1. Requests for customers
The GOT model selection list (Table 2-1) shows the recommended GOT1000 series models that have no or
less restrictions on the specifications when replacing each old series with the GOT1000 series. There may be
some other models that you can select depending on their system environment. Therefore, we recommend you
to select appropriate models by carefully considering the range of performance in current systems.
2. Selection of GOT
Select a GOT model.
When replacing each old series with the GOT1000 series, the GOTs have different panel cutting dimensions.
Therefore, use an attachment. For some GOT models, no compatible attachment is available. The following
table shows the recommended GOT1000 series models and the compatibility of the panel cutting dimensions.

[Title] Precautions when Replacing GOTA800, A77GOT, A64GOT Series with GOT1000 Series
[Date of Issue] Ver.G: September 2011 (First Edition: September 2005)
[Relevant Models] GOT800, A77GOT, and A64GOT Series
*11 The communication units for the GOT800 series and A77GOT series have setting switches, including rotary switches.
Though the GOT1000 series communication unit does not have rotary switches and others, setting switches is required
with software. Therefore, set the switches with the drawing software or the utility. For details, refer to Section 3.2. for an
A bus connection unit, Section 3.4.2 (2) for a MELSECNET/10 communication module, and Section 3.4.2 (1) for
MELSECNET(Ⅱ) and MELSECNET/B communication modules.
*12 Specifications of external power supply voltage, external connection connector shape and others are changed. For
details, refer to the GT15 External I/O Unit (Positive Common Input/Sink Type Output) User's Manual (IB-0800382).
*13 When using the units for functions, including the external I/O function, sound output function, printer function, video/RGB
display function, and RGB output function, at the same time, use the following units. The slim model has limitation for
combination with other units.
GT15-ABUS (A bus connection 1ch), GT15-ABUS2 (A bus connection 2ch)
*14 To download monitor screen data and others from a personal computer to the GOT via the GOT built-in RS-232
interface, the cable must be replaced.
When the cable is not replaced, use the GT15-RS4-9S.
However, consider 1) as shown below.
1) The thickness of the GOT with the communication unit (E dimension shown in Chapter 5) increases by 13mm.
*15 Since the Centronics interface (A8GT-70PRF and A8GT-50PRF) is replaced with the USB interface (GT15-PRN) or the
RS-232 interface (GT15-RS2-9P or GOT built-in interface), change the printer model. For the printer models applicable
to the GOT1000 series (validated models), refer to TECHNICAL BULLETIN GOT-A-0010 “List of Valid Devices
Applicable for GOT1000 Series” on the MELFANSweb website.
3.2 Units that require new setting method
The communication units for the GOT800 series and A77GOT series listed below require settings with rotary
switches and others on the hardware. However, the communication units for the GOT1000 series do not have
rotary switches and others, and settings with the drawing software or the utility are required. For the GOT1000
series, refer to the following table.

The following two restrictions are applied for the replacement.
a) Station number settings need to be changed depending on the station that the GOT is connected to.
- When connecting to the master station, change all station numbers of objects to the host station (0-FF).
- When connecting to local stations, station numbers do not need to be changed.
b) When using the cyclic device with host station write, the write area of the GOT is unable to use. Therefore,
changing the write device and corresponding ladder is required.

7.2.2 Monitor screen data compatibility between GOT800 series and GOT1000 series
(1) Precautions for compatibility
When converting GOT800 series data into GOT1000 series data, the compatibility is basically upward.
However, some functions require changes of sequence programs or drawing data.
The following shows the functions that require changes of sequence programs or drawing data.
Table 7-2 Functions that require changes in sequence programs and drawing data
Item
Parts display
Description
When [Display Mode] is set to [XOR], the parts that group
superimposed figures are displayed as follows:
GOT800 series : The grouped figures are displayed at
once by using the XOR display.
GOT1000 series: Each in the grouped figures is
displayed individually in order of the
superimposed figures by using the
XOR display.
When [Display Mode] is set to [XOR] with the GOT800
series, if the same color is set for the line color and the
pattern color with the pattern type 8 (fill), the outside of
the part is displayed in one-dot smaller size with the
GOT1000 series.
When [Display Mode] is set to [XOR] with the GOT800
series (16-color model), if the converted data is displayed
with the GOT1000 series (16-color model), the
superimposed section of a figure and a part is displayed
with a dark color. (The display color setting is adjusted to
that of the GOT1000 series 65536-color models.)

value is a negative value or is outside the display range,
the parts are displayed as follows:
GOT800 series: The parts are not displayed.
GOT1000 series: The parts are displayed.
Procedures for replacing GOT800 series with GOT1000
series
Configure the auxiliary setting in the system environment
so that the grouped figures are displayed at once by using
the XOR display.
No change in the setting is required when the dark color is
used for the superimposed section.
When the dark color is not used for the superimposed
section, set the part to dark color.
(Either the part color or the superimposed section color is
always set to dark color.)

When [Indirect] is not set with the parts movement function,
the display contents have no difference between the

is set, the display contents have no difference between the
GOT800 series and the GOT1000 series unless the device
value is a negative value or outside the display range.
Please make the part number "0" when the device value
becomes a negative numerical value, and it becomes
outside "Display range" and set outside "Display range".
(Parts are not displayed by making the number of "Display
parts" "0". )

Description
The priority level when the movement of the touch
switch is set more than once is different according to
GOT used.
GOT800 series: Word SET → Bit SET
GOT1000 series: Bit SET → Word SET
When a minus value is input by a numeric input of BIN
with 16 bit sign, it is different according to GOT that the
value and the value of the value after it changes use
before changing system information.
Example: Last quotation that inputs numerical
value:"-1"
Numeric input value:"-2"
<System information of GOT800 series>
Value before it changes "0X0000FFFF"
Value after it changes "0X0000FFFE"
<System information of GOT1000 series>
Value before it changes "0XFFFFFFFF"
Value after it changes "0XFFFFFFFE"
For the GOT1000 series, the operation of b1 (Forced
screen saver enable signal) takes precedence of the
operation of b0 (Automatic screen saver disable signal).
Therefore, the operation of the GOT varies depending
on the series when b0 and b1 are turned on.
<When b0 and b1 are turned on>
GOT800 series
The display and the backlight are turned off by the
screen saver.
GOT1000 series
The display and the backlight remain on.
Procedures for replacing GOT800 series with
GOT1000 series
Change the order of the touch switch operations.
When a negative value with the 16-bit singed BIN is not
input, the values have no difference between GOT800
series and GOT1000 series.
When the sequence program refers to Value before it
changes of the system information in 16-bit unit, the
values have no difference between GOT800 series and
GOT1000 series.
When the sequence program refers to Value before it
changes of the system information in 32-bit unit, make the
program refer to the lower 16 bits.
To turn on or off the backlight by using the forced screen
saver enable signal (b1) and the automatic screen saver
disable signal (b0), change the sequence program and
others.
7.2.3 Monitor screen data compatibility between A77GOT or A64GOT series and GOT1000 series
When converting A77GOT or A64GOT series data into GOT1000 series data, convert the data into GOT800
series data, and then convert the 800 series data into GOT1000 series data with GT Converter2 Version□.
Because A77GOT or A64GOT series data is converted into GOT800 series data once, the compatibility of the
A77GOT or A64GOT series data conforms to the GOT800 series compatibility.
