FX3U-ENET-ADP to Ifix SCADA Help

6 posts in this topic

Hello Everyone,

I am very new to the Mitsubishi PLC world and having a hard time communicating FX3U-ENET-ADP to Ifix SCADA VIA IGS (Kepware) driver.

I am using GXWORX2, and am not sure what settings to insert into the Ethernet settings of the module.

1. Should it be Melsoft Connection, MC Protocol, or data monitoring?

2. Should I be using UDP or TCP?

I have tried Melsoft using 5556 as the port number, but to no avail. I have tried data monitoring briefly, and MC Protocol without assigning any port no and destination IP address.

Mitsubishi Tech recommended me to use MC Protocol.

What are you guys doing to make it happen?

Thanks in advance for the help.

1. MC protocol
2. I always recommend UDP for MC protocol since it is a polled protocol (you already have response control)

Thanks for the response. I was able to resolve the issue after numerous failed attempts.

I basically used MC Protocol with TCP/IP and assigned it to port 5001 in the PLC.

On Kepware/IGS driver side, I entered the IP address followed by the device ID (XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX: Device ID). I selected Mitsubishi Ethernet driver option and tried using Device ID of 0,1 and 2 and none of those worked. I finally decided to try the last allowed Device ID of 255 and lo and behold it started communicating.

Great. However: If you are able to redo the comm setup, I would strongly recommend UDP! Less load on you network and quicker response time from your devices.

I got the same problem. Can you say me the version of your Kepware?
