GOT features
(1) With its 256 colors, the color screen provides a sharp, clear display that yields a
vivid, top quality image.
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.

There are two types of recipes: recipe function and advanced recipe function.
The advanced recipe function, an extended function of the recipe function, is used
only on the GT15.
Example: The differences between advanced recipe function and recipe function
settings
A recipe setting sets for the destination to which the data is written
(target device name), written value, and writing timing for the PLC CPU.
The advanced recipe function and recipe function are different in the
ways of making the settings.

Point
How to check whether the recipe function is being executed
While a recipe is being processed, no monitoring and key inputs for other objects
as well as other operations defined in the recipe are processed.
In such a case, whether the recipe function is being executed can be checked
using the system information.
(1) System information
The system information can be used to control the GOT operations such as
clearing the screen or disabling key inputs from the controller connected to
the GOT or to notify the status of the GOT to the controller depending on the
status of the devices being used.
Refer to the GT Designer2 Version2 Screen Design Manual for details on the
system information.
(2) Checking whether the recipe is being executed
By placing a lamp that monitors the recipe in-processing signal on the GOT
screen, the recipe function can be checked if it is being executed.

Script Function
Appendix 2.1 Script Function
This is the function capable of controlling the GOT display with its own program.
Controlling the GOT display with the GOT side script drastically reduces the load on
the system side (e.g. PLC CPU, microcomputer) display.
(1) Various screen controls by GOT alone
Using the script functions enables the following operations that could not be
achieved by GOT alone.
(a) Combinations with various object functions
• A single lamp represents multiple bit device statuses.
• A specific part is displayed if any of multiple bit devices is ON, and is
erased if they are all OFF.
• At the same time as a numeric value is input, a part indicating "Already
input" is pasted to the place adjacent to the input value display frame.
• A single touch switch can make multiple operations corresponding to
multiple statuses.
• The troubleshooting screen is displayed automatically at the same time
that the alarm list (system alarm) detects an error.
(b) Processing of complicated arithmetic
• A polynomial operation can be more simply represented on a single line as
compared with ladder program.
Ladder program
Script
[w:D5] = ([w:D1] - [w:D2])/100+[w:D3]-[w:D4])-100;
• Not only four fundamental operations but also various application arithmetic
functions, such as trigonometric and exponential functions, can be used
optionally.
(c) Expanded applicable fields
• The date is calculated by entering the start date (month, day and year) and
the days elapsed from that date.
What is the date 345 days after May 20, 2000? → April 30, 2001
• The day of the week is calculated by entering the corresponding date
(month, day and year).
Which day of the week falls on February 21, 1961? → Tuesday
(2) Easy system maintenance
As the necessary programs can be created and assigned to GOT with the script
functions in advance, the system side handles only machine control programs,
facilitating system maintenance.
(3) Easy language programming
Script can be created with entry-level programming knowledge, as it is C
language-like program.
Appendix 13
(4) Compatibility with commercially-available programming editors
Commercially-available text editors (e.g. Microsoft® Windows® -standard
memo pad, Wordpad) are applicable for programming to improve program
productivity.
(5) Execution condition selectable for each script
Any of various conditions (ordinary, periodic, bit Rise/Fall, during bit ON/OFF,
periodic during bit ON/OFF) can be selected as a trigger to execute each script,
which enables script execution scheduling.
In addition to the above conditions, an object script can be executed in
synchronization with object input/display and touching of a touch switch.
(6) Fully useful debugging functions
Since a script is C language-like program, the general C language compiler or
debugger (e.g. Microsoft® Visual C++) can be used for its simulation by making
slight corrections.
This is effective for debugging a complicated script that includes many control
statements.
The system monitor function is useful for hardware debugging using GOT.
The test and device monitor functions are available to check conditional branching
in a script.
By monitoring the GOT special registers (GS), error information and a script in
execution can be easily confirmed.
(7) Enables checking of the syntax for the created scripts
The syntax for the created scripts can be checked using GT Designer2 before it is
executed on GOT, which increases the programming efficiency.
(8) Enables conversion of the script language created by Digital Electronics
Corporation’s application.
The script language (D script/global D script) created by Digital electric
Corporation’s application can be converted to that for GOT and executed on GOT.
Remarks
(1) Execution condition setting and syntax validity check
Make "execution condition setting" and "syntax validity check" on GT
Designer2 at the time of monitor screen creation.
Refer to the following section for details.
→ GT Designer2 Version2 Screen Design Manual
(2) Converting script language created by Digital Electronics Corporation
Convert the script language created by Digital Electronics Corporation using
GT
Converter2.
Refer to the following for details on convertible data and conversion method.
→ GT Converter2 Version2
Operating Manual
Appendix 14
(9) Script functions types
There are three types of script functions as below.
1)
Project script
(a) Target of setting/action
Project script means the script function that is set/operated for the project
as a whole.
(b) GOT status that enables execution of a project script
A project script can be executed any time while the GOT is online.
(c) Script execution condition
A script is executed when the condition set for each script is established.
(d) Allowable number of scripts
Up to 256 scripts can be set for a project.
Point
(1) Application of project scripts
Since a project script operates for a project as a whole, it can be conveniently
used in such as the case shown below.
Example: The troubleshooting screen is displayed automatically at the same
time that the alarm list (system alarm) detects an error.
(2) Precautions for setting a project script
Devices monitored by project scripts are always operating.
Therefore, if the number of monitor target devices increases, display on the
monitor screen will be delayed.
Appendix 15
2)
Screen script
(a) Target of setting/action
Screen script means the script function that is set/operated for the
screens indicated below.
• Base Screen * 1, * 2
• Window Screen * 1, * 2
(Superimpose window 1, Superimpose window 2, Overlap window 1,
Overlap window 2)
* 1 The called screen by the set overlay screen function is also the target of a screen script.
* 2 The screen displayed by the parts display function is not the target of a screen script.
(b) GOT status that enables execution of a screen script
An object script function can be executed when four conditions below are
all satisfied.
• GOT is online.
• The target screen is displayed.
(c) Script execution condition
A script is executed when the condition is established.
(d) Allowable number of scripts
Up to 256 scripts can be set in a screen (including the called screens by
the set overlay screen function)
Point
Precautions for setting a screen script
If the number of monitor devices of screen scripts increases, display on the
monitor screen will be delayed.
3)
Object script (GT15 only)
(a) Target of setting/action

