  1. Siemens Logo PLC

    Hello Experts Can someone please tell me if Communicating software for Siemens Logo PLC is downloadable? Regards
  2. Ok I'll try a different angle of attack. I have acquired an S7-1212c unit. It is just too new for my TIA portal, which is V 15.1 The new PLC I have has firmwear 4.5 the TIA portal I have only supports 4.3, I get some errors regarding synconization etc. and it's like there are some tins that don't work. how do I update the TIA portal to the correct firmware I've tried updating the HSP files but it doesn't change anything https://support.industry.siemens.com/cs/document/54163658/how-do-you-update-the-hardware-catalog-in-tia-portal-?dti=0&lc=en-DE
  3. Hey there, we want to upgrade some of our old TSX87 PLCs to new Schneider M580. My boss gave me an order to make a plan. My basic idea is to only use a M580 processor and some communication cards. For the I/O we want to use some Beckhoff bus couplers. So we got the possibility to convert our old Grafcet to new ones via software by Schneider. But if **** hits the fan we only have to change the processor and can use another system like Siemens or Beckhoff without changing the I/O devices. My problem now is, that i don't know what bus i should use. I can't find many informations about the supported busses that the M580 is using or i can't find informations if a specific bus is working with it. I would prefer the Ethercat bus by Beckhoff. Can somebody say if it is working with the M580 processors or do i need to use some special communication card for it? Maybe someone used it already in this combination.   Sorry for the bad english. Greetings from Germany
  4. Hello! I am using PLC TM221CE16R and SoMachine Basic v1.6. My PLC has firmware 1.6.0.1. I use analog expansion bus, input module TM3AI8. Everything was working fine for 2 hours until suddenly I got next message in SoMachine Basic: I/O expansion configured but is absent or inoperative. I/O expansion bus is not started. Since then ERR LED is always blinking. I already tried deleting program, updating firmware, removing expansion module in configuration page, removing/adding physical module, selected module as Optional, removing battery - nothing helped. If I try removing application, ERR LED is still blinking. Seems like I can't delete previous program, something like config file is burned into PLC.  On the other hand: if I write some simple program, PLC works fine. It turns on/off relays correctly. Just expansion bus is not working. It is not working even if it's not configured or attached physically to PLC.Can anybody please help me? It is really frustrating.
  5. I have this hardware configuration of an extension rack for a M580 PLC projet using EcoStruxure Control Expert I export the.XHW file by following the procedure below: https://www.se.com/uk/en/faqs/FAQ000256454/ And I am trying to rename the DD1602 card using the file, however, when I rename the card as a show in the next image (selected in green), and re-change the file to the .XHW extension, when I re-import it into Control Expert, I get an error saying: unknown fatal exception, even though the only change I've made is to the name of the card. I know I can rename IODDTs instances manually in Control Expert, but in fact I'm trying to automate the process of renaming IODDTs because I have a lot of IODDTs to rename, which is why I thought of using the XHW file. Does anyone have an idea of what I could do? Thanks in advance
  6. Omron plc to Citect Scada communication

    Hi Guys, I need some suggestion & solution regarding my recent project. The CQM1H plc which was used earlier is burnt and I am replacing it with CJ2M series Omron plc. Program transfer is possible from CQM1H to CJ2M. But the main issue is the system is controlled by Citect SCADA version 5.50 pack C. The communication of plc and Scada is through 2wire twisted pair cable. I just wanted to know when I replace the plc and convert the program do I have to change any settings or parameters in Scada? If I keep the same previous plc parameter in new plc and check the tags correctly in new plc as per old plc then the new system will communicate with Scada? I am new to citect scada so please provide your support and help.
  7. Dear Experts We have a machine with Allen Bradley Micrologix 1400 PLC, Panel View C400 Request to share communicating software and cable details please  Regards
  8. I am working on project where we integrate Omron Microscan Barcode reader to Schneider M218 PLC to read Barcode text. In Microscan we enabled TCP/IP and Port number. From scanner Data coming properly. But coming to PLC I am using Read_var function to Read Data from scanner. I am not getting Scanned text in PLC. Is there any alternative function to read TCP/IP with Port Number Data to read using PLC?
  9. Hello there, I am new to the forum and had a question regarding a setting in Sysmac Studio.   In the Basic Settings for my NJ301 there is a setting on this particular line that is set differently than the other lines I have worked on. This setting is called "System service execution time ratio". On all the other lines I have worked on it was set to 10%, on this line it's 25%. This line also seems to have the most issues with controller performance out of all the lines I have worked on despite having less complexity. I was wondering if anyone knew what this setting actually does and if it should be changed.   Thank you.

