  1. EPLAN Help

    I am attempting to use EPLAN P8 (v.2.9) to import details from a 'holy grail' excel sheet of a cable list with terminal tags and numbers (source and target for each cable). To do this I began importing details in a trial and error fashion through the pre-planning menu to the pre-planning navigator. I have several questions. Question (1) Has anyone else tried to do this?  In the process of importing from the excel sheet I have not been able to successfully assign source and target for each cable object. It shows up on the synchronization dialog after I work through the field assignment but it disappears after import. ( I do not fully understand the proper structures, definitions, properties and levels to get what I want). I do understand if I import source and target terminals, and cable objects separately, then I can place on the detailed view and source and target are assigned then. Question (2) Does anyone know how to assign source and target to a cable object in pre-planning 'by import'?  (Reason being that the excel file is huge and manual assigning isn't feasible). On one of my attempted field assignment schemes I was able to have cable, source terminal, and target terminal, all on different levels (not actually assigned as source and target for the cable object btw.). However the result for source and target on the report (planning overview, form: f40_006) had all of the designations of the tree structure from the upper levels. For example, cable: HAC4401, source: HAC4401 X1:5, target: HAC4401 X1:5 TB1:5. (Where X1:5 is source terminal and TB1:5 is target terminal). Question (3) Does anyone know how to create a 'branch' or 'fork' in the tree structure in the preplanning navigator so that both source and target terminals (planning objects) are on the same level and so do not inherit each others details?  There's a bunch of info in reading the above I know, but if anyone can shed some light on this it would be much appreciated!!!! Thanks in advance,  MajorMac
  2. Hi there! I was working on EPLAN Electric P8 when suddenly, the program stopped working (mouse didn't barely move, couldn't click) which resulted in a blue screen after trying to close the program (didn't manage to force stop of the VMWARE process where I execute it).  So, the thing is I can open projects and all, but everytime I close a component window I get this error window: (S275024) Couldn't find setting USER.SYSTEM.GUI.Control.MGGrid.DeviceTagGUI.116.1002.LastIndex.index. And it happens when other different windows (for example when opening Layer Manager I get the same error with LayerManger instead of DeviceTag. Also, if I try to close Eplan by clicking the red X of the window, It won't close. What can I do? There's very little info about this error code in the net and I'm running out of ideas. Thanks in advance!
  3. Hi, Dunno where else to ask, so I'll just vent my question here. I've recently gotten into EPLAN and since there is like zero google results on anything regarding it, I'd be grateful to receive some help. 1:  I'm trying to put down some Siemens Sirius ACT command points onto the drawings, but I cant seem to link them...   See. https://imgur.com/a/v03chzQ 2: Can I change the coloring of wires to match what the real wires is going to have?   See. https://imgur.com/a/GVBxE4N      Ref from ACAD E https://imgur.com/a/9SvQNwo   //Kind regards for any help in these issues.

  5. Hi, This is my first time to start an actual project. I have some basic to intermediate programming background with Seimens PLC in the past but with no work experience. I bought an old bandsaw machine for a very cheap price. It works fine on manual operations but I want to try and test if I can make the fully automatic function back. The current PLC installed in the machine is a Shihlin Electric SEPLC A1-30MR. It look old and the port is not familiar to me. I also have no idea if I can even get the program inside or not. Thus, I plan to replace the old PLC with a new one. Here are my questions. Should I use a PLC or can I just use a digital controller like Logo ? I need to use a loop for counting how many cuts it should do. And how many times the machine should repeat the push of my stock out per cut. What else should I consider when choosing a PLC or digital controller?   Thank you in advance. 
  6. Hi, I've been having a problem with my Schneider setup, and I can't seem to figure out the problem. I'm using Machine Expert Logic Builder and Vijeo 6.2, and I can't seem to download to my PLC. I can download to my HMI just fine, but my HMI comes back with the message as mentioned in the title. Also when I perform a full download, machine expert comes up with the message "Could not connect to the device for item "xx", selected target system "PLC name" is different from the connected device "HMI name". The weirdest thing is that machine expert shows my PLC just fine, but doesn't show my HMI. I have no idea what to do, as I feel like I've tried everything. The IP range is fine, subnet is fine. The driver in IO manager in Vijeo has the PLC nodename in it, so that shouldn't be the problem either. Does anyone know what to do in a situation like this? Thank you in advance!
  7. Hello everybody,   First, I used the BMX NOR 0200H module associated with a GSM modem, for the time stamp and the problem is at the level of data recovery (slave PLC), I received the value of the variable (it's OK), but instead of the modification date of the variable, I received the send date (from the master PLC to the slave PLC).   After this application, I tried to use Web Desinger to do the timestamp by recovering a .csv extension file, but the file does not generate in the memory card (I accessed the module's memory card by an FTP client).   At this stage, the BMX NOR 0200H module, does not respond to a new configuration or a modification (either by Web Designer software or by Web Server, even these last two confirms me by a dialog box that the module has accepted the change).     Thank you all for your attention.    
  8. Automax Reliance Electric Drive

