  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Hi; All your Windows OS's have latest Updates? Manually Check Updates? DanT
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. HI; V200-18-E46B and V200-18-E62B have NPN Outputs rated at 100kHz HSO/PWM (others are only 50kHz NPN Out) Vision Models V350 and V430 with TRxx Have NPN outputs rated at 200kHz Max DanT
  10. Hi; Good Catch Flex, Brain Missed that MB part, SB2 is a one shot on POWER UP Only- First Scan thru. If you want to re-initialize the setup , do the re-init with a -|P|- in the same net, in parallel with the SB2 . DanT

  12. Hi Crin; This should be in the Vision Forum. In VisiLogic, Under View, click on HW Configuration Then click on the SM70-J-R20 Box Look for the Tab High Speed Inputs Top is for the Hi Speed Counter Lower is for Rate. Set them up and linearize the Rate to the Scale you want. DanT
  13. Hi; The PNP outputs on the JZ20-UA24 are not set up for high speed outputs. There is an example program for the JZ20-T1 which apparently can do a High Speed output when setup properly. Consider stepping up to a SAMBA SM35-J-TA24. This unit has the HSO Functions- with step control - as well as Analog In and Out. Will cost more, but save a lot of time and effort(grief) attempting with the JAZZ, and get a color screen as well. DanT
  14. Hi; UniLogic 1.26.90 and later Method 1 : Having UniLogic on a local computer and a USB DOK PLC UniLogic Management Remote Update USB Link to the PLC ( Ethernet if you know the IP of the PLC) I used my DOK and started it remotely. You can also select a SD Card BE SURE the USB DOK is > 4 GB !! Method 2 : Setting up a USB Action File on a DOK for a NON LOCAL UPGRADE - firmware or project Help - Search Actions - UniStreamPLC(PLC without Built-in HMI Panel) There is a checkbox for Firmware Upgrade and Project Upgrade Recommend testing these with a handy UniStream PLC before deployment. DanT
  15. Hi; Have you downloaded the zip file with UniStream Sample programs? -- Just under the UniStream Download. There are a large number of example programs done by topic. There are a couple of sample programs using the UID-0808THS in there to examine and help you get going. As Joe Tauser and others re-iterates often here : Take a crack at it and create your own code and then we can help you along. Dant
