  1. PVRIO

    Hello,  I am trying to migrate a PanelView plus program that uses RIO communications to run on PanelView plus 7 terminal. Using Factory Talk View Studio ME, I restored the runtime file and changed the terminal type and size as needed. My intentions are to make some sort of table to list all of the PVRIO tags, and find the corresponding tags in  the program running inside of a 1756-L71 V30. I would then use the find and replace Tool until I changed all of the tags in the PanelView program to point directly to the corresponding tags in the control logix program. My plan is then to delete the RIO communication shortcut in the PanelView, and get rid of the lines of logic that handled the block transfer reads and writes. My question is this, is this as easy as the plan that I laid out or am I missing something?  The Control logix program was converted from a PLC 5 program a few years ago, and I suddenly have time on my hands to try to get this obsolete terminal changed out. Any advice would be appreciated. I hope each one of you are well and stay that way, or have a speedy recovery if not.  Thanks,  geetee

  3. I wish to print from a Panelview Plus 7 1500 to a Konica Minolta 'bizhub' 4402P. The printer is not on the same network as the machine but is reachable through a router to the corporate network. I already have this working on one machine but don't know how we succeeded in setting it up. The setup that works is: Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard (it's actually a Konica Minolta 4402P). Model: Color LaserJet 3800. Port  10.xx.xx.xx (the WAN address of the printer). Driver: wt5hpspd.dll (v52.1070) We never had a Color LaserJet 3800 but we may have had a black and white HP laser printer that worked with this driver and now works with the Konica when our IT department replaced it. When using Add Printer the system tries to connect with the specified IP address and fails (even though we can ping it) and then the drive installation stops. Does anyone know a way to force the installation so I can try to replicate the working setup?

  5. Hello - we run a car wash that is controlled by a Modicon TSX Micro 3721001. It is indicating a CPU fault. I've attached a picture of the unit in place, with the LEDs lit. I have ordered a new base unit (2nd picture). I haven't tried it out yet, but it is tested working. I am hoping a base unit replacement will solve the problem, but wondering if it it possible the problem could be in the modules? I did not order those but now wondering if I should have... If the issue could be with the modules, is there a way to test which one it would be so I won't need to order all 4? If it coult be a module, I might order that now as I am in a rush to get back in service. Thanks for any guidance! Andy
  6. We have a carwash automatic controller board with an Eagle Signal Micro 190 PLC.  The program has been reloaded after power outages from a MX207l1 EEPROM Memory Transport Module for over 20 years.  Suddenly the reload isn't working -- either the MTM lost it's program or the socket has worn out over the years.  Anyway, the program can also be loaded via a 9-pin serial cable from a PC.  In trying that, we've found that the program the vendor gave us on the PC doesn't match that on the MTM.  Testing shows that only one output is incorrect.  We simply need to change output on O22 (broken trace on the board 20 years ago) to O20 (which would then match the MTM code).  I am a software engineer, but have never used ladder logic in a PLC.  I *think* I have changed the output, but maybe I just changed a comment.  [Testing requires powering off the carwash, with loss of $$ if we can't get it back up, and $80K expense for total failure, so trial-n-error isn't feasible.]  (1) Can anyone discuss what I did with me so I have a better idea if it will work or not?  (2) Is there anyone in the Atlanta area willing to look at this?  Thanks for reading!
  7. CCW Font Sizes Changes

    Hi, I've been writing several programs in CCW using Micro800's and PanelView 800's. Several times now, the font sizes of every single element in every single screen changes. The first time it happened, the font sizes, border widths and corner radius' changed to 440. The second time it happened, only the font sizes seemed to change to 8 - but not on the starting screen. It has once again happened, except this time every element is font size 8 and corner radius 7 - except the second screen which appears unaffected. I am using a default font size of 14. Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening? I don't think it should be relevant, but I am using a virtual machine and sometimes open multiple projects with different screen sizes. Any thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated!
  8. I am creating the project with Connected Components Workbench, adding the panel. It will not create the folder three to the project. I have the standard version. How to program it now?  
  9. Hello, I have a .PBW file in an obsolete PanelView that I need to troubleshoot, but I can't open it.  Called AB TechConnect for support, but tech said it was too archaic and he, essentially, needed to start with a Windows98 machine and PanelBuilder 32 to even begin.  FactoryTalk doesn't know what to do with it.  File is attached.  Any suggestions/assistance is much appreciated ABWWTP.PBW
  10. Panelview C400

