  1. Hello all, I am looking into creating a system where I have an NX102 in a main panel, and numerous satellite panels (up to 20) with EtherCat Slaves which would then have daisy-chained EtherCat slaves. Essentially, the main panel would need a GX-JC06 to allow branching out, but this only has 6 ports.  1 of them would be used to connect to the master (NX102), but would I be able to connect one GX-JC06 to another?  I highly doubt the GX-JC06 behaves like a typical router, but I can't find any documentation about creating more than 5 branches. Thanks, K
  2. Hello,   I am currently working on controlling schneider motors using an omron PLC. https://download.schneider-electric.com/files?p_enDocType=User+guide&p_File_Name=ILS1B_ILS1F_ILS1R_manual_V200_logo-EN.pdf&p_Doc_Ref=0198441113574 https://www.se.com/us/en/download/document/ILx1R_RS485_manual_V201_EN/ Currently i am using RS485 to communicate. I can send messages and am actually receiving something back. I have also used the schneider program lexium CT. I can actually make my motor respond to inputs from its graphical interface.    Currently i am using this ladder diagram (and manually setting the outputs to high for testing purposes)  And this D memory. As you can see D100 is used to store the last received message from the slave.    The motor also has an LED to indicate if the motor is in power enabled mode. It does not go into power enabled mode, which is the first command i'm trying to send. I do not fully understand why the motor isn't responding and why my received data seems to indicate no errors. Does anyone here have any experience or can anyone spot what i am doing wrong here?       Kind regards, Ralf    
  3. Motion Control

    Hi Everyone.   I have been tasked with changing out an older Flex Drive servo drive to a more modern Micro Flex drive in a machine that has an Omron CQM1H-CPU51 PLC.  I'm having a few issues but hope that i can gain some clarity around at least one of the hurdles Im facing from here. Biggest issue for me at this moment is My work hasn't yet purchased a programming lead for this PLC (or even the bits required to make one myself) but i have a feeling the control for the Servo is done via motion control in the PLC.  Question here is, if changing from one servo drive to another type, will the motion control code need to be updated to work with the new servo drive?  I have very limited experience with motion control itself at this stage so I'm a bit lost when it comes to these sort of details. Regards Kiwi_man82
  4. CP1E won't connect or run program

    Hi there! Today a CP1E-E10DR-D suddenly stopped working. RUN led was off and I couldn't connect to it via USB getting this error: "Selected port does not exist. Select proper port number from Change PLC dialog and press OK button", and automatic online function didn't work as well(it's not a cable/driver problem since I successfully connected to a CJ2 CPU using same cable and PC). Since I also tried to connect with the CPU outside the control cabinet with no success, I asume there is something wrong at hardware level.  My question is, have you ever faced something like this? My plan is to try to revive it somehow (maybe trying to locate any defective component in the PCBs or something). So I was just wondering if you have any advice in order to achieve it.  Thanks in advance!
  5. QD77GF Error D304

    Hi. I am using PLC Q06UDV wit QD77GF to operate 11 servos, it is my first time using QD77GF and CC-Link IE Field. I've done the parameter setting. but the qd77gf error lamp started to blinking. i try to check it in cc link ie field diagnostic and didn't find anything except the error lamp blinking in monitor view. then i checked system diagnostic , no error showing up but, only historical error when i started the power of plc. it show D304 error.  in manual book the solution are lengthen the operation cycle qd77gf, check the cable, and shorten plc scan time. where can i find this setting sir?  
  6. HMI Replacement Options

