  1. I am setting up a vision inspection station which will require me to have 3 independent jobs within the camera. I am using 2 Cognex 9912, a Cognex 2000, and a S71200 PLC. Cognex has sent me a copy of the job call FB, but it is giving me fits. There are several tags referencing a data base called Insight1_Inputs, when I try to create a data base with this name it will not allow me. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can upload pictures if needed. thanks in advance 
  2. Siemens S5-95U PLC and Battery Concern

    Hi All, We have a hydraulic press that is being controlled by Siemens S5-95U PLC . Lately the S5-95U has been randomly stopping during operation thus causing the hydraulic press to stop running. However the S5-95U instantly returns to RUN status after stopping. This is the first time it has happened after a decade of service. Prior to the random stops issue, around January 2021 the S5-95U completely stopped and the program in the RAM was erased so we had to replace the PLC battery and restore the program with our backup. Strangely, the PLC battery we replaced still had 3.4VDC upon checking. What's even more baffling is that even after we replaced the PLC battery with a new one,  Battery LED is still yellow although the program is still retained in the RAM. In summary, we have two concerns: 1. S5-95U randomly stops and resumes during operation ever since we were forced to replace the PLC battery and restore the program. 2. PLC battery has been replaced but the Battery LED is still yellow but the program is still retained in the RAM.   I have a suspicion that the two concerns I mentioned above are somehow connected but I lack the technical expertise to diagnose. I'm hoping someone can help me figure out our issue. Worst case, I think our S5-95U needs to be replaced.   Thanks,  
  3. Hello Everyone,   Make - OMRON HMI Model - NB7W-TW01B Software - NB Designer   Suppose I have more than one number input display on a screen of HMI. When I touch and enter the data in any one of them and press enter, the keyboard not closing automatically. in sted of auto close, the cursor moves to the next number input display to enter the data. How to auto-close the keyboard after entering the data in any number input display.
  4. MPI Connection problem

    Hi there. Recently I've experienced problems when connecting to a S7-300 PLC via MPI/PROFIBUS. I use a PG with CP5711 processor. The thing is that I'm able to connect when I plug the 6ES7901-0BF00-0AA0 cable (male to male) directly to the PLC connector, but when I try to do connect to a PLC that has any device connected to the DP port (let´s say an inverter or HMI) I get 33:17075 error. PG/PC Interface it's correct, in fact another PG with the same configuration is able to connect through the already connected DP device's cable. Station number and transmission rate is all correct.  So I tried the Simatic NET Diagnostics Test and I got error 0x0313 and since the mentioned parameters are correct I refered to this link:  How do Diagnostics and Remedy work in STEP 7 when an online connection with the CP... - ID: 11492532 - Industry Support Siemens Where they say the following:    I've searched for this readme file but can't find it, and there are no useful results when looking for it on internet.  Why am I able to connect directly to the PLC but not when another device is connected and I have to use the female connector of the DP connector itself? Should I try to reinstall CP5711 drivers? According to Windows, I got the last drivers for the CP.    Thanks in advance and I hope you can help me!
  5. Hi Experts, I would like to know is there any possibility to make a switch that can make exponential increment to a data. i know how to make a switch to increment data in fixed intervals with a switch but im trying to make a switch when you press it continuesly it should increase the gains rapidly over time. is this possible and if yes can someone explain me how? im attaching a sample image how i want to make two buttons to increase and decrease a data. thank you in advance guys. kind regards, sathu.

