Further, with the multi-color display board, 65,536-color display is available. (For GT15 only) (2) With a memory card, high-speed data transfer of OS and screen data between personal computer and GOT is available. The CF card interface is standard equipment, so by mounting a memory card made for OS or screen data created on a personal computer, high-speed data can be exchanged. (Data can also be transferred via USB, RS-232, or Ethernet.) Memory card (CF card ) (3) USB interface as standard equipment The USB interface is provided as standard equipment. The interface is located at the front, so the cable can be connected without opening the panel. Data transferring time is reduced to approximately 1/20 compared with previous communication: RS-232. And setup time is also reduced significantly. (4) For various connection types Beginning with bus connection that allows for high-speed communication, GOT supports various connection types—including direct CPU, computer link, CC-Link, MELSECNET/10, and Ethernet connections. Select the connection type to suit the system. (5) Heavy-duty body for an extreme environment or operation Because the GOT display complies with IP67 standards for waterproof and dustproof, it can be used in various environments. (6) Alarm function When any breakdown or malfunction occur, the alarm messages are displayed. A history of the date, time, and frequency which the error occurred is held. The occurrence status can be displayed as a graph or saved to a memory card. Errors can be classified into groups or levels to help organize the error information. 1-2 (7) Parts overlay (Layer function) With the layer function, parts(objects/figures) can be superimposed, which increases design flexibility. For example, fluctuating numeric values and graphs, trend graphs and bar graphs, image data and pointers can be superimposed and displayed together. Front layer Back layer Actual view (8) Expressive font variation Two types of fonts are available: Mincho and Gothic. ® TrueType fonts and Windows fonts are also available to display from small characters to large characters truly. (9) Language switching function The comment display created every language can be switched according to the device value. Screens which all the characters on the screen switch to Japanese, English, and Korean are easy to create with a touch switch. Switching language with the device. (10) Debug with enhanced compatibility with Mitsubishi PLC All debug functions can be used to install the extended function OS to GOT from GT Designer2.

The primary source of coil ON/OFF status, the device, and contact point can be searched. Controller devices can be monitored and modified. A function designed to increase the efficiency of maintenance operations so that maintenance can be performed to resolve trouble with the controller system. As MELSECNET line conditions are displayed, communication conditions can be checked by GOT only. The data of the intelligent function module buffer memory can be monitored and changed using a dedicated screen. The I/O module signal condition can also be monitored. The parameter settings and reference/diagnosis of the error history for the servo amplifier connected by GOT can be performed. The Position Display Monitor, Alarm Diagnosis Monitor, Tool Offset/Param, Program Monitor, and APLC release screen that are equal to those of MELDAS dedicated display device can be displayed on the MELDAS connected to GOT. The Q motion controller CPU Servo Monitor and parameter settings can be performed on the GOT screen. MELSEC-A series, FX series sequence program can be edited in list (instruction word) format. Program changes can be made without peripheral. 1-3 1.4 GOT function list The table below shows the list function for each GOT model. 1-4 1-5 1.5 Applicable connection type between the GOT and the PLC CPU The GOT can perform monitoring by connecting it to the PLC using the following connection types. Therefore, the connection type suitable for the system configuration or usage can be selected. (1) Bus connection Bus connection is a method using an extension connector of a base unit to connect a GOT (connection by I/O bus). This connection type enables the fastest response to a PLC CPU among all GOT connection types. By occupying one stage of the extension base unit, up to maximum 5 GOTs can be connected. Connection to multiple GOTs is possible. QCPU GOT GOT GOT (2) Direct CPU connection Direct CPU connection is a method using a RS-232/RS-422 to connect a GOT. Because no other equipment is required to connect the GOT to the PLC, this is the most economical connection type. PLC GOT (3) Computer link connection Computer link connection is a method using a computer link module or a serial communication module mounted together with a PLC CPU. Connection of multiple GOTs is available depending on the model type of the computer link module or the serial communication module mounted with the PLC CPU. Serial communication unit PLC GOT GOT 1-6 GOT (4) MELSECNET/10 connection GOT can be connected to the network as a normal station of the MELSECNET/10 (PLC to PLC network). The cyclic data of the MELSECNET/10 (PLC to PLC network) and devices of the PLC CPU within the same network can be monitored. GOT QCPU GOT Optical loop system QCPU Coaxial bus system QCPU GOT QCPU GOT GOT (5) CC-Link connection GOT can be connected to the network as an intelligent device station of the CC-Link System. The cyclic data of the CC-Link System and devices of the PLC CPU on the master or local station can be monitored.

