  3. Hi, We have a discussion in our office concerning the correct way of wiring an external current signal 4-20mA to a 1756-IF16 module. (We do many different PLC brands and configurations, so my/our experience with Alan Bradley is of several years ago) We have several external current signals connected to these units. (And these systems are all situated on a ship.) Some are galvanic separated and others are not and have their 'own' power supply only a few are sensors that are loop powered by the Main PLC cabinet.   The issue: According to one colleague it is required to connect the RTN jumper wires to the negative of the main PLC cabinet to solve signal issues due to floating voltage. Although it will work, I am not sure if this is really necessary, and I don't like connecting the negative to other cabinets which have their own power supply... Alan Bradley does not indicate that this is required, only jumper wires to convert the circuit from voltage measurement to current. It is also disappointing that none of the (non-differential) examples of Alan Bradley show how to connect an external current signal (which would indicate if the extra negative to be needed)   Adding galvanic separators and connecting the RTN to the negative is in my opinion not so much a solution but an evasion of the question/issue.   Any knowledge out there? Thnx
  4. Serial question

    I have a cell phone modem connected to my Omron CP1L on serial 2   Here is the issue  I need to pull the phone number out of the msg received (receiving text messages)  I receive a text msg and a lot of other crap like time and date ect. RDX says store in D100 the problem is that after I receive the SMS I see the phone number and copy the number to D200 to D2xx The next text comes in and it is added to the length of the previous text and the new phone number is not in the same D area as the first.  It seems the only time the serial port works is if you declare 20 characters and you get 20 characters Works every time. But sometimes I may get 12 characters and other times I can get more than 100. I have used the restart and clear port command with no luck.  If I set RDX to a large number and receive complete will not come on and the next receive will be added to the first.  I need a clear buffer for each receive.  How do I get around this?  If you set the RDX to 10 but 12 characters were received the 2 extra characters will be in the buffer and added to the next receive.  I can’t use end receive if x because there is nothing that is always available in the msg. And even if I do any characters received after end code is left in the buffer and screws up the next receive. I have never seen anything like this. Any ideas? Thanks Rob  
  5. Hi All I am trying to connect Cognex OPC Server with Mircrosoft SQL Server (SMSS). Do you have any idea how to do that? I couldn't find relevant information online.
  6. Serial Port issue

    Sorry its long !! I am recieving text from a GSM modem for text msg Send and receive (SMS) works ok but would be better if I could make use of the start code and end code. This way I could cut down on all the crap that is received when a text arrives. I get this  CMTI: "SM",0 I have it stored into D80 and I have that trigger a TXD that sends AT+CMGRD=0 and that tells the GSM to send the msg (The 0 is the current msg in memory) ------ The problem is that there is Carriage  Return and Line Feeds in the received msg ----      AS below ((AT+CMGRD=0 +CMGRD: "REC UNREAD","+19028991212","","22/10/20,16:57:54-16"  Hello this is the msg  OK)) When the PLC sees the carriage return it stops receiving data. And I have no start code or end code setup. (I am using characters received) The way around this is to set a high  character count in the RXD (More than the actual msg (More than the msg length)   The main issue with that is I get garbage in as the msg gets bigger. Its unreliable. I clear the port after each receive and that helps but still get the odd garbage. (Never get garbage when connected to a terminal prg). Any Ideas???? ps Even the Start Code is unreliable as it will start receiving a few characters late. Rob  
  7. Serial Ports not working

    I have a CP1L-EM and the serial ports - both of them have an issue with the port ready flag will not turn on. Power cycle still no port ready flag In settings both ports are set up as 15200 8N1 CR/LF Verified and power cycled and still no port ready flag. Is there someplace in the PLC where the ports can be disabled? Rob

  14. Until recently, I haven't had to connect to a piece of hardware using a serial connection in quite sometime. Well, that all changed yesterday when I needed to connect to a Watlow F4T Controller. I dug around in the bottle drawer of my desk and pulled at not one, but two USB-Serial Converters that I saved for just such an occasion! My old ones worked on everything from Allen Bradley SLCs, to Schneider Drives. Unfortunately, neither appear to work in a Windows 10 environment. Searching the internet, I was not able to find any drivers for these old converters, but did find some posts in another forum stating that Microsoft changed how it manages its USB ports from Win 7 to Win 10. Thanks Microsoft! Sorry, I will cut this rant short and just ask my question. Can anyone recommend a USB-Serial Converter that works in a Windows 10/11 environment?  Respectfully, Shane

  16. As the industry of plc and scada softwares continue to integrate more and more programming languages into their IDE, what is the most common language that should be learned by controls engineers (excluding Ladder Logic)?  I mainly use Python and VB for scripting but I am curious what languages other SCADA and PLC programming environments use. Should I be sticking to a specific language and learning it well or just know a little bit of them all? Let me know your thoughts!!
  17. Emerson (GE) memory map data types

