  1. I have a machine controlled by a ControlLogix Processor with three ControlNet Cards. Right now the Logix5000 Program is stored as D:\Machine.ACD. and the ControlNet files are D:\Slot5.xc , D:\Slot7.xc and D:\Slot9.xc. For reasons I won't go into on anther system there is no D:\ drive so when I open E:\Machine.ACD  it of course complains the the D:\Slot#.xc files can't be found. When I change the file on the RSNetworx Pane of properties to E:\Slot#.xc it says something about modifying a running module warning. The D:\ file and E:\file are identical.  If the machine is running is there any real risk? How best to resolve this dilemma.
  2. Hi! I would like to ask your help. I want to know more about the communcation systems what allen bradley use. Most important for me, is Ethernet IP communication, Controlnet communication, Sercos (servo) communication, maybe devicenet communication.  I know I can find some manulas on the web, but I thought I ask it here too, maybe you guys have some more documents which is contain more information. Every information is highly appreciated. Thank you very much guys.  
  3. Hi,  We have 2 x 1756-L71 Processors joined together with a pair of 1756-RM2/A redundancy modules. The rack also has 1756-EN2T and 1756-CN2R modules.    I was called to the site after a power outage and found that the link between the 2 CPUs had failed with one displaying no program and the link modules with error lights. The ControlNet cards also had red lights on both channels and all of the FlexIO devices were red Xed in RSLinx. I went down the path of trying to get the CPUs up, and running but this was a red herring as I was informed that if the CPU's get out of Sync and have any faults on the cards the secondary one will lose its project. The ControlNet cards were giving a no Active Keeper fault? So we went down the path of the ControlNet cards, I initially thought that it was that the cards had lost their configuration files but we isolated the coax network to just the 2 cards, and the CP's and ControlNet cards came back up online. We joined the network back onto the ControlNet cards and found a faulty 1794-ACNR15/CFlexIO module. Once we replaced this the other devices (48 devices on the network) were not being discovered on the network. We went around and power cycled the IO units and then they started to Auto discover and the site came back up - Note CPUs were in Program mode at the time and I flicked them to Run and the site came back online. Does anyone have any information on why they needed to be power cycled and is there likely to be an underlying issue other than the single failed module pulling the network down?
  4. Hi Y'all, I have been working on a drive upgrade.  I am going from a 1336 impact to a PF 753.  I changed everything over on the Map I/O tree to ethernet.  The question I have Control Net is in demo mode. We are waiting om a tech support contract with software subscriptions to go through.  Will I still be able to download the logix 5000 program that works with the CNET configuration files?  Also I deleted the drive off the config file.  Is there anything I am missing other than drive parameters?

  8. I have a PLC 5 program that is acting as a master controller for several other various PLCs.  I have found where an input is coming in off of ControlNet.  I went to the relevant ControlLogix program but I cannot find where this output is being written to.  I am fairly new to Rockwell as I have come from a Melsec background.  Any help would be appreciated.

