  5. Hello, In my ladder program I have 7 different arrays (containing REAL values) all members of a structure and I wish to extract certain values from the arrays and put them on another structure consisting of REAL values (not arrays). Which is the best way to do that ? I tried AryMove command but I get an error "Conversion from REAL to ANY_ELEMENTARY[], ENUM[], STRUCT[] is impossible. To get a better understanding of my structures and arrays here is an example: Struct wheel_data Global variable SWheel of wheel_data rad[1...10] of real, vary[1...10] of real, varx[1...10] of real struct. 2 wheel Global variable Wheel1, .... , wheel10 of wheel rad REAL, vary REAL, varx REAL what I wish to do is to copy Swheel.rad[1]  to wheel1.rad,  Swheel.vary[1] to wheel1.vary, Swheel.varx[1] to wheel1.varx 2nd structure Swheel.rad[2]  to wheel2.rad,  Swheel.vary[2] to wheel2.vary, Swheel.varx[2] to wheel2.varx until I fill all 10 wheel structure instances with values Thanks in advance.
  6. Still learning Sysmac Studio......how do I gain access to System Variables like 'PageIndex" so my PLC can be notified what Page the HMI is on?  Also, how can I execute an 'Acknowledge All' from the PLC so I can reset the 'Alarm Viewer Popup' from my PLC? Thanks,
  7. I'm having trouble specifying a memory location using the AT specification for an array in the Global Variable tab. I've tried a number of different ways to do so, and searched around online but haven't been able to find anything about how to do this. All I have to go from is the rather cryptic "AT specifications are specified separately for each variable. Set them for all elements and members of array, structure, and union variables." from page 6-62 of the Software User's Manual (W501). That seems to imply that it can be done somehow, but I am not sure how. Right now I have created array elements as independent variables, and then use a FOR loop with a CASE statement to put the proper variable into the array for use later in the program. This doesn't seem particularly efficient, and I have to imagine there is a better way. Any advice on this is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  8. Hi all,  I am trying to update the firmware of a NS12-TS01B-V2. I have downloaded the RecoverUpdate_8_95.exe (and someothers) from the myomron website. I have followed the instrucctions PDF, but when I switch on the HMI with the Compact Flash inserted, nothing happens: the screen is dark and the led is lit orange (not blinking).  The compact flash is 1GB (not omron) and formated using a CJ2. I have been using this card in OMRON PLCs and HMIs for years without problems.  I read in other topic than I guy had similar problems and he solved it using other computer and other unzipper program. I have tried it, but it did not work.  After that, I tried to update it using the DIP switches, but I got more problems, because I got a Warning first, and later an Error, because I forced the installation of the Firmware of the NS8 (BANK1) instead of the NS12. However, the other BANK folder contains the FW for the NS5... Anyway, I could fix this error because previously I did a backup of the already installed system (V7.0). I would like to ask you to send me a BackUp of another NS12, using the "Manual Transfer", that should works. I need the 8.20 version or higher.  Thanks a lot.  My email is hector.moreno.lax@gmail.com
  9. Omron Function Block variables

    Hello all.  I posted earlier in the week regarding downloading new code to an Omron PLC, but I think the question was a bit vague. As a follow up, and hopefully to clarify, I have the following query. I have created an upgraded program which will be downloaded by field techs using memory cassettes. The revised area of code is essentially a Function Block which amends service lamp behaviour, and in creating it, I have amended the existing function block and added new Internal variables. Is there any way I can ensure that the new variables don''t over write or move the existing  variables in the PLC, because this is what is happening when I download it.    HELP!!!!!!!!!
  10. Helo All, Thanks for your support on my previous quiry. Iam now facing an issue with rotation animation of a motor in factory talk view. I have a screen containing 5 motors and good number of numerical displays. Numerical displays need to be updated just every seconds ,so i changed screen updation rate in SCADA as 1, changing so decreased my motor rotation speed. so do i have any other option to change motor animation fast keeping numerical display screen updation rate as 1 second?? i have used the tag  syste/blinkfast

  13. I have multiple PVP 1500's on the same network. From the one in my control room i need to be able to see what user is logged into what HMI. How would I address the system tag of another HMI on the same network would I use the IP address? thank you for any help in advance
  14. Using Rotary Encoder

    Hello dear, may i need some help .. I want to use a rotary encoder for my CJ2M CPU32 , but i don't know what anything must i prepare for it. such as type slot for plc and what kind program for read pulse from rotary encoder ... Thanks before  
  15. All, I am using Keyence CV-X422A vision controller for my application. It is interfaced with Siemens S7-1500 PLC on PROFINET. I am able to communicate with Vision controller through PLC logic command and status IOs. There is some communication issue in updating the o/p values from Camera Controller. I have tried with & w/o Handshake Mode with these settings. The camera display shows the reject but camera never turns ON the NG Status o/p. I tried different things told by Keyence Tech support but none of them worked.  He told me to have you enable the “Result ACK Flag” in the bit allocation area and send  a signal to it. Then trigger it again with a no good part and see if that fixes the issue. I tried setting the “Result ACK Flag” to 1 after I get the “Command Complete Flag” for the trigger signal that I sent. Sometimes this works but still it is not reliable. Do I need to send only a pulse to “Result ACK Flag”? Anyone here has ever faced similar issue?  Thanks for your help. AP
  16. NB7W System Error