     I've always had this Allen-Bradley memory map taped on my wall in my office. It used to be handy to use, until I remembered al of the prefix letters for each data type. Now I am using Emerson (GE) the old proficy software now called PAC ME machine edition. Now I'm finding it's about impossible to find the data type list amongst the thousands of help files, videos, ect... it seems like a simple thing to find, but I'm not having any luck. They use I and Q for regular inputs & Outputs, but there are R files, M files, S files, N files, G files, ect.... this is old-school PLC software that doesn't use tag names.   Is there a steadfast rule for each type, or can they be used for any type of data? Dazed and confused...  
  18. GX Works3 Projectlib Locked

    Hello, I have a problem that I need to solve in a PLC program has it's projectlib locked.  I work for a company that contracted a PLC programmer before my time to program their new version of their control cabinets. The company did not write any specific contract with the contractor and just relied on his work. The guy later delevered a buggy software that is kind of functional (the bugs came up at the commissioning after the guy was paid and now he refuses to help or to provide more consultations). I have as a task to freshen this up and make it work without bugs, the problem is that the Projectlib is locked and I cannot access the source code.  The only thing that I can changes that I can make to the code is to put some logical circuits between the I/O of the already existing function blocks, which solved some problems, but not all and it keeps one of the most important ones as well. Anyways, that's my story, so now my question is, is there and possible way of unlocking the projectlib? Any feedback would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advace!
  19. I'm trying to understand the basics of using a serial to ethernet converter such as this Comtrol DM-EIP-2101, with Studio5000 code. Basically I have a weighing machine that only outputs data via RS-232 and I need to send that data to a PC that will process it through a Studio5000 program and have the data displayed on an HMI using FTview SE. Is it as simple as just connecting the serial and ethernet to the converter and it does all the work? Obviously checking ip addresses and firmware will need to be verified. The main thing I am unsure of is the process of passing the individual data packets from the machine to the Logix code on the PC,  things like what the weight of the item was, was it over weight or under, etc....  Would there be an AOI or tags built into the software for a machine like this Checkweigher? I've worked with much smaller items like Cognex Dataman cameras and I know you can just use their AOI that allows you to simply call a tag if you want to display information like if a scanned barcode was correct or whatever. If anyone has done something similar I'd appreciate any guidance. It can be difficult getting the information from the manufactures so I'm looking for answers anywhere I can. EDIT: I guess I should also clarify that only using one or the other (serial or E/IP) is not an option. It will be a serial connection from the Weighing machine to the converter and then Ethernet to the PC.
  20. Dear forum, I am facing a trouble at the moment and hoping somebody can assist. I have one HMI software, GT Designer 3, HMI: GS2107 and/or GT2107, the software works so far so fine. The software is used on several products, I dont want to maintain two or even more software versions. Two serial devices are connect: 1x MODBUS RS-485 1x MODBUS RS-232. The data transfer is done via DDT, no direct calls. The DDT transfer the MODBUS address to the internal GD-Registers. The GD-Registers are used within the HMI. My trouble is that in some cases, there is no RS-232 device connected. This creates time outs, slows down the HMI and its just not nice looking (I have a warning implemented "WARNING NO CONNECTION TO SERIAL DEVICE RS-232". Is there a way, that I can select (retained) that the RS-232 is connected / or not? Once the software is configured "NO RS-232 CONNECTED" I can handle the rest of the software.   Anybody an idea how to do this? Many thanks.
  21. Newbie in the field of Automation here! I have a waste water project that requires operating 6 pumps to empty a sump. The water level in the sump is being monitored by an analog ultrasonic sensor. The analog range is divided into 5 levels; level 1 being the lowest and level 5 being the highest. The way the pumps operate is analogous to the water level, i.e., 5 pumps will run at level 5, 4 pumps will run at level 4, 3 at level 3, 2 at level 2, and only 1 pump will run at level 1. The sixth pump is used to run the pumps sequentially and that's where I need help. Basically, the pumps can not be assigned to a certain water level as this would result in the pumps at the lower level run way more as compared to the pumps assigned to higher levels. The pumps need to alternate so as to keep the running hours of each comparable. Another requirement is that say if pump 1 turns on due to water level rise and then turns off due to water level fall, and again if the water level rises, then the next pump should start instead of pump 1, and so on for the rest of the pumps. Also, if one pump goes on some kind of fault, the 6th pump comes in and runs in its stead until the fault is reset. I'm trying to come up with a ladder program to make all this happen but hoped that I could find some help online. I feel like this is a common project and there should be someone that can give me the proper solution. With thanks, Aafaq.

  24. G9SP Configurator

    I am at a client site that has a line with multiple Omron G9SP-N20S safety controllers installed and I need to make a modification to the system.  I tried to install the Omron Configurator and it asks for a serial number, and will not install without one.  Omron said that it is on the CD that ships with the unit, but the equipment manufacturer did not supply any of the CDs.  The only Omron solution is to order a replacement CD, that will take 5 days, which is 5 days too long as there is a hard stop in 2 days.  I have tried entering numbers found on the controller, with no success.  Does anyone have a better way, special contacts at Omron, to et it faster?
  25. 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!!!
