Because of it, the existing PLC connection cables cannot be used as they are.
If you use the existing connection cables, see [4.5 Cable Diagram at the time of
replacement].
* For the models except GP-3302B:
When both the COM1 port and the COM2 port have the RS-422/485 setting, only
the COM2 port can be used for RS-422/485 connection after replacement.
Using a USB/RS-422/485 Conversion Adapter (PFXZCBCBCVUSR41) allows you to
use GP4000 series’ USB interface as RS-422/485 serial interface for connection.
For more information, please refer to USB/RS-422/485 Conversion Adapter
Installation Guide.

20
(PFXZCBCBCVUSR41) for your connection, please contact our sales office in
your region. (http://www.pro-face.com/customer/contact.html)
2.4.2 CF Card Interface (except GP-3302B)
GP-4301T/TW is not equipped with a CF card slot. But a SD card slot (for GP-4301T
only) and a USB interface are installed. In order to use the GP-3300 series
functions using the CF card, use a SD card or USB flash drive for GP-4301T/USB
flash drive for GP-4301TW instead.
* When using a SD card with GP-4301T, please verify it supports the following
specifications:
File format
Maximum capacity
