  1. Greetings, so i create project for FX3U in GX Works2. In my program i use function in ST. That function return array with word(signed). I have a warning: ST FOR i_var := 0 TO n_i BY 1 DO TempNumbs := Numbs; TempDevSetsOnPerTime := DevSetsOnPerTime; QueueBySetOn[i_var] := 0; END_FOR; QueueBySetOn[1] := TempNumbs[n_i]; QueueBySetOn[3] := 1; FOR i_var := 0 TO n_i BY 1 DO IF (TempDevSetsOnPerTime[TempNumbs[i_var]] < MaxSetsOnPerTime) THEN QueueBySetOn[0] := TempNumbs[i_var]; QueueBySetOn[3] := 0; EXIT; END_IF; END_FOR; So, it realy funny, GXW cant return int?

  2. Remote IO

    Hi friends , recently i ve been doing some diggings about remote IO cards, in my factory we have a CJ2m PLC and it communicates with remote IO cards with four numbered words (2080.00 , 2080.01, 2080.02....2080.15 ) and there were several dip switches on the IO cards, which were set but i can't understand what was the basis of that settings. So I'd like to know how these dip switches behave and what are the uses of them ?? and how is it possible to have 4 numbered word bits ?? pls help me someone to clarify this, i tried internet, but cudnt help myself !!!  thank you    Here I attach one of the pictures i took of one of the remote input cards.
  3. Hi, I have variable (named var1) with data type 'Word[Unsigned]/Bit String [16-bit]' with Array [0..7]. I want to put 16 variables with data type 'bit' in var1. Is there function for that? Also is it possible to put 16 variables (bit) like this: var1[0].0:=bit1; var1[0].1:=bit2 etc. I'm using GX Works 2 with CPU L02 Best Regards

  5. Hi I am having trouble programming something I thought would be simple. I am using Word Lamp to display 6 different images ie. 6 states.  I have 5 Command Buttons. When pressed each one causes a different image to be loaded . What I want is the 6th image to display when the command buttons are released and before they are pressed. Unlike Bit Button which has a momentary setting , Command Button can only set a state. I wish it had a momentary feature so the state value could  be set when pressed and return to 0 when released. I hope I am being clear with what my issue is .  Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Jim
  6. Hi, I am using syswin and i am doing an exercise on saving and moving data. My challenge is am monitoring temperature from a sensor and the range is -20'C to 100'C from the 4-20mA sensor, after conversion and testing for positive and negative the values are stored in D205. (I have done the conversion and testing for positive and negative values only assigning of bit 15 in D205 is left) The simple program has to turn on Bit 15 if the value is supposed to be negative. 1000 0000 0000 0001, a simple approach to telling us this is -1’C.  0000 0000 0000 0001, is telling us this is 1’C. Bit 15 is going to be our Sign Flag, so we have to ensure that if the temperature is positive then  Bit 15 = 0, how can we do this make Bit 15 of D205 = 0? If the temperature is negative then  Bit 15 = 1, how can we do this make Bit 15 of D205 = 1? How can i turn on this bit inside a data word? for negative i thought i could just add #8000 to the values after conversion then storing in D205 but for positive values how do i ensure that bit 15 is 0? How could you approach this? Am a bit stuck, all thoughts and ideas are much appreciated if possible you could add a snapshot from syswin or cx-programmer. I have attached the WTANK.SWP file which can be opened in syswin or cx-programmer. Look in block Main 8 Temp Buffer, Network 3 Convert to 'C WTANK.SWP
  7. PF 525 "Pos Redefine"

    Hi Everyone, I have a PowerFlex 525, in Velocity Mode with a Encoder Card "25-ENC-1". We are controlling this drive via TCP/IP with a 1769-L32. Through the PLC if I try to toggle the Bit for "Pos Redefine" in A560 [Enh Control Word] it instantly turns back to 0. But through the Parameter List Editor I am able to toggle A560. For My function I need to have the drive in Velocity Mode, If I change the drive to Position Mode I am able to toggle "Pos Redefine"   Any Thoughts would be great      
  8. I have 14 alarms all addressed to word 200 i.e. 200.** and i want to monitor the state of bits in word 200 such that if one of them is on the coil 204.00 should turn on (Currently i am using the OR operator to turn on bit 204.00 but the task is to use a single instruction to monitor the sate of the 16 bits of a word by comparing it to an integer say #0). I was thinking of using compare to achieve this but i do not know how to compare a word say 200 to a an integer value #0 such that if DW200>#0 then 204.00=on. How can i achieve this and what instruction can i use, am new to omron plc's and am using syswin 3.4 and plc CPM2A. Any help or sample program to achieve the above is deeply appreciated.
  9. Union

    Hello! I am trying to get hold of the bits in a word, i have read that union is the way to go. My problem is that i cant figure out how union works. I have made a union between a word (16bit) and an array(0...15). The way I understood this was that the word now automaticly updates the array so that when the least significant bit in the word should update array[00] and so on. This is not happening. When I monitor the variables I can see the word change, but nothing happens with the array. Have I misunderstood the consept and what should I do to get hold of the bits?
  10. OR Word AND Word application

    Hi Im relatively new to PLC programming and focusing mainly on Siemens PLCs.  Can someone give me an example or why one would want to use OR Word (OW) and AND Word (AW).  I understand that this means it is combining the contents of accu1 and accu2.  But why would you want to OR/AND them. Thanks
