  3. MPI Connection problem

    Hi there. Recently I've experienced problems when connecting to a S7-300 PLC via MPI/PROFIBUS. I use a PG with CP5711 processor. The thing is that I'm able to connect when I plug the 6ES7901-0BF00-0AA0 cable (male to male) directly to the PLC connector, but when I try to do connect to a PLC that has any device connected to the DP port (let´s say an inverter or HMI) I get 33:17075 error. PG/PC Interface it's correct, in fact another PG with the same configuration is able to connect through the already connected DP device's cable. Station number and transmission rate is all correct.  So I tried the Simatic NET Diagnostics Test and I got error 0x0313 and since the mentioned parameters are correct I refered to this link:  How do Diagnostics and Remedy work in STEP 7 when an online connection with the CP... - ID: 11492532 - Industry Support Siemens Where they say the following:    I've searched for this readme file but can't find it, and there are no useful results when looking for it on internet.  Why am I able to connect directly to the PLC but not when another device is connected and I have to use the female connector of the DP connector itself? Should I try to reinstall CP5711 drivers? According to Windows, I got the last drivers for the CP.    Thanks in advance and I hope you can help me!
  4. Kinetix 6000 Overspeed Faults

    Hi all, I'm having an issue with one of the Kinetix6000 allen bradley servo drives on a filling line that I support. This particular servo motors controls the rotary movements of a series of pumps to ensure accurate dose timing. Every time that I start up the machine, the PLC (Controllogix L7 firmware v28) executes a homing sequence to ensure the servo finds its 0 point. However, the servo in question keeps getting an 'Overspeed Fault' (E55). So far in troubleshooting, we've basically changed every component. We replaced the drive, feedback cable to the drive, and even hooked up a new free-spinning motor directly to the drive. Every component change has resulted in the same Overspeed error shortly after the homing sequence starts. To try and rule out a mechanical issue, I even disabled the homing sequence in the PLC and tried to move the motor using Motion Direct Commands. Immediately after a MSO command, the drive faults out for OverSpeed even with no motion. The last bit of troubleshooting we swapped the position of two of the drives, but the same OverSpeed fault happened on the drive connected to the rotary movement motor. At this point, I'm even considering changing the sercos fibers and the Kinetix power rack. Has anyone experienced anything like this before, or have advice on what to try to make it work? Thanks in advance for all your help  
  5. CompactLogixL24ER

    Dear Experts Request to let me know in case it is possible to get communication software to communicate with CompactLogixL24ER. As per my understanding Rs Logix Studio 5000 is needed , version number required is V21.000 Thanks and Regards
  6. Hi there! I've been working with NB HMIs with good result. But today I loaded a project to a NB7-TW01B and it feels slow, both offline and online. Switching screens and reading/writing take around 1sec or more. It first had some bmp images created with .bmp and .png files, so I tried using vector graphics instead, but didn't get any better. I don't have another NB to try it right now so I'd like to ask you if you've been in this same situation before or what could be causing this. PLC is CP1L and communication it's via Ethernet. Both devices are actually pretty close (cable is less than 3m) and the previous HMI (Pro-face GP) felt a lot faster. Thanks in advance!
  7. Hello! I have a plc program where I need to start and finish an MAM instruction based on a set amount of time. I am trying to calculate the speed of the motor based on the time but when I do, its always off by some milliseconds which I cannot have. I thought this was due to not considering acceleration time but changing acceleration does not change how long it takes the instruction to complete. Is there a more reliable way to perform this? Currently I have my speed units set to seconds which I thought would work (and did improve it slightly) but there is still a slight offset in time. If there is no reliable way to do this, is there a reliable way to predict what the offset in time may be? or what is even causing the offset? thank you in advance. Edit: Or should using seconds work fine, and its more likely something else in my program?

