  1. Hello! So I have this issue with me by this week. I have an NJ with unit version 1.00. I had not did any download/upload on this unit. Due to the need of showing using Password capability on Function Blocks, I need to upgrade the unit firmware version, so I changed it to 1.10. After that I tried to program a simple two Sections program. I left the CPU for a week, then when I get back to it, I upload the program from the CPU. And the upload was SUCCESSFUL! No errors are shown. However all of the Rungs inside each Sections contains nothing. Even though the two Sections that I made before are still present. The program itself is still working though. If I open the previously saved project, going online and do variable controlling, I'm still able to do so. Has anybody experienced this before? Any suggestions / solutions? Thank you...
  2. Hello everyone, I'm having some trouble to setup the GSM configuration so I can receive alarms on my cell phone I'm using Schneider CPU Modicon M340 in association with a communication RTU NOR0200H and a Schneider Modem SR02 MOD02 this is the first time that I work on this kind of project, would you please help me I'm kind of blocked and I need a solution asap thank you for your time
  3. Hi, I'm wanting to know from anyone using Citect 7.X and above, about how your systems are set up when using a primary/secondary redundant server setup. With the advice from some consultants I've changed from a couple of stand alone units to a redundant server setup and multiple clients plant wide. There's about 8 PLCs currently with more coming. However it was recommended to split the IO server of Citect over the two physical servers, so that 1 physical server is the Primary IO server for 4 PLCs and secondary server for the other 4, then the other physical server has the same setup just opposite Primary/Secondary setup for the devices of the first physical server. I get that it splits the work load, but our engineering team is updating the servers multiple times a day most days and we will be for at least the next year, I'm finding that this system isn't very friendly constantly shutting down and restarting etc interrupting trending also, and want to switch from this split IO Server setup, to just one server that's primary, one server that's secondary. My Question, is it fine for one physical server to be primary and for how many PLC's? Server is a 6 Core Intel 2011 socket CPU (Not sure on exact specs at this stage). System INFO TAG count is about 5000, and Manufacturing is a slow process so no need for split second updates on anything. about 500 Trends polling every 1 second. Cheers.
  4. connecting ixt4a to a cj1m/cp1l/ns network

    hi everybody i have a network with 2 pieces cj1m and 2 pieces cp1l communicating with a ns15 monitor. everything is fine. i need to connect an ixt4a monitor in that network. my question is : do i have to make new routing tables or it is not neccessary? my routing table for cj1m and cp1l cpus are attached. if then i have to make new routing table so that the cj1m will be able to communicate ixt4a monitor, how am i going to do it for both monitors? Any help will be mostly valuable and appreciated. thanks
  5. Hello! I saw there were some people on this forum who works with theese old PLC:s so i try here: Run onto this ancient Omron PLC - C20-CPU84E. Someone has not maintaned the battery enough.. and someone has not upgraded the machine. Stupidity. Now they want it running in three days. About 100+ I/O so its interesting to kick the old horse once more. I took the CPU off-site for investigation. I do not have the programming console etc but I am able to hire equipment from Omron if needed. PLC is said to have PROM. CPU is set to RAM ( dip-switches ). "PROM" Circuit has no programming window. It does not look like Omron EPROM images found on google. PROM chip has marking "Omron BP0J". * Application does not seem to need timers. Battry dead. LEDs: POWER ON RUN OFF ALARM OFF ERROR ON For testing - I charged the battery to 3.3+ V ( later resoldered the connector to a fresh CJ1W-BAT01, also gives 3.3V ) LEDs: POWER OFF RUN ON ALARM OFF ERROR ON Manual says it wants the battery alarm reset using programming terminal. Question: Run is lit: does it actually run? Or is it - it tried to run?. I tried manipulating some inputs and suspect the later. If it run - I could travel on-site and see how the machine behaves. If not - i have to get theprogramming terminal first. Thank you for any input.
  6. I have a CP1L by Omron and a barcode reader by Honerwell. I want to activate the serial port 1, to connect it with the reader. The reader shoul read one of the 2 main barcodes. If the reader get the barcode 1, then it should read 3 times the barcode A and activate an output; but if it read the barcode 2, it should read 3 times the barcode B, and also activate an output. I want made my programm in ladder programation, How I can activate the serial port 1? How I set the the serial port 1 as an input to the function block RXDU? How works the FB RXDU? How I can set the codes? How I set the fb RXDU as an output?

  10. Migration from C60H

    First of all, I'd like to say hello to all of you. This is my first post here. I'm not well experienced in Omron products and I need a little help from you. My client has an old machine with Omron C60H PLC, He asked me the make the backup of the program and put the newer PLC. I'm thinking of using CP1L series (or CJ2 - not sure of it now). The question is, what accesories do I need to connect and upload program from C60H to my PC? I heard that the 3G2a6-LK201 module is adequate. Do I need something else? I'm using CX-programmer. Can I handle uploading program from C60H with this software? Is there a function that converts old program to newer version compatibile with CP1L or CJ2 series, or must it be done manually? If you have any tutorials or tips and tricks about migrating from C60H to newer series of Omron, I would very appreciate it. Thanks in advance, Marcin
  11. Hello, I am having troubles configuring my Data Station Plus to be able to read my Vacon VFD registers over a Profibus network. The network is configured from an Omron PLC. I have communication but i do not know how to map the tags on Crimson to be able to read what the drives are doing. I am most likely thinking my offset on the tags that i have set are the main problem. Any input/ suggestion would be great thanks Specs on System: -Omron PLC CJ2M w/profibus PRM21 -Omron HMI NS-12 -3 Vacon NX VFD's -Data Station Plus w/profibus module

