FX5U and FX5-ENET/IP

11 posts in this topic

Hello Guys,

I need some Help to Configure my Program for EthernetIP. I Have to Link my Digital and Analog In-/Outputs to EthernetIP to Control it over a Fanuc Robot.

Has someone do that? Some Ideas?

You already have the FX5-ENET/IP module. It's just been released.

 

Do you have:
GX Works3 (Ver. 1.050C or later)
EtherNet/IP Configuration Tool for FX5-ENET/IP (Ver. 1.00A or later)
X5U/FX5UC (Ver. 1.110 or later)

My Problem is, I have a FX5U with 1.066, its not running with the E-NET/IP, I Just Ordered one with 17X0001 or Higher Serial Number.

Have you an Example how i can Build my Program to Communicate my Digital IN X1 over EthernetIP ?

You are sure you want to communicate with "Ethernet/IP" - the protocol? And not Ethernet or TCP/IP? There's a huge difference in the two, so a precise answer here will clarify a lot. The reason I'm asking is because I googled "Digital IN X1" and at first glance it looks to be a door-entry system. Could you specify the manufacturer and model-number you want to communicate with using the FX5?

And just to be sure, it is the protocol Ethernet/IP transferring over Ethernet you want to use?

I Have to Communicate with a Fanuc Robot Arcmate 100iD, its running ArcTool Software and the Fanuc is the Server. Ethernet/IP is the Recommended Field Bus System of the Customer.

I made setup for Fanuc using Ethernet/IP network. However I had to use special C type CPU for Q-series Mitsubishi.

Comunication is set-up using dedicated software: EIP4CCPU from Mitsubishi.

I've never seen FX5U which is using Ethernet/IP protocol

They send me (I hope it arrives in the next Days) an FX5U with Firmware  Ver. 1.110 or later. It will be Possible with that one. Can you send me an Example, how you Build your Program for Share your In- and  Outputs with the Fanuc?

I got the Parts today, after Update my new FX5U to 1.110, no Errors now. The EthernetIP Configuration Tool have found the ENET/IP Module. Now, how can I Share my In and Outputs over the ENET/IP Module with the Fanuc?

I'm made only settings for Q-series, but maybe it could be similar:

1. Make configuration of Fanuc robot (I belive you purchased required option) - need to set up IP adress in same group like PLC and DI/DO amount

2. Using Mitsubishi ENET/IP configuration tool need to set correct IP adress for CPU

3. Add Robot controller to the network - you need correct EDS file (I have for R30iB)

4. Set correct IP for robot controller, size of I/O (same amount as you did on robot controller) and finally adress where comunication signals should be send (in my case Ethernet IP module was istalled just after CPU so Input adress was U3E1\G10000, and Output U3E0\G10000)

5. In GX Works you need to transfer those adresses to some register. I used command BMOV. Example: BMOV U3E1\G10000 D800 K33

U3E1\G10000 - from where

D800 - to where

K33 - amount of words

 

hope somehow it can be helpful.
