resulting in medium or slight personal injury or physical damage.
Note that the
CAUTION level may lead to a serious consequence according to the circumstances.
Always follow the instructions of both levels because they are important to personal safety.
Please store this manual in a safe place and make it accessible when required. Always forward it to the end
user.
[DESIGN PRECAUTION]
DANGER
Do not write data into the "system area" of the buffer memory of intelligent function modules. Also,
do not use any "prohibited to use" signals as an output signal to an intelligent function module
from the programmable controller CPU.
Writing data into the "system area" or outputting a signal for "prohibited to use" may cause a
malfunction of the programmable controller system.
CAUTION
Do not bunch the control wires or communication cables with the main circuit or power wires, or
install them close to each other.
They should be installed 100mm(3.9inch) or more from each other.
Not doing so could result in noise that may cause malfunction.

product.
While pressing the installation lever located at the bottom of module, insert the module fixing tab
into the fixing hole in the base unit until it stops. Then, securely mount the module with the fixing
hole as a supporting point.
For the Q66AD-DG, secure the module with fixing brackets after installation to the base unit.
When using the Q68AD-G in an environment where they are frequent vibrations, screw the module
to the base unit after installation.
Tighten the screws within the range of specified torque.
If the screws are loose, it may cause the module to fallout, short circuits, or malfunction.
If the screws are tightened too much, it may cause damage to the screw and/or the module,
resulting in fallout, short circuits or malfunction.
Be sure to shut off all phases of the external power supply used by the system before mounting or
removing the module.
Not doing so may cause damage to the module.
In the system where a CPU module supporting the online module change is used and on the
MELSECNET/H remote I/O stations, modules can be replaced online (during energizing).
However, there are some restrictions on replaceable modules and the replacement procedures
are predetermined for each module.
For details, refer to the chapter of the online module change in this manual.
Do not directly touch the conductive area or electronic components of the module.

OVERVIEW
OVERVIEW
This User's Manual describes the specifications, handling and programming methods for
the type Q68AD-G channel isolated analog-digital converter module (hereinafter referred
to as the Q68AD-G) and type Q66AD-DG channel isolated analog-digital converter
module (with signal conditioning function) (hereinafter referred to as the Q66AD-DG),
which are used with the MELSEC-Q series CPU modules.
The Q66AD-DG is exclusively used for current input.
In this manual, the Q68AD-G and Q66AD-DG are collectively referred to as the A/D
converter modules.
1.1
Features
(1) Channel isolated
The channels are isolated.
The Q66AD-DG is also isolated between the external supply power and channels.
(2) Multi-channel analog input is available.
(a) By using a single Q68AD-G, analog voltage or current inputs of 8 points
(8 channels) are available.
(b) A single Q66AD-DG allows connection of 2-wire transmitters of 6 points
(6 channels).
It has an input range for analog current, in addition to connections to 2-wire
transmitters.
(3) Power supply to 2-wire transmitter (Q66AD-DG only)
Supplying power to the 2-wire transmitter, the Q66AD-DG does not require the power
supply for the 2-wire transmitter.
Supply power can be switched ON/OFF channel-by-channel by the A/D conversion
enable/disable setting.
(4) Module protection provided by short-circuit protection circuit
(Q66AD-DG only)
If an excessive current flows into the module due to a short circuit of the wiring, the
short-circuit protection circuit limits the current to within 25 to 35mA, protecting the
module.
(5) Analog input check by check terminals (Q66AD-DG only)
Measurement of a voltage at the check terminals allows the mA of the 2-wire
transmitter output to be checked without the wiring being disconnected.

*2 Accuracy per temperature change of 1°C
The input range*3 can easily be set from the GX Developer.
*3 Input range refers to the type of offset/gain settings. The most frequently used range is set as the
default but the user can also set the offset/gain.
(8) A/D conversion system
There are the following five A/D conversion systems.
(a) Sampling processing
Analog input values are converted into digital values one by one on a channel
basis and the digital output value is output at every conversion.
(b) Averaging processing
1) Time averaging
A/D conversion is averaged in terms of time on a channel basis and a digital
average value is output.
2) Count averaging
A/D conversion is averaged in terms of count on a channel basis and a digital
average value is output.
3) Move averaging
The specified number of digital output values measured per sampling time are
averaged.

