Quick Start for Experienced Users
This chapter can help you to get started using the SLC 500 Modular
Processors. We base the procedures here on the assumption that you
have an understanding of SLC 500 products. You should understand
electronic process control and be able to interpret the ladder logic
instructions required to generate the electronic signals that control
your application.
Because it is a start-up guide for experienced users, this chapter does
not contain detailed explanations about the procedures listed. It does,
however, reference other chapters in this book where you can get
more information.
If you have any questions or are unfamiliar with the terms used or
concepts presented in the procedural steps, always read the
referenced chapters and other recommended documentation before
trying to apply the information.

Install the processor.
IMPORTANT
Reference
If your processor has a battery — the battery is an option for the SLC 5/01
(1747-L511) processor — make sure it is connected before installing your
processor into the chassis. This provides memory backup for your processor
should the controller power supply fail.
Make sure system power is off. Then insert the processor into the 1746 chassis.

Selecting Your Hardware Components
Principles of Machine Control
You enter a ladder logic program into the controller by using the
software. The logic program is based on your electrical relay print
diagrams. It contains instructions that direct control of your
application.
With the ladder logic program entered into the controller, placing the
controller in the Run mode initiates an operating cycle. The
controller’s operating cycle consists of a series of operations
performed sequentially and repeatedly, unless altered by your ladder
logic program.

milliseconds.
2. Program scan - The time required for the processor to execute
the instruction in the program. The program scan time varies
depending on the instruction used and each instruction’s status
during the scan time.
IMPORTANT
Subroutine and interrupt instructions within your logic
program may cause deviations in the way the operating
cycle is sequenced.
3. Output scan - The time required for the controller to scan and
write all output data; typically accomplished within a few
milliseconds.
4. Service communication - The part of the operating cycle in
which communication takes place with other devices, such as an
HHT or a personal computer.
5. Housekeeping and overhead - The time spent on memory.

Protocol Options
EtherNet TCP/IP Protocol - Standard Ethernet, utilizing the TCP/IP
protocol, is used as the backbone network in many office and
industrial buildings. Ethernet is a local area network that provides
communication between various devices at 10/100 Mbps. This
network provides the same capabilities as DH+ or DH-485 networks,
plus:
• SNMP support for Ethernet network management.
• optional dynamic configuration of IP addresses by using a
BOOTP/DHCP utility.
• SLC 5/05 Ethernet data rate up to 40 times faster than SLC 5/04
DH+ messaging.
• ability to message entire SLC 5/05 data files.
• much greater number of nodes on a single network possible
compared to DH-485 (32) and DH+ (64).
Data Highway Plus (DH+) Protocol - The Data Highway Plus protocol
is used by the PLC-5 family of processors and the SLC 5/04 processor.
This protocol is similar to DH-485, except that it can support up to 64
devices (nodes) and runs at faster communication (baud) rates.

34
Selecting Your Hardware Components
DH-485 Protocol - The SLC 500 processors have a DH-485 channel
that supports the DH-485 communication network. This network is a
multi-master, token-passing network protocol capable of supporting
up to 32 devices (nodes). This protocol allows:
• monitoring data and processor status, along with program
uploading and downloading of any device on the network from
one location.
• SLC processors to pass data to each other (peer-to-peer
communication).
• operator interface devices on the network to access data from
any SLC processor on the network.
DF1 full-duplex protocol - DF1 full-duplex protocol (also referred to
as DF1 point-to-point protocol) lets two devices communicate with
each other at the same time. This protocol allows:
• transmission of information across modems (dial-up, leased line,
radio, or direct cable connections).
• communication to occur between Allen-Bradley products and
third-party products.
DF1 half-duplex protocol (master and slave) - DF1 half-duplex
protocol provides a multi-drop single master/multiple slave network
capable of supporting up to 255 devices (nodes). This protocol also
provides modem support and is ideal for SCADA (Supervisory Control
and Data Acquisition) applications because of the network capability.
ASCII protocol - The ASCII protocol provides connection to other
ASCII devices, such as bar code readers, weigh scales, serial printers,
and other intelligent devices.
DF1 radio modem protocol - The DF1 radio modem protocol,
optimized for use with radio modem networks, is a hybrid between
DF1 full-duplex protocol and DF1 half-duplex protocol. DF1 radio
modem:
• supports Store and Forward capability.
• uses a node address (0...254) on channel 0.
Modbus RTU (Remote Terminal Unit) transmission mode Master protocol The Modbus RTU Master protocol provides communication between Modbus
RTU devices through a multi-drop single-master/multiple-slaves network.
This protocol is capable of supporting up to 247 slave devices (nodes).

Selecting Your Hardware Components
Selecting Discrete I/O
Modules
There are three types of discrete I/O modules: input, output, and
combination. They are available in a wide variety of densities
including 4, 8, 16, and 32 point and can interface to ac, dc, and TTL
voltage levels. Output modules are available with solid-state ac,
solid-state dc, and relay contact type outputs.
For a complete listing of discrete I/O modules and specifications,
contact your Allen-Bradley sales office for the latest selection guide,
publication 1747-SG001.
Selecting Specialty I/O
Modules
The SLC 500 family offers specialty I/O modules that enhance your
control system. Modules range in function from analog interface to
motion control, from communication to high-speed counting.
For a complete listing of specialty I/O modules and their
specifications, contact your Allen-Bradley sales office for the latest
selection guide, 1747-SG001.
Selecting Power Supplies
To select a power supply, you need:
• power supply specifications.
• power supply worksheet, one for each chassis.
• SLC 500 Systems Selection Guide, publication 1747-SG001.
When configuring a modular system, you must have a power supply
for each chassis. Careful system configuration will result in the best
performance. Excessive loading of the power supply outputs can
cause a power supply shutdown or premature failure.
There are three different ac power supplies and four dc power
supplies. For ac power supplies, the 120/240V selection is made by a
jumper. Place the jumper to match the input voltage.
ATTENTION
Ensure that the power supply jumper is in the correct position
before supplying power to the SLC 500 system or personal
injury or damage to the system may result.
SLC power supplies have an status indicator that illuminates when the
power supply is functioning properly.

Selecting Your Hardware Components
Selecting Enclosures
The enclosure protects the equipment from atmospheric
contamination. Standards established by the National Electrical
Manufacturer’s Association (NEMA) define enclosure types, based on
the degree of protection an enclosure will provide. Use a fan to
circulate the air of sealed enclosures that use convection cooling to
dissipate heat. Select a NEMA-rated enclosure that suits your
application and environment. The enclosure should be equipped with
a disconnect device. To calculate the heat dissipation of your
controller, see appendix H.
Selecting Operator
Interfaces

To program a memory module, refer to your programming software
user manual or help resource. Follow this procedure to program a
memory module.
1. Set the memory module configuration bits (S:1/10 to S:1/12) in
your offline program file. Refer to SLC 500 Instruction Set
Reference Manual, publication 1747-RM001, for details on the
Memory Module Configuration Bits.
2. Download your program file to your processor.
3. Go online with the processor and burn the program to the

EEPROM Burning Options
You can burn a program into an EEPROM memory module using a
processor that is the same or different from the one used to run the
program. When burning EEPROMs, keep the following conditions in
mind:
• The processor burning the EEPROM must be of the same type
and have the same OS version or lower than the target
processor.

• The program size cannot exceed the processor memory size. For
instance, an SLC 5/01 4 K processor can burn an EEPROM for a
SLC 5/01 1 K processor as long as the program does not exceed
1 K.
• The I/O and chassis configuration of the burning processor does
not have to match the I/O configuration of the program being
burned.
• You do not have to enter the Run mode before burning an
EEPROM. If the run mode is entered and the chassis
configuration does not match, a major fault will occur. If you
burn an EEPROM while in the fault mode, the fault will also be
saved in the EEPROM.
The following table summarizes the above conditions as to the type of
processor you can use to burn EEPROMs for other processors.

Selecting Your Hardware Components
Selecting Isolation
Transformers
If there is high frequency conducted noise in or around your
distribution equipment, use an isolation transformer in the ac line to
the power supply. This type of transformer provides isolation from
your power distribution system and is often used as a step down
transformer to reduce line voltage. Any transformer used with the
controller must have a sufficient power rating for its load. This power
rating is generally expressed in voltamperes (VA).
To select an appropriate isolation transformer, calculate the power
required by the chassis power supply (or supplies if more than one
chassis in system) and any input circuits and output loads that are
connected through this transformer.
You can find the power requirement (VA rating) for the chassis power
supplies in the specifications starting on page 177. The power requirement for
the input circuits is determined by the number of inputs, the operating voltage,
and the nominal input current. The power requirement for output loads is
determined by the number of outputs, the load voltage, and load current.
For example, if you have a 1746-P1 power supply, a 16-point ac input
module, catalog number 1746-IA16, (12 mA at 120V ac) and a 16-point
ac triac output module, catalog number 1746-OA16, (0.5A at 120V ac),
the power consumed would be:
135VA + (16)(120V)(0.012 A) + (16)(120V)(0.5 A) = 1118VA
IMPORTANT
In this case, 0.5 A is the maximum rating of the triac output at 30
°C (86 °F). If the load draws less than 0.5 A, this figure may be
reduced accordingly. The output portion of the VA calculation
should reflect the current requirements of selected loads.
In general, we recommend that the transformer is oversized to
provide some margin for line voltage variations and other factors.
Typically a transformer that is 25% larger than the calculated VA is
sufficient.
Most industrial environments are susceptible to power transients or
spikes. To help insure fault-free operation and protection of
equipment, use suppression devices on power line to the equipment
in addition to the isolation equipment.

