  2. Adjusting counter value from HMI

    K is a permanent decimal number You need to use a D register in the plc program. Ie C10 D100 Then use D100 in your hmi
  3. Hello So far I am getting on well with a small project, and have an FX3 with analogue module connected to a small monochrome GOT 2000.  What I want to do, is adjust a counter K  value from the HMI, and display the K number. I have figured out how to create the screen, and add bit numbers etc, but not yet sussed out this bit. I have an up and down key and numeric display on the screen, but cant figure out the rest. Still a lot to learn! Can anybody point me in the right direction? We have GXworks 2 BTW. Kind Regards Spud

  5. Kinetix 3 firmware

    Hi, Can anyone advise on how to upgrade the firmware on Kinetix 3 drives (2071-AP8 Series A)? There is a firmware update option in Ultraware, but when I try that it says something like f/w version does not support upgrade. Is it actually possible to upgrade them at all? You can download new versions from the AB website, which suggests it must be possible. They currently have v2.00, and latest version is v2.23. I know these are old drives, but they still work so might as well get some use out of them. Thanks, James.

  7. Can't alter program A series.

    Thanks. I don't have the program with me but i'll be going back. I did have a look for indirect addressing but it's a big program. My suspicions are mounting that this is some kind of way to keep outsiders out.   I'll be back with more details later... with this lockdown, they are only working 2 days a week with skeleton staff  
  8. Constant Web Tension Control

    Yeah that would be the correct way to do it. However the company I’m working for doesn’t want to have to buy anything extra or mechanical to add to the current system. I think I’ll be able to do it by reading my coil diameter with a laser sensor in inches and dividing my torque feedback(in-lbs) from my drive by that radius(in) to get a number (+- 10%) representing the tension in pounds force.
  9. Constant Web Tension Control

    Not sure this will help.  I usually see a load cell, between the slitter and the recoiler, used in a PID to determine the torque setting to the recoiler vfd running in torque mode.
  10. Constant Web Tension Control

    So I'm having trouble writing a FBD within my current program for a slitting line. I need to keep a constant tension on my web as it is being recoiled onto our recoiler. I wrote a simple program using a sensor to read the growing rate of the coil to get a radius and I have feedback on my torque on the recoiler motor. The simplest math for this application without getting into anything too fancy should be Tension(lbs)= Torque(ftlbs)/coil radius. only problem is when its less than a foot then my calculation is thrown off and it actually shows tension goes up until it reaches the one foot mark then it seems to scale correctly. Do I need to scale something else? Any help on this would be appreciated.

    dear sir.. ok.. noted.. I will do first.. and also get all information related with the problem 
  12. Sysmac Cj2m Cpu35

    You should be able to connect to the plc over USB. This would allow you to check the error log.
  13. Sysmac Cj2m Cpu35

    plc connected with 1 pc inside the control room... I'm not sure with plc address... I need to see what is current node switch is selected... for ur advice what I need to do now.. online first with cx programmer and check error log or others, or change the cpu first or any others idea. 
  14. Can i send an email with 1768-ENBT/A ?

    Glad to hear it!
  15. Can i send an email with 1768-ENBT/A ?

    Hi Pcmccartney1, you were right. I did not set it up right.  My primary and secondary server ip addresses were empty. Now, I am able to get an email :) Thank you for your replies.

    Crossbow Of course I intend to use wrong motor but with same wattage as the drive. Since the drive is of Minas 5 series and the motor is of Minas 6 series,  motor automatic recognition protection appears. My goal is to eliminate this recognition on my own risk, and I think it is possible by changing some parameters. Thanks for your consideration  
  17. Sysmac Cj2m Cpu35

    What is the IP address of the cpu? What other devices are connected to the network?
  18. Sysmac Cj2m Cpu35

    can you explain more detail cause I'm not to understand due to just started used omron plc. not familiar with omron plc
  19. Can i send an email with 1768-ENBT/A ?

    No, I think you either add and configure the EWEB or write an MSG in your ladder thru the ENBT.  Maybe others here have more experience on the matter.

  21. Omron sysmac cj2m cpu 31 Error Code

    hi mahmod... just want asking question.Your problem before.. I had face same problem.. Alarm HE at cpu.. how ur solve the problem
  22. Can i send an email with 1768-ENBT/A ?

    Hi pcmcccartney1, thank you for your reply. But in the manual, it says " Send an email initiated by a Logix controller via a MSG instruction" I guess, I can not send an email thru a compact controller unless I have a 1768-EWEB.

    Dear All,  Need your help. I have problem with plc cj2m cpu35. After power trip plc error. Err HE Ip 01..what is mean? plc also connected with one pc using ethernet cable. Any suggestion need to do...

  25. Bad quality alarms ( FT View SE v8.0)

    I had this problem. When setting up the alarm in the the Alarm and Event Setup. I typed the Input tag in manually and used curly brackets{} around the tag address.  For Example: {[Test]HMI_SIM_ESTOP} After getting BAD QUALITY I re-entered the input tag using the tag browser elipse [Test]HMI_SIM_ESTOP It fixed my BAD QUALITY problem

    thank you good sr
  27. Panasonic servo drive

    Sounds like that motor isn't the right one for that drive.  Servo amplifiers and motors are a matched set.  Are you using the wrong size motor?
