  1. hi, at my current customer, they have a machine that shows ethercat problems after power cycling the machine/plc. When the PLC re-connects, or tries to, to the NX-ECC203 nodes, it can stop at a random node and refuse to connects to it and the rest downstream. One solution we have found, is to power cycle the last working node before the one that refuses to connect, then the EtherCat seems to work all the way, unless it stops at another later node. The PLC has 23 ethercat nodes, Most are NX-EVV203, 5 robots. Where the EtherCat connection stops at, seems little random, but the power cycling of the last working in that daisy chain, seems to work where the problem lies.   Any suggestions what could be done to fix this problem? Between the PLC and the EtherCat nodes, sits a GX-JC06 EtherCat switch, all EtherCat-cables to and from it, plus the module it self has been exchanged for new items, the problems persists.  
  2. Hello all, I am attempting to sort a selection list via 'part-selection' buttons. Ex. a certain type of model is selected, I only want to have the members of the array which match that model to be selectable. I can move the members into a 'display' array just fine based on comparison, but I'm fuzzy on how to put those 'non-zero' array members into a selectable array in Sysmac HMI code   See For loop attached   Thanks!
  3. HI everyone, I'm new in Sysmac Studio and I entered recently in the IAG creation, I have a question, is it possible to edit directly in the main project (not the IAG project) a label into a IAG? My IAG project is composed by a rectangle and a label on this and i want to see the string that i write when i edit the label directly in the Sysmac.
  4. Has anyone found Omron NX IO to be unreliable? I have 2 racks of various NX analogue and digital IO where connections between the IO modules appear to fail when modules are prodded with a finger. System will be running fine without error, then prodding/pushing IO modules will cause TS lamp to flash red on module and cause CPU to throw various errors such as image below. After cycling power, system will start up and run fine with no errors present. Doesn't appear to be related to any particular module and where a particular module looks suspect, fault symptoms will not follow suspected faulty module when swapping with other modules of same type in the rack. Contacts on sides of modules are clean with no dirt or corrosion visible. System has been installed for 24 months and these issues started appearing at around 12 months and seems like it is getting worse. Local Omron tech support are saying solution is to "re-seat" the modules by sliding modules in and out of the rack 10 times. Strangely enough, this actually improves situation for a while and then modules will start playing up again. I am wondering if this is typical of NX IO modules? The connector arrangement on sides of the modules on close inspection looks like it may be prone to spring/wire side of connection jumping out of shallow grove in mating module.  
  5. Hi,   I'm developing an application in C# and need to communicate with a plc omron NX1P2. How can i do it? With cx-compolet? Or is there another way?  
  6. Hi All,Cx-Supervisor, NJ501-1340, Sysmac Gateway.I have been writing an update for a project and converting to this new controller.It's a pretty big project.Using a combination of Ladder and ST.Using Cx-Supervisor 3.5.I created some new Variables in Studio and made them Publish only.Started to create Points in Supervisor and made them I/O connected to the variables in Studio. No problems everything was connecting and working just fine.Then one of the points would not update. I could change it in the PLC and it would not change On the HMI.I deleted it and recreated it and it did the same thing. (sometimes points in Supervisor just stop working and recreating them fixes it).I then copied the control and pasted the old point into it and it did the same. Then other started to fail. Showing no reaction.I stopped the gateway and restarted, no help, I rebuilt the HMI, nope.The can check the tags in Sysmac gateway and they always change when the PLC changes but not the HMI.I checked the point maintenance in Supervisor and it would not change.I dumped all the affected variable in the PLC and in the HMI and recreated them. Then it got stranger.I could change some on the HMI and it would show in the PLC but not the other way.This is on Bools and UINTS.Stopped CX-server, tried using it with Win8 compatibility. nope.Pulling my hair out now. I should be coding but I'm trying to get the apps to work.Any ideas will be used with thanks.Peter
  7. Hello, I guess everyone knows the current availability situation with electronic parts. Due to this reason I'am looking for alternatives for the Omron NA-Panel series. I'am curious if you guys already made some good or bad experiences with third party HMIs in combination with NJ/NX PLCs. It would be a pleasure if you could indicate some brands that will work.   Thank you in advance.
  8. 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?
  9. Sysmac studio not installing

    Hi, I am currently trying to install sysmac studio v1.43 on my computer and I'm getting an error at the beginning of the installation process (see picture) From what I have seen on this forum I am not the first person living this situation and it seem that the user asking for help on this forum had his issue resolved with the use of a previous version, V1.25 I believe, and I was wondering if it anyone could help me with this problem to either patch it or get a compatible version for my computer.      
  10. Hello, I am working on a project currently that uses a windows application on a PC to communicate with an NX1P2 controller to read and write variables data. I found a course on Udemy which has a Visual Studio project with OMRON DLLs that are used for these communications. I confirmed with OMRON that they do have official DLLs for this, but the technical support guy has told me he is trying to find them himself.   I have attached a screenshot of the DLL references.  I am really looking for the DLL libraries, aswell as the documentation on their functionality to I can use them to communicate. Any help would be greatly appreciated!  
  11. I'm working on a program where I manipulate REAL numbers in Sysmac studio using an NX1029020 PLC. My problem is I am new to automation and I don´t know how to display those numbers when connecting to an NB HMI. I´m trying to send the data to a bar picture and a number display. My question is which AT Specification Attribute should I assign to my variables in Sysmac Studio and their corresponding Area in NB-Designer? I tried using the DM area but it didn't show numbers on the displays, only shows *****. Should I convert my real variables in Sysmac first? Or how can I keep decimal numbers and then display them? My current configuration in Sysmac: Name Data type AT Network publish ST1 REAL %D5 Publish Only ST2 REAL %D3 Publish Only My current configuration in NB-Designer Bar Picture Addr. Type D Address 3 Code type BIN Number Display Addr. Type D Address 3 Code type BIN Data type Float Integer 4 Decimal 2
  12. Hi all, Can i rename the master of numbered project (#1, #2... create used "save as new number" function)? Actually i can only open preferences window of the last number, and only edit Author and Comment. If i edit one on these two it only change it on the last number. Are there a method to change preferences for the "master" project and all the sub-number? If i would rename a project now i have to save as different project, and loose basic version control that numbered projetc provide (enought for me) and generate more confusion. In the single project i have no problem edit all Preferences include name. Versione: Sysmac Studio Standard Edition 1.47 Thanks, Andrea.

