  1. AOP installation broke module RSL5000

    They didnt tell me how unfortunately 
  2. Hello, My coworker and I are commissioning a new panel. We have a 1732-AENTR series C remote IO thats Rev 6.1. The project file from a previous identical panel has the module at rev5.3 in the project tree. I downloaded the AOP and ran the installer, it worked no issues. My co worker then did the same thing but now the module is unrecognized in the project tree and the module is missing after installing the AOP. Im concerned he corrupted something. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the AOP but no luck. It works on my computer but not his? TechConnect said something about corrupting the aop core. My coworker did the first install and he was getting confused about zip files and the virtual machine we run rsl5k on. Maybe he broke it? any suggestions?

    TechConnect fixed the corruption issue

  5. Run Powerflex 525 from keypad?

    We like to add all of the specific parameters needed in the electrical drawings. I also like to keep a printout of all the parameters. https://rexel-cdn.com/Products/39E62596-1DCC-4029-9363-F11286CC741A/39E62596-1DCC-4029-9363-F11286CC741A.pdf

  7. password unlock tool

    We had an issue with a password protected PLC and after contacting the OEM they provided the password that they forgot to remove. But stealing intellectual property is illegal so you may have to factory reset the PLC and remake the program. 
  8. SLC 5/03 rs232 connection problem

    The Tripplite keyspan usb serial adapter + a null modem adapter for my serial cable
  9. SLC 5/03 rs232 connection problem

    I have an SLC 5/03 that Im trying to get the program from. I have a 1747-uic. Im not getting anything to show up in rslinx and I suspect the channel 0 is configured for ASCII because theres an HMI plugged into it. Also the rj45 connection is broken because someone used a crossover ethernet cable...lol. is my best bet to try and fix/replace the 1747-uic? I have an offline copy of a program from a different machine that uses a 'similar' setup and the CH.0 -System is configured for DF1 full duplex,19200,CRC and CH.0 - user is ASCII 19200 baud. Any Ideas? I was using the 3 wire db9 connector running from the HMI to the PLC. I unplugged it from the HMI and used it with the 1747, Should I use a standard DB9 cable with a null modem adapter?
  10. SLC 5/03 rs232 connection problem

    Thanks guys. I got the adapter in the mail and it worked right out of the box. I was about to start pulling whats left of my hair out!
  11. cylindrical grinding machine programs

    Have you tried contacting the OEM?
  12. Fx3u ethernet

    You would want to use serial communication. My only experience using the enet-adp is sending read requests from an IQ-R plc to the enet-adp.

    can you give me the model #/name of the modules you have?
  14. Micro850 failed whit the plug-in modules

    Click on the device tab of connected components workbench and select update firmware.
  15. They use the same hardware as everyone else. Robots, plc, cameras, ect. Most of the vehicles are attached to a car/train like Bruce says. as it goes down the line robots perform steps of a program and report back to a PLC and sometimes a cognex camera will take a picture of your parts.
  16. Micro850 failed whit the plug-in modules

    Can you verify youre doing the steps starting at p25 of this manual? You can plug the module into any spot but you have to specify where in your project file. https://literature.rockwellautomation.com/idc/groups/literature/documents/qr/9328-qr001_-en-e.pdf
  17. SLC 5/03 rs232 connection problem

    Channel 1 is set to dh485 and the indicator led slowly blinks, when I plug in the 1747-Uic to the port with a straight pass through cat5 cable the light continues to blink. On the 1747 the usb and dh485 lights occasionally blink but still nothing shows on rslinx 
  18. SLC 5/03 rs232 connection problem

    So Im looking at the project file from another machine that has a similar setup and Chan. 1 - System is DH+ at 57.6k Baud, Chan. 0 - System is DF1 Full Duplex, Chan. 0 - User is ASCII 19200 baud. thats a 5/04 cpu though. Our machine in question has a 5/03. I will try the DH485 connection today but Im pretty sure our 1747 converter is broken for dh485
  19. SLC 5/03 rs232 connection problem

    Thanks for the reply Mickey. I'll pick up a null modem cable tomorrow on the way to work. I'll post more info about our setup tomorrow. We got a 'new and better' laptop from IT with a smaller screen and no serial port haha. Should I buy a serial to usb converter?
  20. Micro850 failed whit the plug-in modules

    take a screenshot of your plugin module configuration. You need to make sure the locations match. 
  21. modbus rs232 communication error

    Sorry I cant see your pictures due to the firewall on our network. Are you setting the communication settings on the first scan? http://www.inverter-plc.com/plc/FX_PLC/The%20FX-232ADP%20RS-232%20adapter%20module%20for%20FX%20PLCs.pdf  
  22. Product ID tracking in a sorter machine

    We used a photoeye to trigger a camera (sorry not allowed to go into too much detail). It then added the item to an array. I reccomend you figure out how many inches/cm or whatever of travel one revolution of your encoder is and then convert it to a ratio of 1. so say 1 encoder rev = 2 foot of item travel on the conveyor and your divert is 11 foot away from the photoeye you use to trigger the camera. so if you add your item to the array at 0.5 revs of the encoder then your item location is scan ratio + encoder revs. so you would divert at 5.5. We had an absolute encoder. converting it to a ratio of 1 makes the math way easier.

    Im not an expert but please be more specific. data types are called devices. M device is a bit. D device is a word. T = timer. If you click the help tab and look in the manuals its all explained with pictures.
  24. Product ID tracking in a sorter machine

    Wy back when, we used an array and sized it based on the max amount of items we could get loaded into the system + some overage then just pushed and popped to our stack. It was an array of structured data types so each item had the info we needed. 
  25. Alpha 2 - Counter / Flip Flop

    you could do a comparison of an int that has a value that ranges 0-2. Just make sure the sequence isnt messed up on a power cycle. Never used alpha 2 controllers
