  1. Graphic Operational Controller

    Check with your Mitsubishi rep in India.  Those products are not sold in other regions.
  2. how to program motion controller A172SHCPUN

    You need to contact Mitsubishi to get the software.  I believe it communicates through the main CPU across the backplane, but been well over a decade since I've worked on old A-Series...

    FX memory card may have a write protect switch turned on.  Look under the cover and see if a memory module is present.
  4. installing AL-PCS/WIN

    Never seen it work on Windows 10.
  5. NTST software.
  6. NA HMI Listbox

    Used a listbox many times, but never tried loading the list anything other than manually.  My applications have not required me to get into the script code.
  7. Square D PLC Software

    Old DOS based software, long discontinued.  They did briefly release a Windows version. Don't know if they ever made it publicly available, so you should contact Schneider Electric to find out.  Can't share the software if it's not public domain... Don't have info on the cable anymore, haven't seen one since I replaced one in 2003.
  8. You need to read the manual for the drive and see how it wants to be controlled.  If it's a simple digital input, you control it with one of the PLC's digital outputs.  Never seen that servo so can't really provide more details than that.
  9. Depends on the version of the CPU firmware.  I don't recall when the change was made, but some earlier versions would clear the array.
  10. The OS on the HMI doesn't need to be changed, but it makes sense to match it to the project version.  All required files are in Studio, it's an automatic question each time you go online, so why not make them match?  And newer firmwares add new and improved features.  1.11 has a lot of new items... All units out of the box are still version 1.0.
  11. Analog I/O on EIC202

    You need to look at the I/O allocation of the EIC202 coupler and know what words of the input and output data contain the analog info.  It's sent as a INT.
  12. When you are looking at the NX assembly in Studio, click on the card and there is a button on the right to edit the card's properties.  That's where you make the changes.
  13. Keep in mind also that same dialog will also offer the option when you connect to DOWNGRADE the HMI to match the project.  It shouldn't be an issue, all the files are inside Sysmac Studio to do so.
  14. Sysmac Studio Improvement Request

    Been in Sysmac Studio for a couple versions now.
  15. iQ Works Q & A

    Rather than continue to pound on the old GX Developer improvements thread, I thought it best to create a new thread specific to GX Works2. Post any questions or feedback here.
  16. Q series basic motion control of 3 axes

    You didn't give us anything to go on.  Control it to do what?  Control it how? QD75MH is very easy to program.
  17. Mitsubishi HMI (F940GOT-LWD-E)

    Then you should contact KINCO for their software.  This isn't a Mitsubishi product I have ever heard of.
  18. NA screen acknowledge alarms on reset?

    Acknowledge is designed to make the user confirm they saw the error.  If you don't need that, then uncheck the acknowledge on the alarm.
  19. Synchronize time of Proface's HMI and PC

    Might get more answers in the HMI forum.  But in order for anyone to help, you have to tell us what PLC its connected to.  
  20. Connect for what?  Data collection?  Pass/fail results?  Measurement data?  Trigger? More information about your application can help people provide better answers. The FH can provide information over EtherNet.  I've seen it done with EtherCAT or EtherNet/IP.  Not sure about Siemens Ethernet protocols though...
  21. Connecting to NS8

    Is your CX-One completely up to date?  Did you do the automatic updates to get the latest version?  If it's older, the USB drivers may not be right for Windows 10. Version number of CX-Designer?
  22. Sysmac Studio Improvement Request

    Yeah, since about HMI firmware 1.05 or so.
  23. Accessing USB from VB on NA screen

    The drives have names, like SDCARD or USB.  That's in place of drive letters you would see on a PC.  Perhaps that will help.
  24. how to download new program (step 7)

    There's nothing on this question about HMI. 
  25. Ask the OEM to send you a copy of the program so you can erase the PLC and download it again.  That's about your only option at this point.  If they can't provide the password and they can't provide the original project, your more or less have to start over and have an integrator write a new program.  And hopefully in a more modern PLC.  There is no magic back door to let you bypass the intellectual property protection.
