  1. GX works 2 - GX Developer

    Thanks Gambit. I don't know what I'll find then - but I will install GX2 anyway :( If it's protected, it will be a start from scratch program then.   I've used GXW2 on plc's GXDEV didn't cover but I just didn't get along with it. I know if I spend time learning it, I will but I know GXDEV inside out and if I can use that, I will. :)
  2. GX works 2 - GX Developer

    Just a quicky I have to go to an abandoned job tomorrow. By abandoned, I mean the suppliers of a new control system delivered the finished panel 6 months ago and for whatever reason have never come back I have been asked to complete it. They have sent me photos and not a wire is connected to the panel and the PLC is an FX 3u I had a thought, what if it was programmed with GX works 2. At the moment, I only have GX Developer on my main laptop (I have GX Works 2)  Will a program in the PLC programmed in GXW2 be able to be uploaded with GX DEV. I don't have a spare plc to test but want to avoid installing it tonight if possible.   Has anyone tried this?          
  3. Fx3u io slow response to activate valve

    I would be looking at the valves and possibly air pressure if that is what is going through them.
  4. GS2107-WTBD HMI Problem

    I think you have answered your own question. These screens do not like humid or corrosive atmospheres Especially if the panel door is left open for long periods.   Crud may have built up around the pins of the chips and be shorting them It wouldn't harm to open it up and give it a clean.   Look at the screws holding the hmi in place - they are corroded.
  5. Fork terminals for Mitsu PLS's

    I can't imagine this is a big problem. Did a service engineer just once have to remove a wire to access another wire and then complained? I would say it was a rare event.   I use bootlace  ferrules and can easily get to the back terminals with a thin screwdriver I just never need to.    
  6. retentive counter on gx developer

    Thanks Gambit, I didn't have the manual to hand - but I knew C198 and C199 would be retentive (and 16 BIt)
  7. retentive counter on gx developer

    There are only 200 counters available with that model (C0 - C199) I don't know where the retentive numbers start but it's a fair bet that C198 and C199 will be
  8. retentive counter on gx developer

    Which PLC?
  9. usb-sc09 Driver

    It should come with one... Unless it's an eBay Chinese one. Then good luck deciphering the Chinese instructions
  10. 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.    
  11. CMP instruction

    Or DCMP  
  12. Reinstall GXWorks3

    Nice answer Gambit. I didn't know that existed.
  13. The error number says there is. Probably the Chinese plc is not compatible with the Japanese extension.
  14. Connect and see what the error reports.
  15. 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
