GOT-F900 SERIES (CONNECTION)
Caution on Use of Peripheral Equipment
When connecting a personal computer to the GOT in order to transfer screen data or sequence program
or to monitor the personal computer, observe the following cautions on use.
Caution when connecting the GOT and PLC via RS-232C port
(Only in case of the F920GOT-K, F930GOT, F930GOT-K, or F940GOT)
If the GOT-F900 (which is equipped with one RS-422 port and one RS-232C port) has already been set
to connect with the PLC using the RS-232C port, the data transfer screen is not displayed automatically
even when a personal computer is connected to the RS-232C port instead of the PLC (due to the RS-
232C port priority).
To eliminate the inconvenience described below, it is recommended to use the GOT-F900 with two RS-
232C ports. (Available only in certain models)
The connected equipment is changed.
Follow the procedures below and changeover the screen manually from SELECT MODE to DATA
TRANSFER in order to transfer screen data.
1) While pressing and holding the upper left corner of the screen, turn on the power. Keep
holding for a while.
2) The "LANGUAGE" screen appears. Press "END".
3) The "SET-UP MODE" screen appears. Press "END"
4) The "SELECT MODE" screen appears. Press "OTHER MODE".
5) The "OTHER MODE" screen appears. Press "DATA TRANSFER".
6) Transfer screen data.
RS-232C port function priority
The setting for the function with higher priority is confirmed first. If the function has been set, the one
with lower priority is not executed.
For example, if a connected equipment (PLC) or bar code reader is set valid, screen data transfer or
sequence program transfer and monitor is not enabled because those functions have lower priority as
shown in the table.
