  1. BL67/BL20

    I recently added a BL20 "Busstop" to a machine with a CompactLogix L32E plc. There is nothing to "heartbeat" the device (to allow a reset function) in case of loss of ethernet communications with the plc. Turck tech support points the finger at A-B and A-B points the finger back at Turck. Fortunately I had a spare input that I directly wired to the terminal strip to give me an "always on" input.

    Motoman (XRC2001 or NX100) to A-B Logix Devicenet configuration. XFB01 Ethernet fieldbus board (HMS Anybus) interfacing to an A-B CompactLogix (L32E) processor. The attached jpegs show the Motoman (HMS Anybus) configuration and the CompactLogix module properties dialog box. After the board is installed and the Node number set by dip switches start the Motoman controller up by pressing the MAIN MENU button upon power up. This will take you to the maintenance portion of the controller. You may be prompted to enter the eight digit code. Next cycle power and the new configuration will be accepted.

  10. First Compact Logix Look (RS 5000)

    With the Logix platform and RSView Studio, one can create buttons, indicators, inputs, etc and simply assign a shortcut to the processor (or offline file) thru RSLinx Enterprise. This shortcut now allows the developer to simply configure the "connections" to the buttons, indicators, inputs, etc. by selecting the appropriate tag (which RSLinx Enterprise sucks out of the controller---or offline file.) Click, drag, drop so to speak.

  12. First Compact Logix Look (RS 5000)

    Chako....Try this neat ability with the Compact/Control Logix processors. Example: connect to the Logix processor with PC "A" and then connect to the same processor with PC "B". Edit the program online with "A"....watch "B" correlate the change automatically. Nice tool for correlation to a maint. pc while remotely connected thru a VPN. The motion commands in 5000 are a welcomed perk, (say when bundled with drive systems such as a PowerFlex, sercos Ultra 3000, etc.) The CompactLogix was was slow in delivering built-in motion, but it has arrived with the new 1768 platform. The ability to click, drag and drop tag names imported from the processor into an HMI application like RSView ME is a "hunt-n-peck" typist's saving grace. The GENERIC ETHERNET configuration is a convenient and simple means of communicating to remote fieldbus items (Turck, Wago, Siemens, RedLion DSP, HMS Anybus, etc.) as well as vision sensors (Banner, Cognex, DVT, etc.) The CPT function is NICEEEEE as well as being able to utilize a CompactLogix backplane to channel to other devices. We couple the CompactLogix L32E/L35E with PV+ and 1734-AENT devices on a majority of our small to midsized projects and save quite a few dollars over a comparable SLC 5/05 system, not to mention the programming time is cut nearly in half. All this praise from someone, as you know, who is NOT an A-B fan must be worth something..... My word...I cannot believe I just did a sales job for Kirby-Risk. The end must be near!

File Name: Cognex Vision Guidance Job (Denso Scara) File Submitter: 5150 File Submitted: 2 Jun 2007 File Category: Vision Systems Cognex program that delivers coordinates to a Denso SCARA robot (see related robot program in Robots and Servos category). One of six parts are randomly orientated on quick change tooling nests. These parts are collected by the Denso and presented to a Cognex 5100-1000 vision sensor. The Theta is sent via ethernet to the CompactLogix and it determines a PASS/FAIL criteria that is then relayed to the SCARA. The part is then placed into assembly tooling (+/- 1/2 of a degree).
