  2. Hi:         I am planning to use NX with Encoder Card  couple with Omron Rotary Encoder for measuring product length. ( GX-EC0211 /EC0241) or may be (NX-EC0112, I read there is proble with this card , here https://forums.mrplc.com/index.php?/topic/34896-problem-pulse-reading-with-fast-counter-card-in-nx2/ ), but whatever it is I need to know is there any specific Instruction in Sysmac Studio that is tailored for Fast Counter or Encoder (something Like PRV in CX Programmer or special function in CJ-CT021 where start/stop counter and changeable preset counter are available).  The Length measurement is straight forward and is only a small part of the overall program.  Basically is Start ---> measure to length----> Cut --->Repeat again.  I read through the Instruction Reference Manual and I am unable to find one.   Anyone have any idea or any sample program (Sysmac Studio only ) that I can refer to ?    Thanks     
  3. Hello Guys, I would like to know if someone in here has made a VB script, there can delete files from the SD card in HMI? the reason why I ask, is I have some data logging on the HMI for our customer, but I would like the data logging to go in a loop so if the  SD-card is full, it will delete the oldest file instead of stop data logging. who is there somebody there can show me an example on a VB for this :)?
  4. VM With Studio 5000, FTVSE, Emulate 5000

    Ok, so I was tasked with setting up a virtual for our development team to be able to use to quickly deploy projects hmi, emulated plc, and studio 5000 project together on one virtual.  The main reason for this is when we get a project, many times we have to wait for an available plc.  We have plc’s in our rack but they can’t be used because they are being used for other projects.  I’ve used the compatibility matrix that Rockwell has but my boss wants to stick with Windows 10 Professional like we do in most our projects but according to the matrix, it looks like having FactoryTalk View SE Enterprise version 10, Studio 5000 Logix version 33 and Studio 5000 Logix Emulate version 33, FactoryTalk Gateway 6.11 and RSLinx 4.11 (mainly for communication to the emulated plc) but in the matrix says Windows 7 and Windows Server 2012  is the best choice.  I’ve ran into issues with Emulate opening, it takes up to 20 minutes to open.  Our licenses are on a server and accessed using FactoryTalk Activation Manager and all the activations are there.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  5. ROTARY AXIS POSITION ERROR

    Our C axis which is a rotary axis doesn't perform commanded postion, for eg if we give command of 360 deg, then it will only rotate 359 deg and for next time it will rotate 358 and so on for every rotation. i.e for every rotation its complete degree is reduced by 1 deg.  And system doesnt show any error.  By providing command of 360 deg, if we rotate or axis for 15 times then the last position at which it will stop will he 345 deg.    Please share valuable inputs to resolve that problem.
  6. Datamap Tests

    Hi All, Bit of a noob here. I started a new project where the client is upgrading their SCADA system, and as such every discrete needs to be toggled, and every analog range needs to be tested. I've created an excel database with every register, however, changing the value in the tag is too manual for me and I'm trying to find a way to increase the automation. I am looking for a solution where I can write directly with the tags instead of fumbling through the horror which is Proficy. I've seen some mentions of using the trial version of Ignition but I am struggling to get that to a useable state.    Any ideas greatly appreciated.
  7. Mitsubishi PLC with Fernhill SCADA

    Hi, Has anyone here has experience of using Fernhill SCADA with Mitsubishi PLC FX3U Series? I want to monitor PLC's data in real time through FX3U-ENET-ADP ethernet adapter using Fernhill SCADA software. Thanks in advance for the answer.
  8. Is their any method like virtual port adding to advanced HMI and cx programmer to view input and output from advanced HMI to Cx-programmer.?    
  9. Hello, I am trying to have single press and double press etc. functionality in my PLC program where for example, single press will turn on the motor whereas double press will turn on the motor for 5 seconds. Is it possible to achieve using ladder logic in sysmac studio, if yes, how? Thank you in advance.
  10. This is my first post so let me know if there is anything wrong with my post. I am learning Studio 5000 right now for an internship and created a simple project involving a pushbutton and some LEDs. Now I am trying to create an HMI for it in View Designer. My problem now is that I cannot establish a connection to the project because I do not have a physical HMI connected to my plc (Logix 5380). I can't find any way to emulate an HMI module so that I can get it to run. When I emulate my HMI project it tells me "Unable to reach controller TEST" where test is the name of my plc program. I added a module that matched the model in my HMI program (panelview 5510 2715p-t7wd) which I arbitrarily picked at random. But when I go into references and try to add HMI to Controller Path it does not show up (I'm assuming it's because it is faulting in the plc program since it doesn't actually exist). Is there not a way to emulate an HMI or add a virtual HMI to my studio 5000 program that I could connect to from View Designer?
  11. How do I communicate between an Omron NX1P2 Automation Controller and Indusoft Web Studio. This is the first time using an Automation Controller. I am familiar with communicating between Omron PLC's and Indusoft using OMETH drivers. What driver should I use?
  12. Is there anyone who can provide me driver for Yokogawa Energy Meter WT230 which can be installed in Kingview 6.53 SCADA.
  13. OMRON SYSMAC STUDIO

