Limit switch configuration in beckhoff IPC
genn posted a topic in Other PLCsHi, In our machine, we want the homing of linear axis to be - moving to reverse limit. In order to achieve that we connected positive limit to Enable_positive input, negative limit to Enable_negative input of MC_Power function block. We used MC_Home function block and assigned the negative limit to bCalibrationCam of home FB. Things were working correctly. But one thing we noticed is if the axis is in synchronous operation mode(axis following another master axis), even the limit is engaged axis is not stopping. During discrete movement this was stopping. Is there any other way to configure limit switch in twincat3.
PLC Rookie2021 posted a topic in MitsubishiI am newer to GT designer. Ive used it a couple times years ago but I cannot figure out how to create a 3 position switch and cant really find any info on it? Is there a special way to set a switch up so that eveytime the operator hits it it changes the state or picture of the switch from left to up then to right and back? im sure its probably just something that im not seeing in the properties menu but any input would be greatly appreciated.
GT Designer exponential increment switch
sathu posted a topic in MitsubishiHi Experts, I would like to know is there any possibility to make a switch that can make exponential increment to a data. i know how to make a switch to increment data in fixed intervals with a switch but im trying to make a switch when you press it continuesly it should increase the gains rapidly over time. is this possible and if yes can someone explain me how? im attaching a sample image how i want to make two buttons to increase and decrease a data. thank you in advance guys. kind regards, sathu.
Multiple Machine Integration
Cegge posted a topic in Computer Help and NetworkingOk guys, this is more a networking question involving a Stratix 5700 managed switch and 5 machines. The five machines all have set IP addresses from the OEM that cannot be changed. The manufacturer has them set in the program to maintain that IP ,so if it sees the IP change it will change it back. With that being said all Five machines have the exact same IP configuration and I cannot change it without contacting the manufacturer and getting them to change it or sell me the program so i can change it. both options will costs entirely too much in my opinion. With that being said my only goal is to read tags from the PLC on each machine. Is there anyway to set each port on that Stratix switch where i can communicate with each machine individually without causing them to have IP address conflicts with the other machines that have the same IP address. I hope I explained my question well enough. Thank you in advance for any help on this issue.
Switch LAMP latch
MarinusS posted a topic in MitsubishiHello I'm new with GT Designer 3, I'm writing code for a GOT2107 HMI. I have a few buttons that when you press it, the LED on the switch comes on, and when depressing the switch the LED goes off. That's good, but how do I create a latch, that when the switch is pressed and depressed, the LED will stay on. and only go off after the next press and depress? The attached image is my working switch button. Regards Marinus
Modicon Send 'CTRL' Keystroke
MusicalComa posted a topic in Modicon / Telemecanique / Schneider ElectricI have a Modicon NOM0200 unit connected to an access switch to send commands to various rs-232 devices. The Access switch requires a "disconnect string" to end communication with a particular port. The disconnect string is "CRTL+D", how can I send a "CRTL" keystroke from the NOM0200 unit? I know for carriage return it is "$R" is their a similar combination I can enter for "CTRL"?
andepand posted a topic in CX-ProgrammerHello, A while ago I modernised a magazine gathering / filmwrapping machine. This was a fairly big project for which I used an Omron CJ2M as the main PLC, 10 Wago Ethernet/IP fieldbus couplers, a Keyence CV-X420 vision camera and an Omron NS12 HMI. All of these components run on the same network which contains an unmanaged switch where the HMI, PLC and the first Wago are connected. The Wago’s act as a two port switch since they are all daisy chained. At the end of the Wago chain there is also the vision cam which is connected at the last Wago coupler. At the time I was advised against using Broadcasting instead of Multicasting with a managed switch, but I tried anyway since my networking knowlege is lacking. Also, the only ‘bandwidth demanding data’ comes from the vision system. The Wago couplers contain only digital I/O and high speed encoder inputs run directly to the CJ2M. I haven’t run into any trouble so far and the machine is already producing for over a year. Now , a new project is on the way and it will need even more Ethernet couplers, 15 to be precise. This brings me to my question; is there a limit to the number of nodes in an Ethernet/IP network and will I possibly run in to bandwidth problems by adding more remote I/O and not using a mannaged switch? Also, I would like to get high speed input out of one of the Wago couplers. Thanks in advance for any feedback! Greetings from Holland Andy
Switch Superimposed Window
Russ McKenna posted a topic in MitsubishiUsing GS2107, FX5U. I want to change the JPG image on a screen based on if the value in a text box is either 1 or 2, any other value will also have a single default image. Is there a way to do this via script? Or is there a different way?
