  1. Hi; If program Upload is password protected, you cannot upload it without the password. If they set the Properties to Block PC Access, then you are out of luck -- all communications is blocked -- You will have to get a new JAZZ PLC and program it with a new program - Your Way. BUT If the Block PC Access, has NOT been Set, then You can download your new program overtop and replace the previous program. ( The password required for the old program will also be gone with the old program) DanT
  2. Hi; The USP-104-B10 10 Inch HMI and USP-156-B10 15 Inch without the CPU Module attached will act as a remote HMI via VNC. The CPU Module is required for the PLC program, so the Screen is focused on the HMI and other communications. DanT
  3. Hi; Looking at the picture you posted of the new installation. Further to Alex's Post - System is not plug and play POSITION is VERY IMPORTANT Do You Understand how Unitronics I/O Module addressing is done when you use the EX-A2X Expansion Module? Now post an image -Screen Shot of the VisiLogic Hardware configuration of the system . VisiLogic - View HW_configuration. Where is the module placed in the configuration? Is this replacing and existing module, or added? If it is replacing an existing module - what was the previous
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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.

  9. 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
  10. 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 communic
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. Hi; All your Windows OS's have latest Updates? Manually Check Updates? DanT
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. Hi; 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. 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 ) Are the PLC and PC on the same network?
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
