  1. Hello! I am working on a quote for a new project that will use EtherCAT but also requires DeviceNet for some legacy components.  Has anyone successfully used the Beckhoff EtherCAT coupler (EK1100) with the DeviceNet Master Terminal (EL6752) and an Omron PLC as the EtherCAT master? My concern is that the coupler will only communicate with the Beckhoff EtherCAT master, but since it is so much more expensive to get the new Omron parts to communicate DeviceNET i am hoping this could be an option.  The equipment is extremely simple and price is a major consideration.   Thank you!!!
  2. Hi, I previously posted about connecting an Omron HMI to a PLC via DeviceNet.  I have managed to get them set up via CX-Integrator.  Now I am having trouble understand the shared input/output data as it pertains to controlling the PLC (CJ2H) program and vice versa (PLC program controlling the HMI.)  If, for instance, I pick a memory location, let's say W300 in the Work Area of memory, and set a toggle on the HMI to control it, it doesn't actually affect the program.  Likewaise, if I set a toggle in the PLC program to match the Controller work area memory and set it on/off, it doesn't actually change the HMI.  I have only been able to get some "artifacts" of string data to communicate one-way, one time.  Any help is appreciated!
  3. Hi, I have an Omron NSJ5-SQ00B-M3D Programmable Terminal (HMI) that I am trying to get to communicate with an Omron CJ2H PLC through a DeviceNet module (DRM21) in the main PLC rack.  I don't see how to configure CX-Designer to communicate via DeviceNet.  How is this done?  Many thanks for any help.
  4. 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.
  5. Qucik question guys, im a noob on Unity Pro and was wondering if uploading a project off of a plc already running a program will affect the operation of the already program?
  6. Numatics DeviceNet I/O

    Hey guys, I've check out some of the forums surrounding the G3 Numatics and haven't stumbled upon anything that sounds quite like the issue we're experiencing.   Here's the scenario: We have a G3 Numatics with DeviceNet comms to a Compact logix. We have replaced the input module (PN: 240-205, same firmware as old) and the communication module (PN: 240-180). The Rx is supposed to auto adjust to 9, but we keep getting the factory defualt of 6. It's as if it's not reading the Input module. We can observe the inputs change state on the input module itself, but we get nothing reporting back to the PLC. When we put the Rx to 9 Manually we get rid of the error 77 on the PLC, but still have no indication of state change from G3 to PLC. There are no errors on either the G3 mods or the PLC. We have contacted ASCO and Rockwell and we are still down. Has anybody seen this issue before?   Thank you in advance for you time, Eric     This is what we're supposed to see in NetWorx, but it resets to 6 produced and we lose the Part number on station 1. We're still losing the part number. We've also tried downloading the part number to it, but it loses it immediately.

  10. 1756-dnb connection error

    i'm trying to interface a 1756-dnb to a couple devices. i've got the rsnetworx configuration complete and dowwnloaded to the device. when i go online in studio 5000, the scanner is faulted out. the code is "16#0108 connection request error: connection type (multicast/unicast) not supported". what could be going on here? i'm using an l72s cpu and a 1756-dnb/a on the local chassis
  11. AB7607 word sizing issues

    Hi Everyone So at work I've recently had to replace an HMS AB7607 ethernet/devicenet gateway on one of our older networks. The older device was a AB7607-B ( rev1.8 ) and the new device was a AB7607-C (rev 2.4), the new device accepted the old config through RSNetworx for devicenet without any issues. But what i found is that I was now getting code16#0109  Connection Request error: Invalid Connection Size on the gateway in my IO tree in rslogix. None of the mapping in the gateway has changed the only way i could get it to connect and get the fault to clear was increase the input and output sizing to maximum (as seen in the attached pics). This then created the issue of intermittent comms dropouts on the scanner so i had to issue increase the RPI from 50ms to 100ms. which i shouldn't have to do as the network is fairly small with only 5 nodes made up of 3 encoders and 2 IO modules. The network is now running but occasionally all three encoders will flat line this has only begun to happen  since the change out,  i've checked the network with a scope and the signal looks fine and i've checked all device taps, powertaps and end of line resistors which are all fine. The only thing i can think of which would cause this issue is me maxing out the input/output word sizing and the increase in the RPI.   So my question is how can i reduce the word sizing  back to only grab the data i require as when  i change the values from anything lower than the max size input output  I run into the word sizing fault again. I've ensured that everything is matching up ie SINTS are being used in the scanner and PLC so there's no mismatches.  Ive gone over the manual and i can see anything why i would event need to increase the word sizing after the upgrade. Is anyone able to help?   
  12. FPWin GR Problem

    Hi, I use Panasonic FP0R 32T PLC. Usually i have no problems to upload or download program to PLC. But, right now the Software, FPWin GR cannot perform the download and upload from PLC task. If i do, the software will be not responding and need to be closed.. Anyone know about this?
  13. Mitsubishi PLC devicent configuration

