  1. I am trying to use Reusable files, but it is greyed out. Is there a setting that needs to be enabled to activate it? I am using CX-Programmer v 9.74 Update 1: Apparently, when you create a data structure this gets greyed out  
  2. I have a 1747-L30B SLC Brick and it is set to load from EEPROM on boot S:5/8, Error S:1/10, and Run S:1/12. I need to make changes to the program and then store it to EEPROM via "Comms>EEPROM>Store to EEPROM."  When I attempt to store the program with changes, it displays the message "Insufficient Memory Module Size." I assumed the EEPROM memory was maxed out, but I also uploaded the existing program currently stored to EEPROM, made no changes, and attempted storing it back to EEPROM and received the same message. Any advice?

  7. 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.
  8. Hi, I have inserted new RTD module into in my SLC500 as replacement to defected RTD module however the module LED is enabled but the channel LED's are blinking. I have checked the following: In the advanced I/O configuration the module configuration is shown as expected In the data file word format it is not corresponding to the channel preferences What should I do and how to fix the word bits?        
  9. Hello Im trying to read from my PLC but i cannot see the program file.  However, if i try to compare it using other file program, i could see the program file. Is their any restriction in my software?
  10. Hello, I have some files for a piece of equipment but do not have the RSlogix software to view the code. It is for a SLC 5/02 plc. Would anyone be willing to convert the files to pdf for me, it would be greatly appreciated.

  11. Folks, we have a set of Mitsubishi Q12PRHCPU (redundant) running effortless since many years. CPU-A as standby and CPU-B as Control. Recently we noticed BATT low alarm on CPU-B. So we arranged for a spare battery Q6BAT and started the procedure as per manual(attached procedure and flow chart). We did memory copy from Control to standby (as prescribed precaution) and did the Reset of Standby PLC CPU-A. Memory copy from B to A completed successfully 100%. But the BACKUP LED did not turn Green from Red & Error LED kept flickering on standby CPU-A. CPU-B remain in Control but backup LED turned RED. From system monitoring we found that there is a Error 6000 (FILE DIFF.) observed in One of the .QPG (program 00-MDBUS.QPG). We tried to reset it but were not successful. We are surprised that why does the program differs when it was copied from CPU-B to CPU-A using the memory copy. Still we did the VERIFY and found no difference between the programs in CPU-A & CPU-B.  Can anyone explain the cause of this issue and the solution. Please note that the CPU-B is still in control and plant is running. Backup LED on both CPU are red which means (redundancy loss) and error LED on standby CPU-A is flickering RED. There is no error in the CPU-A (Control) -we checked this using the GX Developer. Also attached here are the image of the error and error help. Thanks in advance.

  12. Sorry if this is covered elsewhere, but my search hasn't revealed anything yet.  I have a number of PanelView graphics created with FactoryTalk View ME and some use a lot of Parameter Files, which link to popup faceplates. So a large number tags are represented with parameter files, which, when clicked on screen, then pop-up an appropriate faceplate, based on tag type or category etc.  I am still digging into the very elaborate FT View ME manual, but at 500 pages, that's quite a deep study.  But I don't see the linkage between the tag's parameter file and how it specifies which faceplate to pop up, and I've not yet found a good article other than keep digging into that FT manual. There does not appear to be a linkage entry in the parameter file itself, where I would have expected it.  Nor do I see any "hot spot" click type event code in the display itself, which would also make sense.  Is it in the PLC code itself?  I would not have expected that, since they seem to be keeping the FT environment self-contained. But there must be some sort of table or linkage somewhere that I'm over looking. Thanks in advance for anyone's thoughts & guidance on this.  Other parts of FT HMI screen development does seem intuitive, just not this dynamic linking.
  13. Hi all, I'm enhancing an Ethernet IP driver but only just learning the ropes in terms of Allen-Bradley PLCs. I'm presently focussing on that part of the driver which specifically supports SLC/500 & MicroLogix 1400, for which I have one controller of each type for testing purposes. I can already cater for a range of standard file types: integer, float, binary, input, output, string, counter, timer, control, status, and this is working well. However, by working with RSLogix500, I can see that there are other data file types which can be hosted in these controller types (dependent on model) and, indeed for test purposes, I have actually created instances of them as follows: ASCII (at A21, 20 elements) for both SLC & ML1400 Long (at L22, 10 elements) for ML1400 Message (at MG23, 8 elements) for ML1400 PID (at PD24, 4 elements) for ML1400 Programmable Limit Switch (at PLS25, 3 elements) for ML1400 Routing Info (at RI26, 3 elements) for ML1400 Extended Routing Info (at RIX27, 3 elements) for ML1400 Now, the driver obviously uses standard DF1 PCCC data types (see below) to read/write individual elements/sub-elements of the file types that I can already support -- and I can see that there's a file type listed below for ASCII. •80 to 83 hex: reserved •84 hex: status •85 hex: bit •86 hex: timer •87 hex: counter •88 hex: control •89 hex: integer •8A hex: floating point •8B hex: output logical by slot •8C hex: input logical by slot •8D hex: string •8E hex: ASCII •8F hex: BCD However, my question is this: since there are no hex file types corresponding to non-elementary data types such as L, MG, PID, PLS, RI and RIX, what file type do I specify in my DF1 PCCC packets to read/write the elements/sub-elements of these six data types ? Thanks in advance.
  14. In my research on NJ processors and 1S servo programming, I came across an HMI graphic that I would like to use.  There was a file download that I think had something to do with it..."Machine.IAG"..but I don't know what an IAG file is and if it even has anything to do with an NA5 display.  Is it a Graphics file I can load into my HMI program to use?   Thanks,

