  1. GX Works ARRAY usage

    Hi ALL! Do not compile project on GX Works: Type mismatch? But type is match!!! Equivalent project on Delta ISPSoft compile OK: What wrong?
  2. Hello everybody, i have some uncertainties going through my head. i am fairly new in PLC word, graduated last year, last 12 month i did project on Siemens PLCs, but now i have to expand my view with Mitsubishi. 1. i am working on project with several conveyors. for each conveyor type i have FB fairly similar to my FB in siemens. For all conveyor i am using same sdt containing 32 bits. So a have array[0..20]  of said sdt. But in fb i was not able to copy item from array, through input var containing index of that item to vocal variable, which i wanted to write back to the array at the end of fb. I tried different approach ->  using item from array *** input/output.  When monitoring item from array i can see, that variables i change in got2000 panel are in fact changing. But when i monitor fb itself, those same variables are not changing. i reworked this fb several times, for example when i found out that FB variables FB FXcpu cannot be set as retain so i would like to use it and i see no other way than make this fb work. :D 2. Is there possibility to us FB in another FB? I remember that i read some restriction about this, but now, i cannot find it. Thank you everybody for your responses    
  3. Convert GOT2000 to GOT1000

    Hi everyone, Does anyone know how to convert programing data from GOT2000 to GOT1000. Or how to copy device from GOT2000 to GOT1000. Thank you very much.
  4. Hello All,   Semi-noob here with Mitsubishi PLCs. I'm starting a project in which we are upgrading an existing A Series PLC with the Q.  Is there a datasheet somewhere that lists compatible software within Mitsubishi's lineup? I had no luck in searching their site.   Also, (in the same project) the existing network uses DeviceNet. I have the Q series compatible card for that - but within what software does one configure the network?   Thank you.
  5. Hi all  I need help with communication between Mitsubishi L06CPU-P with Siemens S7-1500 by Modbus TCP. It's necessary to send data from L06CPU to S7-1500, but I don't know anything about mitsubishi and gx works2.  Picked up some pics how I did it, but I didn't verified how it works. Can anybody help me with this?   edited: I also found LQnUDEModbusTCP_GW2_with_FC_V120 library, but how it works I dont know
  6. Hello, I'm trying to use Mitsubishi GX Works 3 version 1 for the first time and get a 'memory is insufficient' error window when I try to open/start a new project or if I try to open a PLC project a co-worker made. I am using Windows 10/64-bit, company we purchased the software from says they are using it on windows 10 without issue. I get the error with no other programs running, have 6 GB RAM, and have 90% hard drive space available. I have monitored Task Manager while opening a file, RAM usage seems fine, and have tried opening with "Run as storminess".  I have tried uninstalling the program using the window "uninstall or change a program" - is the a different way to uninstall this program that will wipe it more completely? The install CD has Disk1, Disk2, Disk3(DocFX) sub folder , Support folders - I ran the .exe file from all 3. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am able to open an HMI project in GT works 3 without issue. I attached a screen shot of the error. Thanks so much!!
  7. Hi All, Have recently embarked on a project that has required me to change over to GX Works 3 in order to link an IQ-R120PCPU to a Citect 2018 SCADA package . In days gone by under IEC Developer and GX Works 2 it was quite easy to establish communications between the programming package running in simulation mode and a running Citect system using the MXCOMP driver via MX Components to perform offline testing. Can't seem to find a way to get it to work under GX Works 3 though, has anyone tried a similar setup Simulated logic in GX Works 3 is running fine and can modify the IO from inside MX Components "PLC Monitor Utility" program so there is no issues there, just cant get Citect to communicate. MX Component comm's has also been proven reading/writing variable to an excel sheet with GX Works 3 in simulation mode also. Attached are the files for getting GX Works 2 up and communicating to Citect 2018 via the same method i am trying to get working in GX Works 3 in case anyone ever needs to use that method. Any help would be appreciated.     GXWORKS 2 & CITECT
  8. Dear all, I am trying to convert project from GX Works2 ( FX3U) to new GX Works3 (FX5U). Problem is that I am using disabled Compile conditions2 in GX Works2. I have not found this option in GX Works3. Problem is when I convert projects soo program behave totally different.... Is there any solution for this????   BR Jan
  9. Password for GX3 Files

    Hello We use to protect our files from GT Designer3 with a username and password. So, I can only open the project if I know the user and password. Very handy. I found that function not in GX Works 3. The field "User management" in "project" menu is disabled (grey). So, I surely miss something.  Can somebody help? The manual only tells about Block and CPU security.  Thanks!  

