  3. Recipe Load Record using script

    Hi guys, I have been baffling with this for a while now, it there a way on GT Designer 3 to execute the "Load Record" FFCH using a script? I would like to load the recipes onto a PLC without having to press any keys on the GOT. Simply scan a value using an external scanner, the scanned value updates the control target record name. A simple script that has a trigger coming from the PLC would execute the "Load Record - FFCC" Thanks in advance.
  4. Hi, I've got a very old version of Wonderware, version 9.5, which isn't going to be upgraded anytime soon. I would like to configure a button to perform 2 tasks under "Touch Pushbuttons", ideally "Action" and "Show Window". I am unable to enable both at the same time, so I've been trying to write a script that would perform both functions, but so far unsuccessfully. Is this something that can be done, or is there another way to get around this problem? I would like the button to toggle a bit and to open another window with more controls.   thanks
  5. Hi All, Just wondering if anyone here has any experience with automatically loading different programs to compactlogix. I am open to any suggestions. So far we have been putting sd card slots on the main panels since the extender cables are limited in length so the customer needed to swap sd cards on a tooling plate change out before powering up. One of our customers now would like to change the tooling plate and have the plc automatically load the proper program for it. We don't want to have multiple subroutines because sooner or later the plc memory will run out. We also have put smaller plc's on the tooling plates themselves to hold the specific programming for the tooling plate and handshake with main frame but this particular customer does not want this. I would like to know if anyone has done anything with wifi sd cards in CompactLogix or loading the program automatically from a pc to sd card and then switching the sd card to the plc via some kind of sd card switch before powering back up. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.  
  6. Hello,  I want to compare pulsed coming from flow meter with a constant value. And make a bit to high level when my set pulses are equal to present value in counter. I am using 1734 Vhsc24 module for this. If any body have sample program kindly attach it. 
  7. Hello All,  Am a bit new to practical PLC applications. I was trying to configure a Phoenix Contact I/O module (1452916) on a MicroLogix 1100 PLC but it kept faulting out with the fault light RED. It would say "Major Error Halt S:1/13". The error description says I/O mismatch. The error code is 187h (see attachment). The Phoenix module has a cable with 19 pin positions for the 8 input. I connected the pin 17 and 18 to 24 volts and  0 volts respectively. Then because I was using input 5 I connected the pink wire to PLC input (I/1) 24volts and the White/Yellow wire to the PLC common.  On the I/O configuration on RSLogix 500, I used "Other" ( See attachment) but did not know the vendor details. Could anyone help me with the steps on how to communicate with the module? I have also attached the PLC program I was running. Thanks        
  8. Hello, I have been so many days trying to comunicate the multiway software trought a serial usb converter with the SCU31 device, using a omron function block to read a holding register, but I can't achieved it. Now Im receiving some frames on multiway, but there is always some errors. I was wondering if somebody in here that have worked previously with modbus and omron can be able to help me in how to configure everything corectly to be able to read the value from multiway, on the plc, and where is this value saved.  I'll upload some captures to show what I have done till now.    

    Hello ,  I dont have experience with Mitsubishi PLC.  I want to do a modification on the ethernet configuration but i dont have the source code .  According the information that i read we can use GX IEC developer or GX developer but my question are :  Can i upload and download the program with GX developer?  Even if was previous developed with GX IEC Developer i will not do any change on the code only on ethernet configurations , add a MC communication. I have another concern about the profibus module. For the profibus is necessary another program right ? But if i don't want do any modification on the profibus is dont need it, right?  My experience on Siemens when is necessary do a modification on the hardware configuration. I should have all the hadware configuration " right"  it means if i have profibus i should have the right GSD to allow do modification on the configuration .  But on Mitsubish i can´t understand that well .