    Hi everybody... I have a Panelview C400  that was running OK, but CCW asked me to upgrade the firmware. After download the new firmware, and follow exactly the flash procedure, the HMI reboot, make the autotesting and then keep in boot without load the SO... How to reset to factory defaults?? or downgrade the firmware?? or anything to help me to solve this issue??? Thanks in advance... Yony
  11. I'm upgrading from a Panelview 550 to a Panelview Plus 600, I already have the HMI files converted. The PLC is a SLC 5/03. I found this post, I am wonder if there is other options besides using a 2711P-RN3. A quick Google seems like it's obsolete, but I am waiting to hear back from a sales guy. I am wondering if I should be able to use the rs-232 serial port DF1 full duplex.  
  12. My SLC 5/04 is currently connected to a PanelView 1000 having only the RS-232 and using the SLC's bottom RS232 Port.  The PanelView Cable we can disconnect and connect a laptop, go online and troubleshoot problems, BUT we have to disconnect the laptop and reconnect the PanelView to operate the machine. Question:  Which of the other two Ports on the 5/04 could I use for the laptop connection leaving the PanlView connected? Also what cable to use on the 8-Pin Programming Port or the 3-Pin DH+ Port?
  13. I have an old PanelView 1000 catalog number 2711-K10G1 that needs to be replaced, I don't want to replace it with another panel view 1000, I want to get a panelview plus, the problem is that the Panelview is connected to a PLC-5 and it's connected by DH+. The only thing I can think of is to use an 1761-NET-ENI to connect the PLC-5 to ethernet/IP...but even the ENIs are discontinued by Allen Bradley. Are there any panel views that have data highway? 
  14. Looking for PanelView suggestions

    I have a customer that insists on me using a panelview for his project and I have basically no experience with them. I have been using another brand exclusively for many years so I'm well versed in how to use an HMI, just not Allen Bradley. I'm hoping to get some advice about which unit to use. The system is a simple waste water facility and the controller will likely be a micrologix 1400. The customer wants something in the 15" range. Looking on the AB website I see Plus 6 & Plus 7 both seem to give me that size. Are major differences that I should know about? thanks     
  15. Hello I would like to first let everyone know I am new to the world of troubleshooting or programming plc's . What we have is a SLC500 system that is connected to a Panelview 1000 HMI via the DH+ network. The issue we have is the panelview displays a gate that is suppose to be closed at as gate fault. When i connect to the plc the ladder rung shows that the gate is closed. To show various positions of the gate the programmer used N13:70 as gate opened and N13:71 as gate faulted and N13:72 as gate closed. When i checked the logic it showed the bit N13:72 as engaged or true if you will. This logic is in the ladder rung that is labeled PV Status which i take is the status the HMI reads so my question is why does it show GF when it should be reading GC. Ive searched all through the logic and it doesnt appear to be wrong here is the logic the best I can simulate it  ladder 6 rung  53  instruction is  XIC O:13.0/11 and OTE N13:76/0 (Gate Open ) and the branch is XIC I:5.0/11and OTE N13:76/1 (Gate Fault) next branch is XIC N13:3/11 and OTE N13:76/2 (Gate Closed which this section is green or highlighted or true which ever you like) when i looked at the input XIC N13:3/11 this is what I found is that this XIC is on ladder four rung10 and has the following XIC T4:154/DN and branchoff that is XIC I:5.0/11(gate opened)XIC I:6.0/11(gate closed) which these two inputs are false or not lighted the output is OTL N13:3/11 and it is true which makes the previous rung true showing the gate closed. So why is the panelview showing the wrong position. I even went as far as resetting the HMI and the PLC so if anyone has a helpful hint I would greatly appreciate it.
  16. details: panelview (2711P-RDT15C) connected to "switch A" (ntron p/n: F-716TX) "processor A " (1756-L62) is connected to "switch A" "processor B" (1756-L73S) is connected to "switch B" (ntron p/n: F-716TX) "switch B" is connected to "switch A" I'm trying to use a single panelview to communicate to 2 separate PLC processors (separate chassis). When I go to add the shortcut in factory talk I find the "processor B". When I connect my laptop to  "switch A" I can see every thing in RSlinxs.  Any one experience this issue or know how to make this setup work? Maybe there's a switch setting that is not allowing RSlinxs enterprise in the PV to see both processors? 
  17. HMI panel view plus 600