Selecting Your Hardware Components
Special Considerations
47
The recommendations given previously provide favorable operating
conditions for most controller installations. Some applications may
involve adverse conditions, such as excessive line voltage variations
and/of excessive noise, as described below. Additional measures can
be taken to minimize the effect of these conditions.
Class I, Division 2 Applications
IMPORTANT
When installing peripheral devices (for example, push buttons,
lamps) into a hazardous environment, ensure that they are Class
I, Division 2 certified, or determined to be safe for the
environment.
Excessive Line Voltage Variations
The best solution for excessive line voltage variation is to correct any
feeder problems in your distribution system. Where this does not
solve the line variation problem, or in certain critical applications, use
a constant voltage transformer. If you require a constant voltage
transformer, connect it to the power supply and all input devices
connected to the SLC 500 controller.
Connect output devices on the same power line, but their connection
along the power line is normally made before the constant voltage
transformer. A constant voltage transformer must have a sufficient
power rating for its load.
Excessive Noise
When operating the SLC 500 controller in an environment with a high
amount of electrical noise, give special consideration to the possibility
of electrical interference.
The following reduces the effect of electrical interference.
•
•
•
•
•
SLC 500 controller design features
Proper mounting of controller within an enclosure
Proper equipment grounding
Proper routing of wires (power, communication, control lines)
Proper suppression added to noise generating devices
Potential sources of noise include inductive loads, such as relays,
solenoids, and motor starters when operated by hard contacts like
push buttons or selector switches. Suppression may be necessary

Artisan Technology Group - Quality Instrumentation ... Guaranteed | (888) 88-SOURCE | www.artisantg.com
48
Selecting Your Hardware Components
when such loads are connected as output devices or when connected
to the same supply line that powers the controller.
Lack of surge suppression on inductive loads may contribute to
processor faults and sporadic operation. RAM can be corrupted (lost)
and I/O modules may appear to be faulty or reset themselves.
For extremely noisy environments, use a memory module and
program it for auto-loading on processor fault or power cycle for
quick recovery.
Selecting Surge Suppressors
Most output modules have built-in surge suppression to reduce the
effects of high voltage transients. However, you should use an
additional suppression device if an output module is being used to
control an inductive device such as:
•
•
•
•
relays.
motor starters.
solenoids.
motors.
Additional suppression is especially important if your inductive device
is in series with or parallel to a hard contact such as:
• push buttons.
• selector switches.
By adding a suppression device directly across the coil of an inductive
device, you reduce the effects of voltage transients caused by
interrupting the current to that inductive device and prolong the life of
the switch contacts. You also prevent electrical noise from radiating
into system wiring. The diagram below shows an output module with
a suppression device.

If you connect an SLC 500 controller triac output to control an
inductive load, use varistors to suppress noise. Choose a varistor that
is appropriate for the application. We recommend the following surge
suppressors for triac outputs when switching 120V ac inductive loads:
• Harris MOV, part number V220 MA2A
• Allen-Bradley MOV, catalog number 599-K04 or 599-KA04,
Series C or later.
Consult the varistor manufacturer’s data sheet when selecting a
varistor for your application.
ATTENTION
Damage could occur to SLC 500 triac outputs if you use
suppressors having RC networks and the triac load current is 15
mA or less.

Allen-Bradley relays, contactors, and starters are shown in the table

Suitable surge suppression methods for inductive ac load devices
include a varistor, an RC network, or an Allen-Bradley surge
suppressor. These components must be appropriately rated to
suppress the switching transient characteristic of the particular
inductive device.
For inductive dc load devices, a diode is suitable. A diode, catalog
number 1N4004, is acceptable for most applications.
A surge suppressor can also be used. See the table on page 49.
Locate the suppression device as close as possible to the load device.

For the SLC 500 products listed above, the maximum duration of the
transient pulse occurs when minimum load is connected to the
output. However, for most applications the energy of the transient
pulse is not sufficient to energize the load.
ATTENTION
A transient pulse occurs in transistor outputs when the external
dc supply voltage is applied to the common output terminals (for
example, via the master control relay). The sudden application of
voltage creates this transient pulse. (See the following graph.)
This condition is inherent in transistor outputs and is common to
solid state devices. A transient pulse can occur regardless of the
processor having power or not.

To reduce the possibility of inadvertent operation of devices
connected to transistor outputs, adhere to the following guidelines:
• Either ensure that any programmable device connected to the
transistor output is programmed to ignore all output signals until
after the transient pulse has ended,
• Add an external resistor in parallel to the load to increase the
on-state load current. The duration of the transient pulse is
reduced when the on-state load current is increased.
The duration of the transient pulse is proportional to the load

Increasing the load current by 100 mA decreases the transient

use the following information:

(taken from graph).
R (W) = V (Volts)/I (Amps)
Resistor value (Ohms) = Applied voltage (Volts)/Desired current

System Installation Recommendations
Preventing Excessive Heat
For most applications, normal convection cooling will keep the SLC 500
controller components within the specified operating range of 0 °C...60 °C
(32 °F...140 °F). Proper spacing of components within the enclosure is usually
sufficient for heat dissipation.
In some applications, a substantial amount of heat is produced by other
equipment inside or outside the enclosure. In this case, place blower fans
inside the enclosure to assist in air circulation and to reduce hot spots near the
SLC 500 controller.
Additional cooling provisions might be necessary when high ambient
temperatures are encountered.
IMPORTANT
Do not bring in unfiltered outside air. It may introduce harmful
contaminants of dirt that could cause improper operation or
damage to components. In extreme cases, you may need to use
air conditioning to protect against heat build-up within the
enclosure.

• Use a steel enclosure to guard against electromagnetic interference
(EMI).
• Make sure the enclosure door viewing window is a laminated screen or a
conductive optical substrate (to block EMI).
• Install a bonding wire for electrical contact between the door and the
enclosure; do not rely on the hinge.
IMPORTANT
Do not lay one ground lug directly on top of the other; this type
of connection can become loose due to compression of the
metal lugs. Place the first lug between a star washer and a nut
with a captive star washer. After tightening the nut, place the
second lug between the first nut and a second nut with a
captive star washer.
Connect Ground Bus to Grounding-Electrode System
The grounding-electrode system is at earth-ground potential and is the central
ground for all electrical equipment and ac power within any facility. Use a
grounding-electrode conductor to connect the ground bus to the
grounding-electrode system. Use at minimum 8.3 mm2 (#8 AWG) copper wire
for the grounding-electrode conductor to guard against EMI. The National
Electrical Code specifies safety requirements for the grounding-electrode
conductor.

Master Control Relay
A hard-wired master control relay (supplied by you) provides a convenient
means for emergency controller shutdown. Since the master control relay
allows the placement of several emergency-stop switches in different locations,
its installation is important from a safety standpoint. Overtravel limit switches
or mushroom head push buttons are wired in series so that when any of them
opens, the master control relay is de-energized. This removes power to input
and output device circuits.
ATTENTION
IMPORTANT
Never alter these circuits to defeat their function, since serious
injury and/or machine damage could occur.
If you are using a dc power supply, interrupt the dc side rather
than the ac side to avoid the additional delay of power supply
turn-on and turn-off. The dc power supply should receive its
power directly from the fused secondary of the transformer.
Connect the power to the dc input and output circuits through a
set of master control relay contacts.
Place the main power disconnect switch where operators and maintenance
personnel have quick and easy access to it. If you mount a disconnect switch
inside the controller enclosure, place the switch operating handle on the
outside of the enclosure, so that you can disconnect power without opening
the enclosure.
Publication 1747-UM011G-EN-P - June 2008
Artisan Technology Group - Quality Instrumentation ... Guaranteed | (888) 88-SOURCE | www.artisantg.com
System Installation Recommendations
67
Whenever any of the emergency-stop switches are opened, power to input and
output devices is stopped.
When you use the master control relay to remove power from the external I/O
circuits, power continues to be provided to the controller’s power supply so
that diagnostic indicators on the processor can still be observed.
The master control relay is not a substitute for a disconnect to the controller. It
is intended for any situation where the operator must quickly de-energize I/O
devices only. When inspecting or installing terminal connections, replacing
output fuses, or working on equipment within the enclosure, use the
disconnect to shut off power to the rest of the system.
IMPORTANT
The operator must not control the master control relay with the
processor. Provide the operator with the safety of a direct
connection between an emergency-stop switch and the master
control relay.
Emergency-Stop Switches
Adhere to the following points concerning emergency-stop switches.
• Do not program emergency-stop switches in the controller program.
Any emergency-stop switch should turn off all machine power by
turning off the master control relay.
• Observe all applicable local codes concerning the placement and
labeling of emergency-stop switches.
• Install emergency-stop switches and the master control relay in your
system. Make certain that relay contacts have a sufficient rating for your
application. Emergency-stop switches must be easy to reach. See the
schematic on page 69.

