  1. Archestra IDE mimic page Editing

    Hi, I appreciate this is forum is more PLC based but if anyone could assist me with a SCADA issue. Namely Archestra IDE it would be appreciated.    Problem: I need to delete two pumps off of a mimic that is being governed by Archestra IDE. The galaxy is being hosted from a server PC.    My question is… If i make a Edit to the runtime program do i need to reboot the program on the server PC or does it automatically update? Same question with the slave HMI’s. Do i need to go around rebooting them after the change or do they update like an online edit? Also do i need to make any changes to the application server or historian that is running on the PC? Thanks in advance. 
  2. Gx Configurator Dp and creating new Dp2 file

    Thanks for your help with this! I’m getting there. Couple more questions, how do you find out what the profibus master module node address is without the configurator file to hand?    Also i think my plc requires the profibus to be in mode E extended mode. How do i select this on/off.    thanks
  3. Gx Configurator Dp and creating new Dp2 file

    Ok thanks, i am useing gx-configurator dp 7.13 and have built a network on the program. I am just hesitant to download the new file to the PLC. Is there anyway of verifying what is currently in the profibus card to what i have just built? Also under "master settings" it asks for starting IO number, i'm guessing this is referring to which slot the profibus card is located in the rack?   Any help appreciated.
  4. Hi all, i need to create a new dp2 file for a profibus network on a Mitsubishi Q series PLC. I have the PLC program (gx iec developer) and i have all the individual Details of each node.    I have created a new configurator file and built all the nodes with their corresponding GSD files but i’m not sure how to use the IO mapper to map send/receive bits correctly.    Can anyone help?
