  1. Remote GOT (Visual Only)

    Good morning everyone! I have a GOT HMI all fully fuctional and working a treat, I have been asked to display one particular screen remotely in another part of the factory. I can only really use the IP network or perhaps some sort of wireless link. Does anyone have any good ideas. I thought use another GOT like a dumb device just looking at that one particular screen. But I dont think one would be able to get the GOT to share its stuff down the IP. I could perhaps use the other GOT to VNC but I am not sure of that as if we are not on the Home Screen that could be a problem.   Any help appreciated.        
  2. Is their any method like virtual port adding to advanced HMI and cx programmer to view input and output from advanced HMI to Cx-programmer.?    
  3. Hey guys, I did a quick search here and didn't come up with anything, so hoping I'm not asking something that has already been answered. I'm looking at automating an existing plant which currently has zero controls, so starting from scratch. The process isn't complicated but the equipment is a bit spread out over a two story facility. We're thinking about using a CompactLogix 1769-L32, physically located as central as possible, with ten four-slot 1734 Point I/O blocks. My concern is that many Allen Bradley controllers limit the number of I/O modules you can add to the project. Like some 1756 controllers are limited to 30 local and remote I/O modules, CompactLogix controllers may be limited to 16 local and who knows how many remotes, etc. I can't find anything that spells it out explicitly in the Design Considerations Manual. The CompactLogix 5370 User Manual only says it supports, "a limited number of Point I/O modules that can be used as local modules". Nothing about networked modules. The CompactLogix Selection Guide clearly defines the number of network nodes, but nothing about the number of modules. Does anyone have any direct experience with this much Point I/O in a CompactLogix environment? I'm thinking that we're in an age of counting nodes, rather than modules but don't want to order the hardware without being 100% sure.
  4. SLC 5/03 rs232 connection problem

    I have an SLC 5/03 that Im trying to get the program from. I have a 1747-uic. Im not getting anything to show up in rslinx and I suspect the channel 0 is configured for ASCII because theres an HMI plugged into it. Also the rj45 connection is broken because someone used a crossover ethernet cable...lol. is my best bet to try and fix/replace the 1747-uic? I have an offline copy of a program from a different machine that uses a 'similar' setup and the CH.0 -System is configured for DF1 full duplex,19200,CRC and CH.0 - user is ASCII 19200 baud. Any Ideas? I was using the 3 wire db9 connector running from the HMI to the PLC. I unplugged it from the HMI and used it with the 1747, Should I use a standard DB9 cable with a null modem adapter?
  5. Good Morning, I connect using a TCPSocket a remote node with my NJ501-1300. In order to test communication with the remote node I use a telnet communication and send from it messages to the remote node: it work correctly opening the connection and then sending all messages I want; the connection will close only at the end of the communication session. WHAT HAPPEN ON NJ? On NJ Open connection whit remote node; Connection is open; Send first message to remote node; Receive correct answer from remote node; Send another ore the same message to remote node; Receive an unknown command answer from remote node. WHY??? To solve previous problem I need to: Close the open connection; Wait the time to reopen it; Reopen connection; send the message; receive the correct answer from the remote node; Close connection Wait the time to reopen it; Reopen connection; send the message; receive the correct answer from the remote node; close connection and so on... Could someone help me to solve this problem opening the connection only once and then close it at the end of the end of communication session?!   THANK YOU
  6. TCP connection

    I need to connect a A/B 5370 or 1756 to a PC and communicate over TCP/IP and be able to read and write input/outputs. What features does A/B provide? I would prefer to write in C/C++ but can also consider Structured Text - if it supports the standard socket type functions.

