  1. Mitsubishi safety relay

    Hello guys! A would like to set up a new inverter for my existing machine. I wanna follow the recomandation about the safety wiring. The only problem is I need one more, Z safety output. I checked, there is official expansion unit, and it says I have to only connect the EA, EB, EG, and EP terminals ? Do I have to connect again the X0, COM0 ; X1, COM1 terminals, because I want actually the same inputs, just I need one more safety relay output. I attached picture about it, thanks ahead. 
  2. Hello group, Is it possible to copy the data string from a 1734-IB8S to a datatype such as an INT or DINT? When setting up the I/O with a Safety PLC, the discrete I/O is setup within the Safety Program but it's contained within the program itself. To utilize the same I/O points in a Continuous task requires inserting and remapping the I/O points to essentially the same tags. If the I/O data could be moved/copied to a global datatype within the Safety Program, it seems like it would reduce any redundancy in the Continuous tasks.   Anyone done anything like that/ Suggestions?
  3. Hi All,Cx-Supervisor, NJ501-1340, Sysmac Gateway.I have been writing an update for a project and converting to this new controller.It's a pretty big project.Using a combination of Ladder and ST.Using Cx-Supervisor 3.5.I created some new Variables in Studio and made them Publish only.Started to create Points in Supervisor and made them I/O connected to the variables in Studio. No problems everything was connecting and working just fine.Then one of the points would not update. I could change it in the PLC and it would not change On the HMI.I deleted it and recreated it and it did the same thing. (sometimes points in Supervisor just stop working and recreating them fixes it).I then copied the control and pasted the old point into it and it did the same. Then other started to fail. Showing no reaction.I stopped the gateway and restarted, no help, I rebuilt the HMI, nope.The can check the tags in Sysmac gateway and they always change when the PLC changes but not the HMI.I checked the point maintenance in Supervisor and it would not change.I dumped all the affected variable in the PLC and in the HMI and recreated them. Then it got stranger.I could change some on the HMI and it would show in the PLC but not the other way.This is on Bools and UINTS.Stopped CX-server, tried using it with Win8 compatibility. nope.Pulling my hair out now. I should be coding but I'm trying to get the apps to work.Any ideas will be used with thanks.Peter
  4. Hello,  I am using Omron’s safety G7SA to relay 24 volt line. But the strange thing happening is that, one relay’s output is only 5 voltage, even the relay is on. I exchanged relays, it remains the same. Maybe the base socket is problematic?  Or is this just G7SA failure? 5v (exactly 4.96v) is strange. Please give me some advice.   Many thanks in advance.   Ting    
  5. Hi, So I have a problem, that BootP DHCP server doesn't find my 1734 AENTR series B and so I can't assign IP address to it. Been trying many things. Any advice? I'm new to AB and I guess it may be a really easy thing but so far I didn't find a solution. 
  6. I have a question regarding hazardous zone design. My control cabinet will be in safe area but I need to have e-stop and safety limit switch located in hazardous area, Div 1 Zone 1. I am assuming that I can use zener barriers or isolators between the field devices and safety relay. I just wonder if the safety relay will function properly with barriers in between? Also do I have to use 24VDC safety relay for this application? I don't know what voltage/current is present on the terminals connecting to safety devices.
  7. Hi. I have been up, down left and right in sysmac looking for the safety cpu's to add. If i open a project that has these devices, "Safety CPU device" shows in their toolbox window, while my project that does not have any safety added (trying to), does not have the "Safety CPU device" in toolbox. Any idea how to get it to show up so i can add the SCPU?  
  8. So im looking for recommendations on a safety PLC application, and I'd like some advice. So the addiction is zero motion detection, were using a 5069-L306ERMS2, 5069-IB8S, 5069-OBV8S. What id like to know if its feasible and safe. Can a zero speed detection code be written and safe in a PLC? I mean you can buy a zero speed detection safety relay, and two generic sensors , one PNP, and one NPN, and its just watching the pulses to happen in a predetermined manor and that both transition in the correct manor and that they both stop. So why or why not do this in a PLC? Any advice on how to do it, and considerations or advice?  What are peoples thoughts and or advice?
  9. Hello. We are looking for a safety scanner that has CIP safety(Ethernet IP) or fSoE (Safety over etherCAT) that is combability with sysmac and NX102 cpu. There is a lot of safety scanners on the market that support CIP safety and fSoE and I have tried to load in both EDS  and ESI files into sysmac with no succes. Of course the best option would be that OS32C safety scanner from Omron themselves would have build in support for Cip safety at the moment it only support ethernetIP to read out data for diagnostics.   Is there anyone that is running a safety scanner with sysmac with CIP safety or fSoE ?  If you do I would be very happy to receive the brand from the safety scanner manufacture.   /Best regards.
  10. Hello, My coworker and I are commissioning a new panel. We have a 1732-AENTR series C remote IO thats Rev 6.1. The project file from a previous identical panel has the module at rev5.3 in the project tree. I downloaded the AOP and ran the installer, it worked no issues. My co worker then did the same thing but now the module is unrecognized in the project tree and the module is missing after installing the AOP. Im concerned he corrupted something. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the AOP but no luck. It works on my computer but not his? TechConnect said something about corrupting the aop core. My coworker did the first install and he was getting confused about zip files and the virtual machine we run rsl5k on. Maybe he broke it? any suggestions?
  11. I have an analog output card 1734-OE2V and there is in the fault/actions page parameters for program mode. What is program mode and when it is activated? Fault mode is clear but... Program should be written the value, but when this happens?
  12. File Copy for NX/NJ