All entries are in alphabetical order A Access key A key used instead of selecting menu items for GT Designer2 or other applications The underlined letter in a menu item shows its access key. Address A position in memory The PLC has various devices, including data registers (D) and internal memory (M). The positions in these memories are called addresses. Addresses are expressed in decimal or hexadecimal format. Hexadecimal format: X, Y, B, W Decimal format: All addresses other than the above Alignment The figures and objects in the selected area are aligned with the specified method. Besides up/down/left/right and center, there is also top-justified or left-justified alignment. With top-justified alignment, all the figures including the most upper left and the most right bottom figures in the alignment area are justified. This is useful for uniform-interval layout of numbers in tables and other objects. ALT (alternate) Operation name for GT Designer2 touch switches When a touch switch on the screen is touched, the current status of the bit device is toggled between ON and OFF. ASCII display ASCII code is a standard American code system. Many computer systems use ASCII codes to express information. With a GOT, character string data (e.g., ABC) is input and displayed. Character string data can be written to buffer memory in special function module and word devices. Attribute (change) The polyline/fill pattern/text status are called attributes. Changing the status of an attribute is called attribute change. • Polyline: Line style/line width/color • Pattern: Line style/color • Text: Font, vertical magnification ratio/horizontal magnification ratio/direction/style/ background color/color Appendix 30 B Backlight This is a fluorescent lamp that shines light from the rear of an LCD in order to display with the LCD. Base screen The screen displayed over the entire GOT display area The base screen comprises figure and object settings. Basic monitor The general name for the basic GOT functions This means the basic functions of an electronic operation panel, such as switch and lamp functions and number data and message display. Bit device Located in the PLC device, and transmits information with one bit. In a GOT, each bit of a word device can be used as a bit device. Bit map (BMP) This is a file format for storing pixel images and is indicated with the extension (.BMP). In a GOT, bit maps can be used as figure or part data. BMP files can be output with image scanners or commercially available graphics software. Blink Makes the display go on and off repeatedly and cyclically Buffer memory (BM) Memory unique to PLC special function module it can be read and written directly from a GOT. Bus connection Connection of the GOT to the PLC base with an extension cable This connection is through the I/O bus. The GOT can be used with about the same responsiveness as a conventional pushbutton. C Cascade (menu) When a GT Designer2 menu is selected, the menu is selected is displayed lined up from top to bottom. When an item in this vertical menu is selected, a horizontal menu is displayed on the left. This state is called cascade display. Click Moving the cursor to the desired position on the screen, then pressing the mouse button once is called clicking. Pressing the mouse button twice in a row quickly is called double clicking. Moving the mouse cursor to the desired position holding down the mouse button, then releasing the mouse button is called dragging. Appendix 31 Communication driver This is one type of software (OS) for communicating with the PLC. There is a dedicated communication driver for each communication format (bus connection, direct CPU connection, etc.), so always install it on the GOT with the OS installation function. Counter (C) This is a device that counts how many times the input came ON and switches the contact ON when the set value is reached. To clear a counter value, it is necessary to reset the counter with a reset command. Cyclic communication This is a function for data communication between stations on the same network with MELSEC. This function uses the link relay (B), link register (W), link input (X), and link output (Y) devices. A GOT directly connected to MELSECNET can use B and W as its own station devices. D Data register (D) This is a PLC register for storing numbers. It is also called a D register. A data register can handle 16-bit or 32-bit data. With some PLC types, the data registers can handle not only integers, but real numbers as well. The GOT has dedicated GD registers. Default value This is the initial value. Device This is the general name for memory in the PLC CPU. There are various devices, such as input (X), output (Y), and data register (D), for various applications. Display conditions (write conditions) Operating (displaying or writing) only when the set conditions are met. There are the following eight types of conditions. • Ordinary: Always display. • Rising: Only display when the specified device comes ON. • Falling: Only display when the specified device comes ON. • While ON: Always display while the specified device is ON. • While OFF: Always display while the specified device is OFF. • Sampling: Display