I think the Red Lion G3 were faster, at about 7 seconds. The Kadets I have used were about 9 seconds it can grow if you have a lot going on in a startup program and the CR are around seconds.
The G3 paid for itself in a few weeks because they had to use the HMI to start up the machine. If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice. Join Date: Sep Try timing a Project transfer to the Panelviewthat it what takes a l GIT, Where you moving to? You leaving beautiful SC?

RsLogix 500 Training - Configure your IP Address for PC to PLC Ethernet Communication
Clear login credentials.Your trainer's default IP address is If you didn't know this default IP address or you have changed it then the easiest way to determine it is to look at an offline copy of your program or your controller that has an LCD display and it can be found by pressing the "ESC" button to the main menu, scrolling down to "Advance Set", pressing the "OK" button, scrolling down to the "ENET Cfg", then pressing the "OK" button.
There are two additional pieces of information that make up the basic IP configuration. The Subnet Mask and the Default Gateway. Put your Subnet Mask at For the IP address, make the first three octets the same, and the last one unique to the network. So we are going to choose Now is a good time to note an error we see a lot.
This is called a duplicate IP address and will not work. We are on the home stretch now. There is only one more major hurdle to overcome. With new PCs having multiple network adapters including wired, wireless, bluetooth, VPNs, etc, it can be tough to figuiuure out which adapter to change the network settings of.
Find the basic network information. This list your active networks. By plugging and unplugging your network cable from your PC that you are trying to connect to the PLC with, you will see either that network disappear or show a status of unplugged.
This tells you which network you need to change the IP configuration of. Click on the connection name and the network that needs configured which will bring up the Status dialog.
Click the Properties button. Highlight it and click the Properties button. Now it is time to see if our configuration is correct.

Rockwell Automation spokespeople describe two distinct control and automation product lines, Logix and Connected Components. Additional plug-in capabilities for the controllers will be available later this year.
Ling was on the development team for the Micro controller. He has relocated from Singapore, where the product line was developed and manufactured, to Rockwell Automation headquarters in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Control programming and configuration is done with the Connected Components Workbench software. The new software provides controller programming, device configuration and data sharing with the PanelView HMI editor. In addition, the software supports three standard IEC programming languages: ladder diagram, function block diagram and structured text. The Standard Edition is free for download but has no debugging capabilities.
Memory varies depending on controller model. The Micro supports 2K programming steps or instructions and 4K bytes of user data with the 12 point unit and 4K programming steps or instructions and 8K bytes of user data with 20 and 26 point units.
All program and user data can be interchangeable as long as the total memory is not exceeded. The easiest way to understand the options is to use the Micro Programmable Controllers Bulletin Selection Guide. The motion control interfaces for the Micro controllers are Modbus and hardwiring to Rockwell Kinetix 3 drives for indexing functions. The Micro product line has some specialty modules that can be used to extend its functionality.
The modules do not work with all the processors so the selection guide noted above should be consulted for appropriate application. New applications are made possible with Micro controllers with plug-in technology. Focus will be on new plug-ins available from Rockwell Automation and Encompass Partners. Notable plugins from partners include:. The Hardy EASY 8 module for the Mico is a single channel plug-in module that reads, conditions, and digitizes load cell sensor and strain gage signals commonly found in process weighing applications.
Rockwell Automation representatives are clear that the Micro product line is focused on standalone machine control and this is reflected in its limited communications capability. The Connected Components Workbench software provides an easy to use configuration for PanelView graphic terminals to work with Micro controllers. In keeping with being the controller for standalone machines, there is no interface defined for software HMIs. Is the Micro a MicroLogix replacement?
Rockwell Automation provided a Frequently Asked Questions document that answered this:. Customers who want Micro features such as motion planner, IEC programming, etc.Started by dakotap17 January. Posted 17 January. I need to set up a simple heartbeat or something to make sure communication is Okay. Currently I have been using the msg. DN and. I set up a timer and a counter for the heartbeat on the clx. Writing and reading from the Messages are being sent every 1 minute.
The above thread may help you out. I would use a compare on the value read. If the number does not change for 10 minutes timera communication error has occurred. Regards, Garry. Posted 17 January edited. We did something like this in the PLC's on the oil system I worked on. If the HMI didn't reset the heartbeat timer within 10 minutes we shut the station down. The bit would move the current timer value to a register so we could see elapsed time, then reset the timer before it tripped the done bit.
If it tripped the done bit then the station tripped on Comm Fail. Each bit transfer resets a timer. PS - the link in the post above this has some great ideas explained in more detail than I've gone to. Thank you guys! This should be simple enough. By the way Michael I have setup 13 remote sites and all working fantastic thanks to your help previously.
I just wanna add some protection Incase something goes down at a pump station. Posted 24 January. It is more efficient and clearer than doing writes. My approach is simple. If they remain different for more than the desired Fault Timeout then a fault bit is set in Master and COde Activated to act appropriately. You need to be a member in order to leave a comment.
