  1. Hi all. I am new to Autonics and Mitsubishi. I am trying to read and write the data of an Autonics TK series temperature controller using RS-485 with QJ71C24N-R4 coupled with Q00UCPU. I have the hardware setup as attached images. Software setup are as follows:  TK4 Settings: Communication address: 01-99 Communication speed: 38400bps Communication parity bit: none Communication stop bit: 2 Communication Response waiting time: 20 Communication write: Enable Mitsubishi Intelligent Function Module: CH2: Operating: Independent Data Bits: 8 Parity Bit: None Even/Odd parity: Odd Stop bit: 2 Sum Check code: None Online Change: Enable Setting Modifications: Enable Communication Rate Settings: 38400bps Communication Protocol Settings: Predefined protocol Task to be carried out: 1. Read SV 2. Read PV 3. Write SV I have the address for the modules but I am not sure how to communicate or the program which allows to reading/writing. I had tried to follow the attached PDF but i cant key in the first line as there is a bit with "G450" which has an error stating "the device No. is over usable range" and  "An unusable device has be designated". I hope someone here could guide me in writing the program, or any reference for me to follow.  TK-Q02H_RS485_EN_Technical_support_180823_W.pdf
  2. Hi! We have a GOT2000 HMI with a Q06UDVCPU system. During an investigation, I found that the address on the HMI (for example D10120) and the address in the PLC (D10020) are different. The value is the same, it appeared instantly during monitoring, but when I searched for it, didn't find it (I couldn't find the D10120 in GxWorks2, and couldn't find D10020 in GtDesigner3). The HMI's address is 100 higher. I never saw anything like that. Where is this difference can be set? Knowing this, I can navigate in the program..it's just annoying.
  3. How can i limit MRJ4 servo load?

    Hello, I am beginner at servo and its driver. i am using MRJ4A driver and HG SR102 servo motor. i want to make my servo stop or alarm when the load is over the maximum load that i set by my self. what parameter should i set to limiting servo load even if the servo motor strength enough to lift the load.?  
  4. Until recently, I haven't had to connect to a piece of hardware using a serial connection in quite sometime. Well, that all changed yesterday when I needed to connect to a Watlow F4T Controller. I dug around in the bottle drawer of my desk and pulled at not one, but two USB-Serial Converters that I saved for just such an occasion! My old ones worked on everything from Allen Bradley SLCs, to Schneider Drives. Unfortunately, neither appear to work in a Windows 10 environment. Searching the internet, I was not able to find any drivers for these old converters, but did find some posts in another forum stating that Microsoft changed how it manages its USB ports from Win 7 to Win 10. Thanks Microsoft! Sorry, I will cut this rant short and just ask my question. Can anyone recommend a USB-Serial Converter that works in a Windows 10/11 environment?  Respectfully, Shane 
  5. Simulation of FX5 in GX Works3.

    Hello gentlemen. I am working in a company that makes SCADA software, and needed to do reading/writing tests on MitsubishiPLC's, In this case I needed to do tests on FX2, FX3 and FX5. I saw that Mitsubishi makes available the GXWorks 3 software that is possible to do simulations of FX5 and FX5u in it, but I can't connect in any way to the PLC being simulated on the company network. I put the correct IP in the ModuleParameter\EthernetPort configurations, I write a simple read/write program in ladder, and I use Star Simulation, but when I try to ping the PLC, I can't find it, much less talk to it via VisualStudio . How can I connect this PLC that is being simulated in GX Works3 in an external program?
  6. serial input string

    Hi  I'm quite new to plc but very new to mitsubishi.   I have an input string eg G+002.7 which represents a weight. I wish to take in the input string then move/convert to int omitting first char,   On other plc's i have been able to use a modifier like d200[2] then the no of chars. How do i achieve this in gx works3   Any feedback gratefully recieved   Paul  
  7. Alarms Acknowledge