Weintek hmi with fx3u128mr
Sajadh posted a topic in HMI & SCADAI have connected weintek 8103ie with fx3u 128m (Mitsubishi). The problem is when I create a toggle switch to hold an input on PLC it doesn't work. But momentary switch works properly. For eg. I want to keep input x1 of PLC on when I press a toggle switch. Also I want to run a coil when I hold a touch input. I can't achieve this in ebpro (IAM new to hmi ) but ok with PLC program.please help
one network ring? (PLC, VOIP, CCTV)
Dan.b posted a topic in General Topics - The LoungeHello all, i'm looking at installing a completely new network for our PLC system, using a ring topology. at the same time i would like to incorporate the IP cameras and VOIP into the same network. each system is on a different sub net, PLC = x.x.1.x, Cameras= x.x.2.x, VOIP= x.x.3.x estimated camera traffic will be 25 Mbps, PLC 10 Mbps, VOIP no more than 1 Mbps switches would be capable of 100 Mbps question: managed or un-managed switches? if it is possible to use un-managed without affecting operations then this would be a massive cost saving please only comment if you have practical experience implementing this many thanks Dan
PV800 HMI multiple position switch
willings posted a topic in HMI & SCADAHi all I am setting up a batch tank system, I have 1 pump which can pump to six different tanks(via pneumatic actuated valves). This is my first go with a HMI, usually I would use a multiple position switch. Is it possible to make a six position selector switch with a HMI? I am using a AB Panel-View 800, has anyone done this before? Any help would be appreciated.
QJ71MB91 Installation of Switch setting
Chistalex posted a topic in MitsubishiHello everyone! I need your help. I use the PLC: Q06UDEHCPU and the module: QJ71MB91. I programmed in the program GX Works 2 I instaled a library of "QJMB91ModbusSerial_V120 (FB - QJMB91ModbusSerialMaster)" and using it wrote temperature sensor interrogation program. The sensor is interrogated by the channel 2 and has the following switch settings: Switch 1 - 0000; Switch 2 - 0000; Switch 3 - 0000; Switch 4 - 0A04; Switch 5 - 0000; which are specified by the PLC parameter in GX Works 2. I found an example of writing a program to install the switch settings in the user manual QJ71MB91 using ZP.UINIT instructions. I wrote a program to this exemple. Not prescribed bit address, which should be established when the program is executed (M0) (ZP.UINIT "U4" D0 M0). I wrote: ZP.UINIT "U4" D0 . After executing ZP.UINIT instruction PLC stops working, blinking error, settings module is not install. How can I write a program to configure the Switch Setting?
Program 16 position rotary selector switch
michael.southerland posted a topic in CX-ProgrammerI have a 16 position rotary selector switch I'm trying to program to a CQM1 PLC, that I will also be programming to a micrologix 1200 in the future, using CX Programmer. The switch connects to the PLC using 4 inputs, and activates the inputs in a binary pattern 0-16 as I turn the switch. For example: if the switch is wired to the first four inputs of the PLC, and is turned to "9" 0.0 and 0.3 will be activated and 0.1 and 0.2 will not, just like binary 9 = 1001. I have tried several things trying to get the PLC to accept these inputs as a single "data-point," and then convert to BCD or Hex to use in a timer. I'm having no luck! Does anyone have any ideas how this is done? The switch is a Tosoku DPP01 015L20RCB, and because of the age of the PLC my instruction set is limited. Thank you in advance!
How to wire AC input just to test with switch
Damica posted a topic in Allen Bradley / Rockwell AutomationUse to working on DC inputs, now I have a PLC I am playing with and the digital inputs are AC, can I still just wire a on/off switch to complete the circuit just for testing? This is a micrologix 1100.
DIY CO2 Controller
Process_engineer123 posted a topic in General Topics - The LoungeGuys, I find CO2 controllers to be too expansive and ugly at 500 $ How can I Take a CO2 sensing chip read it it's signal compare the signal to equal or above a value turn on an AC plug (Type B) when below value, OFF when above valueBaiscally, I want to make a CO2 controller myself (soldering on board, buy individual components, put in a box) This will release CO2 in the room through a solenoid when below 1200 ppm, and shut off the solenoid when above 1200 ppm IF I'm on the wrong forum, could you advice where to ask ? Thank you ! Dominique
Make object change its image in designer area when change language switch?
ct8356 posted a topic in CX-DesignerI 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?
How to set the language switch?
ct8356 posted a topic in CX-DesignerI 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?
