  1. Hello, I guess everyone knows the current availability situation with electronic parts. Due to this reason I'am looking for alternatives for the Omron NA-Panel series. I'am curious if you guys already made some good or bad experiences with third party HMIs in combination with NJ/NX PLCs. It would be a pleasure if you could indicate some brands that will work.   Thank you in advance.
  2. I'm editing a dual language project for an NA5 HMI. It's working fine except for the message at startup. To modify the project I've had to update the firmware on the HMI. I'm using Sysmac Studio 1.15. Startup language seems to be set correctly. Any ideas?
  3. Sysmac studio not installing

    Hi, I am currently trying to install sysmac studio v1.43 on my computer and I'm getting an error at the beginning of the installation process (see picture) From what I have seen on this forum I am not the first person living this situation and it seem that the user asking for help on this forum had his issue resolved with the use of a previous version, V1.25 I believe, and I was wondering if it anyone could help me with this problem to either patch it or get a compatible version for my computer.      
  4. Hello, I am working on a project currently that uses a windows application on a PC to communicate with an NX1P2 controller to read and write variables data. I found a course on Udemy which has a Visual Studio project with OMRON DLLs that are used for these communications. I confirmed with OMRON that they do have official DLLs for this, but the technical support guy has told me he is trying to find them himself.   I have attached a screenshot of the DLL references.  I am really looking for the DLL libraries, aswell as the documentation on their functionality to I can use them to communicate. Any help would be greatly appreciated!  
  5. Unable to delete a screen

    Hello AB professionals, I am using FactoryTalk View Studio v11. I am basing on an old project to build my application. I restored the project from a .mer file. I deleted or renamed some old screens, saved and closed the project. But when I open the project next time the screens I deleted still show up. When I click on it it will show an error message "Component does not exist".  In the FactoryTalk ME application, I right click a screen name on the left tree under the Graphics, and then click "Delete" or "Remove", the display would disappear at that time. But it persists on coming back next time I open the project. If you know the solution to resolve please reply. It is much appreciated.   Thank you. Lei
  6. I'm working on a program where I manipulate REAL numbers in Sysmac studio using an NX1029020 PLC. My problem is I am new to automation and I don´t know how to display those numbers when connecting to an NB HMI. I´m trying to send the data to a bar picture and a number display. My question is which AT Specification Attribute should I assign to my variables in Sysmac Studio and their corresponding Area in NB-Designer? I tried using the DM area but it didn't show numbers on the displays, only shows *****. Should I convert my real variables in Sysmac first? Or how can I keep decimal numbers and then display them? My current configuration in Sysmac: Name Data type AT Network publish ST1 REAL %D5 Publish Only ST2 REAL %D3 Publish Only My current configuration in NB-Designer Bar Picture Addr. Type D Address 3 Code type BIN Number Display Addr. Type D Address 3 Code type BIN Data type Float Integer 4 Decimal 2
  7. Hi all, Can i rename the master of numbered project (#1, #2... create used "save as new number" function)? Actually i can only open preferences window of the last number, and only edit Author and Comment. If i edit one on these two it only change it on the last number. Are there a method to change preferences for the "master" project and all the sub-number? If i would rename a project now i have to save as different project, and loose basic version control that numbered projetc provide (enought for me) and generate more confusion. In the single project i have no problem edit all Preferences include name. Versione: Sysmac Studio Standard Edition 1.47 Thanks, Andrea.

  9. Currently have NX PLC setup as an OPC UA server and an OPC client setup and communicating.  The issue is only tags that do not have a Data Type are showing up in the OPC client.  I have 2 separate OPC softwares connected to this plc through OPC UA and both are having same issue.  If I setup the OPC as a polling service, then all the tags show up as expected.  Does anyone know if this is a known issue with Omron and their OPC UA server, or is there something that I am doing incorrectly (possibly a setting within Omron that I am not aware of)?
