  2. Siemens WinCC 7.0 SP3 SCADA Value Freezing

    Dear All, We are using Siemens WinCC 7.0 SP3 SCADA software. We are using two Redundant SCADA Computers that are communicating with PLC (CP-343 module) via Ethernet. One Ethernet cable from each PC is connected to Cisco Ethernet Switch and one Ethernet cable from the Cisco Switch is connected with CP-343 Siemens Ethernet Module.  The problem is after every 75 hours one PC value become still (Freeze).Only One system values freeze at a time. If i restart the system the problem is resolved. Please help to resolve this problem. Thanks  

    Hello guys. We are trying to replace a S7 200 PLC at our station with S7 1200.  We are reading the program on the S7 200 and recreating the same on the S7 1200. However, we have encountered the SEG  instruction used several times in the S7 200 (microwin) program. And the SEG instruction is not available in TIA Portal (we are using TIA 11) for the S7 1200. We have tried to read the s7 200 system manual but the explanation of the instruction is not sufficient to help recreate it. Could anyone know how we can create our own equivalent of the SEG instruction? If anyone has the SEG instruction already created as a program, it would be very helpful. Thank you.  
  4. Hi all  I need help with communication between Mitsubishi L06CPU-P with Siemens S7-1500 by Modbus TCP. It's necessary to send data from L06CPU to S7-1500, but I don't know anything about mitsubishi and gx works2.  Picked up some pics how I did it, but I didn't verified how it works. Can anybody help me with this?   edited: I also found LQnUDEModbusTCP_GW2_with_FC_V120 library, but how it works I dont know
  5. Passwords in Runtime

    Hi I'm looking for a little bit of help. I have a WinCC HMI which will not let me log on with one of the passwords. The general logon and admin both work fine. The Engineer password doesn't work (no display at the top of the screen where the other user names are displayed). There is no warning that the password is in correct or the account locked out (missed in the original programing I think). I have all the project files however I'm using a runtime licence. I would like to log in as admin open the project and clear the password lockout. The issue I have is that I have to use TIA portal and it will not show the project file, is this due to the fact that I have a runtime licence. Is there another way to see if the user name is locked and removed. Like I said I have the admin password which works.   Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. Kind Regards

  10. problem with wincc flexible

    Hi guys !! I have a problem with my WinCC flexible. when I create my project with WinCC and step7 the window of Runtime cannot be running!! I use WinCC flexible 2008 sp5 windows 7, 64 bit. thank you so much.
  11. Hi guys I am trying to connect a Mitsubishi FX5U PLC to a Siemens WinCC RT Advanced.

Any help, sample will be appreciated.   Kind Regards Morne
  12. Deleting Alarm Logs Wincc HMI

    Hi, how can I get rid of those alarms with status I(O) ? They are simply something like duplicates and they re making it hard to read the logs.
  13. Hi, I'm looking for a way to change the button graphic (From "non-pressed button" to "pressed button" which is much lighter) via script.  The main problem is that, the button has to change it's graphic whenever i change a bit in my PLC program, more accurately, I press button in Factory IO, not in HMI, that thing I've already made, so I've set up my button "is pressed" graphic. I've got my tags prepared correctly, and I'm trying to reach the property of the button with this script:   Do  If SmartTags("Variable_1") Is True Then     HmiRuntime.Screens("Screen_1").ScreenItems("Template_Button_2")  End If Loop Is it even proper way to do stuff like that? I THINK it'll work like, if Variable_1 (Bool %Q0.0 for e.g. in PLC program) is 1 Then ->  And when I'm at ScreenItems, i don't know which property should I choose next in order to change button graphic.   Hope you can help :)
  14. Hi all. I would like to get in contact with whoever can help me in my particular problem. I hold an HNC level in robot and plc programming but for different reasons I'm still trying to get on the industry but is being a hard task. It's been a while that I'm trying to get into some companies by agencies and they are always asking for something that I can't provide like two years experience. Basically I'm writing here trying to find someone that can help me in anyway. Currently I live in Shrewsbury and it will be complicated to get relocated but nothing is impossible if things are interesting for both sides. Thanks to all even for read it and just consider the possibility to help me on any way.

