  1. I have a Siemens HMI 6AV2 124-0MC01-0AX0 in my machine. I want to clone the display on the HMI to PC/Laptop. My question is: 1. What software that I need for this task? 2. What kind of interface that I need between the HMI and PC/Laptop (for example ethernet cable, etc)? 3. Do I need to communicate with PLC connected with HMI or can I just connect with the HMI? Thanks in advance for the answer.
  2. 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.
  3. S7 200 SEG INSTRUCTION

    Hello guys. We are trying to replace a S7 200 PLC at our station with S7 1200.  We are reading the program on the S7 200 and recreating the same on the S7 1200. However, we have encountered the SEG  instruction used several times in the S7 200 (microwin) program. And the SEG instruction is not available in TIA Portal (we are using TIA 11) for the S7 1200. We have tried to read the s7 200 system manual but the explanation of the instruction is not sufficient to help recreate it. Could anyone know how we can create our own equivalent of the SEG instruction? If anyone has the SEG instruction already created as a program, it would be very helpful. Thank you.  
  4. Hi all  I need help with communication between Mitsubishi L06CPU-P with Siemens S7-1500 by Modbus TCP. It's necessary to send data from L06CPU to S7-1500, but I don't know anything about mitsubishi and gx works2.  Picked up some pics how I did it, but I didn't verified how it works. Can anybody help me with this? https://ibb.co/8KDmg5x https://ibb.co/Jm8shCx   edited: I also found LQnUDEModbusTCP_GW2_with_FC_V120 library, but how it works I dont know
  5. Create TCP/UDP Socket

    I'm trying to send an int over TCP using a MSG Socket,  Compactlogix ==> Arduino Ethernet Shield I have set up TCP communication between two Arduino Uno's using Ethernet shield. I've set up the one as a server, the other as a client. server IP: 192.168.1.21 port 23. If the client is connected it reads incoming data as a byte or an array of bytes. The data between the two has been verified to work. I'm now trying to transition the communications between a compact logix-L32E. I'm looking to send a byte (or int being as there's no byte data type) from the Compactlogix to the Arduino using TCP. To my understanding I need to use a socket create, open, read/write, close. The manual to do this is vague as a step by step procedure. Does anyone have an example code for socket programming? I can open rs500, rs5000, and studio 5000 programs. If I can open a file to use as a reference I can translate it on my own. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. 
  6. I am pretty new to the SCADA world. I wanted to know what are the advantages of using a paid proprietary SCADA software such as WinCC, Wonderware, cimplicity over free software such as OpenSCADA, OpenAPI, IndigoSCADA and so on. I have read, there are more layers of security in the paid one. What does that mean? What are the other main differences between the paid and free ones out there in the market?
  7. CJ1W-EIP21 To CJ2M-CPU33 Setup

    Hi All,     I am working on a system that uses multiple Ethernet IP devices to control Pneumatic valves and D I/O. We have integrated several (smaller systems) with success. However, these systems are using a large amount of network words. One system uses 210 Byte Produce and 210 Bytes Consume. My Current count of these systems on one machine is Six masters. I need a total of 2,520 Bytes plus some for other devices in my network configurator.  My controls vendor told me I could expand the network by adding a CJ1W-EIP21 Card to help run these masters. After about 24 Hours of reading the Manual w465 I still dont quite understand how I am supposed to run these valves with this card or with Tag Data Links. Currently I have a network config. with all my masters networked to a CJ1w-EIP21 Card and TagData Links that were setup through the Tag Data Link Wizard via Network Config. I need help setting up variables in the CJ2M_CPU33 using tag link data that will allow me to output data to these masters. All assistance and Information is much appreciated.    Nate
  8. I have a purchased Machine that came with a Siemens LOGO 8.FSR PLC (Smart Relay). Generally we use Allen Bradley or Mitsubishi. Anyway, we need to communicate data between the LOGO and an Allen Bradley Compact Logix.  I do not desire to add an additional network to the AB but as best i can tell the LOGO is exclusively Modbus TCP/IP. Has anyone come across a similar situation?  I look online and did find an  Anybus module that claims to be able to link them together.  Looking for anyone who has faced this challenge and succeeded, or failed.   Thanks
  9. Good day all, I'm going to get a new Siemens PLC (model haven't decide) for a project using OPCUA server. I'm curious to know whether I made the right choice or not? Cause I planning to use that PLC to process some data that it got from OPCUA server. Can I know whether I can directly use Ethernet connection to take the data from server directly and fed it into my Siemens PLC? (I probably won't use the DI of the PLC for input data)
  10. Hi, Is it possible to have two hardware configurations which can be switched through HMI. currently i have two hardware configurations and the project remains same. So without connecting with Simatic Manager i want to switch the hardware configuration.

