  1. VM With Studio 5000, FTVSE, Emulate 5000

    Ok, so I was tasked with setting up a virtual for our development team to be able to use to quickly deploy projects hmi, emulated plc, and studio 5000 project together on one virtual.  The main reason for this is when we get a project, many times we have to wait for an available plc.  We have plc’s in our rack but they can’t be used because they are being used for other projects.  I’ve used the compatibility matrix that Rockwell has but my boss wants to stick with Windows 10 Professional like we do in most our projects but according to the matrix, it looks like having FactoryTalk View SE Enterprise version 10, Studio 5000 Logix version 33 and Studio 5000 Logix Emulate version 33, FactoryTalk Gateway 6.11 and RSLinx 4.11 (mainly for communication to the emulated plc) but in the matrix says Windows 7 and Windows Server 2012  is the best choice.  I’ve ran into issues with Emulate opening, it takes up to 20 minutes to open.  Our licenses are on a server and accessed using FactoryTalk Activation Manager and all the activations are there.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  2. I am copying some data from a vendor PLC through MSG instruction into my PLC through CIP data table read. Is there a better way to break down this array of data into individual real tags through an instruction (something similar to WORD_to_BIT instruction in Modicon). I was looking at FAL instruction but its not exactly doing what I am looking for. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  3. Hi there! I've been working with NB HMIs with good result. But today I loaded a project to a NB7-TW01B and it feels slow, both offline and online. Switching screens and reading/writing take around 1sec or more. It first had some bmp images created with .bmp and .png files, so I tried using vector graphics instead, but didn't get any better. I don't have another NB to try it right now so I'd like to ask you if you've been in this same situation before or what could be causing this. PLC is CP1L and communication it's via Ethernet. Both devices are actually pretty close (cable is less than 3m) and the previous HMI (Pro-face GP) felt a lot faster. Thanks in advance!
  4. Error Indicator on FX3U-ENET-ADP

    Hi all, I have finished installing ethernet adapter module FX3U-ENET-ADP on the FX3U-48M PLC. From the ethernet module, i connected it to a wireless router and then i am planning of connecting to the ethernet module using GXWorks 2 on my laptop through wireless router. On the ethernet module, the error indicator LED is on (red). From the FX3U-ENET-ADP, it means that there might be setting or hardware errors.  I am asking if i have missed some steps on the installation process and if any of you have experience with similar problems. Thanks in advance for the answers.
  5. Hi Everyone, I've had V32 installed for at least a year but haven't had much need for it until this month. I installed a new activation on Friday that I thought crashed V32, which was weird because all the other Studio versions were working. Any time I tried to open an existing project or even create a new one, I would get an "access violation was generated" fatal error. I reached out to a colleague who found a tech note on the problem. Turns out the activation had nothing to do with the crash but rather, turning on the bookmark tool bar caused it. If you have the bookmarks toolbar turned on in version 32  the Windows desktop needs to be set at 100% magnification, not 125% which is the Windows default. Right clicking on the desktop, picking display settings and changing the scale and layout to 100%, then rebooting the computer fixed it. But now all the Windows icons are really small. I've been spending most of my time in V21 through V28 until recently. Since we're all likely going to be seeing more V32 in the near future, I'd thought I'd pass this on.  
  6. I'm a young Controls Engineer at an integration company, and I need assistance.   I have a client that has about 330 different alphanumeric product numbers broken down by length and width. The operator must be able to select the product number at the HMI to pass along to the robot we are integrating. Is there a way to be able to have the operator select the product number simply, without having to scroll over 300 items in a single control list. The HMI is not chosen yet, so it can be GE, Rockwell/AB, or Automation Direct, but we are using a AB ControlLogix Processor. Racking my brain and I have little VBA/Scripting experience.
  7. Hi all,  I want to ask some questions regarding Ethernet Communication with FX3U PLC series. I have 2 PLCs of FX3U series (FX3U-48M and FX3U-64M) and I want to monitor its data (input and output) using ethernet communication in real time. My questions are: 1. Does FX3U PLC have ethernet port so I can connect it directly to my Laptop/PC? 2. If no, do I need to use FX3U-ENET-ADP and can it be used for 2 PLC or only 1? 3. What software do I need to use to configure the communication between PLC and FX3U-ENET-ADP? 4. Does this configuration change the existing PLC program? 5. Can i transmit the data wireless-ly using some kind of ethernet to wifi adapter and what additional hardware do i need for that?  
  8. Is there an easy way to copy an Excel table into a string array in RSLogix? instead of doing it one by one?
  9. Check serial connection to Omron PLC

    Hello, I am building an application in CitectSCADA and I want to communicate with an Omron Sysmac CS1G. The connection between the plc and the Citect computer is through an ethernet to serial adapter (the computer doesn't have com ports on board). I'm having some difficulty establishing the communication and I want to make sure that I can actually reach the plc. Is there a way to check that the computer can reach the plc over the serial connection without using CX programmer? Maybe using Hyper Terminal, Putty or something similar. Thank you, Liron
  10. VBA issue on FTViewSE Clients