  16. Tia Portal Programming Help PLEASE

    Hello I am having some difficulty writing code for a specific function using Tia portal and a S7-1200. I 10 Digital inputs and 1 analogue output set for 0-10V. When 1 DI is high I need the AQ to be at 1V, when any 2 DIs are high I need the AQ to be at 2, When any 3 DIs are high I need the AQ to be at 3V and so on.... I just can't work out the best way to do achieve this.   For a bit more info the to what the project entails the digital inputs are all coming back from DOL starters for woodworking equipment at workstations. When one of these starters is turned on a signal is sent back to the PLC DI card, this open a solenoid in extraction pipework and also increases the frequency at a VSD to extract the dust. So when more workstations are in use the higher the frequency of the VSD will be and the faster the motor will run allowing adequate extraction at all stations
  17. TIA Portal multiuser

    Hello! I'm very new to the TIA Portal, and i need some answers about Multiuser service. In the near future i need to program some PLC's with TIA Portal with my co worker simultaneously.. He told me that he  doesnt know, how this will work, because he dont know how the multiuser server works (+ needs license maybe?). In Step 7 we can program the PLC simultaneously, i just upload my FC to to PLC, and he works in another FC. He said that this is not the case with TIA Portal, and instead we need to exchange our projects frequently. But is it true? I need some license for this, and do some extra work, to work together with my co.worker? I only want to load my FC's into the PLC and my colleague load in another Fc's,DB's, etc.. Sorry for the beginner question, i never worked with TIA Portal.
  18. Regards! My problem is the following. I have a client that has 7 different machines with touch panels SIEMENS TP277. A touch panel for each machine. The machines are different and therefore the projects that have to be loaded from WINCC Flexible to each panel are different. That is, 7 different projects. My client wants to have a single spare screen, not 7. Is there any way that he has a single spare physical panel and without needing WINCC Flexible can he load the same one of the 7 projects? Can not you record inside the panel and then load 1 of the 7 you need? Or via USB memory? ZhankS!   zHANKS!                
  19. LOGO! 8 TIA portal WinCC

    Hi all experts, I am LOGO! 8 PLC programmer, and now I am beginning to start SCADA developement. I want to ask which software should I install ?, 1. TIA portal with Siemens SIMATIC STEP 7 Professional & WinCC Professional 15.1 x64 2. WinCC RT Professional 15.1 x64 3. STEP 7 Professional 14.0 4. SINAMICS Startdrive 14.0 5. WinCC RT Advanced v15 Please excuse me if my question is not OK as I am beginning scada developement I know nothing about it and I can get limited software through my college programme. I am confused too because I found that "Up from version 12 of WinCC the driver “LOGO” is available" and also "I think the Logo! communication driver is only available for a WinCC RT advanced , not professional."  in this post : unable-to-connect-tia-15-version-to-logo-8/185145 Please hep me so that I can learn SCADA developement with my LOGO8 Waiting for your fruitful reply, Thanks and Regards
  20. Optimized Blocks

    Hello everyone, Are there any alternatives to WinCC at the moment that can handle using optimized blocks. In most other SCADA software, while importing tags, the option to optimize blocks should not be selected as they cannot import in this format. Ignition by Inductive Automation has a driver that can be purchased to solve this problem. I wanted to know if there are some other solutions to this issue.  Thanks!
  21. Hi every body, the application i want to do is explain bellow: ((if i write in the IOFILED and the value existe in my database so a msg box will be shown that the value existe,else a msgbox will show that the value didn't existe.)) my problem is in the data entry. i have to press enter , but in reallity i want when the barcode is scanned so automatically the code will be executed. if the value change , I want that the msg will be automatically written without pressing enter. I m using wincc professionel.  I have made a lot of research , and i didn't find any solution. if somenone knows how to do that please help me. Iwill be thankfull ,  Best regards
  22. Hello all, I created a Viewer for WinCC flexible and TIA Portal csv archive. Here a screenshot: you can download this software here: About feedback I would be happy Maybe you have some Ideas?
  23. I am using TIA Portal V14 to program a Siemens Mobile HMI (KTP900 Mobile).I would like to pull up a program 'signature' from the HMI that would allow me to verify that the code in the HMI is the correct version.  This would help prevent an accidental overwrite of old code, resulting in a single Mobile HMI that has differing code from several others that are also in use.The closest comparison would be a Safety Signature from a Safety PLC.  However, I just want to use a file checksum or similar variable that I can put on my screen.Any ideas?  I appreciate it.
  24. TIA Portal HMI Button Not working

    I am hoping someone can help me.   I have a siemens system in our facility that was built by a 3rd party.  It arrived in less than stellar fashion, and doesn't work as it should.   After 10 months of being here and not getting any resolve, I am going after it myself to tackle what should be relatively mundane issues to fix.  That said, I have an AB background, and have worked with Automation direct, eaton, and fanuc controllers.  I am new to siemens.   I have made my way around the ladder pretty well, but I am having some issues with the HMI.  Specifically, the vendor programmed in manual controls for our system, but they do not all work.  I checked the HMI tags; they appear to match the plc tags as I expect, but when I press the HMI buttons on the screen, in online mode, I cannot see the tags become energized in the ladder.   The corresponding manual controls subsequently do not work.  The manual controls that do work, I can see the bits energize when I press the HMI buttons.   Is there anything specifically I should be looking at that I am overlooking possibly?  Typically, the HMI is an easy part of a project, but I am a bit dumbfounded by my inability to figure out something so seemingly simple.     Thanks, KK
