  1. usb-sc09 Driver

    It should come with one... Unless it's an eBay Chinese one. Then good luck deciphering the Chinese instructions
  2. E900 Operating System Required

    If you have the old E designer (not e designer 7) (It comes with the E designer 7 CD) You can choose Firmware 4.nn for the project and it will download without complaint.    
  3. CMP instruction

    Or DCMP  
  4. Reinstall GXWorks3

    Nice answer Gambit. I didn't know that existed.
  5. The error number says there is. Probably the Chinese plc is not compatible with the Japanese extension.
  6. Connect and see what the error reports.
  7. Help Installing GX Developer on Windows 10

    Forced? Then whoever forced you needs telling that you can't run legacy software on an operating system that was built years after GX Dev (although I think it will) I think I got the most recent version of 'Melsoft environment' and GX installed ok - but I don't use Windows 10 for any plc software.    As a footnote and not much to do with this topic; I was heckled by some tech savvy machine operators the other day. I had to get in a Toshiba plc on their 30 year old machine. I booted up my old laptop with the Toshiba software on and the Windows XP logo came up. These know-alls were straight on me 'Windows XP???? You do know there is windows 7 and 10 now don't you' 'Oh look, his laptop has a floppy disk slot' 'Bet he's only just updated from windows 98' Great hilarity that this old geezer was still using a steam driven computer. I made out that I had no clue things has moved on and tried looking impressed and amazed. They were very happy they had passed on vital knowledge to me.   Machine mended - off I went   
  8. Need help with GX Developer

    You have posted a pic right over what you have entered Timers are coils and look like this. -------(T1 )K100 You then use done bits in your logic ----| T1 |---
  9. new in plc:s

    It's quite possible with that plc but you will need an extra add on unit. An analogue to digital converter.
  10. kHz signal on digital input

    The first few inputs can be used as high speed counter inputs. They are tied to specific high speed counters. Sampling of the frequency and a bit of scaling maths can give you the level
  11. Data register lost when power off

    Which plc?

    Study the instruction DECO  
  13. Up Down Counter (Mitsubishi FX1N)

    Define your question more accurately.
  14. 2 HMI's 1 plc.

    Oh exactly Inntelle. I went through the help files and did a check list....... yep done that....yep that's as it should be...why no connection. No where did it tell you to change the IP address by using a dip switch and rebooting. It allows you to in the program but not in reality Every step was an hours reading and changing small parts in the HMI. And i'll probably never have to do it again with the E1000's as they are now obsolete. 
  15. 2 HMI's 1 plc.

    I posted this topic 4 years ago and they shelved the idea of an extra HMI so I finished the project. They had used a E1101 touch screen. The operatives had complained a lot about having to walk across the site to use the dosing system in that time Recently they found another E1101 on ebay and asked me to install it as a mimic HMI  I ran an ethernet cable between the two, changing it to a crossover cable, put the copied program from hmi1 into HMI2 and thought we would be good. err no. What a faff with poor help files. Of course I eventually managed after reading and re-reading the help files. I got them to talk after realising that HMI2 should have its address changed by using a dip switch. But still there was no data coming through Then I had to remove the plc from hmi2 peripherals and then (eventually) realising I had to change the BDPT station for everything in the program on hmi2. I spent more time reading through unconnected help files than working.
