  1. EPLAN Help

    I am attempting to use EPLAN P8 (v.2.9) to import details from a 'holy grail' excel sheet of a cable list with terminal tags and numbers (source and target for each cable). To do this I began importing details in a trial and error fashion through the pre-planning menu to the pre-planning navigator. I have several questions. Question (1) Has anyone else tried to do this?  In the process of importing from the excel sheet I have not been able to successfully assign source and target for each cable object. It shows up on the synchronization dialog after I work through the field assignment but it disappears after import. ( I do not fully understand the proper structures, definitions, properties and levels to get what I want). I do understand if I import source and target terminals, and cable objects separately, then I can place on the detailed view and source and target are assigned then. Question (2) Does anyone know how to assign source and target to a cable object in pre-planning 'by import'?  (Reason being that the excel file is huge and manual assigning isn't feasible). On one of my attempted field assignment schemes I was able to have cable, source terminal, and target terminal, all on different levels (not actually assigned as source and target for the cable object btw.). However the result for source and target on the report (planning overview, form: f40_006) had all of the designations of the tree structure from the upper levels. For example, cable: HAC4401, source: HAC4401 X1:5, target: HAC4401 X1:5 TB1:5. (Where X1:5 is source terminal and TB1:5 is target terminal). Question (3) Does anyone know how to create a 'branch' or 'fork' in the tree structure in the preplanning navigator so that both source and target terminals (planning objects) are on the same level and so do not inherit each others details?  There's a bunch of info in reading the above I know, but if anyone can shed some light on this it would be much appreciated!!!! Thanks in advance,  MajorMac
  2. Hello to all , I need to upload the program from an old Schneider Modicon 140 CPU 113 02 , there is no backup for the program in this PLC so its not possible to know what software was used for writing the program. Is it possible to upload the program from this PLC using Eco Structure Control Expert ?
  3. I want to establish Ethernet IP communication between the following PLC CPUs. Schneider Electric - BMEP582040 Honeywell - ControlEdge UOC CPU900-CP1. Where the Schneider must be master and Honeywell must ne adapter. Let me know if anyone have done this or can help me to do so.
  4. Hello Everyone, I am writing one logic and need some help regarding that logic.   CURRENT LOGIC -  -There are two timers TON_1 and TON_2. -TON_1 timer will start as soon as PLC turns on. -After the done bit of TON_1 timer, the TON_2 timer goes on. -After the done bit of TON_2 timer, again the TON_1 timer will start. -This logic cycle will run continuously, both timers will run turn by turn. Code (Codesys/Schneider Eco Structure Machine Expert)- PROGRAM POU_1 VAR      TON_1: TON;     TON_2: TON; END_VAR TON_1(IN:=(NOT(TON_2.Q)) , PT:= T#100S); TON_2(IN:=(TON_1.Q) AND (NOT(TON_2.Q)) , PT:= T#20S);   Actual Requirement -  -There is a BOOL tag. -If the BOOL tag gets high during the TON_1 running, the logic should move to the TON_2 immediately. -If the BOOL tag does not get high during the TON_1 running, the logic should move to the TON_2 after completion of TON_1. -after the completion of TON_2, again restart TON_1. -Logic Runs continuously in a cyclic mode.   Give me your valuable idea to fulfill the logic requirement.
  5. Hi there! I was working on EPLAN Electric P8 when suddenly, the program stopped working (mouse didn't barely move, couldn't click) which resulted in a blue screen after trying to close the program (didn't manage to force stop of the VMWARE process where I execute it).  So, the thing is I can open projects and all, but everytime I close a component window I get this error window: (S275024) Couldn't find setting USER.SYSTEM.GUI.Control.MGGrid.DeviceTagGUI.116.1002.LastIndex.index. And it happens when other different windows (for example when opening Layer Manager I get the same error with LayerManger instead of DeviceTag. Also, if I try to close Eplan by clicking the red X of the window, It won't close. What can I do? There's very little info about this error code in the net and I'm running out of ideas. Thanks in advance!

