  3. CITECT OMFINS3 Serial

    Hello. I'm having problems communicating with omron CJ1m through SERIAL port. I'm using OMFINS3 protocol. Settings: Citect.ini  Source: 0/10/0  10..Last IP Address (used for TCP/IP) BOARD: BOARD1, COMx PORT: PORT1, PORT Nr=1, BOARD1, 9600, 7 ,2, EVEN DEVICE: OMR_SER, Dev Nr= 1, Address: 0/0/0/S, PROT: OMFINS3, PORT: PORT1 If the Unit number = 0, this works. If I set the OMRON Unit number = 1, this stops to work.  I figured out (using Multiway) that the problem is in FINS HOSTLINK HEADER NODE (Node = 0)  [10:22:07,273]  <--:@00FA080000300000000010007010182000100000372*<CR> [!]: No response If I change the FINS HOSTLINK HEADER NODE (Node = 1)  it WORKS. [10:31:32,336]  <--:@01FA08000030000000001000801018200010000037C*<CR> [10:31:32,445]  -->:@01FA00C0000200010000000008010100008830000000003D*<CR> The problem is, that I don't know where can I change the FINS HOSTLINK HEADER NODE in Citect's OMFINS3 driver. The Citect's OMFINS3 driver always use FINS HOSTLINK HEADER NODE (Node = 0) Can you help me? Thanks.

  6. I've got a client with a Modicon Unity Controller CPU 311_10 with a NOE 771_01 Ethernet card that appears to have security enabled that keeps us from looking at the code. We only tried accessing the CPU web page from a browser and it came up with a Login we couldn't get past. We didn't have Unity Pro software with us at the time but assume we will still encounter the same security login. The person who was responsible for this system is no longer alive, his company is gone, and there is no backup. Does anyone have any idea how to get into this PLC? Thanks in advance for your help.

  7. Hi friends, The scene is like this... I have some 200 energy meters whose readings are continuously logged at 15-min intervals into a logging table. The meter does not have any other value logged. Let's consider these readings as analog tags. However these tag values are continuously increasing to ever larger numbers. Thus we have a problem for display on trends. Customer now requires that the Citect shows usage trends for any meter for a specified period of the past. That is to say, the meter that he wishes to observe is selected - along with a period typically between 2 dates (perhaps also with a sampling period) - and the trend must appear. So in other words, given a single trend object, how do you make values appear for any selected tag on this trend. Perhaps this can be overcome by some genie/super-genie mechanism. My approach to this is...For the selected meter, I use SQL to query the 15 minute logged values (also taking into account the required sampling period) taking the reading on starting date as initial. All values thereafter are subtracted -within the SQL query- and the result of this query is kept in a 2 dimensional array(x for time, Y for value) or a new database table so that the trend displays values starting with zero. This much I can do with Cicode. After this, I need a method to display the values so obtained in a trend object. Essentially this is the same as feeding a trend object with a set of X & Y values that I have in the form of an array or in a database table. I shall greatly appreciate any help to meet the above objective. Thanks for looking in. With best wishes.
  8. Hello Everyone, I am working on reports in Vijeo Citect V7.40. I want to generate a report whenever I press the button. I am able to generate it according to date like making a Cicode file and adding the form, whenever I press the button form will open to give me the option to select the date. Similarly, I am trying to make a form for a time also. Can someone guide me on how to do this? STRING sdate,edate,Em,D,M,Y;              D = DateDay(TimeCurrent());          M = DateMonth(TimeCurrent());          Y = DateYear(TimeCurrent(),1);              sdate= "Start Date";         edate= "End Date";         INT hChannel_M;                  FormNew("Select Report date..",38,2,16);         FormInput(20,0,"DD-MM-YYYY Format",Em,20);                           D = DateDay(TimeCurrent());          M = DateMonth(TimeCurrent());          Y = DateYear(TimeCurrent(),1);                   FormComboBox(2 ,0, 15, 6, sDate, 1);         FormAddList(D + "-" + M + "-" + Y);                     FormButton(8 ,1 ,"Select",0, 1);         FormButton(16 ,1 ,"Cancel",0, 2);         FormRead(0);                  STRING START_DATE_TIME         D = DateDay(StrToDate(sdate));  //DateAdd Will convert only when the date is in System Date Format          M = DateMonth(StrToDate(sdate));          Y = DateYear(StrToDate(sdate),1);         START_DATE_TIME = Y + "-" + M + "-" + D;                       STRING END_DATE_TIME             D = DateDay(DateAdd(StrToDate(sdate),86400));  //DateAdd Will convert only when the date is in System Date Format          M = DateMonth(DateAdd(StrToDate(sdate),86400));          Y = DateYear(DateAdd(StrToDate(sdate),86400),1);                  END_DATE_TIME =  Y + "-" + M + "-" + D;                                  VbCallRun(VbCallOpen("GetRep", START_DATE_TIME, END_DATE_TIME)); This is my code for date selection.

