Converting Targets GE Fanuc Controller

You can exchange goals from one family type of GE Fanuc Controller to another with Logic Developer PLC. For instance, you can get the logic written and Hardware Configuration for a Controller Series 90™-70 and exchange to use on a PACSystems RX7i. Nevertheless, goal conversions are irreparable; when blocks of logic are erased during a conversion, they can not be reinstated. It is suggested that you create your project backup before converting a target. There may also be logic implementation differences when translating an application from one family type of GE Fanuc Controller to another, particularly a Series 90-70 is engaged in the conversion. You have to authenticate the execution of application before deployment into an environment of production.

Below is the step to convert a target
1. Click the right mouse button a target and select Properties in the tab of Project the in Navigator. The Inspector shows the properties of target.
2. Select Family in the Inspector.
3. Select the new GE Fanuc Controller Family you desire to convert the target from the list.

There are 2 types of target conversions.
1. A basic
The conversion does as below:
• Slips all the modules configuration from the genuine HWC (Hardware Configuration) and manage the family’s default destination of HWC with a CPU and a single power supply.
• Removes or adds components of target, logic blocks, or logic programs.
• Updates the variables of system.

2. An enhanced
The conversion does as below:
• Substitutes a power supply with the family’s default destination of power supply.
• Keeps the CPU parameters settings universal to the destination and original CPUs when the settings are supported in the destination family.
• Keeps all the source modules and the parameter settings of module that are supported by the destination family.
• Modules of Ethernet settings of non-supported to modules of Ethernet are applied to arrange the Ethernet daughterboard destination or Ethernet modules default.
• Converts unsupported the racks expansion to the nearby alike.
• Adds or removes logic programs, target components, or logic blocks.
• Revises the variables of system, comprise the references of fault locating.
• Shows a report of conversion in the InfoViewer.

The destination target capabilities may be dissimilar from those original targets. Be carefull to observe the report conversion when it is existing. Confirm the project and test it methodically before installing it in production.
