  1. Cimplicity 7,5

    Good Day There is a SCADA Cimplicity and controller Control logix 5561 AB. Communication between them is organized via Ethernet IP. It is necessary to transfer some tags from the Cimplicity to the controller Control Logix. How to do it better? Through Rslinx DDE OPC or write scripts in the Cimplicity? 
  2. 1.Can anyone say how can i communicate control logix plc with ethernet to serial converter. here i am not having any eds file.
  3. Does anyone here use this? Control Draw If so how useful do find it? Worth spending the time on learning or better off with another product? If so what? My application is going to be for in-house management and design of control systems for a food manufacturing plant.   Thanks.
  4. Looking for some servo application help. Software: I have GX works 2, GT Designer, and GX Developer.  Hardware: PLC L06CPU-P, GOT2000 HMI, MR-J4-350B servo amps, HG-JR35JK motors, LD77MS2 Pulser I have (2) AC servos that will simply move an aluminum frame backwards and forwards using a FESTO belt mover and I have a servo gear reducer 20:1. I have a "simple motion module"and all of this hardware and software, plenty of time, and would really like to finish this project off. But this is my first servo and my first hmi project. I have some experience with Omron, Mitsubishi, and Allen-Bradley plc's, and consider myself novice at best. Any sample programs or help getting me started would be greatly appreciated!  
  5. Hello, I am currently working on programming my first sortation system.  Attached is a blue print of the in feed conveyors and their loadout lines.  As boxes merge together they will be scanned by the barcode scanner.  From there we will be told which lane each box must go down, from the WCS.   My question is, without encoders, what would be the best way to control this system? Counting the packages as they pass through the photoeye? Or setting timers?   Thanks, James Sorting Conveyor Layout.pdf
  6. On-Off Temperature control

    Hi, i'm actually working on a project with a CPU33 CJ2M and a external analog output CJ1W-AD04U I'm trying to read the informations coming from a PT100 sensor and control a valve which act on the temperature. i'm kind of lost in this project because it's my "first time" with Omron ! Which function block must i use or how must i program this would you show me example ?  Thank you for the help guys.
  7. Hi Here's a question I'm about to ask Omron.. as soon as I can figure out who to ask.. It's complicated asking support.. their web email form doesn't make complex questions easy. Here's the question: Can the NJ CPU program a LinMot linear motor to make the "Random Sea"? The NJ has a mixed protocol.. Ethernet/IP and EtherCAT (CoE),  and claims to be a "Motion Controller".    I doubt Motion Control is available on it's Ethernet/IP line.. but the EtherCAT might be another story.   Certainly The Omron NJ is a Motion Controller for Omron NJ series drives.. However, how well does it work with LinMot? Here's the curve.  Imagine a LinMot Linear motor continuously moving, never really stopping, following a real-time, mathematically generated curve, moving positive then negative, at random frequencies and random amplitudes. Almost never repeating a motion sequence. looks something like this: Yet, after a while the motion history fully represents the spectral distribution of energy on the surface of the ocean. Spectrum analyzers can display it, and mathematics can define it..  I just have to make that sea in a model scale…    (Time scales by the square root of the scale factor) And keep the water in the tank: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQd6YzBWVvI The big question is: Can the Omron NJ get a LinMot Linear Motor to do this? … LinMot thinks YES.. but, isn’t sure. Yes there are ways to “connect" LinMot to The NJ.. EtherCAT (CoE), Ethernert/IP but… there is nothing in the LinMot drive that can create or store a predesigned Random Sea .. Only a Motion Controller, generating real time motion commands, by running  mathematical equations, "on the fly” can do that.   If the NJ is a true “Motion Controller”, and the LinMot C1250-DS-XC is implemented as an “axis” by Symac Studio, which it is…       Then, there may be hope. Closed loop, PID feedback remains with the LinMot drive, with special settings in LinMot Talk … Homing might have to be done with the NJ .. or by Digital I/O’s What do the Omron experts out there think?  Can this be done? Thanks much, Regards, Michael

