CCW Font Sizes Changes
Celery posted a topic in Allen Bradley / Rockwell AutomationHi, I've been writing several programs in CCW using Micro800's and PanelView 800's. Several times now, the font sizes of every single element in every single screen changes. The first time it happened, the font sizes, border widths and corner radius' changed to 440. The second time it happened, only the font sizes seemed to change to 8 - but not on the starting screen. It has once again happened, except this time every element is font size 8 and corner radius 7 - except the second screen which appears unaffected. I am using a default font size of 14. Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening? I don't think it should be relevant, but I am using a virtual machine and sometimes open multiple projects with different screen sizes. Any thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated!
Creating panelview 800 project with Connected Components Workbench
Jiggadoo posted a topic in Allen Bradley / Rockwell AutomationI am creating the project with Connected Components Workbench, adding the panel. It will not create the folder three to the project. I have the standard version. How to program it now?
grubb posted a topic in Allen Bradley / Rockwell AutomationHello all! I have a two part question - both revolve around using Rockwell's CCW software. 1) in rs500 you can mov a value into the an int memory slot and call that int up later on for comp. instructions to see where you're at. Example, if x switch is active, mov value 0 into N7/0. If y switch is active, move value 1 into N7/0. If both x & y are active, move a value of 2 into N7/0. How is this done in CCW??? I've found the mov command but not sure where/how to store this value. 2) How do does one shot [ONS] work in CCW?!? From what I've gathered the r_trig and f_trig is its replacement, and thought it made plenty of sense. But no matter what I do the triggers never work out correctly. Thanks, -g
Using RTC To Shut off Motor
grubb posted a topic in Allen Bradley / Rockwell AutomationHello - I am currently setting up a program to control a downlane conveyor motor and ran into the issue of operators leaving the conveyor on through their breaks/at the end of the shift.... I know, shocking . Anyways, the essentials of the program are the following - ladder logic, start/stop PB station, a sensor that says when I've seen a box for x-amount of time I will turn off, when the eye is clear for x-amount of time I will turn back on. When trying to 'solve the problem' of the operators leaving them on, I figured this would give me a chance to use a RTC (real time counter) and program it so that at various times of the day I will send a single shot to verify the relay is CT is open. I've enabled the RTC on the Micro810, dropped a TOW but do not really understand how to set the TOW block up. Hopefully that all makes sense. Thanks, grubb
CP1L connected with scanner symbol, with RS-232 on board CP1W-CIF01
FranciscoMYT posted a topic in CX-ProgrammerCP1L connected with scanner symbol DS-4308 reading 2D data matrix, with RS-232 on board CP1W-CIF01 Hi all, need some help because I can't read the information. Let me explain, I have a PLC, " CP1L-L14DR-D " with a RS-232 option borad " CP1W-CIF01 " , a scanner Symbol DS-4308, and I'm trying to read a data matrix 2d barcode (I don't know if that matters). so I build a cable with the next configuration, (one side male and the other female) PORT CONFIG PIN OUT SCANNER CABLE RJ-50 TO RS-232 PINOUT Maybe I'm missing a connection? a bridge? power supply ? ground? in the program, I only have this to check the communication, When my reception flag complete (A392.06), my instruction RXD is going to execcute, reading in D1500 the data. if is any error in communication (A392.04) or overflow (A392.07), my port is going to restart (A526.00) (ignore w0.03) with the followign config: (9600, 7,2,E, RS-232C, End code: Received Bytes 3 and I'm reading only, data on D1500 and D1501, and the data makes no sense. with the configuration of End Code: CR, LF, can't make it work, I read nothing. and if I change the END CODE: Received bytes to 4, don't work. and my flag A392.04 go to ON. PLC HAS 4 PIN SWITCH, ALL ARE OFF The configuration on the scanner is setting to default and then config to RS-232 Standard. So, what I'm missing? bad connections? plc don't support? scanner config? program?
macg posted a topic in Allen Bradley / Rockwell AutomationI'm using three 1756-IRT8I's. This is a test application. Of the possible 24 TC inputs, they may use any one of the inputs or only 1. One TC is required on the first card input 0. The reset of the points may or may not be used. I do not see a built in bit that indicates whether or not a TC is connected. Should I just look at the under range bit?
Change Management LogIn(lost password
MD SULTAN ALAM posted a topic in GEI cant able to make any changes on the points (datatype from INT to DINT) on cimplicity workbench everything thing is greyout!! i checked and found that the workbench has a change management logOn option asking to logon! Which asks for user name and password!! And No one here Now has the user name or its password!! what to do now on such cases , Also on doing modifications on logic developer validating project generates error may be due to mismatch data type of that associated point on workbench.
