  1. CC-Link Protocol with a CJ2

    I have an IAI servo that was sent to us with CC-link protocol. I have never in my life used cc-link and can find very little on the topic on integrating with an Omron CJ CPU. I am curious as to whether this has been done, or is even possible given the protocols Omron works with. And if so, what did you have to do to get the PLC to communicate via CC-link. Thanks in advance for the responses!
  2. Hi, I've got a very old version of Wonderware, version 9.5, which isn't going to be upgraded anytime soon. I would like to configure a button to perform 2 tasks under "Touch Pushbuttons", ideally "Action" and "Show Window". I am unable to enable both at the same time, so I've been trying to write a script that would perform both functions, but so far unsuccessfully. Is this something that can be done, or is there another way to get around this problem? I would like the button to toggle a bit and to open another window with more controls.   thanks
  3. Mitshibisi to Fanuc Robot with cc link

    Good day all. I was wondering if someone can assist with the setup between a Mitshibisi R08SFCPU using a RJ61BT11 to talk to a Fanuc Robot controller. So in the screen shot attached i added a generic station because i can not find a file for the fanuc robot. The problem is that it does not give me the option of setting the Rx and RY registers. So not sure how to assign the relevant IO. Anyone with knowledge with this would be great
  4. RIWT special relay

    Once agin hello all, im pretty sure, that in the past i found in some manual special relay (SB????), that was set on when PLC was executing RIWT instruction. Now im trying to find once again, but with no luck, ive searched through all manuals that looked relevant, but nothing... any help will be highly appreciated.
  5. Hello,  I want to compare pulsed coming from flow meter with a constant value. And make a bit to high level when my set pulses are equal to present value in counter. I am using 1734 Vhsc24 module for this. If any body have sample program kindly attach it. 
  6. Hello All,  Am a bit new to practical PLC applications. I was trying to configure a Phoenix Contact I/O module (1452916) on a MicroLogix 1100 PLC but it kept faulting out with the fault light RED. It would say "Major Error Halt S:1/13". The error description says I/O mismatch. The error code is 187h (see attachment). The Phoenix module has a cable with 19 pin positions for the 8 input. I connected the pin 17 and 18 to 24 volts and  0 volts respectively. Then because I was using input 5 I connected the pink wire to PLC input (I/1) 24volts and the White/Yellow wire to the PLC common.  On the I/O configuration on RSLogix 500, I used "Other" ( See attachment) but did not know the vendor details. Could anyone help me with the steps on how to communicate with the module? I have also attached the PLC program I was running. Thanks        
  7. Hello, I have been so many days trying to comunicate the multiway software trought a serial usb converter with the SCU31 device, using a omron function block to read a holding register, but I can't achieved it. Now Im receiving some frames on multiway, but there is always some errors. I was wondering if somebody in here that have worked previously with modbus and omron can be able to help me in how to configure everything corectly to be able to read the value from multiway, on the plc, and where is this value saved.  I'll upload some captures to show what I have done till now.    
  8. Change CIP Service Code

    Hi all, This is my first post here, I read through the FAQ, searched the Allen-Bradley forum and this one for my question but couldn't quite find what i was looking for. My main questions is: Is it possible to programmatically change the service code of a MSG instruction?  It is possible to change the class,  instance and attributes but the application I'm currently writing would be a lot simpler if all I had to create is one instance of the MSG block (and its data) . The only thing stopping me is the service code.   Edit: I'm using a CompactLogix 5380-L306ER   Any input is greatly appreciated!
  9. OMRON CP1L PC Link over Bluetooth

    Greetings, My application is utilizing two Omron CP1L PLCs connected through an RS232 serial link to achieve PC Link. We're essentially using this setup to message data between the two PLCs. With a hard-wired link, it works great. I can force bits in the master PLC, and see them in the slave PLC. However our application requires this link to be wireless. We got our hands on two SENA Parani SD1000 units. I've worked with these units previously to connect a serial scanner to a Rockwell PLC quite successfully. After reading through datasheets, we figured out the pin-out from Serial Comms unit fitted to the CP1Ls wasn't quite standard. So we adapted our own cables to re-route VCC and SG appropriately. So with a hard-wired link, this setup works, and the comms units on the PLCs have a nice solid lit up comms light. But with the wireless parani connection, the comms light lights up, but it is very dull compared to the wired link, and we get no data transfer. I've verified to the best of my understanding that the comm settings all match, at 9600 Baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and Even parity. Just curious if anyone has any suggestions to get this working, or if there are any settings that I might have missed that make PC Link a unique form of RS232 that these parani units can't handle? I've identified online alternative units known as the Promi SD205-OA, which has a pin-out to match the OMRON CP1L PLCs. As far as I can tell though, the units themselves function the same as the Parani SD1000 besides this pin out. Anyone know differently? Presently the serial connections made are Tx -> Rx, Rx -> Tx, Vcc -> Vcc, and SG -> SG. Would I require anymore connections? Our wired link seems to work just fine with just those connections.   Any help would be greatly Appreciated!!

