  1. Hi All, Has anyone had the experience of connecting two Fernhill Scada units using an OPC UA?  I am intending to use Fernhill Scada on my Master PLC to read tags from my Slave PLC's Fernhill Scada. Then, displaying local tags (Master PLC, "Fernhill SCADA Unit 1") and read/scanned tags from the Slave PLC, "Fernhill SCADA Unit 2". In the meantime, I am trying to use both of my Fernhill SCADA units interact with each other (one unit to read tags from the other unit) by using Internal Digital Tag on the Fernhill SCADAs.  Any help would be appreciated.

  4. Hello! I am working on a quote for a new project that will use EtherCAT but also requires DeviceNet for some legacy components.  Has anyone successfully used the Beckhoff EtherCAT coupler (EK1100) with the DeviceNet Master Terminal (EL6752) and an Omron PLC as the EtherCAT master? My concern is that the coupler will only communicate with the Beckhoff EtherCAT master, but since it is so much more expensive to get the new Omron parts to communicate DeviceNET i am hoping this could be an option.  The equipment is extremely simple and price is a major consideration.   Thank you!!!
  5. Hi, I have a problem with Omron PLC and Beckhoff IO. The IO just disconnects in a few minutes and comes back! I received different errors: Link off error, Illegal slave disconnection, process data reception timeout. When I also check "Display Diagnosis/Statistics information" I see errors on all ports A and B of all nodes.  I have called and talked to both Beckhoff and Omron.  I have two NX1 and one NJ101 to test. And I have three EP2318-0001. I have the same problem with all the PLCs and EP boxes. It does not matter if I have one, two, or three nodes. I have tried different revisions of the EP2xxx from the XML file, different settings for the slave, different task periods, and the error still is persisting.

  8. KINCO PLC as MODBUS RTU slave

    Hello to everyone. I hope you are doing well. I'm trying to establish a communication between my PC and my KINCO PLC. The manual states it supports MODBUS RTU protocol, so I downloaded two different Modbus Master simulator I found out: Multiway from OMRON and qModMaster. None of them seem to work properly. I attached some pictures of the messages I get. https://ibb.co/f1mCSNt Multiway message https://ibb.co/bP5cX1t qModMaster message I include the configuration of the communication parameters. https://ibb.co/nMty8D9 PLC parameters https://ibb.co/6RTqVfC Multiway parameters https://ibb.co/N1XTccd qModMaster parameters According to the manual, in order to play the role of Modbus master with the PLC it's necessary to configure some instruction blocks (I'm programming in ladder). However, I could not find any block to configure as Modbus slave. I don't know what else I can do. I'm in trouble with this task. Am I making some mistake? Thanks for your attention.  Kind regards!

  10. WonderWare Help

    Hi all, looking for some help. Have been using WonderWare since version 7.1. We currently use WonderWare 2020, but some of our products still require 2014 R2. Here lately, I have had trouble installing WonderWare 2014 R2 on Windows 10, specifically the SQL 2014 install. I have attached an image of the error message. I have tried multiple different methods to resolve the issue including pre-installing different versions of SQL Server. Thanks all!
  11. Hello fellas. I am having trouble with understanding the communication between my AB PLC and my Balluff BNI0085, which is connected through an IFM AL1120 IO-link deivce. I am currently running a setup with an AB PLC (L18ER) that is connected to a local network through a network switch. I have connected my IFM AL1120 to this switch, and the IP configuration for both devices have been completed. The communications are made by using two add-on instructions, supplied by Rockwell: The BMC_AOI_PROC_BNI0085 instruction (For the Balluff smartlight), and the Generic_4PORT_IOL (For the IFM IO-link). I have additionally been supplied an ACD-file by my ex-coworker, containing a program that administrates the communication between the two add-on instructions. I have attached the routine from this as a PDF. What works: I can go online with my PLC, and by using the parameter "BNI0085_Mapped_Data.O" I can control the smartlight. I can change the settings for light-mode (Segment, Level, Runlight, Flexible), and the different parameters for each mode. What's the problem: When I change the Mapped_data.O to run in level-mode, I can adjust the light to show the level desired. When I try to adjust the level above halfway, the light switches off, and can't seem to be steady lit (Light turns on/off, random dimming). I speculate this might be due to the small power supply for the IO-link device, and the setting for brightness is not included in the AOI for the smartlight.  I therefore tried to adjust the brightness by connecting through the LR-device software from IFM(The same used to configure the IO-link). I added the IODD (IO-link device description, "Balluff-BNI_IOL-802-102-Z037-20190215-IODD1.1.xml") for the smartlight, and connected the device, which is discovered in the device list once the IO-link IP has been entered. I can read the values from both the IO-link and the BNI0085 devices, and I can write parameter settings to the IO-link device. Whenever I try to edit any parameter for the smartlight, I get the error attached. I am currently trying to follow the SmartLight userguide for the Balluff, as it describes the brightness setting as being in the ISDU index 51hex, but I don't know how this pertains to the AOI.   I am in over my head with this issue, and I don't know what information is needed or what is unnecessary. I've tried to include all that I think is relevant, I'll gladly provide what might be missing.  Any help is greatly appreciated, cheers :)   Balluff_smartlight_com_MainRoutine.pdf
  12. Factory talk HMI server

