CAUTION

When installing the RFID interface module and amplifier/antenna cables, do not bundle the
cables with or install the cables close to the main circuit, power lines, or the like. Be sure to
separate the cables and lines by about 100mm or more. Failure to do so will cause noise,
resulting in malfunction.

When storing the product, be sure to observe the defined storage ambient temperature and
humidity. Failure to do so will lead to module malfunction and failure.

Look the control panel so that only those who are trained and have acquired enough knowledge
of electric facilities can open control panel.

Install the emergency stop switch outside the control panel so that workers can operate it easily.
[INSTALLATION PRECAUTIONS]
CAUTION

Use the module in an environment that reflects the general specifications stated in the manual.
Using the module in an environment out of the general specification range results in the risk of
electric shock, fire, malfunction, and product damage or deterioration.

Fully secure the module using a DIN rail or installation screws, and fully tighten the screws within
the specified torque range. If a screw is too loose, a dropped module, short circuit, or malfunction
may result. If a screw is too tight, screw and/or module damage may occur, resulting in a
dropped module, short circuit, or malfunction.

Do not directly touch a powered section of the module. Doing so results in the risk of module
malfunction and failure.
[WIRING PRECAUTIONS]
WARNING

Be sure to shut off all phases of the external power supply used by the system before performing
work such as wiring. Failure to do so results in the risk of product damage, and malfunction.
CAUTION

Be sure to ground the FG terminal using programmable controller dedicated class D (type 3)
grounding or greater. Failure to do so results in the risk of electric shock and malfunction.

Be sure to tighten any open terminal screws within the specified torque range. Failure to do so
causes a short circuit.

Use the appropriate crimp terminals, and tighten the terminals to the specified torque. If a crimp
terminal with an open end is used, the terminal screw will fall off if loose, causing failure.
A-2
A-2
CAUTION

Fully mount the antenna cable to the module connector. After mounting, check for separation.
Insufficient contact results in the risk of erroneous input and output.

Be sure to place the communication cables and power cables connected to the module in a duct,
or secure them with clamps. Failure to do so results in the risk of cable movement and drift, module
or cable damage caused by careless pulling, and malfunction caused by insufficient cable contact.

When connecting a cable, first verify the connection interface type and then connect the cable
properly. Connecting a cable to a wrong interface or miswiring a cable results in the risk of
module and external device malfunction.

Tighten the screws within the specified torque range. If a screw is too loose, a short circuit or
malfunction may result. If a screw is too tight, screw and/or module damage may occur, resulting
in a short circuit or malfunction.

When removing a communication cable or power cable connected to the module, do not pull the
cable section. For cables with connectors, hold the connector of the section connected to the
module during removal. For terminal block cables, loosen the screws of the terminal block and
then remove the cable. Pulling a cable while it is connected to the module results in the risk of
module and cable damage as well as malfunction due to a poor cable connection.

Do not insert or remove an antenna cable with the power ON. Doing so results in the risk of failure.

Prevent foreign matter such as dust or wire chips from entering the module. Such foreign matter
may cause fire, failure, or malfunction.

Do not bunch the control wires and communication cables with the main circuit, power lines, or
the like, or install them close to each other. Keep a distance of 100mm or more between them.
Failure to do so may result in malfunction due to noise.

Do not invert the external power supply polarities +24V and 24G. The RFID interface module will
not operate.
[STARTUP AND MAINTENANCE PRECAUTIONS]
WARNING

Do not touch the terminals while the module is powered. Doing so results in the risk of malfunction.
CAUTION

Do not disassemble or modify the module. Doing so results in the risk of failure, malfunction,
injury, and fire.

Be sure to shut off all phases of the external power supply used by the system before module
installation to or removal from the panel. Failure to do so results in the risk of module failure and
malfunction.
A-3
A-3
CAUTION

After product use begins, be sure the number of times the terminal block is installed and removed
does not exceed 50 (JIS B 3502 compliant). Exceeding 50 results in the risk of malfunction.

Be sure to shut off all phases of the external power supply used in the system before cleaning or
tightening terminal screws or module screws. Failure to do so results in the risk of module failure
and malfunction. If a screw is too loose, a dropped module, short circuit, or malfunction may
result. If a screw is too tight, screw and/or module damage may occur, resulting in a dropped
module, short circuit, or malfunction.

The module case is made of plastic. Do not drop the case or expose the case to strong impact.
Doing so results in the risk of module damage.

Before touching the module, be sure to touch grounded metal or the like to release the static
electricity from your body. Failure to do so results in the risk of module failure or malfunction.

When cleaning, do not use thinner, benzene, acetone, or kerosene. Doing so results in the risk of
module damage.

