Before use
[1] Differences from the ZM-70T's ladder monitor function
Can use a 32-pixel per character font (smooth 4x character font).
However, there is a limitation on the amount of data that can be shown on the screen at one time.
Can use custom 16-pixel characters created by the user.
The ZM-70T uses a custom 16-pixel character file supplied by SHARP to display ladder chart symbols. The ZM-42/43/52/72/82 series can use this custom 16-pixel character file for characters created by the user.
The macro instructions used to display ladder charts are exclusive commands for the ZM-42/43/52/
72/82.
The ZM-70T writes a macro to system memory using division No. 255 of the message mode. However, the ZM-42/43/52/72/82 uses the exclusive commands, and is easier to set up than before.
[2] Other precautions
When using the ladder monitor function, make sure to include an F-40 (END) instruction at the end
of each ladder program.
If an F-40 instruction is not used, the program may not function properly when you try to search for
coils or similar features located at the end of a ladder program.
The ladder monitor function is proprietary SHARP function. It cannot be used with PCs made by
other manufacturers.
In order to use the ladder monitor function, ZM-71SE screen editor software (V1.3.0.0 or later) for
Windows OS and JW-100SP ladder software (V3.02 or later) are required.
When using the ZM-42/43 series, the maximum screen size for these monitors is 320 x 240 pixels.
They cannot display a ladder chart for one complete network on a single screen. In this case, use a
contact point touch function or the scroll function to display the rest of the network.
With the ladder monitor function, a ladder monitor system program will occupy the user screen data
area in the monitor, so the screen data capacity of the user area is decreased by 128K bytes.
When the JW50H/70H/100H series is connected to the monitor, the expansion relay area (address
20000 to 57777) cannot be used for the ladder monitor function. When a JW30H is used, use of area
above address 20000 may require a lot of time to search.
When connecting the ZM series control terminal to a PG port on the control module, if you want to
turn a relay ON or OFF using a switch, the switch cannot be used if the set value change switch
(special relay number 07365) is OFF.
When the monitor is connected to a PC port on a control module, the following error may occur. In
this case, turn OFF the memory protect switch on the control module.
- Error detail: The LCD control terminal will display "Communication error - Receive code 27."
Chapter 1: Outline
The ZM-42/43/52/72/82 series LCD control terminal can display a ladder circuit for a PC (programmable controller) used for facility maintenance.
The LCD control terminal does not contain the entire ladder program in itself, just like the ladder software (JW50SP and others). It searches for the ladder program on a network that has the specified coil number, and
displays the reconstructed ladder chart.
The LCD control terminal only monitors the circuit and it cannot write or modify (edit or delete) the circuit. The
LCD control terminal only can be used with a SHARP PC (JW50H/70H/100H, JW30H, and JW20H series). This
function is enabled when the terminal is connected to a PG port on a control module or a PG port on a JW20CM/JW-20RS/JW-20MN/JW-22CM/JW-21MN. The link system supports PG port communication protocols.
Features
(1) The LCD control terminal searches for a coil with the same lamp memory address as the switch that is
displayed on the screen. It displays the ladder chart for the network that has this coil.
(2) Specify any coil number by using the numeric keys on the screen. The LCD control terminal will display
the ladder chart for a single network that has this coil on an overlapping screen.
(3) By touching a contact point on the displayed ladder chart, the cursor will move there and display a
symbol comment on the lower line of the ladder chart, if one was registered.
After the cursor moves to the contact point you touched, touching the contact point again will cause the
LCD control terminal to search for a coil for this contact point. When found, it will display the ladder chart
for the network with that coil.
(4) By touching a contact point, the screen will return to the most recent ladder screen prior to the current
ladder screen. (You can review up to previous 8 screens)
(5) The LCD control terminal can display the previous and next circuits for the ladder chart being displayed.
(One network each)
(6) The LCD control terminal can search for the previous and next contact points.
(7) A large circuit that cannot be displayed on a single screen can be scrolled.
(In particular, the ZM-42/43 series LCD control terminals have a smaller display area (320 x 240 pixels).
The range that can be displayed at one time is limited.
(8) Since simple operation procedures are used to display a ladder circuit on a running PC, it is easy to
determine a facility's condition and to find out why a facility stopped.

[3] Wiring method
This section describes the cable connection between the LCD control terminal and a PC (control
module, communication module).
Connect a cable to the CN1 connector (TB1 when ZM-52HD is used) on the back of the LCD control
terminal. Connect the other end of the cable to the PG port (connector for a support tool) on a PC.
- When installing a communication module (JW-20CM or the like) in a PC, the PG port on the PC is used
to connect a programmer or ladder software. Therefore, connecting the LCD control terminal to a PG
port on the communication module can be convenient for debugging.

Chapter 6: Ladder Monitor Display
6-1 Outline of ladder monitor display
- On a normal display screen, put on an overlap screen. The LCD control terminal displays a ladder
monitor on the display area of this overlapped screen.
- By entering a coil number using the numeric keys on the screen, a ladder monitor can be displayed on
the overlapped screen. (Inputting TMR/CNT number is also available.)
Touch a lamp on the error status screen.
Display a ladder chart on the overlap screen
6-2 Instruction to display ladder monitors
A ladder monitor screen can be displayed by the following methods.
Arrange a switch (setting a lamp memory) on the screen. By touching this switch, the LCD control
terminal searches a ladder circuit of one network having the coil number of this lamp memory, and
displays a ladder monitor on the overlap screen.
Enter any coil number (or TMR/CNT number) using the numeric key input screen, the LCD control
terminal searches a ladder circuit of one network having this coil number, and displays a ladder monitor on the overlapped screen.