OVERVIEW
(11)Scaling function
A/D conversion values can be converted to percentage values (%) in the preset range
and be loaded into the buffer memory. This function can reduce the time required for
programming. (Refer to Section 3.2.6.)
(12)Online module change
The module can be changed without the system being stopped.
Further, the dedicated instruction (G(P).OGLOAD,G(P).OGSTOR), write to the buffer
memory, or turning ON the Y signal enables "inheritance of offset/gain settings to the
new A/D converter module replacing the old one changed online" and "transfer of
offset/gain settings to the other A/D converter module mounted on the other slot".
(These apply to the modules of the same model.)
(13)Offset/gain setting
GX Configurator-AD, dedicated instruction (G(P).OFFGAN) or mode switching setting
allows a shift to the offset/gain setting mode easily.
(14)Easy settings using the utility package
A utility package is sold separately (GX Configurator-AD).
The utility package is not a required item, however, it is useful for on-screen setting of
the intelligent function module parameters (initial setting/auto refresh setting).
In addition, FB*1 can be generated automatically from the intelligent function module
parameters that have been set up and used in a sequence program.
*1 FB is the function for making a circuit block used in a sequence program repeatedly a part (FB) to
use it in the sequence program.
This function can improve the efficiency of program development and minimize program bugs to
improve program qualities.
For the details of FB, refer to "GX Developer Version 8 Operating Manual (Function
Block)."

A/D conversion methods
(1) Sampling processing
A/D conversion is performed successively for analog input values, and the
converted digital output values are stored in the buffer memory.
The sampling processing time varies depending on the number of channels used
(number of channels set as A/D conversion enable).
Sampling processing time = No. of channels used 10 (ms)
Example) When setting 6 for the number of channels used
6 10 = 60 (ms)
(2) Averaging processing
(a) Time averaging
A/D conversion is made for the preset period of time, the sum of values other than
the maximum and minimum values is averaged, and the result is stored into the
buffer memory.
The processing count within the set time varies depending on the number of
channels used (number of channels set as A/D conversion enable).
Processing count = Set time/(No. of channels used
10) (times)
Example) When setting 6 for the number of channels used, and 500ms for the
set time
500/(6 10) = 8.333 (times) Drop the fractional part.
(b) Count averaging
A/D conversion is made the preset number of times, the sum of values other than
the maximum and minimum values is averaged, and the result is stored into the
buffer memory.
The time required for the count-based average value to be stored into the buffer
memory varies depending on the number of channels used (number of channels
set as A/D conversion enable).
Processing time = Set count
(No. of channels used
10) (ms)
Example) When setting 5 (times) for the average processing count
5 6 10 = 50 (ms)
(c) Moving average
The specified count of digital output values imported per sampling period are
averaged to find a value, which is then stored into the buffer memory.
Since average processing is performed with data shifted per sampling, the most
recent digital output value is obtainable.

Scaling Function
(1) With this function, A/D conversion values are converted to rate values and loaded into
the buffer memory.
(2) A digital value stored in CH digital output value (Un\G11 to Un\G18) is converted to
a value in the range set by CH scaling upper/lower limit value (Un\G62 to Un\G77).
The converted value is stored in CH scaling value storage area (Un\G54 to
Un\G61).
(3) The scaling function is used for processed values when using the averaging
processing or primary delay filter.
(4) The setting of CH scaling upper/lower limit value (Un\G62 to Un\G77) varies
depending on whether to use the factory default range setting or the user range
setting for the input range.
(a) When using the factory default setting for the input range
Set a value that should correspond to the upper limit of digital output as the
scaling upper limit value, and a value that should correspond to the lower limit as
the scaling lower limit value.
Example 1) Input range setting: 0 to 20mA, or 4 to

(1) Set whether to ebable or disable A/D conversion for each channel.
For the Q66AD-DG, the A/D conversion enable/disable setting also acts as the ON/
OFF setting of the power supply to the 2-wire transmitter.
Note that power is supplied to only the 2-wire transmitters whose channels use input
ranges of "4 to 20mA (2-wire transmitter input): 0H", "4 to 20mA (Expanded mode)
(2-wire transmitter input): AH" or "User range setting (2-wire transmitter input): FH".
No power is supplied when any other input range is used.
(2) It is necessary to set the operating condition setting request (Y9) to ON/OFF in order
to validate the A/D conversion enable/disable setting. (Refer to Section 3.3.2.)
(3) The Q68AD-G is preset to enable A/D conversion on all channels.
(4) The Q66AD-DG is preset to disable A/D conversion on all channels.

(2) For the primary delay filter marked*2, set a value equal to or greater than
(10ms x number of channels used). If any insufficient value is set, an error
occurs and 0 is stored as a digital output value.
(3) Writing a value outside the range to a channel will cause an error, storing an
error code in Error code (Un\G19) and turning ON the Error flag (XF). If this
occurs, A/D conversion is performed based on the setting before the error
detection.
(4) Since the default setting is 0, change it for the selected processing method.
(5) If a value is set to a sampling-processing channel, the value is ignored.

