  1. 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.

  3. Sysmac studio network configurator

    hi could you help me to find sysmac studio network configurator? from where i can start it?
  4. 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?
  5. 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? 
  6. NA5 Screen Locks Up

    I have multiple NA Screens on a control system and they are arbitrarily locking up.  The screen becomes distorted and unresponsive.  It has happened at least three times on different screens.  The only way to resolve the issue is to disconnect then reconnect power.  Has anyone seen this issue? Is it a known issue?  The controller is an NJ5.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.  
  11. 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?
  12. 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?
  13. Hi, This is going to be a long question, but I want to be thorough so please bear with me. We have a system consisting of ABB equipment for motion control and IO handling. In order to simplify the overall architecture, we want to replace the motion control part of this system (which at present consists of a bunch of different CPU cards and PCBs) with one Omron NJ controller an use its SW library for motion control instead. With regards to IO handling we want to leave the IOs as they are now and just map them from the ABB PLC to the NJ controller and back using an Anybus X-gateway (i.e. the ABB PLC will collect the IOs from its modules, send them via Profinet to the Anybus, which will map them on EtherCAT to the NJ controller). Now, in the NJ controller, rather than putting all the IOs in the global variable list, I want to create structures (one Digital Input structure consisting of booleans, one Analog Input structure consisting of long reals and so on). The reason I want to use a structure rather than an array, is that the structure let's me specify variable names, which is nice. Here is my problem: How can I map the digital inputs from the Anybus to the Digital Input structure? The data from the Anybus is packed into bytes of data, so I want to find the most convenient way to take these bytes from my IO-table, split them up and map them to the bools of my structure. I can't seem to find good solutions to this problem online. From the Omron Instruction docs W502, the function AryByteTo seems to do exactly what I want, but it seems like my output variable in that case needs to be an array instead of a struct. If I don't find a good solution to this I am stuck with just hard coding every DI to its variable in my struct, which is time consuming to say the least considering well over thousand IOs. Hope someone will help. Thanks in advance.

  15. I am experiencing a serious problem. Everything went fine in my project for month. Yesterday when I "Transfer to Controller" (like I use to do several time a day) I got this Message : "Build is not complete. Process was aborted". So I build again, I Rebuild controler, I restart SysmacStudio, restart the computer, reset the hardware on the project ... nothing worked. Always the same message. So I opened a previous version of my code. Since it was allready built when saved, I had no problem transfering it in the controler. However, the moment I change a line (have to rebuild) on this backed up version... same problem appear. I finally got to the "output windows" (Alt+3) where I saw ALL build are failed. I've contacted my Omron representative and he is trying to help but he seem as lost as I am. Please help if you can, I am using Sysmac Studio 1.13 on Windows 10. I also have a HMI wired to the project and everything work fine with it.

  17. I am working on re writing a PLC program from CX Programmer to Sysmac Studion and i have run into a few issues of not being able to find the same instructions. Does anyone know of an instruction in Sysmac Studio that is the same as a XFER and a BSET in CX Programmer.
  18. Hello Everyone, haven't roamed here for a while.   So I'm having a little trouble using the Structure Data Type in Sysmac Studio/NJ. As an independent tool, it is powerful to create user data types, such as Ethernet/IP Tag Link to V680S RFID or any other EIP equipments. And it is way more powerful than the CJ2, since it has the ability for user defined offset, which CJ2 can't do.   But the problem is we cannot move/copy the content of the members to any other standard types. For example, I have a structure with 8 BYTE type members. Then I need to send those out via UDP or TCP/IP comms, which Function Block requires BYTE[] data type. Unfortunately data movement instructions such as MemCopy and AryMove didn't work at all to do the job. This was easily done in CJ2 since we can access each memory content directly. Currently I already resort to use customized Functions which will translates the Structure into BYTE[], but that would mean for every different protocols, I need to create a different Function.   I have seen this problem posted somewhere in the SS/NJ Improvement Request section, so I wonder has anyone know any update about this matter? Haven't checked the latest update yet (SS v1.14), but I'm certain that in SS v1.13 this feature is still unavailable.   Thanks!!!
  19. 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.
  20. Hi guys, I'm using NJ501-1320 for the first time, but i'm having a hard time trying to get the information read from another PLC connected to the switch. I have successfully established the connection to the database, and write some values to it. The main problem now is sending the values in memory, to that same database. So i'm reading the values using an array [0..9] of word, and then converting the same variable to string. The instruction receive doesn't have no reference in the manual, so i don't know if the problem is there. Any help would be aprecciated. Thanks
  21. Hello! So I have this issue with me by this week. I have an NJ with unit version 1.00. I had not did any download/upload on this unit. Due to the need of showing using Password capability on Function Blocks, I need to upgrade the unit firmware version, so I changed it to 1.10. After that I tried to program a simple two Sections program. I left the CPU for a week, then when I get back to it, I upload the program from the CPU. And the upload was SUCCESSFUL! No errors are shown. However all of the Rungs inside each Sections contains nothing. Even though the two Sections that I made before are still present. The program itself is still working though. If I open the previously saved project, going online and do variable controlling, I'm still able to do so. Has anybody experienced this before? Any suggestions / solutions? Thank you...

  24. Omron IA221 input cards

    Hi all, I recently got an old rima rs-12 counter stacker working. It was out in the plant working flawlessly until apparently the wires going into the power supply magically ripped themselves out. The operated hooked the wires up again but mixed them up(both black). When he powered up it instantly tripped a breaker inside the machine. He switched them and turned it back on to find that the flippers and pusher no longer work. The two omron IA221 input cards that control the flippers and pusher no longer have lights on them and I have found multiple open and short capacitors on the cards. The cards are 110VAC and I'm thinking the reversed polarity shouldn't have affected the cards, perhaps there is a greater problem I need to resolve before repairing and installing the cards. Could this have damaged the PLC itself? Any information will be greatly appreciated. I know it isn't really a PLC problem(or maybe it is.)
  25. Is it possible to run the NJ simulator in Sysmac Studio and have it communicate with a real NA HMI? Thanks.
