  1. Hello, I'm using View Designer 7.01 and experience anomalies in project explorer. When I move mouse cursor over project explorer, highlighted lines render with anomalies. I have tried to create new project with different HMI and  and versions, but it didn't help. (picture in attachment) Anybody experience this problem before? Thanks in advance! Scotty
  2. PanelView Plus 700 backup

    Hi dear friends, what do i need i order to make a backup from a panelviwe plus 700 and upload it to another? the HMI is communicating to a SCL 5-05  by ethernet by the way. hope you can guide trough this best regards
  3. 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?
  4. Is there a way to clear a CPU fault on power up without having to connect to software?
  5. Create TCP/UDP Socket

    I'm trying to send an int over TCP using a MSG Socket,  Compactlogix ==> Arduino Ethernet Shield I have set up TCP communication between two Arduino Uno's using Ethernet shield. I've set up the one as a server, the other as a client. server IP: 192.168.1.21 port 23. If the client is connected it reads incoming data as a byte or an array of bytes. The data between the two has been verified to work. I'm now trying to transition the communications between a compact logix-L32E. I'm looking to send a byte (or int being as there's no byte data type) from the Compactlogix to the Arduino using TCP. To my understanding I need to use a socket create, open, read/write, close. The manual to do this is vague as a step by step procedure. Does anyone have an example code for socket programming? I can open rs500, rs5000, and studio 5000 programs. If I can open a file to use as a reference I can translate it on my own. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. 
  6. Pneumatic Air

    Short backstory: We have a machine programmed with AB that has several banks of air solenoids.  This is an older machine so the solenoid banks are of the older variety.  On each bank there is a pressure switch that is outputted into a Allen Bradley 1734 Safety RIO module.  We are adding new modules to this machine after about 10 years and the Mec Eng. chose Festo CPX banks, but they did not put pressure switches on them. Question: Is it a requirement (OSHA, OMAC, ISO...etc. any of them really) to have a pressure switch for air module?  Or are they used to just make the machine smarter?  The big concern that I have is that the customer will notice that these new CPX's don't have pressure switches to monitor the status of the air like every other bank on the machine, then questions will be asked...yatta yatta...
  7. MDS instruction would not complete

    Hany any you of guys dealt with MDS instruction not completing and being stuck on .EN bit but the motor itself just stopped running out of nowhere? I did read the tech note on this on Rockwell's website. Am mostly wondering if any of you have dealt with this and what you did to fix this.
  8. Powerflex 525 single phase

    Hi ! I have a powerflex 525 inverter. I have three phase motor. It is possible to make running the motor like this? If yes how ? Should I change some parameter in the inverter ? Thanks in advance. 
  9. Good day all. I have an application which is running an Allen-Bradley SMC-Flex and the client would like to get the monitor the current of the soft-starter via an HMI connected to a Delta DVP-12SE. Is the SMC able to output a current and with what communications medium would I use?   Thanks.
  10. Good day, We are running FactoryTalk View SE (Network Distributed) version 7.00 (CPR 9 SR 6). We have 5 machines: Engineering Station, HMI/Data Server A, HMI/Data Server B, Operator station A and B. The FT Directory is located on Server A. Server A is Primary and Server B secondary. I made some changes to one of the HMI Display's and added a HMI Tag with an alarm.  Tested the changes, everything worked as predicted. I then checked the status of the RSLinx, HMI and Data servers using FT Administration Console, everything was running with full redundancy. I then selected Replicate to Secondary, the replication was successful and Server B rebooted. After Server B finished rebooting, I check the status again. I found that the RSLinx and Data servers started up and was again fully redundant but the HMI Server showed that Server A was active and Server B was Ready to provide service, left it for about 10 minutes but it never changed to Standby.  I rebooted Server B again to see if it will help but it did not. I then stopped the services on Server B, deleted the HMI Project, restored the project from a backup of Server A, but still had the same issue. I am suspecting that there might be an issue on server A because if I open FT View Studio on the engineering station, I get an error stating: Unable to open HMI Server. I have checked all network connections and everything looks fine. Is there someone that may be able to assist me? 
  11. Constant Web Tension Control

    So I'm having trouble writing a FBD within my current program for a slitting line. I need to keep a constant tension on my web as it is being recoiled onto our recoiler. I wrote a simple program using a sensor to read the growing rate of the coil to get a radius and I have feedback on my torque on the recoiler motor. The simplest math for this application without getting into anything too fancy should be Tension(lbs)= Torque(ftlbs)/coil radius. only problem is when its less than a foot then my calculation is thrown off and it actually shows tension goes up until it reaches the one foot mark then it seems to scale correctly. Do I need to scale something else? Any help on this would be appreciated.

