SteveH Posted April 30, 2013 Report Share Posted April 30, 2013 Hi, Just bought a (used) Vision230 which did not come with any accessories. I've managed to set the IP address from the front panel, and it is on my network, but when I try to connect with Visilogic over the network it tells me I have the incorrect PLC Name. The diagnostics page on the HMI doesn't show a PLC name (just the PLC Code Version). It clearly has a program in it, but I believe it's a demo (references Gradient Coil; Cryogen Comp, Facility) as the values are all showing up as good with no I/O - I wondered if this was a standard demo or example, but can't find it in the Visilogic examples (hoping I could find the PLCname this way) Is there anyway to reset or find out the PLCName either from the physical device, or over the IP connection? Worst case I see that I should be able to access the unit over COM1; I don't have a serial cable; on ebay I see a few of the adapters MJ10-22-CS25; I'll get one if I have to but was trying to work out whether the RJ11 cable was straight through (I'd prefer to get an RS232-CB1, which includes the cable). Does anyone know the quickest place to get one at reasonable cost (US) - as I think I'm only using it once! ($20 shipping for a $3 connector isn't that reasonable...) Thanks in advance! Edit 30-Apr-13: I have the password, and have been able to access the information pages from the front panel. Unfortunately the value in SDW9 doesn't appear to be the current PLC Name, and I can't find a "Version" page that shows the PLCName. Is it possible to do a complete reset of the unit to factory settings (then use the value in SDW9 to access the unit over Ethernet?)