with the specified cycle unit (1-3600 seconds). • Cycle during ON: For each specified cycle (1-3600 seconds), always display if the specified device is ON. • Cycle during OFF: For each specified cycle (1-3600 seconds), always display if the specified device is OFF. Appendix 32 Display Method The display color, operations, etc. can be changed for each specified range. The display area corresponding to monitor device value is specified by a comparison expression. Download To transfer screen data from the GT Designer2 PC to a GOT. Since data can be transferred divided by screen unit, comment, and part, you can download just the screen data you need for the circumstances.The reverse operation, of picking up screen data, is called uploading. E Edge trigger A trigger that updates the data display when the rising or falling edge of the specified bit is detected. Even if the trigger is not generated, the data can be forcibly displayed ON at the first time after the screen is switched. Edit Vertex This is an editing function for changing the position of vertices of polygons or consecutive straight lines after drawing. EL Electro Luminescence; an orange/black monochrome display device One type of display element The same as LCDs, ELs have low brightness and are eye friendly. EN Standard Indicates a product that conforms with EC directives. The EN Standard is one standard in EC directives (laws). There are three main relevant EC directives: EMC directives, low-voltage directives, and mechanical directives. The EN Standard is the standard used for products meeting these directives. (e.g., safety) Extension cable This cable connects the PLC extension base (basic base) and the GOT when the PLC and GOT are connected with a bus connection. Extension file register (R) These are file register extension registers in the PLC memory cassette. The extension file register capacity is set with parameters. The capacity that can be set depends on the CPU used and the memory cassette capacity. Indicated with R with MELSEC-A. Indicated with R and ZR with MELSEC-QnA. Appendix 33 F Falling (trigger) This is the status when the devices goes from ON to OFF. With a GOT, the condition established just once at the fall is called a falling trigger. Be aware that after the device falls, if the time until it comes ON is short, sometimes the fall cannot be detected and display is not possible. By setting "initial display", the falling can be forcibly established once even if no trigger is generated when the screen is switched. File register (R) These are extension registers for when data registers (D) are insufficient. The file register capacity is set with parameters. The capacity that can be set depends on the CPU used and the memory cassette capacity. Free location touch switch Free location touch switches are so called because they are touch switches with a minimum of 16-by-16 dots (one double-byte character worth), and they can be located freely per dot. The enabled/disabled area can be specified and the switch can also be protected conditionally. G Graphic operation terminal The name of the Mitsubishi Electric display unit. The name GOT is an acronym for Graphic Operation Terminal. H Handle This is the small filled square displayed on the rectangle surrounding a figure when a figure is selected. Moving the mouse cursor here changes the shape of the cursor. If the mause is moved with the left mouse button held down, the figure size can be changed. By holding down Shift key while the above operation, the figure size can be changed while maintaining the aspect ratio. I Icon In Windows, a picture selected (by double-clicking it with the mouse) in order to execute an application such as GT Designer2 Appendix 34 Install To register application software on a PC or GOT The GOT OS is installed on the GOT from GT Designer2. This function is called the OS installation and is executed by selecting [Communications] [Communicate with GOT] from the menu. In an OS installation, it is possible to install only the necessary elements of each of the following functions. Standard monitor OS Communication driver Option OS (standard fonts (Chinese, simplified characters), recipes) <Note> At least one connection type driver for connecting with the PLC must be installed. Instantaneous power failure A power failure of extremely short duration. The PLC/GOT do not treat a power failure lasting less than 20 ms as a power failure. A power failure lasting longer than this results in initial processing the same as when the power is first switched ON. Interlock This is a block that prevents the system from shifting to the next operation until the operation being executed is completed. Interlocks are used to prevent devices from going out of control or being destroyed. Normally, interlocks are put in place using bit devices. Such signals are called interlock conditions. With a GOT, two types of interlocks can be set: display conditions and write conditions. Display condition: An operation condition check based on an edge trigger or level trigger Display method: A check based on the display range or write range IP65F IP is the abbreviation for International Protection; this indicates a product that conforms with IEC standard 529. IP 6 5 F Option code (Class, A-Z, for protection against oil penetration) No. 2 code (Class, 0-8, for protection against water penetration) No. 1 