  1. Hello I have an old test rig (hydraulic cylinder applies pressure to a crank in sawtooth pattern) project written in gx developer for the Q03 plc. To this plc is connected a 1041 beijer panel, I have uploaded the project to E-designer. I am rewriting the sequence code because a new but similar test is prepared. Have a PID-block in gx works 2 (not in a simple project sadly) i would like to import  and use in gx developer. This is causing me some trouble though.  Can anyone tell me how to get the PID-blocks from GX Works 2 to GX Developer? Do you recommend me to upgrade the project to GX Works 2 instead? How will the panel react? I need to reprogram this as well. Cheers // Rolf
  2. Start Ladder Logic Test

    Hi, there! I had got GX-Developer Ver.8, which is very different from the plc programs that I have learned before. I have read many tutorials and watch it but I still don't know how to start ladder logic test. Many other people simply click on 'start or end ladder logic test' but mine was greyed. Anyone has solution? Or I just missed a couple steps of simulation? Though it is very basic problem, I will put a deep gratitude for your reply.
  3. Highlighted line in GX Developer

    Working in GX Developer Version 8.107M, some of the code that I have been working with seems to be hidden.  It appears that the lines turn highlighter yellow, keeping me from viewing code.  I've looked into this and cannot find a solution.  Does anyone know how to expand the code? Thank you.
  4. GX Developer FX in Education

    Hi - We are currently running GX Developer FX at our College in the UK. We use this in the classroom to teach our students how to programme for PLC devices. We now need to upgrade to a newer version that is compatible with Windows 10 - we are currently using version 8.03. My questions are: Can this be downloaded for free to use in education? Is there a contact within Mitsubishi that anyone can share that I can contact to chase this down? Any feedback on this will be greatly apprciated. Thanks Scott
  5. Convert int to float

      I'm trying to read a result from encoder (which in pulse) and convert it to milimeter. To do that, i need to devide it. But here is the problem when i move the result of the encoder read to register (D) then devide it with another register, it doesn't show result in the monitor. It looks like i need to convert it to float first, but i dont know how. My command for the division is DEDIV D17 D40 D22. is there anyway to solve it? Thanks, i really need this. I try to look in the forum but i dont found it. I'm using mitsubishi FX3U-48 MT ESS. I'm new in this forum, if i break a rule, please tell me.   
  6. E1011 and FX3U RS422

    I am trying to link to an FX3U with GX Developer. The system has an E1011 connected to the FX3U via RS422. I need to keep the HMI connected so would like to connect via the this possible using the HMI ENET port as transport to the FX? Thank you

  8. GX Developer timer command

    Hello everyone! Could someone help me and tell me what the "D212" means? I know that to define the time of a TIMER you must put a k and number (miliseg).   Help.... :(
  9. GX Developer commands

    Hello everyone! Could someone help me and explain me this block of a ladder diagram I'm working with? I do understand the M800 is always ON contact, for the PLC to not lose the values.  Also I know that the DIV is a division, the FLT is a integer to floating point (thing I don't understand), the DEMUL is a floating point multiplication (thing I also don't understand), the INT is a floating point to 16-bit integer, and the MOV is for moving a value from a data register to an other data register. Help... :(  
  10. GX Developer Special Relays

    HELLO TO EVERONE!!Could someone please help me find a special relay command (not a real relay) that stays activated when it receives a pulse from a NO contact (X0), and desactivies when it receives a second pulse from the same NO contact (X0)? So en conclusion I need to control a relay with only button.I hope you understand me... Help please....
  11. GX Developer Simulation problems

    Hello to everybody!  I have same trouble with the simulation, I CAN'T SIMULATE :(  The botton for simulation is not active, the PLC I'm using is a FX3U Mitsubishi. Any recommendation?
  12. line true M bit coil not ON