  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. 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.
  15. PVRIO

    Hello,  I am trying to migrate a PanelView plus program that uses RIO communications to run on PanelView plus 7 terminal. Using Factory Talk View Studio ME, I restored the runtime file and changed the terminal type and size as needed. My intentions are to make some sort of table to list all of the PVRIO tags, and find the corresponding tags in  the program running inside of a 1756-L71 V30. I would then use the find and replace Tool until I changed all of the tags in the PanelView program to point directly to the corresponding tags in the control logix program. My plan is then to delete the RIO communication shortcut in the PanelView, and get rid of the lines of logic that handled the block transfer reads and writes. My question is this, is this as easy as the plan that I laid out or am I missing something?  The Control logix program was converted from a PLC 5 program a few years ago, and I suddenly have time on my hands to try to get this obsolete terminal changed out. Any advice would be appreciated. I hope each one of you are well and stay that way, or have a speedy recovery if not.  Thanks,  geetee      
  16. 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
  17. Hi  I have a MSG instruction which checks the status of the DLR network which I have attached as an Image below Message Type - CIP Generic Class 47 ,Attribute 0,Instance 1,The destination element is a SINT[57] called Services_DLR My question is, how do I interpret the results.  For example Services_DLR[1] is the network status, but I have seen a value of 0 when the ring is okay but I have also seen values of 1 and 4 and don't know what they mean. I assume 1 means ring fault but I do not know what 4 means etc. or  The last active IP goes to Services_DLR[17] but I would not of known this, only the code was wrote by someone else. (Image attached) On page 189 of https://literature.rockwellautomation.com/idc/groups/literature/documents/um/20comm-um015_-en-p.pdf I can see the DLR object but I dont know how this populates my SINT array or what each element is for so if someone could explain or point me to some documentation that can explain it to me, i would greatly appreciate it   Hope I made myself clear, I am new to PLC programming so just looking for some guidance   
  18. I can´t open softlogix 5800

    Hi, I have this problem, when I try to open SoftLogix Chassis Monitor I see this picture, if someone could help me please.    
  19. Hi all,  I am in the process of doing a project for some school work and need to do a SWOT analysis of the latest modular PLCs from Mitsubishi (R series), Siemens (S7-1500) and Allen Bradley (ControlLogix).  So I thought what better way than to ask the people on what they think are the pros and cons of each! Thanks for your responses in advance!
  20. I wish to print from a Panelview Plus 7 1500 to a Konica Minolta 'bizhub' 4402P. The printer is not on the same network as the machine but is reachable through a router to the corporate network. I already have this working on one machine but don't know how we succeeded in setting it up. The setup that works is: Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard (it's actually a Konica Minolta 4402P). Model: Color LaserJet 3800. Port  10.xx.xx.xx (the WAN address of the printer). Driver: wt5hpspd.dll (v52.1070) We never had a Color LaserJet 3800 but we may have had a black and white HP laser printer that worked with this driver and now works with the Konica when our IT department replaced it. When using Add Printer the system tries to connect with the specified IP address and fails (even though we can ping it) and then the drive installation stops. Does anyone know a way to force the installation so I can try to replicate the working setup?

  22. CCW Font Sizes Changes

    Hi, I've been writing several programs in CCW using Micro800's and PanelView 800's. Several times now, the font sizes of every single element in every single screen changes. The first time it happened, the font sizes, border widths and corner radius' changed to 440. The second time it happened, only the font sizes seemed to change to 8 - but not on the starting screen. It has once again happened, except this time every element is font size 8 and corner radius 7 - except the second screen which appears unaffected. I am using a default font size of 14. Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening? I don't think it should be relevant, but I am using a virtual machine and sometimes open multiple projects with different screen sizes. Any thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated!
