "Hercules", and I am receiving what I should be when I scan something. The parameters such as Parity, Stop Bits, and Baud Rate, etc, of the scanner corresponds to that of the SI module as well. I paramatized the S_RCV block as follows: 1.) EN_R is always ON. 2.) R is defaulted to the instance DB that was created with the function block's tag.  3.) LADDR  is set to "100" as that is the start address of my SI Module as defined in the device configuration. 4.) DB_NO is set to "2" as it is the number of the data block I created for storing the received data.  5.) DBB_NO is set to "0", which I understand to be the data blocks offset start point from where to start inputting the data. The rest of the NDR, ERROR, LEN, and STATUS outputs of the function block are also defaulted to the instance DB tags. I only want to see if I'm receiving the data from the barcode scanner into the datablock. I created an array of bytes and I also tried with characters  from 0 to 30 to store the data. As I mentioned, the problem comes when I'm trying to scan something, the RX LED on the SI module pulses, but when I monitor for any changes in the Function Block, as well as for any changes in the Datablock itself, nothing happens at all.  I don't know what If I'm missing something, this has been bugging me for some time now, I'm quite new to the whole programming scene, I would appreciate any help I could, get also I've attached the project file too. =)   Yumi_Panel.zap14
  13. Hi Everyone! Where are my experts? I am undertaking a project at work. The project contains analog style motor positioning circuits (operational amplifiers, integrators, and other PI elements). Not that this is relevant to the post yet ;) .It's my first PLC project ever! I am using the Schneider M258 with SoMachine 4.1 The PLC is talking to SoMachine via Ethernet (obviously I have a router between the PLC and my pc).I can Login and run the first POU I created. It's a simple And logic circuit for now. I have a co worker (c programmer) agreeing to help me pass data from my PLC to a browser screen. Although he's not familiar with PLC he's quite skilled writing code. He has wrote a Modbus protocol which allows him to interpret Modbus commands on his desktop.   1) Do I Need any special hardware to pass the data out of the PLC into the Router then into his browser. 2) As a trial can I send him MODBUS commands regarding my AND circuit? 3) How do I create such a command? 4) Is it possible for him to send me Modbus commands to change variables inside my program? 5) Are there web browser "plug-ins" for this idea? Thanks for reading and hopefully all of you can help me answer some of these questions.        
  14. Hi all,   currently as part of a project I am trying to communicate between a Schneider M340 plc and an Allen Bradley micrologix processor. I am programming the M340 and the micrologix has been installed by another supplier. they have mapped the Modbus registers on their side and given me a spreadsheet with these.  I am able to read values with no issue but I cannot write values back.   i've included a screenshot or the read_var and write_var instructions I am using. I would really appreciate any help if anyone has any insight on this   Mark
  15. I need to charge a plc program on a TSX67. Can you tell me which cable and program  I need to connect and charge to the TSX67Can you help me please?
  16. Hi all, I am working at a company that has a paint booth that is rather outdated. It has 10 robots in the booth and the safety circuit for each robot is controlled by a Modicon Nano TSX PLC. I have managed to successfully download the programs with the PL7-07 software (managed to do it on a laptop with window XP). We have some back up programs that were taken roughly 4 years ago and I would like to load them both up on the software and compare them. Is this function possible and if so how do I do it?   Thanks  Shane

  19. Hello, I have a Datalogic GD4430 barcode scanner and a Omron NS5 touchscreen. When I scan a barcode that contains characters CR (0x0D) or LF (0x0A), nothing appears on the text input on the screen.Scanning a barcode that doesn't contains special characters (excepted STX and ETX) works perfectly. How to get a barcode that contain CR or LF characters ?Thanks

  23. ASCII Code 8 Byte In Twido

    Hey Guys!!!! I'm trying to use ASCII 8 bites in TWIDO PLC and on MOD BUS TCPIP it connected to WinCC , where I'm trying to read the ASCII in as a STRING char that to in 8bits. The problem I'm facing is that it is getting swapped like if I'm writing VA in PLC then on SCADA it is showing AV. In WinCC there is no setting for word swapping. Therefore Kindly help me for this in plc end

  25. Hi all, I am trying to control and/or read values from Schneider Altivar12 VFDs. Via Modbus on a AB Micro850 PLC (using the Connected Components Workbench Software). There seems to be two ways to do this with the Micro850, either with messaging (using the msg_modbus instruction function block) or with the Modbus mapping feature. I have a list of the communication parameters (see attached fileATV12_Communication_parameters_BBV51917_1.4IE05b.xls ATV32 Communication parameters_a1.2ie03.xls) But I haven't had any experience with Modbus and I am not having any success. There is not very much documentation about how to do this, If anyone can help me who has done this or knows how to do it I would appreciate it.
