  1. i had to program a 3G3MX2 inverter on the bench as spare, so I used CX-Drive to do it. The inverter is part of a project in Sysmac Studio, I thought i can just export the inverter parameters from there and import in CX-Drive for immediate programming, but I discovered that the format exported from Sysmac Studio (.drvp) is neither read nor can be imported from CX-Drive. Is there any way to program a standalone inverter without connecting through Ethercat, or even better, convert the files between the two programs?
  2. Hi Lipton, Thanks for your reply. I use version control regularly since the mid-2000 for automation projects and got used very quickly on the convenience and the (huge) advantages it gives. I choose Mercurial, whose simplicity and power will never praise enough, the market however has moved towards Git so I had to adopt it for my use. I am still working over a workflow integrating past projects versioned with Mercurial with never ones versioned in Git, so I have to revise some of my previous assumptions that Mercurial made easy to implement. With Git it will take more time and require to read a whole lot of documentation more, I would have preferred Omron allow users decide which version control software to use, similar to what Visual Studio doing. For reference, I usually work on projects alone or with groups of 2-3 peoples, i use vcs mostly to track projects changes, additions and modifications, following mechanical and electrical changes of the machines.
  3. Just started to use Version Control in Sysmac Studio, and getting used to the ideas behind it. One question though, the scope of commit from inside SS is limited only to the program? Retained memories ariables and memory seems not tracked, and i have to recommit them using Git directly from outside software Thanks
  4. getting two NX/NJ plc to communicate through CIP datalink, i can check  _EIP_TargetNodeErr[<IP node address>] and _EIP_RegTargetSta[<IP node address>] for communication problems. However this does not work when the datalink is done through CJ areas. I can get around it in program, but I would better like using an internal variable like the ones above. So far I didn't found anything in the documentation, are such flags existing and available as system variables? Thanks
  5. Can NB HMI do 1:N ?

    NB touchscreen doesnt support NT-Link, only HostLink communication. You can set nodes for an HL network, so you can connect more HMI on one PLC
  6. i have to transfer program to a remote NB5Q so to avoid installing software and ask cabling to the technician at location, i choose to pass the program and load into the touchscreen with the USB key. All supposed went well until i was sent pictures of the transferred program and found some buttons with custom created graphics  were missing. I thought all resources of a HMI program were included on the .pkg file, but evidently this not the case, or more likely i haven't created a good package. My questions are as follows: - i transfer the .pkg file found under /temp directory, that had the correct date following the HMI compilation, is it the correct location? - the .pkg file contains all the resources (including custom graphics) following the compilation or needs to be specified prior to that? - regarding the transfer of the whole HMI software, may it be that the whole HMI directory created by NB-Designer should be transferred to USB disk rather than pkg? The manual supplied with NB-Designer, while generally good, are rather terse on the subject
  7. thanks for the suggestion, I did try and it works to export another program configuration, but do not add to a different device in Multiview explorer even created and selected it rather replace the original one. I don't think Omron currently provides a way to have many devices of same type in a single project, only combination of plc and HMI together. I do hope a future version of SS will allow projects having many devices grouped together in one file
  8. is there a way to put different separate SS projects (ie plc) into one single project? The only way possible seems adding device from multiview explorer, but it does not accept import or drag and drop from other files such as was possible for example in CX-Programmer
  9. Omron PLC Python communication

    you can try to look at this library:
  10. I have the same complain as the original poster and find the situation surprising. It looks like NB-D does not render properly the proportions between object's horizontal and vertical dimensions. So far I found two styles that displays passably in the dimensions i chose for screen, but it is impossible to change graphic parameters like borders or background color. I could add a custom graphic to suit my needs, but i found the procedure to add it to library not clearly explained in documentation. I continue to test NB for my applications but I wish these details can be fixed, such functionality is present even in NT Support Software and CX-Designer
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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.
