  1. i just got my NX1p2-1140DT controller with a R88D-KN04-ECT. i conneted every thing and directy got the 87 message on the display. i found out dat is becous wrong wiring I dont have the I/o cable incallt with omron they where saying that i don't need it and i can controll the motor controller full via ethercat. i already try to change to pdo mapping. what am i doing wrong? can someone help me? is it indeed true i dont need the i/o cable  thanks in advance for helping.
  2. Good morning Today I have the honor to present you our project, on which we have worked the last months. We have been annoyed for years that when creating software in special machine building, sometimes the same/similar messages are created over and over again and then they are described similarly or the same in the machine documentation. The thought, if the mechanical components are mostly the same/similar, the error description can also be "copied" (at least initially). An Excel table with the error numbers seemed to us here a good beginning, however it would be practical, if with each message text also still the description to the message in a document, including pictures, tables etc., were deposited. This was then the point where we first thought about an online tool. This also solves problems with collaboration and makes it possible to work together. Also additional languages can be added if a machine is to be rolled out to a new market. PLC-Alarm is a young Austrian startup founded by PLC programmers to ease the handling with machine messages and their descriptions. Therefore we tried to solve the following problems besides the creation of an error list: Working together on message lists Hierarchical creation of message lists Inheritance of message texts and message descriptions to lower-level projects Adding additional message lists to make message texts more variable. Adding a description to any message text in any language via Google Docs. (Connection to Microsoft Word-online is in progress) Document template for uniform presentation Combining all message descriptions into one machine document file. Highlighting used messages to avoid having unused message text in the message list. And to shorten the machine document file. Upload a file containing the used message numbers to mark them automatically. Any export options for PLC, SCADA and HMI systems possible. (Currently optimized for TIA Portal only). Suggestions for additional features welcome As mentioned in the last point, currently only exporting for a TIA Portal text list is possible since the first customers are also programming on Siemens. But we are looking forward to extend this according to customer requirements. Do not hesitate contact us via e-mail. We invite you to test our free web applications and leave your feedback. The application is already successfully in use at the first customer and we are looking forward to more users.

  3. serial input string

    Hi  I'm quite new to plc but very new to mitsubishi.   I have an input string eg G+002.7 which represents a weight. I wish to take in the input string then move/convert to int omitting first char,   On other plc's i have been able to use a modifier like d200[2] then the no of chars. How do i achieve this in gx works3   Any feedback gratefully recieved   Paul  
  4. Hi,I want to read transducer signal on PLC.I am using 7kg60008ab/nn transducer and it's analog (4-20mA) output is connected with analog meter.Can I connect the transducer current output (4-20mA) signal to PLC analog input in series with analog meter display???So that I can read the value on PLC simultaneously with analog meter?
  5. Output polarity selection

    Hello to everyone. Nice to meet you all. How are you? I hope you are doing well. I’m developing a program with the purpose of make something similar to a pulse train in the output. However, sometimes I need the output to be a “positive” pulse and sometimes a “negative” one. By positive and negative I mean the polarity in relation to the pulse train source. I’m trying to use a pair of bits in order to switch between the two choices of polarities. I attach a simplified version of the ladder diagram I’ve made. When I thought about the logic, it seemed logical to me, however, it isn’t working as supposed. SM0.4 is a pulse train source. According to the software manual, it is a pulse train with 50% duty cycle and a cycle time of 2 s. That it to say it says at TRUE for one second and return to FALSE for another second. I assign the value of that variable bit to the M0.0 memory bit. I get the negative version of the pulse train logically negating it in the Network #2.                 I assign the value of two inputs, I0.0 and I0.1, to other two memory bits, M0.1 and M0.2. ·         When both inputs are in a FALSE state, the output stays FALSE, disregarding the state of SM0.4. (Case #1) ·         When I0.0 is TRUE, M0.1 is TRUE. However, Q0.0 stays at FALSE no matter SM0.4 is TRUE or FALSE. I attach a pair of pictures. (Case #2) ·         On the other side, when I0.1 is TRUE, M0.2 is TRUE. In this case, the output shows the correct behavior. It is the negated version of the pulse train source. (Case #3)                 Has any of you experienced something similar? Is there a better way to execute my purpose?                 I’m not executing the program, just simulating it with KincoBuilder from Kinco. However, it has always worked fine for me. Thanks for you attention. I look forward for your responses. Kind regards!

