FX3GE communication with KEPServerEX via UDP protocol
vikrantragit05 posted a topic in MitsubishiHi all, I am trying to communicate KEPServerEX with FX3GE vis UDP protocol. I have tried but unable to get data on Kepserver. While configuring communication properties in PLC we have configured PLC IP, PLC Port, Destination IP, but unable to find correct Destination Port. Although we tried various port nos like 49320, 57412, 57512, 56233, 1025, 32402, 57212, 57012, 57612, 57812 but there was bad quality data using UDP For same PLC using TCP/IP we were able to read all tags properly. This change in communication protocol is required as there are some PLCs whose communication port drops after few days of connection establishment (no error logged; can be re established with just restart). Someone from Mitsubishi said to try communication via UDP as it continuously fetch data regardless of kind of response received. If anybody has tried or have any solution, please do share. Thanks
Omron Peripheral Port CJ1M-22 PLC for OPC Data
Jqd84983 posted a topic in OmronHi, I am very inexperienced with Omron hardware so apologies if this is a daft question. I am trying to use Kepware to retrieve data from a CJ1M-22 PLC via the peripheral port using RS-232 and the Toolbus Kepware Driver. The RS-232 is provided by a Brainbox ES-246 Ethernet to RS-232 convertor. I have no problem accessing the PLC using this peripheral port via the programming lead but I wanted to know if anyone had successfully pulled PLC data through this port? Many thanks John
Communication PLC Modicon M221 to Kepware
bujang posted a topic in HMI & SCADAI am using PLC Modicon M221, I want to make communication between PLC Modicon M221 to OPC Kepware by modbus tcp/ip ethernet. In PLC, I use software somachine basic, I set digital input and digital output. And in OPC Kepware my address 00001, but when I switch turn On/Off in PLC, value in OPC Kepware doesnt change. Could you please correct me? Thank you Bujang
Connecting CPM1 to KEPServerEX5
IkBenNietHier posted a topic in OmronHello there, I'm having a problem with connecting my Omron CPM1 PLC with KEPServerEX5. The problem is that I can't find any drivers that support a serial connection with the CPM1. The only driver that comes close to what I'm looking for is the Omron FINS Serial driver, but that one only supports the following devices: Even if i choose the CVM1 (that has simular TAG-addresses as the CPM1) I can't get any connection because it requires an ID with the following format (UU.AAA.NNN.) and I have no idea where to get this. I also tried to using the U-CON (user-configurable) driver, but I can't figure out how to get this working. I'm running a program in the CPM1 with a Input(00.01) , Output(10.01) and Timer(T000). I used the Transaction Editor to import these tags in KEPWare: I checked the serial port settings and they are correct. The only thing I'm not sure about is the device ID, but I tried 0 until 5 and I don't think it could be any higher than that. I'm hoping any of you guys is experienced with making a serial connection to KEPWare and is able to help me with this problem. Jimmy
Mitsubishi & Omron -OPC-UA - KEPWARE Server
Karthikeyan_cmps posted a topic in MitsubishiHi,In a project I have four Progressive Pressing Machine. Each machine with different PLC like Mitsubishi 'Q00UCPU' with 'QJ71C24N-R4', 'FX-3U-16M', 'FX2N-128MR' and Omron 'CJ2M-CPU13' with 'SCU41-V1' module.Now my task is to connect all PLC with KEPWARE Server through OPC-UA.Note: There is no Ethernet Port available and existing RS232 port are all connected to all respective HMI'sIn this scenario, I would like to know, do all the PLC that i have mentioned above supports OPC-UA through Ethernet if i add a new Ethernet module to each PLC. So the data transmission will be faster or else should I buy RS232 serial communication module to communicate through OPC-UA.And also i would like to know, what kind of "Industrial Switch" will be perfect for this application.Kindly suggest a best way to prove myself.Thanks in advance
Logging from Mitsubishi iQ series via KepServerEx DataLogger to MSSQL
zajaja posted a topic in MitsubishiHi all, I would like to logg data from Mitsubishi PLC to MSSQL via OPC Kepware, but I have issues to see values correctly I simulate Mitsubishi PLC on OPC, I see values on OPC client correctly ... but when I logg data to MSSQL db via DataLogger I have issues with data ... any of data are displaye as 0, string data as NULL ... What is wrong ? In attached files you can see datatypes on OPC and MSSQL. Thank you
Kepware and Mitsubishi iQ-R Series R08PCPU FAILED READS
Tuang posted a topic in MitsubishiHi everyone, I am trying to use Kepware to communicate with my PLC setup which is the iQ-R Series R08PCPU. I read the documentation which is available at https://www.kepware.com/getattachment/3daf1ac3-5c76-49ce-bbfe-f0fb1015f6cc/mitsubishi-ethernet-manual.pdf I read through the setup for Kepware and the setup procedure for iQ-R series but it still didn't work. From the documentation, it said something about "using special ladder logic to enable ethernet communications is required.", I couldn't find anything about this online. Here what I did in addition to the documentation: - Enabled IP Packet Transfer - Ping the PLC's IP Address which was successful Does anyone have any idea what I didn't do to establish that communication between Kepware and R08PCPU? Thank you in advance.
Editing Device in KEPServerEx for ControlLogix
Falcons75 posted a topic in Allen Bradley / Rockwell AutomationWe're running KEPServerEx 4.5 with the AB drivers to interface with a Siemens WinCC HMI. All we've done is change the L61 processor with an L72 and then KEP shows the incorrect values for the tags. We stick the L61 back in and all is okay. The Device properties haven't changed as the L72 is part of the ControlLogix 5500 family. The IP address is the same as well as the project name, etc. I've checked the properties against the KEP manual and all is okay. The manuals I have don't mention editing a device in KEPServerEx. I feel we've missed something. :hmmm: Any thoughts?
SQL to PLC Communications, Where to go from here?
slwstctt posted a topic in Computer Help and NetworkingI'm very new to PLCs and this sort of thing, so bear with me... Right now I have an SQL server that contains data that I want available on an Allen Bradley PLC. I've already gotten the connection into KepServer working and it generated the tags from the data. I'm able to access all of the data and use it fine with an OPC Client that's on the computer, but I'm unsure of where to go from here. I want these tags populated on the PLC via this OPC server and to remain updated. How do I get the PLC to grab these tags and do that now that they're available via OPC?
No Communication Kepware CQM1
ThomasB posted a topic in CX-ProgrammerHi Guys, I got assigned here on a job and Im trying to figure out to restore communication between an Omron PLC and kepware - kepserver. We have a moxa nport device to convert the serial to TCP/IP ,.. I am able to ping the device itself so the network communication up to there is alright. I must say that before I was asked to verify - a couple of months ago the communication was working fine. Something has happened in between these time which of course nobody knows, and I have to fix it to get it operational again,... I uploaded here some images from the kepware and moxa nport settings if any could assist in what is going wrong - please let me know. 1 more thing. at 1 device I was able to get updates by putting the Scan Mode on a forced setting and requesting each 500ms to pull data. Only thing is that I only get an update every 2minutes while it should be at least every second,. the data value is changing every minute.
