  1. Network Config

    I am wondering if anyone has Network configurator v3.59 with integrated safety software? Many Thanks.

    So I have a list of which B and W are assigned to the different PLC's within the plant. I have 4 PLC's which use the same B and W. If you take a look at the attached file, my 4 PLC's use those same B and W. This PLC has been assigned  2740-277F and as you can see this PLC isn't using that range.

    I am working though some software and I came across NET II to NET10. Within this software I have duplicated B's & W's with other PLC's in the network (Not assigned to that PLC). Would this have any issues with the other PLC's and what is NET II?  Many Thanks,
  4. Special Relay Advice

    As part of a recent contract, my client has requested an Iconic's screen closely related to the ‘CC IE Control Diagnostics’ screen in GX Works. The network consists of 15 PLC's, connected in a loop using CC IE Control. Each of the stations in the loop (numbers 1-15) are connected as module 1 (except station 9, which is module 2) and can send and receive data to/from the adjacent stations in the loop via Ethernet (with 15 being connected to 1 also). Each station is connected to the next station from Port 2, to Port 1 (e.g. Station 5 Port 2 will be connected to Station 6 Port 1, Station 6 Port 2 to Station 7 Port 1, and so forth). After checking through the ‘MELSEC iQ-R CC-Link IE Controller Network User's Manual’, I have managed to pinpoint the Special Relay (SB) addresses of each of the status lamps, however I’m having issues locating the specific addresses for the health and send/receive status of the inbound and outbound connections from ports 1 and 2 on each station (the green arrow indicators on the ‘CC IE Control Diagnostics’ screen). Could advise as to the correct addresses for these functions? Many Thanks, Chris
  5. Extended File Registers

    Hi, We have extended file registers ZR0 – ZR128000 currently in PLC (IQR CPU R32). There is vital information in this area. We need to change the file size of this to ZR0 – ZR500000 in parameters. When we do so, vital data is lost. There is 600k spare in the CPU/SRAM to accommodate the extra registers. Changing the size using the simulator works fine. Is there a procedure for changing the ZR Register File size and maintaining the current data? Many Thanks, Chris

  10. String to Decimal

    Hi, I am looking to convert string into decimal. I'm using GXWorks3. Is there a function block to do this?  When I look in the manual I can only find decimal to string. Many Thanks
  11. Converting Q04 CPU to iQ-R CPU

    Sorry, after I wrote this, I realised that the R series is actually an iQ-R. An issue that I am having is that the program that I have converted; within GX Works2 function blocks within the program it is using CJ_M (Pointer Branch) when I converted that program over to GX Works3 and I went to Rebuild All, I get errors  Unable to find FB/FUN definition" Error Code 0x11061F52. I have uploaded the program I have converted. GXWorks2_to_GXWorks3.rar
  12. Converting Q04 CPU to iQ-R CPU

    Hi, I am wanting to convert my Q04 (GX Works2) to an iQ-R PLC (GX Works3). I have tried to "Open other format file" and selected GX Works2 Format. When I select the program I want to convert over to GX Works3, the "uploaded image" pops up. If I select "OK" on that pop-up, it converts my project to an R120CPU.  When I then try to change the module type, I cannot change my module type from the RCPU series.  Could someone advise on how I could go about doing this? Many Thanks
  13. Sorting program

    I have attached a program that I am currently working on.   I am having one issue. When I put two numbers the same go though my sort program, the string attached to those numbers don't match up. Could you please advise? Sort Program Decant.gx3
  14. Create Number Order FB on GX Works3

    Hi, I am trying to create my own function block on GX Works 3. What I am trying to do is create a function block to place my inputs in order of how many is in them. In my uploaded image are going to be my inputs. So I am wanting to place them from highest to lowest depending on how many have been counted in my inputs. Can you please advise on how I should go about this.  Many Thanks.
  15. Function block for indexing and look up

    Brilliant, got that sorted. Thanks so much for the help.