    Hello system is Q06UDEH GX developer 8116W Large system 2 PLcs with 60K lines of code between them, SFC ladder,  Issue,      all conditions HIGH, coil not ON or  visa versa  (not all condition ON but coil high) also happen with data comparisons, moves etc. what i have looked at so far,    -batch monitor confirms HIGH/LOW states - programs all scanned (all 35 of them) -no MC control ( some CJ and for NEXT seems unrelated) -force history is clear - not willing to rest CPU as this is a large press and it is running   -widespread condition throughout the code  - only monitor one window at a time Q - is there some monitor setting that I haven't found? over lapping registers Have gone online with original backup just to make sure something didn't happen with the read. No way i'm doing an edit when I cant tell whats going on with this. thanks!          
  13. How can I do a hardware 'factory reset' on a Q UDE CPU .... NOT using any software such as GX Developer or Works? I understand in the 'Write to PLC' menu it's possbile to Clear / Format / Arrange PLC memory - this isn't what I'm asking for. Under normal circumstances we routinely reload the PLC code / parameters / intelligent function data all remotely from our offices to our customers facilities and all works well. With the newer Q UDE CPUs it is possible to scan the network and effectively do a remote bare-metal recover to a new CPU. If the Q UDE CPU became unresponsive I would like to know how to reset the CPU back to factory defaults. In this scenario we would be asking local site electricians to carry out this reset procedure - after which we would reload the code remotely from the office. Documentation says power down CPU remove BAT for > 10 mins. I’ve powered down, left in STOP state and removed BAT for 16hours - then tested this morning – IP / program perfect and online immediately without battery connected. This retention is a wonderful feature – but if I want to deliberately do a hardware factory reset how do I do it ?
  14. Hi all. Long time reader, first time poster. I am tasked to make a couple of module specific function blocks for communication between our Mitsubishi PLC (GX IEC Developer 7.04) and a B&R remote IO over Profibus. A number of these blocks would then be used, depending on the RIO setup. Reading should be straight forward, just read X amount of words, starting from address Y. Writing is trickier as Mitsubishi prefers 16/32 bit Data whereas B&R batches Data in bytes! As I have several output modules in the RIO. I need to send my info "chained" together. Example: Module 1: 2 Bytes Module 2: 3 Bytes Module 3: 2 Bytes Totals: 7 bytes or 4 words. Sending the first word is no problem. Neither is the next two words (I will just have 1 empty byte at the end of the third word). But then the info to the third module should start in the middle of the third word. Any idea how I could solve this? Experimental: At the moment the blocks have inputs (bits), which are stored to a bit-array inside the block and then linked to an output. My idea at the moment is to merge all module-wise output bit arrays to one big bit array, converting that to INT and sending it off to the Profibus address. But I have not yet found a way to merge the arrays and shift them so all data is where it should be. Above example: ARRAY [0..15] OF BOOL + ARRAY [0..23] OF BOOL + ARRAY [0..15] OF BOOL Totals: ARRAY [0..63] OF BOOL or [0..71] counting the spare byte. Converted to 8 Words and forwarded through Profibus. Thank you in advance.
  15. Hello everybody, As many of you can see, I took a course onto development the user libraries, that able to simplify extremely a PLC programming process, to help programmers to increase a productivity of their labor, to reduce a program code and quantity of used system variables, to improve readability of programs. A part of libraries has been already developed and looks fine. Also I full with new ideas, plans and could design new and new that then to share these libraries with other programmers. The work is bringing me a pleasure, however, at current situation I can not allow for me to share the libraries for free. I can explain why. First of all, it takes my time, which is money, and I should feed my family, also the work eats a health, which is not infinitive. The second, those who can get it for free, will not appreciate the labor and will distribute it to the left and to the right. The third, ME has not an interest to my offer, to the products and doesn't want to help to make it available for all. What I'd like to propose to you: If you have an interest, I can offer to open a subscription to the ready and new libraries, which will be developed further. What I can promise and guarantee: I will collect wishes and requirements of subscribers and all can vote, what should be realized at first. The subscribers will can get a release with up to four small libraries or one big (for example, such like Modbus Master/Slave library) every month, that will fit to the requirements and the collective choice. What's a payment for the subscription? I suppose a fee in 100 USD per annum will not be predatory for a subscriber's pocket. The fee will cover costs in case, if the number of subscribers will exceed 70 people. Thanks to all for the attention and I'd like to offer to discuss the proposal in this topic.
  16. ON/OFF Timer for Mitsubishi FX

