Hi Carry, You don't. A DLR network will be managed by 1783-ETAPs without IP addresses (see FuzzyLogic's answer). Add it to Studio 5000 is useful if you are thinking to get diagnostics in PanelView Plus or Scada. There is a Faceplate to diagnose the DLR network, that is the only case where the ...

Hi Carry, Three ETAP can be supervisors (at the least, one of them must be supervisor to avoid broadcast storm in the ring). You can set them by switches (in this case, no IP address needed, but not diagnostics in Logix controller). Or you can set the IP addresses, 3 different to avoid duplicated ...

Hi Krivanek, I reviewed the Modbus TCP AOI and it uses MSG instructions. I am not sure that Unicast connections in Class 1 should be involved in this case. The document about how to manage it, also explains a delay at switchover in Redundant controllers. See this comment: Page 15: Implementation ...

Hi EvanMars, Directly substitution might be with the Prosoft gateway AN-X4-AB-DHRIO. If it is out of your planning, you can replace the DH+ comms by DF1 serial comms, with a serial to USB cable, for example 9300-USBCBL-CP3. This note explains how to configure it (TechConnect required): QA29511 - ...

Hi Kevin, It is caused by slow response of SLC controller. To improve comms in SLC (against the scan time) you can reset the System bits: S:33/5 = 0 and S:33/6 = 0. They will do all communication tasks for Channel 0 between a couple of scans. Also you can add an SVC instruction for channel 0, at ...

Hi Shahzad, First Compact GuardLogix 5380 series B showed this problem, they cannot flash with revisions below V33. Workaround is to flash it to V33 or newer. Solution is to request to Distributor to replace by another unit manufactured after Aug-2023. Please, contact to your Distributor ...

Hi Morley, View Designer can use Add-On Graphics, and they can use User-Defined data type property, that all tags of same type can be substitute in the Add-On Graphic without renaming the tag. I tested the sample in technote: QA47251 - View Designer: Reusing Add-On Graphics that works similar ...

Hi Caskey, Yes, it is. MCM.CONFIG.Port1MasterCmd[x].Node is the slave node, in this case 22. The entire command configuration must be done. The Huracan device must have the table exposed to ModbusRTU. For example, It can be configured the Input Register table: 30001 to 3xxxx. Or Holding Register ...

Hi Splash, The tag that manages the path is the MSG_Tag.Path string. If you turn off the MSG instruction and change this string, you can trigger it again for different destination. If you don't turn off it, a technique with GSV and SSV instructions can be done (I prefer to send the messages time ...

Hi Filimone, There isn't. You can connect the nodes in the best order for your cabinets architecture. The requisite, if ENxTR redundant modules manage the remote IO racks, is to set the same IP address (entire Ethernet configuration) in both chassis modules. 1756-RM2 modules will automatically ...

Hi Nguyen, Sorry for delay. 1747-SDN is not compatible with 1747-AENTR. So, the DeviceNet network must be replaced by other compatible network with CompactLogix, or it might be replaced by a Logix DeviceNet scanner. In any case, the M0/M1 files won't work. You will need to map the DeviceNet network ...

Hi Borges, 1756-OBV8S & 1734-OBV2S can be wired as well as relay outputs, bipolar mode. But they are internally transistor technology. So, they only support 24VDC, no matter polarity (sourcing or sinking connection). 1734-OB8S has solid state outputs, sourcing only. There is other distributed ...

Hi Nguyen, This routine makes the same that SLC code. But ControlLogix uses easier techniques to get the same results. To get a fast response from the Input module slot 4 of remote ControlLogix rack, the easier action is to set a fast RPI in the 1756-EN2T (if Rack Optimization) or in 1756-IBxx ...

Hi Tazi, I would like to suggest to you the use of the samples to configure the comms between the Micro800 serial module and PowerFlex 4x family. See the note for wiring and basic config: QA11943 - Using a Micro830 controller to control a PowerFlex 4 class drive on Modbus RTU The samples available ...

Hi Nguyen, I start for the easiest: SWP swap bytes is also available in Studio 5000: SWPB. But it only applies to one basic tag INT or DINT. If the SLC controller was swapping Nx:x tag high to low byte, you can reproduce it in Studio 5000: use INT tags for source and destination and any order mode, ...

Hi Nguyen, It is the AOI tag. You only need to type a name, and with the right click, select New Tag. This tag must be unique, and it should not be used in other DCD_Inladder instruction. It is the instruction control tag. See the type:

Hi RDesrosiers, The user manual shows the flow chart of the instruction: So the only solution to get the Timeout fast is to modify the 2080-SERIALISOL --> Response Time. By note QA24409 - Timeout value for a MSG_MODBUS in a MicroLogix 800 controller I hope it help to you.