  10. Particulate Measurement In CX Programmer?

    I am currently in the process of an efficiency project for a company looking to measure at what point their process starts to create particulate (in this case, smoke) so we can accurately defer the smoke into a combustion chamber to be burnt off. My question is, is it possible to use the Dywer SERIES PMT2 Particulate Transmitter for our measurements using a CJ2M-CPU33 Omron Controller and CX Programmer. http://www.dwyer-inst.com/PDF_files/PDS/DS_PMT2Rev.1.pdf If we can use this, I am wondering which cards I would have to get for communication to this transmitter? CUrrently I have analog in and out, (DA041 and AD081-V1), and digital in and out, (ID211 and OC201). Any information on getting this sensor set up is appreciated. I am not familiar with this type of process control. *****FYI If this is not the correct topic to post this, please move it to the correct one.*****
  11. MR J3 A SERVO

    I want to run MR J3 A type 10 nos servo without using network, I'm to run servo using hardwired.please name motion controller to run 10 servo on hardwired..  
  12. Hello admin, Im new to PLC domain , i have one OMRON CP1E N30 with in built RS 232 port and ladder program to run in Homing and forward and reverse motion. I want to control the PLC from a computer using RS 232 communication. From what little i read from manual supplied for programming ,i came to know that there are two type of commands C mode as well as Fins commands. My doubt is whether these commands can read/write CIO memory addresses that are used to set and reset the motor enable/disable in ladder program through CX programmer software? for example: in my ladder program CIO memory address 30.00 is the motor enable/disable address so if i want to control externally from a PC to enable/disable the motor ,which commands should i use and is there a format to send these commands as well as the value. I am planning to build a GUI in Labview to cotrol the PLC via Serial RS 232 . How can i do it ? Thanks in advance.
  13. Hi everyone! I am currently using both Motion controller Q172DSCPU and Simple motion controller QD77MS for my application. I spent time for Advance synchronous control with Motion controller QD172DSCPU. However, I wonder that is there any solution to combine synchronous control and interpolation control? For example, I need controlling 4 axes consisting of 3 axes for helical interpolation and 1 axis for linear position control. The problem is that all 4 axes start and complete position at the same time. Does anybody have experience in this? please share your ideas. Thanks in advanced.  
  14. Beckhoff Control panel testing?

    I am a technician at a large repair facility and we often have Beckhoff control panel displays come in for repair. I'm having trouble using Twincat to set up the buttons on a CPxx to test the buttons and assignable leds. We have a PC running windows XP with the twincat software, a CP9035 pci card to connect the CP to the pc, i can see the PC's display on the CP and also recognize the CP in twincat, just unsure how to map testable functions to the keys on the CP. Hope this all makes sense. Hopefully there is a Twincat guru out there that knows how to do this. Thank you!!
  15. Ground Loop

