  1. Dear All I have a PLC and a 1769-SM2 so the red led is Steady Red. in manual wroted about this error : Cause:The module is unable to establish communication with the controller. Corrective Action: Cycle power to the controller. now I want know what it means to Cycle power to the controller? means is I power off the controller and then power on it? if it is I do it and the problem exist. could you help me on this issue? Best Regards 1769-SM2.pdf
  2. Hey, this may be an obvious question, but here goes: I have a CompactLogix L36ERM running RL5000 controlling one of our lead die cast machines. When I make a change to the program offline and need to download I always go and shut the machine down for safety reasons before downloading. One of our techs stopped the machine but left the control power and hydraulic pump on while downloading (something we are not supposed to do) when he finished downloading he switched it back to run mode and the machine closed on it's own and started right back up. This is a safety concern to me. We have a "close enable" tag that is true when all necessary conditions are met, and gets latched on when the machine is running in full auto. Before he downloaded the machine was at idle, meaning that the only way to close the machine would be to press the two dead-man switches to start the process. But, when he downloaded it started up automatically. Now I know the reason why is when the program was last saved, the "close enable" tag had a value of 1, it was latched on, so it bypassed the dead-man switches. A quick fix would be to save the program with that tag un-latched so that it can't start up on it's own after downloading. But, in case somebody saves the program while the machine is running and with that tag latched on, I need a better solution. Is there any tag or bit that goes true when a program is downloaded or when the mode of the PLC is switched from run to download to run? I want to manipulate that tag so that when I download it un-latches the "close enable" tag. I'm sure there is a way to do it, I'm just not even really sure what to search for in the online help. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks Howard
  3. Hello, I am trying to communicate with MicroLogix 1100 from CompactLogix. But I keep getting an error and It says connection failure. This is what I have done so far. Can anyone tell me what I am missing? Regards,
  4. Hey guys, so I feel like I must be doing something wrong here, well obviously since I cant get it to work. So I have a CompactLogix L36ERM running RSLogix5000, I've got 28 cards in total, all working except for one. My 1769-OF8V Analog Ouptut module. I just want to be able to output a 0-10v signal to a proportional valve module, specifically a Parker PCD00. Anyways, so I am online with the processor, everything is looking good, I/O is responding. I have the specific channel on that output module enabled in the module properties. I have tried changing the data type to every different option, I have raised and lowered the limits. I think I am addressing it correctly. I am just trying to move a value into that channel's data file. It appears to be moving the number in just fine, but when I put a meter on the output for that channel, I get 0V from the output to analog com. There is a little switch inside the module that allows you to use rack power or external 24V, I tried switching it down and using an external 24VDC source, I currently have it switched up to use the rack power. I'm lost. If somebody could please help me out and tell me if there is something obvious that I'm missing or doing wrong/ take me through an easy step by step way of setting this up for basic 0-10v output, that would be great. Sorry for being so new, I have attached a couple screenshots of the logic I'm using and the way I have it configured right now, but I have tried all different configurations. Thanks, Howard
  5. Hi all, So this is more of a theory / how would you attack this problem, question: I'm creating my first HMI and while playing around in FactoryTalk View Studio I noticed I can add objects to a screen. I can add a browser and with some work I can get it to display an HMTL file directly in the screen. So the browser in this case is opening a file stored locally, not something served up from the internet. Which opens up the question, could I write most of my HMI in HTML and Javascript? As a previous developer having the ability to control more of the UI would be amazing and perhaps easier to use/maintain. The only pitfall that I haven't been able to figure out is how to get real time values from the PLC. I'd welcome anyone's input on the idea in general or if someone knows a good method for getting/setting values from the PLC. Thanks!
  6. Hello all, I am experiencing an unusual (and what appears to be an unheard of) behavior in my CompactLogix L18ER controller. I am setting the date/time of the controller from my work station, however when I GSV WallClockTime, it is reporting 4 hours different. I have asked our local resources as well as done some forum and knowledgebase searching without result. Has anyone encountered this before? Attached is a screenshot of the controller time vs. the wall clock time. This isn't mission critical since it can be manually adjusted however I would like to understand what is taking place that would cause this behavior. Thanks!
  7. Hi all, I am using compact logix 5370 L3 controller(1769-L30ER) in hydro power plant application. So I have to now fetch electrical parameters from different brand component i.e. Siemens make General Management Relay which has profinet communication support. So the question now, is it possible to communicate directly with the controller and Siemens relay to display various electrical parameters? If not please suggest me what I can do to communicate with the relay in order to display the parameters in HMI. Awaiting for the replies. Thank you.
  8. Hi I have a customer who wants to communicate some setpoint information from their Siemens S7 PLC to a CompactLogix L32E PLC. I have installed a Prosoft PLX32-EIP-SIE for ethernet-to-Siemens Industrial Ethernet comms. On receiving a setpoint in from the S7 I then close a loop with some speed feedback in the L32E with a PID. I don't have any access to a Siemens S7 (or software) to test that the comms is working before the unit is shipped, all I have is the CompactLogix hardware. I do have a second CompactLogix PLC / PanelView HMI, but I dont think that this will give me the comms to talk to the SIE port in the Prosoft. I was hoping to have a simple slider on the PanelView to change an integer value to simulate the setpoints coming from the S7. Does anyone have any idea how I might implement this with AB hardware / RSLogix / FactoryTalk?
