1. INTRODUCTION
•
•
The FX2N-4AD-TC analog block amplifies the signal from four thermocouple sensors (Type K or J) and
converts the data into 16 bit reading’s stored in the main unit. Both Centigrade (°C) and Fahrenheit
(°F) can be read.
Reading resolution is 0.4°C/0.72°F of Type K and 0.3°C/0.54°F of Type J.
The FX2N-4AD-TC can connected to the FX0N/FX1N/FX3G/FX2N/FX3U/FX2NC/FX3UC series
Programmable Controllers (PLC).
•
All data transfers and parameter settings are adjusted via software control of the FX2N-4AD-TC; by
use of the TO/FROM applied instructions in the PLC.
•
The FX2N-4AD-TC occupies 8 I/O points on the PLC expansion bus. The 8 I/O points can be allocated
from either inputs or outputs. The FX 2N-4AD-TC draws 30mA from the 5V rail of the main unit or
powered extension unit.
•
Thermocouples with the following specifications can be used: Type K (JIS C 1602-1995)

5.4 Installation location
This unit measures temperature according to the temperature difference between the temperature
measurement part (themocouple) and the terminal block. If this unit is installed at a place where the
temperature of the terminal block varies rapidly, a measuring error may occur. For this reason, the unit
should be installed at a place free from excessive temperature variation.

6.2 Status Information
In the program shown below, the FX2N-4AD-TC occupies the position of special block number 2 (that is
the third closest block to the PLC). A Type K thermocouple is used on CH1 and a Type J on CH2. CH3 and
CH4 are not used. The averaging count is four. The averaged values in degrees C of input channels CH1
and CH2 are stored respectively in data registers D0 and D1.
1) Buffer Memory BFM #28: Digital range error latch
BFM #29 b10(digital range error) is used to judge whether the measured temperature is within the
unit’s range.
BFM #28 latches the error status of each channel and can be used to check for thermocouple
disconnection.
When an error occurs the temperature data before the error is latched. If the measured value returns
to within valid limits the temperature data returns to normal operation. (Note: The error remains
latched in (BFM #28))
An error can be cleared by writing K0 to BFM #28 using the TO instruction or turning off the power.

9.2 Error checking
If the FX2N-4AD-TC special function block does not seem to operate normally, check the following items.
•
Check the status of the POWER LED.
Lit
:The extension cable is properly connected.
Otherwise :Check the connection of the extension cable.
•
Check the external wiring.
•
Check the status of the “24V” LED (top right corner of the FX 2N-4AD-TC).
Lit
:FX2N-4AD-TC is ON, 24V DC power source is ON.
Otherwise :Possible 24V DC power failure, if ON possible FX2N-4AD-TC failure.
•
Check the status of the “A/D” LED (top right corner of the FX2N-4AD-TC).
Lit
:A/D conversion is proceeding normally.
Otherwise :Check buffer memory #29 (error status). If any bits (b0, b2, b3) are ON, then this is why
the A/D LED is OFF.
10.EMC CONSIDERATIONS
Electromagnetic compatibility or EMC must be considered before using the FX2N-4AD-TC.
Mitsubishi recommend that the thermocouple sensors used, should be fitted with a form of seild or
screening as protection against EMC noise.
If some form of cable protection is used, the “Shield” must be terminated at the
as shown in chapter 2.

terminals
Because of the delicate nature of all analog signals, failure to take good EMC precautions could lead to
EMC noise induced errors; up to ±10% of actual values. This is an absolute worst case figure, users who
do take good precautions can expect operation within normal tolerances.
EMC considerations should include selection of good quality cables, good routing of those cables away
from potential noise sources.
Additionally it is recommended that signal averaging is used as this will reduce the effects of random noise
“spikes”.

When the number of temperature readings to be averaged is specified for BFMs #1 to #4, the
averaged data is stored in BFMs #5 to #8 (°C) and #13 to #16 (°F). Only the range 1 to 256 is valid for
the number of temperature readings to be averaged. If a value outside of this range is entered, a
default value of 8 is used.

6.2 Status Information
In the program shown below, the FX2N-4AD-TC occupies the position of special block number 2 (that is
the third closest block to the PLC). A Type K thermocouple is used on CH1 and a Type J on CH2. CH3 and
CH4 are not used. The averaging count is four. The averaged values in degrees C of input channels CH1
and CH2 are stored respectively in data registers D0 and D1.
1) Buffer Memory BFM #28: Digital range error latch
BFM #29 b10(digital range error) is used to judge whether the measured temperature is within the
unit’s range.
BFM #28 latches the error status of each channel and can be used to check for thermocouple
disconnection.
When an error occurs the temperature data before the error is latched. If the measured value returns
to within valid limits the temperature data returns to normal operation. (Note: The error remains
latched in (BFM #28))
An error can be cleared by writing K0 to BFM #28 using the TO instruction or turning off the power.

