Version The change contents Update
Ver.7.2
Rev.05
Improvement:
  1. The deletion command of the I/O drawing data in CPU was added.
Bug Fix: 1.I/O drawing Editor
  1. I/O drawing Editor
    (1)The memory is remarkably occasionally consumed by a specific operation.
    (2)Figure cannot occasionally be smoothly moved.
    (3)When work to make new I/O drawing is canceled, PCwin is downed.
  2. Global jump of [FB inside monitor], neither [Search] nor [Jump] operates correctly when jump destinations are other program's FB inside.
  3. Label search is not correctly occasionally searched.
  4. [Drawing Style Print]-[SFC Seat]:[Starting page No.] is 0 and push the [OK] button, the alert message is continuously displayed.
  5. English of the [Link Parameter Setting]:[DLNK-M2]-[Slave]-[Transferred bytes setup] is not correct.(English only)
  6. The project name of the PCwin title bar might not be displayed.
  7. In PC2/L2(initial version), when the circuit is monitored, "Undefined command" error is detected.
  8. After making Step-ST9999 by SFC editor, Next ST-No. becomes 10000 if the SFC property is opened, and becomes an error.
  9. [The SFC program deletion confirmation] Dialog is displayed before the state of CPU is confirmed when Writing during RUN.

Bug Fix
  1. When comment data is done in import, the comment on SFC might be lost.
  2. When comment data is written to CPU, the FB library comment data might be lost.(It will not influence on the machine facility.)

Ver.7.2
Rev.02
Change of PCwin Installer
It was necessary to have input the company name and the user-name to the PCwin installer up to now.From this version, the input of the company name, the user-name, and the serial number was needed.
<IMPORTANT>
If the serial number is not input, PCwin cannot be installed. Please input the serial number which is on the back side of the CD-ROM case.


Improvement:
  1. The following dialogs saved the display position. SFC property dialog, Ladder property dialog, SFC search dialog, Ladder search dialog, and Contact table dialog

  2. The batch change of the function operand has been improved. Example:In the case of change D01L from D00L to D02L D00L and D01L were change targets up to now. D00L, D00H, D00W, and D01L became change targets from this version.
  3. When the ladder is monitored, the display format of the function operand is switched.The display format is switched to one of the decimal number, the hexadecimal number, and octal numbers.
  4. The sampling of a 1 scan unit became possible in the time chart. Object operation mode: PC3JG separate, Sampling point: 64points, Sampling scan: 6000scan
  5. The address which had been searched in the point of contact table before was saved.
Bug Fix:
  1. When the ladder is printed, the bookmark is lost.
  2. Jumps from Ladder to the I/O Drawing. Ladder window returns to an default size when returning to Ladder.
  3. The comment might be garbled in the Comment Box dialog.
  4. The program is written with PCwin Ver.6. After that, when writing a [Program1+Comment] in PCwin Ver.7, an error is sometimes displayed with "The setting of the language of the current project is different from the CPU."
  5. When the comment list is printed, all GXY/GM is not printed.
  6. Even if the edge is added on the ladder, an effective address is not automatically occasionally allocated.
  7. The circuit might break when the edited circuit is converted by a OR(vertical line) of multi coil circuit position. Moreover, it is likely to become an error in the program check.
  8. The coil to which the input condition does not consist might be output in the ladder circuit block.(It might be occurred in combined of the OR divergence and the extended address. )
  9. When "It overwrites the comment data of the file.(Confirmation message's there being)" is selected by the import of the comment file, import cannot be done.
  10. When the SFC chart is printed, the block number might not be printed when EK is used for AQ.
  11. When the program check is done without exchange after the deletion of the circuit line, the block thereafter might not be correctly deleted.
'06.02

  3. The comment on the ladder cursor of P2 and P3 might not be displayed in the statusbar or Comment Box.
  4. The comment on the sub-process step in the SFC sub-process is not displayed.When the project file is saved, the above comment data is lost.
  5. In the FB inside monitor, display of the indirect timer's set value is not correct.
'05.10
Ver.7.1
Rev.02

  3. When FB inside monitor, the comment cannot be found even if searching. (P2,P3)
  4. When FB inside monitor, the tag allocated to the address of GX(GY) and GM is not displayed.
  5. The edge address might overlap when the FB library editor allocates the edge address automatically.
  6. When "#" is used to tag's comment, the FB library editor deletes the character string since "#".
  7. CPU I/O drawing data is written by PCwin which does not have Option3(I/O Drawing). At this time, when command [CPU]-[Write Data]-[ALL Program+Libraly+Parameter+Comment] is written, CPU I/O drawing data is deleted.
  8. The direct address is specified for the action in the step of SFC. The SFC program does"SET/RESET" by "AQ=S or AQ=R". At this time, SET/RESET does not operate correctly occasionally.
