  1. Comm1 orange LED steady and communication problems

    If you need to backup, restore or program the PLC, you can use the RS232C Port. You'll need a Host Link cable.
  2. Omron C200H CN225 Cable

    Assuming your cable is not completely destroyed, the order is the same on both ends. Main Color/Sqare Dot PNK/BLK PNK/RED YEL/BLK YEL/RED WHT/BLK WHT/RED GRY/BLK GRY/RED TAN/BLK TAN/RED
  5. Omron C200H CN225 Cable

    Interesting, Omron is usually really good about documenting their cables. My search didn't turn up anything. This one would be very difficult to make without the proper tools. I have one here on my desk. What do you need?
  6. Can a CJ2M communicate to a C200H??

    Nice. Having the C200HG should make it a lot easier. I'm pretty sure you can do it via ethernet if you have room for another module on the C200HG. Unfortunately, I've never done this. Thus my short answer. :) Let's hope that BobB or Michael Walsh will respond with some details. In the meantime have a look at the manuals for the Ethernet modules for each CPU. This will contain details on the communication protocols. Omron is very good with backward compatibility. I do have the equipment here in our shop to test but don't have the extra time right now.
  7. Can a CJ2M communicate to a C200H??

    I will give the short answer, yes. Although I don't believe it will be the protocol the current C200H are using.  What is the complete part number of your C200H? This makes a difference especially in hardware. The CPU01/CPU02 (pre-alpha series) will require an LK201 Host Link module. They come in CPU mount and rack mount style. You are probably already aware since you have some communicating with each other already. They are most likely communicating via PC Link since you say they are sharing LR registers. The CJ2M does not support PC Link that I'm aware, and it does not have LR registers. At minimum, they can communicate via Host Link protocol. You may have to write some ladder using TXD/RXD. There may be easier methods but first tell us the full part numbers on the CPU and serial port/modules.  
  8. Devicenet problems

    DeviceNet is indeed finicky. Along with the above advice, check that you have a strong 24VDC at your remote location. If your problem persists, you may want to use a dedicated power supply. Preferably at the remote location if you can manage it. 
  9. I think this would depend on the communications protocol used and will have to include all other connections. The Ethernet/IP Units Operation Manual W465 gives guidance for calculating the number of connections.
  10. Data Types for MAM instruction

    I understand the confusion here. This is not a conversion. The DINT to DINT here is the transport only via your DeviceNet. If you monitor them in the DINT state, they will actually appear to be gibberish as they are actually REAL. No bits were changed during the process you describe here.
  11. CJ1M con CJ1W-EIP21 a ControlLogix

  12. NB designer save multiple screenshots

    I doubt this feature will be added to the NB. The NA5 will do this and much more.
  13. Nice! Thank you for your results. I was actually wanting to try this myself as a home project on a Raspberry Pi. I'm glad to see others have success with it.
  14. Do you know the IP address of the CP1L-E? Do you have CX Programmer? I have not tried using the software in the link I provided. The user in the link had success. Also the author has provided his email address.