code (Class, 0-6, for protection against human body and solid foreign matter) Protection characteristic function The degree of IP65 protection No. 1 code = 6: No dust penetrates. No. 2 code = 5: Is not harmed by direct spraying of water, for example at locations cleaned periodically. Option code = F: Is not harmed by oil drops or application of oil, for example at locations cleaned periodically. Appendix 35 ISO9001 ISO9000 covers a series of standards from the International Standard Organization. These are international standards prescribing quality system requirements with the objective of assuring quality to customers. ISO9000 covers four standards: ISO9001, ISO9002, ISO9003, and ISO9004. The GOT1000 has received ISO9001 certification. K Key window This is a window for which the number input keys are set. There are decimal and hexadecimal system number key windows, so there is no need to set (create) the number keys on the screen. L Layer This is a function that divides a single screen into two structures, the front screen and the back screen, making it possible to set objects for each layer separately. Objects set for the front screen layer and back screen layer respectively can also be displayed overlaid. Layer processing Name of operation processing for screen switching Since the screen switching is layered, it can be executed automatically without setting the layer structure. Level trigger A trigger that always updates the data display timing only when the specified bit is ON or when it is OFF. Library A library comprises figures and objects and is a group of information having one meaning. The individual group information becomes a template. A screen can be created by pasting the templates on the screen in the appropriate combination. M Maximize button The maximize button is at the right of the window title bar. Clicking this button expands the GT Designer2 or other application to be displayed over the entire screen (maximized display). Maximize display This is the act of displaying GT Designer2 or some other application over the entire screen or the state in which the application is so displayed. Memory card (CF card) Since screen data can be stored on a memory card, a memory card is used for high-speed copying of screen data to other GOTs. If an alarm log is stored to a memory card, this alarm log can be displayed even after the power is switched OFF, then ON again. Appendix 36 Menu bar The menu bar is positioned one row beneath the application window title bar. Message display Displays explanations of operations, functions, etc. for the processing (function) selected by the user. Momentary This is a function that switches ON the specified bit device only during touch switch input. This function can also switch ON specified bits of buffer memory or word devices. Multi-language type A GOT supports about 26,000 different characters for the writing systems of various nations as standard, so it can be used in the nations of the world. Japanese, Korean, Chinese, or the like characters can be input with the Front-End Processor (FEP) for that language. Multi-task real-time OS A multi-task OS executes multiple tasks on a computer simultaneously. Through the use of such an OS, a GOT can control communications, display, input, etc., all in real time. N Number keys These are the keys for inputting numbers 0-9. A GOT has system number key windows, so there is no need to set (create) the number keys on the screen. O Object With the GOT1000, the desired functions will be available by pasting switch figures, lamp figures, numeric display frame figures, etc, with GT Designer2 to set the compatibility between PLC device memory (bit, word) and operation functions. The setting targets are called objects. Operating ambient temperature This is the operating ambient temperature range after the device power is switched ON. Since the PLC is normally installed in a control panel, the temperature mentioned above means in the control panel. Pay attention to the fact that part of the GOT is in the control panel and part is outside the control panel, and those parts have different operating ambient temperature. (See below.) Display section: 0 to 50ºC Other than display section: 0 to 55ºC Appendix 37 Operating System (OS) Generally, this means the basic software for computers, etc. This is the software for running programs created by the user. In the PLC, the OS is for running the sequence programs and in the GOT, the OS is the program for operating the screen or touch switches as set and is supplied by Mitsubishi Electric. Ordinary trigger A trigger that constantly updates the data display. Ordinary write To update the contents displayed when there is any change in the data, rather than using a trigger in the display or input state as the trigger for data display or input. See "Trigger write". Output (Y) This signal outputs the results of PLC calculations to the outside with ON/OFF. The device name is expressed with Y. The PLC output unit has relays, triacs, and transistors. Overlap window A pop-up screen that appears over the base screen. Up to two overlap window screens can be displayed on one base screen. P Parts Parts comprise figures and are used with the "parts display" and "parts movement" functions. The figures that can be used in parts include text and image data. Parts movement (locus display) This operation erases the