  1. Dear forum, I am facing a trouble at the moment and hoping somebody can assist. I have one HMI software, GT Designer 3, HMI: GS2107 and/or GT2107, the software works so far so fine. The software is used on several products, I dont want to maintain two or even more software versions. Two serial devices are connect: 1x MODBUS RS-485 1x MODBUS RS-232. The data transfer is done via DDT, no direct calls. The DDT transfer the MODBUS address to the internal GD-Registers. The GD-Registers are used within the HMI. My trouble is that in some cases, there is no RS-232 device connected. This creates time outs, slows down the HMI and its just not nice looking (I have a warning implemented "WARNING NO CONNECTION TO SERIAL DEVICE RS-232". Is there a way, that I can select (retained) that the RS-232 is connected / or not? Once the software is configured "NO RS-232 CONNECTED" I can handle the rest of the software.   Anybody an idea how to do this? Many thanks.
  2. Hi experts, i have a problem, i did the upload of my software with GT Desinger 3 on the GOT, but i don't see the PLC variables because my other  software did with GX Works3 isn't linked with the uploading. Is there a way to connect both softwares to the uploading withouth a PLC?
  3. Hi everyone, is there a way to put the numerical input keyboard in a specific position when i click on the numerical input? Thanks a lot.
  4. I have set up a timer in exostructure expert basic and am trying to get the contdown value from the preset of 20 to show in vijeo designer but it tells me the %tm0.v is read only and cant find the variable in Vijeo designer to show it. Does anyone know how to do this?  
  5. I am attempting to download a Vijeo designer application to a remotely situated Magelis HMI over the cloud by means of a VPN. Vijeo designer's built-in help indicates that this is possible and has provided an example.  BTW, I am using Vijeo Designer basic v1.1 & the HMI model is GXU3512.   However, I find the fields for router IP and TCP port nos. all deactivated. How to get pass this roadblock? I'll appreciate any suggestions.   Thanks a million
  6. 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

  8. Hi Experts,  In GT Designer 3 would there be a progressive number of the active window screen? For example, if I am in the window screen 5, the program retrieves in a variable the value 5. Many thanks in advance.
  9. Good morning experts, i have a little problem with a Alarm display (user) and i hope with your huge experience you will may help me. Thank you very much in advance  Let me explain best. I would like use a slider to control a Alarm display (user), i tried to do it, but the slider doesn't scroll up/ scroll down like i will want. It doesn't scrolling through the pages and it heighlights just some alarm. Could you give me a bit advice, please? 
  10. 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
  11. GOT2000 Recipes

    Hi I'm new to GOT2000 Hmi and I have a problem about creating recipes on (GT2107). Do I need sd card or usb memory stick to save recipe or I can save it in inside memory of hmi?  Can someone told me how to do it step by step cause I only have errors when I want to save or load recipe.  Thanks in advie 
  12. Hi, Is there any way to read current status of the MES Interface connection and show it on the screen? Recently I've had a situation when MES Interface wasn't able to reach a SQL Server (there was an error in the diagnostics window), but the "Access error notification setting" bit was 0.
  13. Hi, I'm looking for help with the string exchanging between GT25 and AB CompactLogix. I'm reading recipe data from SQL via MES interface to the local devices such as GD3000. I want to move the string held in the registers GD3000-3009 (20 characters) to the string tag in the Allen Bradley. The problem is that in the scripting I cannot enter the AB Tag, because when I imported the CSV with the string tags their data type is STRING, and the scripting in GOT accepts only numerical datatypes such as WORD, etc. Has anyone found a way to handle that?
  14. "PLC No Response" NB HMI Omron

    Hello Everybody, I continued to work on project this morning but I seem to be plagued with the "PLC No Response" error. This error will only come up when I assign a PLC address to a particular object.  I have followed the steps in the post(https://forums.mrplc.com/index.php?/topic/39885-nb-designer-hmi-plc-no-response-error-solved/) to try and clear the error but am having no luck. In the screenshot I have assigned the large "Start Process" as a bit button with the write address being W50.00. When the button is pressed it should trigger a bit in the PLC but this is when the error appears. During this test I am connected to the PLC and in run mode with the PLC and HMI address assigned correctly. I have read and followed the section in the manual regarding "PLC No Response" but still no positive results.  I just want to check that there is nothing I have done at a programmer end that could cause these issues. I am happy to provide files. Thanks, Ryan  
  15. Good Afternoon, I am wanting to do two things with and ORMON PLC and HMI with CX-Programmer and NB-Designer. 1. I want to display the current time from PLC on HMI with the real time clock. 2. I want to be able to enter a time on the HMI which will be compared to the PLC time and will stop a process when when the entered time is equal to the actual PLC time.  If I can have some help with this that would be a great help. Thanks,
  16. How to use NB Data Logging

