  1. Is there any one-shot instruction in sysmac studio? I am running a simulator to test the program but I can not work with LD and LDN instructions.
  2. I have a new PC that is running Windows 10, I have RSLogix 500 loaded and working no problem, along with RSLinx, Factory Talk Activation... etc. I also loaded the Studio 5000 package and it loaded without a problem however will not run. It starts and allows you to pick a project to work on, then will display the Logix 5000 splash window for a second, then just close. No error message, crash or idea of what it is doing, just closes. So far no help from AB, perhaps someone here is running this on Windows 10 or has an idea how to figure out why it is closing. Thanks
  3. I am trying to display the time from an Accumulation timer. Using a data display object I am able to see the time in the following format 00:00:00.0000000. Is there a way to format the time without the decimal seconds I just want to see 00:00:00 (hours:minutes:seconds)
  4. Hi, Does anybody know if its possible to access the "Inhibit Module" tick box within the Hardware Device Connection tab from the PLC code? I'm hoping to turn this on / off depending on whether certain modules of machine are physically installed.  e.g. A Kinetix Drive / Point IO etc. Thanks
  5. Does anyone know how to change the reading on Omron servo motor reading from negative to positive? The encoder is reading negative values when it is moving in the forward direction.  I am using 1S servo on NX1P2 controller on Sysmac studio software.  Please suggest. 
  6. Hi, I'm Jovel, I'm new to learning how to program PLC. Just want to learn how to use Omron Sysmac Studio . I have a question about the Data Type Data Type - Structure ( Offset Type - Offset Byte )  / Union   I Don't Understand this 2 Data types and how going to use them, can anyone teach me and have a sample program? Thank you
  7. Hello, I am working on a project currently that uses a windows application on a PC to communicate with an NX1P2 controller to read and write variables data. I found a course on Udemy which has a Visual Studio project with OMRON DLLs that are used for these communications. I confirmed with OMRON that they do have official DLLs for this, but the technical support guy has told me he is trying to find them himself.   I have attached a screenshot of the DLL references.  I am really looking for the DLL libraries, aswell as the documentation on their functionality to I can use them to communicate. Any help would be greatly appreciated!  
  8. Just added a Keyence IV3 vision sensor to my NX1P2 system and have a little issue with the Tag Set / data structure. The Input and Output assemblies imported with the .eds file are an Input assembly of 101 with 394 byte size and an Output assembly of 242 with a 12 byte size. The problem I have is that the 101 Input assy size of 394 bytes does not allow me the OK/NG status of the vision tools from 17 to 64. I need an additional 6 bytes to access these bits in my data allocation table. My question is, Is it possible to modify this Input assy  to a larger size that is acceptable to the NX1 data structure. I tried just altering the size in my Ethernet IP connections tab and creating the corresponding tags in the data structure and it resolved and transferred OK but then would not allow my IV3 sensor to go online and communicate via Ethernet IP. How can I resolve this?
  9.  We have been tasked with saving money on equipment within our 4 plants here in the USA. I would like to investigate using low cost HMI's, I've had great success using C-more in the past. Has anyone had any of the several low cost HMI's attached to Emerson PAC (AKA GE Prophecy) PLC's? has there been any connectivity issues? I'd like to try one to replace the Emerson HMI's which are hard to source, and expensive. I believe any time setting up a low cost option would offset the cost of the Emerson, and open up our choices of HMI's and not be boxed in to one brand. We also use Profinet along with Ethernet connection, I believe the Emerson HMI only uses Ethernet (for us) but if there is a Profinet version that is easy to set up, that would make it an easy sale for me.   This HMI would also have to work with the older 90-30 series PLC's, but i'm pretty sure the communications have not changed much from the to the stand alone RSTi-EP and RX3i PLC's. Any advice would be appreciated.  Have a great week. 
  10. Hi  I am working on a project in Studio 5000 with 5069-L310ERS2 controller.  How can i simulate the program with RSLogix Emulate 5000?  and When i try to add a new module in RSLogix Emulate 5000 it is only possible to choose version 20. When working in Studio 5000 v32 should I not be able to choose version 32?  Thanks  
  11. Hi there,  I'm downscaling my business in Western Canada and have some legit software licenses I'm going to sell. This was my first thought as to where I might explore selling/transferring licenses, but I'm also open to polite suggestions.  I have: one Studio 5000 Full Edition ESD Software (9324-RLD600ENE) (software & valid license) two Siemens TIA portal software packages & licenses with Step7 v14sp1 and WinCC Comfort Advanced V14sp1 (software & USB dongles) an unused Simatic WinCC SmartServer license (software & USB dongle) one Progea Movicon 11 Scada/HMI developer license (software & USB dongle) one Progea Movicon NExT DEV3-FL (developer license) (software & USB dongle) an unused Progea Movicon NExT Scada license (RTCS3-F-1K+WB3-1K) for site install (software & USB *unused) one package of Schneider Movicon with license (Vijeo Designer, Unity Pro S, and SoMachine) (software & USB keys) Thanks!

