  • Q. How
    to remotely control and monitor Xpanel?

     

     

    A. The VNC feature makes it possible to remotely control and
    monitor Xpanel using an Ethernet Network. If a Public IP is assigned to Xpanel,
    the User can monitor and control Xpanel using a Smart Phone or PC via Wi-Fi, 3G
    and LTE.

     

     

     

     

    1. VNC
    Network Configuration

     

    The
    VNC feature requires connection to an
    Ethernet Network. VNC allows only one
    device
    to have a remote connection to Xpanel at a time. This means that
    only one PC or Smart Phone can access Xpanel (
    1:1). If more than one
    Smart Phone or PC is connected to Xpanel at the same time, only one of them
    will be able to access Xpanel.

     

     

    1) Run
    VNC Server

     

    Xpanel's
    VNC Server must be running in order to access Xpanel. There are two
    methods
    of running VNC server.

     

     

    A. Run
    VNC Server on XpanelDesigner

     

       Click
    [Online] -> [Setup Link]

     

     

     

    Select
    [Ethernet], and click on [Select Xpanel]. Select the Xpanel IP address for
    connecting.

     

     

     

     

    Click
    [Online] -> [Run Remote Control Server].

     

     

     

     

     

    B. Run
    the VNC Server on Xpanel

     

        Run
    Xpanel Config

     

     

     

       The
    Xpanel Config window appears when you touch three corners of the screen in the
    sequence shown above.

     

     

     

     

    Click
    on the [Exit] button to bring up the Xpanel Desktop.

     

    Run
    Ethernet Loader Config
    .

     

     

     

    Click
    on the [Config] button in the Ethernet Loader Configuration dialog box.

     

     

     

    Select
    [Run VNC Server] to run the VNC server.

     

    If [VNC activates as
    Ethernet Loader starts] is selected, the VNC Server runs automatically when
    Xpanel is turned on.
     

     

     

     

    2) Run
    VNC Viewer

     

    Click
    [Online] -> [Run Remote Control Viewer]

     

     

     

     

    Enter
    the Xpanel IP address that the VNC Server is using.

     

    Once connection is
    established, Xpanel can be controlled and monitored from a PC.

  • Q. How to use CIMON PLC Device Memory? 

     

     

     A. CIMON PLC uses 17 differently named devices.  

         Each device has its own symbol and is denoted by a capital character.   

      

           

      

    X Device (Bit / Input) 

      

    – X device is an input contact that receives a signal from the input module. 

    – It accepts the signal from the input device such as a push button switch or limit switch. 

    – Since the input status of X device is stored inside the PLC, a user can use A and B contacts.  

    – If used as a word type, X device can be used according to the bit device’s word usage. 

    – It is a read-only device that a user cannot enter a value. 

    – X Device Allocation for PLC modules (Input and special modules) other than CPU: 

     

    1.          PLC card occupies 16 points (1 Word). 

    2.          Input card with 16 points or less: occupies 16 points (1 Word). 

    3.          Input card with 32 points: occupies 32 points (2 Word). 

    4.          Special cards other than input cards occupy 16 points (1 Word).  

     

    Example) 

     

     

    Turning on X00 device will output Y20.    

     

     

     

      Y Device (Bit / Output) 

     

    – Y device is an output contact that delivers the operation result to output devices such as solenoid valves, motors and lamps. 

    – If used as a word type, Y device can be used according to the bit device’s word usage.  

    – Y device can only use and output Contact A. 

    – Y Device Allocation for PLC modules (Output and special modules) other than CPU: 

     

    1.         PLC card occupies 16 points (1 Word). 

    2.         Output card with 16 points or less: occupies 16 points (1 Word). 

    3.         Output card with 32 points: occupies 32 points (2 Word). 

    4.         Special cards other than output cards occupy 16 points (1 Word).

     

    Example)

     

     

    Turning on X00 device will output Y20.

     

     

     

     

    M Device (Bit / Internal Auxiliary Relay) 

     

    – M device is an internal input and output digital device that cannot output the operation result to external devices. But the output in connection with I/O contacts can be made possible. 

