  1. Your earlier picture shows the MNet module is already inhibited, so good call on removing it.
  2. Control/CompactLogix Day of the Week

    @PaulKim1003 Wanted to get back to you and thank you.  It worked quite well for me.  My associate built his own but studied yours and found them to be quite similar.  There are many formulas on the web that describe how to get day of week.
  3. Dumb idea here...can you open the med in a text editor and change the version.  You know, like an L5K for Logix? Or is it truly locked because of the different versions of SQL?
  4. Old HMI NT21-ST121-E

    In your base OS, goto Devices and see which COM ports are occupied.
  5. Old HMI NT21-ST121-E

    You'll need to check to see if COM3 is being used by another device.
  6. Control/CompactLogix Day of the Week

    That would be wonderful!
  7. Any idea how to obtain or calculate the Day of the Week from WorldClockTime or any other attribute? There is a KB about a specific instruction GDW for SoftLogix 5 only.
  8. Make of plc

    Looks more like a IO board.  Takes all field wiring and the cable on the lower right goes back to an input or output module.  Like a Phoenix Contact product and also has individual fusing. 
  9. PanelView 600 - lost application

    Seem to remember those having a large memory card for application storage, almost PCMCIA looking.
  10. You need to determine the Xycom's Remote Screen Change capabilities and match up with that.
  11. Produced-Consumed tags exchange

    To pturmel's point, I've done udts quite a bit.  The only real hurdle is the limitation on the size or bytes of the udt.  The udt must also contain a connection status tag.  The limitation of normal tags is around 500 bytes while safety tags is 250 bytes, I think.
  12. Encoder Following Logic

    I might be over simplifying this but... Seems the box or case erector needs to know when to drop or push the box onto the conveyor between the cleats.  Why not have a prox detect the cleat and maybe an adjustable delay timer to determine when to "release" the box?
  13. Red Lion CR3000 HMI

    Does the manual describe the data type and access type?  Fearing that it's read only rather than read/write.
  14. Check the battery Check the cabling for the signals board to the robot base Lastly replace the signals board. 
  15. Change your processor in the program to series B?
