  1. I am copying some data from a vendor PLC through MSG instruction into my PLC through CIP data table read. Is there a better way to break down this array of data into individual real tags through an instruction (something similar to WORD_to_BIT instruction in Modicon). I was looking at FAL instruction but its not exactly doing what I am looking for. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  2. Hi Everyone, I've had V32 installed for at least a year but haven't had much need for it until this month. I installed a new activation on Friday that I thought crashed V32, which was weird because all the other Studio versions were working. Any time I tried to open an existing project or even create a new one, I would get an "access violation was generated" fatal error. I reached out to a colleague who found a tech note on the problem. Turns out the activation had nothing to do with the crash but rather, turning on the bookmark tool bar caused it. If you have the bookmarks toolbar turned on in version 32  the Windows desktop needs to be set at 100% magnification, not 125% which is the Windows default. Right clicking on the desktop, picking display settings and changing the scale and layout to 100%, then rebooting the computer fixed it. But now all the Windows icons are really small. I've been spending most of my time in V21 through V28 until recently. Since we're all likely going to be seeing more V32 in the near future, I'd thought I'd pass this on.  
  3. Hi Everyone,   I have  NT31C-ST142-V2 and it has a prompt of "System Program not exist or incorrect." I am trying to transfer via NT Series System Installer but I am getting a time-out error. I have Xm2S-09 serial cable with ATEN serial-to-USB cable.I know it is not broken since I can still Upload/download on a CJ2 PLC. I just want to know what other things I can do upload a systemprogram. I have seen a comment on this site that he remove the battery then tried to upload again.   NT is almost 15 years old. I have a back-up program.   I can't seem to upload by this time for pictures of theH MI and the screenshots of software .

  5. Clock without using GSV

    Hello, I'm new in this forum and I signed up because I have an issue that has been frustrating me over the past few days. My problem is the following: I need to find a way to have a clock that can be out of time 7 hours. For example, I am counting parts on a machine, the machine starts counting at 7AM on day 1, so I need that part count to continue counting until 7AM on day 2. If I use GSV, at 00:00 it starts on day 2 and the log is to be stored on day 2, I need it to be stored on day 1 until 7AM on day 2. I hope I have explained myself correctly. Do you know of any way to do this in ladder logic? Any help would be appreciated.
  6. Hi All I find my self in the middle of a project where i am required to use 12 sew movigear motor/vsd's controlled over EtherNet IP by a Rockwell 5069-L330ER.  I dont have any expirence with these and as such was wondering if any one here has any pointers or better yet, a sample program that i would be able to go through to help teach me.  I have gone through the manual however im still a little confused as to some points. I would like to be able to start, stop and control speed, acc, dec ect like i can with a Powerflex 525 if its possible.  Trevor

  8. Conversion from A to Q

    Good Evening everyone, I do realise that this has possibly been done before but quite a few years ago and the links no longer seem to work or links to Mitsi pages that are in Japanese, so please excuse me. I have soem A series PLC kit that needs replacing and I have bought all new Q series stuff to replace(where possible). I have been languishing a little on this project now for a few months but need to get moving. I purchased a GOT HMI and got a good deal on the HMI and the complete Mitsubishi Software Suite the local Mitsi guru said that was all I needed to get the job done. But afetr delving into what came inthe box it seems I need a A - Q Conversion Support Tool https://www.mitsubishielectric.com/fa/products/cnt/plca/pmerit/renewal/case/support_tool.html However I cannot find the software on any of the DVD's that I have and I cannot seem to find a download. So I am stuck now. Can anyone help point me in the right directon? Any Help greatly appreceiated. Thanks in advance.    
  9. Rslogix Array Search

