  4. Dear automation friends,   I just like to put some issue in the clear that I have seen no reported issues on yet, but it is killing me. Maybe some other people in the world also have this issue. We use Windows 2016 on FT View v10. All patched with all compatible patches (both Windows and Rockwell). We install this software a lot but we only got this issue seen/reported on windows 2016. I never had a Rockwell issue that took so long without getting it fixed. Support is also not really helping.   We just have a setup of Windows 2016 with 2x redundant FT View Servers and about 10x Clients with each 4x screens. The HMI clients run perfectly but every few days, 1 application (on 1 of the 4 screens) just crashes "DisplayClient.exe application crash...". That closes the HMI interface and then the users needs to click on the hmi.cli file to launch that screen again. Refering to ntdll.dll in the windows events. No additional info except for the windows error reporting that is unable to contact the internet to send the crash report. Looking in the FT Diagnostics, it happens while the operator is operating the hmi screen. Not when there is no activity.   We reinstalled 1 client completely from scratch, including the OS, domain integration, everything brandnew. And 10 hours later: crash on 1 of the 4x screens. In a control room with almost 30 screens, this is very annoying and unacceptable.   If you have a similar issue or got the issue fixed, please let me know. If you have a similar issue and don't have it fixed, we can share more detailed logs.   Best Regards,
  5. Please could you assist with the software required to download data tables from 4 off DIRIS A10 Multifunction Meters into TM221CE40R Logic Controller via TMC2SL1 Comms Cartridge using Modbus Protocol over RS485.

  9. Hi all I have a project where i am building a bread softness tester.  To do this i am using a smc electric actuator and an A&D scale. The electric actuator will push down on a slice onto an A&D scale.  A micro830 plc is then reading the data from the scale and storing the real variable in an array 80values long.  I would like to display on the hmi (panelview800) the peak/maximum value in the array. I am struggling on how to do this though and have not found much information online. any help would be much appreciated Thanks in advance Trevor
  10. Please help find a controller. We require a controller for 8 nema 23 stepper motors. Must have pulse direction and at least 8 axis or more (16 would be nice). Must have kinematics for linear and circular motion. Must be able to use gcode such as G01 X10 Y10 Z10 A10 B10 C10 U10 V10. Must have axis parameters for all 8 axis eg velocity, rotations, etc. We also need the drivers. Must be reasonably priced under $1000 or so. We found Dynomotion KFLOP which can do 6 axis and we kind of made it work for 8 axis. It is super cheap at around $250 plus KStep drivers so under $1000 total with free software, unfortunately, it can not do kinematics for 8 axis.

  18. Hello everyone, Working in Automation for the first time as a Co-op student so i'm fairly new to PLC's and the Automation field in general. I've recently been tasked with converting a RSlogix 5 program from an old PLC 5 project into a Studio5000 project. I referenced the manual (I'll attach link below), and had no issues using the RSlogix Project Migrator tool that I downloaded off the Rockwell website. My problem is that once I convert the program, my I/O tags that were originally sequenced in octets(0-7, 10-17, 20-27, ...) from the RSlogix 5 program, are switched into a sequential scheme in Studio5000 that just increments them in order (1, 2, 3, 4, ...). I hope this make sense, but basically the first seven tags match between the projects, but then I:010 in rslogix 5 is equivalent to I[8] in 5000, I:011 is I[9], and so on and so forth. Has anyone had this issue before and found a way to have Studio5000 keep the original octet scheme? I don't see this normally being an issue, but the customer has specifically asked that the I/O tag names be kept the same as the original program. Thanks for any help. - Ben   Converting PLC-5 reference manual link:

  21. Square Wave Problem With Micrologix

    Hello all, this is my first post. I am using an AB Micrologix 1400 (1766-L32BXB Ser C FW 21). I was trying to generate a pulse train using the PTO instruction. I have modified PTOX funct. file. The ladder is just a simple XIO followed by PTO, (The Quick Start ladder from 1766-RM001). When I looked at the output waveform on my oscilloscope, I noticed that it wasn't a square wave. I decided to run it at several different frequencies to see how the wave form would change. At 10Hz i got a square wave. As I increased the frequency the falling edge became sloped and almost horizontal. Is this how the output should behave? The data sheet indicates a max frequency of 100kHz, but at frequencies over 150 Hz. The wave form looks like the output of SMPS. 
  22. 1756-L55/A Controller

    Respected Friends, Good day. I face a serious issue please help me to fix the problem.  We have a 1756-L55/A controller with 1756/M13 A memory card. after 2 or 3 months the program washout and the LED status on the controller are following 1. RUN --- SOLID GREEN 2. I/O--- OFF 3. RS232 --- SOILD RED 4. OK --- SOLID RED 5. BAT-- OFF 6. FORCE-- OFF  At that time CONTROL NET MODULES OK Light for Chanel A and Chanel B are also blinking and communication not established via control net and serial port AB-DF1. I switched off the power supply and after 10 second again power up the controller then OK LED becomes solid green.  i download the program and its run fine. But the problem is still there. In the controller properties the major fault shows  TYPE 01 [ POWER UP FAULT] CODE 60 [NON RECOVERABLE FAULT] what are the possible reason for wash out the program from the memory?  At that time version 16.03 firmware installed and the rslogix program convert from version 10 to version 16.03.  Is 1756 L555/A with 1756/M13 A support the version 10 firmware? i ask because the original program is in version 10 if its supported then i update the firm ware and download the original program.   Hope you will help me in this issue. Regards
  23. Hello I have a scenario that's been bugging me for some time now. The scenario consists of a Micrologix 1400 that I need to control it's output from modbus/tcp. In detail what I really need is to be able to manipulate the O0:0 through modbus/tcp. The PLC would be the master and I would be the slave that triggers the connection to the master. I'm using a Modbus-Client on my PC and that should be the slave. Any idea as to how I can manage that? Currently I can send data to the master but everything is "stored" on B10 and I have no idea how I could write directly on O0. Thanks a bunch guys. PS: I'm borderline noob. 
  24. Good day, I would like to extract the FT View SE Alarm Log. We currently have got a Excel spreadsheet set up with a connection to the FTAE SQL Database.  When I refresh the data, Excel give an error telling me that the data is more than what can be displayed in a spreadsheet. So it then discards the latest data. I have tried setting a database limit in the Factory Talk Administration console to only keep the last 60 days worth of data but it does not seem to take effect. I get data from January 2017 up to 15 October 2018. Is there a way to configure the ODBC connection in excel to only give me the data for the last 30 days or is there someone that can help me to limit the size of the database? I have attached the current connection config.
  25. Hello I am  a Robot Programmer. Fortunately  I would be beginning the PLC Programmer Interview Process. From Initial CV Screening and first round of Interview. Screening was easier. But unfortunately I am not good with PLC tech questions apart from that is involved with Robot Programming. I need a few questions to judge whether the applicant is faking his experience or does he has the qualities. If any PLC Programmers can help me, It would be a great help for me.   Thank You