  8. Dear All, TSX AEY414 was installed on a machine  and was working fine. suddenly module becomes faulty and its ERR LED tuned ON we replace the new same module and the new module was showing the same error we replace the 3rd new module , this worked for 8-12 hours fine. now the situation is that RUN LED is on of the module, but values on HMI display remains 0.0 can anyone help me please? waiting for reply Thanks  
  9. Hey! Whats up guys ;) I'm a student and I have been saving up money for PLC for quite a while now, I was recommended to use Schneider M221 TM221CE24R PLC. after buying it I looked online for some HMI and due to high price tag I ended up buying cheaper Kinco GL070E HMi for learning :D I'm trying to connect them both together using Ethernet cable but I'm having difficulties making them connected. The lights shows up ( blinking green ) and ( solid yellow ), I have tried Modbus TCP Slave, Schneider Ethernet (TCP Slave), M series, M200 Ethernet ( TCP Slave ), but nothing seems to be working :D  The best I got in 3 weeks of trail and error and countless non-english videos on youtube :D is error message on the HMI -> [2] PLC NO RESPONSE 0-01-03   I'm trying to learn and seems like I have hit a wall. Can anyone help me to see if it is even possible to connect them or do I need to save up for new HMI :( Any help would be greatly appreciated, sincerely Engelis :) 
  10. Hi there! I'm trying to communicate HMIS5T HMI with a Modicon Micro TSX3722001 PLC. The communication is OK, but whenever I try to enter some data into a numeric display I get an error that says "Method or function in Communications System unsupported" and data won't change on PLC's Animation Table. Also, if I modify a variable's value in PL7 Pro, the value in the HMI numeric display won't change properly. It displays the last digit of the binary format of the number (let's say I write a "3" on PL7 Pro, then I get a "1" on the numeric display, despite all data types being UINT, and all ranges are OK. Then if I write any number which binary version ends in 0, I get that 0 on the numeric display, nothing else. Again, all data types and ranges are OK). Changing variables' source on Vijeo Designer to Internal doesn't seem to work. So I'm wondering what else must I do in order to send and receive data from/to HMI and PLC?    Thanks in advance and I hope you can help me! Update: Got this solved. For anyone wondering, Vijeo Designer 6.2 SP8 it's kinda buggy with Unitelway communication. There's a hotfix that solves this problem, provided free by Schneider.

  12. Hello Everyone. We have Schneider TM241 PLC Along with Citect SCADA System at 100MWp Solar Power Plant to monitor and control various equipments like Inverters, Switch-Yard, MFMs, Weather Monitoring Systems etc... Government Authority here asked every solar plant to control the generation as per the instructions by Load Dispatch Center, for that we need to implement logic to control Generation as per requirement. For that we are controlling generation from inverters by giving them generation setpoints calculated by PLC using PID function.   But we are facing one problem while using PID. (FB_PID of Toolbox Library)   Suppose we need to generate only 60MW out of 100MW. So we set PID setpoint to 60MW and according to that we get PID output and according to that PID output value we provide generation setpoint to every inverters.   This system works very fine until the clouds comes into the picture.   Now suppose Setpoint of PID is 60MW and PV is also near about 60MW, and suddenly large cloud comes over plant and block solar radiation.   In this case generation comes down to 10MWp(or any value below 60MW), So output of PID will Increase and keep increasing and settle at the Maximum value. but without solar radiation generation value stays very down then Setpoint.   Now suddenly Cloud moves and again solar radiation increase, but the PID output is maximum at that time so, Suddenly Generation goes from 10MW to near about maximum capacity (100MW) instead of 60MW, and then it will slowly comes down to 60MW.   We need to rectify this generation shoot up when cloud moves. Anyone have idea how can we solve this problem or anyone have programmed PID in this kind of situation.   Is there any function block available to do this correctly like function block of PID with two Reference or something like that...   We are using TM241 which is CoDeSys based PLC.
  13. Hi there, Im having issues controlling ATV 320 VSDs over Modbus RTU with a M221 plc, does anyone have any pointers for me to look at? I believe I Have set everything up correctly but when I run the program on the plc the atv's just stay in 'NST' state I have included screenshots if they are any use   My speed reference in this example is taken from the memory word %MW0 which I am inputting via a HMI   I have addressed all my ATVs accordingly in there setting with the correct Modbus parameters and selected Modbus under the FR1 configuration, am I missing anything?? Any help is appreciated as I am really struggling   Tom
  14. hello expert i want ask some help So i tried to communicate my Omron PLC (cj2m cpu31) with SCADA from Schneider (power logic) on my omron side the comunnication on PLC already take to communication to NB so i add communication module CJ1W-SCU41-v1 I want asking how to open the communication if i want the scada become a master and my plc become slave i got this from omron website is that program compete for my case? i need configuration for scu41 module also to communicate or if you have suggestion i really open i just need to open port RS232c from scu41 so scada can read the data from my plc  tahnkyou for your help MRTU_CPU_Slave.zip

