  1. Hi  I want to use in sysmac the number of the active page in nb designer. for example if I am in page number 5, the program in sysmac recovers in a variable the value 5 THANKS
  2. My Compact Logix PLC is connected to my computer by USB. When I try to create a new view designer file, I can not connect my view designer with my controller. "OK" button of the HMI to controller path remains INACTIVE. Please see the attached.  How can i solve this issue?
  3. String shift register

    Hello all thanks to bits n bytes's date and time to string converter here https://forums.mrplc.com/index.php?/topic/31786-write-plc-time-as-text-to-memory-card/#comment-149418 i have made a nice string output function block for the PLC date and time that i will attach. I'm now wandering how to shift this into a memory card as well as display it on a NB screen. for the NB screen i think i can just used a text box to display the code using 8 words, i sadly dont have a CJ2M plc with me at the moment so i cannot test. for the memory card i have not used these at all yet, is there a special shift register for strings? i cant seem to find it. i will be using this simply for a checklist on the HMI where an operator goes through the list of tasks to perform and ticks them off on the HMI which then logs the time and date they were completed at. do i need to create a shift register using MOV$ with a @destination and increase the count of the destination witch each input? Thanks in advance Date_and_time_string_convert.cxf
  4. This is my first post so let me know if there is anything wrong with my post. I am learning Studio 5000 right now for an internship and created a simple project involving a pushbutton and some LEDs. Now I am trying to create an HMI for it in View Designer. My problem now is that I cannot establish a connection to the project because I do not have a physical HMI connected to my plc (Logix 5380). I can't find any way to emulate an HMI module so that I can get it to run. When I emulate my HMI project it tells me "Unable to reach controller TEST" where test is the name of my plc program. I added a module that matched the model in my HMI program (panelview 5510 2715p-t7wd) which I arbitrarily picked at random. But when I go into references and try to add HMI to Controller Path it does not show up (I'm assuming it's because it is faulting in the plc program since it doesn't actually exist). Is there not a way to emulate an HMI or add a virtual HMI to my studio 5000 program that I could connect to from View Designer?
  5. HI everyone i was wondering if i could connect a cp1l-el to 2 different NB screens running 2 different programs. we have a main line HMI which displays the health of the entire line with its own cj2m plc, we also have a machine which is part of the line that has its own plc(CP1l-EL) and HMI. is it possible for me to include the cp1l in the main lines HMI so that it can display the status of that machine? or will it cause issues because it already has a program attached to it. i dont know exactly how the NB program works does it just read the bits of data it needs to or is it constantly looking at the whole plc data list?
  6. Hello, can we do the simulation between sysmac and nb designer thanks
  7. I have one project on which the offline test works nicely. However if I "Save as" and give it another name, the offline test stops working. I click on offline test, the loading hourglass appears for a few seconds, then nothing happens... Does anyone know why, and/or how to get offline test working again? I am running NB Designer version 1.3. I always compile before trying the offline test.
  8. Hello,  Sorry I'm newbie with omron plc programming. I'm wondering how can i simulate plc program on sysmac studio with Hmi on Nb designer without hardware. because I want testing my program and my plc and hmi connection before buying hardware. Thanks in advance !
  9. Create TCP/UDP Socket

    I'm trying to send an int over TCP using a MSG Socket,  Compactlogix ==> Arduino Ethernet Shield I have set up TCP communication between two Arduino Uno's using Ethernet shield. I've set up the one as a server, the other as a client. server IP: 192.168.1.21 port 23. If the client is connected it reads incoming data as a byte or an array of bytes. The data between the two has been verified to work. I'm now trying to transition the communications between a compact logix-L32E. I'm looking to send a byte (or int being as there's no byte data type) from the Compactlogix to the Arduino using TCP. To my understanding I need to use a socket create, open, read/write, close. The manual to do this is vague as a step by step procedure. Does anyone have an example code for socket programming? I can open rs500, rs5000, and studio 5000 programs. If I can open a file to use as a reference I can translate it on my own. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. 
  10. HI all i was wondering if it might be possible to edit the name of a word switches state. I'm creating blank presets for a machine lets say 1-10, i would like to use the drop down word switch which would display preset 1-10. is it then possible to edit preset 1's name to something like "8mm diameter" by using the notepad function on nb designer and directing that to some location on the plc? any idea or different methods would be great, or even if its not possible. thanks
  11. I have a purchased Machine that came with a Siemens LOGO 8.FSR PLC (Smart Relay). Generally we use Allen Bradley or Mitsubishi. Anyway, we need to communicate data between the LOGO and an Allen Bradley Compact Logix.  I do not desire to add an additional network to the AB but as best i can tell the LOGO is exclusively Modbus TCP/IP. Has anyone come across a similar situation?  I look online and did find an  Anybus module that claims to be able to link them together.  Looking for anyone who has faced this challenge and succeeded, or failed.   Thanks
  12. Hi. In GT Designer 3 i am using a template for motor control and status in a panel. Due to changes in control philosophy a button was added for STOP. This has been added and registered in the template. But how do I also update the objects? Should this have been done automatically if I had done it correctly? Cheers  
  13. GT Designer 3: Label import error

