FC6A - WindEDIT Lite Messages in this topic - RSS

Hi all,

I installed the Android app and I made the connection with a PLC on my home network.
This all works fine.

Now the problem:

One of my customers for whom I build electrical cabinets with IDEC FC6A, wants to be able some
settings like timer preset values etc.
So I thought of WindEDIT Lite.
Those PLC's are in a cabinet as standalone.

So, my idea was to connect via a mini router/acces point to the PLC

I bought the mine router TP Link TLWR802N
I made the connection from the TP to the PLC and tried to connect.
But this didn't work (time out occur's)
The I putted a switch between the router and the PLC.
I didn't work neither

Then I connected the switch to the home network.
Now the connection with the PLC works.
When I remove the internet connection, everything continues to work.
But when I power off the router and put it on again the connection is broke until I
plug in the internet cable again.

Does WindEDIT Lite always need an internet connection to connect to a PLC

Any help is appreciated.

It should work fine as within a local network setup. It may be that the FC6A "Network Settings" is set to DHCP and not static and there is no server to assign the PLC an address.

WindEDIT Lite works very well. The main challenge with remote support is loading register values in bulk.

This question is for IDEC support: Is there a possibility that a modification to the app can be made to download data register values and do the same function as DataFile Manager?

Call http://IP_WebPage/system/custom_monitor.html and use a DR. In the Programm move the DR to the Timer.

Hello ChrisD,
I have done the test with a WavLink AP/Repeater, and this is working without an internet connection.
I have done the next steps.
- Configured the Wifi AP with a PC IP = (default) and set a password on the Wifi
(this IP address must be outside the IP pool you normally use, so no internet connection)
- connected the ethernet cable of Wifi AP to PLC ethernet port
On PLC with WindLDR
- Network Settings IP =
- Access Control - Enable access control for App - Configure - General : New user (user1 & psw)
- Access from App : allow access PLCfromApp & Read/Write
- send program to PLC

In WindEDT lite
- set IP address for ethernet connection
- added Connection Account (user1 & psw)
- pushed on the connection button
I hope this can help. Maybe the TPLINK is the cause.
Best regards,
