  1. ACD file to PDF

    Hello, I have an .ACD file but do not have any software to read the controller tags. Can anyone please help me convert the file into a pdf? I can see from Notepad that is was made using RSLogix 5000 V21.   Thanks! G Pump_17_11_09.ACD
  2. I am copying some data from a vendor PLC through MSG instruction into my PLC through CIP data table read. Is there a better way to break down this array of data into individual real tags through an instruction (something similar to WORD_to_BIT instruction in Modicon). I was looking at FAL instruction but its not exactly doing what I am looking for. Any help is greatly appreciated.

  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. Hi All, Hope you all doing well in this pandemic life.  I would need your expertise with an issue I have been struggling with for past few days and thought to reach out here. I am working on a migration project with GE PLC and Citect SCADA 7.10. The GE PLC is migrated to ControlLogix L74 Rev24.10 while Citect SCADA is retained. For testing I only have L71 and L82 and could not managed to organise L74. When the code the loaded in L71 and connected to Citect, I cannot see tags in Graphic page but I see the subscription.txt in Debug folder shows all tags good . The same code when loaded in L82, the Citect works instantly.  Does anyone know this behaviour of PLC and SCADA? Regards, DeeEngr

  9. Hello everyone, Working in Automation for the first time as a Co-op student so i'm fairly new to PLC's and the Automation field in general. I've recently been tasked with converting a RSlogix 5 program from an old PLC 5 project into a Studio5000 project. I referenced the manual (I'll attach link below), and had no issues using the RSlogix Project Migrator tool that I downloaded off the Rockwell website. My problem is that once I convert the program, my I/O tags that were originally sequenced in octets(0-7, 10-17, 20-27, ...) from the RSlogix 5 program, are switched into a sequential scheme in Studio5000 that just increments them in order (1, 2, 3, 4, ...). I hope this make sense, but basically the first seven tags match between the projects, but then I:010 in rslogix 5 is equivalent to I[8] in 5000, I:011 is I[9], and so on and so forth. Has anyone had this issue before and found a way to have Studio5000 keep the original octet scheme? I don't see this normally being an issue, but the customer has specifically asked that the I/O tag names be kept the same as the original program. Thanks for any help. - Ben   Converting PLC-5 reference manual link: https://literature.rockwellautomation.com/idc/groups/literature/documents/rm/1756-rm085_-en-p.pdf
  10. RedLion G303 Tags avalible

    Hi How many tags are available to be used in a  RedLion G303? I added a new tag  from  a PLC that is on line with other tags ,, but it says it is not available?
  11. I have multiple PVP 1500's on the same network. From the one in my control room i need to be able to see what user is logged into what HMI. How would I address the system tag of another HMI on the same network would I use the IP address? thank you for any help in advance
  12. Hi everyone, I just want to layout the structure of the question. I have a GOT2000 (GT27* series) that I have hooked up and communicating with an Allen-Bradley PLC. I have established connection and can pull out certain tags values from the PLC program in RSLogix 5000. While I can read the tag values, I cannot modify them (in certain conditions).  So let say that I have a User-Defined Structure named "Smoke_Detector" and here are it's available members: Smoke_Detector:   - ALARM (BOOL)   - ON_TIME (DINT) * DINT in Allen-Bradley but Signed Binary 32   - Battery_Life (REAL)  My question is that while I can read and display the tag and its members through the following:   - LAMP for Smoke_Detector.ALARM   - Numerical Display for both Smoke_Detector.ON_TIME and Smoke_Detector.Battery_Life But when I tried to modify the values via a Bit Switch or Numerical Input, it does not operate on them.  However, if these tags are members are just standalone tags, meaning that they are not within a UDT in RSLogix 5000, then I can operate/ modify them just fine.  Here are the things that I have tried: * Making sure that the permission are set to Read/ Write in RSLogix 5000 * Making sure that the tag definition in GT Designer 3 follows the structure where @[channel]:[Network #]:[Station #]::[Tag instance and member (e.g Smoke_detector is the instance and Alarm is member] Any possible insight and input are appreciate! 
  13. Proface historical trend

