  1. I wish to send a temperature set-point from an Allen-Bradley SLC 5/05 (Ethernet) PLC to a water temperature controller and read back the actual value. [ PLC ]<---------->[ Temperature Controller ] The temperature controller RS485 comms supports protocols for moulding machines from Arburg, Battenfeld, Billion, Demag, Dr. Boy, Engel, Frech, Husky, KraussMaffei, Netstal, Sumitomo, Toyo and ‘Spezial’. They have given me the details for Engel’s Interface Protocol P2 which is 8-bit ASCII. Question: What's my best option for this? Buy a BASIC module? [ PLC ] [bASIC]<---serial------->[ Temperature Controller ] Use the serial programming port directly? [ PLC ]<---serial------->[ Temperature Controller ] Use an Ethernet message to some external programmable serial server? [ PLC ]<----Ethernet---->[serial Server]<---serial--->[ Temperature Controller ] I've modified and debugged A-B PLC code but I'm not very familiar with their hardware. Many thanks.
  2. Hello, I have an annoying problem with communication between Siemens S7 PLC and HMI panel. Here it how it looks like: I am using Siemens S7-315 with 343 Lean ethernet port. This port is used to communication with HMI terminal. Communication is realized through S7-TCP communication protocol. When I was testing the communication in the office everything worked fine and nothing wrong happened. The problem occururs only on the installation. After turning the PLC and HMI on everyting works fine, data is transferred correctly and variables are displyed on HMI. After a few hours the communication is suddenly lost. This is a direct connection between PLC and HMI and there are no other devices in this network. So it is not possible that suddenly there is an address confilct. I made a wireshark analysis (I connected a notebook and hub into the network) and I found out that when the communication is lost HMI terminal is trying to get data from the PLC but it is not responding. It looks like PLC ethernet port is broken. You cannot ping PLC from notebook and HMI. On the other hand you can exchange pings between HMI and notebook. The communication is back again only if you'll restart the PLC. The strangest thing is that I did not have any problem with the communication when I was testing it in the office. The configuration and project of PLC and HMI is excactly the same. The only difference is that on the installation PLC is realizing also a communication throguh Profibus and MPI. I've tried to use different ethernet cables (crossed, non-crossed) but in all cases the situation is the same. Do you know waht can be the cause of such behavoiur? Maybe someone had a similar situaion? In the attachment I send a screenshot from Wireshark which shows the moment when the communication breaks.
  3. Hi All, I have problem about programming serial module Mitsubishi PLC using QJ71C24N. If I unconnect the cable from the module and connect again it show SIO error and the communication become lost or not sending data again. so i have to restart the PLC to make it normal again. Any other solution for solve this error without restart the PLC? Thanks Husanto
  4. Control G120C via Profibus

    I'm trying to control the speed of a G120C via profibus, but it will trip out when any changes are done to the speed value. The unit was commissioned by another guy, and he doesn't have a clue where to look. We can start and stop the unit, but it will stop at any attempt to change the speed. I was told to look for a parameter allowing it to be controlled remotely, but wich one is it ? As usual when it comes to Siemens, the manual sucks. I'm using a function block for controlling the drives (13), and the older 12 is responding correctly to any change. Anyone here that has a clue what parameter to change ?
  5. Hi I have a scenario where I need to setup communication between a Mitsubishi L-series PLC to Schneider Modicon M580. I need to use the onboard ethernet port of the L-series PLC. The protocol I need to use, is Ethernet IP. (socket communication). Can someone please assist?

  7. Hi Good Day, I need a suggestion, I have an omron encoder, encoder counter meter (K3NC-NB1A) and communication card RS-232C 25pins (K31-FLK1). My question is, what is the best omron software to read and manipulate the data from the encoder (I have CX-one software but I only use CX-programmer). I want to capture the encoder pulse and convert to velocity, acceleration, deceleration and also energy absorbtion. I have to use mathematical formula such as two times differentiation. I also need to show grapf and display final result that is energy absorbtion reading. Or is it much simple if I use VB / labview / java software? Thank you in advance
  8. Connect OMRON CJ1H to GSM modem

    Hello guys, actually I am new to this Omron PLC. but i have small project to transmit a command to the GSM modem via the RS232 port so it can trigger the modem to send text msg. Can you show me the steps/guide/sample program to accomplish this program coding? I already read some topic in this forum regarding to this PLC RS232 port but still cant get the ideas when to create the ladder program. PLC Type : CJ1H (CPU65H) - RS232 port First input to trigger the GSM send text msg: AT+CMGS="+YOUR HP NUMBER" Second input to trigger GSM send text msg: YOUR TEXT MSG CONTAINS (Ctrl+z to send) Many Thanks, AlexB



