• When the GOT is CPU-connected to a PLC and a general purpose PC is used as a
program edit tool for the PLC, the 2-port interface function of the GOT can be used.
(In the case of connection using a communication unit of QnA Series or Q Series, the 2-port
interface function can be used when the setting of the GOT is for CPU connection.)
When using the GOT and peripheral devices dedicated to sequence program edit (such as
FX-20P and A6GPP that performs RS-422 communication) for one PLC, connect the GOT
to an extension communication board or extension communication adapter of FX Series, a
computer link unit of A Series or a communication unit of QnA Series or Q Series.
(The FX-2PIF type 2-port interface is not compatible with the PLCs of Q Series and QnA
Series or with PLCs or microcomputer boards manufactured by other companies.)
When connected to a PLC or microcomputer board manufactured by other companies, the
2-port interface function of the GOT cannot be used.