System Installation Recommendations
Power Considerations
Refer to the following sections regarding power.
Common Power Source
All chassis power supplies should have the same power source as the input and
output devices. This helps reduce the chance of electrical interference due to
multiple sources and grounds as well as helps maintain system integrity if
power is interrupted.
The processor detects the absence of power to any chassis in the system. If
power to any chassis is lost (or not yet applied), the CPU FAULT status
indicator turns on and all controller outputs in the local chassis are
de-energized. Output states in any remote chassis are determined by
configuration settings at that chassis.
This fault detection makes it necessary that you apply power to the expansion
chassis before you apply power to the chassis containing the processor to
avoid an unwanted fault. Of course, applying power in sequence is unnecessary
if all chassis have a common power source.
Isolation Transformer
In many industrial applications, a step-down transformer is required to reduce
line voltage to 120 or 240V ac. This transformer also provides isolation to
protect equipment from high voltage transients that may be generated on your
power distribution system.
ATTENTION
Your SLC 500 power supply can be damaged by voltage surges
when switching inductive loads such as motors, motor starters,
solenoids, and relays. To avoid damage to your SLC 500 power
supply in these applications, use an isolation transformer to
isolate the power supply from harmful voltage surges.

System Installation Recommendations
Loss of Power Source
The chassis power supplies are designed to withstand brief power losses
without affecting the operation of the system. The time the system is
operational during power loss is called program scan hold-up time after loss of
power. The duration of the power supply hold-up time depends on the
number, type, and state of the I/O modules, but is typically 20 ms...3 s. When
the duration of power loss reaches a limit, the power supply signals the
processor that it can no longer provide adequate dc power to the system. This
is referred to as a power supply shutdown. The power supply status indicator is
turned off.
In multi-chassis systems, power outages of 20...300 ms in duration can cause a
remote power fail error to occur. You can clear this error by cycling power to
your system or by using a programming device.
Input States on Power Down
The power supply hold-up time as described above is generally longer than the
turn-on and turn-off times of the input modules. Because of this, the input
state change from On to Off that occurs when power is removed may be
recorded by the processor before the power supply shuts down the system.
Understanding this concept is important. Write the user program to take this
effect into account. For example, hard-wire power to one spare input. In the
user program, check to be sure that one input is on; otherwise, jump to the end
of the program and avoid scanning the logic. Use of a common power source
as recommended in the previous section is assumed.
Power Supply Undervoltage Operation
SLC 500 controllers continue to operate (hold-up) for a short period of time if
the input voltage to the power supply drops below the recommended
operating voltage range. The controller continues to scan the user program
and control I/O during this time. CPU hold-up time is 20 ms...3 s depending
on the power supply and loading.
SLC 500 controllers turn OFF (stop scanning and disable outputs) if input
voltage to the power supply is removed or drops below the recommended
operating range for a period exceeding the CPU hold-up time. The controller
resumes operation automatically when the input voltage is restored to normal.
If the input voltage to the 1746-P7 power supply falls into a range of 4...9V for
a period exceeding the CPU hold-up time, the controller turns OFF and will
not turn back ON until the input voltage is increased to 11V dc.

System Installation Recommendations
Safety Considerations
Safety considerations are an important element of proper system installation.
Actively thinking about the safety of yourself and others, as well as the
condition of your equipment, is of primary importance.
Disconnecting Main Power
Locate the main power disconnect switch where operators and maintenance
personnel have quick and easy access to it. Ideally, the disconnect switch is
mounted on the outside of the enclosure, so that it can be accessed without
opening the enclosure. In addition to disconnecting electrical power,
de-energize all other sources of power (pneumatic and hydraulic) before
working on a machine or process controlled by an SLC controller.
Safety Circuits
Circuits installed on the machine for safety reasons, like overtravel limit
switches, stop push buttons, and interlocks, should always be hard-wired
directly to the master control relay. These devices must be wired in series so
that when any one device opens, the master control relay is de-energized
thereby removing power to the machine. Never alter these circuits to defeat
their function. Serious injury or machine damage could result.
Power Distribution
There are some points about power distribution that you should be aware of.
First, the master control relay must be able to inhibit all machine motion by
removing power to the machine I/O devices when the relay is de-energized.
Second, if you are using a dc power supply, interrupt the load side rather than
the ac line power. This avoids the additional delay of power supply turn-on and
turn-off. The dc power supply should be powered directly from the fused
secondary of the transformer. Power to the dc input and output circuits is
connected through a set of master control relay contacts.
Periodic Tests of Master Control Relay Circuit
Any part can fail, including the switches in a master control relay circuit. The
failure of one of these switches would most likely cause an open circuit, which
would be a safe power-off failure. However, if one of these switches shorts

System Installation Recommendations
73
out, it no longer provides any safety protection. These switches should be
tested periodically to assure they will stop machine motion when needed.
Preventive Maintenance
The printed circuit boards of the controller must be protected from dirt, oil,
moisture and other airborne contaminants. To protect these boards, the
controller must be installed in an enclosure suitable for the environment. The
interior of the enclosure should be kept clean and the enclosure door should
be kept closed whenever possible.
Regularly inspect your terminal connections for tightness. Loose connections
may cause improper functioning of the controller or damage the components
of the system.
ATTENTION
To ensure personal safety and to guard against damaging
equipment, inspect connections with incoming power off.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) provides recommendations
for electrical equipment maintenance. Refer to article 70B of the NFPA for
general requirements regarding safety related work practices.

Keyswitch for the
SLC 5/03, SLC 5/04, and
SLC 5/05 Processors
95
The SLC 5/03, SLC 5/04, and SLC 5/05 processors include a 3-position
keyswitch on the front panel that lets you select one of three modes of
operation: RUN, PROGram, and REMote. You can remove the key in each of
the three positions.
ATTENTION
IMPORTANT
Depending on the size of your user program, the processor can
take up to 2.5 s to change modes when you change the position
of the keyswitch from RUN to PROG or to REM. Do not use the
keyswitch in place of a hardwired master control relay or an
emergency-stop switch.
The SLC 5/01 and SLC 5/02 processors do not have a keyswitch.
Therefore, all modes must be changed via the communication
channels.
RUN Position
This position places the processor in the Run mode. The processor
scans/executes the ladder program, monitors input devices, energizes
output devices, and acts on enabled I/O forces. You can only change
the processor mode by changing the keyswitch position. You cannot
perform online program editing.
To change the processor mode to Run, toggle the keyswitch from
PROG or REM to RUN. When the keyswitch is left in the RUN
position, you cannot use a programmer/operator interface device to
change the processor mode.
PROG Position
This position places the processor in the Program mode. The
processor does not scan/execute the ladder program, and the
controller outputs are de-energized. You can perform online program
editing. You can only change the processor mode by changing the
keyswitch position.
To change the processor mode to Program, toggle the keyswitch from
REM or RUN to PROG. When the keyswitch is left in the PROG
position, you cannot use a programmer/operator interface device to
change the processor mode.

REM Position
This position places the processor in the Remote mode: either the
REMote Run, REMote Program, or REMote Test mode. You can change
the processor mode by changing the keyswitch position or by
changing the mode from a programmer/operator interface device. You
can perform online program editing in this position.
To change the processor mode to REM, toggle the keyswitch from
RUN or PROG to REM. When the keyswitch is in the REM position,
you can use a programmer/operator interface device to change the
processor mode.

Installing Your Processor
101
The processor always occupies the first slot of the first chassis. You
can only install one processor per system.
ATTENTION
Never install, remove, or wire any module while power is
applied. Also, do not expose processor modules to surfaces or
other areas that may typically hold an electrostatic charge.
Electrostatic discharge can damage integrated circuits or
semiconductors if you touch backplane connector pins. Follow
these guidelines when you handle the power supplies.
•
•
•
•
•
IMPORTANT
IMPORTANT
Touch a grounded object to discharge static potential.
Do not touch the backplane connector or connector pins.
Do not touch circuit components inside the power supply.
Use a static-safe work station if available.
Keep the power supplies in their static-shield packaging
when not in use.
If the equipment is not installed and used as described in this
manual, the protection provided by the equipment may be
impaired.
If your processor has a battery — the battery is an option for
the SLC 5/01 (1747-L511) processor — make sure it is
connected before installing your processor into the chassis.
This provides memory backup for your processor should the
controller power supply fail.

Installing Your Hardware Components
Install Your Memory
Module
103
Always turn off power to the controller before removing the processor
or inserting or removing the memory module. This guards against
possible damage to the module and also undesired processor faults.
Memory modules are mounted in carriers or have connectors that are
keyed to guard against improper installation.
ATTENTION
To avoid potential damage to the memory modules, handle
them by the ends of the carrier or edges of the plastic housing.
Skin oil and dirt can corrode metallic surfaces, inhibiting
electrical contact. Also, do not expose memory modules to
surfaces or areas that may typically hold an electrostatic
charge. Electrostatic charges can alter or destroy memory.
1. If the processor module is installed in the chassis, remove the
module by pressing the retainer clips at both the top and bottom
of the module and sliding it out.
2. Locate the socket (or connector if you have an SLC 5/03,
SLC 5/04, or SLC 5/05 processor) on the processor board. Then
place the memory module into the socket or onto the connector
and press firmly in place.

