Newbie Question: We have an old diecutter with an Omron Sysmac C60P controller.

11 posts in this topic

Good Day to all,

One morning we turned on our die cutter (Model ADC 690) and encountered a solid red light (error) on the controller. We ran thru a similar issue on another machine with a different PLC that its programming code got erased due to a dead battery. We seem to have another similar problem with our die cutter we tested the onboard batter turned out dead. So my question is could this be the same issue where programming got lost due to a bad battery?

I will attach picture of the controller. We browsed thru the manual and so far it doesnt state any program deletion due to a dead battery. We are hoping this is not the case as the manufacturer of the diecutter no longer exists. Any help from the gurus will be appreciated.

 

Thank you!

Rudy

ruddyu78,

Did you connect to the unit to see if the program was in the plc?  Handheld would be 3G2A6-PRO15.  Software would be SYSWIN with a 3G2C7-LK201 Host Link.

C60P would have come from Europe.  US version would have been C60K.  These were discontinued in 2002.

I would suggest you replace with a CP1L-M60DR-A.  It does look like you have at least one expansion unit.  CP1L-M supports 3 expansions.

Thanks,

Thanks for your reply! We're basically fish out of water when it comes to PLC we do have tech background so first thing is getting that handheld however Im having a hard time finding Host Link here in the states thru ebay can I just use the handheld instead?

If we were have lost the programming due to a dead battery what would be our solution to this? We have an expensive paper weight at this point.

ruddyu78,

You just need either the handheld or host link.

Here is the manual for the PRO15.

Hope this will help.

Your best bet for programming would be the W184 manual linked above.

It appears this unit is too old for youtube videos.

IMO the dead battery shouldn't delete your program (i.e. the ladder diagram)

However, battery does make sure memory values are kept as how it was set when programming the PLC.
In much cases these memories related to the PLC operation settings, so having a bad battery may reset those settings on power cycle, thus causing a faulty operation.

innoaloe,

The C**K and C**P series did not have a flash memory like the newer processors.

If you lost the battery, and the main power the program was gone.
