  1. Proficy Machine Edition 9.0

    Good Morning. My name is Eduardo Irizarry, I am writing from Puerto Rico. I bought the program Proficy Machine Edition 9.0 and despite having downloaded all the documentation related to the program and have followed the instructions; I could not get the timers to work. I need you to please guide me on how to set the timers. The controller I am using is the Versamax IC200UDR164. Thank you, good day.
  2. Brewing station

    OK so this is driving me nuts, because I had this whole program just about finished and working fine, until I deleted it  Now I don't remember how I did it, if could just get past step 2 in the attached "Scope" I'd be fine and could do the rest myself, I'm kindof a beginner to ladder logic and I'm using RSLogix 5000     SCOPE.docx
  3. Programmatic Timer/Delay

    Howdy, Wasn't sure the best place to post this Programmatic Timer/Delay question. I need to create a Timer whose 'time' will change programmatically. I am having trouble coding this in RSLogix/Studio 5000. I need to delay a little more every time 1 Product passes through up to a certain count then reset and start over. Basically during a conveyor transition, via a pop=up conveyor, I don't want the product in the same place every time. I want each successive product to be in a little bit different spot, call it the Conveyor Land Point. The product will land a little further each product, then start back at the first land point I have no code to share as all attempts were FAILs Inputs: > Product Count (Count up or down counter) > Product Count Cycle (Number, constant, set able, currently = 4) > Delay Time Sequence Interval (Number, constant, set able, currently = 0.25 seconds) Outputs: A sequencing delay, based on Product Count > Delay Sequence:  1st delay 1 second. 2nd delay 2 seconds, ... up to Product Count Cycle (4) then reset back to 1. Program: (As I was thinking) Set Product Count Cycle, Product Count Cycle = 4 (May change could be 3,4,5, or 6) (Might be hard code, might be an HMI input) Set Delay Time Sequence = 0.25 seconds (May change could be 0.5, 0.75, 1.0 etc.) (Might be hard code, might be an HMI input) Line start, Product Count at one (1) Calculate Delay     Delay   = Delay Time Sequence Interval * Product Count Cycle * Product Count  Product Count increments via PE Repeat e.g. Hopefully I have not 'run' at the mouth, wanted to give as much info upfront                I included a picture Any thoughts, help would be great. thanks,
  4. Factorytalk Historian SE Timer

    Hi, I am looking for help on creating a simple timer tag on Factory talk historian se. I want to start the timer tag (in seconds) when my machine is not running, once the machine starts i want the tag to reset. The digital source tag is the machine on/off tag from the PLC.   I have played around with the Totalizers in PI system Management tools but i have not got it to work correctly Thanks in Advance,   Ronan
  5. Program 16 position rotary selector switch

    I have a 16 position rotary selector switch I'm trying to program to a CQM1 PLC, that I will also be programming to a micrologix 1200 in the future, using CX Programmer. The switch connects to the PLC using 4 inputs, and activates the inputs in a binary pattern 0-16 as I turn the switch. For example: if the switch is wired to the first four inputs of the PLC, and is turned to "9" 0.0 and 0.3 will be activated and 0.1 and 0.2 will not, just like binary 9 = 1001. I have tried several things trying to get the PLC to accept these inputs as a single "data-point," and then convert to BCD or Hex to use in a timer. I'm having no luck! Does anyone have any ideas how this is done? The switch is a Tosoku DPP01 015L20RCB, and because of the age of the PLC my instruction set is limited. Thank you in advance!
