  1. Hi, I am new using SIEMENS. I am programming a KTP 400 Comfort. linked to a S7-1200. I would like to ask you how to do a solution I normally used in OMRON. There, I use an "indirect label" to index the line of a TXT file I want to show in a label of a button or indicator. This is similar to the "list of text" in TIA Portal. However, in OMRON I found the way to updated automatically the TXT file in the HMI using a computer but not using the software of OMRON. So, I would like to know how to do something similar using this SIEMENS HMI. I would like to show a label whose text changes according to the value of an index. However I would like to be able to change the file where the index points (TXT, CSV, etc) but not using TIA Portal. I would program a software to send the updated file automatically under FTP, or under the protocol you suggest me. Thank you very much.
  2. I'm a young Controls Engineer at an integration company, and I need assistance.   I have a client that has about 330 different alphanumeric product numbers broken down by length and width. The operator must be able to select the product number at the HMI to pass along to the robot we are integrating. Is there a way to be able to have the operator select the product number simply, without having to scroll over 300 items in a single control list. The HMI is not chosen yet, so it can be GE, Rockwell/AB, or Automation Direct, but we are using a AB ControlLogix Processor. Racking my brain and I have little VBA/Scripting experience.
  3. Q03UDVCPU

    I am new with PLC's and I am learning how to work with GX Works 2. I have two questions, 1st Question: Using a Q series PLC (Q03UDVCPU) Is it possible to convert the language of a project from ladder logic to structured text? 2nd Question: If I read a project from a PLC why is it always ladder logic? Is there any way to read out structured text?
  4. CX-Programmer Comment Language Translation

    I am currently trying to modify preliminary code that was sent to me for a system I am making. The physical system has been modified so the code will need to follow suit. It is programmed using a CJ1M CPU13 Omron PLC using CX programmer (Old PLC I know). When I downloaded the code from the PLC, I realized that the previous programmer was of a french background so all the comments and symbols in the code is in french. This creates a problem for me because it is more difficult to understand what is going on in the program he/she had written. My question is, is there a way to export only the comments and symbol names as a text file so I can run it through a translator to get a better idea what is being explained on the ladder rungs. I realize it wont be 100% accurate but it would be better than what I have now. Any ideas?I are also trying to figure out a way to use the Omron technology to measure the life of a catalytic converter during operation. We want to characterize the degradation of performance so we know when the catalytic element needs to be swapped out for a new one or cleaned. If anyone knows of such a sensor, I would be pleased to know.

  6. I am trying to export the Modbus points lists from a DAServer in Archestra SMC but I am getting an error message shown in the attached image. All options are greyed out and I cannot export the points list from the PLC node. I know there are points configured on the PLC node because data is updating the the InTouch application. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated!

  8. 800 Panelview

    I wold like to create an alarm history list that can be scrolled through from most resent to 1st. Is this possible with the Panelview 800 7"? We were able to create a page but it holds only 25 alarms and you can't scroll back.
  9. Hello all, I am new to this forum and it happens to ask a question here. Any advice would be much appreciated! I have created alarm display for PVP 6 600 using FTV Studio ME 8.00 (CPR 9 SR 7). The problem is the alarm time stamp was not fit with the column width. I was unable to find way to adjust the column width of the alarm list object. I am using Courier font, size 10, 4 lines per alarm. The max no of characters in alarm message is 33 characters including spaces.  Aung
  10. I hope I am posting this in the right location, I did not see any sub forums specific to Rockwell or Factorytalk. We are finally converting from XP to Windows 7! WOO-Hoo! It has gone fairly well but I see one issue that has me concerned and I would like to resolve it now; my application converted fine except my translations did not come across. We have two base applications we build off of that correspond to the type of machine they are used for; both support multiple languages which are selectable with an on screen VBA based button that does a bit and language change in the background. One application supports English and Russian while the other is English and Spanish. I have tried doing the import on Windows 7 in both languages related to the application I am working with and the alternate language (in this case it is Russian) never comes across. I have tried both the direct copy and .apa methods with the conversion and the results are the same. Is there a step I am missing during the conversion process or will I have to export my languages from 6.0 and import them to 8.0 separately after conversion? I am not thrilled about this process as it never seems to keep the proper layout of the text when imported. I assume the issue is the conversion process as I can load the .apa on a fresh XP build and the languages are both present.
  11. Hi Guys,        In my project i am in need of switching language from English to Spanish and vice versa.For all displays,i switched to the needed language according to the working operator.        In alarm history message,If i am in English language mode means,alarm messages also in English and same for Spanish.

Please find the attachment, NOTE:Example attachment only.  My question is,how can i get the occurred messages in current language? Help me to sort this. Thanks in advance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    
  12. I can send out an emails when certain conditions have been met, this all work great, is there a way to send out to more then 1 email address? Micrologix 1100, rslogix500 I can't figure out how to send email to more then 1 recipient. Also why would this not be working? Emails work just fine but if I send to (Phone number the phone will never get the message. (It's a working phone as it is mine) Thanks
  13. Hi all, I have a new problem. I have to translate NT631C application from Dutch to English(or Serbian). I uploaded *.mmi language file with translation utility and start translation but now I want to "merge" new mmi file with onw file(application) to see how new language looks like before downloading it to the touch terminal. Is this possible or I have to download new mmi to touch and then upload whole application again? P.S. Touch is on site 100km from my office.
  14. I am aware that I can use a word lamp, set its display address to $SW10, and then on the HMI terminal screen, the image displayed will change depending on the language chosen. BUT when I change the language switch inside CXDesigner, the image shown in the designer area does not change. This is annoying because it means I have to go into "offline test" to check that my translation images (fancy text shown as a bitmap) are correct. Is it possible to make CXDesigner change the image shown, in the designer area, according to the language switch?
  15. I have found the switch (in the label tab of an objects properties) that allows you to store 2 or more different languages within the label of a button. Now I want another button, within the HMI, to set this switch to a particular language. How do I do this?