  9. Hello All,  Am a bit new to practical PLC applications. I was trying to configure a Phoenix Contact I/O module (1452916) on a MicroLogix 1100 PLC but it kept faulting out with the fault light RED. It would say "Major Error Halt S:1/13". The error description says I/O mismatch. The error code is 187h (see attachment). The Phoenix module has a cable with 19 pin positions for the 8 input. I connected the pin 17 and 18 to 24 volts and  0 volts respectively. Then because I was using input 5 I connected the pink wire to PLC input (I/1) 24volts and the White/Yellow wire to the PLC common.  On the I/O configuration on RSLogix 500, I used "Other" ( See attachment) but did not know the vendor details. Could anyone help me with the steps on how to communicate with the module? I have also attached the PLC program I was running. Thanks        
  10. Hi dears i have one client and 21 servers i want to eatablish a connection between this client and servers is there limitation for access servers? i read that one client can access to 12 servers only is it true? what is the best way to connect this client to 21 servers? best regards
  11. Genst,   Could You please advise how can I connect to CJ1M CPU12 - shown in attached picture. DB9 port is used for communication with remote input/outpus rack.

I want to connect to CX-programmer to be able to online troubleshoot PLc program.   thanks in advance. tomasz  
  12. Janitza UMG96RM RS485 Bus

    Dear All.     i'm a new user for Janitza. and i have issue related to RS485 actually, not to Janitza itself. i have one device (UMG 96RM), where there is only RS485 (2 pin only), no RS232, no USB, No Ethernet port. i'm trying simply to connect the device to the PC, via (USB to RS485) convertor, but i'm not able to do it. for me, this is the first time i'm see (RS485 2 Pins), usually there is Ground signal also. anyway, could you please somebody help how to connect? shall i add a pull up & pull down resistors at the device? and what is the power supply i must use? noting that, i tried many things, but still nothing happened.   Appreciate if somebody can help   Best regards.  
  13. Cannot get Online - CPM2C

    Hello Ladies and Gents, Im quite new to working with Omron. I am struggling very much to get online with an Omron CPM2C-S110C. It has a CIF01 card also. I hear this PLC is quite an old one. I have referenced the manual on 'connecting a computer running support software' and double checked I have the correct cables. The ones I am using and the way I am connecting is:-   PLC Peripheral slot >> CS1W-CN118 >> XW2Z-200S-CV >> serial to USB >> Laptop Checking on Device Manager, I have all the drivers installed, the comms ports are correctly numbered yet I still cannot connect. There are 4 dip switches on the top right hand side of the CPU and all are swiched off. I have called Omron Tech Support and they said to ignore them in this instance. The RS232C port on the CIF01 is used by a barcode scanner so there is no means to connect through that (I have been told) I feel that I have been through setting and checked in CX-Programmer and nothing looks obscure. Please offer me any ideas you may have. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
  14. Good Evening, using the Ethernet Built-in LAN I need to program 4 power supply. I'm tryng to program the firstone but even if I can send the correct command to the power supply I always recive a 2006 error on SKTTCPRCP function Is there someone that can help me in order to not receive the 2006 error code? Have I to respect a procedure? It seems that at the second connection time the socket remain closed. Thank you!
  15. So I need to find a way for a Mitsubishi PLC to communicate with a PC - ideally sending a binary number through ethernet to a PC program that reads it and tells the PC which files to open. I think I can create the PC program with C++ or Visual Basic without too much struggle. But I am unsure of how to get that binary ID from the PLC and into the PC program. I have done a little bit of research on MX Component and MX Sheet, and also MC Protocol but all seem a bit outdated and/or just over my head and I need some better explanation - I'm pretty new to PLC and programming. I feel like it shouldn't be terribly difficult to get 1 external binary number into a PC program. I'm sure someone has done essentially the same transfer and I just want some ideas. -What kind of connection support do I need to transfer data (Likely just a D-bit) from a PLC to PC? -How would that/those bit(s) be accessed in Visual Basic or C++? I'm assuming some type of library function that will call the value

