  3. Hello there,   I am using Schneider HMI for the past few years, it's very versatile and easy to design graphics.   Now i started using OMRON HMIs and found that is weird to draw graphics in Omron NB-Designer.   I have Example, Look at the attached screenshot of both software, in the case of Schneider if I stretch a button or any object it will remain in the same good shape. but in the case of Omron, if you stretch any object it doesn't remain in the original shape. (check the attached images.)   Please suggest Ideas about designing a good Omron Hmi, Sample backup is always welcome. The image link is below, I am not able to upload it here.  
  4. Hi guys, I am trying to open an application and i keep getting this error. Failed to initialize the service: {3F883B87-2208-11D4-B0E7-001083022E04} Does anyone know how to get rid of this error? Regards,
  5. Data Types for MAM instruction

    I have inherited a program to work on using MAM motion commands on a CompactLogix 5370 processor. The MAM variables for some parameters state that REAL data type is required. However in looking at the the code those REAL variables are actually declared as DINT. Is this OK. Does Logix somehow accept DINT for these parameters even though REAL is specified. So if parameter is 5600 DINT it somehow interprets this as 5600.00 REAL. Confused!
  6. 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.?    
  7. Hi. I have a decent workstation I work on when i do my programming. I have been using Sysmac studio for couple of years now and I have always notice it that sysmac studio is very slow.   Have you guys notice that sysmac in general is slow ? /Best regards.
  8. Here is my setup - Factorytalk view SE V 7.0 with Primary and secondary servers. System gets replicated from primary to secondary once in a week. After the primary server was restarted due to some issue, all the HMI tags lost their values. 'Retentive' checkbox was checked on all HMI tags, initial value field is blank. According to the description of 'Retentive' field in the help file, the HMI tag should hold its value even after the server is restarted if the box is checked. Also, secondary server should have held those same values while primary was rebooting, but as of now all my HMI tags field are blanks. Am I looking at a patch roll up here?
  9. AB Studio 5000 Lite

    I put together a system a couple of years ago with a L306ERM with I-O, PanelView, etc and I was sold Studio 5000 Lite to program it. It worked out ok on that project but now I have a project that I need to use a Powerflex 525 VFD and the software won't let me add the Powerflex. I've tried several different PFs and none can be added. It crashes at the Create button and puts out the wonderfully descriptive message of "Unknown Error" Email AB support. As of 4-1-21, AB doesn't take emails for Powerflex drives. Anyone know if the Lite version of Studio 5000 will work with a Powerflex 525?Thanks you for looking.
  10. Hello All, I am new to Studio 5000. I am trying to have my limit sensors energize my stop output, and also have a manual bit that I can toggle that will energize the stop output as well. Currently, toggling my manual bit works for energizing the stop output, but my limit sensors turning on does not energize my stop output. Not getting what I want with or without the ONS. What is going on??? Thanks, Daniel
  11. 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 :)?
  12. Hello! I have a plc program where I need to start and finish an MAM instruction based on a set amount of time. I am trying to calculate the speed of the motor based on the time but when I do, its always off by some milliseconds which I cannot have. I thought this was due to not considering acceleration time but changing acceleration does not change how long it takes the instruction to complete. Is there a more reliable way to perform this? Currently I have my speed units set to seconds which I thought would work (and did improve it slightly) but there is still a slight offset in time. If there is no reliable way to do this, is there a reliable way to predict what the offset in time may be? or what is even causing the offset? thank you in advance. Edit: Or should using seconds work fine, and its more likely something else in my program?
  13. 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...
  14. Do you have a known ac repair expert in contacts who can help me fix the issue i am having with my air conditioning unit?
  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. Hello everyone, I want to indentifying harware of a B&R Automation PC online to diagnose and set an encoder for the B&R ACOPOS servo drive but when I upload or identifying the hardware ,Automation Studio can not find the machine servo drives..If anyone has a similar experiense,I appreciate your help in this of this mismatch are attached. Thanks in advance
  17. 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 ), 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     
  18. 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.

    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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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?
  24. 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?
  25. Is there anyone who can provide me driver for Yokogawa Energy Meter WT230 which can be installed in Kingview 6.53 SCADA.
