  1. So I need to find a way for a Mitsubishi PLC to communicate with a PC - ideally sending a binary number through ethernet to a PC program that reads it and tells the PC which files to open. I think I can create the PC program with C++ or Visual Basic without too much struggle. But I am unsure of how to get that binary ID from the PLC and into the PC program. I have done a little bit of research on MX Component and MX Sheet, and also MC Protocol but all seem a bit outdated and/or just over my head and I need some better explanation - I'm pretty new to PLC and programming. I feel like it shouldn't be terribly difficult to get 1 external binary number into a PC program. I'm sure someone has done essentially the same transfer and I just want some ideas. -What kind of connection support do I need to transfer data (Likely just a D-bit) from a PLC to PC? -How would that/those bit(s) be accessed in Visual Basic or C++? I'm assuming some type of library function that will call the value

  3. indradrive problem

    Hi gays. I have a problem with my indradrive when I try to jog a Rexroth MSK motor. Indradrive: HCS02 (Basic Universal, single axis), control unit: CSB01.1C-SE-ENS-EN1-L1-S-NN-FW     &      power unit: HCS02.1E-W0012-A-03-NNNN Servo motor: MSK100B-0200-NN-S1-BP0-NNNN For joging (testing the motor in closed loop servo just with pc), I think need to run easy startup mode under the commissioning tab of indraworks software. (or am I wrong?) I connected the drive  via serial interface (out of the drive X2 connector) to my pc, and connected the drive to motor encoder port (out of the drive X8 connector).  I power on the drive (via X13) and go to easy startup mode, I face an "F3130 Error when checking input signals" alarm which I can not clear till now. referring to online help  I find some remedies declares that the problem arise from wiring. I tried to examine X41 connector with supplying 24v to it in various situations. but the mentioned alarm is resisting. anyone can help?

  6. 90 30 CPU350 serial connection

    ok running into a issue here, so we were able to communicate with the processor to download a program. transfer went fine. upon cycling power, we can no longer connect to processor. we used LM90 for the software. i've tried removing the battery and shorting out the "mem clear" points on the board, however we can no longer communicate with the CPU. we have a POWER and OK light solid on the power supply. kinda stumped here if anyone has any insight.
  7. Good day, I have Mitsubishi SN 18xxxxx with new firmware 1.111 and attached FX5-ENET/IP module to communicate with SMC EX260-SEN1, have you any example how send data into SMC over Ethernet/IP? Thanx for reply

  9. Good day, I am new in mitsubishi and have a question about how build built in ethernet communication on fx5u fw 1.050 gx3 1.047 with smc ex260 sen1, where i need send 2 bytes and receive 4 bytes can u help me? I try to send data with this format 2#0000000100000001 and send by Ethernet Active Tcp connection library where I have added the external device configuration ip and port SMC EX260 SEN1, I think I needed use a CIP protocol and port 44818 or Ethernet/ip, maybe I need add a ENET module to use this communication between my devices? Thanks a lot for answers
  10. I have a bit of an issue with communication between GOT1000 HMI (I think the exact model is GOT1675V) and Q03UDE PLC over Ethernet. The GOT is set to 192.168.1.4 and PLC is set to 192.168.1.2 but I get the error "Communication Error. Refer to System Alarm in Utility Menu". Now how do I access the utility menu? I have tried to tap and hold on the upper corners of the HMI but nothing happens. I also can not switch between screens when I press buttons even though they are directly linked via screen #. Almost like the HMI froze up. Wonder if anyone had similar issue and what the solution might be. Thanks for your help.
  11. Direct Logic 05 Ethernet

    I have a control that I want to use a Direct logic 05 plc in.  It is a really simple program but it is going into a plant that has a main control panel that runs the plant.  I dont know the brand of the plc in the main control.  They want to be able to send me a command from their plc to the direct logic to turn on my unit.  I suppose that would mean a simple set instruction to my plc.  I also have a couple alarm conditions that I want to send them.  For example if water pressure is to low I would put my unit in the alarm mode and send them a low water signal.  If the chemical is low likewise,   I dont have a clue how to do this in my program.  Can anyone give me some examples in direct logic plc program for making this happen??? Thank you Thank you Thank you. MikeC

    Hi, does anyone has program example of ethernet communication between FX5U (GX Works 3) and A1SJ71QE71N3-T (GX IEC Developer). I need to read and write in both directions. Thanks
  14. I was wondering if I can use the ethernet and the rs232 interface at the same time with two different devices. A computer with RSLinx on the ethernet and and Arduino RS232 on the RS232 with DF1?
  15. Hello. I am trying to make a serial RS 232C connection between Schneider Magelis HMIGXU3512 and Omron PLC CP1E. However, there seems to be a communication problems between both of the equipment. I am using cable XBT Z9740 for the serial communication cable. The format used is 8.2.N for both equipment. The baud rate is 115200. No Flow Rate is choose. Anyone can help with this kind of problems?
  16. 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.
  17. Is it possible to setup Ethercat parameters from within the PLC program?  I am facing a situation where a machine is going to have changeable tooling fixtures and each fixture is going to have an EtherCAT device on it.  I am guessing they will need to be setup to look like the same node to the PLC, but they will have different physical IDs and different settings for some of the parameter fields.  They will be the same device so they will have the same parameter fields, just different values in those fields. I can also get these devices with EthernetIP as the fieldbus option.  In that case I would always have a network error because the PLC would always see one of the devices missing from the network.  is it possible to enable/disable Ethernet connections from within the program logic to avoid the error?
  18. I have a fx5u plc connected to 2 keyence sr 1000 qr code scanners using plc link. On random times the plc error light will light up and all ethernet connection will be disconnected and i cannot connect to the plc with gx works 3. If i put the plc in stop mode tho i can connect to the plc. I do not know what error code is causing this because each time i connect the error code is missing. The problem starts when the plc is in run mode. Can anyone help me with this as this is a persistent bug that keeps on happening in my system?
  19. Hi I am using a P342020 together with a HMID642 Magelis Panel. Using Unity Pro I have successfully downloaded a program to the CPU via USB. The HMI Panel powers up into 'Initial Start Mode' and is asking me to 'Download the system from your editor.' How is this done? How should the ethernet connections be made? between PC (with Unity Pro and Vijeo), M340 and HMI panel and where do I set all the IP addresses? I guess there is documentation somewhere but couldn't find it...! Regards   Andy
  20. Good Day, I am seeing intermittent bUs (communication bus) errors on 3 VFD's simultaneously.  These are Yaskawa P1000's with CM092 Industrial Ethernet Cards. There are Stratix 5700 switches between the drives and the Controllogix 1756-L75 CPU.  Happens every day to every week -- intermittent. Reading parameter F6-98, it indicates a 'connection time out'.  I don't understand why I would receive this fault.  IGMP snooping and querier are enabled on all switches, if that matters. I do not have unicast checked but Yaskawa said that didn't matter.  Packet time is 100 milliseconds.  I welcome any input on what might cause this.  One Yaskawa tech said I should set speed to 100 Mbps (now set at 10 Mbps). Any help appreciated.
  21. Hi All  I'm struggling to a PLC using WAGO's e!cockpit software which I am new to.  In the network tab when I click to select "ETHERNET" from the "Scan Settings" area all that comes up is a drop down with "update selection" which does nothing.  As a result I cannot scan for the PLC's on my network. Has anyone got any ideas on this issue.  I'm running on windows 10, could that be a problem?

  24. 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.
