  1. VFD Analog output to LOGO!

    Hullo neighbors,  We've got a LOGO! 0BA8 configured to use I8 as an analog input, and the goal is to read the current operating speed of an ABB ACS310 VFD. (we want our PLC to be able to react to any changes in speed from the VFD) Problem is, nobody can figure out how to hook up the analog output from the VFD to the analog input on the PLC. Have tried going from AO -> I8 and have also tried adding a connection from the LOGO! input neutral back to the GND... nothing works.  Attached is the terminal diagram for both devices with our poor attempts labeled. Any insights?

  5. Open Library DMC

    Hello, I would like to know if anyone uses the Open Library DMC siemens to elaborate their projects, and if possible an application using.
  6. Quick History: I'm a Marine / oil and gas engineer time served, worked for years with Mitsubishi, Schneider and Allen and Bradley. now at a top level position of management for an international company in which  were trying to standardize all our system. all the Old dogs (directors) swear by Siemens  Main Point:  i'm just coming to the end on my first project using Siemens and well..... its cost 10 times as much at least. nothing is straight forward or intuitive. it seems when i tackled the old boys on why Siemens is so great the main response is "everyone uses Siemens its obviously good". in other words its just me.  and anyone who seems to think Siemens is the dogs boll*cks has never worked with anything else (i mean really work with it, not have tried something for a few days back in the 1960's). or or has only done tiny projects which didn't really warrant the use of a PLC. Conclusion: i'm currently pulling my hair out with Siemens, is it just me?? I love Schneider, i like Mitsubishi i like Allen and Bradley . i always think of Siemens like "apple" and the others like "android" but Siemens doesn't lead the way if anything are coping the others. am i right?? and like apple if you but one thing Siemens you have to buy there plugs, cable ect.. I'd love to hear other peoples opinion (please make sure you state your experience)  
  7. S7-1214C All LED Blinking

    Hi everyone. Recently I get a S7-1214C ac/dc/rly plc, whenever i connect ac power all the indicating LED i.e 'Run/Stop , Error & Maint' start to blink. I can't upload or download any program. In TIA Portal V13 only accessible node is not shown. Anyone encountered the same problem? Please help me. Thanks in advance 
  8. 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
  9. Hi Guys! I have a problem with data collection. I use RS Logix 5000 software. I need to collect 11 int value. The sampling frequency is about 2 or 3 second. I tried to make an array but I faild, because I dont find what is correct for my task. I need about 5000 sample each of int value. Anybody have any idea about this problem ? If I have the datas then I have to exporting to an excel table . Thank you if anyone can help me.   T
  10. Which software for what PLC?