    I am using Factory talk view to practice but there is not any physical HMI ,I have been come up with errors.  So,I am not sure to create new HMI server ,it requires physical HMI?? THANKS
  13. Hi all:   Hope somebody will help me with the below error encounter on the NA. I mapped a external device (NJ PLC) variable (which is a structure) to a NA Global variable and the structure is automatically created in the NA data type as expected. I then create a new NA global variable and defined its data type as the auto created structure. However i observe the created new NA global variable is highlighted with an error "a data type cannot be used by both mapped and unmapped variable ....." ( pls refer to the attached screen).  I have found and view on the Youtube this video :"Introduction To The NA DataTypes" (link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZxWnVn1CSY). that clearly show the "imported" structure can be used for unmapped NA global variable even there is some variable already mapped to external device variable (starting from the 3:50minutes mark of the video). In my NA program i would need to create such unmapped variable for my logic use. Also i observe that i was unable to delete the auto created structure from the NA Data Types even after i deleted all variables that are defined with that specific structure. How can i delete such auto created structure in case i want to clear off some of those unused data types. I am using Sysmac Studio version 1.30.0.17. The HMI Device created is the NA5-9W00 (version 1.11)          
  14. Here is a step by step tutorial... Utilizing the CX Server DDE Manager will allow us to provide a link to the information in the Omron PLC. This link can be placed on an Excel spreadsheet. Charts, graphs, etc. can be made from the data. We will create links on an excel spread sheet from a CQM1H and a CP1L PLC. The information will then be displayed as a bar graph comparing the first ten memory areas. Here is a step by step tutorial... Watch on YouTube : Implementing the Omron CX Server DDE and Excel Let me know what you think. Regards, Garry

  17. Hello guys, I have an application with a Delta PLC (slave), Load cell module and Delta HMI.  The problem is that the Delta PLC has to report to the already existing platform of Siemens S7 PLC (Master) with Profibus. The Master (Siemens) writes and reads data from the Delta PLC. The question is, how can I set up the Profibus communication? Are there any documentations about the Memory Mapping, configuration etc. There are some modules for Profibus Slave from Delta but I cannot find any references or anything. Thanks in advance.
  18. Hello I have a M251, running a webvisu. I have created a program to create a test report to a *csv file and store it on sd card. What I want to do next is to allow the user to download the * csv from the webvisu and not via ftp client like Filezilla. On codesys forums I see there are file up and download options for buttons (click behaviour) but they are not available in Somachine 4.3. One option I am considering is using the TCP server and steam the file manually from a button click. I dont want a ftp client as now the customer will then needsoftware on his pc, this plc is a portable test system and will be controlled by many different pc's. Is anyone aware of a simpler way to do this?
  19. We have a customer insisting on communicating with our NX102-9000 over EtherCAT, we have explained multiple times that EtherCAT is not intended as a facility communication protocol and recommended that instead they use Ethernet/IP, but after a year of pushing back they are still insisting and willing to pay for the Engineering work to get this to happen. Has anyone successfully configured two EtherCAT masters to communicate with each other? In the past I have used the PN-PN Master Coupler from Siemens to get two ProfiNet Masters to communicate with each other so I am hopeful that a similar device exists for EtherCAT, but I have not had any luck searching the web for such a device. Does anyone have experience with or know of such a device? Thank you!!
  20. Hi all. This is hopefully an easy fix. I have words and bit values in a recipe that I am trying to show in a logging file. I can get numerical values to show but I can't get the word devices from the recipe to show up on the logging file. Eg my devices from recipe set as a string starting with device gd60120 and in the logging file I want gd60120 to show the word, they are both set as unicode.  
  21. Ran into this unique little "bug" today. Tag Variable is INT , Tag Output is REAL  Using CPT Instruction  (Variable / 2000) * 700 results in an output of Zero (0.0). Using CPT Instruction (700.0/2000.0)*Variable results in a non-zero Real Number (350.0 for example if Variable = 1000) Turns out reading the help, that CPT does math in the type of the first variable encountered and then converts to the destination type. Thus 1000/2000 in Integer Math = 0 and 0 times 700 equals 0 which converts to 0.0 Sharing just cause I'd never hit this "bug" before.

