  1. Maybe best solution is to use Ehternet add-on card V200-18-ET2 and URB IO Please see new Visilogic 91 version. https://www.unitronicsplc.com/Download/SoftwareVersions/Visilogic/VisiLogic_9.8.91_Version_changes.pdf About URB https://www.pl-systems.fr/wa_files/unistream_remote_i_o_user_manual.pdf
  2. Maybe I'm wrong and this problem is solved. But after reading a help about modems built into Unitronics controllers, I found two points that probably explain the behavior of the Jazz in the case. This is just a guess - but it is likely that it has a right to exist. From the help file: From weight file:
  3. With ET2 in info mode appear 5 display (no Ethernet). With ET1 - display menu 6 show settings for Ethernet.
  4. I have new V230 on table, both V200-19-ET2 and V200-19-ET1 present also. Test result - no card in info Mode with V200-19-ET2. And card present with V200-19-ET1 See pic - maybe ET2 is not compatible with Vision230.
  5. First you must post hardware present with V1210. Yes i think you can connect PLC via input output. But before you must write on paper all needed i/0 signals and check is it 24vdc used for all on AB. Please remember that you can read all AB outputs with V1210 inputs without problem. But you cannot send signal form V1210 outputs to AB inputs directly. You must use some DIODE or RELAY logic for correct signal processing. For example if some input on AB is ENABLE (like "1" = 24VDC) - you cannot send to it "0"=0VDC without some add cirquit. Best solution - use relay w
  6. Surprisingly, people of about the same age in different parts of the world show the same habits and behavior. The same was demonstrated by my grandmother when she came to us after overcoming more than 2 km. However, she always thought of the reason why she came. One of these reasons is special to me. She said: I came to you because you will take me home by car. 🚗
  7. My grandfather sometimes couldn't find the tool and asked my grandmother about it. She replied: You need to write down on a piece of paper where you put the tool! Grandpa's answer: I wrote this, but I also can't find this piece of paper! This is probably the cause of this phenomenon 🤣
  8. Please see correct MODBUS addresing for G120 https://cache.industry.siemens.com/dl/files/159/99685159/att_83708/v1/G120_Field_busses_FH17_0414_eng_en-US.pdf You use 111 address for reading, maybe it is wrong. Please see on p.101 modbus telegram format and use correct 110 as equal to address 40111 (for 40110 used 006D hex = 109 dec in telegram example)
  9. Tested solution SAMBA + mTV-100 device. Installed on production line as large process monitor. Connection via modbus. https://dl.weintek.com/public/mTV/eng/Datasheet/mTV_100_Datasheet_ENG.pdf
  10. Maybe this document is useful https://cache.industry.siemens.com/dl/files/623/109764623/att_978241/v1/109764623_G120C_Modbus-communication_DOC_V10_en.pdf Please see STW1-control and ZSW1-status address. 40100- control byte 40101-setpoint. Also try to swap RS485 wires. P/S Maybe you try to setup V350 PORT 1 as Modbus and at the same time - try to monitor communication via USB port connected to SAME PORT 1. You need to use Ehternet card for connect to Visilogic or install add PORT2 RS485 com card as MODBUS com2 for use USB cable as connection t
  11. I used SAMBA for retrofit hydraulic machine control. One day on this mobile machine SAMBA screen is damaged. Even with the damaged screen it continued to control the operation of all systems. I was asked to change settings and with Unitronics software I was able to do it without any problems. Finnaly i setup remote settings via software for local staff. I wanted to try to "propose" to apply the already known Unitronics Virtual HMI technology to our most affordable Samba PLCs. By removing the touchscreen and screen from Samba (and integrating WiFi into it), Unitronics cou
  12. I still use 9.8.65 version of Visilogic - do not registering needed, works perfect with XP. As for me stable and useful for all application where not needed UMI VFD and Servo. Yes i use latest version also - but it is installed on Win10.
  13. ...... And everything I talk about magically appears in advertising. .......And more and more often it hunts for me in my smartphone ... ... However, the main advantage is that we can think in whispers and say only what we want ... Zuckerberg must still work on this ... :)
  14. You can find V570 Modbus loopback test.vlp at Visilogic help/Example/Communication/Modbus. Two port using for both - Master and Slave in one PLC
  15. Hi, i do no know about JZ20 non-volatile - it is no info in tech spec. But i found hidden memory and use it in my project
  16. The best way is to use http://support.elmark.com.pl/unitronics/materialy/manual/u90-software.pdf it is HMI variable topic and some other U90 ladder command.
  17. Hi, you can select non constant min max in bargraf. But you must check in program is it this limit correct . For example - is it min < max.
  18. For driving motor maybe is useful info in this topic: for current sensor maybe must be used 24vdc powered 0...10V or 0..20mA output isolated Hall effect DC current sensor. http://www.current-sensors.de/CurrentSensor-DC.htm ADC input in samba is not isolated. I do not recommend to use direct ADC to motor shunt connection due to noise generated by DC motor. You can try to run control loop but it is not possible to predict motor behavior in your system setup.
  19. You want to replace OPLC (operator panel HMI with integrated PLC) to rockwell Panel view 5310 HMI ?!? Do you have original project from Vision V1040? If not - you must start with new project on Rockwell Panel view 5310 and create all HMI display from the start. If yes: It is possible to export screens to BMP (some numbers and grafics you can't export). You can export Operand with value to the *.csv. You can also print to paper or pdf all project entry with detailed HMI operand mapping. But what with the logic? You must to create your
  20. I use in torque mode this driver configured without taho (encoder do not needed) https://www.motiontech.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/MT-Copley-Brush-Servo-Motor-Drive-241115.pdf The main problem is that your SM43-J-T20 do not provide analog output for control something like this. Only PWM output present on SM43-J-T20. But DC motor driver use analog setpoint. CANopen DC drive also present but you must install CANopen card and run CAN network. Maybe the best solution is to use 50Watt Unitronics SERVO motor with Unitronics servo drive, but you must ask suppo
  21. Is it possible to temporary sw off (or power of) VFD? If the problem gone - VFD EMF noise stop comms. You must check - is it motor GROUND wire and SHIELD of motor cable (if present) connected to VFD PE AND VFD PE connected to the machine or cabinet GND. Also please read pdf documents posted in my link
  22. Hi, This sound like internal DC/DC. Maybe some broken or not fixed (not glued) ferrite act as sound speaker driven by internal or external power supply current modulated by PLC program cycle. For recognize it is internal or external modulated current please use another power supply.
  23. Hi, if joystick used for control motion application - you need: 1) setup DC/DC 24VDC to 10VDC or use linear L7810 (or other IC) based 10V refrence. 2) use GND to Rdown+Rpot+Rup to10V ref serial connection. Rdown and Rup 0.25w resistors. For example 0.5k + 5k axis + 0.5k = 6k resistanse for each axis. 3) connect all axis joystick output to 3 analog input of PLC. 4) program code for test ADC readout for DOWN, ZERO, UP position of all axis. DOWN is abow 0V and UP is below 10V for safety. 5) set for all axis error condition if ADC is not in DOWN to UP readout ra
