Professional designs. Maximized efficiency. Intuitive operations.
All made possible by GT Works3.

Support debugging


Since the operation of the project data can be confirmed on the personal computer, the program can be efficiently debugged while making changes on the screen. Even if hardware is not available, the operations can be confirmed with a personal computer and sequence programs. The screen images can be printed and saved, and easily used when creating specifications and operation manuals.

  • * GX Works3, GX Works2, GX Simulator, or MT Works2 is required separately. (It varies depending on the CPU to simulate.)

Procedure: [Tools] → [Simulator] → [Activate]
Shortcut key: Ctrl + F10

Data verification

Verify the project data and check the results for each screen/object.
From the Verify Result window, you can jump to the target object or can narrow down results by items such as the screen type. This function enables you to check differences and modify the data quickly even if the project data includes many screens.

Data verification
  • ➊ Verify Project (verifying the project being edited against one in a personal computer) and GOT Verification (verifying the project being edited against one in the GOT) are available.
  • ➋ Export of verified results and refinement by items such as screen type are possible.
  • ➌ Double-click on an error or warning line to jump to the corresponding object.
  • ➍ The background color of a row varies according to the type of a difference.
    The item exists in both projects and the data are not matched
    The item exists only in the source project
    The item exists only in the destination project