    Hello ,  I dont have experience with Mitsubishi PLC.  I want to do a modification on the ethernet configuration but i dont have the source code .  According the information that i read we can use GX IEC developer or GX developer but my question are :  Can i upload and download the program with GX developer?  Even if was previous developed with GX IEC Developer i will not do any change on the code only on ethernet configurations , add a MC communication. I have another concern about the profibus module. For the profibus is necessary another program right ? But if i don't want do any modification on the profibus is dont need it, right?  My experience on Siemens when is necessary do a modification on the hardware configuration. I should have all the hadware configuration " right"  it means if i have profibus i should have the right GSD to allow do modification on the configuration .  But on Mitsubish i can´t understand that well . Regards  Roberto Fonte  
  11. Everyone, Using a Q series Mitsu PLC interfacing with a M1P Pilz Safety PLC - and only receiving 32 bits from the SPLC. I have the station setup in GXWorks2 as a device station (occupying 4 stations). I am receiving only the 1st station of the 4 designated. (It is node 9 in the snippet) Any tips on this? (First time posting btw) Thanks, Elliot
  12. BECKHOFF CX-9020

    Hello PLC experts, I am master student currently writing thesis. For this, I have a initial task of making some changes to PLC program (Just started getting to know about PLCs- complete beginner). I have a BECKHOFF cx 9020 PLC connected to my notebook using ethernet. I am using TWINCAT 3.1 (VS) as IDE. Firstly, I cannot find my PLC IP address connected to my notebook . I added the route in the Twincat and it shows the PLC is connected. When, I am trying to run a program (activate boot project), I am unable to login to the PLC. It gives an error "login failed for application port 851". What I undertood from BECKHOFF scripts,  there is something wrong with the ADS ams net ID which I am trying to figure it out. I appreciate all the help. Thank you.
  13. Hi every one, I'm new here. Is there any CC-Link IE field basic master or simulator that can be use on Windows PC, for testing  CC-Link IE field basic slave communication ?   Thanks in advance    
  14. Hi   I'm beginner from plc programing, I  need to sent data (D0000-D0010) to PC through Host link mode . i just sent data from PC to PLC with command serial port is work only like below PLC_Serial.println("@00SC0252*");//sent to monitoring mode PLC_Serial.println(CalcFCS("@00KSHR 004500"));//set H45.00 to hight PLC_Serial.println("@00SC0352*")//sent to run mode but  PLC to PC i don't know how to do . Could you advise me ? Thank you.
  15. Hey everyone! New member here, and this site has always been a big help!  I try to help other folks too, but a lot of guys are super quick on here.   I've got a problem using some obscure components. I inherited a sensor network at work that uses Panasonic S-Link and I need to read them from a Q-Series. Panasonic makes a module that slots into the Q Series called an SL-VMEL-Q that I have.   My question is:  Did I do everything correctly on my Mitsubishi side? I put it into the parameters as an intelligent module with 64 points and I put the correct address in for the start I/O. Is that all I have to do?  This is the first time I used a module that wasn't on the drop down list when you add one in GX Works 2.   I can read and write to the buffer memory, but I can't get the unit to send to or receive from the sensors. I think the problem is that there is no end unit on the S-Link line (I don't know if it's just a terminating resistor or what), but it previously worked without one, so I can't be certain.
  16. Hey guys, I've question about Transient transmission (TT) via CC-link using FX5 as a master. According to chapter 4.3 in "FX5 User's Manual (CC-Link)" only way to access TT is via computer with GXworks3. Is there some workaround to use standalone FX5?   Thanks again
  17. CC-Link IE + C#