    Hello All, Is there a table which shows which software will program which Siemens PLCs? I will, of course, be contacting the distributor, I just wanted to be forearmed. Thanks.
  11. I currently have certain amount of Recipe data located in form of Excel file on to a PC with static IP address. Is there a way to get that data inside the Nj501 without using an SQL server as I currently have NJ501-1300 which doesn't support SQL. I am okay to send data to the SD card I currently have on NJ PLC as it is easy to get data from SD card to the NJ501.  If there is any example code or a link that helps me create i would be helpful. Thanks in advance. FYI: I am currently using NB10 HMI with NJ PLC.
  12. I am trying to use FINS/UDP network to communicate with a Siemens device (at a customers site over seas from my home office), today I attempted to set up a SEND command based on information my customer received from a local Omron representative but had no luck.  I feel like I am missing something in a setting somewhere, does anyone have experience doing this?  I am using a CJ2M-CPU35's built in Ethernet IP port which is also communicating to 5 other Omron devices over Ethernet IP, so I am wondering if there is an issue having both networks. Thank you!
  13. Hello everybody. I need to learn PLC programming. I already have some experience with Ladder language and PLCSIM so now I need a real PLC to do more practice. I was going to buy the following unit: 6ES7211-1BE31-0XB0 http://www.eibmarkt.com/isroot/eibmarkt/Files/DatenblattE/NS6102812.pdf It has 6 Di, 4 DO (Relay) and 2 AI, that's more than enough for me to do some practice. Do you think it would be a good idea to buy it? Or maybe this PLC doesn't have some important component or device needed to work properly? (my company will give me the software). Thank you to anyone will help me. Have a nice day, Edoardo
  14. I am using TIA Portal V14 to program a Siemens Mobile HMI (KTP900 Mobile). I would like to pull up a program 'signature' from the HMI that would allow me to verify that the code in the HMI is the correct version.  This would help prevent an accidental overwrite of old code, resulting in a single Mobile HMI that has differing code from several others that are also in use. The closest comparison would be a Safety Signature from a Safety PLC.  However, I just want to use a file checksum or similar variable that I can put on my screen. Any ideas?  I appreciate it. 
  15. All, I am using Keyence CV-X422A vision controller for my application. It is interfaced with Siemens S7-1500 PLC on PROFINET. I am able to communicate with Vision controller through PLC logic command and status IOs. There is some communication issue in updating the o/p values from Camera Controller. I have tried with & w/o Handshake Mode with these settings. The camera display shows the reject but camera never turns ON the NG Status o/p. I tried different things told by Keyence Tech support but none of them worked.  He told me to have you enable the “Result ACK Flag” in the bit allocation area and send  a signal to it. Then trigger it again with a no good part and see if that fixes the issue. I tried setting the “Result ACK Flag” to 1 after I get the “Command Complete Flag” for the trigger signal that I sent. Sometimes this works but still it is not reliable. Do I need to send only a pulse to “Result ACK Flag”? Anyone here has ever faced similar issue?  Thanks for your help. AP
  16. Greetings everyone, I have a Proface HMI(LT-4201TM Modular type DIO) connected to a siemens flow transmitter(MAG6000). Communication between these two devices is using modbus. The modbus register that im using to get the data/reading of a totalizer from siemens transmitter are 403022 and 403023. I managed to display the exact totalizer value from siemens transmitter on the Proface HMI screen. But I couldnt get the exact totalizer value at the ladder logic side, the value that i get at the ladder logic side seems like a raw value. For an example, the totalizer's value is 147083(real value), but at the ladder logic side the value for 403022=15598 and 403023=17316.   Can anyone guide me to solve this issue.   Thanks in advance.
  17. My issue is trying to receive data from a Datalogic PM9500 barcode scanner onto a Siemens ET200S (IM151-8 PN/DP) CPU using a serial interface card (6ES7 131-4BD01-0AB0) with the ASCII Protocol. The software that I'm using to program the PLC is TIA Portal V14. I made use of the built-in function block S_RCV to try and receive the data into a data block that I have created. I connected the Datalogic's base charger unit directly into the PLC's SI module. (I cut the DB9 plug off) So, Pin 5 (RXD) of the SI module is connected to the Tx wire (Brown) of the scanner, the Tx is also connected, as well as the ground, to the SI module, however, I only require the Rx. There is no flow control. Upon scanning a barcode, the Rx LED on the SI card flashes, indicating that something was received. I have tested the scanner using a terminal program called "Hercules", and I am receiving what I should be when I scan something. The parameters such as Parity, Stop Bits, and Baud Rate, etc, of the scanner corresponds to that of the SI module as well. I paramatized the S_RCV block as follows: 1.) EN_R is always ON. 2.) R is defaulted to the instance DB that was created with the function block's tag.  3.) LADDR  is set to "100" as that is the start address of my SI Module as defined in the device configuration. 4.) DB_NO is set to "2" as it is the number of the data block I created for storing the received data.  5.) DBB_NO is set to "0", which I understand to be the data blocks offset start point from where to start inputting the data. The rest of the NDR, ERROR, LEN, and STATUS outputs of the function block are also defaulted to the instance DB tags. I only want to see if I'm receiving the data from the barcode scanner into the datablock. I created an array of bytes and I also tried with characters  from 0 to 30 to store the data. As I mentioned, the problem comes when I'm trying to scan something, the RX LED on the SI module pulses, but when I monitor for any changes in the Function Block, as well as for any changes in the Datablock itself, nothing happens at all.  I don't know what If I'm missing something, this has been bugging me for some time now, I'm quite new to the whole programming scene, I would appreciate any help I could, get also I've attached the project file too. =)   Yumi_Panel.zap14

  20. Weintek HMI and PLC Logo

    Hi dear friends, i'm working with a Siemens PLC LOGO 8 (OBA8) that connected to a Wientek HMI model MT7081IE via Network. and my Problem: i'm trying to get the PLC LOGO time for displaying and editing on the HMI panel, i know that the Time address in the plc logo8 is VM988 and VM989 and VM990 (Hour:Minute:Second) but in easy boilder when i selected an Numerical object there is only VD and VW variables available to select and there is not VM selection (Please see the attached picture). thats way i select VW pisition with the same position Number (for example VW988) for get the Hour value and it's displays a big binary number that contains Hour and minute value in binary, also i can find that witch characters are for hour value and witch one are for minutes value. Please help me that how can i separates the characters and dispalys them into another numerical objects? or another ways to get time values from the OBA8 and displaying on the HMI.   Thanks and Regards Saber

  22. Hello, I need to make an ethernet communication Siemens S7-300 <> Omron G9SP. The HW of the Siemens that i us are CPU 315 2DP and CP 343-1 Lean. I did try to follow the Omron manuals Z922 and Z924, but faced with some problems. First of all in Z924 there is no complete HW configuration of Siemens (communication configuration is missing). Also, formats of messages differ in both manuals. Maybe there is an Simatic Step 7 project example, that i could open with Simatic Step 7 manager to do a deeper investigation, or maybe somebody has a lot more experience in this case? Thank you in advance.   WBR @rturas
