DX200 Ethernet/IP Editing positions in Play/Remote Mode

  • Hello all.

    I've got a few DX200's which I'm controlling with a PLC over Ethernet/IP.

    The one thing which is currently holding me up is that I'm only able to edit Positions (P Variables) in Teach mode. I can't figure out how to make changes in remote mode.

    What am I missing?

  • Hi,

    As per the manual, you're able to do explicit messages concurrently with implicit messages. I'm controlling I/O implicitly at the same time monitoring axis positions and editing/monitoring variables using explicit messaging. Reading of variables works perfectly fine regardless of mode however editing a variable seems to only be able to be done in Teach mode.

    As a workaround I'm currently editing an integer with Modbus and then writing to the Position with SETE but I'd like to actually be able to edit the position on the fly with Ethernet/IP explicit functions.

    I assume it's a security/permissions setting somewhere but I'm unable to find it.

    Any help would be appreciated.
