  1. Hello, I am working on a project currently that uses a windows application on a PC to communicate with an NX1P2 controller to read and write variables data. I found a course on Udemy which has a Visual Studio project with OMRON DLLs that are used for these communications. I confirmed with OMRON that they do have official DLLs for this, but the technical support guy has told me he is trying to find them himself.   I have attached a screenshot of the DLL references.  I am really looking for the DLL libraries, aswell as the documentation on their functionality to I can use them to communicate. Any help would be greatly appreciated!  
  2. Unable to delete a screen

    Hello AB professionals, I am using FactoryTalk View Studio v11. I am basing on an old project to build my application. I restored the project from a .mer file. I deleted or renamed some old screens, saved and closed the project. But when I open the project next time the screens I deleted still show up. When I click on it it will show an error message "Component does not exist".  In the FactoryTalk ME application, I right click a screen name on the left tree under the Graphics, and then click "Delete" or "Remove", the display would disappear at that time. But it persists on coming back next time I open the project. If you know the solution to resolve please reply. It is much appreciated.   Thank you. Lei
  3. I'm working on a program where I manipulate REAL numbers in Sysmac studio using an NX1029020 PLC. My problem is I am new to automation and I don´t know how to display those numbers when connecting to an NB HMI. I´m trying to send the data to a bar picture and a number display. My question is which AT Specification Attribute should I assign to my variables in Sysmac Studio and their corresponding Area in NB-Designer? I tried using the DM area but it didn't show numbers on the displays, only shows *****. Should I convert my real variables in Sysmac first? Or how can I keep decimal numbers and then display them? My current configuration in Sysmac: Name Data type AT Network publish ST1 REAL %D5 Publish Only ST2 REAL %D3 Publish Only My current configuration in NB-Designer Bar Picture Addr. Type D Address 3 Code type BIN Number Display Addr. Type D Address 3 Code type BIN Data type Float Integer 4 Decimal 2
  4. Hi all, Can i rename the master of numbered project (#1, #2... create used "save as new number" function)? Actually i can only open preferences window of the last number, and only edit Author and Comment. If i edit one on these two it only change it on the last number. Are there a method to change preferences for the "master" project and all the sub-number? If i would rename a project now i have to save as different project, and loose basic version control that numbered projetc provide (enought for me) and generate more confusion. In the single project i have no problem edit all Preferences include name. Versione: Sysmac Studio Standard Edition 1.47 Thanks, Andrea.  
  5. FactoryTalk SE - VB Script

    Hey guys,   I am looking to query a database through FactoryTalk SE.  I will be scanning packages, and using that bar code to find a lane assignment from the database.     My question has to do with where the VB script will reside in the FactoryTalke SE program.  I want this script to run at all times.  I see that each screen has a "VBA Code" but I am assuming that these will only run when the screen is visible.   Where does this have to be stored in order to run all the time?   Thanks In Advance!
  6. Currently have NX PLC setup as an OPC UA server and an OPC client setup and communicating.  The issue is only tags that do not have a Data Type are showing up in the OPC client.  I have 2 separate OPC softwares connected to this plc through OPC UA and both are having same issue.  If I setup the OPC as a polling service, then all the tags show up as expected.  Does anyone know if this is a known issue with Omron and their OPC UA server, or is there something that I am doing incorrectly (possibly a setting within Omron that I am not aware of)?
  7. OS: Windows 7 on VMware virtual machine. Sysmac Studio V 1.13. What works: Ping to PLC. Sysmac Studio -> Controller -> Controller Communications -> Ethernet via hub -> Test -> "OK". What doesn't work: Starting with new project for NX701-1600 (correct PLC): Sysmac Studio -> Controller -> Online. -> Controller -> Transfer ... -> From Controller. The task seems to run to about 90% before stopping with the error:  I can't find any reference to this error in the manuals. Has anyone got any suggestions to fix this?   Many thanks.
  8. Hello! I have been working with a Factory Talk Studio V8.0 and my computer was crashed, "blue screen". After this, I can not open my panel project anymore, I only get information Failed to open factory talk private directory for the application. How to save my project?  
  9. View File Sysmac Studio Simple PID Example A simple test program and starting values for the PIDAT instruction in Sysmac Studio. Simply run the simulator (Simulation-> Run) and toggle the Test_PID bit. Simulated feedback will allow the loop to operate normally. The setpoint can be adjusted by modifying the PID_SP variable. There is a pre-programmed data trace that traces the SP, MV, and PV. To use the data trace navigate to DataTrace0 and start the trace, flip the Test_PID bit true and the trace will log 10k samples.

