(1) When using the multiple CPU system
When using the GOT to monitor the multiple CPU system of other stations, select [MELSEC-Q(Multi)/Q-Motion]
or [MELSEC-QnU, Q17nD/M/NC/DR, CRnD-700] for the type, regardless of the host PLC CPU type (QCPU,
QnACPU, ACPU). When other models are selected, the setting of the CPU No. becomes unavailable.
(2) Precautions for changing model
(a) When devices that cannot be converted are included.
When setting of [Manufacturer] or [Controller Type] is changed, GT Designer3 displays the device that
cannot be converted (no corresponding device type, or excessive setting ranges as [??]. In this case, set
the device again.
(b) When the changed Manufacturer or Controller Type does not correspond to the network.
The network will be set to the host station.
(c) When the Manufacturer or Controller Type is changed to [None]
The GT Designer3 displays the device of the changed channel No. as [??]. In this case, set the device
Since the channel No. is retained, the objects can be reused in other channel No. in a batch by using the
[Device Bach Edit], [CH No. Batch Edit] or [Device List].
Set the communication unit attached to the extension interface of the GOT.
Set the CH No. according to the intended purpose.
The number of channels differs depending on the GOT to be used.