    Hello experts, I have a problem with Mitsubishi, specifically about alarms and their acknowledge. Basically I would like to follow Siemens logic, i.e. when I have an alarm, I acquire it and only after this step can I reset it, so every time I have an alarm and want to reset it I have to acquire it first, but this means that every time I reset it and for some reason the alarm comes back to me, its acknowoledge has to come back working.  I hope I have made myself clear.  Does anyone know if I need to set something on GT Designer3 or do I have to adapt to Mitsubishi logic and do some programming on GX Works3? Thank you very much

  9. GX Works3 Projectlib Locked

    Hello, I have a problem that I need to solve in a PLC program has it's projectlib locked.  I work for a company that contracted a PLC programmer before my time to program their new version of their control cabinets. The company did not write any specific contract with the contractor and just relied on his work. The guy later delevered a buggy software that is kind of functional (the bugs came up at the commissioning after the guy was paid and now he refuses to help or to provide more consultations). I have as a task to freshen this up and make it work without bugs, the problem is that the Projectlib is locked and I cannot access the source code.  The only thing that I can changes that I can make to the code is to put some logical circuits between the I/O of the already existing function blocks, which solved some problems, but not all and it keeps one of the most important ones as well. Anyways, that's my story, so now my question is, is there and possible way of unlocking the projectlib? Any feedback would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advace!

  11. Printinting from Mitsubishi HMI

    Hello everyone I have Mitsubishi HMI GS2110 WTBD- N. It is connected with FX5U with Ethernet protocol. I want to run a printer directly from HMI with RS 232 without using RS232 adapter card. Can someone please help me what to do and how to do. Regards
  12. I'm trying to understand the basics of using a serial to ethernet converter such as this Comtrol DM-EIP-2101, with Studio5000 code. Basically I have a weighing machine that only outputs data via RS-232 and I need to send that data to a PC that will process it through a Studio5000 program and have the data displayed on an HMI using FTview SE. Is it as simple as just connecting the serial and ethernet to the converter and it does all the work? Obviously checking ip addresses and firmware will need to be verified. The main thing I am unsure of is the process of passing the individual data packets from the machine to the Logix code on the PC,  things like what the weight of the item was, was it over weight or under, etc....  Would there be an AOI or tags built into the software for a machine like this Checkweigher? I've worked with much smaller items like Cognex Dataman cameras and I know you can just use their AOI that allows you to simply call a tag if you want to display information like if a scanned barcode was correct or whatever. If anyone has done something similar I'd appreciate any guidance. It can be difficult getting the information from the manufactures so I'm looking for answers anywhere I can. EDIT: I guess I should also clarify that only using one or the other (serial or E/IP) is not an option. It will be a serial connection from the Weighing machine to the converter and then Ethernet to the PC.
  13. Dear forum, I am facing a trouble at the moment and hoping somebody can assist. I have one HMI software, GT Designer 3, HMI: GS2107 and/or GT2107, the software works so far so fine. The software is used on several products, I dont want to maintain two or even more software versions. Two serial devices are connect: 1x MODBUS RS-485 1x MODBUS RS-232. The data transfer is done via DDT, no direct calls. The DDT transfer the MODBUS address to the internal GD-Registers. The GD-Registers are used within the HMI. My trouble is that in some cases, there is no RS-232 device connected. This creates time outs, slows down the HMI and its just not nice looking (I have a warning implemented "WARNING NO CONNECTION TO SERIAL DEVICE RS-232". Is there a way, that I can select (retained) that the RS-232 is connected / or not? Once the software is configured "NO RS-232 CONNECTED" I can handle the rest of the software.   Anybody an idea how to do this? Many thanks.
  14. is there is a function built in to convert chars like "XYZ.." to hex and vice versa ?? I am new to the iQ-R series and trying to figure it out, the GX-Works version that I am using is 1.038Q any help would be appreciated

  16. QD77GF Error D304

    Hi. I am using PLC Q06UDV wit QD77GF to operate 11 servos, it is my first time using QD77GF and CC-Link IE Field. I've done the parameter setting. but the qd77gf error lamp started to blinking. i try to check it in cc link ie field diagnostic and didn't find anything except the error lamp blinking in monitor view. then i checked system diagnostic , no error showing up but, only historical error when i started the power of plc. it show D304 error.  in manual book the solution are lengthen the operation cycle qd77gf, check the cable, and shorten plc scan time. where can i find this setting sir?  
  17. weight batching system