    Hello, I have used RSlogix5K for years and I am now creating NX/NJ PLC program.  Is there a similar command to 'COP', which can copy ALL the data from a structured variable to either another equivalent structured variable or to a data array of some kind - e.g. a byte array?  I thought the MemCopy command might do this but I believe it only handles arrays, not structured vars. Many Thanks Graeme
  13. Hi guys,  Can someone explain me what is the difference between SS1 and SS2 instruction ? I read the help but its not so helpful for me.  THank you so much.
  14. Hi,  Can someon help me with the following question. Like what makes a Kinetix 6000 drive a Guarded drive ? What type of safety stuff can you set to make it more safe.  Is it some parameter ? I am bit confused, by the manual. Should I active it in the PLC program or how ? Or it is some setting like a safe speed or torque.  I would really appreciate any help. Thank you so much ahead.  Have a great day, thanks for the reading.
  15. Hello guys!  Im using RS Logix 5000.  Can someone explain me what is the difference between when a servo is shutdown or disabled ?  I read the help but it says the same. I can assume it like when its shutdown, there is inside some circuit which is not allow the 3 phase for the drive.  Disabled is that when it have the 3 phase but nothing can happen ? Is there any difference with the break ? Like when its shutdown it can rotate until its slow down by itself or the break will be active ?  I tried to uplod a pic but it was not succesful. When you open a servo axis properties and you choose the Fault actions tab. You can find there these settings.    Thanks a lot. 
  16. Question from a PLC newbie....  We had a "blip" during a thunderstorm where we saw multiple signals on a 1734-IB8S point I/O transition from true to false for ~ 4 seconds (based on our DCS history from a serial connection).  There are several other modules on the backplane, and we only saw state change on this one card.  The 24VDC power is sourced from T-0 for points 0-3, and T-2 for points 4-7, so we don't suspect a short.  It's been suggested that we either had an I/O card "blip", or temporary loss of power to our field contacts (limit switches) caused by dust/vibration of the removeable terminal block.  Our controller is a 1756-L73S GuardLogix 5570.  My question is should I expect to see an I/O fault in the Minor Fault history (we did not)?  Would an I/O fault necessarily show up in this history, or does it need to be configured somewhere? Our points on this card are set up as single points with test pulse from T-0 and T-2.  We are reading status of limit switches in the field. Thank you in advance for any response. Kathy  
  17. Hi. I would like to ask that like you guys are when using a kinetix servo motor what type of safety conditions are possible ? I found a fault actions label. Is there anything else like between the parameters or so ? Thanks ahead. 
  18. Safety PLC R08SFCPU

