  1. Codesys

    Hello - I stumbled across some mention of Codesys and was curious if anyone here uses it. Pros/cons? prefer it over other programming software. Have it downloading currently (since you can download a free variation of the application) but it looks quite interesting. Also - what PLC hardware is programmed with it? Did not see that mentioned on their website when I was browsing through.
  2. So we have a PLC project coming up and its our first one and understand and can execute most of the sequence without issue.  The part that is getting me is how to handle the following efficiently using studio 5000 and panel view.   AHU has to be able to run test cycles User selectable up to 250 steps in a test cycle User selectable temperature setpoint for each step User selectable humidity setpoint for each step User selectable time duration for each step   I thought about using arrays but as i understand the allen-bradley plcs to change the array size you have to go offline and then back online so you could not change it dynamically.  Was considering doind this with reading the dataset from an excel document the user would edit. The other option for me is to have a static arrays size and then based on the number of steps the user select have the routine only execute x ammount of steps, which is done easy enough.  Big thing is after the code portion is lined out is there a way to dynamically change the hmi graphics to only display certain steps for the user to edit, maybe by using an array of bits that are on and off for visibility and then having a GUI object be shown or hidden based on that bit?

  7. Omron PLC Python communication

    Hello All,    I am college graduate student and I know little bit of cx-programmer for modifying existing program. I have master CJ2M CPU34 PLC connected with three CP1L PLC. All 4 PLC are connected via hub through Ethernet cable. I want to read/write some memory data to/from PLC through Python programming. As I am new to PLC and Python I have not much idea regarding omron PLC and python communication. So is it possible to connect python with master/slave PLCs directly? If yes then how can I communicate? I was trying with cpppo library to connect with PLC but I could not connect it.  I have attached the master PLC communication setup for the reference.    Any kind of lead/help is appreciated.    Thank you in advance.    -Yash

  13. FINS Communication with C++

    Hi, I'm having a little trouble connecting to a PLC from my program. I thought my previous post a few months ago fixed it, but apparently it did not do much. Here is my code: And here is the resulting reply from the PLC after converting it to hexadecimal So far, I've narrowed it down to the issue that my program is sending 64 instead of the 18 that was specified by the FINS command. I assume that the received error is due to the fact that the PLC did not receive the correct instructions from my program. The "End" is not sent by the PLC, it is a personal note for me to know where the received message ends. My goal is to simply receive signals from D00 to D68. I imagine that the received string should be in the form of: 00 C0 00 02 01 01 00 01 00 00 01 01 [Response Code] [Data] Can someone help point out where I can start looking for why my program is sending 64 instead of 18? I do think I am messing up something simple here, but I'm not sure where to start. EDIT: To clarify the models, I am connecting over Ethernet to an Omron CP1L-M40EDT with CP1W-CIF41 Thank you in advance!
  14. Hi!Are you tired of skimming through menu bar items in TIA Portal in order to finally find that one command that you were looking for?So was I!So I´ve composed a handy one-page list of keyboard shortcuts to execute those commands in no time (FACT - 99% of them are executed using your left pinky and your left/right index finger ). Check out the list of keyboards shortcuts in the PDF attached below.For more practical tips and tricks on TIA Portal PLC programming -> go and have a look at my video course by clicking on the link below:https://lnkd.in/eipFaGm   Keyboard Shortcuts.pdf
  15. Hello everyone, As the title suggests I am trying to display on a GOT1000 the real time frequency that the inverter is running at. I have attached my CC-Link settings and the associated programming as well. I tried using the example program from Mitsubishi but I got lost. From my understanding I should be seeing the output frequency in W3C4 however, I am not receiving any data. Any help would be appreciated. 
  16. PLC programming languages are used to program the automation devices in the industrial field. The device connect through PLCs can perform certain tasks like moving products or sorting them. The 5 most popular PLC Programing languages nowadays are all part of International Electrotechnical Commission Section 61131-3 Standard. IEC Standard is a set of rules that standardize PLC languages. The PLC programming language can be divided into two section: text-based and graphical.   Text-based Languages: Instruction List (IL) Structured Text (ST) Graphical Languages: Ladder Logic Diagram (LLD) Sequential Function Charts (SFC) Function Block Diagram (FBD)   Five Popular PLC Programming Languages You Need to Know

  18. Did you always wanted to get started with Siemens TIA Portal programming, but you were never sure where to start or how to get the best performance out of the platform? Eager to upgrade your TIA skillset from an instructor with over 10 years of TIA experience in the field?   -> Then this course might be just for you! My course "Siemens TIA Portal - PLC Programming Basics" will take you through the steps of creating your very first TIA application - from structuring (very important!) and programming your application, to downloading and troubleshooting your application online.  The course is based on video lectures and is around 2.5 hours long, and consists of 40 lectures divided over 6 main chapters. The enrolment fee is offered at a huge discount at the moment, so take action while it lasts! Take me to the TIA Portal course, I´d like to check it out...   Thank you, and I hope to see you inside the course! Hans
  19. Siemens Field PG M3 - PLC Programming Rugged Laptop for Sale   Condition is Used   This is a Siemens Field PG for PLC Programming.   Purchased several years ago as part of an auction lot and has sat in my workshop since, I don't do much Siemens so this is up for sale - This is what I know about it :-   The machine has Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit installed (Machine has Windows 7 Ultimate on the base but been upgraded at some point) 8GB ram installed It has a windows XP VM installed which runs the Siemens Programming software (Virtual Box) There is a folder on the desktop containing the original installation files, so would be easy to return back to the host machine if required. All software appears to be licensed (see pics)    Has Step 7 and Step 5 installed   Negatives - Missing the back flap & Battery not being recognised thus not taking on charge (I think this is a just BIOS update needed but not looked into it too much)   In very good overall condition, a few light marks but that's about it, still looks very good.   Comes with the original branded rucksack    This was a really expensive bit of kit in its day and still stands up as an excellent PLC programming machine   Open to sensible offers - I am located in the UK so worldwide postage will have to be calculated seperately   I have powered it up and it works well with no issues found, the PLC software all seems to work and appears fully licensed but as I am not the original owner and don't know the provenance of the machine or licenses this machine is sold with no returns or warranty provided.

  24. Need help for FBD programming

    Good Day. Someone could help me to convert following ST code to FBD? I can make a program in ST language. I am trying to figure out how FBD works.  IF Var_1 THEN Var_2:=true; Var_1:=false; END_IF; IF Var_3 THEN Var_2:=False; Var_3:=false; END_IF;     Note: Var_1 and Var_3 are controlling from PC through Modbus TCP. 
  25. Hi! I have a question about programming. I want to place an input (X01) on the left vertical line, to allow the rest of the program running by an external switch. How can I place an input like that? I work on Gx works2 and using an Fx3g Plc (I used it once, but i can't find that program.)