    Hello everyone, i am making a weight batching system , my system consists of 9 tanks each tank have a specific raw material , the user should be able to add a formula through scada system so he will be able to specify each weight of each ingredient to add to the formula. i have managed a connection between my weight indicator (pt650d) and my plc (fx3g) through fx3g232bd module (RS232 communication) , the weight indicator send data in ASCII to plc that we can show on the scada system .  so how can i change the ASCII numbers that come from the weight indicator to Decimal number without changing the value so i can control a barrel that will add raw material from the tank to the scale untill it reaches what the user specify in the scada ??   
  18. SLMP Failures

I have the Ethernet card configured and validated. I am able to ping both devices and get a response on the network. However, I received an SLMP failure in Dataman and there's no communication between my camera and the controller.  Please see the attached photos to view how I have the camera and PLC configured.
  19. G9SP Configurator

    I am at a client site that has a line with multiple Omron G9SP-N20S safety controllers installed and I need to make a modification to the system.  I tried to install the Omron Configurator and it asks for a serial number, and will not install without one.  Omron said that it is on the CD that ships with the unit, but the equipment manufacturer did not supply any of the CDs.  The only Omron solution is to order a replacement CD, that will take 5 days, which is 5 days too long as there is a hard stop in 2 days.  I have tried entering numbers found on the controller, with no success.  Does anyone have a better way, special contacts at Omron, to et it faster?

  21. PLC Reset?

    Hi guys, I always wondering, what is reset when reset button is click? Does the setting from address D from HMI will be lost? Does internal memory of PLC is reset? Anything thats not reset? Or just reset sequence? Thanks.
  22. Hi, I'm currently working as an intern, and my job is to transfer the program from a schneider twido twdlmda20rt to a mitsubishi fx5u-32mr/es. The thing is, i've been in trouble trying to understand and "translate" from one plc language to another certain things, like the %MW, %SW and blocks, so if any of You could give me some advisory I'd bee fully thankful (I can't upload all the pics, so theres's the link to the folder) https://inacapmailcl-my.sharepoint.com/personal/nicolas_gonzalez206_inacapmail_cl/_layouts/15/onedrive.aspx?id=%2Fpersonal%2Fnicolas%5Fgonzalez206%5Finacapmail%5Fcl%2FDocuments%2Fscript
  23. Hi everyone,  I am new to Mitsubishi PLC. I am trying to see from where Run or speed commands goes to Servo. I have MELSEC FX2M-32MT with FX2N-1PG cards for the Servo and I am using GX Developer 8.91v  Also, I would like to mention that initially I found out that BATT V light was lit so here what I didi. >I replaced the battery within 20 second while powered ON. Before changing the battery I took upload of the program successfully.  >I have cleared PLC memory and re downloaded the program.  > Checked Memory addresses M8005 8006 both are Low.  Now, when I am trying to run  my machine it is not giving output to two Servos while a conveyor operates when started from the HMI so it means program is inside PLC, right ? Program is attached if someone wants to have a look.  labeling mc 300322.rar
  24. Here is a post that we recently completed on the Automation Direct USB to RS485 Adapter.  The USB-485M is a 2-wire USB to RS-485 serial communication adapter for RS485 use. It does not require an external power supply or complicated configuration. It has a Type A (plug) USB connector for the computer side and a universal female RJ45/RJ12 modular connector. This will accept RJ12 and RJ45 plugs.  The USB-485M supports multiple baud rates and is USB V2.0 Compliant. Read the rest of the post...

  25. I am trying to get a G9SP taking over serial to a NX1P2 using a NX1W-CIF01.  I have the details in Manual P545-E1 and it uses a example file which i am unable to locate OMRON_G9SP_SERI232_LD_EV100.SMC I have got the coms working with a CP1L using the example in Manual Z922-E1.  I was wondering if anyone has the example file or a working example they can share for Sysmac Studio. The serial comms will take a little bit to get going but it is the code for the checksum for the sending data that i would rather not have to translate from CX Programer fort he CP1L to Sysmac Studio......
