thomas, I'd make one timer and use the accumulator bits as a flasher bit for your pilot lights. IDK if there is a real-time clock? It might have a milliseconds register that you can use. Depending on which HMI you are using, they often have an HMI tag for Flash slow, Flash fast (if your pilot light ...

sa, When introducing the field device, there is the complexity of the field wiring, power source, grounding, scaling and etc. I would check the IF16H with a process simulator. e.g. Fluke meter because it is battery operated, isolated, etc. Just removes a lot of variables. I have also used a small 1/8 ...

Michael, What is the specific module fault code? It is possible for the communications to be OK but the module or channel is faulted e.g. open circuit, short circuit, etc. How do you recover? If it was a communications fault, often it recovers automatically within 3 seconds of the clear path. If it ...

Rahul FactoryTalk View v12 and later has PowerShell scripting. You could use that to detect SQL is connected to the NAS Drive and also run the shell command to restore the lost connection to SQL. FYI.. FactoryTalk View v13 and later has integration with .NET Control Objects. All FactoryTalk View has ...

Matt, I'm sure you've seen the serial communications manual. It seems you are reading data file dd =0x00 which is decode to 4 while UltraWare indicates 8 lines per revolution. You could use a RS232 tap to monitor the UltraWare traffic. But I suspect it is the same as your LabVIEW and either UltraWare ...

Catalina, Generally we use NIC Teaming to achieve redundant network adapters on PCs and Servers. The OS is using a virtual NIC card with binding to the physical NIC cards. The virtual NIC card only has one IP Address, hence one entry in the HOST files. https://www.parallels.com/blogs/ras/nic-teaming/ ...

Conion To get a reliable and accurate count, do the counting in the input module as indicated below. Trying to coordinate the IO update with the logic scan is not going to provide better results than what you can do in the dedicated hardware. 5069-IB16 500Hz counter 5069-IB6F 30 kHz counter 5069-IB16F ...

Larson, The documentation 140-td005 shows the 140MT in a group motor installation with a Branch Circuit Protective Device (BCPD) for the "Group". Bulletin 140MT devices are UL Listed for Tap Conductor protection in group installations, which helps reduce conductor sizing. Conductors from the BCPD to ...

Ryan, d007-d009 has the fault history. Fault codes are listed on p67 in the manual It is possible something is telling the drive to stop.. e.g. PLC, local IO... thus no fault is indicated? You mention "the alarm is able to be cleared" . I'm guessing this is an alarm on the HMI screen? There could ...

Manzato, Is the client pointed at the network directory From the client you can "Specify FT Directory" and it will join the FT directory... that will add the PC name to the list. Can you ping EXMAG-L05 by it's host name? Do you have a DNS server or HOST Files to provide name resolution? -------- ...

McKenzie, A BT is pointed at Group/Slot location... e.g. Group 2, Slot 0 The first byte of input and output at that location is used by the BT and thus not available for discrete IO transfer. ------------------------------ Philip Hamilton ------------------------------

Goodall, Try 172.16.11.15 There is no need to add the ,1,0 at the end of the path to specify the controller as with the 1768-L4x, 1768-L4xS, 1769-L3xE and 1769-L2xE controllers. When the MSG originates from the CompactLogix, you need to specify which port to send out the MSG... A1=3, A2=4 5069-UM001 ...

Fuller, I'm not a motion guy so there could be a better and newer solution.... About 10 years ago, I consulted on a Servo torque application that had load cell to measure force via 1734 Point IO. We could set a torque limit on the servo and observe the force on the load cell. Although the torque (current) ...
