CC Link IE Field Basic

14 posts in this topic

Dear all!

I'm working with PLC Mitsubishi Qn CPU.

At the Ethernet Port, I see "CC-Link IE Field Basic" label but I don't know, we can use this port for CC-Link IE Field or not?

If we can you, how to config in GX_Works2

Any one used CC-Link IE Field help me to explain about it.

CC-Link IE Field and CC-Link IE Field Basic are two different networks.

In short.


CC-Link IE Field - 1Gbps for this you will need an extra card or if you use iQ-R use a RxxEN CPU.

CC-Link IE Field basic -100 Mbps (ip adresses) this can be done via the standard CPU port. 
You can find these setting in your PLC parameters=> Built in ethernet port settings => CC-link IE Field basic setting (button)
If you do not see it update your GX Works 2

Thanks Gambit!

In my GX_Works2, I don't see  "CC-link IE Field basic setting"  button.

I'm using GX_Works2 V1.540N. Can you tell me the Version if I want to use CC-Link IE Field basic?

Thanks and best regard!

Dear all!

I upgraded GX_Works2 to V1.570U successfully. And I can config CC-Link IEF Basic.

After study some thing, I realize that CPU of PLC always is Master station (we can not config it as Slave station).

Any more ideas, please share together.

Thanks and best regard!

Yes, @Gambit!

I try to connect 2 PLC Mitsu Q06UDV CPU using  CC-Link IEF Basic .

In the config window, I can not config the CPU as Slave station.

Have you use CC-Link IEF Basic? Can you share your ideas.

Well you can setup fixed buffer program. FB are available from the mitsubishi site.

But as you have two universal CPU why not just use the deicated instructions for  reading or writing to another CPU.

sp.read sp.write take a look at the manual built in ethernet port

Yes, thanks @Gambit

With another protocol, I finished. I just want to try CC-Link IEF Basis built-in ethernet port.

Now ok, I understood about it.

The iQ-R and L series support simple PLC communication.

This is easy the set-up. No programming code required

In the last version of GX Works2 (1.576) the simple PLC communication is available for Q PLC's.