  11. Hello im using  EcoStruxure Machine Expert  1.2 and i missing IEC Objects  tab  on the Controller properties. thanks for answers!    
  12. Hi all, I'm not shure if I saw it once, a Spanish site with a rugged I/O shield for an arduino plus a software package to build an Arduino-PLC packet. It was pretty much $$$ raised... (on my oppinion, for my application, not to dispretiate their value). Has anyone thought of it or knows of such an ensemble: A general Arduino board, a general kind of "plc-shield" (some inputs, some outputs,...) and finally, a (preferably open-source) software package to make an off-the-shelf Arduino-PLC ish? Maybe it all exists with some name changes, or this question is of a huge ammount of ignorance. Thanks. Corvo (means Raven) 
  13. Hi there,  I'm downscaling my business in Western Canada and have some legit software licenses I'm going to sell.

  15. GX Works3 Projectlib Locked

    Hello, I have a problem that I need to solve in a PLC program has it's projectlib locked.  I work for a company that contracted a PLC programmer before my time to program their new version of their control cabinets. The company did not write any specific contract with the contractor and just relied on his work. The guy later delevered a buggy software that is kind of functional (the bugs came up at the commissioning after the guy was paid and now he refuses to help or to provide more consultations). I have as a task to freshen this up and make it work without bugs, the problem is that the Projectlib is locked and I cannot access the source code.  The only thing that I can changes that I can make to the code is to put some logical circuits between the I/O of the already existing function blocks, which solved some problems, but not all and it keeps one of the most important ones as well. Anyways, that's my story, so now my question is, is there and possible way of unlocking the projectlib? Any feedback would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advace!

  22. EPLAN Help

    I am attempting to use EPLAN P8 (v.2.9) to import details from a 'holy grail' excel sheet of a cable list with terminal tags and numbers (source and target for each cable). To do this I began importing details in a trial and error fashion through the pre-planning menu to the pre-planning navigator. I have several questions. Question (1) Has anyone else tried to do this?  In the process of importing from the excel sheet I have not been able to successfully assign source and target for each cable object. It shows up on the synchronization dialog after I work through the field assignment but it disappears after import. ( I do not fully understand the proper structures, definitions, properties and levels to get what I want). I do understand if I import source and target terminals, and cable objects separately, then I can place on the detailed view and source and target are assigned then. Question (2) Does anyone know how to assign source and target to a cable object in pre-planning 'by import'?  (Reason being that the excel file is huge and manual assigning isn't feasible). On one of my attempted field assignment schemes I was able to have cable, source terminal, and target terminal, all on different levels (not actually assigned as source and target for the cable object btw.). However the result for source and target on the report (planning overview, form: f40_006) had all of the designations of the tree structure from the upper levels. For example, cable: HAC4401, source: HAC4401 X1:5, target: HAC4401 X1:5 TB1:5. (Where X1:5 is source terminal and TB1:5 is target terminal). Question (3) Does anyone know how to create a 'branch' or 'fork' in the tree structure in the preplanning navigator so that both source and target terminals (planning objects) are on the same level and so do not inherit each others details?  There's a bunch of info in reading the above I know, but if anyone can shed some light on this it would be much appreciated!!!! Thanks in advance,  MajorMac
  23. Hello to all , I need to upload the program from an old Schneider Modicon 140 CPU 113 02 , there is no backup for the program in this PLC so its not possible to know what software was used for writing the program. Is it possible to upload the program from this PLC using Eco Structure Control Expert ?
  24. I want to establish Ethernet IP communication between the following PLC CPUs. Schneider Electric - BMEP582040 Honeywell - ControlEdge UOC CPU900-CP1. Where the Schneider must be master and Honeywell must ne adapter. Let me know if anyone have done this or can help me to do so.
  25. Hello Everyone, I am writing one logic and need some help regarding that logic.   CURRENT LOGIC -  -There are two timers TON_1 and TON_2. -TON_1 timer will start as soon as PLC turns on. -After the done bit of TON_1 timer, the TON_2 timer goes on. -After the done bit of TON_2 timer, again the TON_1 timer will start. -This logic cycle will run continuously, both timers will run turn by turn. Code (Codesys/Schneider Eco Structure Machine Expert)- PROGRAM POU_1 VAR      TON_1: TON;     TON_2: TON; END_VAR TON_1(IN:=(NOT(TON_2.Q)) , PT:= T#100S); TON_2(IN:=(TON_1.Q) AND (NOT(TON_2.Q)) , PT:= T#20S);   Actual Requirement -  -There is a BOOL tag. -If the BOOL tag gets high during the TON_1 running, the logic should move to the TON_2 immediately. -If the BOOL tag does not get high during the TON_1 running, the logic should move to the TON_2 after completion of TON_1. -after the completion of TON_2, again restart TON_1. -Logic Runs continuously in a cyclic mode.   Give me your valuable idea to fulfill the logic requirement.