  17. Remote Run/stop on FX0

    Hello, I'm working on a project where I'm trying to create Remote Acces to old PLC's. The Mitsubishi FX0-20MR-ES is one of those PLC's. I got the remote access working by using a Serial to Ethernet converter, but I just found out that FX0 serie can only be put in Run or Stop mode by manually flipping the RUN/STOP switch on the PLC. I was wondering if there is any software solution that enables me to "simulate" the stop function while the switch is still set on RUN. That way I can still program the PLC from a remote location. I know this is possible with some PLC's by turning off a whole registry in the software, that way the PLC thinks it is in STOP while it's actually still running. I just don't know how this would work with the FX0. I hope someone can give me the solution I'm looking for. I'm looking forward to the reactions, Jimmy
  18. Hi, I have a a few substations and I´d like to have a local SCADA in each of them. What is the best scada to use with reasonable price? Does anyone know if there is a solution without the need to have a PC for each substation? Thanx
  19. Is there any way of viewing a remote Proface GP or LT screen inside a second GP or LT screen? I want to do this to avoid creating and loading duplicate screens. Essentially it would be like using GP Viewer-EX where the PC is replaced with another GP or LT unit.
  20. I have a cpu33 that I had issues with a bad battery and it loaded from memory card.  The version on the card was old so I decided to download the latest version from 2 days ago to it.  When I did, I lost communication through ethernet.   Can't connect through usb either.   The thing that baffles me is that I can ping the plc at the address and I get a reply.   Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I am not familiar with omron plc's at all.  Also on the display it cycles through Er HE 1P 07.
  21. PC-PLC CP1E - USB-to-SERIAL cable

    Hi,   I have a self-bought usb-serial cable converter for CP1E. Currently can't connect to my PLC using PC. CX-One says "Failed to the PLC". I am supposedly to use "SYSMAC WAY" as my Network Type in PLC settings?   EDIT: The CPU type is N30   I've checked the following settings: 1) COM number is correct ( as checked from windows Device Manager side) 2) Cable driver is installed, there is no "unknown" driver in my windows Device Manager 3) My RS232C LED in PLC is not lighted up.   Any other suggestions to check settings ive missed out would help, other than buying a new cable for the moment.   Regards, Summerstone
  22. Flex I/O Rack

    I am in the middle of doing a retrofit for a old PLC5 and i decided to upgrade it to a Control Logix. With how much I/O I was needing the price of the system was going to be very pricey. So I decided to use my main rack as a control logix and use Flex I/O for my remote racks. I have never put together a Flex I/O rack so I am unsure of what I need for this rack other than my I/O modules and a communication module. Could someone give me a list of what is needed for these systems? 
  23. I have multiple PVP 1500's on the same network. From the one in my control room i need to be able to see what user is logged into what HMI. How would I address the system tag of another HMI on the same network would I use the IP address? thank you for any help in advance
  24. Was wondering if anyone can tell me whether it is possible to use the Red Lion Graphite displays to remotely log into your system via Ethernet for programming.  Can it be used as a bridge to other Ethernet devices connected to it?
  25. I recently purchased the SIEMENS CONNECTION KIT (6ES6400-1PC00-0AA0) with its corresponding serial cable to connect to a MICROMASTER 440. I connect my RS232-USB cable to the serial cable. But I can not connect in any way! What do I do wrong? 1. In the micromaster 440 I put the following USS configuration parameters (USS = serial communication):    p2010 = 6    p2011 = 0    p2012 = 2    p2013 = 127 2. I put the DIP of the Connection Kit (Ref. 6ES6400-1PC00-0AA0)  1 ON, 2 OFF, as indicated in the manual.    I connect the connection kit module with its serial cable to my RS232-USB cable. And I connect the USB to my PC. 3. Open "Set PG / PC interface" and select PC COM-Port.USS.1 4. I go to the properties and I am selected COM1 without problems. 5. But I do the transmission speed test and can not find anything. 6. Also in the diagnosis of PC COM-Port.USS.1 I do the test and can not find anything. Supposedly my RS232 cable is correct (I have tried several tests). And the configuration of the COM port in "device manager" also looks correct. What am I doing wrong?? Zhanks!
