Can't Access FC6A PLC over local network

Make sure Mataintenance Communications is setup in the Configuration/Connection Settings/Server and when you go to "Online" program or monitor in the Communications Setup area you enter port 2101. I often leave gateway blank on PLC but recently (on a FT1A project) had to go to the Maintenance Communication settings and where there is a checkbox to "Allow Access by IP Address" I had to check it and put in the IP address of my LAN device (have never had to do this on an FC5, however). This is usually used to restrict access not enable it. But solved the comm problem in this case. Worth a try.

Are you trying to connect to the PLC on the LAN side of the network or through the cellular? And which PLC are you using?

UDF problems (on smartrelay software)

I am trying to create a UDF to simplify a project (which was initially started with version WindLGC 8.0) which is currently version 8.2.
I create the UDF and add correctly to project... But it stays Grey (and says "incompatible ?" in red text at the bottom of the screen).
HOWEVER I start a new project and add the UDF to it... It IS usable and works!!!

Why can I not use the UDF in my current project??? (Says incompatible).... But the UDF works fine in a new project.

Thanks!
Bill

HI

I have a word value in the form 9999 that represents a real world value of 99.99

How do I convert this word to a floating value to display its true Y axis value correctly on a line chart?

Hi

I am trying to set up a local network for an HMI and PLC using a 4G Router

The IP address for the HMI is 192.168.0.10
The IP address for the PLC is 192.168.0.11
The IP address for my laptop is 192.168.0.145

I initially downloaded the PLC program via USB, I've configured the IP address for the both PLC and the HMI and both devices are communicating, I can connect to the HMI from my laptop over the LAN using NV4

Try as I might I can't get WindLDR to connect to the PLC using 192.168.0.11 and port 2101, it just times out.

I'm using WindLDR 8.11.0 and NV4 1.11.1

Any ideas where I'm going wrong?

Is there a way to wire a line driver encoder to an fc6a? The wiring diagram shows only a regular 2 wire encoder. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

For those who may have this issue as well:

I spoke to Idec's Product Support and was informed that Idec is no longer updating WindCFG and will not make it available for any of their new PLCs. This is contrary to the fact that they sell this software with the product and advertise the two together on their website. Not an impressive start to using the gear.

I'm new to Idec gear and just purchased a FC6A controller. I can't seem to find it in WindCFG, either. Has this issue been resolved and I don't have updated software, or are we still waiting for this to happen?

How to make top quality graphics?

Hi there

What has happened to the symbol factory? There used to be some reasonable good interpretations of the HW range of switches and lamps. In this 'new', but not improved IMHO, they seem to have vanished and what is available is very second rate.

As I'm developing a project with the HG5G 15" display I'm using V1.11.1 of NV4, is this new version of the symbol factory supposed to be better?

I guess I can open my old version of NV4 on my laptop, export the HW graphics and import them back into the new symbol library?

Hmm, or am I missing something?

Regards

Help wiring with limit switches.

I am trying to wire an automatic door for a chicken coop. The wiring should be simple but I just can't figure it out. I haven't decided what type of input device to use to activate the relay (timer or light sensor) but what I need it to do is alternate between opening and closing. I am using a reversable 12 vdc motor and power supply and I know I will need a limit switch at each end of travel. What I am not sure of is whether to use momentary limit switches or latching. Or how to wire the whole thing. I know this shouldn't be as hard as I am making it but my brain is mush. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Well, back to the drawing board. No usb comm again. This time its not the comm ports. I tried switching cables, cable works fine on the HMI. Just keep getting this comm error message on the plc? I have tried all that it mentions.

That I do not know, sorry. I have had the same problem. I just turn it in symbol factory first. Maybe one day they will put a rotation handle on the pic. Would make life easier.

Once you place the button on the screen area, double click on it. A dialog box will pop up. It has choices for momentary, toggle, set, reset, etc.... pic attached. is this what you are needing to do?

Thank you. That was very helpful.

The CUD is pretty easy if you do want to play with it.

'R' is reset, pulse this and the counter will reset to the preset value like 200.
'P' is the count pulse. If you want to count seconds just use a normally open bit with M8121 (1-second clock)
'G' is the up/down selection. Off and it will count down, on and it counts up.
'Output' goes to any M or Q bit to signal the count is complete.

Rather than using the line draw feature, you use the lamp and make it the shape you need and it can change state based on a status bit. Just basic straight lines are easy. You can also use the symbol factory graphics for pipes, etc. in place of the basic shapes and change the color of these symbols based on the status of a bit. Water pipes are gray unless the water flow bit is set, then they turn blue, etc.

I can post an example program if it helps.
