  1. PLC Simulator Online

    Wow that sounds great.  What time frame are you expecting for all of these stages? How are you making your money if you are offering this for free? Would you mind me promoting this free programming tool once you have it further developed? Thanks, Garry https://accautomation.ca/  
  2. PLC Simulator Online

    Hi Mag, Your plc simulator looks good so far. What are your plans for additional instructions? How about your plans for rung comments? Will you be able to save your logic?  I have been using PLC Fiddle. https://www.plcfiddle.com/ https://accautomation.ca/plc-fiddle-online-editor-and-simulator-in-your-browser/ https://accautomation.ca/series/plc-fiddle-online-plc-editor-and-simulator-in-your-browser/ Good work so far. Thank you, Garry
  3. EA3 Micro Panel

    You would have to read the time and date from the connected PLC. Using the Numeric Display Indicator on the screen you would point to the Hours, Minutes, Seconds, Day, Month or Year variables in the PLC. https://accautomation.ca/c-more-micro-hmi-object-buttons-and-indicators/ Here is a series on the EA3 HMI https://accautomation.ca/series/c-more-micro-hmi/ Regards, Garry
  4. Here is another HMI headless unit that would be able to send out Emails. https://www.automationdirect.com/c-more/headless-hmi Here is how the email will be programmed in the C-More unit. https://accautomation.ca/c-more-ea9-hmi-series-panel-sending-email/ I hope this helps you out.

  5. Beginner Support Required

    https://dl.mitsubishielectric.com/dl/fa/document/manual/plc_fx/jy997d16701/jy997d16701r.pdf http://www.plctalk.net/qanda/showthread.php?t=47307 In the above manual look at "4. Analog Input" this will give you a description and sample program. You will find the unit number for addressing is based on position. I hope this helps you out. Regards, Garry
  6. FX3G-Create SCADA system from existing PLC

    You will need to be a little more specific on what you want to achieve. I would start by looking at the communication protocols that your PLC is capable of handling. I believe that it can communicate Modbus RTU (Serial) via RS232 or RS485. https://dl.mitsubishielectric.com/dl/fa/document/manual/plc_fx/jy997d16601/jy997d16601q.pdf Take a look at AdvancedHMI. This is a software package that is written in VB.net and runs on Visual Studio. It has the drivers already programmed for both Modbus RTU and TCP. Once you collect the data into the computer then you can save it to a database. Sharing the data online can be done in several different ways. We really need to know what you need to accomplish. I hope this helps you out. Regards, Garry

  8. https://support.industry.siemens.com/tf//WW/en/posts/send-real-floating-values-to-client-with-modbus-tcp/144597?page=0&pageSize=10 " Note also that Modbus only works with 16-bit registers, so transferring a REAL value (32-bit IEEE format) will require you to send 2 contiguous Modbus registers and reassemble them as REAL values in your partner " In the PLC are you putting together the two 16 bit registers and then interpreting them as a float? I would look at inputting the integer number and decimal number separately on the HMI. Then use the PLC to interpret the data. Just a thought. Regards, Garry  
  9. Gender Neutral Electrical Connector

    Thanks for the bit of levity.  
  10. Help Program C40P Using Computer

    Thanks for the information gtsuport. Garry
  11. Help Program C40P Using Computer

    The C40P is an expansion unit. Do you have the full part number of the unit? If this is an expansion it will connect to the K series CPU unit. The K series would then be programmed with the host link unit and software as gtsuport mentioned. You can also use a handheld unit. Most of the parts can still be obtained from EBay. https://accautomation.ca/purchase-find-parts/omron-c20k-c28k-c40k-c60k/#Special Regards, Garry
  12. Scu41 pin layout

    Your Pin assignment is correct. http://forums.mrplc.com/index.php?/topic/32655-connect-cj1m-to-pc-using-rs422/ Regards, Garry
  13. +1 drforsythe Very good answer. Another question is how they are investing in the IIoT. MQTT? Regards, Garry
  14. Ethernet Information

    I would look at AdvancedHMI. https://www.advancedhmi.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=2 What is AdvancedHMI? Free software that will run on a windows PC and communicate to your PLC. The drivers have been written for AB PLCs. See the link below for a demo on connecting. The package was written in VB.net and runs on Visual Studio. It is then very easy to connect and update a database. https://www.advancedhmi.com/index.php?main_page=page&id=14&chapter=0 Regards, Garry
  15. Trouble connecting from PC to CP1H-XA

    +1 Bits N Bytes Are you using a USB to Serial from the computer and then the cable into the PLC? If so then not all USB to serial cables will work. I have had success with the Ugreen cable. https://www.ugreen.com.cn/products/usb-2-0-to-rs232-serial-cable?variant=15398911737901 https://accautomation.ca/omron-cp1h-establish-communication/ This link will take you through the process of communicating serially to the CP1H. (RS485) It will be similar.  Regards, Garry

  18. D memory data not moving into instructions

    +1 gtsuport If you are entering data via a communication program like AdvancedHMI, the PLC must be in Monitor mode and not Run. Regards, Garry
  19. CX-Programmer will not open

    Hi Evan, I have not seen this before with CX-Programmer, but I have with other programs. Call up the windows task manager. Then select Applications. If you right-click on the CX-Programmer and select maximize the application should then be seen.  Let us know how you make out. Regards, Garry 
  20. ~4 Line LED display over ethernet/ip recommendations

    https://cdn.automationdirect.com/static/specs/viewmarq4line.pdf The above will support Modbus TCP through the ethernet port. You could also look at an EA9-RHMI unit. An HDMI cable would attach to a large screen TV monitor. This would come in under your budget price and give a good display inside the plant. https://www.automationdirect.com/c-more/headless-hmi I hope this helps you out. Regards, Garry
  21. It will not matter if you connect the common point to 0V or 24VDC. https://accautomation.ca/wiring-3-wire-dc-npn-and-pnp-sensors/ Regards, Garry
  22. Conversion CQM1H -> CJ2M

    Hi Jeroen, Is it possible that the Mov(021) #9 D1 was actually @Mov(021) #9 D1?  The difference is the differentiate up which means a one-shot on the move. Just a thought. Regards, Garry
  23. NA Alarm Popup Location & Size

    https://assets.omron.eu/downloads/manual/en/v118_na_series_programmable_terminal_software_users_manual_en.pdf I assume this is an Omron NA Series HMI. What about using popup pages instead of the alarms. It looks like you have more flexibility in the display. Just a thought. Regards, Garry
  24. Raspberry Python FX3U

    How about using AdvancedHMI. This will communicate to your FX3U using Modbus. https://dl.mitsubishielectric.com/dl/fa/document/manual/plc_fx/jy997d26201/jy997d26201g.pdf https://www.advancedhmi.com/index.php?main_page=page&id=14&chapter=0 Here is how to load AdvancedHMI on the Rasberry Pi https://www.advancedhmi.com/forum/index.php?topic=666.0   I hope this helps you out.
