Hello, Just made this account to get an answer hopefully quickly. I have an existing Omron CJ1M that is talking to a ControlLogix over a CJ1W-EIP21. I don't have experience in configuring Omron PLC's, but the Omron and Allen Bradley are already messaging to each other. My question is how can I get more words to be transferred between the two plc's? There are already 4 words (INTS) being transferred and are working properly but I have used up all the bits and am now needing at least 2 more words. I know in RSLogix 5000 I need to make the array size bigger, but where/how do I do that in CX-Designer? Thank you for any help.
Hello, I am a beginner in PLC world trying to find my way through LADDER programming, ST, protocols etc etc and I am slowly getting the hang on it but now I have come accross a troublesome implementation. We have 3 Robotic Cells in my plant each of them consisting of a Fanuc robot communicating via Ethernet IP protocol to NX1P2 PLC controller. The setup of communications is implemented and working as intended but I want to use explicit messaging to manipulate certain Robot Position Registers, Registers and string Registers. I have the needed Fanuc documentation and Omron documentation but I am a little lost. Are there any guidelines I could use to start ?
Hello I have a SLC5/05 and a Microscan MV40 smart camera which receives commands to a TCP port. Is there a way the LSC 5/05 can send a command to the camera using the MSG instruction or any other instruction? I would appreciate any advice
LGreen posted a topic in Allen BradleyI currently use custom PC-based control software that retrieves data from PLCs using explicit messaging, but I'd like to convert this to implicit messaging, to take advantage the fast data exchange. PLC programming isn't my strong suit, so I've started by getting two ControlLogix PLCs exchanging information via implicit messaging (producer/consumer) -- I was hoping to find enough information to extend this to a PC communicating with the PLC, but so far haven't had any luck. Is it even possible to configure PC based software to exchange implicit messages with a PLC? At an RPI of 2ms? Thanks in advance!
