  1. NB DESIGNER Number Input

    Hello,  I done connect HMI NB7W series to PLC CP1E and just using input and output (0,0 and 100,00) and i can send data from weighing scale to PLC CP1E with RS232 communication. My Question is, if i want to send data from HMI NB7W to PLC CP1E but must input the new data first using number input in HMI NB7W, can i send a new data with RS232 communication (like send data from weighing scale to PLC CP1E)? so i can save the new data to memory in CP1E. I use NB Designer Software and CX Programmer software. If possible, can you tell me how to do it?  Thank you Riandanu
  2. Function Block addressing

    Hello all.  I have a program which has 8 function blocks. I recently added extra functionality to one of the programs (not the function blocks). I added the new variables to the global symbols table and added the new code, but when I compiled the new code, the variable addresses in three of the function blocks had changed. This is a problem, because we use memory cassettes to download new versions of code, so when the new version is downloaded to a machine in some far flung part of the world, these variables will be overwritten (they are hours run variable, so are important for servicing purposes).   My understanding is that CX assign's variable addresses in Function Blocks and we have no control over this. Bit if I only added variables to the Global symbol table, why are the FB addresses affected??   Any input appreciated. 
  3. Hey, I recently started trying my hand at creating function blocks. At the moment I'm trying to create a PID function block, however I keep getting this error: "ERROR: Variable does not have enough size." No idea why it does this. Can anyone help?  
  4. Modbus Addressing in Weintek HMI

    Modbus addressing in Weintek HMI to poll data from Temperature sensor through RS485. In my system i have connected Temperature sensor to I/O Scanner has output in terms of RS-485 which directly connected to COM3 Port pin. No. 6 (as Negative) & 9 (as Positive) of HMI (Model No: MT8071iE) and HMI connected to PC via ETHERNET. I want to read temp on HMI screen via MODBUS protocol. So, can you please provide me instruction about addressing of MODBUS register in Easy-Builder Software so can read data of corresponding register. Because when i do compile i got an error like " Device no Response". I hope i will get reply from your side as Fast as possible to overcome this problem. Thank you.
  5. Hello:   I need to link  a lot of variables, pointing to CIO address, like "AT" field, but is a large volume of tags to create, so, I have a chance to assign a memory location to a variable in ST like:  my_tag := %100;  (trying to assign tag address to CIO 100) ? If not, there is a method to import tags from a Excel ?   Thanks.    
  6. Hello. How can I get bit addressing of defined variable in function block? For example: - I define variable type DUINT with name Double_VarI_INT. - I want to get or set one bit out of it (its double word). - If I use Double_VarI_INT.0 I got error. Best regards.
  7. 505 workshop addressing

    Hi,  I'm attempting to convert some old Siemens workshop 505 code to control logix and i have basically no siemens experience at all and i'm confused as to how to tell what actual output card X1 or X2085 is referencing??   same with inputs.   
  8. Hello all, i'm looking at installing a completely new network for our PLC system, using a ring topology. at the same time i would like to incorporate the IP cameras and VOIP into the same network.  each system is on a different sub net, PLC = x.x.1.x, Cameras= x.x.2.x, VOIP= x.x.3.x estimated camera traffic will be 25 Mbps, PLC 10 Mbps, VOIP no more than 1 Mbps  switches would be capable of 100 Mbps  question: managed or un-managed switches? if it is possible to use un-managed without affecting operations then this would be a massive cost saving    please only comment if you have practical experience implementing this  many thanks Dan  
  9. Hello All, I am using Wonderware InTouch 10.0 on Windows 7. It's slightly outdated, but its what we have. I am currently writing a script using the StartApp command to open a particular PDF file with the touch of a button. My script looks like StartApp("C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat Reader DC\Reader\AcroRd32 C:\1.pdf"); The first part of the command runs adobe and the second part of the command opens the particular file "1". What I need to figure out is, how do I insert a variable into a string. For example I have 55 files I may potentially need to open up, all named 1-55. So I need the file I am calling to be a variable inside of the string so I can call it inside of a loop. I do not want to copy and paste this code 55 times, I want to make the file name a variable (tagname that is a memory real between 1 and 55) so I can run it in a loop. I have only been using Wonderware for a month or so now, so If anything is confusing feel free to ask. Thanks!
  10. Selling the drives below. Rapid company expansion came to a halt and our vendor is not offering what we need for reimbursement. Prices shown are already wholesale rated, however, I'm open to negotiating. Numbers spaced between the model number and unit price are quantities that are being sold. Serial numbers can be provided to verify age, but these are all brand new-old stock.

