How to connect two NB HMI's to NX102 PLC via Ethernet
NatC posted a topic in NJ Series / Sysmac StudioI am new to automation systems and devices and I just want to know how to connect two HMI's (each one would control different things) to one PLC using Sysmac Studio and NB-Designer via Ethernet. The model of the PLC is NX1029020 and the HMI's are one NB10W-TW01B and an NB7W-TW01B. I searched for info about this topic online but I couldn't find anything that worked for me, I saw an article from OMRON where they connect two NB's to the CP series, but in my case, NB designer doesn't allow me to insert more than one HMI in the same project, I also found something similar on a youtube video that gave me an idea about how to connect multiple HMIs exporting the pks file and importing it to another HMI project but I still can´t figure out how to add both to my PLC. I would thank you a lot if you could help me with this because I know it's not a rare implementation, just I haven´t found the right way to do it. I also leave the links to the Omron article and the youtube video I found. https://www.myomron.com/index.php?action=kb&article=1554 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXx5lut7G9I
Multiple Machine Integration
Cegge posted a topic in Computer Help and NetworkingOk guys, this is more a networking question involving a Stratix 5700 managed switch and 5 machines. The five machines all have set IP addresses from the OEM that cannot be changed. The manufacturer has them set in the program to maintain that IP ,so if it sees the IP change it will change it back. With that being said all Five machines have the exact same IP configuration and I cannot change it without contacting the manufacturer and getting them to change it or sell me the program so i can change it. both options will costs entirely too much in my opinion. With that being said my only goal is to read tags from the PLC on each machine. Is there anyway to set each port on that Stratix switch where i can communicate with each machine individually without causing them to have IP address conflicts with the other machines that have the same IP address. I hope I explained my question well enough. Thank you in advance for any help on this issue.
Multiple rs-232 barcode readers on PLC
Becky posted a topic in Computer Help and NetworkingHello, I need to connect multiple barcode readers (SICK CLP510) to a PLC (FX3GE-40M) for a university project. I need a minimum of 3 bar code readers, but only have one operational, connected via an additional modul for the use of rs-232. The only other port I can use is a miniDin 8, which is a build-in rs-422 port. Because this is a university project, it needs to be as cost efficient as posible. All the readers are CLP510 (pin-out attached bellow) Thanks Becky Pin_out___wire_colour___signal_comparison_CLP100_CLP510_CLV60x.pdf
WRITE MULTIPLE REGISTER MODBUS
riandanualdy posted a topic in CX-ProgrammerHallo my name is Danu, i have a CP1E wirh CP1W-CIF11 and connect to modbus RTU device, i have done with write single coil, write single register, read single register and read multiple register. But i try to write multiple register, the indicator of CP1W-CIF11 is off and if i check d memory its no data. I attached my cx programmer. Can you help me create write multiple register in cx programmer? Thank you AD4402-modbus edit edit edit edit edit.cxp
PV+ 2711P-RDT15C can't communicate to 2 CLX processors
Davis Colangelo posted a topic in Allen Bradley / Rockwell Automationdetails: panelview (2711P-RDT15C) connected to "switch A" (ntron p/n: F-716TX) "processor A " (1756-L62) is connected to "switch A" "processor B" (1756-L73S) is connected to "switch B" (ntron p/n: F-716TX) "switch B" is connected to "switch A" I'm trying to use a single panelview to communicate to 2 separate PLC processors (separate chassis). When I go to add the shortcut in factory talk I find the "processor B". When I connect my laptop to "switch A" I can see every thing in RSlinxs. Any one experience this issue or know how to make this setup work? Maybe there's a switch setting that is not allowing RSlinxs enterprise in the PV to see both processors?
Multiple encoders to CP1L-60DT-A
BR posted a topic in CX-ProgrammerI need to add 3 encoders to my project. Currently my PLC Inputs are full. I am using high speed counters 0.00 and 0.001 to monitor a motor RPM with an encoder. I now wish to add 3 encoders to monitor position of (3) other linear axis controlled by stand alone (Zeta 6104) stepper drives. I have 3 open outputs on this PLC but all inputs are used. What are my hardware options to add additional encoders to allow me to track and correct the 3 additional axis. My first thought was to add another CP1L and use PLC1 0.00, 001 for ENC1, PLC1 0.002, 0.003 for ENC2, PLC2 0.00, 001 for ENC3, PLC2 0.002, 0.003 for ENC4. I thought this would allow me to use additional I/O from the second PLC but I am not sure if this is even possible. Is it possible to connect 2 PLCs this way? I will need additional I/O to send to these stepper drives to make the corrections. Do I need to add an expansion unit to the existing PLC and 2 additional high speed counter modules? The encoders are all Omron E6C2-CWZ6C. I would appreciate any advise on options to add these encoders and help point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance to any help.
PV800 HMI multiple position switch
willings posted a topic in HMI & SCADAHi all I am setting up a batch tank system, I have 1 pump which can pump to six different tanks(via pneumatic actuated valves). This is my first go with a HMI, usually I would use a multiple position switch. Is it possible to make a six position selector switch with a HMI? I am using a AB Panel-View 800, has anyone done this before? Any help would be appreciated.
Joint Alarm Management from Multiple CX-Supervisor Runtimes
Shah G posted a topic in CX-SupervisorHi, Is there any setup to manage alarms in one PLC from multiple CX-Supervisor runtimes running on different computers? If I get an alarm, it shows up on both runtimes. If I acknowledge from one runtime, I also want it to be gone from the list in the other runtimes.
Connect to QJ71E71 from 2 or more PCs
chelebi_yn posted a topic in MitsubishiHi everyone. I'm new at Mitsubishi Q series. I can make a connection between PC and PLC through ethernet and read/write from/to registers. When I try to connect second PC to PLC I can't do it and get error. How can I set Network parameters of QJ71E71 module to communicate multiple PCs to PLC? Thanks.
Addition of more than 2 values
Meghann_B posted a topic in Allen Bradley / Rockwell AutomationI'm new to the Allen Bradley software and I'm trying to add 3 values together. I have found the addition block but it only allows for 2 values. Is there a way to extend the block or do I need to use the block twice? Thanks for your help
FactoryTalk ME Parameters
Shiner posted a topic in Allen Bradley / Rockwell AutomationHello all, we have many large projects with multiple screens and are using popups quite frequently. As a result, our parameter file list becomes quite long. I have excel sheets to import my alarm table, and my local HMI tags, but have found no simple way to create/import multiple parameter files. Has anyone found a way? AB tells me that I can use Notepad to create 1 file at a time and import it that way....where is the time savings in that? As an example, I will probably end up with well over 450 parameter files by the end of this project.....hand entering each one....carpal tunnel syndrome here I come Thank you PS..if anyone wants the alarm table import tool msg me.
