  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.  
  4. 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?
  5. 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?
  6. 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 ?
  7. CJ2M-CPU33 >> FINS >> PC

    Hi all,   I have a challenge and I'm hoping for some feedback from all the smart folks on this forum   First some background  about this post:   I work for a company that builds switch panels for the food industry. All these panels use the same PLC unit CJ2M-CPU33. As of today we manually test these switch panels by checking if the wiring is correct with a DM (digital multimeter), but we do not check component functionality, such as powering relays or testing E-stop circuits. The reason is that we do not have a PLC program to control all these elements.  The ultimate goal is to automate these switch panel checks as much as possible, the only time user input is necessary would be to flick a switch on the front panel. The flow of information would be as follow: PC sends command to PLC (output Q0.00 - High) PLC sets output Q0.00 High (via terminals and some circuitry) PC gets signal back PC checks information PC sends command to PLC (output Q0.00 - Low)   Everything has to be controlled via a windows application  (Visual Basic) because that is what I understand. About PLC programming I don't know much about ladder diagram programming, I know how to build simple programs but that's all. But I will learn a lot more by doing this challenge   To get started I have search the forum on topics that relate to FINS command and Visual Studio. I've found some interesting topics one of which had a  ActiveX component for visual basic named INDAFINS so I will investigate what the possibility's are. Also I have downloaded some FINS command reference documents I need to study does because as it stands I'm a total noob when it comes to FINS commands. I hope that some of you want to think with me on this and share your thoughts about the subject.   My current test setup looks like this     COMPOTENT PSU 24V= 5A Weidmuller Switch Omron PA202 PSU CJ2M-CPU33 Omron OC211 (outputs) 6x 24V weidmuller relais  
  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  13. Programmatic Timer/Delay

    Howdy, Wasn't sure the best place to post this Programmatic Timer/Delay question. I need to create a Timer whose 'time' will change programmatically. I am having trouble coding this in RSLogix/Studio 5000. I need to delay a little more every time 1 Product passes through up to a certain count then reset and start over. Basically during a conveyor transition, via a pop=up conveyor, I don't want the product in the same place every time. I want each successive product to be in a little bit different spot, call it the Conveyor Land Point. The product will land a little further each product, then start back at the first land point I have no code to share as all attempts were FAILs Inputs: > Product Count (Count up or down counter) > Product Count Cycle (Number, constant, set able, currently = 4) > Delay Time Sequence Interval (Number, constant, set able, currently = 0.25 seconds) Outputs: A sequencing delay, based on Product Count > Delay Sequence:  1st delay 1 second. 2nd delay 2 seconds, ... up to Product Count Cycle (4) then reset back to 1. Program: (As I was thinking) Set Product Count Cycle, Product Count Cycle = 4 (May change could be 3,4,5, or 6) (Might be hard code, might be an HMI input) Set Delay Time Sequence = 0.25 seconds (May change could be 0.5, 0.75, 1.0 etc.) (Might be hard code, might be an HMI input) Line start, Product Count at one (1) Calculate Delay     Delay   = Delay Time Sequence Interval * Product Count Cycle * Product Count  Product Count increments via PE Repeat e.g. Hopefully I have not 'run' at the mouth, wanted to give as much info upfront                I included a picture Any thoughts, help would be great. thanks,
  14. 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.
  15. 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!!!

  17. Studio 5000 toolbar

    Hey everyone, I am having trouble with Studio 5000, i have just finished installing the software and my toolbar is all messed up (see attachment). can anyone help me with this? really appreciate all the help.    Thank you,  
  18. I hope I am posting this in the right location, I did not see any sub forums specific to Rockwell or Factorytalk. We are finally converting from XP to Windows 7! WOO-Hoo! It has gone fairly well but I see one issue that has me concerned and I would like to resolve it now; my application converted fine except my translations did not come across. We have two base applications we build off of that correspond to the type of machine they are used for; both support multiple languages which are selectable with an on screen VBA based button that does a bit and language change in the background. One application supports English and Russian while the other is English and Spanish. I have tried doing the import on Windows 7 in both languages related to the application I am working with and the alternate language (in this case it is Russian) never comes across. I have tried both the direct copy and .apa methods with the conversion and the results are the same. Is there a step I am missing during the conversion process or will I have to export my languages from 6.0 and import them to 8.0 separately after conversion? I am not thrilled about this process as it never seems to keep the proper layout of the text when imported. I assume the issue is the conversion process as I can load the .apa on a fresh XP build and the languages are both present.
  19. Add On Instructions Parameters

    I am trying to learn how to use add-on instructions, and to get a better understanding I am trying to do a simplified example. I am trying to make two separate add on instructions that alter an integer tag in different ways. I would like one AOI that multiplies the input integer by 3 and another AOI that adds 3. The integer tag is a InOut parameter.  I named these AOIs "Mult3" and "Add3". When trying to use the AOI's it requires me to have an additional input with datatype the same as the AOI ("Mult3" or "Add3"). I have a couple of questions about this: 1. Why is this data type required? It seems to me that I would only need the InOut integer that I want to modify. 2. I want to use these AOI's in a number of places throughout my code on a number of tags. Would I be able to just use one "Mult3" tag for all the AOI's, or would I need a seperate tag for each use of the AOI?  For Instance if I am using the Mult3 AOI in 3 separate places in my code, two times using "Int1" as the InOut parameter and another time using "Int2" as the InOut parameter, could I just make one tag of "Mult3" datatype and use that for all the instances of the AOI, or would that screw it up in some way. Thanks for any help.

  22. 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
  23. 1756-HSC vs 1771-VHSC

    We have just replaced a PLC-5, RS Logix 5 PLC with Control Logix I'm having encoder count issues with the new HSC, I have it configured and wired similar the old 1771-VHSC However, now my encoders only count up or down NOT BOTH?? I have the channel on the HSC set for Encoder 4X, with a preset and a roll over. ANY IDEAS? THANKS !!
  24. Hello! I am programming with FT view studio version 8. In the program, when I make numeric display, I can not input values for this tag I am using in the display. Then I decided to make 'invisible button' for enabling the input for this tag which is shown in the numeric display. This is okey for me, only if there is other ways to do this please tell me. Now when I have created this numeric display with input enabling -'group', I have a problem, how can I use security levels for this group, so that only logging in values can be set? I have found that there is security code selection for this in the screen displays, but not for the buttons.
  25. 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...
