  1. Is there an efficient tool to manage and validate CX-Programmer addressing. Requirements: - Highlight Duplicate Address allocation - Compact/Defrag address range to avoid wasting memory space. Note: - Any FINS addressing will have to be reconfigured - This approach assumes symbol use rather than direct addressing in the logic.
  2. I am trying to use Reusable files, but it is greyed out. Is there a setting that needs to be enabled to activate it? I am using CX-Programmer v 9.74 Update 1: Apparently, when you create a data structure this gets greyed out  
  3. Array A INT[32] Array Index B INT Destination C INT I am trying to move an Array (A) Element (A[2]) using a symbol (B) in ladder into a destination symbol (C) C = A [ B ] Result: ERROR: Array Index of Operand 1 out of range at rung 1 ( 6, 0 ).  The documentation suggests that it is possible, but I am unsure if there is something I am doing incorrectly. Note* Fixed indexing works with no errors Is there another method to accomplish this?   PLC : CJ2M CPU31 CX- Programmer: Verion 9.74 Update 1: If I go online to the PLC It does look like the array look up is working. Is the issue with the mov block? Update 2: I changed the memory locations which has caused a different error to appear. This error is clearer but does not explain the manual excerpt I posted further up ERROR: Only the constant can be specified for the index of the array.  at rung 5 ( 6, 0 ).  Update 3: Solution 1 I managed to hack together a proof of concept using pointers and indirect offsets  Update 4: Solution 2 For some strange reason things work as expected inside of the function blocks so I made one where the array is In-Out and with an input and output respectively. Note* External reference to pointers inside of the function block produced an error. Function block Logic     Update 5: Solution 3 Now I feel like I am going crazy, I tried just the original code again and it works... I have no idea why and if it was not for all the documentation I would be lost as to why it works now... Update 6: Conclusion It seems to have array indexing work the array index must exist in the D Memory Block. The reason it did not work above is because I somehow had a MOVR block when I tested after moving all the variables to the D Memory Block. I hope this journey helps someone else :)
  4. "PLC No Response" NB HMI Omron

    Hello Everybody, I continued to work on project this morning but I seem to be plagued with the "PLC No Response" error. This error will only come up when I assign a PLC address to a particular object.  I have followed the steps in the post(https://forums.mrplc.com/index.php?/topic/39885-nb-designer-hmi-plc-no-response-error-solved/) to try and clear the error but am having no luck. In the screenshot I have assigned the large "Start Process" as a bit button with the write address being W50.00. When the button is pressed it should trigger a bit in the PLC but this is when the error appears. During this test I am connected to the PLC and in run mode with the PLC and HMI address assigned correctly. I have read and followed the section in the manual regarding "PLC No Response" but still no positive results.  I just want to check that there is nothing I have done at a programmer end that could cause these issues. I am happy to provide files. Thanks, Ryan

  6. Foreign Comments

    I have a program that was pulled from process that came from China,i believe. the comments are complete gibberish. are there more than one version of cx programmer for different countries, i thought we were past that with the commentor, however these look like some of the old double character stuff i saw back in the old nt tools.   Thanks Joe Meyer
  7. Hi all,  I am having trouble with Cx-programmer when trying to remotely connect to a Omron plc (cj2m cpu34) using Tosibox vpn. Set up is that the Omron plc is located in customers facility and is connected to a Tosibox "lock box ", and i have the "key". From the Tosibox key side application i can see that the PLC is connected to the Tosibox lock and is available. The problem is that in CX-programmer, when i try to search for available devices (by using the PLC->Auto online-> Ethernet/IP node online)  i cant find the PLC i am looking for, or any other device connected to the tosibox network. Just gives a empty list. Before searching the cx-programmer ask's me to choose interface card, showing my Ethernet and Wlan - connections, i have used Ethernet one. I have tried matching the IP addresses in network connections settings for the Ethernet connection but for no avail. And apparently this connection has worked before, i just have no idea how it was done or what were the settings or methods they were using.  I'm not sure but i have a gut feeling that somehow the cx-programmer cant recognize (or connect to) the Tosibox vpn connection and proceeds to search without it and then of course finding nothing. Could it have something to do with the network interfaces? That when i use the Ethernet to connect, it doesn't go trough the vpn? I am not really familiar with these system so any kind of help would be much appreciated. So my question: has any one of you ever encountered something similar when dealing with cx-programmer, tosibox or vpn's in general?   Thanks in advance.      
  8. Please Help me, I want to connect aczet brand weighing machine CG203L to PLC CP1L-M. But several times I tried it didn't work, I've tried repeatedly in the settings section to adjust the baud rate and mode and have tried one by one but to no avail. Can any of your friends help? thank you
  9. GX Works3 Projectlib Locked

