  1. PanelView 1400e Download Issue

    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.
  2. 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.
  3. I am looking for how others have set up vertical axis motions using the Kinetix 5700 servo system. I have a 2 axis pick/place unit with a horizontal axis (X @ 2500mm) and vertical axis (Z @ 1200mm) that works as designed during normal operation. X axis has no holding brake and Z axis has a factory installed 24vdc to unlock brake. There is a GuardLogix L81ES control system that handles the safety and control. On pressing E-stop/opening Gates the vertical axis will stop the motion, apply the brake and hold with no problems. (2198-D032-ERS3 Drive, 2198-P031 Bus Power, MPL-B430P-MJ72AA X Axis, MPL-B330P-MJ74AA Z axis) The issue that I ran into was an accidental download of the program without activating the e-stop and the vertical axis dropped unexpectedly when entering program mode on the processor. I am aware that this instance was my fault as the programmer, however I am also concerned that this might occur again in the future if the controller ever enters fault mode or someone else completes a download. I have done some investigation with the "ProgrammedStopMode" parameter on this single motion axis and attempted all 5 options and the vertical axis still has a free fall drop for a second before the brake grabs hold - so evidently this is not working for me. (Page 24 of Vertical Load/Holding Brake manual - https://literature.rockwellautomatio...t003_-en-p.pdf) I am curious if there needs to be something done elsewhere as the X and Z axis are set up as coordinated axis? I also am unaware if I need to preform some action/parameter with the bus power supply for this? The current state of the machine as it sits now is preforming a MSF in manual mode after 5 seconds of inactivity or 30 seconds in auto mode. This axis is usually in demand every ~22 seconds. This will shut down the axis after preforming a brake test on the vertical load and seems to function OK, however it is still in the back of my mind the issues mentioned previously if we ever enter a controller fault while indexing. Thanks for your insight
  4. FPWin GR Problem

    Hi, I use Panasonic FP0R 32T PLC. Usually i have no problems to upload or download program to PLC. But, right now the Software, FPWin GR cannot perform the download and upload from PLC task. If i do, the software will be not responding and need to be closed.. Anyone know about this?
  5. Hello everyone, I have a problem with packing machine. There are some issues with one of the axis, when axis actual position is near to 1800000 some error appear and operator has to turn off machine on main contactor. This axis is working in Linear mode. I think that rotary mode would be better for this axis. And here is my question. Which instructions, and what options i should change/check when i change count mode in axis's options. Can any1 point me some manuals to read or give me some advice ? Thank you in advance.

  7. PLC occasionally going out of Run mode?

    Has anyone had an issue with Siemens plc's occasionally going out of run mode? I was doing some research and found that it could be due to a bad analog input. Is there a way to tell which input or output is causing this fault? I know I can create a hardware diagnostics error organization block but that only correct from what I've read.     Edit: I've added a screen shot of the diagnostics report. The fault that may be the problem is: Temporary CPU error: Serious firmware exception  CPU changes to DEFECTIVE mode (system reaction)  This plc / system was installed 2 year ago and we've had this problem occasionally since. I'm guessing the wrong firmware was used during the install. Will try upgrading firmware this weekend.   
  8. BECKHOFF CX-9020

    Hello PLC experts, I am master student currently writing thesis. For this, I have a initial task of making some changes to PLC program (Just started getting to know about PLCs- complete beginner). I have a BECKHOFF cx 9020 PLC connected to my notebook using ethernet. I am using TWINCAT 3.1 (VS) as IDE. Firstly, I cannot find my PLC IP address connected to my notebook . I added the route in the Twincat and it shows the PLC is connected. When, I am trying to run a program (activate boot project), I am unable to login to the PLC. It gives an error "login failed for application port 851". What I undertood from BECKHOFF scripts,  there is something wrong with the ADS ams net ID which I am trying to figure it out. I appreciate all the help. Thank you.
  9. 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
  10.  Hi all. I have a question about how to set up the motor in rotary mode. My application will be a basic rotary table driven by a servo motor without gearbox between. So, in my servo drive axis settings, I select the motor as a rotary mode. then I defined the maximum position setting value for 360 degrees, and minimum to 0. So far so good. But the problem comes when I want to make an absolute move using the mc_moveAbsolute to move 360 degrees. Whit this settings the error "target position settings out of range " will come up. So, what is the solution to rotate 360 degrees without generating this error? if I set up the maximum value to 361 degrees and then if I rotate 360 the error will not occur and the motor will rotate 360 degrees as I aspected, but it's this correct ? or there is another way to do it? Thanks  
  11. C-mode hostlink library for NJ/NX1P or CP1L

