Need a little help
Jerryvd3 posted a topic in CX-ProgrammerI am probably over looking something simple but I am stuck. I need to count how many containers come down a conveyor and display it in Indusoft Web Studio 2020. I am using a CJ2M to count from a sensor doing an binary incremental long word (++L) Using long word as the count will need to go into the thousands. (not 100% if this is the correct way). My problem is after 99 the value sent to indusoft is not a number but letters or signs. I am sure their is a simple solution but I have given my self a headache and need a little guidance please.
Cycle Time and Accurate Positioning
RainG posted a topic in CX-ProgrammerHi All, I just take over a project which involve accurate positioning and movement up to 0.010mm(around 10 microns) of a servo motor. I found out that my motor always move to an incorrect position. Let's say I want it to move to absolute position of 5.210mm, I found out that it may move more till 5.235 or move less 5.190(something like that). So i start to check if I'm outputting correct pulse. Using CX-Drive, I connect to the driver then i found out that the pulse is correct and consistent(for example i use my pulse per revolution and pitch to determine how many pulses) Currently I'm using an incremental encoder and servo motor and my PLC cycle time is around 12 ms and my servo move at a speed of 0.66mm/s. So I was wondering if my PLC scan time will affect my accuracy in moving ?? I'm using a CJ2M PLC with CJ1W-NC413 pulse card , incremental encoder and a servo motor. I want to make sure is not software limitation or anything wrong on software side before I bring it to my mechanical team Appreciate all inputs here and thanks!
Problem to read pulses (encoder) of VHSC24/C Card using CompactLogix
Vinicius Santos posted a topic in Allen Bradley / Rockwell AutomationHello guys, I am running an application for packaging measurement using a sick DFS60B incremental encoder (programmable from 1 to 10000 PPR). In more detail, it passes packaging on a conveyor belt and we have created an inspection station and an expulsion station (defective packaging), so we use the encoder to check at specific points of the packaging for defects (we use special sensors to check defects). ) (there are four in total). However, the problem we are having is the following: When reading the encoder in the PLC, the same means that performs "jumps" and does not enter the windows (GRT and LES) created on the ladder, ie, as if it were not continuous. . I understand that because the VHSC24 card works at 1 MHz in counter mode, this type of problem should not occur according to our application is not even 100 KHz. For example, our case: Using 1000 PPR and the motor speed (coupling output) is 3600 RPM (in practice it is around 1750 RPM) the frequency is calculated as follows: F = (PPR X RPM) / 60. : F = (1000x3600) / 60 = 60 KHz, ie 60 KHz is much less than 1 MHz, I think this kind of problem does not occur. Application Info: . Studio 5000 V31 . PLC Model: Rockwell 1769 - L19ER-BB1B CompactLogix 5370 . Encoder Card: 1734-VHSC24 / C . Incremental Encoder: Sick, DFS60 up to 10,000 PPR and HTL Electrical Interface. Using a 200 mm circumference / perimeter wheel. . Motor Nameplate Data: 1670 RPM, 0.37 kW / 0.5 HP, 60 Hz . Inverter: Weg CFW500, Output Frequency 62 Hz. Card Settings we use RPI: 2 ms Type: Counter, but we already use it as Encoder X1 Store Count Mode: Disabled Filter: No Filter, but we use 50 KHz and 5 Khz filters in our tests. Counter Attenuator: 1 Wiring Diagram VHSC24 We turn on encoder A at input 0 and encoder Aret at input 1 In logic (Structured Text) Using the PMUL instruction to convert encoder (Pulse) data to mm scale. (Ladder) The window comparisons part (GRT and Les) and other part of the process. We emphasize that we performed the tests also only with the reading and comparison part of the data, excluding the other parts, precisely to verify the issue of Scan, but the problem persisted. If anyone here in the forum has some information that can help us, I would appreciate it.
Sysmac Studio - Power Interruption
Madhura Magesh posted a topic in NJ Series / Sysmac StudioGreetings every one...! I am using NX1P2 PLC and G5 series Incremental Servo for decoiler machine. Now am facing issue, in the time of feeder working power interrupted then last position values are lost, but I need to retain last position value and feed again remain position. In the case I am telling about (MC_Axis000.Act.Pos) this variable value I need to store and retrieve it back when power came. Any sysmac software experts give me the best solution for this issue. Thanks in Advance...!!
