Technical Tip – GOT2000 multiple connections

Setting up GOT2000 HMI with multiple connections over Ethernet.

GOT2000 & GOTSimple HMIs have the capability to setup multiple connections with two different controllers e.g. two different PLC platforms, and is also capable of having up to 64 stations on a single channel. This is achieved by having 2 channel connections.

The technical tip PDF shows the example of setting up FX series PLC on Channel 1 and Q series PLC on Channel 2. Although these two platforms are both Mitsubishi, they are both different in functionality and programming methods.

In other terms if a manufacturing company is working with two different product brands one HMI can communicate to both of them as long as the HMI has a suitable driver installed for that product brand.

Technical Tip – Mitsubishi GOT2000 Screen Passwords

Setting up screen passwords for GOT2000

 

 

See below the 1st of many technical tips we shall be posting over the coming months.

  • Go to: Common > GOT Environmental setting > Security
  • Click on: Level
  • Set Security Level Device: for example ‘D100’ Register
  • Set Security Level Password: You can set multiple passwords for hierarchy of access

got 1 pass

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In this example the password is ‘1234’.  Once these are filled click on ‘APPLY and OK’

The next stage is to apply a security level to a specific screen(s) accordingly.

In this example base screen 2 is set to level security 1 therefore a keypad will be prompt as soon

as you try to access screen 2. You can access these settings in screen property.

Important Information

 When the GOT HMI screen is running and you have entered the password in the prompt keypad the password will remain in the set data register until it has been reset. A suitable way to reset the data register is to use a switch to reset the data register or use a switch to go back to main screen (screen1) and also to reset the data register as the same time.

Example: Switch for screen switch and changing D100 back to ‘0’

Once this menu is completed click ‘OK’. Your password screen has now been completed.

Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of science that includes a combination of mechanical engineering, electronics and Control Systems and despite being around for more than 50 Years, today we are seeing a real time need to connect Industry. To ensure that we continue to move with current industry trends CDL has brought together a few of their strongest Manufacturers at the Manufacturing Technology Centre in Coventry where they were able to  showcase new products and integrated solutions that combined, strenghtens their systems with Industry 4.0 and The Internet of Things placing them firmly at the front of their mind.

The Mechatronics workshop was centered around the Mitsubishi Automation Platform, and supported by key manufacturers such as SMC, SICK and SMAC. Each manufacturer presented live presentations of their showcased lineup and performed in-house product demonstrations along with Q&A session at the end of each section.

Manufacturers Product line ups included:

Mitsubishi: IQF & IQR Simple Motion and Robot,A800 GOT Integration, Smart Condition.Monitoring & Guided Operator Solutions.

SMC: Electric Actuators & Grippers.

SMAC: Precision Electric Actuators and the famous SMAC actuator hand

SICK: Inspection/Vision cameras and Scanners.
In addition to the live presentations an open exhibition area was available, where attendees could discuss individual systems and products in greater depth with numerous application specialists.

Introduced in November 2013 at the SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg, it replaces the present GOT1000 HMI range, but remains backwardly compatible, its panel sizes are identical and existing programmes can be imported.

These enhanced HMIs deliver genuine perspective on the automation process and provide a platform to solve the typical production problems that drive down OEE. With their enhanced functionality, these HMIs provide additional features that will help to reduce downtime, enable fast recovery from simple errors, increase availability and boost production efficiency.

Having inbuilt Ethernet communications means users can operate the GOT2000 remotely from a PC (VNC Server) or even from a tablet or portable terminal. An MES interface option enables the GOT2000 to transmit data collected from PLCs and other automation devices directly to higher level system databases, eliminating the need for gateway PCs or complex programming.

The GT27 series which are the successors to the GT16 range are characterised by an intuitive operating concept with multi-touch function and gesture control. The HMIs from the GT23 series offer a balanced price/performance ratio.

Advanced functionality

The GOT2000 series is designed to optimise operator control and monitoring of device and line status.  The increased performance includes, advanced functions, seamless connectivity to other automation devices and intuitive programming and operation. The high quality graphics of GOT2000 series offer crisp well defined images whether enlarged or reduced in size, and it supports a library of outline fonts and multi-language formats. Selected models also feature tablet-like multi-touch gestures, and will also worked with gloved hands.

Mitsubishi Electric is now offering its GOT 2000 IP67f without a USB connection on the white front panel for the first time in direct response to requirements from the food industry.  GOT2000 includes connectivity with most popular automation equipment including Siemens and Allen Bradley.