Interconnect Cable
Three cables are available to link modular hardware chassis. Catalog
number 1746-C7 cable is 152.4 mm (6 in.) in length and is used when
connecting chassis side-by-side. Catalog number 1746-C9 is
914.4 mm (36 in.) in length and 1746-C16 is 1.27 m (50 in.) in length
and are used to link one chassis below the other.
IMPORTANT
1746-C9 and 1746-C16 cables have a rigid, unbendable shrink
wrap applied at the end of each connector, which provides
strain relief. When using these cables, provide at least 101.6
mm (4 in.) of clearance at the side of the chassis to allow for
proper bend radius of the cable.
.
ATTENTION
Do not use any cables other than those provided. Longer cables
could affect the integrity of data communication between the
chassis, possibly causing unsafe operation. Also, make sure the
cable is properly secured to protect against the effects of shock
and vibration.
In multiple chassis configurations, install the chassis interconnect
cable before installing the power supply.
The cables are keyed for proper installation. The end of the cable that
plugs into the right socket in the chassis has the key on the top of the
connector. The opposite end of the cable has the key on the inside of
the connector for insertion into the expansion chassis.

Sinking and sourcing are terms used to describe a current signal flow
relationship between field input and output devices in a control
system and their power supply.
• Field devices connected to the positive side (+V) of the field
power supply are sourcing field devices.
• Field devices connected to the negative side (dc Common) of
the field power supply are called sinking field devices.
To maintain electrical compatibility between field devices and the
programmable controller system, this definition is extended to the
input/output circuits on the discrete I/O modules.
• Sourcing I/O circuits supply (source) current to sinking field
devices.
• Sinking I/O circuits receive (sink) current from sourcing field
devices.
Europe: dc sinking input and sourcing output module circuits are the
commonly used options.

Wiring Your I/O Modules
Contact Output Circuits — ac or dc
Relays can be used for either ac or dc output circuits and
accommodate either sinking or sourcing field devices. These
capabilities are a result of the output switch being a mechanical
contact closure, not sensitive to current flow direction and capable of
accommodating a broad range of voltages.
This high degree of application flexibility makes contact output
modules very popular and useful in control environments with a
broad mix of electrical I/O circuit requirements.
Solid-State dc I/O Circuits
The design of dc field devices typically requires that they be used in a
specific sinking or sourcing circuit depending on the internal circuitry
of the device. DC input and output field circuits are commonly used
with field devices that have some form of internal solid state circuitry
that need a dc signal voltage to function.
Sourcing Device with Sinking Input Module Circuit
The field device is on the positive side of the power supply between
the supply and the input terminal. When the field device is activated,
it sources current to the input circuit.

Wiring Your I/O Modules
Preparing Your Wiring
Layout
Careful wire routing within the enclosure helps to cut down electrical
noise between I/O lines. Follow these rules for routing your wires.
• Route incoming power to the controller by a separate path from
wiring to I/O devices. Where paths must cross, their intersection
should be perpendicular.
IMPORTANT
Do not run signal or communication wiring and power
wiring in the same conduit.
• If wiring ducts are used, allow for at least 50.8 mm (2 in.)
between I/O wiring ducts and the controller. If the terminal
strips are used for I/O wiring, allow for at least two inches
between the terminal strips and the controller.
• Limit the cable length for the TTL input module to 15.24 m
(50 ft) per point and 3.05 m (10 ft) per point for the TTL output
module. Use low power dc I/O wiring even though it is less
tolerant to electrical noise.
ATTENTION
Handle the TTL module by its ends, not metallic
surfaces. Electrostatic discharges can damage the
module. Do not expose the TTL module to electrostatic
charges.
• Segregate I/O wiring by signal type. Bundle wiring with similar
electrical characteristics together.
Wires with different signal characteristics should be routed into the
enclosure by separate paths. Refer to Allen-Bradley Programmable
Controller Grounding and Wiring Guidelines, publication 1770-4.1.
ATTENTION
If the controller is being installed within a potentially hazardous
environment (that is, Class I, Division 2), all wiring must comply
with the requirements stated in the National Electrical Code
501-4 (b).

Wiring Your I/O Modules
Recommendations for
Wiring I/O Devices
115
The following are general recommendations for wiring I/O devices.
ATTENTION
Before you install and wire I/O devices, disconnect power from
the controller and any other source to the I/O devices.
• Use acceptable wire gauge. The I/O wiring terminals are
designed to accept two wires per terminal (maximum) of the
following size wire:
•
•
•
•
•
– Europe: 2 mm2 cross section or smaller
– United States: 14 AWG or smaller stranded wires
See diagram on page 116 for maximum torque values for wiring
terminal screws and terminal block screws.
Label wiring to I/O devices, power sources, and ground. Use
tape, shrink-tubing, or other dependable means for labeling
purposes. In addition to labeling, use colored insulation to
identify wiring based on signal characteristics. For example, you
may use blue for dc I/O wiring and red for ac I/O wiring.
Route the wires down and away from the module, securing
them with the cable tie.
Bundle wiring for each similar I/O device together. If you use
ducts, allow at least 5 cm (2 in.) between the ducts and the
controller so there is sufficient room to wire the devices.
Terminal cover plates have a write-on area for each terminal.
Use this area to identify your I/O devices. Label the removable
terminal block if you have not already.
ATTENTION
Calculate the maximum possible current in each power and
common wire. Observe all local electrical codes dictating the
maximum current allowable for each wire size. Current above
the maximum ratings may cause wiring to overheat, which can
cause damage.
Capacitors on input modules have a stored charge that can
cause a non-lethal shock. Avoid mounting the controller in a
position where installation or service personnel would be in
danger from startle reaction.

Chapter
8
Starting Up Your Control System
This chapter describes how to start up your control system. To
accomplish this, you must go through eight procedures.
Procedures for Starting the
Control System
Start-up involves the following procedures to be carried out in this
sequence.
1. Inspect your installation.
2. Disconnect motion-causing devices.
3. Initialize and test your processor.
4. Test your inputs.
5. Test your outputs.
6. Enter and test your program.
7. Observe control motion.
8. Conduct a dry run of your application.
These procedures isolate problems such as wiring mistakes,
equipment malfunction, and programming errors in a systematic,
controlled manner.
Go through these procedures very carefully to avoid possible personal
injury and equipment damage.
IMPORTANT
Do not attempt system start-up until you are thoroughly
familiar with the controller components and
programming/editing techniques. You must also be thoroughly
familiar with the particular application.
For general recommendation concerning installation safety
requirements and safety requirements and safety related work
practices, refer to the requirements specific to your region.
• Europe: Reference the standards found in EN 60204 and your
national regulations.

122
Starting Up Your Control System
• United States: refer to NFPA 70E, Electrical Safety Requirements for
Employee Workplaces.
1. Inspect Your Installation
You can often prevent serious problems in later test procedures by
first making a thorough physical inspection. We recommend that you
perform the following procedure.
1. Make sure that the controller and all other devices in the system
are securely mounted.
2. Check all wiring including:
• connections from the main disconnect to the controller input.
• the master control relay/emergency-stop circuit.
• input device circuits.
• output device circuits.
Make certain that all wiring connections are correct and that
there are no missing wires. Check the tightness of all terminals
to make certain wires are secure.
3. Measure the incoming line voltage. Be certain that it
corresponds to controller requirements and that it falls within
the specified voltage range. See specifications for input voltage
ranges on page 176.
2. Disconnect
Motion-Causing Device
In the following test procedures, the controller is energized. As a
safety precaution, you must make certain that machine motion does
not occur. The preferred way is to disconnect the motor wires at the
motor starter or the motor itself. In this way, you can test the
operation of the starter coil, verifying that your output circuit is wired
correctly and functioning. Similarly, the preferred way to disconnect a
solenoid is to disengage the valve, leaving the coil connected.
In some instances, you may not be able to disconnect a device the
preferred way. In this case, it is necessary to open the output circuit at
some convenient point.
For circuit testing purposes, it is best to open the circuit at a point as
close as possible to the motion-causing device. For example, your
output might be a relay coil that in turn energizes a motor starter; if it
is impractical to disconnect the motor wires, the next best thing to do

is to open the circuit at a point between the motor starter and the
relay contact.
ATTENTION
3. Initialize and Test Your
Processor
Machine motion during system checkout can be hazardous to
personnel. During the checkout procedures 3, 4, 5, and 6, you
must disconnect all devices that, when energized, might cause
machine motion.
When you are certain that machine motion cannot occur with the
controller energized, you may begin by initializing the processor using
the following steps.
1. Energize the chassis power supply. If power is supplied to the
controller and the installation is correct, the initial factory
conditions for all processors are provided in the following table.

ATTENTION
These steps are covered more extensively in your
programming software and Hand-held Terminal user
manuals. Reference these manuals if you have a
problem completing one of the steps.
2. Turn on the programming device.
3. Configure the controller.
4. Name the program. (Becomes the processor name when
downloaded.)
5. Program a sample test rung not affecting machine operation.
6. Save the program and controller configuration.
7. Transfer the controller configuration and sample test program to
the processor. After the new program is transferred to the
processor, the CPU FAULT status indicator should clear. The CPU
FAULT (or FLT on the SLC 5/03, SLC 5/04, and SLC 5/05
processor) status indicator stops if it was flashing.
8. Enter the Run mode.
The processor RUN status indicator should turn on, indicating
that the controller is in the Run mode with no CPU faults. If any
other CPU status exists, refer to chapter 10 for recommended action.
9. Monitor and exercise simple test rung.
If a simple test rung operates successfully without CPU faults,
you may assume basic processor functions are properly functioning. If
any other processor status exists, refer to chapter 10 for recommended
action.