    FB_TIMER_ON_OFF The FB is a part of RTC library and implements a timer, based on RTC, for ON and OFF a control bit, e.g. to turn ON/OFF a load in the time interval, and can be easily added into your program in desired quantity. The FB is supplied with E (Enable) input, EO (Output to Control Bit), and can operate in one of two modes: HMS = Hours + Minutes + Seconds (daily timer) MDH = Month + Date + Hours (yearly timer) Each setpoint of ON and OFF time settings should be represented as Array of INT [0...2] type and contain a time data according to the chosen mode. Thus, for example: - in HMS mode: a control bit can be turned on at 02:03:14 am and then turned off at 06:04:17 pm, or turned on at 05:12:27 pm and turned off at 07:06:22 am; - in MDH mode: a control bit can be turned on 3th February at 02:00 pm and then turned off 4th June at 05:00 pm, or turned on 12th November at 03:00 pm and turned off 6th March at 10:00 pm. If the values of both time settings are the same, the FB output will not be activated. Supporting PLC CPUs: All FX Program memory: - 34 steps per each FB instance - 4 steps for entire project (reading from RTC) System variables: M - 3 bits (for entire project) The library is compatible with GX IEC Developer and GX Works2 software .
  17. Hi guys, I have a problem with GX IEC Developer 7.04, i hope some of you can help me. When i try to connect with the PLC type - Melsec FX1s- 30MR-DC, there is an error: I check all COM port settings, and everything is ok. Com_port parameters: FX Parameters: Transfer setup: PLC Type in the program is the same like physical one (FX1s). I try to change all of this stuffs but there is no result. The cable I use for comunnication is this type: Thank you very much in advance. Have a nice day! eng R. Bukov
  18. Hi all and nice to meet you here! I hope that someone with experience helps me and I hope in future to offer also my help to someone. I am having problem with a Mitsubishi plc with A2N (S1) cpu installed on a machinery. The machinery stayed 20 days switched off and with battery empty as I realised when switched on and the problems come out. I changed the battery but the problem didnt resolved. The plc gave error with stable error led and flashing run led on the cpu. Also an error led stable on a (double role) module of printer and ram. I have to say that I have never used GX developer environment before and it is my first contact with Mitsubishi plcs. Reading some manuals (found on the internet) and by using GX developer I read from plc the faults. Register D9008 was set at 12 error meaning MISSING END INS. I Followed the described flow charts from a2n manual for reseting faults but the situation was the same always as described above. I tried to read the program from plc and succeded to read it. It is a lader with about 6000 lines. Anyway I have no previous experience of the GX development environment but I tried to put the missing END in the program as sugested also by the flow chart in the manual. At this point I have to say that it was automatically added from gx developer as I can remeber from an appeared message. I verified also many times the program on gx developer with the plc and the only difference was that missing END at the last line of ladder program. Anyway I tried to write back to plc the program with correct end but it was not possible. I tried several times. The error mesages took with Gx developer was the following : "THE SAME T/C COIL EXISTS IN PROGRAM (MAIN) AND/OR PROGRAM (MAIN-SFC). THE VALUES ARE SET TO BE THE SAME AS IN THE FIRST FOUND T/C COILFROM THE TOP OF PROGRAM" "THERE IS A DEVICE IN THE PROGRAM (MAIN) THAT IS OUTSIDE OF THE RANGE. CHECK THE PROGRAM AND CORRECT THE DEVICE THAT IS OUTSIDE THE RANGE." Anyway I decided to delete the plc memory. After that the run was stop blinking and the error led went off. Only the error on the printer-ram module was on (This module was changed with a know functioning one witout any variation on behaviour). I thought that problem has gone now that the cpu is empty. I tried again to write the program to the plc but again i take the above mentioned messages. Now I have an empty plc and a program on the Gx developer that cannot be written to plc!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am desperate!!! I do not know how to proceed. I am not knowing the mitsubishi development environment. Other than Gx developer I tried to install the GX simulation but it not works to my computer. At this point I dont know even if the ladder program is somehow corrupted after the described above messages. I can sent the code (GX developer project) and any other information to someone expert, if necessary, to have an opinion. Please help!!! Let me know how to proceed!! I have to write back the code to plc !!!!! Thank you all in advance!! Now i realised that there is SFC that is my problem. Could someone help please? Big part of ladder is in yellow color. How can i proceed?
  20. Hi everybody! After several years at the forum this is my first question to experts: What is the syntax of INDEX_M and OUTEX_M instructions in GX IEC Developer IL? Thanks
  21. Hi, I have a challenge with GX developer version 8.63R (SW8D5C-GPPW-E). I'm trying to verify 2 projects (offline). Some programs I know there are changes but they are not shown in the verification. In 1 program I did see the last checked change was in step 1496 (next change I did see by manual check was step 1502. it seems like this type of verification is limited to 1500 steps to check. Is there any way I can make this offline verification work? the most progams that we have in our project are over 2000 steps. big thanks in foreward
