  1. servo auto tuning

    Hello Guys! I have couple of questions about tuning an ab servo motor. -Actually what does the drive or plc doing when I launch a servo auto tuning?  - What are the little boxes like position error integrator ? There are checkmarks in fornt of the lines. Can I choose the methode or something? I mean its not "auto" ? Why it is auto then ? - Can someone send me some basic literature where they explain me what these stuff acutally meaning ?  - What is the hook up test what for is good ?  -When you are doing a servo auto tune what are the parameters that you are monitoring and why ?  -I should do the auto without or with load ? Whats the difference ? I know there are so many question I would be so grateful if someone could help me with these answears, or even just with one. Thanks again. 
  2. Data Types for MAM instruction

    I have inherited a program to work on using MAM motion commands on a CompactLogix 5370 processor. The MAM variables for some parameters state that REAL data type is required. However in looking at the the code those REAL variables are actually declared as DINT. Is this OK. Does Logix somehow accept DINT for these parameters even though REAL is specified. So if parameter is 5600 DINT it somehow interprets this as 5600.00 REAL. Confused!
  3. Hello! I am using the Plant PAX AOI L_CPU_24_Up and am having zero luck finding out both independently and from tech support what the 16 bits of the Ref_Out.Identity.Status are. The description says Tag to receive CPU data, device status (bitmapped, see documentation).  I have a techconnect contract, but cant find the correct documentation where this information lives.  Could someone please send me a link or just give me the number of the publication.  I attached a screen shot of tag info I am looking for. Thank you!!!!    
  4. Kinetix 6000; RSlogix 5000

    Hi guys!  I have several questions connected to kinetix 6000 servo amplifiers. I have a system with AB plc and AB kinetix servo drive. The communication is sercos. Earlier I was worked drives with ethernet communication. I think its better, I could monitor the parmeters durnig as its works. But with the sercos communication I am no longer to be able to do it. One of my question is that like it is possible to check the parameters somehow. I have some problem myabe with the overcurrent recently. But for now I even cant see what is the limit. Is it possible to find it somewhere ?   Also when Im watching the parameters in the RSlogix 5000 which is belongs to the servo drive. I can see a row like (servoname)axis fault code and (servoname) axis code. Is there any table where I can see which number belongs to which fault or status?  If anyone can help me I just appreciate ahead. Thanks Guys.            
  5. AB Studio 5000 Lite

    I put together a system a couple of years ago with a L306ERM with I-O, PanelView, etc and I was sold Studio 5000 Lite to program it. It worked out ok on that project but now I have a project that I need to use a Powerflex 525 VFD and the software won't let me add the Powerflex. I've tried several different PFs and none can be added. It crashes at the Create button and puts out the wonderfully descriptive message of "Unknown Error" Email AB support. As of 4-1-21, AB doesn't take emails for Powerflex drives. Anyone know if the Lite version of Studio 5000 will work with a Powerflex 525?Thanks you for looking.
  6. Hello All, I am new to Studio 5000. I am trying to have my limit sensors energize my stop output, and also have a manual bit that I can toggle that will energize the stop output as well. Currently, toggling my manual bit works for energizing the stop output, but my limit sensors turning on does not energize my stop output. Not getting what I want with or without the ONS. What is going on??? Thanks, Daniel
  7. Hello! I have a plc program where I need to start and finish an MAM instruction based on a set amount of time. I am trying to calculate the speed of the motor based on the time but when I do, its always off by some milliseconds which I cannot have. I thought this was due to not considering acceleration time but changing acceleration does not change how long it takes the instruction to complete. Is there a more reliable way to perform this? Currently I have my speed units set to seconds which I thought would work (and did improve it slightly) but there is still a slight offset in time. If there is no reliable way to do this, is there a reliable way to predict what the offset in time may be? or what is even causing the offset? thank you in advance. Edit: Or should using seconds work fine, and its more likely something else in my program?
  8. VM With Studio 5000, FTVSE, Emulate 5000

