  1. Look at the installation guide. There's a jumper you need to move.
  2. Take a look at using the jumps found under the jumps and links tab on your HMI
  3. If you are connecting directly to a PC are you using a cross over cable?? Typically you need a patch or straight thru cable to go between the PLC and AP. Not knowing which AP you a using I can't really comment on how they function, but yes it is possible to do what you want. I always prefer a wired connection for industrial applications or industrial Wi-Fi access points. There's always noise and if your using home or business APs they can get lost.
  4. Two things to try. 1) With your project open Project -> System Images Change an image and then click on Restore all to defaults Download the project. 2)If the system images don't fix it then Add a font into the font handler and download your project again.
  5. Peter in your hardware config did you set the High Speed Inputs up as a shaft encoder?

    Very Basic Ladder Logic Question

    Or if you have made lots of program changes with multiple down loads try downloading a blank program into the unit, reboot it and then put your program back in.
  7. You should be able to sonlong as the con port itself isn’t damaged in any way. The programming cable should allow you to communicate on either port 1 or port 2 on the plc with out changing a setting on the PC just simply unplug from port 2 and plug into port 1(so long as the rs 232 com settings are the same)
  8. As Flex said the ASCII is store with to characters per MI, To test go online and change the data type to HEX and insert 3333 in to MI120 and 3636 in to MI 121 You should see 3366 on the display If you dont check the String pattern and make sure it's long enough to display what your trying to show.
  9. Did you us a direct coil more than once for that output? Or is the output ina subroutine which is not being called?
  10. Is there a space on the end of one of the names?
  11. Look at the pwm output in the help file. Frewquncy and duty cycle can be controlled by push buttons you adding on the HMI
  12. Check with your local distributor, however most often the screen is not replaceable and you will have to replace the PLC.

    Run-time error 3709

    I've seen it a couple of times. Clean the log files out and remove them, the error will go away but I've never been able to find a root cause. I suspect a memory leak in windows but have never had the time to track it down.
  14. For some HTL outputs external diodes are required in order to make them operate and replace a NPN or PNP output. Also worth noting that your output voltage is typically your min supply voltage -3V are you still meeting the min voltage for a logical high?
  15. Why not run 2 timers using the socket connected SB? Timer 1 monitors how long a socket is connected for if it becomes to long close the connection and re-initialize the socket Timer 2 monitors how long between connections if it times out re-initialize the socket. I'm not sure you need to re-boot the PLC just re-initializing the socket should clear up the issue.
