  1. Good day everyone, As everyone knows, NB designer is not as good as CX-designer in general terms. My case is this one:  All systems at my company use NS series and some of them NT series PT's.  So there're 20 of them, or so.  Now, I have bought a new NB5Q-TW00B, and I need to program it. Is it possible to migrate the program from a NT or NS, to a NB ??  I've read you have to design all the project again.  It'd take value time just to copy the same project.  I think it should, because it's the same brand of Operator Panel, Omron.   Thanks.
  2. I'm using TM221CE40T PLC with TM3DI16 DI extension. I'm programming it using SoMachine Basic. In the program I implemented a counter (%C0). I've read in the documentation that %Ci.V stores the current count value. I want that to display this value on a Magelis HMIS5T. How could I store the current count value (%Ci.V)? Thanks in advance!
  3. hey!  I'm pretty new to PLC's, and I'm supposed to ''teach'' the people at my internship how this PLC works, but I have encountered a problem.  I've gotten pretty far with all the digital programming and understanding how everything works, but I just can't figure out how the analog inputs/outputs and programming works...... I've had a fair explaination on PID and how this works. I've searched the web as well to figure out what PLC instructions to use.    I hope you can answer my following questions.    1, what are the most used PLC instruction blocks which I can use for temperature control, and how am I supposed to use them? 2, Could you please give me an example on how to use PID and what numbers will I need for the calculations? 3, what are the most used PLC Instruction blocks (apart form the analog ones) that I should include in my tutorial?   this is my setup: Ethernet switch MOXA EDS-205 Plc voeding PA202 PLC CPU CJ1MCPU11-ETN Digital IN (16x) CJ1W-ID211 (SL) Digital IN (16x) CJ1W-ID211 (SL) Analog IN (8x) CJ1W-AD081 (SL) Analog IN (8x) CJ1W-AD081 (SL) TRANS OUT (16x) CJ1W-OD212 (SL) TRANS OUT (16x) CJ1W-OD212 (SL) Analog OUT (4x) CJ1W-DA041 (SL)   thank you soo much for looking at my question and considering helping me! the OMRON helpdesk hasn't been very helpfull.    kind regards,    Deuslupos,
  4. NQ Design and CX-Programmer

    Hello! My name is Gabriela. First, I do not speak very good English. I have to do a project! I have a HMI (NQ3- TQ000B) to OMRON for a teaching platform. I installed NQ Designer for it. I did the program in CX-Programmer . But I have a misunderstanding. How can I connect the CX with NQ . How can I assign internal bits set from CX-Programmer in buttons from NQ-Designer? In the end, I would like that after I connected bits with buttons and I transferred the program to HMI, when I push the button on the HMI interface, the platform to do what I programmed in cx.
  5. Can't open *.GTW

    Hi all, I have project and I saved as compressed file. But, I open in other PC again, it can't open and alarm as image attach. If any person have same problem and have solve, pls share it for me. Thanks and best regards!
  6. Hello there. I have connected wireless module (master) to Vijeo Citect 7.4 using RS-485 to USB converter. My slave modules are supplied power from gird/generator and the master module is supplies from a UPS.    I'm reading Modbus registers of slaves modules data via wireless master. Every time we have a power failure from grid, I get #BAD from all slave addresses. The generator kicks off within 30 sec. That is the slaves are off for 30 sec. Even after the slaves are powered on, SCADA does not poll data from it until I restart the SCADA.    My current MODBUS parameters are:   Inittype = 3, TimeOut = 3000, WatchTime = 10, Retry = 2. Could you please assist me on which parameters to change in .ini so that SCADA reads Modbus registers of slave for more than 30 sec.   I tried increasing TimeOut to 30000 but it couldn't solve the problem. I would appreciate if some one could help me out.   Thanak you in advance.

  11. Dear friends. I faced one problem of recipe working. Could somebody help me? I try to create recipe and use it in my program. Fisrt of all I decided to learn how it working and for this I used documentation NB-Designer Operation Manual. I created my test program, but it doesn't work as I need. Bellow I want to describe, what I need: I want to have 5 program with 4 parameters and download these program with parameters inside to the PLC. In attachment you can see my program. test.zip
  12. I am struggling with the following problem: We have a Momentum PLC running with a project downloaded from Concept 2.6. When I make a small change into the project and I download the change to PLC there seems to be no problem. But when I try to run a visualisation project in Vijeo Look then after any click in visualisation the yellow triangles with red crosses appear over every object on the screen. We run OFS to enable communication between PLC and Vijeo Look. We use non-allocated variables in the project and probably the Visualisation does not work well with those unallocated variables after project changes. Can someone please describe steps which need to be taken to compile or upload a Concept project so that it works well in Vijeo Look with unallocated variables?
  13. I have an interesting problem. On my NQ HMI, I am changing one bit of the alarm word to true. The first time I do this, one alarm becomes active, and appears in my alarm list on my HMI. Then when I change the bit back to zero, the alarm becomes inactive. Then when I make the bit true again, the alarm does NOT become active again. Nor does a new alarm appear at the top of the list. What do I need to do to make a fresh alarm appear in the list? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  14. Where can I safely download NQ designer? Thanks in advance.
  15. Hi Guys I'm new to Omron PLC's and the NB HMI series terminals. I have a question regarding the status of a currently logged in user. What memory area bit can I check to see if a user is actually logged in ? Secondly, where can I find a document that shows the memory areas and any system words/bits ? I found bits and pieces here and there but nothing that shows the memory area layout in full. Regards Steve
  16. Omron CJ1M-CPU13-ETN to .NET Framework

