  1. Hello there,   I am using Schneider HMI for the past few years, it's very versatile and easy to design graphics.   Now i started using OMRON HMIs and found that is weird to draw graphics in Omron NB-Designer.   I have Example, Look at the attached screenshot of both software, in the case of Schneider if I stretch a button or any object it will remain in the same good shape. but in the case of Omron, if you stretch any object it doesn't remain in the original shape. (check the attached images.)   Please suggest Ideas about designing a good Omron Hmi, Sample backup is always welcome. The image link is below, I am not able to upload it here. https://we.tl/t-HV9IOnyfAP  
  2. Thesis idea

    Hi guys!   Actually, I am student. I need to choose a thesis topic soon. I would like to write something which is connected with automation. I wolud like to ask your help, to figuring out an idea, what can be a good topic in nowdays. It would be a master degree already. Im using AB PLC-s, so it would be convinent if someone could suggest for me what I can solve with this, enviroment (rs logix 5000, studio 5000) Im not asking a solved thing. I would like to ask some ideas or tip. If anyone have some idea, pls share it thanks.  Thanks in advance.
  3. Hello, I want to ask for a second opinion regarding sizing infeed wires and cables. Take this case for example: 5G16 incoming supply cable (400VAC 3PH+N) to a panel which goes through a MCB and then to a potential distribution block. From there on i can feed various supplies: 1 off 30A Inverter (4mm wire) 1 off 15A Motor (1.5mm wire) 1 off 24VDC PS (2.2A) (1mm wire) The wires from the potential distribution block to the MCP (inverter / motor) an MCCB ( PS)  do they all have to be the same size as the highest consumer? This case inverter so 4mm?   Thank you.
  4. Hi all. I have a Kinetix 350 and an AB TLY servo motor. I'm using the drive's STO function. AC power is supplied into the drive, passing through an "M1" contactor. It makes sense to m e to keep that contactor open, preventing AC power to the drive, until the drive is fully awake.  Is that what you guys do? Someone suggested to me in another forum ( http://www.plctalk.net/qanda/showthread.php?t=121021&highlight=drive+awake ) that there is no reason not to supply power to the drive right away because the STO function is inhibiting power to the motor anyway. 
  5. What Is Meaning Of Universal Analog Input Card?
  6. Hello, I have a cp1h-y20dt-d (sinking output) plc supposedly to be wired to a servo controller. The pulse control method is Pulse/Direction. I've did some manual research on the PLC and found the following diagram attached Untitled. Since the diagram above doesnt show which terminals does it connect to in the CP1H side circled red, I want to ask if those connections belong to the following diagram attached Untitled1? If so, assuming im planning to use only Pulse Output1 (Pulse/Direction method) from the PLC side, is the connection from the first diagram no.1=CCW0- , no.2=CCW1- , no.3=COM (connected to -ve) *Note: these diagrams are from omron's manual SYSMAC CP Series CP1H-X40D_-_ CP1H-XA40D_-_ CP1H-Y20DT-D CP1H CPU Unit Your replies would greatly help. Thanks and best regards, Summer
  7. I got denied on a job interview, there might have been a few things but I think not knowing NEC and lack of experience with three phase hurt me. The NEC stuff is for another thread but how do you get experience with three phase? Unless you're in a shop already 3ph can be tricky to find. We talked about it at school in multiple classes but never anything hands on. Yet the descriptions for these entry level jobs all expect you to have a few years in of working with 3ph. It looks like I can make my own three phase from 120VAC with a small VFD. Maybe find some small 3ph motor at the scrap yard, get a new contactor and practice taking measurements/hooking stuff up. I've no problem building a trainer if I get to study up on 3ph and NEC at the same time. Crazy? Any advice?
  8. Change the keypad design in FTView

    Hey Community, i would like to know if its possible to change the designe of the keypad in FTView which pop up at entering a numeric variable. There is a screenshot in the attachment. Thanks in advance!   Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Best regards Adrian Düringer

  11. Hi Guys, I need to draw up a wiring diagram for a control panel.  What CAD software are you guys using?  Need something that is industry standard, has a good range of templates/stencils and preferably not too expensive.  Thanks in advance, Ben
  12. PAROCK1 for HMI/SCADA View File Now a software solution is available for your Modbus (MB) needs in Rockwell/Allen-Bradley Control Logix or Compact Logix (Clgx) family processors, instead of a traditional 3rd party hardware like Prosoft MVI-56, Molex SST-SR4-CLX-RLL etc.  It is an Add-on instruction (AOI) for PLC/PAC firmware v16 or later, (other solutions are available for pre v16 systems).  For hardware interface, use PLC’s channel 0 (serial) or TCP/IP Interface module(s) to have as many MB TCP/IP devices or serial devices.  (Some limits apply based on system configurations, Comm. settings depending on HW used.) Connect any MB Client/Master or Server/Slave device(s) to your CLgx PLC, including flow computers, analyzers, VFDs, Power Monitors, Level gauges, Smart I/O, etc.  All the MB public/native function codes are supported.  32-Bit integers/floats as single entity are supported with byte and word level swapping. A separate utility automates the data mapping to your PLC logic.  Features -Serial Master (BASIC required Option); TCP; Slave; Redundancy; More than 5000 accumulative registers; MB CFC (Custom/Private Function Code) Support; Data mapping too – Between PAROCK1 & your PLC logic; Packaged with Rockwell; TCP/IP Interface Module; Volume Discounts; Annual Support Requirements -Rockwell/AB-CLgx processor with v16 or later.  Contact PCI for earlier versions. -If using CPU’s Chan0, you cannot use Chan0 for any other user mode activity. You can use it for non-user mode activities -TCP/IP Interface Modules from Rockwell/AB supported, are: -1756-EN2xx ControlLogix® Ethernet/IP communication modules, firmware revision 5.007 or later -1756-EWEB ControlLogix Ethernet/IP web server module, firmware revision 4.006 or later -1768-EWEB CompactLogix Ethernet/IP web server module, firmware revision 1.002 or later -1769-L30ER, 1769-L30ERM, 1769-L30ER-NSE, 1769-L33ER, 1769-L33ERM, and 1769-L36ERM CompactLogix controllers, firmware revision 20.011 or later -1769-L24ER-QB1B, 1769-L24ER-QBFC1B, 1769-L27ERM-QBFC1B CompactLogix controllers, firmware revision 20.011 or later -1769-L16ER, 1769-L18ER, 1769-L18ERM CompactLogix controllers, firmware revision 20.011 or later Other Related Services/Items -Custom PLC Add-on instructions building -PLC upgrades, troubleshooting, applications -PC Windows, iOS5, Linux, Mobile devices Comm. Drivers -Custom development, Technology Transfer Services  -Other Non-AB communication drivers for serial or TCP  -Full control system integration, training, architecture design This driver can be conviniently used with Visual Studio in development of complete large scale complex HMI/SCADA Systems. It can be used to perform advanced reporting MES, analytics, IoT, Big data type apps.

    Hi there! I`m a PLC programmer from Romania and i work in automotive industry. I know to program in Step 7 and in Codesys. I`ve been working with S7-300 from Siemens and Wago 750-881. I am also designing the electrical drawing for my project in a software called WSCAD. I am trying to leave abroad because i have a low salary here and i am wasting my knowledge. Can anyone give me an advice or help me with finding a normal paying job in plc programming? Thank you very much in advance and have a really nice day!
  14. GT Designer 3

    I want to put a Numerical Input on the screen to show a timer counting up. How do I make the display show whole seconds instead of tenths of a second as set by K in the timer? Is there somewhere that I can divide the input by 10? Thanks Denbo
