The Mitsubishi QJ71E71 is an ethernet module that can be used to communicate with a Mitsubishi Q-series PLC from an external application. The default setting is however to deny write requests when the PLC is in run mode. In order for external applications to make changes to device registers in the PLC this setting needs to be changed.
The QJ71E71 can easily be configured to allow write requests from external applications during run mode and this is how you do it using GX Works2:
Data communication with the QJ71E71 is carried out using the MELSEC Communication Protocol (MC Protocol) using either UDP or TCP. MC Protocol supports communication in both binary and ASCII formats.