  10. BECKHOFF CX-9020

    Hello PLC experts, I am master student currently writing thesis. For this, I have a initial task of making some changes to PLC program (Just started getting to know about PLCs- complete beginner). I have a BECKHOFF cx 9020 PLC connected to my notebook using ethernet. I am using TWINCAT 3.1 (VS) as IDE. Firstly, I cannot find my PLC IP address connected to my notebook . I added the route in the Twincat and it shows the PLC is connected. When, I am trying to run a program (activate boot project), I am unable to login to the PLC. It gives an error "login failed for application port 851". What I undertood from BECKHOFF scripts,  there is something wrong with the ADS ams net ID which I am trying to figure it out. I appreciate all the help. Thank you.
  11. Hello all. I have been working with an SLC 5/04 system, which houses various Digital and Analog INs and OUTs, up to Slot 29. I am currently mainly working with Slot 25, an Analog Input: 1746-NI16I. This is a system which has already been set up and has been running for the best part of 8-10 years. This particular card has had some spare inputs, one of which I am trying to connect to. In the Advanced Configuration, only a few Channels are actually "Enabled", and each channel is pretty much slightly different from another in terms of Input Type, Filter Frequency and Data Format. I am trying to set up Input 14, which is Channel 15, to "Enable" it, 4-20mA Input Type, Filter Frequency of 6 Hz and Data Format of either Raw/Proportional or Engineering Units. Now, after I have made my choices, I click apply, and then OK. I am then confronted by a pop-up which states: "Configuration Rung and Data Integer Data File Number: 25 Integer Data Element: 100 Rung to be inserted: XIC S2:1/15 COP #N25:100 #O0:25.0 24 At Program File Number: 4 82" I have the options of OK or Cancel. If I click OK, I now have LAD 4, Rung 82 Highlighted. This First Scan Bit and COP function were already here, but does that mean I have now altered what is being written to "#O:25.0"? I now Download the Changes. However, after all this, I am not getting any Analog input reading coming in from the Live PLC. What is this COP function? What does it do? How do I properly set up this Analog Card?   Thanks for your time, -Jame

  13. load cell SP4M-7Kg

    Hello guys, I have a system of 3 load cells (SP4M-7Kg) attached  to a Micrologix 1500 analog inputs. in the same PLC i have 3 coils for a vibrator, each vibrator is working with signal generators. and the load cells with an external 24vdc Power Supply. i see my load cells readings fluctuating too much even with the vibrator not working. if it is set lets say 70 Grams it is jumping from 68.4 to 74.8 going up an down never never stabilizes in one number, so i suspect am getting noise somewhere put a 100uF capacitor PLC inputs for the load cells but weight just increases more and more. How can realize where is the noise comming? what can i use as a filter? how can i improve this system? should i changed it to digital?   any help welcome! thanks.  questions?    
  14. 1746-NO8V configuration

    Looking for a little help.  Replaced a 1746-NO8V analog card that hadn't been working for years and the new card is giving a Configuration Error (Module LED flashes twice, all 8 outputs are flashing 12 times).  I have 2 other of the same cards in the same rack that have been working for a very long time and still working that seem to be configured the same way.  Is there any way to know what is wrong with my configuration.  or maybe my new card is just bad???  I have not yet swapped one of my working cards with the new card, have considered but really think I'm missing something.

  16. Logix 5000, Array filling

    Hi there! I have a question with AB PLC. My problem:  I have some raw data...distance for example.When the machine starts,the sensor begins to send the information with the distance values. When data is received it is moved into an array. After the first 5 values the program calculates an average and the result is moved into another array.Currently after receiving the fifth value,thus filling the first array,making the calculation and sending the average to the other array,the program empties the entire first array instead of just always discarding the oldest value of the five,and recalculating the average with the newly arrived value every time. I tried to made this with ladder diagram using an an fifo load and unload but isnt working. Please help me if anybody can. Thank You.
  17. I need solution for master & slave configuration between 2 PLC Twido TWDLCAE40DRF. My final project is about a system for filling drink on a cup and do the packaging. the component of the project is the filling system (dropping cup, filling water, pressing the seal) and the packing (packing into a box and sealing the box).