    – It can be used in applications such as intermediate data storage, virtual I/O and word data storage. 

    – M device can use Contact A and B.

      

    Example)

     

     

      

    Turning on X00 device will turn on M20. SET instruction keeps M20 ON even if X00 turns OFF.

     

     

     

      

    L Device (Bit / Link Relay) 

     

     L device can be used as a special contact for computer link and data link modules. 

    – If not used as a link, L device can be used as same as M device. 

    – If used as a word type, L device can be used according to the bit device’s word usage.

     

    Example)

     

         

    Turning on L00 device will send Frame No. 0 of the
    Program ID No. 1 and saves the sending result in M100 device.

  • Q. How to wire Redundancy Power Monitoring Module CM1-RPW? 


     


     


    A. Refer to the wiring instructions below. 


       


    [Redundancy Configuration] 



     


    The Redundancy Power Monitoring Module (CM1-RPW) is the first module mounted on the front end of the above image.  


    Using the contacts “A_OK, B_OK, A_NG, B_NG” on the CM1-RPW module allows you to check the power failure of the power module. 


      


     


      


      


    [Wiring for CM1-RPW] 


     


     


     


    Four Contacts of the Status Output (A_OK, B_OK, A_NG, B_NG) are wired to the DC Input Module (XD16A).  


    These wired contacts on the DC Input Module monitor the status of each power module. 


      


    Because A IN, B IN of the Service Power Coupler receives the 24V output from each power module (SPR#1 and SPR#2),  


    the connecting part between 24V OUT and 24V IN is supported by redundancy even if one power module fails. 


      


      


    The reason for the same 24V wiring between 24V IN and COM of the Input module is to receive the output signals from  


    the four contacts of the Status Output.     

  • Q. How to clear CICON installation error on Windows 8 OS? 


     


     


    A. Install “Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86) first and then reinstall CICON.  


       


    When you install CICON without “Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86)” on your Windows 8 OS, you will get this installation error message as shown below.  


       


      


       


    If not properly installed, you will also get this error message when you activate “CICON.EXE.”   


        


        


        


        


        


    The reason for these error messages is that for operating systems such as Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7, the Microsoft Visual C++ package is automatically installed when trying to install CICON. However, for Windows 8, there are a few occasions when this package is NOT automatically installed. In this case, you should download the package directly from Microsoft.    


         


         


       

              

    After the download, begin the installation process as shown below.   


       


       


       


       


       


       


       


       


       


       


    After the installation of “Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86),” reinstall the CICON software.

  • Q. How to communicate with SCADA via SIEMENS S7 Series PLC Ethernet Connection? 


     


     


    A. When establishing communication blocks from SCADA, you have to make sure that the number of word


    communication blocks for the DB unit must be the same as that of SIEMENS PLC DB unit in order to properly


    communicate. 


     


     


     


    *CIMON SCADA and SIEMENS S7 communication DO NOT support PROFIBUS and PROFINET.


       Instead, Siemens S7 Ethernet Loader protocol is used.


      


     


    [SIEMENS] 


     



     


     


     


    Notice that END_STRUCT ends at 100. 


     


    For SIEMENS, the communication unit is in Bytes.  


     


    For CIMON SCADA, the communication unit is in Word. 


     


    Therefore, when you set up the communication block from SCADA, notice that 2 BYTE makes 1 WORD. 


     


    In this case, 100 BYTE is 50 WORD.


     


     


    [CIMON SCADA] 


       


     


     


     


    Register the communication block as DB address and 50 Word. 


     


    If larger number of Word is registered, the communication will not be connected.  


     


    If less number of Word is registered, unregistered tags will be displayed as ???? on the CimonX program. 


     


    In other words, DBW should be registered as Double Word for SIEMENS. 


     


    whereas DBW should be registered as 1 Word for Com. Block in CIMON SCADA. 


     


    For example) When setting up 0 ~ 50 DBW 


     


    SIEMENS: 0 ~ 100 


     


    CIMON SCADA: 0 ~ 50
