  1. MOV &0000 D100 will clear it.
  2. NS Screens Using The Buzzer

    Michael - thanks - will give it a go.
  3. NS Screens Using The Buzzer

    Michael I did not enable run as I do not need it. I did enable basics and from the initial value page tried to enable bit 14 but it will not enable - will not turn on. That is what I was referring to.
  4. NS Screens Using The Buzzer

    'err' to 'on' - where? I thought from the page checking basics and the selecting on or off would do it but cannot select on.
  5. NS Screens Using The Buzzer

    OK - tried it out today. Selected basics but it appears one has to click on each individual item to enable ii "on" or "off" - cannot click on these at all and enable them. $SB has been allocated to channel 700. Turn on 700.14 in the PLC and nothing happens.

    figured it out mate - will be onsite doing tomorrow. Will let you know how I go.

    Ta chelton - found it.
  8. NS Screens Using The Buzzer

    Hi lostcontrol - do you mean as in a macro or something like that?
  9. The only thing I can find in help re using the buzzer is to use a multi function button. I want to use the buzzer as an alarm buzzer and turn on $SB13 or $SB14 from a bit in the PLC. Can anyone help please?
  10. 2 x CJ2M-CPU31 and Ethernet IP

    Thanks Michael - I think I will have to go to a dedicated PLC for this unfortunately. Schneider have the M580 and Emerson appear to have one as well. Will investigate further today.
  11. 2 x CJ2M-CPU31 and Ethernet IP

    Sadly I did not know Jay had passed away. We have had discussions over a long period of time - since I joined this group actually. I have run Ethernet switches in a ring before - no issue there. Will have to dig further I guess. Thanks.  
  12. 2 x CJ2M-CPU31 and Ethernet IP

    Will rephrase - original post is all over the place like a mad woman's breakfast! Old Aussie saying. I want to put 2 x CJ2M processors on the same Ethernet IP network - both will be scanning - they will have different IP addresses. I will have to use a standard CJ2M and an Ethernet IP card due to the final configuration - too many drops for the onboard Ethernet IP - over 16. Each PLC will also have an ETN card for access by a building management system via Modbus TCP - need the ETN for that as the FB uses sockets. A dry contact to go from the duty PLC to the standby PLC to disable outputs but not disable scanning. Also need to disable the Ethernet card as both ETN cards will have to have the same address eventually for the building management system. When the duty PLC is in control its ETN card will have address for example. If the duty PLC falls over the standby PLC ETN card will also need the address for the building management system. It would be possible to write the address to the DMs for the IP address but the problem I see here is the rotary switch on the front of the ETN would have a different last octet number than the number written to the DMs and would cause an error. Is it possible to turn on a bit to tell the PLC to ignore the rotary switch so there is no error? Also is it possible to have 2 x CJ2Ms in the same Ethernet IP ring scanning all the I/O? Eventually there will be 23 x Ethernet IP drops back to the processors. Michael Walsh? Jay Anthony? Hi old fella from another old fella.    
  13. 2 x CJ2M-CPU31 and Ethernet IP

    After reading some more documentation it appears that the M580 actually swaps Ethernet addresses to N and N+1. Is there a way to do this at all please?
  14. 2 x CJ2M-CPU31 and Ethernet IP

    Silly question time. I am looking at a job where I will have to use Hirschman or some other brand of switch for Ethernet IP I/O that will form a ring - they are about so that is OK - have done it before. The other issue is that I have to have 2 x PLCs in 2 different cabinets on the network. Each will be in the ring and the standby PLC will have a dry contact input from the duty PLC to turn the outputs off - warm standby. They will not accept the CS1D as there is only 1 rack in 1 cabinet. Question is can I have 2 PLCs scanning the Ethernet IP I/O at the same time? I can see no reason why not but may be wrong. Another issue I would have is that there is to be monitoring by a BMS system Modbus TCP. Each PLC would have an Ethernet card with the same IP address which would cause a clash on the network. Is it possible to make the Ethernet card in the standby PLC 'invisible' while in standby mode when the dry contact is on from the duty PLC and then when the dry contact turns off make it visible and make the Ethernet card in the duty PLC 'invisible'? Schneider do this internally in the M580 hot standby system. My only other option is the very expensive Schneider M580 system. Any help appreciated.
  15. hello bob greeting from me 

    bob, i want to asking about modbus communication with scu 41-v1 

    so i have cj2m cpu 31 communication with nb so the port which include in plc can't used to communication, now this plc will communicate with scada (schneider ) so omron plc will be slave and scada will be the master, i want use the rs 232c port on scu-41 but i confused how to program it, can you help me to give the link or suggest for the program itself

    i already get this but is that i can used for it?


    please i need help 

    thankyou bob

      from scada to plc omron i used tcp converter usr-tcp232-410s