  16. 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 
  17. Hi, This is my first time to start an actual project. I have some basic to intermediate programming background with Seimens PLC in the past but with no work experience. I bought an old bandsaw machine for a very cheap price. It works fine on manual operations but I want to try and test if I can make the fully automatic function back. The current PLC installed in the machine is a Shihlin Electric SEPLC A1-30MR. It look old and the port is not familiar to me. I also have no idea if I can even get the program inside or not. Thus, I plan to replace the old PLC with a new one. Here are my questions. Should I use a PLC or can I just use a digital controller like Logo ? I need to use a loop for counting how many cuts it should do. And how many times the machine should repeat the push of my stock out per cut. What else should I consider when choosing a PLC or digital controller?   Thank you in advance. 
  18. Hello, Do you know what is the difference between the PID controllers PIDFF, PID1 and PIDP1 in a Schneider PLC? I have to modify a PLC program with a new standard of coding. The new standard use a PIDFF function bloc. If I change a PID1 bloc for a PIDFF bloc, can I use the same parameters Kp, Ti, Td? If I change a PIDP1 for a PIDFF bloc, can I use the parameters Ki and Kd to calculating Ti (ti=1/Ki) and, Td (Td = Kd)? Thanks you for your help.
  19. Hello. I am trying to make a serial RS 232C connection between Schneider Magelis HMIGXU3512 and Omron PLC CP1E. However, there seems to be a communication problems between both of the equipment. I am using cable XBT Z9740 for the serial communication cable. The format used is 8.2.N for both equipment. The baud rate is 115200. No Flow Rate is choose. Anyone can help with this kind of problems?
  20. Hi, I've been having a problem with my Schneider setup, and I can't seem to figure out the problem. I'm using Machine Expert Logic Builder and Vijeo 6.2, and I can't seem to download to my PLC. I can download to my HMI just fine, but my HMI comes back with the message as mentioned in the title. Also when I perform a full download, machine expert comes up with the message "Could not connect to the device for item "xx", selected target system "PLC name" is different from the connected device "HMI name". The weirdest thing is that machine expert shows my PLC just fine, but doesn't show my HMI. I have no idea what to do, as I feel like I've tried everything. The IP range is fine, subnet is fine. The driver in IO manager in Vijeo has the PLC nodename in it, so that shouldn't be the problem either. Does anyone know what to do in a situation like this? Thank you in advance!

  22. Hello everyone, we have a problem with a connection of a Schneider HMI and a Schmersal Security PLC, do anyone have some experience in that? it's about addressing, it's unable to map address from Schmersal PLC to Schneider HIM the address of the I/O channels in the network ? What should I do?
  23. hello I have been forced to replace a TWDLMDA20DRT with a Schneider TM221ME16R. the plc is a slave but I am having trouble getting the Modbus data exchange to work like it did with the old plc. I have setup the serial port to use Modbus etc etc and I played about with the read_var FB but this wasn't required in the old plc so im confused as to why I would need to use it on the replacement. I have come across another FB send receive message but again i'm not too sure if this is required.  the master plc uses the msg2 and exch2 command. I believe I am just missing something very simple here.   Lighting Panel - Old_PLC.twd Lighting Panel1 - Master -.twd Lighting Panel - Pillar5 -.smbp
  24. Hello everybody,   First, I used the BMX NOR 0200H module associated with a GSM modem, for the time stamp and the problem is at the level of data recovery (slave PLC), I received the value of the variable (it's OK), but instead of the modification date of the variable, I received the send date (from the master PLC to the slave PLC).   After this application, I tried to use Web Desinger to do the timestamp by recovering a .csv extension file, but the file does not generate in the memory card (I accessed the module's memory card by an FTP client).   At this stage, the BMX NOR 0200H module, does not respond to a new configuration or a modification (either by Web Designer software or by Web Server, even these last two confirms me by a dialog box that the module has accepted the change).     Thank you all for your attention.
