  1. Scada/ Site management

    Hi,  I have basic experience with PLCs but have a degree in electrical engineering. I have landed a job which requires me to advance my plc knowledge. I am based within the UK and need some advice on how to go about a solution to a problem. The site I am doing this for needs a site managment system. The site is within food production, this would be monitoring of mostly trips and faults within a wide range of industrial equipment (Pumps, compressors, fridges). The site is mostly Mitsubishi and would like one centralised portal within the workshop to view all of the equipment availability. Thank you.
  2. The summary of the issue is when attempting to update any hardware file or technology package, the package will hang up in the “copy setup” status. This state will remain indefinitely – no further progress is made past this point. These are the steps that I have used to troubleshoot this thus far: I always run Automation Studio as an administrator I have redownloaded the program a couple of times, storing the downloaded ~8 GB package in C:/temp Temp files are cleared prior to launching Automation Studio I have tested different internet connections. With and without going through the company VPN. Launching the package via local and internet connection to isolate if it is a TCP port blocking issue. At this point I’m curious if there’s different registry key changes which allow for deleting files from temporary directories… but that’s just a theory. I've attached some screenshots.    What the function of the copy setup state? How can I progress past this state?    I'll keep banging on the keyboard to figure this one out but if there is a good Samaritan out there on the web it would be MUCH APPRECIATED!
  3. I am new to automation systems and devices and I just want to know how to connect two HMI's (each one would control different things) to one PLC using Sysmac Studio and NB-Designer via Ethernet. The model of the PLC is NX1029020 and the HMI's are one NB10W-TW01B and an NB7W-TW01B. I searched for info about this topic online but I couldn't find anything that worked for me, I saw an article from OMRON where they connect two NB's to the CP series, but in my case, NB designer doesn't allow me to insert more than one HMI in the same project, I also found something similar on a youtube video that gave me an idea about how to connect multiple HMIs exporting the pks file and importing it to another HMI project but I still can´t figure out how to add both to my PLC. I would thank you a lot if you could help me with this because I know it's not a rare implementation, just I haven´t found the right way to do it. I also leave the links to the Omron article and the youtube video I found. https://www.myomron.com/index.php?action=kb&article=1554 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXx5lut7G9I
  4. Hi, Could anyone help me out on how to extract the digits present in a string in sysmac studio... Thanks in advance !!!
  5. Hi, I have quite a noobie question. I want to create a function block to do some simple operations on 2 variables. Both variables are In/Outs (see picture attached). How can I make this function accept variables regardless of the data type? Given these is just simple math I am able to use the same instructions in REAL, INT, UINT, etc. But, the function block only lets me assign one Data Type to the In/Out variables.
  6. Good day everybody!    I am having issues troubleshooting a machine which is controlled by a VIPA PLC. I must admit that I am not very knowledgeable with this brand so I am a bit hesitant to touch anything. From the machine's supplier I got a .wld file which I could load into an SD card and load into the VIPA PLC itself through a Master Reset procedure. Still, our issue persists so I was wondering if I could somehow extract this .wld file into Speed7 Studio (or another program) to visualize it and try to troubleshoot the issue. Or in another case, if there was a way to directly read the currently loaded program from the PLC.    As I said, I had never worked with this brand before so I am being a little overly cautious with what I touch in this PLC.    Thanks for your help! 
  7. Citect Scada Modent Bit Read

    Hi team; I am struggling with a Citect SCADA read of some data. The system is using the "Modnet3" driver over TCP/IP to talk with a system (Modnet 3 as its TCP/IP with first register at 0 and 0 to 15 bits). I am reading the modbus data into variables which is working fine for the analogue values all defined as real in citect. The Issue I have is that the driver help says I can direct reference a bit in a word, in my case address 45052.1 Holding register 45052 and Bit 1. If I read this as a UINT I get a value of 147 corresponding to bits 1,2,5 and 8. Citect generates no errors for the tag setup where I define 45052.0 through 45052.15 but all remain as zero in tag lists.  Any help would be fantastic Kindest Regards Howard

