  3. PanelView 800 Recipe Management

    Hello guys, I'm a new guy with Panel View 800 and I have few questions from beginning. I have an application 2x PV800 4" and 1x CompactLogix L24ER.This application require recipe management and I've found that PV800 has weird-different representation of recipe management. I can't figure out how to add additional recipe to the recipe list. Usually I can add new blank recipe without any extra steps, but it's not "add recipe" buttons. I'm looking an answer for next questions: - how to add new blank recipe my template that I made ( picture - https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jcQvbBL0MfSuwHxMsV3ZVz1oPiTY0u3G/view?usp=sharing) - how to get currently loaded recipe name? I have assigned status tag, but it always shows me a number. I didn't find any sort of system tags with selected recipe. - I have installed CCW software v.12. It allows me to create a project with PV800 FW 5.011, but I got a panel with default FW 5.013. How can I add new firmware version into my CCW software? I found AB video about PV800 and recipe (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewgBh4ldXXU) but it useless without an example file.   Thank you in advance! Regards, Scotty
  4. I'm having trouble with some Powerflex 525 drives. Right now what I need to do is run them manually from the keypad to test conveyor belts.  Is there a way to do this and if so how?   Thanks in advance.
  5. Dear All, I want to communicate Rockwell 1719 EX I/O with 1756-L62A CPU using 1756-EN2TR over Ethernet. Please help me whether it is possible or not? Thanks
  6. Dear Mr. PLC forum members, I am brand new to the world of PLC’s and I am looking for advice on PLC platform selection for a device prototype. The proposed PLC is for a “smart” hydroponic system. Please see system I/O and other parameters below. Parameter 1: Price - I am self-funding this so price of PLC and software is important. Happy to spend ~$2000 for PLC; I/O cards and related hardware. Total prototype cost is around $15,000 including PLC. Parameter 2: Availability & Support in Australia. Parameter 3:Newbie Friendly: I intend to code the PLC myself and have never coded a thing in my life before.  Parameter 4:Discrete Outputs: 11; Discrete Inputs: 0; Analog Outputs: 2-3; Analog Inputs: 9  Parameter 5: Capability to extend to IOT for remote access control and monitoring (via cellular or wifi router)   As you can see, this is a relatively simple automation project. All my research seems to point to Automation Direct’s BRX PLC but I just wanted to get some suggestions and feedback before purchasing. Anything else that might suit my needs? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Bruce   
  7. CJ1M+ETN21 Modbus TCP

    Hello. I'm trying to use Omron ETN21 as master for ModbusTCP protocol. I can communicate with 1 SLAVE UNIT (standard modbusTCP slave) using FB MTCP_ETN_Client.zip  from https://www.myomron.com/index.php?action=kb&article=1245. It works perfectly. But I have three SLAVE UNITS to communicate to. I'm trying to do this using [524]Modbus_TCP_FB.zip sample. I have copied SECTION1 to SECTION2 and changed IP number and SOCKET number. But this doesn't work. I would realy appriciate a working sample where OMRON PLC is MASTER for THREE (or more) SLAVES. I'm attaching code file... Thanks. Best regards, Andrej.

  8. Hello out there   I've searched for quite some time but unable to find any information helping me through this. I got a Omron PLC NX1P2 where im supposed to setup modbus communication over TCP/IP but so far i've only been able to find information regarding RTU setup. But seen forums mention its possible to setup via TCP/IP Anybody who can help. A program sample would be helpfull aswell. Im a trainee as automationengineer and this is my first encounter with Omron PLC and Modbus so quite new to the field.   kind regards Ivan T.
  9. I am currently trying to connect my OMRON NX1P2 1040DT1 (Using CIF-105) to my Unitronics V570 PLC, With my OMRON PLC as Master. It seems as if Unitonics Rs485 only wants a six-wire connection type but my OMRON PLC wants a 2-wire or 4-wire connection, Wondering if anyone has a solution to my problem and can assist me.  
  10. Hello, I'm trying to connect a CJ1M-ETN21 as slave Modbus TCP with a Modbus/Dali Gateway. I download from Omron website some FB with ones should be possible.   https://www.myomron.com/index.php?action=kb&article=1245 The FB only can be used with the direction unit 0, but we can change some directions inside the FB and can be adjusted to other units. In the download I found this FB: MTCP_ETN_Connect, MTCP_ETN_Fn01, MTCP_ETN_Fn02, MTCP_ETN_Fn03 .... Supposed with connect we can establish the connection with the master, but the FB never make nothing. Should I make some special configurations to use this FB? I appreciate any help. Thanks

  16. I'm trying to communicate with INVT PLC and DGM8002(grain moisture analyzer) via mobus RTU.   Can anyone explain about these Modbus address ? Please kindly see in picture . example working mode address K0 (0-stop ,1-manual,  2-Auto) Actual Moisture Address K6 What is meaning of K0,K1,K3,K6.  https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-mGzpEvw4UlewWhR9k3wOd1mO-uhsklL/view?usp=drivesdk Is that K0= 0000 K2 = 2000. K3=3000 ? Any suggestion please. I'm really appreciated your comments.❤️  
  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?

  22. Hi all,  I want to ask some questions regarding Ethernet Communication with FX3U PLC series. I have 2 PLCs of FX3U series (FX3U-48M and FX3U-64M) and I want to monitor its data (input and output) using ethernet communication in real time. My questions are: 1. Does FX3U PLC have ethernet port so I can connect it directly to my Laptop/PC? 2. If no, do I need to use FX3U-ENET-ADP and can it be used for 2 PLC or only 1? 3. What software do I need to use to configure the communication between PLC and FX3U-ENET-ADP? 4. Does this configuration change the existing PLC program? 5. Can i transmit the data wireless-ly using some kind of ethernet to wifi adapter and what additional hardware do i need for that?  
  23. I want to take data from an AllenBradley SLC 505, and send it to an Omron NX102-9000. Specifically F8: 46 from my SLC 505, which is a temperature sensor. Both PLCs are on the same Ethernet network, each with its own IP address. Have you tried it?
  24. Create TCP/UDP Socket

    I'm trying to send an int over TCP using a MSG Socket,  Compactlogix ==> Arduino Ethernet Shield I have set up TCP communication between two Arduino Uno's using Ethernet shield. I've set up the one as a server, the other as a client. server IP: 192.168.1.21 port 23. If the client is connected it reads incoming data as a byte or an array of bytes. The data between the two has been verified to work. I'm now trying to transition the communications between a compact logix-L32E. I'm looking to send a byte (or int being as there's no byte data type) from the Compactlogix to the Arduino using TCP. To my understanding I need to use a socket create, open, read/write, close. The manual to do this is vague as a step by step procedure. Does anyone have an example code for socket programming? I can open rs500, rs5000, and studio 5000 programs. If I can open a file to use as a reference I can translate it on my own. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. 
  25. Pneumatic Air

    Short backstory: We have a machine programmed with AB that has several banks of air solenoids.  This is an older machine so the solenoid banks are of the older variety.  On each bank there is a pressure switch that is outputted into a Allen Bradley 1734 Safety RIO module.  We are adding new modules to this machine after about 10 years and the Mec Eng. chose Festo CPX banks, but they did not put pressure switches on them. Question: Is it a requirement (OSHA, OMAC, ISO...etc. any of them really) to have a pressure switch for air module?  Or are they used to just make the machine smarter?  The big concern that I have is that the customer will notice that these new CPX's don't have pressure switches to monitor the status of the air like every other bank on the machine, then questions will be asked...yatta yatta...
