  1. Data Logging with GT Designer3

    As @Crossbow stated you need actual hardware to have the data log working. I've done a few and just did trial/ error while online with the equipment. Logging the data is as simple as specifying your device. In GT Designer 3 go to Object > Historical Data Display > Place the chart. From here you can change your parameters. Double click on the chart and you can state the device, device type etc.   Hope that helps.
  2. CC-Link Help

    @panic mode Thanks for the reply. Below are the station information snips I took. Some stations are 128 point. Would you still consider it station 38?
  3. CC-Link Help

    Firstly I have almost no experience with CC-Link so bear with me. I have installed a Keyence IL-1000 laser sensor and have it connected to the DL-CL1 CC-Link module. The I/O currently used ends at station 33 so I connected to it and made the DL-CL1 Station 34. The I/O station designation is attached below. I would assume that the station I added (34) would be I/O range 880 to 89F right? As long as I use i/o within that range I'm ok? Attached is the Network Parameters, the remote register starts at D2000. How do you know which register to use? I am try to get the sensor information communicating with the PLC (GX Developer) Yaskawa PLC Software.pdf
  4. Q68ADI Analog Programming

  5. Q68ADI Analog Programming

    Tried uploading images but it's not let me right now..... I'll try again in a bit
  6. Q68ADI Analog Programming

    I have a Q68ADI module already installed by the machine manufacturer and they are using channels 1,2 & 3. I installed a Keyence IL-600 laser measurement sensor and have wired in the analog wires of the sensor to channel 4 of the card, sensor is set to 4-20Ma. I am just having a bit a difficulty programming this and seeing the analog values change on the PLC. Attached are some pictures of the programming of the other channels. Just trying to understand how to write the ladder correctly. What is the function of "H"? From reading the manual i did not see this in there but i do think i need to write in a "TO" & "FROM" statement. Any help is appreciated.

  8. GT Designer Calculator?

    Ok that's what i thought.   There are a number of applications where the operator would need/ use a calculator and having that built in may seem easy but these particular calculations are not always the same and a simple calculator function would/ is the best option.
  9. GT Designer Calculator?

    I would like to place a calculator on the GOT for our operators to use. I looked through the library on GT Designer but did not see one. Before i make my own just thought i'd ask if anyone knows if this is hidden some where in the software or not?   Thanks!
  10. Data Log Not Saving as CSV Help

    @Taykl you have any more info on your issue? I got the data logging working on mine  
  11. I been playing around with data logging and on a few GT27 series i have the data logging saving to the USB in both G2L format and CSV. On my one GOT, same model, same settings, it will only save to the USB as G2L and there are no CSV files on there. Not sure what i am doing wrong. Any help would be appreciated!  
  12. Save to USB Switch?

    Thanks @Gambit
  13. Save to USB Switch?

    I've looked through the offline menu but don't see where i can save the logging information to the USB. Is there not a way to use a word switch with an internal device to trigger the save to USB function?
  14. Save to USB Switch?

    I have data logging set up in my GT27 and I can get it to save to the USB (as long as the USB in inserted obviously). I was wondering though if you can save all the log files to the USB by inserting a type of switch? I've been playing with it but been struggling. Any help would be appreciated.   Thanks!
  15. GX Works 2 & 3 Comment Search

    In GX Developer there is an option to search comments which is fairly user friendly. Is there the same thing in GX Works 2 & 3 that i cannot find? You can search comments in the program in; FIND/REPLACE, STRING, FIND STRING, Then enter comment you are searching. ONly problem with this is that once you find the first comment in stays on that device. It does not continue to look for the comment you are trying to search. Am i doing something wrong or is GX works 2 & 3 just gone backwards with this old function?