Do not insert water or wire through the gaps in the case. Doing so results in the risk of fire or
electric shock.

This product cannot be used as a detector for physical protection. Erroneous output or
malfunction may result in an accident.

When installing or removing the antenna from the amplifier, first turn OFF the module power
supply. Failure to do so results in the risk of module failure and malfunction.

Installation of multiple antennas may result in a decrease in communication performance due to
mutual interference. Refer to the description of mutual interference between antennas in the
antenna user’s manual.

In the unlikely event that you feel something is wrong with the product, stop using the product
immediately, turn OFF the power supply, and consult with your local Mitsubishi service center or

1. OVERVIEW
1.2 RFID Interface Module Features
1
The following describes the features of the RFID interface module.
(1) The RFID interface module enables OMRON RFID system V680 series connection
to CC-Link.
This product can connect the OMRON RFID system V680 series to CC-Link,
achieving distributed control at the distance up to 1200 m (at the 156-kbps
transmission speed). Furthermore, it is possible to construct an RFID sensor
system architecture that uses a rich group of CC-Link products.
(2) The module can read and write a maximum of 122 bytes*1 of data at one time.
*1. In the case of remote net Ver.2 mode, two occupied stations, and an octuple
expanded cyclic setting.
(3) The module permits usage of both OMRON RFID system V680 series separate-type
and amplifier built-in type antennas.
(4) The module is provided with various test functions as standard.
The communication test function allows you to check whether or not communication
with an ID tag is possible without operating the sequence program.
The distance level measurement function measures the distance (level) between
the antenna and ID tag with respect to the communication area. The function
allows you to check the measurement results in seven stages, 00 to 06.
The noise level measurement function measures the noise level in the area
surrounding the antenna installation location.
(5) The module allows you to select a mode in accordance with a variety of systems.
Remote net Ver.2 mode: Select this mode when you want to construct a new
system. The mode allows you to combine the module with an applicable master
module and increase the number of connected remote device stations to 42,
maximum.
Remote net Ver.1 mode: This mode is fully compatible with conventional remote
network modes. Select this mode when system expansion is not required.
Remote net additional mode: Select this mode when you want to add a version 2
compatible slave station to the conventional version 1 system.
(6) The module allows you to simply develop programs by downloading an FB (function
block) library that can be used with Mitsubishi Electric MELSOFT GX Works2 from
the Mitsubishi Electric Corporation FA site and FA related product site (MEEFAN).
(Supported by GX Works2 Japanese version only)
(7) The Mitsubishi Electric iQ Sensor Solution (iQSS) makes it possible to further
strengthen the linkage with the programmable controller, graphic operation terminal,
and engineering software, and achieve simple startup, sensor monitoring, and
simple programming.

100mm or more.
 Be sure to ground the FG terminal using programmable controller dedicated
class D (type 3) grounding or greater. Failure to do so results in the risk of
electric shock and malfunction.
 Do not invert the external power supply polarities +24V and 24G. The RFID
interface module will not operate.

6. HOW TO COMMUNICATE WITH ID TAGS
6.3 Control Methods According to Communication Specification
6.3.1 Trigger
With the trigger communication specification, communication is performed with the ID
tag stopped within the antenna communication area.
1. When the ID command execution request (RYn4) is turned ON, ID-BUSY (Rxn3) is
turned ON and communication with the ID tag is started.
2. After communication with the ID tag ends, ID command complete (RXn4) turns ON.
3. When the ID command execution request (RYn4) is turned OFF, ID-BUSY (RXn3) and
ID command complete (RXn4) turns OFF and the module changes to a standby state.
4. If an ID tag does not exist within the communication area of the antenna the moment
the ID command execution request (RYn4) is turned ON, bit 10 of the error details
storage area (RWrm+1H) turns ON and error detection (RXn5) turns ON.
With the trigger communication specification, communication cannot be performed
normally, bit 12 of the error details storage area (RWrm+1H) turns ON, and error
detection (RXn5) turns ON when multiple ID tags are within the antenna communication
area. Thus, make sure there is only one ID tag within the antenna communication area.

6. HOW TO COMMUNICATE WITH ID TAGS
6.3.2 Auto
With the auto communication specification, communication is performed while the ID
tag is being moved.
1. When the ID command execution request (RYn4) is turned ON, ID-BUSY (Rxn3) is
turned ON and ID tag detection is started.
2. When an ID tag enters within the antenna communication area, communication with
the ID tag is started.
3. After communication with the ID tag ends, ID command complete (RXn4) turns ON.
4. When the ID command execution request (RYn4) is turned OFF, ID-BUSY (RXn3) and
ID command complete (RXn4) turns OFF and the module changes to a standby state.
5. With the auto communication specification, communication cannot be performed
normally, bit 12 of the error details storage area (RWrm+1H) turns ON, and error
detection (RXn5) turns ON when multiple ID tags are within the antenna
communication area at once. Thus, make sure there is only one ID tag within the
antenna communication area.
If the time set in the auto system command wait time setting area (RWwm+3H)
elapses during waiting for the communicable ID tag, bit 10 of the error details
storage area (RWrm+1H) turns ON and error detection (RXn5) turns ON.

