  1. Sysmac Studio Improvement Request

    I wonder if will be possible in future versions to avoid the distinction between the exported project file format and the one formatted in Solutions folder (same concept used in CX-Programmer between .cxp and .cxt formats).  Would like also the Multiview Explorer being as easier as in CX-Programmer
  2. hi all, i have two NX1P2 writing data to each other, using CIPUCMMWrite instruction. Both of these instructions fail with error code 1C00 and extended 2000 8022, that tells me: "The data type that is specified in the request service data does not agree with the tag information. The AddInfo Length in the request service data is not 0." I had done all checks on both programs (data type, setup as global variable, Publish only) and all is a expected in both plcs. Reading the manual  (W506) shows the data structure and objects involved in the communication, but is not clear to me how to check and modify the condition that made this particular error, besides CIPUCMMWrite seems an instruction that does not require any further handling of data. Others have met this particular error and how they solved it? Many thanks
  3. It is possible to make two simulated plc in two separate instances of SS to communicate among each other? For example starting one instance in computer and one in a virtual environment such as VirtualBox or VMWare.
  4. all was working until few days ago, now the simulator is available, but not the PT simulation. I would like to avoid reinstalling the whole package because i also have Sysmac Studio and uninstalling CX-One will likely maim the former installation. A quick search in the forum turned out a similar thread mentioning registry keys, but there are no further indications. Can someone point me on the keys in registry that controls behavior of both CX Simulator and the integrated PT-PLC?
  5. i am following two projects at the same time, one with NJ and one with TwinCat. For the latter i downloaded and used OSCAT library, i tried to do the same in Sysmac Studio, but would not work. Are library formats compatible between SS and TC?
  6. Sysmac Studio Improvement Request

    it would be good if different CVS such as Subversion or Mercurial could work with SS, without mandating the use of a specific version for team works. Of course is possible using these other CVS as of now, but a deeper integration like the one made available for GIT should be offered.
  7. Flowmeter pulse output maximum frequency is 2 kHz, and we normally set the pulse just at this value. 
  8. acting on advise from Omron support, we replaced the EC0222 with a GX-EC0211 card and the problem disappeared. We had to act quickly as we were near shipping date and we had no time to consider alternatives, but it was somewhat of a disappointment especially considering that Omron pushes a lot NX I/Os as the preferred alternative to Ethercat couplers, and we have already several projects lined to use them. Now we need to consider their use carefully
  9. together with colleagues we are setting up a system in which a flowmeter pulse output is read by a NX2 plc with a fast counter card EC0222. We found a very significant discrepancy between pulse count from flowmeter and the value read by the card, on the order of tens of liters. We replaced the counter card with others, just to be sure there is no faulty hardware, but the result does not change, and in Sysmac Studio there are no settings for the counter card that may correct this error. The same flowmeter with same pulse setup is read perfectly by a CJ2 cpu equipped with CTL41 fast counter card and that makes us very perplexed. Do we have to resort to filtering the incoming pulses in the card, or there are settings we can make in Sysmac Studio to improve the situation? This system is one of the first we are doing with the new NX2, and in the past using the CJ types we never encountered this kind of problem.
  10. I have an CJ1W-SCU31 card, in whose two serial ports are connected a grand total of 16 NS5 touchscreen. I setup the routing table with CX-Integrator and upload to CPU, then proceed to connect to each network number and download the configuration, only to be greeted by an error message stating the network configuration can't be transferred for the serial card or the communication interface. I double checked the routing table, and read Integrator manual, but can't figure out what is wrong. I tried to use the autoconfiguration function in Tools/NT Link, and it can detect all the connected touchscreen, so the configuration is correct, but still i can't get it downloaded in my PC. Suggestions?
  11. .cin file question.

    you are correct, if your plcs have at least one communication or network card (ethernet, device net, controller link, serial port) needing to be configured, they will have each one its own .cin file. If you know or suppose to know the settings of the installed cards (network number, node numbers), the files can be recreated at will.
  12. CX-P and Windows 8.1 x 64 bit

    Botched installation perhaps? I installed CX 4.03 then went away with all updates. Not a hitch, besides setting screen resolution properly. Lenovo T440s, win 8.1 64 bits.
  13. ISAGRAF download not working

    In the past I had a chance to test ISaGRAF, that advertises itself as the precursor to the current crop of automation software such as TwinCat, Codesys et al. It is also owned by Rockwell Automation through ICS Triplex. It used to be simple to download the full software from their site, but now it appears this possibility is broken. It is redirected to a ftp site whose connection times out. I am starting to think that the product is either discontinued or unsupported, but nothing indicates otherwise. I have a project in which I can use this software and i would like to test it again. The current version is 6.1 and the download page is Are there alternative download sites? Someone else has been able to download and install the full package?
  14. DeviceNet diagnostic software

    i am having a slew of DeviceNet-related errors lately, and mostly i have to troubleshoot in remote, and with people not always proficient or comfortable with electrical troubleshooting. I see CX-Integrator has a network diagnostic tool for Controller Link, but no related service for DN, there is some tool (Omron or otherwise) that may be used to diagnose the status of the network and its error condition? Ideally it should be used to pinpoint with the maximum possible accuracy errors in the DN connection, perhaps communication signal status (again, looking from the analogous tool for Controller Link).
  15. Connect to PLC through Dynamic IP

    apologies to bring out an old thread. I tried the suggestion given in the initial post, so: - set up a Dyndns domain and enable the router support; - install Passport and set up the port forwarding through localhost; but without success. The point that escapes me is the setting up the PLC to routing table. Currently i set up the routing table in ETN21 to>my router internal LAN gateway, so any incoming request should be redirected straight on the connected PLC. I tried already with success communicating with the same PLC by giving in my CX-P the WAN address of my router, but using dyndns setup should avoid the need to get this address beforehand, and this is the scope of the whole topic. What should i look that i could have forgot or overlooked?
