  1. I have had similar experience with the MicroLogix 1400.  For the project, make sure you verify the project.  Go online with the PLC and Clear Processor Memory. then re-download the project.  Hope this helps  
  2. boa noite!

    poderia me enviar o ladder com o fx3u funcao pid com os parametrosd

  3. MicroLogix 1100 - Keypad Question

    Under the LED Function file in RSLogix 500 or RSLogix Micro is listed the internal bits for using the buttons. You will have to create your own logic to navigate the menus. The "OK" and "ESC" buttons are available. Use the following format: LCD:0.OK LCD:0.ESC
  4. Here is an answer that I gave in another forum. http://www.plctalk.net/qanda/showpost.php?p=639782&postcount=5
  5. There is a cheaper way, the software RSLogix Micro. I think i saw it listed at $129.00 per copy and only programs the MicroLogix family of PLC's. The downside is you can not have RSLogix 500 and RSLogix Micro loaded on the computer at the same time, it must be one or the other. Hope this helps.
  6. It sounds like you have to configure COMM 0 for Modbus Master communications. It looks like you are communicating with the ML1100 by Ethernet so the DF1 Port should have the 1763-NC01 connected to it. You can do a search here and find the communication settings as they have been discussed many times here.
  7. Micrologix 1000

    I have replaced many burnt out relays. I disassembled the MicroLogix and found the manufacturer of the relay, I believe it was Omron, and I desoldered and replaced the relay. Be careful when deslodering, I used a low wattage soldering iron, 7 watts I believe. I had replaced a few of the 16 I/O models and kept the "Bad" MicroLogix. When I found the relays and who to order from, at about $5.00 each, I repaired all of the bad relays in the Micrologix PLC's and when I had a problem, I replaced it with the repaired unit. Hope this helps.
  8. Using PID over RS485 with S500 Drive

    Here are the parameters that I set for communicating with a FX2N or a FX3U PLC. See attached immage.
  9. When transferring an application there are three options. Internal, My Computer and a third. The name escapes me right now. Select that for the source file and not My Computer. From My Computer, browse to path C:\\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Allen Bradley\PanelView Component\User Data\ I think this is the path. Hope this helps
  10. C600 is soooooooo slow!

    I have called and asked about the speed of the update time using Internet Explorer 7. I was told that the application of the Component PanelView HMI's were built on Firefox 2.0. The representative suggested that I use Firefox 2.0. He stated that they were unsure of Firefox 3.0 as it had not been tested. Hope this helps.
  11. logo programing

    if you are a ab head, there is a 12v plc from rockwell. 1763-L16DWD 12 - 24VDC, relay output
  12. It has been my experience with the ML1000 when clearing the fault you have to write a "0" to S:5/8 Retentive Data, in order for the fault to be cleared successfully. Using the attached picture as a guide, highlight the "1" in S:5/8 and type in a "0" and press enter. Press the "Clear Fault" button. Try putting it back into run mode.
  13. slcman, I looked up the GE QuickPanel and it does not support Ethernet/IP. Ethernet/IP is the communication protocol for the ML1100. I use the IDEC HG3F 10 inch and the HG4F 12 inch Touch Screens. They have built in Ethernet that uses Ethernet/IP communications. IDEC is updating the HG2F 6 inch Touch Screen to include an Ethernet port. Hope this helps.
  14. From the manual for the 22-SMC-232 converter there are sample programs in the manual. There are PLC's listed that will be able to communicate with the PowerFlex 40 Drives. Attached is the Manual that will explain the communications to the drives and the parameters required for communicating with 2 or more PowerFlex 40 VFD's 22comm_um002__en_p.pdf
  15. You do not need a Modbus card. you can use the DF1 communications to control the PF4 and PF40 VFD's Here iss a sample program using a SLC5/04 to PF4 and PF40 http://forums.mrplc.com/index.php?autocom=downloads&showfile=458 Hope this helps
