  1. HMI Mounting Hardware

    I can't be certain, but i think these would fit. https://www.automationdirect.com/adc/shopping/catalog/hmi_(human_machine_interface)/graphical_hmi_devices/hmi_accessories/ea-mg-bz2-brk
  2. Real Time Timer on FX5U

    Somehow i never knew about THS option. Good to know! 
  3. Voltage Measure

    If you can make due with 4 voltage level triggers, this might work for you.  https://www.automationdirect.com/adc/shopping/catalog/process_control_-a-_measurement/signal_conditioners/limit_alarms_(analog_input,_relay_output)/fc-3rly4  
  4. PLC QCPU exceeds program memory

    you can also uncheck the comments from your write dialog. Often times that will save tons of space. 
  5. Corrupt program?? GX works2

    try to reformat the USB drive and start fresh.  I have one flash drive that always tells me to repair or fix but i just ignore it. 
  6. When you do a read / write select "Device Data"  This will backup any data that is setup under 'Detail' option. 
  7. Short way to write contacts in OR gate ?

    I call this the not-not in my head.   
  8. That's why I love forums. 5 year old posts still help people. 
  9. Shifting data by bytes

    Im trying to picture it, but what exactly do you want the final string to be? Currently it looks like this:  R10700     2  0  R10701     .  j R10702     o b   What your describing sounds something like this:  R10700     [ ]  2   (thats a blank space) R10701     0  .  R10702     j   o R10703    b   In which case just adjust your $MOV to be " 20.job" then AND H00FF With the D10700
  10. PLC built in ethernet vs Ethernet module (QJ71E71-100)

    One thing I had discovered was using a built in port, with a heavy load process, and running several ethernet connections to trace database, HMIs, other PLC etc.. was when monitoring the code, it would overwhelm the built in port and shut down connections.  We switched the external traffic to a -100 card, and all communication issues were resolved. 
  11. String Compare Issues

    OOOOOOOO I didn't realize the 00h was required, i thought it was showing that as a place holder like a string did not need to fill both Bytes.  
  12. String Compare Issues

    I am trying to set up a string compare [ $= "Text" D### ] . But it's not passing when it should. So i tried pushing the string to a place holder register [ $= D###1 D##2 ], but its still not matching, but when i just do a double compare [ d= D##1 D##2 ] it passes.    How is my string failing but the numbers obviously match?    Struggling to get picture to attach. Please see here for example.  https://imgur.com/a/w1ckk64  
  13. Mitsubishi GTDesigner 3 Alarm Summary

    I believe alarm ID allows you to set up separate alarm histories, but all of my systems that is just left at 1 (and also set to 1 in the User alarm observation) Under the Alarm Display > Setting Tab > Make sure Display Target : ALL ALARM, this should show all current alarms
  14. GX Works 2 Menu Dragged off Screen

    You can either reset everything OR if possible connect to a larger resolution screen.  I have this issue all the time bc at my desk (QHD Sreen) i set the cross ref list on the opposite screen. But then line-side that list remains off screen. 
  15. instead of using FIND for the D10020 address, which will only show contacts or coils directly addressed as such.   use cross reference. That will show any place that address is used in Bulk moves See examples from my program.
