  1. I currently have certain amount of Recipe data located in form of Excel file on to a PC with static IP address. Is there a way to get that data inside the Nj501 without using an SQL server as I currently have NJ501-1300 which doesn't support SQL. I am okay to send data to the SD card I currently have on NJ PLC as it is easy to get data from SD card to the NJ501.  If there is any example code or a link that helps me create i would be helpful. Thanks in advance. FYI: I am currently using NB10 HMI with NJ PLC.
  2. does anyone know about usb driver cx programmer for windows 10 64 bit? I can not upload / download programs without this usb driver. Please tell me if anyone has or there is a link for this, Thank You.
  3. Any new tags I add in studio 5000 the HMI project shortcut cannot locate the tags, it says unresolved route to processor. It's the same shortcut all of the other tags are using. Please help. 
  4. This is my first time to the forum and I am still very new to plc programming. I just had to move all of our software over to a new computer ( kind of new) it's running windows 7 pro. The same is as the computer before. Same computer name, same I'm, same file directory. However when I add tags in studio 5000 and reference them in the HMI, it says it is unresolved in route to the processor. It only does this for the new tags. I used the same shortcut and everything so I am at a complete loss here. What do I do.
  5. Struct as FB input

    Hello,  I am trying to define a struct as an input variable for a Function or Function Block. For example the function AddDelimiter (This is a standard Sysmac function), has a input variable with the variable type Struct, an it is possible to couple a struct to this input (See picture below). If i try to make my own function block with a struct or Structure as an input data type, i get the following error (See picture below). When I try to define a struct from the data types (In this case struct: Test) it doesn't give a error. But when I try to couple a struct to this input, that is a layer deeper than the function block struct i get the following error (See picture below). How can i define a struct as an function/ function block input? Thanks in advance.
  6.   Hi everybody, this is me psoting for the first time here.  Currently I am taking a distributed control systems course, and one of our current tasks is the following: "Develop a control system with the task to control an induction (asnychronous) motor. You may use HMI SCU 8B5 (Schneider electric PLC) and Altivar71( Schneider VFD). The communication protocol to be used is CanOpen. The process should be visualized on the HMI of the PLC. Using the IGSS scada system, you should be able to control and observe the system on a PC." I have written the SoMachine program that I will upload to the PLC(basically Schneider provided the code for the exact same hardware: Then I moved on to set up the IGSS scada program, following the pdf manual listed on their site, page 18 and on: . I tried to follow through all the steps, however I do have a few questions. First, in step 8., which driver should I use for my hardware? I selected the Modicon driver, as that was one of the few Schneider drivers available(see attached image). My second question is with regards to connecting the variables that the PLC sends to the PC and actual objects in the graphical environment, such as on page 32. How do I do it? If anyone has more materials on this topic, it would be greatly appreciated. I can't get any help from my tutor(he refuses, and says we do our own research). If you know somebody who could perhaps help me out on this one, please feel free to share with them this question.     
  7. OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit running on VMware virtual machine. Installed software: Studio 5000 V21.0 Licence: Concurrent (served by licence server on another PC). On starting Setup.exe from the VM's desktop I get the message     "Studio 5000 does not support this version of windows" Any ideas how to proceed?
  8. Hello,   I want to do a small scada for Allen bradley plc  on C#. I did a hmi/scada for Siemens S7-1500 plc on C#, it is working and free. I dont want to use Advanced  Hmi. it is looking free but I can not use it in industries as free. so I decided to use direct C#. Do anybody has sample program, code, document, library, link, etc.. about C# and Rockwell plc communication? second solution and question, if anybody has no solution; I may solve it with modbus TCP. but I dont know Compact logix L27ERM CPU support direct modbus tcp protocol. if anybody has knowledge about the modbus tcp protocol document, sample program etc.. I can try to communicate with modbus tcp C# and Allen Bradley.   Thank you in advance. 
  9. Is there any way to establish a variable as min/max value of a gauge on sysmac studio?
  10. I am using an Omron NJ controller and a Cognex Dataman 260 bar-code scanner.   At this point I can trigger the scanner and receive data from the scanner via ethernet/ip. My issue is in converting the response from the scanner to something human readable. The bar-code I scanned reads "872-3GSq".  The results of the scan are located in the variable Dataman_to_NJ[8]-[11]. At some point I know I need to use the SWAP function but I believe my lack of data type knowledge in this system is hindering me. How can I convert the value in Dataman_to_NJ[8] to the string "87"? Any assistance would be appreciated.  
  11. Hi, I've been working with RSLogix 500, today i found that i was unable to connect to Micrologix PLC because in the RSLinx the Driver Ethernet IP that was configured to communicate whit PLC appears with a Red Cross. Yesterday everything was working. I've installed an antivirus software, i supposed the reason was the antivirus, but i've tried on configs and even uninstalling it, and RSLinx seems that can't reconigze the ethernet adapter (guess that means red cross) RSLinx 3.51 CPR 9 SR 5.1 RSLogix 500 Pro 9.0 Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bits Could you, provide to me some guidelines to solve this, or if somebody has had this problem, could share the solution? thanks in advance
  12. Elipse SCADA

