  1. GT 2000 down convert to GT 1000?

    Utilize project only allows me to select another GTW project, not the GTX project from my GOT2000
  2. 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. 
  3. Does anyone know a way to convert GOT 2000 screens to a GOT 1000? 
  4. 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
  5. 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 
  6. 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. 
  7. 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. 
  8. SOLVED> Machine builder installed a terminating resistor across DA-DG instead of DA-DB. 
  9. 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’.    
  10. Screen display reversed.

    That kinda looks like the panel was assembled wrong.  There is no was to mirror like that in the settings. 
  11. 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 
  12. Using Ethernet as I/O

    Sure, I will try and get that for you today. 
  13. I personally just use BMOV , MOV.  I have seen maint techs get confused by FIFO before but setting it up with BMOV and MOV they seem to understand.    BMOV D1000 D1001 K10 MOV D10 D1000
  14. Pointer In GX-Work2

    If you are hoping to use it like an index pointer those are Z.   MOV K10 Z1 MOV D0Z1 D1000   :: Will move D0(+10)=D10 > D1000
  15. Standardize PLC code for new machines

    I think i am going to create a similar solution to @Mitsm83, a spreadsheet with addressing scheme and a small sample program of how we like stepper logic and faults. Perhaps an HMI design template also.