parts (figures) displayed just before, moves the parts to the specified new position (according to the coordinate device value), and displays it there. With parts movement, it is also possible to remain the parts displayed just before the movement. Such display is called parts locus display. Password The GOT1000 has two types. Screen data upload/download password Security function password Periodic trigger A trigger that updates the data display timing each time it is specified Project (file) The collection of all the information displayed on a single GOT is called a project. A project comprises screen information, parts information, etc. This information (project) is created in one file. However, the library information only is created in a separate file. Appendix 38 R Recipe The recipe function writes and reads the values of devices specified by the PLC CPU according to the specification conditions (device ON/OFF). The read-out data can be saved in a CSV-format file on a PC card for editing on a PC. RISC chip A RISC (Reduced Instruction Set Computer) is a computer whose central processing can execute high-frequency processing in a concentrated manner and at high speed through the analysis of high-level language programs. Such a CPU narrows the number and types of commands to increase speed and is appropriate for equipment processing large volumes of data at high speed, such as workstations. Rising (trigger) This is the status when the devices goes from OFF to ON. With a GOT, the condition established just once at the rise is called a rising trigger. Be aware that after the device rises, if the time until it goes OFF is short, sometimes the rise cannot be detected and display is not possible. By setting "initial display", the rising can be forcibly established once even if no trigger is generated when the screen is switched. RST (reset) To initialize the PLC (the same as when it is switched from OFF to ON) With MELSEC, all coils except latch devices go OFF, and timers, counters, and data registers go to 0. A command reset switches OFF all coils that are ON. S Screen There are two types of screens: the base screen and the window screen. The screen comprises objects and figures. Screen Name With GT Designer2, the project title and screen title can be set. Project title: Comprises the title information, detailed information, and author name. Screen title: Comprises the title information and detailed information. Screen preview This function can reproduce the screen display image or other displays on GT Designer2. Screen saver function This is a function that turns off the display on the GOT display if it goes untouched for a certain period of time. While the display is OFF, the display can be switched to ON by touching any on the screen. In this case, the touch switch being pressed does not operate. Appendix 39 Screen switching This switches between the GOT base screen and window screen. To switch between the screens, the word device for base and for window screen switching must be set. In addition to the PLC word devices, GOT dedicated devices (GD) in the GOT can also be used. Script function The script functions are functions designed to control the GOT display with the GOT’s original programs. Controlling the GOT display with the GOT side script drastically reduces the load on the system side (e.g. PLC CPU, microcomputer) display. Self check This is a function with which the GOT (CPU) detects its own errors. This function tests the GOT hardware, communications, memory, display, etc. Serial communication This is a method of communication that sends the data per bit along one line as the time goes by. Serial communication unit The module that provides the functions for connecting with the PLC and a computer (GOT or personal computer) and for reading/writing PLC devices. When connecting the GOT1000, a communications module for the GOT is required. Set To switch ON the bit device or the specified bit of the word device of the PLC The signal switched ON remains ON until it is reset. Setting value This is the setting value for a PLC timer (T) or counter (C) and is the numeric value used as the goal. In sequence programs, setting values can be set with fixed values or specified indirectly. With a GOT, setting values can be monitored and changed from the system monitor screen. Shortcut keys Shortcut keys are keys or combinations of keys that allow operations without opening the menu. Shortcut keys operate combining alphanumeric keys with Ctrl key or ALT key. Special (D)/(SD) These are registers with determined applications in the PLC. A variety of information can be viewed, including PLC CPU information and MELSECNET information. The QCPU and QnACPU have dedicated SD devices. With the ACPU, these are D9000- . Appendix 40 Special internal relay (M)/special relay (SM) These are internal relays (M) with determined applications in the PLC. A variety of information can be viewed, including PLC CPU information and MELSEC information. QCPU and QnACPU have dedicated SM devices. With the ACPU, these are M9000- . Status display bar The status display bar is the bottom line of the GT Designer2 display. It displays guidance, cursor information, position information, etc. STN STN (Super Twisted Nematic) liquid crystal A simple matrix type LCD that seals liquid crystals between multiple transparent electrodes lined up vertically and