[Design Instructions]
WARNING
● When data change, program change, or status control is performed from a personal computer to a running
programmable controller, create an interlock circuit outside the programmable controller to ensure that the whole
system always operates safely.
Furthermore, for the online operations performed from a personal computer to a programmable controller CPU, the
corrective actions against a communication error due to such as a cable connection fault should be predetermined as
a system.
[Startup/Maintenance Instructions]
CAUTION
● The online operations performed from a personal computer to a running programmable controller CPU (Program
change when a programmable controller CPU is RUN, forced input output operation, operating status change such as
RUN-STOP switching, and remote control operation) must be executed after the manual has been carefully read and
the safety has been ensured.
When changing a program while a programmable controller CPU is RUN, it may cause a program corruption in some
operating conditions. Fully understand the precautions described in GX Works2 Version 1 Operating Manual
(Common) before use.
● The positioning test functions of OPR, JOG, inching or positioning data for QD75/LD75 positioning module must be
executed with the programmable controller set to STOP after the manual has been carefully read and the safety has
been ensured. Specially when executing the function on the network system, ensure the safety thoroughly since the
machinery whose operation cannot be checked by an operator may be activated. The operation failure may cause the
injury or machine damage.
● The online operations performed on the intelligent function module such as data writing to flash ROM must be
executed after the operations of the external devices have been carefully considered and the safety has been
ensured.

● Switch setting
The switch setting of the intelligent function module is applied to "Switch Setting" on the <<I/O Assignment>> tab of the
PLC parameter.
● Changing the positioning data display range
The display range of the positioning data can be changed by the following setting.
Select [Tool] ⇒ [Options] ⇒ "Intelligent Function Module" ⇒ "QD75/LD75 Type Positioning", and set the setting for
"Display Specification of Positioning Data".
If the display range is enlarged by setting "Display Specification of Positioning Data", it takes longer time to display the
positioning data editing window.
When positioning data No. 101 and above are not necessary, select "Data No. 1 to 100".
● Display when mismatches of data assignment exist between PLC parameters and intelligent function module
data
When mismatches of data assignment exist between the I/O assignment setting of the PLC parameter and the
intelligent function module data, the icon on the Project view is displayed as shown below.
Even after a module is added by clicking the
button on the <<I/O Assignment>> tab of the PLC parameter,
the icon on the Project view is displayed as shown below by clicking the
button on the <<I/O Assignment>>
tab, and the I/O assignment setting becomes incorrect status.
<Normal display>
<Duplicate display>
If the added module is not necessary, delete it from the Project view.
● Opening project data which contain modules not supported by version of GX Works2 being used
When project data which contain an intelligent function module not supported by version of GX Works2 being used are
opened, "Reserved Module" is displayed on the tree of the Project view.
It cannot be edited, displayed, or printed, however, it can be saved in the project. In addition, its intelligent function
module parameters can be written to the programmable controller CPU.
(Example of display on the Project view)
● Adding modules to project data that contain modules not supported by version of GX Works2 being used
A module not supported by version of GX Works2 being used is regarded as the one uses single slot, even if it uses
multiple slots. Therefore, the setting of I/O assignment may be duplicated when a module is added to project data
where unsupported modules exist.
In this case, set the I/O assignment settings on the <<I/O Assignment>> tab of PLC parameter again.

QD75/LD75 Positioning Module
This section explains the operations of the intelligent function module tools related to the QD75/LD75
positioning module.
CAUTION
● The positioning test functions of OPR, JOG, inching or positioning data for QD75/LD75 positioning module must be
executed with the programmable controller set to STOP after the manual has been carefully read and the safety has been
ensured. Specially when executing the function on the network system, ensure the safety thoroughly since the machinery
whose operation cannot be checked by an operator may be activated. The operation failure may cause the injury or
machine damage.
Ensure the high-speed line condition as much as possible by such as stopping other monitoring functions during
execution, and connecting the personal computer and the CPU module directly with USB.
Since the stop request from GX Works2 to the positioning module is delayed depending on the transmission speed, the
stop of the motor connected to the positioning module may be delayed.
● Error occurrence on positioning module with error code 103 at positioning test execution
Refer to Point in Section 3.5.2.

● CPU device
When a CPU device is specified as the data storage area, the Q series C24N/L series C24 module performs the read/
write CPU device process.
If the total length of variables used in a packet exceeds 1920 bytes, 'read CPU device process'/'write CPU device
process' of the Q series C24N/L series C24 module needs to be performed more than once, and the processing time
might be longer.
● Intelligent function module device (buffer memory)
High-speed protocol processing is available because a Intelligent function module device (buffer memory) is not
affected by the sequence scan of a programmable controller CPU.
● Execution of a protocol including a Non-conversion Variable or Conversion Variable
When executing a protocol including a Non-conversion Variable or Conversion Variable, do not change the value of a
CPU device specified as a variable during execution of the dedicated instruction.

Workaround when the Q series C24N/L series C24 module detects a
protocol setting data error
The settings of editable protocols may not be correct when the Q series C24N/L series C24 module
detects a protocol setting data error after the protocol settings are written to the module.
In such case, correct the protocol settings according to the following procedure and rewrite them to the
module.
Operation
1. Confirm the protocol number, packet number, and element number of the detected error
in the protocol setting data error information (buffer memory 4086H to 4089H) of the Q
series C24N/L series C24 module.
2. Confirm whether or not the following conditions are satisfied in the packet setting in
which the error has been detected.
When any elements of No. 1 and any elements of No. 2 described in the following table are in
the same packet, No. 1 must be placed before No. 2.
No.
Setting
• Conversion Variable (Fixed number of data, Fixed number of digits (1 to 10 digits), No sign character)
1
• Conversion Variable (Fixed number of data, Fixed number of digits (1 to 10 digits), Variable decimal point)
• Conversion Variable (Fixed number of data, Variable number of digits, Number of data is 1, Delimiter is comma
or space)
• Non-conversion Variable (Variable length)
• Conversion Variable (Variable number of data)
2
• Conversion Variable (Fixed number of data, Variable number of digits, Number of data is 1, No delimiter)
• Conversion Variable (Fixed number of data, Variable number of digits, Number of data is 2 or more)
• Non-verified Reception (Variable number of characters)
3. Modify the protocol settings, and rewrite them to the module.
● Settings which may cause a 'protocol setting data error'
A protocol setting data error may occur when any of the following data are set and written to the Q series C24N module
with the serial number of which the first five digits are '10122'.
Element type
Setting
• "Sign" is 'Signed'
Conversion Variable
• "Number of Decimals" is 1 to 9 or 'Variable Point'
• "Delimiter" is 'Comma' or 'Space'
Non-verified
Reception
• "Data Length" is '0' (variable number of characters)
● Execution of write to module function during execution of CPRTCL instruction
An error may occur when the protocol setting data is written to a module during execution of the CPRTCL instruction.
● Data not to be written to module
The following data cannot be written to a module. Save these data in a protocol setting file.
• Manufacturer
• Packet Name
• Type, Version, Explanation in the protocol detailed setting
