  1. Hello, We have a FX3G connected to a FX3U-ENET-ADP inside a main cabinet. We are then using that master PLC to collect data from 2 other fx3g plcs in a node:node serial network. I was assigned a small project of pricing out some wireless adapters so we can upload/download to the two slave plcs. My question is, is it possible to upload/download programs to/from the slave plcs through the ENET adapter and serial network in the main plc? It would save us some money if possible. thanks.
  2. Hi fellow PLC veterans, I am new in the PLC world so please forgive me if my questions read dumb to you..   I am just wondering if there are any newer PLC machines that can: 1. keep the program even after its battery is completely flat or faulty  (Is this even possible?) 2. allow users to copy and save the program somewhere so one can install the program again without the need/presence of the machine supplier What tools/software may be required?   Thank you for reading and look forward to your response :)
  3. Hello all, is anybody out there who may read out a program that is stored on a telemecanique cartridge (more or less of 1993)? Program is still running on a TSX 47 40, but have an identical second cartridge. I would send it to him/her even if international post and do not necessarily require the cartridge back. Would be great to have the program as a text file / pdf / hardcopy. Any help appreciated!! Best regards Stefan
  4. 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 !
  5. I am looking for how others have set up vertical axis motions using the Kinetix 5700 servo system. I have a 2 axis pick/place unit with a horizontal axis (X @ 2500mm) and vertical axis (Z @ 1200mm) that works as designed during normal operation. X axis has no holding brake and Z axis has a factory installed 24vdc to unlock brake. There is a GuardLogix L81ES control system that handles the safety and control. On pressing E-stop/opening Gates the vertical axis will stop the motion, apply the brake and hold with no problems. (2198-D032-ERS3 Drive, 2198-P031 Bus Power, MPL-B430P-MJ72AA X Axis, MPL-B330P-MJ74AA Z axis) The issue that I ran into was an accidental download of the program without activating the e-stop and the vertical axis dropped unexpectedly when entering program mode on the processor. I am aware that this instance was my fault as the programmer, however I am also concerned that this might occur again in the future if the controller ever enters fault mode or someone else completes a download. I have done some investigation with the "ProgrammedStopMode" parameter on this single motion axis and attempted all 5 options and the vertical axis still has a free fall drop for a second before the brake grabs hold - so evidently this is not working for me. (Page 24 of Vertical Load/Holding Brake manual - https://literature.rockwellautomatio...t003_-en-p.pdf) I am curious if there needs to be something done elsewhere as the X and Z axis are set up as coordinated axis? I also am unaware if I need to preform some action/parameter with the bus power supply for this? The current state of the machine as it sits now is preforming a MSF in manual mode after 5 seconds of inactivity or 30 seconds in auto mode. This axis is usually in demand every ~22 seconds. This will shut down the axis after preforming a brake test on the vertical load and seems to function OK, however it is still in the back of my mind the issues mentioned previously if we ever enter a controller fault while indexing. Thanks for your insight
  6. What Is a PLC Communication Error?

    PLC doesn't respond to communication requests or responds negatively to such requests. A PLC communication error can occur between the programmable computer and the devices it controls or when the technician attempts to program the device. If anybody have idea then share i am fresher now i learn it from CETPA INFOTECH. I think this is the best place to ask.

  9. Please could you assist with the software required to download data tables from 4 off DIRIS A10 Multifunction Meters into TM221CE40R Logic Controller via TMC2SL1 Comms Cartridge using Modbus Protocol over RS485. I have downloaded the Modbus tables from Socomec but not sure how to get these into the PLC. I would really appreciate your help in achieving this. I am using EcoStruxure Machine Expert - Basic to program the PLC & DAQ Factory Developer Release for my Touchscreen.

    We think so we lost the program after a battery replace, because the program isn´t loaded on GOT. Is it possible restore it by the PLC?

  14. Granite Line Polisher Machine

    Hello friends, I have been working on Granite Line polisher machine. I have completed the program but there is a requirement for polishing the Uneven shape of granite slab. Has anyone worked on logic of this machine? Can anyone give some idea for the logic or the Plc program. I have seen Chinese machine manufacturers giving this feature. 
  15. Please help find a controller. We require a controller for 8 nema 23 stepper motors. Must have pulse direction and at least 8 axis or more (16 would be nice). Must have kinematics for linear and circular motion. Must be able to use gcode such as G01 X10 Y10 Z10 A10 B10 C10 U10 V10. Must have axis parameters for all 8 axis eg velocity, rotations, etc. We also need the drivers. Must be reasonably priced under $1000 or so. We found Dynomotion KFLOP which can do 6 axis and we kind of made it work for 8 axis. It is super cheap at around $250 plus KStep drivers so under $1000 total with free software, unfortunately, it can not do kinematics for 8 axis. 
  16. Hi everybody I have a elau c400 controller trying to connect it to a mc-4 pacdrive. But I realized that the wd led on my c400 is on and it can be a fetal error. Anybody has this experience? Regards.

  21. Hello everyone, Working in Automation for the first time as a Co-op student so i'm fairly new to PLC's and the Automation field in general. I've recently been tasked with converting a RSlogix 5 program from an old PLC 5 project into a Studio5000 project. I referenced the manual (I'll attach link below), and had no issues using the RSlogix Project Migrator tool that I downloaded off the Rockwell website. My problem is that once I convert the program, my I/O tags that were originally sequenced in octets(0-7, 10-17, 20-27, ...) from the RSlogix 5 program, are switched into a sequential scheme in Studio5000 that just increments them in order (1, 2, 3, 4, ...). I hope this make sense, but basically the first seven tags match between the projects, but then I:010 in rslogix 5 is equivalent to I[8] in 5000, I:011 is I[9], and so on and so forth. Has anyone had this issue before and found a way to have Studio5000 keep the original octet scheme? I don't see this normally being an issue, but the customer has specifically asked that the I/O tag names be kept the same as the original program. Thanks for any help. - Ben   Converting PLC-5 reference manual link: https://literature.rockwellautomation.com/idc/groups/literature/documents/rm/1756-rm085_-en-p.pdf
  22. Hello folks,   I am a rookie, self-training in PLC programming. I have written an SFC exercise (attached ACD file). I also try to call STL written subroutines and add-on instructions, from within the SFC main program. Calling the created subroutine works fine, but calling the add-on instruction fails from a reason which is above my level. I tried, tried and tried different solutions, with no avail. I am either wrong in writing the add-on (perhaps some missing but missing tag ?), or wrong is calling it. Can someone please give me a hint on what I do wrong ?   Thank you, Radu PS . I use Studio 5000 v24, combined with RSLogix 5000 Emulator.     SFC_trial.ACD
