  1. Hi! I hope you could help me with the problem I've been having with this HMI. Usually I use the Instruction-based alarms (ALMD) in the program of my PLC Controller (ControlLogix 5580) to be able to send Alarm Messages to my View Designer Panel View. However, on this new HMI I'm getting the alarm trigger on the Panelview (I get the prompt on the Alarm Summary, and get the Alarm TAG of the ALMD Instruction associated with the alarm), but for some reason the Alarm Message is on blank. It´s the same for all the alarms on the controller. I checked again and the "Message" parameter of the ALMD is configurated, and even test just typing "a" as an Alarm Message to see if it was that the string was too long, but even with that the message didn't show up. Can you help me understand what I'm doing wrong?
  2. Is there a work around for using ActiveX controls when the FactoryTalk View ME edition does not match the Panelview firmware revision? I have FactoryTalk version 13 and the Panelview is 10 (Panelview Plus 7 Perf 1500). Trying to use the Microsoft Date and Time Picker Control.  Thanks
  3. Hi all,I'm completely new to ASCII and trying to figure out where I'm going wrong here.Application: I need to send 2d barcode data to a KGK Jet model CCS3000L Inkjet printer. Only protocol possibility is ASCII. PLC I have is a Micro850, and the only port option for ASCII is the serial port. I modified one end of a 2707-NC11 cable to connect PLC TxD to printer RxD, PLC RxD to Printer TxD, and PLC SG to Printer SG. I jumpered CTS and RTS at the printer connector, and the 2707 cable I'm using doesn't have wires on the Micro850 CTS or RTS pins.Printer company verified that I can just jumper RTS and CTS on their side and not connect their DTR and DSR pins (since I'm not using hardware handshaking). I don't really need any flow control for the application ( I don't think...again, ASCII noob here).Do the CTS and RTS on the PLC side need to be jumpered? Does the DCD pin need to be jumpered or connected to something if I'm not using handshaking?I downloaded the Micro800 ASCII read and write functions and function blocks from Rockwell library, and they seem to be working, except that I keep getting ABL error id "7". This error states, "Cannot complete ASCII send or receive because channel configuration has been shut down using the channel configuration dialog box." I have the serial port enabled and configured to ASCII, no handshaking, baud 9600 same as printer, no parity check, 1 stop bit, character length of 8.Any help in pointing out what I'm doing wrong or things to try would be greatly appreciated!   ASCII_TEST.ccwsln

  5. 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
  6. 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!
  7. 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?  
  8. Hi guys I have an control logix plc im looking for a module which is the same as 1769-ascii module. I know that module is for compact logix. Unfortunately i didnt find a good one for that purpose.  Anybody can help with that ? Thanks ahead.         
  9. I am starting an upgrade process for all my SLC50* PLCs and working out the communication of my machines for the upgrade. I ran into this complication I don't understand. I have 2 machines that work together using 1 HMI. Both machines have their own PLCs. Both are running SLC5/02 to 1747-AIC link coupler then to the 2711P-RN6 interface with the DH-485 communications running parallel. I don't understand how this works, or how I might possibly upgrade the communications from 2 PLC's into 1 HMI without linking the PLC's programming first. (Also, a complication I am working on, I only have the Runtime file, not the ME file for the HMI program). 
  10. Sorry new to working with PLC's,  I am trying to write text to a ST file on an RSLOGIX 500 machine, its for a LED display, I am just trying to update the screen to new texts, it all works I am just having trouble inputting the text properly into the string file. I would like to read about it if anyone can point me to a good document or manual that can explain what characters to use?  I see many posts about using VBA using Excel work on RSLOGIX 500? But would like to know how to do it manually first.  Thank you
  11. 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!
  12. 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?
