  1. Hi there! I'm trying to communicate HMIS5T HMI with a Modicon Micro TSX3722001 PLC. The communication is OK, but whenever I try to enter some data into a numeric display I get an error that says "Method or function in Communications System unsupported" and data won't change on PLC's Animation Table. Also, if I modify a variable's value in PL7 Pro, the value in the HMI numeric display won't change properly. It displays the last digit of the binary format of the number (let's say I write a "3" on PL7 Pro, then I get a "1" on the numeric display, despite all data types being UINT, and all ranges are OK. Then if I write any number which binary version ends in 0, I get that 0 on the numeric display, nothing else. Again, all data types and ranges are OK). Changing variables' source on Vijeo Designer to Internal doesn't seem to work. So I'm wondering what else must I do in order to send and receive data from/to HMI and PLC?    Thanks in advance and I hope you can help me! Update: Got this solved. For anyone wondering, Vijeo Designer 6.2 SP8 it's kinda buggy with Unitelway communication. There's a hotfix that solves this problem, provided free by Schneider.
  2. MPI Connection problem

    Hi there. Recently I've experienced problems when connecting to a S7-300 PLC via MPI/PROFIBUS. I use a PG with CP5711 processor. The thing is that I'm able to connect when I plug the 6ES7901-0BF00-0AA0 cable (male to male) directly to the PLC connector, but when I try to do connect to a PLC that has any device connected to the DP port (let´s say an inverter or HMI) I get 33:17075 error. PG/PC Interface it's correct, in fact another PG with the same configuration is able to connect through the already connected DP device's cable. Station number and transmission rate is all correct.  So I tried the Simatic NET Diagnostics Test and I got error 0x0313 and since the mentioned parameters are correct I refered to this link:  How do Diagnostics and Remedy work in STEP 7 when an online connection with the CP... - ID: 11492532 - Industry Support Siemens Where they say the following:    I've searched for this readme file but can't find it, and there are no useful results when looking for it on internet.  Why am I able to connect directly to the PLC but not when another device is connected and I have to use the female connector of the DP connector itself? Should I try to reinstall CP5711 drivers? According to Windows, I got the last drivers for the CP.    Thanks in advance and I hope you can help me!
  3. Simatic TP 1200 Comfort

    Hi! Yeah, I read that link and tried everything suggested, as long as various topics from users facing the same problem and it wasn't that rare to end up with a 'brick' panel, even following Siemens' instructions. So I was just wondering if this user got it to work somehow, but I see it's still an unsolved problem here.
  4. Simatic TP 1200 Comfort

    Hi there!  Reading this sub-forum I reached your topic. It happened to me some time ago and after searching everywhere and trying everything, I couldn't fix it either. So I was just curious if you got something since your last post or is it that common to end up with an expensive brick, as you say. Cheers.
  5. NB HMI and CP1L-E PLC RTC Setup

    In order to transfer the clock words from NB to PLC, use the Data Transmission object in NB-Designer. 
  6.   Hi, all button types have both 'Control Setting' and 'Display Setting' tabs in their properties. You can choose when you want them to be active and/or visible using a bit address, a security level or user permission. So, maybe you can associate the moment you want to lock them with any of these conditions. For the second one, try double-clicking on the screen itself and modify 'Position' values, as NB-Designer manual says itself "When the screen is the screen ejected by using “Pop-up Screen” function of the function key, the vertex in the upper-left of the screen will be displayed in this position." Hope this helps!
  7. [NB-Designer] Show popup after bit turn ON

    How about the Direct Screen part? You can associate a bit to the task finalization and the selected screen will pop up. NB's manual has more details of this tool.
  8. NB HMI via FTP

    Hi there! I got a NB with some daily data logs saved in a USB drive. The thing is, I've read about accessing NB via FTP and already tried connecting to the storage folder so I don't need to unplug and plug de USB drive every day. FTP is activated in the HMI but I'm struggling accessing using Windows' FTP function. Connection is okay, I can download the project to the NB from my seat and ping it. So here's my question, have you tried this type of connection? Is another software needed to properly access the HMI? Thanks in advance! 
  9. NB Data log

    Hi there!  I need to implement a data logging that saves the log in a USB storage for a machine and just started searching for some info about data logging in NB HMIs. Up to now I'm clear about using the Data History function and the sampling method I'll be using but I still have some unclarified doubts about this. 1.- The data log should sample the value of, let's say, a couple of words, each second for an entire day (6:00 am to 6:00 am). NB's manual doesn't say a lot about Storage Type and Buffer Storage in "Save Data History" tab. Does "daily file" mean It deletes the .CSV file daily and it generates a new one? If is it, at what time does this occur? Does "single file" mean it generates a file and won't get deleted? Does this mean the sampling stops when completing the first one? Is "storage period" used to keep the file after the next log begins? 2.- Is it necessary to display the element in order to make the log work? Or can it be placed in a random screen you only enter once a day? 3.- In the "Channel Properties" tab. If I need to get the binary value of a word, do I need to set the max. limit to 65535? 4.- I asume that "Sample points" value doesn't matter when selecting Continue sample mode. Am I right? Thanks in advance, any help is appreciated.  
  10. Slow NB7 HMI via Ethernet

    And if the connection is point to point with a single cable and no switches or hubs? The strange thing is that previous HMI was running fine and only the NB is working slow.
  11. Hi there! I've been working with NB HMIs with good result. But today I loaded a project to a NB7-TW01B and it feels slow, both offline and online. Switching screens and reading/writing take around 1sec or more. It first had some bmp images created with .bmp and .png files, so I tried using vector graphics instead, but didn't get any better. I don't have another NB to try it right now so I'd like to ask you if you've been in this same situation before or what could be causing this. PLC is CP1L and communication it's via Ethernet. Both devices are actually pretty close (cable is less than 3m) and the previous HMI (Pro-face GP) felt a lot faster. Thanks in advance!
  12. Hi there! I recently discovered this forum and I find it pretty useful for sharing and learning about PLCs. The thing is I'm trying to make a Stack using the SSET(630) instruction in a CJ2M PLC. Reading Omron's W340 manual I saw that PLC memory address for the different stack channels is represented as "00010000" to "0001000F". So, in order to set the last stack word address as well as the pointer's address, how do you know those values? Or am I just misunderstanding something? Thanks in advance!   Edit: Solved, the definition of the stack was wrong!
