This manual explains the system configuration, specifications, screen structure, and
operating method of monitoring software GT SoftGOT (hereinafter abbreviated as GT
SoftGOT).
GT SoftGOT is used to display lamps, data, and messages on personal computers
and panel controllers.
POINT
Refer to the GT Works Version 5/GT Designer Version 5 Operating Manual (Start
up Manual) for how to install and start up GT SoftGOT.
1.1 Features
(1) The monitor screen data used in the GOT-A900 Series can be
used without changes.
Since GT SoftGOT uses the monitor screen data created with GT Designer
without any modifications, it is possible to use the monitor screen data used in
the GOT-A900 Series without any modifications.
GT SoftGOT uses the same screens and operations as GOT. Therefore, there
will be no discomfort or confusion for the operators and maintenance personnel.
There is no need for conversion.
The monitor screen data is compatible.
GOT
GT SoftGOT
(2) Support for various screen sizes
GT SoftGOT supports XGA (1024 x 768 dots, equivalent to type 15) and SXGA
(1280 x 1024 dots, equivalent to type 18); it is thus possible to design screens in
greater detail than with conventional software. In addition, it is possible to use the
same screen sizes as A97*GOT (640 x 480 dots, equivalent to type 10) and
A985GOT (800 x 600 dots, equivalent to type 12); the screen size can be
selected according to the application.

MELSECNET/10, MELSECNET/H or Ethernet network can be accessed.
(The CPUs that can be accessed on the Ethernet network are the QCPU (Q
mode) and QnACPU only.)
POINT
To monitor the other network, the routing parameters of the MELSECNET/10 board
or MELSECNET/H board utility must be set.
For the setting of the routing parameters, refer to the MELSECNET/10 Interface
Board User's Manual or MELSECNET/H Interface Board User's Manual.

POINT
If the resolution of the personal computer used is the same as that of GT
SoftGOT, it is recommended to hide the frame and menu part using the full screen
mode function (refer to Section 6.7).
If the full screen mode function is not used, the top/bottom and left/right parts of
the display will be off screen slightly depending on the frame and menu part.
The resolution of the monitor data created in GT Designer and the resolution of
GT SoftGOT must be the same.
If they are different, the screen will be displayed in the following manner:
1) If the resolution of the monitor data is higher than the resolution of GT SoftGOT
Graphics that are off-screen will not be displayed.
2) If the resolution of the monitor data is lower than the resolution of GT SoftGOT
The resolution of GT SoftGOT has the priority in the moving range of window
screens, position of messages displayed in the alarm flow function, and display
of the superimposed window.
Graphics not defined within the resolution set in the monitor data are not
refreshed. (Out-of-date graphics may remain in the parts outside the area
defined within the resolution.) This can be prevented in the following way:
(a) When using monitor data created with resolutions of 640 x 400 dots or 320
x 240 dots in GT SoftGOT, change the GOT type (resolution) of the monitor
data created in GT Designer to the resolution used in GT SoftGOT.
(b) Use the mouse to change the screen size of GT SoftGOT to the size of the
monitor data created in GT Designer.

3.3 Restrictions on and Instructions for use of GT SoftGOT
3.3.1 Restrictions on and instructions for GT SoftGOT
(1) Restriction on starting up GT SoftGOT
More than one GT SoftGOT cannot be started up on one personal computer.
(2) Monitor data that may be monitored
If you use on GT SoftGOT the monitor data of GT Designer earlier or the
monitor data converted with GT Converter, proper operation may not be
performed.
The monitor data created with GT Designer earlier or the monitor data
converted with GT Converter should be read once on GT Designer later and
saved.
(3) About object functions
If you perform a memory card save with the alarm history function or the recipe
function, data is saved on the hard disk.
Also, data can not be output directly to the printer using the report function, hard
copy function, etc.
A print image (TXT/CSV/BMP format file) is saved to the personal computer's
hard disk, so output each file to the printer separately.
The saving folder will vary according to the GOT type setting in the option
settings, so take care.
Each bit of data is stored in the folder listed below on the personal computer's
hard disk.
Melsec
SoftGOT
MemCard
Alarmhst...... Alarm history function data is stored.
Hardcopy..... Hard copy function data is stored.
Recipe......... Recipe function data is stored.
Report..........Report function data is stored.
With the recipe function, if there is a recipe file present in the PC card, a new
recipe file will not be created as with the actual GOT.
Because of that, if there is a recipe file in the MemCard or Recipe folder that
differs from the read monitor data's recipe function settings, reading data from or
writing data to the recipe file may not operate normally.
In these cases, delete the recipe files in the MemCard or Recipe folder before
reading the monitor data.
3-4
3-4
3 SPECIFICATIONS
MELSOFT
A file saved as a printing image will not be deleted even if GT SoftGOT is
exited. Because of that, files saved as printing images will accumulate on the
personal computer's hard disk, and the GT SoftGOT may not operate due to a
lack of available open space on the hard disk.
If the printing trigger is frequently set to ON and monitor data is used, check
that there is enough available open space on the personal computer's hard
disk, and delete printing files if necessary.
If Wordpad or Memopad were used to open saved printing image files (TXT
files), the display of the character spacing may be slightly out of line. If the
character spacing is out of line, adjust the character font or font size.
When setting the odd point of 16-bit data as the first device with the recipe
function at the time of FXCPU connection, use the device of CN199 or earlier.
3.3.2 Restrictions on and instructions for PLC CPU connection

5.2 How to Use the License Key/License Key FD
When using GT SoftGOT, you must always use the following license key/license key
FD to make the license right of GT SoftGOT recognized.
• DOS/V personal computer : License key (A9GTSOFT-LKEY-P)
• PC CPU module
: License key FD (SW5D5F-SGLKEY-E)
How to use the license key/license key FD will be described.
(1) When using GT SoftGOT on DOS/V personal computer
When using GT SoftGOT on the DOS/V personal computer, always attach the
license key (A9GTSOFT-LKEY-P) to the DOS/V personal computer.
If monitoring with GT SoftGOT is performed without attaching the license key to
the personal computer, GT SoftGOT will automatically be terminated after
approximately 10 minutes.
Moreover, if the system driver has not been installed on the DOS/V personal
computer, GT SoftGOT does not recognize that the license key is attached.
Therefore, make sure to install the system driver as well.
Refer to the GT Works Version5/GT Designer Version5 Operating Manual (Start
up Manual) for how to install the system driver.
Attach the license key in the following manner:
1) Attach the license key to the parallel port
(Centro/printer connector) of the DOS/V personal
computer.
2)
1)
2) Connect the printer cable to the license key when
a printer is used.