  10. Citect Scada Modent Bit Read

    Hi team; I am struggling with a Citect SCADA read of some data. The system is using the "Modnet3" driver over TCP/IP to talk with a system (Modnet 3 as its TCP/IP with first register at 0 and 0 to 15 bits). I am reading the modbus data into variables which is working fine for the analogue values all defined as real in citect. The Issue I have is that the driver help says I can direct reference a bit in a word, in my case address 45052.1 Holding register 45052 and Bit 1. If I read this as a UINT I get a value of 147 corresponding to bits 1,2,5 and 8. Citect generates no errors for the tag setup where I define 45052.0 through 45052.15 but all remain as zero in tag lists.  Any help would be fantastic Kindest Regards Howard
  11. Hi, very new to PLC programming and desperately looking for some help to finish my project! I need to program a pump to run based on the level in a holding tank. The start/stop set points change throughout the day based on the time. For example, function for the start set point is 1.15372×10^-6 x^6 - 0.000114068 x^5 + 0.00448866 x^4 - 0.0883477 x^3 + 0.877893 x^2 - 3.57417 x + 7.5, where x is in hours. How can I access the PLC time (current hour and minute) so I can use them to calculate the set points? Does Unity Pro XL have pre-defined variables for these?
  12. Hello, I need to enter double confirmation on some buttons but I can't figure out how to configure it. Has anyone ever configured double confirmation on button? (citect scada) Thank you
  13. Hello, I am using Easymodbus library to Communicate with Modicon TM218 PLC. Reading and Writing of Holding Registers working fine. But coming to writing of single bit in data register i am facing Problem. Need to know how we find coil address of a data register. e.g I have to write bit 1 to MW70.1 address. How we do that. Right now i am reading complete MW70 Register and Manipulating it using bit manipulation techniques and again Writing using Write single Register Function. It's working but some times because of reading problem it writes some garbage values. At that time complete system effecting.    Please provide me any solution. Thanks in Advance. 
  14. Hello Everyone, I am writing one logic and need some help regarding that logic.   CURRENT LOGIC -  -There are two timers TON_1 and TON_2. -TON_1 timer will start as soon as PLC turns on. -After the done bit of TON_1 timer, the TON_2 timer goes on. -After the done bit of TON_2 timer, again the TON_1 timer will start. -This logic cycle will run continuously, both timers will run turn by turn. Code (Codesys/Schneider Eco Structure Machine Expert)- PROGRAM POU_1 VAR      TON_1: TON;     TON_2: TON; END_VAR TON_1(IN:=(NOT(TON_2.Q)) , PT:= T#100S); TON_2(IN:=(TON_1.Q) AND (NOT(TON_2.Q)) , PT:= T#20S);   Actual Requirement -  -There is a BOOL tag. -If the BOOL tag gets high during the TON_1 running, the logic should move to the TON_2 immediately. -If the BOOL tag does not get high during the TON_1 running, the logic should move to the TON_2 after completion of TON_1. -after the completion of TON_2, again restart TON_1. -Logic Runs continuously in a cyclic mode.   Give me your valuable idea to fulfill the logic requirement.
  15. 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.    
  16. Hello everyone! I would like to connect a Micrologix 1100 with Citect 7.5 via ABMLXEIP (updated to latest version). I tried everything and it is still not working. The Citect and the PLC are on the same subnet and the ping works fine. All the configuration is done as the manual says (I attach the pictures). I have one NIC card and is connected to the PLC. The role is setted to “Server and Control Client”. The kernel has this error: [ERROR] [CORE] [0x07fc] [IOServer] [(GLOBAL)] [ErrorLog()][errlog.cpp] [266 ] Error: Channel offline, cannot talk CINIT 0015 PORT1_BOARD1 IODev_1100 Error_in_CMD-2 16 Generic 000021 Driver 00000020 (0x00000014) Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks, Gustavo.
  17. 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.
  18.

  19. Hello, I need to replace an obsolete twido PLC to Modicon TM2221ME32TK and in the process would like to get the variables back into Citect SACDA V7.2 I have been reading up on REad_var and write_var but am seeking clarification on how to get the existing %MW, digital inputs %I0.0 etc and outputs  %Q0.0 mapped into modbus registers so SCADA can read them.  I intend to use modbus TCP/IP communcations with the ethernet/ip adaptor.  Do i need to use read and write_var to map into the addresses? Please find attached existing PLC code.   PLC.twd

  21. 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!  
  22.

  23. Hi there! I'm trying to communicate HMIS5T HMI with a Modicon Micro TSX3722001 PLC. The communication is OK, but whenever I try to enter some data into a numeric display I get an error that says "Method or function in Communications System unsupported" and data won't change on PLC's Animation Table. Also, if I modify a variable's value in PL7 Pro, the value in the HMI numeric display won't change properly. It displays the last digit of the binary format of the number (let's say I write a "3" on PL7 Pro, then I get a "1" on the numeric display, despite all data types being UINT, and all ranges are OK. Then if I write any number which binary version ends in 0, I get that 0 on the numeric display, nothing else. Again, all data types and ranges are OK). Changing variables' source on Vijeo Designer to Internal doesn't seem to work. So I'm wondering what else must I do in order to send and receive data from/to HMI and PLC?    Thanks in advance and I hope you can help me! Update: Got this solved. For anyone wondering, Vijeo Designer 6.2 SP8 it's kinda buggy with Unitelway communication. There's a hotfix that solves this problem, provided free by Schneider.
  24. Hello, I am new to Scada Programming. I am using Citect scada V7.50. I have completed whole project, but I am unable to generate Excel report for Alarms generated during run time. Please help me for this issue. Thanks...
  25. Hello, I have an M2I Top RW (model: 1000WD) connected to a Schneider Modicon M221 PLC. The HMI is connected and I is working perfectly reading data from the PLC via ethernet. I can't seem to find a way to write to the PLC from the HMI. I would like to control the PLC from the HMI, I know this is possible with Fatek PLCs with the same HMI model. please help - how would I create a bit command from the HMI to the PLC? what registers? what inputs in the PLC? thanks