    Dear sir,                We are having Mitsubishi FX5U-32MT PLC with us currently used for welding automation. For further development I want to connect Mitsubishi PLC to device net. We are using new fronius welding power source which is having devicenet. Kindly suggest if the existing plc will be suitable for connecting to devicenet or do we require additional module.
  14. DeviceNet problem CJ2M-CPU31

    Hi, I am trying to set up a remote IO exercise using CJ2M-CPU31/CJ1W-DRM21-> GRT1-DRT with little success. Started with setting up Comms, making Routing table, downloading Routing table, Connecting to DeviceNet in lower left window in CX-Integrator, Devicenet appears in the project and  DRM in the right window. From then anything I try to do with the DRM responds with communication error. I got no NS leds, E2 in the DRM and flashing TS on the GRT. I have done the same thing with a CS1 and a CJ1M-CPU11-ETN with almost no problems. Only difference being that with CJ2M I had to start Integrator first, same results with Ethernet, Ethernet FINS/TCP and Direct online USB. The DRMs/DRTs are donated second hand units, so might have some inherited settings? Any suggestions? Geir Update: Actually had two problems, one of the IO-slices in the GRT was faulty and blocked communication. CX-Integrator only seem to work with CJ2M in Auto online USB or USB (Toolbus). Geir
  15. Q06UDEHCPU MELSECQ Upload

    Hello ,  I dont have experience with Mitsubishi PLC.  I want to do a modification on the ethernet configuration but i dont have the source code .  According the information that i read we can use GX IEC developer or GX developer but my question are :  Can i upload and download the program with GX developer?  Even if was previous developed with GX IEC Developer i will not do any change on the code only on ethernet configurations , add a MC communication. I have another concern about the profibus module. For the profibus is necessary another program right ? But if i don't want do any modification on the profibus is dont need it, right?  My experience on Siemens when is necessary do a modification on the hardware configuration. I should have all the hadware configuration " right"  it means if i have profibus i should have the right GSD to allow do modification on the configuration .  But on Mitsubish i can´t understand that well . Regards  Roberto Fonte  
  16. Failed Uploading the Logic from GE PLC RX3i

    Hi Everyone, I'm in a maintenance team in a factory, I need to upload an existing PLC program for backup purposes. The existing PLC is (IC695CPU310) (With only two serial ports 1 & 2). I don't know in which version the program was developed and downloaded to the PLC but the factory was established in 2009, so I used PME Ver. 7.5 (to be sure of having a newer version). I have installed the PME in a laptop with Windows XP SP3 which have a built-in serial port. I used the Horner Electric mini converter cable (HE693SNP232A) to connect with the PLC port 2. I was able to go online but the LED of port 2 in CPU was not steady on all the time, it was on for most of the time but going off for a short time frequently. I put the CPU in stop mode and I could successfully uploading the hardware configuration but when I tried to upload the logic it goes to offline mode and gave me the following message: "Failed to upload or process Symbolic Memory Table. Please contact technical support". Then I connected the PME with port 1 (RS232), the LED of port 1 was steady on. When I started uploading the logic, most of the subroutines were uploaded subsequently but could not complete the uploading. Before completing the upload I received the following message: "Machine Edition Executable has encountered a problem and needs to close" and then PME was closed automatically. Anyone can help on how can I resolve this issue ?
  17. I have a devicenet network with slc 05 module 1747 sdn and two flex io systems with 1794adn adapters.  After a thunderstorm where lightning struck us near the facility The 1747sdn module had an indicator LED flashing in red and error code 91. I connected to the network through 1784 u2dn to be able to configure from RSnetworks, but the program only saw the Flex io, not the 1747sdn module. According to the manual, a resistance of 60 ohms must be measured between the blue and white wire, when measuring with the instrument it gave me 120 ohms, which seems to indicate that a resistance was missing at one of the ends, so I placed a resistance of 120 ohms in the end of the devicenet module, to get the 60 recommended measure. The module was kept with an error code 91 So I decided to change it for another card, when changing the card the module indicator LED was no longer in red but it was impossible for me to communicate with the card through Rsnetworx. The other two nodes of the devicenet network had to be disconnected so that I could see the module in the RS networks. I loaded the configuration of a similar network previously saved in the computer, but when connecting the other nodes of the network to load the scan list the network fell and I could not continue with the configuration of the module and now i can not see any node from Rsnetworx.
  18. EN2T/D, DNB/E, Devicenet Issues