4. Test Your Inputs
125
After successful processor initialization and test, follow this procedure
to test your inputs.
1. Assuming you are still online with the programming device, put
the controller into the Continuous Scan Test mode. This lets the
processor scan the I/O and program, but not turn on any
physical outputs.
2. Monitor the data in data File 1, the input data file. All configured
Inputs should be displayed.
3. Make sure the first input slot, whatever slot number that may be,
is shown on the monitor.
4. Select the first input device connected to the first input terminal
on the input module in the I/O chassis.
5. Manually close and open the addressed input device.
ATTENTION
Never reach into a machine to actuate a device,
unexpected machine operation could occur.
6. Observe the associated bit status using the programming device
monitor function. Also, observe input status indicator.
a. When the input device is closed and the signal power is at the
input terminal, the associated status bit is set to a one, and the
input status indicator should turn on.
b. When the input device is opened and signal power does not
exist at the input terminal, the associated status bit is set to a
0, and the input status indicator should go off.
7. If associated bit status and input status indicator match input
device status, select the next input device and repeat steps 5 and
6 until all inputs in the SLC 500 chassis have been tested.
If associated bit status and input status indicator does not match the
input device status, follow the recommended troubleshooting steps in
the Input Troubleshooting Steps section.

126
Starting Up Your Control System
Input Troubleshooting Steps
1. Make sure the processor is in the Continuous Scan Test mode.
2. If associated bit status and status indicator status do not match
the input device status, check status file S:11 and S:12 I/O slot
enables. Bits S:11/0 through S:11/15 and S:12/0 through S:12/14
should all be 1, enabling all I/O slots for the modular system.
3. Verify proper control power to the input device.
4. Remove the input device power and make sure circuit
terminations are properly wired and tightened.
5. Re-energize the input device power, and check for proper
control voltage between the input terminal and signal common
terminal.
6. If proper input control voltage does not exist, first check
minimum signal common by verifying voltage between input
device power source and the input common terminal.
7. If proper input voltage does exist, first check the minimum input
current specification on the input module, and then measure the
current in the input circuit. Replace the input module if
necessary.
8. If the input modules are OK, and proper voltage is measured
between input device source and input module common
terminal, test the input device and replace if necessary.
For more information on input troubleshooting see page 164.
5. Test Your Outputs
After you test all inputs, and have determined that they are
functioning properly, test the outputs.
1. Refer to page 122 to insure no motion will occur when any controller
output is energized.
2. Place the controller in the Program mode.

127
3. Create an output test rung as shown below for each output
module configured.
MOV
SOURCE B3:"XX"
DEST O0:"XX"."Y"
Let XX represent slot number of the output currently selected. Y
represents output word identifier. This rung moves a word of
data from the bit file to the output file.
4. Save the output test program and current controller
configuration.
5. Transfer the output test program to the processor.
6. Put the controller in the Run mode.
7. Monitor the data in data file B3 on the programming device
display.
8. Enter B3: XX at address prompt to select the output to be tested.
XX represents the output slot number.
9. Enter 1 at data prompt for the address that corresponds to the bit
in the output word.
10. Observe the output status indicator and the output device.
The output status indicator should turn on. The output device
should be energized (unless you disconnected it to prevent
machine motion).
11. Reset the data value back to zero for the selected address and
both the output status indicator and output device should
de-energize.
12. If the status indicator and the output device correspond to data
settings in steps 10 and 11, repeat steps 8 through 11 for each
output.
If the status indicators and output device states do not
correspond to the data settings in steps 9 and 11, follow the
recommended steps in the Output Troubleshooting Steps section.

Starting Up Your Control System
Output Troubleshooting Steps
1. Make sure the processor is in the Run mode.
2. Verify proper addressing of the output test rung from the
previous page.
3. Using a programming device, locate the output data file and bit
data file. See if the status of the associated bits between these
files match.
4. If the status of the bits match in step 3, and if the status of the
output status indicator match the status of the bits, but the status
of the output device is different, continue to step 5.
If the output status indicator does not match associated bit
status, check status file S:11 and S:12 I/O slot enables. Bits
S:11/0 through S:11/15 and S:12/0 through S:12/14 should all be
1 enabling all I/O slots for the modular system.
If the output slot enable was verified, try exchanging the output
module under test with identical hardware and retest. If the new
hardware works properly, replace the original.
5. Verify proper output voltage at the output terminal and then at
the output device.
6. De-energize the output circuit and check all output circuit
terminations and wire routes.
7. If proper output voltage does not exist at the output device and
the power source is adequate to drive the output device, test the
output device and replace it if necessary.
For more information on output troubleshooting, see page 165.

7. Observe Control Motion
131
Now that program execution has been verified, checkout of control
motion can begin. All persons involved with the programming,
installation, layout design, machine or process design and
maintenance should be involved in making decisions for determining
the best and safest way to test the total system.
The following procedures are general in nature. Individual conditions
may warrant their modification. The basic approach is to initiate
testing with the least amount of machine motion. Only some outputs
are allowed to generate machine motion. Then additional machine
motion can be gradually added, thereby allowing any problems to be
detected more easily under controlled conditions. The following
procedure provides the steps for testing machine motion using one
output at a time.
ATTENTION
During all phases of checkout, station a person ready to operate
an emergency-stop switch if necessary. The emergency-stop
switch will de-energize the master control relay and remove
power from the machine. This circuit must be hardwired only, it
must not be programmed.
Use this procedure to observe control motion.
1. Identify the first output device to be tested and reconnect its
wiring.
ATTENTION
Contact with ac line potential may cause injury to
personnel. When reconnecting wiring, make sure that the
ac power disconnect switch is opened.
2. Place the controller in the Run mode and observe the behavior
of the output device. To do this, simulate the input conditions
necessary to energize the output in the program. If it is not
practical to manually activate an input device, use the force
function to simulate the proper input condition.
ATTENTION
Never reach into a machine to actuate a device,
unexpected machine operation could occur.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2, testing each output device, one at a time.

Starting Up Your Control System
8. Conduct a Dry Run
ATTENTION
During all phases of checkout, station a person ready to
operate an emergency-stop switch if necessary. The
emergency-stop switch will de-energize the master control
relay and remove power from the machine. This circuit must be
hardwired only, it must not be programmed.
After thoroughly checking out the controller system and program,
proceed with a dry run of the application with all of the output
devices enabled. This dry run will vary with the application. A
machine tool dry run would test the program with all outputs enabled
but without tooling an actual part.
After you check out the entire system, and your dry run has been
completed satisfactorily, we recommend that you load your program
into an EEPROM memory module for back-up program storage. Refer
to your programming software’s online help for directions on loading
the EEPROM from RAM.
This step completes start-up procedures. Your SLC programmable
controller is now ready for operation.

without restriction. Regulations governing shipment to or within other
countries may differ.
Three or more batteries - Procedures for the transportation of three or
more batteries shipped together within the United States are specified
by the Department of Transportation (DOT) in the Code of Federal
Regulations, CFR49, “Transportation.” An exemption to these
regulations, DOT - E7052, covers the transport of certain hazardous
materials classified as flammable solids. This exemption authorizes
transport of lithium batteries by motor vehicle, rail freight, cargo
vessel, and cargo-only aircraft, providing certain conditions are met.
Transport by passenger aircraft is not permitted.
A special provision of DOT-E7052 (11th Rev., October 21, 1982, par.
8-a) provides that:
“Persons that receive cell and batteries covered by this
exemption may reship them pursuant to the provisions of 49
CFR 173.22a in any of these packages authorized in this
exemption including those in which they were received.”
The Code of Federal Regulations, 49 CFR 173.22a, relates to the use of
packaging authorized under exemptions. In part, it requires that you
must maintain a copy of the exemption at each facility where the
packaging is being used in connection with shipment under the
exemption.
Shipment of depleted batteries for disposal may be subject to specific
regulation of the countries involved or to regulations endorsed by
those countries, such as the IATA Restricted Articles Regulations of the
International Air Transport Association, Geneva, Switzerland.

Troubleshooting
Tips for Troubleshooting
Your Control System
When troubleshooting, pay careful attention to these general
warnings.
ATTENTION
Have all personnel remain clear of the controller and equipment
when power is applied. The problem may be intermittent and
sudden unexpected machine motion could result in injury. Have
someone ready to operate an emergency-stop switch in case it
becomes necessary to shut off power to the controller
equipment. Also, see NFPA 70E Part II for additional guidelines
for safety-related work practices.
Never reach into a machine to actuate a switch since
unexpected machine motion can occur and cause injury.
Remove all electrical power at the main power disconnect
switches before checking electrical connections or
inputs/outputs causing machine motion.
The first step in the troubleshooting procedure is to identify the
problem and its source.
Locate the majority of faults by observing the diagnostic indicators on
the front of the power supply, processor unit, and I/O modules. These
indicators, along with error codes identified in the programming
device user manual and software, help trace the source of the fault to
the user’s input/output devices, wiring, or the controller. Faults which
do not clear by either toggling the keyswitch from Program to Run or
cycling power, cannot be diagnosed or corrected without
programming software.
A flashing fault status indicator may indicate the user program in the
processor is corrupted and a copy of the program will be needed
before contacting your local Allen-Bradley sales office or distributor
for assistance.
Removing Power
Before working on a SLC 500 modular system, always remove the
power supply input power at the main power disconnect switch.
The power status indicator on the power supply indicates that dc
power is being supplied to the chassis. The status indicator could be
off when incoming power is present.

