  1. Hello everybody, I've been searching for a solution for this problem, but haven't found it yet. When the user is done with a task, a certain bit turns ON. Then a poppup should popup. I tried using alarms, but that won't work, because I have to initialize an alarm display on every window I've made.  Can somebody help me?  Thanks,  
  2. Hi:         I am planning to use NX with Encoder Card  couple with Omron Rotary Encoder for measuring product length. ( GX-EC0211 /EC0241) or may be (NX-EC0112, I read there is proble with this card , here https://forums.mrplc.com/index.php?/topic/34896-problem-pulse-reading-with-fast-counter-card-in-nx2/ ), but whatever it is I need to know is there any specific Instruction in Sysmac Studio that is tailored for Fast Counter or Encoder (something Like PRV in CX Programmer or special function in CJ-CT021 where start/stop counter and changeable preset counter are available).  The Length measurement is straight forward and is only a small part of the overall program.  Basically is Start ---> measure to length----> Cut --->Repeat again.  I read through the Instruction Reference Manual and I am unable to find one.   Anyone have any idea or any sample program (Sysmac Studio only ) that I can refer to ?    Thanks     
  3. Hi there,  I am considerably new with setting up E/IP on OMRON's NX1P2 PLC. I have been trying to connect a Keyence IV-G to my PLC with E/IP connection (because there's no analog I/O available) and struggling with getting a connection going between PLC and camera. I connect these two through an unmanaged network switch, which I believe doesn't need any further configuration. I have set tags on Built-in E/IP inside SYSMAC Studio, and when I monitor them it says "normally resolved". Unfortunately, it still has red dot which means connection is cannot be established. The error I'm getting is "Tag data link connection timeout". Maybe built-in E/Ip just doesnt work for this case? I have yet to try getting connected with Network Configurator, but have the feeling that it will just accomplish the same thing that I did with Built-in E/IP inside Sysmac Studio.
  4. Varying Versions

    I have an NS5-SQ01-V2 that i pulled a program from. I am reloading the same program back onto the PT but i keep getting an error code that the "Program is V1, PT is V2. Continue Transfer?" I know this means that the versions obviously differ but this is the first time ive come across this. Will it do any harm to anything to continue with the transfer and see how the machine reacts? 
  5. Hello Guys, I would like to know if someone in here has made a VB script, there can delete files from the SD card in HMI? the reason why I ask, is I have some data logging on the HMI for our customer, but I would like the data logging to go in a loop so if the  SD-card is full, it will delete the oldest file instead of stop data logging. who is there somebody there can show me an example on a VB for this :)?
  6. Error Compiled

    Sir, i can't compile my file that i have made. It say " The compiled file is not found. Please compile the title first". So, because of that i can't do offline simulator on NB Designer
  7. Good day everyone, I recently got NB HMI and program it together with my NX1P2 PLC. I got 2 questions I would like to ask. What I'm trying to achieve is to lock all the button after I start my system or during the pop up screen for confirmation. I tried different methods and it doesn't work. Currently I'm using a direct window Pop-Up screen to cover all the button behind it, but I noticed if I drag the pop up screen, it'll move together. So I wonder, is there any correct methods of doing it? Also, the function key for change screen, I use it for Pop up screen but why it only spawn on the top left of the screen instead of the center? Thanks in advance guys!
  8. Hi  I want to use in sysmac the number of the active page in nb designer. for example if I am in page number 5, the program in sysmac recovers in a variable the value 5 THANKS
  9. Hello everybody, I continued my project this morning and my HMI gives the 'PLC No response 00-02-3" error... I haven't changed anything since last Friday, so in theory it should work. I used this tutorial a few weeks ago and that worked. I also tried so use some old programs which used to work, but they don't work now...  HMI IP: 192.168.250.1 (the addresses from the tutorial) PLC IP: 192.168.250.2 (the addresses from the tutorial)   Does anyone know what could be the problem? I already tried using another switch, but that didn't work either. EDIT: I just saw that I posted this in the wrong subforum, excuse me EDIT2: I found the solution. I cleared the data memory before... So what I did was transfering the settings to the PLC, then completely power off the PLC and then power it on again. That worked for me! Thanks, Olivier
  10. setting date cp1l

    Hi all im currently using the DATE instruction to set the PLC's date and time via the HMI which is an NB7W which i have working but i am currently setting each byte of the words being used in DATE by using numerical inputs in NB designer and entering integer and decimal to set these bits in DATE and its a bit ugly to say the least. is there a way on nb designer to only modify bytes or am i going to have to used full words on nb designer and use MOVD in cx programmer to assign them to their correct byte CURRENT SETUP always on DATE using d50=d53  
  11. Keypad in GT Designer

    I need a key pad which can be used for numeric input, can anyone provide any sample program.   Thank you.
  12. ROTARY AXIS POSITION ERROR