    Good day Guys I have been working with Mits for a while but i am new to the GX works 3 setupp. We are looking at using R08SFCPU PLC with a RJ71GF11-T2 for CC-Link IE Field in order to do safety. No i think i understand the normal IO on this device but the safety i just cant get to a point to understand what is happening. When i try to address it SA\X0.... then it says it is invalid. Does anyone have an idea how to do the setup for safety or a manual that describes a bit in detail.   Thanks
  19. Hello All,    I have had no luck sorting through Pilz datasheets on this CPU to find cable / software to connect/upload the program. Any insight?   We are upgrading this to the CPU 4000 series - it will use DeviceNet. Will this node number / memory allocation be setup within the 'PSS 4000 Firmware' software? Where do I find a guide for this?   Thank you.
  20. Simatic pc to simple pc with profibus card

    Hi every one, One of my machine i have to fix , has simatic pc unit installed that causing too much trouble  and client want to replace it with simple pc with additional profibus card installed in PCI slot, is there any way to configure image of simatic pc in new simple pc
  21. Hi everyone, I have an annoying fault on my Kinetix 5700 drive: M01-Safety Feedback. I know this fault is generated by  the SFX instruction in my Safety program that sets tag: "Axis.SFXFault" to 1. The problem is that the instruction is NOT in Fault (Fault code 1 = no fault). This error occurred after Safety encoder 843ES lost it's IP address. I used Bootp to set it gain. And reset the SFX instruction. I can see the encoder in studio 5000 rev 32.12 running and ok.  Does anyone encountered this problem? How can I clear the fault?   Thanks
  22. Folks, we have a set of Mitsubishi Q12PRHCPU (redundant) running effortless since many years. CPU-A as standby and CPU-B as Control. Recently we noticed BATT low alarm on CPU-B. So we arranged for a spare battery Q6BAT and started the procedure as per manual(attached procedure and flow chart). We did memory copy from Control to standby (as prescribed precaution) and did the Reset of Standby PLC CPU-A. Memory copy from B to A completed successfully 100%. But the BACKUP LED did not turn Green from Red & Error LED kept flickering on standby CPU-A. CPU-B remain in Control but backup LED turned RED. From system monitoring we found that there is a Error 6000 (FILE DIFF.) observed in One of the .QPG (program 00-MDBUS.QPG). We tried to reset it but were not successful. We are surprised that why does the program differs when it was copied from CPU-B to CPU-A using the memory copy. Still we did the VERIFY and found no difference between the programs in CPU-A & CPU-B.  Can anyone explain the cause of this issue and the solution. Please note that the CPU-B is still in control and plant is running. Backup LED on both CPU are red which means (redundancy loss) and error LED on standby CPU-A is flickering RED. There is no error in the CPU-A (Control) -we checked this using the GX Developer. Also attached here are the image of the error and error help. Thanks in advance.

  23. Hello, In my ladder program I have 7 different arrays (containing REAL values) all members of a structure and I wish to extract certain values from the arrays and put them on another structure consisting of REAL values (not arrays). Which is the best way to do that ? I tried AryMove command but I get an error "Conversion from REAL to ANY_ELEMENTARY[], ENUM[], STRUCT[] is impossible. To get a better understanding of my structures and arrays here is an example: Struct wheel_data Global variable SWheel of wheel_data rad[1...10] of real, vary[1...10] of real, varx[1...10] of real struct. 2 wheel Global variable Wheel1, .... , wheel10 of wheel rad REAL, vary REAL, varx REAL what I wish to do is to copy Swheel.rad[1]  to wheel1.rad,  Swheel.vary[1] to wheel1.vary, Swheel.varx[1] to wheel1.varx 2nd structure Swheel.rad[2]  to wheel2.rad,  Swheel.vary[2] to wheel2.vary, Swheel.varx[2] to wheel2.varx until I fill all 10 wheel structure instances with values Thanks in advance.
  24. In CX-Programmer software, we have the ability to make a bunch of copies of the same rung with the "Address Incrememntial Copy" Function. Does Sysmac Studio have a similar function?
