GX Works 2 Global Variable Update
Asaddoris replied to Colin Carpenter's topic in MitsubishiI have had to do this with my program due to all of the variable tags and most all the program was written in German. This is what I did to make life easier. The variable that you want to change the name to highlight it and the go to the Find/Replace tab on top, once opened go to Find Device, this should populate the tag ID number. Then what you can do is in the replace section, assign a new tag ID and click the All Replace, it will search the entire project and update the tag. This is by far the easiest way to update your tag information cumulatively. If you try and update tag file with a CSV you will still have to replace each tag individually, or use the replace all as mentioned previously. Hope this helps.
SoftGot2000 Alarm History
Asaddoris replied to dvdehghan's topic in MitsubishiMake sure the devices that the GOT is monitoring are latched bits in your PLC, there is a section in the PLC parameter that you can define as a latched or rather battery backed memory that will retain the data after power cycle. If they are not a latched bit you will need to define a range that is latched, but be careful that no other devices are addressed to those or they will retain as well when power is cycled.
QJ71C24N-R4: G.INPUT and G.OUTPUT
Asaddoris replied to joseph_cs's topic in MitsubishiTry and use a different baud rate, I noticed when I was setting up a serial barcode scanner that if the baud rate was not correct, I would not get the data or it would not make sense with the data that input. Not sure if that is the problem, but I would try it. Also as you noted previously, anytime you make a parameter change you need to either reset the CPU or cycle power to it, either one works, if not the changes will not take effect.
Serial module with a barcode scanner
Asaddoris posted a topic in MitsubishiHello everyone, I had seen a couple of threads concerning a serial module from Mitsubishi but still wasn't able to get the answers I needed, so I am no longer a lurker but a member. I have a Q06 PLC and QJ71C24N-R2 serial module, I am using a Sick IDM 260-100H scanner. The serial module has never been installed and currently the scanner is being interfaced with the GOT2000, but I am limited on what I can do there, so I bought the serial module in hopes of having more possibilities using it. So my goal would be to scan different bar codes such as a DM and 2D line bar code and have that data input into a register, from there I will be able to write the code of logic to manipulate that data the way I want. The problem is I have a couple issues. First when I scan the DM code, it inputs into the device register that I assigned in the auto refresh tab for that device, but not the entire code, I would assume this is just an issue with the allotted address assigned. Problem with that is I haven't been able to figure out how to extend this to reflect the entire string. The other issue I have is when I scan the 2D line bar code I get nothing. I am not 100% sure if this is due to the scanner and it possibly programmed for only DM's but I have replaced this scanner before and I just plugged it in and it started doing what the broken one had done, so I don't think this is the issue, but I will not rule it out. I have attached a couple screen shots of the switch setting and the auto refresh screen, but that is all that I had changed to the module parameters to get where I am at. Any information will be useful and appreciated.
