  1. What do you mean by pointers.?  
  2. USB Connection Issue

    As there are now multiple drivers, you have to select the relevant one for your device. You should be able to locate the driver manually.   I have had this issue when using a brick PLC, NS & NB screens where have had to manually change the driver for the USB connection
  3. Motion Control

    Sounds like baldor/ABB drive upgrade? As IO_Rack has said, what modules are on the PLC rack.? you shouldn’t need to access the PLC if just doing a drive upgrade, as long as you can get the config/setup from the current flex drive. From there, it should be just autotune & go.  
  4. NA5 Variables pink when previously working

    This sounds like a bug in sysmac somewhere, as I recently had something similar. Opening a project that was all ok & had the EIP mappings are broke. I need to check if this was from an import or version upgrade tho.
  5. Can the 'mode of operation' be exposed via the PDO mapping? 
  6. L18er embedded i/o not responding

    Is this a working system or new.? ive had an L16 embedded IO go bad before, fortunately not much was used so could easily move to the expansion modules. 
  7. This is where I would be focusing. Depending on the size of the servo, I would expect it to react back (as you would ) Do you have the manual that breaks down the control word? Perhaps that a single bit that is not being set correctly via the MC instructions? I am thinking that you should be able to do everything without the SYSMAC motion instructions to confirm the PLC-Drive functionality & that there is something missing in the actual motions maybe. (you will probably have to un-allocated the control word though.?) This is just an assumption though, but maybe something I would be trying if it were me.


    No. You need to do the following: MOVR 100.0 IR0 MOV D0 DR0   XIC DR0,IR0 to use the bit in the offset (apologies for the AB reference :( )   Also, your code below the indirect function will undo what you are trying to do anyway.        
  10. Omron CP1L-EM Wonderware Intouch Driver?

    Use CJ1. All that does is assist in the available IO memory (or similar) & where things are stored. as an FYI, DASOMFINSEnet has been replaced by OMRONFINS, which is a shame as DASOMFINSEnet was a far superior version.! DASOMFINSEnet will still run though, but I’ve run into OS issues with later versions of windoze.
  11. Plants with many PLCs OMRON

    so it does, wonder how that works considering sysmac doesn't have the same windoze file access? Maybe it launches sysmac itself?
  12. Plants with many PLCs OMRON

    That probably wouldn’t work easily with SYSMAC ?
  13. My comment was Rockwell to Danfoss FC302, not Omron to Rockwell PF525..   Are you trying to connect a Rockwell PF525 to an Omron Sysmac controller?  
  14. NX1P2 to Indusoft communication

    Old thread alert...   But, Only port #2 supports FINS...  However, Port #1 supports OPC-UA which can work with Indusoft/Aveva Edge      

    Is your requirement to keep the connection open & continuously send/receive? I suspect this code here is your problem. 42: RecArray2 := RcvSocketDat; Stage :=INT#43; Stage == 43 is close socket.  If your intent is to send/receive continuously, then there is no need to close the socket once the data is received.   Without doing all the leg work for you, I would consider the following: 1.Moving Stages 40-41-42 to be always running if 'DoTCP' is True & socket.IsConnected 2. Either alternating 500-510 or running them both at the same time, depending on the server requirements. (applications I have done worked this way..)
