  1. Hi all is it possible to use the internal date of a plc in a function block without setting it as an input for the function block? for instance i have some logic to do something inbetween lets say 10:00 and 16:00 o'clock am i able to use those internals bits of the plc where the time is stored without inputting them to the function block and using them internally?   thanks
  2. Hello there, I am new to OMRON so need some help to communicate two PLC over FINS.   Here are the description of the system... (IO Table image is attached)   PLC1-  CJ2M-CPU33 IP- 10.113.218.34 SUBNET-255.254.0.0 UNIT NO - 00 (set the dial available on the CPU in HEX) NODE - 22 (set the 2 dials available on the CPU in HEX) PLC2-  CJ2M-CPU33 IP- 10.113.218.35 SUBNET-255.254.0.0 UNIT NO - 01 (set the dial available on the CPU in HEX) NODE - 23 (set the 2 dials available on the CPU in HEX)     Now, what i have to do is to transfer the D100 to D110 from PLC1 to PLC2's D200 to D210 and Transfer the D100 to D110 from PLC2 to PLC1's D200 to 210.   I have tried RECV and ECHRD blocks but didn't succeed yet.   Two CPU are connected over ethernet via a industrial switch.   Can you help me to achieve data transmission please...
  3. setting date cp1l

    Hi all im currently using the DATE instruction to set the PLC's date and time via the HMI which is an NB7W which i have working but i am currently setting each byte of the words being used in DATE by using numerical inputs in NB designer and entering integer and decimal to set these bits in DATE and its a bit ugly to say the least. is there a way on nb designer to only modify bytes or am i going to have to used full words on nb designer and use MOVD in cx programmer to assign them to their correct byte CURRENT SETUP always on DATE using d50=d53  
  4. Hello everyone,  Someone know, how to read timer data from omron PLC CP1E in HMI NB3Q-TW00B? I tried write macros for HMI program, but I have some error about macro in program. How I understand, this HMI model don't support data reading from plc timer TIM in cx programmer? But how I can write macros and set it for recognizing in HMI?   
  5. Can't open cxp file

    Hello. Does anyone can open the following file and send me the laddder or instruction list? I haven't the CX-Programmer. Thank you very much to all. Cheers! Luis J.   T1.cxp
  6. HI everyone i was wondering if i could connect a cp1l-el to 2 different NB screens running 2 different programs. we have a main line HMI which displays the health of the entire line with its own cj2m plc, we also have a machine which is part of the line that has its own plc(CP1l-EL) and HMI. is it possible for me to include the cp1l in the main lines HMI so that it can display the status of that machine? or will it cause issues because it already has a program attached to it. i dont know exactly how the NB program works does it just read the bits of data it needs to or is it constantly looking at the whole plc data list?
  7. Timers in structured text

