  1. Programming Port

    Hi Moggie,   Is there no transparent mode available in the HMI panel? Transparent mode allows you to programm trough the port of your HMI directly to the PLC. What is the type PLC and the brandname and model of the HMI that you are using? Succes. Best regards, Theo V.
  2. Project Transfer Failed - E-Designer 7.2

    Hi Richuk, As an IT man you could think of a 'local Admin' construction in the network. Add your maintanance personell in a group that can be administrator on dedicated production machines but not on the network it self. So if they login at the office network they are just standard users and if they need to install drivers etc. at this production machine they will have a login screen pop-up where they need to login extra with their network login name and pasword on a this local machine. This is how it works at our company on production machines. I don't know how to set this up (external IT party made this for us) but as you are an IT man it should be a piece of cake with these standard Microsoft of Windows settings i hope. Succes, Theo V.   p.s. you can set the download driver checkbox at 'Never' to make sure the up and download is not messing up the existing drivers.
  3. Hi Tiria,   Keep also in mind that if the functions of the simple FX1N are enough to let your project run, don't overshoot with a FX5 unit. It will save you a headache or two. I would go for the FX3GE, it has an on-board Ethernet connection besides of a USB. (there is still USB on-board) Ethernet is very handy to use as a fast programming port and has a built-in webserver function for simple monitor funtions trough internet explorer with in the same LAN. (not to be misstaken as a remote acces trough the internet) Good luck in the field.   Best regards, Theo V.
  4. E200 Salvage

     Hi Whyme, Attached the E200v604.bin file. It is a newer file however, this one should do the trick I think. Maybe you can stick to plan A now... Best regards, Theo V. E200v604.bin
  5. Standardize PLC code for new machines

    , software like GT designer/GXWorks2 Hi WattUp,   We do work with a 'preferred component list' that is leading in the purchase proces of new machinery that is built for our company. It discribes brands of components for controlpanels, pneumatics, software like GT-Designer/GX-Works2 etc. and an approved alternative choiche as well however if an alternative is selected the supplier needs to get approval before using the alternative component. It included that the supplier needs to provide drawings, PLC/HMI software when a project is finished. At each purchase. Sometimes if you buy machinery out of the standard catalogue you don't have much choiche. The supplier is most of the time not willing without extra costs to change the controlpanel. We decide based on who will maintain the machine if this non-standard suits for us. If a machine is maintained by an external company and their engineers are used to use Siemens or Hitachi PLC we still approve the purchase. I hope this gives you some directions to think about for writing your future terms of purchase.   Best Regards, Theo V.
  6. Medoc Keystrokes

    Hi PLC man, If I remember right: Wasn't it [F8] instead of [8] to get to the special function section? Best regards, Theo V.
  7. IQ Works Software

    microiuhvietduc, I suggest you contact your local Mitsubishi distributor for a licence key since this is not freeware.   Best regards, Theo V.
  8. FX3U Series DOUBT

    Hello KCRP, If you exchange your output Y040 for a retentive Marker (auxilery relay) you can use this marker in the next row to activate the output Y040. (see simple example below) For example, in the FX1 and FX2 series the retentive auxilery relay range starts from M384 and higher to keep the state after power fail. To have a complete overview of the range check the manual from you FX3u PLC. I've attached a part of te manual so you can see the M range, Timer range and counter range that is retentive and saves the value in the EEPROM of the PLC. Keep in mind that motors can start automatically without any warning if Y040 starts a motor. It can be a very dangerous situation!! I use this construction very often and always put a timer that acivates a sounder for 5 seconds to warn the operator that the machine will start up after the timer has expired and they can take their hands out of the machine in time or press the emergency stop before the output of the motor is activated. SIMPLE EXAMPLE: |--| |----(M384)   X0 (your start condtions for Y040) |--| |--(Y040) M384 (retentive M) You can also use a SET M384/RST M384 Best regards, Theo V.  
  9. FX3G 60MR Baud Rate setting

    Hello Amogh,   First of all, why do you want to speed up? 9600BAUD is normally fast enough to feed the data to your Scada unless you have a lot of data to transfer from the PLC. If you want to increase the speed I suggest you use an Ethernet connection instead. As far as I know serial connection is limited to 9600Baud for FX PLC's. (Add a ENET-ADP adapter and an Ethernet module to the FX3G base module).   Best regards, Theo V.
  10. FX3GE - Analog configuration

    Hi David,   See the attached picture with an example to set CH1 to 0-10Volt. Did you check the manual in the tutorial section? See reply from february 22th 2016 above for the details and also I can recommend you to check out the workshop pdf file. Aldough it is in Dutch the pictures taken from GX-Works2 are in English. Succes!   Best regards, Theo V.
  11. E300 hmi relocation

    Hi Russ333, You can extend a RS422 line up to 1200 meters so the 30m should not be a problem. Best regards, Theo V.
  12. Set Reset with singal input

    Hello Kumarsaurab92, As Andrei says in FX it is the ALT instruction to alternate on and off with the same input. You can use a rising edge puls PLS and a falling puls PLF to trigger the ALT instruction to make sure it is only triggert one time.   Best regards, Theo V.
  13. how can I Connect FX5U by direct RJ45 ?

    Hello Mazen_abs,   At least you need the GX-Works or IQ Works software to download. I'm not sure if the FX5U has a build in webserver. In the FX3 series there is. Just type in the IP number of the FX5U in your internet explorer tot test. To connect make sure your laptopp/PC networkcard is in the same IP range and subnetmask as the FX5U. Modern laptops from Dell and HP can handle straight and cross RJ45 cables. If you are not sure just put a simple ethernetswitch in between the computer and the PLC. Than you have straight cable connections only.   Best regards, Theo V.
  14. how to connect fx3ge with inverter e700

    Ron S, And remember... Google is your friend to find manuals too! Regards, Theo V.
  15. i need connection cable diagram

    Hello Mazen_abs, See the link to the e700 manual. Chapter 4 is about the control trough a FL communication cable. It seems that this is a RJ45 plug. There is no wire diagram that tells specific the serial RS485 connection of the FL communication. I have only little experience with the Mitsubishi frequency inverters so this is all I can do for you in this. Best regards, Theo V.
