  1. Been seeing a high failure rate on these PLC's on 2 of our processes. The control power is feed through a APC UPS to a 24VDC power supply to power the unit. Getting a hard fault where the OK LED comes on red and stays red. It never sequences through all the LED on power up. Tried the hard boot by holding in the reset button and applying power. Has anyone on else seen a high failure rate on this model PLC? TIA..
  2. Motion Control

    Hi Everyone.   I have been tasked with changing out an older Flex Drive servo drive to a more modern Micro Flex drive in a machine that has an Omron CQM1H-CPU51 PLC.  I'm having a few issues but hope that i can gain some clarity around at least one of the hurdles Im facing from here. Biggest issue for me at this moment is My work hasn't yet purchased a programming lead for this PLC (or even the bits required to make one myself) but i have a feeling the control for the Servo is done via motion control in the PLC.  Question here is, if changing from one servo drive to another type, will the motion control code need to be updated to work with the new servo drive?  I have very limited experience with motion control itself at this stage so I'm a bit lost when it comes to these sort of details. Regards Kiwi_man82
  3. hello, I want to ask, maybe some of you know about this, I want to take a program on compactlogix but it has a firmware version 19.xx while the rslogix application I have is version 21.xx, there are several options offered by the application to be able to take the program, update the firmware in compactlogix or downgrade the rslogixku application to version 19.xx. if i upgrade the firmware in compactlogix, what about the program is the program safe or not, and if i upgrade the firmware will the program in compactlogix work properly?

  13. VHSC5/C

    Hey all. Wondering if anyone has an example program they'd be willing to share? Specifically I'm using the 1734-VHSC5/C with a 1769-L18ER-BB1B PLC. All of Rockwell's wonderful information only refers to SLC-500 platform. I'm not trying to do anything terribly fancy, just have a quadrature encoder attached to Channels A & B, then using an output to turn on a valve at 8.0" and turn off at 10.0" Any help would be appreciated.
  14. I have 0x4c requests from my ipc to the controller, with request path: Class - 0xB2, Instance - 0x004C. And 0x4c responses from the same path, and then "Command Specific Data": example 1 (of the command specific data): 0100a6409d00a6409d00a6409d00a6409d00a6409d00a6409d00a6409d00a6409d00a6409d00a6409d00a6409d00a6409d00a6409d00a6409d00a6409d00 example 2: 0100a7409d00a7409d00a7409d00a7409d00a7409d00a7409d00a7409d00a7409d00a7409d00a7409d00a7409d00a7409d00a7409d00a7409d00a7409d00 example 3: 0100a8409d00a8409d00a8409d00a8409d00a8409d00a8409d00a8409d00a8409d00a8409d00a8409d00a8409d00a8409d00a8409d00a8409d00a8409d00 Looks like it always starts with 0100, then repeating some value. In the first one the repeating value is 00a6409d, and then in the end 00. Or maybe it's 01 and then just repeating values surrounded with 00 or something similar. Is it values surrounded with 00, written using little-endian? Does the variable in request have a name?  
  15. ello I have a powerflex 400 of 25HP for a 60amp 25HP motor, the motor have a belt that move the clarifier of milk. It is a process that requires strength to move.So I try with the motor without the clarifier the vdf works well with a constant amp of 12 to the max of 50hz that is set up with a ramp of 600 sec.Then I try with the belt that move the clarifier... The vdf start the ramp with a wird amp behavior like 10 sec 100 amp and then 13 amp for 10 sec.When it gets to 50hz (the max) it starts the same behavior 13 amp when it reach the max RPM and when it decrease a little bit it gets 100 amp to get to the max RPM again.In this vdf powerflex 400 I didn't see the % of torque options that the last one Fuji had.Someone told me that powerflex 400 is not for power processed, they are focus in pumps and blowers more alike, and that I need a vdf vectorial like a powerflex 725.What do you think...PD: as the 100 amp is like 10 sec the protections dont show up. PD: I made a try with water and hot water, in that point with the max hz  (and 6800rpm) when the hot water start to flow the amp gets constant in 75 amp, but the motor dosnt get to the 6800 rpm again it just keep trying in 6700rpm and it mantains the 75amp triggering the motor protection for overload.
  16. I have 23 Micrologix 1400s and I want to take the same register, N100:99, out of each one and put in a single array in a CompactLogix L18ER. From what I have tried, it only seems like I can only map a range of integers, N100:77-N100:100, to the array and not an individual register to a particular element. (For example, mapping N100:99 from machine 16 to Selected_Model[15]) Can you map to individual elements in an array? If so, are there any instructions on how to do so? Thank you in advance for reading my post!
  17. How long  could be INT array. For example can I build INT[365] or DINT[365]? When I use more than [32] my controller fails. Thanks.