    Hello, my AB HMI panel view plus 600, when I power it only the comm green light comes on, the touch screen does not come on, any help I will appreciate thanks. 
  18. I have a Panelview model 2711-T5A20L1 that the IT Dept. tells me has SNMP Protocol active. They want it turned off. Is it possible, does the device need this protocol? If it's possible to turn it off, how? I have search the knowledge base on and found nothing. I have done a search of PDF manual for "SNMP" and turned no results.
  19. Uploading from Panelview 600

    I am trying to upload program from panelview 600 with a windows xp pc using true serial port. The HMI has device net and rs232 port I am using straight rs232. Is there any set up or can i upload from the memory card attached to hmi. The HMI has a glare and display is not visible, we are trying to upgrade to panelview plus. Thanks  Model 2711-B6C10x FRN 4.48
  20. I have some old Panelview plus displays (version5) that are not being used.  I would like to set them up to communicate with some version 30 PLCs for some basic indication (nothing important).  I know the hardware version won't support it communicating in the standard way, but has anybody been able to set up generic communication for something like this.  I hate for the displays to go to waste, but AB will just tell me to buy a new display.  I figure there has to be a way to communicate to the display with MSG statements or something.  This isn't for a specific project, just trying to not watse displays that we have.   Thanks.
  21. Micro 850 to Logix5000 comms.

    I am trying to read data from a Micro 850 into my L18 (V 30.11). I have never set up an ethernet bridge between these 2 components and i have been up against a wall since starting. I have the MSG blocks in my routine but i am obviously configuring either the bridge, MSG instruction or something wrong. Any help will be GREATLY appreciated!!!
  22. I got into a project were they have 20 panelviews plus 1500 around the building, and they want to be able to serrate the displays accessible by the users based on the physical location of the panelview, for example Room1 should not see room2 but can see room3, at this moment we have a complete application with all the screens that have been downloaded to all panelviews, in order to avoid maintain 20 different ME applications I would like to ask if any of you had this problem before or any ideas on how to go forward with it.   Thanks
  23. Hey, this is probably a stupid question, but how do I delete old FactoryTalk View Programs. They are the ones that I have uploaded from a PanelView Plus via the "Transfer Utility" and then restored runtime using the "Application Manager". I open up FactoryTalk View Studio and I can see a list of all the runtime applications or I can create a new one. My question is, where are these applications stored by default? I have a bunch of old ones and test programs that I want to delete that are just cluttering up my list. I attached a screenshot to show you exactly what I'm talking about. Thanks, I'm sure this is a pretty easy/ dumb question. Howard

    A couple of mounths back a posted about the need to replace a no longer available panelview550. I got allot of good feedback and decided to go with a panel from EZ automation and the DH485 network protocall. Last week I installed my new EZ3 touchscreen and debugged over a couple of days, Overall I am happy with the product and the operators seam to like it (the graphics are allot bigger and in color).  I wonder if the EZ automation screen will last 17 years like the Panelview? I am down to 1 problem that i have not been able to resolve, the machines have parts counters on them that display the  number of parts produced since they where last reset. I am using C5:00.acc and so forth for the display tags and reseting with a B:3 bit. The parts counters count and reset like they should but the problem is that they do not retain the count totals when the power is turned off at the end of shift. Looking for advice on making a retenative timer
  25. Is it possible to communicate from a PC program to PLC program for reading inputs and setting outputs? How can it be made ? is it possible to do from TER connector or AUX connector , without special comm module?
