  1. Hi! A have a question about how can I send the current User data from the Panelview (HMI) to the PLC. Its an allen bradley PLC 1756 L71. In the Factory Talk view I tried to make a register and to move in it the current user, but unfortunatelly its not working. Is anybody here who can help me with this ? Thanks ahead. Br.
  2. I want  increase the length of string from 82 to 150. By default it comes 82 is it possible to do so in Studio 5000
  3. Hello, I have a Q02CPU and QJ71E71-100 terminal and want to do a simple test of the Fernhill SCADA system. I have successfully connected the Fernhill software project to my PLC and gotten a word variable from the PLC be represented by a tag in the Fernhill SCADA system. However, I have issues doing the same for my bit variables. In Fernhill they should be internal relays but I get error 4031h in Fernhill: Melsec Error 4031h - The specified device number is outside the device range. I do not understand what is wrong. My PLC variables are each a global variable, internal relay in other words. In Fernhill I define each tag as an internal relay. The "device" from my simplified understanding is the identity of the variable in the PLC. It matches the PLC and Fernhill as shown in the pictures provided. Thanks in advance! PS. I don't get the error if I define the tags as Data Registers instead like I did for the analog variable. But 1) That is not what they are and 2) The tags don't change when the PLC variable is modified. Just a bit suspicious that it stops complaining when it is clearly incorrect...

  5. Proficy iFix 5.8 SCADAs crashing

    So, our plant has Proficy iFix 5.8 running on a handful of Windows 7 VM's, which, form my understanding, are running 24/7. However, since before a got here, they have had an issue where iFix will crash usually every couple of months, leading to screens and panels not looking right and freaking out everyone at the plant, and we reboot the VM. Apparently, we have always tried to reboot them every 3 months or so. Long story short, this is a difficult thing to organize at our plant. I would prefer to know why this is happening in the first place and try to fix that problem if possible. I was wondering if anyone else has experience this type of issue or may have any idea why this happens or if this is normal. I can barely find anything useful pertaining to iFix, online. I have attached a pic of what I see in Windows event viewer before rebooting the VMs. This is what mostly caught my attention: Faulting application name: CONMGR.EXE, version: 5.8.8255.0, time stamp: 0x5240ee18 Faulting module name: MSVCR100.dll, version: 10.0.40219.325, time stamp: 0x4df2be1e I haven't been able to find anything concerning Connection Manager either. Any information is appreciated.
  6. Good morning I have a problem with communication with a Yaskawa inverter, specifically GA500. The device communicates via the EtherCat network. Communication works, but when I want to change my PDO, I have a problem as shown in the screenshot in attachment. The problem occurs when I add the "Operation Command" variable. I have no idea what the problem is. I did not find a library on the Omron website that could support this inverter. thank you in advance for your help.

