  1. Cimplicity 7,5

    Good Day There is a SCADA Cimplicity and controller Control logix 5561 AB. Communication between them is organized via Ethernet IP. It is necessary to transfer some tags from the Cimplicity to the controller Control Logix. How to do it better? Through Rslinx DDE OPC or write scripts in the Cimplicity? 
  2. Change Management LogIn(lost password

    I cant able to make any changes on the points (datatype from INT to DINT) on cimplicity workbench  everything thing is greyout!! i checked and found that the workbench has a change management logOn option asking to logon! Which asks for user name and password!! And No one here Now has the user name or its password!! what to do now on such cases , Also on doing modifications on logic developer validating project generates error  may be due to mismatch data type of that associated point on workbench.
  3. Socket communication with Micro820

    Hi everyone ! I have a little project wich involves communication between two Micro820 controllers via TCP/IP. To do that, I started to work with TCP/IP socket. Within CCW (Connected Components Workbench), I tried to create a new socket instance using the instruction SOCKET_CREATE and set the socket address to Basically, my computer through the FTP port. The problem was that it couldn't create a new socket instance (error variable is set to TRUE and status is set to 4, wich I don't know the meaning) because I didn't have a server-side application that listens to TCP/IP socket requests. That said, I found an open source application called SocketTest that listens for TCP/IP socket requests on a specified IP address and port. So, I started a listener on the following address :, but the error variable is still set to TRUE and status is still set to 4. So, my questions are : Is my IP address OK ? Is my port number OK ? What means the status code 4 ? Is SocketTest doing what I think it does ? Do I need to do something else before using the SOCKET_CREATE instruction ? Thank you in advance for your help !
  4. Can't connect to Micro820 controller via CCW

    Hi everybody, Recently, I started working on a project. I want to develop a program for a Micro820 controller (2080-LC20-20AWB) using CCW (Connected Components Workbench). I built a little motor circuit for testing purpose. However, after building the program and downloading it to the controller, I tried to connect to my controller via CCW, but I can't. When I click the button "Connect", CWW crashes OR a window saying : "The controller has unnacepted changes" appears and asks me if I want to "Download current project to the controller" (wich I already did) or "Upload the project in the controller to overwrite current project content" (wich is grayed out). When I choose to "Download current project to the controller", CCW starts downloading the resource, but fails. In the "Output" window, there's a line saying : "Download failed for Device:Micro820: An error occured while reading from GETACTIVERESOURCELIST.". The problem is that there's no documentation at all concerning this error. I even tried to reinstall CCW, but it didn't fix the problem. I joined some images so you guys can see what I'm talking about. Don't mind asking for more details !
  5. Converting UINT to DINT

    Good afternoon,   I need to convert a UINT (16-bit unsigned integer) to a DINT ( 32-bit signed integer).   Apparently we can't directly assign a UINT variable's value to a DINT's or vice versa. I also couldn't find a way of casting UINT as DINT.   The reason why I need to do it is because I'm receiving data from a socket. The RXLength is a UINT but in order to scroll through  the data array (USINT[1..1])  I need to use a DINT as the array's index, but I can't compare the array index to the array's length because they are incompatible types.   Is there a cast statement similar to:       myDINTvar := (DINT) myUINTvar;   I also tried the following but it didn't work:       myDINTvar :=  (myUINTvar * 1);   Any help will be deeply appreciated.   
  6. 8_decimal Data Displays as only 4_Decimals !

    I am Facing Problem Getting Kwh Readings From My Satec MFM(PM130-PLUS), Required for an easy & reliable Monitoring On Energy Consumption . Connected via RTU Slave Interface with SCADA User Interface (GE_Cimplicity). Here's what happening : Actual Kwh Reading has 8_decimal data digits on MFM LED Display but on Cimplicity SCADA User Interface Screen It only able to Display it as 4_Decimals point digit, eg, 63290058 kwh shows as 0058 , and 15299999 kwh shows as 9999 , and then 15300001 kwh shows as 0001 i.e 1 only! Plz Do a Rply , your slight approach to my Query Will be highly Appreciated!! :)  
  7. Hi all I am setting up a batch tank system, I have 1 pump which can pump to six different tanks(via pneumatic actuated valves). This is my first go with a HMI, usually I would use a multiple position switch. Is it possible to make a six position selector switch with a HMI? I am using a AB Panel-View 800, has anyone done this before? Any help would be appreciated.
  8. Micro 830 RTC programming

    Hi all,  Can someone please help me, I am using a Micro830 Controller running connected components workbench software to program the controller. I want the use the Real Time Clock of the controller to control an output to turn on everyday at 01:30am and turn of when it receives a signal from an input. The output will control a backwash valve that will operate and activate a cam switch internally that sends a signal back to the Controller to say the valve has operated and can now stop sending the signal to the valve. (if that makes sense). I have tried playing around with the RTC instructions but I cannot seem to get it to operate how I want it to. Any help would be much appreciated. EnvrioService
  9. Hello, I am new to the connected components workbench software. I am working with an AB panelview component Hmi and would like to create numeric buttons to load integers into user variables in a schnieder LMD servo motor. The motor uses Modbus TCP to communicate. It appears that if I click on the numeric buttons properties there is a "Write Tag" of which you can use some default tags or create a new one. I am assuming that I need to create a new one with the motor's addressing but I'm not quite sure how to accomplish this. Any help would be much appreciated!!! Thanks, Steve   
  10. Timer/Counter

    Here's what I'm trying to do. when switch closes turn on output for 1 scan, starts a 10 minute time and counter, so that when time reaches 10 minute it will turn on output again for 1 scan and count another count, timer resets and counts another 10 minutes and turns output on again for 1 scan, and count another count when count gets to 5 this process is complete. I can do this in RSlogix500 with a micrologix 1100 but can't seem to get it working with the Micro800 and connected component workbench.
  11. Cimplicity 8.0 Alarming

    Hi Guys, I am new to Cimplicity SCADA but I was familiar with HMI. Now my requirement is to separate / dedicate the alarms to each process or setup in the respective screen. Prior they have made all alarms to fire on all screens/ all process. Now idea to separate the alarms in the respective screen. In all screens on top, if I click on alarm object, its properties are Link Container and it has Link source file as xxx.cim and Link source Object as Alarm. Please guide me from the beginning, how they configured the existing alarms also I am not understanding. I need help please. Thanks a lot.
  12. Hi All, I am not able to download control strategy on DesignerSim. It throws error - " Could not initialize comm to DesignerSim. Err = OPC Server Disconnected". Initially I was able to download strategy on DesignerSim. However, I started observing this error after I installed Wonderware software on the same system. So my system has GE WorkBench 8.4.0 and Wonderware 2014 installed on it. As per GE user guide, GE workbench is compatible with wonderware software. So, I am not sure what's going wrong with the set up which I have. I also tried to install these software on other system, and observed same issue. Does anyone know what could be potential reason for this error ? and How can I resolve it ? Thanks in advance.
