  1. GE Fanuc HMI

    It's connected to a 90-30 series plc, I think it uses an ADC 311 COPROC in the rack. Looks like I need to recreate it all on a modern HMI.
  2. GE Fanuc HMI

    Hi Can anyone tell me what programming software is required to extract a program from this GE Fanuc HMI? Any manuals available for it? Thanks in advance
  3. GE Fanuc HMI PC

    Hi Does anyone know anything about the attached panel PC which communicates with a GE 90/30 PLC.  Any information about how it was programmed would be useful.  It seems to be a SCADA type application that runs on Windows 3.11 and is way past its replacement date! Thanks in advance
  4. Move DB block data to Output Bytes

    Hi I'm using TIA 16 and S7 1200 and have a DB block set up with 20 bytes of data which I want to move to QB100 for 20 bytes. I've done it with individual MOVE instructions e.g MOVE DB3.DBB0 -> QB100, MOVE DB3.DBB1 -> QB101 etc which is working OK but feel there must be a better way with MOVE_BLK or MOVE_BLK_VARIANT. I can only find examples where data is moved from DB to DB and can't seem to get anything to compile with MOVE_BK or MOVE_BLK_VARIANT. Any ideas? Thanks in advance
  5. S5 STL to ladder question

    Hi, I have the following STL code in an old S5 processor, can someone tell me if I've transcribed it to ladder correctly please? :O    F11.0 :O    F11.1 :(    I81.6 :AN    F11.2 :AN    F11.2 :O    I81.6 :A    Q64.3 :) :A    I64.6 :A    I64.0 :AN    F3.6 :=    Q64.3 F11.0    I81.6   F11.2   F11.3    I64.6    I64.0    F3.6                  Q64.3 [ ]---------[ ]-----[/]---------[/]--------[ ]--------[ ]-------[/]-------------------( )           |         |                         | F11.1 |         |  I81.6    Q64.3 | [ ]------          ---[ ]------[ ]-------   Thanks in advance
  6. DH485 RJ45 switch or hub

    I have connected 2 dtam units to one slc 5/03 with an rj11 (I think) splitter.  You might be able to use this as a method but I have not ever attempted this.
  7. old software needed

    Have a word with your local vendor about logic master 90, it's also bundled on the versapro and profiecy software disks I think.  Get a trial copy of either.
  8. TSX 47-30 Memory fault LED

    Probably lost the program, but also watch out for faulty PSU AND lost program.  If it was a black tab on memory module that would be a eeprom module but as it is a red one it will drop it's program.
  9. Messaging a PLC 2 over a 1756 DHRIO connection with an L81E

    Not sure this is possible with the CLX, I think your PLC2 needs to be on DH+    
  10. 1747 - L532C SLC 5/03 fault

    If you haven't removed the memory module I've had this when the power supply is faulty.  It powered up (there was a slight delay noticeable) but it dumped the program.  Changing the psu fixed the issue. Of course the memory module could be faulty also.
  11. What is wrong with this SFC

    Have a look at the TONR instruction
  12. What is wrong with this SFC

    Step 0 is set to a type N - non-stored which means the code in the step is continually scanned, so every time you set BACKWASH_START_PB to a 1 the code in step 0 sets it back to a zero.  If you click the square box next to the N you can set the Qualifier to Pulse (Rising Edge) which means the code in step 0 will only be scanned on the rising edge of the step becoming true.  
  13. Thanks for the info, I sorted it out this morning. The software is XBT L100 which runs on a windows 98 machine (in dos mode), its downloadable from the Schneider website.  The cable is: 2-2, 3-3, 5-7 plus 6+4 linked, 7+8 linked at the 9 pin (pc) end. As you say its well obsolete but the client had purchased a spare from ebay and I needed to get the program from another unit to download into this one.
  14. Can anyone tell me what programming software is used on one of these terminals and also if there is a special cable required.
  15. Fault Code 80

    You need a rung in your ladder program to put the devicenet module in run, download the manual from ab.com.
