  1. Hi, In conception phase we currently use GXWorks to upload programs to PLC (L-Series). In production mode, for different security reasons we would like to automate this transfer so that the operator does not access directly to the program. Do you know any tool allowing this by using command lines and not GXWorks UI ? (GXWorks does not seem to be "command line" friendly As a POC I  have automated the GXWorks UI in C#  (by simulating menu or buttons clicks) but I don't find it reliable (what if an unexpected popup "pops" ? ). PS : I am a totally noob in this PLC world so maybe I missed stg in the docs ... 
  2. recover program from plc-5/15

    A machine was bought at auction which included PLC-5/15 module.  It did not come with a backup of the program.  Our maintenance technician said the program would not load and turned the module over to me (IT).  I notice the battery was installed in '92 so am assuming the program is lost.  Is their any internal memory or last ditch effort i can attempt to recover the program from this module?
  3. Multiple branch

    Hi Guys! You can read my problem below, if anybody can help, please do it. Thank you. So, I have 4 knife. You can set the cutting width for each knife separately. The problem is, there is a lot of size. There is an example: No1 size:  #1: 20 mm, #2: 25mm, #3: 30mm, #4: 25mm   (#1=Knife1.......)                                       No2 size: #1: 22mm, #2:24mm, #3: 32mm, #4: 27mm What is make the problem more difficult is There are plenty of type code too. Like X1, X2, X3, Y1, Y2, Y3 ..... This is the main material code. and you can choose the belogging size. So you can select for X1 to No1 or No2 ... but you can select for X2 to No1 or No2 or any sizegroup you want. I can solve it with a lot programming, like deal every possible situation ... but there is a lot time .... :S  There is a touch panel where you can set the values.  Anybody have another idea for this problem ?    
  4. We have a QSeries PLC. Q25HCPU. We also have a PLC program. We found that the address registers (also known as device addresses) attain a z-value added next to it - automatically over time. We are not sure why this is the case. Nonetheless, when these values get added (by the PLC - not the engineering software), some of the functions in the PLC doesn't work. We found that by formatting the CPU, and reloading the program, allows for the system to work again (temporarily) for a few weeks, up until this problem occurs again. This problem occurs across various CPUs (eliminating the potential for hardware problems. These z values can be seen when a program comparison is done. (see attached file). The questions become; 1. What is the function of these values? (why does the PLC add them? 2. How can they be permanently removed?

Have a nice day.
  7. 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
  8. Looking for Socket TCP/IP communications program examples for Mitsubishi PLC iQ-R R04CPU using GX Works3, to compliment the Mitsubishi Ethernet manual Socket commands instructions. Unfortunately, the manual is missing real application ladder logic illustration examples of these commands. For example, the Socket Open Connection command, does not describe in what order or format to enter the IP Address.   For example, to enter IP Address 192.168.1.100, does the most significant octet 192 is entered or stored first in the lowest memory storage register (Big Endian format) or does the least significant octet 100 is entered or stored first in the lowest memory storage register (Little Endian format)? I am trying to write a simple Socket TCP/IP communications command that will write about four registers from an existing Mitsubishi PLC R04CPU (Socket Client) to an Allen Bradley PLC ControlLogix (Socket Server). .

  10. I'm using Controllogix L61 redundancy system as a slave with DCS using ethernet tcp/ip socket programming. The communication between master and slave will fail after a switchover. Kindly give solution for this. Thanks and regards, Rasu
  11. CX-Thermo program

    Hello, I am working with e5cc-t programs, for heating application. I need to find a way, to start program, when temperature reaches set-point of first (no. 0) segment. I think that, there should be some kind of setting, but i cant found it.. I've done this with PLC, but this is not an solution for this application. in conclusion: After program starts, it has to reach set point temp, and then hold temperature for certain time.  
  12. Hello, is there a way, to edit E5CC-T temperature controller internal program, using CP1L-EM PLC, connected to temperature controller via rs-485 communication? I can't find any information about doing it. I know that i cat change these programs, using CX-Thermo, but that is not an option. I need to do that, using only PLC..