horizontally and that displays the desired image by applying signal voltage to the electrodes to control the liquid crystal array state at the intersections. Pixels are switched ON/OFF by twisting liquid crystal molecules and by aligning them into straight lines. The GOT1000 can display 256 colors or 16 tones of monochrome (black and white). System information This function transmits the GOT status (screen number being displayed, error number, etc.) to the PLC, and outputs information (GOT error resets etc.) from the PLC to the GOT. This function is set to a word device. A read device reads information to the GOT. A write device writes information from the GOT. T Template Templates are for easily saving and reading figures and objects. Text file This is a file containing only letters, numbers, and symbols. A comment can be output to a text file, edited with an editor, and the edited file can be input. Since object settings and other GOT screen information can be output to a text file with the print function, it is also possible to read this file into a word processor and create an original document. TFT A color liquid crystal display using TFTs (Thin Film Transistors) Thin-film transistors are laid out at the intersection of transparent electrodes lined up vertically and horizontally. This is an active-matrix type of LCD in which the liquid crystal is driven by these thin-film transistors so laid out. The response is fast. For color display, there are three TFTs for each pixel, and the light from each TFT is passed through a red, green, or blue color filter. Compared to simple matrix LCDs, there is no tendency to low contrast, and the number of scanning lines can be increased, and intermediate tone expression is also easy, so this type of LCD can display with high quality. On the other hand, the structure is complex, resulting in high cost. On the GOT1000, display is 256 colors/ 65536 colors. Appendix 41 Timer (T) This is a device that has the function of operating the timer coil after the specified time (timer setting value). The objective is to delay or hold an operation. There are two types of timers: 10ms and 100ms. The timer has a contact, coil, current value, and setting value. On the GOT monitor screen, all of these except the setting value can be monitored and written. The setting value can be monitored/written with the system monitor function. Tool bar This is a list of buttons etc. for menu items used relatively frequently. The following types of GT Designer2 toolbars are available. Tool bar (Standard): The standard group of functions such as New or Save Tool bar (View): A group of functions for setting the display, such as screen zoom or grid color Tool bar (Figures): A group of functions for setting figures such as straight line or text Tool bar (Objects): A group of functions for setting objects such as touch switches Tool bar (Figure edit): A group of functions for editing figures, such as front line display or flip horizontal Tool bar (Alignment): A group of functions for arranging the positions of figures and objects Tool bar (Figure drawing): A group of functions for setting display attributes such as the line style or pattern foreground color Tool bar (Communications): A group of functions for data transfer between a GOT and PC card Tool bar (Comment): A group of functions for setting the comment function Touch switch By pressing the screen, screen switching or writing to a device can be performed. The minimum size is a unit of one double-byte character (16 by 16 dots). Transfer format OS program See "Install". Transparent function When connecting a GOT and PLC CPU with direct CPU connection or a bus connection, connecting a PC or other peripheral device allows the sequence programs of the CPU to be read, written and monitored. Trigger write Operating (displaying or writing) only when the set conditions are met. These conditions are called trigger conditions. See "Ordinary write". U Unicode system Unicode is an international standard for character codes. The advantage of the Unicode system is that it provides a completely universal means for multi-nationalizing applications. Upload To read screen data from the GOT using GT Designer2 The read-out screen data can be re-edited, then transferred back (downloaded) to the GOT Appendix 42 W Window screen A pop-up screen that appears over the base screen. A window screen can be closed by touching the button at the top right of the window screen. The top row on the window is the window screen move key. If this move key is touched, and another location is touched, the window screen is moved so that its top left coordinate is at the location touched. The same as for the base screen, all objects can be set on the window screen. If a touch switch on the base screen is overlaid by the window screen, that switch is disabled. Word device Of the PLC devices, word devices are those that transmit information with 16 bits (one word). With a GOT, word devices can be handled with 16 bits or 32 bits. As data types, word devices support signed integers, unsigned integers, and real numbers. Word device set This is a function that writes the specified value to a word device when there is input at a touch switch. The specification type can be selected from fixed value, value of another word device, and fixed value added to (or subtracted from) the current device value.
