Essential Safety Precautions
This manual includes procedures that must be followed to operate the GP correctly
and safely. Be sure to read this manual and any related materials thoroughly to
understand the correct operation and functions of this unit.
Icon Meaning
To allow you to use the GP correctly, throughout this manual, the following icons
are provided next to operations requiring special attention. The operations described with these icons contain essential safety information. The following is an
example of these icons and their meanings:
Warning
Caution
Indicates situations where severe bodily
injury, death or major equipment damage
can occur.
Indicates situations where slight bodily
injury or machine damage can occur.
WARNINGS
• Confirm that the GP's Power Cord is not plugged in to the
main power when connecting the GP's power terminals.
• Whenever changing the Backlight, to prevent electric
shocks or burns, be sure to unplug the GP's powercord
and use protective gloves.
• The GP contains high voltage parts and electric shocks
can occur when disassembling the unit. Do not disassemble the GP.
• Do not use power beyond the GP's specified voltage range.
If you do, it may cause a fire or an electric shock.
• Do not use the GP in an environment where flammable
gas is present. It may cause explosion.
• Do not use touch panel keys in life-related or important
disaster prevention situations. Use separate hardware
switches for such keys.
• Please design your system so that the machine will not
malfunction by a communication fault between the GP
and its host controller. If not, there could be a danger of
injuring a person or damaging materials.
GP-270 Series User's Manual

Preface
CAUTIONS
• The GP uses a lithium battery for backing up its internal
clock data. If the battery is incorrectly replaced, it may
explode. To avoid this danger, please consult with your
local GP distributorwhen the battery needs replacement.
• Do not strike the GP's touch panel with a hard or heavy
object, or press on the touch panel too strongly since it
may damage the display.
• Do not install the GP where the temperature will exceed
its specified range.
• Be sure that water, liquids or metal particles do not enter the
GP, since it may cause a malfunction or a short circuit.
• Do not store or use the GP where powerful shocks or
vibration are likely to occur.
• Do not store or use the GP where chemicals and acids
are present in the air.
• Do not use paint thinner or organic solvents to clean the
plastic case or display panel.
• Be sure to back up your GP's screen data regulary.
Concerning the GP's Display
• The following LCD characteristics are normal and are not evidence
of a defect.
1) Contouring, i.e. when some parts of the screen are brighter
than others, may occur, creating a wavelike pattern.
2) Minute grid-points (dark/ light).
3) Shadows (At the top of the LCD).
4) Display colors appear to have changed.
• Preventing Afterimages:
Set the unit to "Stand-by Mode", which will turn the
GP's display OFF after a period of non-use.
Do not display any single screen for an extended period of time. Change the screen display periodically.

Preface
UL/cUL Application Notes
The GP270-LG31-24V and GP270-SC31-24V are cUL 1950 (+ D3) recognized
products. Please pay special attention to the following instructions when applying
for UL approval for machinery which includes one of these GP units.
• GP conforms as a component for the following standards:
UL 1950 (+ D3), Second Edition, dated February 26, 1993 (Standard for Safety of
Information Technology Equipment, including Electrical Business Equipment)
CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 950-M89 (+D3) (Standard for Safety of Information
Technology Equipment, including Electrical Business Equipment)
The D3 deviations are: SC1.3.4, SC1.3.8, SC2.1, SC2.9, and SC5.3.
These deviations will lose effect on March 15, 2000.
GP270-LG31-24V (UL Registration Model: 0680028-03) Class III Equipment
GP270-SC31-24V (UL Registration Model: 0680028-04) Class III Equipment
• Machinery with a GP mounted in it requires UL inspection for the combination
of the GP and the machinery.
• GP mounted machinery will also be treated as having the D3 deviations.
• Please be sure the GP's rear cover is protected by machinery with a FIRE
ENCLOSURE. The GP's rear plastic case does not have the features for a
flame protective enclosure required by the UL standard. The FLAMMABILITY RATING for the rear plastic case is 94V-0.
• The electric power must be supplied by ELV circuit that complies with Subclause 1.3.8 in the UL1950 Standard, or from a limited power source which
fulfills conditions C1 and 2.11.
1. A power supply with DOUBLE INSULATION or REINFORCED secondary
circuits (for the UL recognized power supply (QQGQ2), the Output Category
(OC) must be SELV). However, for a power supply with Spacing (SP) approved by the UL 1950, use a supply approve without the D3 deviations.
2. With any load and a combination of single failure, the power supply must have
power output under 250VA, and output current under 41A.
3. The electric power must be supplied through a UL approved fuse (JDYX) .
However, the fuse must be rated 1A, and it must break when the current exceeds 210% of the rating for over 120 seconds.
• If the GP is mounted to cool itself naturally, please mount it onto a vertical
panel. Also, ensure that GP unit is mounted at least 100mm away from adjacent structures and other parts. If these conditions are not met, the heat gene
rated by internal components may cause a failure to meet the UL standard
requirements.