  11. The summary of the issue is when attempting to update any hardware file or technology package, the package will hang up in the “copy setup” status. This state will remain indefinitely – no further progress is made past this point. These are the steps that I have used to troubleshoot this thus far: I always run Automation Studio as an administrator I have redownloaded the program a couple of times, storing the downloaded ~8 GB package in C:/temp Temp files are cleared prior to launching Automation Studio I have tested different internet connections. With and without going through the company VPN. Launching the package via local and internet connection to isolate if it is a TCP port blocking issue. At this point I’m curious if there’s different registry key changes which allow for deleting files from temporary directories… but that’s just a theory. I've attached some screenshots.    What the function of the copy setup state? How can I progress past this state?    I'll keep banging on the keyboard to figure this one out but if there is a good Samaritan out there on the web it would be MUCH APPRECIATED!
  12. I am new to automation systems and devices and I just want to know how to connect two HMI's (each one would control different things) to one PLC using Sysmac Studio and NB-Designer via Ethernet. The model of the PLC is NX1029020 and the HMI's are one NB10W-TW01B and an NB7W-TW01B. I searched for info about this topic online but I couldn't find anything that worked for me, I saw an article from OMRON where they connect two NB's to the CP series, but in my case, NB designer doesn't allow me to insert more than one HMI in the same project, I also found something similar on a youtube video that gave me an idea about how to connect multiple HMIs exporting the pks file and importing it to another HMI project but I still can´t figure out how to add both to my PLC. I would thank you a lot if you could help me with this because I know it's not a rare implementation, just I haven´t found the right way to do it. I also leave the links to the Omron article and the youtube video I found. https://www.myomron.com/index.php?action=kb&article=1554 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXx5lut7G9I
  13. Hi, Could anyone help me out on how to extract the digits present in a string in sysmac studio... Thanks in advance !!!
  14. Hi, I have quite a noobie question. I want to create a function block to do some simple operations on 2 variables. Both variables are In/Outs (see picture attached). How can I make this function accept variables regardless of the data type? Given these is just simple math I am able to use the same instructions in REAL, INT, UINT, etc. But, the function block only lets me assign one Data Type to the In/Out variables.
  15. Good day everybody!    I am having issues troubleshooting a machine which is controlled by a VIPA PLC. I must admit that I am not very knowledgeable with this brand so I am a bit hesitant to touch anything. From the machine's supplier I got a .wld file which I could load into an SD card and load into the VIPA PLC itself through a Master Reset procedure. Still, our issue persists so I was wondering if I could somehow extract this .wld file into Speed7 Studio (or another program) to visualize it and try to troubleshoot the issue. Or in another case, if there was a way to directly read the currently loaded program from the PLC.    As I said, I had never worked with this brand before so I am being a little overly cautious with what I touch in this PLC.    Thanks for your help! 
  16. Is it possible to give a physical proximity switch or photo eye input a value to change a vfd's speed. Speed up or slow down when it has been triggered.

