(a) FLT, FLTD, HEX, ASC, and other instructions
Instruction names differ between the QnUDVCPU and the RCPU.
Names of instructions for the RCPU are changed so that the data status before and after conversion can be easily
understood from the name.
(b) QCDSET and COMRD instructions
The RCPU does not support the QCDSET and COMRD instructions.
Change the program so that a device comment is read and stored to the GOT. (Use a GOT connectable to the
RCPU.)
(c) CCOM and COM instructions
The RCPU does not support the CCOM instruction. Use the COM instruction instead.
An execution condition is given to the COM instruction for the RCPU. Therefore, the instruction operates in the
same way as the CCOM instruction for the QnUDVCPU.
Program (GX Works2)
Program (GX Works3)
(d) S.TO instruction
The RCPU does not support the S.TO instruction. Use the TO instruction instead.
Since data are written at execution of the instruction, the completion device (D), which turns on for one scan
upon completion of the processing, is not provided for the TO instruction. If (D) is used in the MELSEC-Q
series program, the program needs to be corrected.
In the program example below, M0 is the completion device (D).

(e) UNIRD instruction
The RCPU does not support the UNIRD instruction. Use the UNIINFRD instruction instead.
The UNIINFRD instruction reads module information in units of two words. If the module information (in units
of one words) read by using the UNIRD instruction is used in the MELSEC-Q series program, the program
needs to be corrected.

(f) DI and EI instructions
An execution condition is given to the DI and EI instructions for the RCPU.
For this reason, an instruction to skip the execution of these instructions, such as a jump instruction, is not
required. To execute these instructions every scan in the same way as those for the QnUDVCPU, set SM400
(Always ON) as an execution condition.

The SM/SD number assignment differs between the QnUDVCPU and the RCPU. Also, some SM/SD areas are
used for different purposes. If SM/SD is used in the MELSEC-Q series program, the program needs to be
corrected.
When the QnUDVCPU project created by using GX Works2 is opened and edited by using GX Works3, the
SM/SD areas that have not been replaced in advance are automatically converted to the corresponding SM/SD
areas or CPU buffer memory (U3En\G*) assigned to the RCPU. If the area is converted to the CPU buffer
memory (U3En\G*), 'n' is fixed to CPU No.1. Change 'n' to the corresponding number as needed (for CPU No.2
to No.4).

(j) Service processing
The RCPU performs file access processing, such as reading program files, without being synchronized with each
scan (not during END processing) so that the scan time will not be delayed due to the processing.
For this reason, the response performance does not improve even though the number of processing counts is
increased in the device/label access service processing setting. (The response performance does not improve
either even though the COM instruction is used.)
On the other hand, the RCPU performs device access processing, such as reading device data, during END
processing. Therefore, the response performance of device access processing can be improved by increasing the
number of processing counts in the device/label access service processing setting or by using the COM
instruction.

(l) Access to the host CPU operation information area in CPU shared memory
The RCPU does not have the host CPU operation information area (U3En/G0 and later) in CPU shared memory.
If the host CPU operation information area is used in the MELSEC-Q series program, the program needs to be
corrected.
To check the operation information of another CPU module, refresh the data in the corresponding special
register (SD) to the CPU shared memory, and then access to the data stored in the memory.

(m)Access to the multiple CPU high speed transmission area
Area used for data communications among multiple CPU modules has been extended in the RCPU. The multiple
CPU high speed transmission area is included in the fixed scan communication area, and the addresses have been
changed from U3En\G10000 and later to U3En\HG0 and later.
If the multiple CPU high speed transmission area is used in the MELSEC-Q series program, the program needs
to be corrected.
When the QnUDVCPU project created by using GX Works2 is opened and edited by using GX Works3, the
addresses U3En/G10000 and later are automatically converted to U3En/HG0 and later. Note, however, that if the
fixed scan communication area is accessed by using the FROM/TO instructions, the access method needs to be
corrected. Use the data transfer instruction and CPU buffer memory access device, (example: MOV U3En\HG*
D0) instead of the FROM/TO instructions.
Program that accesses to the multiple CPU high speed transmission area (GX Works2)

(n) Refresh using the multiple CPU high speed transmission area
The RCPU performs multiple CPU refresh at two timings: during END processing and at execution of the
multiple CPU synchronous interrupt (I45). Since refresh timing differs, if refresh using the multiple CPU high
speed transmission area is set in the MELSEC-Q series program, the program needs to be corrected.
To perform refresh during END processing, set the refresh timing in system parameter ("Refresh Setting (At the
END)" under "CPU Buffer Memory Setting").