Specifications
(From previous page)
*1 The front face of the GP unit, installed in a solid panel, has been tested using conditions
equivalent to the standard shown in the specification . Even though the GP unit’s level of
resistance is equivalent to the standard, oils that should have no effect on the GP can
possibly harm the unit. This can occur in areas where either vaporized oils are present, or
where low viscosity cutting oils are allowed to adhere to the unit for long periods of time. If
the GP’s front face protection sheet becomes peeled off, these conditions can lead to the
ingress of oil into the GP and separate protection measures are suggested. Also, if nonapproved oils are present, it may cause deformation or corrosion of the front panel’s plastic
cover. Therefore, prior to installing the GP be sure to confirm the type of conditions that
will be present in the GP’s operating environment.
If the installation gasket is used for a long period of time, or if the unit and its gasket are
removed from the panel, the original level of the protection cannot be guaranteed. To
maintain the original protection level, you need to replace the installation gasket regularly.

When installing the GP panel, be sure to follow the steps listed below.
Before installing the GP into a cabinet or panel, check that the
moisture resistant gasket is securely attached to the unit.
Moisture resistant
gasket
Rear
face
It is strongly recommended that you use the gasket since it
absorbs vibration in addition to repelling water.
Place the GP on a level surface with the display panel facing
downward. Check that the GP’s moisture resistant gasket is
seated securely into the gasket’s groove, which runs around
the perimeter of the panel’s frame. For details about installing the gasket, refer to
7.1.2 Moisture Resistant Gasket Replacement
Creating a Panel Cut Out
Create the correct sized opening required to install the GP, using the installation dimensions given.
2.5.3 “GP Panel Cut Out Dimensions”
The mositure resistant gasket, installation brackets and attachment screws
are all required when installing the GP.

Opening
1.6 to 5mm
• It is important that the panel or cabinet's surface
is flat, in good condition and has no jagged edges.
• Panel thickness should be from 1.6mm to 5.0mm.
Installation and Wiring
• For easier maintenance and operation, plus better ventilation, ensure the GP
unit is mounted at least 100 mm away from adjacent structures and other parts.
• The GP uses ventilation in its outer shell to naturally cool itself. When installing the unit horizontally or sideways, use a forced air cooling system (i.e. a fan)
or lower the surrounding temperature to avoid overheating.

When installing sideways, place the GP so that the Power Terminal Block
points upwards.
•
Ensure heat from other equipment does not cause extra heating pressure on
the GP.
•
Do not use GP-270 Series in an environment that exceeds 50o C.
•
Ensure that this unit is located as far away as possible from electromagnetic
circuits, non-fuse type breakers, and other equipment that can cause arcing.
•
When installing the GP unit, with natural air circularion cooling system,
onto a slanted panel, the panel slope should not incline more than 30o.

Wiring
1. Power Cable Connection
• To avoid electric shocks, be sure the Power Cord is unplugged from the main
power outlet before connecting the power terminals to the GP's terminal block.
• GP-270 Series units can only use DC24V input. If you supply power other
than DC24V, you will damage both the power supply and the GP unit.
• There is no power switch on the GP unit, so please use a breaker switch.
When the FG terminal is connected, be sure the wire is grounded. Not grounding
the GP unit will result in excess noise.
• Wherever possible, use thick wires (max 2mm2) for power terminals, and
provide an extra twist to the wire during connection.
• Please use Ring Terminals with the size described below.
• To avoid a short among the ring terminals when the screws get loosen,
please use ring terminals with a sleeve.

Connect the GP's FG terminal to an exclusive ground. [diagram (a). Be sure
there is a grounding resistance of 100Ω
or less, or your country's applicable
standard.
If exclusive grounding is not possible,
use a common connection point. [diagram (b)]
The grounding wire should have a
cross sectional area greater than
2mm2. Set the connection point as
close to the GP unit, and make the wire
as short, as possible. When using a
long grounding wire, replace the thin
wire with a thicker wire placed in a
duct.
If this equipment does not function
properly when grounded, disconnect
the ground wire from the FG terminal.
3. Precaution: Input/Output Signal Lines
Input and output signal lines must be separated from the power control
cables for operating circuits.
If this is not possible, use a shielded cable and connect the shield to the
frame of the GP unit.

