Hi

Communication Driver Error (206). I changed the cable, changed the computer, COM port number, baud rate and nothing,  my operating system is  in windows 10, don't know if its windows 10 problem,

  Someone could help me? I don't know what to do anymore.

Thanks

We need to know which PLC, what version of VisiLogic, what communications method, and what physical connection you are using. It would also be helpful to know if you've tried other connection methods and if you were able to connect previously, and if so, what changed? Also, are you trying to connect to a new PLC or one that already has a project loaded?

Where did you get a virtual PLC?

+1 to this.  I'd like to know, too.

Or do you think that because you have Visilogic working with what you set up as a V130, then this is your "virtual plc" and you can test it?

Edited for clarity many minutes after posting.

I don't fully understand the significance of your screenshot, except to say that the V130 window is what comes up when you try to use Remote Access, or actually get online with a physical unit and choose to display the HMI during that.  But in the screenshot there are no power lines showing that you are online ok.

What is the highlighted folder selection meant to represent?

cheers, Aus

I guess you´re using Remote Access software to show your Vision 130 and you believe it is a simulator.  However keep in mind that all Unitronics software requires a physical PLC in order to view online data.  There is not simulator.

I have a problem in serial physical communication as well as virtual communication
i mean  I can not communicate with the automaton I found 10 miles means that does not work anymore 😫

So you have a V130 10 miles away, and you want to connect to it?  Is this what you are saying?  I think this is just a translation issue, in that you are calling Remote Access your "virtual communication"?

Hello, I have a similar problem, I have a PLC V350-J-TR20, the Visilogic version is 9.8.79 Build 0 Beta, 
I have the RS232 physical connection with the MJ10-22-CS25 cable, the PLC already has a program loaded, 
the last program has a modbus configuration that is possibly causing me the error, what do you recommend doing?

Thank you

A few more questions  :

What is the Communications setup in the PLC   ( V130, V350 )?

Port 2  -- Ethernet or RS232/485  or None?

 Which Port is being used for Programming?

Which Port is being used for Modbus?        Is the Modbus   Serial ( RTU) or Ethernet (TCP)  ?

 What is the Baud Rate  for the Com Port(s)?   If unknown, this can be checked via Info Mode.

Is the Modbus set up as Master - Doing the polling?

                                            or as Slave - Responding to requests for data?

Are you using COM 1 for Modbus and Programming?

            Using COM1 as a Modbus Master and for Programming is asking for trouble     Communications Clashing - In and Out

            Is there a way in the program to disable the Modbus Communication and allow the port to be used for programming ?  Maybe in a user menu?

            Separate if at all possible - Add a 2nd Comport or Ethernet Port.

 

If there is a COM 2  and it is RS232/485  then this would normally be used as the Modbus Com Port and Com 1 is open for Programming and Remote Access

   Is Com 2 Setup for Ethernet ?  --   IP address  and PLC Name and the Program Name  can be gotten via Info Mode.

         Then Modbus Serial will use Com 1 , and you can get into the PLC via Ethernet

           You can go Online with the Unit and at least looks at the data  even if you do not have the program.

           You can try an  UPLOAD  from the PLC  - If the program is unlocked, you can recover the ladder.

                                                                                                   -- If the ladder is locked, then you are out of luck.

          ( DO NOT ATTEMPT a DOWNLOAD  as this will overwrite the program in the PLC !!!!!! )

V350, Port 2 Ethernet; I wa using RS232; I wanted to use port 1 for the modbus RTU, now I cant enter via RS232, 
  Using COM1 as a Modbus Master and for Programming is asking for trouble     Communications Clashing - In and Out...... Yes, It is just  the problem  that I have.

I dont have problem to lose the PLC program

Can I load a new program from the SD?

Hi;

Yes, the SD card can be used to download a new program into the PLC.

In VisiLogic,   Projects - Create the download file.

Format the SD card using the SD Card Utilities - this also adds Unitronics specific folders onto the card.

In the V350, use  Info Mode and SD  card Functions to install the new program.

If the PLC has an Ethernet Port, you can also download thru the Ethernet Port  ( IP and PLC Name are required)

If No 2nd com port, create a service screen and disable the Modbus Activity while working thru COM1, then enable Modbus Activity when done.

Hi,

I can add to what DanT say.

Use the same VisiLogic you used to download project to PLC last time.

This is important to have all system files compatible with used VisiLogic version.

Only OS may be updated from SD card.
