Codesys SoftPLC Profibus Connection
mhsnsrl posted a topic in Other PLCsHello everyone, I want to use my own computer as plc. I have a molex brand SST-PB3-PCU SST card. I will connect my I/O modules to the profibus adapter, then I will connect the adapter to the SST card. Can Codesys see this SST card and if so how do I make the connection. I can connect this type of connection in the InControl (an old software) program that I used before. Please Help Me!! The Board I use to connect the I/Os to the computer: SST-PB3-PCU Profibus Adapter to which I connect I/Os: 1794-APB | Allen Bradley PROFIBUS Adapter Module My I/O Modules: Allen Bradley 1794-IB16 and 1794-OB16 My OS: Win10 64 bit Codesys Version: CODESYS V3.5 SP18 Patch 3

Need help with Timer Logic
SillyBoy posted a topic in General Topics - The LoungeHello Everyone, I am writing one logic and need some help regarding that logic. CURRENT LOGIC - -There are two timers TON_1 and TON_2. -TON_1 timer will start as soon as PLC turns on. -After the done bit of TON_1 timer, the TON_2 timer goes on. -After the done bit of TON_2 timer, again the TON_1 timer will start. -This logic cycle will run continuously, both timers will run turn by turn. Code (Codesys/Schneider Eco Structure Machine Expert)- PROGRAM POU_1 VAR TON_1: TON; TON_2: TON; END_VAR TON_1(IN:=(NOT(TON_2.Q)) , PT:= T#100S); TON_2(IN:=(TON_1.Q) AND (NOT(TON_2.Q)) , PT:= T#20S); Actual Requirement - -There is a BOOL tag. -If the BOOL tag gets high during the TON_1 running, the logic should move to the TON_2 immediately. -If the BOOL tag does not get high during the TON_1 running, the logic should move to the TON_2 after completion of TON_1. -after the completion of TON_2, again restart TON_1. -Logic Runs continuously in a cyclic mode. Give me your valuable idea to fulfill the logic requirement.
grubb posted a topic in Product ReviewsHello - I stumbled across some mention of Codesys and was curious if anyone here uses it. Pros/cons? prefer it over other programming software. Have it downloading currently (since you can download a free variation of the application) but it looks quite interesting. Also - what PLC hardware is programmed with it? Did not see that mentioned on their website when I was browsing through.

Codesys - Updating Unused Variables
uminded posted a topic in Other PLCsIs there a setting somewhere to get the UI to update unused variables? For example, I just need to troubleshoot an Ethernet/IP device I load up an empty project, setup the EDS and I want to view the data. The bit mapping never updates unless I include it in logic. The yellow highlighted items are not used in my program so they do not update. They may be diagnostics or error codes though that I want to see but not use.

Wago 750-881 hardware errors logging
Robbe1991 posted a topic in Other PLCsHi all, I have a Wago PLC and sometimes all IO's start flashing on and off. Then I need to be near the PLC and check the error LED's. They are blinking in a certain way with pauses which gives the error and sub-error code. It seemed there was an error with K-bus. An IO module was missing. I removed some IO's and replaced them again and restarted the PLC a couple times with the end module somewhere in between and suddenly the error was gone. All IO modules were in the same place again and everything worked again. I suppose there is a bad contact somewhere? Maybe I need extra power modules? It happens only once every month or so... 1st question: anyone has an idea of what the reason for this fault could be? 2nd question: is there any place where I can see a log of these errors? I can't find it anywhere in codesys or in the web interface. I'm looking for something like "diagnostic buffer" in Siemens PLC's. Thanks!
Getting Started With Wago PLCs
dange11 posted a topic in Other PLCsHello All, I have some background in Allen Bradly PLCs however am looking at using Wago 750 series PLC for a low cost project. Doing some quick searches I find that the hardware is plentiful and relatively inexpensive. I also see that CoDeSys is widely used for programming them and the best I can tell its free? So, I'm looking a a few hundred dollars for the hardware off eBay and a free download of CoDeSys, is that it, or is there anything else I'm missing to get started? Thanks in advance for your help.

Open platform for Railway Interlocking
argon7 posted a topic in Other PLCsHi everyone, I am newbie in here. I am associated with a rail integrator company in Finland, which is specialized in providing EN 50126/50128/50129 SIL 4 certified control solution for railway signalling and interlocking. As of now, we have been using HIMA PLCs (HIMax, HIMatrix), a proprietary HIMA OS and HIMA's IDE (SILworX). As of now, we are pretty satisfied about HIMA's performances. But we are also assessing some alternatives, which are based on open standards. As per our findings we are looking into the following: Hardware: Artesyn's ControlSafe Computer Platform and MEN Mikro Gmbh's MH50C Platform OS: VxWorks, QNX, PikeOS, Integrity IDE: SCADE (ANSYS), Prover, Flexisafe (Infoteam), Codesys, Matlab (?) Since SILworX is based on IEC 61131-3 languages, and our applications are made up of function blocks, we are trying to avoid platforms like C, C++, AdaCore etc. It would be great to have some inputs on these, and also about some other alternatives. Thanks in advance! :)

Need Help for Converting FB from Codesys to GX Works 3 in ST
Levent1970 posted a topic in MitsubishiHi, Many Programms we have are written in Codesys and in ST Language and now we have a FX5U and I'm trying to Convert some of them. But the both Systems are different, I miss the Librarys like util.lib and FB like RAMP_REAL, BLINK, LIMITERROR which are in Util.lib. Are there Librarys like util.lib for GX Works 3 ? Is it possible to convert Ladder to ST? (I dont have any Idea from Ladder and I'm new in Programming) Have someone Sample Programms for me for Training?

FX3U-ENET and Modbus
Jason Martins posted a topic in MitsubishiHi There i have heard from our local mitsubishi dealer, that there is a Fx3U-ENET module which also supports Modbus TCP. so i ordered one, because i am planning to do a Project using a atv71 FU and a Codesys PLC, so the plan is, that these 3 Devices are able to communicate together over Modbus. has anyone done something similar before? what do i need to setup in FX-Configurator EN, and how can i send modbus commands through that module. i am using GX-Works 2 and have a Structured project. any help would be appreciated. thank you jason