    We have a controller written in C# and need to integrate a servo.  We are looking at the Mitsubishi servo MR-J4 line.  Unfortunately it doesn't support Modbus TCP but does have the CC-Link IE protocol.  Does anybody know if it is possible to talk to CC-Link IE via C#?   I'm having a helluva time trying to find an answer.  I see some thing about Seamless Message Protocol (SLMP) and CC-Link but the info is somewhat sporadic.  Any advice is much appreciated as I've never worked with the Mitsubishi product line (but interested in their PLCs).
  18. Hello all. I have been working with an SLC 5/04 system, which houses various Digital and Analog INs and OUTs, up to Slot 29. I am currently mainly working with Slot 25, an Analog Input: 1746-NI16I. This is a system which has already been set up and has been running for the best part of 8-10 years. This particular card has had some spare inputs, one of which I am trying to connect to. In the Advanced Configuration, only a few Channels are actually "Enabled", and each channel is pretty much slightly different from another in terms of Input Type, Filter Frequency and Data Format. I am trying to set up Input 14, which is Channel 15, to "Enable" it, 4-20mA Input Type, Filter Frequency of 6 Hz and Data Format of either Raw/Proportional or Engineering Units. Now, after I have made my choices, I click apply, and then OK. I am then confronted by a pop-up which states: "Configuration Rung and Data Integer Data File Number: 25 Integer Data Element: 100 Rung to be inserted: XIC S2:1/15 COP #N25:100 #O0:25.0 24 At Program File Number: 4 82" I have the options of OK or Cancel. If I click OK, I now have LAD 4, Rung 82 Highlighted. This First Scan Bit and COP function were already here, but does that mean I have now altered what is being written to "#O:25.0"? I now Download the Changes. However, after all this, I am not getting any Analog input reading coming in from the Live PLC. What is this COP function? What does it do? How do I properly set up this Analog Card?   Thanks for your time, -Jame
  19. Here is a link to a thread on a recent post showing how to communicate serially to an Omron PLC using VB.Net. This uses the Omron Host Link serial protocols. (C-Mode Commands) It will read 10 DM registers and display them on the form. Here is the source program that can be downloaded. Other links: VB6 Program: VBA Program: Regards, Garry

  21. RS232 ascii to CC-Link

    Hey all, im looking for some way to convert ASCII msg from rfid reader send through rs232 to CC-Link, I've found AJ65 from mitsu and some converter from Anybus, but I would like something much smaller...   changing readers for some CC-link compatible is most likely out of question (unless reader will be cheaper than converter), because they are legacy HW with hundreds of them instaled   Thank you
  22. Hallo. I want to know if its possible to write to eeprom of an A800E inverter via cc-link ie. I have successfully written and read any parameter to the ram. But now i need some parameters to be stored in the eeprom. Im using the A8NCE card on the inverter. The manual only states a bit to write speed and torque to eeprom, but nothing on any other parameters.
  23. 1746-NO8V configuration

    Looking for a little help.  Replaced a 1746-NO8V analog card that hadn't been working for years and the new card is giving a Configuration Error (Module LED flashes twice, all 8 outputs are flashing 12 times).  I have 2 other of the same cards in the same rack that have been working for a very long time and still working that seem to be configured the same way.  Is there any way to know what is wrong with my configuration.  or maybe my new card is just bad???  I have not yet swapped one of my working cards with the new card, have considered but really think I'm missing something.
  24. I am trying to setup a CC Link between two machines. I have done this before without issue, but for some reason this is not going well.. I added a second CC link card to CPU2 and set it as ST 24 for the CPU1 network.  CPU 1 : Master.   cc0.jpg.   The original machine was setup using TO/From for each station, so i couldn't add this new link through the GUI.  CPU 2: Local cc1.jpg  When i try to use the GUI to setup this side the buffer stops working. but if i activate any TO/From instruction here i get a system fault with a 2110 SP. Unit Error CPU2 buffer cc2.jpg. But when i block the TO/From you can see the buffer is working at that exact same location specified.    2110 error says I am addressing the wrong card but the buffer proves that I am not. 
  25. Hallo. Im hoping someone can shed some light on these topics. The company im working for have been using gx developer iec 7.04 for ages. The setup we have been using is QxUDE plc with beijer HMI and FR-E700 inverters on profibus. Recently(finally) we have been forced to start using gx works 2 because of newer plcs. With new software come new questions as always. And since im feeling we have been hanging in old software for too long. I want to make sure we are up to date this time. The setup we plan on using is QxUDV cpu, CC-link ie (QJ71GF11-T2), FR-A800 inverters and GOT 2000 for HMI I have made a few project in siemens and TIA portal. And software wise it has always annoyed me, that mitsubishi lacked the same integrated software package as siemens. This made me discover navigator. With system labels navigator makes the variable control, hardware setup and project overview im missing from siemens possible. My question to navigator is. Does people use this? i dont see much about it on the forum? is it already outdated? Gx works 2 or 3 Again i cant figure out what is new and what is old. What are the pros and con for choosing either? CC-link ie or CC-link From internet reading. I find that IE is the newest and faster CC-link version? Is the classic CC-link on the way out? If not why should i choose IE over classic? When setting up CC-link IE in navigator i dont get the same hardware in the catalog as CC-link. To setup inverters i need to user general intelligent device station. Whereas in cc-link i can choose FR-inverters. Is this the way it works? or can hardware catalogs be updated somehow? Blocks for FR-A800 Maybe its just me. but i really think the search function on the mitsubishi download page is crap. When i filter QPLC i get LPLC etc. ive been trying to find some blocks to control inverters without luck. Do i start creating it myself or can you point me in the right direction? I know these are a lot of mixes questions. But i feel we have been non-efficient for years because of bad software choices. Hope someone can shed some light one these points.