    Hello everyone, I have a quick question regarding Din rails, chassis ground and ground loops. Here is where I am getting confused. I connect my back panel to earth ground which, connects my control panel chassis to earth ground. I screw din rails on my back panel. Question #1: logically, my din rails are now connected to earth ground through the screws connecting to din rails to the back panel. Am I wrong here? As I have seen in many control panels, I connect a ground terminal block to my din rail and connect it to earth ground (the terminal block couples with the din rail through metal clamps). I now use that ground terminal block as a single point source to ground all my other components in the control panel (I connect my ground terminal block to earth ground using a wire).. *** the ten thousand dollar question is Didnt I just create a ground loop between my ground terminal block mounted on the din rail and my back panel chassis ground. For one reason or another the two different location might be at slightly different potentials causing current to flow. Where is my logic off here???? Thank you
  16. hI.. I've asked for this in the past and, so far, haven't been very lucky.  Most of the projects I run into have 4 or 5 axis, lots of analog and sensor input.. or don't have the HMI part of the "Machine" I have a nice NJ 101-1000 with the NA 7 inch HMI.. along with a R88BD-KNA5L-ECT servo and a 50W  G5 motor.. type  R88M-K05030H-S2.  All On a nice rack with power supplies and some EtherCAT I/O  (It all functions .. even "MC Test Run" gets the motor to jog ..    But.. no way to "home" it.... The motor is in "rotary mode"   but... it's NOT got an Absolute encoder.. it's a incremental... sniff!     I just want it to stop on zero ..Or anywhere, and call it zero ... and make moves plus an' minus in degrees, that's all....  I assume I have to send it some signal (push button) while it's spinning that tells it it's in "Proximity" to home and it then it does something which makes it end up on zero.    I've homed a lot of linear motors (LinMot) an' they are very easy to work with.    But, Omron has 10 different homing modes .. and they aren't very well explained.  Well, they aren't explained at all in that 502 page user manual... you have to already know how to do it, in order to understand the explanation... Example:  Take the "Home Proximity Input Signal"  .. I can imagine what it might do, to help control a move to home.  I can even imagine what's making the signal .. and that somewhere there is a place where the homing parameters are set... like the "axis setting table"  .. but, it's not a Global Variable, or a Data Type .. I could imagine it gets into the system from the CN1 I/O connector? or some I/O somewhere? But.. I grow weary of imagining how this system actually works..  Building a simple working project, from a tutorial, or even downloading a simple working project (.smc2 file) and making the minor adjustments to fit my equipment ... would make all the difference in the world.   I've searched Omron's Libraries of .smc2 files.  Haven't found any yet that aren't on the level of "Top Gun" (a seriously complicated project for a 1-week training class) ... Oh there are several.. related to IAG object files .. but those Library files are not "working projects" intended to serve as a Tutorial.. they are limited projects, ready to be configured with IAG Object files, and "your" programming ... So that you can write the programs you need "faster"... which is nice... but, no help here. Somewhere out there.. is a nice simple .smc2 project file where you get to control a simple motor from the HMI  ..Preferably using an NJ CPU and a NA HMI .. home the motor.. jog the motor and input a few "go-to" positions... sigh!..   Like you would do in a One or Two Day class...   This kind of thing should be already be available in the Sysmac Library ... Thanks much for listening..  sorry about the rant.  
  17. RSLogix Tag Name Confusion

    I am trying to learn the logic of a process at my new job. There are tag names that I can't make sense of because they end with _xva, _xvb, _xvu, _xvd, _xvo, _xvc, _zsm, _zsu, _zsc, _zso, _zsd and so on and so forth. I know they are associated with motion, but I need to make better sense of them. There are no descriptors. What do they mean and is there a resource available that I can reference?

  19. Temperature controling with module

    Hello to everybody! This time I need to make a program to control temperature ... Some help? I don't know how to use an analog module, I'm just starting to working with them. The PLC I have a FX3u-32MR/ES (Mitsubishi), and I have the modules; FX3u-4AD-ADP and FX3u-4AD-PT-ADP for temperature measurement. PLEASE HELP? Have a good day!
  20. i need a example code for position control of MR-J3-20A with QD75D4 as intelligence module. and i want to see the parameter if possible  
  21. Just wondering if I need to set up two Motion Groups to specify the direction of travel along 1 AXIS? (Forward and Reverse) If not, how do I specify direction when using motion instructions (specifically MAM) with incremental motion. 
  22. EMS provides low cost analog sensors useful for PLC analog inputs. For example the $25 temperature sensor (+/- 2%) is a useful and inexpensive way to monitor for an over temperature condition in a panel cabinet. emssensors.com AC voltage and current transmitters can be a useful way to monitor motor performance. Even the sound level sensor can be a good way to generate an alarm condition for a bearing failure.
  23. Hello, I'm new to this forum and PLC world in general (especially to Mistubishi PLCs). I have a task in which I need to synchronize servomotor with another motor that runs conveyer (servomotor needs to stamp a label on a foil on a conveyer), in GX Works3. Servo motor is run by Simple Motion module. I need general tips on how to make pulses from encoder into something useful that can be used to send data to Simple Motion module. I need high speed counter to count pulses (never actually did this, I got this from manuals), how would I, for example, get speed out of it? Number n pulses, divide it with time it took to get to n pulses? How would I make Simple Motion to make servomotor on his Axis #1 to rotate at same speed?    
  24. We are replacing the Old hardware from PLC to new Control logix hardware. wondering Application of IEC-61508 and IEC-61511 compliance in this brown field project. Any Thoughts ??