Socket communication with Micro820
Anthony Blanchette-Potvin posted a topic in Allen Bradley / Rockwell AutomationHi everyone ! I have a little project wich involves communication between two Micro820 controllers via TCP/IP. To do that, I started to work with TCP/IP socket. Within CCW (Connected Components Workbench), I tried to create a new socket instance using the instruction SOCKET_CREATE and set the socket address to 127.0.0.1:21. Basically, my computer through the FTP port. The problem was that it couldn't create a new socket instance (error variable is set to TRUE and status is set to 4, wich I don't know the meaning) because I didn't have a server-side application that listens to TCP/IP socket requests. That said, I found an open source application called SocketTest that listens for TCP/IP socket requests on a specified IP address and port. So, I started a listener on the following address : 127.0.0.1:21, but the error variable is still set to TRUE and status is still set to 4. So, my questions are : Is my IP address OK ? Is my port number OK ? What means the status code 4 ? Is SocketTest doing what I think it does ? Do I need to do something else before using the SOCKET_CREATE instruction ? Thank you in advance for your help !
Can't connect to Micro820 controller via CCW
Anthony Blanchette-Potvin posted a topic in Allen Bradley / Rockwell AutomationHi everybody, Recently, I started working on a project. I want to develop a program for a Micro820 controller (2080-LC20-20AWB) using CCW (Connected Components Workbench). I built a little motor circuit for testing purpose. However, after building the program and downloading it to the controller, I tried to connect to my controller via CCW, but I can't. When I click the button "Connect", CWW crashes OR a window saying : "The controller has unnacepted changes" appears and asks me if I want to "Download current project to the controller" (wich I already did) or "Upload the project in the controller to overwrite current project content" (wich is grayed out). When I choose to "Download current project to the controller", CCW starts downloading the resource, but fails. In the "Output" window, there's a line saying : "Download failed for Device:Micro820: An error occured while reading from GETACTIVERESOURCELIST.". The problem is that there's no documentation at all concerning this error. I even tried to reinstall CCW, but it didn't fix the problem. I joined some images so you guys can see what I'm talking about. Don't mind asking for more details !
Converting UINT to DINT
AdAstra posted a topic in Allen Bradley / Rockwell AutomationGood afternoon, I need to convert a UINT (16-bit unsigned integer) to a DINT ( 32-bit signed integer). Apparently we can't directly assign a UINT variable's value to a DINT's or vice versa. I also couldn't find a way of casting UINT as DINT. The reason why I need to do it is because I'm receiving data from a socket. The RXLength is a UINT but in order to scroll through the data array (USINT[1..1]) I need to use a DINT as the array's index, but I can't compare the array index to the array's length because they are incompatible types. Is there a cast statement similar to: myDINTvar := (DINT) myUINTvar; I also tried the following but it didn't work: myDINTvar := (myUINTvar * 1); Any help will be deeply appreciated.
PV800 HMI multiple position switch
willings posted a topic in HMI & SCADAHi all I am setting up a batch tank system, I have 1 pump which can pump to six different tanks(via pneumatic actuated valves). This is my first go with a HMI, usually I would use a multiple position switch. Is it possible to make a six position selector switch with a HMI? I am using a AB Panel-View 800, has anyone done this before? Any help would be appreciated.
Micro 830 RTC programming
EnviroService posted a topic in Allen Bradley / Rockwell AutomationHi all, Can someone please help me, I am using a Micro830 Controller running connected components workbench software to program the controller. I want the use the Real Time Clock of the controller to control an output to turn on everyday at 01:30am and turn of when it receives a signal from an input. The output will control a backwash valve that will operate and activate a cam switch internally that sends a signal back to the Controller to say the valve has operated and can now stop sending the signal to the valve. (if that makes sense). I have tried playing around with the RTC instructions but I cannot seem to get it to operate how I want it to. Any help would be much appreciated. EnvrioService
How to Send integer files from a panelview component to a modbus TCP Enet device
Steve Ellis posted a topic in Allen Bradley / Rockwell AutomationHello, I am new to the connected components workbench software. I am working with an AB panelview component Hmi and would like to create numeric buttons to load integers into user variables in a schnieder LMD servo motor. The motor uses Modbus TCP to communicate. It appears that if I click on the numeric buttons properties there is a "Write Tag" of which you can use some default tags or create a new one. I am assuming that I need to create a new one with the motor's addressing but I'm not quite sure how to accomplish this. Any help would be much appreciated!!! Thanks, Steve
Damica posted a topic in Allen Bradley / Rockwell AutomationHere's what I'm trying to do. when switch closes turn on output for 1 scan, starts a 10 minute time and counter, so that when time reaches 10 minute it will turn on output again for 1 scan and count another count, timer resets and counts another 10 minutes and turns output on again for 1 scan, and count another count when count gets to 5 this process is complete. I can do this in RSlogix500 with a micrologix 1100 but can't seem to get it working with the Micro800 and connected component workbench.
Getting OPC server error while downloading control strategy on GE workbench 8.4.0
nbn2015 posted a topic in GEHi All, I am not able to download control strategy on DesignerSim. It throws error - " Could not initialize comm to DesignerSim. Err = OPC Server Disconnected". Initially I was able to download strategy on DesignerSim. However, I started observing this error after I installed Wonderware software on the same system. So my system has GE WorkBench 8.4.0 and Wonderware 2014 installed on it. As per GE user guide, GE workbench is compatible with wonderware software. So, I am not sure what's going wrong with the set up which I have. I also tried to install these software on other system, and observed same issue. Does anyone know what could be potential reason for this error ? and How can I resolve it ? Thanks in advance.
