  1. Hi, I am looking for a Modbus TCP based AI and DO data acquisition module and scada program. The analog inputs are 4-20 mA . SCADA should be able to communicate over Modbus TCP( I think every SCADA does that but just want to make sure). Can you guys please suggest if you know something good fit my application? Thank you,
  2. Hey guys, so I feel like I must be doing something wrong here, well obviously since I cant get it to work. So I have a CompactLogix L36ERM running RSLogix5000, I've got 28 cards in total, all working except for one. My 1769-OF8V Analog Ouptut module. I just want to be able to output a 0-10v signal to a proportional valve module, specifically a Parker PCD00. Anyways, so I am online with the processor, everything is looking good, I/O is responding. I have the specific channel on that output module enabled in the module properties. I have tried changing the data type to every different option, I have raised and lowered the limits. I think I am addressing it correctly. I am just trying to move a value into that channel's data file. It appears to be moving the number in just fine, but when I put a meter on the output for that channel, I get 0V from the output to analog com. There is a little switch inside the module that allows you to use rack power or external 24V, I tried switching it down and using an external 24VDC source, I currently have it switched up to use the rack power. I'm lost. If somebody could please help me out and tell me if there is something obvious that I'm missing or doing wrong/ take me through an easy step by step way of setting this up for basic 0-10v output, that would be great. Sorry for being so new, I have attached a couple screenshots of the logic I'm using and the way I have it configured right now, but I have tried all different configurations. Thanks, Howard
  3. I'm new to Omron, and after several days of diving into manuals trying to figure this out on my own and giving myself a headache I've come to accept that i need help. my task is the following: Control of the discrete and analog inputs/outputs in a DeviceNet system using an Omron CJ1M PLC’s and PT’s. Use at least one thermocouple, one analog input, and one analog output for the DeviceNet network. Use a pushbutton and a light for the start of the process and an indicator for the started process. I have a Drt1-Ad04 input, a Drt1-ad02 output, and a Drt1-ts04t temperature control. My devicenet is Cj1w-drm21, The Omron system itself is a cj1m-cpu13 etn21. I have node addresses for my input, outputs and temperature control, those being 35 for input, 25 or 30 for output and for temperature control 5, 15, or 20. The ip address im using for this project is'm using Cx programmer, Designer and Integrator. On Cx programmer I've managed to create an IO table but i have no idea on how to begin the program or even get a current reading from my generator.On Designer I've made what i believe to be the layout of the pushbuttons, I just have no idea of what addresses to enter.And on integrator i'm having troubles on figuring out how to make a routing table. I've went through many manuals and either i'm missing something really basic here or I just have no idea on what I'm doing. The only advice I was given was to dive into more manuals and find my addresses for my inputs, outputs, and temperature or to find the information from an outside source be that a forum or customer service. I am able to provide more information, and screenshots of what I have done if needed. Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
  4. Panasonic FP-X C30R

    I'm very much a novice to plc programming. I've dabbled in years past with Mitsubishi FX units with Medoc long before G X Developer became available. I also did a bit on Schneider using Zelio software. All very much simple stuff using ladder logic and internal relays But I've got me a Panasonic PLC that is surplus to requirements where I work and I would like to investigate the possibility of using it for practice purposes. Who knows, I might even get it to do something useful. I expect it is a few years old - its got a version No 2.4 and what seems like a date on it 080916. First query - is there software available for this item. Second query will it be compatible with a computer running on Windows 7. I've checked on the internet and see that there is documentation out there the plc. I decided ask for some informed opinion from before I go too far into what turns out to be a "cul de sac". Regards jaymac.

  6. Hi everyone! I have this simple problem, but cant get over it. I have structured ladder/FBD Project and i use GX works2. As topic tells I use analog signal from field. Now, i need to compare this value X (from field) to Values X1 and X2, meaning if value X is between values X1 and X2 then M1 is true. Ok, but what function i need to use for this? Best regards, Juha.
  7. I am working on Remote IO panel and plan to use the following components: 1734-AENT 1734-OW4 - qty 2 1734-IE4C I wonder if I need to separate the bus between the relay output module and analog input module? Or anywhere else in this setup? Thanks.
  8. Hello all, I am trying to download a new program to a AB 1746-BAS SLC 500 BASIC board via RS-232 connection through a Windows 98 laptop running Hyperterminal. While the BASIC board is connected I verify connection by waiting for the board to print out its information in the Hyperterminal program and then enter "CLEAR", "NEW" and finally, "LIST" in Hyperterminal to wipe any program from the board and verify the board is clean respectively. Then I load the new program via a .TXT file using the "Send Text File" option within the Hyperterminal program. After the program has finished loading I than type "LIST" to verify it has copied over correctly. I than switch the SLC over to "Program Mode" via the key. After doing so I type "RAM" to select the program i just uploaded to the BASIC board and then type "PROG" in the Hyperterminal program. I than receive the "Programming Sequence Failure". If anyone has any advice as to what I am doing wrong it would be greatly appreciated. Below is a list of everything I have set and researched. Thank you in advance, James -Laptop: Windows 98, Hyperterminal -BASIC board (programming): JW1 pin: 1-2 3-4 JW2 pin: 1-2 3-4 JW3 pin: 1-3 2-4 JW4 pin: 5-6 3-4 -RS-232 9-pin connector: Pin 2 connected to Tx Pin 3 connected to RX Pin 5 connected to ground Pins (4/6) crossed DSR/DTR Pins (7/8) crossed RTS/CTS -Hypterminal: Direct Com1 bits per second: 1200 parity: none stop bits: 1 Flow control: Xon/Xoff Settings/properties: -> Emulation VT100 -> ASCII line/character delay: 30 milliseconds check box: Append line check box: Wrap lines... -Manuals: 1746-rm001 1746-pm001

  10. Buy what PLC?

    Hi I want to buy a PLC and additional required stuff, to play with at home. Where do I find cheap PLCs? What software do I need to make this work with a Windows 8 PC? What other physical interface and software is needed/recommended?
  11. I need to set up D/A module. I have few questions. What is the difference between offset and gain setting mode? I would like to use range 0 to 10V which would have to be set as user range setting, can I do it using GX Works 2? Or do I have to use the GX Configurator-DA package?
  12. Hi everybody, I am new in these issues and I have faced a problem that is driving me nut. I am building a mixing batch HMI and its PLC program. In my HMI I created an analog tag that stores and integer number. This tag is responsible to comunicate with an analog input of the PLC I/O expansion module, whose address is I:1.0. In my HMI I put a numerical input box to send values to this analog input, but every time I write a value in this box and press the enter key the numerical input box gets red and don't send the value to the plc. Appear the following error message "cause: Addressing problem or memory protect rungs" on the left botton corner of the HMI. Some pictures are annexed to describe better. Anybody knows what can I do? I am using PLC SLC 5/03 + Analog module 1746-NI4

    Any one out there have a programmer for one of these old PLC's or can any one recommend some where I could send one and have the program printed off for trouble shooting ? Thanks !
  15. ML1500 Analog Smoothing

    Hi All, Im sure this has been covered before... Im using a ML1500 and a 4-20ma output flow meter. Due to the erratic flow in the line the analog signal is all over the place. What is the best way to smooth this signal out so I don't see all these variations..??? I don't have a CPT instruction on the ML1500 but there has to be a way. Just looking for the way you guys do this that gives you the best results. Thanks