I've read the manual book but it's hard to understand the instruction. if anyone can give a simplify explaination to me please reply this post or you can reach me at mail:  
  18. I am currently using a Kinetex 5500 Servo Drive with a VPL Motor and its has vertical load attached to it. My problem is even after setting my Brake Enagaged time to 0.01s it drops like a dime. I had made sure that I kept my Servo STO enable for 5 second before MSO is shutoff and MSF is engaged. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong? Attached is an action parameter settings for brake control.
  19. Hi All,  I was wondering if any of you guys could help me about improving my load sharing application. At the moment it's very unstable and i can't see what i am doing wrong! Thanks.  Details: I am trying to run a industrial chain conveyor using Torque control by Real sensorless vector control function of A700 Mitsubishi VFD. I have been following "Technical Note" which is provided by mitsubishi (see attached PDF).  As described on technical note, i am trying to control 5 motors ( 1 X 2.2kW, 4 X 1.1kW) to share the load on this chain conveyor. Torque command (SV) and Motor Torque (PV) read from Master VFD and PID output (MV) of Q03UDE transferred to Slave VFDs over CC-link. i would appreciate any information and help you can provide, Many Thanks.  Application_Technical_Note_Load_Sharing.pdf

    Hi ALL, Am trying to configure a PCM 301 (LM 90 30 Communication Co Processor Module) What software do I use,is it TERMF or PCOP? And where can I buy this software Thanks
  22. I am experiencing a serious problem. Everything went fine in my project for month. Yesterday when I "Transfer to Controller" (like I use to do several time a day) I got this Message : "Build is not complete. Process was aborted". So I build again, I Rebuild controler, I restart SysmacStudio, restart the computer, reset the hardware on the project ... nothing worked. Always the same message. So I opened a previous version of my code. Since it was allready built when saved, I had no problem transfering it in the controler. However, the moment I change a line (have to rebuild) on this backed up version... same problem appear. I finally got to the "output windows" (Alt+3) where I saw ALL build are failed. I've contacted my Omron representative and he is trying to help but he seem as lost as I am. Please help if you can, I am using Sysmac Studio 1.13 on Windows 10. I also have a HMI wired to the project and everything work fine with it.  
  23. I am having trouble loading the configuration into a Micro984-230. I lost an old M84-002 PLC. I have the program. I purchased a Micro994-230 replacement. I lost my cable, so I made a new one. The only software that I have still running is Updoc 4.30b. I tested out my cable and Updoc by connecting to a 984-381. Everything worked fine online and offline. The error I get during the configuration loading is communication error 13. I have no idea what that is. Perhaps I can't do configuration loading with Updoc. I have Modsoft Lite  working but I do not think that it works with this controller. It is for MIcro and Compact controllers. I may have modsoft and taylor kicking around but I do not know if they are installable or not. I hope I can find out if my config is improper, I have used the wrong controller setup file (used Micro984), or where iI can have the config loaded for me? I also do not know if this used controller is functioning correctly.
  24. CPM1A-AD041 configuration

    hello guys .. am the new guy in this forum I am having a problem with CPM1A-AD041  configuration. Please suggest what type of operands (Data Type, Address) should be defined for the selected operand (see attachment drawing). This example is taken from the module's configuration manual for CP1H CPU Unit (WA450-E1-06). CPM1A-AD041 works with CP1H-XA40DR-A. thanks in advanced :)
  25. Hi, Good day to all,   I got a situation regarding the redundancy configuration. Please refer to the image attached (Page 26, Enhanced Redundancy User Manual). Notice the 1756 ControlLogix I/O inside the green box! The chassis hasn't got a CPU but only has an Ethernet IP module for the entire chassis. Does anyone know how to add and configure this chassis to the I/O configuration tree of RSLogix5K (Logix Designer 5k)? On my configuration, I've also inserted 2 MVI56E-MNETC Modbus TCP/IP Module in addition to the standard I/O Modules. Is my configuration possible? I appreciate any help I could get, thank you very much!   Sincerely, Andrei O. Karunungan
