  1. Counting chain links on a conveyor

    ---| Running Reverse | --- [ = Count K1 ] ---------------- [ MOV K3785 Count ]
  2. plcModule.ActLogicalStationNumber = {StationNumer you set in MX Component};     int result = plcModule.open(); //Open the comm port    
  3. Im checking in my my software guy. 
  4. Have you used these Balluff modules before?  I have one that I was testing on, but hit a road block when the CC-link card must be some version or newer in order to run data read/write commands. 
  5. I spoke with my programmer, here is the manual that he used to write our software.  Basically he uses GetDevice to read data less than 2 words, and ReadDeviceBlock to read greater than 2 words.   MX Component Programming Manual

  8. I personally can't give you the guidance on how to connect, but I do know that our software programmer does exactly what you are asking with their code. I do know that you need MX Component installed on the PC, to establish the connection, it can't be done directly through the C# so that might be your missing link. 
  9. Input on the left vertical line

    | X0 | ----- [MC n1 M0] Stuff to run when X0 is on.. ---------------[MCR n1] Stuff that runs all the time
  10. The Bits that are SET by this button are reset by the PLC on a up-pulse only.  These functioned correctly at the time of the issue.  All the momentary bits shown are only on the HMI, and none controlled by the PLC at all.  These were supposed to break latched sequences such as this one shown here.  This is what did not work as expected.  But they have worked every other time before, and since without issue.   
  11. Its a GOT2000 and Q03UDE PLC I'm not sure what you mean about permissive logic.. But like I said, this system has been running & working for years.   Is it possible that the PLC scan 'missed' those momentary triggers? 
  12. This button performs the 8 actions when pushed.  Has anyone ever had an issue where some actions were not triggered?  This system has been running for years, but Tuesday we had an issue where only the first 2 actions happened, but the remaining ones did not.

    I made this excel sheet to help me remember, let me know if it helps you too.  CC Link Station Address.xlsx

    Most VFD have a multiple input speed selection settings. Maybe that would be easier?  Or can you just use analog signal and a POT or HMI to set the output?   
  15. Anyone used an RFID reader on company badges?

    We are Mits standardized here. Normally Q06UDV.  I have done several Barcode readers over ethernet, and am very familiar with that setup and use.  My question was more aimed at your second point about the challenge of using the data. I was hoping for some examples of how others have done that.  The MES system you mentioned, were you able to tie directly with the central ID system or did you have to create a separate copy of the database?
