  1. In Sysmac Studio, is there a way of addressing Array of for argument sake 100 INT. For ex: TEMP[array 0..99 of int]- AT %W0  If I do that will TEMP[1] be %W1 or I cannot address array. PS: I am currently using NJ501-1300 and Omron NB Screen. I am reading/writing total of 450 variable all comprise of either INT or WORD. I would like to group them together for easy access and keeping my variable table neat. Is there a better way of doing this. Any help is much appreciated.
  2. Indirect Addressing NA Terminal

    Hi. ¿Is there a way to use indirect addressing on a NA Panel?  I need to use a motor operation template for several motors and i think is not very smart doing the same panel over and over. I have always created a screen and then reused it (on FactoryTalk View, Intouch, Schneider Vijeo) The problem is that we don't find any article about indirect addressing on NA panels. So we dont know how to do it. On CXDesigner we used DM addressing so we could use a template instead of creating many button panels when we need to operate a motor, for example. Its like when you use indirect tags on Intouch or Parameter files on FTV. I fear that indirect Addressing is not possible, but in that case ¿Which method do you recommend? ¿Got an example or an article mentioning it? Thanks in advance.

  4. Sysmac studio network configurator

    hi could you help me to find sysmac studio network configurator? from where i can start it?
  5. I'm printing extracts of my code for change control records. The print quality is terrible as it seems to output low-resolution JPEGs to the PDF or XPS files rather than vectored graphics and TrueType (or other vectored) fonts. See the attached close-up showing the artifacts. Exporting in this fashion also makes the resultant PDF unsearchable. I can't find any configuration options for this. Is there a fix?

  7. Studio 5000 no From Upload option

    So my company recently purchased a new Allen Bradley PLC Demo kit from Amatrol (CompactLogix L16ER) and I installed the Studio 5000 v24 onto our company computer and started going through the Amatrol Lesson Plans. But then I had a bit of a snag. The lessons required that I open the files from the From Upload option on the Studio 5000 start up screen. Only, it wasn't there! There is no From Upload option on the start up screen. Anyone have any ideas how or why it's not there, and most importantly, how to get it there? It's kind of important!   Thanks!
  8. I have version 1.17  .. and when I tried to import a file from a friend, I got this instead: Is there anything higher than V1.17? 
  9. Could someone please generate PDF report for the ACD files on the attached .ZIP file? They are all RSLogix 5000 v20 files, I needed them for a university report which the deadline is today, but I don't have access to a computer with RSLogix 5000 :S Thanks!
  10. To Infinity

    Hello.  This is my first post and I hope someone has a solution. I have a program calculating Gal/sec adding to a running total and have up to the end.  Using REAL I can accumulate up to 16,777,216 (2^24) and using DINT up to 2,147,483,648 (2^31), but I need to have my registers continue past these limits.  I've read through many topics here and have tried the Rockwell Knowledge Base but can't seem to find a solution that truly works.  I have gone so far as to transfer the DINT to a string, cut the string into pieces and reassemble them in an Odometer type concatenation. If anyone has a suggestion, I would appreciate it.  I know I'm not the only one with this problem. PS & BTW - I'm using Studio 5000 v24 with a 1769 L33ER
  11. Good morning i want to know how i can recognize into the compactlogix 1769-L24 ER the micro 850 (2080-LC50-24QBB), because i want to communicate this two devices with MSG, i already i can see these two equipments into RSlinx but when i start Studio 5000 i don't know whick module i have to use it to recognize the micro 850, please help me
  12. I am new in sysmac studio programming. I used WSFT function (word shift) in cx-programmer. What function I will use in Sysmac studio? Thanks.
  13. Hi, I'm a long time lurker and would like to start by saying thanks for all the help over the years, much appreciated!  This is my first post, please be gentle. I'm working through a large project with an L83 (V28) including 75 EIP nodes & 5 servos.  We have a need for quick real-time response of 2 cameras during a quick servo move (taking several pictures).  I've broken my program up into a few event driven tasks (allowing me to chose the execution time interval (5 to 8 ms for more important tasks and 20 ms for less important tasks, etc.)), along with these I have 2 periodic tasks: 1 for my HMIs & faults running every 30ms and 1 for this quick real-time response camera situation running at .5ms which contains my camera and servo logic.  Everything is running well and seems responsive and repeatable enough, but I am now adding the second half of the logic which will essentially double everything (2 up system).  This has made me consider the best structure approach: Is it better to have a few larger routines within a few larger tasks or better to have more smaller tasks containing an abundance of smaller routines or some other different mix? Thanks, JD43    
  14. pc to plc

    I'm making a plc interface tasks using vb serial communications, I used omron plc CPM2A and Visual Basic 2013 to control and monitor the plc, but I do not understand how to transfer to plc vb command, and the response from the plc to vb. please help me, I'm sorry if my english language is not good
  15. I am currently working on a fwd rev motor control routine, we have all of the circuit wired up and verified the physical circuit is working as intended when manually jumped. But will not turn the outputs on...  I triple checked my logic and it all seems right, all inputs are true all the way to the output on both the fwd and rev rungs. But still the outputs won't go true. if I toggle an output bit it does show up on the dc out card, I haven't tried forcing anything.  No errors or warnings, fuses are fine. our teacher does not help as much as we'd like and we have troubleshot just about everything we can think of with our experience.    Any input would be appreciated, thanks.
  16. RSLogix Tag Name Confusion

