  1. Switch LAMP latch

    Hello  I'm new with GT Designer 3, I'm writing code for a GOT2107 HMI. I have a few buttons that when you press it, the LED on the switch comes on, and when depressing the switch the LED goes off. That's good, but how do I create a latch, that when the switch is pressed and depressed, the LED will stay on. and only go off after the next press and depress?   The attached image is my working switch button. Regards Marinus    
  2. I have a Modicon NOM0200 unit connected to an access switch to send commands to various rs-232 devices. The Access switch requires a "disconnect string" to end communication with a particular port. The disconnect string is "CRTL+D", how can I send a "CRTL" keystroke from the NOM0200 unit? I know for carriage return it is "$R" is their a similar combination I can enter for "CTRL"?  
  3. Q03UDVCPU

    I am new with PLC's and I am learning how to work with GX Works 2. I have two questions, 1st Question: Using a Q series PLC (Q03UDVCPU) Is it possible to convert the language of a project from ladder logic to structured text? 2nd Question: If I read a project from a PLC why is it always ladder logic? Is there any way to read out structured text?
  4. Ethernet/IP bandwidth

    Hello, A while ago I modernised a magazine gathering / filmwrapping machine. This was a fairly big project for which I used an Omron CJ2M as the main PLC, 10 Wago Ethernet/IP fieldbus couplers, a Keyence CV-X420 vision camera and an Omron NS12 HMI.  All of these components run on the same network which contains an unmanaged switch where the HMI, PLC and the first Wago are connected. The Wago’s act as a two port switch since they are all daisy chained. At the end of the Wago chain there is also the vision cam which is connected at the last Wago coupler. At the time I was advised against using Broadcasting instead of Multicasting with a managed switch, but I tried anyway since my networking knowlege is lacking. Also, the only ‘bandwidth demanding data’ comes from the vision system. The Wago couplers contain only digital I/O and high speed encoder inputs run directly to the CJ2M. I haven’t run into any trouble so far and the machine is already producing for over a year. Now , a new project is on the way and it will need even more Ethernet couplers, 15 to be precise.  This brings me to my question; is there a limit to the number of nodes in an Ethernet/IP network and will I possibly run in to bandwidth problems by adding more remote I/O and not using a mannaged switch? Also, I would like to get high speed input out of one of the Wago couplers. Thanks in advance for any feedback! Greetings from Holland Andy 
  5. Switch Superimposed Window

    Using GS2107, FX5U. I want to change the JPG image on a screen based on if the value in a text box is either 1 or 2, any other value will also have a single default image. Is there a way to do this via script? Or is there a different way?  
  6. Weintek hmi with fx3u128mr

    I have connected weintek 8103ie with fx3u 128m (Mitsubishi). The problem is when I create a toggle switch to hold an input on PLC it doesn't work. But momentary switch works properly. For eg. I want to keep input x1 of PLC on when I press a toggle switch. Also I want to run a coil when I hold a touch input. I can't achieve this in ebpro (IAM new to hmi ) but ok with PLC program.please help
  7. CX-Programmer Comment Language Translation

