S7 interface plc input write error CPU : Function not available

JO SG vor 2 Wochen in Game4Automation Starter and Professional aktualisiert von Thomas vor 1 Woche 6

Helo. Im trying to connect s7-1200 with game4automation. I saw the tutorial video and the https://game4automation.com/documentation/current/s7tcpip.html.

I followed all the process but still not working with this signs keep cycling.

I successfully checked the connection and added sdf file as well.

S7 interface plc input write error CPU : Function not available

I don't know how to solve this problem. Thank you.

Hi, sorry for my late response. We needed first to support the open issues of our professional customers.

I checked your project but it seems that I don't have all data to be able to reproduce your problem. I would need your full S7 project. And you need to tell me which scene to open and what else to do to get the same problems as you do. Thanks.

Error opening game4automation project in a different PC

looi vor 3 Wochen in Game4Automation Starter and Professional aktualisiert von Thomas vor 2 Wochen 5

I've started a project with the game4automation asset. I have a robot connected with the roboDK interface. When I try to open the project with another PC, It appears this error:

It seems like some paths from the old PC are still remembered by the asset. I have changed the RoboDK Application path and the RoboDK file path, but the error stays. Reinstalling the asset just works, but it is uncomfortable to do it every time I switch to another PC.

Antwort
Thomas vor 2 Wochen

If you changed the RoboDK pathes I don't know why it not opens. The code is always just using this path. Is your path somehow uncommon with special characters or empty spaces?

You might need to set some breakpoints in RoboDKInterface.cs and check what is going wrong. If you don't find the issue we should do a Zoom Session and I will check on your computer.

Grip scripts teleports mu to a different location

Matteo vor 3 Wochen in Game4Automation Starter and Professional aktualisiert von Thomas vor 2 Wochen 1

Hi I'm having an issue with the grip script which I placed on a rotary arm on the automatic machine I'm designing, when the PLCOutputBool I use to pick the designated mu goes to true the MU that should be picked up and placed immediately teleports to a different location. My grip works just fine, but the mu will be moved on the location where it was teleported instead of attached to the gripper. I will include some pictures to better explain the issue.
In the first picture the green arrow points to the gripper and the red one to the mu.
In the second one, you can see how the mu (red arrow) is teleported to a different location immediately just as the signal linked to "Signal Pick" is true.

The pivots of the sensor linked to "part to grip", of the gripper and the pivot of the rotary arm correctly set. The Pivot of the game object representing all the automatic machine (highest in the hierarchy) is located also on the red arrow in the secon picture.

How do I fix this issue?

Thanks

Thomas vor 2 Wochen

Sorry for my late response.

Grip should work. Please check how we did it in our dem model.

You can upload  your model via https://game4automation.com/send and I will check what is missing in your project.

Interface to SIMIT via SHM unstable

David vor 2 Monaten in Game4Automation Starter and Professional aktualisiert von Thomas vor 1 Monat 3

Hello,

with my coupling between SIMIT and G4A the connection always breaks down.

I suppose it is due to a timeout at G4A. Because there is a high simulation load at SIMIT at the time of interruption. I can use the "Import Signals" button to reestablish the connection, but the connection does not persist.

Can I activate a cyclic reconnect if the connection is not established?

Thanks in advance

David

There will be a value in the next release which will allow to configure the "no responding" time which will set the interface to disconnected.

reading from plc not possible

Willem Van Der Gaag vor 3 Monaten in Game4Automation Starter and Professional aktualisiert von Thomas vor 1 Monat 7

I have added the a sensor from my PLC but as soon as i start running my program it writes a value. I would like to read the current value and not write anything. This is what my sensor looks like when it is added: Many thanks!

Antwort
Thomas vor 1 Monat

OK but usually PLC Inputs should only be written by Unity and not read.

You could manually create your table using excel (in the form TIA Portal is creating the tables) or you could manually create the IOs in Unity. Please delete the spaces in the names so it should for example be "I5.0" and not "I    5.0"). Maybe this is also an issue.

Compile Problems with demogame4automation

SCT FPG vor 3 Monaten in Game4Automation Starter and Professional aktualisiert von Thomas vor 1 Monat 4

Hello I recently purchased the game4automation asset to test the features that it offers but I´m having problem with the demo compilation.. 

I followed the guide but unfortunately due to the new versions of unity, some steps are different. 

Those are some of the errors that i get when I try to run the demo:

And for example when I configure the "build project settings" I cannot find the called "scripting runtime version" and maybe that's the reason.. I just can configure following:

Do you have some Idea what is going on?

It should work with some minor changes which you would need to do on your own. Officially, we only support latest LTS releases.

S7 TCP Interface DB access

Wombo vor 3 Monaten in Game4Automation Starter and Professional aktualisiert vor 2 Monaten 12

Is it possible to direct access variables which are stored in DBs with the Siemens TCP Interface? The problem there is, that in the TIA variable table only M,Q and I are allowed, but the actual style of programming a Siemens CPU is to store global data in DBs. Merker are not used anymore. I dont want to reorganize the variables of the project for the simulation.

Any suggestions ?

Student Access

kai.grundmann vor 7 Monaten in Game4Automation Starter and Professional aktualisiert von Thomas vor 7 Monaten 2

Dear Thomas


I am currently working as a student at the Corporate University of Baden-Württemberg on my bachelor thesis on machine simulation and automation.

G4A is helping me a lot with my thesis. I find it very intuitive and easy to use. Furthermore, your Youtube tutorials are very helpful in learning the basics of G4A.

I was wondering whether professional licenses will be available for students in the near future?

I am looking forward to your feedback.


With kind regards

Kai Grundmann

Antwort
Thomas vor 7 Monaten

Thanks a lot for the positive feedback. We are not planning to do that. The Starter version is meant for for free usage. In very rare cases we are developing things together with universities, companies or students in bachelor thesis and in this case we are suppling for free licenses based on special test contracts.

Best regards

Thomas

Augmented Reality with Siemens

Ivan vor 10 Monaten in Game4Automation Starter and Professional aktualisiert von Thomas vor 7 Monaten 2

Hi, I am interested in connecting a SIEMENS PLC to content in Augmented Reality with Unity in a Android mobile phone. How can I do it with Game4Automation?

Antwort
Thomas vor 7 Monaten

Hi,

best would be to do it with Game4Automation Professional and the included OPCUA interface.

With the OPCUA interface, you can get the data from the PLC and with the standard Unity UI and AR functions, you could display it on your android phone. Like in this example:

Best regards

Thomas