    Ok, so I was tasked with setting up a virtual for our development team to be able to use to quickly deploy projects hmi, emulated plc, and studio 5000 project together on one virtual.  The main reason for this is when we get a project, many times we have to wait for an available plc.  We have plc’s in our rack but they can’t be used because they are being used for other projects.  I’ve used the compatibility matrix that Rockwell has but my boss wants to stick with Windows 10 Professional like we do in most our projects but according to the matrix, it looks like having FactoryTalk View SE Enterprise version 10, Studio 5000 Logix version 33 and Studio 5000 Logix Emulate version 33, FactoryTalk Gateway 6.11 and RSLinx 4.11 (mainly for communication to the emulated plc) but in the matrix says Windows 7 and Windows Server 2012  is the best choice.  I’ve ran into issues with Emulate opening, it takes up to 20 minutes to open.  Our licenses are on a server and accessed using FactoryTalk Activation Manager and all the activations are there.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  9. This is my first post so let me know if there is anything wrong with my post. I am learning Studio 5000 right now for an internship and created a simple project involving a pushbutton and some LEDs. Now I am trying to create an HMI for it in View Designer. My problem now is that I cannot establish a connection to the project because I do not have a physical HMI connected to my plc (Logix 5380). I can't find any way to emulate an HMI module so that I can get it to run. When I emulate my HMI project it tells me "Unable to reach controller TEST" where test is the name of my plc program. I added a module that matched the model in my HMI program (panelview 5510 2715p-t7wd) which I arbitrarily picked at random. But when I go into references and try to add HMI to Controller Path it does not show up (I'm assuming it's because it is faulting in the plc program since it doesn't actually exist). Is there not a way to emulate an HMI or add a virtual HMI to my studio 5000 program that I could connect to from View Designer?
  10. Hello Folks... The pictures show it all... I just need to produce a one-shot inside the IF...THEN, and the Oneshot's input bit goes from 0 to 1 as you see from the trend, but the output bit is not going to 1, or giving a pulse ? can anyone help me understand why i am not getting a pulse in this code ? And is there another easy way to get pulse inside IF...THEN without changing the condition which activates the if loop ? Thanks in advance for your time
  11. I have a Base tag of BOOL logic that will not activate the MOV output.  The Base tag is paralleled with an Alias tag for a NO pushbutton.  When the pushbutton is actuated it produces the desired output.  Has anyone encountered this issue from a togglebit base tag before?  Why would a base tag produce a different outcome from that of an alias tag that function properly?
  12. Axis Attribute Error

    Hello All, First time working with PLC. Get the hang of it from stuff I researched. Having an issue with an axis setup for a servo motor.  When I try to do an auto tune it gives me an error that axis is not configured.  Source: Config Fault    Condition: MotorDeviceCode- INvalid attribute      ACtion: Immediate Stop Fault Entry: Type 8, code 9 subcode: 1314 stopaction: 4 Statechange: 3   I was wondering what am I doing wrong? Any leads or source information I can use to solve this. 
  13. Can anyone explain to me what this would mean in a COP instruction? Source: #N[N187:4]:[N187:5] Dest: #N[N187:1]:0 Length: 20 I am doing a PLC5 conversion to rslogix5000 and some (most) of it has been a nightmare -.-
  14. Hi, I'm fairly new to motion applications and I have an interesting (to me) problem to solve. I'm using Kinetix 5700 with MPL motors to drive a pick&place carousel and a conveyor belt. I have a virtual master that driver the carousel in 1:10 ratio. The virtual master also drives the conveyor belt, the ratio is given by the carousel diameter and the conveyor driving cylinder diameter +  2x the belt thickness. And I'm using MAJ to drive the master and the MAG instruction to drive the carousel and the conveyor. This all works well. BUT: the carousel does not pick the product in the same place every time. That creates irregular gaps, or pitch, between the product on the conveyor which causes some issues down the line. Is there a way how to superimpose a value to the conveyor axis to ensure the pitch is regular at all times. Something like the ADDAX instruction it Trio motion controller for example? I'd want to have a sensor that detects the edge of the product and compares he encoder value to an expected value and slows downs or speeds up the conveyor accordingly. Thanks a milion.
  15. Incrementing Counter Error

    I have a counter tracking the number of cases packed through a robot program and an option to count less than a case (pack now). In order to update the correct number, I'm using math (ADD) to increment the counter by one.  I used that in conjunction with a MOV instruction to increment up the counter by one.  However, when I energize the button, my accumulated value goes up by +220 or so. Any way to fix this?
  16. AVE instruction Error