  10. I encountered an issue that technical support was not exactly able to help me out with, and I wanted to share what I learned here for the next guy. Specifications: Omron NA5 HMI v1.10 connected to NJ PLC via Ethernet Issue: Made a change to a screen where I copied and pasted a button from a different screen.  The screen where the button was copied to had some sort of issue, but it was still able to compile and transfer to the HMI.  It worked for several days until the HMI was power cycled by maintenance, and it was stuck in a black loading screen saying "Initialising Variable System" with a scrolling wheel and green LED on the HMI panel.  It stayed in this loop indefinitely.  The HMI still had a ping, could be connected to from Sysmac Studio, and could be transferred to and from.  Troubleshooting section of the HMI mentions something about initializing failure with a red LED which required a system recovery, but no description for this state. Troubleshooting: Power cycled the HMI, but this resulted it getting stuck back in the same loop. Connected with Sysmac Studio with most recent backup and transferred from the HMI to get the current program.  Before transferring in this synchronize step, I could see a page that was on the target device that wasn't in the source.  I'm not exactly sure how it got there as it wasn't in my backup, but I had green in the comparison list when I shouldn't have.   Reverted program changes, downloaded to the HMI, and power cycled.  Still stuck in black screen with same message. After several other modifications, I eventually had a heavily stripped down program of the backup and downloaded to HMI.  Power cycled with same message. Resolution: In Sysmac Studio under HMI View, select HMI from ribbon, select Clear All Memory, confirm the target device, and select OK.  Once this has factory reset, I made sure the IP address was configured as necessary, connected, transferred backup, and all is well with the HMI now.  Even after loading a backup from several months ago, I could not clear this issue without a factory reset. Hope this helps!
  11. Dear Experts, I don’t have much knowledge and now working for a new project of cross-country Oil transportation pipeline SCADA. It’s a pipeline of more than 200 Km with 2 terminals (dispatch & receiving) and several valve stations through the pipeline will be connected with the central SCADA. The communication will be done by OFC placed along the pipeline. Apps of Leak detection system (LSD) have to supply and integrated with the SCADA system. Please suggest me which SCADA software should we use/suitable for the oil transportation pipeline? (ABB/Siemens/honeywell/else) Thanks.
  12. Hello! I got into a situation when one of engineers from our team experience an issue with team development repository. Everything was perfect up to some point and worked well as it should. Last night after last "pull" from the repository he got a fault message in his SysmacStudio (picture below). I have checked this repository: I created new blank copy of this repository on my workstation and the project started without any issues. Anybody experience this issue before? Seems to me that it's some weird issue with SysmacStudio. Both work stations have same SysmacStudio versions 1.47.0.64008.   
  13. I have 23 Micrologix 1400s and I want to take the same register, N100:99, out of each one and put in a single array in a CompactLogix L18ER. From what I have tried, it only seems like I can only map a range of integers, N100:77-N100:100, to the array and not an individual register to a particular element. (For example, mapping N100:99 from machine 16 to Selected_Model[15]) Can you map to individual elements in an array? If so, are there any instructions on how to do so? Thank you in advance for reading my post!
  14. Hello, I need to enter double confirmation on some buttons but I can't figure out how to configure it. Has anyone ever configured double confirmation on button? (citect scada) Thank you

  17. Hello Guys, I am using a nx102-9000 CPU and trying to communicate explicitly to a Telsonic Mag Generator. I have done this on a CJ2M & an Allen Bradley Processor successfully before but am struggling with sysmac. I will attach some screen shots of the AB message instruction because it is much more simple then the CJ2M (required pretty much a full function block made). If anyone wants to see the CJ2M block let me know. I am working right from the sysmac manual using the CIP OPEN, READ, SEND, & CLOSE. Once it is working I will write as well.  I am getting stuck right on the first part "CIP OPEN" I am using a route of '02\10.203.21.40' I am unsure what the 02\ means. I am just copying it from the example. The IP Is correct. Below is the picture of my 1C05 Error. Which in the manual is confusing because they have a 1C error and an 05 error separately.  Another question (once i can open a connection) is in the CIPRead the 'srcdat' I am not really sure what this is? Everything i've used before is an instance number, class, and attribute number (used in the CIPSend Logic From Allen Bradley MSG Instruction & Current Sysmac logic shown in pictures as well. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or need any additional information. Thanks, Kevin
  18. I have a global sidebar that has all of my page navigation buttons.  Is there a way to hide a certain button based on the current page that is displayed (i.e. "Manual" button is invisible when the Manual screen is displayed)?  I know how to make a button visible/invisible based on a tag or expression, but I don't know how to do it based on the current page.

  20. Hello everyone! I would like to connect a Micrologix 1100 with Citect 7.5 via ABMLXEIP (updated to latest version). I tried everything and it is still not working. The Citect and the PLC are on the same subnet and the ping works fine. All the configuration is done as the manual says (I attach the pictures). I have one NIC card and is connected to the PLC. The role is setted to “Server and Control Client”. The kernel has this error: [ERROR] [CORE] [0x07fc] [IOServer] [(GLOBAL)] [ErrorLog()][errlog.cpp] [266 ] Error: Channel offline, cannot talk CINIT 0015 PORT1_BOARD1 IODev_1100 Error_in_CMD-2 16 Generic 000021 Driver 00000020 (0x00000014) Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks, Gustavo.

  22. 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?
  23. Dear Colleagues,   I require some help with regards to setting up virtual machines, We have some ControlLogix 1756 PLCs scattered around site running on different version (v20, v21 & v32). My company requires all software installations on company computers to go through IT. Installing all these versions on single PC is really a pain (going through IT)  for new hires and for new PCs. I am trying to suggest using virtual machines for each version that can be shared/distributed among the engineers and also to give engineers some autonomy in the VM environment.    How do I go about this especially with respect to licensing without violating the terms of use both the operating system and the automation software? 
  24. Dear All. I have the issued with NX1P2 when read data from Modbus RTU. the Slave data using 2 INT for Real data. but in the Sysmac Studio I get the data is OK, 2 INT but can not convert to Real data. Can you pls help me to solve this issued. also I want to convert from Real to 2 INT to send the setting to salve. Many thanks.