    Anyone knows if there is a C-mode hostlink library for NJ/NX ? Also, a C-mode hostlink library for CP1L could be helpful, to translate such a library to work with NX1P is probaly less work whan writing a new library.  Maybe Omron France has developed such a library? - they seem very active..   Background: Looking into writing a programmatic c-mode hostlink master for NX1P12, this is for connecting the handheld NSH5 HMI to the NX1P12 via RS232C using a CIF01. I have the hardware set up, and an machine built, expected some compatibility efforts by Omron.... but the NSH5 seems to talk C-mode hostlink, and the CIF01 only seems to support the FINS version hostlink.   On the NJ you can of course add an SCU module, thus not need a library.  But working with NX1 ( due to limited space available ), you are dependet on available CIF-modules which do not support C-mode hostlink.  
  12. Panel view plus

    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. 
  13. Here is a link to a thread on a recent post showing how to communicate serially to an Omron PLC using VB.Net. This uses the Omron Host Link serial protocols. (C-Mode Commands) It will read 10 DM registers and display them on the form.   http://accautomation.ca/implementing-the-omron-host-link-protocol-vb-net/ Here is the source program that can be downloaded.

  14. Hi, I have some trouble with a CJ2M-CPU33. My client did a backup to memory card earlier today, and after this we did some changes through remote link. Now the client wanted to restore the previous backup to the PLC and has done so, but the system would not function correctly. After going online on the PLC it seems like the PLC is stuck in "Stop/Programming Mode". When trying to change to "Monitor" or "Run" mode a dialog comes up containing the following message: "Failed to change the operating mode. The operating mode may be still changing in the PLC."  - All the dip switches are set to off after restoring backup - The PLC has been rebooted  - I have downloaded the application again through CX-programmer  - Verified that the PLC is set to start up in "Monitor mode" But nothing helps. The same message comes up when trying to change the operating mode.  Hoping anyone can help to resolve this issue as it is very critical for us and the client. In advance, thanks for any tips or help received. Best regards Stian

  18. Hello,  As the title indicates, we have a micrologix 1400 that has been installed for a long time.  Recently it faulted out on 71h and was in Remote Mode.  Do these PLCs revert to Remote Mode when in a fault condition?  We placed it back in Run Mode and everything worked fine, but how did it get to Remote Mode in the first place? Thanks,  J

  20. Binary Mode vs BCD Mode

    Hi all, I have created a program using the binary counter and timer instructions and everything works fine (yay!), but I am not entirely sure if there is a major difference between using Binary mode or BCD Mode on the PLC. Does it just come down to personal preference or is there an advantage to using a particular mode over the other? Also, does the operating mode affect anything besides counter/timer? The option in CX-Programmer seems to indicate it doesn't. Cheers, Jay
  21. I got a CJ1M CPU11 that I can connect to but I can just go to run mode but when I try to switch to program mode I'm tell that I can modify the mode

  23. IPC 620-1536

    HI, there. I am new to the Honeywell PLC, usually dealing with AB or Omron. Need some help from the Honeywell PLC gurus, my the only one PLC IPC620-1536 , suddenly stop working. No "Run" light or any outputs are present. Turning the "Mode Key" to the "program mode" and back to the "run mode" doesn't make any difference. I attached couple photo. My question, is any other way to start PLC running again? If I purchase the Win.Loader and communication cable and connect to the PLC, can I change PLC back to "Run" mode and upload the program, or fail to change the Mode using the Key. means the same fail using the software? Please update. Thanks for advance, 
  24. Panelbuilder 32

    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!