  16. Siemens Field PG M3 - PLC Programming Rugged Laptop for Sale   Condition is Used   This is a Siemens Field PG for PLC Programming.   Purchased several years ago as part of an auction lot and has sat in my workshop since, I don't do much Siemens so this is up for sale - This is what I know about it :-   The machine has Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit installed (Machine has Windows 7 Ultimate on the base but been upgraded at some point) 8GB ram installed It has a windows XP VM installed which runs the Siemens Programming software (Virtual Box) There is a folder on the desktop containing the original installation files, so would be easy to return back to the host machine if required. All software appears to be licensed (see pics)    Has Step 7 and Step 5 installed   Negatives - Missing the back flap & Battery not being recognised thus not taking on charge (I think this is a just BIOS update needed but not looked into it too much)   In very good overall condition, a few light marks but that's about it, still looks very good.   Comes with the original branded rucksack    This was a really expensive bit of kit in its day and still stands up as an excellent PLC programming machine   Open to sensible offers - I am located in the UK so worldwide postage will have to be calculated seperately   I have powered it up and it works well with no issues found, the PLC software all seems to work and appears fully licensed but as I am not the original owner and don't know the provenance of the machine or licenses this machine is sold with no returns or warranty provided.
  17. Hey all - I am working on a car wash system design that will utilize the Nayax payment system. Has anyone utilized them? How do I incorporate the device with PLC to automate the system. After payment is approved how can I send out that signal from them, all via ethernet on a managed switch w/ wifi for exterior comms for the Nayax.
  18. Omron CJ1M CPU11 - ProfiNet - Siemens

    Hello guys, newbie here. Wait, where are you all going...? Don't go! I've got *some* experience. And a job on my hands. I've got an Omron CJ1M with a CPU11. Attached, is a PNT21 Profinet IOController. At the other end, it is going to be a Siemens SIMATIC ET 200AL, PROFINET interface module IM 157-1 PN with a couple of digital input and output modules attached. The hardware isn't here yet, otherwise I'd just jump straight into trouble. Probably. I've got it mostly setup in ConfiguratorFDT with the GSD files from Siemens. The question: How do I map the Symbols to the digital IO at the other end of the profinet? Can I just set the symbol address to the IO areas that ConfiguratorFDT show me, ie, 3300 for the inputs, etc? Thanks!
  19. i am trying to communication my weintek HMI with Siemens Energy Meter PAC3200. I am using MODBUS TCP/IP Protocol but i am unable to read the data register of my energy meter. Somehow i got to read the 32bit data register but still unable to read the 64bit data register of my total KWHr Energy consumption. I have also attached the manual of my energy meter. Please guide how to read all the data registers of that energy meter. Please see the page 40 onwards for reference. The manual the about 7MB so i cannot attach the file. https://support.industry.siemens.com/cs/attachments/26504150/A5E01168664B-04_EN-US_122016_201612221316360495.pdf

Any help, sample will be appreciated.   Kind Regards Morne
  21. Axis Attribute Error

    Hello All, First time working with PLC. Get the hang of it from stuff I researched. Having an issue with an axis setup for a servo motor.  When I try to do an auto tune it gives me an error that axis is not configured.  Source: Config Fault    Condition: MotorDeviceCode- INvalid attribute      ACtion: Immediate Stop Fault Entry: Type 8, code 9 subcode: 1314 stopaction: 4 Statechange: 3   I was wondering what am I doing wrong? Any leads or source information I can use to solve this. 
  22. Siemens Simatic S7-1200 component selection

    Hi,  I am designing measurement devices and i intend to use Simatic S7-1200 as PLC for my new device. The problem is, my background is nothing close the electric and I am having quite a lot troubles when it comes to select components, I do not know how can I select components that are compatible with the PLC i am going to use.  Pressure sensor, humidity sensor shall be selected and which parameters I should be careful about? I read somewhere 24VDC supply voltage is needed. Is it needed even the device has digital output or is it for analog output only? How do I make sure about the communication interface? For some devices it says I2C, is that compatible with S7-1200? or do i need a special communication module for each component? Then it will be super expensive.  I would appreciate any answer. 
  23. Signal Tower Error Code(s)

    Hi, got a mental block lol.  Got a machine we are modifying, currently got most of the code in place. Working on a fault routine now. This machine doesn't have an HMI or wide array of PL. Nothing major just a simple vision system check. Currently have 6 faults that will stop the cycle running. I'm wanting to have the beacon light (Red light) blink for the cause of the fault. For example: Scenario 1- Fault stop for bottle check NG:  (two) .5 sec blinks -  2 sec red light off -  (two) .5 sec blinks ..... repeat  Scenario 2- Fault stop for bottle check NG and reject sensor blocked:  (two) .5 sec blinks -2 sec red light off - (three) .5 sec blinks - 2 sec red light off....... repeat I have the code a few different ways but it looks "dirty". Any suggestions? Thanks in advance

  25. Hello, I need to make communication NB TW01B by Omron with Siemens's S7 1200 PLC using MODBUS TCP. I did everything like in this manual: https://www.myomron.com/index.php?action=kb&article=1566 I can read and write single bits from and to DB but I have problem with representation of float variable. In hmi_variable.png you can see my DB. Every BOOL variable communicate just fine the real ones doesnt. In NB - variables.png you can see how i added them into NB panel variable table. Settings.png shows settings of my INPUT number element on the frame( screen in NB). When I write on panel for example number 10.0 then from the panel view it looks properly but in PLC you can see value like in the 10.0.png. What am I doing wrong? Any suggest? hmi_variable.png NB - variables.png Settings.png 10.0.png