  21. Hi everyone, To explain the problem a little bit: I have 2 systems that are equal, they have 1 PLC, 1 Inverter and 1 Servo Axis (Image01). The devices are connected via EtherCat. The thing here is tht in these systems the PLC and Servo Axis is the same but the inverter is different. My goal is to have the same project on both systems and depending on the inverter detected use the correct program. What worked: If I add the 2 Inverters and 2 Servo Axis on the project on different nodes (Image02), I can detect which is present using the variable _EC_EntrySlavTb[n]. My issue is that if I want to make more replicas of the systems using different inverters I will eventually hit the Axis Number limit for the PLC while in reality I am only using on Servo Axis at a time. What I wanted: I would like to be able to control 1 Servo Axis with 2 different inverters (only one active per PLC) (Image03). What I tried: The axis parameters can be set using a variable of the type _sAXIS_PARAM, however it seems that the option to change the axis basic settings is not available (Manual: NJ/NX-series Motion Control Instructions Reference Manual (W508) page 5-58) (Image04). The axis basic settings is where the definition of the output device plus control words are set (Image05). Is there a work around to solve this issue? I would really like to avoid having to manually change the output device for the Servo Axis every time I make an update on all the systems.   Best Regards, BR  
  22. Hi, I'm looking for help with the string exchanging between GT25 and AB CompactLogix. I'm reading recipe data from SQL via MES interface to the local devices such as GD3000. I want to move the string held in the registers GD3000-3009 (20 characters) to the string tag in the Allen Bradley. The problem is that in the scripting I cannot enter the AB Tag, because when I imported the CSV with the string tags their data type is STRING, and the scripting in GOT accepts only numerical datatypes such as WORD, etc. Has anyone found a way to handle that?
  23. This may be more of a Zebra question than a PLC question but I will post it here. I am using Zebra's Network Connect to enable communication between a CompactLogix L13ER and a ZT410. My issue is that the QR Code omits the 5 elements of the array in Field 1 of the CompactLogix. I expect the first two elements in the array to be ignored per the manual but the first 5 has me puzzled. All the characters in the text shows up fine. I have attached what I am seeing. If you have a QR Code reader, you can scan the QR Code.
  24. simple motion cam curve

    Good afternoon, I have a problem in an application for a rotary knife, I'm using a MR-JE-B servo to make this movement, while my material is powered by an inverter connected to a modbus rs485 network, with a 5v encoder connected directly in motion. I'm having some problems and I think it's my cam curve. I have a very high refeneration, and the system doesn't obey the size of the length I want the cut. It always cuts the same size, regardless of the configuration I use, it always cuts to 245mm. Put some photos, how are my settings. Grateful in advance, if anyone can help me.

  25. Dear Colleagues,   I require some help with regards to setting up virtual machines, We have some ControlLogix 1756 PLCs scattered around site running on different version (v20, v21 & v32). My company requires all software installations on company computers to go through IT. Installing all these versions on single PC is really a pain (going through IT)  for new hires and for new PCs. I am trying to suggest using virtual machines for each version that can be shared/distributed among the engineers and also to give engineers some autonomy in the VM environment.    How do I go about this especially with respect to licensing without violating the terms of use both the operating system and the automation software?
