  1. Hi, I recently scavenged a S7-300 from an old machine. The processor has a CP343-2P ASi interface module. Together with it came about 50 meters of ASi cable and eight IFM AC2504 (link below). So, I have gotten a license for TIA Portal from my local school and is in the process of trying to figure out how to talk to the IO slaves. Wiring is complete. I have to wait for a programming cable to arrive in the mail, so I figured I could use the time to ask for help. Do anyone have an example project using these type of devices? Or otherwise could offer help in how to talk to it. I really cant find much information at all online about how to use ASi and even less when it comes to third party ASi stuff.   //Kind regards.       IFM AC2504:
  2. CP1L and timers in ST

    As promised, here is the solution: Input Variables: Output Variables: And to call that from ST when programming for a CP1L CPU : Create a variable with a function block reference of the Timer Ladder Function Block. timerVariable(EN:= EN, TON:= condition, TimerValue:= number_or_variable, Out=>boolOutFlag);   //Regards  
  3. CP1L and timers in ST

    I'll post it when back to work, whenever that happens, I seem to have gotten sick.
  4. Hi, is it possible to pass a com-port from the computer to a simulated PLC-session in CX-Programmer? I can't get enough budget from my boss to buy a play-PLC for bus-experimenting, but I can buy a RS485 to RS232 adapter. Since I can't emulate MODBUS messages, I'd like to connect to a physical network during simulation.   Edit: Also, if anyone would be so kind: Would this be a sane way of implementing serial communication? //Kind regards.
  5. CP1L and timers in ST

    Thank you. After some searching I managed to make a workaround. The file referenced in the linked thread is not available to me, so had to figure out how to do it myself. :) //Kind regards
  6. CP1L and timers in ST

    Hello, I'd like some help with using timers in structured text, how to make block independent timers like in Ladder function blocks in ST? like  IF condition THEN enabledTimerVar; END_IF; IF timerFired THEN doStuff; END_IF; CX-Programmer says I cant use the TIMER datatype. //Kind Regards.
  7. We always use punch-tools at work, all from Greenlee. A hand-pumped hydraulic puncher is used to make the cutouts. It works well for 0-3 mm iron and 0-2 mm stainless. We have used them on 3mm stainless too, but that risks damaging the punches. And we figured that the 45x45 square punch we bought as a test works totally fine on 1.5 mm stainless and 2 mm iron with said hydraulic pump. Something like this but with stainless punches:
  8. Hi, Dunno where else to ask, so I'll just vent my question here. I've recently gotten into EPLAN and since there is like zero google results on anything regarding it, I'd be grateful to receive some help. 1:  I'm trying to put down some Siemens Sirius ACT command points onto the drawings, but I cant seem to link them...   See. 2: Can I change the coloring of wires to match what the real wires is going to have?   See.      Ref from ACAD E   //Kind regards for any help in these issues.
  9. Omron CP1L + Danfoss FC-51

    Just an update to my own post, since I has now solved the issue. Supplied is a PDF of the complete program if anyone else is looking for a solution to the same problem. BusOccupied input should be used for multi-converter setups. Supposedly its externally setup to "join" all busy-outputs of these frequency converters with immediate update on both input and output. This is to ensure no two controls try to write/read at the same time. Other inputs should be fairly self explanatory. //Regards. DBoll-VFD_FC51.pdf MainPLC-VFD_FC51.pdf
  10. CP1L-M60 PID VFD control

    The machine I'm Sourcing the RPM from is not connected to the control network. So I have no "Master", hence follower is a bit out of the question. VFD in question is a Danfoss FC51 Edit: But the current idea is to simply rely on the RPM to Frequency formula and hope that the result is close enough.
  11. CP1L-M60 PID VFD control

    I found some relatively good working parameters... Tho I dunno why or how to tune them further... Also, Autotune fails horribly... +1 P = #0500 +2 I = #0010 +3 D = #0010 +4 T = #0064 +5 = #000C +6 = #1515 +7 = #0000 +8 = #2000 +9 = #0000 ... = #0000 Any ideas on how to tune it? Setpoint is RPM Feedback is RPM Output is a value 0-2000 hex corresponding to 0-100 Hz RPM is roughly given by the formula RPM = Hz* (2 / poles) * 60, poles in this case being 4. But lots of factors impact RPM, like load. Also, the Frequency Drive is slow to change, with internal ramp times, so its a bit hard for the PID to keep up So, to maintain a certain rpm, the output needs to stay "on" at a given level +- a couple of 0.x hz. //Kind regards for any feedback.
  12. CP1L-M60 PID VFD control

    I have (currently) a program to convert the encoders pulses to rpm. m/s not in practice yet cause I dont have any belts connected to it, so a fixed 10-ratio is in place for that. But the RPM should be fairly correct. I attach some picture prints of my program, both the sensor reading and regulator control. And I did try autotune but the motor still goes on and off priodically and does not keep around a value. //Kind regards.  
  13. Hi, I'm trying to create a regulator for keeping the speed of a motor match that of another. My feedback is pulses per second, converted to rpm or m/s. My output is an absolute frequency 0 to 1FFF (hex) representing 0-100% hertz.  How do I configure a PID or PIDAT block to regulate this? My attempts have all resulted in weird data or the MV being 0 to something far to low. //Kind regards, me  
  14. Need help with RS485 comm for CP1L

    Thank you for the links. I had missed the fact that its 3 words and then the message in bytes.... :P In any case, here is my work in case anyone else wants it. VERY simple communications, no feedback or status checking. //Kind regards
  15. Hi, I'm trying to build a very simple communications module for talking to a Danfoss FC51 Inverter, however, I'm stuck and is getting error on trying to change the speed... Anyone familiar with how to use the Serial Comms that could help with how its done? Rewrite in ladder is OK too, I'm just not good enough to do this heavy things in ladder. //Kind regards.