    Hi, I'm adding some automatic slide adjusts to some progressive presses that use Elipse SCADA as their HMI software. I've never used it before and was wondering if anyone knew where I could learn the basics. All Google searches have yielded non-English tutorials and manuals and one unhelpful English manual. All I really need to know is how to establish communication and upload/download but any information provided would be greatly appreciate. The more thorough, the better.    Thanks! 

    Hi recently I have seen Omron Europe and I have download an app for Android and iOS, that app can allow you to remote view HMI types NB,NS and NA9last from Omron). The reason of all of this, is if some body have try this app and also if communication and remote view was creat it. I have try all my best but still can't make it, if some body did it, could you please share it?. Thanks, Jose
  14. Save on development time by having a copy of your target system on your bench.  Develop the target code in a local environment (coffee handy of course)  then deploy with high confidence.  Systems built to order.  
  15. Hello, Does anyone have experience with getting online a NJ/NX via USB with Sysmac Studio running on windows 10? At Omrons website it says Sysmac Studio offers windows 10 support from version 1.15 but I can't find drivers anywhere. Have checked in the communication middleware folder as you can see in the attached picture. I have Sysmac Studio running on Windows 10 Professional. Its not a big problem for me right now, because I can always connect via Ethernet, but if the driver exist I would appreciate having it.  
  16. Elipse scada

    Anyone know how to crack development password in Elipse SCADA.
  17. Hey, this is probably a stupid question, but how do I delete old FactoryTalk View Programs. They are the ones that I have uploaded from a PanelView Plus via the "Transfer Utility" and then restored runtime using the "Application Manager". I open up FactoryTalk View Studio and I can see a list of all the runtime applications or I can create a new one. My question is, where are these applications stored by default? I have a bunch of old ones and test programs that I want to delete that are just cluttering up my list. I attached a screenshot to show you exactly what I'm talking about. Thanks, I'm sure this is a pretty easy/ dumb question. Howard
  18. Hello, this is a noob question on how to code properly. Im trying to do something like this on a code editor inside HMI (NA5) Page:   For i = 1 to 100 Me.Button_"i"_Line_ON.Enabled = True Next i The code is more complex than this, thats why I cannot use the Animation tab feature on the interface to set Enable The number of buttons are 100, so I dont want to go 1 by 1. My poor knowlegde on Visual.Net and searching engines does not allow me to find a solution for this in a short lapse of time. Anyway to do this? Thx in advance.
  19. Hi,  I am writing some routines to decode the data from my Input: data array to User-defined Array Parameters. Is that possible to have a generic routine to decode data coming from more than one module? I have two Module ENode and ENode_1. I have defined User-Defined parameters for the module. Can I make a generic routine to decode the data coming from these two modules and put them in the defined arrays?  the two arrays ENodeData[0] and ENodeData[1] have the Generic User-Defined parameters.
  20. Enumerations in Recipes