  13. Hi Everyone,   I'm having an issue with getting an OMRON CP1H with an EIP21 module using explicit messaging back and forth with an AB PLC.  I'm using a CompactLogix L16ER to test the setup in place of the future Micro850 that will be used.  I've used the Network configurator to set up tag sets with instance IDs for the consume/produced tags.  The data being transmitted is 240bytes in the form of an array of DINTs.  On the AB side I've setup a get and set attribute message with the setup as follows; Get Attribute (Read):  Service Code: 10 Class ID: 4 Instance ID: 111 (Matches Network Config) Attribute ID: 3  Set Attribute (Write) Service Code: E Class ID: 4 Instance ID: 101 (Matches Network Config) Attribute ID: 3 The MSG command executes as expected on the AB without error.  The get attribute works beautifully, but the set attribute completes with no response on the OMRON (no write).   Am I missing something here?  Thanks!
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. Hi, I have old E600 HMI and i want to convert the program to new c2 or x2 series hmi, is it possible to convert program to new one by some procedure or software, Thanks Amin
  17. Hello people! I'm using a NX1P2 controller combined with a CIF105 serial card installed on it. For my project, I get some data that are in ASCII form and I want to keep that form when are extracted in a .csv file. I have established the communication for getting the data but, the problem is that I cannot extract the data in the ASCII form. Data extraction comes in Hex form. I use the NX_SerialRcv instruction for the communication and the AryToString conversion for the data. When using the Watch Tab Page I can display the data in ASCII form but, as far as I understand, this is only for online monitoring. I went through topics here and OMRON manuals for finding any Hex to ASCII conversion instruction but the only info I came across was for CX controllers which cannot be implemented to NX controller. Is there any similar instruction for NX controller or I should create a new Library for the conversion? Any tips and/or a sample would be highly appreciated! Thanks! Man31    
  18. Now I working on omron CP1H PLC, i'm receiving ASCII number from another PLC which is something like this  "#3031 #3030 #3030 #3030" which mean 01000000. How to convert the ascii number to real number or bcd without separate them? I know how to convert them which is using HEX but its turn out the number will separate into this 0100  and 0000.
  19. Dear friends.. I want HMI panel view 300 software.. Is this available in net or free of cost in web sites
  20. Friends kindly help me I need to create ton and counter macro function in factorytalk view studio 
  21. Hello All   I have 6 x SLC5/03s that I am trying to connect to a windows PC that is running FactoryTalk View Studio Enterprise. To do this I have connected Serial to Ethernet gateways (MGATE EIP3170) to each CH0 serial port of the SLC5/03s. The EIP3170s are connected to a switch that has the windows PC connected to it . The EIP3170s and the PCs are all on the same subnet. In FT View SE I have added 6 x Serial DF-1 drivers for each SLC5/03. When I add the drivers, I can see three of the SLC5/03s. If I try to add any more Serial DF-1 drivers I loose communication with all of the SLC5/03s and the diagnostic window in FT View SE I see the following error message: DF1: Failed to open '\\.\COMx', error = 0x000005AA. When I phoned Rockwell Automation what this error message means they told me it is a "Fatal access error" which means that the EIP3170s are incompatible with FT Linx.  Does anyone know if it is actually possible to connect more than 3 EIP3170s to FT Linx? I am sure I have seen an article on how to do this but I can't seem to find it again

  24. Hi guys, I am trying to open an application and i keep getting this error. Failed to initialize the service: {3F883B87-2208-11D4-B0E7-001083022E04} Does anyone know how to get rid of this error? Regards,
  25. Here is my setup - Factorytalk view SE V 7.0 with Primary and secondary servers. System gets replicated from primary to secondary once in a week. After the primary server was restarted due to some issue, all the HMI tags lost their values. 'Retentive' checkbox was checked on all HMI tags, initial value field is blank. According to the description of 'Retentive' field in the help file, the HMI tag should hold its value even after the server is restarted if the box is checked. Also, secondary server should have held those same values while primary was rebooting, but as of now all my HMI tags field are blanks. Am I looking at a patch roll up here?
