  2. Error 2110 SP.UNIT

    Greetings I need some help solving the error 2110 "SP.UNIT" I'm trying to reach the JOG speed parameter from the internal module using the TOP instruction and I don't know why, I reed the manual and still got nothing to solve this error. I'm attaching some images to clarify the issue. Thanks for reading me and helping me to solve this issue.
  3. Hi everyone! I am attempting to read EIP tags from an Allen-Bradley ControlLogix from an Omron NX1P2 using the Sysmac Studio function block "CIPUCMMRead." I have been successful in reading arrays and single variables no problem. However, when I want to read arrays from a structure in the Allen-Bradley PLC, I always get an error code in the CIPUCMMRead ErrorID of either 0400 or 1C00 for ErrorID and ErrorIDEx is FF00 2105 depending on what I enter in for Size on the function block (attaching screenshots with both error codes).   The errors show on multiple "read" function blocks at once but it only affects data coming out of the function block where I try to read in a BOOL array from a structure in the ControlLogix PLC. If I enter a UINT#1 for the Size, I get ErrorID 0400. If I enter UINT#2, 3, or 4, I get ErrorID 1C00 with ErrorIDEx being FF00 2105. I've been digging for a while and can't find that specific combo of codes, but it looks like it's a size issue. From what I can tell, the Size is in Bytes. So if I have 32 Bools it should be a Size of UINT#4 max, right? Any help would be greatly appreciated! The function block having issues is setup the exact same as the other two that read from the same structure; I even copied and pasted them from each other and just changed the FB name and the postfix in the SrcDat string (from MyBools to MyDints/MyReals). Here are the screenshot: 1. Allen-Bradley Structure 2. CIPUCMMRead Function Block with size 4 3. CIPUCMMRead Function Block with size 1
  4. Change PLC model in GX Works 3

    Hello. The project I'm in have decided to switch cpu-model from R04ENCPU to R32. It does not seem possible to change it in the module config / hardware view. I try to delete the old CPU, but cpu module cannot be deleted... Anybody know?
  5. Hello all, I have the need for PLC to calculate a giving time shift pattern, so if I start Monday 8am on a 24h prod basis, and the production run is 48h, the PLC should tell HMI finish time is Wednesday 8am, that is ok, the problem is, Production stops from Saturday 8 am, and starts again Monday 8am. Thus if I start prod run on Friday 8am, PLC should tell HMI (Got2000), production finish time should be Tuesday 8 am. I can read RTC, compare, do maths, but how can I miss or not take into account Saturdays from 8 am till Monday 8 am...that is my problem.   Any thoughts, ideas, are all welcome. Thanks.

  7. Omron FINS/TCP Reconnecting

    Hey I'm trying to implement reconnecting for FINS/TCP protocol, according to W421 Omron documentation (link: ), but it not working. According to diagram in 7-4 section at 183 page, after connection lost and restore connection to the Internet, Client(PC) should again connect with PLC using the same Client(PC) FINS Node Id. PLC should detect connection error and response with error code 00000021 hexadecimal: Specified node is already connected. It works. After this should I close socket (created after restore connection) or this socket should be closed automatically by PLC? Then I should create new socket (third) and connect with the same Client(PC) FINS Node Id should be possible. But i've got "Specified node is already connected" error again. PLC dosn't forget before connection. Why? What I'am doing wrong?   // Client FINS Node id = 50, Server FINS Node id = 10. Standard communication works public void TestReconnect() { // connect on TCP Layer this.tcpClient.Connect(base.ipEndpoint); // NADS Frame - finsClientNode = 0 - autoallocation this.SendNodeAddressDataSend(); // Power interruption!!! // creating new socket, old socket is unavailable this.tcpClient = new TcpClient(); // connect on TCP Layer this.tcpClient.Connect(base.ipEndpoint); // NADS Frame - use finsClientNode autoallocated before // should return error "The specified node is already connected." this.SendNodeAddressDataSend(); // disconnect on TCP Layer, should i do this? this.tcpClient.Close(); // creating new socket, old socket was closed this.tcpClient = new TcpClient(); // connect on TCP Layer this.tcpClient.Connect(base.ipEndpoint); // NADS Frame - use finsClientNode autoallocated before // shouldn't return error "The specified node is already connected." // because connection with this node was closed before this.SendNodeAddressDataSend(); } private NodeAddressDataSendResponse SendNodeAddressDataSend() { /* byte clientNodeId = finsRequestDataProvider.GetClientNodeId(); byte[] header = new byte[] { F, I, N, S, // 'F' 'I' 'N' 'S' 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x0C, // 12 Bytes expected 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, // NADS Command (0 Client to server, 1 server to client) 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, // Error code (Not used) 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, clientNodeId // Client node address, 0 = auto assigned };*/ var nodeAddressDataSendRequest = this.finsRequestFactory.CreateNodeAddressDataSendRequest(); var nodeAddressDataSendResponse = this.Execute(nodeAddressDataSendRequest); this.finsRequestDataProvider.StoreAutoallocatedNodeId(nodeAddressDataSendResponse.ClientNodeId, nodeAddressDataSendResponse.ServerNodeId); return nodeAddressDataSendResponse; }   Thanks for any help          
  8. Melsec Medoc K2N

