  1. Good morning Chris, 

    We lost the program on our PLC-5 for our Autojector, in searching to try to find a replacement I came across your feed from 2002 where you said you had one.

    Do you still Have the program, if not do you have any idea where we would be able to locate one?


  2. Now if we could just do the reverse process of this, I'd be a happy camper. LOL
  3. I have version 1.25 of Studio right now. It seems to allow saving the library file. I will try and create a new Library Project and see if I can copy things into it.....
  4. A while ago, I created a library project and a function block. After I was finished, I exported my library to a .SLR file.  Of course the laptop I made the library project on has been replaced and I lost my original library project, however I have the .SLR library file. I would like to restore my library project and edit some features in my function block I made. Is it possible to restore my library project from an .SLR or I also have a project that I imported my .SLR library into this standard project? My goal is, can I restore my library project file and how do you do that in Sysmac Studio?
  5. I have NOT gotten Large Forward Open to work with ANY Compact Logix. I was told that a Control Logix and 1756-EN2T(R) can do it, but I haven't a project that requires a Control Logix to confirm it. At this time, I agree with @pturmel above, I have not been able to get any Rockwell products to support this feature of Ethernet/IP.
  6. Excel DDE Data Log

    I've got a sample too. Lots of VBA script in this one....
  7. I am spec'in a new job and wondered what you guys thought about the Pane View 5000 series with the new integrated software into Studio 5000? Or should I just stick with the trusty-old Panel View Plus 7 and my ME Studio software. Anyone have any good success or problems with the 5000 Panel Views?
  8. Automatic sub

    Which attachment was it? I might be able to fix it?

    I think I fixed the link above for you guys... If you see anything else like this, I'll try to fix them as you find them.
  10. SCU 41 Modbus v7 Inverter

    Did that work?

    Welcome to MrPLC. English would be best here. If you can type in English.
  12. It's looking like I am gunna have to do it this way, along with concatenating the DINTS into a DINT to STRING for a "time-date" stamp. I always hope for the best and make sure I didn't miss something that might have been added like a new feature or firmware update that I overlooked.
  13. Checking to see what might be some methods to capture a time and date stamp into an array element, then display that on a panel view? Right now I have a 100 element array, I want to treat this 100 element array like a log file. I have EPOCH time setup in this program, so I can capture the EPOCH into the log. Is there an EPOCH to Time/Date display or function in a Panel View trick somewhere maybe? Any other ideas for how you guys have handled that one?
  14. Bob, Yes so see here this Panel View TAG: {[PLC]ML_DataBase.Display[0].RemainService} I want an indirect address where the ZERO is. {[PLC]ML_DataBase.Display[myvar].RemainService} I was just checking to see if I missed any updates or not that would allow this.
  15. Does anyone know if Allen Bradley has added Indirect Addressing to PanelView Tags yet? I didn't hear anything in a while, but I thought I would ask in case I missed any new releases.
