  1. control panel for sale

    Hi all, Hope everyone is doing well. I'm currently in the process of starting a home based control panel shop. I have about 8 years of control panel building experience and about 2-3 years of being shop team lead/design engineering. I have been planning this for years and now I have my shop full of necessary tools and material to build small/medium sized panels. I have gone through all the training and examination(which was not easy) to be able to produce UL508A approved panels. My goal is to produce a steady work load with great quality. Now I just need an opportunity with customers which I find to be the hard part. I have been contacting local industries but haven't had any luck. If anyone out there is seeking control panels built at a good competitive rate please advice.
  2. We are seeking a Control Panel builder in the SE Michigan area. We can supply the drawings, components, enclosure, etc. Typical panels include PLC, HMI, VFDs, and standard components. Please contact us if interested. We can send more details as needed. We typically need 20-30 panels in a year.
  3. Problem: I am getting a control sync fault on 2 recently installed kinetix 5500 but only when my programing PC is connected to the machine network.  Install and setup all went great over a 5 day period.  Then all of a sudden I started to get this fault. Sometimes 100 times in an hour.  As soon as I go offline, and unplug my PC the problem goes away.  I have also tried another PC connected to the Machine network and still get the same result.  Sometimes machine can run for hours with my PC connected with no problem.  I do not have to be online with controller for fault to occur. Setup: I have the 2 K5500's ethernet ports daisy chained together, and then connected via shielded CAT 6 cable directly to port 2 of the Compact Logix Controller Coarse Update is set to 3.5ms and utilization's are at 33% and below.(I have tried the default 2ms with same results) Ethernet modules are configured with FW rev 7.013. Machine network is isolated.(not connected to plant network or internet) Equipment: Compact logix L33ERM Running version 30.01. There are a total of four servos in this system all running over ethernet.  2 Kinetix 350's(not affected), and 2 kinetix 5500's. I have tried: separate ethernet cables for each drive ran through a switch different ethernet cables resetting coarse update speed connecting a different PC for programming   I am just not sure where else to go with this.  Thanks in advance for any help.  
  4. Hi All, I'm new to using PLC, and my background is majorly programming. I am learning how to control a PLC over the internet using HTTP or TCP/IP. I have a Mitsubishi PLC Melsec FX-5U 32MR and my requirement is, I want to send create a setup where the PLC works more like a Client on the network and reads values from the server (which is a computer). The outputs on the PLC are controlled by the values on the database in server.  So, lets assume I have a value like this on the server "1,0,0,1,0,1", it should translate like below: Y0 = 1 Y1 = 0 Y2 = 0 Y3 = 1 Y4 = 0 Y5 = 1 Is there any guidance where I can read through and learn how to do this. I would prefer doing it by ST programming and not Ladder.
  5. Logic issue, or problem with Control Expert 14.1?   Pop-up box, followed by Control Expert crash.  PLC seems to be running fine. "Control Expert Fatal Error" "The thread tried to divide an integer value by an integer divisor of zero" Anybody seen this before?  Corrupt file?  Reboot?  Uninstall/reinstall?
  6. Hi,   I am attempting to download a Vijeo designer application to a remotely situated Magelis HMI over the cloud by means of a VPN. Vijeo designer's built-in help indicates that this is possible and has provided an example.  BTW, I am using Vijeo Designer basic v1.1 & the HMI model is GXU3512.   However, I find the fields for router IP and TCP port nos. all deactivated  
  7. Hello Everyone I am new on this forum. As an electrician in Denmark, I have just gotten a fountain to maintain. The control cabinet and pumps are all underground in a couple of wells.   There are a lot of monitoring and time is spend / wasted lifting the heavy manhole covers and driving to and from the wells. I would like to install a plc to monitor the few settings I really need. Are there some with experience of how and what type of equipment?  I am considering a siemens LOGO with a communications module and just buy a sim card.  Is it better to use prepaid 2G, 3G or 4G or only data sim card?  Also with or without pin code? It is not possible to establish a wired communication connection but the wells have of course 230 V mains and is very close to a phone tower. Yours faithfully Morten Lund
  8. Motion Control

    Hi Everyone.   I have been tasked with changing out an older Flex Drive servo drive to a more modern Micro Flex drive in a machine that has an Omron CQM1H-CPU51 PLC.  I'm having a few issues but hope that i can gain some clarity around at least one of the hurdles Im facing from here. Biggest issue for me at this moment is My work hasn't yet purchased a programming lead for this PLC (or even the bits required to make one myself) but i have a feeling the control for the Servo is done via motion control in the PLC.  Question here is, if changing from one servo drive to another type, will the motion control code need to be updated to work with the new servo drive?  I have very limited experience with motion control itself at this stage so I'm a bit lost when it comes to these sort of details. Regards Kiwi_man82