    I have a Reliance Electric Drive Digital I/O Module 57401 that won't close the MCR contact R1/B3.  I believe I've narrowed the problem to the 4 input signals WDOK, BD INIT, INIT, FAULT on the Multibus.  Does anyone know how to access those signals from AutoMax Executive.  I have also made a breakout cable, out of an old output card to access those signals.  The problem with the breakout board is that P1-16 does not carry over to the empty slots 5, 6, 7, 8 and slots 11, 12, 13, 14 are full with the drive cards in question.  I would also like to find out what drives those signals, especially the Fault signal on P1-16 of the Multibus.
  9. Hi everyone! I am working on a project for the US market, but the request we had from our customer was that the symbols remain according to IEC, and not NFPA, and that I generate a Symbol overview which contains the used symbols in project. I know how to generate symbol overview with the used symbols, but the problem is that they want that aside to IEC symbol stands the corresponding NFPA symbol, and I have no idea how to do that. I attached an example of the thing that I have to generate. Does anyone have an idea how to do that? Thanks in advance
  10. Hello, everyone. I want to ask for help..  i want to upgrade HMI hakko V7 to V9.. have file hmi in V7 use software V-SFTV5 but when I open file V7 use software V-SFTV6 its cant convert and i attached the screenshoot below..  can someone tell me what's wrong?
  11. Hello, I am new to the forum. Being doing a lot of googling to see if theirs any cross-compatibility between an M241 PLC and a Simatic panel PC and stumbled across this forum which hopefully could help me out. I'm starting an automation project to automate my home brewery. The M241 from Schneider electric seems to tick the boxes for what I require.  At my work theirs a redundant Simatic Panel PC 670 just waiting to be recycled. My question is, can I use the panel pc purely as an HMI for the M241?  
  12. Hello everyone! I am new to Eplan, and I am working on a big project on which someone else has worked on before me and almost finished it, but with a lot of technical mistakes and missing peaces. My boss expects me to fix a lot of things, but I have no experience with this software, so I could use some help. The problem is that no revision information (revision date, description, approved by etc) is displayed in this project, and I don't know how to make it appear, and be correct. I have made changes in plot frame and added special texts which should display these data, but I don't know where should I define wanted information (for example, I put special text for "approved by" but I can't seem to find adequate place to write the name of that person)? And, is there a way for Eplan to generate automatically revision description, based on the changes I made? From all said, it is obvious that I have no idea at all how revisions work, so any help would be enormously appreciated Thank you in advance! Cheers

  14. Are there any good guide books out there that parse down the NEC to the sections relevant to controls engineering and panel building?
  15. Which one Baldor Motor is best for Industrial purpose like food processing?? Please suggest .
  16. In Eplan, you can put a comment on an input, such as "CLAMP SHOT BOLT 1 EXTENDED". Is it possible to make this comment reference a string (or combination of strings)? The reason I would like to do this, is so that if I want to change the first word of multiple comments, I can do this by changing only one string.