    Hi Guys! I have an another question , I hope you guys can/want to help me. I have some problem with an proface panel. I want to make a hisotrical trend, but when I want to select the channels (tags what I want to monitor) I can't select anything, because undetermined. I think I should set the tags kind of a buffer list, but I don't find it. So my question is how can I set the tags. I can't changed it at all. If the answer is I need to make a buffer list, then where can I find it ?  Thank you so much. 
  14. Any new tags I add in studio 5000 the HMI project shortcut cannot locate the tags, it says unresolved route to processor. It's the same shortcut all of the other tags are using. Please help. 
  15. This is my first time to the forum and I am still very new to plc programming. I just had to move all of our software over to a new computer ( kind of new) it's running windows 7 pro. The same is as the computer before. Same computer name, same I'm, same file directory. However when I add tags in studio 5000 and reference them in the HMI, it says it is unresolved in route to the processor. It only does this for the new tags. I used the same shortcut and everything so I am at a complete loss here. What do I do.

  17. Micrologix 1400 Float TAG

    Hello,  I have a micrologix 1400 plc connected to a length measurement gauge. The gauge sends an analog value to the plc to an analog input. I convert the value into a dimension and send it to F8:0. but I need this value in three different steps in the program. Since i just have one element of float (F8:0) is there anyway i can store the value in a different location or create more floating point tags eg. F8:1. F8:2 ?    Thank You

  21. Hello I downloaded a .mer file on the Panel view 1000 but it shows errors on the display graphics. i have configured the Rslinx communication several times by selecting the rigt PLC in Design and Runtime mode. I am using Facotry Talk view 8.20 and creating 5.10 runtime file. Please advice. I was able to correctly download and use the HMI on a similar machine. I dont know what am I missing on this one.    Thanks Pratik Jain
  22. Track NS series IP addresses

    I am using the NS series touch screens and NS-Runtime. Do they have a System word that stores the IP address of that touch screen or PC running the NS-Runtime application. I want to be able to trigger different functions in my project depending on the IP address.
  23. GXWorks2 Label changes

    Hi Sorry if this has been asked before but I have done some searching and couldn't find any answers in the forum. If I have a label that I use in my ladder, I can edit the address of the label any everything works OK (i.e. the ladder references the Label and not the direct address) If I need to change the text of the label, but keep the address the same, the ladder fails as it is using the label as the reference to the address. Is there anyway I can change a label and have it automatically update the ladder with the change  e.g. lets say I have a label called 'counter_1' which is used throughout the ladder code. If I want to change the name of the label to 'counter_A', I can alter it in the Global Labels (the excel type thing), but then have to update it manually everywhere in my ladder. any help would be much appreciated thanks Andy    
  24. Good Day, I have done a quick search and couldn't find any pertinent information, so I was hoping somebody else might have been through this in the past. We are using a 1769 L32E and are trying to record the ambient temperature of the cabinet the PLC is in. We don't want to incur the expense or use the space that an external temperature sensor/thermocouple would entail. Is there an onboard temperature sensor that has a tag available in the ladder? Thanks, Jed
  25. Hi all. Firstly, I am not a programmer, I just need advice. We have HMI's using NS-Runtime and we keep getting this message. Now, this is why I am contacting you all. This has happened over 20 times on 20 different HMI's which we have replaced over the last 3 years. We have been told by our software supplier that the com port is "on it's way out". There is NO WAY over 20 hmi's over that period will deveop com port faults. So my question guys, can someone give me a few tips on what to try before I change HMI's over ervery dang mponth please? I am really at the end of my tether here. We connect our HMI's to the Omron PLC's via a standard serial. If we change to another HMI the machine communicates after obviously a long period of downtime. Should we reset the plc? I will take ANY advise please guys.
