  1. Hi All, I need to start PLC Data Logging using an SD card in the CPU module for an iQ-R PLC.  I have not attempted this kind of logging before and I was wondering about any restrictions on the type of SD cards that can be used. The documentation I have found says "SD/SDHC memory card: 32Gb maximum". Does anyone know why can't I use a 64 GB SD card ? (maybe due to addressing limitations?) Also, when I look for SD cards, I see different speeds of data transfer such as 120 MB/s or 100 MB/s and I was wondering if there is any difference as far as the logging is concerned.  Does anyone know if there are any other restrictions, brands that don't work? Useful tips? Cheers    
  2. Q-Series - Operation Error 4100

    Hi guys. I found error on PLC and from PLC diagnostic I found this Operation Error 4100 as per attach picture. FYI, there is no SD card mount onto this PLC. I wonder what is ATA card. This error wont affect the operation. Any advise on what to check?   This ladder is pop up when I clicked, error jump.   Thanks.
  3. R60DA8-G & R60DAI8 ISSUES

    Hello all, We’ve been having some issues with Analogue Output cards (R60DA8-G and R60DAI8) on some projects we’ve been doing and wondered if you could help.   On one site where we are using the R60DAI8 we have the following issues: when a valve is failing on site (wired to the first analogue output channel) the ERR LED comes on for the disconnection detection error, should this error come on with a valve failure/instrument failure or should this be for physical disconnection only? Also, site are reporting that the other valves analogue outputs on the card stop working when this happens. We have had a response previously from Mitsubishi support suggesting that this shouldn’t happen (basically they pointed to noise), could be wiring or it could be caused by external noise. Would replacing the R60DAI8 with an R60DA8-G resolve this issue?   General issue for both R60DAI8 and R60A8-G: When the Disconnection Detection Error is no longer present the ERR LED is still on so we have had to issue a reset to the “Error clear request” bit of the card (YF) to clear the error (currently a manual action from the HMI). Is there a way that this can auto clear when the detection error is no longer active? The only other way we can see to make this clear automatically is if the card has an error we could periodically issue the “Error clear request”, is there any issue with doing this if there’s no way to set the card to auto reset? The R60DA8-G has a detection auto-clear enable/disable setting but only has 100 times and from the manual this suggests a 100ms period between resets, so does that mean it only checks to auto-clear for 10 seconds the ERR LED is on and requires the “Error clear request”?   Any help with this matter would be much appreciated.
  4. PT property NB series

    hello everyone, I want to ask this setting. If I check this check box, what will happen to the program that I input into the HMI? can someone give me examples for not allow upload and not allow decompile?
  5. hello, anyone. I want to ask about file which is I cant open. I was uploding HMI NB series but the file is only .pkg and when I decompile, it cant be done/ failed.. can anybody help me and explaine how is it can be? I use NB3Q-TW01B. thank you.
  6. Series Six PLC Expanded I/O addressing

    I have a program to convert from Series Six to RX3i and the series six is using expanded addressing. I need help to convert this to standard addressing. I found a manual for this but I still can't figure it out. For example I have  addresses  I1+0201    I1+0203    I1+0205    I1+0206    I1+0207 and need to represent them in RX3i. I attached the 3 page "manual" on extended I/O for reference.   Thank you in advance for looking at this Series 6 Expanded IO Addressing.pdf

  8. Hello, I am trying to create a project in GX Works 3 with a R02 CPU, but in the "New" Tab "Change Module" Tab this CPU doesn't show. However, if i gow to Module Configuration i can select and drag the R02 CPU, but i can't define it as the CPU of the system. Another problem i have is that i need to migrate a A1SH CPU project to an R02 CPU project. From my understanding the software tool for A1SH is GX Developer and for R02 CPU is GX Works 3. Is there a way to convert the project or i need to do a new one and adapt it? Thank you.  
  9. CCM card in series six rack

    I finally got my LM6PC software to communicate with my series six CCM 2 card. The CCM2 has 2 ports. I am trying to use both ports at the same time but when i go online with my lm6pc software it kicks my nematron HMI offline. I believe both ports are independent so i am not sure why the HMI is getting kicked off. I have another CCM card and would be open to having 2 CCM cards in my rack but when i tried this both cards failed (bottom LED in OFF state). FYI - running Win 10 with DosBox 0.74 using docking station com1. Fought this thing for 2 days until i realized i was using the wrong CPU ID.  Project background - replacing series six and genius blocks with RX3i and EP IO. Trying to reverse engineer nematron HMI and wanted to be able to view data tables while surfing the HMI to map out the IO addresses. Thanks for any help. Steve
  10. String Compare Issues

    I am trying to set up a string compare [ $= "Text" D### ] . But it's not passing when it should. So i tried pushing the string to a place holder register [ $= D###1 D##2 ], but its still not matching, but when i just do a double compare [ d= D##1 D##2 ] it passes.    How is my string failing but the numbers obviously match?    Struggling to get picture to attach. Please see here for example.  https://imgur.com/a/w1ckk64

  13. Logicmaster 6 Keyboard Translator Chart

    Hi, I was wondering if anybody could post a photo of the Logicmaster 6 IBM PC keyboard translator chart? This is a 'tear out' page from an appendix in the Logicmaster 6 programming manual. The 'Logicmaster 6 Programming and Documentation Software User Guide' Appendix C refers to this chart as follows: "This appendix contains a keyboard translator chart to use with the IBM-PC, PC-XT, PC-AT, or IBM-compatible personal computer. The chart has been printed in triplicate to provide you with extra copies. The sheet has also been formatted so that you can remove each copy of the chart from the manual for easier reference." All the hard copy manuals I can find have this keyboard chart removed and online pdf copies do not show this page. your help would be appreciated.

  18. I'm editing a dual language project for an NA5 HMI. It's working fine except for the message at startup. To modify the project I've had to update the firmware on the HMI. I'm using Sysmac Studio 1.15. Startup language seems to be set correctly. Any ideas?

  22. Hitachi H-700 Series

      Welcome, How to program this PLC?  
  23. 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
  24. Q and iQ-R series

      Hello,  I want to know, if it is worthwhile to transfer from Q series to iQ-R? Currently our equipment is using Q series, which ss a vacuum coating equipment with about 10 power instruments, 20 gas controllers, and pumps and so on. As for the analog and X, Y points, Q is quite capable.   I can not see any advantage to switch to iQ-R, but some people want to. So I want to know,       1. will Q be outdated in the near future?       2. will use iQ-R cost much more than Q? including peripheral units.       3. has iQ-R really been widely adopted?       4. thoug iQ-R may be powerful, I think use multiple middle size CPU's can be more advantageous,              is this right? Many thanks in advance. Ting    
  25. I have a huge confusion regarding the retentive timers on FX3GE. According to the programming manual for FX3G(image attached), all retentive timers use the EEPROM. This is very confusing to me because the retentive timers are modifying the measured time constantly in an EEPROM register and EEPROM type of memory is known to be write limited. After a couple of million write cycles the EEPROM registers burnout. I've experienced this myself by constantly using the T250 and after a while it became unusable. The timer stopped counting time after some time. This leads to my decision that retentive timers on FX3GE PLCs are something that should бе used only on rare occasions so as to avoid EEPROM memory burnout. If this is true than the real question comes in: What is an alternative for using retentive timers on FX3GE when you want to measure time between two events. The instruction TTMR for teaching timer is appropriate however this instruction does not exist on FX3G series.