Replacing Fuses
ATTENTION
When replacing a fuse, be sure to remove all power from the
system. Replacing a blown fuse can rarely restore power supply
operation, requiring the power supply to be replaced.
Program Alteration
There are several causes of alteration to the user program, including
extreme environmental conditions, Electromagnetic Interference
(EMI), improper grounding, improper wiring connections, and
unauthorized tampering. If you suspect the memory has been altered,
check the program against a previously saved program on an
EEPROM, UVPROM or Flash EPROM module.
Troubleshooting the
SLC 5/01 and SLC 5/02
Processors
Follow these steps to receive the maximum benefit of this
troubleshooting section.
1. Identify the status of your processor status indicators. See
chapter 5 for a description of status indicators and their states.
2. Using the tables on the following pages, match your processor
and power supply status indicators with the status indicators in
the first column.
3. Once the status indicators are matched to the appropriate table,
move across the table identifying error description and probable
causes.
4. Follow the recommended action steps for each probable cause
until the error is corrected.
5. If recommended actions do not correct the error, contact your
local Rockwell Automation sales office or distributor.

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting the
SLC 5/03, SLC 5/04, and
SLC 5/05 Processors
149
Between the time you apply power to an SLC 5/03, SLC 5/04, or
SLC 5/05 processor and the communication are established via a
connected programming device, the only form of communication
between you and the processor is through the status indicator display.
When power is applied, all of the status indicators flash on and then
off while the processor conducts hardware tests. This is part of the
normal powerup sequence. Following the selftest by the processor, all
the status indicators again flash on momentarily. If a user program is
in a running state, the RUN status indicator will be on. If a fault exists
within the processor, the FLT status indicator is on.
Follow these steps to receive the maximum benefit of this
troubleshooting section.
1. Identify the status of your processor status indicators. See
chapter 5 for description of status indicators and their different states.
2. Using the tables on the following pages, match your processor
and power supply status indicators with the status indicators in
the first column.
3. Once the status indicators are matched to the appropriate table,
move across the table identifying error description and probable
causes.
4. Then follow the recommended action steps for each probable
cause until the cause is identified.
5. If recommended actions do not identify the trouble cause,
contact your local Rockwell Automation sales office or
distributor.
Clearing SLC 5/03, SLC 5/04, and SLC 5/05 Processor Faults Using
the Keyswitch
Toggle the keyswitch from RUN to PROG and then back to RUN; this
will clear some faults. If the keyswitch is left in the RUN position, the
processor mode cannot be changed from a programmer/operator
interface device. If you return the keyswitch to the REM position, you

1. An input filter removes false signals due to contact bounce or
electrical interference.
2. Opto-electrical isolation protects the input circuit and backplane
circuits by isolating logic circuits from input signals.
3. Logic circuits process the signal.
4. An input status indicator turns on or off indicating the status of
the corresponding input device.

DH-485 Network
Description
The DH-485 network passes information between devices on the
plant floor. The network monitors process parameters, device
parameters, device status, process status and application programs to
support data acquisition, data monitoring, program upload/download
and supervisory control.
The DH-485 network offers:
•
•
•
•
interconnection of 32 devices.
multi-master capability.
token passing access control.
the ability to add or remove nodes without disrupting the
network.
• maximum network length of 1219 m (4000 ft).(1)
The following section describes the protocol used to control message
transfers on the DH-485 network. The protocol supports two classes
of devices: initiators and responders. All initiators on the network get
(1)
181
The network can be extended to 2438 m (8000 ft) by connecting two AIC+ Advanced Interface Converters
(1761-NET-AIC). Refer to the AIC+ Advanced Interface Converter User Manual, publication 1761-UM004.

Setting Up the DH-485 Network
a chance to initiate message transfers. To determine which initiator
has the right to transmit, a token passing algorithm is used.
DH-485 Network Protocol
A node holding the token can send any valid packet onto the
network. Each node is allowed only one transmission (plus two
retries) each time it receives the token. After a node sends one
message packet, it attempts to give the token to its successor by
sending a token pass packet to its successor.
DH-485 Token Rotation
If no network activity occurs, the initiator sends the token pass packet
again. After two retries (a total of three tries) the initiator will attempt
to find a new successor.
IMPORTANT
The maximum address that the initiator will search for before
wrapping to zero is the value in the configurable parameter
maximum node address. The default value for this parameter is
31 for all initiators and responders.
The allowable range of the node address of a initiator is 0...31. The
allowable address range for all responders is 1...31. There must be at
least one initiator on the network.
DH-485 Network
Initialization
Network initialization begins when a period of inactivity exceeding
the time of a link dead timeout is detected by a initiator on the
network. When the time for a link dead timeout is exceeded, usually
the initiator with the lowest address claims the token. When a initiator
has the token it will begin to build the network. The network requires
at least one initiator to initialize it.
Building a network begins when the initiator that claimed the token
tries to pass the token to the successor node. If the attempt to pass the
token fails, or if the initiator has no established successor (for
example, when it turns on), it begins a linear search for a successor
starting with the node above it in the addressing.
When the initiator finds another active initiator, it passes the token to
that node, which repeats the process until the token is passed all the
way around the network to the first node. At this point, the network is
in a state of normal operation.

Setting Up the DH-485 Network
Important Planning
Considerations
189
Carefully plan your network configuration before installing any
hardware. Listed below are some of the factors that can affect system
performance:
• Amount of electrical noise, temperature, and humidity in the
network environment
• Number of devices on the network
• Connection and grounding quality in installation
• Amount of communication traffic on the network
• Type of process being controlled
• Network configuration
The major hardware and software issues you need to resolve before
installing a network are discussed in the following sections.
Hardware Considerations
You need to decide the length of the communication cable, where
you will route it, and how to protect it from the environment where it
will be installed.
When the communication cable is installed, you need to know how
many devices are to be connected during installation and how many
devices will be added in the future. The following sections will help
you understand and plan the network.
Number of Devices and Length of Communication Cable
You must install a 1747-AIC link coupler for each node on the
network. If you plan to add nodes later, provide additional link
couplers during the initial installation to avoid recabling after the
network is in operation.
The maximum length of the communication cable is 1219 m (4000 ft).
This is the total cable distance from the first node to the last node on
the network.

Setting Up the DH-485 Network
Planning Cable Routes
Follow these guidelines to help protect the communication cable from
electrical interference.
• Keep the communication cable at least 1.52 m (5 ft) from any
electric motors, transformers, rectifiers, generators, arc welders,
induction furnaces, or sources of microwave radiation.
• If you must run the cable across power feed lines, run the cable
at right angles to the lines.
• If you do not run the cable through a contiguous metallic
wireway or conduit, keep the communication cable at least
0.15 m (6 in.) from ac power lines of less than 20 A, 0.30 m (1 ft)
from lines greater than 20 A, but only up to 100 k VA, and
0.60 m (2 ft) from lines of 100 k VA or more.
• If you run the cable through a contiguous metallic wireway or
conduit, keep the communication cable at least 0.08 m (3 in.)
from ac power lines of less than 20 A, 0.15 m (6 in.) from lines
greater than 20 A, but only up to 100 k VA, and 0.30 m (1 ft)
from lines of 100 k VA or more.
Running the communication cable through conduit provides
extra protection from physical damage and electrical
interference. If you route the cable through conduit, follow
these additional recommendations:
– Use ferromagnetic conduit near critical sources of electrical
interference. You can use aluminum conduit in non-critical
areas.
– Use plastic connectors to couple between aluminum and
ferromagnetic conduit. Make an electrical connection around
the plastic connector (use pipe clamps and the heavy gauge
wire or wire braid) to hold both sections at the same
potential.
– Ground the entire length of conduit by attaching it to the
building earth ground.
– Do not let the conduit touch the plug on the cable.
– Arrange the cables loosely within the conduit. The conduit
should contain only serial communication cables.
– Install the conduit so that it meets all applicable codes and
environmental specifications.
For more information on planning cable routes, see Industrial
Automation Wiring and Grounding Guidelines, publication 1770-4.1.