  9. MOVE data

    Hello,   Seeking for assistance on how to program the below conditions, If I wanted to see the history of the total numbers per hour, like it will be displayed in my HMI Events Screen. How will I do it? Attached image is the one I am trying to work on, but still not working. Do you have any other suggestions what to use in the program for me to be able to display the logs per hour? Thank you for any help you may give.
  10. Hi, I'm working on a projects where i need the button text to be dynamic.(assigned by a string variable) i have not been able to figure out how to accomplish this easily. I made a workaround with placing a label over the button and have the label refer to a string, but it would be soo much easier and smoother to just have the button text assigned a variable. I would think i could access the the text field through code ,like: Btn_1.Text=My_Btn_String_1, but have had no luck with this. Would Greatly appreciate any help. Thanks, Frank.  
  11. In the last update of Sysmac Studio (1.55) I would like to turn off the feature, see image. Can you help me?
  12. Hi All, I'm looking to setup communications between a digital force gauge and an Omron NX-CIF1010 RS232 serial communication interface.  Here is the Output Protocol from the Force Gauges Manual: Output Protocol RS-232 Parameter - Baudrate: 9600 - Data-Bit: 8 - Parity: none - Stop-bit: 1 The measured value is requested by the PC by the ASCII Sign “9”. I've tried to follow the youtube video, "How to communicate via RS 232 using an NX CIF to a PC" however setting up communication between the force gauge instead of a PC is proving difficult. How to communicate via RS 232 using an NX CIF to a PC - YouTube This is quite new to me so I'm trying to get my head around it at the moment so please correct me if I'm wrong. I'm reading values from the Force gauge in ASCII and I need to convert those values into another numerical value data type. I've seen in CX-Programmer, ASCII values being converted into Floating Point values using the "FVAL" instruction using Data registers however I can't use the same approach in Sysmac Studio. Do I need to clear the serial buffer everytime before I look to receive a numerical value from the force gauge? Here are details regarding the screenshots I've included below: 1) CIF101 Parameters to read Force Gauge Output Protcol in Sysmac Studio which should be matching the force gauges output protocol. 2) CIF101 IO Map in Sysmac Studio - ** I'm unsure if this is where I need to be linking the "RcvDat" input of the "NX_SerialRcv" function block? 3) CIF101 Sending Data Function Block - "NX_SerialBufClear" function block setup - "port_id" data type has been changed to "_sDevice_Port". 4) CIF101 Receiving Data Function Block - "NX_SerialRcv" function block setup 5) Global Variable - Array [0..3] OF BYTE - used in "RcvDat" input of "NX_SerialRcv" function block  6) Internal Variables Created  to send and receive data 7) Force Gauge RS232 Configuration 8) Force Gauge Output Protocol   Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  13. Hello everyone, I'm facing an issue while trying to go online with a PLC. The firmware revision of the controller is 34.011, but the offline project I have is showing a firmware revision of 33.xx. Due to this mismatch, I'm unable to establish a connection. I'm relatively new to this company and recently learned that the program on my computer may have been modified by a contractor company, which might explain the version difference. I suspect they may have used a higher version of RsLogix when making the changes. I'm looking for guidance on how to proceed in this situation. Is there a way to update the offline project's firmware revision to match the controller's firmware revision? Or is there another solution to resolve this compatibility issue? Any help or insights would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  14. Does anyone know how to delete the row labeled as, "63 - station number" and "Driver - Host Name". Our IPs range from .50 - .90, I would like to associate the station with an IP that correlates to one another.     For example, Station 50 =, Station 51 =, etc However, when I go to add a station 63. I get the error dialog that tells me 63 can not be added because it already exist. I have had this problem in the past, but never got around to wanting to figure out how to solve it.    ** Jumped the gun ** (modified)  You can rename 63 to whatever number you choose it to be....  
  15. I recently had surgery on my arm. I'm in a cast from finger tips to shoulder.  I have a major Logix 5000 program to write. Has anyone used Win10 Speech Recognition to operate Studio 5000? I tried today and it didn't work out well! Any suggestions?
  16. Omron plc to Citect Scada communication

    Hi Guys, I need some suggestion & solution regarding my recent project. The CQM1H plc which was used earlier is burnt and I am replacing it with CJ2M series Omron plc. Program transfer is possible from CQM1H to CJ2M. But the main issue is the system is controlled by Citect SCADA version 5.50 pack C. The communication of plc and Scada is through 2wire twisted pair cable. I just wanted to know when I replace the plc and convert the program do I have to change any settings or parameters in Scada? If I keep the same previous plc parameter in new plc and check the tags correctly in new plc as per old plc then the new system will communicate with Scada? I am new to citect scada so please provide your support and help.

