  1. Hi, I am having trouble with the following hopefully someone can help. Equipment Omron NX102-1220 PLC, SEW MDX61B MoviDrive B with DFE24B EtherCat Card. I am trying to control an SEW Servo Motor via the Omron Ethercat connection. I have connected and configured as below image, at this stage there is no errors with the PLC When I try to add a Motion control axis I can set it up as below but when I download it to the PLC I get the following error I have then reversed all of this and added an R88D-KN drive and this downloads fine.. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Thanks
  2. Hello all, I am looking into creating a system where I have an NX102 in a main panel, and numerous satellite panels (up to 20) with EtherCat Slaves which would then have daisy-chained EtherCat slaves. Essentially, the main panel would need a GX-JC06 to allow branching out, but this only has 6 ports.  1 of them would be used to connect to the master (NX102), but would I be able to connect one GX-JC06 to another?  I highly doubt the GX-JC06 behaves like a typical router, but I can't find any documentation about creating more than 5 branches. Thanks, K
  3. Hello , I am trying to run and parameters settings of several Q2V inverters +SI-ES3+JOHB-Q2V (option board for Ethercat), I managed to install the xml file for the settings , but I dont see as much settings as with the MX2 , and I cant find any related FB's as with the MX2, maybe someone has set this inverters before ? Thanks!

  6. Hello! I am working on a quote for a new project that will use EtherCAT but also requires DeviceNet for some legacy components.  Has anyone successfully used the Beckhoff EtherCAT coupler (EK1100) with the DeviceNet Master Terminal (EL6752) and an Omron PLC as the EtherCAT master? My concern is that the coupler will only communicate with the Beckhoff EtherCAT master, but since it is so much more expensive to get the new Omron parts to communicate DeviceNET i am hoping this could be an option.  The equipment is extremely simple and price is a major consideration.   Thank you!!!
  7. KINCO PLC as MODBUS RTU slave

    Hello to everyone. I hope you are doing well. I'm trying to establish a communication between my PC and my KINCO PLC. The manual states it supports MODBUS RTU protocol, so I downloaded two different Modbus Master simulator I found out: Multiway from OMRON and qModMaster. None of them seem to work properly. I attached some pictures of the messages I get. https://ibb.co/f1mCSNt Multiway message https://ibb.co/bP5cX1t qModMaster message I include the configuration of the communication parameters. https://ibb.co/nMty8D9 PLC parameters https://ibb.co/6RTqVfC Multiway parameters https://ibb.co/N1XTccd qModMaster parameters According to the manual, in order to play the role of Modbus master with the PLC it's necessary to configure some instruction blocks (I'm programming in ladder). However, I could not find any block to configure as Modbus slave. I don't know what else I can do. I'm in trouble with this task. Am I making some mistake? Thanks for your attention.  Kind regards!
  8. Hello, hardaware: NX1P29024DT1 (ver1.18), frequency inverter Altivar ATV320U07M2B (ver. 2.7 IE32) and communication EtherCAT card VW3A3601 I have a few ESI files v.109, 111, 113, 114 instaled in Sysmac Studio in ESI Library. I can not establish connection between NX1P2 and ATV320 by EtherCAT. In Network cofiguration I add slave with Node Address 2. The same Address is in ATV320 (ECAA and ECSA - parameters). When I connect both I see "Network Cofiguration Verification Error" Code 84220000 and black cross on diagram "Not matched" in Sysmac Studio. On the communication EtherCAT card in Altivar LED1 Green Filickering (Link, activity) but LED2 is OFF (EtherCAT state: INIT). I see in Altivar that parameter ECSS (EtherCAT slave status) INIT. If any one have experience with connection by EtherCAT NX/NJ with ATV32, 320, 340 ? p.s. The same communication EtherCAT card VW3A3601 I use for communication the same NX1P2 with serwo Lexium32M, of course with the appropriate ESI file for this slave and comunication is OK.
  9. Hi everyone, To explain the problem a little bit: I have 2 systems that are equal, they have 1 PLC, 1 Inverter and 1 Servo Axis (Image01). The devices are connected via EtherCat. The thing here is tht in these systems the PLC and Servo Axis is the same but the inverter is different. My goal is to have the same project on both systems and depending on the inverter detected use the correct program. What worked: If I add the 2 Inverters and 2 Servo Axis on the project on different nodes (Image02), I can detect which is present using the variable _EC_EntrySlavTb[n]. My issue is that if I want to make more replicas of the systems using different inverters I will eventually hit the Axis Number limit for the PLC while in reality I am only using on Servo Axis at a time. What I wanted: I would like to be able to control 1 Servo Axis with 2 different inverters (only one active per PLC) (Image03). What I tried: The axis parameters can be set using a variable of the type _sAXIS_PARAM, however it seems that the option to change the axis basic settings is not available (Manual: NJ/NX-series Motion Control Instructions Reference Manual (W508) page 5-58) (Image04). The axis basic settings is where the definition of the output device plus control words are set (Image05). Is there a work around to solve this issue? I would really like to avoid having to manually change the output device for the Servo Axis every time I make an update on all the systems.   Best Regards, BR  
  10. How to use EtherCAT device

