  1. I seem to recall that there is a read socket status command under the COM>TCP/IP menu
  2. 1) is the common for the relay output connected? 2)Did you supply 24VDc to the V1 and 0V for the 24VDC digital outputs??? see page 4 of the install guide
  3. There's a programming port required for the Jazz series. Contact your local distributor and inquire about a JZ-PRG.
  4. Well this is partially solved. I can use explicit messaging and get data from the block if 1)No implicit messaging is active 2)I’m not in online mode with my PC If implicit is active there are two extra bytes inserted in to the explicit communication which the block then interprets as the class is 0xFF96 instead of the 0x96 which is declared. With the PC connected in online mode the status is always -1. Disconnect the PC and and disable implicit messaging and everything works. Support has everything including the wire shark files showing what is being transmitted including the extra bytes. I’ll update this once they provide a solution.
  5. Hi Pista, See the update post above yours I believe they got approved at the same time so you probally couldn’t see it. yes the scanner initialisation is 4 when I try to communicate as there is implicit meesaging going on as well. I believe three bytes is correct as all I need to send as data is 0x41 0x00 0x00. Or am I mistaken and I need to send 12 as the service code,class,instance,attribute which consist of 9 bytes need to be included in the bytes to copy? The help file is a little light on this function @Cara Bereck Levy
  6. Update to this I apparently missed the explicit general message function block when looking at this. I’ve got it configured However when it runs I get a -1 in the status message every time. I shut off the implicit messaging and just set it up for explicit that didn’t work either. Screen shot attached. My next step is to wire shark it in the morning and see if the PLC is actually transmitting, or somehow is stepping on itself and not. anyone else have a suggestion as to what to check or try?
  7. You have to put the text in and then when the protocol send is activated in the ladder it will send the specified message from the linked MI
  8. Has any one ever set up a UniStream to communicate with an Ethernet/IP IO-Link Master block? or accomplish what is described below. I can communicate with the block and configure the block itself, however I am unable to set parameters in IO-Link devices connected to the block using an explicit message. I need to send a message with the following: CIP Service: 0x32 CIP Class ID: 0x96 CIP Instance ID: 1 Attribute 0x03 (read) 0x02(write) Service Data 0x41 (Index I want to read/Write) followed by the data I want to write if I'm doing that operation Rockwell has a message composer that allows you to set all this up, I don't see it available in the UniStream nor have I found a way to do it as the Get Single and Get All are 0x0E and 0x01 service codes, which looks like: Soure Elemenets are data I'm sending (Index to be read or write+data to write) Destination is where the data I'm reading gets put. Here are the messages using an ODVA tool Read Write Links to Balluff documentation and their technotes(which are all AB related and all their tech support could provide) Balluff Ethernet/IP Master Block BNI006A https://htmsensors-my.sharepoint.com/:b:/p/cameronm/EVAORRXz3UFIop2JuGVA_IEBmGORnCL_G8tLOIrm60Tp7w?e=VRd0vH Balluff IO Link Module BNI007R https://htmsensors-my.sharepoint.com/:b:/p/cameronm/EYJtc4q22K1Ai4TSbhiR2qwB_EWZ6cms43TnJ0y_e0eiMw?e=OcrPz4 Balluff Technote https://htmsensors-my.sharepoint.com/:b:/p/cameronm/EYhgfHdOL1hIk3Z1r8poKDoBLp1NROuyrQZbASe--i5ESw?e=QhVkIh
  9. No the RJ-45 port on the V570 is an Ethernet port. Why not make a conversion cable to go between the RJ -11 serial port on the V570 and your drive?
  10. I2C is not a native protocol for the UniStream. Typically it's used for 2 wire communications between EEPROMs, A/D and D/A converters, I/O interfaces. It's synchronous, so there's a shared clock which is controlled by the Master. If the master is the UniStream I suppose you could use I?O to do it using a clock pulse from an output and an input that feeds to an array of bits that you shift every clock pulse. You'd have to code it all though so could be very time consuming, your probably better off looking for a third party device that can convert to serial or other.
  11. Modbus TCP driver will work
  12. OK the operational state means that the PLC is unable to talk to the URB(it's not establishing a connection) 0- Establishing Connection (in Progress ) When you pinged the URB was that from a PC or the UniStream?? 1)Trying pinging the URB from the UniStream via Uniapps->Network->Ethernet->Ping 2)You've set IP address for both the panel and CPU(your PC will use the Panel IP to communicate with the PLC, the PLC will use the CPU IP to communicate with the URB) 3) Is it an isolated URB and PLC are on an isolated network or are you going over the top?? 4) how did you set the IP on the URB?
  13. No you don't need one. I asked because there was a bug at one point where the system would not recognize the power modules and that was the status you'd get. Check that your modules are seated properly. Check the Operational State of the URB in it's Struct it should be 6 if the UniStream is communicating with it(if its another value the URB failed check the help file for the reason) Check the number of expansion modules that the URB believes are connected. If those are correct check the Communication Error Code in the URB Communication struct (it should be a 0 if its not contact support)