    Hello,  I have 30 recipes(g_Blend_Recipes) and want to search for an item number in the recipes and compare it with what the operator enters on the HMI. The recipes itself is an array and there are 5 item numbers in each recipe. I read about the FSC instruction but did not figure a way out yet. I am attaching a picture of the recipe. Any help would be appreciated.     
  10. Good day. I'm using 1756 L71S GuardLogix Integrated Safety Controller with Studio 5000 v28. My controller is connected to a third party software through ethernet connection, it simulates my project hardware and provides all the signals to my PLC. To know all the hardware signallocation at PLC memory, it uses a Tag export file provided by Studio 5000. In other PLCs, when you declare a variable as hardware input, you have to select in which address from the memory you want this input to be read, something like "Bit Input 0.0". But in AB this step is skipped, that is all addresses are managed by Studio5000 and hidden from the user. Is there any configuration at Studio 5000 that let me assign or at least see this addresses? Normally I would prefer my tags addresses to be hidden, but in this specific case it is more useful to know memory addresses.  
  11. I'm trying to use a tag as an array index in FBD in Studio 5000, this works without issue in ST and LDD, but seems to not be allowed in function block. This seems incredibly short sighted to me which leads me to believe I must be doing something wrong. Is this possible? and if not is there a better way to accomplish what I'm trying to do?   Attached are two screenshots, one of my problem with the exact error and one with a (hopefully) temporary workaround that I'm using currently. Thanks.
  12. Registering EDS Files

    Hey everyone, I seem to have gotten myself into a whopper of a problem at work. I am trying to register an EDS file in Studio 5000 ver. 30. The EDS file is from Bihl-Wiedemann for an ASi Gateway device. In Studio I am going to Tools, then EDS Hardware Installation Tool, then I drill down to where I have the EDS file saved, select it and click Next, Next. Then I get the message at the end saying You have successfully completed the EDS Wizard, and there are no errors in the error box. Great! Except now when I go to the Ethernet Tree and attempt to add this device, There are no Bihl-Wiedemann devices available. I have also tried this with an IO-Link device from Turck, same result. Rockwell tech support had me Uninstall all versions of RSLogix and Studio and then reinstall just ver. 30. Did that, same result. Anybody have any great ideas for me to try?    
  13. Hello to everybody, I'm new in AB world, but has experience in Siemens and Omron. I'm trying to find out a way how I can handle multiple PLC firmware versions in Studio 5000. I installed Studio 5000 v30.* and it give me only 1 option to select PLC with v30 or HMI with v3. I get in touch with AB support and they told me to upgrade my PLC firmware to support my software version what is doesn't sounds like solution for me. Could anybody help me to explain how Studio 5000 works and it was done in Rockwell world?  Thanks in advance! Regards, Scotty
  14. hello everyone,,,, I want to running the motor in 100 rpm but how to setting electronic gear to control speed in servo motor HG-SR502,, does anyone know how?
  15. Insert existing attachment A lot of automation cells we get done are made outside of shop so we don't typically have any current acd files for the plc. I am trying to make changes to the program but uploading seems to be giving me some problems. The initial upload seems to work fine I can select a file to save to and I begin to see the file being upload, the problem comes after about two minutes near the end of the upload. Attached is the error I see after the upload stops. Has anyone seen this problem before and know of a solution? Any help would be appreciated. Current controller Studio 5000 Logix Designer 28.03.00 1756-L71S
  16. Geo1000

    Hello all, I have a problem with PLC at work. I am working on historical code with a view to upgrading it for a roll out program to all site based PLCs. The code is to be downloaded using memory cassettes, and there is data on the PLC's which needs to be retained. I have re-worked the code and it performs as I would expect as per the following: 1) I download original code (V2.01) to PLC using CX1 2) The PLC simulates a cycle and various values are stored (the key variables are Installation Date and Service Due date). 3) I then download my code to the PLC and the variables have been retained. All so good so far.   The problem is that the factory production line uses PLC code saved using the PLC Backup Tool. When I download the original code to the PLC using this tool, I encounter various issues, but the main one is to do with real time PLC clock values. When I download the code direct from CX one developer,  I use the MOVD(083) instruction on A352 through four to give me a variable with the date, month and year. This morning (29/01/2019) the BCD values read as 41, 1 and 25, which translates to 29 (0010 1001), 1 and 19 (0001 1001). When I download the backed up code using the PLC  Backup tool, the values are totally different. I have run the backup files for both codes through a comparison program and there are no differences between them at all....... Can any one advise if they have experienced this before??   Thanks.
  17. Connected Components Workbench