6.3.3 Repeat auto
With the repeat auto communication specification, communication is performed while
the ID tag is being moved.
Communication is performed with the ID tags that enter the antenna communication
area one after the other, until the ID command execution request (RYn4) is turned OFF.
1. When the ID command execution request (RYn4) is turned ON, ID-BUSY (Rxn3) is
turned ON and ID tag detection is started.
2. When an ID tag enters within the antenna communication area, communication with
the ID tag is started.
3. After communication with the ID tag ends, ID command complete (RXn4) turns ON.
4. When result reception (RYn6) is turned ON, ID command complete (RXn4) turns OFF
and detection of the next ID tag within the antenna communication area is started.
5. Subsequently, Steps 2 to 4 are repeated.
6. When the ID command execution request (RYn4) is turned OFF, ID-BUSY (RXn3) is
turned OFF and ID tag detection is ended.
7. With the repeat auto communication specification, communication cannot be
performed normally, bit 12 of the error details storage area (RWrm+1H) turns ON,
and error detection (RXn5) turns ON when multiple ID tags are within the antenna
communication area at once. Thus, make sure there is only one ID tag within the
antenna communication area.
If the time set in the auto system command wait time setting area (RWwm+3H)
elapses during waiting for the communicable ID tag, bit 10 of the error details
storage area (RWrm+1H) turns ON and error detection (RXn5) turns ON.
Communication is started by the
ID tag entering within the
communication area.

6.3.4 FIFO trigger
With the FIFO trigger communication specification, communication is performed while
the ID tag is stopped within the antenna communication area.
1. When the ID command execution request (RYn4) is turned ON, ID-BUSY (Rxn3) is
turned ON and communication with the ID tag is started.
2. After communication with the ID tag ends, operation of the ID tag is disabled, and ID
command complete (RXn4) turns ON.
3. When the ID command execution request (RYn4) is turned OFF, ID-BUSY (RXn3) and
ID command complete (RXn4) turns OFF, and the module changes to a standby state.
4. When an operable ID tag does not exist within the antenna communication area the
moment the ID command execution request (RXn4) is turned ON, bit 10 of the error
details storage area (RWrm+1H) turns ON and error detection (RXn5) turns ON.
5. With the FIFO trigger communication specification, communication is possible if
there is one operable ID tag among the ID tags within the antenna communication
area. When two or more operable ID tags exist, communication cannot be
performed normally, bit 12 of the error details storage area (RWrm+1H) turns ON,
and error detection (RXn5) turns ON.
When the ID command execution request is
turned ON, communication is performed with
an operable ID tag that exists within the
communication area. When an operable ID
tag is not present, a tag not present error
occurs.
The operation of an ID tag that

7.2 Checking the System when Reading and Writing Cannot Be Performed with Remote I/O Signals and
Remote Registers
For details, refer to the troubleshooting section of the user's manual of the master
module used.
Point
(1) Even when the master station is operated using remote net Ver.1 mode and
ECL2-V680D1 is operated using remote net Ver.2 mode (mode switches 5 to 7)
in an inconsistent state, L RUN may turn on.
(2) At times, a consistency error may not occur and L RUN may turn on even
though the parameters of the master station and ECL2-V680D1 are not
consistent. For details, refer to the user's manual of the master module used.
7.3 Error Details List
When an error occurs, the RFID interface module turns ON the bit corresponding to the
error details of the error details storage area (RWrn+1H) during initial data setting or in
the RUN mode.
In TEST mode, the value corresponding to the error details is stored in the processing
result storage area (RWrn+3H).
The bit of the error details storage area (RWrn+1H) is cleared as follows.
In RUN mode, the bit is cleared by turning OFF the ID command execution request
(RYn4) or turning ON/OFF the result reception (RYn6). During initial data setting, the
bit is cleared by turning the initial data setting request flag (RY (n+m) 9) OFF.

