  5. FINS Communication with C++

    Hi, I'm having a little trouble connecting to a PLC from my program. I thought my previous post a few months ago fixed it, but apparently it did not do much. Here is my code: And here is the resulting reply from the PLC after converting it to hexadecimal So far, I've narrowed it down to the issue that my program is sending 64 instead of the 18 that was specified by the FINS command. I assume that the received error is due to the fact that the PLC did not receive the correct instructions from my program. The "End" is not sent by the PLC, it is a personal note for me to know where the received message ends. My goal is to simply receive signals from D00 to D68. I imagine that the received string should be in the form of: 00 C0 00 02 01 01 00 01 00 00 01 01 [Response Code] [Data] Can someone help point out where I can start looking for why my program is sending 64 instead of 18? I do think I am messing up something simple here, but I'm not sure where to start. EDIT: To clarify the models, I am connecting over Ethernet to an Omron CP1L-M40EDT with CP1W-CIF41 Thank you in advance!
  6. I am looking for how others have set up vertical axis motions using the Kinetix 5700 servo system. I have a 2 axis pick/place unit with a horizontal axis (X @ 2500mm) and vertical axis (Z @ 1200mm) that works as designed during normal operation. X axis has no holding brake and Z axis has a factory installed 24vdc to unlock brake. There is a GuardLogix L81ES control system that handles the safety and control. On pressing E-stop/opening Gates the vertical axis will stop the motion, apply the brake and hold with no problems. (2198-D032-ERS3 Drive, 2198-P031 Bus Power, MPL-B430P-MJ72AA X Axis, MPL-B330P-MJ74AA Z axis) The issue that I ran into was an accidental download of the program without activating the e-stop and the vertical axis dropped unexpectedly when entering program mode on the processor. I am aware that this instance was my fault as the programmer, however I am also concerned that this might occur again in the future if the controller ever enters fault mode or someone else completes a download. I have done some investigation with the "ProgrammedStopMode" parameter on this single motion axis and attempted all 5 options and the vertical axis still has a free fall drop for a second before the brake grabs hold - so evidently this is not working for me. (Page 24 of Vertical Load/Holding Brake manual - https://literature.rockwellautomatio...t003_-en-p.pdf) I am curious if there needs to be something done elsewhere as the X and Z axis are set up as coordinated axis? I also am unaware if I need to preform some action/parameter with the bus power supply for this? The current state of the machine as it sits now is preforming a MSF in manual mode after 5 seconds of inactivity or 30 seconds in auto mode. This axis is usually in demand every ~22 seconds. This will shut down the axis after preforming a brake test on the vertical load and seems to function OK, however it is still in the back of my mind the issues mentioned previously if we ever enter a controller fault while indexing. Thanks for your insight
  7. Hello, I've got a problem with a Motion control sequence. In my code i would like to perform operation like: When package move on optice sensor position it stopping and perform MC_Move operation. It's moving for X lenght, but sometimes it stop a little bit after sensor and i would like to stop MC_Move instruction faster - directly when state on sensor goes down. Which instruction use and how to code it to make it good. I already made something like. **pseudocode** seq=1: if sensor then            MC_MOVE_instruction_execute=True;            seq=2 seq=2:            f_trig(sensor)            If MC_MOVE_instruction_done or MC_STOP_instruction_done then            MC_MOVE_instruction_execute=False;            seq=3 seq3:         REST OF THE CODE   SR_INSTRUCTION(S=F_TRIG.q, R=MC_STOP_instruction_done OR SEQ=3) MC_STOP_INSTRUCTION_EXECUTE=SR_INSTRUCTION.Q   Am i doing it right or there is another way? Thanks in advance.        
  8. Hi!Are you tired of skimming through menu bar items in TIA Portal in order to finally find that one command that you were looking for?So was I!So I´ve composed a handy one-page list of keyboard shortcuts to execute those commands in no time (FACT - 99% of them are executed using your left pinky and your left/right index finger ). Check out the list of keyboards shortcuts in the PDF attached below.For more practical tips and tricks on TIA Portal PLC programming -> go and have a look at my video course by clicking on the link below:https://lnkd.in/eipFaGm   Keyboard Shortcuts.pdf
  9. Hello everyone, As the title suggests I am trying to display on a GOT1000 the real time frequency that the inverter is running at. I have attached my CC-Link settings and the associated programming as well. I tried using the example program from Mitsubishi but I got lost. From my understanding I should be seeing the output frequency in W3C4 however, I am not receiving any data. Any help would be appreciated.

  13. Siemens Field PG M3 - PLC Programming Rugged Laptop for Sale   Condition is Used   This is a Siemens Field PG for PLC Programming.   Purchased several years ago as part of an auction lot and has sat in my workshop since, I don't do much Siemens so this is up for sale - This is what I know about it :-   The machine has Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit installed (Machine has Windows 7 Ultimate on the base but been upgraded at some point) 8GB ram installed It has a windows XP VM installed which runs the Siemens Programming software (Virtual Box) There is a folder on the desktop containing the original installation files, so would be easy to return back to the host machine if required. All software appears to be licensed (see pics)    Has Step 7 and Step 5 installed   Negatives - Missing the back flap & Battery not being recognised thus not taking on charge (I think this is a just BIOS update needed but not looked into it too much)   In very good overall condition, a few light marks but that's about it, still looks very good.   Comes with the original branded rucksack    This was a really expensive bit of kit in its day and still stands up as an excellent PLC programming machine   Open to sensible offers - I am located in the UK so worldwide postage will have to be calculated seperately   I have powered it up and it works well with no issues found, the PLC software all seems to work and appears fully licensed but as I am not the original owner and don't know the provenance of the machine or licenses this machine is sold with no returns or warranty provided.

  21. Hello everyone, I have a problem with packing machine. There are some issues with one of the axis, when axis actual position is near to 1800000 some error appear and operator has to turn off machine on main contactor. This axis is working in Linear mode. I think that rotary mode would be better for this axis. And here is my question. Which instructions, and what options i should change/check when i change count mode in axis's options. Can any1 point me some manuals to read or give me some advice ? Thank you in advance.  
  22. I have a Modicon NOM0200 unit connected to an access switch to send commands to various rs-232 devices. The Access switch requires a "disconnect string" to end communication with a particular port. The disconnect string is "CRTL+D", how can I send a "CRTL" keystroke from the NOM0200 unit? I know for carriage return it is "$R" is their a similar combination I can enter for "CTRL"?  
  23. I am trying to program an analogue output on a Siemens S7-1500 unit from a 4-20ma sourced analogue input scaled over 0-250 degrees. The analogue input will have an adjustable setting in the software for when the alarm status should occur and at this point I want the analogue alarm output to start to process at 4ma, at 5 degrees above the initial set point I want the analogue output value to be 20ma I have no idea how to do this so any help from people is greatly appreciated and advice on which analogue output card to use would be helpful.  
  24. PLC occasionally going out of Run mode?

    Has anyone had an issue with Siemens plc's occasionally going out of run mode? I was doing some research and found that it could be due to a bad analog input. Is there a way to tell which input or output is causing this fault? I know I can create a hardware diagnostics error organization block but that only correct from what I've read.     Edit: I've added a screen shot of the diagnostics report. The fault that may be the problem is: Temporary CPU error: Serious firmware exception  CPU changes to DEFECTIVE mode (system reaction)  This plc / system was installed 2 year ago and we've had this problem occasionally since. I'm guessing the wrong firmware was used during the install. Will try upgrading firmware this weekend.
