Cannot Connect to CP1L-E

6 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

    I was programming my CP1L-E over ethernet with no issues at all. I did get an error when uploading my program regarding cycle time, so I went into PLC->Settings->Timings and changed both values to maximum (4000*10ms watch cycle time and 32000ms constant cycle time). Once I restarted the plc it just wouldn't connect. I've tried option cards CP1W-DAM01, CP1W-CIF41, CP1W-EIP21 and i just cannot get comms with the PLC. I can see the CP1W-EIP21 card on my computer, however,, in its own IP address. From what ive figured, the plc is getting stuck somewhere in its boot cycle as I am unable to ping it either. The POWER and RUN lights are both green, and the LNK/ACT light flashes when i connect an ethernet cable to the inbuilt ethernet port. Any help is appreciated, thank you! Any way to factory reset the whole plc or even just the settings? I've disconnected the battery for 30 minutes before plugging it back in aswell but that did not help me.

Maybe try a serial comm unit?

CP1W-CIF01 (RS232).  Make sure you use the right cable  C200HS-CN220-EU.

Here is the pinout.

The CP1L-E only has ethernet.

According to the brochure, you should be able to add a comm module.

Is that not correct?

Just setup and tested.  This will work.

Default on the CP1W-CIF01 is Sysmac Way 9600, 7, even, 2.
