  1. A little background information here, I am trying to create a moving average so I accomplished it with the code (imaged attached) The problem i am having is the AVE instruction error bit goes true. it leaved me with a result of 1.#QAN  I did some googling and it said this is typically done when dividing by zero?? so i added a NEQ to 0 prior to loading the array. then it happened again. so i put the error bit in front of the FFL so it will stop loading the array when i get the error bit so i can see what values are in the array when it errors out. Has anyone else had this issue and what could you do to resolve it? I haven't had any luck find something that points me in the right direction. Thanks in advance for your help.
  2. Hello there, I am using a Kinetix 5700 drives to control bunch of axis. HW used : 5069-L320ERMS2 GurdsLogix, 2198-S086-ERS4 Servo Drive with MPM-B2152M-M motor and the 843ES-SIP12BA6 safety encoder. All is working fine except I can't figure out how to dynamically change an axis velocity  controlled by a MAG instruction. I have a virtual master axis controlling the velocity and each physical axis is controlled by a MAG instruction with a gear ratio. In my safety program I have SFX and SLS function block used to determine the safe speed limit. The  SLSLimit output of the SLS function block is linked to a SS1 Request of my servo drive. This causes the axis to stop when safe speed limit acceded.  What I'd like to be able to do is to dynamically change velocity (limit it to safe speed if SLS instruction is active) of each axis without having to change the gearing ratios and thus avoid the SS1 safe stop action.  I know how to do that using JOG or MOVE but is it even possible to do that using the MAG instruction? Regards Martin
  3. Hello, In my ladder program I have 7 different arrays (containing REAL values) all members of a structure and I wish to extract certain values from the arrays and put them on another structure consisting of REAL values (not arrays). Which is the best way to do that ? I tried AryMove command but I get an error "Conversion from REAL to ANY_ELEMENTARY[], ENUM[], STRUCT[] is impossible. To get a better understanding of my structures and arrays here is an example: Struct wheel_data Global variable SWheel of wheel_data rad[1...10] of real, vary[1...10] of real, varx[1...10] of real struct. 2 wheel Global variable Wheel1, .... , wheel10 of wheel rad REAL, vary REAL, varx REAL what I wish to do is to copy Swheel.rad[1]  to wheel1.rad,  Swheel.vary[1] to wheel1.vary, Swheel.varx[1] to wheel1.varx 2nd structure Swheel.rad[2]  to wheel2.rad,  Swheel.vary[2] to wheel2.vary, Swheel.varx[2] to wheel2.varx until I fill all 10 wheel structure instances with values Thanks in advance.
  4. Hi all, I've ran into an unusual situation where I could use some suggestions.  I have an AB PLC working in the field, and an existing fixture that needs to be transferred from an Omron PLC into our AB.  I have an integrator who did some offline development with a welder that uses Anybus communication.  He sent a .ACD file to implement the logic from.  The file has an Ethernet module configured but more importantly, it's showing EDS not registered.  I've asked for the EDS he used, and none of them work when trying to register it via right-click and register.  I can export the module, but it won't import into the current PLC program because there's no EDS (shows EDS error after the import).  If I try to take the program that was sent to me online with the PLC, it will automatically upload and overwrite the build.  I can't even open the properties of the module to see what the integrator did. The end goal is to have the offline developed module implemented into the current program, but it seems like everything I've tried to do has me against a wall.  Is there a way to go online without uploading?  Maybe there's a way to implement this I haven't learned yet?  Any suggestions would be much appreciated, and if more information is needed, I'll be glad to provide it.

  5. Hello guys, I am very new at this. I am trying to make a Schneider PLC (TM251MESE) to send some serial commands (485)  to a integrated stepper motor from Automation Direct (STR-MTRD-17030RE, but I am lost. The driver has been program to receive the SCL commands. But not quite sure how to send those from the plc. Im using SoMachine V 4.2 Have any of you done anything similar? Any example will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

  9. In CX-Programmer software, we have the ability to make a bunch of copies of the same rung with the "Address Incrememntial Copy" Function. Does Sysmac Studio have a similar function?
  10. A simple request for an Omron novice.  I know Timer values in Sysmac Studio are classified as TIME variables.  How can I modify the Preset of a TON block from my NA HMI since the TON Preset is of a TIME data type? Thanks,
  11. I wish to print from a Panelview Plus 7 1500 to a Konica Minolta 'bizhub' 4402P. The printer is not on the same network as the machine but is reachable through a router to the corporate network. I already have this working on one machine but don't know how we succeeded in setting it up. The setup that works is: Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard (it's actually a Konica Minolta 4402P). Model: Color LaserJet 3800. Port  10.xx.xx.xx (the WAN address of the printer). Driver: wt5hpspd.dll (v52.1070) We never had a Color LaserJet 3800 but we may have had a black and white HP laser printer that worked with this driver and now works with the Konica when our IT department replaced it. When using Add Printer the system tries to connect with the specified IP address and fails (even though we can ping it) and then the drive installation stops. Does anyone know a way to force the installation so I can try to replicate the working setup?  
  12. PWM

