NOTE
The dedicated input of STD.DIO connector provided on the RCX240 controllers
will be disabled except for an interlock signal (DI 11). When the Board condition
(external 24V monitor control) of system parameters is set invalid, the interlock
signal (DI 11) will also be disabled. On the RCX22x, the dedicated input of STD.
DIO connector will be disabled, but the interlock signal (DI 11) in SAFETY
connector enabled.
[Wiring saving]
One dedicated cable (4-wire) is used to connect the robot controller and PLC. This allows
the entire system wiring to be reduced.
[Emulated serialization on parallel DIO]
By making the robot controller’s internal settings without using a robot program, the
various I/O devices, such as the sensors and relays mounted on the robot controller’s
parallel I/O can be controlled from the PLC as if they were CC-Link system I/O devices.
c
CAUTION
An emergency stop terminal for hardwire is provided in SAFETY connector on the
robot controller. In the case of the RCX240, when the CC-Link system is used while
STD. DIO is not used (external DC 24V power supply is not used), the Board
condition (external 24V monitor control) of system parameters must be set invalid.
If it is left valid, the STD. DIO interlock signal is enabled causing an error in the
robot operation commands.

w When connection to CC-Link system is incorrectly established
The following causes can be considered a correct connection with the CC-Link
system cannot be established:
• The CC-Link system cable is not physically connected
• The station No. or communication speed is set incorrectly
• The master station PLC is not operating correctly
When the robot controller is incorrectly connected to the CC-Link system, the error
state will be indicated with the LEDs on the CC-Link compatible module. Note that if
the master station PLC is not operating correctly, nothing will appear on the LEDs.
The emergency stop signal and interlock signal in the CC-Link system are invalid in
this case, so the robot controller can be operated independently. However, if the
correct state has been established even once after the robot controller power was
turned ON, the robot controller’s emergency stop state cannot be canceled without
correctly connecting to the CC-Link system.
The emergency stop terminal in SAFETY connector is always kept valid. On the
RCX22x, the interlock signal in SAFETY connector is also valid. On the RCX240, the
interlock signal in STD. DIO connector is valid unless the Board condition (external
24V monitor control) of system parameters is set invalid.
When SAFE mode is enabled, service mode input signal to the RCX22x is made valid
with DI (02) in SAFETY connector. On the RCX240, service mode input signal is
made valid with DI (02) in SAFETY connector unless the Board condition (external
24V monitor control) of system parameters is set invalid.

COMMUNICATION
When the robot controller is correctly connected to the CC-Link system, the normal
state will be indicated with the LEDs on the CC-Link compatible module.
At this time, the emergency stop signal and interlock signal in the CC-Link system
will be valid, so these signals must be turned ON with the initial data process.
The emergency stop terminal in SAFETY connector is always kept valid. On the
RCX22x, the interlock signal in SAFETY connector is also valid. On the RCX240, the
interlock signal in STD. DIO connector is valid unless the Board condition (external
24V monitor control) of system parameters is set invalid.
When SAFE mode is enabled, service mode input signal is made valid with SI (02) in
the CC-Link system. Service mode input signal to the RCX22x is also made valid with
DI (02) in SAFETY connector. On the RCX240, service mode input signal is made
valid with DI (02) in SAFETY connector unless the Board condition (external 24V
monitor control) of system parameters is set invalid.
1. State when robot controller power is turned ON
Service mode input signal in the CC-Link system cannot be invalidated when SAFE

When reading the bit information from the master station PLC’s output device No. with
the robot controller, write the following commands in the robot program in the same
manner as the DI input port:
WAIT command
Assignment statement
Example
:To wait for RY(n+1)0 to turn ON
WAIT SI(20) = 1 ................. * The robot program will wait for SI(20) to turn
ON.
:To read the RY(n+1) 0 to RY(n+1)7 data in variable A
A = SI2() ............................ * The SI2() data will be converted into a
decimal and assigned to variable A.
If SI2() is 7Fh, variable A will be 127.
n
NOTE
The SI statement in the robot language can be defined from SI0 ( ) to SI27 ( ), but
the CC-Link compatible module accepts from SI0 ( ) to SI15 ( ).
When reading the word information from the master station PLC’s output device No. with
the robot controller, write the following command in the robot program.
Assignment statement
Example
:To read the RWw (n+2) word data in variable B
B = SIW (2) ........................ * The SIW (2) data will be assigned to variable
B as a decimal. If SIW (2) is 01FFh, variable B
will be 511.
Example
:To read the RWw (n+2) and RWw (n+3) double word data into variable C
C = SID (2) ........................ * The SIW (2) and SIW (3) data will be assigned
to variable C as a decimal.
If SIW (2) is 0010h and SIW (3) is 0001h,
variable C will be 65552.
n
NOTE
Word data read out with SIW(n) is a little endian format with no sign.

NOTE
• Step execution input (SI(03)) is only supported by the RCX22x.
• When using SI(17) as return-to-origin input with the RCX240 which is used as a
replacement for the RCX141 or RCX221, use SI(17) as "absolute reset / return-toorigin".
• When the RCX240 is used with a robot whose axis configuration includes
absolute type, incremental type and/or semi-absolute type axes, and if SI(17) is
used for "absolute reset / return-to-origin", then absolute reset is performed on
the absolute reset axis each time return-to-origin is performed on the
incremental type and/or semi-absolute type axes. So, if the robot axis
configuration includes absolute type, incremental type and/or semi-absolute
type axes, we recommend using SI (17) to perform absolute reset and SI(14) to
perform return-to-origin.
• Return-to-origin input and absolute reset input can also be executed in AUTO
mode by changing the execution level. Refer to the controller user's manual for
more details.

[Details of sample]
• Pick & place work is carried out using the PLC and RCX240 + SXYx (3 axes),
RCX240+MXYx (3 axes).
• The workpieces supplied to each robot are arranged on one pallet.
• The workpiece is supplied at a rate faster than the robot operation.
• The two robots will interfere above the pallet, so data is exchanged to prevent
interference.
• When handling the workpiece, the robot moves at a low speed.
• The robot controller directly exchanges the pallet.
* Refer to the robot programming manual for details on the robot program language.
* The PLC circuit is a simple circuit that executes the selected robot program when
emergency stop is canceled.