    Hello, I have a problem that I need to solve in a PLC program has it's projectlib locked.  I work for a company that contracted a PLC programmer before my time to program their new version of their control cabinets. The company did not write any specific contract with the contractor and just relied on his work. The guy later delevered a buggy software that is kind of functional (the bugs came up at the commissioning after the guy was paid and now he refuses to help or to provide more consultations). I have as a task to freshen this up and make it work without bugs, the problem is that the Projectlib is locked and I cannot access the source code.  The only thing that I can changes that I can make to the code is to put some logical circuits between the I/O of the already existing function blocks, which solved some problems, but not all and it keeps one of the most important ones as well. Anyways, that's my story, so now my question is, is there and possible way of unlocking the projectlib? Any feedback would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advace!
  10. 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

  19. need some help in writing a programm

    HI Everyone, i m quite new at PLC programming. I have to wite a programm for long product rejection. Now i have used a sensor to detect the hight of the product. As soon as the long product is detected it sets a bit and this bit works as input for a counter now for counting i have used another sensor signal which is the chain pulse signal.For blowing the product off i have used a pneumatic solenoid valve. after the long can is detected the counter reads 3 pulses of the chain pulse sensor and as it gets third pulse it generates an output. after the out put is on with that output a off delay timer is on which holds the solenoid valve on for 5 ms and as soon as the timer preset value is reached it resets the sequence. Hope i could explain the purpose and process i m going through. Now the issue is if there are continuous long products on the conveyor after the first product is detected After that till the time the counter is reached and that product is blown off all the other long products get through how can i drop all the consecutive long products. u can find the program in attached file  Thank u model.cxp
  20. Hi, I need help with my program. How do I include the fractional part of the position I set for encoder? I have an Omron PLC and using cx programmer.  I need to command my servo (from HMI number input) to move to a certain position. Now using a manual computation, my servo is supposed to move 95.65mm, however, using my plc program, the resulting position doesn't include the 0.65. I used the FIXL instruction to convert my result from float to 32 bit and it removed the fractional part of the value.   Thank you!

  22. GX works 2 software

    Hi guys    I am having trouble installing GX works 2 software. The software is fully legit and came with 2 license keys the first one I put on work laptop and second on my personal laptop. The install all goes fine but when i try open up GX  Works 2 I get this message from the attached image. I have plenty of room on my pc and even have other PLC from different manufacturers on it without issue but the GX Works is just giving me grief and I have tried to increase data on MY laptop and other windows fixes but still get this message when I try open it.  Has anyone else encountered this problem before or any ideas?   Cheers guys

    Hi, I'm quite new to the PLC programming, I saw this delay input in one of the videos, that automatically switched to 1 after a set time, it wasn't a timer, just an contact input with time delay
  25. Quick Designer Software

    I am looking for a working copy of software that will work to modify screens on an old Quick Panel.  I believe the software is called Quick Designer. The old Panel I am trying to access is serial communication only. I have bought an interface cable from PLC Trainer.  I have a Windows 7  32 bit machine ready to go. Thanks, Scot