  10. Hi. I use the email block on few of our NJ101-9020 controllers to send out daily reports or any status updates. Recently the PLC's started an unknown issue and fails to send email out anymore. I use the Mail_Send function block from Omron to send emails. The only Error ID i can get is 2005, with status being "Connection to SMTP" failed. Looking at the troubleshooting guide, i cannot find anything to do with error id 2005, in fact its missing. There is 2004 and 2006 but no 2005. I've tried all the obvious thing like, power cycle, redownload the whole project, create a new instance of Mail_Send function block etc. Nothing seems to have fixed this unknown issue. Our IT department did a full check on their side and nothing seems to be out of order. I can still remote into the PLC, so i dont know what exactly is the problem. Has anyone came across this error ID before? Any ideas why this might have been happening? It was working well until few weeks ago and nothing changed and this suddenly started. Any input is really appreciated. Thank you.
  11. OS: Windows 7 on VMware virtual machine. Sysmac Studio V 1.13. What works: Ping to PLC. Sysmac Studio -> Controller -> Controller Communications -> Ethernet via hub -> Test -> "OK". What doesn't work: Starting with new project for NX701-1600 (correct PLC): Sysmac Studio -> Controller -> Online. -> Controller -> Transfer ... -> From Controller. The task seems to run to about 90% before stopping with the error:  I can't find any reference to this error in the manuals. Has anyone got any suggestions to fix this?   Many thanks.
  12. Hello! I have been working with a Factory Talk Studio V8.0 and my computer was crashed, "blue screen". After this, I can not open my panel project anymore, I only get information Failed to open factory talk private directory for the application. How to save my project?  
  13. View File Sysmac Studio Simple PID Example A simple test program and starting values for the PIDAT instruction in Sysmac Studio. Simply run the simulator (Simulation-> Run) and toggle the Test_PID bit. Simulated feedback will allow the loop to operate normally. The setpoint can be adjusted by modifying the PID_SP variable. There is a pre-programmed data trace that traces the SP, MV, and PV. To use the data trace navigate to DataTrace0 and start the trace, flip the Test_PID bit true and the trace will log 10k samples.

  15. The summary of the issue is when attempting to update any hardware file or technology package, the package will hang up in the “copy setup” status. This state will remain indefinitely – no further progress is made past this point. These are the steps that I have used to troubleshoot this thus far: I always run Automation Studio as an administrator I have redownloaded the program a couple of times, storing the downloaded ~8 GB package in C:/temp Temp files are cleared prior to launching Automation Studio I have tested different internet connections. With and without going through the company VPN. Launching the package via local and internet connection to isolate if it is a TCP port blocking issue. At this point I’m curious if there’s different registry key changes which allow for deleting files from temporary directories… but that’s just a theory. I've attached some screenshots.    What the function of the copy setup state? How can I progress past this state?    I'll keep banging on the keyboard to figure this one out but if there is a good Samaritan out there on the web it would be MUCH APPRECIATED!
  16. I am new to automation systems and devices and I just want to know how to connect two HMI's (each one would control different things) to one PLC using Sysmac Studio and NB-Designer via Ethernet. The model of the PLC is NX1029020 and the HMI's are one NB10W-TW01B and an NB7W-TW01B. I searched for info about this topic online but I couldn't find anything that worked for me, I saw an article from OMRON where they connect two NB's to the CP series, but in my case, NB designer doesn't allow me to insert more than one HMI in the same project, I also found something similar on a youtube video that gave me an idea about how to connect multiple HMIs exporting the pks file and importing it to another HMI project but I still can´t figure out how to add both to my PLC. I would thank you a lot if you could help me with this because I know it's not a rare implementation, just I haven´t found the right way to do it. I also leave the links to the Omron article and the youtube video I found. https://www.myomron.com/index.php?action=kb&article=1554 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXx5lut7G9I
  17. Hi, Could anyone help me out on how to extract the digits present in a string in sysmac studio... Thanks in advance !!!