Software Considerations
Software considerations include the configuration of the network and
the parameters that can be set to the specific requirements of the
network. The following are major configuration factors that have a
significant effect on network performance.
•
•
•
•
•
Number of nodes on the network
Addresses of those nodes
Communication rate
Maximum node address selection
SLC 5/03, SLC 5/04, and SLC 5/05 processors only - token
hold factor
• Maximum number of communicating devices
The following sections explain network considerations and describe
ways to select parameters for optimum network performance (speed).
Number of Nodes
The number of nodes on the network directly affects the data transfer
time between nodes. Unnecessary nodes (such as a second
programming terminal that is not being used) slow the data transfer
rate. The maximum number of nodes on the network is 32.
Setting Node Addresses
The best network performance occurs when node addresses start at 0
and are assigned in sequential order. SLC 500 processors default to
node address 1. The node address is stored in the processor status file
(S:15L). Processors cannot be node 0. Also, initiators such as personal
computers should be assigned the lowest numbered addresses to
minimize the time required to initialize the network.
Setting Processor Communication Rate
The best network performance occurs at the highest communication
rate. All devices must be at the same communication rate. The
communication rate is stored in the processor status file (S:15H).

192
Setting Up the DH-485 Network
Maximum Node Address Setting
The maximum node address parameter should be set as low as
possible. This minimizes the amount of time used in soliciting
successors when initializing the network. If all nodes are addressed in
sequence from 0, and the maximum node address is equal to the
address of the highest addressed node, the token rotation will
improve by the amount of time required to transmit a solicit successor
packet plus the slot timeout value.
Note that this does not allow any node to be added to the network
without affecting the response time. On the other hand, since the time
required to hold an open station address is greater than the time
required to pass a token, it can be useful to leave a temporary device
(such as a personal computer) connected if there is only one such
device. (A solicit successor packet requires the same transmission time
as the token pass, but there is an added slot timeout period.)
See your programming software user manual for the procedures to set
node addresses, processor communication rate, and maximum node
addresses.
IMPORTANT
The SLC 500 series A (only) processors set the maximum node
address to 31 when power is cycled increasing initialization and
response time of the network.
Maximum Number of Communicating Devices
SLC 500 fixed and SLC 5/01 processors can be selected by two
initiators maximum at the same time. Using more than two initiators to
select the same SLC 500 fixed and SLC 5/01 processors at the same
time can cause communication timeouts.

DH-485 Communication Cable and Isolated Link Coupler
The link coupler provides a connection for each node. The isolated
link coupler electrically isolates the DH-485 communication interface
from the processor and peripheral connections. Electrical-optical
isolation is provided to 1500V.
The suggested DH-485 communication cable is Belden #3106A or
#9842 cable. The cable is jacketed and shielded with two twisted wire
pairs and a drain wire.
One pair provides a balanced signal line, and one wire of the other
pair is used for a common reference line between all nodes on the
network. The shield reduces the effect of electrostatic noise from the
industrial environment on the network communication.
Installing the DH-485 Communication Cable
The communication cable consists of a number of cable segments
daisy-chained together. The total length of the cable segments cannot
exceed 1219 m (4000 ft).
When cutting cable segments, make them long enough to route them
from one link coupler to the next with sufficient slack to prevent

Setting Up the DH-485 Network
Grounding and Terminating the DH-485 Network
Only one of the link couplers at the end of the link must have
Terminals 1 and 2 of the network connector jumpered together. This
provides an earth ground connection for the shield of the
communication cable.
Link couplers at both ends of the network must have terminals 5 and
6 of the link connectors jumpered together. This connects the
termination impedance (of 120 Ω) that is built into each link coupler
as required by the DH-485 specification. See the figure below for the
proper jumpering.

Powering the Link Coupler
In normal operation with the programmable controller connected to
the link coupler, the processor powers both the link coupler and
peripheral device (DTAM, PIC) if connected through the 1747-C11
cable.
If you do not connect the processor to the link coupler, then use a
24V dc power supply to power the link coupler and peripheral
device. The 1747-AIC interface requires 85 mA at 24V dc. With a
peripheral device connected, the total current required is 190 mA at
24V dc.
If both the processor and external power are connected to the link
coupler, only the external source is used.
IMPORTANT
Always connect the CHS GND (chassis ground) terminal to the
nearest earth ground. This connection must be made whether or
not an external 24V dc supply is used.

Setting Up the DH-485 Network
197
Below are three options for externally powering the 1747-AIC
interface.
• If the link coupler is to be installed in an office environment,
you can use the 1747-NP1 wall mount power supply or
1747-NP2 global desktop power supply. The link coupler would
be powered through either the 1747-C10 cable or by hardwiring
from the supply to the screw terminals on the link coupler.
• If you use any of the following chassis power supplies (1746-P1,
1746-P2, 1746-P4, 1746-P5, and 1746-P6), you can use the 24V
dc user power supply (200 mA maximum) built into the power
supply. The link coupler would be powered through a
hard-wired connection from the screw terminals on the power
supply to the screw terminals on the bottom of the link coupler.
• You can use an external dc power supply with the following
specifications:
– operating voltage: 24V dc + 25%
– output current: 190 mA
– rated NEC
The link coupler would be powered through a hard-wired
connection from the external supply to the screw terminals on
the bottom of the link coupler.
ATTENTION
If you use an external power supply, it must be 24V dc.
Permanent damage will result if miswired with wrong power
source.
The figure below shows the external wiring connections and
specifications of the link coupler.

Installing and Attaching the Link Couplers
• When installing the link coupler in an enclosure, use care so that
the cable connecting the SLC 500 controller to the link coupler
does not hit the enclosure door.
• Carefully plug the terminal block into the DH-485 port on the
link coupler you are putting on the network. Allow enough
cable slack to prevent stress on the plug.
• Provide strain relief for the cable after it is wired to the terminal
block. This guards against breakage of the Belden cable wires.

RS-232 and SCADA
Applications
RS-232 is a communication interface included under SCADA
(Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) applications. SCADA is a
term that refers to control applications that require communication
over long distances. For more information about the use of
Allen-Bradley equipment in SCADA applications, refer to the SCADA
System Applications Guide, publication AG-UM008.
RS-232 Communication
Interface Overview
RS-232 is an Electronics Industries Association (EIA) standard that
specifies the electrical, mechanical, and functional characteristics for
serial binary communication.
One of the benefits of RS-232 communication is that it lets you
integrate telephone and radio modems into your control system. The
distance over which you are able to communicate with certain system
devices is virtually limitless.

The SLC and PLC products detailed in this appendix that communicate
over the RS-232 communication interface also use the DF1 serial
communication protocol. DF1 protocol delimits messages, controls
message flow, detects and signals errors, and retries after errors are
detected.
SLC 5/03, SLC 5/04, and SLC
5/05 processors and RS-232
Communication
The SLC 5/03, SLC 5/04, and SLC 5/05 processors can communicate by
means of the RS-232 communication port, channel 0. Channel 0 supports DF1
full-duplex protocol, DF1 half-duplex master and slave protocol, DH485
protocol, Modbus RTU Master communication, ASCII communication, and
DF1 radio modem protocol. Refer to your programming software user manual
for information on configuring the RS-232 communication port, channel 0.
The details of the DF1 protocols can be found in the DF1 Protocol and
Command Set Reference Manual, Publication Number 1770-6.5.16.
Channel 0 provides a minimum of 500V dc isolation between the I/O
signals and the logic ground of the SLC 5/03, SLC 5/04, and SLC 5/05
processors. The channel is a 9-pin D-shell. The table below provides a

SLC 500 Devices that
Support RS-232
Communication
203
The SLC 500 product line has two other modules, aside from the SLC 5/03,
SLC 5/04, and SLC 5/05 processors, that support the RS-232 communication
interface. They are the 1746-BAS BASIC module and the 1747-KE
DH-485/RS-232C interface. Both of these modules can be used with either
the SLC 5/01 or SLC 5/02 processor.
1747-KE Module
The 1747-KE module is a communication interface module that acts as a
bridge between DH-485 networks and devices requiring DF1 protocol. You
can configure the DF1 port on the 1747-KE module for RS-232/423, RS-422,
or RS-485 devices. Residing in an SLC 500 chassis, the 1747-KE module is
ideally used as an interface module, linking remote DH-485 networks via a
modem to a central host.
For more information on the 1747-KE module, see the DH-485/RS-232
Interface Module User Manual, publication 1747-IN006.
1746-BAS and 1746-BAS-T Modules
The 1746-BAS and 1746-BAS-T modules, which are programmed using the
BASIC language, have two configurable serial ports for interfacing to
computers, modems, serial printers, and other RS-232 compatible devices.
You can also use them for off-loading complex math routines from an SLC
500 processor, thereby conserving ladder logic memory.
For more information on the 1746-BAS module, see the SLC 500 BASIC and
BASIC-T Module User Manual, publication 1746-UM004.

