  1. HI, I'm reading values from an SBC SAIA PLC ( PCD2.M5540 model). My problem is that some values are 32 bit, while modbus return 16 bit values, of course. Registers are consecutive, so I cannot read for example 9008 and 9009 since they store 2 different information.To make it clearer I attach the PLC watch window. As you can see R9009 is a 32 bit value, but I can't require R9009 and R9010 via modbus since in R9010 register there is a different information. AS well as in R9008. Speaking with SAIA technical support, they explain me that their PLC registers are natively 32 bit, so in order to read them I need a 32bit modbus client. I cannot find anything like this, neither I can use standard modbus, since the buffer I get back is a 16 bit for each register. So 16bit for R9008, 16bit for R9009, 16 bit for R9010. What I can do?Thanks
  2. Hi all,  I am trying to modify the date and time of several PLCs from other PLC. Them are all CJ2M, and they are all in the same ethernet network (192.168.100.xx) and in the same FINS network (#1). I am doing it using the FINS command 07 02 ("CLOCK WRITE") with the CMND2 instruction. It is not working entirely: the clock time is being modified at the specified node; however, I do not get the FINS response (expected 07 02 00 00). If I modify the number of retries of the CMND2, the command is repeated all the specified retries though the clock was already written on the first try.  The D+0 and D+1 (response channels) are always #0; nevertheless, the I+1 ("Communication Completion Code" channel) allways receives #205. Acording to the manuals, this code is for "Response Timeout". I have tested it with 10 retries and with 10.0 seconds of monitoring response time, but it is working in the same way: the clock is modified fast enough, but I am not getting the FINS Response and the I+0.00 bit is ON after 100 seconds...  I have been also doing tests with the OMRON's Etherway Software, sending the same FINS command, and here I am getting the response properly. (???) I would say the FINS network was set-up correctly. All the PLC were set in network #1 with Cx-Integrator. In fact, they are currently sharing several channels using the SEND command on this network #1. I don't know what I am not doing right... Any idea?  The ladder is attached as .cxp and as .png. Thanks a lot.  Best regards.  CLOCK_WRITE.cxp
  3. Hello, everyone! I am following this YouTube tutorial where it teaches you how to add a block of Modbus server within Studio 5000 for communication with plc ControlLogix. The video: https://youtu.be/qcF4m7rPjkw However, according to a comment from the author of the video himself in my comment I can make such a connection through a Modbus device. How do I do this within ur5 and how can i access UR5 inside Studio 5000?
  4. Gx Simulator3 and TCP modbus

    Hi, I'm new to the Mitsubishi world, so may be anyone help me in a quick! I need to test a my client with the Mitsubishi MODBUS tcp.  To do this I would like to avoid use a real plc and use  the Gx Simulator3 that come with the Gx Works3. The question is: the Gx Simulator3 is capable to simulate a MODBUS tcp module? To be more specific I tried this: - created a project in  Gx Works3 with a FX5U CPU. - configured the FX5U built-in ethernet module with IP address of the hosting pc (also tried 127.0.0.1 with no success). - activated and configured the MODBUS muster to the built-in ethernet module. - wrote a trivial ladder program with a 1 input and 1 coil. I can download and run the project on the Gx Simulator3 but I cannot connect to tcp port 502 that I supposed opened by the MODBUS muster functionality of the build-in ethernet module. Do anyone know if the Gx Simulator is able to simulate modbus tcp functionality?   Thanks in Advance Luciano.

Need help, pls support.     
  9. FX5U Modbus-TCP Server (Slave)

    Hello everybody. I need a solution for Modbus-TCP server on the PLC. With the FX3U it would work with the FX3U-ENET module. The internal interface of the FX5U should actually be able to work with the library of the FX3U (FX3GModbusTCPServer_GW2_V100) or not? Because a socket connection is now possible. I would be happy about suggestions. Dave
  10. I am trying to POST API to a meter in Maximo using a socket in a 5069-L320 controller. I am able to successfully create and open the socket. The write and read instructions get the DN bit but I do not see the meter updating in Maximo. I was able POST successfully using Postman, so I know I am sending the correct information. Do I need to be formatting the POST differently? I'm not getting errors so don't have a direction to go from here. (I will fix the obvious username and password vulnerability, one step at a time) Thanks
  11. Hello, I'm new to setting up my controllers and communication between devices.  We wanted to see if using Modbus TCP/IP to communicate to a load bank was the right path for us.  I was able to configure my Micrologix 1400 controller Channel 1 for Modbus and set the data files.  I set up a read holding register 03 message, two write single register 06 messages and one write multiple registers 16.  I was able to read the data from the load bank, but I was unable to send any write commands.  I didn't get any errors in the messages.  I was able to send write commands through my pc to the load bank and it responded properly.  So I was thinking I must of missed something in my set up in the PLC. I'm attaching the PLC Program and the command set from the manufacturer.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  16. hello, Somebody have suggest how need read data from slave using modbus RTU. I am using M241 PLC and read_var function. The picture you can see my PLC program. The data of slave is placed 3394 address. Then I try to read, always "READ_VAR" function get "CommError" which number is 254 that means "The detected operation error contains protocol- specific code"  and "OpenError" which number is 3 that means I don't know. How need read from slave data, which modbuss adress is 3394?