  18. Hi. I have been thru the F1 manual and the toolbox in sysmac, i cannot figure out how to convert the elapset time from a TON, to anything the NA5 panel wants to display. Any suggestion? (Want to show how long a certain step has run for)
  19. Hi, I have quite a noobie question. I want to create a function block to do some simple operations on 2 variables. Both variables are In/Outs (see picture attached). How can I make this function accept variables regardless of the data type? Given these is just simple math I am able to use the same instructions in REAL, INT, UINT, etc. But, the function block only lets me assign one Data Type to the In/Out variables.
  20. Hi. I want to get the full date and time into the plc, where i want to calculate when current step and full sequence is expected to finish and then later present it back on the screen. I tried to map the _HMI_DateTime to the controller, but it does not get added to the controller.
  21. Good day everybody!    I am having issues troubleshooting a machine which is controlled by a VIPA PLC. I must admit that I am not very knowledgeable with this brand so I am a bit hesitant to touch anything. From the machine's supplier I got a .wld file which I could load into an SD card and load into the VIPA PLC itself through a Master Reset procedure. Still, our issue persists so I was wondering if I could somehow extract this .wld file into Speed7 Studio (or another program) to visualize it and try to troubleshoot the issue. Or in another case, if there was a way to directly read the currently loaded program from the PLC.    As I said, I had never worked with this brand before so I am being a little overly cautious with what I touch in this PLC.    Thanks for your help! 
  22. Hi all! This maybe a simple question but my brain is not allowing me to do it. I have an array variable of INT I use for alarms. I want to compare the values in the array variable to make sure they are all zero. If they are not zero I want to turn on an alarm. I have messed with the Arrary Compare value instructions (AryCmpGTV, AryCmpLEV Etc.) The goal is to monitor all the values in the array and if one becomes greater than zero, I know that an alarm has occurred. In CX, I use 2 in-line compare statements; a greater than Zero and less than or EQ to 'some value' depending on how i split up the alarms. How can this be done in Sysmac?   Nate
  23. Hi there, I have a controller NX1P2-1140DT. I want to control a VFD with modbus serial communication. Can someone help me start from scratch ?
  24. Is it possible to give a physical proximity switch or photo eye input a value to change a vfd's speed. Speed up or slow down when it has been triggered. 
  25. Hi All, I am a new user to this Forum and definitely a newbie PLC user, so I'm not sure if this is a simple mistake. I am currently trying to correct the logic (of a sensor) on a PLC program to get a manufacturing machine back up and running. This is an issue that I have fixed via PLC several times previously, but for some reason I am having issues fixing it this time. The issue that I am having is that when I try to dig into the Logic of the PLC program (Programming > POUs > Programs > Logic > ...), nothing shows up where there is typically a PLC command ladder. I get the error "No instruction in rung" next to all of the PLC program modules. I am connecting to a Omron NX1P2 CPU via laptop & Ethernet cord. To give you background on my troubleshooting process, I have verified that the I am connected to the PLC controller, by using the Windows Run program to ping the IP address of the controller. After verifying connection, I attempted to connect to the controller using SYSMAC studio. At this step, a troubleshooting window appeared with the issue "Minor fault" "Tag Data Link Connection Timeout". When I look at the Controller Status at the bottom right corner of SYSMAC, it says that I am online and connected to the correct IP address (green circle). Under that, ERR/ALM has a red circle next to RUN Mode. Ignoring the troubleshooting window, I can click Synchronization and "Transfer from Controller". A dialog box pops up and reads "...Controller does not have the POU program source...". Pressing yes to ignore this, the transfer completes. This is where I encounter the issue of having nothing show up within the path of Programming > POUs > Programs > Logic > ... . I have a feeling that this is a connectivity or settings issue, but I am not sure. I have checked my ethernet splitter (D-Link DES-105) and everything seems to be connected and working. If anyone has some insight into this issue I would greatly appreciate any help. Thank you in advance! Best cszikszai
