SLMP/MC Protocol 3E Frame on FX3

5 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

I have been developing a SLMP 3E Frame UDP client for a PC to comunicate with an FX5 and seem to work great. I'm trying to make it compatible with FX3 and, as far as i know, it should be compatible and understand some commands, but i cannot get it to work with any configuration.

I have tried FX3U-ENET-P502 and ENET-ADP, looking at some examples (EthernetFX3QMC_GW2_V100 and EthernetFX3UQMC_V100) but i cannot find the exact setting used in FX Configurator to configure the ethernet modules, i see it GXW2 but cannot load the program if I choose that configuration.

Any ideas? I guess this should be possible...

The FX3U MC protocol isn't 3E but 1A.  The old A series protocol.

Thanks for the reply!

Does this mean there is no way I cant communicate with the PLC using 3E?

The example i was quoting uses 3E the opposite way I'm looking for:

It uses the same module I intend to use on the FX3 and it is MC Protocol 3E, and my SLMP communications should be compatible with 3E:

I understand this won't work "out of the box", I think it's worth finding a configuration that allows us to communicate in the same way with FX5 and FX3, but is it possible? or I'm wasting my time and should use this library https://github.com/plcpeople/mcprotocol

I understand the confusion but MC protocol for Q is 3E for FX3 1A.
If you have a QnUDV you can use simple PLC comm to exchange data between the PLC's.
 

It also shows that FX and FX3 use a different protocol. You can also find this in  the e-manual viewer
