  1. RSLogix 5000 firmware

    hello, I want to ask, maybe some of you know about this, I want to take a program on compactlogix but it has a firmware version 19.xx while the rslogix application I have is version 21.xx, there are several options offered by the application to be able to take the program, update the firmware in compactlogix or downgrade the rslogixku application to version 19.xx. if i upgrade the firmware in compactlogix, what about the program is the program safe or not, and if i upgrade the firmware will the program in compactlogix work properly?
  2. Clamping PID in Compact Logix

    Hello all,  There are two pressure gauges in a line with a flow of water. The flow is controlled by the pumps which is controlled by the PID whose control variable is pressure gague -2 . In ideal condition the pressure gauge -2 remains at 55 psi and pressure gauge -1 stays at 82 PSI. But in the line if someone opens a manual valve then pressure gauge - 1 reads 100 psi because the pump is running as per pressure gauge 2 . Is is possible to clamp the PID so that pressure gauge 1 remains at 82 psi.    FYI: Pressure gauge 1 is right after the pumps and pressure gauge 2 is at the end of the line. 
  3. Hello all,  I have a temperature sensor with a reading range of 10F to 212 . The input card I am using is an Allen Bradley 1734 IE8C 8 Channel Analog current input. The current input values are 4-20 mA. Currently I have my raw low at 4000 and raw high at 20000. Can anyone explain how do we go about selection of this values ? I found these values in the configuration tag of the input card properties.  Thank You 
  4. Searching the forum did not provide me with any useful results. If there is another post with an answer, my apologies. I had ran into an issue with a 1769-L32E processor running out of memory a couple of times. Is there any software or easy ways to analyze an entire RSLogix 5000 project and show how much memory programs, routines, UDTs, AOIs, etc. are using?  Ideally I would like to be able to find what components of the project is taking up so much memory quickly since our company standard is to use UDTs and there is a lot to look through. Thank you!
  5. GLX Safety Question

    So im looking for recommendations on a safety PLC application, and I'd like some advice. So the addiction is zero motion detection, were using a 5069-L306ERMS2, 5069-IB8S, 5069-OBV8S. What id like to know if its feasible and safe. Can a zero speed detection code be written and safe in a PLC? I mean you can buy a zero speed detection safety relay, and two generic sensors , one PNP, and one NPN, and its just watching the pulses to happen in a predetermined manor and that both transition in the correct manor and that they both stop. So why or why not do this in a PLC? Any advice on how to do it, and considerations or advice?  What are peoples thoughts and or advice?
  6. Hi All I need to receive data from a PC application using UDP on my Logix5563 PLC, Is there any example applications that I can follow? as the documentation does not really guide you for UDP open communication.   Kind regards Morne
  7. RSLogix5000 Transfer function Bumpless transfer between two inputs. If criteria or FLAG is true, then transfer from input-1 to input-2 at a prescribed ramp rate, and then release the output to match the selected input without rate restrictions.  Issue: The issue is that upon the status of particular input (FLAG), the control valve demand jumps from 0 to whatever the output of the PID’s Low Select value is (maybe 50% or 80% or other). Request: Ideally, I would like to mimic or replicate the Transfer algorithms provided in other control systems, as described below . The TRANSFER algorithm performs a transfer between the two inputs.  The output is equal to the IN2 input if the digital input FLAG is TRUE, and the IN1 input if the digital input FLAG is FALSE.  The algorithm automatically performs a bumpless transfer between the track input and the selected input when a tracking request is removed.  The algorithm ramps to the selected input (IN1 or IN2) at the specified track ramp rate (TRR1 or TRR2).  Internal tracking may be selected to allow a bumpless transfer between IN1 and the IN2 inputs.  Individual track ramp rates may be initialized to ramp from the IN1 to the IN2 and from the IN2 to the IN1. Attached is RSLogix5000 program "transfer.acd" Thanks.
  8. Is there an easy way to copy an Excel table into a string array in RSLogix? instead of doing it one by one?
  9. Can Anyone tell me what is the shortcut on the keyboard to open the string box to enter the text instead of mouse click? RSlogix 5000 PLC.
  10. Rslogix Array Search

    Hello,  I have 30 recipes(g_Blend_Recipes) and want to search for an item number in the recipes and compare it with what the operator enters on the HMI. The recipes itself is an array and there are 5 item numbers in each recipe. I read about the FSC instruction but did not figure a way out yet. I am attaching a picture of the recipe. Any help would be appreciated.

  12. Autotuning Kinetix 350

    Hell PLC World! I have been trying for several weeks in my spare time at work to tune an Allen Bradley Servo Motor.  Below is the list of hardware I am currently using: - CompactLogix Motion Controller (1780-L33ERM) - Kinetix 350 Driver (2097-V34PR5-LM) - MPL Series Rotary Servo Motor (MPL-B310P-MJ74AA) I have been using RSLogix5000 for testing and I plan to use it to develop a simple conveyor type program later.  I have tried a list of things which will be below, but to no avail, I cannot simply jog the motor for any period of time without triggering a position, velocity or bus voltage error.  I have tried changing the motor, driver and feedback cable to no avail.  Here is the process I have used: 1) Add the hardware to RSLogix5000 (PLC, Driver and Motor) 2) Configure the motor 3) Run the hookup test.  This works flawlessly.  The motor will slowly turn independently on the feedback test for as many revolutions as I input.  This is what makes me think I am doing something wrong in the tuning process. 4) Run autotune process with the velocity, acceleration and jerk set well below the limits of the hardware.   5) Attempt manually control motion 6) Recieve error I have tried changing the input from trapezoidal to S-Curve, changed velocity and position limits, manually tuned velocity gains in a myriad of configurations.  I have swapped legs on the 3 phase input (which made matters worse). I suppose it is possible that multiple pieces of hardware are faulty because this equipment was previously used, but I still cannot wrap my head around why the hookup test would work so flawlessly, yet I cannot just get the servo to rotate at an equivalently low speed. If anyone recognizes my mistake, I would be eternally grateful.  I am an intern studying control systems in graduate school and as popular as AB is, I would sure like to get some experience with it.  Thanks in advance!  
  13. CompactLogix E/IP to Kuka KRC 4

