Preface

Thank you for purchasing the Pro-face Graphic Logic Controller Factory Gateway

Series (hereby referred to as “Factory Gateway” or “Factory Gateway unit”).

This unit is designed to be connected to an External Device (PLC, etc.) that do not have their own Ethernet interface, via the Pro-Server system’s Ethernet connection. Pro-

Server allows the Factory Gateway unit to communicate with a host-level PC without specialized programming. This allows data collection and sharing of data with other PLC units.

Also, Pro-Server’s Add-on software, GP-Viewer and GP-Web, allow you to access factory floor data from a remote PC, and even perform maintenance.

In this manual’s examples, the Mitsubishi MELSEC-AnA Series PLC is used whenever possible, connected in a one-to-one relationship with a Factory Gateway

Wiring Cautions

3.2.1

Connecting the Power Cord

WARNINGS

To avoid an electric shock, be sure the power cord is unplugged from the power supply when connecting the power terminals to the Factory Gateway unit.

The Factory Gateway-SE41-24V uses a DC 24V power supply. If the power supply is outside of the rated voltage range, both the power supply and the Factory Gateway unit can be damaged.

The Factory Gateway unit is not equipped with a power switch. Therefore, be sure to connect a breaker-type power switch to the Factory Gateway unit’s power cord.

• Be sure to connect the FG terminal to earth. Otherwise, electrical shock may occur if the unit breaks down.

• To prevent the Ring Terminals from short-circuiting when the terminal block attachment screws are loosened, use sleeve-type Ring Terminals.

• When the FG terminal is connected, be sure that the wire is grounded.

Not grounding the Factory Gateway unit will result in excessive noise.

Use your country’s applicable standard for grounding.

• Whenever possible, use thick wires (2mm 2 max.) for power lines, and twist the exposed wire ends when connecting the Ring Terminals.

• Use the following crimp-on type Ring Terminals.

3.2.2

Connecting the Power Supply

• When supplying power to the Factory

Gateway unit, separate the input/output and operation unit lines (see Diagram 1).

• To increase the noise resistance quality of the power cord, twist each power wire before attaching the Ring Terminal.

• The power supply cord must not be bundled or positioned close to main circuit lines (high voltage, high current), or input/output signal lines (see Diagram

2).

• Connect a lightning surge absorber (see

Diagram 3) to deal with power surges.

• To avoid excess noise, make the power cord as short as possible.

Grounding

CAUTION

Do NOT use common grounding, since it can lead to an accident or machine breakdown.

Connect the

FG

terminal found on the back of the

Factory Gateway

to an exclusive ground (diagram A).

(A) Exclusive Grounding (BEST)

• Make sure that the grounding resistance is less than 100

.

• The FG and SG lines are connected internally in the Factory Gateway.

• The grounding wire should have a cross-sectional area of at least

2 mm 2 . Create the grounding point as close to the Factory Gateway unit as possible, and keep the wire as short as possible. Replace thin wire with a thicker wire, and place it in a duct.

If exclusive grounding is not possible, use a common connection point (diagram B).

(B) Common Grounding (OK)

(C) Common Grounding (Not OK)

If the equipment does not function properly when grounded, disconnect the ground wire from the FG terminal.

3.2.4

I/O Signal Line Cautions

• To help prevent noise and interference problems, separate all communication lines from power lines by placing them in a separate duct.

• If different wires must be placed in the same duct, separate them with an earthed/ grounded divider.

3.3

Tool Connector

A data transfer cable can be attached to the Factory Gateway unit’s tool connector.

The location of the Factory Gateway unit’s tool connector is shown in the following diagram.

4.1.2 Problem Solving

The following data explains possible solutions for Factory Gateway unit related problems.

Connecting power causes the unit to initialize memory (PWR LED red -> orange)

CAUSE: Dip Switch #4 is turned ON.

SOLUTION: Turn Dip Switch #4 OFF and restart the Factory Gateway unit.

Unable to Transfer Data

CAUSE 1: Dip Switch #3 is turned ON, setting the unit in transfer mode.

SOLUTION: Turn Dip Switch #3 OFF and restart the Factory Gateway unit.

CAUSE 2: The protocol transferred to the Factory Gateway unit is incorrect.

SOLUTION: Check the Pro-Studio Status Monitor to confirm the type of PLC the Factory Gateway is connected to. Send new protocol if necessary.

CAUSE 3: The Ethernet type’s protocol has been sent.

SOLUTION: The Factory Gateway is not designed to work with the Ethernet protocol. Send the correct protocol to the Factory Gateway from the

GP-PRO/PBIII for Windows software, using the forced setup.

CAUSE 4: The Subnet Mask and the Default Gateway have been initialized.

SOLUTION: When Disp Switch #4 is used to initialize the unit, the Subnet Mask and the Default Gateway are also initialized. To use these items again, resend that data from Pro-Studio.

For information about the Sub-net Mask and the default Factory

Gateway settings,refer to

Factory Gateway Configuration Tool Operation Manual

Also, the port number will revert to 8000 after initialization. Thus, if the Factory Gateway unit tries to use a port other than 8000, data transfer cannot be performed.

(Use of Port No. 8000 is recommended.)

4–4

Factory Gateway Series User Manual

Chapter 4 – Troubleshooting

GP-Viewer Screens Cannot be Displayed

CAUSE: When data is sent from the Factory Gateway Configuration Tool, screen data is deleted.

SOLUTION: GP-Viewer screen data includes protocol data as well. However, if the Factory Gateway Configuration Tool software is used to change the Factory Gateway unit’s protocol, the new protocol in the Factory Gateway unit will be different from the previous protocol.

To prevent a possible data/protocol type conflict, however, the Factory Gateway Configuration Tool automatically deletes all existing Factory Gateway screen data prior to sending a new protocol. This, however, means that there is now no data for

GP-Viewer to read out and display.

To prevent this type of problem, when using Pro-Viewer to view

Factory Gateway data be sure to always use GP-PRO/PRIII to send both screen and protocol data to the Factory Gateway unit.

4.2

Periodic Check Points

To keep your Factory Gateway unit in its best condition, inspect the following points periodically.

Operation Environment

• Is the operating temperature within the allowable range (0

°

C to 55

°

C)?

• Is the operating humidity within the specified range (10%RH to 90%RH, wet bulb temperature of 39

°

C or less)?

• Is the operating atmosphere free of corrosive gasses?

Electrical Specifications

• Is the input voltage (DC 19.2V to DC 28.8V) appropriate?

Related Items