    Hello! We are looking to find a replacement for our Omron NS Screens in what seems like about 20 systems...there are so many third party/other vendor options available, I am honestly overwhelmed, so I thought maybe some of you had great experience with other vendors screens that I could look into using in our equipment.  The screen will have to communicate with an Omron CJ PLC, serial or Ethernet is fine, Ethernet is preferred.  Would also prefer screens that actually have Omron drivers.   Thank you!!
  7. Hi to everyone!   Our company is planning to build >10 same machines. Some features will be developed later down the road. And here I'm facing a problem where I need to start tracking PLC and HMI program build revisions. Has Omron any internal tools to generate program build revision? Regards, Scotty
  8. Hi all, I'm new here and need an opinion from you guys on how to set the Gateway for PLC CP2E in CX Programmer ? From my discussion with supplier (OMRON), they mentioned it was unable to set any gateway for CP2E model but I found on some sources that for previous model for CP1L is able to set the gateway. Supposed to be the Gateway function can be supported by latest model, am I right ? Need an explanation on this, Thank You
  9. I would like to get some feedback or alternate suggestions in terms of monitoring a database connection. The attachment here shows the current programming for the DB_Connect function block which requires the Execute input to constantly be ON.  From what I can tell, if the connection is dropped - let's just say the Ethernet cable is unplugged - this input will still be on, and according to the function block, still connected. The Get1minClk is in place to continuously try establish this connection once powered on, but I cannot find any way to periodically check this connection without dropping it and reestablishing it.  My understanding is the _DBC_Status.Run only checks that the PLC service is running properly, but is there a way to monitor a heartbeat of the connection TO the database?  The only way I've found thus far is to drop the connection and reconnect.  But this would be detrimental to the system as it would possibly be reconnecting to the database while trying to write to out to it and hold up the show.  As it stands in the second image, the Ethernet cable is unplugged, but the connection shows no errors. Thanks and happy Friday! -K  
  10. Hello,  I am using Omron’s safety G7SA to relay 24 volt line. But the strange thing happening is that, one relay’s output is only 5 voltage, even the relay is on. I exchanged relays, it remains the same. Maybe the base socket is problematic?  Or is this just G7SA failure? 5v (exactly 4.96v) is strange. Please give me some advice.   Many thanks in advance.   Ting    
  11. Hello, I am rather unexperienced with PLC's but have some experience. I Currently have 2 Lexium ILS1 motors which we want connected over RS485.  I have read a couple of manuals. I have found which format they want to receive their data and what the pinout of their pre assmbled cable is (which hasn't been delivered yet).  I am currently unsure about a couple of things. The wiring the formatting of my data i'm sending, and the program.   The pictured below show my motor (which runs when i connect it to the PC and run it using the software provided so it is in working order) and the PLC with option port (which i used to transmit data to another PLC, so again i can't blame the hardware for being at fault here). However when i connect the cable and try to communicated I Don't see the LED light up. I followed Lexiums guide on which pins to use. But i figured for good form i might include these pictures to be certain hardware is correct.      Finally here is my program. I followed Omrons quick start instructions. But: my send ready flags never become high and the way data has to be formatted for these lexiums seems very labour intensive. But this is how i understood it needed to be done. Am i doing something (or a lot) wrong here?      I hope someone can help me out here! If any further information is needed i'll do my best to provide it.   Kind regards.

  14. Hi, I have a CP1L and CP1E Omron PLC, and I try to make communication between my PLCs and my system (raspberry pi with Linux OS) using Node-red and specifically using the OMRON-FINS node ( https://flows.nodered.org/node/node-red-contrib-omron-fins) and more detail ( https://github.com/ptrks/node-omron-fins ). So I’m looking for a module to create an Ethernet port for my PLCs. ( both PLCs have RS232 port) . Can you please guide me to find a compatible RS232 to Ethernet module for my PLCs?  Thank you
  15. Kinetix 5500 lost power

    Hello all,    I have 3 kinetix 5500 drives connected in series but some how the 3rd drive lost power. all the fuses in the cabinet look good. nothing else is tripped either.    any advice is appreciated.  thank you   
  16. Hello, I am working on a project currently that uses a windows application on a PC to communicate with an NX1P2 controller to read and write variables data. I found a course on Udemy which has a Visual Studio project with OMRON DLLs that are used for these communications. I confirmed with OMRON that they do have official DLLs for this, but the technical support guy has told me he is trying to find them himself.   I have attached a screenshot of the DLL references.  I am really looking for the DLL libraries, aswell as the documentation on their functionality to I can use them to communicate. Any help would be greatly appreciated!  
  17. Hello! I am working on a quote for a new project that will use EtherCAT but also requires DeviceNet for some legacy components.  Has anyone successfully used the Beckhoff EtherCAT coupler (EK1100) with the DeviceNet Master Terminal (EL6752) and an Omron PLC as the EtherCAT master? My concern is that the coupler will only communicate with the Beckhoff EtherCAT master, but since it is so much more expensive to get the new Omron parts to communicate DeviceNET i am hoping this could be an option.  The equipment is extremely simple and price is a major consideration.   Thank you!!!