Used range
: User range setting (Offset value: 5mA, Gain value: 18mA)
In this setting, because the lower limit value is an analog value at the time the
digital value is -12000, it is -8mA.
Therefore, the input signal error detection upper and lower limit values are as
follows:
Input signal error detection upper limit value = 18 + (18-5) x 150/1000 = 19.95mA
Input signal error detection lower limit value = -8 - (18-5) x 150/1000 = -9.95mA
(5) Refer to Section 3.2.3 for details of the input signal error detection function.
(1) Set the input signal error detection upper limit value to less than 25mA.
If the setting is 25mA or more, the error may not be detected.
(2) If a value outside the setting range is set, an error occurs and an error code is
stored in the Error code (Un\G19). In this case, the operation is performed
based on the setting before the error detection.

Wiring
The wiring precautions and examples of module connection are provided below.
4.4.1
Wiring precautions
In order to optimize the functions of the A/D converter module and ensure system
reliability, external wiring that is protected from noise is required.
Please observe the following precautions for external wiring:
(1) Use separate cables for the AC control circuit and the external input signals of the
Q68AD-G to prevent influences of AC surge or induction.
(2) Use separate cables for the AC control circuit, the external input signals and external
supply power of the Q66AD-DG to avoid influences of AC side surge or induction.
(3) Keep a distance among the main circuit line, a high-voltage cable and a load cable
from other than the programmable controller.
Failure to do so may increase the effects of noise, surges and induction.
(4) The shield wire or the shield of the shielded cable must be grounded at one end.
(5) When wiring to the module placed on the right side of the Q66AD-DG is difficult,
remove the Q66AD-DG before wiring.

Remark
If the external wiring is disconnected during use of voltage input on the Q68AD-G,
depending on the internal circuit characteristics, a certain time is required until the
digital output reaches a value equivalent to 0V.
To avoid the phenomenon, connect a resistor (approximately 1M

Always ground the shield of the wire of each channel.
The check terminals (CHK+, CHK-) are used to check the amount of input in mA in relation to the
2-wire transmitter output.
This can be checked since analog inputs of 4 to 20mA are converted to analog outputs of 1 to 5V.
The relationship of this conversion can be expressed by the following formula:
Analog output(V) =

Do not connect any devices to the P terminal because the transmitter power supply is always on.
Remark
The Q66AD-DG needs to powered on 30 minutes prior to operation for compliance to the specification (accuracy).
Therefore, power on 30 minutes prior to offset/gain setting or after online module
change.

When using the user range setting, make the offset/gain setting according to the operation
indicated in Section 4.6.1 or Section 4.6.2.

If the utility package is installed, perform the offset/gain settings according to the
procedure described in Section 5.6.2.
OVERVIEW

SETUP AND PROCEDURES BEFORE OPERATION
(1) Perform the offset/gain settings in the range that satisfies the conditions
specified in POINT of Section 3.1.2 (2).
When the setting exceeds this range, the maximum resolution or total
accuracy may not be within the range indicated in the performance
specification.
(2) Though the offset/gain settings can be performed on multiple channels at the
same time, set the offset and gain separately (0 at either of the buffer memory
addresses 22, 23).
If channels are set at Un\G22 and Un\G23 at the same time, an error will
occur and the ERR. LED will be lit.
(3) After the offset/gain settings are completed, verify that the offset and gain
values have been set correctly under actual usage conditions.
(4) The offset and gain values are stored into the Flash memory and are not
erased at power-off.
(5) At the time of offset/gain setting, turn ON the user range write request (YA) to
write the values to the Flash memory.
Data can be written to the Flash memory up to 100 thousand times.
To prevent accidental write to the Flash memory, an error will occur and the
error code Un\G19 will be stored if write is performed 26 consecutive times.
(6) If an error (error code: 40 *1) occurs during offset/gain setting, re-set the
correct offset/gain value.
The offset/gain value of the channel where the error has occurred is not
written to the module.(*1: indicates the corresponding channel number.)
(7) Module ready (X0) turns from OFF to ON when the offset/gain setting mode
switches to the normal mode by the dedicated instruction (G(P).OFFGAN) or
the setting of the mode switching setting (Un\G158, Un\G159).
Note that initial setting processing will be executed if there is a sequence
program that makes initial setting when module ready (X0) turns ON.
(8) Un\G200, Un\G202 to Un\G233 are the areas used to restore the User-set
offset/gain values when online module change is made.
Refer to Chapter 7 for details of online module change.