    Hello. When trying to import the labels from GX3, i keep getting an error saying the project cannot be opened. Has anyone encountered this error? Cheers
  14. setting date cp1l

    Hi all im currently using the DATE instruction to set the PLC's date and time via the HMI which is an NB7W which i have working but i am currently setting each byte of the words being used in DATE by using numerical inputs in NB designer and entering integer and decimal to set these bits in DATE and its a bit ugly to say the least. is there a way on nb designer to only modify bytes or am i going to have to used full words on nb designer and use MOVD in cx programmer to assign them to their correct byte CURRENT SETUP always on DATE using d50=d53  
  15. Hello everyone,  Someone know, how to read timer data from omron PLC CP1E in HMI NB3Q-TW00B? I tried write macros for HMI program, but I have some error about macro in program. How I understand, this HMI model don't support data reading from plc timer TIM in cx programmer? But how I can write macros and set it for recognizing in HMI?   
  16. Hi ya,  can someone please advise if it is possible to add a text box that the user can enter a name / description to.  I am hoping the user can select the text box and a pop up keyboard will appear for them to enter a description on a magelis hmi.  I look forward to your advise. 
  17. Pls any one help me to simulate my omron HMI program with CPM 2A PLC  Means help me to communicate cx designer with CPM 2A plc Or with NT- series  support tool
  18. Has anyone come across this error on windows 10 with fonts freshly installed and NB Designer freshly installed
  19. Hello. I can't find any related bits wich would indicate PLC offline / online status. I'm using two PLC's. PLC0 Modbus TCP (Ethernet) PLC1 Modbus RTU (Serial) Please help me to get online status. BR, Andrej. 
  20. Axis Attribute Error

    Hello All, First time working with PLC. Get the hang of it from stuff I researched. Having an issue with an axis setup for a servo motor.  When I try to do an auto tune it gives me an error that axis is not configured.  Source: Config Fault    Condition: MotorDeviceCode- INvalid attribute      ACtion: Immediate Stop Fault Entry: Type 8, code 9 subcode: 1314 stopaction: 4 Statechange: 3   I was wondering what am I doing wrong? Any leads or source information I can use to solve this. 
  21. Signal Tower Error Code(s)

    Hi, got a mental block lol.  Got a machine we are modifying, currently got most of the code in place. Working on a fault routine now. This machine doesn't have an HMI or wide array of PL. Nothing major just a simple vision system check. Currently have 6 faults that will stop the cycle running. I'm wanting to have the beacon light (Red light) blink for the cause of the fault. For example: Scenario 1- Fault stop for bottle check NG:  (two) .5 sec blinks -  2 sec red light off -  (two) .5 sec blinks ..... repeat  Scenario 2- Fault stop for bottle check NG and reject sensor blocked:  (two) .5 sec blinks -2 sec red light off - (three) .5 sec blinks - 2 sec red light off....... repeat I have the code a few different ways but it looks "dirty". Any suggestions? Thanks in advance  
  22. NB screen freezing

    Hi all has anyone ever come across a NB series screen freezing when a screen change is attempted? i have a NB7W which when told to change to screen 58 or 59 via a function button or via a PLC instruction it freezes the HMI and it needs to be restarted. have i hit some screen limit or something? they only thing i can really think of it has too many graphics, it contains 6 bitmap images and about 12 graphic buttons/lamps
  23. is there a way of stacking screens in NB designer? ive asked question similar in the cx programmer forum but it might be better asked here. for instance if i have a program that displays an error screen when lets say the motor is overloaded but then the air pressure is also  cut off so that screen then pops up, we currently have a system that states when there are no errors to display the main screen with a DIFU command. however this system doesnt work very well if multiple problems occur it will only display the most recent one and when that is fixed the screen will not change. is there a way to make screens "overlap" and be able to close them individually or just any methods you have used that might be better at controlling the screen for this sort of application? thanks anyone who can help
  24. Hi guys, I installed new MachineExpert v1.2 and Vijeo 6.2.9 on Win10 machine. When connecting simulation PLC to Vijeo to test my application everything is good. I go to PLC and check the nodename (see the pic attached) which I put in my Vijeo application and everything works. Issue is, because of my hard drive capacity I am forced to work via VM (but this is my preffered way also because of number of PLC softwares used). When I installed from the same installer (everything same as my local Win10) on Win7 VM when I run simulation I get empty space where the PC simulator should be visible which nodename I should type in Vijeo. Also I noticed when going to gateway management console in VM the process is active, same parameters as in host machine. Turning off the gateway on the VM turns it off as well on the host. Is there a known problem of connecting to simulator on VM? Or win10? Unfortunately I don't have Win10 VM to try right now.. Anyone can help? Much appreciated!
  25. Hi all. I would like to get in contact with whoever can help me in my particular problem. I hold an HNC level in robot and plc programming but for different reasons I'm still trying to get on the industry but is being a hard task. It's been a while that I'm trying to get into some companies by agencies and they are always asking for something that I can't provide like two years experience. Basically I'm writing here trying to find someone that can help me in anyway. Currently I live in Shrewsbury and it will be complicated to get relocated but nothing is impossible if things are interesting for both sides. Thanks to all even for read it and just consider the possibility to help me on any way.
