  1. Hello,  Sorry I'm newbie with omron plc programming. I'm wondering how can i simulate plc program on sysmac studio with Hmi on Nb designer without hardware. because I want testing my program and my plc and hmi connection before buying hardware. Thanks in advance !
  2. I have a machine with NJ501-1400 controller. I have some NX-ECS212 SSI encoder input cards. I use Encoder axis with that SSI encoders. I need to change the encoder axis value with the real value of the machine. I tried to use "MC_HomeWithParameter" instruction but I cannot do it because must'nt be used with encoder axis. If I put it at a virtual encoder axis I cannot change actual axis position. I tried to use "MC_SetPosition" instruction but it isnt retentive area and when I lost power I lost reference value too. How can I do it? Thanks! Josep Torres.
  3. I have a simple question that might be hard to answer: Is it contraindicated to set tags that are continuously updated, such as analog values, as "Retained" ? I'm not sure if "Retained" values are in flash, and if they're written every time the value changes or only on power loss. I have a background in embedded programming, where I had to take memory write cycles into account. I'm working on my first SYSMAC project, and I'm used to Allen Bradley at this point, where FB instances are accessible from everywhere. The fact we cant read or write function blocks from the HMI in SYSMAC is a pain. As a workaround, I'm using structures and I would prefer not splitting the parameters and working-values in different structures. This is my first post here and I didn't see a search function, so I apologize if this was already answered.  
  4. Union

    Hello! I am trying to get hold of the bits in a word, i have read that union is the way to go. My problem is that i cant figure out how union works. I have made a union between a word (16bit) and an array(0...15). The way I understood this was that the word now automaticly updates the array so that when the least significant bit in the word should update array[00] and so on. This is not happening. When I monitor the variables I can see the word change, but nothing happens with the array. Have I misunderstood the consept and what should I do to get hold of the bits?
  5. Our IT department is on their annual crack down on administrator access and 'unauthorized' software. This year they are demanding to know why I need to run my laptop with administrator access. Besides the Simulator, what other functions will I not be able to use without administrator access? 
  6. How to connect + Program wire encoder

    Hi all, I am not a PLC expert but can find my way within the program and would like to develop much more. For work (We sell industrial bandsaws) we have purchased a Posital Fraba wire encoder, and we would like to hook it up to our Mitsubishi FX3G PLCs to measure at what height the saw bow of the bandsaw is at that moment. Unfortunately I have little experience with connecting these things, as other encoders used in our machines are pre-installed by our factory. Below is described what functions the wires have. What I thought was the following: Pin 1 goes to an input of the PLC Pin 2 goes to + (or 24V) Pin 3 doesn't go to "Ground" as they describe, but instead to - (or 0V), which is technically ground Pin 4 and 5 we don't use, correct me if I am wrong. The saw bow goes up and down only, and I thought we don't need to use these wires.   I connected it like this, connected wire 1 to X0 on PLC and just to test I made the program read:   M8000 ------------------------------ C235 k99999   But the value stays 0, whether I pull the wire or not. So something is wrong, but what, I really can't figure out. Hope someone can help!  
  7. Hi guys, I just starting to use Sysmac Studio. Its a bit confusing as I am currently used to CJ series PLC. Usually, we can use P_1sec, P_0_2s and so on to create a simple clock pulse timer function. However, I couldn't find the command or FB to do that in Sysmac Studio. Anybody could explain on how to do that in Sysmac? Thanks 
  8. Hello Everyone, I am struggling with interfacing Incremental encoder with FX5U PLC, Does anyone have parameter setting and sample program for same. i am unable to fetch counts...   Encoder: 500ppr, 24V line drive, A-B phase,  PFA datasheet
  9. Ok so I recently got the Factory i/o software to practice plc programming more in depth.  I got it working easily enough with the siemens TIA software and I am now trying to get it to work with the Omron Sysmac Studio software.  I am not sure if it is possible or not.  I have access to the hardware but I was really hoping to use the simulation like I can in TIA.  Any insight would be appreciated on the subject.
  10. Simulator Platform

    Hi. I am new with omron and i am looking for a suitable platform to simulate sysmac studio.  For example Siemens PLC have a special interphase whereby its simulator can connect with Factory IO software  so the simulation can be done using 3D like objects.  is there any open source (if possible ) platform that can connect with sysmac studio simulator to help with the 3d simulation?  Any suggestions? 
  11. Sysmac Studio 1.31.0.10 crash sometimes, often when copying things like color palettes, string in the Output Window, etc. It's always with NA not NX. I have a corrupted project because Sysmac Studio crash and save the project. NEVER use this file, restarts with the old file is better. The text fields does not appear on all objects on the HMI and it's never the same object each time your download to HMI! Check images below. Font is "No Value". Do you know how to resolve this problem?
  12. Humming Noise in Motor

    We are using NX1P2 Controller with servomotor compatible with servo drive R88D-1SN it produces noise during operation low noise at low speed and hig noise at high speed we have 2 more axis which doesn't produce any such type of noise.   It also produces vibration in the motor.
  13. I am trying to display the time from an Accumulation timer. Using a data display object I am able to see the time in the following format 00:00:00.0000000. Is there a way to format the time without the decimal seconds I just want to see 00:00:00 (hours:minutes:seconds)
  14. 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 ?

  17. As the title says, Studio 1.40 crashes if I try to run it in VMWare Workstation (version 14.1.8). I had to disable the "Accelerate 3D graphics" option in VMWare in order to install this upgrade, this has never been an issue before on earlier versions of Studio. I thought I could then re-enable it but this causes Studio to crash as soon as you start it up. I've not spent any time running it with 3D graphics disabled to know if it can run stable. Or if having it disabled causes problems with Studio or other software on my Omron VM. Has anyone else experienced this issue or have any insight?  
  18. Hello all,   My coworker is running into an issue where his version of Sysmac Studio has been updated, but this is causing a version mismatch from an existing project.  He has called Omron, and they are saying that there's no way to downgrade the OS.    Project operating system version = 7.4.0 Device Operating System version =  7.3.0   So the OS on the NA5 would need to be upgraded to match the version of Sysmac.  Does anyone have any suggestions to revert the automatic upgrade that has occurred? Any help would be appreciated!
  19. Has anyone had issues using the Auto-Updater and Administrative Rights?  I am running Windows 10 Pro, 64Bit.  I need to update Sysmac Studio from 1.31 to 1.4.....when I run Auto Updater (as Administrator) I always get the error "Log on the PC as a user who has an administrative right when install" and it never makes it past the first module of the CX-One Update.  I even gave the issue over to my IT guy and he has absolute full rights to every nook and cranny on my laptop. I was told that I needed to allow the CX-One to updates as well since they share some of the same components. My IT guy even tried to do the "download" and install individual modules of the update and that still didn't work. Currently waiting on callback from OMRON Tech Support, thought I'd pose the question here as well....thanks.

  25. NA Data History Program

    Does anyone have any idea how I can create a Data History though the NA screen. I know I can do a Data Log with a Data Set then use a Trend Graph but, I want to create the "Table Like" Data History found in the Omron NB screen. I use data histories for a UI to an operator to review previous Cycle Times, Poka Yoke values, and Temperatures monitoring with a time stamp as to when the data was recorded. Any ideas?  I am using a NX102-9020 NA5 Screen