    A little background information here, I am trying to create a moving average so I accomplished it with the code (imaged attached) The problem i am having is the AVE instruction error bit goes true. it leaved me with a result of 1.#QAN  I did some googling and it said this is typically done when dividing by zero?? so i added a NEQ to 0 prior to loading the array. then it happened again. so i put the error bit in front of the FFL so it will stop loading the array when i get the error bit so i can see what values are in the array when it errors out. Has anyone else had this issue and what could you do to resolve it? I haven't had any luck find something that points me in the right direction. Thanks in advance for your help.
  17. Hello there, I am using a Kinetix 5700 drives to control bunch of axis. HW used : 5069-L320ERMS2 GurdsLogix, 2198-S086-ERS4 Servo Drive with MPM-B2152M-M motor and the 843ES-SIP12BA6 safety encoder. All is working fine except I can't figure out how to dynamically change an axis velocity  controlled by a MAG instruction. I have a virtual master axis controlling the velocity and each physical axis is controlled by a MAG instruction with a gear ratio. In my safety program I have SFX and SLS function block used to determine the safe speed limit. The  SLSLimit output of the SLS function block is linked to a SS1 Request of my servo drive. This causes the axis to stop when safe speed limit acceded.  What I'd like to be able to do is to dynamically change velocity (limit it to safe speed if SLS instruction is active) of each axis without having to change the gearing ratios and thus avoid the SS1 safe stop action.  I know how to do that using JOG or MOVE but is it even possible to do that using the MAG instruction? Regards Martin
  18. Hi all, I've ran into an unusual situation where I could use some suggestions.  I have an AB PLC working in the field, and an existing fixture that needs to be transferred from an Omron PLC into our AB.  I have an integrator who did some offline development with a welder that uses Anybus communication.  He sent a .ACD file to implement the logic from.  The file has an Ethernet module configured but more importantly, it's showing EDS not registered.  I've asked for the EDS he used, and none of them work when trying to register it via right-click and register.  I can export the module, but it won't import into the current PLC program because there's no EDS (shows EDS error after the import).  If I try to take the program that was sent to me online with the PLC, it will automatically upload and overwrite the build.  I can't even open the properties of the module to see what the integrator did. The end goal is to have the offline developed module implemented into the current program, but it seems like everything I've tried to do has me against a wall.  Is there a way to go online without uploading?  Maybe there's a way to implement this I haven't learned yet?  Any suggestions would be much appreciated, and if more information is needed, I'll be glad to provide it.

  19. Can I download an old program (written with RS Logix 500 version 5.2) into a newer SLC 5/04 Series C with a higher FRN than my copy of RS Logix supports? I don't want to use any newer functionality. Just wanting to get a spare 5/04 and load the application software on so it is ready to swap out in the event of a failure. I see some 5/04's on eBay that are new in box but have a FRN of 11 which wasn't out at the time my version of RSLogix was created.  
  20. I am using Studio 5000 View Designer v4.3 to create an HMI on Panel View.  I'm having a weird issue where every time I open up my project, the windows are displaying only in the lower right hand corner.  This wasn't happening earlier.  Undocking the window, expanding the window, uninstalling and re-installing View Designer have not helped.  Trying to open View Designer as an administrator has not helped either.  I know there are better HMI platforms, but I am basically complete with the construction of this HMI using Studio 5000 View Designer and now it is too late.  I just want to add a few more buttons and I can't do it because I can't see the bottom of any of my windows.  Since Studio 5000 View Designer is based in Visual Studio, maybe someone would know how I can fix this via Windows registry files?

  22. Hi all. How to replace an Ethernet ip communications module(1756 en2t) with a new one if the old one stops working. What should be done to configure the new module in rx logix? Should I set the IP address? Or is it plug and play? Thanks in advance.
  23. Hi, All!  I am very new to PLCs and I am currently writing ladder logic for an Allen bradley MLX1200.  I have a number of inputs which i have addressed in the format: I:1.0/1 etc. which should equate to I:Slot.Word/Terminal. I have checked the SLC 500 Instruction Set document which has informed me that this format should be structured correctly however I still receive the error message "ERROR: Address must be specified to the word level!"  Can anyone see where I am going wrong?  For reference Slot 1 is a 4-Channel Thermocouple Input Module (1762-IT4).  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks C
