  1. 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.
  2. Logicmaster 90 Software Needed

    I need the LM90.exe software to pull the program off of an old 90-30 PLC.  Proficy ME will not communicate and I know I've run into this before where the earliest 90-30's will not work with Proficy and I have had to use LM90.  I used to have a copy and don't know what I did with it.  I'm in communication with GE Automation, but it does not look promising.  I just need to get the ladder so I can minimize the engineering time to migrate to a new PLC.
  3. IC220PNS001

    Hello, I currently have two IC220PNS001 connected to IC695PNC001. The PLC being used is IC695CPE330. Out of the two PNS001, one of them has a solid SF Red light on which means bus error according to the Status Parameter IO. I disconnect every single IC220 card connected and downloaded the whole configuration but I still have a Bus error.  PS: I have also tried to switch the PNS001 with the brand new out of the box and I still have the same error. In the manual, it says Profinet Diagnostic available, can somebody please guide me as to where I can find the Profinet Diagnostic, also is there any manual for PNS001 which explains the in-depth debugging process for this PROFINET Controller.  
  4. Software for GE 90-30

    Hello all, I am an electrical engineering student and I am looking for some software to program some GE 90-30s I've acquired. I received the PLCs from a mentor at my internship after the summer was over. I have somewhere between 7-8 of them with a bunch of cards and other accessories. I was hoping to start doing some projects on my own to study them, but unfortunately, I don't have any software to program them.   I have some files for Logicmaster from the company directory that I was given permission to copy, but it won't run in any compatibility mode.   Does anybody know where I could find another copy of the software or a download for something like versapro or proficy machine edition for a student? Even if I have to pay a discounted price, I would, I just want to learn programming basics.    
  5. Series 90-30 CPU311T With Proficy ME

    We have an old press using a Series 90-30 with a 311 CPU 5 Slot Rack.  I am trying to pull the program off so we can convert it to a new CompactLogix.  I am using Proficy ME v6.0.  I have the proper RS232-485 cable and a built in serial port on my XP laptop but cannot get it to connect.  I know that Logicmaster projects cannot be opened by Proficy ME and being such an old 90-30 it probably was programmed using Logicmaster.  Would being programmed by Logicmaster prevent me from even being able to communicate via serial connection?

  7. Hello  i have a versamax plc icu200udr064 which is connected to a modbus rtu network.  i want to send some coils states on the modbus network with a specific data address, so can this be done by proficy machine and if yes can you help with that? thank you

  10. GE Fanuc 90-30 problem

    Hello, I am Siemens programists newbie to GE-Fanuc.   1) Program was created in LM90-30 - i can not work with this software (Versapro only) 2) I have no valid backup in Versapro 2.04 and LM90-30, 3) After load hardware, logic, variables to Versapro 2.04 - Logic not Equal,  4) There is no _Main.dec available, 5) There is one empty subroutine in IL after upload causing: "IL Temporary variable range not defined". Warn: "Block contains empty data lists." 6) After trying to check_all - stil p.5,   I could monitor program with migrated version from LM90-30. After making changes (just store logic), program still looks like before changes (despite logic equal in right corner). There is something weird becouse whole the rung (network) logic conditions are ok (1) but the coil is grayed - working like there is program before loading.   At the end of storing versapro generates an error. Whole program in PLC was made in LM90-30.   I am looking for solution. Best regards. Realy appreciate for your help / ideas.      
  11. LM90 to Proficy Upgrade

    This is a preliminary post to see if anyone can point me towards information on upgrading from LM90 to Proficy ME. We have a system that I was involved with 15 years ago and a new company that owns this rig is looking to upgrade from LM90 to PME and change out all of the Field Control Cards and update to VersaMax...... Was going to keep the Genius Comm until I heard that's on it's way out by the end of 2017 as well. Now looking to upgrade to Profinet. Any information that you want to throw at me would be appreciated. Cheers
  12. PLC Software Conversion

    Hi ALL, How do I convert a LM 90 30 (DOS) to a Proficy Machine Edition 8.5 software? Thanks Chris
  13. I have had a GE 90-30 CPU331 in my house for 17 years with no trouble at all. I have a problem that I have never seen before. I was editing the program using LM90. I don't know what I could have done in the program to disable an output. Just 1. All the rest of the points in that group on that card still work. I swapped cards with no difference. All of the elements of the rung are true (highlighted). The output is not on or highlighted. The nickname over the output has ONE letter highlighted. The bit in the reference is "0" and is highlighted or "grayed out" (the cursor is not on it). I searched for coil conflicts. I am using this output contact lots of places but only one output. The logic is working correctly when I use another output or %M. This is an isolated output which needs to be in this group (moving it would be awkward). What does a "grayed out" reference bit mean?
  14. PME 8.0

    Is Proficy Machince Edition Version 8.0 compatible with PME 8.5?
