Hallo. Im hoping someone can shed some light on these topics. The company im working for have been using gx developer iec 7.04 for ages. The setup we have been using is QxUDE plc with beijer HMI and FR-E700 inverters on profibus. Recently(finally) we have been forced to start using gx works 2 because of newer plcs. With new software come new questions as always. And since im feeling we have been hanging in old software for too long. I want to make sure we are up to date this time. The setup we plan on using is QxUDV cpu, CC-link ie (QJ71GF11-T2), FR-A800 inverters and GOT 2000 for HMI I have made a few project in siemens and TIA portal. And software wise it has always annoyed me, that mitsubishi lacked the same integrated software package as siemens. This made me discover navigator. With system labels navigator makes the variable control, hardware setup and project overview im missing from siemens possible. My question to navigator is. Does people use this? i dont see much about it on the forum? is it already outdated? Gx works 2 or 3 Again i cant figure out what is new and what is old. What are the pros and con for choosing either? CC-link ie or CC-link From internet reading. I find that IE is the newest and faster CC-link version? Is the classic CC-link on the way out? If not why should i choose IE over classic? When setting up CC-link IE in navigator i dont get the same hardware in the catalog as CC-link. To setup inverters i need to user general intelligent device station. Whereas in cc-link i can choose FR-inverters. Is this the way it works? or can hardware catalogs be updated somehow? Blocks for FR-A800 Maybe its just me. but i really think the search function on the mitsubishi download page is crap. When i filter QPLC i get LPLC etc. ive been trying to find some blocks to control inverters without luck. Do i start creating it myself or can you point me in the right direction? I know these are a lot of mixes questions. But i feel we have been non-efficient for years because of bad software choices. Hope someone can shed some light one these points.