  14. DWord to Data Types

    Hello everyone, In Siemens and Rockwell I am used to transferring a double word to a tag that has a UDT data type of 32 bools. Which the binary bits (31..0) of the double word would align with the bits in a UDT data type of bool. If it was in a function block in Siemens I would call the double word address and move it to Area Register Address and transfer data to a tag of udt data type internal of the function block or could call a Move Block as well which will byte swap the bits but can be fixed with an STL call instruction (CAW). Since I am new to Sysmac Studio, how would I be able to do this? Looking at every Data Movement and Data Type Conversion functions all want a form of an array or elementary type, some wanting source and destination to be the same type. Any ideas?
  15. I am now part of a startup company based on energy optimisation of HVAC in buildings. I am assigned to have research on which SCADA system to select for HVAC energy optimisation. The model is in such a way that, we need to create a SCADA / HMI for the client's building on top of existing Building Management System (BMS) to achieve energy saving.  I am still an intern and I am requested to research on various SCADA options available in the market. I have few doubts regarding: 1. How can I select one SCADA / HMI over the other?  2.GE Cimplicity and Niagara 4 are two option which I am interested in. What is the major difference between both? (Price and functionality) 3. Is Tridium Niagara 4 a SCADA software? ( I read about it but I didn't understand as I am new to this field). Is it same like tia portal which is a software that is used to program plc and create user interface??
  16. I am pretty new to the SCADA world. I wanted to know what are the advantages of using a paid proprietary SCADA software such as WinCC, Wonderware, cimplicity over free software such as OpenSCADA, OpenAPI, IndigoSCADA and so on. I have read, there are more layers of security in the paid one. What does that mean? What are the other main differences between the paid and free ones out there in the market?
  17. Union

    Hello! I am trying to get hold of the bits in a word, i have read that union is the way to go. My problem is that i cant figure out how union works. I have made a union between a word (16bit) and an array(0...15). The way I understood this was that the word now automaticly updates the array so that when the least significant bit in the word should update array[00] and so on. This is not happening. When I monitor the variables I can see the word change, but nothing happens with the array. Have I misunderstood the consept and what should I do to get hold of the bits?
  18. Our IT department is on their annual crack down on administrator access and 'unauthorized' software. This year they are demanding to know why I need to run my laptop with administrator access. Besides the Simulator, what other functions will I not be able to use without administrator access? 
  19. CPU to Advaced HMI slow response

    HI all,  I have connected my CJ2M-CPU13 to Advanced HMI software via Hostlink (19200,7,2,E ) .  I connected to the serial port in CPU and just used ( didnt write any code or formating).   The HMI response is very slow ( almost 2+seconds).  I am not sure whats is wrong, Is it because i am using more words?  Anybody had this encountered this problem? Appreciate all suggestions and advices.    
  20. Hi guys, I just starting to use Sysmac Studio. Its a bit confusing as I am currently used to CJ series PLC. Usually, we can use P_1sec, P_0_2s and so on to create a simple clock pulse timer function. However, I couldn't find the command or FB to do that in Sysmac Studio. Anybody could explain on how to do that in Sysmac? Thanks 
  21. VBA issue on FTViewSE Clients

    I am having a very weird issue that Rockwell was not able to help with.  I have a new SE application that I converted from RSView32 and I re-wrote some VBA code associated with the project.  The code works fine on the server while the screen is running in studio.  Once I deploy a Client it no longer works.  It just sits there like its waiting for my trigger to go off, but I am seeing it sit there with a 1 so i know it should be executing the code because as soon as i open the screen in studio and press play the code executes and my data is there.  Does anyone have any ideas for me?   Thanks
  22. Hello, I am new to Scada Programming. I am using Citect scada V7.50. I have completed whole project, but I am unable to generate Excel report for Alarms generated during run time. Please help me for this issue. Thanks...
  23. Ok so I recently got the Factory i/o software to practice plc programming more in depth.  I got it working easily enough with the siemens TIA software and I am now trying to get it to work with the Omron Sysmac Studio software.  I am not sure if it is possible or not.  I have access to the hardware but I was really hoping to use the simulation like I can in TIA.  Any insight would be appreciated on the subject.
  24. Sysmac Studio 1.31.0.10 crash sometimes, often when copying things like color palettes, string in the Output Window, etc. It's always with NA not NX. I have a corrupted project because Sysmac Studio crash and save the project. NEVER use this file, restarts with the old file is better. The text fields does not appear on all objects on the HMI and it's never the same object each time your download to HMI! Check images below. Font is "No Value". Do you know how to resolve this problem?
  25. I am trying to display the time from an Accumulation timer. Using a data display object I am able to see the time in the following format 00:00:00.0000000. Is there a way to format the time without the decimal seconds I just want to see 00:00:00 (hours:minutes:seconds)
