  1. Hello, I'd like to ask for a technical confirmation on using MODBUS TCP in a M340 + Fiber Converter Card (BMXNRP0200C) or Switch (ADAM 6521) + Fiber Optic patch cords and cable topology to communicate with a SCADA system. The main objective is to provide a fiber optic connection point inside a control panel because it is located in a area prone to electrical interference. The protocol to be used would be MODBUS TCP. We have two simple topologies in mind but we are not sure if they are feasible. So i'm asking for a little support about it. Considering the attached simplified topologies (Drawing1.jpg), am I able to use MODBUS TCP to communicate a M340 with a SCADA workstation with no problem? I'm not sure if the protocol allows this kind of change on the physical medium like if it was pure Ethernet.    
  2. How to enable modbus in mitsubishi plc

    hello there, I have Mitsubishi FX3G 24m PLc which has an ethernet port for communication port. how to enable Modbus TCP/IP for data collection of sensor values and sending it to a 3rd party. If this has been answered pls link to the thread.
  3. Hello, Has anyone got an Omron PLC NX1P2-1140DT1 running with Modbus TCP/IP? I tried to reach Schneider several times, but there is "live" or email to discuss or get help, has to go to thru someone from Mexico then he will email to France. All of my attempts was lost, I can establish a "CONNECTION" but I can't READ the Coil - I got the error "Gateway Path Unavailable" (that means  "Used alongside gateways. Basically, this code means the gateway couldn’t allocate an internal path to process the request. Therefore, the gateway could probably be misconfigured or overloaded") My program is based on the MTCP_Client_NJ_E (Revision 2.3 date 23/07/2021 - JP Viskovic from France) I can read the coils using MODBUX Doctor (France) but I can't make work with Etherway. Any advice is welcome. Thanks   MTCP_Client_NJ.slr MTCP_Client_NJ_E.pdf
  4. If this has been asked and answered already, please point me in the right direction. I have a production line that uses Gefran Geflex temperature controllers on a Modbus and Machine Net communication system. The main control panel (MCP) is the master on the Modbus and communicates directly with 3 slave Geflex units (Group Leaders?) which then communicate with the others in that group via a Gefran Machine Net type interface (ribbon cable daisy chained from one unit to the next). The issue is twofold: These temperature controllers are slowly becoming harder to find AND they are a PITA to change out because they have to be put in place and then properly addressed using software on a laptop. This means more downtime waiting for someone who knows how to set these up to get there to do it say on a weekend/middle of the night type situation. (I do like my beauty sleep). I'm looking to replace these units with standard SSRs and control them with a PLC (P-2000 most likely). What I would need to be able to do is interface between the MCP and PLC in some way that the MCP still believes it is controlling 24 units (24 Modbus IDs) and have the PLC receive the reads and writes from the MCP and know which ID it was meant for in order to set the SV and respond with the PV and/or alarm codes as that ID. I hope that all makes sense. Basically I need a way for a PLC to act as if it were 24 separate Modbus slave units. Could I just use a separate HMI next to the MCP? Yes, but there are temperature dependent routines in the main operation of the line (extruder run inhibit, etc.) that requires the information reported back on the Modbus. I've looked into Modbus Gateways but the MGs I've found so far don't seem to be capable of assuming the role of 24 different slaves and interfacing with the PLC in a way that would allow the individual control.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Hi every one. I have strange problem with Modbus communication in Citect 2018. I am communicating to the site switches through Modbus TCP protocol using MODNET driver and reading its sates. I am reading data from Input registers (registers addresses starts from 3x). In default, MODNET driver initializes communication trying conecting to holding register 40001 so I changed initialization in citect.ini to address 30001 because driver didn't want to establish connection because switches don't support holding registers. Now, connection to switches is working but only when page is open where I showing data from them. When I change the page, Citect loses communication and inform this showing alarm on HW alarm page. When I again open page where I show read data, communication back again. Where could be a problem? I will mention that I have more different Modbus TCP devices in project configured and with them don't have such problem. The only difference is that I am reading from holding registers and initialize parameter in citect.ini is not defined for them as for switches.

  7. G9SP Configurator

    I am at a client site that has a line with multiple Omron G9SP-N20S safety controllers installed and I need to make a modification to the system.  I tried to install the Omron Configurator and it asks for a serial number, and will not install without one.  Omron said that it is on the CD that ships with the unit, but the equipment manufacturer did not supply any of the CDs.  The only Omron solution is to order a replacement CD, that will take 5 days, which is 5 days too long as there is a hard stop in 2 days.  I have tried entering numbers found on the controller, with no success.  Does anyone have a better way, special contacts at Omron, to et it faster?