  14. Currently have NX PLC setup as an OPC UA server and an OPC client setup and communicating.  The issue is only tags that do not have a Data Type are showing up in the OPC client.  I have 2 separate OPC softwares connected to this plc through OPC UA and both are having same issue.  If I setup the OPC as a polling service, then all the tags show up as expected.  Does anyone know if this is a known issue with Omron and their OPC UA server, or is there something that I am doing incorrectly (possibly a setting within Omron that I am not aware of)?
  15. Hi. I use the email block on few of our NJ101-9020 controllers to send out daily reports or any status updates. Recently the PLC's started an unknown issue and fails to send email out anymore. I use the Mail_Send function block from Omron to send emails. The only Error ID i can get is 2005, with status being "Connection to SMTP" failed. Looking at the troubleshooting guide, i cannot find anything to do with error id 2005, in fact its missing. There is 2004 and 2006 but no 2005. I've tried all the obvious thing like, power cycle, redownload the whole project, create a new instance of Mail_Send function block etc. Nothing seems to have fixed this unknown issue. Our IT department did a full check on their side and nothing seems to be out of order. I can still remote into the PLC, so i dont know what exactly is the problem. Has anyone came across this error ID before? Any ideas why this might have been happening? It was working well until few weeks ago and nothing changed and this suddenly started. Any input is really appreciated. Thank you.
  16. OS: Windows 7 on VMware virtual machine. Sysmac Studio V 1.13. What works: Ping to PLC. Sysmac Studio -> Controller -> Controller Communications -> Ethernet via hub -> Test -> "OK". What doesn't work: Starting with new project for NX701-1600 (correct PLC): Sysmac Studio -> Controller -> Online. -> Controller -> Transfer ... -> From Controller. The task seems to run to about 90% before stopping with the error:  I can't find any reference to this error in the manuals. Has anyone got any suggestions to fix this?   Many thanks.
  17. View File Sysmac Studio Simple PID Example A simple test program and starting values for the PIDAT instruction in Sysmac Studio. Simply run the simulator (Simulation-> Run) and toggle the Test_PID bit. Simulated feedback will allow the loop to operate normally. The setpoint can be adjusted by modifying the PID_SP variable. There is a pre-programmed data trace that traces the SP, MV, and PV. To use the data trace navigate to DataTrace0 and start the trace, flip the Test_PID bit true and the trace will log 10k samples.

  19. I am new to automation systems and devices and I just want to know how to connect two HMI's (each one would control different things) to one PLC using Sysmac Studio and NB-Designer via Ethernet. The model of the PLC is NX1029020 and the HMI's are one NB10W-TW01B and an NB7W-TW01B. I searched for info about this topic online but I couldn't find anything that worked for me, I saw an article from OMRON where they connect two NB's to the CP series, but in my case, NB designer doesn't allow me to insert more than one HMI in the same project, I also found something similar on a youtube video that gave me an idea about how to connect multiple HMIs exporting the pks file and importing it to another HMI project but I still can´t figure out how to add both to my PLC. I would thank you a lot if you could help me with this because I know it's not a rare implementation, just I haven´t found the right way to do it. I also leave the links to the Omron article and the youtube video I found. https://www.myomron.com/index.php?action=kb&article=1554 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXx5lut7G9I
  20. Hi, Could anyone help me out on how to extract the digits present in a string in sysmac studio... Thanks in advance !!!
  21. Hi. I have been thru the F1 manual and the toolbox in sysmac, i cannot figure out how to convert the elapset time from a TON, to anything the NA5 panel wants to display. Any suggestion? (Want to show how long a certain step has run for)
  22. Hi, I have quite a noobie question. I want to create a function block to do some simple operations on 2 variables. Both variables are In/Outs (see picture attached). How can I make this function accept variables regardless of the data type? Given these is just simple math I am able to use the same instructions in REAL, INT, UINT, etc. But, the function block only lets me assign one Data Type to the In/Out variables.
  23. Hi. I want to get the full date and time into the plc, where i want to calculate when current step and full sequence is expected to finish and then later present it back on the screen. I tried to map the _HMI_DateTime to the controller, but it does not get added to the controller.
  24. Hi all! This maybe a simple question but my brain is not allowing me to do it. I have an array variable of INT I use for alarms. I want to compare the values in the array variable to make sure they are all zero. If they are not zero I want to turn on an alarm. I have messed with the Arrary Compare value instructions (AryCmpGTV, AryCmpLEV Etc.) The goal is to monitor all the values in the array and if one becomes greater than zero, I know that an alarm has occurred. In CX, I use 2 in-line compare statements; a greater than Zero and less than or EQ to 'some value' depending on how i split up the alarms. How can this be done in Sysmac?   Nate
  25. Hi there, I have a controller NX1P2-1140DT. I want to control a VFD with modbus serial communication. Can someone help me start from scratch ?