    Hello,   Is there a way to limit the input of an ingredient value, possibly by use of an Enum?  For example, I have an ingredient called Press_Speed. I want the values to be either Normal, Slow_1x, Slow_2x, or Slow_3x. On the PLC these values are interpreted as numbers. Can I limit the input to the String representation of the Enum?   I'm using the NA series HMI with Sysmac Studio. 
  21. We recently obtained a new Vendor ID (VID) Number from ODVA, 1477 for the purposes of developing an EtherNet/IP scanner device.  When we try to use that number with the Allen-Bradley PLC & Studio 5000 Logix Designer, our data type REAL's are showing up in Studio 5000 as SINT's.  We have seen this mangling of data types before when using the Omron VID, 47 with the same Allen-Bradley PLC/EIP Scanner.  The data types are being misinterpreted, or mangled from REAL to SINT, e.g. the *.eds file defines 32 REALs for Input and 32 REALs for Output, but within Studio 5000 we see 128 SINTs each for Input and Output. It is as though the Allen-Bradley/Studio 5000 database does not have our Vendor ID.  When I change the *.eds file, Vendor ID Number from #1477 to #1 then we see the *.eds file being properly read and interpreted, e.g. 32 REALs for Input and Output show up as 32 REALs each.  Does anyone know what file we need to modify in Studio 5000 ???  We want to add our Vendor ID #1477 to that file. Hardware: EIP Scanner: Allen-Bradley Compact Logix L18ERM EIP Adapter: Delta Tau Power PMAC Motion Controller (EIP OpeNer Stack) Thanks in advance! See screenshots below. within Studio 5000, see screenshots
  22. Popular HMI/SCADA Software Suites?

          Hi all. I'm new here. Quick background on myself: I was a 6-and-out Navy Nuke Electrician on a Sub. I finished my service in Jan 2015 and immediately went to work as a shift electrician at a steel mill. I always say I was a good nuclear operator, but a poor electrician. However, I think I have learned rather quickly and really enjoy PLC's and HMI development. At my company, we have a lot of liberty to modify code, create new projects, etc.      I primarily work with S7-300/S7-400 and GE UC's at work; and I have a Micrologix emulator and programming software I practice on. All of our HMI development is done in InTouch and I feel proficient with WW, having done some projects with Modbus/DASSIDirect on my own.     As this is the first industrial automation job I have ever had, I only know about the software and hardware I have been exposed to at work. My question is what are other popular HMI software suites that major employers use (and customers prefer), because I'd really like to become very good at the programming/control side of my job.     Thank you all very much. Adam
  23. The OPC Server for Siemens Controllers

    Good day to all forum members. I think many engineers are faced with the need to connect Siemens controllers to various SCADA systems. In most cases, the OPC technology is used to make such a connection. We want to offer participants to try our product, the OPC server for the Profinet protocol applied in Siemens controllers. Our OPC server supports the following standards: OPC DA 2.05, OPC HDA 1.2 and OPC UA (transfer of archives is supported too). Controllers of the following series are supported: S7-200, S7-300, S7-400, S7-1200 and S7-1500. The OPC server provides the interactive import of tags from the Tia Portal environment, and this simplifies configuring the server. The OPC server contains the built-in client for monitoring values, and this simplifies communication debug. There are the following modifications of the OPC server: - Demo version (full-featured, 1 hour continuous operation in the runtime mode) - Free version (32 tags at the most) You can download the trial version here: In addition to the OPC server for the Profinet protocol, we also support such protocols as Modbus, Omron FINS, Bacnet, IEC 60870-5-104, IEC61850 and SNMP.   We would love to hear feedback and feature requests to our products.

  25. The OPC Server for Omron Controllers

    Good day to all forum members. As you know, Omron controllers support FINS, the protocol of its own development. Despite the protocol is high-functional and well thought-out, few of SCADA systems support the protocol at the driver level, and therefore the main manner of connection of such controllers to SCADA systems is an OPC server. We want to offer participants to try our OPC server for the FINS protocol. Our OPC server supports the following standards: OPC DA 2.05, OPC HDA 1.2 and OPC UA (transfer of archives is supported too). The protocols FINS Ethernet and FINS Serial are supported, and this allows you to connect various modifications of Omron controllers, both with and without Ethernet cards. The OPC server contains the convenient utility of import from a file formed by CX-Programmer, and this simplifies configuring the server. There are the following modifications of the OPC server: - Demo version (full-featured, 1 hour continuous operation in the runtime mode) - Free version (32 tags at the most) You can download the trial version here: In addition to the OPC server for the FINS protocol, we also support such protocols as Modbus, Profinet, Bacnet, IEC 60870-5-104, IEC61850 and SNMP.   We would love to hear feedback and feature requests to our products.