  7. Hello all I am trying to figure out if its possible to save a screenshot of every screen on a HMI to usb at the same time, so i have currently created a button on a screen that saves the screenshot to external memory, is it possible to make it save a screenshot for every screen instead of just one? maybe i would have to create a kind of function on the plc that cycles through the pages and then takes a screenshot of each? any help would be appreciated currently using a NB7W and a CJ2 cpu 31 although it would be nice for this to work with everything
  8. Help Logo!8 to HMI Alarms

    I have an existing LOGO!8 and im adding a HMI (SImatic HMI KTP400). i want to bring up an alarm based on the status of a Flag in the PLC. i can see that i cannot address an alarm to a Bool Tag. so my question is how to i get it to work. Example. i have LOGO flag 1 (M0.0) and Flag 2 (M0.1) what to i need to do to make them into a WORD for the alarms.   Cheers
  9. Hi there! I'm trying to communicate HMIS5T HMI with a Modicon Micro TSX3722001 PLC. The communication is OK, but whenever I try to enter some data into a numeric display I get an error that says "Method or function in Communications System unsupported" and data won't change on PLC's Animation Table. Also, if I modify a variable's value in PL7 Pro, the value in the HMI numeric display won't change properly. It displays the last digit of the binary format of the number (let's say I write a "3" on PL7 Pro, then I get a "1" on the numeric display, despite all data types being UINT, and all ranges are OK. Then if I write any number which binary version ends in 0, I get that 0 on the numeric display, nothing else. Again, all data types and ranges are OK). Changing variables' source on Vijeo Designer to Internal doesn't seem to work. So I'm wondering what else must I do in order to send and receive data from/to HMI and PLC?    Thanks in advance and I hope you can help me! Update: Got this solved. For anyone wondering, Vijeo Designer 6.2 SP8 it's kinda buggy with Unitelway communication. There's a hotfix that solves this problem, provided free by Schneider.

  11. NB-designer V1000

    Hello. Can someone help with an example program in the nb-designer application for communication with drive v1000 yaskawa after modbus RTU (rs422). It was very important to me that the reference speeds were shown in this example (d1-01; d1-03) could also be acc - dec (c1-01; c1-02) Of course, I have the NB7W panel and the multi drive v1000 yaskawa
  12. Hello there,   I am using Schneider HMI for the past few years, it's very versatile and easy to design graphics.   Now i started using OMRON HMIs and found that is weird to draw graphics in Omron NB-Designer.   I have Example, Look at the attached screenshot of both software, in the case of Schneider if I stretch a button or any object it will remain in the same good shape. but in the case of Omron, if you stretch any object it doesn't remain in the original shape. (check the attached images.)   Please suggest Ideas about designing a good Omron Hmi, Sample backup is always welcome. The image link is below, I am not able to upload it here. https://we.tl/t-HV9IOnyfAP  
  13. Hi guys, Has anyone ever implemented a Siemens S7 RFID tag reader into a Mitsubishi PLC system? Is this something that is fairly supported to be able to achieve? Or a right pain to set up?
  14. 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!
  15. Hi, I am new using SIEMENS. I am programming a KTP 400 Comfort. linked to a S7-1200. I would like to ask you how to do a solution I normally used in OMRON. There, I use an "indirect label" to index the line of a TXT file I want to show in a label of a button or indicator. This is similar to the "list of text" in TIA Portal. However, in OMRON I found the way to updated automatically the TXT file in the HMI using a computer but not using the software of OMRON. So, I would like to know how to do something similar using this SIEMENS HMI. I would like to show a label whose text changes according to the value of an index. However I would like to be able to change the file where the index points (TXT, CSV, etc) but not using TIA Portal. I would program a software to send the updated file automatically under FTP, or under the protocol you suggest me. Thank you very much.
  16. 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!
  17. 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,

  20. 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? 
  21. Siemens WinCC 7.0 SP3 SCADA Value Freezing

    Dear All, We are using Siemens WinCC 7.0 SP3 SCADA software. We are using two Redundant SCADA Computers that are communicating with PLC (CP-343 module) via Ethernet. One Ethernet cable from each PC is connected to Cisco Ethernet Switch and one Ethernet cable from the Cisco Switch is connected with CP-343 Siemens Ethernet Module.  The problem is after every 75 hours one PC value become still (Freeze).Only One system values freeze at a time. If i restart the system the problem is resolved. Please help to resolve this problem. Thanks

    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
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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
