  1. Hi gents, I need to build up a communication between nx1p2 to another omron plc (any type with sql support). This is due to the fact that I have finaly to prepare the plc communication with the sql database, and nx1p2 doesnt support this.  Sorry, i know it's probably a noob question, but I'm a beginner. What type of technology i shoud use to make this connection between NX1P2 and another Omron PLC? Or might be some share some project?

  3. Hey guys,   I know this is a topic that has been discussed before, but I am having trouble finding exactly what I am looking for.. I want to know the most efficient way to record data from my PLC to an Excel file on my PC. I want this to be done without the use of the PLC's webserver.  Specifically I am trying to record vfd speed every 10seconds with a time and date stamp. How can I do this?   Thanks, James  
  4. Hi, I have inserted new RTD module into in my SLC500 as replacement to defected RTD module however the module LED is enabled but the channel LED's are blinking. I have checked the following: In the advanced I/O configuration the module configuration is shown as expected In the data file word format it is not corresponding to the channel preferences What should I do and how to fix the word bits?        
  5. Open data log in HMI

    Hi there! I have S7-1200 controller connected to a Comfort Panel. The machine has some pressure and temp sensors, as long as many valves and other stuff. I generate a daily datalog with some of those variables but, the thing is, I've been trying to figure out how to show these data in the HMI without using a trend viewer. I don't know if it's possible, but I want to be able to see what valves were open (for example) the day DD/MM/YYYY at HH:MM:SS, using the generated data log, kind of knowing the state of single bits at different past moments. I've been searching the web but I didn't find something exactly like this, don't know if I'm doing it properly so I'd like to know if you have done this or you can throw some light on the topic. Thanks in advance and hope you can help me!
  6. Hi, guys.I am struggling to develop a solution for a costumer in a Historical Alarm Viewer screen, I am new to Cimplicity and to database supervisory interface. Among other things, the customer is asking to:- Change the "A"; "R"; "G"; "N" notations under "log_action" column to somenthing more intuitive for the users (operation). Please have a look at the image "image.jpg";-Change the point manager process "MASTER_PTMR0_RP" log under "logged_by" column to the user that is currently logged in. Specificaly saying, when I send a command (changing a setpoint or issue a reset command, for example), although it is the user acting, the historical alarm viewer logs the action as "MASTER_PTMR_RP". I Imagine that is because this process is reponsable for exchange point data to/from the IHM points database, but it is still essential to the system administrator to know which user sent that reset command or changed the variable setpoint.The log inputs at the image "image.jpg" has boolean and integer commands (".CXX" sufix);-Log into the historical alarm viewer if the user logs out and what user logged in.It is valid to mention that I am using the ALARM_LOG table (apparently it is the only table working with the application, DATA_LOG, EM_LOG and the others simply do not work, they don't show any column at all, honestly I don't know why).I tried to use Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio to edit the table information, but, somehow, it seems to be blocked to edition.I imagine they are some specific configurations, but I have no idea on how to acomplish them. Maybe if I could use other tables would fulfill the requirements, but , like I said, they are not working (right now I am trying to re-configure the Database Logger from the beggingin to see if it works with other tables).If you could give me some inisights on how to change these settings I would be very grateful. I will be happy to give more information if needed.Thanks in advance.
  7. Have been able to exchange data types of BOOL, INT,  DINT & REAL between Omron NJ/NX CPU with Allen Bradley Logix CPU's with Ethernet/IP using the CIPUCMMRead & CIPUCMMWrite instructions. I now have a need to exchange "STRING" variable types. Have tried varions string lengths in the NJ without sucsess. AB default string length is 82 & Omron 256 but I think the difference is the length headder that AB has with within their String Tag type. I know I could convert my strings to an array of bytes & sent them this way, but was looking for a solution to sent them as native strings. Hope someone out there has done this & can share their leg work? 
  8. Has anyone found a way to put the UserAlarmViewer messages into a Label? I use 3 different alarm levels and would like to have a single line alarm banner. In NJ, I use an Array of Bool for triggers. In Siemens, I made a message banner that cycles through each message every 3 seconds from a text file and displays the string in a label. Logic is much different in Omron so rewriting is not possible, nor does Omron use VBA.
  9. Hi all, I am using alarms to generate reports through sql . But sometimes my alarms are getting missed and due to that my reports are not getting proper expected output. My alarm bit is almost high for 3 to 6 seconds , however i have observed that its getting missed . I dont know why . In below image after @22.41.03 the next snap should have been captured around @22.41.33 Instead of that it captured @22.42.03 have anyone faced issue with alarm missing issue? Any suggestions would be very helpful.   Thank you.