    Hello all, is any one aware of any good free training, guides, etc, I am using the RT Visual Box and I like it a lot, but need a bit more in depth info and manual is ok, but it does not explain things in great details more like a general view.   Many thanks.
  18. Hello, has anyone had success in creating a wedge with borders that change due to its assigned tags? Attempting to create a range on a gauge using wedge, but am unsure how to approach this considering it wouldn't be rotating the wedge around a point but rather changing the size of the wedge. 
  19. Hi everyone! I am attempting to read EIP tags from an Allen-Bradley ControlLogix from an Omron NX1P2 using the Sysmac Studio function block "CIPUCMMRead." I have been successful in reading arrays and single variables no problem. However, when I want to read arrays from a structure in the Allen-Bradley PLC, I always get an error code in the CIPUCMMRead ErrorID of either 0400 or 1C00 for ErrorID and ErrorIDEx is FF00 2105 depending on what I enter in for Size on the function block (attaching screenshots with both error codes).   The errors show on multiple "read" function blocks at once but it only affects data coming out of the function block where I try to read in a BOOL array from a structure in the ControlLogix PLC. If I enter a UINT#1 for the Size, I get ErrorID 0400. If I enter UINT#2, 3, or 4, I get ErrorID 1C00 with ErrorIDEx being FF00 2105. I've been digging for a while and can't find that specific combo of codes, but it looks like it's a size issue. From what I can tell, the Size is in Bytes. So if I have 32 Bools it should be a Size of UINT#4 max, right? Any help would be greatly appreciated! The function block having issues is setup the exact same as the other two that read from the same structure; I even copied and pasted them from each other and just changed the FB name and the postfix in the SrcDat string (from MyBools to MyDints/MyReals). Here are the screenshot: 1. Allen-Bradley Structure 2. CIPUCMMRead Function Block with size 4 3. CIPUCMMRead Function Block with size 1
  20. Hello,   I'm seeking some guidance and assistance regarding an issue I've encountered while configuring a Proline Promag W 400 flow meter module in Logix Designer. I'm experiencing the following error:   Error Code: 16#0009 Fault Additional Code: 16#0000 Fault Description: Module Configuration Rejected: Parameter Error   I've carefully reviewed the module documentation, verified the wiring connections, and ensured compatibility between the flow meter module (Serial Number: T711F49000) and Studio 5000 Logix Designer (Version 33.00.00 Full Edition). However, I'm still facing this parameter error during the configuration process.   I've also attempted to access the web service provided by the flow meter module to view its configuration and parameter settings, but I haven't been able to identify the specific cause of the error.   I would greatly appreciate any insights or suggestions from the forum members who might have encountered a similar issue or have expertise with the Proline Promag W 400 flow meter module and Logix Designer. Specifically, I'm interested in any troubleshooting steps or guidance that could help resolve the parameter error and successfully configure the module.
  21. Hi everyone,  I recently started in the automation industry and am currently working on an Omron project.    So I have two programs, one on Sysmac Studio (which has the HMI) and the other on CX-Programmer. I am trying to simulate both simultaneously using the Sysmac Studio HMI. Is there any way I can do that where for example I can toggle stuff on and off from the Sysmac HMI and get feedback from the CX-Programmer ladder?    Thank you in advance. 
  22. Hi there! This is my first time using Rockwell automation software and I have some questions I can't answer. When I'm running the FactoryTalk runtime application with a simulated controller, I get disconnected from Logix Designer, so I can't online watch the program. If I try to simulate using 'Test Application' in FactoryTalk View Studio, it appears to communicate, but buttons don't make any effect when pressed.   Hope you can throw some light on it! Thanks in advance!  
  23. I have 2 vm’s, 1 with FactoryTalk and 1 with Studio 5000 and Studio 5000 emulate and I need the Factorytalk to communicate with the emulated plc on another vm and wondered if this is possible.
  24. Hello, I am working on a project currently that uses a windows application on a PC to communicate with an NX1P2 controller to read and write variables data. I found a course on Udemy which has a Visual Studio project with OMRON DLLs that are used for these communications. I confirmed with OMRON that they do have official DLLs for this, but the technical support guy has told me he is trying to find them himself.   I have attached a screenshot of the DLL references.  I am really looking for the DLL libraries, aswell as the documentation on their functionality to I can use them to communicate. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