  18. I encountered an issue that technical support was not exactly able to help me out with, and I wanted to share what I learned here for the next guy. Specifications: Omron NA5 HMI v1.10 connected to NJ PLC via Ethernet Issue: Made a change to a screen where I copied and pasted a button from a different screen.  The screen where the button was copied to had some sort of issue, but it was still able to compile and transfer to the HMI.  It worked for several days until the HMI was power cycled by maintenance, and it was stuck in a black loading screen saying "Initialising Variable System" with a scrolling wheel and green LED on the HMI panel.  It stayed in this loop indefinitely.  The HMI still had a ping, could be connected to from Sysmac Studio, and could be transferred to and from.  Troubleshooting section of the HMI mentions something about initializing failure with a red LED which required a system recovery, but no description for this state. Troubleshooting: Power cycled the HMI, but this resulted it getting stuck back in the same loop. Connected with Sysmac Studio with most recent backup and transferred from the HMI to get the current program.  Before transferring in this synchronize step, I could see a page that was on the target device that wasn't in the source.  I'm not exactly sure how it got there as it wasn't in my backup, but I had green in the comparison list when I shouldn't have.   Reverted program changes, downloaded to the HMI, and power cycled.  Still stuck in black screen with same message. After several other modifications, I eventually had a heavily stripped down program of the backup and downloaded to HMI.  Power cycled with same message. Resolution: In Sysmac Studio under HMI View, select HMI from ribbon, select Clear All Memory, confirm the target device, and select OK.  Once this has factory reset, I made sure the IP address was configured as necessary, connected, transferred backup, and all is well with the HMI now.  Even after loading a backup from several months ago, I could not clear this issue without a factory reset. Hope this helps!
  19. Hi all, I have an application where two buttons are created: End Batch: "Momentary Push Button" that modifies the value of a tag. Print Report: "Display Print Button" that generates PDF with a screenshot of the current screen. I would like to mix both buttons into one single button that does this functionality at once. I have been reviewing forums and it seems that the only way to do that would be by using VBA code but I believe that this is not available on FactoryTalk View ME but only on SE. Would anyone know a way of printing a PDF screenshot + modifying a tag at the same time and with a single button on FactoryTalk View ME? Thank you!
  20. FactoryTalk Studio Crashing

    I had FactoryTalk ME and SE Studio V12 on my Windows 10 machine. A few days ago I needed to use to V10 for some alarm functions and because FT will not let you have multiple versions on one laptop, I had to downgrade to V10. Everything had been working fine until the uninstall of V12 and the install of V10. Whether in ME or SE, and even in a newly created project, opening any display crashes Studio. I have attempted two clean installs and can't seem to get it fixed. It feels more like a Windows OS issue but we're a bit stumped. Anyone else run into this?
  21. Dear Experts, We are facing one issue to get a ASCII serial pump data into FactoryTalk SCADA tags. Though, we get to communicate with Pump with VBA form and able to control the pump and get its flow status, can set the flow as well. Now our requirement is to fetch the pump flow and set the flow from FactoryTalk SCADA screen (using tags) How to get the data received in VB script into tag??? Any sample code for the same will be more helpful. Thanks in advance.
  22. I have 23 Micrologix 1400s and I want to take the same register, N100:99, out of each one and put in a single array in a CompactLogix L18ER. From what I have tried, it only seems like I can only map a range of integers, N100:77-N100:100, to the array and not an individual register to a particular element. (For example, mapping N100:99 from machine 16 to Selected_Model[15]) Can you map to individual elements in an array? If so, are there any instructions on how to do so? Thank you in advance for reading my post!
  23. Hello Guys, I am using a nx102-9000 CPU and trying to communicate explicitly to a Telsonic Mag Generator. I have done this on a CJ2M & an Allen Bradley Processor successfully before but am struggling with sysmac. I will attach some screen shots of the AB message instruction because it is much more simple then the CJ2M (required pretty much a full function block made). If anyone wants to see the CJ2M block let me know. I am working right from the sysmac manual using the CIP OPEN, READ, SEND, & CLOSE. Once it is working I will write as well.  I am getting stuck right on the first part "CIP OPEN" I am using a route of '02\10.203.21.40' I am unsure what the 02\ means. I am just copying it from the example. The IP Is correct. Below is the picture of my 1C05 Error. Which in the manual is confusing because they have a 1C error and an 05 error separately.  Another question (once i can open a connection) is in the CIPRead the 'srcdat' I am not really sure what this is? Everything i've used before is an instance number, class, and attribute number (used in the CIPSend Logic From Allen Bradley MSG Instruction & Current Sysmac logic shown in pictures as well. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or need any additional information. Thanks, Kevin
  24. I have a global sidebar that has all of my page navigation buttons.  Is there a way to hide a certain button based on the current page that is displayed (i.e. "Manual" button is invisible when the Manual screen is displayed)?  I know how to make a button visible/invisible based on a tag or expression, but I don't know how to do it based on the current page.
  25. Dear all. I have the issued with Sysmac Studio 1.30. it can not show the Library setting and Library create. just show the reference only. can you pls help me this issued. Many thanks.