    I have a device which uses the ET1100, Beckhoff to control. I use software TwinCAT 2 to connect this device and it identified the name's EtherCAT I/O Heizungssteller 9 Kanal. But it appear error, it's ERR_PREOP and cannot change to OP. Error: 'check device state for SAFEOP'. AL Status '0x0012' read and '0x0004' expected. AL Status Code '0x0017' - Invalid sync manager configuration'  Anyone can support me how to fix the error, change to OP for EtherCAT device, or how to control this? I attach the image of this error. Please!    
  11. Hello guys, I have an application with a Delta PLC (slave), Load cell module and Delta HMI.  The problem is that the Delta PLC has to report to the already existing platform of Siemens S7 PLC (Master) with Profibus. The Master (Siemens) writes and reads data from the Delta PLC. The question is, how can I set up the Profibus communication? Are there any documentations about the Memory Mapping, configuration etc. There are some modules for Profibus Slave from Delta but I cannot find any references or anything. Thanks in advance.
  12. All of the ethercat servos I have installed are Omron. I have used many many brands in the past - over analog, pulse train, but not ethercat. I have one of the Yaskawa servopacks that can control two servos independently. The drive is all wired (POT, NOT, safety), autotuned, it's in RUN OK state, I have installed the ESI file, set up the axis, mapped the PDOs.. it's all working, but they do not move. I made a test program just with MC_POWER and MC_MOVEJOG/MC_MOVERELATIVE/MC_MOVEABSOLUTE along with the resetting of MC and EC and the servos do turn on, but ignore any movement command. They do not flare up with an error, and they give me their actual position, so the network is working. If I send the movement command the command position starts to differ, so the plc is/should be sending the command. I feel like there's something missing in the PDO mapping screen, but I didn't need to do all of this with Omron so I have no idea. I thought at first the servos needed huge units of movement and speed but the actual position value confirms this is not the case since it doesn't ever change.
  13. We have a customer insisting on communicating with our NX102-9000 over EtherCAT, we have explained multiple times that EtherCAT is not intended as a facility communication protocol and recommended that instead they use Ethernet/IP, but after a year of pushing back they are still insisting and willing to pay for the Engineering work to get this to happen. Has anyone successfully configured two EtherCAT masters to communicate with each other? In the past I have used the PN-PN Master Coupler from Siemens to get two ProfiNet Masters to communicate with each other so I am hopeful that a similar device exists for EtherCAT, but I have not had any luck searching the web for such a device. Does anyone have experience with or know of such a device? Thank you!!
  14. Hello, I have a problem when communicating between PLC NX102 and ethercat slave module. ethercat slave still Safe-Operation state. and i get error  • Slave State Transition Failed • Slave AL Status Error Detected does anyone know how to deal with it?  
  15. 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.
  16. Hello.  I'm trying to help someone with a sawmill find a way to input from a sensor to connect it to the PC.  Not sure where even to look to ask for help. but here's what I understand:   The sensor is a SIKO MSA-213C Magnetic Sensor, using EtherCAT.  This interfaces with     SSI, BiSS C, IO Link They just need to connect it to the PC to work with it.   It could just connect to a USB port somehow, or the etherCAT option.   I found this:  MB3U    BiSS (SSI)-to-PC Adapter (USB)  link to .de site   any suggestions or pointers would be very helpful!    These folks don't use the internet, so I help them.