APPENDIX 4 EMC AND LOW VOLTAGE DIRECTIVES
Compliance to the EMC Directive, which is one of the EU Directives, has been a legal
obligation for the products sold in European countries since 1996 as well as the Low
Voltage Directive since 1997.
Manufacturers who recognize their products are compliant to the EMC and Low
Voltage Directives are required to attach a "CE mark" on their products.
(1) Sales representative in EU member states
Authorized representative in EU member states is shown below.
Name: Mitsubishi Electric Europe BV
Address: Gothaer Strasse 8, 40880 Ratingen, Germany
Appendix 4.1 Measures to comply with the EMC Directive
The EMC Directive specifies that "products placed on the market must be so
constructed that they do not cause excessive electromagnetic interference (emissions)
and are not unduly affected by electromagnetic interference (immunity)".
This section summarizes the precautions on compliance with the EMC Directive of the
machinery constructed with the RFID interface module.
These precautions are based on the requirements and the standards of the regulation,
however, it does not guarantee that the entire machinery constructed according to the
descriptions will comply with abovementioned directives.
The method and judgement for complying with the EMC Directive must be determined
by the person who constructs the entire machinery.
Appendix 4.1.1 Installation instructions for EMC Directive
The RFID interface module is an open type device and must be installed inside a
control panel for use.
This not only ensures safety but also ensures effective shielding of RFID interface
module-generated electromagnetic noise.
(1) Control panel
Use a conductive control panel.
When attaching the control panel's top plate or base plate, mask painting and
weld so that good surface contact can be made between the panel and plate.
To ensure good electrical contact with the control panel, mask the paint on the
installation bolts of the inner plate in the control panel so that contact between
surfaces can be ensured over the widest possible area.
Ground the control panel with a thick wire so that a low impedance connection to
ground can be ensured even at high frequencies.
App - 8
App - 8
APPENDICES
Holes made in the control panel must be 10cm (3.94 inches) diameter or less. If
the holes are 10cm (3.94 inches) or larger, radio frequency noise may be
emitted. In addition, because radio waves leak through a clearance between the
control panel door and the main unit, reduce the clearance as much as
practicable.
(2) Connection of ground cable
The ground cable should be laid out as follows:
Provide a control panel grounding point near the module. Ground the FG (frame
ground) terminal with the thickest and shortest grounding wire (wire for
grounding) possible (about 30cm (11.81 inches) or less in length). Since the FG
terminal functions to ground the noise generated in the module interior, it is
necessary to ensure the lowest possible impedance. The ground wire must be
wired over a short distance. As the wire is used to relieve the noise, the wire
itself contains a large amount of noise and thus short wiring prevents the wire
from functioning as an antenna.
(3) External power supply
Use a CE-marked product for an external power supply and always ground the
FG terminal.
Use a power cable of 10m or shorter when connecting it to the module power
supply terminal.
(4) CC-Link
Be sure to ground the cable shield that is connected to the CC-Link module
close to the exit of control panel or to any of the CC-Link stations within 30cm
(11.81 inches) from the module or stations.
The CC-Link dedicated cable is a shielded cable.
Remove a part of the jacket as shown below and ground the exposed shield
section to the ground as much as possible.

Use a CE-marked power supply to which the module power supply or external
power supply is connected. Ground the FG terminals.
(5) Others
(a) Ferrite core
A ferrite core has the effect of reducing radiated noise in the 30MHz to
100MHz band.
It is recommended to attach ferrite cores if shielded cables coming out of the
control panel do not provide sufficient shielding effects.
Note that the ferrite cores must be attached at the position closest to the cable
hole inside the control panel. If attached at an improper position, the ferrite
core will not product any effect.
Attach the ferrite core to the terminal that connects to the external power
supply of the main module, 4cm (1.57 inches) away from the module.
Example
+24V
24G
Ferrite core
(b) Noise filter (power supply line filter)
A noise filter is a component which has an effect on conducted noise.
Attaching the filter can suppress more noise. (The noise filter has the effect of
reducing conducted noise of 10MHz or less.)
Connect a noise filter to the external power supply of a main module and the
external power supply of an extension module.
Use a noise filter with the damping characteristics equivalent to those of
MA1206 (manufactured by TDK-Lambda Corporation). Note that a noise filter
is not required if the module is used in Zone A defined in EN61131-2.
App - 10
App - 10
APPENDICES
The precautions for attaching a noise filter are described below.
Do not bundle the cables on the input side and output side of the noise filter.
If bundled, the output side noise will be induced into the input side cables
from which the noise was filtered.

Output side
(device side)
Separately install the input and
output wires.
Ground the noise filter grounding terminal to the control panel with the shortest
cable possible (approx. 10cm (3.94 inches)).
Appendix 4.2 Requirements to compliance with the Low Voltage Directive
This module operates at the rated voltage of 24VDC.
The Low Voltage Directive is not applied to the modules that operate at the rated
voltage of less than 50VAC and 75VDC.