    Hello everyone,   I need to communicate a CompactLogix to a Kuka KRC 4 by Ethernet/IP but I do not know to generate the EDS file..... any clue please ?
  14. I am needing some guidance on an application I'm working on. I'm trying to obtain data from a profinet slave device to an Allen Bradley compactlogix PLC. I am using a Prosoft PLX82-EIP-PNC profinet-/ethernet-ip gateway as a median to allow me to access the profinet data. In RSlogix5000, I have created an EIP Class 1 connection for the profinet controller and AB PLC (248 words of input data, 248 words of output data). The same structure is created in the profinet controller (248 words of input data, 248 words of output data). The profinet gateway and PLC are communicating properly. From my profinet slave device, I have a specification that the data is structured within a 23 byte format. Connecting to my profinet gateway, I can see this data. I have attached an image that shows the specification of the profinet data and the data values displayed inside the profinet controller. From the PLC side, I'm needing to be able to see this data and put it in meaningful values. I am using the profinet slave device's internal temperature as an example to work towards. I'm not sure the best way to be able to handle this data and structure it to a meaningful value inside the PLC. (I am using the device's internal temperature as an example to try and get into the PLC).   Thanks,

  16. Hello I have a problem with dl-ep1 ethernet modul. I connected the module to a IL-1000 sensor amplifier. There is some problem with the communication. How should I adjust ? I made some pic about the trouble. The sensor is a IL-600 laser distance sensor. I dont know yet how can I get the actual value.  Anybody knows how to set this modul ? If I think correctly after the right setting, if I check the sensor output:0 then, I can see the actual value of the IL-600 sensor. But unfortunatelly this part also not so clear for me, because I can connect about 15 sensor this ethernet modul.  Thank you so much if anybody help.
  17. Client is wanting to use a 1734-AENTR with I/O and what not. When I go into the hardware tree to add I/O, its grayed out to add a new module to the hardware tree. JUST for this critter though, has anyone else experienced this?
  18. I'm having a difficult time updating some HMIs on a production floor using both Rslogix5000 and EzwarePlus. I've exported my CSV from RS, and in the importation stage, it shows I have no tags. However literally everything on the screen is already linked up to tags. When selecting an objects properties and clicking tags there, everything shows up. When in the address library nothing shows up, and my CSV after clicking import, does nothing.  Is there something brutally straight forward here that I'm just missing?
  19. ControlLogix DLL File

    Hello, I've been wracking my brain, but I thought I remembered there was a way to store and execute a DLL file inside of a ControlLogix (not softlogix) controller? You could use exposed functions inside the DLL to fit your needs. Am I going crazy? Or is this not possible? Any insight into this is much appreciated. Thanks, neech
  20. I need a program that will utilize 4 Banner Lights. They each have 3 colors except for the one on the top it has 5.... I need each to be on together, but I want the output color to be randomized. I'm brand new to PLC's and would like to use RSLogix 5000, this will be a giant help for me to play with and alter to further my learning. Thanks. Using 16 Outputs, but only 14 are used. Ive thought about an array possibly, but this is my first time trying to write code on 5000 ive used 500 in the past, and the whole tags thing is weird to me.

I wanna to know how to mask such a big number. Any help would be appreciated. I would be using RSlogix5000   Thanks Pratik 
  23. Hi, My Powerflex 525 Drive is currently working in the Project. I wanted to observe the drive parameters when the drive is running and live with PLC. I usually do that by getting online with the PLC (1756L72S) from RSLogix5000 and then by going in to the Drive Properties from the I/O Configuration folder i use to click on Drive tab and from there i was able to observe all the Drive parameters with the real-time values on which drive is running. Now when i try to observe the Same real time parameters on my other PF525 drive, i follow the same procedure as mentioned above till going into the Drive properties and when i try to click on drive tab its gives me a Screen with a message "AUTOMATIC CONNECTION FAILED". The status of drive in the drive properties still shows me that the drive is running. How can i observe the Real-time Parameters for this other PF525 Drive? Thanks.    
  24. I am very knowledgeable with RSLogix5 and RSLogix500, but want to become well-versed with RSLogix5000 advanced algorithms, strategies, and program types—(Ladder, Sequential Function Charts, Function Block Diag, Structured Text), and motion control, such as servo-controllers. . . mostly interested in structured text. I’m also interested in the nuances of RSLogix5000, ControlLogix & CompactLogix regarding design, on-line programming, and off-line programming, etc. Can anyone recommend a course or courses that cover this subject matter? Thanks!
  25. Hi, i'm a newbie in plc programming, i've started to learn recently. I have written a program by Rslogix 5000, but my tutor want me to build a HMI using Advanced HMI for simulation. Searching on goggle seem to be hopeless now, it would be thanksful if anyone can show me how to link RSlogix 5000 program with AdvancedHMI step by step, especially, i'm stuck at register IP address, port, com. Thanks for your reading!
