  1. FX3 High Speed Counter

    Hello! I'm testing the 1-phase 1-count input high speed counter on a FX3U-32M/DSS. It's reading pulses from a FX5U-32M/ES, 0.5s on 0.5s off. The testing code uses: OUT_C_32(TRUE,CC235,10); DHCMOV_M ( ANDF( TRUE , M8013 ) ,C235,1,Pulses); The problem I encounter is that I keep getting around 4 counts per pulse and calculating the las 10 seconds I get between 3.5 and 4.5 counts per second. The SS terminals of both PLCs are connected to each other and to the - signal of the 24V power supply, I tried with and without a a resistor connected to the X0 input. Is this counter actually 4 counts per pulse? I can't seem to find a device to configure this and the measurement is quite poor. Am I missing something?  
  2. GT Designer library use

    Hi everyone, I'm trying to find a way to efficiently update graphic design and menus. We usually have to make changes to quite large GT Designer projects, something like changing the menu button design on every screen. I try to use the data browser function and try to filter the object I'm trying to change in every screen, but it's not possible to use this process in every case. I tried to use the library and templpate functions, but this only works if I update the library and then insert those objects in every screen. Is there any option to auto update a template from the library? or a combination of the data browser and updating the objects in the library I'm not finding? Any tips would be helpful!
  3. GT Designer library use

    Aaaaah I think that's it, I was using overlaps and superimpose windows for menus and interactivity but not for "permanent" content. I see now that some of the examples in the documentation use them for this. I'll test a bit to learn how to use them with layers and stacking order. Thanks a lot!
  4. SLMP/MC Protocol 3E Frame on FX3

    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...

    I think this solves my confusion, thanks!
  6. SLMP/MC Protocol 3E Frame on FX3

    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
