  2. S7 200 SEG INSTRUCTION

    Hello guys. We are trying to replace a S7 200 PLC at our station with S7 1200.  We are reading the program on the S7 200 and recreating the same on the S7 1200. However, we have encountered the SEG  instruction used several times in the S7 200 (microwin) program. And the SEG instruction is not available in TIA Portal (we are using TIA 11) for the S7 1200. We have tried to read the s7 200 system manual but the explanation of the instruction is not sufficient to help recreate it. Could anyone know how we can create our own equivalent of the SEG instruction? If anyone has the SEG instruction already created as a program, it would be very helpful. Thank you.  
  3. Hi all  I need help with communication between Mitsubishi L06CPU-P with Siemens S7-1500 by Modbus TCP. It's necessary to send data from L06CPU to S7-1500, but I don't know anything about mitsubishi and gx works2.  Picked up some pics how I did it, but I didn't verified how it works. Can anybody help me with this? https://ibb.co/8KDmg5x https://ibb.co/Jm8shCx   edited: I also found LQnUDEModbusTCP_GW2_with_FC_V120 library, but how it works I dont know
  4. Passwords in Runtime

    Hi I'm looking for a little bit of help. I have a WinCC HMI which will not let me log on with one of the passwords. The general logon and admin both work fine. The Engineer password doesn't work (no display at the top of the screen where the other user names are displayed). There is no warning that the password is in correct or the account locked out (missed in the original programing I think). I have all the project files however I'm using a runtime licence. I would like to log in as admin open the project and clear the password lockout. The issue I have is that I have to use TIA portal and it will not show the project file, is this due to the fact that I have a runtime licence. Is there another way to see if the user name is locked and removed. Like I said I have the admin password which works.   Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. Kind Regards
  5. 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. Deleting Alarm Logs Wincc HMI

    Hi, how can I get rid of those alarms with status I(O) ? They are simply something like duplicates and they re making it hard to read the logs.
  14. Hi everyone! I have a question to all of you guys - do you ever use any software or online tools to manage your automation/electrical engineering projects? I have worked in a number of companies and have seen various scenarios, from using excel tables to run multi-million dollar projects to using proprietary SW for every little tiny project. Unfortunately I do not have experience working for any major big integrator and am very curious how projects are managed at this level (and if every engineer likes the way it is handled).  Additional question - does anyone have ever used a software to automatically generate the PLC code? I know some companies develop products to generate the "skeleton" of PLC program and I think it is a great thing to have.
  15. Hi all. I would like to get in contact with whoever can help me in my particular problem. I hold an HNC level in robot and plc programming but for different reasons I'm still trying to get on the industry but is being a hard task. It's been a while that I'm trying to get into some companies by agencies and they are always asking for something that I can't provide like two years experience. Basically I'm writing here trying to find someone that can help me in anyway. Currently I live in Shrewsbury and it will be complicated to get relocated but nothing is impossible if things are interesting for both sides. Thanks to all even for read it and just consider the possibility to help me on any way.   
  16. Network Dropouts at Night!

    We have been having a re-occurring issue where some of our PLC's throughout our plant have a network outage that occurs around the same time every night. The PLC's are disbursed among the plant and it has been confirmed no large pieces of equipment are being turned on around this time every night... The network traffic does not fluctuate around this time and is not near a "troubling" level. There was a reboot to one of our servers on the same VLAN as the PLC's that are having the connectivity issues... What could have changed from a server reboot to remedy this issue, the server is not communicating to the PLC's, they are just on the same VLAN.

In Report generation we can print the PDF file which the data's are already entered in that particular page but my requirement is, i need to take print out the following details 1.The parameters should be stored in report from my batch start to batch stop with date and time. 2.And also i want to take report for some particular dates (that dates should be selectable from HMI)  Any idea how to do this?      Please see the attached image (example) and am badly need this please help me  https://youtu.be/tvao1QLlHnM
  20. Tia Portal Programming Help PLEASE

    Hello I am having some difficulty writing code for a specific function using Tia portal and a S7-1200. I 10 Digital inputs and 1 analogue output set for 0-10V. When 1 DI is high I need the AQ to be at 1V, when any 2 DIs are high I need the AQ to be at 2, When any 3 DIs are high I need the AQ to be at 3V and so on.... I just can't work out the best way to do achieve this.   For a bit more info the to what the project entails the digital inputs are all coming back from DOL starters for woodworking equipment at workstations. When one of these starters is turned on a signal is sent back to the PLC DI card, this open a solenoid in extraction pipework and also increases the frequency at a VSD to extract the dust. So when more workstations are in use the higher the frequency of the VSD will be and the faster the motor will run allowing adequate extraction at all stations
  21. TIA Portal multiuser

    Hello! I'm very new to the TIA Portal, and i need some answers about Multiuser service. In the near future i need to program some PLC's with TIA Portal with my co worker simultaneously.. He told me that he  doesnt know, how this will work, because he dont know how the multiuser server works (+ needs license maybe?). In Step 7 we can program the PLC simultaneously, i just upload my FC to to PLC, and he works in another FC. He said that this is not the case with TIA Portal, and instead we need to exchange our projects frequently. But is it true? I need some license for this, and do some extra work, to work together with my co.worker? I only want to load my FC's into the PLC and my colleague load in another Fc's,DB's, etc.. Sorry for the beginner question, i never worked with TIA Portal.
  22. LOGO! 8 TIA portal WinCC

    Hi all experts, I am LOGO! 8 PLC programmer, and now I am beginning to start SCADA developement. I want to ask which software should I install ?, 1.

  24. B&R Power Panel 100 calibration

    Good day! Please tell me the options for calibrating the touchscreen of the B & R Power Panel 100 4PP120.1043-31 Rev.K0 without BIOS. After the damage, the touch screen managed to calibrate. After replacing the touchscreen with a new serviceable one, it is impossible to "push" the buttons - you need to start above the button, off-screen. There is no project source. A faulty touchscreen also fails to do a calibration. Can I reset the default calibration settings? Where is the calibration table stored? Is there a way to immediately call calibration after power on? I would be very grateful for any ideas!
  25. SLC-500 Power Supply Short?

    Anyone have experience with the old SLC-500s? I have one machine that is about 13 years old and I think they used a new old stock SLC-05/04 when they built it. Anyway I had a battery error, which makes sense since the battery was very old, and I lost my program when I tried to replace it, which makes sense because the capacitor which is supposed to hold the charge is very old. When I tried to re-download the program to the PLC, I could not connect, I realized my issue now was no null modem... and my driver not working on my RS-232 to USB converter. My question is:  What is the port above the DB-9 port used for? It was labeled PROG, so when my DB-9 serial cable didn't work I tried a serial cable for a mitsubishi FX series on the top port... and.... my power supply died. Is this a common thing on SLC-500 power supplies? Can you short them by using the wrong cable? The weird thing is the fuse on the front was not blown. Is there a fuse inside I can get to and replace? We are planning on just keeping this machine a few more years so we don't want to upgrade it. The CPU was fine afterwards.
