Introduction
This manual describes the operator terminals MAC 10/MTA-10 and
MAC 12/MTA-12. Herafter these products are referred to as the terminal.
In the manual we refer to the software package MAC Programmer+/
SW-MTA-WIN for Windows and MAC Programmer/SW-MTA for DOS.
Hereafter these products are referred to as the PC software.
The operator terminal is developed for use with the MELSEC FX0 and FX
PLC system to simplify man-machine communication.
The functions incorporated in the terminal include those for displaying
text with dynamic values, for maneuvring objects and for time channel
control.
Programming of the terminal is achieved by means of a personal computer and the PC software. In MAC 10/MTA-10 you can use the preprogrammed application supplied as a part of the product.
In addition to the sections describing the functions found in the terminal
and installation of the terminal, there is a section on how to use the preprogrammed application and another on how to use the PC software to
program the terminal. Several useful programming examples and a reference
guide are found in this manual.
When combined, the terminal and an FX0 PLC form an integrated system
for completely replacing hard-wired timers, counters and relays used in
very small automation applications such as individual machine control.

How to program the terminal
4.4
Text and system blocks
The main functional tool in the terminal is textblocks. These are used for
building up applications. Textblocks are used to build up individual menus, between which you can define jumps. Textblocks can also present the
status and value of different signals.
A textblock can contain an unlimited number of lines, each of up to 16 characters in length. Textblocks are defined using the PC software on a personal computer.
Each block has its own identity number. The first block, the one that is displayed on power up, is always number 0. This block is also called the
"Main menu". The following blocks are numbered from 1 to 999.
The block numbers 990-999 are reserved for system blocks. Block number
991 is used in the terminal for the time channels.
Select New in the block list. Now the block header is displayed. The following parameters can be assigned to textblocks:
Block no:
Type in a block number or press [F9] to select from a menu. The first text
block of a project must be assigned the number 0.
Block name:
Type in any name of your choice for the textblock. The name can be up to
15 characters long. The name is optional.
11
How to program the terminal
Block width:
Line length is 16 characters, this cannot be altered.
Display signal:
You can assign a signal which is used by the PLC-program to display the
textblock. The textblock is displayed when the signal is activated.
Status
This is where you can define the status word for the textblock. Press the
button Status.. to display a list of those functions which influence the status words displayed. Functions can be assigned by selecting either YES or
NO. The status words displayed will depend on the combination of YES
and NO you select. See Reference Guide for information on the functions
that effects the status word.
When you have completed parameter setting, press [OK] to edit textblocks. See the PC software user manual for more information.
4.5
Static and dynamic information
You can manipulate two types of information in textblocks, static text and
dynamic data object. Static text does not change during the execution of a
program. There are 7 types of dynamic object: digital, analog, jump, date/
time, bar graph, multiple choice and text. The character # defines a dynamic field. The diagram below shows how a channel number can be linked
to a dynamic object in a project.

Digital dynamic object
The timers and counters in FX0, FX0N and FX have four different values;
input condition, output status (digital), preset value and actual value.
When the PLC program is written it is clear which value that is referred,
due to the position in the relay ladder diagram.
12
How to program the terminal
When the terminal should access the preset or actual value it must defined
with PRE or ACT. When a timer or counter is used in a digital object, it will
always display the status of the output.

Databuffer
MAC 12/MTA-12
This function means that an area of the battery memory is used as an extra
memory bank for the PLC system. The PLC program determines what is
to be read/written as well as when/where it is to be done.
The size of the memory bank is configured in the terminal. The available
buffer area depends on how much project memory is used (maximum
project memory is 8000 bytes).
The PLC program communicates with the memory bank in the terminal
via a data control block (4 registers) in the PLC system. The position in the
memory area to read from or write to is stated with an index.

