  1. Hello every one, I'm programming on Visilogic and when I build my project i have 1 warning on all my Nets : "Whenever the application uses a block delay or a loop - it may cause the PLC watchdog" and i don't know how to resolve it. Hope you can help me. Thanks, Baptiste. programme_automate_grenailleuse_V3.vlp
  2. I created an EtherNet/IP adapter, 8 bytes in, 8 bytes out. In the ControlLogix PLC I created a Generic Ethernet Adapter node, 2 DINT in, 2 DINT out, and got an error '16#012a Connection Request Error: Invalid output application path' at the PLC. Then I changed PLC to Generic Ethernet Adapter node, 8 SINT in, 8 SINT out. Now I get '16#0114 Electronic Keying Mismatch: Electronic keying product code and/or vendor ID mismatch'. What would be your advice to establish a working EtherNet/IP connection between PLC and Unistream?

Other important features in this release: HID Device support for devices such as scanners PostgreSQL support, in addition to SQL Server and MySQL UniApps localization for Korean & Italian, plus a new Korean virtual keyboard Read the version changes for more features at: https://unitronicsplc.com/software-unilogic-for-programmable-controllers/
  5. Hi everyone! Is there any way to set the PLC to RUN/STOP mode via ladder code? I want to have a button (it could be a physical one using one input) that once you press it, the PLC goes to STOP mode (every output turns off), and if you press it again the PLC goes to RUN mode and keeps on working like it was before stopping it. Thanks in advance, Gonzalo

Read about the application, and check out Engineer Claudio D’Angelo's rave review of the V350 PLC +HMI here!
  11. Hi, I got V130 PLC, and I need to show some analog measurements on my display. When I try to type in russian, it just shows * no matter what I type. How can I solve this? Thankful in advance, Nikola Ljubinkovic
  12. Hi, I have JZ20-J-T18 Jazz PLC, and U90 Ladder. I have 2 Analog Inputs that needs to be scaled. I have found a way to scale one of them, using SI 80-85 and my Analog Input (4-20 mA). Now i need to scale second one, but there is no SI for 2 or more scaling. My question is how to scale 2 Analog Inputs in U90 Ladder, if possible? Thankful in advance, Nikola Ljubinkovic

  15. Hi I have Unitronics Jazz Jz-20-T40 PLC. I have all the newest software and PLC system. When i power ON my PLC, and then using USB i connect it to my laptop, connection is working fine and i can see PLC from laptop. Then, when I download PLC Program to my Jazz PLC, it downloads normally, and as it should, PLC reboots. On my other Jazz PLCs it turns ON again, and it's still connected to my laptop. But, on this specific model, when i finish download, and try to connect to it again, it displays 4-5 messages that says restart U90, PC and so on. When I try to connect to it again, I get same message. I tried to restart U90, still the same. I really don't want to restart laptop, so I tried to unplug and plug USB. It shows me that i don't have needed drivers for this device. I click update device software, it says it's already newest, as it should. Then i try to install from U90, it says that I already have it. Then I unplug and plug again, and everything works normally. Every time I download, i need to unplug and plug USB twice, before I can again debug my PLC. It just needs to be reconnected twice, without installing anything at all. It confuses me a lot. Please help. Thankful in advance, Nikola Ljubinkovic
  16. Hi, I have Jazz PLC JZ20-J-T40, and i have 6 Screens on it. I have downloaded my program successfully, and PLC has been working properly for a wery long time, (two months to be exact). After I turned OFF and ON my PLC, it didn't displayed screens I have on it, so I thought that I have burned it, because of power or something. I measured power supply, it was OK, so I connected Laptop to PLC. I have successfully conected to PLC, and went online. I have some MBs on plc that i change using plc tasters, tried that, it works just fine. Everything works properly, except PLC Display. U90 Ladder has an option to debug display online, so I tried that on my laptop, it shows displays as it should, but on PLC just blank screen. I can see that PLC display is glowing a little, it just doesen't show any text that it should show. I have tried to download again, nothing changed. I tried to update Operating System, it says it's up to date. Is there a way of fixing this? Best Regards, Nikola Ljubinkovic

