mitsubishi software

GWWorks3 has to be the worse software on the market. I program quite a few plcs and this is the worse. What a waste of my money. Help files are no help. Took hours just to find out how to add a timer. Still can not get around the software. Wow, with all the different plcs on the market why would anyone want to use Mitsubishi? AT 650 bucks for software, not a good option.

 

I am going to rip out the plc and replace it with some other brand. It came  equipment from China.

Sorry don;t agree at all

Can you be more specific a timer is very easy ?
There is even free e-learning for those who don't know how to use it.

I freaking love the new Help files system (e-manual viewer). Easy updates, bookmarks ... What don't you like?

Really. Using GXWorks3. Me and my buddy spent over 3 hours fumbling around. Never did find out how to enter a rung. We wrote a small program and some odd reason there are numbers to the left looks like octal numbering. Tried to insert a rung and can not. Can add rows or columns but not rungs.  Fumbling around found out how to label one of the elements such as X0 for example.  Finally we gave up and replaced the PLC. How many years did you take to learn the software? We both have experience with Automation Direct products, Allen Bradley, Siemens, Panasonic, IAI, and a couple more and this has to be the worse programming of them all. It was a FX series plc.

Hate bashing a company, but we will not be using Mitsubishi.

With all the plcs out there giving software away free... I spent 650 bucks on this software. Well the company did.

You can even look on YouTube for some tutorials so simple.

I won't go into detail because all of it is very easy  but you say you have all this experience with all these brands but ...

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