    Issue suddenly began about 3 weeks ago...or I noticed it anyway. I opened devicenet to change a parameter in a drive but all nodes have a question mark on them and RSNetworks will not register them no matter what I do. I checked RSLinx and I see question marks on The DNB/E modules and on the EN2T/D modules. I made sure I had the eds files and AOI's for these modules but nothing changes. I have uninstalled Networx and changed versions several times but it comes up the same way. I am using RSLinx version 4.10 and now have RSNetworx version 28. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
  19. Hello forum! I'm using AB Compactlogix 1769 L35E CPU energized by 1769-PA2 power supply which is also supplying to 1769-SDN DeviceNet scanner, both via backplane. Trying to build a simply DN network connecting the scanner to a Balluff BNI DNT-104-000-Z004, which is a 16 PNP digital input block, since is only input module I rely that no extra power supply will be required. The problem is that when connecting both scanner and input block via my DN thick cable (Balluff BCC07YY), the input module does not energize. In fact I got no voltage reading when measuring voltage between scanner V+ and V- terminals. I measured voltage at 1769-PA2 power supply DC output (which is not in use) and its providing 24VDC, also scanner is powered on so I do not think the problem could be power supply nor backplane. Scanner display shows 92 number, scanner manual says that 92 error is "no devicenet power" and has the following description: No network power detected on DeviceNet port. Provide network power. Make sure the module drop cable is providing the proper power to the DeviceNet port. Which I do not get, is not the power supply from 1769-PA2 via backplane enough?  Is not the scanner supposed to provide voltage to the network? I've no grounding connection connected to PE yet (just between devices GND terminals)... is that a problem for testing this small network? It will be done soon but now I'm waiting for cable material. Actually I'm online using Studio5000 and have 1769-SDN DeviceNet scanner device declared at the project, there is no warning nor major fault displayed from the software. Thanks for reading.
  20. Hi, In conception phase we currently use GXWorks to upload programs to PLC (L-Series). In production mode, for different security reasons we would like to automate this transfer so that the operator does not access directly to the program. Do you know any tool allowing this by using command lines and not GXWorks UI ? (GXWorks does not seem to be "command line" friendly As a POC I  have automated the GXWorks UI in C#  (by simulating menu or buttons clicks) but I don't find it reliable (what if an unexpected popup "pops" ? ). PS : I am a totally noob in this PLC world so maybe I missed stg in the docs ... 
  21. Hi all I have this problem that has been bothering me for months. I have a DRT1-AD04H connected to C200hw-drm21 as a master. The signal to the drt is 4-20 ma which is fed from a conductivity sensor. I checked the signal and at the output of the sensor and the input of the DRT1 and it is ok. It changes according to the changes in the process. I am also able to force the output signal of the conductivity sensor.   My problem is that the reading on the IR Memory is showing maximum reading with some variations  always. The bit 15 changes to 1 when I remove the sensor from the process which should be 4 mA. But I haven't tried to force 4 mA. I have tried to replace by DRT2-AD04H but no luck. The only change was that it always show maximum reading with no variations and no matter what I do.   I have checked the broken wires LED "not led for my input"  and the PIN settings. I'm not using a software configrator. I also checked the terminal resistor. Also there are no NS or MS errors. I'm sure I'm checking the right address because I'm monitoring the change from SCADA and the PLC memory as well.
  22. Upload an application

    I want to upload an application from a QuickPanel  What software, decive or cable do i need? 
  23. when i try to upload a code to m340 it give me this message  "This isn't a valid PLC Address, or PLC is busy , or media is off." whatever i use usb or tcp/ip port, it don't always give me the message but most of the time it does and i have to unplug and replug the cable many time until it upload the code, i am sure it's not a cable problem what can it be?
  24. Devicenet error 80

    We have a Micrologix 1500 with 1769 Sdn. The scanner is showing error 80. The run program switch is in the run position and the run led is on. How does a 1769 scanner end up in idle mode? This unit has been running for 5 years. No programming has occurred to the plc or scanner since install. 
  25. Hello everybody, I have network from : PC - 192.168.3.11 PLC - 192.168.3.250 I change this option in FX5U PLC in GX Works3 for Network Ethernet port --> Application Setting -> Security -Disable Direct connect with MELSOFT : Enable/disable -DO not respond CPU module search : Respond / not respond and I upload program to PLC. After upload program to PLC and restart it was impossible to connect again. I Have ping between PLC and PC, but could't write program. Always writes me Error <ES:0180840b> So to disable Security Option you should to do : 1. Open Works3 2. New Project (Choose your PLC - FX5U) 3. Online menu 4. Specify Destination Communication 5. Click twice in PLC module 6. Set Connect via hub (In my case i connect PC and PLC directly !) 7. Choose IP Address ( in my project : 192.168.3.250 , PC must be in same network 192.168.3.X) 8. Give OK 9. Connect Test. With steps I disable security options and it was enable to connect to PLC and Write data on it. I Hope that will help to other with same problem.
