  2. 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
  3. 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 !!
  4. Siemens S7-1500 and SICK

    Hello all, Let me start by saying that although I have been working with PLCs for 20+ years I am very (as in brand) new to the Siemens world (my wheelhouse is AB). That being said I have a Siemens S7-1500 (1511 specifically) CPU with a couple of SICK multi-turn Profi-Net encoders (AFM60A-S4NB018x12) that I need to talk to. - I am using TIA v13 with all of the updates. - I have the GSD file from SICK for the encoder. - I have no clue what I am doing - I can see the encoder values update in the watch table as I move the encoder. All fine and dandy so far... Here's where the white flag is going up.... - I am of the belief that there are existing function blocks out there 'somewhere' that can read and write to the base parameters. I have contacted our local rep who deferred me to SICK. I have emailed and left messages with them and have not gotten a return anything thus far. Here's our application... We are attaching each encoder to its own rotary gear mechanism. The rotary will need to turn in the CW direction approximately 400 degrees then return to its start point by rotating in the CCW direction by the same amount. If/When production/maintenance needs to 'rehome' the assembly, the expectation is that they 'pin' the drive in a known location then a bit would be set within the CPU that would assign a specific value to the encoder's actual position. In the SICK manual (8015078/YIX6/2015-01-16) on page 31 (section 3.6.3) there is reference to Preset control. This is what I believe we need to perform the aforementioned function. Does anyone have any examples that they could share on how to read/write to these encoders by use of a Function Block or other? Relatively desperate for help at this point. Can post test code if need be. Thank you in advance, TLAF
  5. 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.
  6. 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...
  7. I'll set the scene a little before I explain the issue that I am having. I have an application where I have a Linear Servo Slide acting as a Press Kick-off cylinder on a ceramic press. In order to trigger this Slide accurately, I have installed an Absolute Rotary Encoder (a Turck product) to the press, which outputs an Analog signal for its specific position. I then have this as an input into my CompactLogix L33ERM through a 1769-IF4 Analog Input card. Within my code, I'm trying to capture the moment where the press has presented the part out of the die and it can be ejected from the press cavity without damage the part. Mis-timing on this ejection and the part will clip the die pad tooling and incur damage upon ejection. Now, one last point of clarification, I am a Mechanical Engineer by trade, so I don't claim to be an expert programmer. But I have learned a lot and have gained experience in programming applications like this, so I can learn quick and should be able to program this task. I have had my local Allen Bradley guy look at the code I'm using for this application, and he thinks it looks good, but I'm still having issues. What I have done, is within the code, I have a window that I look for, of the encoder's position, to trigger the ejection shoe to fire its sequence and kick the part off. However, I have had to make this window so large in order for the code to see it every press cycle, that occasionally, the ejection shoe will be fired at the back end of the window, which is actually too late, and my part is being damaged. Attached is a snapshot of the code. The OkSamplePress.DN is actually a timer that I have that looks at the current press rate and puts a delay in to not allow the kick-off to fire too early, because I was actually getting a glitch before where the kick-off would fire prematurely for some reason. I don't know if anyone can offer assistance on this or not, but I would greatly appreciate any help at all. Its become quite frustrating, as the rest of my machine functions quite well, and this seems to be the nagging issue I can't get rid of. Thanks in advance...Josh
  8. Induction Motor with encoder

    Hello, I am not sure if this topic is too far from what the forum concerns, but any advice is greatly appreciated including reference to other reference. I want to know if any induction motor has internal encoder equipped. We are using servo motors, and additionally an encoder for position check. Because the position control resolution requirement is about 1 degree, I am thinking about abandoning servo motor, and to use induction instead. Servo motor has internal encoders for outputting pulse information. And I wonder, if there are induction motors with internal encoders. Thanks in advance. Ting
  9. I am currently trying to get my program to take distance traveled per pulse, which is based off of the diameter, and convert it into IPM. I am using RS Logic 5000 software. If anyone could help me get over this hump I would really appreciate it!

  12. String encoder

    I need to replace existing encoder with quadrature output which is failing. We need to have minimum measuring distance of 60 inches. The encoder installed by manufacturer is Temposonics R-series RHS0650UMSO1Q1AC10 The resolution can be lower than the current encoder, probably 500 counts/inch or higher would be OK. Do you have any product that can be used? I was thinking about string encoder but I am open to suggestions.
  13. I successfully read the input and output of OMRON PLC CPM2A with Indusoft web studio (IWS) by using OMPLC driver. I have select OMPLC driver (Serial Com). Then configure a driver worksheet. The driver worksheet is the place that PLC tags are associated to InduSoft tags. I successfully read the I/O but I failed to write the I/O of PLC by using IWS. Can you help me? It is difficult to find OMPLC Standard Driver Sheet (SDS) for control relay output block (CROB) and Analogue output block (AOB). The attached diagram shows My Standard Driver Sheet (SDS) setup. Thank you for your kind cooperation. Zack Malaysia
  14. Hi Good Day, I need a suggestion, I have an omron encoder, encoder counter meter (K3NC-NB1A) and communication card RS-232C 25pins (K31-FLK1). My question is, what is the best omron software to read and manipulate the data from the encoder (I have CX-one software but I only use CX-programmer). I want to capture the encoder pulse and convert to velocity, acceleration, deceleration and also energy absorbtion. I have to use mathematical formula such as two times differentiation. I also need to show grapf and display final result that is energy absorbtion reading. Or is it much simple if I use VB / labview / java software? Thank you in advance
  15. 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.)
  16. I have a project where I need to use an SSI Absolute Encoder with a Micrologix 1400 PLC. I've never done this and need help. The SSI have a Clock and Data signals that are different from anything I've ever used. 1.Can it be done using the HSC inputs? 2. I found an AMCI card I could use but I am trying to keep everything AB and in the Micro Family. 3. I don't want to use Gray Scale encoders because of the number of Inputs I have to use. Trying to package a small enclosure and don't much room left. 4. AB sells an SSI encoder but they don't have any info on hooking up to anything other than Point IO module.(kills my budget) Thanks and any assistance would be greatly appreciated. ~Angel
