  1. Hello, I'm currently researching Rockwell controllers for our PLC implementation, but there are some aspects I couldn't find in the manuals.  I would greatly appreciate it if you could provide more details on the following: ①Procedure for Adding Modules Online: In the manual "1756-um001p-en-p," it mentions the possibility of adding units online.  However, I couldn't find specific instructions on how to do this.  For instance, with I/O modules, I assume it's as simple as physically attaching them to the chassis using RIUP,  but I'm unsure about the software side (e.g., Logix5000) and any operations required on the controller itself. ②Online Module Addition for Remote I/O: The manual mentions that EtherNet/IP modules can be added online. Would it be possible in either of the following scenarios?  ②-1 Adding I/O modules to the chassis of an existing remote I/O station.  ②-2 Creating a new remote station. Our investigation has hit a roadblock, and we're in quite a quandary.  If you have any information on these matters, your guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  2. Hi there, I am adding a user login screen to one of our machines. I've already added the user and it shows current user on my string. I want to make the user log in before accessing the rest of the system or continues with normal start up. How do I set this condition?
  3. EasyBuilder Pro question

    Hi! I am using cMT-SVR-100, and i need to get the UserName to my PLC. I have difficulty getting the UserName-Register: PLW-10754 from the PLC (OMRON NX1P2). In the documentation is written register LW-10754 should do the same thing like PLW-10754, but it doesn’t. The approach i found on internet is to use a macros, but PLW-10754 doesn’t support macros. Please help. Any help will be appreciated.   Thank You in advance
  4. Hey everyone, I'm new to programming PLCs and I've run into a problem. I have a Micrologix 1400 Series B PLC, and for the past month, I've been using a free trial of RSLogix 500 Starter. But now, the trial ran out, and so I bought a license for "RSLogix Micro Starter". The problem is that when I downloaded my updated file to the PLC for the first time with micro starter, the PLC's outputs don't work anymore. I checked the PLC screen and the inputs from the HMI screen are getting recognized, but the inputs from the physical sensors are not. Also, none of the outputs are being activated on the PLC at all, which I can tell by looking at the I/O status on the PLC screen itself. I then uploaded a new test program, where you press a button and a light turns on, but that doesn't work either. I haven't changed any of the physical wiring, only thing I've changed is that I'm using RSLogix Micro Starter as opposed to RSLogix 500 Starter. I spoke to a Rockwell technician about this and he said that there shouldn't be any problem, as I haven't done anything wrong. So I now ask everyone on this forum if they could help me out a bit.
  5. Hello, has anyone had success in creating a wedge with borders that change due to its assigned tags? Attempting to create a range on a gauge using wedge, but am unsure how to approach this considering it wouldn't be rotating the wedge around a point but rather changing the size of the wedge. 
  6. Hi there! This is my first time using Rockwell automation software and I have some questions I can't answer. When I'm running the FactoryTalk runtime application with a simulated controller, I get disconnected from Logix Designer, so I can't online watch the program. If I try to simulate using 'Test Application' in FactoryTalk View Studio, it appears to communicate, but buttons don't make any effect when pressed.   Hope you can throw some light on it! Thanks in advance!  
  7. Hi there! I have an Allen-Bradley SCL05/04 PLC. It has an RS-232 port, a 3 DH+ connector and a circular port with programming pins. An NB-Omron HMI is connected to the RS-232 port. And of course I can only have the screen connected. Is there any possibility to connect through the PLC programming port to be able to follow the program online?   Here is atached photos of the PLC:      
  8.   Replacing dead powerflex 700 with 753 talking via ethernet. Any good instructions on how to update the file from 700 to 753 on rslogix 5000?                                    
  9. Hi, Does anybody know if its possible to access the "Inhibit Module" tick box within the Hardware Device Connection tab from the PLC code? I'm hoping to turn this on / off depending on whether certain modules of machine are physically installed.  e.g. A Kinetix Drive / Point IO etc. Thanks
  10. 1769-IT6

    Hi all. I have a 1769-IT6 thermocouple/mv input module. It is connected to a micrologix 1500 unit. The green okay light illuminates on power up, but after you download the program and put it in run mode the processor faults. Terminal block with the cjc's are on the unit. The error message just says the I/O module has encountered an error. The hex code under status bit 6 is 179h. This error code is not in the manual. Has anyone else encountered this? Oh and I only have channel 0 enabled for type k thermocouple. Has anyone else had this issue, or know if it is a configuration issue. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you. 
  11.  I've been debating whether to stay at my current employer who uses Emerson PAC software, vs going back to a similar company that uses Rockwell (compact/control logix) mainly because A-B is used by most companies around here. I work as a technical temp, usually 12 month contract jobs. Learning the Emerson PAC (aka Prophecy) seems to be a waste of time, since I am not aware of any companies that use it, other than my current employer. My placement company is pushing back, but I know I am correct. I do not have hard numbers, but I've been around the industry for 20+ yers, and have only seen 1 company use Emerson.   Does any one agree or disagree, or have some circumstantial evidence of the actual market share of A-B vs Emerson. I am mainly working in the Auto industry, in Michigan. Just looking at this site, there are 3200 postings for GE and Emerson combined, vs 58,000 postings for A-B. 
  12. I have a 1747-L30B SLC Brick and it is set to load from EEPROM on boot S:5/8, Error S:1/10, and Run S:1/12. I need to make changes to the program and then store it to EEPROM via "Comms>EEPROM>Store to EEPROM."  When I attempt to store the program with changes, it displays the message "Insufficient Memory Module Size." I assumed the EEPROM memory was maxed out, but I also uploaded the existing program currently stored to EEPROM, made no changes, and attempted storing it back to EEPROM and received the same message. Any advice?