  15. I'm making this thread, continuing from my previous one (Newbie Screwed Up) where I received tremendous help from those on this forum.    I now have the AB 5/04 working, but the Panel Mate 1700 doesn't seem to communicate with the 504.  The HMI connected to this brick is a Cutler Hammer Panel Mate Pro 1700.  It lights up,  the touch-screen buttons somewhat react to touching (might take a few strokes to react), but the functions do not react with the 5/04.  I called the equipment manufacturer, and they basically said it is all obsolete equipment, no longer supported, etc. and we are SOL. But, for a mere $100K, we can send the unit back, and they'll install all "modern" control units !! Not an option.   I get it that the unit is 10+ years old, but has very low cycle times on it.  (maybe 400 hrs)   It's my understanding that the  HMIs are just that....a means of the operators telling the PLC what you want it to do. So, my question .... is there an off the shelf software package that would emulate the Panel Mate 1700?  All I need to "control"  is to advance or retard two sets of heat seal rollers (via PacSci stepper motors), actuate two separate hole punch solenoids, and an air solenoid for a knife....it's basically a packaging machine.  I do have a program called PMConfig , but I don't see any communications buttons or icons in that software, just screen shots of what shows up on the HMI, icon selection, change fonts / colors, etc.  So, I'm looking for a resolution to make new(er) HMI (or even just a cheap a$$ laptop)  with affordable software, and easy interface to communicate with the now functioning 5/04.  Thanks for the input.
  16. Trouble Wiring a Simple LED with a Micro820 Controller

    Hi everyone, Recently, I started working with the Micro820 Controller Embedded I/O. My project is simple : when the output _IO_EM_DO_00 is set to true, an LED light turns on. But, even though it's super simple, I can't make it work. Here's my setup. If you need more information, feel free to ask anything !

  18. Hi Here's a question I'm about to ask Omron.. as soon as I can figure out who to ask.. It's complicated asking support.. their web email form doesn't make complex questions easy. Here's the question: Can the NJ CPU program a LinMot linear motor to make the "Random Sea"? The NJ has a mixed protocol.. Ethernet/IP and EtherCAT (CoE),  and claims to be a "Motion Controller".    I doubt Motion Control is available on it's Ethernet/IP line.. but the EtherCAT might be another story.   Certainly The Omron NJ is a Motion Controller for Omron NJ series drives.. However, how well does it work with LinMot? Here's the curve.  Imagine a LinMot Linear motor continuously moving, never really stopping, following a real-time, mathematically generated curve, moving positive then negative, at random frequencies and random amplitudes. Almost never repeating a motion sequence. looks something like this: Yet, after a while the motion history fully represents the spectral distribution of energy on the surface of the ocean. Spectrum analyzers can display it, and mathematics can define it..  I just have to make that sea in a model scale…    (Time scales by the square root of the scale factor) And keep the water in the tank: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQd6YzBWVvI The big question is: Can the Omron NJ get a LinMot Linear Motor to do this? … LinMot thinks YES.. but, isn’t sure. Yes there are ways to “connect" LinMot to The NJ.. EtherCAT (CoE), Ethernert/IP but… there is nothing in the LinMot drive that can create or store a predesigned Random Sea .. Only a Motion Controller, generating real time motion commands, by running  mathematical equations, "on the fly” can do that.   If the NJ is a true “Motion Controller”, and the LinMot C1250-DS-XC is implemented as an “axis” by Symac Studio, which it is…       Then, there may be hope. Closed loop, PID feedback remains with the LinMot drive, with special settings in LinMot Talk … Homing might have to be done with the NJ .. or by Digital I/O’s What do the Omron experts out there think?  Can this be done? Thanks much, Regards, Michael
  19. Socket communication with Micro820

    Hi everyone ! I have a little project wich involves communication between two Micro820 controllers via TCP/IP. To do that, I started to work with TCP/IP socket. Within CCW (Connected Components Workbench), I tried to create a new socket instance using the instruction SOCKET_CREATE and set the socket address to 127.0.0.1:21. Basically, my computer through the FTP port. The problem was that it couldn't create a new socket instance (error variable is set to TRUE and status is set to 4, wich I don't know the meaning) because I didn't have a server-side application that listens to TCP/IP socket requests. That said, I found an open source application called SocketTest that listens for TCP/IP socket requests on a specified IP address and port. So, I started a listener on the following address : 127.0.0.1:21, but the error variable is still set to TRUE and status is still set to 4. So, my questions are : Is my IP address OK ? Is my port number OK ? What means the status code 4 ? Is SocketTest doing what I think it does ? Do I need to do something else before using the SOCKET_CREATE instruction ? Thank you in advance for your help !
  20. Can't connect to Micro820 controller via CCW

