Hi guys, I have been thinking about wether can increase the numbers of produced and consumed tags, between my plc-s. Currently I have two plc it already have produced and consumed tags, but unfortunatelly soon we are running out of free tags. I read the manual and it said I can make 125 dint tags, currently we have only an array with 10 element. If I make a new one and I kinda copy it, with different names, will it be work ? Or do I have to set something else ? Can I ruin the communication with the two plcs ? THanks ahead.
How can I determine if both my Produced and Consumed tags are communicating with each other, and if have the right set of tags since I forgot how I named them? Is there a way to confirm that both my P & C are communicating.
I am trying to get produced and consumed tags set up between 2 1756 racks with different ip's. The 1st rack has an ip address 172.28.6.3. The 2nd rack has an ip address of 10.81.105.8. Would this be as simple as adding an EN2T card to one of the racks and setting the ip of one onto the same network? Or is there a better way to do this?
I have an application I am currently working on where I have a single AB ControlLogix PLC that needs to read data from 12+ Omron CJ2M PLCs. The Omron PLCs don't need to read any data from the AB. I have tried several things including the generic .eds file from Omron and the instructions in the document I found on this site: Omron CJ2 to Rockwell ControlLogix Ethernet/IP Datalink. The generic .eds file gave me a D6 error on the Omron side and after talking to support it does not seem like the correct path. When I tried following the instructions for the datalink I ran into several issues. The first issue was that after configuring my network in the Omron software upon trying to load it I got a unit mismatch message for the 1756-EN2T, the .eds file I have is for a 1765-EN2T but the card shows as a 1756-EN2T/D, so I am concerned that could cause an issue...that being said I can't find any .eds file specifically for the /D revision. The next thing I noticed was that there doesn't seem to be be a way to link the produced data from the Omron to the AB, the Omron configuration software with the AB .eds files loaded only gave me the option to send data to the Omron which we do not need to do. I created a generic Ethernet module in my RSLogix program for the Omron PLC and then created a consumed tag and linked that to the module but I do not see where I set up the link on the Omron side for that, so how does it know what addresses to read?? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!! Thank you!
