I am relatively new to Unilogic and completely new to CANBUS, and I have a project that requires 2 encoders a single turn and a multi turn encoder.
My struggle is with the software and how to generate the position values for the encoder onto the PLC, I have followed all the help guides etc and have uploaded the manufacturer EDS Files for the encoders, but I currently seem unable to get a reading onto the PLC HMI. And I cannot for the life of me figure out what I'm missing or have done wrong.
Can anyone help or have any tutorial videos for if I'm missing anything in the Ladder logic or in the CANopen set up.
Duh! I must have been too pre-occupied yesterday. I work with them often, but I actually didn't see the relationship, and the really strange thing is that I don't actually recall being taught that symbol at all. But I know the concept well. So either the 10 gazillion other things going on in the brain shifted it out of BEPROM, or I didn't know it at all to begin with. Odd.
as said I have a v700 with module v200_18_e4xb
I changed the status of the ports from I9 to I17 passing them to NPN, their common as per the manual I connected the positive 24vdc then I connected the cable in I9
I created a numeric variable window where I connected MI 9
after sending everything to the plc, when I turn it on, I don't see numbers that vary. according to you, a logic program must be made, where am I wrong
I9 is not automatically mapped to MI 9 as a counter. You need to create a counter in the ladder code for this to work.
Upload your program (.vlp file) so we can see what you've done so far.