Ring, redundancy, almost 10 year project.
  14. Hey, does anyone know why the simulation mode is on? how to change it? (LED SIM )
  15. Hello all,    I have 3 kinetix 5500 drives connected in series but some how the 3rd drive lost power. all the fuses in the cabinet look good. nothing else is tripped either.    any advice is appreciated.  thank you   
  16. Hey guys,   I am looking to query a database through FactoryTalk SE.  I will be scanning packages, and using that bar code to find a lane assignment from the database.     My question has to do with where the VB script will reside in the FactoryTalke SE program.  I want this script to run at all times.  I see that each screen has a "VBA Code" but I am assuming that these will only run when the screen is visible.   Where does this have to be stored in order to run all the time?   Thanks In Advance!
  17. Good morning experts, i have a little problem with a Alarm display (user) and i hope with your huge experience you will may help me. Thank you very much in advance  Let me explain best. I would like use a slider to control a Alarm display (user), i tried to do it, but the slider doesn't scroll up/ scroll down like i will want. It doesn't scrolling through the pages and it heighlights just some alarm. Could you give me a bit advice, please? 
  18. Good day,  I retreived the event log from 2x RM's today, I found on the one RM that there has been more than 700 million events. Apart from switchover events, there following event shows up a lot: (C2) Bridge Connection Deleted       Starts/Stops   Byte 1 (0xFF) : Byte 2 (0xFF) : Byte 3 (0xF2) : Byte 4 (0x13) : Byte 5 (0x0) : Byte 6 (0x0) :  Our system: 1756-RM2 1756-L75 1756-CN2R 1756-EN2TR 1756-EN2TR 1756-EN2TR 1756-EN2TR The CN2R's are connected to 12x 1771-ACN15 and 2x 1756-CN2R in remote racks, which is also set up to be the keepers. The EN2TR's are connected to their respective ETAPs/EN2TR's in ring topology.   We have experienced some issues when switching over. Hope someone can tell me what that message means regarding the Bridge Connection.    
  19. Hi everyone... I'm not a AB expert.. I'm using L74 controller, Rm2 redenduncy module,  EN2TR and EN2T module (on each chassis) on my control logix project and having 3 remote IO's rack on ring topology... I have use EN2TR for ring topology and EN2T for scada communication. The problem is my controllers are not synchronising on fibre optics... I have to connect both EN2T modules with one an other for controller's synchronisation. They are syncing over ethernet but not over optical... your help is appreciated    Thanks in advance
  20. Hello, On our DCS we have a button that will open an RDP connection to our PLC server and open the .mer file connecting the DCS to the PanelView HMI. This is supposed to be used for troubleshooting purposes only, but that is not the case. Is there a way to prevent operators from operating the HMI through the RDP while still allowing them to have read only access?   Thanks, Michael
  21. Hello, denizens of Mr.PLC. I'm trying to talk to an old TSX17-20, and have acquired the DOS files for PL7 22. However, when installing via floppy drive, I'm getting a fatal error saying that the User Interface is missing. FATAL ERROR: 251 Your Telemecanique system in incomplete. Ensure that User Interface is correctly installed.   I'm aware that PL722 (and PL7-1/2/3, etc.) require Telemecanique's DOS User Interface to run, but I can't for the life of me find installation files, and, as it is no longer supported by Schneider, no luck getting it from their site. Apparently, it used to be hosted there. Would any of you wonderful folk have the links or files to this user interface? Apparently, PL7 22 5.0/5.1 have never required/no longer require a license. It was a drag to find these files, so I'm posting the PL722 files (in two zips, representing the two floppies) so that there's an easy to find reference for them. PL722D1.ZIP PL722D2.ZIP
  22. I have a 2 CompactLogix PLCs running right now, communicating CIP Safety and Standard data over Ethernet I/P.  For reasons I can't explain right now, the IP address of the second one HAS TO change semi-randomly (the 1st PLC is static).  Setting the 2nd PLC's IP to static or assigning it a static DHCP address is the obvious solution, but for the purpose of this question, that cannot be done. Is there a way to programmatically change its IP address on the 1st PLC's program?  (There is an HMI attached to the 1st PLC and adding a screen to enter in the new address would be trivial.)  The only bit I'm still missing is how do I change the IP address on the module in the 1st PLC so that it's pointed at the right IP address of the 2nd one when it changes.    I found instructions on how to use msg instructions, but that hasn't worked yet.  Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  23. I have an analog output card 1734-OE2V and there is in the fault/actions page parameters for program mode. What is program mode and when it is activated? Fault mode is clear but... Program should be written the value, but when this happens?
  24. Hi,  Can someon help me with the following question. Like what makes a Kinetix 6000 drive a Guarded drive ? What type of safety stuff can you set to make it more safe.  Is it some parameter ? I am bit confused, by the manual. Should I active it in the PLC program or how ? Or it is some setting like a safe speed or torque.  I would really appreciate any help. Thank you so much ahead.  Have a great day, thanks for the reading.