  11. Hi I'm trying to set up Modbus RTU communication between FX3U PLC and a weigh module. I would use the ADPRW command using 0X03 to read the 16 bit Holding Register but in the weigh module the Data Address/Holding Register of the value I want to get is 400047 - 400048. How to translate the value in 16 bit?   Thanks, Fabio
  12. Hello all, I need to read device memory mostly I need to read R registers from PLC L26. I read device data, but inside of table, I can't find R or ZR registers. Can you help me?  What I did wrong?   BR KS  
  13. Hello Sirs! I have a problem with PF527. I get alarms 'control sync alarm' and 'module sync alarm' occasionally. I suppose this meaning that PLC is missing some data from the PF527 device. How to confirm this or what should I do with the problem? Any ideas? Motion group update period is 8ms. Also this device is the last device in the ethernet line. I am thinking to pull the cable directly to the switch near PLC. I am not sure does it help?

  15. NB Data log

    Hi there!  I need to implement a data logging that saves the log in a USB storage for a machine and just started searching for some info about data logging in NB HMIs. Up to now I'm clear about using the Data History function and the sampling method I'll be using but I still have some unclarified doubts about this. 1.- The data log should sample the value of, let's say, a couple of words, each second for an entire day (6:00 am to 6:00 am). NB's manual doesn't say a lot about Storage Type and Buffer Storage in "Save Data History" tab. Does "daily file" mean It deletes the .CSV file daily and it generates a new one? If is it, at what time does this occur? Does "single file" mean it generates a file and won't get deleted? Does this mean the sampling stops when completing the first one? Is "storage period" used to keep the file after the next log begins? 2.- Is it necessary to display the element in order to make the log work? Or can it be placed in a random screen you only enter once a day? 3.- In the "Channel Properties" tab. If I need to get the binary value of a word, do I need to set the max. limit to 65535? 4.- I asume that "Sample points" value doesn't matter when selecting Continue sample mode. Am I right? Thanks in advance, any help is appreciated.  
  16. Data Logging with GT Designer3

    Hello, I am trying to log data using GT Designer 3 and I'm having no luck. I found some sort of online documentation and even going through the myriad of steps still find my self unable to log anything. I am using the melsoft project navigator and GX Works 2 to simulate the logging of just one 16 bit signed word with a constant value. As logging data is clearly not as simple as just specifying D100 or D200 as the devices you want to log, I am hoping someone else on here has some experience on this matter and can help me out.  Thanks for any help in advance.
  17. Dear Friends, I have made this video to show you how to take data samples from Delta DVP PLC and save this log file in the Weintek HMI internal memory. The Weintek HMI internal memory is easily accessible using ftp. All the necessary steps are mentioned in the video. The link of the video is given below,    
  18. Hi all, I am currently having a project of polling data from PLC CJ1M using Advantech ECU-1051 IoT gateway which support rs-232 serial connection (Host Link) to poll data from the PLC for data acquisition and monitoring, I would like to use peripheral port since rs-232c port is used for HMI. However, I am currently stuck at make the connection between those two devices. I did setup same transmission configuration between them (baudrate, Unit number, start/stop bits,...). Is there any configuration that I have missed to make the communication works?  
  19. Good day everyone, before I start asking my question, just want to let you all know that my knowledge with PLC is not that good. I'm still learning on how to do it. So currently I'm working on a project that trying to obtain data from Omron PLC. I was told that I can't touch the Omron PLC program or modify it. That Omron PLC is connected in an isolated network within a router. Other than adding Network Card on the device, can I use another PLC (any brands) to get the data from that Omron PLC through the router? The communication protocol using here is Ethernet. Can i just tapped into the network and take the data with that way? Or the other method I'm thinking is that, the Omron PLC will feed the data to a server, can I just obtain that data from server by using OPCUA? I heard there's some PLC that have the OPCUA function, I just make my PLC into the cilent and request the data of that Omron PLC from server through Ethernet. Is this possible? Please let me know whether my method works or not, thanks in advance guys!
  20. I'm editing an old program for a customer that has a zillion user-defined data types. Scrolling through the list trying to find a specific type definition is taking way too long. Is there and easy way to find a specific data type definition? It would help if I knew how to collapse the view so I don't have to scroll through each member of every type. There doesn't seem to be any right-click menu items that would collapse the view.
  21. 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?
  22. Hi! I would like to ask how could I send data from PC to CJ1M PLC, by SCU-41 module and RS232 cable, in order to activate an actuator (LED)? In my environment, I have a sensor that sends data from PLC to PC (I'm checking data, "HelloWrld" with Putty), with this configuration: And I have another section where I want to read the data from the PC in ordr to activate a LED I would like when I send for example a letter 'a' trough Putty, the LED activates. How could I do that? Thank you very much!
  23. Hello, I'm using RSLogix 500 application for LAD programming. I would like to convert the float data type to integer data type and vice versa. I tried with the COP instruction as some had mentioned in other forums, but it was not working. So any suggestions on solving that issue would be helpful.

  25. I'm working on simple structured text program which takes in DWORD values, does some math on them and then outputs in DWORD type. What data type should I be using and how can I make this work?  This is one of the lines from the code(everything DWORD) and I get 'operator not supported by DWORD data type' XPos3 := XPos1 + (2*XIncrement);
