  1. You can check this system bits if you have Ethernet connection possible. If USB port is found - then it is powered from PC. If cable communication pin is connected SI 113 = 1 And if in V350 program is used com init block and this option is selected you maybe can't send break signal from USB port for start communication
  2. Than you have some option without data table: 1) use Vision controller with SD card and save log file to SD card. 2) use external controller with communication option to store data via Samba digital I/O, com or Eternet port. Something like this http://download.inveo.com.pl/manual/nano_i/user_manual_en.pdf 3) use networking to send information on remote storage. 4) use CCTV camera with remote datalogging for fix all user action :) But the best solution is to examine Samba installation for back EMF, EMI and grounding issue. I install several Samba a
  3. For position contol with high speed pneumatic actuator you must use Axis controller provided by actuator manufacturer. It was expensive solution with high speed proportional valve and controller with analog or digital setpoint. For example https://www.festo.com/net/SupportPortal/Files/379484/CPX-CMAX-SYS_2015-05a_559751g1.pdf You can set position setpoint to controller and read it from sensor (or from controller). Yes you can use interrupt routine and setup some ladder code but for precise position control via pneumatic actuator High speed PID servo loop needed.
  4. Yes, it is tested solution. Joe Tauser post this solution in forum topic. I use it for select powder coating gun position when different item is moving on a conveyor and mesuring station is before powder guns. I also manage bit vector copy for ON-OFF gun when no item is placed on conveyor. On this screen you can see illustration of automatic program selection via bit vector copy. Green LED - conveyor sensor, Blue - item sensor.
  5. As i see Patrick need to disable Initial and Reset from INFO mode menu (password protected). This command clear all operand but not clear data table. And it is possible to restore value saved in Data table. But user can remove battery..
  6. You can prepare two stage counter... ML or MI that is initialased by data table value at power on by SB2 . Count by increment it. Then save the result to data table via negative transition of SB2 at power off.
  7. The OPSHACOM rule explained as: Nice big new black Italian leather jacket OP (OPinion) — lovely, excellent SH (SHape) — big, round A (Age) — young, ancient C (Colour) — yellow, blue O (Origin) — British, Chinese M (Material) — steel, liquid
  8. One rare device in my workshop. Still in use for punch tape read-in.... :) :) :) and upload to.... FDD!!!
  9. Sorry, but it is listed before any unitronics link. That is happend with many unitronics pdf search. By the way in IO&COM for Vision section of Unitroinics Technical Library do not present any info about new URB IO option supported by new Visilogic 9.8.91. It is only in Visilogic Version changes info and after some new update this info is "lost" in the bottom of this pdf. Maybe link to new IO futures mus be placed I/O & COM for Vision™ & M91™.
  10. Yes, i still use it and it help to make some $$$. My favorite - German version MS DOS 5.0 - 1990 year. - so many machine installation with this version. I have "black box" with FDD, FFD emulator, USB-FDD, some ISA cards and my oldest PC -486 inside - to make some homework with it. This is my oldest disk. But i do not have FDD for this super large disk. If someone know where is possible to find - i ready to pay some $. It came with old CNC.
  11. In SM35 and SM43 for battery replace user need to remove IO card. So, battery cannot be pelaced with powered PLC. If project is present - you can Download All & Burn for not lost project in PLC and upload operand to file for not lost memory value. You can easly download it after battery replace.
  12. 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
  13. 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:
  14. With ET2 in info mode appear 5 display (no Ethernet). With ET1 - display menu 6 show settings for Ethernet.
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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. 🚗
  18. 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 🤣
  19. 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)
  20. 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
  21. 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
