    Program to convert Mitsubishi / Beijer E1000 projects to Beijer Exter projects (and back again if required). This can actually be done by modifying the main project text file and then re-naming it but as the company I work for has nearly a thousand E1000 series on site I thought I would write a small app to do it. This is not a demo - just didn't know where else to put it!

  3. Mapping one PLC into another.

    I agree - absolutly the quickest and easiest way to do this. Simple to set up and bulletproof.  
  4.   from http://www.chipkin.com/hubs-vs-switches-using-wireshark-to-sniff-network-packets/ A switch will never forward 'other' traffic (traffic that is not directed to your ethernet mac address + broadcast) to your port unless you tell it to do so. So, if you did not configure a mirror port on the switch, you will only see this kind of traffic. your own traffic traffic to multicast and/or broadcast addresses Please read the following Wiki article: http://wiki.wireshark.org/CaptureSetup/Ethernet   Basically you need an old hub not a switch (or a programmed managed switch) - personally I bought an old Netgear DS104 hub to use with wireshark which works great.
  5. Remap I/O addressing

    Personally I would do this but leave all inputs as flags within the program and then simply at the beginning of the program map the physical inputs to the ones declared as flags. I'ts then easier to simulate inputs for testing etc. Same if you need to change your IO around. The program becomes independent of it's physical I/O.  
  6. Indirect Indexing

    I personally find structured text is much easier (and clearer) to use when dealing with arrays/indexes With “Dollies” declared as a zero based array of 1000 int’s starting at ZR60000  [0..999] and “CarrierID” declared as an Int and D990 has a value 888   When “CarrierID” has a value of 0 then the statement... Dollies[CarrierID] := D990 would put the value of 888 into ZR60000   When “CarrierID” has a value of 123 then the statement... Dollies[CarrierID] := D990 would put the value of 888 into ZR60123   When “CarrierID” has a value of  990 then the statement... Dollies[CarrierID] := D990 would put the value of 888 into ZR60990
  7. Power LED directly from PLC output

    None at all
  8. Adding an extra remote HMI to an existing Q02U PLC

      This may be of interest (if you do not already have it) Attached is a download link of a very comprehensive listing all of cables (and pinouts) used throughout the Mitsubishi range - connecting everything to everything. Kudos to the guy who made it – it must have took days.   https://www.dropbox.com/sh/bpteo8430v78pjm/AACwDPFxZaAg9LXUQMxhxN9Ba?dl=0    
  9. NEWBIE-Fx3u LED ERROR (BLINKING) error no.6564

    Does you PLC have a CC-Link module attached? This is a module that allows the PLC to talk to other PLC's or control remote I/O.  
  10. GX Works 3 '..Memory is Insufficient...'

      Running fine on 2 x 64bit Windows 10 prof installs here in our office.  
  11. E1000 HMI to Web Page

    image upload A bit basic - but could you not just put a shortcut to each machine on the desktop. We have done this before on the E1000 series (using Tightvnc). The user just clicks on the icon for the machine he wants to control (or just view - setup dependant).
  12.   You should be able to do this using using the HMI. I have not used the T7F-2 but if it is iX just follow the setup in the pdf below. https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0ahUKEwjI-ICxwYDRAhWJJSwKHboJA3QQFggkMAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.accs.cz%2FFiles%2FFA%2FBEIJER%2FDownload%2FStart-up%2520document%2C%2520Configuring%2520data%2520exchange%2520in%2520iX%2520Developer%2520(KI00323).pdf&usg=AFQjCNE47XUkEOr44Yua9zqDUiFasWwN7g&bvm=bv.142059868,d.bGg&cad=rja        
  13. FX-ENET-P502 Modbus TCP interface nformation

        Didn’t think you could use an FX3U-ENET-P502 module with FX3GE PLC because the PLC has already got onboard Ethernet. Just like you can’t put two ENET modules on the same PLC (well this is what Mitsubishi told us when we asked a few years ago). I would be interested if anybody knows different.  
  14. Q01U CPU (E71) TO E1101 HMI

      Does the HMI actually come up with an error (Error STN blah blah blah) - or is it just that values of the PLC that are not shown?    
  15. Q01U CPU (E71) TO E1101 HMI

    The port number does not matter if you use the settings as shown for the PLC. To get Simultan you need to enter 255,255,255,255 for the transition target IP address (it basically means that any unused UDP port number can be used). I have just created a basics PLC and HMI project (the PLC is in IEC) on our test rigs that works with the above settings. You can download them from... https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ksd4p3m3uno1i6f/AACJeYfrpWeLOkIggvQYJkXxa?dl=0   Also check the Operational settings are set to “always wait for Open (Communication Possible at STOP time) Regards