    I am trying to learn the logic of a process at my new job. There are tag names that I can't make sense of because they end with _xva, _xvb, _xvu, _xvd, _xvo, _xvc, _zsm, _zsu, _zsc, _zso, _zsd and so on and so forth. I know they are associated with motion, but I need to make better sense of them. There are no descriptors. What do they mean and is there a resource available that I can reference?
  17. Dialog File Browsing

    Hello, I am looking for a way to use the OpenFileDialog in VB to be able to select a recipe file to import. I read this forum: and thought that maybe I could access the OpenFileDialog function from the code, but System.Windows.Forms namespace is unavailable.  Is there any other way to access the dialog box to let the user select a file? I am using Sysmac Studio with an NA5 series HMI. Thank you for your help.
  18. Has anyone been able to produce screenshots of an NA project via File/Print menu option on Sysmac Studio? All this does for me is produce an image of a page showing objects or controls on the page itself, but it does not include anything from pages that are setup as 'background' for the page. This makes producing documentation a real pain. Am I missing something? Thanks for any help.
  19. Hi, I'm working on a projects where i need the button text to be dynamic.(assigned by a string variable) i have not been able to figure out how to accomplish this easily. I made a workaround with placing a label over the button and have the label refer to a string, but it would be soo much easier and smoother to just have the button text assigned a variable. I would think i could access the the text field through code ,like: Btn_1.Text=My_Btn_String_1, but have had no luck with this. Would Greatly appreciate any help. Thanks, Frank.

  21. I'm editing a dual language project for an NA5 HMI. It's working fine except for the message at startup. To modify the project I've had to update the firmware on the HMI. I'm using Sysmac Studio 1.15. Startup language seems to be set correctly. Any ideas?
  22. I'm modifying an existing NA5 HMI program and can find my way around the program OK except for assigning text to buttons. Every time I add a new button it assigns the same Resource ID for the button text as was used on the previous button. If I copy and paste a button it also uses the same Resource ID. This is to be expected but there doesn't seem to be a way to change the Resource ID associate with an object. Note that the Resource ID value is greyed out and not changeable. Editing the text on this button will affect the other two visible in the screengrab even though they were created separately (and not by copy and paste). Has anyone any ideas on the correct way to set individual Resource IDs on the buttons?
  23. RsView Studio Tags problem !

    Hello everyone ! The plant where i work uses allen bradley CompactLogix 5000 controllers. It has three controllers, each one controlling a seperate production line. So my superior asked me to add a functionnality to the existing program, and after a little research, i found that it is better to edit the program in "Online Mode", and that's what i did. After that, i wanted to associate the new tags i created with some views in RsView Studio, but i cannot find any tags in the online folder associated to the controller, even though the connection shortcut is set and is working, and the online folders of the other two controllers contain all their tags ! Any suggestions please ?
  24. Can't Communicate to 1769-L32E

    I was practicing some concepts on concurrency in periodic tasks where I handle such using SSV instruction to inhibit tasks, as suggested by Logix5000 Programmer Manual and after I downloaded the program through ethernet cable to the PLC (Compact Logix L32E) it became impossible to communicate to it, showing 1789 Virtual Chassis in the Who Active Window isntead of the PLC I'm using. I tried to reconfigure it using RSLinx and serial cable but I had no success, the only solution was reset it by removing its batery. I was wondering what could have caused the problem. Concurrency.ACD
  25. Hey guys, this is probably a stupid question so I apologize if it is, but I have a PanelView Plus 6 700 and a CompactLogix L36ERM on one of my machines at my plant.  We have several different molds that run in this machine, so we have 5-7 different PLC programs that can possibly run in this processor, depending on which mold is in.  I'm planning to go to a single program with recipes, but I haven't had the time to set that up yet.  So we use the PanelView for troubleshooting, and adjusting process paramters.  On the main screen in the PanelView I have the time/date and also the program name.  What I have been doing is just creating a string tag in RSLogix 5000 that is the program/processor name (we use the same name for the processor and program) and then on my PanelView I just create a string display that looks at the string tag name in the processor.  That way anytime a mold is changed over and the PLC program is downloaded, the PanelView displays the correct program/processor name.   Now this is all fine and dandy and works as long as if a new program is created, we remember to change the string tag to the name of the new program, we often run new sample parts and what we do is rename an existing program that has similar logic and save it as a new program name.  The problem comes up because if somebody copies an existing program and makes a new one, the string tag is still going to say the name of the old PLC program.  Now if we only had one or two or even 5 machines, it would be simple enough to just remember to change that string tag.  Our, or I should say MY problem is that we have approximately 40ish machines in our plant, and I can't always remember to change that string tag every time we create a new program.  I should say that I have been, but there are times that I may forget. My question is this, is there any way that in FactoryTalk View ME Studio to have a string display the name of the processor or the name of the PLC program automatically without having to manually enter the name into the string tag that I created in RSLogix 5000?  Like is there a system tag somewhere that has the name of the processor or the name of the program?   That was way more explaining then probably necessary.  It's early and I've had way too much coffee haha.   Thanks guys.