  12. HI everyone, I'm new in Sysmac Studio and I entered recently in the IAG creation, I have a question, is it possible to edit directly in the main project (not the IAG project) a label into a IAG? My IAG project is composed by a rectangle and a label on this and i want to see the string that i write when i edit the label directly in the Sysmac.
  13. Hello all,   I am working on a batch computer for a concrete mixer, and the computer that was running the plant before has stopped functioning. It was an old PC running MS DOS. The code is encrypted and replacing it is not a cost effective option.   I therefore am looking into using a PLC to control this batch plant. I have a setup that was in progress by another employee who no longer works for us, it is a CLICK PLC from Automation Direct, and it is supposed to be paired with a EA9 T8CL touch screen HMI from the same company. I would like some advice on just some basics, I would greatly appreciate some input.   I essentially only have one input, and that is an analog scale, 0-20mA input. I have digital outputs for sand, gravel, cement powder, and a water meter for adding water to the mixture. I have one final output, an additive for reducing the required water in the concrete.   What I would like to create is a program that when it is told to start, looks at the scale, and if the scale is less than say 100 pounds, opens sand until it hits 1700 pounds (as an example), then turns it off. Then it turns on the gravel and adds that for another 1700 (again for example, all these are variable), turning the gravel off after. Next the cement, and so on. I don’t need someone to write the program for me, but can someone point me in the right direction on using an analog input to turn digital outputs on and off? Again, your help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks for taking the time to read this long post.
  14. Hello, everyone! I am following this YouTube tutorial where it teaches you how to add a block of Modbus server within Studio 5000 for communication with plc ControlLogix. The video: https://youtu.be/qcF4m7rPjkw However, according to a comment from the author of the video himself in my comment I can make such a connection through a Modbus device. How do I do this within ur5 and how can i access UR5 inside Studio 5000?
  15. Hi and thanks for youre time  I am a newbie trying to connect to a 1769-L30ERMS using an Ethernet cable. I am using Studio 5000 and RSLinx Classic lite for programming and communication. However Studio 5000 and RSLinx Classic lite are installed on av virtual machine using VMware.  So my problem is two fold. Connect the VM so that it reads from the real computers ethernet port Find and communicate with the PLC from the VM There are guides on how these problems are addressed seperatly. For example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdArYVceO1I and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERLTvcBBK_w however I have not been able to get them to work together. So I was wondering if you, the sages of PLC programming might have some tips or trix that I could test or perhaps even a guide for how to do? Mvh Eric
  16. Hi All,Cx-Supervisor, NJ501-1340, Sysmac Gateway.I have been writing an update for a project and converting to this new controller.It's a pretty big project.Using a combination of Ladder and ST.Using Cx-Supervisor 3.5.I created some new Variables in Studio and made them Publish only.Started to create Points in Supervisor and made them I/O connected to the variables in Studio. No problems everything was connecting and working just fine.Then one of the points would not update. I could change it in the PLC and it would not change On the HMI.I deleted it and recreated it and it did the same thing. (sometimes points in Supervisor just stop working and recreating them fixes it).I then copied the control and pasted the old point into it and it did the same. Then other started to fail. Showing no reaction.I stopped the gateway and restarted, no help, I rebuilt the HMI, nope.The can check the tags in Sysmac gateway and they always change when the PLC changes but not the HMI.I checked the point maintenance in Supervisor and it would not change.I dumped all the affected variable in the PLC and in the HMI and recreated them. Then it got stranger.I could change some on the HMI and it would show in the PLC but not the other way.This is on Bools and UINTS.Stopped CX-server, tried using it with Win8 compatibility. nope.Pulling my hair out now. I should be coding but I'm trying to get the apps to work.Any ideas will be used with thanks.Peter
  17. Hello, I guess everyone knows the current availability situation with electronic parts. Due to this reason I'am looking for alternatives for the Omron NA-Panel series. I'am curious if you guys already made some good or bad experiences with third party HMIs in combination with NJ/NX PLCs. It would be a pleasure if you could indicate some brands that will work.   Thank you in advance.
