  1. Hi there, I need help. I have a Shihlin AX2N-32mr, it was working properly but after its battery got dead, its Prog light blinks. I replaced the battery, then the battery light turned off, but the Prog light is still blinking, I have checked all input and outputs, all of the switches work. Also, there is a message on display which is in Chinese and I can't translate it. it looks like a warning. Thank you.
  2. 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
  3. Hi fellow PLC veterans, I am new in the PLC world so please forgive me if my questions read dumb to you..   I am just wondering if there are any newer PLC machines that can: 1. keep the program even after its battery is completely flat or faulty  (Is this even possible?) 2. allow users to copy and save the program somewhere so one can install the program again without the need/presence of the machine supplier What tools/software may be required?   Thank you for reading and look forward to your response :)
  4. Hi there! I was working on EPLAN Electric P8 when suddenly, the program stopped working (mouse didn't barely move, couldn't click) which resulted in a blue screen after trying to close the program (didn't manage to force stop of the VMWARE process where I execute it).  So, the thing is I can open projects and all, but everytime I close a component window I get this error window: (S275024) Couldn't find setting USER.SYSTEM.GUI.Control.MGGrid.DeviceTagGUI.116.1002.LastIndex.index. And it happens when other different windows (for example when opening Layer Manager I get the same error with LayerManger instead of DeviceTag. Also, if I try to close Eplan by clicking the red X of the window, It won't close. What can I do? There's very little info about this error code in the net and I'm running out of ideas. Thanks in advance!
  5. Shihlin Ax series

    Hi, I am installing a Shihlin AX1n-40MR-ES into a Taiwanese machine tool at my factory. This will be the 3rd PLC purchased from the original manufacturer to put into this decades old machine due to obsolescence and battery failures. The manufacturer of the machine tool has always refused to share the ladder logic or any of the programming. Mainly I work in Automation Direct PLC's with occasional forays into AB. I am done with relying on the tool builder. I know this PLC is basically a Mitsubishi PLC and I will get the correct cable to extract the program (SC-09) but I would like to know the least expensive alternative of software to extract the program. I would be fine with a graphical representation of the ladder diagram and then I can develop a program using my own tools and hardware.  Any help will be greatly appreciated. Greg

  7. Hi, This is my first time to start an actual project. I have some basic to intermediate programming background with Seimens PLC in the past but with no work experience. I bought an old bandsaw machine for a very cheap price. It works fine on manual operations but I want to try and test if I can make the fully automatic function back. The current PLC installed in the machine is a Shihlin Electric SEPLC A1-30MR. It look old and the port is not familiar to me. I also have no idea if I can even get the program inside or not. Thus, I plan to replace the old PLC with a new one. Here are my questions. Should I use a PLC or can I just use a digital controller like Logo ? I need to use a loop for counting how many cuts it should do. And how many times the machine should repeat the push of my stock out per cut. What else should I consider when choosing a PLC or digital controller?   Thank you in advance. 
  8. Hi, I've been having a problem with my Schneider setup, and I can't seem to figure out the problem. I'm using Machine Expert Logic Builder and Vijeo 6.2, and I can't seem to download to my PLC. I can download to my HMI just fine, but my HMI comes back with the message as mentioned in the title. Also when I perform a full download, machine expert comes up with the message "Could not connect to the device for item "xx", selected target system "PLC name" is different from the connected device "HMI name". The weirdest thing is that machine expert shows my PLC just fine, but doesn't show my HMI. I have no idea what to do, as I feel like I've tried everything. The IP range is fine, subnet is fine. The driver in IO manager in Vijeo has the PLC nodename in it, so that shouldn't be the problem either. Does anyone know what to do in a situation like this? Thank you in advance!
  9. Hello everybody,   First, I used the BMX NOR 0200H module associated with a GSM modem, for the time stamp and the problem is at the level of data recovery (slave PLC), I received the value of the variable (it's OK), but instead of the modification date of the variable, I received the send date (from the master PLC to the slave PLC).   After this application, I tried to use Web Desinger to do the timestamp by recovering a .csv extension file, but the file does not generate in the memory card (I accessed the module's memory card by an FTP client).   At this stage, the BMX NOR 0200H module, does not respond to a new configuration or a modification (either by Web Designer software or by Web Server, even these last two confirms me by a dialog box that the module has accepted the change).     Thank you all for your attention.    
  10. Automax Reliance Electric Drive

    I have a Reliance Electric Drive Digital I/O Module 57401 that won't close the MCR contact R1/B3.  I believe I've narrowed the problem to the 4 input signals WDOK, BD INIT, INIT, FAULT on the Multibus.  Does anyone know how to access those signals from AutoMax Executive.  I have also made a breakout cable, out of an old output card to access those signals.  The problem with the breakout board is that P1-16 does not carry over to the empty slots 5, 6, 7, 8 and slots 11, 12, 13, 14 are full with the drive cards in question.  I would also like to find out what drives those signals, especially the Fault signal on P1-16 of the Multibus.
  11. Hello, everyone. I want to ask for help..  i want to upgrade HMI hakko V7 to V9.. have file hmi in V7 use software V-SFTV5 but when I open file V7 use software V-SFTV6 its cant convert and i attached the screenshoot below..  can someone tell me what's wrong?
  12. Hello, I am new to the forum. Being doing a lot of googling to see if theirs any cross-compatibility between an M241 PLC and a Simatic panel PC and stumbled across this forum which hopefully could help me out. I'm starting an automation project to automate my home brewery. The M241 from Schneider electric seems to tick the boxes for what I require.  At my work theirs a redundant Simatic Panel PC 670 just waiting to be recycled. My question is, can I use the panel pc purely as an HMI for the M241?  
  13. Are there any good guide books out there that parse down the NEC to the sections relevant to controls engineering and panel building?
