I am trying to POST API to a meter in Maximo using a socket in a 5069-L320 controller. I am able to successfully create and open the socket. The write and read instructions get the DN bit but I do not see the meter updating in Maximo. I was able POST successfully using Postman, so I know I am sending the correct information. Do I need to be formatting the POST differently? I'm not getting errors so don't have a direction to go from here. (I will fix the obvious username and password vulnerability, one step at a time) Thanks
Hey group! I am working on a project that has a machine that forms cartons that will drop the cartons into a cleated conveyor after they are formed. The forming machine needs to be synchronized with the cleated conveyor so that the formed cartons will drop in between the cleats as they pass under the forming machine. So, in essence, the conveyor will be the master and the forming machine will be a slave to the conveyor and match its position accordingly. Initially, it was proposed that the conveyor utilize a CIP encoder so it could be set up as a motion axis, but the customer declined that option as they didn't care for using CIP encoders (can't really blame them!). So, a slightly cruder proposal of using two 1024 count encoders was proposed, which they accepted. However, your friendly programmer here isn't quite sure how to make that work! I think the basic concept is encoder following but but I can't seem to find anything online that really describes the actual process or logic for this. The RA Sample Code site doesn't seem to have anything on there but maybe I just haven't entered the right search keywords. The forming machine has the following notable components: 5069-L310ER 5069-HSC2xOB4 PowerFlex 525 drive 1024 count incremental encoder As noted, the idea is to have a 1024 count encoder mounted on the conveyor with some sort of ratio so that the counts will run the pitch of the cleats 508 mm). Some trickery will have to worked in to get them to sync at the right time but for the time being, I'm just looking for a method to do the encoder following and asking the group if anyone has some ideas, or better yet, a method, of how to accomplish that.
58 downloadsI'm programming my first project with the 5069 series and the digital input and output points are not available from the modules in a condensed form. In response to the thread "Copy data from/to a 5069 digital module", I'm uploading what I'll be using to condense inputs and outputs into single elements. The file is in v29, enjoy and look forward to seeing any improvements that can be made. Especially in the OB AOIs.

addie1309 posted a topic in Allen Bradley / Rockwell AutomationHas anybody tried communicating Allen Bradley 5069 Compact logix PLC with Red Lion HMI ? I am unable to communicate them in spite of adding AB tags via L5K file which gives me no error. I am able to see all the tags in Crimsion 3.0 software in development mode. However, PLC & HMI are not communicating with each other. I am able to ping to both, using the same program in PLC of which I generated L5K file. I think it may have something to do with the driver as 5069 is a new line of PLC Rockwell come out with only in 2016.