    Hi, I have a client with an old K2N CPU configuration. Is there a communication module that I can use, so that I can upload the excisting program to my PC with my old version of melsec medoc, over RS232? We need the program to upgrade the PLC to a new type. But they don't have a program or a listing of the program.
  9.   Hi guys.   On our company we got several different PLC system but right now I´m focusing on a Mitsubishi Q-system with device-net master QJ71DN91.      We are going to make communication with SMC-JXCD1 controller for a actuator.   But I have no experience with DeviceNet and unfortunately there is no files, functionblock, or program examples what I can find.  Not even Mitsubishi or SMC had some for these two together so I turning the Question into this forum instead😊   Previously I´ve used profibus on a fx3U system and FX5U-Simple CPU communication protocol to talk with slaves in a network.    I got on hold of some old document from Beijer from where I got 3 functionblocks for devicenet.    1.DnInitiateQ  2. DnSupervisorQ 3. DnDataQ 4. DnMessageQ     So maybe I can have some help from these but I´m still not sure how to send/receive information to the SMC-nodes.   I´m a little confused about if I should use the master with I/O communication or  master with explicit messages?  The later I haven´t even heard of.    I was only thinking about creating array of word to receive and send info to the nodes.   But my knowledge of this communication protocol is very low.        Anyone know´s how to get me started?  Or can provide some kind of example in GX IEC or GX works.       
  10. Hi all  I need to view a project in instruction list format on Mitsubishi GX Works 2. On GX developer the shortcut is Alt + F1 or View tab then press instruction list.   Thanks 
  11. CC-Link IE Protocols

    Hello, There seem to be a lot of different CC-Link IE protocols: CC-Link IE Field Basic CC-Link IE Field CC-Link IE Field Motion CC-Link IE Field Safety CC-Link IE Control CC-Link IE TSN This causes me some confusion. Are there as many variations of Ethernet/IP and PROFINET? Can you point me to a good comparison of the different CC-Link IE protocols? My understanding is that: CC-Link IE Field Basic: 100 Mb/s Non-deterministic? Good for non-time-critical communications (e.g., setting a drive speed) Implemented in software Traffic can co-exist with other TCP/IP traffic Max 64 stations Addressed by IP address Star topology I believe the other protocols are all 1 Gb/s, are deterministic, are addressed by station number, are implemented in hardware and each needs its own isolated network. CC-Link IE Control is used for communications between PLCs and robots. CC-Link IE Field is used for remote I/O and CC-Link IE TSN is used for even faster remote I/O communications. Please let me know if any of this is inaccurate. Thanks,
  12. I've set up 20 or so of my alarms under the 'User Alarm Observation' section. I then added an 'Alarm Display (User)' object. Will this object display my alarms when they come in? I'm noticing an Alarm ID section in the 'Alarm Display (User)' object section. What is this Alarm ID for? Can the 'Alarm Display (User)' object only display one alarm? That doesn't seem to make any sense? How would I got about configuring this object so that it will show all my alarms as they come in? Thanks!
  13. Hello and good day I have a Mitsubishi fx1n-14mr PLC controlling a band saw. The PLC is connected via a DB925 - MD8M cable to a Beijer/mitsubitshi E100 HMI for communications and as a power supply via RS-422. When powered on the display on the E100 panel fluctuating, i.e. the screen turns on and off repeatedly. If the main switch is then switched off, then on again the screens seems to stay on and the machine operates normally. The PLC has a built in AC/DC power supply and I suspect that is may be the problem. Is is possible to switch out the AC/DC module? To make sure that the E100 panel is not the problem I want to connect a 5V external supply to the port located on the back. Is it safe to have the RS-422 and the 5V external supply connected simultaneously?
  14. Hi. what i've gathered, i need an EDS-file for the siemens s7-1200-system to be able to specify an ethernet connection in sysmac from the omron plc side to connect to the siemens ethernet/ip server. Anyone know where or how to get an EDS file for the siemens plc so i can import it into EIPprofiles in sysmac?
  15. Hi, This is my first application working with a Mitsubishi HMI GT2107-WTBD using GTDesigner 3. Is it possible to have an Ack bit going from the HMI to the PLC when the operator acknowledges an alarm? I've found how to set up comments for alarms and trigger alarms but can't figure out how to link an ACK bit back to the PLC. Thanks.
  16. GOT2000 <-> Omron CJ PLC

