  1. Hi all,  I want to ask some questions regarding Ethernet Communication with FX3U PLC series. I have 2 PLCs of FX3U series (FX3U-48M and FX3U-64M) and I want to monitor its data (input and output) using ethernet communication in real time. My questions are: 1. Does FX3U PLC have ethernet port so I can connect it directly to my Laptop/PC? 2. If no, do I need to use FX3U-ENET-ADP and can it be used for 2 PLC or only 1? 3. What software do I need to use to configure the communication between PLC and FX3U-ENET-ADP? 4. Does this configuration change the existing PLC program? 5. Can i transmit the data wireless-ly using some kind of ethernet to wifi adapter and what additional hardware do i need for that?  
  2. hello all, I plan the work with project to monitoring waterpump yaskawa and power meter scheider,, I want monitor all of that from the office using  EcoWebServerⅢ and ecomonitor plus,, has anyone ever integrated them all?
  3. Hello all I am have FX3G PLC, where i am trying to use SPD function for speed monitoring and controling. currently i am working on software only. I am using x4 as input (s1) , sk1000 (s2), and d4 (D) in monitoring mode when i am forcing X4 to ON/OFF ,  there is no any value change occure on d4 i have tried to change the s2 value from k1000 to k10000, but not fruitful i need your valuable support to confirm that my primary setup is correct or not and what things are required/missing attached program screeshot  
  4. Monitoring a register

    How do you ensure a time value in a memory register coming from an external device is constantly changing in an omron cj2 plc and trigger an alarm when it stops. At my company we scan in a work order with a barcode scanner tied to a different network than the one the plc is communicating to. We use a specific register in memory to determine if these two networks are communicating. We use a date time value in seconds going to that specific register, as long as the time continues to run we know we have a communication link. If that time ever stops in that register we know the communication link is severed. I need to know if there is logic that can be written in the plc to notify an operator when there is no communication link.
  5. Hello Everyone, We made a video about the simple explanation of the settings of the abb acq580 driver in the stage of water level control in multi-motor dirty and clean water cycle systems using the automatic commissioning feature of the ABB ACQ580 driver. Your comments and feedbacks are very important for us.  Video: Youtube            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JANGnykYYyw (For those who can't see the link) The video in our language(Turkish) but we put english subtitles. If you got any question, feel free to ask.  Thank you.
  6. To Whoever might read this: I am currently a journeymen electrician in CA with 12 years experience in the installation, Maintenance and design of commercial electrical systems. I have limited Industrial experience, but I know enough to get myself around without blowing myself up or the customer and their infrastructure. Recently, I have taken a few online courses on PLC programming using RSLogix Micro Lite. I realize this is very entry level stuff, but I thoroughly enjoy the process of forming ladder logic and problem solving and I believe my experience in electrical theory and installation has helped me understand the natural flow of this logic. My interest in this field goes back 10 years or so and I am just now getting around to learning the languages and logic behind the PLC's that I have built entire electrical infrastructures around. With that said, as a full time service electrician who just landed a job in the wastewater electrician/mechanic field, I am seeking opportunities to learn and grow in some form of internship or unpaid position as long as the workload is either remotely operable, or somewhere based out of the greater Sacramento, CA area.   I do not want to sound picky, but I am a young father with a full time career, newly married and a busy full time job schedule to keep up with. SO, I am definitely interested in any opportunity that will give me experience to add to my abilities as a programmer for future ventures. Thank you for your consideration!   MtHowe15 P.S. I am also TOTALLY up for any hints and tips as to what a good next step would be towards gaining experience!
  7. I have a level measurement system by fmcw radar (Rosemount tankradar), for a filling-emptying process, of very large water chambers. Very sporadically, the radar is momentarily lost and measures 4 to 7 feet below the actual level, only when filling the water chamber.  Sometimes the measurement freeze in the middle of the filling process.  Due to the criticality of the process, this behavior is dangerous, as it can cause flooding inside the plant This behavior is very sporadically so we are baffled about the root cause of this problem.
  8. Hello, I'm looking for a simple data logging software, something that doesn't require any programming skills. Thank you!
  9. CJ2m and NB10

    hello guys, My situation is, I have an HMI nb10 and PLC CJ2M-cpu31. My question is, how can I monitor my system with this two set up of Omron device thru online or web base . They are connected via ETN cable. What should I do and what are the ways to monitored it. please help me guys. Thank you.
  10. I'm doing some remote support on an FX5U with GX Works3 on the remote desktop. I've been doing this for a couple of weeks without difficulty. Yesterday the ladder monitoring stopped working. There is no ladder contact monitoring showing and D registers and timer values are blank. The Watch windows are working correctly. Online Write Monitor is selected in each case. All Tools | Options seem correct and match my local copy of GX Works3 that I used on site. Any ideas?  
  11. Current Monitoring

    Greetings, I've been having some issues with a vacuum pump breaker tripping... I think I've figured out the problem and resolved it but I noticed that several of the other motors have current monitoring on the HMI but the person who set this up is no longer with us.  I'm wondering what I need besides an analog input for my control logix processor (which I have) to setup this project.  I'm not sure if the other motors are just monitoring one leg of the 3 phases or if they are somehow showing total current?  any ideas and recommendations would be greatly appreciated.   thanks,
  12. PAROCK1 for HMI/SCADA View File Now a software solution is available for your Modbus (MB) needs in Rockwell/Allen-Bradley Control Logix or Compact Logix (Clgx) family processors, instead of a traditional 3rd party hardware like Prosoft MVI-56, Molex SST-SR4-CLX-RLL etc.  It is an Add-on instruction (AOI) for PLC/PAC firmware v16 or later, (other solutions are available for pre v16 systems).  For hardware interface, use PLC’s channel 0 (serial) or TCP/IP Interface module(s) to have as many MB TCP/IP devices or serial devices.  (Some limits apply based on system configurations, Comm. settings depending on HW used.)

  13. Simulation in Foundation Fieldbus

    Hi Guys,  Did anyone performed the process value simulation of Rosemount 5300 Level Transmitter (FF Communication) using Emerson 475 communicator? The simulation jumper is not available physically on the device. The only simulation option in the hand held communicator available in the following path.  Configure>>Manual Setup>>Classic View>>Advanced Transducer Block>>Parameters1.. But that option too is highlighted and not editable. Can anybody help me how to simulate the value from device so that I can check in my host DCS (Siemens PCS7). Thanks in Advance, GJ 
  14. Can I use a touch panel like magelis (schneider electric) or Panel View (AB) with a stand alone PLC to monitor the level of a silo in real time or would have to be a SCADA system?
  15. Hello, anyone know how to make a logic that monitors the change in position of a carriage through some rails ?. In my application I measure the position of the carriage by means of a laser sensor and I have to detect if the laser beam is interrupted when the carriage is stationary or moving. I have implemented a logic as the adjunct file, but doesn't work.