  23. HI All,  I have an issue with my SCU32 communication.  Back ground Two SCU32s  (top and bottom side) connected via a 1100M datacable  using port1 ( 9600bps,  8-2-E, start code FF, end code FE, Tx save to d1000-d1200 , Rx save to d2000-d2200). PORT2 of bottom SCU32 is connected to a compass( 2 wire, 8-1-N, 19200 bps, serial gateway MODBUS ). Refer to photo Issue  Without compass, the receiving data at top is very stable and is didn't see any fluctuation. But if is compass is connected at bottom side port2, there is a fluctuation at the top side RX data(specifically d2000-d2005 ) .  I checked the data a bottom side TX (d1000-d1200) and it is stable. Only after sending the data and Receiving at Top side, then only the starting words fluctuate. I am not sure sure what is wrong, I am using logical ports for the DTXDU/DRXDU and compass.   Appreciate all your feedback and suggestions.  
  24. RSLinx and PLC 1747-l553

      Good afternoon, dear specialists. Recently, only without preparation, I began to set up communication between the scada and the PLC. The problem is that RSLINX LITE (v3.90.01 CPR 9 SR9) sees both PLCs on the network, but one of them gives a problem with reading data, or rather, the data monitor does not load at all (or shows a red cross (which means there is no physical connection to the PLC)). But it responds perfectly = 1ms. Nearby is an old PC with an old RSLINX LITE (v2.41.00) that perfectly reads data from both PLCs. What is the problem? why doesn't the more recent program read the data? There is an even older PC on Windows XP on the Intouch scad, via OPC the "SMC" application also reads data without problems New PC:                                               Old PC:                                                still the third ancient PC: Windows 10                                         Windows 7                                            Windows XP RSLINX LITE v3.90                             RSLINX LITE v 2.41                             SMC (intouch) Status Not working                              Status Working                                      Status Workinп It was also connected via the "Ethernet" and "Ethernet / IP" drivers. I directly connected a new PC to the PLC and set up only one connection, still the result is negative. I would be grateful for any help! If I apologize for my English, I did it through a translator.    
  25. Hi experts :D Can anyone help/try to help  with the following conundrums: a) when changing the Ethernet Operation settings from Binary code to ASCII code, the setting are 'saved' in PLC settings, meaning that ASCII code is read as selected after a restart, but the PLC accepts commands and responds in Binary code. b) when adding a new TCP port, the new port is 'saved' in PLC settings, meaning that read as selected after a restart, but the PLC refuses commands on that port (the "Open" LED on the Q71E71-100 card turns on for the duration of the transmission but no reply is received from the PLC) notes: setting software: GX Works 2 target test software: Custom made Driver for MC protocol. (tested and working with FX and Q series  and with ASCII and Binary code) PLC model Q02 (reset performed by removing the battery for more that 2 hours) ports used for test are: 5500 and 4999 (decimal) found 5002 port opened by default (no open setting required) PLC network module Q71E71-100 (new)   I would upload screenshots of the settings but I get this error: "There was a problem processing the uploaded file. Please contact us for assistance."