  18. i so far finished my ladder programming in unitronics V1040 plc and created a webpage to use in raspberry pi to view the same HMI screen in my webpage at the same time whatever output i get from the Plc HMI. now i hv the problem is, how can i communicate plc and raspberry pi.can i connect the i/o and o/p of both plc and raspberry pi . is any coding ive to write in the raspberry pi terminal for the communicate with plc. please advice me.
  19. hello, i wonder if there is a vision PLC library for proteus 8 so i can draw my electrical wiring and if not, please if you have any idea let me know .. thank you
  20. Hi, I have Unitronics PLC V130-J-TR20 PLC, which is a master, and two Jazz JZ20-J-T40, which are slaves. I need two of the slave Jazz PLC's to communicate with master V130 PLC. I have made configuration in PLC Program for read and write, but it's not working properly. When i set bit for request to read PLC3 (MB100), it reads it normally. But, when i try to read PLC2, it reads same value that I have on PLC3, although Communication is OK with PLC2. I have read example project, and used it to configure communication between PLC's, like you can see in the images. Regardless of what I do, one of the PLC's is not working properly, communication says it's OK, but keeps reading values from other PLC. IP addresses are different, of course, and i have typed them correctly into the MODBUS IP Configuration, like in the image. On my Jazz PLC's I have done everything like Example project in U90 Ladder says. Is there a way of fixing this? Thankful Nikola Ljubinkovic

    OPC Communication Slow

    Hi, I have two Jazz JZ20-J-T40 PLC-s, and one V130-J-TR20 PLC. I am using zView SCADA. I tried to connect them via Ethernet by using switch, but I cannot use two different PLCs on this SCADA. Then i tried to connect them to SCADA via uniOPC, but communicating is just too slow. I have just one bit that goes from 0 to 1 in 0.5 seconds, and back to 0 in 0.5 (1 second pulse), just for testing, still it's too slow. It runs normally for like 2,5 seconds, and then just stops, and changes in 4-10 seconds, or just freezes for 2-3 minutes, and then changes. My PC Spec are not in the way of this, I am sure of that, i have tried it on my weakest and strongest laptop, still exactly the same results, too slow with just one bit for each of the PLCs, that is 3 bits total. Does anyone had the same problem, is there a way of fixing this? Regards Nikola Ljubinkovic
  22. Hi, I'm using Unitronics PLC JZ20-J-T40, and ZView SCADA. I have successfully downloaded my program into PLC, and tested communication via usb (Serial), and via Ethernet (MJ20-ET1). It's all working properly. Problem begins when i try to connect my PLC to scada PC. With USB everything is working normally, but it's not an option for me to work with usb connection. I want to work with Ethernet communication between PLC and SCADA. What should i do to make it work? Regards Nikola Ljubinkovic
  23. I've done some searching but have not found an answer to this particular problem yet. I have tried configuring my Unitronics PLC to send email, and have followed the instructions for initializing and connecting the socket connection to a gmx email host. However, I have noticed that when I telnet to the mail.gmx.com server through port 465 (the only port I can connect through), I get a connection for only about 20 seconds before it is 'closed by foreign host'. It seems like maybe the port is not correct? I have tried 25 (which does not let me connect) and 465 because I found those ports online. I think the same thing is happening in the ladder code, because i briefly get a successful indication of connection, but then it gets reset. Has anyone seen this issue before? I was under the impression that GMX was a validated email host to use with these PLCs, so am I doing something wrong?
  24. Hello! Another one topic PLC/E-mail. Unfortunately, I'm not able to copy with the problems. I use the ladder from Example (of course). In CMD I write "telnet pop.gmail.com 25" and I can see the protocol type used by the server. After that i tape "pin pop.gmail.com" and see the IP address of the server. The first change that I make in the ladder is IP in "TCP/IP - Tcp connect" block. The new IP is the same as IP address of the server. The second change is in the "E-mail" block. "From:" e-mail is Support@unitronics.com and the receiving e-mail is "..........gmail.com". When I press "connect" in HMI the system is able to connect. However, when I press "Send E-mail" there are two mistakes: "The server cannot receive data (DATA mode error)" and "From address format incorrect " I have tried many settings but non of them was workable. Please, give me an advise where might be the mistake!
  25. Hi, I have a customer that is looking to use a Unitronics PLC to add additional outputs to their existing system. The main system runs on a .net application, so the PLC would be mainly used to set/reset a MB or Output at a particular time. The response time needs to be pretty fast, likely a few milliseconds from PC send to output state change. Which communication method would be the fastest or would they be roughly the same? - PCOM - .NET driver - Custom protocol with short command sent from PC and received via FB protocol scan. Just getting a feel on how I should build the PLC communications class. Thanks,