  19. Hello everyone I'm new to omron plc . I have a system which consists  1. Omron Plc CP2E 2. Two stepper motors and their drivers.  3. 4 Inputs-  one stepper start push button, second stepper go back push button, third stepper 1 home sensor, fourth stepper 2 home sensor 4. 4 Outputs- stepper 1 step(-) Q 100.00, stepper 1 dir(-) Q100. 02, stepper 2 step(-) Q100. 01, stepper 2 dir(-) Q100. 03 Seuence is like that:- Initially both stepper motors are at their home sensor.  When start push button is pressed both stepper move 110 mm distance and then stop.  Now when go back push button is pressed both stepper motors should go back to their home sensors and should stop at reaching their hone sensors.  This is the sequence. Can someone please send me the program by writing in cx - programmer or upload the photos of ladder program and settings also. Please
  20. Bonjour, svp comment résoudre le problème désactivation master
  21. Bonjour svp, qlq me l'aide ,j’ai un problème au niveau automate CJ1M CPU12 via  Erreur de numéro dupliqué 
  22. I recently wrote a simple java driver to communicate with Omron devices (CJ1 and CJ2) via the FINS protocol over UDP. I've installed this software at a number of my client's sites and it works well most of the time. However, I've encountered a number of instances where a CJ1 device will consistently return what looks like a valid response but every memory register I request will return zero. I've deployed the software to 5 sites with identical configurations. The sites have one CJ2 device and one CJ1 device.  The CJ2 devices work exactly as expected. Three of the CJ1 devices work exactly as expected but the other two have this issue where every value is zero all of the time.  This issue is not intermittent at those sites - I have never had it return anything other than a zero for any memory register for a CJ1 device at those two sites. Example: TX: [80, 00, 02, 00, 0a, 00, 00, c9, 00, ff, 01, 01, 98, 00, 00, 00, 00, 64] RX: [c0, 00, 02, 00, c9, 00, 00, 0a, 00, ff, 01, 01, 21, 08, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00]  
  23. Hi, I have a project including 32 digital outputs, 8 Pt100 probes, 4 thermocouples, and 4 analog inputs so I have to choose an OMRON PLC. The supplier in my country has only CP2E and CP1E PLCs. Is there a way to connect more than three expansion modules to the PLC? On the website is stated that the maximum number of expansion units is 3, if the answer is no, is there a solution to this problem? Thank you
  24. I'm working on a program where I manipulate REAL numbers in Sysmac studio using an NX1029020 PLC. My problem is I am new to automation and I don´t know how to display those numbers when connecting to an NB HMI. I´m trying to send the data to a bar picture and a number display. My question is which AT Specification Attribute should I assign to my variables in Sysmac Studio and their corresponding Area in NB-Designer? I tried using the DM area but it didn't show numbers on the displays, only shows *****. Should I convert my real variables in Sysmac first? Or how can I keep decimal numbers and then display them? My current configuration in Sysmac: Name Data type AT Network publish ST1 REAL %D5 Publish Only ST2 REAL %D3 Publish Only My current configuration in NB-Designer Bar Picture Addr. Type D Address 3 Code type BIN Number Display Addr. Type D Address 3 Code type BIN Data type Float Integer 4 Decimal 2
  25. Hi everyone,  I am new to Mitsubishi PLC. I am trying to see from where Run or speed commands goes to Servo. I have MELSEC FX2M-32MT with FX2N-1PG cards for the Servo and I am using GX Developer 8.91v  Also, I would like to mention that initially I found out that BATT V light was lit so here what I didi. >I replaced the battery within 20 second while powered ON. Before changing the battery I took upload of the program successfully.  >I have cleared PLC memory and re downloaded the program.  > Checked Memory addresses M8005 8006 both are Low.  Now, when I am trying to run  my machine it is not giving output to two Servos while a conveyor operates when started from the HMI so it means program is inside PLC, right ? Program is attached if someone wants to have a look.  labeling mc 300322.rar
