  1. ethernet comms between different networks?

    you do have the subnet set to 255.255.0.0 in all PLCs right?  You mention a test leaving it blank, but i think that would actually default it to 255.255.255.0
  2. ethernet comms between different networks?

    I have never used the function block method, but I would bet the Station number still matters, so verify the network numbers match and station number should be unique for each PLC.    "Only get the plant friday night"  -- this sounds all too familiar hahahaha  if you have some extra PLCs laying around I highly recommend setting up a test bench, that was the only way i got the communication worked out. 
  3. ethernet comms between different networks?

    Assuming your entire network is 192.168.*.* based, if you are on a 10.25** network that might be an issue.  I believe you would setup each PLC to be network 1, station 1,2, and 3. Then use [Station No <-> IP address] to point the stations to the other IP    then using your  GP.READ you setup which station you are reading from. 
  4. How to make a recipe?

    That PDF is incredibly detailed.  
  5. GT 2000 down convert to GT 1000?

    Utilize project only allows me to select another GTW project, not the GTX project from my GOT2000
  6. GT 2000 down convert to GT 1000?

    Downgrading because I am trying to copy the screens of an existing system to create a new one, but we parts bin shopped and I have 4 GOT1000's to use. 
  7. Does anyone know a way to convert GOT 2000 screens to a GOT 1000? 
  8. mitsubishi software

    I came from using Yaskawa and Omron PLC, and learned the mitsubishi in about 6 minutes.   One look at the Insert menu will show you every keyboard shortcut you will need
  9. I have a feeling that I know the answer, but wanted to check for confirmation.  See attached for a quick example of what I am talking about.  New machine has a SM410 .1s flicker to a INCP to count time passed and stop a conveyor.  I think a H Timer would be more precise but without knowing the deep insides of the PLC I can not be sure.    In the code i have done a test where I have 2 H timers that are .2s longer than set time,  I use the longer one to compare where it was when the flicker triggers the stop,  and it does vary 
  10. Winner winner.   After 1 hour going through everything again I found that issue.  The second PLC card is setup and addressed as 200, but the TO/FROM command required it be H20  and always require to drop the last 0. 
  11. I am trying to setup a CC Link between two machines. I have done this before without issue, but for some reason this is not going well.. I added a second CC link card to CPU2 and set it as ST 24 for the CPU1 network.  CPU 1 : Master.   cc0.jpg.   The original machine was setup using TO/From for each station, so i couldn't add this new link through the GUI.  CPU 2: Local cc1.jpg  When i try to use the GUI to setup this side the buffer stops working. but if i activate any TO/From instruction here i get a system fault with a 2110 SP. Unit Error CPU2 buffer cc2.jpg. But when i block the TO/From you can see the buffer is working at that exact same location specified.    2110 error says I am addressing the wrong card but the buffer proves that I am not. 
  12. SOLVED> Machine builder installed a terminating resistor across DA-DG instead of DA-DB. 
  13. We have a new machine that we are trying to get setup.  We are having a strange symptom that we have never seen.   Every 8-10minutes the Entire CC link network will drop off shutting everything down. At first we thought it was the 24v dropping, but have eliminated that now with our meter.  I ran a CC-Link log and it does show every single station come up in an ‘Data Link error’.    
  14. Screen display reversed.

    That kinda looks like the panel was assembled wrong.  There is no was to mirror like that in the settings. 
  15. Using Ethernet as I/O

    Sorry for the delays. This project was actually removed from the line, and shelved. I will try and get it powered up to get this information
