  1. Hey everyone first post on here, does anyone know if it is possible to convert a string into a double integer. i am working with a dimensioner and it is sending me its box dimensions in a 12 char string (see attached picture). however i need this data as a double integer (it seems to just take the string length not the string value i have tried both dim_lengh and dim_length.data[0]). i have gotten it down to the point where i have the string split up into the dimensions i need but i dont know how to do the conversion. (box dims for reference are 21 X 15 X 14.8) Thanks in advance, Dr. Brule

  3. Hello, I'm not sure if I should make some presentation first but as time is always short i'll just expose the doubt. Unfortunately because of a technician misunderstanding I ended resetting/erasing the PT software after a full memory error. The SW2 switch 1 was used and the system screen data program was erased instead of the program client data. So all the screens menus buttons etc were lost. Unfortunately there was no copy of the application but a similar machine was found were a different screen (NT21-ST121-E) was installed and by luck the programmer technician used the same file from the machine I'm dealing with. I suppose he might have done some modifications to make that machine able to deal with the same and different objects too. But the base menu screens seem exactly the same. In fact the screen buttons appear to be miss aligned as for a smaller screen, so for sure He used the same application. Now the problem is that the NT- Series Support Tool 4.82 only allow auto-conversion of the applications to a recent model. Example, if a make a NT20S application and change the PT type to NT21 it asks for conversion confirmation and all goes ok. (It will need to set Clock Address that I don't know which to chose). But this Is not what is the problem. Problem is that after uploading the application from the NT21 of the other machine to the NT Tool, I can't just download it to the NT20S PT. And if I go to the PT configuration menu it will only allow me to chose another higher model of hardware. Earlier hardware models won't even show in the list. Is there any tool I can use to convert back the NT21 application to the NT20S?   Regards.
  4. NT Support Tool Ver 4.87

    Hi guys, I need to upload an NT31-123B-EV3 IHM (System Ver 4.2), but the software I have installed is NT Support Tool Ver 4.87, does not include the PT model I need (System Ver 4.2), has only NT31-V2 / V3 (System Ver 3.1 / 4.1).

  5. Hello All, I am using Wonderware InTouch 10.0 on Windows 7. It's slightly outdated, but its what we have. I am currently writing a script using the StartApp command to open a particular PDF file with the touch of a button. My script looks like StartApp("C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat Reader DC\Reader\AcroRd32 C:\1.pdf"); The first part of the command runs adobe and the second part of the command opens the particular file "1". What I need to figure out is, how do I insert a variable into a string. For example I have 55 files I may potentially need to open up, all named 1-55. So I need the file I am calling to be a variable inside of the string so I can call it inside of a loop. I do not want to copy and paste this code 55 times, I want to make the file name a variable (tagname that is a memory real between 1 and 55) so I can run it in a loop. I have only been using Wonderware for a month or so now, so If anything is confusing feel free to ask. Thanks!
  6. Legacy Factory Talk View Project

    Good morning everyone!   I tried to open an older project with Factory Talk View ME which was last opened with “FactoryTalk View Studio 5.0 “. The current version that I have installed and licensed is Release Number 9.00.00 (CPR 9 SR 9), Patch/Pack Number: 00, Build Number 241. Upon opening the project, I receive the following error message:   “The target HMI project is a legacy project (Factory Talk View v6.00 or earlier). Please use the legacy Tag Database utility to convert its tag database to the new format (Factory Talk View v6.10 or later) before opening the HMI project on a computer running on a 64-bit operating system. Refer to Help for guidance.”   I tried to use the Legacy Tag Database Conversion tool, selected “Create Factory Talk View Tag Database in new format”, then I selected “Factory Talk view Machine Edition”, selected the source folder and used the option to “Search Sub-folders”. After hitting the Next button it shows a list of available projects, but the one project that I try to convert is not listed.   Any ideas how to approach this? Is it possible to install multiple revision supports with Factory Talk View? So, far I always used the latest and just created the run time as an older version, if the panel I used wasn’t updated.   Please let me know what you guys think I should try.
  7. I have a coworker who swears up and down that he once came across a bit of software that would allow one to mount the cf card of an Allen-Bradley plc on a windows computer while it was still in place in the plc, or at least access the contents of the card. Has anyone ever come across this unicorn?

  11. Tool for I/O distribution

    Hi, I am looking for a tool to make I/O distribution in a PLC of around 1000 I/Os. I have a lot of redundant signals (2oo3, 2oo2) and I have to make a consistent distribution in the modules and racks considering some criteria: different channels of redundant signals in different racks, etc. Normally I have done this manually but I wonder if there is a tool to do this much faster and without mistakes. Builders from manufacturers, like TIA portal from Siemens or IAB from Rockwell, are of course very product oriented, they are a great help to select the right hardware, as far as I know they are not able to distribute redundant I/Os. Anybody knows if a tool like this is available?
  12. I'm in the process of converting an old Siemens S5 project (with no comments!) to ControlLogix. My first question is in the S5 there is the odd instruction with a '#' in it: - -] [ - - - - (#) - - - - ] [ - - - - -(F00.1) In old logix the # means a file, what does it mean in Siemens speak?   My next question, I have the rockwell document for structured text and also for converting S5 to logx, is there any other resource that would help me understand Siemens structured text?   As I chip away at the project I'll be posting more questions. Thanks in advance for your help.

  14. Powerflex 700 software

    I am told that Rockwell A B offers software to allow a laptop to hook up to a 700 drive and review the parameter. Does anyone have a link to the page or can point me into the right direction. I have an application where the end user would like to access the list via laptop and make changes if necessary Frank
  15. Hello! I am creating a project with Logix Designer, version 24. In the project I am using 1734-AENTR/B devices in etherner/IP-bus. I find out that there is only old versions of Logix Designer, only Major version 3 and 4 but the device that I have is the version 5. So I downloaded this EDS-file from Rockwell support-pages and installed it with EDS HW tool. After this, I can not choose this device 1734-AENTR/B with Major version 5. How to get this installed version to the project? After installation I have reboot my programming device and there is not RS Linx running in my computer.
  16. CPM1A Backup/password

    Hi all, I hope one of you kind people could help me: I have an Omron CPM1A CPU where the outputs are damaged. I have a new blank CPU and I would like to transfer the program, however, the UM is read-protected. The backup tool doesn't seem to cater for the CPM1A. Is there any other way the program could be transferred? The customer does not have the program or the password. I do not believe that I am interfering with any intellectual rights here because the OEM are long since departed and all I want to do is transfer the program, not modify it. Many thanks in advance. JG.