  12. Hi guys I have an control logix plc im looking for a module which is the same as 1769-ascii module. I know that module is for compact logix. Unfortunately i didnt find a good one for that purpose.  Anybody can help with that ? Thanks ahead.         
  13. Hello, I would like to know the best option for adding remote I/O stations to either the R32CPU or R32ENCPU. I like the look of the Mitsubishi NZ2FT / Weidmuller u-remote slice I/O. I believe they are the same product. There are CC-Link IE TSN network couplers for these systems. Would either of these be a good choice? I see the R32CPU has a port supporting CC-Link IE Field Basic. Can I communicate with CC-Link IE TSN devices using this port? The R32ENCPU add a couple of ports which can support regular TCP/IP communications, CC-Link IE Field and CC-Link IE Control. Do these ports also support communications with CC-Link IE TSN devices? Is there a difference between CC-Link IE Field Basic and CC-Link IE Field? Thanks,
  14. ello I have a powerflex 400 of 25HP for a 60amp 25HP motor, the motor have a belt that move the clarifier of milk. It is a process that requires strength to move.So I try with the motor without the clarifier the vdf works well with a constant amp of 12 to the max of 50hz that is set up with a ramp of 600 sec.Then I try with the belt that move the clarifier... The vdf start the ramp with a wird amp behavior like 10 sec 100 amp and then 13 amp for 10 sec.When it gets to 50hz (the max) it starts the same behavior 13 amp when it reach the max RPM and when it decrease a little bit it gets 100 amp to get to the max RPM again.In this vdf powerflex 400 I didn't see the % of torque options that the last one Fuji had.Someone told me that powerflex 400 is not for power processed, they are focus in pumps and blowers more alike, and that I need a vdf vectorial like a powerflex 725.What do you think...PD: as the 100 amp is like 10 sec the protections dont show up. PD: I made a try with water and hot water, in that point with the max hz  (and 6800rpm) when the hot water start to flow the amp gets constant in 75 amp, but the motor dosnt get to the 6800 rpm again it just keep trying in 6700rpm and it mantains the 75amp triggering the motor protection for overload.
  15. How long  could be INT array. For example can I build INT[365] or DINT[365]? When I use more than [32] my controller fails. Thanks. 
  16. Remote Omron and Yaskawa control

    Information : On the websites - https://abrysshost.web.app (and https://abrysshost .firebaseapp.com ) detailed information about the construction of remote diagnostics and control (Iot) systems for control systems of objects based on OMRON and Yaskawa controllers. The information is presented in Russian and English.
  17. Hi everyone, To explain the problem a little bit: I have 2 systems that are equal, they have 1 PLC, 1 Inverter and 1 Servo Axis (Image01). The devices are connected via EtherCat. The thing here is tht in these systems the PLC and Servo Axis is the same but the inverter is different. My goal is to have the same project on both systems and depending on the inverter detected use the correct program. What worked: If I add the 2 Inverters and 2 Servo Axis on the project on different nodes (Image02), I can detect which is present using the variable _EC_EntrySlavTb[n]. My issue is that if I want to make more replicas of the systems using different inverters I will eventually hit the Axis Number limit for the PLC while in reality I am only using on Servo Axis at a time. What I wanted: I would like to be able to control 1 Servo Axis with 2 different inverters (only one active per PLC) (Image03). What I tried: The axis parameters can be set using a variable of the type _sAXIS_PARAM, however it seems that the option to change the axis basic settings is not available (Manual: NJ/NX-series Motion Control Instructions Reference Manual (W508) page 5-58) (Image04). The axis basic settings is where the definition of the output device plus control words are set (Image05). Is there a work around to solve this issue? I would really like to avoid having to manually change the output device for the Servo Axis every time I make an update on all the systems.   Best Regards, BR

  20. simple motion cam curve

    Good afternoon, I have a problem in an application for a rotary knife, I'm using a MR-JE-B servo to make this movement, while my material is powered by an inverter connected to a modbus rs485 network, with a 5v encoder connected directly in motion. I'm having some problems and I think it's my cam curve. I have a very high refeneration, and the system doesn't obey the size of the length I want the cut. It always cuts the same size, regardless of the configuration I use, it always cuts to 245mm. Put some photos, how are my settings. Grateful in advance, if anyone can help me.

  21. 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.        
  22. NX1P2 Motion Control

    Hi:       I need to change an old PLC  with NX1p2  to control 3 servo motor by means of Analog Outputs couple with encoders, My job is to change the PLC only. So the servo drives and drivers are untouchable (No budget and involve too much mechanical works).   I observed that Sysmac Sttudio Axes setting has this: Servo Axes, Encoder axes, Virtual Servo Axis and Virtual Encoder Axes.   I believe the Encoder Axes couple with Analog Output is able to to do the Job? If so, what function block should i use? If no, do any body have a suggestion of any function block i can use? Thanks  
  23. CJ1M con CJ1W-EIP21 a ControlLogix

    Hello I am trying to communicate a CJ1M with a CJ1W-EIP21 Card, with a Logix Control, but I have not been successful, what I am looking for is to read data, from the OMRON and see it in the Logix Control, but I have not been able to establish communication, I am looking for someone You will already have a functional example, with the backups of both PLC'S, to be able to observe how they made the configuration. Thank you for your support Greetings
  24. 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.
  25. I'm having trouble with some Powerflex 525 drives. Right now what I need to do is run them manually from the keypad to test conveyor belts.  Is there a way to do this and if so how?   Thanks in advance.
