  1. Hello fellas. I am having trouble with understanding the communication between my AB PLC and my Balluff BNI0085, which is connected through an IFM AL1120 IO-link deivce. I am currently running a setup with an AB PLC (L18ER) that is connected to a local network through a network switch. I have connected my IFM AL1120 to this switch, and the IP configuration for both devices have been completed. The communications are made by using two add-on instructions, supplied by Rockwell: The BMC_AOI_PROC_BNI0085 instruction (For the Balluff smartlight), and the Generic_4PORT_IOL (For the IFM IO-link). I have additionally been supplied an ACD-file by my ex-coworker, containing a program that administrates the communication between the two add-on instructions. I have attached the routine from this as a PDF. What works: I can go online with my PLC, and by using the parameter "BNI0085_Mapped_Data.O" I can control the smartlight. I can change the settings for light-mode (Segment, Level, Runlight, Flexible), and the different parameters for each mode. What's the problem: When I change the Mapped_data.O to run in level-mode, I can adjust the light to show the level desired. When I try to adjust the level above halfway, the light switches off, and can't seem to be steady lit (Light turns on/off, random dimming). I speculate this might be due to the small power supply for the IO-link device, and the setting for brightness is not included in the AOI for the smartlight.  I therefore tried to adjust the brightness by connecting through the LR-device software from IFM(The same used to configure the IO-link). I added the IODD (IO-link device description, "Balluff-BNI_IOL-802-102-Z037-20190215-IODD1.1.xml") for the smartlight, and connected the device, which is discovered in the device list once the IO-link IP has been entered. I can read the values from both the IO-link and the BNI0085 devices, and I can write parameter settings to the IO-link device. Whenever I try to edit any parameter for the smartlight, I get the error attached. I am currently trying to follow the SmartLight userguide for the Balluff, as it describes the brightness setting as being in the ISDU index 51hex, but I don't know how this pertains to the AOI.   I am in over my head with this issue, and I don't know what information is needed or what is unnecessary. I've tried to include all that I think is relevant, I'll gladly provide what might be missing.  Any help is greatly appreciated, cheers :)   Balluff_smartlight_com_MainRoutine.pdf
  2. Hi all:   Hope somebody will help me with the below error encounter on the NA. I mapped a external device (NJ PLC) variable (which is a structure) to a NA Global variable and the structure is automatically created in the NA data type as expected. I then create a new NA global variable and defined its data type as the auto created structure. However i observe the created new NA global variable is highlighted with an error "a data type cannot be used by both mapped and unmapped variable ....." ( pls refer to the attached screen).  I have found and view on the Youtube this video :"Introduction To The NA DataTypes" (link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZxWnVn1CSY). that clearly show the "imported" structure can be used for unmapped NA global variable even there is some variable already mapped to external device variable (starting from the 3:50minutes mark of the video). In my NA program i would need to create such unmapped variable for my logic use. Also i observe that i was unable to delete the auto created structure from the NA Data Types even after i deleted all variables that are defined with that specific structure. How can i delete such auto created structure in case i want to clear off some of those unused data types. I am using Sysmac Studio version 1.30.0.17. The HMI Device created is the NA5-9W00 (version 1.11)          
  3. Hi, I am using IQ-R Series "R16ENCPU" With Inbuild CC-LINK IE FIELD "RJ71EN71" and attached CC-LINK "RJ61BT11". Problem is, Even though my remote IO cards are in Online connected with masters, I cannot able to On/OFF Remote Device station IOs in CC-Link IE FIELD network. But CC-Link Normal is working fine. Refresh settings and Network Config Settings are done, Below attached the pics for reference. I cannot able to find the problem, Can anyone help me in this.  
  4. Hi all. This is hopefully an easy fix. I have words and bit values in a recipe that I am trying to show in a logging file. I can get numerical values to show but I can't get the word devices from the recipe to show up on the logging file. Eg my devices from recipe set as a string starting with device gd60120 and in the logging file I want gd60120 to show the word, they are both set as unicode.

  7. Unrecognized Device

    Hey all - I am stumped and looking for some assistance. I have a project in studio 5000, v.32 where I have some ABB drives that are not recognized. I've installed the EDS files, exact same one my co-worker besides me did, and mine will not go recognized and it is driving me crazy! I've done it while online with the PLC and offline, still to no avail. I've also installed the EDS files by going through Tools>EDS Hardware Installation and by right-clicking on the ABB drive in the controller organization tree and registering EDS file. Thanks for any assistance, -k
  8. Device point error between Parameter and PLC

    Hello all, I am a beginner with PLCs programming. I have an issue on GX Developer programming software from Melsoft trying to program my Mitsubishi Q-series PLC. CPU is Q03UDCPU. When the program is written and I try to upload it to the PLC, with the write to PLC window, I check -Program -- MAIN and -Prameter -- PLC/Network/Remote, click EXECUTE and a message appears : "Device point that is set in parameter is not match the device point in PLC". I can't fix it. In Parameter - PLC Parameter - Q parameter setting (window) - I/O assignment tab : I have (see image). Whe I use CHECK button it says there is no error. The X41 input device is plugged on slot 1/00. I am making this folowing the instructions a PDF I found on the Mitsubishi electric's wesite : Q-series basic course (for GX Developer). Thanks for the help, A. S.
  9. Hey everyone! New member here, and this site has always been a big help!  I try to help other folks too, but a lot of guys are super quick on here.   I've got a problem using some obscure components. I inherited a sensor network at work that uses Panasonic S-Link and I need to read them from a Q-Series. Panasonic makes a module that slots into the Q Series called an SL-VMEL-Q that I have.   My question is:  Did I do everything correctly on my Mitsubishi side? I put it into the parameters as an intelligent module with 64 points and I put the correct address in for the start I/O. Is that all I have to do?  This is the first time I used a module that wasn't on the drop down list when you add one in GX Works 2.   I can read and write to the buffer memory, but I can't get the unit to send to or receive from the sensors. I think the problem is that there is no end unit on the S-Link line (I don't know if it's just a terminating resistor or what), but it previously worked without one, so I can't be certain.
  10. GX Works 2

    Hello everyone! Can anyone suggest to take all the Input and Output (digital) status at a time in a single file for backup in gx works2 in FX2N PLC. I need to confirm that all required IO are in perfect condition before start operating the machine. Also I plan to design a troubleshooter to find problem.

  15. Rotary input device

    I am looking for some sort of rotary input device which could be used for fine adjustment. Ideally it would have to two output pins, if turned clockwise it would send pulses on one of the pins and when turned counterclockwise it would sent pulses on the other pin. These could be connected to two inputs on PLC and a value in a given variable could be incremented and decremented depending on the direction of rotation. Almost like using potentiometer with analog signal. I guess if I can not find anything I could use incremental encoder and look at the phase of the output to decide which way it is being turned but hopefully simpler and maybe more cost effective solution is out there? Thanks.
  16. I am trying to find a way to do a "batch monitor of Global Labels" in Mitsubishi GX Works2 Software. I can monitor Device/Buffer Memory Batch but can't find a way to monitor all Global Label's status online? Can anybody help me on this?
