  1. PB32 to FTV 8.0

    Hello, I am hoping for some help with setting up a .mer. I will try and give as much detail as possible, thanks. I am trying to convert a .pba file to a .mer file and have it point to 1764-ML1500 LRP Series C using a PanelView Plus6_700, 2711P-B7C4A8. The old HMI is a Panel View 600, 2711-B6C5. I am also trying to do the exact same thing with another application, except it will point to a ML1400, 1766-L32AWA. I uploaded my old .pba file off of a Windows-32 bit Virtual Machine. Saved it, then copy/paste the file to my host computer, which formats it into a .pva file. Then copy/paste that file onto my Windows-64 bit Virtual Machine. In FTV studio, I created a new application and imported my .pva file. I changed my resolution to a PVPlus 7 Standard/Performance 6”/7” (640x480) and selected it to run on a Performance terminal. Currently, we have our ML1500 on Ethernet, using a Digi One IAP Serial to Ethernet unit. In RSLinx under ODD/OPC Topic Configuration:Data Collection Tab: the processor is pointing to a SLC 5/03Advanced Communication: the correct driver is selected along with the station number.When setting up the Digi One, we are utilizing Port 2 with DF1 Full-Duplex Protocol under the Serial Slaves Tab. Ethernet/IP and Allen-Bradley Ethernet is selected under the Network Masters tab.When I set up communications in RSLinx Enterprise in Local, I have: RSLinx,RSLinx Classic under my Backplane. Under my Ethernet Driver, I choose Ethernet/IP and have my PVP with its static IP, chosen. Then I go under PCCC to SLC and select 1764-xxxx xA 1500LRP, Micrologix 1500. I then import that into my runtime configuration, highlight my shortcut, highlight the processor, hit apply, verify, ok. I create my runtime using 8.0. Download my runtime to my HMI. Load application, configure terminal settings to match application settings. When I run the application on the terminal, all I get are errors where my tags should be. If I try to change anything on HMI, I receive a Numeric Input Handshake error, and other tags dont show up at all. All of this applies to the ML1400 as well. Only difference is, I select the ML1400 instead of the ML1500. (note: under system info on the ML1400 the cat # is: 1766-LEC; this is shown as a ML1100. Is this because the ML1400 is based off of that processor?)Even trying to use DH-485 for HMI, it does the same thing. I have checked my node address on my terminal, and baud rate. As well as my node address for the network and made sure they match. I know this application can be accomplished, another person that used to work with my team has successfully transferred the .pba into a .mer and it is currently pointing to a ML1500LRP using DH-485 with the same type of terminal I am trying to install.I used the imported his Runtime Shortcut he has on that terminal, and added an Ethernet driver and used my pvp terminal, set the ip then added the ML1500 using that processors IP. Downloaded it onto terminal, and it works just fine. There is something I am missing, some setting I haven’t done, or somehow have converted my .pba/.pva file the wrong way where it is causing this issue. I changed any Semi-colons and dashes to colons and _ in my tags. I called the AB Help desk and we ran a ‘tracert’ on the IP for the the ML1400. It is pinging my ip that is on the VM then going to the IP I am tracing, not the IP on the Host Machine. For the ML1500, since we are not using the 1761-NET-ENI, they did not offer much assistance since it isn’t AB hardware. Instead, instructed me to follow the Digi One instructions. If someone could please share some insight into this for me, it would be greatly appreciated. I have a lot of ML1500 to ML1400 upgrades ahead of me, as well as the PB32 to FTV upgrades. I tried to not leave any steps out, to give a full description of how I did everything. Thanks, The New Guy.

  4. Quick History: I'm a Marine / oil and gas engineer time served, worked for years with Mitsubishi, Schneider and Allen and Bradley. now at a top level position of management for an international company in which  were trying to standardize all our system. all the Old dogs (directors) swear by Siemens  Main Point:  i'm just coming to the end on my first project using Siemens and well..... its cost 10 times as much at least. nothing is straight forward or intuitive. it seems when i tackled the old boys on why Siemens is so great the main response is "everyone uses Siemens its obviously good". in other words its just me.  and anyone who seems to think Siemens is the dogs boll*cks has never worked with anything else (i mean really work with it, not have tried something for a few days back in the 1960's). or or has only done tiny projects which didn't really warrant the use of a PLC. Conclusion: i'm currently pulling my hair out with Siemens, is it just me?? I love Schneider, i like Mitsubishi i like Allen and Bradley . i always think of Siemens like "apple" and the others like "android" but Siemens doesn't lead the way if anything are coping the others. am i right?? and like apple if you but one thing Siemens you have to buy there plugs, cable ect.. I'd love to hear other peoples opinion (please make sure you state your experience)  
  5. S7-1214C All LED Blinking

    Hi everyone. Recently I get a S7-1214C ac/dc/rly plc, whenever i connect ac power all the indicating LED i.e 'Run/Stop , Error & Maint' start to blink. I can't upload or download any program. In TIA Portal V13 only accessible node is not shown. Anyone encountered the same problem? Please help me. Thanks in advance 
  6. Communication

    good evening. Someone can give tips on how to configure and physical the application with the following items: Advanced Interface Converters (AIC +), PanelView800 2711R-T7T A and MicroLogix 1500 Programmable Controllers My doubts are about the configuration of the communication, and I have doubts about the physical environment and protocol to be used.  
  7. Hello I am  a Robot Programmer. Fortunately  I would be beginning the PLC Programmer Interview Process. From Initial CV Screening and first round of Interview. Screening was easier. But unfortunately I am not good with PLC tech questions apart from that is involved with Robot Programming. I need a few questions to judge whether the applicant is faking his experience or does he has the qualities. If any PLC Programmers can help me, It would be a great help for me.   Thank You
  8. I have multiple PVP 1500's on the same network. From the one in my control room i need to be able to see what user is logged into what HMI. How would I address the system tag of another HMI on the same network would I use the IP address? thank you for any help in advance
  9. Which software for what PLC?

