  1. Kinetix 300 Ethernet/IP Locks Up

    I am trying to use an Automation Direct Productivity P2000 to control a Kinetix 300 servo drive using Ethernet/IP.  I got the EIP working fine using Explicit Messaging.  The hardware enable and overtravel limits are hardwired ON.  The drive doesn't show any faults.  When I turn on the software ENABLE bit (bit 7 of byte 0 in the Output Assembly), the Ethernet communication stops.  Motionview continues to work, but if I disconnect and reconnect, it can't find the drive.  I have to physically power down the drive to reestablish Ethernet communication.  Once I power back up, EIP communication resumes with no issues. Any thoughts?  What am I missing?
  2. Sorry for my bad english speaking. I want to change the baud rate to 19200,38400,.... for send it via Programmer-Serial-Port. The software GX-Developer can do it!. When the PLC is switched on, we generate a value in the data register D8116 and D8117. GX Developer reads the PLC type and data registers D8116 and D8117 at startup and generates a value. This value is written in D8118 and D8119. The big question is: how is D8118 and D8119 generated ??
  3. Mitsubishi Fx5uc

    hello everyone, Im new with mitsubishi and  ive got a project with a Fx5uc but im stucked in communication protocol to communicate with a weintek HMI ive already tested easybuilder simulation with a modbus tcp ip symulator and it works but im completlely lost about mitsubishi, is there a way to communicate via Modbus TCP/IP? or which protocol would u recommend as i have to connect 2 drives as well. thank you in advance
  4. Hi all, after my complaing about my lack of network access in the workshop ive been tasked with fixing this so ive have some general questions about networking and concerning Ewons so this network will be used for connecting ewons to test products as well as general computer access the plan is to have 7 computer access points as well as 2 points to connect to product lines for testing my intial thoughts were to run 2 cables from our network to 2 routers, 4 computer access points and one line testing connection on 1 and 3 computer access points and one line testing connection on the other so first question is what type of ethernet cable should i use? i assume cat5 is fine, is it worth going for cat6 or is it just a waste of money? and should i be running crossover cable or straight through? do i need any specific routers or will anything do? will i be able to add splitters later down the line and be fine? or should i future proof a bit with more robust routers? my years of avoiding networking at uni has come back to haunt me i know the basics but thats all really thanks to anyone who can offer some usefull information i mention the Ewon units because ive been told that they need to be the only one on their connection to the network, although i dont know how true this is  
  5. Hello all, I'm trying to control a robot over EtherNet/IP using Omron NX1P2. I have some experience in programming in EtherCAT with Sysmac studio for this robot but no prior experience in EtherNet/IP. I have the EDS file and based on this article I was able to develop the tags. However when I transfer the program to the controller I'm getting the following error and I'm unable to proceed any further. I do not know what I'm doing right or  wrong. If some one can guide me through the steps needed to setup an EtherNet/IP device and building a program with it, it will be of great help. I have set up the Task settings same as the way I do for my EtherCAT program. Is that the correct way to go ? Any help from this community is deeply appreciated. EtherNetIP_Demo.smc2
  6. Hello guys, I am very new at this. I am trying to make a Schneider PLC (TM251MESE) to send some serial commands (485)  to a integrated stepper motor from Automation Direct (STR-MTRD-17030RE, but I am lost. The driver has been program to receive the SCL commands. But not quite sure how to send those from the plc. Im using SoMachine V 4.2 Have any of you done anything similar? Any example will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

  10. We have an application using a Mitsubishi L02CPU-P with a built in ethernet module. At one time the TCP/IP interface became irresponsive and a hard reset was required. The device is configured for binary communication and works fine using a GOT therminal and also operates fine when queried from a GX Works application. During debugging of a custom MELSEC application the TCP/IP interface stopped responding and could no longer be located using GX Works and the GOT terminal also lost contact. The L02CPU-P continued running the control application, but could no longer be contacted. The only way to recover was using the L02CPU-P reset button. I have heard developers being restrictive using the TCP/IP interface remotely over VPN and unstable connection due to the risk of hanging the device and not being able to recover without a personal visit to the device. Any experience from L02CPU-P devices requiring hard reset to come "online" again? Or does it enter some default state due to some internal exception handling?
  11. Hey all, I am having some issues with a Keyence IV2 camera which has Ethernet/IP functionality.  To summarize briefly, it has been configured and reading the data into my PLC (NJ501) into a structure data type.  The issue I'm having is that I cannot control this on a bit level for triggering the camera, etc.  I was reading that a Union type is the way to go, but unfortunately, I stopped getting data into the PLC when setting it up that way.  According to the configuration guide for Rockwell and setting it up in the Network Configurator, I needed to go with the SINT type.  When registering the device, the 8-bit option was necessary since the Input/Output sizes needed to match.  This was predetermined by the EDS file for the IV2. I am stumped as to how to get the data to read into the Union Type, and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, -K  
  12. Hi to everybody. I'm beginner on Beckhoff so I'm having issues with connecting Beckhoff CX8090 and Weintek EMT3070a. I'm trying to use Beckhoff TwinCAT PLC Free Tag names to get data from CX8090.  I have followed instructions in EasyBuilderPro which are pretty straightforward. On side of HMI I need to select proper settings which should be: IP: 192.168.1.2, Port no.: 48898, ADS port: 801, AMS NetID: 192.168.1.2.1.1 I have succesfully imported all variables from my PLC program into the EasyBuilderPro. For testing I tried to create HMI just to see status of few inputs. I have no issues uploading program to HMI, but after startup I get message Device no response and communication is not working. On side of Beckhoff I have settings like this: AMS NetID: 192.168.1.2.1.1 Ethernet port X001: DHCP Ethernet port X101/102: IP: 192.168.1.2   I can access to CX using input ports X101/102 and also access to HMI through same connection. I have also tried to log on to windows CE on CX and tried to ping HMI and that also went ok. Also I have tried to add static route on TwinCAT to HMI with settings AMS NetID:192.168.1.3, IP:192.168.1.3 but again no connection. So physical connections are CX8090 X101 - > HMI, CX8090 X102 -> PC. From PC I can access both devices. I'm using TwinCAT 2. Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong?   Thank you
  13. Hello. I am trying to make a serial RS 232C connection between Schneider Magelis HMIGXU3512 and Omron PLC CP1E. However, there seems to be a communication problems between both of the equipment. I am using cable XBT Z9740 for the serial communication cable. The format used is 8.2.N for both equipment. The baud rate is 115200. No Flow Rate is choose. Anyone can help with this kind of problems?
  14. My project is to read an RFID tag (ascii) with a Micrologix 1400, send the string to a PC using Ethernet/IP, lookup and compare in an Excel spreadsheet, and send back data (probably an integer) for the plc to use to control direction. I have to scan and compare an RFID tag to a list of 1400 possible part numbers, at different locations (more than 1 plc). I want the several PLCs to go to a single PC to make it easy to update when changes occur (on a weekly basis). Has anyone done anything like this? I'm assuming there will have to be some kind of vb or c+ application involved.   Thanks,  CK
  15. Connect PLC to Kepserver