    Good Afternoon All, Just wondering if anyone would have any example code of using the Data Logging on NB designer? I am wanting to use a PID controller and display set point and process variable etc. I have looked in the manual but a coded example would be extremely helpful.    Hope you have a good weekend. Thanks
  17. CX-Designer || Get error history

    Hello ! I am an beginner automation engineer and my new task is to export all alarm/events that occured from NS5 HMIs. Is it possible to do this using the pc? I am currently using a card to get those. (using the "hidden'' HMI's menu, accessed by pressing and holding on the display).  Thank you very much!
  18. Hello there,   I am using Schneider HMI for the past few years, it's very versatile and easy to design graphics.   Now i started using OMRON HMIs and found that is weird to draw graphics in Omron NB-Designer.   I have Example, Look at the attached screenshot of both software, in the case of Schneider if I stretch a button or any object it will remain in the same good shape. but in the case of Omron, if you stretch any object it doesn't remain in the original shape. (check the attached images.)   Please suggest Ideas about designing a good Omron Hmi, Sample backup is always welcome. The image link is below, I am not able to upload it here. https://we.tl/t-HV9IOnyfAP  
  19. Hello Everyone,   Make - OMRON HMI Model - NB7W-TW01B Software - NB Designer   Suppose I have more than one number input display on a screen of HMI. When I touch and enter the data in any one of them and press enter, the keyboard not closing automatically. in sted of auto close, the cursor moves to the next number input display to enter the data. How to auto-close the keyboard after entering the data in any number input display.
  20. Hi Experts, I would like to know is there any possibility to make a switch that can make exponential increment to a data. i know how to make a switch to increment data in fixed intervals with a switch but im trying to make a switch when you press it continuesly it should increase the gains rapidly over time. is this possible and if yes can someone explain me how? im attaching a sample image how i want to make two buttons to increase and decrease a data. thank you in advance guys. kind regards, sathu.
  21. Hello all I am trying to figure out if its possible to save a screenshot of every screen on a HMI to usb at the same time, so i have currently created a button on a screen that saves the screenshot to external memory, is it possible to make it save a screenshot for every screen instead of just one? maybe i would have to create a kind of function on the plc that cycles through the pages and then takes a screenshot of each? any help would be appreciated currently using a NB7W and a CJ2 cpu 31 although it would be nice for this to work with everything
  22. Hi there! I'm trying to communicate HMIS5T HMI with a Modicon Micro TSX3722001 PLC. The communication is OK, but whenever I try to enter some data into a numeric display I get an error that says "Method or function in Communications System unsupported" and data won't change on PLC's Animation Table. Also, if I modify a variable's value in PL7 Pro, the value in the HMI numeric display won't change properly. It displays the last digit of the binary format of the number (let's say I write a "3" on PL7 Pro, then I get a "1" on the numeric display, despite all data types being UINT, and all ranges are OK. Then if I write any number which binary version ends in 0, I get that 0 on the numeric display, nothing else. Again, all data types and ranges are OK). Changing variables' source on Vijeo Designer to Internal doesn't seem to work. So I'm wondering what else must I do in order to send and receive data from/to HMI and PLC?    Thanks in advance and I hope you can help me! Update: Got this solved. For anyone wondering, Vijeo Designer 6.2 SP8 it's kinda buggy with Unitelway communication. There's a hotfix that solves this problem, provided free by Schneider.
  23. NB-designer V1000

    Hello. Can someone help with an example program in the nb-designer application for communication with drive v1000 yaskawa after modbus RTU (rs422). It was very important to me that the reference speeds were shown in this example (d1-01; d1-03) could also be acc - dec (c1-01; c1-02) Of course, I have the NB7W panel and the multi drive v1000 yaskawa
  24. 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!
  25. Good day everyone, I recently got NB HMI and program it together with my NX1P2 PLC. I got 2 questions I would like to ask. What I'm trying to achieve is to lock all the button after I start my system or during the pop up screen for confirmation. I tried different methods and it doesn't work. Currently I'm using a direct window Pop-Up screen to cover all the button behind it, but I noticed if I drag the pop up screen, it'll move together. So I wonder, is there any correct methods of doing it? Also, the function key for change screen, I use it for Pop up screen but why it only spawn on the top left of the screen instead of the center? Thanks in advance guys!
