  1. ip Finder

    Send us your shipping information and we'll see what we can do. https://twcontrols.com/contact
  2. That would be my preferred method :) https://plctools.com/plc-tools-sim-ipe-ethernet-ip-address-explorer-dhcp-and-bootp-server/
  3. More likely the NAT is filtering the broadcast packets that Ethernet/IP uses for discovery.  I use Virtualbox so I'm not as familiar with VMWare but it seems like there were some setting about this.
  4. NATs can be tricky depending on the number network adapters and how they are configured.  Hit the basics.  Open the command prompt and ping the IP address.  If the ping is good, look at harmony files.  If the ping is bad, then look at the NAT.  I always use a bridged adapter because of problems that I have had.
  5. My first guess would be the Harmony files. https://twcontrols.com/lessons/troubleshooting-rslinx-browsing-problems-caused-by-harmony-files
  6. Compact Logix L24ER

    Contact your Rockwell Automation local distributor. They will be able to get you a 30-day trial. https://locator.rockwellautomation.com/
  7. Micro850-I/O tags reading zero/not updating

    What position is the mode switch on the PLC in?  Are the sensors 2 wire or 4 wire and how do you have them wired.
  8. Rslinx and Studio 5000 Whois

    First guess, try deleting your harmony files.  They can cause unusual browsing issues such as this.  Also, are you using the Ethernet/IP driver or the Ethernet devices driver?  See if one or the other makes a difference.  https://twcontrols.com/lessons/troubleshooting-rslinx-browsing-programs-caused-by-harmony-files

  10. You need to post your code so we can look at it.
  11. How long are you wanting to energize for? For that single full minute? If so, why are you using the OTL? The OTE would make it true for that minute only.
  12. Run Powerflex 525 from keypad?

    Glad I could help.
  13. Run Powerflex 525 from keypad?

    Study on parameter P046, that is your command source, and P047, that is your speed reference.
  14. Run Powerflex 525 from keypad?

    Are they brand new out of the box?  If so turn the potentiometer to the right and hit the green button the the keypad.  
  15. micrologix 1200 watchdog

    Did the system used to work without faulting? It usually means there is a grounding problem but if a system has been working for years and suddenly gets this then it could be a PLC going bad.