(b) GOT status that enables execution of a script function
An object script function can be executed when four conditions below are
all satisfied.
• GOT is online.
• The screen where the placed target object is displayed.
• The target object is displayed/operating.
• Target object operating is not restricted by the security function.
Appendix 16
(c) Script function execution condition
The script is executed in synchronization with object input/display and
touching of a touch switch in addition to when the condition is
established.
(d) Allowable number of script functions
For the numerical input and the ASCII input, the input object script and
the display object script can be set to an object.
For an object other than the numerical input and the ASCII input, either
of the input object script or the display object script can be set to on
object.
Point
Precautions for setting an object script
If the number of monitor devices of object scripts increases, display on the monitor
screen will be delayed.
Appendix 17

Point
Precautions for data transfer
(1) Memory card
When downloading/installing the various types of data (Boot OS, OS, project
data, special data) into a memory card, do not store any other data into that
memory card.
The other data is all erased at the time of download/installation.
Storing the Boot OS data and the other data (OS, project data, and special
data) in the same memory card should also be avoided.
(2) Data stored in GOT
When the Boot OS and OS are installed, the project data stored in the
project folder in the GOT is deleted.
When it is necessary to back up the project data, upload the data to the
personal computer or memory card (CF Card) before installing the OS.
(3) Precautions for installing Boot OS and OS
Boot OS/OS installation cannot be interrupted.
Note that the GOT may become non-functional if one of the following is
performed during installation:
• Removing the CF card
• Powering off the GOT
• Pressing the reset button of the GOT

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 is.
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 (for example, 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

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

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. (for example, 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,.
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.
Appendix 72
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.

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.
Appendix 73
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

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.
Appendix 75
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 temperatures. (See below.)
Display section: 0 to 50ºC
Other than display section: 0 to 55ºC
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 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.
Appendix 76
With parts movement, it is also possible to remain that the parts displayed just before the
movement.
Such display is called parts locus display.
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.
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.
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.
RST (rese)t
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.
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.
Appendix 77
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 displaycan be switched to ON by touching any on the screen.
In this case, the touch switoh beling pressed does not operate.
Screen switching
This switches between the GOT base screen and window screen.
To switch between the screens, the word device for base and or window screen switching
must be set.
In addition to the PLC word devices, GOT dedicated devices (GD) in the GOT can be also
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 over time, one bit.
Serial communication unit
The module that provides the functions for connecting with the PLC and a computer (GOT or
personal computer) and 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.
Appendix 78
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- .
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.
Appendix 79
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.
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

style or pattern foreground color
Tool bar (Communications): A group of functions for data transger 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 writin 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.
Appendix 80
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
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 tached, the window screen is moved so that its top left coordinate is at the
location you 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.
