  2. Homing servo motors

    Hello everybody, I have a question about homing servo motors. I have a project with new servos from Omron and I would like to know what is the best way to do homing for the servos and how often. Before when we have servos with encoders I was making special homing sequence and was calling by some event. I heard that new servos from Omron pretty smart and remember own position without batteries. So with this 'new generation' of servos what is the key to keep machine robust, easy for motor replacement without useless programming stuff. Regards, Scotty
  3. I currently have certain amount of Recipe data located in form of Excel file on to a PC with static IP address. Is there a way to get that data inside the Nj501 without using an SQL server as I currently have NJ501-1300 which doesn't support SQL. I am okay to send data to the SD card I currently have on NJ PLC as it is easy to get data from SD card to the NJ501.  If there is any example code or a link that helps me create i would be helpful. Thanks in advance. FYI: I am currently using NB10 HMI with NJ PLC.
  4. Struct as FB input

    Hello,  I am trying to define a struct as an input variable for a Function or Function Block. For example the function AddDelimiter (This is a standard Sysmac function), has a input variable with the variable type Struct, an it is possible to couple a struct to this input (See picture below). If i try to make my own function block with a struct or Structure as an input data type, i get the following error (See picture below). When I try to define a struct from the data types (In this case struct: Test) it doesn't give a error. But when I try to couple a struct to this input, that is a layer deeper than the function block struct i get the following error (See picture below). How can i define a struct as an function/ function block input? Thanks in advance.
  5. Remote I/O weidmuller

    Hello,  I am trying to connect a Weidmüller UR20 Ethernet I/P  (Hardware version 1) to a Omron NX1P2 PLC via Sysmac Studio. I have imported the Weidmüller EDS file into Sysmac studio and connected two tags to the target variable 101 and 102 (I also tried using a array of bytes and a single word).   When I transfer this configuration to the controller and set the controller in run i get the following error: Tag Data Link Connection Failed (0x84070000). I have tried to update the firmware of the Weidmüller I/O but this doesn't seem to help. Also the web interface shows no connection with the PLC. I also tried to setup the connection with the CX network configurator but this gave the same result. Is there someone who can help me with this problem Thanks in advance.
  6. Is there any way to establish a variable as min/max value of a gauge on sysmac studio?
  7. I am using an Omron NJ controller and a Cognex Dataman 260 bar-code scanner.   At this point I can trigger the scanner and receive data from the scanner via ethernet/ip. My issue is in converting the response from the scanner to something human readable. The bar-code I scanned reads "872-3GSq".  The results of the scan are located in the variable Dataman_to_NJ[8]-[11]. At some point I know I need to use the SWAP function but I believe my lack of data type knowledge in this system is hindering me. How can I convert the value in Dataman_to_NJ[8] to the string "87"? Any assistance would be appreciated.  
  8. Hello everyone, I am working with a NB10W HMI connected to a PLC NJ by Ethernet protocol, I would like to know where to start regarding the sending of data from the PLC to the HMI. I have a 50x15 array and should show all those values in the HMI for read / write. How to proceed? I started working with PLC for a while. I'm using Sysmac Studio to programm the PLC and NB designer to the HMI.

    Hi recently I have seen Omron Europe and I have download an app for Android and iOS, that app can allow you to remote view HMI types NB,NS and NA9last from Omron). The reason of all of this, is if some body have try this app and also if communication and remote view was creat it. I have try all my best but still can't make it, if some body did it, could you please share it?. Thanks, Jose
  10. Hello, Does anyone have experience with getting online a NJ/NX via USB with Sysmac Studio running on windows 10? At Omrons website it says Sysmac Studio offers windows 10 support from version 1.15 but I can't find drivers anywhere. Have checked in the communication middleware folder as you can see in the attached picture. I have Sysmac Studio running on Windows 10 Professional. Its not a big problem for me right now, because I can always connect via Ethernet, but if the driver exist I would appreciate having it.  
  11. Enumerations in Recipes