3. STATION SETUP (n:1)
The STATION SETUP, necessary for the n:1 (multi-link) setup, checks whether
correct communications run with the connected GP System configuration.
NETWORK INFORMATION ADDRESS
In the n:1 (multi-link) connection, the Network Information uses 2 words in its
correspondences. These 2 words are the Connection part and the Validation
part (described later in this section). Allocate these respective areas into the
PLC's Data Register (D) or Data Memory (DM).
PLC Data Register
In the NETWORK INFORMATION ADDRESS, setup all the GP's connected
to the same link unit with the same address. Furthermore, when there
are 2 ports in the connected link unit, do not make these use the same
address.
• Connection Part
The word address for the Connection Part sets up the number of GP's connected
to the PLC, registered beforehand on the PLC side. When these GP's are connected to the PLC, the corresponding PLC bit numbers for the particular GP
Stations (see bottom) turn on.
When the GP is connected to the PLC, and the option of GP only
correspondence ends and Offline mode is entered, the GP Station
Number turns the corresponding PLC bit off.

STATION NO.
This is the setup for the number of GP Stations in use, as mentioned in the above
section. The setup range is from 0 to 15, and the only other restriction is each
GP STATION NO. must be unique in the system. If STATION NO.'s are repeated, a
COMMUNICATION ERROR occurs.
• The STATION NO. is the number allocated to the particular GP unit.

4. CUSTOMIZE SETUP
The Customize function alters the n:1 (multi-link) connection's communication
to make it more effective. To run communication efficiently, determine whether
to use Operation or Display priority with your GP. As a result, the communication response speed can be upgraded, although the speed changes with the screen
information.
PLC PRIORITY
According to how the GP is used, select either Operation priority (OPE.) or
Display priority.
• Display
Setup the GP to this option when using the GP mainly as a monitor screen. The
GP will command a higher display speed as a result; however, the response time
for the touch panel's operations will slow.
• Operation
Setup the GP to this option when using the GP mainly as an operation panel. As
a result, the GP will command better touch panel numeric input and switch
response times.
Leaving the GP in this mode does not influence the touch panel operation response time of the rest of the GP's very much; however, the screen display renewal cycle will slow down
• In a basic setup, run the same setup for all connected GP's.
• To increase the display speed, restrict addresses used to consecutive
addresses wherever possible. And make bit addresses consecutive to
the word unit.
• Display Priority and Operation Priority Speed Difference
When using the Mitsubishi Electric Corp. A3A PLC, with a scan time of 20ms
with consecutive addresses (80 words not included in the System Area), the
difference in speed when reading is as shown in the following graphs.

GP TOUCH MONOPOLIZE
The monopolizing of touch panel use can be set On or Off. When you want to
use the PLC exclusively with a Momentary operation setup on the touch panel
GP-PRO/PB 3 PLC Connection Manual), turn GP TOUCH MONOPO(
LIZE on.
When this setup is on, the touch panel uses the PLC exclusively whenever the
momentary operation setup on the panel is pressed. In this way, you can use the
inching operation with a momentary switch. When you stop pressing the panel,
exclusive use ends.
MONOPOLIZE TIME (0~2550s)
This field controls the length of time for the monopolize procedure when no
other touch panel operations are performed. The Monopolize process begins
when the System Data Area's 7th bit of word address LS14 turns on, and ends
either when the bit turns off, or when the time set here passes.
• Pressing the touch panel in the middle of the monopolize process
interrupts the MONOPOLIZE TIME function, ending exclusive use.
• When MONOPOLIZE TIME is set to 0, the monopolize function does
not end automatically.

This chapter describes the GP RUN and problem solving processes.
6.1
RUN
There are two ways of entering RUN mode, from powering up and from Off-line
mode.
1. Powering Up
Activate the GP unit. After the unit has powered up, the START TIME value—set
up in INITIALIZE/ SYSTEM SET UP—determines how long the display, illustrated
below, appears, until it gives way to the screen number setup in the INITIALIZE/
SET UP SCREEN menu. However, if a screen has not been set up, or if the screen
set up does not exist, then the display below will remain.
2. Off-line Mode
Press Off-line mode's MAIN MENU item number 4, RUN. The INITIALIZE/ SET UP
SCREEN option determines the first screen that appears in RUN mode, thereby
beginning communication with the PLC. However, if a screen has not been set
up, or if the screen set up does not exist, then the display above remains.