Also, change the password of an external device in accordance with the password set to the RCPU if there is any
external device, such as an FTP client, that accesses the programmable controller.
(p) Self-diagnostics function
The RCPU batch-clears all the continuation errors being detected.
The delete-target continuation error does not need to be specified individually.
The error code system for the RCPU has been renewed. If an error code is set as an operating condition or
interlock condition in the MELSEC-Q program, the program needs to be corrected.

(a) Resolution mode switching function
The MELSEC iQ-R series modules do not support the resolution mode switching function because the resolution
has already been enhanced.
Using the scaling function yields a value equivalent to that in the MELSEC-Q series. Note that the converted
value is stored into the "Digital operation value" area, and thus has a different buffer memory address to be
referred.
(b) Temperature drift compensation function
The MELSEC iQ-R series modules do not support the temperature drift compensation function because the
accuracy has already been enhanced. (The accuracy is comparable to that of the MELSEC-Q series with the
temperature drift compensation function used.) If the function is used in the MELSEC-Q series program, the
program needs to be corrected.

(a) Resolution mode switching function
The MELSEC iQ-R series modules do not support this function because the resolution has already been
enhanced.
Using the scaling function yields a value equivalent to that in the MELSEC-Q series. Note that the converted
value is stored into the "Digital operation value" area, and thus has a different buffer memory address to be
referred.

This section describes the differences of positioning modules between MELSEC-Q series
(QD75P2N/QD75P4N/QD75D2N/QD75D4N) and MELSEC iQ-R series (RD75P2/RD75P4/RD75D2/RD75D4).
For details on the MELSEC iQ-R series modules, refer to the MELSEC iQ-R Positioning Module User's Manual
(Application) (SH-081245ENG) and the MELSEC iQ-R Positioning Module User's Manual (Startup)
(SH-081243ENG).
(1) Wiring
There are differences in the layout of PULSE COM terminals between the QD75D2N/QD75D4N and the
RD75D2/RD75D4.
To use the 40-pin connector of the QD75D2N/QD75D4N with the RD75D2/RD75D4, wiring to the 2B20 and 2B19
pins is required.

 Writing parameters
The MELSEC iQ-R series allows parameters to be written to the CPU module as well as the positioning module.
This makes it possible to control parameters centrally by the CPU module, thereby making it easier to change the
module in maintenance.
The module parameters and module extension parameters stored in the CPU module are reflected to the
positioning module when the system is powered on, the CPU module is reset, or the operating status of the CPU
module is changed from STOP to RUN.
To set the module extension parameters using a program, execute the parameter setting program after Module
access flag turns on. Since the parameters stored in the CPU module is written to the positioning module when the
operating status of the CPU module is changed from STOP to RUN, execute the parameter setting program again.
To set positioning data using a program or change positioning data using the teaching function, especially for the
system where positioning data varies from one workpiece to another or the system where settings are changed
with GOT or other external devices, set "Positioning module" in "Extended parameter storage setting" under basic
setting of module parameter, and store parameters into the positioning module using the module backup function.
(4) I/O signals and buffer memory areas
The layouts of I/O signals and buffer memory areas differ between MELSEC-Q series and MELSEC iQ-R series.
If I/O signals and buffer memory areas are used in the MELSEC-Q series program, the program needs to be

1.5.5 Serial communication modules
This section describes the differences of serial communication modules between MELSEC-Q series
(QJ71C24N/QJ71C24N-R2/QJ71C24N-R4) and MELSEC iQ-R series (RJ71C24/RJ71C24-R2/RJ71C24-R4).
For details on the MELSEC iQ-R series modules, refer to the MELSEC iQ-R Serial Communication Module User's
Manual (Application) (SH-081251ENG).

*1 Pager receiver specification of data for modem connection registration and refresh settings for confirmation of notification status cannot be used.
 Writing parameters
The MELSEC iQ-R series allows parameters to be written to the CPU module as well as the serial communication
module. This makes it possible to control parameters centrally by the CPU module, thereby making it easier to change
the module in maintenance.
The module parameters and module extension parameters stored in the CPU module are reflected to the serial
communication module when the system is powered on, the CPU module is reset, or the operating status of the CPU
module is changed from STOP to RUN.
(3) I/O signals
The layout of I/O signals differs between MELSEC-Q series and MELSEC iQ-R series.
If I/O signals are used in the MELSEC-Q series program, the program needs to be corrected.