    I have Delta 12SA2 PLC it has RS232 port and I have connected it to kepserver (by Modbus serial) and then factory IO Now my problem is that when I connect my PLC to kepserver the RS232 port becomes busy with the kepserver and not available in the ISPSoft and therefore I could not demonstrate factory io and my logic in run mode in the isp soft together like you do in your videos. My PLC don't have ethernet port but is there an option in kepserver or any way by which i can use the same serial port of the PLC in isp soft run mode and kepserver+factory io together so that I can simultaneously show the logic running in isp soft and application working in factory io to my students. I googled a lot and found some softwares which make virtual serial ports for a given serial port but they don't work and soon hang Please help me I am in a great need of it. Thanks in advance.
  16. Hi everyone. I have project to use PLC Mitsubishi Q03UDECPU with QJ71EIP71 to connect with SICK FLEXI soft Ethernet/IP (FX0-GENT00030). I have check both manual but when I turn on Y0 (communication start) there are error code F100h on my QJ71EIP71 and I check that it can only use with produce/consume tag from PLC (such as OMRON, Allen Bradley) but for SICK device it can use only for assembly instance. Then I have use Ethernet/IP scanner (Molex) to read attribute (service code 72h) then I can read status from SICK but as I told before QJ71EIP71 can only communicate with tag-based. Then I have to ask everyone that 1. Are there method that can use QJ71EIP71 to communicate by use Assembly Instance? 2. Could I set consume tag name on FLEXI soft Designer? 3. Are there any protocol gateway device that match with these solutions?
  17. Hello! I have a problem with Allen-Bradley High Speed Counter card 1734-VHSC24/C. I need to make changes to the configuration parameter .OnValue1 (DINT) during the system is running. Now, for changing the parameter value, I need to switch off the module and this can not be done during the line is running. I think that maybe this can be done using the explicit messaging. I could not find information for this from internet, so now I ask you to help me with this item. If anyone have experience or knowledge of this, please help me. I do no have experience using explicit messaging. My configuration: Studio 5000 Logix Designer V24.00, 1756-L71S V24.11, Ethernet/IP, 1734AENTR, 1734-VHSC24/C countermodule.
  18. Hello, I have been so many days trying to comunicate the multiway software trought a serial usb converter with the SCU31 device, using a omron function block to read a holding register, but I can't achieved it. Now Im receiving some frames on multiway, but there is always some errors. I was wondering if somebody in here that have worked previously with modbus and omron can be able to help me in how to configure everything corectly to be able to read the value from multiway, on the plc, and where is this value saved.  I'll upload some captures to show what I have done till now.

  22. CJ1M serial communication

    Hi! I would like to know how I could send information throw serial RS232 communication. I mean, I have CJ1M-CPU11 connected with ID232 and OC201 modules, and I have an optic sensor (digital input). When the sensor turn on, I would like to be able to read the information (on/off) with an application like Putty (I have the PLC connected by RS232) to develop an application and show the information on another framework. I don't know if I have explained very well. Thank you!
  23. HI ,  Thanks a lot for the reply & help on previous topic. Now i setting up a new system with 2x CJ2M CPU13  and 2x SCU32 and the connection via 1000M RS485 cable. May i know the best communication to use for the serial communications?   Regards, TJ SHARON.
  24. CJ1W-ETN21 Detection

    To all the gurus. We have a project now that is using CJ2M PLC. However some hardware is using 1 piece of ETN21 card while some machines are using 2 cards. Programs sequence is quite similar. However Customer wants us to be able from program side able to detect if there is 1 card presence or 2 cards presence.   Not sure if there is certain bits or memory in PLC that program can tap to "detect" number of cards that is presence.