An application example
- Linking with relay mode (message display), the LCD control terminal searches a ladder circuit of
one network having this coil number, and displays the ladder monitor on the overlapped screen.
- Display a ladder monitor by assigning any memory of a switch.
Once a ladder chart is displayed, touch (1st time) a contact point on the ladder chart. The cursor moves to
the touched contact point and displays one line of symbol/comment below the ladder chart if a comment
is registered.
Again touch the cursor (2nd time); the LCD control terminal searches a coil for this contact point.
If the coil exists, the LCD control terminal displays a ladder chart having this coil.
If the coil does not exist, the LCD control terminal displays a "NETWORK NOT FOUND" message.
6-3 Ladder monitor display style
When displaying a ladder monitor, the control terminal uses its display style and call overlap.
"Call overlap" is to set one overlap screen. By setting this, the same overlap screen can be displayed on
any screen.
On the call overlap screen used, a contact point switch is arranged (translucent) for executing coil search
by pressing the contact point on the ladder chart.
6-1
6-4 How to set ladder monitor
Start up the ZM-71SE software and set according to the setting procedures below.
Copy screen data of the basic screen data [LADDER82.Z71] to set a ladder monitor.
On the software tool bar, select "File" → "File Manage" → "Screen data file" in that order.
Select "LADDER82.Z71" (basic screen data) in the Copy Source column, and enter file name (Ex.
"TEST.Z71") in the Copy Target column and click the "OK" button. (See the figure above.)
[1] Copy multi overlap No. 0
Click the icon of the multi overlap No. 0 of the source data, and drag (draw while pressing down the left
mouse button) to the No. 0 position of a copy destination. Now the copying is complete.
This will be a button switch used to the display ladder monitor screen.
[2] Copy multi overlap No. 1
Same as the procedures above, copy No. 1.
This will be a button switch to display numeric keys to enter the coil number.
6-2
[3] Copy macro block (No. 0 to 13)
If some macro blocks are already used, change numbers in order not to double the same macro block
numbers.
Especially, to change description of switch ON macro that is set to contact point search switch of multi
overlap No. 0 is difficult, change macro block number already used.
[4] How to register symbol comment characters for ladder display (message data
area)
Using symbol/comment data created on the ladder software for PC, register symbol/comment data in the
message data area of ZM series.
With these procedures, display of symbol/commend on the ladder monitor display becomes possible.
The message data area: 256 lines (pieces) x 24 groups = 6144 lines (pieces) at maximum.
Determine use ratio between normal alarm character display and symbol/comment data within this range.
Prepare symbol/comment data created.
In case of data created using JW-50SP: Extension; *.SYE or *.SYM
In case of data created using JW-100SP: Extension; *.SYC
Start up the JW-100SP software and load symbol file. (V3.02 or later version of JW-100SP)
Change file type to a specified format. [Ex.] LADDER.SYC
After loading the symbol file, save symbol/comment with ZM70 format (*.mg).
6-3
When the symbol/comment is saved in ZM70 format, a "*.mg" file is created by dividing files so each
has 256 symbols/comments at maximum.
[Ex.] When the number of symbols/comments is 1000 and file name is "TEST.SYC."
By saving this file in ZM70 format, four files will be created as "TEST01.MG," "TEST02.MG,"
"TEST03.MG," and "TEST04.MG."
Load the text file (*.MG) having 256 symbols/comments using the software message edit function.
- On the basic screen, message block No. 0 to 11 for displaying normal message and message
block No. 12 to 23 for displaying symbol/comment are provided.
- Open the "*.MG" file using software that can handle text files.
(Ex.: "Notepad" software as an accessory of Windows OS)
- Copy line 0 to 255 and paste to message group No. 12 on the ZM-71SE message edit screen
using the copy and paste function of Windows.
In this case, check that number of messages per one message group is 256 (No. 0 to 255).
- If a carriage return is added at the end of each line, delete these using the back space key.
When the cursor reaches to the last line of the messages, check that the number of lines displayed
at the lowest row of the window display on the status display bar shows 1 to 255. (See the figure
below.)
If this indication shows more than 256, the data exceeds the maximum capacity. Delete lines
exceeding 256 lines.
- By converting the symbol/comment data of the PC, the LCD control terminal recognizes message
data as PC symbol/comment data.
If a normal message is entered using keys, the LCD control terminal does not recognize it as
symbol/comment data.
- After this, move message groups for the number of "*.MG" files one by one.
[Ex.] When the number of symbols/comments is 1000, proceed with TEST01.MG to TEST04.MG as
follows.
Copy "TEST01.MG" text data to message group No. 12 (number of data: 256)
Copy "TEST02.MG" text data to message group No. 13 (number of data: 256)
Copy "TEST03.MG" text data to message group No. 14 (number of data: 256)
Copy "TEST04.MG" text data to message group No. 15 (number of data: 232)
(When setting message group No. 12 and after as symbol/comment area.)
With the above, loading of PC symbols/comments on the message edit screen is complete.
6-4
[5] Setting screen for display ladder chart
(1) Initial setting in order to use the ladder monitor (Select from edit items).
Select "System setting" → "Other settings" → Make possible to use the ladder monitor on the P3
menu.
Click the check box " □ Use Ladder Monitor." (See the figure below.)
If you cannot put check mark because the characters are changed to meaningless symbols, reset the
PLC type to "SHARP: PG port."
(2) Set for overlap display of ladder chart on a screen to you want to display.
Move to an edit screen you want to display.
Click the overlap icon on the part edit screen of the software.
The "Overlap Setting" dialog shown below appears. Select "No. 0 Overlap" → "Call."
This call overlap will be a button switch that is used to display ladder chart.