    HI everyone ive decided to try and use a structured text function block for an machine output calculation, to put it simply i want the machine to say how many units its outputting per minute so i thought it would be much nicer to have a basic maths Structured text block rather than a long bit of ladder for some simple instructions. i have 2 inputs, one is the start of the machine cycle, the other is the end of the machine cycle. every cycle is one unit output. i want to time the gap between input 1 and 2 then just a bit of simple maths 60/(cycle_time) for uniters per minute. i want this to be to 2 decimal places for a reasonable resolution. the main problem im having is the timers in structured text, im a little confused how they work i would do this in ladder by having input 1 set a bit and then input 2 resetting this bit(i assume i can set a bit by using an if statement [if input 1 true, timer{bool}true]) this timer bool would then activate the timer, again how i would do it in ladder would be to have a timer1 count down from &500 then use a maths block for 500-timer1 and this would give time elapsed this is the bit i really dont know how to do in structured text and would appreciate any help in the matter. otherwise i can just do it in ladder   added my idea of what it would look like IF Cycle_start=TRUE THEN     Timer_start:= TRUE; ELSIF Cycle_end=TRUE THEN     Timer_start:= FALSE; END_IF; TIMHX(Timer_start, Cycle_timer,Timer_time); Cycle_time_bin:= 500-Timer_time; Cycle_time_real:= UINT_TO_REAL(Cycle_time_bin); Cans_per_min:= 60.0/Cycle_time_real;
  8. Hello, CJ2M CPU-32 to IAI motion controller through ethernet/ip I'm working on programming electric actuators to pick up parts from a tray. I will have x (row) and y (column) coordinates that I need to update to move the actuators. So to go through the whole tray I would have to use nested loops. (below what i'm trying to achieve if i was doing it in C++)                                           6 Rows and 6 Columns, palettizing                                           data rows&columns DWORD (Row1,row2,row3...row6; col1,col2...col6)                                           c++ code                                           for i=0,i++,i<6;                                               rowData = row                                               for i=0,i++,i<6;                                                   colData = col                                                   execute movement                                                   wait for confirmation                                               end                                           end I have a way of doing it but it will require a lot of repetitive lines and typing every step, and I was wondering if there is a way on every iteration to increment the data location instead of the contents. In the picture below you can see the example where the goal is to copy data from D8100 to D8000, then in next step from D8102 to D8000, then from D8104 to D8000 and so on. So far in the documentation I was only able to find how to increment contents. Is it even possible to do what I want to?
  9. Hello Sir/Ma'am, Hope you and your family are safe in this Covin-19 Pandemic.   One of my client have a machine in their ceramic industry which has Omron PLC System. Here I am describing the PLC Hardware Structure. (CP1H-X40-DT1-D-SC) + (CP1W-40EDT) + (CP1W-DA041) CP1H-X40-DT1-D-SC (Main CPU Unit) CP1W-40EDT (First Expansion Module, on right side of the CPU) CP1W-DA041 (Second Expansion Module on right side of the CP1W-40EDT)   Client shutdown the machine before a month due to Corona Pandemic, and today restarted the machine.   Now the problem at the restart of machine... Analog Output of 0-10V DC are not sourcing from the attached analog output module for any of channels. (Used to control speed of AC Drive) We have checked the program, and verify that the program is moving the value in analog output register address, but still no output signal at the module.(Checked Using Multimeter) We have same machine at another factory so we have tried to replace the all 2 expansion module and observed that the first Digital Module is Working properly but only last analog output module is getting problem again.   I don't know much about OMRON PLC Programming so seeking for the help regarding this.   OEM have moved the data in CIO 106 for generating analog output, as well OEM has move #8099 in CIO 104 and CIO 105 at the first scan of program. I don't know very much about this programming, that's why i refer some manuals but didn't succeed yet.   Kindly help me out if possible... I have attached backup of program as well for reference...   Thanks...   Bobin Feeder.cxp

  11. FWRIT(701) To Memory Card

    Hi Can anyone please help with the following issue. Equipment  PLC - CJ2M-CPU33 Setup is being used to log distance measurements from a conveyor belt to a compact flash card in the PLC I have successfully set this up and it is working by writing values to a stack then when this is full, changes stack and writes the data in the previous stack to the card. The FWRIT command has the control word #3D00 (Comma-Delimited, Return every 16 fields, Append, Memory Card) The problem I am having is with the data in the CSV file, I am logging typically 300K lines with 16 values.   Towards the end of logging the data in the CSV file will start to return every 5 values instead of 16 which is just painful to re-format. I have attached an image of the Excel data to explain better. My Two stacks are  Stack 1 - E0_0   -   E0_16003 Stack 2 -  E0_16010   -   E0_32013   Thanks for any help.
  12. Hi all ive been given a small test cabinet to play around with and test on, it has a cp1l-el plc and a mx2 inverter, ive been looking at how to control the inverter and cant seem to find a way to program it how i want. the plc has no modbus connector so it cannot be done that way i want to be able to set the frequency and be able to start and stop the inverter through the control pins. let me know if this is possible, thanks
  13. Hi all ive been trying to figure out if theres a way to close pop up screens from the plc when the machine i have get an error of some kind a pop up screen appears on the HMI(NB3Q-TW01B), i currently have it so that if all errors on the machine are resolved it returns to the main menu which was fine until i added a couple of new errors where them being resolved might take someone out of a screen they are working on. so a close screen function for each individual error would work alot better but im not too sure how to go about it. thanks to anyone who can help
  14. new to mr.plc....also first post on forum.. i have used omron software for years but i just came across brackets in an  instruction. i understand how the MOV works..moves data to a destination but what does the bracketed [dxxxx] mean. move to both locations? or something else? i need to understand this for future project. thanks also if there are rule to posting or if i did something wrong please advise.
  15. Hello everybody, I reinstalled CX-programmer yesterday and installed it again and it worked without any problem. I wanted to open CX-programmer this morning, but it didn't. However, I can run CX-P as Administrator, but then I don't have access to my files. CX-P gives this screen when trying to open it: Does anyone knows how to solve the problem? I already reinstalled CX-P today and also restarted my PC. Thanks in advance, Olivier  
  16. No option for CJ varient PLC