  11. I'm trying to transfer an application file to a PanelView 1400e and I'm having some difficulty. We currently have 4 of these in operation on machinery and we acquired a spare that I'm trying to get ready. All use the same exact application. I tried using a memory card but none of the PanelViews recognize any of the cards I do have at the moment so that option is out (though at one time we did transfer the applications this way so we did have at least one card that worked in the past). I was able to extract the application file from one of the PVs via Transfer Utility 32 on Windows XP. I am unable to transfer it back to the spare PV. I am using a 9 for 9 straight through serial cable on COM1 of the laptop to the 9 pin DB connector on the back of the PV. I match settings between the PV and the TU32 (baud rate, parity, error). I put the PV on Transfer Application screen on the Serial tab. I open up TU32 and choose the application file (approximately 86kb in size). If I select memory partition 1 for the destination, I get a dialog that pops up telling me that partition 1 is full and it shows me the size and free space on both partition 1 and partition 2. The size for partition 2 matches what I see on the PV on the Terminal Information screen (approximately 2200kb in size and same is free). When I then select partition 2 for the destination and click OK, it asks if I want to format the destination. If I click NO, the transfer fails because "User did not format the destination". When I click Yes to format, the PV starts formatting partition 2 and the progress bar goes up to 100%, then a message comes up that the format is complete, waiting for application transfer. On the TU32 screen, the format progress goes up to 11% then hangs and eventually reports that the format failed. I've done this a number of times and it is always 11%. However, when I click OK and then go back to the main screen on TU32 and once again select to transfer, the PV screen goes into transfer mode with a progress bar as does the TU32. No progress is ever made and eventually I get the 4209 error. 4209 error means the TU32 and PV are not communicating, basically. But I'm confused as to why they initially do communicate but only get to a specific point each time before communications stop. Any ideas? EDIT: Once I get the 4209 error, I click OK, and go back to the main TU32 screen. If I immediately click to transfer again, the progress bar on the PV disappears and a message comes up saying File Download failed-Ready for Transfer. If I click to Transfer again, the progress bar reappears but still no progress and this process repeats. Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.
  12. Hello, We have a FX3G connected to a FX3U-ENET-ADP inside a main cabinet. We are then using that master PLC to collect data from 2 other fx3g plcs in a node:node serial network. I was assigned a small project of pricing out some wireless adapters so we can upload/download to the two slave plcs. My question is, is it possible to upload/download programs to/from the slave plcs through the ENET adapter and serial network in the main plc? It would save us some money if possible. thanks.

  14. I have an issues with various Powerflex 700S drives tripping out periodically on Net Loss DPI P5 fault (F# 59). These drives are set up on the same ControlNet network to communicate with the Contrologix 5563 processor. The drives will reset easily and the process restarted, but it is a nuisance and time is lost resetting the equipment. Any advice will be appreciated.
  15. PLC download problem

    Hi, when I download on PLC (R04), sometimes for example. TON timer's output .Q is automatically set to true even though input is false (also on .ET time is 4h ...??). Also, sometimes some bool variables are also set to true even though they are not set by any kind of logic. However, when I physical reset the PLC (power cycle), mentioned problems don't exist. Does it mean that software reset isn't working entirely correct and I need to reset physical PLC (power cycle) every time after I download on PLC? Regards Luka
  16. What is the best way to get to the configure screen when the mer file is set to auto run on the hmi. I need to get this file out before this screen finally quits on me. 
  17. Hi guys! Can anybody help me? I have an existing controlnet network. How can I connected a new module? Like an 1794 IB16. What should I need to do after I connected the new module? One more question: What's the difference if I do not connected the new module right after the last module, but I connected between already existing module. Then what should I need to configure. If anybody want to help, please write like step by step. I'm a beginner, but I want to imporve myself. Thank you for your help. I almost forget, I need to work with Allen-Bradley PLC, and I have RSLogix 5000 software.

  22. Hi All, I need to add an 1756-IF8 to my controlnet on a L61 PLC. I have already added the device to RSLogix 5000 and inhibited it for the moment. I have RSNetWorx for Controlnet version 11 as it is an older project. What do i need to do to schedule this device on controlnet? I've been told you need to be online with RSNetWorx and then do an upload, what else do you need to do to schedule this device. Any help greatly appreciated.   Thanks Stu
  23. I am in the learning phase of HMI and PLC programing and am trying to use some of the hardware that has been donated to me. I have an AB panelview 300 micro terminal and a Micrologix 1000 Plc (they are not tethered yet). I have constructed a small test board with everything mounted to it and have successfully written and downloaded a simple project to the plc with timers, etc.   Now I need to find a way to program the terminal to make changes to the program.   I am looking for some free panelbuilder 32 or anything that will allow me to program the terminal and use it.   Can anyone help me? All help will be greatly appreciated!
  24. I have read that it is possible, in CXDesigner, to download the program from the computer onto a memory card, and then download from the memory card into the HMI terminal. Is a similar thing possible with CXProgrammer, and PLCs? It would be quite useful, for the purposes of updating the program on a customer PLC that is located overseas, when the customer does not own a laptop with CXProgrammer installed.
