SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
(Always read these instructions before using this product.)
Before using this product, thoroughly read this manual and the relevant manuals introduced in this manual
and pay careful attention to safety and handle the products properly.
The precautions given in this manual are concerned with this product. For the safety precautions of the
system, refer to the User's Manual for each controller.
In this manual, the safety precautions are ranked as "
WARNING" and "
CAUTION".
WARNING
Indicates that incorrect handling may cause hazardous conditions,
resulting in death or severe injury.
CAUTION
Indicates that incorrect handling may cause hazardous conditions,
resulting in miner or moderate injury or property damage.
Note that the
CAUTION level may lead to serious consequences according to the circumstances.
Always follow the precautions of both levels because they are important for personal safety.
Please save this manual to make it accessible when required and always forward it to the end user.
[Design Instructions]
WARNING
● When data change, program change, or status control is performed from a personal computer to a running 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 controller, 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 controller (Program change, operating status
change such as RUN-STOP switching, and remote control operation) have to be executed after the manual has been
carefully read and the safety has been ensured.
When changing a program while a controller is RUN, it may cause a program corruption in some operating conditions.
Fully understand the precautions described in the manuals and Help function of each controller before use.

MELSOFT iQ Works
MELSOFT iQ Works is an integrated engineering software product which includes GX Works2, MT Developer2, GT
Designer3, and RT ToolBox2.
While sharing design information such as system designs and programming in the whole control system, the
system designing efficiency and the programming efficiency are improved, and thus the total programming cost is
reduced.
This manual explains the system management method using MELSOFT Navigator.
Q series, L series, and FX series are supported in MELSOFT Navigator, however, this manual explains the
operations of Q series.

Improved project management efficiency
● Multiple project management using a workspace
Multiple project data (programmable controller projects, motion controller projects, GOT projects,
and robot controller projects) can be managed totally using a workspace.
Created date and modified date of each project can be confirmed with the project list.

Parameters, such as I/O assignment and network parameters, which require consistencies can be
set without opening related projects of each engineering software (GX Works2, MT Developer2,
and GT Designer3).
Parameters set to the project on CPU No. 1 can be utilized for the project on CPU No. 2 when
configuring multiple CPU system.

Improved programming efficiency using system labels
System labels are labels that can be used in any project within the workspace (within the
equipment configured in the network configuration diagram or module configuration diagram).
Programming (drawing) efficiency is improved by opening devices of programmable controller
projects and motion controller projects as system labels, and sharing them with multiple projects.
As the device assignment settings are changed in batch, device assignment changes are not
necessary on other projects or graphics.
For using system labels, refer to the following chapter.

To use system labels in iQ Platform supporting engineering environment MELSOFT iQ Works,
utilize system labels registered in MELSOFT Navigator from projects (Top-down design method),
or register global labels defined in projects as system labels (Bottom-up design method).

1.2 Features
Design system labels for accessing GOT or communicating between equipment after designing
network configuration in the upstream design.
In top-down design method, register system labels using MELSOFT Navigator, import them to
global labels of controller projects, and assign devices.

• Special block
Ethernet special function block (FX-ENET series)
• Special adapter
Ethernet communication special adapter (FX3U-ENET-ADP)
For FX series, special blocks and special adapters are mounted to a main unit which combines power supply,
CPU, and I/O module. However, the following blocks and units can not be mounted: special blocks and special
units which do not contain related project or configuration software, and extension blocks which do not support a
function to check power supply capacity and I/O points.
● Parameters of special adapters
The parameters of special adapters can be set on the Input Detailed Configuration Information window.
The setting content is reflected to the parameter of a programmable controller project by performing parameter
reflection. For details of the parameter settings, refer to the following section.
Section 3.6 Setting Parameters
● Displaying module list window
The model name of special blocks of FX series compatible with MELSOFT Navigator are displayed on the Module