  10. 1783-NATR Modbus TCP

    Has anyone successfully used a 1783-NATR for Modbus TCP communication between a ProSoft MNET card (in the ControlLogix rack) and a Modicon Quantum? ProSoft MNET:  10.x.y.z Modicon Quantum:  192.168.1.x There is one (1) ProSoft MNET and four (4) Modicon Quantum's. NOTE:  I know there are other devices that support this behavior...the NATR is the suggested standard hardware.  We are getting various responses from distribution and support.  ...I was hoping someone in the community could confirm.   Thanks for your time!  
  11. Hi there, I am fairly new to programming serial communications, especially with Mitsubishi PLCs. Can someone walk me through in ladder logic how to bring in ASCII to the PLC, store the data in the data registers. Then send the data out to another PC once an 'X' input is satisfied? ASCII code would go like the following: C2,0,1,123,2,ABC,3,456,CR
  12. Hi I'm trying to set up Modbus RTU communication between FX3U PLC and a weigh module. I would use the ADPRW command using 0X03 to read the 16 bit Holding Register but in the weigh module the Data Address/Holding Register of the value I want to get is 400047 - 400048. How to translate the value in 16 bit?   Thanks, Fabio
  13. Hi,   we have a Mitsubishi PLC Fx3U-128MT and a A&D weighing module AD 4212L. The weighing module supports MODBUS RTU communication via RS-485. We are looking for the most affordable and simpler way to establish communication between PLC and weighing module. At pag 20 of the manual " MODBUS Serial Communication Edition " there are three options of communication equipment. According to your experience, what specific interfaces do you suggest us to invest in? Thanks

  15. HI All,  I have an issue with my SCU32 communication.  Back ground Two SCU32s  (top and bottom side) connected via a 1100M datacable  using port1 ( 9600bps,  8-2-E, start code FF, end code FE, Tx save to d1000-d1200 , Rx save to d2000-d2200). PORT2 of bottom SCU32 is connected to a compass( 2 wire, 8-1-N, 19200 bps, serial gateway MODBUS ). Refer to photo Issue  Without compass, the receiving data at top is very stable and is didn't see any fluctuation. But if is compass is connected at bottom side port2, there is a fluctuation at the top side RX data(specifically d2000-d2005 ) .  I checked the data a bottom side TX (d1000-d1200) and it is stable. Only after sending the data and Receiving at Top side, then only the starting words fluctuate. I am not sure sure what is wrong, I am using logical ports for the DTXDU/DRXDU and compass.   Appreciate all your feedback and suggestions.  
  16. Hello all, I am working on a project where I am communicating with a Mensor CPT6100 pressure transducer using a Micro-850 PLC. For this, I have used an AWA instruction to write some ASCII characters to the sensor. The sensor then responds to the write instruction by sending ASCII characters to the RX buffer and I used ACB and ARD instructions to read the ASCII characters. Now, I have set the ACB trigger type to 0 (msg triggered only once) and it successfully reads from the sensor. However, when I set the ACB trigger type to 1 (msg triggered multiple times), I do not get any reading in the ARD block. As a matter of fact, the ACB Q bit switches off every time the program is executed when the trigger type is set to 1. I am trying to get continuous readings from the sensor, but when the trigger type is set to 0, the program latches on to the first and only reading and it won't change. My question is, how can I change my program so that it can continuously and autonomously read from the sensor without me having to manually trigger the AWA and ACB instructions every time. I am attaching the program to this thread for your reference.  ASCII_Test_Copy.ccwarc
  17. Hi all, I'm having an issue with EcoStructure Control Expert where when using DTM browser I try to connect but I get a message "No Ethernet/IP device at specified address...." My issue is that I had a device communicating using modbus but it has stopped and I cannot diagnosis the issue. I can ping the address and run a modbus poll from a PC on the network and everything performs correctly. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 
  18. Sorry for my bad english speaking. I want to change the baud rate to 19200,38400,.... for send it via Programmer-Serial-Port. The software GX-Developer can do it!.  
  19. Need help in table scrolling

    Hi all, We have a DOP 107CV HMI we interface this HMI with microcontroller through RS485 Modbus protocol. I'm new to HMI and PLC's although we are successful in interfacing HMI with Controller(Communication Established successfully) We made a table in HMI and allotted some registers to Modbus address and data is transferred from controller to HMI up to this we are good in communicating Since the table created is static and we cannot scroll down from that table so, to overcome this problem we found History buffer and made PLC trigger and allotted address. In that History Buffer we created 7 rows and the data is sample whenever we triggered the PLC in that case scrolling is working fine, but the problem we are facing is whenever we update 3 rows out of 7 and triggered the PLC only 3 samples are updated in first column and in the next step we updated the other 4 rows and triggered the PLC the data is sampled on next column but we required it to be sample on first column instead of second.

  21. Hey Everyone,   My company decided to purchase a piece of equipment from China, and I have the pleasure of updating its terrible existing controls. We were given the PLC program by the manufacturer, so I was able to make my changes pretty easily - or at least that would be the case if I could actually connect to the dang thing. The source program is indeed openable and editable via GX developer (the original configuration shows it as an FX3). I figured connecting should be straightforward, but I was wrong.    I initially used a serial/usb converter that I've used on some older Allen Bradley equipment (which worked fine for that). However, after no luck using it on the "Mitsubishi", I purchased a different cable that I found recommended on this forum (Tripp Lite USA-19HS - Still, no luck. I've tried 7E1 and every baud rate possible, as well as some other bit/parity configurations (and yes, I've verified that I'm using the right com port, as well as tried moving the converter to different ports and trying those). Nothing seems to go through.  I have almost no experience with Mitsubishi beyond a couple of FX5s (which have worked fine, but I connect to those via ethernet). Any help would be greatly appreciated; if I can't make these changes, I'm going to end up rebuilding the whole cabinet with a PLC I can rely on.   Thanks in advance.