    Hello People, In my school we had an assignment to program a Sorting machine using an Omron PLC and CX-Programmer. Now we got the assignment to make an HMI that we can open on our own computer (Windows 8.1) so that we can control various things of our program, such as reading and writing bits, and other data (To the PLC obviously). Now I only have very little experience in reading and writing data from a PLC (Using a PC), I have used the libnodave library to connect to a Siemens S7-300 PLC. With this I managed to read and write bits, and also read and write data to a DataBlock. We wrote this program in Visual Basic 2013 using the .NET Framework with the libnodave library as an added extension. Now I have searched far and wide on the internet but have not come across any good examples of how to do this with an Omron PLC. So I hoped that I could get some advice from you guys. What I'm asking is if anybody here has maybe a link to a guide/ example program/ manual that could get me forward? And if I can easily get this done with Visual Basic, by adding an extension, could anybody tell me which extension this would be? And where I could find it? I appreciate any help. :D Thanks in advance, BitsNBytesRookie
  17. Hi everyone, Im quite new into OPCs, I'm using adam 4015 6channel RTD module to measure temperatures and then connected to adam 4520, I would like to know how to connect the adam modules to cx designer (or if have to make any program in cx programmer) as i want to have a GUI of the temperature measurement. Thanks in advance
  18. I know that I can printScreen screens one by one from the offline test in NB Designer. I was wondering if there was a way to automatically save-as-JPGs all screens in a project? (Just like you can do in CX Designer.)
  19. I'm new to Omron, and after several days of diving into manuals trying to figure this out on my own and giving myself a headache I've come to accept that i need help. my task is the following: Control of the discrete and analog inputs/outputs in a DeviceNet system using an Omron CJ1M PLC’s and PT’s. Use at least one thermocouple, one analog input, and one analog output for the DeviceNet network. Use a pushbutton and a light for the start of the process and an indicator for the started process. I have a Drt1-Ad04 input, a Drt1-ad02 output, and a Drt1-ts04t temperature control. My devicenet is Cj1w-drm21, The Omron system itself is a cj1m-cpu13 etn21. I have node addresses for my input, outputs and temperature control, those being 35 for input, 25 or 30 for output and for temperature control 5, 15, or 20. The ip address im using for this project is 142.214.143.9I'm using Cx programmer, Designer and Integrator. On Cx programmer I've managed to create an IO table but i have no idea on how to begin the program or even get a current reading from my generator.On Designer I've made what i believe to be the layout of the pushbuttons, I just have no idea of what addresses to enter.And on integrator i'm having troubles on figuring out how to make a routing table. I've went through many manuals and either i'm missing something really basic here or I just have no idea on what I'm doing. The only advice I was given was to dive into more manuals and find my addresses for my inputs, outputs, and temperature or to find the information from an outside source be that a forum or customer service. I am able to provide more information, and screenshots of what I have done if needed. Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
  20. I have one project on which the offline test works nicely. However if I "Save as" and give it another name, the offline test stops working. I click on offline test, the loading hourglass appears for a few seconds, then nothing happens... Does anyone know why, and/or how to get offline test working again? I am running NB Designer version 1.3. I always compile before trying the offline test.
  21. Hello all, I am trying to download a new program to a AB 1746-BAS SLC 500 BASIC board via RS-232 connection through a Windows 98 laptop running Hyperterminal. While the BASIC board is connected I verify connection by waiting for the board to print out its information in the Hyperterminal program and then enter "CLEAR", "NEW" and finally, "LIST" in Hyperterminal to wipe any program from the board and verify the board is clean respectively. Then I load the new program via a .TXT file using the "Send Text File" option within the Hyperterminal program. After the program has finished loading I than type "LIST" to verify it has copied over correctly. I than switch the SLC over to "Program Mode" via the key. After doing so I type "RAM" to select the program i just uploaded to the BASIC board and then type "PROG" in the Hyperterminal program. I than receive the "Programming Sequence Failure". If anyone has any advice as to what I am doing wrong it would be greatly appreciated. Below is a list of everything I have set and researched. Thank you in advance, James -Laptop: Windows 98, Hyperterminal -BASIC board (programming): JW1 pin: 1-2 3-4 JW2 pin: 1-2 3-4 JW3 pin: 1-3 2-4 JW4 pin: 5-6 3-4 -RS-232 9-pin connector: Pin 2 connected to Tx Pin 3 connected to RX Pin 5 connected to ground Pins (4/6) crossed DSR/DTR Pins (7/8) crossed RTS/CTS -Hypterminal: Direct Com1 bits per second: 1200 parity: none stop bits: 1 Flow control: Xon/Xoff Settings/properties: -> Emulation VT100 -> ASCII line/character delay: 30 milliseconds check box: Append line check box: Wrap lines... -Manuals: 1746-rm001 1746-pm001