  17. In Sysmac Studio, I want to add some devices to my network using the Ethercat setup in Sysmac Studio. How do I add devices that do not come as part of the initial install, like a Balluff IO Master, for example?
  18. Has anyone had experience with EtherCAT Communications using Sysmac, NJ5 PLC & Yaskawa SI-ES3 EtherCAT Comms board for A1000 VFD?  I have looked at the manual, but as I am still green on Sysmac & Omron programming in general.....not sure I understand what to do to simple Drive Status monitoring, Execute RUN/STOP & Speed Select... Thanks in advance :) 
  19. Trying connect baumer EAL 580... Ethhercat absolute encoder with Beckhoff C6015. Ethercat connection is From PLC to EL6695 module(This module is connected to KUKA robot for mater to master communication) and from Out port of EL6695 to In port of Baumer Encoder. It is not getting scanned nor manually appended. But when i connect it directly to PLC it works fine(gets scanned). Any solution?
  20. Hello All I am new to Mitsibishi servodrive, i am using a Beckhoff PLC TwinCAT3  and MR-J4-TM servo drive from mitsubishi , i connected the servo to the NTwinCAT using etherCAT. I was able to write a program where i was able to activate the servo from the TwinCAT using the mc_Power instruction . My question is , i am not able to run the servo using the mc_movevelocity and mc_moverelative . Do any one have any suggestion to how to go from here .. datei_Mr-J4-TM_TwinCat_EtherCAT.pdf
  21. Is it possible to setup Ethercat parameters from within the PLC program?  I am facing a situation where a machine is going to have changeable tooling fixtures and each fixture is going to have an EtherCAT device on it.  I am guessing they will need to be setup to look like the same node to the PLC, but they will have different physical IDs and different settings for some of the parameter fields.  They will be the same device so they will have the same parameter fields, just different values in those fields. I can also get these devices with EthernetIP as the fieldbus option.  In that case I would always have a network error because the PLC would always see one of the devices missing from the network.  is it possible to enable/disable Ethernet connections from within the program logic to avoid the error?

  23. Is it possible to use FX3U-485ADP-MB as a serial port to send and receive user defined string/data to and from a computer? I have a FX3U-32M PLC and two FX3U-485ADP-MB adapters. I have been using PLC with one adapter as Modbus Master. Now i want to use both adapters, where one will be Modbus Master as usual and the other I want to use to send and receive data to and from computer terminal (Example - Realterm). I have a third party 232/485 converter which works really well. Lets me just describe my requirement straight forward. I want to display process parameters on a windows computer based user interface (UI) and also set some variables in PLC from the same UI. The UI has access to serial ports of computer.

  25. Hello I have a scenario that's been bugging me for some time now. The scenario consists of a Micrologix 1400 that I need to control it's output from modbus/tcp. In detail what I really need is to be able to manipulate the O0:0 through modbus/tcp. The PLC would be the master and I would be the slave that triggers the connection to the master. I'm using a Modbus-Client on my PC and that should be the slave. Any idea as to how I can manage that? Currently I can send data to the master but everything is "stored" on B10 and I have no idea how I could write directly on O0. Thanks a bunch guys. PS: I'm borderline noob.