  18. HOSTLink read multiple DMs

      Hello,    I am using Hostlink protocol to read data from PLC units. for example @00RD22220001..., will return DM2222's value. But I want to know, if I could read multiple DM values at the same time. for example: DM2222, DM3000, DM4000, reading these DMs with one communication. Please note that these are not continuous DM areas. I know a sequence of DMs can be read by specifying starting address and count.   Many thanks in advance.   Ting              
  19. Here is a post that we recently completed on the Automation Direct USB to RS485 Adapter.  The USB-485M is a 2-wire USB to RS-485 serial communication adapter for RS485 use. It does not require an external power supply or complicated configuration. It has a Type A (plug) USB connector for the computer side and a universal female RJ45/RJ12 modular connector. This will accept RJ12 and RJ45 plugs.  The USB-485M supports multiple baud rates and is USB V2.0 Compliant. Read the rest of the post...

  21. MX2 Modbus doubt

    Hi there! I'm programming a CP1L-E CPU to control 3 3G3MX2 inverters via Modbus. It got some things right, like the INV002_Refresh_X31 block and its parameters. The thing is, I also want to read some parameters from the inverter using the INV206_ReadParameter block. My doubt is, do I need to be careful so both blocks don't execute at the same time and use the serial port at the same time? Is it better to use one INV206_ReadParameter block for each parameter I want to read? Thanks in advance!
  22. Good Morning,   My name is Joseph Rhodes, I work as an electronic technician for the City of Tuscaloosa at the wastewater treatment plant. I work to keep the plant up and running as well as 64 lift stations spread out around Tuscaloosa, Alabama. A majority of our lift stations utilize Verizon Cell Modems, RV50s to be exact. It's rather easy connecting remotely to these lift stations as I can configure a driver as an ethernet / ip driver then associate an IP of that lift station (ex. 10.181.3.104 is lift station 104, 10.181.3.105 is lift station 105, etc). However, for the lift stations that do not utilize cell modems. We use GE MDS 9710 and 9810 radios. It is these lift stations that I have yet to figure out a way to connect remotely to the LS RTU PLC. All of our lift stations use Allen Bradley MicroLogix 1200s or 1400s. These lift stations that use the MDS radios communicate information to water tanks then that information is sent back through other channels. I was wondering is there a way to associate these lift stations on RSLinx that use GE MDS radios ?   
  23. GOT2000 as MODBUS TCP slave

    I have this setup: FX3G CPU connected to GT2103 through RS422 (CH1). GT2103's ethernet port connected to LAN and set up as modbus TCP slave (CH2). I want to read/write PLC word devices using a modbus TCP client, from a PC. The HMI is acting as a gateway between PLC and PC. I used the Device Data Transfer function to send PLC's D register values to GT's internal GD registers. D0....D9 ==>  GD0....GD9 After some tries, I get valid response from the modbus slave. Reading the holding registers 0....9 (40001....40009), I get only zero values. Those registers can be written back with different values, correctly. I'm sure I didn't understand correctly the modbus address mapping to GT's internal memory. Can anybody help me? Thank you.
  24. Hi all, I am trying to communicate KEPServerEX with FX3GE vis UDP protocol. I have tried but unable to get data on Kepserver. While configuring communication properties in PLC we have configured PLC IP, PLC Port, Destination IP, but unable to find correct Destination Port. Although we tried various port nos like 49320, 57412, 57512, 56233, 1025, 32402, 57212, 57012, 57612, 57812 but there was bad quality data using UDP For same PLC using TCP/IP we were able to read all tags properly. This change in communication protocol is required as there are some PLCs whose communication port drops after few days of connection establishment (no error logged; can be re established with just restart). Someone from Mitsubishi said to try communication via UDP as it continuously fetch data regardless of kind of response received. If anybody has tried or have any solution, please do share.   Thanks
  25. Hello everyone    I am working on modbus TCP protocols to communicate between SEW drive and Omron PLC CP1L-EM. I am following modbus TCP function block from Omron, But i have updated that block because of is not fit to SEW modbus communication. Currently, I am sending a control work to SEW but I am getting error on Modbus TCP from SEW drive, which is invalid data. So I am looking your help is you work with SEW drive before and communicate over modbus, then please let me know how to make a data string for read and write (SEW Drive function 23). I am using 3PD data structure.    Thank you