    Hello,   Is there a way to limit the input of an ingredient value, possibly by use of an Enum?  For example, I have an ingredient called Press_Speed. I want the values to be either Normal, Slow_1x, Slow_2x, or Slow_3x. On the PLC these values are interpreted as numbers. Can I limit the input to the String representation of the Enum?   I'm using the NA series HMI with Sysmac Studio. 
  12. Hello everybody, i'm using sysmac studio and i'm new with the program. I want to use the ladder tools to describe the influence of the valves on the temperature and the flow. Can somebody help me how to do this? and where to start? The requirements of the project are: Valve TCV 35.01 is a temperature valve: u can control the outlet temperature of the water flow. 100% = 2 degrees celcius and 0% = 20 degrees celcius. Valve LCV 35.01 is a level valve: u can control the outlet water flow. 100% = 50litres/hour and 0%=0litres/hour. In the appendix u can see a view of the proces.  
  13. Hello, I am looking for a way to programatically select a recipe. Any time that a recipe is change or saved, the recipe viewer object always resets its view and selects the first recipe. This will lead to possibly writing the wrong recipe to the controller, as well as frustrate the user if they have to scroll through a hundred items to find the recipe again. I looked at the VB functions, but the only one I could find that was close was the .SelectedRecipe, which is a read only. I am using Sysmac Studio v1.1.7, and an NA5 HMI. Any help would be appreciated.

  15. In Sysmac Studio, is there a way of addressing Array of for argument sake 100 INT. For ex: TEMP[array 0..99 of int]- AT %W0  If I do that will TEMP[1] be %W1 or I cannot address array. PS: I am currently using NJ501-1300 and Omron NB Screen. I am reading/writing total of 450 variable all comprise of either INT or WORD. I would like to group them together for easy access and keeping my variable table neat. Is there a better way of doing this. Any help is much appreciated.
  16. Indirect Addressing NA Terminal

    Hi. ¿Is there a way to use indirect addressing on a NA Panel?  I need to use a motor operation template for several motors and i think is not very smart doing the same panel over and over. I have always created a screen and then reused it (on FactoryTalk View, Intouch, Schneider Vijeo) The problem is that we don't find any article about indirect addressing on NA panels. So we dont know how to do it. On CXDesigner we used DM addressing so we could use a template instead of creating many button panels when we need to operate a motor, for example. Its like when you use indirect tags on Intouch or Parameter files on FTV. I fear that indirect Addressing is not possible, but in that case ¿Which method do you recommend? ¿Got an example or an article mentioning it? Thanks in advance.

  18. Sysmac studio network configurator

    hi could you help me to find sysmac studio network configurator? from where i can start it?
  19. I'm printing extracts of my code for change control records. The print quality is terrible as it seems to output low-resolution JPEGs to the PDF or XPS files rather than vectored graphics and TrueType (or other vectored) fonts. See the attached close-up showing the artifacts. Exporting in this fashion also makes the resultant PDF unsearchable. I can't find any configuration options for this. Is there a fix?
  20. I have version 1.17  .. and when I tried to import a file from a friend, I got this instead: Is there anything higher than V1.17? 
  21. NA5 Screen Locks Up

    I have multiple NA Screens on a control system and they are arbitrarily locking up.  The screen becomes distorted and unresponsive.  It has happened at least three times on different screens.  The only way to resolve the issue is to disconnect then reconnect power.  Has anyone seen this issue? Is it a known issue?  The controller is an NJ5.

  23. Dialog File Browsing

    Hello, I am looking for a way to use the OpenFileDialog in VB to be able to select a recipe file to import. I read this forum: and thought that maybe I could access the OpenFileDialog function from the code, but System.Windows.Forms namespace is unavailable.  Is there any other way to access the dialog box to let the user select a file? I am using Sysmac Studio with an NA5 series HMI. Thank you for your help.
  24. Has anyone been able to produce screenshots of an NA project via File/Print menu option on Sysmac Studio? All this does for me is produce an image of a page showing objects or controls on the page itself, but it does not include anything from pages that are setup as 'background' for the page. This makes producing documentation a real pain. Am I missing something? Thanks for any help.
  25. Hi, I'm working on a projects where i need the button text to be dynamic.(assigned by a string variable) i have not been able to figure out how to accomplish this easily. I made a workaround with placing a label over the button and have the label refer to a string, but it would be soo much easier and smoother to just have the button text assigned a variable. I would think i could access the the text field through code ,like: Btn_1.Text=My_Btn_String_1, but have had no luck with this. Would Greatly appreciate any help. Thanks, Frank.