  11. Hi all Does anyone know how or the Tool to use for Exporting Variables from Unity Pro so I can remove the Register base Addressing for Various Tags and insert Direct Addressing I/O to the Alias Of Attribute for those Variables? This then to be Imported back into the project with the New Aliasing in affect. I have spoken to Tech Support and they say there is a tool (Excel Add On) that comes with V11 in a directory called Extras. I cant find the directory lol. He is coming back to me about the tool but could not tell me if this tool will help with the Aliasing I need to do. Thanks in advance for any help or ideas on this.
  12. Hello. I'm trying to use index addressing inside function block.  The command *D200 doesn't work. Is it necessary to use IR0, ID0,... inside function block? Thanks. Best regards
  13. I have L61 with nonvolatile memory installed. The controller will read the program from CF card on power up. The issue is that some variables are lost or not the most up to date values are read from the card since it remembers them as they were last stored on the CF card. So stuff like motor run hours, etc is not up to date. Is there any way I can update these variables or tags on the CF card as they are updated by the process? Or what would be proper way to deal with this issue?
  14. Addressing limit alarm

  15. I'm having a problem creating variable tag array in Citect SCADA V7.40. I looked every possible help, user guide... but no matter how i set array I cannot change value of any element of array beside first one. I configured my variable tag as shown below: Tag name: TestArray I/O Device: Internal (it's an OPC Factory Server) Address: V500[5], %MF4000[5], I2[5], F2[5] (I tried every one of these for REAL or INTEGER type based on user guide/forum posts) Data type: REAL, INTEGER   I tried every one of these but without success. If i try to set value of variable tag array element, example TestArray[1] and TestArray[4], by typing value in Number field (in Citect Runtime) every element of an array is giving me message #ERR, except first one. Other than that in Citect Runtime in All variable tags window, I can see TestArray tag as a single tag, not as an array Note that i'm not using these tags in Cicode but in Graphic Builder / Runtime. I need about about 50 user defined value tags to be sent to SQL DB by SCADA so remote PLC can read those values in order to define state of outputs. I would highly appreciate any kind of help, any tip. Thanks in advance!
  16. CitectScada 7.4 variable tag not working?

    Good day, I'm currently trying out citectSCADA 7.4 as part of my work. I'm currently just learning how it works and am already having problems with the program. I've used several guides on how to use variable tags wherein a DIGITAL variable tag is used to turn a symbol ON and OFF with two push buttons aptly named 'ON' and 'OFF'. I've already used the Express Communication Wizard to create an I/O server named 'IOserver' along with an I/O Device named 'IODev' that uses Disk I/O Device with Citect Generic Protocols. They are all under a cluster named 'Cluster1'. From there I made a variable tag with the tag name 'TEST' with the I/O Device using IODev with the Data Type set to 'Digital'. The address is set to 'D1'. Equipment, Item Name, Comment, Eng Zero Scale and Eng Full Scale are left empty. From there I went to the Citect Graphics Builder and made two buttons and a symbol icon. In the Symbol Set Properties under the appearance tab I used the 'on/off' option with the ON symbol when coding area I typed 'TEST=1'. In the push button properties under the Input tab. I checked the 'Up' tickbox and in the Up Command coding area I typed 'TEST=1'. I did the same for the other push button except for 'TEST=0'. Running the program under demo mode and pressing the 'on' button and the symbol stays in its OFF state. Is there a solution to my problem?
  17. I have a PLC that i just had to replace the old PLC was an Omron FA-350A the new PLC is a CMP1A-40CDR-A-V1. The programs are almost identical however there are some I/O changes that will need made. I am used to allen bradley PLC's and this is my first time using CX-Programmer. The PLC came preloaded with what was supposed to be the correct program although almost all of the I/O was programmed to the same addresses. I have no idea how the Addresses are structured. Would anyone be able to explain them or point me to a resource. There are also some 200.XX addresses are those bit storage locations? Thank you, Mike
  18. I have never worked with Point IO and wonder how the addressing for inputs and outputs are assigned? Is there a way to tell the PLC what addresses should be used for IO on the remote? I am planning to use the following: 1734-AENT 1734-OW4 1734-OW4 1734-IE4C