9.2 Error checking
If the FX2N-4AD-TC special function block does not seem to operate normally, check the following items.
•
Check the status of the POWER LED.
Lit
:The extension cable is properly connected.
Otherwise :Check the connection of the extension cable.
•
Check the external wiring.
•
Check the status of the “24V” LED (top right corner of the FX 2N-4AD-TC).
Lit
:FX2N-4AD-TC is ON, 24V DC power source is ON.
Otherwise :Possible 24V DC power failure, if ON possible FX2N-4AD-TC failure.
•
Check the status of the “A/D” LED (top right corner of the FX2N-4AD-TC).
Lit
:A/D conversion is proceeding normally.
Otherwise :Check buffer memory #29 (error status). If any bits (b0, b2, b3) are ON, then this is why
the A/D LED is OFF.
10.EMC CONSIDERATIONS
Electromagnetic compatibility or EMC must be considered before using the FX2N-4AD-TC.
Mitsubishi recommend that the thermocouple sensors used, should be fitted with a form of seild or
screening as protection against EMC noise.
If some form of cable protection is used, the “Shield” must be terminated at the
as shown in chapter 2.

terminals
Because of the delicate nature of all analog signals, failure to take good EMC precautions could lead to
EMC noise induced errors; up to ±10% of actual values. This is an absolute worst case figure, users who
do take good precautions can expect operation within normal tolerances.
EMC considerations should include selection of good quality cables, good routing of those cables away
from potential noise sources.
Additionally it is recommended that signal averaging is used as this will reduce the effects of random noise
“spikes”.

This step is the actual reading of the FX2N-4AD-TC input channels. It is essentially the
only program step which is needed. The "TO" instruction in this example, sets the input
channels, CH1 and CH2, to take the average reading of four samples.
The "FROM" instruction reads the average temperatures (BFM #5 and #6) for input
channels CH1 and CH2 of the FX2N-4AD-TC. If direct temperature readings are
required BFM #9 and #10 should be read instead, e.g.

1. INTRODUCTION
•
•
The FX2N-4AD-TC analog block amplifies the signal from four thermocouple sensors (Type K or J) and
converts the data into 16 bit reading’s stored in the main unit. Both Centigrade (°C) and Fahrenheit
(°F) can be read.
Reading resolution is 0.4°C/0.72°F of Type K and 0.3°C/0.54°F of Type J.
The FX2N-4AD-TC can connected to the FX0N/FX1N/FX3G/FX2N/FX3U/FX2NC/FX3UC series
Programmable Controllers (PLC).
•
All data transfers and parameter settings are adjusted via software control of the FX2N-4AD-TC; by
use of the TO/FROM applied instructions in the PLC.
•
The FX2N-4AD-TC occupies 8 I/O points on the PLC expansion bus. The 8 I/O points can be allocated
from either inputs or outputs. The FX 2N-4AD-TC draws 30mA from the 5V rail of the main unit or
powered extension unit.

6.2 Status Information
In the program shown below, the FX2N-4AD-TC occupies the position of special block number 2 (that is
the third closest block to the PLC). A Type K thermocouple is used on CH1 and a Type J on CH2. CH3 and
CH4 are not used. The averaging count is four. The averaged values in degrees C of input channels CH1
and CH2 are stored respectively in data registers D0 and D1.
1) Buffer Memory BFM #28: Digital range error latch
BFM #29 b10(digital range error) is used to judge whether the measured temperature is within the
unit’s range.
BFM #28 latches the error status of each channel and can be used to check for thermocouple
disconnection.
When an error occurs the temperature data before the error is latched. If the measured value returns
to within valid limits the temperature data returns to normal operation. (Note: The error remains
latched in (BFM #28))
An error can be cleared by writing K0 to BFM #28 using the TO instruction or turning off the power.

range error. (see below)
[Handling for digital range error latch]
FX 2N-4AD-TC has already started measuring operation when the PLC main unit's state becomes
RUN after turning on the power.
If unstability of the temperature value is expected because of noise just after turning on the power,
reset the error once by writing 'K0' to BFM #28.

9.2 Error checking
If the FX2N-4AD-TC special function block does not seem to operate normally, check the following items.
•
Check the status of the POWER LED.
Lit
:The extension cable is properly connected.
Otherwise :Check the connection of the extension cable.
•
Check the external wiring.
•
Check the status of the “24V” LED (top right corner of the FX 2N-4AD-TC).
Lit
:FX2N-4AD-TC is ON, 24V DC power source is ON.
Otherwise :Possible 24V DC power failure, if ON possible FX2N-4AD-TC failure.
•
Check the status of the “A/D” LED (top right corner of the FX2N-4AD-TC).
Lit
:A/D conversion is proceeding normally.
Otherwise :Check buffer memory #29 (error status). If any bits (b0, b2, b3) are ON, then this is why
the A/D LED is OFF.
10.EMC CONSIDERATIONS
Electromagnetic compatibility or EMC must be considered before using the FX2N-4AD-TC.
Mitsubishi recommend that the thermocouple sensors used, should be fitted with a form of seild or
screening as protection against EMC noise.
If some form of cable protection is used, the “Shield” must be terminated at the
as shown in chapter 2.

Because of the delicate nature of all analog signals, failure to take good EMC precautions could lead to
EMC noise induced errors; up to ±10% of actual values. This is an absolute worst case figure, users who
do take good precautions can expect operation within normal tolerances.
EMC considerations should include selection of good quality cables, good routing of those cables away
from potential noise sources.
Additionally it is recommended that signal averaging is used as this will reduce the effects of random noise
“spikes”.

Transfer the averaged temperature value in °C to the
data registers.
This step is the actual reading of the FX2N-4AD-TC input channels. It is essentially the
only program step which is needed. The "TO" instruction in this example, sets the input
channels, CH1 and CH2, to take the average reading of four samples.
The "FROM" instruction reads the average temperatures (BFM #5 and #6) for input
channels CH1 and CH2 of the FX2N-4AD-TC. If direct temperature readings are
required BFM #9 and #10 should be read instead, e.g.
