  1. 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?

  4. Axis Attribute Error

    Hello All, First time working with PLC. Get the hang of it from stuff I researched. Having an issue with an axis setup for a servo motor.  When I try to do an auto tune it gives me an error that axis is not configured.  Source: Config Fault    Condition: MotorDeviceCode- INvalid attribute      ACtion: Immediate Stop Fault Entry: Type 8, code 9 subcode: 1314 stopaction: 4 Statechange: 3   I was wondering what am I doing wrong? Any leads or source information I can use to solve this. 
  5. NB screen freezing

    Hi all has anyone ever come across a NB series screen freezing when a screen change is attempted? i have a NB7W which when told to change to screen 58 or 59 via a function button or via a PLC instruction it freezes the HMI and it needs to be restarted. have i hit some screen limit or something? they only thing i can really think of it has too many graphics, it contains 6 bitmap images and about 12 graphic buttons/lamps
  6. is there a way of stacking screens in NB designer? ive asked question similar in the cx programmer forum but it might be better asked here. for instance if i have a program that displays an error screen when lets say the motor is overloaded but then the air pressure is also  cut off so that screen then pops up, we currently have a system that states when there are no errors to display the main screen with a DIFU command. however this system doesnt work very well if multiple problems occur it will only display the most recent one and when that is fixed the screen will not change. is there a way to make screens "overlap" and be able to close them individually or just any methods you have used that might be better at controlling the screen for this sort of application? thanks anyone who can help
  7. Hi guys, I installed new MachineExpert v1.2 and Vijeo 6.2.9 on Win10 machine. When connecting simulation PLC to Vijeo to test my application everything is good. I go to PLC and check the nodename (see the pic attached) which I put in my Vijeo application and everything works. Issue is, because of my hard drive capacity I am forced to work via VM (but this is my preffered way also because of number of PLC softwares used). When I installed from the same installer (everything same as my local Win10) on Win7 VM when I run simulation I get empty space where the PC simulator should be visible which nodename I should type in Vijeo. Also I noticed when going to gateway management console in VM the process is active, same parameters as in host machine. Turning off the gateway on the VM turns it off as well on the host. Is there a known problem of connecting to simulator on VM? Or win10? Unfortunately I don't have Win10 VM to try right now.. Anyone can help? Much appreciated!
  8. Hi all. I would like to get in contact with whoever can help me in my particular problem. I hold an HNC level in robot and plc programming but for different reasons I'm still trying to get on the industry but is being a hard task. It's been a while that I'm trying to get into some companies by agencies and they are always asking for something that I can't provide like two years experience. Basically I'm writing here trying to find someone that can help me in anyway. Currently I live in Shrewsbury and it will be complicated to get relocated but nothing is impossible if things are interesting for both sides. Thanks to all even for read it and just consider the possibility to help me on any way.

  10. Hello, can you help me with the following issue: I want to transfer the program/data from an old E1043 HMI to a new one. Tried with HMI Tools File transfer, the connection is established but after initialization and loading I am getting an "Error:Read directory failed." Connection made by serial cable-serial cable / serial cable-USB, result is the same in both cases. Is there something to check in order to make the transfer? Can I use E-designer for this purpose, and, if yes, how? Any suggestion could be helpful. Thanks in advance!

  12. CX Designer Generic Popup Faceplate

    I was wondering if anybody out there has ever made a generic popup to deal with multiple devices, similar to what you can do with factory talk and wonderware. I want to be able to index addresses from the PLC to the PT memory but it doesn't look like you are able to do this. Is there anybody out there that has come across this same problem?

  18. GT DESIGNER 3 - "SCREEN ERROR"

    Hey guys, I am trying to fix a problem with a machine for plastic jerrycans production, that i bought in the end of 2017 from a spanish company. That company refuses to help and assist us so i had to search for other solutions.  In short: i need to change a fixed value on the SCADA program of the machine to a variable value and i want to change it on the terminal i have installed on the machine (GOT 1000). The problem is dat whatever i change on the gt designer 3 file (if i move a button or a lamp 1mm to the side or change a letter) and then write it to GOT, when i try to open the screen where i did the modifications i get a white screen saying "screen error". Only replacing the new file for the original one i can continue to use my GOT 1000 normaly. I also wanted to translate some of the words because most of my employes dont know how to speak spanish and have some dificulty using the terminal correctly... I am corrently using 1.37P version of GT Designer 3 but the original file dat came already installed on the GOT was 1.165X.

  21. I have a NB7W HMI connected to a CPIH over RS232. I'm connected to the HMI over USB and when I try to download my project, it starts the downloading GUI process and fails at a random time and shows a popup that says "data reading error". The HMI is locked up at this point and needs to be restarted. This is a fresh HMI and has not previously had a program on it. I created a blank project to make sure I didn't do anything weird in my program, but got the same result when I tried to download. Has anyone experienced something like this before? Its made it as far as 50%, and has also failed almost immediately.   Thanks in advance. 
  22. Cognex VC5 Vision Controller

    I'm looking for some help in regards to programming an Omron PLC (CX-Programmer) to control a Cognex VC5 Vision controller to trigger CIC5000 cameras. I have the Ethernet/IP mapping and I am able to send user data to the VC5 controller at this point. I believe there a steps I'm missing within the Cognex Designer program to send notifications to the PLC but I'm not sure where to start. Any help in pointing me in the right direction is much appreciated.
  23. Insert existing attachment A lot of automation cells we get done are made outside of shop so we don't typically have any current acd files for the plc. I am trying to make changes to the program but uploading seems to be giving me some problems. The initial upload seems to work fine I can select a file to save to and I begin to see the file being upload, the problem comes after about two minutes near the end of the upload. Attached is the error I see after the upload stops. Has anyone seen this problem before and know of a solution? Any help would be appreciated. Current controller Studio 5000 Logix Designer 28.03.00 1756-L71S
