  1. Connecting CPM1 to KEPServerEX5

    Thank you very much I tried the Host link driver with the C200 PLC and it worked.      
  2. Connecting CPM1 to KEPServerEX5

    Hello there, I'm having a problem with connecting my Omron CPM1 PLC with KEPServerEX5. The problem is that I can't find any drivers that support a serial connection with the CPM1. The only driver that comes close to what I'm looking for is the Omron FINS Serial driver, but that one only supports the following devices: Even if i choose the CVM1 (that has simular TAG-addresses as the CPM1) I can't get any connection because it requires an ID with the following format (UU.AAA.NNN.) and I have no idea where to get this. I also tried to using the U-CON (user-configurable) driver, but I can't figure out how to get this working. I'm running a program in the CPM1 with a Input(00.01) , Output(10.01) and Timer(T000). I used the Transaction Editor to import these tags in KEPWare: I checked the serial port settings and they are correct. The only thing I'm not sure about is the device ID, but I tried 0 until 5 and I don't think it could be any higher than that. I'm hoping any of you guys is experienced with making a serial connection to KEPWare and is able to help me with this problem. Jimmy
  3. Remote Run/stop on FX0

    No problem, thanks for trying it out. Would have been easier than using the M devices, but I'm still happy I now have a way to remote switch RUN/STOP state.
  4. Remote Run/stop on FX0

    The project I'm working on is making a training and test area with old/legacy PLC's. This will give service engineers the possibility to work with PLC's they haven't worked with for a while. Because a lot of plants still use old/legacy PLC's. But thanks for the tip. I'm going to ignore the error for now and hope it won't cause any problems in the feature.  
  5. Remote Run/stop on FX0

    This is the reason I started this topic :P If the PLC is in RUN, GX Dev won't set it in STOP mode automatically, so the download won't start and it gives me the following error message: So I thought there must be a way to set it in RUN/STOP mode using GX Dev, but I couln't find any buttons for it. After the good help in this topic, I now know how to START/STOP the PLC using GX Dev by forcing the M devices in the Entry data monitor. But I still have to set the PLC in STOP mode before downloading and then back in RUN afterwards. GX Dev won't do that automatically.  
  6. Remote Run/stop on FX0

    I get the error message just after I write my program to the PLC. After this error message I get a "Completed" message, so I think I can ignore it but I'd like to be sure  
  7. Remote Run/stop on FX0

    @Veganic If I read the manual right, I need a graphic FX-DU unit to use "SWITCH" devices. I got it working using the Entry data monitor. Apparently the PLC need to be manually toggled to STOP mode (using the switch on the PLC). When the PLC is in STOP I can use the M8035 and M8036 to set it in RUN mode and the M8037 to set it  in STOP again. Only after Writing to the PLC I get the following error message. The only information I can find about this error is displayed below. Does any of you maybe have an idea what this error message means and if I can ignore it, because it seems like the download is successful and the program that I downloaded works like it should.
  8. Remote Run/stop on FX0

    @collinsd70 I'm probably not looking in the right place, but I can't find the CPU properties you are referring to. I'm using GX Developer Version 8.55H, maybe that has something to do with. @Wasan I tried forcing the M devices ON via the Entry data monitor, but after forcing the PLC in STOP (by forcing M8035 and then M8037 ON) I still can't write to the PLC and I still get the next error message. "The PLC is in RUN mode, so writing cannot be done. Execute again after the PLC stops" . What document did you get the information from? I would like to take a look at the example operation in Chapter 10. @Gambit Thanks for the tip. But the Mitsubishi PLC is only one of the PLC's I'm working with,  so I'm using the same converter for all of them and it works perfectly
  9. Remote Run/stop on FX0

    Hello, I'm working on a project where I'm trying to create Remote Acces to old PLC's. The Mitsubishi FX0-20MR-ES is one of those PLC's. I got the remote access working by using a Serial to Ethernet converter, but I just found out that FX0 serie can only be put in Run or Stop mode by manually flipping the RUN/STOP switch on the PLC. I was wondering if there is any software solution that enables me to "simulate" the stop function while the switch is still set on RUN. That way I can still program the PLC from a remote location. I know this is possible with some PLC's by turning off a whole registry in the software, that way the PLC thinks it is in STOP while it's actually still running. I just don't know how this would work with the FX0. I hope someone can give me the solution I'm looking for. I'm looking forward to the reactions, Jimmy