    I am currently trying to modify preliminary code that was sent to me for a system I am making. The physical system has been modified so the code will need to follow suit. It is programmed using a CJ1M CPU13 Omron PLC using CX programmer (Old PLC I know). When I downloaded the code from the PLC, I realized that the previous programmer was of a french background so all the comments and symbols in the code is in french. This creates a problem for me because it is more difficult to understand what is going on in the program he/she had written. My question is, is there a way to export only the comments and symbol names as a text file so I can run it through a translator to get a better idea what is being explained on the ladder rungs. I realize it wont be 100% accurate but it would be better than what I have now. Any ideas?I are also trying to figure out a way to use the Omron technology to measure the life of a catalytic converter during operation. We want to characterize the degradation of performance so we know when the catalytic element needs to be swapped out for a new one or cleaned. If anyone knows of such a sensor, I would be pleased to know.
  8. Hi, I want to know the meaning  for this writing  (Addressing object): %I\4.0\1.1 %Q\4.0\1.3 if someone just help me for this example. Thanks  
  9. Hi all I am setting up a batch tank system, I have 1 pump which can pump to six different tanks(via pneumatic actuated valves). This is my first go with a HMI, usually I would use a multiple position switch. Is it possible to make a six position selector switch with a HMI? I am using a AB Panel-View 800, has anyone done this before? Any help would be appreciated.
  10. Hi, Can anybody suggest me process to make toggle switch to switch the project language? I would like to make a project in more than one language and customer required language switching button. Thanks.
  11. Hello everyone! I need your help.  I use the PLC: Q06UDEHCPU and the module: QJ71MB91. I programmed in the program GX Works 2 I instaled a library of "QJMB91ModbusSerial_V120 (FB - QJMB91ModbusSerialMaster)" and using it wrote temperature sensor interrogation program. The sensor is interrogated by the channel 2 and has the following switch settings:  Switch 1 - 0000; Switch 2 - 0000; Switch 3 - 0000; Switch 4 - 0A04; Switch 5 - 0000; which are specified by the PLC parameter in GX Works 2. I found an example of writing a program to install the switch settings in the user manual QJ71MB91 using ZP.UINIT instructions. I wrote a program to this exemple. Not prescribed bit address, which should be established when the program is executed (M0) (ZP.UINIT  "U4"  D0  M0). I wrote: ZP.UINIT  "U4"  D0  .  After executing ZP.UINIT instruction PLC stops working, blinking error, settings module is not install. How can I write a program to configure the Switch Setting?
  12. I hope I am posting this in the right location, I did not see any sub forums specific to Rockwell or Factorytalk. We are finally converting from XP to Windows 7! WOO-Hoo! It has gone fairly well but I see one issue that has me concerned and I would like to resolve it now; my application converted fine except my translations did not come across. We have two base applications we build off of that correspond to the type of machine they are used for; both support multiple languages which are selectable with an on screen VBA based button that does a bit and language change in the background. One application supports English and Russian while the other is English and Spanish. I have tried doing the import on Windows 7 in both languages related to the application I am working with and the alternate language (in this case it is Russian) never comes across. I have tried both the direct copy and .apa methods with the conversion and the results are the same. Is there a step I am missing during the conversion process or will I have to export my languages from 6.0 and import them to 8.0 separately after conversion? I am not thrilled about this process as it never seems to keep the proper layout of the text when imported. I assume the issue is the conversion process as I can load the .apa on a fresh XP build and the languages are both present.
  13. Program 16 position rotary selector switch

    I have a 16 position rotary selector switch I'm trying to program to a CQM1 PLC, that I will also be programming to a micrologix 1200 in the future, using CX Programmer. The switch connects to the PLC using 4 inputs, and activates the inputs in a binary pattern 0-16 as I turn the switch. For example: if the switch is wired to the first four inputs of the PLC, and is turned to "9" 0.0 and 0.3 will be activated and 0.1 and 0.2 will not, just like binary 9 = 1001. I have tried several things trying to get the PLC to accept these inputs as a single "data-point," and then convert to BCD or Hex to use in a timer. I'm having no luck! Does anyone have any ideas how this is done? The switch is a Tosoku DPP01 015L20RCB, and because of the age of the PLC my instruction set is limited. Thank you in advance!
  14. Hi Guys,        In my project i am in need of switching language from English to Spanish and vice versa.For all displays,i switched to the needed language according to the working operator.        In alarm history message,If i am in English language mode means,alarm messages also in English and same for Spanish. My issue is alarm messages were not changed to the current language mode.It keep staying in language which were in current mode while it occured. Please find the attachment, NOTE:Example attachment only.  My question is,how can i get the occurred messages in current language? Help me to sort this. Thanks in advance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    
  15. Use to working on DC inputs, now I have a PLC I am playing with and the digital inputs are AC, can I still just wire a on/off switch to complete the circuit just for testing? This is a micrologix 1100.
  16. Hi all, I have a new problem. I have to translate NT631C application from Dutch to English(or Serbian). I uploaded *.mmi language file with translation utility and start translation but now I want to "merge" new mmi file with onw file(application) to see how new language looks like before downloading it to the touch terminal. Is this possible or I have to download new mmi to touch and then upload whole application again? P.S. Touch is on site 100km from my office.
  17. DIY CO2 Controller

    Guys, I find CO2 controllers to be too expansive and ugly at 500 $ How can I Take a CO2 sensing chip read it it's signal compare the signal to equal or above a value turn on an AC plug (Type B) when below value, OFF when above valueBaiscally, I want to make a CO2 controller myself (soldering on board, buy individual components, put in a box) This will release CO2 in the room through a solenoid when below 1200 ppm, and shut off the solenoid when above 1200 ppm IF I'm on the wrong forum, could you advice where to ask ? Thank you ! Dominique
  18. I am aware that I can use a word lamp, set its display address to $SW10, and then on the HMI terminal screen, the image displayed will change depending on the language chosen. BUT when I change the language switch inside CXDesigner, the image shown in the designer area does not change. This is annoying because it means I have to go into "offline test" to check that my translation images (fancy text shown as a bitmap) are correct. Is it possible to make CXDesigner change the image shown, in the designer area, according to the language switch?
  19. I have found the switch (in the label tab of an objects properties) that allows you to store 2 or more different languages within the label of a button. Now I want another button, within the HMI, to set this switch to a particular language. How do I do this?