    First time using Connected Components Workbench and am modifying an existing program,  does anyone know why and how the original IO_EM_DI_ numbers have been changed and not just the alias'. When I right click and select properties for each tag it gives the address and says 'Read only cell' generated by the I/O wiring tool indicating the I/O channel to which the variable is wired' Any help would be great thanks!
  18. Hello.. I have hmi Proface GP-4301TW, USB type B cable and ethernet cable. I want to transfer the program to the hmi but I cant. When I turn on the power of hmi,  a series of test appears and finally it looks like the photo below and I cant enter the offline menu.. can anybody help me to solve the problem?
  19. I'm trying to understand the basics of using a serial to ethernet converter such as this Comtrol DM-EIP-2101, with Studio5000 code. Basically I have a weighing machine that only outputs data via RS-232 and I need to send that data to a PC that will process it through a Studio5000 program and have the data displayed on an HMI using FTview SE. Is it as simple as just connecting the serial and ethernet to the converter and it does all the work? Obviously checking ip addresses and firmware will need to be verified. The main thing I am unsure of is the process of passing the individual data packets from the machine to the Logix code on the PC,  things like what the weight of the item was, was it over weight or under, etc....  Would there be an AOI or tags built into the software for a machine like this Checkweigher? I've worked with much smaller items like Cognex Dataman cameras and I know you can just use their AOI that allows you to simply call a tag if you want to display information like if a scanned barcode was correct or whatever. If anyone has done something similar I'd appreciate any guidance. It can be difficult getting the information from the manufactures so I'm looking for answers anywhere I can. EDIT: I guess I should also clarify that only using one or the other (serial or E/IP) is not an option. It will be a serial connection from the Weighing machine to the converter and then Ethernet to the PC.
  20. Micro 850 to Logix5000 comms.

    I am trying to read data from a Micro 850 into my L18 (V 30.11). I have never set up an ethernet bridge between these 2 components and i have been up against a wall since starting. I have the MSG blocks in my routine but i am obviously configuring either the bridge, MSG instruction or something wrong. Any help will be GREATLY appreciated!!!

  22. I have a coworker who swears up and down that he once came across a bit of software that would allow one to mount the cf card of an Allen-Bradley plc on a windows computer while it was still in place in the plc, or at least access the contents of the card. Has anyone ever come across this unicorn?
  23. Omron Support tool

    Good day, I am trying to upload a programme to a Omron NT600S HMI, can anyone advise or help me with the right support tool software that I need. Thank you
  24. Tool for I/O distribution

    Hi, I am looking for a tool to make I/O distribution in a PLC of around 1000 I/Os. I have a lot of redundant signals (2oo3, 2oo2) and I have to make a consistent distribution in the modules and racks considering some criteria: different channels of redundant signals in different racks, etc. Normally I have done this manually but I wonder if there is a tool to do this much faster and without mistakes. Builders from manufacturers, like TIA portal from Siemens or IAB from Rockwell, are of course very product oriented, they are a great help to select the right hardware, as far as I know they are not able to distribute redundant I/Os. Anybody knows if a tool like this is available?
  25. Hello! I am creating a project with Logix Designer, version 24. In the project I am using 1734-AENTR/B devices in etherner/IP-bus. I find out that there is only old versions of Logix Designer, only Major version 3 and 4 but the device that I have is the version 5. So I downloaded this EDS-file from Rockwell support-pages and installed it with EDS HW tool. After this, I can not choose this device 1734-AENTR/B with Major version 5. How to get this installed version to the project? After installation I have reboot my programming device and there is not RS Linx running in my computer.