  13. Omron CJ1M-CPU13-ETN to .NET Framework

    Hello People, In my school we had an assignment to program a Sorting machine using an Omron PLC and CX-Programmer. Now we got the assignment to make an HMI that we can open on our own computer (Windows 8.1) so that we can control various things of our program, such as reading and writing bits, and other data (To the PLC obviously). Now I only have very little experience in reading and writing data from a PLC (Using a PC), I have used the libnodave library to connect to a Siemens S7-300 PLC. With this I managed to read and write bits, and also read and write data to a DataBlock. We wrote this program in Visual Basic 2013 using the .NET Framework with the libnodave library as an added extension. Now I have searched far and wide on the internet but have not come across any good examples of how to do this with an Omron PLC. So I hoped that I could get some advice from you guys. What I'm asking is if anybody here has maybe a link to a guide/ example program/ manual that could get me forward? And if I can easily get this done with Visual Basic, by adding an extension, could anybody tell me which extension this would be? And where I could find it? I appreciate any help. :D Thanks in advance, BitsNBytesRookie
  14. Good day I have a scenario where I need to connect to Ethernet ST-lite units to an L-series PLC. With a Q-series you will use the Modbus card and create a Intellgent Function Module to do this and specify the header addressing for the unit. With the L-series, you have Modbus on the build-in Ethernet port, but how do I now setup and specify the addressing for the for the ST-lite unit? Please help...

  18. Hello, I am looking for Omron PLC's bit set instruction, which is similar to Mitsubishi's, like, in Mitsubishi PLC: Set B1000Z0 if Z0 is 10AA, then B10AA will be set. has Omron's instruction set contains such functionality? In my application, PLC will receive a number for example N(i.e. a sequence number), and I want to set the set the Nth bit in a memory block (W or so). Many thanks in advance. Xing

  21. need help with SCADA database. moving 50k points

    Hello, Let me preface this. I have used this site many times when searching for issues and it has always been helpful. This is my first post here. I have been programming PLC's, HMI's, VFD's etc etc for 15 years, fairly complex stuff. I have also done lots of SCADA programming but more just for basic interface, monitoring, basic parameters changes, logging, etc etc. I am not facing a setup where I must do a large recipe/batch data transfer and I am confused as to what the best path is to achieve this. I have fairly basic knowledge of VB script as I have not needed to use it very often. Here is the problem I am facing. The SCADA package the customer has is Omron CX-Supervisor. The network is all Ethernet Based 1) I have 26 moulding machines on the plant floor2) There are 50 different moulds that are moved around from machine to machine3) Each mould can run 1 of 10 different colours4) There are 100 differing cycle parameters for each colour/mould combination =50x10x100 = 50 k points for total machine that = 50k x 26 = 1.3 million ! What the end result will be is this. From the SCADA operator terminal they would like to be able to keep a 'master set' of these settings, call up a mould/colour combo and see the individual parameters. Then they would like to edit individual parameters and download to each individual machine, or all at once. I do have a PLC at the Main terminal that was used for translation of the old serial network to ethernet. All of the serial connections have been removed so it is basically doing nothing. I could use this as a "master" for holding parameters if needed. What is the best way to go about this. Create a database, use the built in recipe manager, use PLC here as 'master storage". I feel once I get down a path it will make more sense...I just don't want to pick the wrong option and have to redo it all. Keep in mind my PLC coding is vastly superior to my knowledge of database manipulating and VB coding ThanksDan
  22. Is possible to comunicate an Eaton/Cutler Hammer INCOM/IMPACC network with a Modbus network ? Any experience ? Many thanks in advance.
  23. http://accautomation.ca/now-you-can-have-robust-data-logging-for-free-part-1/ YouTube overview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Xa2HYVOxE0 Robust PLC Data LoggerWith traditional loggers, software will read the memory of the PLC and store in a local computer. If the network stops or the PLC communication fails then the logging will stop.Creating a robust PLC data logger allows the communication to be stopped for a period of time without losing any of the data for collection. This is accomplished by storing the data locally on the PLC until communication is restored. All of the data is then read without loss. The amount of time that the connection can be lost will be dependent on the memory size of the PLC and the frequency of the data collected.This series will walk you through the steps to create and implement a robust PLC data logger using the following equipment and hardware.

  25. I successfully read the input and output of OMRON PLC CPM2A with Indusoft web studio (IWS) by using OMPLC driver. I have select OMPLC driver (Serial Com). Then configure a driver worksheet. The driver worksheet is the place that PLC tags are associated to InduSoft tags. I successfully read the I/O but I failed to write the I/O of PLC by using IWS. Can you help me? It is difficult to find OMPLC Standard Driver Sheet (SDS) for control relay output block (CROB) and Analogue output block (AOB). The attached diagram shows My Standard Driver Sheet (SDS) setup. Thank you for your kind cooperation. Zack Malaysia