Troubleshooting
This section describes how to find and resolve problems that may occur on the
GP. If there is a problem on the PLC side, refer to the corresponding PLC
manual.
1. Trouble Types
Shown below are some problems that may occur while using this unit.
(1) No Display
The screen will not display even when the unit is powered On. Also, during
RUN mode, the screen disappears.
(2) No Communication
The GP unit cannot extract data from the host. An error message may appear on the screen as a result. For more about error messages, refer to the
section in this chapter titled, "Error Messages".
(3) Touch Panels Do Not Function
The touch panel does not react when pressed, or the reaction time is very
slow.
(4) Off-line displays During RUN Mode.

Run & Errors
For the first three problems, see the flowcharts listed on the following pages.
For the last problem, a SYSTEM ERROR may have developed while displaying
the Off-line mode screen. Refer to Chapter 6.4, "Error Messages—Details".
However, this is not a problem when having entered Off-line mode by pressing the top left corner within ten seconds of powering up.
• Because of the danger of electric shocks, make sure the power is not
supplied before wiring the unit.
• When changing the backlight, there is the danger of electric shocks and
burns, so be sure to use gloves when working on the unit.
This section assumes that the cause of any problems comes from the GP, and
not from the host. When the host PLC is the problem, refer to the corresponding PLC manual.

• Offline mode displays while in RUN mode
When the GP changes to Off-line mode without pressing the screen, there is a
possibility that the screen data has been damaged. When the screen data is
damaged, after the SYSTEM ERROR displays, the screen automatically reverts to
Off-line mode after about 10 seconds. Run the INITIALIZE MEMORY command
and transfer the GP screen data again from your PC.
ILLEGAL ADDRESS IN SCREEN DATA
This error message is caused by an overlap of addresses.
Following the error message, error codes, as listed below, appear. If the error
cannot be fixed, please report the error code and details on how the error developed to your local GP distributor.

The N-tag is set to 32 bits, meaning it uses two word addresses. Since
the first address is 99, the second address must be 100. Address 100 is
ineligible for use since it has already been used for the System Data
Area.
UNSUPPORTED TAG IN SCREEN DATA
A list of tag(s) in use that are unsupported by the current GP version appear with
this error message. Setup the tags to correspond with the GP.
For details about tags,

PLC NOT CONNECTED (02:FF) (02:F7)
Displays when communication with the PLC has stopped for over 60 seconds,
when there is a transmission timeout error, or when there is excess noise.

Run & Errors
PLC NOT RESPONDING (02:FE)
Displays when there is a Reply Timeout Error, or when there is excess noise.
The origin of the problem and the matching solutions are listed in the table
below.
ORIGIN
1. The power for the PLC host is not
activated.
2. GP unit INITIALIZE setup (Setup I/O,
PLC Setting) is incorrect.
3. The host and GP powering up
process was incorrect.
4. The Communication Cable was not
connected properly.
SOLUTION
1. Turn On the host's power switch.
2. Setup the unit correctly and match up
with the current host and Communication
Cable.
3. Turn the host's power On first, wait 2~3
seconds, then power up the GP unit.
4. Check the Communication Cable wiring
and connect it up properly.
RECEIVE DATA ERROR (02:FD)
This problem arises as a result of one of these three:
• There is a problem in trying to receive the data
• The connected PLC and the PLC setup for the data is different
• Noise
These errors, except for noise, appear when the Communication Cable is pulled
out when the GP unit is On, or when normal communication operations are
being run, but the GP has been powered Off, then back On. To solve the problem, simply begin running transmissions again.
When the error is a result of noise, correct any improper connections.
GP STATION NO. DUPLICATION ERROR (02:F9)
This error appears for one of two reasons:
• The GP number is same as the station number for another GP. Check all
the GP station numbers.
• In the middle of correspondences, the PLC power has been turned On/Off.
Reset the power on the PLC and GP.
NETWORK ADDRESS ERROR (02:F8)
The SIO address setup for the GP is different from other GP's. Check the address setup for all the GP's.

Others When the Error Number displays, different for each PLC, look up the error number in
the indicated PLC manual or, report the error number to the PLC maker.
• Disregard the above table if Error Number 51 appears and you are
using a PLC other than Fuji Electric. Look up the error contents in
your PLC manual and follow the instructions therein.
• Disregard the above table if Error Number 53 appears and you are
using a PLC other than Matsushita Electronics. Look up the error
contents in your PLC manual and follow the instructions therein.
• In Hitachi's HIDIC H (HIZAC H) Series, the error code is divided
into 2 bytes, whereas the GP Error Number is composed of 1 byte
codes. (see next page)
