  1. Is there an efficient tool to manage and validate CX-Programmer addressing. Requirements: - Highlight Duplicate Address allocation - Compact/Defrag address range to avoid wasting memory space. Note: - Any FINS addressing will have to be reconfigured - This approach assumes symbol use rather than direct addressing in the logic.
  2. Hello, Good Day All. I am facing this issue while I am going to copy old plc to new plc. but old plc having 4965 steps, once going execute this program to new plc its showing more than 8000 steps. please suggest on this. PFA.
  3. It will de nice to have an option for getting a cross-reference report for the AT address used on programs , as is now its easy to make mistakes double setting the same AT address on a program , specially this days that supplies of NA screens are not always availiable and using memory address is necessary for NB screens and SCADA communication and is difficult to keep track of the used address on a program , some times in global or in internals, right now its easy to make a mistake and use the same address twice , and this wont be detected on the compiling
  4. Hello fellas. I am having trouble with understanding the communication between my AB PLC and my Balluff BNI0085, which is connected through an IFM AL1120 IO-link deivce. I am currently running a setup with an AB PLC (L18ER) that is connected to a local network through a network switch. I have connected my IFM AL1120 to this switch, and the IP configuration for both devices have been completed. The communications are made by using two add-on instructions, supplied by Rockwell: The BMC_AOI_PROC_BNI0085 instruction (For the Balluff smartlight), and the Generic_4PORT_IOL (For the IFM IO-link). I have additionally been supplied an ACD-file by my ex-coworker, containing a program that administrates the communication between the two add-on instructions. I have attached the routine from this as a PDF. What works: I can go online with my PLC, and by using the parameter "BNI0085_Mapped_Data.O" I can control the smartlight. I can change the settings for light-mode (Segment, Level, Runlight, Flexible), and the different parameters for each mode. What's the problem: When I change the Mapped_data.O to run in level-mode, I can adjust the light to show the level desired. When I try to adjust the level above halfway, the light switches off, and can't seem to be steady lit (Light turns on/off, random dimming). I speculate this might be due to the small power supply for the IO-link device, and the setting for brightness is not included in the AOI for the smartlight.  I therefore tried to adjust the brightness by connecting through the LR-device software from IFM(The same used to configure the IO-link). I added the IODD (IO-link device description, "Balluff-BNI_IOL-802-102-Z037-20190215-IODD1.1.xml") for the smartlight, and connected the device, which is discovered in the device list once the IO-link IP has been entered. I can read the values from both the IO-link and the BNI0085 devices, and I can write parameter settings to the IO-link device. Whenever I try to edit any parameter for the smartlight, I get the error attached. I am currently trying to follow the SmartLight userguide for the Balluff, as it describes the brightness setting as being in the ISDU index 51hex, but I don't know how this pertains to the AOI.   I am in over my head with this issue, and I don't know what information is needed or what is unnecessary. I've tried to include all that I think is relevant, I'll gladly provide what might be missing.  Any help is greatly appreciated, cheers :)   Balluff_smartlight_com_MainRoutine.pdf
  5. Hi all:   Hope somebody will help me with the below error encounter on the NA. I mapped a external device (NJ PLC) variable (which is a structure) to a NA Global variable and the structure is automatically created in the NA data type as expected. I then create a new NA global variable and defined its data type as the auto created structure. However i observe the created new NA global variable is highlighted with an error "a data type cannot be used by both mapped and unmapped variable ....." ( pls refer to the attached screen).  I have found and view on the Youtube this video :"Introduction To The NA DataTypes" (link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZxWnVn1CSY). that clearly show the "imported" structure can be used for unmapped NA global variable even there is some variable already mapped to external device variable (starting from the 3:50minutes mark of the video). In my NA program i would need to create such unmapped variable for my logic use. Also i observe that i was unable to delete the auto created structure from the NA Data Types even after i deleted all variables that are defined with that specific structure. How can i delete such auto created structure in case i want to clear off some of those unused data types. I am using Sysmac Studio version 1.30.0.17. The HMI Device created is the NA5-9W00 (version 1.11)          
  6. Hi, I am using IQ-R Series "R16ENCPU" With Inbuild CC-LINK IE FIELD "RJ71EN71" and attached CC-LINK "RJ61BT11".

Refresh settings and Network Config Settings are done, Below attached the pics for reference. I cannot able to find the problem, Can anyone help me in this.  
  7. Hi I'm trying to set up Modbus RTU communication between FX3U PLC and a weigh module. I would use the ADPRW command using 0X03 to read the 16 bit Holding Register but in the weigh module the Data Address/Holding Register of the value I want to get is 400047 - 400048. How to translate the value in 16 bit?   Thanks, Fabio
  8. Hi all. This is hopefully an easy fix. I have words and bit values in a recipe that I am trying to show in a logging file. I can get numerical values to show but I can't get the word devices from the recipe to show up on the logging file. Eg my devices from recipe set as a string starting with device gd60120 and in the logging file I want gd60120 to show the word, they are both set as unicode.  
  9. Hello all, I need to read device memory mostly I need to read R registers from PLC L26. I read device data, but inside of table, I can't find R or ZR registers. Can you help me?  What I did wrong?   BR KS

