  1. 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!!!
  2. 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?  
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

  5. 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?
  6. 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 :) 
  7. 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?
  8. 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
  9. 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?

  11. 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.

  13. 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. 
  14. My NX7 controller all of a sudden lost the EtherCAT configuration today. The safety PLC was in fault and some of the safety I/O slices on the NX EtherCAT coupler are missing. How does this happen and how do I fix it? I tried to download the configuration using synchronize but I keep getting coupler and NX-SL3 safety PLC errors. I connected to the coupler using USB and the actual configuration is missing some slices?     I only see an option to 'Apply Actual Unit Configuration' but nothing about going the other way.  The coupler is in error so is this why I can't send the project configuration with all the slices back to the coupler? The NX-SL3 safety PLC is in error because of these missing slices?
  15. Password Protected LS Master K

    I have a customer that has a LS Master K PLC, and he needs me to make some changes to the program. I am not the original program writer so I do not have the original program nor the password. And the company that originally made this program does not exist anymore. Does anyone have any suggestions on a software or a device that can help me either find the password or just bypass it. I need help ASAP Please!!!!! I saw there is a password breaker while i was googling, but the software cost $50, and it looked a little sketchy so I am kind of hesitant to trust 1 purchasing the software and 2 downloading it only my work laptop. Please help!!

  17. Hi all, I have an NJ trying to talk to the secondary side of a Kuka EL6695-1001 EtherCAT bridge. The NJ appears to recognise the bridge but fails with an "acquisition error" or "Failed to get the lower network configuration information". Apart from these messages (and the fact it doesn't work), it all appears to configure correctly (memory sizes and PDOs). The activity light on the bridge 'IN' port is flashing (connection to NJ) and we have verified the Ethernet cable. I have tried the ESI file supplied by Kuka and one supplied by Omron - no joy. Any suggestions please? Thanks.
  18. I need solution for master & slave configuration between 2 PLC Twido TWDLCAE40DRF. My final project is about a system for filling drink on a cup and do the packaging. the component of the project is the filling system (dropping cup, filling water, pressing the seal) and the packing (packing into a box and sealing the box). This project is using 2 PLC Twido TWDLCAE40DRF. My problem is how to configure one of them as the master and the other as the slave. I've read the manual book but it's hard to understand the instruction. if anyone can give a simplify explaination to me please reply this post or you can reach me at mail: tatangprayoga11@gmail.com

  20. Beckhoff and AS-Interface

    Hi, I’m trying to control 10 Safety switchgear using AS interface, and since I’m using Beckhoff as a PLC I want to use "KL6211 | AS-Interface master terminal" as a Gateway but since this is the first time I’m using Beckhoff I’m a bit lost, So my questions are: -          Is it a good idea to use a Beckhoff ASI terminal? -          How to configure it? -          Is there a possibility to configure it using embedded PC ( I’m using CX2030)? Excuse my English.

  22. Master/Slave Communication

    Hello guys, I am using Fatek PLC's to communicate with each other as a Master & Slave through zigbee which is connected through RS485. And I succeed. But the issue is that I have to communicate each other at a distance of about 2km where zigbee out of range to each other. I am bit confused here; 1) whether I use RF booster? Does it work? 2) Should I introduce extra PLC as a repeater between master slave? But this(extra added) PLC repeater also become as a master(Master Repeater).or any idea? Most important I can using Fatek Protocol or Modbus RTU or Modbus ASCII prootcol.

  25. Hey Guys,i'm working on implementing the master side of a custom serial master-slave protocol between a B&R PLC and an electronic card.As part of the data i'm sending and receiving is used to close various loops(e.g. cascaded temperature control where the temperature sensors and actuators are connected to the electronic card) , but other data is not as usefull (e.g. various data used for display or at specific times), i believe i will also need to implement some sort of priority mechanism.my first question is - based on your experience - how would the general master side SW architecture look like? (for example - the send side of mine is comprised of 3 tasks all running under the same cycle - lower level task in charge of opening the port, sending the data etc, a mid level task in charge of creating the packet based on command from upper level, giving commands to lower level and using status from it to continue and finally - an upper level task in charge of deciding which messages to send).my second question is - how would you implement the priority mechanism?thanks