  9. PanelView 800 Recipe Management

    Hello guys, I'm a new guy with Panel View 800 and I have few questions from beginning. I have an application 2x PV800 4" and 1x CompactLogix L24ER.This application require recipe management and I've found that PV800 has weird-different representation of recipe management. I can't figure out how to add additional recipe to the recipe list. Usually I can add new blank recipe without any extra steps, but it's not "add recipe" buttons. I'm looking an answer for next questions: - how to add new blank recipe my template that I made ( picture - - how to get currently loaded recipe name? I have assigned status tag, but it always shows me a number. I didn't find any sort of system tags with selected recipe. - I have installed CCW software v.12. It allows me to create a project with PV800 FW 5.011, but I got a panel with default FW 5.013. How can I add new firmware version into my CCW software? I found AB video about PV800 and recipe ( but it useless without an example file.   Thank you in advance! Regards, Scotty
  10. Hey Everyone,   My company decided to purchase a piece of equipment from China, and I have the pleasure of updating its terrible existing controls. We were given the PLC program by the manufacturer, so I was able to make my changes pretty easily - or at least that would be the case if I could actually connect to the dang thing. The source program is indeed openable and editable via GX developer (the original configuration shows it as an FX3). I figured connecting should be straightforward, but I was wrong.    I initially used a serial/usb converter that I've used on some older Allen Bradley equipment (which worked fine for that). However, after no luck using it on the "Mitsubishi", I purchased a different cable that I found recommended on this forum (Tripp Lite USA-19HS - Still, no luck. I've tried 7E1 and every baud rate possible, as well as some other bit/parity configurations (and yes, I've verified that I'm using the right com port, as well as tried moving the converter to different ports and trying those). Nothing seems to go through.  I have almost no experience with Mitsubishi beyond a couple of FX5s (which have worked fine, but I connect to those via ethernet). Any help would be greatly appreciated; if I can't make these changes, I'm going to end up rebuilding the whole cabinet with a PLC I can rely on.   Thanks in advance.

  13. Dear All, I want to communicate Rockwell 1719 EX I/O with 1756-L62A CPU using 1756-EN2TR over Ethernet. Please help me whether it is possible or not? Thanks
  14. Dear Mr. PLC forum members, I am brand new to the world of PLC’s and I am looking for advice on PLC platform selection for a device prototype. The proposed PLC is for a “smart” hydroponic system. Please see system I/O and other parameters below. Parameter 1: Price - I am self-funding this so price of PLC and software is important. Happy to spend ~$2000 for PLC; I/O cards and related hardware. Total prototype cost is around $15,000 including PLC. Parameter 2: Availability & Support in Australia. Parameter 3:Newbie Friendly: I intend to code the PLC myself and have never coded a thing in my life before.  Parameter 4:Discrete Outputs: 11; Discrete Inputs: 0; Analog Outputs: 2-3; Analog Inputs: 9  Parameter 5: Capability to extend to IOT for remote access control and monitoring (via cellular or wifi router)   As you can see, this is a relatively simple automation project. All my research seems to point to Automation Direct’s BRX PLC but I just wanted to get some suggestions and feedback before purchasing. Anything else that might suit my needs? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Bruce

  16. 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
  17. 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?
  18. Error Indicator on FX3U-ENET-ADP

    Hi all, I have finished installing ethernet adapter module FX3U-ENET-ADP on the FX3U-48M PLC. From the ethernet module, i connected it to a wireless router and then i am planning of connecting to the ethernet module using GXWorks 2 on my laptop through wireless router. On the ethernet module, the error indicator LED is on (red). From the FX3U-ENET-ADP, it means that there might be setting or hardware errors.  I am asking if i have missed some steps on the installation process and if any of you have experience with similar problems. Thanks in advance for the answers.
  19. Is there a way to clear a CPU fault on power up without having to connect to software?
  20. Hi all,  I want to ask some questions regarding Ethernet Communication with FX3U PLC series. I have 2 PLCs of FX3U series (FX3U-48M and FX3U-64M) and I want to monitor its data (input and output) using ethernet communication in real time. My questions are: 1. Does FX3U PLC have ethernet port so I can connect it directly to my Laptop/PC? 2. If no, do I need to use FX3U-ENET-ADP and can it be used for 2 PLC or only 1? 3. What software do I need to use to configure the communication between PLC and FX3U-ENET-ADP? 4. Does this configuration change the existing PLC program? 5. Can i transmit the data wireless-ly using some kind of ethernet to wifi adapter and what additional hardware do i need for that?  
  21. 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: 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. 
  22. Check serial connection to Omron PLC

    Hello, I am building an application in CitectSCADA and I want to communicate with an Omron Sysmac CS1G. The connection between the plc and the Citect computer is through an ethernet to serial adapter (the computer doesn't have com ports on board). I'm having some difficulty establishing the communication and I want to make sure that I can actually reach the plc. Is there a way to check that the computer can reach the plc over the serial connection without using CX programmer? Maybe using Hyper Terminal, Putty or something similar. Thank you, Liron
  23. 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...
  24. 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.