  9. Good morning experts, i have a little problem with a Alarm display (user) and i hope with your huge experience you will may help me. Thank you very much in advance  Let me explain best. I would like use a slider to control a Alarm display (user), i tried to do it, but the slider doesn't scroll up/ scroll down like i will want. It doesn't scrolling through the pages and it heighlights just some alarm. Could you give me a bit advice, please? 
  10. unit of time in D8284

    Hello PLCmaniaccccssss, What is the unit of time in 'average time for the channel -1' (D8284) while programming for analog inputs? I have moved k10 to D8284 in my program in gxworks 2, does that mean the time average will be taken for 1Sec or 10msec or any other time unit??? I require this to eliminate the flickering of the input from the load cell transmitter. Thanks and God bless!!!
  11. Hello all,  I have a temperature sensor with a reading range of 10F to 212 . The input card I am using is an Allen Bradley 1734 IE8C 8 Channel Analog current input. The current input values are 4-20 mA. Currently I have my raw low at 4000 and raw high at 20000. Can anyone explain how do we go about selection of this values ? I found these values in the configuration tag of the input card properties.  Thank You 
  12. Hello guys, how many (maximum) analog inputs/outputs can CPU 1215C can reach without any issue?   I try to search in google but can't find convincing answer.  Thanks for your help.

    I have E-Designer 7.52 Build 344 installed on 3 windows 7 laptops the 2 that the problem is on are Pro 64 and the 1 thats working is Home Premium 64 but I seem to recall having this problem on the the Home one 9 years ago and getting it sorted but cant remember how The problem In Alarms,  Alarms New Alarm Alarm text: When typing cursor stays at left side and can only be moved to the right by the arrow key then jumps to left side after letter is pressed or you can type in reverse Signal:        Typing works normal OK:             Entry is not valid ;May not be blank Copy: Ok: Same result Properties:Ok:Same again Is there anyone who can help me with this as the laptop that works is on its last legs Thanks  
  14. I currently have a Rosemount 87 series flow meter connected to a 1756-IF8H analog input module.. We are not receiving flow from the device, and the channel is showing a diagnostic code of 009... I can not find a diagnostic code list anywhere explaining what this means, has anyone had any experience with the diagnostic codes for HART Devices?
  15. Q68ADG - Abnormal Analog Input

    Hi guys, So I found that CH2 on Q68ADG is abnormal. Whenever I short the termination, the digital value goes max to 4096. Input is set to 4-20mA with normal resolution. I tried to simulate 4mA-20mA but still same result. Does this mean the CH2 is damaged? Equipment at site is normal and give 5mA signal. Thanks!
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.

    Hey i want to know that in mitsubishi A2SH-S1 CPU how can i determine that battery voltage is what and if battery voltage is low then i want to on an output so that i can change the battery with the new one so that my program does not gets erased. 
  20. This is a 1756-IF8 rev 1.5 Analog Input module. This has happened a couple times where the Module Input Data, (not mapped), goes to the high limit and freezes (Data Monitor data is static).  Plant operators pointed out the trending wasn't accurate. There is no fault on the module, no yellow triangle on the system tree for the module.  The Module properties show no faults, and RUNNING. I have done a "Reset Module" both times, (Module Properties - Module Info tab), while monitoring the module data.  As soon as it resets, instantly the Data Monitor starts showing live data. I'm going to try and replace the module at first, but I have some concerns. Has anyone run into this before? I can't seem to find any information on the "Reset Module" animation, and what it actually does.  Any information, (or where to look), would be appreciated. I don't like to hot swap, but I believe I will need to in this case, (utility).  Will the current properties, e.g. scaling transfer to the new module? Thanks Dave Redman

  22. 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?  
  23. Hello, I am new to Scada Programming. I am using Citect scada V7.50. I have completed whole project, but I am unable to generate Excel report for Alarms generated during run time. Please help me for this issue. Thanks...
  24. I have an 8 point analog input card on a rack with a SLC 5/04 CPU.  It has been in operation for 20 years or so.  There have been some power problems at site lately and ever since they fixed them I have been having issues with 3 of the 4-20mA circuits on this card showing open circuit.  I have had my meter on them when they show open circuit.  The signal reads 3.96mA, just below the 4mA minimum and boom, the machine goes down.  Is there a way to adjust this tolerance??  I don't think there is anything wrong with the 3 transmitters so the error is just a nuisance.
  25. Hey there forum guru's!!! I am trying to read through the manuals for an NX-HAD401 High Speed Analog Input Card.  It is not very clear as to where you assign your variable in order to grab a channels analog input value.  Can you point me in the right direction? I am thinking it is in the "Analog Input Values 1 to 10" and if so why is it set up as an array?  Is it because it takes the average of the samplings and uses the result as the channels input value? I am sure I will have more questions but this may clear up a few.
