  1. 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.
  2. First of all, I'm running version 20.01.00 CCW. I have a project that uses a mciro870 and panelview 800. It also has 11 powerflex 525 VFD's attached, all ethernet. Everything has been going well but today I hit a wall when importing tags into the Panelview device group.  I currently have a little over 800 tags and will have about 1400 I think when finished. The Plc section shows tons of memory available and when I check through 'config' on the Pv800 itself, it also has tons of memory left. When I do the import, it brings in 744 tags and then skips the remaining one. It even includes that in the msg block after the import. It has to see that tags or it wouldn't know that they are being skipped. I've been trying to work with Rockwell support ( of course I got the new guy who's never seen the software before) and my local distributor.  I've looked through the rockwell knowledge base, the manuals and online and I haven't seen this problem posted. Does anyone know if there is a limitation on the number of tags? I can't image an odd number like 744. thanks, mark    
  3. Hi guys,  I have been thinking about wether can increase the numbers of produced and consumed tags, between my plc-s. Currently I have two plc it already have produced and consumed tags, but unfortunatelly soon we are running out of free tags. I read the manual and it said I can make 125 dint tags, currently we have only an array with 10 element.  If I make a new one and I kinda copy it, with different names, will it be work ?  Or do I have to set something else ?  Can I ruin the communication with the two plcs ?  THanks ahead.
  4. Hi All,Cx-Supervisor, NJ501-1340, Sysmac Gateway.I have been writing an update for a project and converting to this new controller.It's a pretty big project.Using a combination of Ladder and ST.Using Cx-Supervisor 3.5.I created some new Variables in Studio and made them Publish only.Started to create Points in Supervisor and made them I/O connected to the variables in Studio. No problems everything was connecting and working just fine.Then one of the points would not update. I could change it in the PLC and it would not change On the HMI.I deleted it and recreated it and it did the same thing. (sometimes points in Supervisor just stop working and recreating them fixes it).I then copied the control and pasted the old point into it and it did the same. Then other started to fail. Showing no reaction.I stopped the gateway and restarted, no help, I rebuilt the HMI, nope.The can check the tags in Sysmac gateway and they always change when the PLC changes but not the HMI.I checked the point maintenance in Supervisor and it would not change.I dumped all the affected variable in the PLC and in the HMI and recreated them. Then it got stranger.I could change some on the HMI and it would show in the PLC but not the other way.This is on Bools and UINTS.Stopped CX-server, tried using it with Win8 compatibility. nope.Pulling my hair out now. I should be coding but I'm trying to get the apps to work.Any ideas will be used with thanks.Peter
  5. Reporting for Siemens PLC

    Hello, We want to do excel reports on Siemens PLC. We do not want to use historian programs. Do you know another programs?
  6. Hi friends, The scene is like this... I have some 200 energy meters whose readings are continuously logged at 15-min intervals into a logging table. The meter does not have any other value logged. Let's consider these readings as analog tags. However these tag values are continuously increasing to ever larger numbers. Thus we have a problem for display on trends. Customer now requires that the Citect shows usage trends for any meter for a specified period of the past. That is to say, the meter that he wishes to observe is selected - along with a period typically between 2 dates (perhaps also with a sampling period) - and the trend must appear. So in other words, given a single trend object, how do you make values appear for any selected tag on this trend. Perhaps this can be overcome by some genie/super-genie mechanism. My approach to this is...For the selected meter, I use SQL to query the 15 minute logged values (also taking into account the required sampling period) taking the reading on starting date as initial. All values thereafter are subtracted -within the SQL query- and the result of this query is kept in a 2 dimensional array(x for time, Y for value) or a new database table so that the trend displays values starting with zero. This much I can do with Cicode. After this, I need a method to display the values so obtained in a trend object. Essentially this is the same as feeding a trend object with a set of X & Y values that I have in the form of an array or in a database table. I shall greatly appreciate any help to meet the above objective. Thanks for looking in. With best wishes.
  7. 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

  9. 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
  10. 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

  12. Hi All I uploaded an run time application from an Panel View Plus and stored it on my laptop. When using the application manager to restore the runtime onto my pc so that I can edit I got an error that says a newer version of Active X is required. Not sure if my software is to old or if it is my operator system windows 10   Any help is appreciated Thank you

  14. 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
  15. 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?
  16. 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
  17. 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! 
  18. 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. 
  19. 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. 
  20. 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.
  21. Hey guys,   I have worked on the FTView ME platform many of times.  I am now working on a FTView SE (Local Station) application, and I am having trouble connecting an Offline .ACD file to my program so that I can design.   If someone could help me with this it would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks in advance!
  22. 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   
  23. could you tell me how to create internal tags in DIAview and how to dynamically change the colour of any object taken in SCADA