Handling precautions
The following explains the precautions on using the GX Configurator-AD.
(1) For safety
Since GX Configurator-AD is add-in software for GX Developer, read "Safety Precautions" and the basic operating procedures in the GX Developer Operating Manual.
(2) About installation
GX Configurator-AD is add-in software for GX Developer Version 4 or later.
Therefore, GX Configurator-AD must be installed on the personal computer that has
already GX Developer Version 4 or later installed.
(3) Screen error of Intelligent function module utility
Insufficient system resource may cause the screen to be displayed inappropriately
while using the Intelligent function module utility.
If this occurs, close the Intelligent function module utility, GX Developer (program,
comments, etc.), and other applications, and then start GX Developer and Intelligent
function module utility again.
(4) To start the Intelligent function module utility
(a) In GX Developer, select "QCPU (Q mode)" for PLC series and specify a project.
If any PLC series other than "QCPU (Q mode)" is selected, or if no project is specified, the Intelligent function module utility will not start.
(b) Multiple Intelligent function module utilities can be started.
However, [Open parameters] and [Save parameters] operations under [Intelligent
function module parameter] are allowed for one Intelligent function module utility
only. Only the [Monitor/test] operation is allowed for the other utilities.
(5) Switching between two or more Intelligent function module utilities
When two or more Intelligent function module utility screens cannot be displayed side
by side, select a screen to be displayed on the top of others using the task bar.

Programming example without using the utility package
The dedicated instructions used for reading/writing the buffer memory of the
intelligent function module on a remote I/O station (REMTO and REMFR) are the
execution type for which several scans are needed. Therefore, transmissions of
the execution results are not synchronized with the I/O signal operations. When
reading a digital output value on an A/D converter module after changing the
operating condition during operation, be sure to read the A/D conversion
completed flag (buffer memory address 10) at the same time.
Also, for the case of changing the operating condition, insert an interlock to
prevent the execution of the REMFR instruction.

The dedicated instructions used for reading/writing the buffer memory of the
intelligent function module on a remote I/O station (REMTO and REMFR) are the
execution type for which several scans are needed. Therefore, transmissions of
the execution results are not synchronized with the I/O signal operations. When
reading a digital output value on an A/D converter module after changing the
operating condition during operation, be sure to read the A/D conversion
completed flag (buffer memory address 10) at the same time.
Also, for the case of changing the operating condition, insert an interlock to
prevent the execution of the REMFR instruction.

SETUP AND
PROCEDURES
BEFORE OPERATION
(1) Perform an online module change after making sure that the system outside
the programmable controller will not malfunction.
(2) To prevent an electric shock and malfunction of operating modules, provide
means such as switches for powering off each of the external power supply
and external devices connected to the module to be replaced online.
(3) After the module has failed, data may not be saved properly. Referring to
Section 3.4.23, therefore, prerecord the data to be saved (offset/gain values
of the industrial shipment settings and user range settings in the buffer
memory).
(4) It is recommended to perform an online module change in the actual system
in advance to ensure that it would not affect the other modules by checking
the following:
• Means of cutting off the connection to external devices and its
configuration are correct.
• Switching ON/OFF does not bring any undesirable effect.
(5) Do not install/remove the module to/from the base unit more than 50 times
after the first use of the product. (IEC 61131-2 compliant)
Failure to do so may cause malfunction.

Precautions for Online Module Change
The following are the precautions for online module change.
(1) Always perform an online module change in the correct procedure. A failure to do so
can cause a malfunction or failure.
(2) If an online module change is made with the user range setting, the accuracy after that
will fall to about less than three times of the accuracy before that.
Re-set the offset/gain values as necessary.

Note that initial setting processing will be executed if there is a sequence
program that makes initial setting when Module ready (X0) turns ON.
(2) When one mode is switched to the other (the normal mode is switched to the
offset/gain setting mode or the offset/gain setting mode is switched to the
normal mode), the A/D converter module suspends A/D conversion and
switches OFF the power supply to the 2-wire transmitter.
To resume A/D conversion and power supply to the 2-wire transmitter, turn
ON the operating condition setting request (Y9) after the mode is switched to
the normal mode.
(2) Operation error
No errors.

(1) Functions
(a) Reads the offset/gain values of the user range setting of the A/D converter
module to the CPU.
(b) There are two types of interlock signals for the G(P).OGLOAD instruction: the
completion device (D) and the status display device at completion (D) + 1.
1) Completion device
Turns ON in the END processing of the scan where the G(P).OGLOAD instruction is completed, and turns OFF in the next END processing.
2) Status display device at completion
Turns ON and OFF depending on the completion status of the G(P).OGLOAD
instruction.
Normal completion : Stays OFF and does not change.
Abnormal completion: Turns ON in the END processing of the scan where the
G(P).OGLOAD instruction is completed, and turns OFF in the next END