Programming example
When planning an application there are a number of things to take into
consideration. For instance, which blocks should you use and how do you
change blocks? We will now try to answer some questions that may arise.
7.1
Structuring textblocks according to
application
Signals linked to the same object are normally shown together. Suppose
we have an application involving 3 motors. The following menu tree can
then be made for the blocks:
0
Choice of menu
1
2
3
Motor 1
Motor 2
Motor 3
Menu 1, 2, 3
For instance, block 2 would look like:
MOTOR 2 IS ON
RUN TIME:20 MIN
7.2
-digital value
-timer value
Changing text block on display
The possibilities that exist for moving between different blocks in Run
mode are defined by the application in the terminal, perhaps in conjunction with the PLC program. Note that there may be several ways of
moving to a particular block.
Jumping between blocks
Make a jump object in the displayed block and use it to jump to another
block. This function is completely independent of the PLC program.
25
Programming example
Block changing controlled by the PLC program
When selecting a textblock, define the digital signal that, when activated,
displays the text block. In this example we define that text block 5 is displayed when signal X0 is activated.
Returning to the previous block used
We are in block 20 and want to jump back to the previous block (10, 11 or
12) we were using.
Block 10
Disp. sign. M200
Block 11
Block 12
Disp. sign. M201
Disp. sign. M202
Block 20
RETURN
26
Programming example
M200-M202 are the display signals for blocks 10-12. In block 20 we make
a digital object:
To move to block 20 we make jump objects in blocks 10-12.
The PLC program looks like this:
D0 = current block
D1 = the block displayed before block 20
M0
RST
M300
Check if D0=20
M8000
CMP
D0
K20
M10
M11
PLS

When M300 is activated we compare D1 with K10-K12 to know which
block to jump back to.

Programming example
7.3
Setting date and time
To set the right date and time in Run mode, you have to create a manoeuvrable date/time object in a block. If you only want to change the date or
time you must create 2 object to avoid problems with the cursor in Runtime mode - one with date only and one with time only.
If you want to show a weekday as well, you have to create a third block
with the day of the week only. You can never change a weekday, this is automatically calculated from the date entered.
It is possible to have manoeuvrable date/time objects in several blocks.
Of course, a change in one block will then affect those in other blocks.
Note that setting the format for date and time is carried out in configuration mode.
Note!
The real-time clock can handle the years from 1970 to 2035. If you type in 00 this means the year
2000. If you want to enter the year 1993, press the [-] until 93 is displayed. If you want to enter
the year 2010, press the [+] until 10 is displayed.
29
Programming example
7.4
Control by time
Use a time channel to control a signal.
Note!
If the digital signal linked to the time channel exists in the program as an OUT instruction, the
PLC program takes command. If this condition is not valid then the signal remains inactive.
Changing time channel intervals on-line
To make it possible to change time channel intervals during Run mode,
you must select YES for time channels under Online changes in Set-up mode.
To change intervals on-line, jump to block 991 (system block for time
channels).
7.5
Operating machine status
In this example we have a mixer with functions for emptying, filling, rotation and heating. It is not possible to force a heating value.
30
Programming example
By typing in YES for Man 000:, Man 001:, and Man 010: it is possible to force these statuses. A NO for Man 110 means that you cannot force this status.

Selection list
In this example we want to check the status of a certain pump. A selection
causes a jump to the textblock in which data for the pump is collected online.
- SELECT PUMP #PUMP 1
#PUMP 2
#PUMP 3
The textblock in programming mode
When the textblock with selection list is displayed, we want the cursor to
be positioned on the first jump object, not the top left corner in Run mode.
We therefore type in YES for the 1:st man obj of the status word menu.
31
Programming example
7.7
Dynamic text blocks
By setting the status Remove not used signals for a textblock the same textblock can be used for different but similar applications. For example, a
project can consist of 10 lines for setting preset values, 0-10, but in the PLC
program only presets 2-5 are used. If the status Remove not used signals is
set, only those lines with selected presets will be displayed, that is, 2-5.
7.8
How much can be stored for a project
A maximum of 3900 bytes in MAC 10/MTA-10 and 8000 bytes in
MAC 12/MTA-12 can be stored for a project application. This amount can
be divided freely into different functions. The list below shows how many
bytes each function requires:

Run mode
In Run mode you can display machine function status and control a process from the terminal. The terminal will enter Run mode automatically
on terminal power-up and text block 0 will be displayed.
The functions of the different objects during Run mode are described below. They do not correspond to the actual menu selection during terminal
operation.
Textblock
A textblock consists of text lines of static words and dynamic objects.
Heating time 7.3s
The dynamic objects show the current status of the signals to which the
objects are linked.
Certain dynamic data fields are manoeuvrable, which means that it is possible to change their status and value on-line. To change a manoeuvrable
object, use the arrow keys to position the cursor on the required object. To
change status of a digital object, press [+] or [-]. Analog and Date/Time
objects are changed by positioning the cursor on the required object and
then using the [+] or [-] key to increase or decrease the value respectively.
A multichoice object is changed by first using the arrow keys to position
the cursor on the required object and then pressing [+] to display a menu
of the statuses that can be changed. Move to the appropriate status, press
[+] and the 3 digital signals which are linked to the status will be forced.
