  2. PCS7 with S7-410 for Dummies

    I just need to understand a little bit more about the PCS7 architecture, if someone could point me to a document or a video or something, or just give me a few sentences to break it down it would be greatly appreciated. The reason being, we have a quote that we are working on for a customer over seas and are being told to quote our equipment with an S7-410 PLC.  I am very unfamiliar with Siemens in general, but completely unfamiliar with the PCS7. Our equipment is typically if not almost always stand alone equipment that communicates discretely to the rest of the facility.  Our equipment is not part of a process line, but rather feeds the process line equipment what it needs to perform its operation. I have been led to believe that the S7-410 PLC must be part of a DCS, so it does not seem like the correct fit for our equipment.  I just want to confirm this and learn a little bit more so I can explain to our sales folks and ultimately the end user why it is the wrong option for us and our type of equipment.   Thank you!!!

  3. PF 525 "Pos Redefine"

    Hi Everyone, I have a PowerFlex 525, in Velocity Mode with a Encoder Card "25-ENC-1". We are controlling this drive via TCP/IP with a 1769-L32. Through the PLC if I try to toggle the Bit for "Pos Redefine" in A560 [Enh Control Word] it instantly turns back to 0. But through the Parameter List Editor I am able to toggle A560. For My function I need to have the drive in Velocity Mode, If I change the drive to Position Mode I am able to toggle "Pos Redefine"   Any Thoughts would be great      
  4. Kinetix 6000 MAPC issues

    Hi guys, been using this site for a long time, it has come in handy alot. However I have recently taken on my first servo project, heres an overview of the project We have a filling machine that has a separate dosing system to the filler head. It used to keep the dosing in time by adjusting a 0-10v signal to an inverter to make sure that a flag makes a sensor in a set window. I have installed an encoder on the filling head and an mpl servo to the dosing. I have then used an MAPC instruction to follow the encoder, the cam is 0-360 and it follows a straight linear line. I have installed of this as a temporary set up on one of the filling machines (we have 2) and it is working perfectly. I have now installed this on the second machine as a permanent set up with a panelview plus 7, L71 cpu. However it is giving a very strange problem on first power up, the encoder is giving the exact same position as before it was powered down. however as soon as the MAPC executes the servo axis  faults, giving an overspeed fault. the servo doesnt even look like its attempting to move (however it is through a 10-1 gearbox). if i then home the encoder it then runs absolutely perfectly until it is powered down again. I am beginning to think it may be to do with the master lock and cam lock position, as the cycle stop position of the two machines are different. however I just cant seem to get my head around i the difference between them.   Hopefully that makes sense any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks Rhys   c1_dosing.ACD

  12. I need to learn about position control for 2 axis with a QD75MH2 module. I know how the basics about programming with the Q Series PLC but I've never done any positioning control. I'm having a really hard time understanding the program I have to modify and I don't know where to start. Is there any course you might recommend? Even if I have to pay for it. Thanks.

  16. Beginners Servo Help Required.

    I have been programming Omron plc's for a while but have not used any servo drives. I have customer who is free issuing the following equipment for a project he wants programmed.: cj1m cpu21, r88d-gt04h, r88d-gt08h, r88m-g40030h, r88m-g7503h-s2. The small drive is connected to a simple ball screw moving a stop. The second drive is connected through a gear box and chain drive full details not known to date.  I have read the cj1 manuals and will be generally using  pls2 commands for the position movements.  Are the drives plug and play? If I connect the drives leaving the parameters as out of the box defaults should the drives operate using the pls2 command. In this condition I assume it is 10000 pulses per rev of motor. I can scale positions with maths in Plc and send the required pulses. Any guidance appreciated to confirm I am on the write track. I assume I could also use the electronic gearing parameters. Any examples using 5mm ball screw!    
  17. Hey guys, first post!  Friends at Practical Machinist sent me over here b/c we were stumped.   I have a Mitsubishi 500M control CNC machine.  There is a section of the ladders that i don't understand, and Mitsubishi couldn't help, and the OEM is defunct.  I do not have a hardcopy of the ladder circuits. I have an output , [Y13], that i can't get to turn on because of an internal relay | M453 |       see pic 1 When i searched for relay M453, it seems as if it's in some sort of array function.  see pic 2 None of the relays from M448 thru M512 ever turn on.  I understand that all these are controlled thru this circuit, but i have no clue what is going on with the R registers, and how the heck these internal relays can be turned on. Can you guys help explain?   Thanks!

