  1. @DanT, Thanks for your answer, however I have tried different things with examples but couldn't make it right. @All Let me explain the connection first. There is a RJ11 socket on V700 with 6 pins. My device has a DB9 connector but it has just active 3 pins. So I made a connection as attached. V700's DIP switch settings are as factory settings, which is set for RS232. Are these steps right till now? Device's book says that device doesn't send unsolicited messages, it only responds to commands from a host. And as I wasn't sure that I can send commands, I just tried to send ON command so I could see if I could do that when it starts. I couldn't get any results. Here is the initializing of COM1 port. Pls see "init.png" file. Here is the ON command send ladder that I made. Pls see "sendONcommand.png" file. And please see CommandStructures and CommandsON files for the example and explanation of that Command from the Device's book. Could you please let me know where am I doing wrong?
  2. Hi all, I want to use a V700 and a device which also use RS232 connection protocol. There are some datas that should be read and controlling of ON/OFF status of the device. However, this will be the first time that I will use RS232 communication. How can I program this? For example, there is a command that I need to use below. I need to read those values and seperate the temperatures to different MI's. I believe I succeed to initialise communication port but not really sure. $TEA: Read all temperatures Command with checksum and carriage return = $TEAA4B9<cr> Response: $TEA,T1,T2,T3,T4,<crc-16><cr> T1 through T4 are internal temperatures in degrees C. T1 = Temperature 1 T2 = Temperature 2 T3 = Temperature 3 T4 is inactive (returns “000”). The temperature fields are always 3 characters long and are rounded to the nearest degree. Temperatures less than 100 °C have leading zeroes. Example: $TEA,086,040,031,000,3798<cr> corresponding to T1 = 86°C, T2 = 40°C, T3 = 31°C and where 3798 is the checksum and <cr> is the carriage return.
  3. I just added TankLevelLOW inverted contact to the outputs and solved this problem. @hotwires My question to you is, I will remove that Vector Fill function for normal use, right? And again thank you very much for your help.
  4. Thank you very much for your help, Joe Tauser and your great effort "hotwires". It works great in "Automatic Mode", except when all the tanks are empty. If they all are empty, it opens all tank outputs but they should be closed at that situation. I tried to add an inverted contact but didn't help. I'm trying to find a solution for it.
  5. Hi Joe, Thanks for your effort. However, when I turn on Automatic Mode, it opens all outputs. Tanks empty/full situations are not applicable. Thanks for your effort. However,
  6. Hi Joe, I have uploaded the file to "WeTransfer" folder. Please find it attached. https://we.tl/dspvOgEbT0 Thanks in advance.
  7. hi guys, is there anybody to help me? thanks in advance.
  8. Hi Flex727, Please see my answers below. 1) I want anybody to use ManualMode when AutomaticMode is active. If I use a positive transition, somebody can open Manual Mode when Automatic Mode is active. 2) That thread is a part of another logic, I didn't see a problem on placing it in a ladder, but if you say that will cause issues, I can move it to another ladder. 3) This is the same as #1. These inverted contacts restricts switching between automatic/manual mode. 4) If Automatic Mode is active, you cannot use Manual mode. There are also some other threads in different ladders for the other 2 tanks.
  9. Hi all, I'm working on a project, where we use Vision V570 and V200-E1B. I wrote some codes in order to automize the switching of 3 tanks regarding their level. I wrote something like below. Here is the logic; When operator resets the situation of the tank, tank status turns to full, when tanks pressure goes below a certain level, its status goes to "empty" and PLC switches to the other full tanks. The problem is, if I reset first tank's status when second or third tank is working, it switches directly to the first tank, before waiting that active tank to be empty. So this causes some tanks stays unused. How can we fix this? PLC should wait the active tank to be empty and after that it should switch to the other one. Thanks in advance for your help.
  10. I mean 0 - 20 mili V. Yes I configured the input as 0-10 V. Oxygen transducer has 2 wires, so you don't need to feed this, it gives 0-20 mV output according to O2 composition. As we have sold that sytem with Jazz PLC, I don't have the chance to try it. The value was "0" when I connect oxygen transducer with other 4-20 mA pressure transmitters.
  11. Hi all, I have a project, where I need 2 x 4-20 mA (2-wire) pressure transmitter and 1 oxygen transducer with 0-20 mV output. In the past, I tried to use that oygen transducer with Vision V570 and V200-18-E3XB snap-in I/O. We have succesfully read the input with that configuration. However, last week I tried to connect that oxygen transducer to a Jazz JZ20-T18 alongside with 2 x 4-20 mA pressure transmitter and we couldn't get the measurement from that oxygen transducer. I don't know what the problem really is but I thought that the resolution or the un-isolated inputs can be the problem(s). Jazz has 10 bit, un-isolated inputs and Vision has 14 bit isolated ones. Which PLC model should I use? We need touch-screen display and a model with a lower price would be better, of course if it is possible. Thanks in advance.
  12. Thanks all for your response. I used a subtract function and high filtering but didn't really help. @Joe Tauser Thanks for the example but I couldn't really get the concept of the second net. When tank pressure is equal or below set point, MB0 energized. And when MB0 energized, Output 0 is not energized.
  13. Hi there! I am using on a project and one part of it is filling a tank to a specified pressure and then giving an audible alarm. Pressure value will be added from the PLC, and then when the tank connected to the pneumatic line of the device, it will fill the tank to the specified pressure. It is very similar to the tyre inflation stations. However, in my program filling solenoid is not very stable and it opens/closes too fast, like 3 times in 2 seconds. What is the best way to program it for a more stable version? I have used a "Compare" function, which compares the actual pressure with the set value and it opens the filling valve. Thanks in advance.
  14. Yes, "bit" was an MI. I tried to activate the filter from the Hardware configuration but I cannot see the filter section on that screen. I am using V570 and V200-18-E1B. Doesn't have this PLC and I/O filtering?
  15. Hi all, I have a project with an analog input which connected to a level transmitter. If I directly show the input on the screen, it can change 2-3 times in a second as it is not very stable. So I tried to solve it with sampling with a timer. Timer runs as soon as PLC starts to run. When timer reaches to its "set time", it copies the data on the analog input to a bit and reset itself. On the screen I see the "bit" value. The problem is after some amount of time, lets say 3-4 days, it stops to copying the value and display shows the same value even if the level reaches to full. What do you think? What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance.
