  1. Hi; In VisiLogic, Under Help Examples, there are examples of how to implement the EX-RC1. As Joe stated, you have to setup and program the EX-RC1 with the Configuration, then import that into the Main PLC and have the subroutines installed in the Main PLC. DanT
  2. Hi; In Help -Samples - Basic Ladder functions, there is a Sample program for using LONG INTS Shows Multiply, Divide and how to display. In Help, Search > Long DanT
  3. Hi; In the Unitronics Downloads for UniStream, there is a file UniLogic Examples. There are a couple of examples for Using the Databases. You may find these useful to review for your project, along with the Information in Help. www.unitronicsplc.com Software UniStream DanT
  4. Hi; Looking at the Installation Manual for the USC-B10-T42, Page 10, the wiring you described is for Input wiring, sink Note the description for sink in the note below : Use sink input wiring to connect a sourcing (pnp) device. From this, you have the Inputs wired for PNP Sensors ( and your meter reading appear to indicate PNP -- assuming the 24 VDC input is when the sensor is sensing a target) Are your sensors PNP or NPN ???? -- Make and Model DanT
  5. Hi; VisiLogic -- Under the Connection Tab, Just above Communications & OS - Choice of Text or Binary File Handy if you have to change out a PLC and want to restore the data to the new one - like timers that have been changed, or MI/ML/etc. that are used like constants IP Addresses, ASCII Strings, Data Table Pointers, etc. Useful in troubleshooting, or preserving data before making a major change.

  6. Hi; How Many IO-D16A3+RO16 do you have? 1 or 4 ? IF you Have Only 1 IO-D16A3-RO16 -- where did you place it in the sequence -- Before or after the IO-AI8? , and did you adjust the Hardware Setup in the V1210 Accordingly? If you have 4 IO-D16A3-RO16 then : The EX-A2x can handle a Maximum of 8 I/O Modules. DI16 + DI16 + RO16+ RO16 + D16A3/RO16 + D16A3/RO16 + D16A3/RO16 + D16A3/RO16 + IO-AI8 = 9 Expansion! (96 Relay Out ) IF THIS IS YOUR CASE, THEN you will have to remove the IO-AI8, And Buy a EX-RC1 and use the CANBUS Port on the V1210 to talk to it and the IO-AI8 The EX-RC1 is an Expansion Port Adapter Module to add more I/O modules to a Vision System. It uses CANBUS protocol to interface to the V1210. Under Help - Examples- V900-Communications-EX-RC1-EX-RC1 with Analog - this will guide you for the Interface required for both the V1210 and the EX-RC1. Also check Help. The EX-RC1 has some smarts to do the communications and transfer the Data. The EX-RC1 has to be programmed to set it up properly. DanT
  7. HI; How are you going to communicate with the VFD? ( Modbus RTU (Serial) or Modbus TCP (Ethernet) ) ???? Do you have a communications card in the V430? Which one ? The USB Programming Port in the V430 is for Programming ONLY, not for communicating to other devices. In VisiLogic under Help, there are Example programs Look for the Communications and Modbus. Open and understand them and read the Modbus Help in the Help data. Learn how MODBUS works. In the Manual for the VFD Review how to communicate with the VFD over Modbus Locate and understand the registers you need to work with. Get the communications setup working. Write a simple program to communicate with the VFD. Post your issues and program. People can guide you. DanT
  8. Hi Louis; Contact Unitronics Support directly -- or call them - get their number from your local distributor. Their Asian and European support is from Israel North American support is out of Boston support@unitronicsplc.com DanT
  9. Hi; Nearest USB Stick -- How big was it? Better be > 4GB !!!! Contact Unitronics Support to help you out -- Support@unitronicsplc.com or call them. DanT
  10. Hi; Are you able to vary the Pulse Width and observe it on the o'scope? ( remember 100 = 10.0 % width 1 decimal place ) DanT
  11. Hi; What kind of load did you use: The NPN output is Open Collector, No Pull Up. Add a 2k2 or greater resistor from output to V+ and check on o'scope. and scope ground on CM4 DanT
  12. Hi; All your Windows OS's have latest Updates? Manually Check Updates? DanT
  13. Hi; What Model Jazz Controller? What are the settings in the JAZZ for Serial Com? Info Mode Press I Key for 8-10 seconds Left or right arrow to System Enter, then Left/Right to Com Parameters Enter then left/right Baud Rate : 9600 ( Default ) Data Bits : 7 Parity : Even Flow Control : N Timeout : 0.55 Restore Defaults -- Ignore unless above are different - Press enter to restore I Key multiple times to back out to user screen The DB9 Dongle in the JAZZ Programming Kit is MJ10-22-CS10 ( MJ10-22-CS25 will NOT WORK with JAZZ ) OS in PLC updated ? -- Check That ( Info Mode - Settings ) Vx.xx ( Bxx) HW:x Try adjusting the Time Out Can you Go Online and look at SB and SI Values? Is there a program in the PLC already? Using MODBUS By Chance or a serial device? DanT
  14. Posted Thursday at 11:19 AM COPIED HERE AND EXPANDED Hi; Having Issues trying to communicate with the PLC via Ethernet ? Some Guidelines : Is the Ethernet Cable Plugged into the Ethernet Port ? and are the LED's Flashing for connectivity? The Expansion port uses a RJ45 Connector also, and is often confused with the Ethernet port. Are the PLC and the PC on the SAME IP Base Address Structure ( network)? e.g. 192.168.1.x If the connection is direct, consider a Crossover Ethernet Cable. Can you PING the PLC IP Address from the PC and get a reply? Check the PLC using INFO Mode ( Password 1111) Ethernet Upper lines show Ethernet IP and current status Middle allows you to view and set parameters - IP, Sockets Press Monitor to see if any data is reaching the PLC ( selectable by the port ) Check the PLC NAME ( This is the PLC's Password - needed for Ethernet Downloads ) Name is under Version - Software - On New Units -- it is a number ( This can be changed in your VisiLogic Program) In VisiLogic : ---| | -----=------PLC Name -- Set the IP ---Set up Sockets SB2 SB2 is a Power up one shot that runs only 1 time in the program - at Power UP - used to set parameters Always set up the Ethernet Settings within the first few Nets in the MAIN Program ( NOT in a subroutine !) ( Same for Serial Ports ) There are default settings for sockets, but they can be changed to what you want them to do. Check Help for the default sockets When attempting to download the first time using the Ethernet Port setting up an Ethernet Connection the first time, there are 2 options 1 Check the PLC Name in Info Mode and the IP Parameters. Under communications and setting, set the Ethernet Parameters using the NAME from the PLC ( After the program is downloaded, the name can be changed to your PLC Name ) 2 download the program thru the serial port or USB Port -- this way the PLC Name is Set YOUR way