    I am having a very weird issue that Rockwell was not able to help with.  I have a new SE application that I converted from RSView32 and I re-wrote some VBA code associated with the project.  The code works fine on the server while the screen is running in studio.  Once I deploy a Client it no longer works.  It just sits there like its waiting for my trigger to go off, but I am seeing it sit there with a 1 so i know it should be executing the code because as soon as i open the screen in studio and press play the code executes and my data is there.  Does anyone have any ideas for me?   Thanks
  11. InTouch Comms

    Hi Everyone, I've just installed InTouch V10 and am trying to develop communication with Emulate5000, for educational purposes. I looked over the internet and found some videos on how to develop communications by setting up the topic name and node name in DA Server manager, but the issue I'm facing is that my SMC only shows logViewer and nothing else (snapshot attached). Am I missing some vital component or dirver? Or is there some problem with my installation? Help would be much appreciated.   P.S: Window Maker and Viewer are working fine. Thanks, Sabih

  15. Hello there, I am new to OMRON so need some help to communicate two PLC over FINS.   Here are the description of the system... (IO Table image is attached)   PLC1-  CJ2M-CPU33 IP- SUBNET- UNIT NO - 00 (set the dial available on the CPU in HEX) NODE - 22 (set the 2 dials available on the CPU in HEX) PLC2-  CJ2M-CPU33 IP- SUBNET- UNIT NO - 01 (set the dial available on the CPU in HEX) NODE - 23 (set the 2 dials available on the CPU in HEX)     Now, what i have to do is to transfer the D100 to D110 from PLC1 to PLC2's D200 to D210 and Transfer the D100 to D110 from PLC2 to PLC1's D200 to 210.   I have tried RECV and ECHRD blocks but didn't succeed yet.   Two CPU are connected over ethernet via a industrial switch.   Can you help me to achieve data transmission please...
  16. Clock without using GSV

    Hello, I'm new in this forum and I signed up because I have an issue that has been frustrating me over the past few days. My problem is the following: I need to find a way to have a clock that can be out of time 7 hours. For example, I am counting parts on a machine, the machine starts counting at 7AM on day 1, so I need that part count to continue counting until 7AM on day 2. If I use GSV, at 00:00 it starts on day 2 and the log is to be stored on day 2, I need it to be stored on day 1 until 7AM on day 2. I hope I have explained myself correctly. Do you know of any way to do this in ladder logic? Any help would be appreciated.
  17. Good day, We are running FactoryTalk View SE (Network Distributed) version 7.00 (CPR 9 SR 6). We have 5 machines: Engineering Station, HMI/Data Server A, HMI/Data Server B, Operator station A and B. The FT Directory is located on Server A. Server A is Primary and Server B secondary. I made some changes to one of the HMI Display's and added a HMI Tag with an alarm.  Tested the changes, everything worked as predicted. I then checked the status of the RSLinx, HMI and Data servers using FT Administration Console, everything was running with full redundancy. I then selected Replicate to Secondary, the replication was successful and Server B rebooted. After Server B finished rebooting, I check the status again. I found that the RSLinx and Data servers started up and was again fully redundant but the HMI Server showed that Server A was active and Server B was Ready to provide service, left it for about 10 minutes but it never changed to Standby.  I rebooted Server B again to see if it will help but it did not. I then stopped the services on Server B, deleted the HMI Project, restored the project from a backup of Server A, but still had the same issue. I am suspecting that there might be an issue on server A because if I open FT View Studio on the engineering station, I get an error stating: Unable to open HMI Server. I have checked all network connections and everything looks fine. Is there someone that may be able to assist me?

  19. Hi everyone! I got this machine with a CP1H PLC and NS8-TV00B-V2 as PT. I was told that they were working fine, but suddenly, It appeared a communication issue: black screen and "connecting..." at right bottom. I dont know if It is a configuration problem or some hardware damage.  These are the configuration in the PT and the PLC. The communication is through RS232 Serial.  I tried to communicate another PT screen with the same communication settings and IT WORKED!. ' I've been thinking that, perhaps, the serial port A is damaged, I have tried to set port b, but I havent could. How can I configurate PORT B??   THANKS...  
  20. Hey all - I am working on a car wash system design that will utilize the Nayax payment system. Has anyone utilized them? How do I incorporate the device with PLC to automate the system. After payment is approved how can I send out that signal from them, all via ethernet on a managed switch w/ wifi for exterior comms for the Nayax.
  21. Hi All, Hope you all doing well in this pandemic life.  I would need your expertise with an issue I have been struggling with for past few days and thought to reach out here. I am working on a migration project with GE PLC and Citect SCADA 7.10. The GE PLC is migrated to ControlLogix L74 Rev24.10 while Citect SCADA is retained. For testing I only have L71 and L82 and could not managed to organise L74. When the code the loaded in L71 and connected to Citect, I cannot see tags in Graphic page but I see the subscription.txt in Debug folder shows all tags good . The same code when loaded in L82, the Citect works instantly.  Does anyone know this behaviour of PLC and SCADA? Regards, DeeEngr

  23. Hello all,   My coworker is running into an issue where his version of Sysmac Studio has been updated, but this is causing a version mismatch from an existing project.  He has called Omron, and they are saying that there's no way to downgrade the OS.    Project operating system version = 7.4.0 Device Operating System version =  7.3.0   So the OS on the NA5 would need to be upgraded to match the version of Sysmac.  Does anyone have any suggestions to revert the automatic upgrade that has occurred? Any help would be appreciated!