    Hello i have some problem, i am noobs with the mitshubishi plc, i need convert the output value from a ctud to a DWORD, i use word_to_dword to convert, but when i compile it have a errror. Type mismatch on output variable, i add screenshot.
  11. Hello everyone, As the title suggests I am trying to display on a GOT1000 the real time frequency that the inverter is running at. I have attached my CC-Link settings and the associated programming as well. I tried using the example program from Mitsubishi but I got lost. From my understanding I should be seeing the output frequency in W3C4 however, I am not receiving any data. Any help would be appreciated. 
  12. GT Designer 3: Label import error

    Hello. When trying to import the labels from GX3, i keep getting an error saying the project cannot be opened. Has anyone encountered this error? Cheers
  13. Hi Guys   I am trying to change a profibus module on a Q02CPU from a QJ71PB92D to a QJ71PB92V, but when I try to download I keep getting the error Flash ROM writing could not execute rightly.   Now I can download and upload code thus I think the Cable and PLC power OFF is a null. How would I do this? I am using GX Works 2, as I do not have GX Configurator AD.   Kind Regards Morne
  14. GX Works3 problem

      Hi Guys, Can you help me out with this question The servo motor connected to axis-1 rotates in the forward direction when the M1 button is pressed, and in the reverse direction when the M2 button is pressed. When two buttons are pressed at the same time, the engine stops after 5 seconds. Write the program that performs this process with GX Works3. 
  15. Not working TON function block

    Hi all, I have an strange problem in my FX2 PLC. It`s about an program created in FBD language, in the GX works2 software. (FX2-32MR-ES) I have an regulair TON block, created an input signal and an PT value. But when the PT value is larger then 3276 seconds, the TON timer will not run. See attachments.... An PT value of 3276 s (T#54m36s) and lower, then the TON timer runs, and you can see the ET value increase. An PT value of 3277 s (T#54m37s) and higher, then the timer will not run, and the ET value remains "0". Have searched in the PLC parameter settings if there is some limitation, but can`t find something like this. Does anyone knows what i`am doing wrong?                
  16. Hello, I'm trying to execute the loopback test on the RS-422 built-in port of GX3GE-40M. I connected the TxD pins to RxD pins (+ to +, - to - ). I'm trying to use the function rs2 (later the plc should communicate with a bar code reader). I have tryed all possible connections, to see if the PLC can read the signal as well as transmit it. It manages to transmit the signal, but I cannot get it to read it. Could someone help me troubleshoot if the problem is in the program portion?  I'm working in GX Works2 Thanks for any and all help test_plk.gxw
  17. Hello, I have a project in which a bar code sensor and PLC need to communicate. The sensor is a Sick CLP510-2000 and uses RS-232, PLC is FX3GE-40M and does not have any extra moduls, such as the FX3G-232-BD. I was hoping the comunicatiom would be possible trough the minidin8 cable, until I got to GX Works2. It looks like I need the RS or RS2 function, but in help it says it only works with the extra moduls. Does anybody know, how I could make a function, like RS or RS2, or use one of them without the modul? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer :)
  18. GX works 3 fx5 4ad help

    Hi all, I'm trying to set up the analog on channel 1 of the fx5-4ad module. I've set my parameters but I'm wondering if anyone has an example of the ladder side in GX works 3. I'm looking to read the signal in an hmi. Thanks 
  19. Working with Strings

    Hi so i am learning to work with mitsubishi GX Works2 i am using the simulator, and the help anyway i was testing with strings and when i convert a unsigned word or dword to string it converts it as HEX values and also fill the whole thing with 0's can anyone help me or point me in the right direction with a manual, i do know my way around on AB and siemens but its harder to find help for mitsubishi, on the help for WORD_TO_STR, it says it should be converting to decimal but it isnt, is this a weird bug with the simulator?    
  20. Hi guys, Is it possible to convert integers to/from strings in scripts in GT Designer3? I don't want to perform the conversion in the PLC. Thanks,
  21. Hi! I have a question about programming. I want to place an input (X01) on the left vertical line, to allow the rest of the program running by an external switch. How can I place an input like that? I work on Gx works2 and using an Fx3g Plc (I used it once, but i can't find that program.)
  22. Gx Works2 Q68DAIN Setup

    Hi there, Wondering if anyone can help me. I'm new to Mitsubishi and GX Works2 and I'm trying to get a Q68DAIN Analogue Output card working. Does anyone have an example I could look at? I'm trying to use the Intelligent Function Module but not having much luck.
  23. I am working on  calculating a checksum value for a command that is to be sent from an Allen-Bradley CompactLogix PLC to a Mass flow controller. An example of a command is the following: "@@@022SX!20.00;CHECKSUM".  1. The checksum is the sum of every characters' ASCII code value (starting from character 3).  2.Then this sum (which would be in decimal format) has to be converted to HexaDecimal 3. Finally, the last two characters of the result have to be extracted and that would be the value of the checksum.  (For Ex: the value of every individual characters' ASCII code (starting from point 3) of the above command is 715. in HexaDecimal, 715 = 2CB. So , the value of the checksum for this command would be 2CB) I got to the point where i found the sum of ASCII code. Any idea on how to convert that to  a HexaDecimal and then convert that HexaDecimal to a string so that I could concatenate it to the command string??   
  24. Wonderware InTouch V10.1.301

    Do anyone know if you can use one button to view or reference a page window in two separate project applications with two different IP addresses in Wonderware InTouch? Do you need a script to do so? Do Wonderware allow two projects to open one window?
  25. Hello, From modbus, Im reading a HEX variable in the data register D0, as it is a 32 bit variable, the second part is saved in D1, then I get: D0: BE62 D1: 31D7 The value that I should obtain in float is -0.2208932 as I obtained setting  BE6231D7 in online Hex to float converter and this agree with what I'm reading on the flowmeter.  The problem is that when I try to change the data type from channel to Real on CX programmer I obtain a different value, also the registers are not sort in the proper way, instead they are sort inversely 31D7BE62, and obviusly the obtained value is completely different. Also instead of Hex, I want to display the decimal, or floating value, is there a way to do this? I'll attach some captures.