    Hi everybody, Recently, I started working on a project. I want to develop a program for a Micro820 controller (2080-LC20-20AWB) using CCW (Connected Components Workbench). I built a little motor circuit for testing purpose. However, after building the program and downloading it to the controller, I tried to connect to my controller via CCW, but I can't. When I click the button "Connect", CWW crashes OR a window saying : "The controller has unnacepted changes" appears and asks me if I want to "Download current project to the controller" (wich I already did) or "Upload the project in the controller to overwrite current project content" (wich is grayed out). When I choose to "Download current project to the controller", CCW starts downloading the resource, but fails. In the "Output" window, there's a line saying : "Download failed for Device:Micro820: An error occured while reading from GETACTIVERESOURCELIST.". The problem is that there's no documentation at all concerning this error. I even tried to reinstall CCW, but it didn't fix the problem. I joined some images so you guys can see what I'm talking about. Don't mind asking for more details !

  22. TCP_IP_connection

    I. Developed new application   TCP_IP_Connection 1. App TCP_IP_Connection     applies the technology of IoT, Smart Home, Remote control.    It allows to carry out: - remote control and monitoring of control systems; - remote diagnostics of  the object; - turn on/off sensors and devices, including electrical circuits,   hydraulics, pneumatics, etc.; - transfer  information, files and images between smartphones and computers   implemented the application. For communication between the respective devices (smartphones or computers) are required only stable connection to the Internet  !!! The application is developed according to the technology MQTT and use free  Internet broker. As a broker use the HiveMQ broker. The application consists of   3 parts : - TCP_IP_connection.apk - works on the smartphone and is intended for control and      monitoring of equipments; - Server_Send_Receive.exe - the management server located  on the computer and   execution  action on the transfer of  information from the smartphone to the   controller and   back; - Server_controller.exe - located on the  same computer and execution tasks   of  controller. Communication is linked directly with the controller via Ethernet or     Ethernet/IP. As the controller for management purposesused controller family   OMRON (CS1,CJ1,CJ2,CP1H,CP1L...). Note. As a controller you can use the other type of controllers, for example, Yaskawa, Siemens, ABB and  other. They require rework program Server_controller.exe only to  interface of exchange with controller. So for Yaskawa controller family 2300Siec this interface already developed and used in industrial conditions. 2. The application includes the following controls: A. Smartphone – computer - controller. - modes  read/write of memory cells and  bits of the controller OMRON      (DM,W,EM,CIO,HR); - continuous cyclic polling of the memory areas; - the formation of Alarms in the event of errors of control system; - Display Gauges for 6 variables in real time; - Display Scopes for 6 variables in real time; - formation of statistical data on the operation of the equipment. B. Smartphone - computer. - sending  and receiving text  messages; - sending and receiving  picture image; - transfer photos from a smartphone;  - transfer images from built-in Web camera of the laptop; - reading the contents of a directory on the computer or laptop; - reading contents of a text file. С. Smartphone -smartphone / computer - computer. - sending and receiving text messages; - sending and receiving of picture image; - transfer photos from smartphone to smartphone (from computer to computer); - send the image with the built in webcam of a laptop to another laptop; - reading the contents of a directory on the computer or laptop; - reading contents of a text file. 3. Work application Server_Send_Receive.exe and Server_Controller.exe tested on computers running the Windows 7 operating system. Work application TCP_IP_Connection.apk was tested on smartphones Samsung, Phillips  running the operating system Android 5.0, Android 6.0. It requires the use of a smartphone with a display diagonal of 5 inches and more. 4. App TCP_IP_Connection.the apk  paid, the cost per user is $ 5 USA. Distributed through Google Play. The Internet address for downloading of  programs Server_Send_Receive.exe and Server_Controller.exe is on screen Help  application TCP_IP_Connection.apk.  OMRON_Communication has the manual in Russian and  English languages. The Internet address for downloading the full manual   https://yadi.sk/i/F_EJOQEd3G5sXc. Looking for partners for the execution of similar works.
