  1. Hi, gurus. Upgrading the existing network of four Vision 260 units, working as 3+1 master-slaves Modbus IP for V700 PLC one by one. After changing one slave unit all network crashed. New PLC works fine by itself, but not in network. How change the part of scrip for Modbus IP wrote for Vision 260 to V700, they have different sockets ###, plus FB for V700 is different from VIsion 260? Please advise, Rgds Alex.
  2. Good day, Joe. Just download your program and run.......... Unfortunately the Rate meter doesn’t work at all, it sets for 360/min and doesn’t change at all, even when counter is "off". Did You have time to check my Visilogix program? Any comments? Have a nice day and thanks again for your time and help. Rgds. Alex.
  3. Good day, Joe. Thanks again for your help, I didn’t check your program yet, because I decide to overcome my problems by myself, so please do me favor again and review what I made, programm working fine, almost exactly how i want, only one problem that I can’t figure out - when I switched from main screen to any other, that request a upload set value for "parts per box" or "Ideal rate" and press "enter key" - my reading for the main counter on the main screen rewrite to 0??? If I press the "Enter" key when I am on thye main screen - nothing happened and counter represent current value for the main counter. I couldn’t find where I made a mistake, so hope You could figure this out. This is my first Vision program, that I made from the scratch, before I just maintained Vision programs, that was made by other programmer. Changed a parameters, write simple upgrades, troubleshoot, e.t.c. Attached is my program. With best wishes, Alex. Counter_Rate meter.vlp
  4. Good day, Joe. Attached is the sample of program for my application, just a bare-born made in RsLogix500, for C-More HMI from Automation Direct(HMI program not included, because it just a sample). If You could convert it to Vision - gonna be grate and save me time. Or for quick suggestion, just convert the part, that belong to Rate meter. Thanks in advance, Alex. RATE METER.pdf
  5. Hi, Joe. Thanks for prompt response, I was sure that my problem based on luck of my experience with Unitronics, I picked up Vision 120-22-R1 just because of low price, compare to MicroLogix 1000 with external HMI the price is about 50% cheaper. I like your idea to convert my script in RsLogix to Vision, I just need to find PDF converter to upload my file. Thanks again, regards Alex.
  6. Hi, Guru. I`ve posted today more information about my project. I am using regular digital inputs PNP from FFphoto sensor with max. about 2 pulses per second and almost done with all counters and HMI screens, only one problem that I still have - can`t create a Rate meter for the main counter(there are three independent counters in my application, the main one "parts per day" needs to have Rate value, so operator could see on the HMI screen how many parts machine done during the day and with what speed/rate in "parts per minute"). This rate value doesn`t need to have variable scaling, just constant "parts per minute" and display refresh rate about 2-3 seconds. The idea was to build the application. that copy a hardwired Count/Rate meter, using V120. I have a lot machines equipped with RedLion Count/Rate meter, model PAXLCR http://www.redlion.net/Products/DigitalandAnalog/Counters/Batch/PAXLCR.html, that I programmed and installed couple years ago, but they are not user-friendly for the operators and has only two relay outputs, that not enough for my new application for 10 new machines, that I have to equipped with Counter/Rate meters and built control system, based on them. Will appreciate any help to overcome this problem. Brgds.Alex.
  7. Hi, there. O`k, here is more details. As a sample let`s take an advanced hardwired Count/Rate meter from any brand, for instance RedLion PAXLCR00, here are some tech.data: http://www.redlion.net/Products/DigitalandAnalog/Counters/Batch/PAXLCR.html GENERAL DESCRIPTION The PAXLCR is a versatile meter that provides a single or dual counter with rate indication, scaling and dual relay outputs. The 6-digit display has 0.56" high digits with adjustable display intensity. The display can be toggled manually or automatically between the selected counter and rate values. The meter has two signal inputs and a choice of eight different count modes. These include bi-directional, quadrature and anti-coincidence counting, as well as a dual counter mode. When programmed as a Dual Counter, each counter has separate scaling and decimal point selection. Rate indication is available in all count modes. The Rate Indicator has separate scaling and decimal point selection, along with programmable display update times. In addition to the signal inputs, the User Input can be programmed to perform a variety of meter control functions. What I need - just to build based on V120 the application with about same functions, to count parts per day(main counter); parts per box(second counter, programmable preset with output) and rate meter/indicator for the main counter in parts per minutes. I have only one digital input from FF photo sensor to complete this application. I complete all counters already and my problem is the lack of many function of VisiLogic software(versus of AB RSLogic, that let me complete this application in 30 minutes and get all that I need) - I stocked with Rate indicator. I don`t need to have this parameter scalable, parts per minutes is constant value, Display update time is constant as well - 3 sec, so I need to have on my main HMI screen current value of main counter(parts per day) and current value of Rate(parts per minutes)- all from one input. Hope, now is all clear, but I was sure that meaning “Rate Meter” for counters is common alike RPM for motors. With best regards,Alex.
  8. Hi Unitronics gurus. I am a new player in Unitronics world, just move from AB. Need some help with my project, this is a simple three stage counter with three inputs and two timing outputs, I almost done with main counter, butch counter and just stock with Rate indicator for the main product counter. I want to get rate value displayed on the screen for the main product counter in parts per minutes. Will be appressiated for any help, with best regards Alex.
  9. New with Unitronics, just move from the AB world, running the project with Vision 120 that include couple separate counters and I need to have one Rate Indicator for the main product counter in parts per minutes, that displayed value on the HMI screen and also stored in memory. Please help. Brgds.Alex.