    Hi  In CX-programmer there is a PWM(891) function. Is there a similar same function block in sysmac studio ?  
  13. Analysing SCADA systems

    Hey guys, I'm currently working on a project to analyze available SCADA systems and make a systematic comparison of some of these selected options. In today's markets, there's a constant rise in demand for Industry 4.0 applications in the production process, connectivity, and data acquisition. What are some other important technical factors that need to be considered in order to compare these systems?
  14. Is there any instruction in Sysmac Studio Structure text to detect rising Edge (DIFU/DIFD) ?
  15. Task Priority 16

    I have made a fat bloated program that runs too slow. I tried working under the philosophy that "Premature Optimization" is the biggest time waste in developing programs. Now my program takes to long to run and throws a task error. I am attempt to cut the primary task's cycle time down I tried to move programs that use IO to other tasks. Task 16 is supposed to be able  to handle IO but it doesn't come up as a selection choice of priorities for me. I can do 17 but I get errors trying to use IO variables at that priority level. NX102-1200 controller, Sysmac Studio 1.30.1. Should I be able make a task at priority 16? I have some analog IO that I don't need to update every millisecond and I have some data and loop intensive FB's that only need to run once hour and I'd like to get them off my primary task's to-do list. I'll be busy re-writing my program FB's to accept specific variables instead of bloated structured variables and converting and changing Lreal's to real's and some other Premature Optimization tasks so I can run the sucker. 
  16. I am using Studio 5000 View Designer v4.3 to create an HMI on Panel View.  I'm having a weird issue where every time I open up my project, the windows are displaying only in the lower right hand corner.  This wasn't happening earlier.  Undocking the window, expanding the window, uninstalling and re-installing View Designer have not helped.  Trying to open View Designer as an administrator has not helped either.  I know there are better HMI platforms, but I am basically complete with the construction of this HMI using Studio 5000 View Designer and now it is too late.  I just want to add a few more buttons and I can't do it because I can't see the bottom of any of my windows.  Since Studio 5000 View Designer is based in Visual Studio, maybe someone would know how I can fix this via Windows registry files?  
  17. NJ Modbus

  18. Network Dropouts at Night!

    We have been having a re-occurring issue where some of our PLC's throughout our plant have a network outage that occurs around the same time every night. The PLC's are disbursed among the plant and it has been confirmed no large pieces of equipment are being turned on around this time every night... The network traffic does not fluctuate around this time and is not near a "troubling" level. There was a reboot to one of our servers on the same VLAN as the PLC's that are having the connectivity issues... What could have changed from a server reboot to remedy this issue, the server is not communicating to the PLC's, they are just on the same VLAN.

  21. hi dears, I have one CS1D omron Redundant controller ( CP65H) that must be connected to NS15 Touch panel. I want to use Ethernet for connecting HMI and CPUs (CS1D-ETN21D). I have one question. for NS15 we can use CX designer and sysmac studio? is it true? which one is better? what is your recommendation for HMI software? Thanks.
  22. How do I edit an array size ARRAY[0..13] OF REAL to ARRAY[0..15] OF REAL? Sysmac Studio doesn't allow it to be done online, as far as I can see. If I do it offline and then go online and Synchronise, Transfer to Controller I receive error Any ideas?
  23. Hello everyone, I have a problem with packing machine. There are some issues with one of the axis, when axis actual position is near to 1800000 some error appear and operator has to turn off machine on main contactor. This axis is working in Linear mode. I think that rotary mode would be better for this axis. And here is my question. Which instructions, and what options i should change/check when i change count mode in axis's options. Can any1 point me some manuals to read or give me some advice ? Thank you in advance.

  25. Wonderware DASMTEthernet Driver

    I have a client who is duplicating an existing Wonderware SCADA/MELSEC Q Series with a Wonderware 2014 R2 configuration, which they want to maintain that version.  The driver they use is the DASMTEthernet, which is no longer available from Wonderware.  I'm looking for any lead I can find to get hold of this driver, or a good solution to resolve the communications.