    Ive only just realized Im missing a lot of options for varients of PLC's, i need to be able to access the CJ series, is there some setting i need to change somewhere? im on cx programmer version 9.5, i cant find anything about this thanks  
  17. floating point shift register

    hi all, i'm currently trying to shift register some data in the floating point (double word) format, just for an example i,m using a 0-20mA 0-40 bar pressure sensor to gather information from a can filler and want to log the data for lets say the previous 20 cans. i understand how the shift register works and can get it to work with single word just fine, im using floating point to make my life a bit easier by using sleepy wombat's scaling function block, i need decimal points as i will be expecting reading around 4.5 or so bar and expected to be within .2 tolerence this will then have to displayed on a HMI, which i assume will be easy enough
  18. ad041 analog expansion resolution

    hi everyone, ive recently started working at a company who uses omron PLC's im a bit more familiar with siemens i used in university.   one of my first tasks at work was to go through the current plc programs we have installed, ive noticed going through them that the previous engineer doesnt use the whole resolution of the analog input, i was wandering if this was some sort of practice im not familiar with or if they just have done it their own way. for example the ad041 expansion unit has a resolution of 1/6000, which would be  scale of 0-1770 in hex, however in the programs im looking through this top end hex value is always listed as 1700.   im assuming there some safety precaution or something that i don't know about, thanks for any answers in advance * the image is of the data points being put into the SCL function  
  19. Hello there, Today i have commissioned my first project with OMRON make PLC. Model: CP1L-EM40DT1D. (CX-Programmer) I have 2 built in 0-10V Analog Inputs on the plc. for analog input no-1 i get the digital value of 0-1000 in specific plc register address corresponding the 0-10V. (Factory setup) But today on site, i have noticed that some miner value of 0 to 50 is always coming and fluctuating very fast in that register, however the transmitter are genetaring 0.0V only (I have checked using digital multimeter with high precision) PLC and Transmitter are already grounded and all the cable connections are tight as well. so how to overcome this high fluctuating value ? is there any setting to filter the input ?

  22. Control Panel

    Is it possible to view the values / states of all inputs, outputs and workbits (e.g. 64.00 through 64.15 on Omron CQM1 PLC) on a single screen or control panel within CX-Programmer software?  I'm trying to troubleshoot some ladder logic that I wrote and need to know the values of 5 or 6 inputs/outputs/workbits simultaneously.  Having to scroll up and down through my ladder logic repeatedly does not work well with code that changes state every 5-10 seconds or so. Any help is welcome.
  23. Trying to connect our old Sysmac C200HE PLC to the CX-Programmer software however, failed connection appears. We are using a USB-Serial connection and have set up the comms on the device manager. To try and connect to the PLC we are using the Auto connect function, selecting the usb-serial connection and selecting the comms the same as the host network. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  24. Genst,   Could You please advise how can I connect to CJ1M CPU12 - shown in attached picture. DB9 port is used for communication with remote input/outpus rack. There is this small portabove DB9, but first I don't know what cable should I use and seconde I don't know if it is possible to usi this port when PLC talks on DB9 with remote input/output rack. I want to connect to CX-programmer to be able to online troubleshoot PLc program.   thanks in advance. tomasz