    Our C axis which is a rotary axis doesn't perform commanded postion, for eg if we give command of 360 deg, then it will only rotate 359 deg and for next time it will rotate 358 and so on for every rotation. i.e for every rotation its complete degree is reduced by 1 deg.  And system doesnt show any error.  By providing command of 360 deg, if we rotate or axis for 15 times then the last position at which it will stop will he 345 deg.    Please share valuable inputs to resolve that problem.
  13. Hi there! I've been working with NB HMIs with good result. But today I loaded a project to a NB7-TW01B and it feels slow, both offline and online. Switching screens and reading/writing take around 1sec or more. It first had some bmp images created with .bmp and .png files, so I tried using vector graphics instead, but didn't get any better. I don't have another NB to try it right now so I'd like to ask you if you've been in this same situation before or what could be causing this. PLC is CP1L and communication it's via Ethernet. Both devices are actually pretty close (cable is less than 3m) and the previous HMI (Pro-face GP) felt a lot faster. Thanks in advance!
  14. My Compact Logix PLC is connected to my computer by USB. When I try to create a new view designer file, I can not connect my view designer with my controller. "OK" button of the HMI to controller path remains INACTIVE. Please see the attached.  How can i solve this issue?
  15. Hello, I am trying to have single press and double press etc. functionality in my PLC program where for example, single press will turn on the motor whereas double press will turn on the motor for 5 seconds. Is it possible to achieve using ladder logic in sysmac studio, if yes, how? Thank you in advance.
  16. String shift register

    Hello all thanks to bits n bytes's date and time to string converter here https://forums.mrplc.com/index.php?/topic/31786-write-plc-time-as-text-to-memory-card/#comment-149418 i have made a nice string output function block for the PLC date and time that i will attach. I'm now wandering how to shift this into a memory card as well as display it on a NB screen. for the NB screen i think i can just used a text box to display the code using 8 words, i sadly dont have a CJ2M plc with me at the moment so i cannot test. for the memory card i have not used these at all yet, is there a special shift register for strings? i cant seem to find it. i will be using this simply for a checklist on the HMI where an operator goes through the list of tasks to perform and ticks them off on the HMI which then logs the time and date they were completed at. do i need to create a shift register using MOV$ with a @destination and increase the count of the destination witch each input? Thanks in advance Date_and_time_string_convert.cxf
  17. This is my first post so let me know if there is anything wrong with my post. I am learning Studio 5000 right now for an internship and created a simple project involving a pushbutton and some LEDs. Now I am trying to create an HMI for it in View Designer. My problem now is that I cannot establish a connection to the project because I do not have a physical HMI connected to my plc (Logix 5380). I can't find any way to emulate an HMI module so that I can get it to run. When I emulate my HMI project it tells me "Unable to reach controller TEST" where test is the name of my plc program. I added a module that matched the model in my HMI program (panelview 5510 2715p-t7wd) which I arbitrarily picked at random. But when I go into references and try to add HMI to Controller Path it does not show up (I'm assuming it's because it is faulting in the plc program since it doesn't actually exist). Is there not a way to emulate an HMI or add a virtual HMI to my studio 5000 program that I could connect to from View Designer?
  18. HI everyone i was wondering if i could connect a cp1l-el to 2 different NB screens running 2 different programs. we have a main line HMI which displays the health of the entire line with its own cj2m plc, we also have a machine which is part of the line that has its own plc(CP1l-EL) and HMI. is it possible for me to include the cp1l in the main lines HMI so that it can display the status of that machine? or will it cause issues because it already has a program attached to it. i dont know exactly how the NB program works does it just read the bits of data it needs to or is it constantly looking at the whole plc data list?
  19. hello   I want to control my servomotor in manual mode from an ethercat network. Where I can find the JOG FWD and REV information in the frames exchanged between R88d-1S servo and sysmac studio
  20. OMRON SYSMAC STUDIO

    In omron Sysmac Under configuration tab --- axis setting----- Operation Setting  Under Monitor Heading there is a term " In-Position Range" and " Zero Position Range " what does these term means and what happen if we increase or decrease value under these term.  Image was not attached, as it was failed due to some reason 
  21. Hello, can we do the simulation between sysmac and nb designer thanks
  22. I have one project on which the offline test works nicely. However if I "Save as" and give it another name, the offline test stops working. I click on offline test, the loading hourglass appears for a few seconds, then nothing happens... Does anyone know why, and/or how to get offline test working again? I am running NB Designer version 1.3. I always compile before trying the offline test.
  23. Good Morning I am a beginner in PLC programming using the Sysmac Studio software and please help me if you can  I'm trying to make an omron NX1P2 PLC read some message via Socket UDP to my PC through the Socket Test program, do you have or know any program with an example application in ladder? thank you
  24. DWord to Data Types

    Hello everyone, In Siemens and Rockwell I am used to transferring a double word to a tag that has a UDT data type of 32 bools. Which the binary bits (31..0) of the double word would align with the bits in a UDT data type of bool. If it was in a function block in Siemens I would call the double word address and move it to Area Register Address and transfer data to a tag of udt data type internal of the function block or could call a Move Block as well which will byte swap the bits but can be fixed with an STL call instruction (CAW). Since I am new to Sysmac Studio, how would I be able to do this? Looking at every Data Movement and Data Type Conversion functions all want a form of an array or elementary type, some wanting source and destination to be the same type. Any ideas?
  25. Hello,  Sorry I'm newbie with omron plc programming. I'm wondering how can i simulate plc program on sysmac studio with Hmi on Nb designer without hardware. because I want testing my program and my plc and hmi connection before buying hardware. Thanks in advance !