  20. Hi... i want to ask about QD75D4, how to change rotation direction in positiont data ? If position data number 1 is CCW and position data number 2 is CW.   I try give value 100 (hope run CCW) and -100 (hope run CW) on posiition length but not respond.   Parameter axis #1 Control system = 2:INC linear axis   Any setting mistakes ?   Thank you
  21. Please suggest me about these issues: Issue: No Rotation 1.     The motor links are slack or release. 2.     Distant issue is stuck in the glide. 3.     The motor load is extreme. 4.     The bearing are shabby. Issue: Overheating 1.     The rotor is in part demagnetizing cause extreme motor present. 2.     Motor voltage is exceeding the highest value. 3.     The duty cycle is extreme.  
  22. Control Code in ST file

    I forgot how to do this. If I put in let's say 1234569632<cr><lf> how do I store the carriage return line feed along with the number in my ST file??? 1234569632(chr$13)(chr$10) something like this, but can't remember. Thanks
  23. Good day, I´m helping with small project and currently i am stuck because of this problem. And I hope you can help me out. I´m using PowerFlex 525 connected with AB CompactLogix 1769-33ER PLC via EtherNet/IP. Connection is working, I can read and write values from/to 525. To configure both devices i´m using RSLogix 5000. 1) First problem occurs after I loaded configuration to 525 and it´s, that 525 keeps overwriting values of Accel and Decel Time 1. It happens when i directly change parameters in Module Properties (online) or after I upload configuration to device. It happens even if i set parameters directly to 525 with its HMI panel. - I kinda get around this problem when i use Accel/Decel Time 2 for Step logic, but if i send direct reference value motor still jump to it and that is not good, especially when changing direction of rotation. 2) Second problem is that I cant get Speed Sources and Start References right. Usually Is working only option 1 and others are not, or they are doing something else that they should. For better imagination this is what i want to do: I have 3-state switch (left = 1 ON(DigIn TrmBlk 02), 2 OFF; center = 1 OFF, 2 OFF; right = 1 OFF, 2 ON(DigIn TrmBlk 03)), In center position I want to control 525 with EtherNet (already working when: Start 1 AND Speed 1 = EtherNet/IP). In left position I want to control motor directly with Drive Pot and In left position a want to start Step Logic (which i have already set) - Funny thing, If I set Start 1 = Ethernet, Speed 1 = Step, Start 2,3 = DigIn, Speed 2,3 = Drive Pot then in all three position motor goes in Step logic.. Or when i get left and right position working then Ethernet is blocked.. and this kind of things.. I Attach print-screen of my current settings, if you need something more just, tell me. Thank you for your time, and I hope someone will be able to help me.
  24. Automation professionals, I would like to read the display values of a red lion DP700 in a control logix PLC. I was able to successfully integrate both devices through EtherNet / IP and I am geting the corresponding values in a DINT register in the PLC. But the problem is that the value in the PLC register is not in the same format as in the DP700 display. The display reads the length of a product in inches like 288.484 etc. Where as the value in the register is a 10 digit number like 1133526516. For sure, there is a definite correlation between these two values but I am not able to figure out the exact relationship as a function of a formula. I have given below 25 data pairs for your analysis. I tried to find out the scaling factor (slope and offset). The scaling that I found fit the first 10 records but did not fit the remaining 15 records Can you help me to find out the relationship between the ? # DP700 PLC register 1 288484 1133526516 2 288627 1133531202 3 288631 1133531333 4 288739 1133534872 5 288741 1133534937 6 288742 1133534970 7 288746 1133535101 8 288757 1133535461 9 288776 1133536084 10 288796 1133536739 11 241060 1131482972 12 241043 1131481858 13 241027 1131480809 14 241032 1131481137 15 241055 1131482644 16 241038 1131481530 17 241078 1131484152 18 241025 1131480678 19 241030 1131481006 20 241037 1131481465 21 241040 1131481661 22 241023 1131480547 23 241053 1131482513 24 241041 1131481727 25 241077 1131484086
  25. Sinamics G-120 Drive on Profinet

    Dear Friends, In my present project, I have a S7-1500 PLC & 3 Nos, Sinamics VFDs(PM-240s) with Profinet ports.(CU-240E -2PN) The drives and PLCs are on the same Profinet network. I wish to know the essentials of controlling the command and speed reference of these drives directly from the PLC on profinet. Reading the help in TIA portal got me nowhere its all about Telegrams and things that I haven't figured out yet Thanks for looking in; I shall greatly value all help and advice.
