Well, you probably already looked at this, but here is the excerpt from the manual: This gives several parameters to look through. Regards, RM

Hello Daniel, Question marks ("?") on objects suggest that one or more tags associated with that object can not be found. Broadly, the primary reasons for this would be: 1. The HMI is unable to communicate to the PLC 2. The address/name of the tag is incorrect Did you perform Communication Setup ...

You could try looking over this from the sample code library: Modbus 2.02 I think that will get you what you need. I did not look too deep into it though. Regards, RM

Hi Shane, To be clear, these are the 1794-IR8 modules? Which terminal bases are you using? What is your head unit? Devicenet? I guess since it does not follow the module, my next step might be to swap two of the terminal bases to make sure it follows the terminal base. Verify wiring matches on ...

I wouldn't think the display being "Replace" type would have an effect. The display with my Trend is "Replace" and seems to work okay now that I fixed the tags assigned in the datalog to match the ones in the Trend. The only other thing I noticed in my setup was the "Maximum data points" setting. If ...

Hi Alex, I happened to be playing with a Trend in FTVMEv12 on a PVP7, so similar to what you are doing. Is this a new setup for you or did it work previously? I was having a similar problem, but the page with the trend on it I had copied from a co-worker's project and I forgot to update the tags ...

Perfect, this is exactly what I was looking for. I knew there was a reason behind it, I sometimes forgot about those nuances that happen sort of behind the scenes, as it were. Thanks, fuzzy!

Alright Team, Processor: 5069-L320ERMS2 HMI: PVP7 (FTVME) I have a UDT I created so the machine user can manipulate the process sequence from the HMI. Fields include position, speed, and dwell time; and a toggle button to enable/disable the step (momentary push button, toggle handled in logic). ...

I have not found any reference suggesting firmware revision would cause an issue between drives. What kind of issue are you seeing? I did find this in technote QA61747 (TechConnect Required): If replacing a drive, make sure that the Firmware and Horsepower rating of the replacement drive is the ...

I can't find any breakout of how MCC part numbers are generated so I would say contact your local AB rep with the full existing part number and they should be able to help you figure out what it includes. Regards, RM

Kurt, If you add a dwell timer to each of your sequencer updates, same as you have for the first rung, then you will see the loop continue. You could make the preset 100ms and it would loop continuously because now there is a condition pausing the sequencer at each value for multiple scans. It might ...

Maybe they have updated the sample logic since you downloaded it. I just downloaded it (says it was uploaded in 2010) and the Kx_Watchdog_TImeout value seems to come from L204:8 for Axis1 and L204:27 for Axis2. Probably nothing, maybe you changed that yourself. So long as you are writing L204:2 to Instance ...

Ah, ok, I missed the keypad part. Yeah, looks like you can only have digital input as the start source when using start at powerup. Here's a technote: QA19935

See parameter #543 (Start at Powerup) in the PF 523. Unless I am missing something, I think this is what you are looking for. Regards, RM​​

The 1756-L7x PLCs do not have a built-in/embedded ethernet port, and so require a separate module in their local rack to communicate via Ethernet/IP. The 1756-ENBT was one such module. There are several other options, as you can see from the list. 1756-EWEB, 1756- EN2T, etc. You would need to know what ...

Well, this means that your PointIO adapter (1734-AENT) has an IP Address and that your PC recognizes what it is. So far you have not mentioned anything about a PLC for the AENT to communicate to. Now that the AENT has an address, you would have to add it to the I/O Config of a PLC that is on the same ...

I would change the RPI higher (200ms? more?) to see if it is a latency issue, but if you can't ping it at all when it stops communicating, then it sounds like it is truly dropping off the network, as you say, not just responding too slowly to the PLC. I would definitely keep "Unicast" checked, otherwise ...

Ah, yes, View SE would be different. Unfortunately I have very little experience in SE.

Hi Chris, Welcome! In the project tree of FTView Studio you will find "Global Connections". Inside of there you will find a tab "Display". You can assign tags from the PLC to monitor and remotely change the current display number (among other things). To know what number display it is you ...

Hi Dennis, More information about your network would be useful here. Is this a new installation or existing? When it stops communicating to the network, are you able to ping it? Is it just that it drops the connection to the PLC? (assuming there is a PLC) Is it possible there is a duplicate IP ...
