  1. Mitsubishi EDS file location? (GX Works3)

    @GreenMan Thanks for that. I didn't realize at first that you have to be logged in to the mitsubishi electric account to be able to see all of the search results. I was only seeing 2 PDF files before logging in and thought there was nothing useful to see but after logging in I was able to see the Zip file, and download and install the module. Now it works. Thanks for your help.    
  2. Mitsubishi EDS file location? (GX Works3)

    Thanks for the responses.  @FRANK RUIZ - I think you may be right, I probably just have to contact our Mitsubishi rep. @Crossbow - I am not sure what sort of file it is I need but whatever it is I need to open the .gx3 file that has that FLnet module in it. As it is I cannot even open the file. I am not that interested in the FLnet module in this case, rather the logic in the .gx3 file. I can open other .gx3 files that don't have that module it them.               
  3. Hi, Does anyone know where to get EDS files for GX Works3 ?  I can't open a file that I need to access because it has an "Unsupported Module". The module is 007ER-1FL2-T, it shows up on the Mitsubishi website but I cannot see any links to EDS files or any software related to this module. Cheers, Olly  
  4. Thanks@WattUp, @Gambit.I appreciate the help and I will have a go.  
  5. Hi All, As a system integrator coming from an Allen-Bradley based environment to a Mitsubishi based environment (GX Works 2, Q series PLCs), I am used to doing this with Allen-Bradley PLCs: when you hit save while online, you are prompted to upload the values in the tags and can save these values and view them offline - which is useful when doing modifications and analysis offline, as well as backing up settings in case your PLC dies and has to be replaced with a brand new one. I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a way to store the current values of the devices in a Mitsubishi PLC to my PC along with the .gxw  file that is saved when doing a "Read PLC"? I am aware you can set up a File Register but it seems to only save ZR devices as well as specifically designated "Extended Data/Link" D and W devices, but most data is not stored in these devices. Thanks
  6. Hi all, I recently found out that you can turn on this option to allow the keyboard on your PC/laptop to enter values for data entry fields on the GT Simulator3 (screenshot attached).  I realize there are many people on this forum that probably already know about this but in case there is anyone out there that didn't already know...I hope you find this useful. This is a big deal to me because I like to thoroughly test my PLC code and HMIs/GOTs and now having to create screens with many entry-fields, being able to use the keyboard instead of dragging the mouse over the screen click here, click there just to enter values saves a lot of time and tedium. I wish someone had shown me this 12 months ago.  
  7. Hi All, I am trying to find a list of internal devices are used in the GOT, so that if I need to use a new one, I don't inadvertently use one that is already in use, creating undesired effects/events. Does anyone know if there is a way to do this? Cheers
  8. GX Works 2 Menu Dragged off Screen

    Also, I have the same issue with GT Designer 3. I have discovered that with GX Works 2 I can right-click the toolbars area and select "Reset" which brings it all back but don't see that option for GT Designer 3
  9. Hi All, I am accustomed to dragging windows between different monitors as I work, to say display PLC program software on one monitor and HMI software on the other,  for example. The issue I am having is sometimes due to my own inaccuracy, I accidentally grab the Menu from GX Works2 and drag it to the top of my upper monitor and it unfortunately doesn't hit the top of this monitor and snap like a normal window but rather continues until it is in the Nether-space just off the visible screen. It is easy to see roughly where the menu is by pressing, for example, Alt+P and the bottom of the "Project" menu becomes visible at the top of the upper monitor. The problem is then it is a pain to bring it back...through generally possible by manipulation of zoom percentage in the windows display settings menu My question is, is there any way to lock the GX Works2 menu position so it cannot be dragged off the GX Works2 window?   I have managed to make this goofy mistake a few times so any help would be appreciated. Thanks kindly.        
  10. @Goran Vuckovic Thanks for the correction. You are right, I am looking at a Q series PLC. However, even though my example was not very good, the point I was trying to make was to and that it sounds to me like there is a mismatch of the registers used compared to the registers configured. Does this sound like it might be a possible cause of the issue to you? It sounds like you have a better grasp of Mitsubishi PLCs than I do. I haven't used FX series PLC so I may be way off  
  11. @Goran Vuckovic, I am surprised by your comment.  This is a simulation of code from site using many M8000+ bits and it appears to work just fine both on site and in my simulation.....  
  12. It sounds to me like it could be that you have a device (e.g. Relay or Latch) in your program that is outside the range set in the PLC settings. For example: I have "8K"  Device points of Latch Relays in my PLC Parameters window/Device tab (see first attachment), as I understand it this relates to 8192 (2^13) "L" devices (L0 - L8191) and if I try to add L8192 to my program I get an error with similar verbage to your error. I can't write to a PLC now to test this but I am guessing there is either a mismatch between the PLC Parameters in your gxw file and the Devices used in the PLC currently, or a mismatch between the PLC Parameters in the PLC currently and the Devices used in your gxw file. I am not sure it this would work but you could try Write just PLC parameters and then write the Programs or vice versa and see if this helps.  
  13. CNC to PLC Help

    I have to say I am not sure I understand your question but if you are asking where the  CNC:I1:Input array values come from, Joe E. is correct and I believe you should be able to find an object called "CNC" in your I/O tree. Or is your question about what the BTD instructions are doing?
  14. Not sure but manual says when OK status indicator is Red: "The controller detected a nonrecoverable major fault and cleared the project  from memory."  I suggest connecting to it via USB while the OK status indicator is Red and try to see if you can find the fault code when attempting to go online Studio 5000/RS Logix 5000 or pull it up on RS Linx/FT Linx and go from there.
