  4. Hello, I'm looking for a simple data logging software, something that doesn't require any programming skills. Thank you!
  5. Hello All, A little bit about my current role. I am currently a Automation and Welding Robotics Programmer ( automotive industry ). I have been programming robotics for almost 4 years at my company, but this is all experience work, no qualifications. I enjoy the role but this is very insecure due to having no qualifications, if the company was to go under. I am currently working out in Hungary on a secondment with my company. The project was the introduction of a second line at one of our other plants. This has gone successfully and will be coming to an end come December.  While i have been here i have been working with a PLC Engineer ( Contractor ), After speaking with him about his role it intrigued me and felt it was something i would enjoy pursuing. Unfortunately it appears that he is a "knowledge is power" kinda guy which leaves me unable to learn anything from him.  So i am 30 Years of age this year... So my question is too any of you experienced and hopefully helpful individuals is...  Is 30 too old to start this career? if not then; Where is the best place to start learning about PLC Programming? What should i be learning? What courses are available? - Are there recognised governing bodies for this role? What career path would you suggest? I hope someone is willing to share info / answer some of my questions. Help in anyway would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Hello, I am currently working on programming my first sortation system.  Attached is a blue print of the in feed conveyors and their loadout lines.  As boxes merge together they will be scanned by the barcode scanner.  From there we will be told which lane each box must go down, from the WCS.   My question is, without encoders, what would be the best way to control this system? Counting the packages as they pass through the photoeye? Or setting timers?   Thanks, James Sorting Conveyor Layout.pdf

  9. C28P processor

    I purchased a couple of C28P units on Ebay, thinking they were I/O units which I could connect to my C28K. Unfortunately, when I tried to use syswin software to enter a ladder program into the units, I got rejected by the software.  Can someone tell me what software I need to communicate with C28P.  If not, does anyone want to trade these units for C28K..

  11. FR-DU04 (FR-A500) vs FR-DU04-1 (FR-V500). Programming unit differences. (A VSD question) What is the difference between these units? Why are they not interchangeable. (Other than the fact that the FR-DU04-1 is used for vector VSD applications, and the FR-DU04 is intended for standard induction motor applications. Is this a matter of firmware differences?

  16. 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!

  19. Help Programming a Beckhoff PLC

    I have a very simple problem that I need help with.  I have some programming experience but I am brand new to PLCs and structured text.  I am using TwinCat 3 to program a Beckhoff CX9020.  My goal is to read the temperature from my thermocouple and open or close a valve based on the temperature.  I have successfully connected the PLC to the TwinCat software and I am able to see the value of the thermocouple increase and decrease when I touch it with my fingers.  I need to link that value to a variable in my code so I can have the valve act on it.  I don't know how to properly address the inputs and outputs.  Thank you!

I have constructed a small test board with everything mounted to it and have successfully written and downloaded a simple project to the plc with timers, etc.   Now I need to find a way to program the terminal to make changes to the program.   I am looking for some free panelbuilder 32 or anything that will allow me to program the terminal and use it.   Can anyone help me? All help will be greatly appreciated!

  25. Hi, I am a beginner to PLC. I am currently working on a home project with Allen Bradley 1100 model. The project is to build a door open-shut cycle tester.  The motor I have purchased is a Bodine Brushless DC34B/FV INTEGRAmotor. My goal is to utilize the Allen Bradley to to control the motor and then the motor drive a shaft to open/shut the door. Through the LCD screen the of PLC, we can set and view the amount of cycles.  I have finished the initial stage of wiring. But not sure how should I start on the programming part. Could any of you give me any hints on the programming portion? Thank you so much.
