  1. 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?
  2. I'm modifying an STL program I wrote some years ago. I need to split an STL sequence (to let the first part restart while the second part runs on). The original POU runs from STL S100 to STL S138 in steps of 2 and the STL sequence ends in a RETSTL instruction. The modified program ends at STL S134 with a RETSTL instruction followed by the new sequence which runs from STL S140 to STL S146 and ends with another RETSTL. This modification causes the PLC to fault with error code 33E7 - Program structure error. Can anyone explain what's causing the error and suggest a fix or workaround? Many thanks.
  3. Hello all. First time post in this forum. I am hoping someone here can offer some advice or a solution to a problem I am having. I have a Modbus water meter from chinese that connected to my FX5U with ADPRW Instruction, but i have a problem. The cumulative flow from water meter is a 4-byte hexadecimal number, with the high bit first and the low bit last. I want the output from the PLC is real number FLOAT. can someone in this forum help me to combine 2 different WORD and create a single FLOAT. Here I Attached document from water meter.   Thank you, Modbus协议英文Modbus water meter communication protocol.pdf
  4. GX Works 3 Remote IO setup

    Hello. I am told that the use of a remotehead IO-module demands that a separate project is necessary. Is this true? I am using a R32EN cpu.   EDIT: Just received word that it's because it's necessary for hotswap. Cheers // RI
  5. Change PLC model in GX Works 3

    Hello. The project I'm in have decided to switch cpu-model from R04ENCPU to R32. It does not seem possible to change it in the module config / hardware view. I try to delete the old CPU, but cpu module cannot be deleted... Anybody know?
  6. I simply want to create a function that measures how long the machine has been running/functioning. I see the option to create the OUT T function, but that allows me at max to count up to 9999. Do I have to create some registers to continuously store this data?  Can I not just have it count up freely?  I have a couple other functions I need to run off of this further on, but this is the foremost issue. Any ideas? Thanks so much in advance.
  7. 1ms TON and TOF GX Works 3 FX5U

    Hi everyone I'm new to FX5U, 'cause I previously used Q-series PLC. So, is there any possibility to make on delay timer with 1ms PT?
  8. Hello everyone! Is there possibility to read words e.g. Name of alarm from the csv file or another file and save it in the PLC memory for further processing? It would be the best if the solution will matches to FX5 and IQ-R/F but it can be also for any of them. Thanks for help :)