  18. I'm editing a dual language project for an NA5 HMI. It's working fine except for the message at startup. To modify the project I've had to update the firmware on the HMI. I'm using Sysmac Studio 1.15. Startup language seems to be set correctly. Any ideas?
  19. I have a PLC ladder logic problem that I am stuck with and would like to know if there is a solution for it. PLC Ladder Logic Problem on PLC Fiddle: Automatic Window Blind There is a window blind that is controlled by using an opening and closing motor. There are 2 IR sensors that act as limit sensors to identify the boundaries of the opening and closing of the blind. The blind can either fully open or fully close. The blind is fully opened during day time and is fully closed during night time. We assume that the day time is for 12 hours and night time is for the other 12 hours. The PLC ladder logic must include at least a SENSOR, an ACTUATOR, a TIMER, and a COUNTER. You may use PLC Fiddle to draw the ladder logic: https://www.plcfiddle.com/ The process is as follows: 1. Assuming that the blind is now fully closed (during night), the night time 12-hour count down starts. The counter is done using a timer that counts 1 second, and after every second, the counter goes down starting from initial value of 12 (1 second represents 1 hour count down for simplicity). 2. When night time counter reaches 0, the counter resets back to 12 and stops, then the blind opening motor activates and keeps running until the blind edge reaches the opening limit sensor. 3. The opening motor then stops, and the day time 12-hour count down starts. The day time counter operates the same as the night time counter. 4. When day time counter reaches 0, the counter resets back to 12 and stops, then the blind closing motor activates and keeps running until the blind edge reaches the closing limit sensor. 5. The closing motor then stops, and the night time 12-hour count down restarts again. The whole process is repeated again. Please find attached below the rough sketch for the idea. Feel free to either sketch the ladder logic or use PLC Fiddle (link above). Thank you.

  21. Unable to delete a screen

    Hello AB professionals, I am using FactoryTalk View Studio v11. I am basing on an old project to build my application. I restored the project from a .mer file. I deleted or renamed some old screens, saved and closed the project. But when I open the project next time the screens I deleted still show up. When I click on it it will show an error message "Component does not exist".  In the FactoryTalk ME application, I right click a screen name on the left tree under the Graphics, and then click "Delete" or "Remove", the display would disappear at that time. But it persists on coming back next time I open the project. If you know the solution to resolve please reply. It is much appreciated.   Thank you. Lei
  22. I'm working on a program where I manipulate REAL numbers in Sysmac studio using an NX1029020 PLC. My problem is I am new to automation and I don´t know how to display those numbers when connecting to an NB HMI. I´m trying to send the data to a bar picture and a number display. My question is which AT Specification Attribute should I assign to my variables in Sysmac Studio and their corresponding Area in NB-Designer? I tried using the DM area but it didn't show numbers on the displays, only shows *****. Should I convert my real variables in Sysmac first? Or how can I keep decimal numbers and then display them? My current configuration in Sysmac: Name Data type AT Network publish ST1 REAL %D5 Publish Only ST2 REAL %D3 Publish Only My current configuration in NB-Designer Bar Picture Addr. Type D Address 3 Code type BIN Number Display Addr. Type D Address 3 Code type BIN Data type Float Integer 4 Decimal 2
  23. Hi all, Can i rename the master of numbered project (#1, #2... create used "save as new number" function)? Actually i can only open preferences window of the last number, and only edit Author and Comment. If i edit one on these two it only change it on the last number. Are there a method to change preferences for the "master" project and all the sub-number? If i would rename a project now i have to save as different project, and loose basic version control that numbered projetc provide (enought for me) and generate more confusion. In the single project i have no problem edit all Preferences include name. Versione: Sysmac Studio Standard Edition 1.47 Thanks, Andrea.  
  24. I'm looking for a serial device server, which will be a cheaper equivalent of moxa. Does anyone recommend anything?
  25. Currently have NX PLC setup as an OPC UA server and an OPC client setup and communicating.  The issue is only tags that do not have a Data Type are showing up in the OPC client.  I have 2 separate OPC softwares connected to this plc through OPC UA and both are having same issue.  If I setup the OPC as a polling service, then all the tags show up as expected.  Does anyone know if this is a known issue with Omron and their OPC UA server, or is there something that I am doing incorrectly (possibly a setting within Omron that I am not aware of)?
