  1. Control Logix OPC

     
  2. FSC Instruction

    Hi, I have an Array of 120 DINT's, 120 positions. Each Index of a Dial equates to One DINT (position), and if a bad part is detected then a "1" is put into this DINT, good part is "0". The DINTs are cleared after each full revolution of the Dial.  What that I am trying to check to see if a "1" is put into any of these, i.e. a bad part. I was trying to use a FSC Instruction, but I haven't used before, and would be grateful of some help with this. Thanks Conor
  3. Remote site: Read I/O

    Hi Ken, Sorry for not expanding. The site will be a few miles away, about 5. As far as I know on the remote site there is an Allen Bradley MicroLogix 1200. Currently we don't have any connection between the two sites.
  4. Remote site: Read I/O

    Hi guys, I have been asked to access a remote site that we have and have not done this before. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. I would be connecting to an L33ERM this end. I also have a Stratix 5900 on this end as well. Any help would be great. Thanks, Conor
  5. Disable STI

    Hi guys, I have a PLC that can be slow when doing online edits. There is an STI called but all of the code in this routine is obsolete. How do I make sure that this routine is not called? I see that there is an Enable bit S:2/1, and this is set to 1. If I set this to Zero will this stop the routine from being called? Thanks Conor
  6. 1762-IF4

    Hi, Another great way to check your system is by using a current loop calibrator, something like the Fluke 773 Milliamp Process Clamp Meter, though you can get other cheaper ones as well. This way you can "inject" a 4 - 20 mA signal into your system, and you will then be able to see the full range of your AI. It is probably one of the first checks that I would do when we are troubleshooting problem with Instruments as well. Conor
  7. Site looks very good. i like the forum it that you have added as well. I just clicked on a couple of links and had to use the back button to get back there first. When I looked a little harder I found that I could get back via the Supprt link above. So I think that if you had larger tabs across the top to navigate back to support home. I have done a few web pages for work (internel) and I have fond that when I made the tabs larger that the end user didn't have as many questions when the pages went live. Conor
  8. SLC PID help

    Hi Mickey, I am not sure if I am allowed post directly to the forum because of IP. It is a program from a vendor that we don't have any contact with now. I checked this morning and have attached another screendump from code. Output is now set? Conorslc_pid_1.bmp

  11. Wonderware Intouch 9.5 Full project backup

    Hi, Normally if you are upgrading from 9.x to 10.x, Wonderware should be able to assist you with the migration. There are various tech notes on configuring Wonderware that are freely available out there. The SMC settings should come across, but if you still have the old XP PC running you should be able to set-up the new PC the same. I thikk that there is migration manual on the installation DVD that comes with a new install of Wonderware as well. This should assist you as well. Conor
  12. Hi, I know that they are not brilliant, but I normally use Symbol Factory that can be accessed from the Wizards menus. Conor

  14. First Scan Bit: New to Mitsubishi

    Thanks guys. I will check that out
  15. Hi guys, I dont normally post on the Mitsubishi forum, but I have a question for you guys. In AB there is normally a first scan bit I am working with a Mitsubishi FX-1S, and cant find the First Scan bit instruction. Basically I would like to make sure that if my machine is powered down mid cycle that when it is powered back on that it completes a purge sequence. I would normally use a first scan bit. Any help on this would be great Thanks, Conor