  19. I'm attempting to make a backup of a program, complete with comments. I go connect to the PLC over Ethernet, and select Use Upload File to merge the comments from an original copy of the program. After that, I go file-saveas to backup the program. However the new saved file, complete with comments is only 134 KB, and the very original copy of the program is 230 KB, from 2003. Is there a reason for this, the program hasn't shrunk in size, only minor tweaking of some span calibration numbers.
  20. Hey, I recently started trying my hand at creating function blocks. At the moment I'm trying to create a PID function block, however I keep getting this error: "ERROR: Variable does not have enough size." No idea why it does this. Can anyone help?  
  21. MBE Driver can't save config file

    Hello!I am using MBE Driver v7.46b on Windows Server 2012 R2. Problem is that I can't save config file. I can edit Channels, devices and data blocks, I can see incomming values, I save a file without any message. But config file is not saved. In Event viewer I get error as you can see on picture. It says: Error writing to system registry: Driver App 00000001 \Driver defaults. Other error says: Error writing to system registry: ServerMsg 00C54BB8 \Driver defaults.Is it server or driver problem? Please help. At the moment I can't edit anything in driver so I can't configure it to use it with my SCADA iFIX 5.8

  23. Exceed maximum step size

    Hi guys!   Need some help from the real specialists!   I`am used to work normally with Scheider Unity and make my program`s always in function blocks. Now working on my first GXworks2 project, and programmed the whole project also in FBD.   I have an FX2N-32MR plc, and defined in the configuration the maximum step size of the cpu to 8000 steps. I have compiled my program successfully, but the result gives an program size of 10217 steps. (and i`m not finished programming yet)   Converting the program to ladder or ST is not possible i think....?  (and i`am not very familiar with those languages) Add additional memory card is also not possible because of the type installation. Did have some self-made function blocks inside, but they are very simple.     How is counting of steps working in GXworks2? Are the 8000 steps for the complete project, or per POU, so than split into pou,s will reduce steps??  Strange is when i add one single BIT move block into the program, and compile again. Program size becomes 10229.  (so the one move block is 12 steps?)   Are there any tips for reducing the memory/program  load?     
  24. Hello folks,   I am a rookie, self-training in PLC programming. I have written an SFC exercise (attached ACD file). I also try to call STL written subroutines and add-on instructions, from within the SFC main program. Calling the created subroutine works fine, but calling the add-on instruction fails from a reason which is above my level. I tried, tried and tried different solutions, with no avail. I am either wrong in writing the add-on (perhaps some missing but missing tag ?), or wrong is calling it. Can someone please give me a hint on what I do wrong ?   Thank you, Radu PS . I use Studio 5000 v24, combined with RSLogix 5000 Emulator.     SFC_trial.ACD
  25. Hi All, I am pretty new at electrical design for PLC control panels. We are a UL508A shop, so this is the code I refer to most. Something struck me as odd when I was trying to size wire for this control panel. UL508A 28.3.1 says this: The required size of the field wiring terminal shall not be less than 14 AWG (2.1 mm2) and shall be determined by: a) Calculating the required ampacity per 28.3.2 – 28.3.6; and b) Determining the minimum field wiring conductor size from Table 28.1 having a corresponding ampacity that is equal to or greater than the required ampacity from (a). How can the minimum wire size be #14 AWG? We use #16 AWG for wire to the PLC modules? Are we breaking code or is there something I am missing? Also, understanding code books can be difficult. Is there a website or place I can go to get a plain English translation? I feel like I will read a sentence over and over again to try to understand what they are saying, and feel like there's is a much easier way to say it than the way it is written. For example, "28.3.1 b" ……...what is it really saying?