  11. Hey all - I am stumped and looking for some assistance. I have a project in studio 5000, v.32 where I have some ABB drives that are not recognized. I've installed the EDS files, exact same one my co-worker besides me did, and mine will not go recognized and it is driving me crazy! I've done it while online with the PLC and offline, still to no avail. I've also installed the EDS files by going through Tools>EDS Hardware Installation and by right-clicking on the ABB drive in the controller organization tree and registering EDS file. Thanks for any assistance, -k
  12. 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?
  13. CCLink

    Hi guys, I've just completed pre-commissioning on a Mitsubishi project which uses CCLink. My remit was to get the CCLink network up and running which I eventually did but not without issues. Basically, my problem was to do with the number of bits and registers consumed by a station. I read in a manual that each station consumes 32 bits and 4 registers for read and 32 bits and 4 registers for write. On my network I had 3 ST1H-BT modules occupying 2 stations each and 3 non Mitsubishi devices occupying 4 stations apiece. My RWr address starts at W300 and RWw at W500. Like I said everything matched up and I/O checks completed successfully. My question is, and I've trawled through the manuals looking for an answer, how is the number of points calculate? For example my non-Mitsubishi devices they occupy 4 stations, Expanded Cyclic Setting is Octuple and the number of points is 896. How is the 896 calculated? Thanks in advance
  14. Hi everyone My system consists of 2 main stations with 2 CPU Q06UDEH and connected together by QJ71GP21S-SX module but I don't know how to link the address between these 2 CPU together? so can anyone help me? Thanks so much   
  15. We have an iQ-r R08cpu that will not display some labels or addresses.  The PLC and the machine it controls run as expected.  However, when we read from the PLC, some of the labels and addresses are not shown.  Although it runs as expected, we are hesitant to make any changes or write to the PLC. There is a screenshot attached.  Any advice or solutions for this?
  16. Hi folks, I'm trying to communicate with an old CompactLogix L35E via Ethernet. I have already establish communication via DF1 Serial port and was able to go online but I Do not know the IP address to communicate via Ethernet. Can someone please tell me how I could determine the IP Address or create a new one ? This Controller was remove from a working machine. Any help will be highly appreciated. Thanks, Anthony.  
  17. hallo all, I want to ask if I click "read PLC Data" the "points" will appear, I use the QY18A output module that uses 8 points but there is no choice, the smallest is only 16 points.  so I can't put 148 in the "start XY" column ... will it affect the I / O address in the program?
  18. Device point error between Parameter and PLC

    Hello all, I am a beginner with PLCs programming. I have an issue on GX Developer programming software from Melsoft trying to program my Mitsubishi Q-series PLC. CPU is Q03UDCPU. When the program is written and I try to upload it to the PLC, with the write to PLC window, I check -Program -- MAIN and -Prameter -- PLC/Network/Remote, click EXECUTE and a message appears : "Device point that is set in parameter is not match the device point in PLC". I can't fix it. In Parameter - PLC Parameter - Q parameter setting (window) - I/O assignment tab : I have (see image). Whe I use CHECK button it says there is no error. The X41 input device is plugged on slot 1/00. I am making this folowing the instructions a PDF I found on the Mitsubishi electric's wesite : Q-series basic course (for GX Developer). Thanks for the help, A. S.
  19. Hey everyone! New member here, and this site has always been a big help!  I try to help other folks too, but a lot of guys are super quick on here.   I've got a problem using some obscure components. I inherited a sensor network at work that uses Panasonic S-Link and I need to read them from a Q-Series. Panasonic makes a module that slots into the Q Series called an SL-VMEL-Q that I have.   My question is:  Did I do everything correctly on my Mitsubishi side? I put it into the parameters as an intelligent module with 64 points and I put the correct address in for the start I/O. Is that all I have to do?  This is the first time I used a module that wasn't on the drop down list when you add one in GX Works 2.   I can read and write to the buffer memory, but I can't get the unit to send to or receive from the sensors. I think the problem is that there is no end unit on the S-Link line (I don't know if it's just a terminating resistor or what), but it previously worked without one, so I can't be certain.
  20. GX Works 2

    Hello everyone! Can anyone suggest to take all the Input and Output (digital) status at a time in a single file for backup in gx works2 in FX2N PLC. I need to confirm that all required IO are in perfect condition before start operating the machine. Also I plan to design a troubleshooter to find problem.
  21. Lets say i have a PLC, with a name PLC1 with IP/Subnet of 10.125.34.243/255.255.255.0 I have to communicate this PLC1 with 2 other PLC's, PLC2 and PLC3 PLC2 with IP/Subnet of 10.125.34.10/255.255.0.0 PLC3 with IP/Subnet of 10.125.46.10/255.255.0.0 I imagine that, all these three are in different subnets, and so there should be no communication at all, but when i tested it, PLC1 to talking to/from PLC2 and not PLC3.  anyone know the answer to this ? How does it talk to PLC2 with different subnet, but not PLC3 which is in different subnet as well. 
  22. Please assist me with the following; regarding the ME96SSHA-MB Power meter data transition with Melsec-Q series PLC; We acquire to read various values on dedicated Modbus storage address registers at the simultaneous into a Melsec-Q series PLC via Modbus (TCP or RTU)  for calculation purposes. Naturally, since the reading of these variables are to provide accurate instantaneous results, it is a requirement that these values are to be read at one scan.   However, as can be seen below, there is a gap in address register range – of which, if all of these are scanned simultaneously, yields an exception error when read. This error is only avoided by scanning these data sets separately – which is not ideal for our application – since accuracy in calculations is imperative.