    I’m programming a OMRON NB7W-TW01B with NBDesigner and after I download to the HMI updates I made to the program, when the HMI initializes it shows “[0] System Error” for a while and then it disappears, not showing again until the next reboot.   The manual only says it is an HMI internal error and nothing more, leaving me clueless about what I can do to fix this issue… I already have updated the kernel and rootfs of the HMI, nothing changed.   What do you guys think the issue is, what should I check to try to fix this problem?   Thank you very much for the help.
  17. Hello, I am currently working on programming my first sortation system.  Attached is a blue print of the in feed conveyors and their loadout lines.  As boxes merge together they will be scanned by the barcode scanner.  From there we will be told which lane each box must go down, from the WCS.   My question is, without encoders, what would be the best way to control this system? Counting the packages as they pass through the photoeye? Or setting timers?   Thanks, James Sorting Conveyor Layout.pdf
  18. Second day using Proficy. Needing to cookie cut from a template program that references I/O devices in the HMI variables. Currently I have to edit each one individually, and there are thousands of tags to be changed, times the number of cloned systems I am creating. How can I automate this mind numbing, and error prone work?
  19. Converting UINT to DINT

    Good afternoon,   I need to convert a UINT (16-bit unsigned integer) to a DINT ( 32-bit signed integer).   Apparently we can't directly assign a UINT variable's value to a DINT's or vice versa. I also couldn't find a way of casting UINT as DINT.   The reason why I need to do it is because I'm receiving data from a socket. The RXLength is a UINT but in order to scroll through  the data array (USINT[1..1])  I need to use a DINT as the array's index, but I can't compare the array index to the array's length because they are incompatible types.   Is there a cast statement similar to:       myDINTvar := (DINT) myUINTvar;   I also tried the following but it didn't work:       myDINTvar :=  (myUINTvar * 1);   Any help will be deeply appreciated.   
  20. Hi at all! A little brief to understand my situation... I'm creating a new project with an analog input (4-20mA) to determine the level of a tank. The instrument send me a value that correspond 4mA => 0% and 20mA => 100%. With the AI_Conditioner UDFB from RA i can correctly rescale the mA value to a %.  Then I need to "estimate" the volume of that tank, so with radius and lenght i can calculate it (no problem so far). But after that, the value is too much variable (the 4-20mA is not very stable)... So to resolve I can accept to rounding to the nearest 20... But, how can I do? There is already an UDFB made for it? Thank you at all!
  21. Choosing the right OMRON PLC - Vacuum System

    Hi All, I'm hoping someone can help me. We're currently in the very early stages of re-designing how our vacuum system works. Currently we have 6 vacuum pumps supplying around 8 different packaging machines which we currently have to turn on and off manually depending on the demand on the machines. The challenge is to design and implement a part or fully automated system to control the current vacuum pumps - The key requirements are Supply must equal demand for the vacuum pumps - so they are only used when neededAutomatic switch-off when not in useCycling the use of the vacuum pumps so as not to overuse oneAbility to take a pump out of the loop for service/breakdownsManual override/shut-offScope for expansionUser-friendly interface (possibly touch-screen/wireless)I am a complete novice when it comes to OMRON PLC work and would like some guidance on possibly similar projects or at least pointing in the right direction with which PLC to go for. Thanks for your time Jack
  22. PCS7 with S7-410 for Dummies

    I just need to understand a little bit more about the PCS7 architecture, if someone could point me to a document or a video or something, or just give me a few sentences to break it down it would be greatly appreciated. The reason being, we have a quote that we are working on for a customer over seas and are being told to quote our equipment with an S7-410 PLC.  I am very unfamiliar with Siemens in general, but completely unfamiliar with the PCS7. Our equipment is typically if not almost always stand alone equipment that communicates discretely to the rest of the facility.  Our equipment is not part of a process line, but rather feeds the process line equipment what it needs to perform its operation. I have been led to believe that the S7-410 PLC must be part of a DCS, so it does not seem like the correct fit for our equipment.  I just want to confirm this and learn a little bit more so I can explain to our sales folks and ultimately the end user why it is the wrong option for us and our type of equipment.   Thank you!!!

  23. Alpha2 Help?

    Hi Although I have used programming languages like basic and C for many years, I have recently tried to get to grips with programming (with the software (not direct)) the Alpha2 I have to admit that I am struggling! I have made a little progress since I worked out that you have to build almost everything at a very low level. But I still can not work out how you make variables that can be used in the program? For example : If condition A is true X = 10; But if condition A is false then X = 2. I have tried using the bit inputs on the math FBs to enable/disable values of X, but although this will initially alter the value , sending a 0 bit merely freezes the calculation and the value does not change. It seems like it should be such a simple thing to do? Is there a fundamental concept I am missing? Any help would be greatly appreciated
