  1. Hi everyone, I'm trying to connect a computer to a SLC 5/04 via the RS232 interface without success. The same module has been running and connecting/programming via the round DH+ connector just fine. So when I start it up now, I can put it into run mode, DH+ LED blinking. The problem is I can't establish the RS232 connection, first time ever I work with a PLC... I've used two different computers with RSLinx and RSLogix500 installed, one with a proper COM port, one with a USB adapter. When I define a new driver in RSLinx the Auto-Configure gives the error message in the attached picture. I'm using a standard COM port cable plus a F/F gender switcher. Both checked with a multimeter, no twisting or switching of contacts going on. One problem is I don't even know if the RS232 LED is supposed to be active as soon the cable connects the PLC and the computer, or only if there is an active data transfer. So I don't know if the actual connection is at fault, or if I'm doing something wrong in the software.   Any tip would be greatly appreciated!   Volker

  3. Connect PLC to Kepserver

    I have Delta 12SA2 PLC it has RS232 port and I have connected it to kepserver (by Modbus serial) and then factory IO Now my problem is that when I connect my PLC to kepserver the RS232 port becomes busy with the kepserver and not available in the ISPSoft and therefore I could not demonstrate factory io and my logic in run mode in the isp soft together like you do in your videos. My PLC don't have ethernet port but is there an option in kepserver or any way by which i can use the same serial port of the PLC in isp soft run mode and kepserver+factory io together so that I can simultaneously show the logic running in isp soft and application working in factory io to my students. I googled a lot and found some softwares which make virtual serial ports for a given serial port but they don't work and soon hang Please help me I am in a great need of it. Thanks in advance.

  9. Is it possible to use FX3U-485ADP-MB as a serial port to send and receive user defined string/data to and from a computer? I have a FX3U-32M PLC and two FX3U-485ADP-MB adapters. I have been using PLC with one adapter as Modbus Master. Now i want to use both adapters, where one will be Modbus Master as usual and the other I want to use to send and receive data to and from computer terminal (Example - Realterm). I have a third party 232/485 converter which works really well. Lets me just describe my requirement straight forward. I want to display process parameters on a windows computer based user interface (UI) and also set some variables in PLC from the same UI. The UI has access to serial ports of computer.
  10. Omron CJ1m - bluetooth connect

If I want read CIO 10 i sent: "0101B000000A" ? and FCS and "*" ?? how i calculate FSC? Is it XOR my data sent? 
  11. GS2107-WTBD and rs232 input

    We are upgrading our A900 GOTs (finally) and I'm looking into updating our key switches to rfid readers. Does anyone know of a good rs232 rfid reader to pair with a GS2107 GOT Simple? Also if anyone has had luck with scripting for security levels and could post a sample (be it GOT1000/2000) it would be awesome sauce.
  12. I'm trying to understand the basics of using a serial to ethernet converter such as this Comtrol DM-EIP-2101, with Studio5000 code. Basically I have a weighing machine that only outputs data via RS-232 and I need to send that data to a PC that will process it through a Studio5000 program and have the data displayed on an HMI using FTview SE. Is it as simple as just connecting the serial and ethernet to the converter and it does all the work? Obviously checking ip addresses and firmware will need to be verified. The main thing I am unsure of is the process of passing the individual data packets from the machine to the Logix code on the PC,  things like what the weight of the item was, was it over weight or under, etc....  Would there be an AOI or tags built into the software for a machine like this Checkweigher? I've worked with much smaller items like Cognex Dataman cameras and I know you can just use their AOI that allows you to simply call a tag if you want to display information like if a scanned barcode was correct or whatever. If anyone has done something similar I'd appreciate any guidance. It can be difficult getting the information from the manufactures so I'm looking for answers anywhere I can. EDIT: I guess I should also clarify that only using one or the other (serial or E/IP) is not an option. It will be a serial connection from the Weighing machine to the converter and then Ethernet to the PC.

  17. G9SP Configurator

    I am at a client site that has a line with multiple Omron G9SP-N20S safety controllers installed and I need to make a modification to the system.  I tried to install the Omron Configurator and it asks for a serial number, and will not install without one.  Omron said that it is on the CD that ships with the unit, but the equipment manufacturer did not supply any of the CDs.  The only Omron solution is to order a replacement CD, that will take 5 days, which is 5 days too long as there is a hard stop in 2 days.  I have tried entering numbers found on the controller, with no success.  Does anyone have a better way, special contacts at Omron, to et it faster?

  23. Hello every one. I have three FX3U plc needed to be communicate over a wireless network. I'm using serial adapter FX3U-485ADP. I got E-byte data trans reciver E-30 for wireless communication. Now need help to setup the whole thing. Previously the PLC's serial connectors were connected through a flexible bus but when the platforms are running fast there is interruption in the  communication. So we want those PLC's to be connected over wifi.  Thanks in Advance 
  24. Here is a link to a thread on a recent post showing how to communicate serially to an Omron PLC using VB.Net. This uses the Omron Host Link serial protocols. (C-Mode Commands) It will read 10 DM registers and display them on the form.   http://accautomation.ca/implementing-the-omron-host-link-protocol-vb-net/ Here is the source program that can be downloaded.

  25. PC-PLC CP1E - USB-to-SERIAL cable

    Hi,   I have a self-bought usb-serial cable converter for CP1E. Currently can't connect to my PLC using PC. CX-One says "Failed to the PLC". I am supposedly to use "SYSMAC WAY" as my Network Type in PLC settings?   EDIT: The CPU type is N30   I've checked the following settings: 1) COM number is correct ( as checked from windows Device Manager side) 2) Cable driver is installed, there is no "unknown" driver in my windows Device Manager 3) My RS232C LED in PLC is not lighted up.   Any other suggestions to check settings ive missed out would help, other than buying a new cable for the moment.   Regards, Summerstone