    Hello All, Is there a table which shows which software will program which Siemens PLCs? I will, of course, be contacting the distributor, I just wanted to be forearmed. Thanks.
  10. I am trying to use FINS/UDP network to communicate with a Siemens device (at a customers site over seas from my home office), today I attempted to set up a SEND command based on information my customer received from a local Omron representative but had no luck.  I feel like I am missing something in a setting somewhere, does anyone have experience doing this?  I am using a CJ2M-CPU35's built in Ethernet IP port which is also communicating to 5 other Omron devices over Ethernet IP, so I am wondering if there is an issue having both networks. Thank you!
  11. Hello everybody. I need to learn PLC programming. I already have some experience with Ladder language and PLCSIM so now I need a real PLC to do more practice. I was going to buy the following unit: 6ES7211-1BE31-0XB0 http://www.eibmarkt.com/isroot/eibmarkt/Files/DatenblattE/NS6102812.pdf It has 6 Di, 4 DO (Relay) and 2 AI, that's more than enough for me to do some practice. Do you think it would be a good idea to buy it? Or maybe this PLC doesn't have some important component or device needed to work properly? (my company will give me the software). Thank you to anyone will help me. Have a nice day, Edoardo
  12. Regards! My problem is the following. I have a client that has 7 different machines with touch panels SIEMENS TP277. A touch panel for each machine. The machines are different and therefore the projects that have to be loaded from WINCC Flexible to each panel are different. That is, 7 different projects. My client wants to have a single spare screen, not 7. Is there any way that he has a single spare physical panel and without needing WINCC Flexible can he load the same one of the 7 projects? Can not you record inside the panel and then load 1 of the 7 you need? Or via USB memory? ZhankS!   zHANKS!                
  13. I got into a project were they have 20 panelviews plus 1500 around the building, and they want to be able to serrate the displays accessible by the users based on the physical location of the panelview, for example Room1 should not see room2 but can see room3, at this moment we have a complete application with all the screens that have been downloaded to all panelviews, in order to avoid maintain 20 different ME applications I would like to ask if any of you had this problem before or any ideas on how to go forward with it.   Thanks
  14. I am using TIA Portal V14 to program a Siemens Mobile HMI (KTP900 Mobile). I would like to pull up a program 'signature' from the HMI that would allow me to verify that the code in the HMI is the correct version.  This would help prevent an accidental overwrite of old code, resulting in a single Mobile HMI that has differing code from several others that are also in use. The closest comparison would be a Safety Signature from a Safety PLC.  However, I just want to use a file checksum or similar variable that I can put on my screen. Any ideas?  I appreciate it. 
  15. All, I am using Keyence CV-X422A vision controller for my application. It is interfaced with Siemens S7-1500 PLC on PROFINET. I am able to communicate with Vision controller through PLC logic command and status IOs. There is some communication issue in updating the o/p values from Camera Controller. I have tried with & w/o Handshake Mode with these settings. The camera display shows the reject but camera never turns ON the NG Status o/p. I tried different things told by Keyence Tech support but none of them worked.  He told me to have you enable the “Result ACK Flag” in the bit allocation area and send  a signal to it. Then trigger it again with a no good part and see if that fixes the issue. I tried setting the “Result ACK Flag” to 1 after I get the “Command Complete Flag” for the trigger signal that I sent. Sometimes this works but still it is not reliable. Do I need to send only a pulse to “Result ACK Flag”? Anyone here has ever faced similar issue?  Thanks for your help. AP
  16. Greetings everyone, I have a Proface HMI(LT-4201TM Modular type DIO) connected to a siemens flow transmitter(MAG6000). Communication between these two devices is using modbus. The modbus register that im using to get the data/reading of a totalizer from siemens transmitter are 403022 and 403023. I managed to display the exact totalizer value from siemens transmitter on the Proface HMI screen. But I couldnt get the exact totalizer value at the ladder logic side, the value that i get at the ladder logic side seems like a raw value. For an example, the totalizer's value is 147083(real value), but at the ladder logic side the value for 403022=15598 and 403023=17316.   Can anyone guide me to solve this issue.   Thanks in advance.
  17. 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

  22. Hello, I need to make an ethernet communication Siemens S7-300 <> Omron G9SP. The HW of the Siemens that i us are CPU 315 2DP and CP 343-1 Lean. I did try to follow the Omron manuals Z922 and Z924, but faced with some problems. First of all in Z924 there is no complete HW configuration of Siemens (communication configuration is missing). Also, formats of messages differ in both manuals. Maybe there is an Simatic Step 7 project example, that i could open with Simatic Step 7 manager to do a deeper investigation, or maybe somebody has a lot more experience in this case? Thank you in advance.   WBR @rturas
  23. PLC flickering issue

    We r using Siemens PLC S7 400 in small power plant. Sometimes this PLC flickers and plant stops for milliseconds and regains its position. All Digital outputs turns off and then regains its original position. Can anybody have solution for this....???
  24. Hello, I want to connect the Siemens PLC S7-200 with MR J2S 350CP using Serial communication (RS232/422) so, is it possible or no , any one have an idea... Thank you in advance