    There are two Proficy ME projects in the zip file one for VersaMax and one setup for 90-30 CPU364 but is the same for all of the 90-30 processors, but read the Manual GFK-2220 to get the correct port information for your CPU and configuration. They are both working and well documented. They were done quite a while ago but I do not recall what version of PME is needed to open them. It is my recommendation that we all use the latest version. Good luck and have fun with it. R~ <))>(

  11. Hi. I have a ST-Lite Ethernet base (STL-ETH1) with 1 16 bit digital in card, 3 digital out cards, 2 analog in and 2 analog out cards. I have a Q03UDE CPU (Q PLC) with 1 16bit digital in and 1 digital out card. Now I like to setup the remote I/O (STL-ETH1) mapped to the Q PLC via the ethernet port on the CPU. Is it possible not to use Modbus at all. I don't want to go and buy a Modbus Ethernet card now. Have someone done this before?
  12. I have 4 Allen Bradley PLCs which are 3 SLCs and 1 CLX This PLCs need to send data to Yokogawa Centum VP DCS. Instead of having and individual Modbus link to DCS, I'm planning to link all 4 PLCs by using Ethernet/IP and plan to buy 1 extra mini PLC which is Micrologix 1400 to become an interface PLC between the 4 PLCs and the DCS. Since the Micrologix 1400 has embedded with an Ethernet port (Ethernet/IP) and Rs485 port for Modbus RTU, the Micrologix 1400 interface PLC will communicate with DCS using Modbus RTU Protocol. Meaning to say, the 4 PLCS will send data to the Yokogawa DCS via interface PLC. The Interface PLC will become translator to translate from Ethernet/IP language to Modbus RTU language. My question to Expert: 1. Is this setup can works? 2. How to send data inter-PLC by using Ethernet /ip ? Is it just need to grab the tagname or there is an address for that? 3.Is Micrologix is capable to communicate with 4 PLCs using Ethernet/IP? Or just only 1 PLC? See the attached photo. Thanks. -Nizam-

  15. Inverters on Profibus

    Hello, Tried to get some good and clear answers at the Siemens forum, decided to try here aswell. I have a setup with 12 G120C inverters and three gas burner units on a profibus line. If I unplug any of the devices will I of course get an error from the loaded OB. But, now and then can I lose the connection to two or more of the inverters without any notification. It seems that the communication is up and running, but the don't respond to any commands. The normally green LED on the inverters switch over to flashing red when they stop to respond. They will also show fault code 1910. I am using standard telegram 20, this is also set in the inverters parameter lists. Another funny thing is that the fault bit in the status word is always set. Even when the inverters don't hav any faults or alarms. ZSW looks like this (with or without response from the inverter): Bit 0 = 1 (Ready for switching on) Bit 1 = 1 (Ready for operation) Bit 2 = 0 (Running) Bit 3 = 1 (Fault) On all the time, even when there is no faults in the inverter Bit 4 = 0 (No coast down active) Bit 5 = 1 (No fast stop active) Bit 6 = 1 (Switching on inhibited active) Bit 7 = 0 (Alarm present) Bit 8 = 1 (Speed setpoint - actual value deviation within tolerance) Bit 9 = 0 (Control requested) Bit A = 0 (f or n comparison value reached) Bit B = 0 (I, M or P limit not reached) Bit C = 1 (Reserved) Bit D = 1 (No motor overtemperature alarm) Bit E = 0 (Direction of motor rotation) Bit F = 0 (Display CDS) Anything I might have missed or done wrong ?
  16. can anyone please provide me how to communicate between keithley controller 2182A(nano voltmeter) and fx 3G plc.aslo the programme & instruction & parameters..ASAP using RS-232 interface? i have used the instruction as show in the attachment.
  17. Hi everyone, my client has a Direct Communication network consisting of Allen bradley 1772-SD2 (PLC2) and 1771-DCM modules. I need to upgrade one of the adapter node from 1771-DCM to newer hardware. My client is insists to KEEP the 1772-SD2 scanner as it is. So essentially I need a recent hardware to replace 1771-DCM and work with 1772-SD2. Do I have any option to upgrading this node with recent generation solutions?
