  1. 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!

  5. NX1P2 Motion Control

    Hi:       I need to change an old PLC  with NX1p2  to control 3 servo motor by means of Analog Outputs couple with encoders, My job is to change the PLC only. So the servo drives and drivers are untouchable (No budget and involve too much mechanical works).   I observed that Sysmac Sttudio Axes setting has this: Servo Axes, Encoder axes, Virtual Servo Axis and Virtual Encoder Axes.   I believe the Encoder Axes couple with Analog Output is able to to do the Job? If so, what function block should i use? If no, do any body have a suggestion of any function block i can use? Thanks  
  6. I'm having trouble with some Powerflex 525 drives. Right now what I need to do is run them manually from the keypad to test conveyor belts.  Is there a way to do this and if so how?   Thanks in advance.
  7. 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!
  8. Delta plc Communication Issue

    Dear allI have DVP14SS211R series Delta PLC Which is having 24V DC supply voltage. I am using PLC as master and My end device as slave.

Communication block it wont give error it shows 0 .means No error
  9. 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 - https://www.alliedelec.com/product/tripp-lite/usa-19hs/70101537/?gclid=Cj0KCQiAj9iBBhCJARIsAE9qRtB_n8TVAnJdFyYokoEu42W6H6LaT4kVsgJQI1qvPUsUF3rFviKpbt0aApLHEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds). 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.
  10. Do you have a known ac repair expert in contacts who can help me fix the issue i am having with my air conditioning unit?
  11. I am now part of a startup company based on energy optimisation of HVAC in buildings. I am assigned to have research on which SCADA system to select for HVAC energy optimisation. The model is in such a way that, we need to create a SCADA / HMI for the client's building on top of existing Building Management System (BMS) to achieve energy saving.  I am still an intern and I am requested to research on various SCADA options available in the market. I have few doubts regarding: 1. How can I select one SCADA / HMI over the other?  2.GE Cimplicity and Niagara 4 are two option which I am interested in. What is the major difference between both? (Price and functionality) 3. Is Tridium Niagara 4 a SCADA software? ( I read about it but I didn't understand as I am new to this field). Is it same like tia portal which is a software that is used to program plc and create user interface??
  12. 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.
  13. 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?  
  14. 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: 192.168.1.21 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. 
  15. 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
  16. I have a purchased Machine that came with a Siemens LOGO 8.FSR PLC (Smart Relay). Generally we use Allen Bradley or Mitsubishi. Anyway, we need to communicate data between the LOGO and an Allen Bradley Compact Logix.  I do not desire to add an additional network to the AB but as best i can tell the LOGO is exclusively Modbus TCP/IP. Has anyone come across a similar situation?  I look online and did find an  Anybus module that claims to be able to link them together.  Looking for anyone who has faced this challenge and succeeded, or failed.   Thanks
  17. Hello Everyone. We have Schneider TM241 PLC Along with Citect SCADA System at 100MWp Solar Power Plant to monitor and control various equipments like Inverters, Switch-Yard, MFMs, Weather Monitoring Systems etc... Government Authority here asked every solar plant to control the generation as per the instructions by Load Dispatch Center, for that we need to implement logic to control Generation as per requirement. For that we are controlling generation from inverters by giving them generation setpoints calculated by PLC using PID function.   But we are facing one problem while using PID. (FB_PID of Toolbox Library)   Suppose we need to generate only 60MW out of 100MW. So we set PID setpoint to 60MW and according to that we get PID output and according to that PID output value we provide generation setpoint to every inverters.   This system works very fine until the clouds comes into the picture.   Now suppose Setpoint of PID is 60MW and PV is also near about 60MW, and suddenly large cloud comes over plant and block solar radiation.   In this case generation comes down to 10MWp(or any value below 60MW), So output of PID will Increase and keep increasing and settle at the Maximum value. but without solar radiation generation value stays very down then Setpoint.   Now suddenly Cloud moves and again solar radiation increase, but the PID output is maximum at that time so, Suddenly Generation goes from 10MW to near about maximum capacity (100MW) instead of 60MW, and then it will slowly comes down to 60MW.   We need to rectify this generation shoot up when cloud moves. Anyone have idea how can we solve this problem or anyone have programmed PID in this kind of situation.   Is there any function block available to do this correctly like function block of PID with two Reference or something like that...   We are using TM241 which is CoDeSys based PLC.
  18. Hello everyone, I have a Kinetix 6000 CIP drive (unwind) and I need to control its speed by a PID controller. I have everything working except the MCD instruction doesn't pick up on the PID output value change. It changes the JOG speed, which I use to control the unwind, if I set the speed manually, which is slow. The PID changes the speed almost continuously. Any suggestions are welcome. This is how I'm attempting to control the speed: A1_r_JogSpeed = PID output value   Thank you    
  19. InTouch Comms

    Hi Everyone, I've just installed InTouch V10 and am trying to develop communication with Emulate5000, for educational purposes. I looked over the internet and found some videos on how to develop communications by setting up the topic name and node name in DA Server manager, but the issue I'm facing is that my SMC only shows logViewer and nothing else (snapshot attached). Am I missing some vital component or dirver? Or is there some problem with my installation? Help would be much appreciated.   P.S: Window Maker and Viewer are working fine. Thanks, Sabih

  25. Hi everyone! I got this machine with a CP1H PLC and NS8-TV00B-V2 as PT. I was told that they were working fine, but suddenly, It appeared a communication issue: black screen and "connecting..." at right bottom. I dont know if It is a configuration problem or some hardware damage.  These are the configuration in the PT and the PLC. The communication is through RS232 Serial.  I tried to communicate another PT screen with the same communication settings and IT WORKED!. ' I've been thinking that, perhaps, the serial port A is damaged, I have tried to set port b, but I havent could. How can I configurate PORT B??   THANKS...