    I have an application where I'm using GOT2000 to read data from the weighing unit using RS232 and I send this value to Omron CJ2M through Ethernet/IP. Some variables from that PLC are connected to the elements of the HMI. The problem is when writing the weight value to the PLC through script or Data Transfer is disabled, the RS232 reading works fine, it's fast, etc. However, when I enable the script which writes data to the PLC, the RS232 slows down by a lot, like it refreshes every 2-3 seconds. If i set the script to execute like every 1-2 seconds, it is working better (still slower compared to when the script is disabled) but I cannot leave it like this, because the weight is used to control some valves, pumps, etc. Enabling script doesn't slow down normal communication with PLC, because I tried to test it by displaying the value of seconds from PLC on the HMI and it refreshes every second. Does anyone have idea why such tiny script causes so many problems with RS232?
  17. I'm trying to exchange some data between two controllers. I've used a manual which describes Tag Datalink communication. Everything works fine on the Bradley side, which means I can read values from Omron without problems. However, on the CJ it isn't working. In the Network Configurator I get error every 10 sec (Tag data ling error, code 03D5) and cannot read any data from AB. When I open Connection Structure Tree I see that the input tagset from AB has 'Broken path (0000000000000)' and Unknown Device right next to IP address. I've tried using EDS from the Rockwell as well as uploading it from AB PLC directly - I don't know if it might be EDS issue. The only thing I noticed that inside CJ2M-EIP21 EDS it says that Ethernet/IP is Class 1 connection, however in the 1769-L35E EDS Ethernet/IP is Class 2 connection. Have anyone ever had such a problem?
  18. Has anyone have any experience getting a Wieland Safety plc (SP-COP1-ENI) communicate with an Omron Plc (NX102) via Ethernet/IP? EDS file installed, connection is set as per the documentation yet  I cannot get it connected.

  24. Hi all. I am new to Autonics and Mitsubishi. I am trying to read and write the data of an Autonics TK series temperature controller using RS-485 with QJ71C24N-R4 coupled with Q00UCPU. I have the hardware setup as attached images. Software setup are as follows:  TK4 Settings: Communication address: 01-99 Communication speed: 38400bps Communication parity bit: none Communication stop bit: 2 Communication Response waiting time: 20 Communication write: Enable Mitsubishi Intelligent Function Module: CH2: Operating: Independent Data Bits: 8 Parity Bit: None Even/Odd parity: Odd Stop bit: 2 Sum Check code: None Online Change: Enable Setting Modifications: Enable Communication Rate Settings: 38400bps Communication Protocol Settings: Predefined protocol Task to be carried out: 1. Read SV 2. Read PV 3. Write SV I have the address for the modules but I am not sure how to communicate or the program which allows to reading/writing. I had tried to follow the attached PDF but i cant key in the first line as there is a bit with "G450" which has an error stating "the device No. is over usable range" and  "An unusable device has be designated". I hope someone here could guide me in writing the program, or any reference for me to follow.  TK-Q02H_RS485_EN_Technical_support_180823_W.pdf
  25. Hi! We have a GOT2000 HMI with a Q06UDVCPU system. During an investigation, I found that the address on the HMI (for example D10120) and the address in the PLC (D10020) are different. The value is the same, it appeared instantly during monitoring, but when I searched for it, didn't find it (I couldn't find the D10120 in GxWorks2, and couldn't find D10020 in GtDesigner3). The HMI's address is 100 higher. I never saw anything like that. Where is this difference can be set? Knowing this, I can navigate in the's just annoying.