RS-232 Communication Interface
DF1 Protocol and the SLC
5/03, SLC 5/04, and SLC 5/05
Processors
DF1 protocol combines data transparency (ANSI - American National
Standards Institute - specification subcategory D1) and 2-way
simultaneous transmission with embedded responses (F1). It is also a
peer-to-peer, link-layer protocol. This means that system devices have
equal access to messages being sent over the RS-232 communication
interface.
DF1 protocol provides two modes of communication: full-duplex and
half-duplex.
DF1 Full-duplex Protocol
DF1 full-duplex protocol (also referred to as DF1 point-to-point
protocol) lets you use RS-232 point-to-point communication in
applications that require it. This type of protocol supports
simultaneous transmissions between two devices in both directions.
You can use channel 0 as a programming port, or as a peer-to-peer
port using the MSG instruction.
In full-duplex mode, the SLC 5/03, SLC 5/04, and SLC 5/05 processors
can send and receive messages. When the SLC 5/03, SLC 5/04, and
SLC 5/05 processors receive messages, they act as an end device, or
final destination for the data packets(1). The processor ignores the destination
and source addresses received in the data packets. However, the processor
swaps these addresses in the reply that it transmits in response to any
command data packet that it has received.
By setting a parameter with your programming software, you can also
make the processor verify that the host computer can receive
embedded responses. To do this, the processor waits to receive an
embedded response from the host computer, before sending one of its
own. A host computer that can send embedded responses should also
be able to receive them.
If you use modems with DF1 full-duplex protocol, make sure that they
are capable of simultaneous bidirectional communication. Typically,
dial-up modems designed to be connected to standard telephone lines
can support full-duplex.
(1)
The exceptions to this are SLC 5/04 and SLC 5/05 processors that have the DH+ to DF1 or Ethernet to DF1
full-duplex passthru bit enabled. In the case of the SLC 5/04, the processor checks the destination address in
the packet and if it does not match the configured DH+ address of the processor, the packet is forwarded onto
the DH+ network to the destination address DH+ node. In the case of the SLC 5/05, the processor checks the
destination address in the packet. If the routing table exists and an IP address is in the routing table for that
DF1 address, the packet is forwarded out to the Ethernet network to that IP address.

DF1 Half-duplex Protocol
DF1 half-duplex protocol provides a multi-drop single master/multiple
slave network. In contrast to the DF1 full-duplex protocol,
communication takes place in one direction at a time. You can use
channel 0 as a programming port, or as a peer-to-peer port using the
MSG instruction.
In half-duplex mode, the SLC 5/03, SLC 5/04, and SLC 5/05 processors
can be either master or slave devices. As a master device, the
processor polls each slave on the network on a regular and sequential
basis. The master also supports routing of data packets from one slave
to another, or slave-to-slave communication. As a slave device, the
processor can send data packets when polled by the master device,
which initiates all communication with slave devices.
If the master device has no data to send, it can still receive data from
the slave device. To do this, the master sends out a poll packet
addressed to the slave. If the slave has data to send, it does so in
response to the poll packet. Otherwise, the slave sends a simple
two-byte response, so that the master knows that it is active.
Several Allen-Bradley products support half-duplex master protocol.
They include the Enhanced PLC-5 processors, and SLC 5/03, SLC 5/04,
and SLC 5/05 processors. RSLinx (2.0 or later) software also supports
half-duplex master protocol.
DF1 Half-duplex supports up to 255 slave devices (addresses 0...254)
with address 255 reserved for master broadcasts. The SLC 5/03,
SLC 5/04, and SLC 5/05 processor support broadcast reception. SLC
5/03, SLC 5/04, and SLC 5/05 processors with operating system FRN
C/6 can also initiate broadcast write commands via the MSG

Broadcast is not supported for read commands or any remote
messages. Broadcast is also not supported by the SLC 5/04
channel 1 DH+ network or the SLC 5/05 channel 1 Ethernet
network.
TIP
Either half-duplex or full-duplex modem types can be used for the
master, but half-duplex modems must be used for the slaves
(assuming there is more than one on a multi-drop network).

DF1 Radio Modem Channel 0 Driver
Series C FRN 6 (FRN C/6) and later versions of operating systems
OS302 (SLC 5/03 processor), OS401 (SLC 5/04 processor) and OS501
(SLC 5/05 processor) include a channel 0 system mode driver called
DF1 radio modem. This driver implements a protocol, optimized for
use with radio modem networks, that is a hybrid between DF1
full-duplex protocol and DF1 half-duplex protocol, and therefore is
not compatible with either of these protocols.
IMPORTANT
IMPORTANT
The DF1 radio modem driver should only be used among
devices that support and are configured for the DF1 radio
modem protocol. Only SLC 5/03, SLC 5/04 and SLC 5/05
processors with operating systems FRN C/6 support DF1 radio
modem protocol.
There are some radio modem network configurations that will
not work with the DF1 radio modem driver. (See DF1 Radio
Modem System Limitations on page 209.) In these
configurations, continue to use DF1 half-duplex protocol.
Like DF1 full-duplex protocol, DF1 radio modem allows any node to
initiate to any other node at any time (if the radio modem network
supports full-duplex data port buffering and radio transmission
collision avoidance). Like DF1 half-duplex protocol, a node ignores
any packets received that have a destination address other than its
own, with the exception of broadcast packets and passthru packets.
Unlike either DF1 full-duplex or DF1 half-duplex protocols, DF1 radio
modem protocol does not include ACKs, NAKs, ENQs, or poll
packets. Data integrity is ensured by the CRC checksum.
Using the DF1 Radio Modem
The DF1 radio modem driver can be configured as the system mode
driver for channel 0 using RSLogix 500 version 5.50 or later software.

RS-232 Communication Interface
Channel O Configuration
The Baud, Parity, Stop Bits and Error Detection selections are identical
to the other DF1 drivers. Valid Node Addresses are 0...254, just like the
DF1 half-duplex drivers.
The primary advantage of using DF1 radio modem protocol for radio
modem networks is in transmission efficiency. Each read/write
transaction (command and reply) requires only one transmission by
the initiator (to send the command) and one transmission by the
responder (to return the reply). This minimizes the number of times
the radios need to key-up to transmit, which maximizes radio life and
minimizes radio power consumption. In contrast, DF1 half-duplex
protocol requires five transmissions for the DF1 master to complete a
read/write transaction with a DF1 slave - three by the master and two
by the slave.
The DF1 radio modem driver can be used in a pseudo master/slave
mode with any radio modems, as long as the designated master node
is the only node initiating MSG instructions, and as long as only one
MSG instruction is triggered at a time.
For modern serial radio modems that support full-duplex data port
buffering and radio transmission collision avoidance, the DF1 radio
modem driver can be used to set up a masterless peer-to-peer radio
network, where any node can initiate communication to any other
node at any time, as long as all of the nodes are within radio range so
that they receive each other’s transmissions.

DF1 Radio Modem System Limitations
The following questions need to be answered in order to determine if
you can implement the new DF1 radio modem driver in your radio
modem network.
• Are all of the devices SLC 5/03, 5/04 or 5/05 processors?
If so, then they must all be at operating system FRN C/6 or later
in order to be configured with the DF1 radio modem driver
using RSLogix 500 version 5.50 or later software. If not, then
make sure that all of the nodes can support the DF1 radio
modem protocol. Once channel 0 is configured for DF1 radio
modem, you will need to use channel 1 to locally monitor and
program your SLC processor using RSLogix 500 software.
• Does each node receive the radio transmissions of every other
node, being both within radio transmission/reception range and
on a common receiving frequency (either via a Simplex radio
mode or via a single, common, full-duplex repeater)?
If so, then go to the next question to see if you can use the DF1
radio modem driver to set up a peer-to-peer radio network. If
not, then you may still be able to use the DF1 radio modem
driver, but only if you limit MSG instruction initiation to the
node connected to the master radio modem whose
transmissions can be received by every other radio modem in
the network.
• Do the radio modems handle full-duplex data port buffering and
radio transmission collision avoidance?
If so, and the answer to the previous question is yes as well,
then you can take full advantage of the peer-to-peer message
initiation capability in every node (for example, the ladder logic
in any node can trigger a MSG instruction to any other node at
any time). If not, then you may still be able to use the DF1 radio
modem driver, but only if you limit MSG instruction initiation to
a single master node whose transmission can be received by
every other node.
• Can I take advantage of the SLC 5/03, SLC 5/04, and 5/05
channel-to-channel passthru to remotely program the other SLC
nodes using RSLinx and RSLogix 500 running on a personal
computer connected to a local SLC processor via DH-485, DH+,
or Ethernet?
Yes, with certain limitations imposed based on the radio modem
network.

Modems Overview
You can connect the SLC 5/03, SLC 5/04, and SLC 5/05 processors to
several types of modems. In all cases, the processors act as Data Terminal
Equipment (DTE). DTE send and/or receive data on a network. Modem or
line drivers act as Data Communication Equipment (DCE), which provide the
signal conversion and coding required for communication between DTE and
data circuits. Other DCE include phone-line modems and specialized
modems, such as radio and satellite-link modems.
In addition to Common Return (COM), Receive Data (RXD), and Transmit
Data (TXD), the following active modem-control lines are provided on the
SLC 5/03, SLC 5/04, and SLC 5/05 processors.
RTS (Request to Send) - this output signal indicates to the modem or other
DCE that the DTE wants to transmit.
CTS (Clear to Send) - this input signal from the modem indicates the modem
is ready to receive the transmission by the DTE for forwarding over a link.
DSR (Data Set Ready) - this input signal indicates the DCE device is ready for
operation. Loss of this signal causes a modem-lost condition in the processor.
DTR (Data Terminal Ready) - this output signal from the DTE indicates that
it is ready for operation. You can also use this signal with the processor to
initiate DTR dialing in dial-up modems that support such a feature.

DCD (Data Carrier Detect) - this is an input signal from the DCE that
indicates a carrier signal is being received and that presumably data is to be
received for forwarding to the DTE connected.
Wiring Connectors for
RS-232 Communication
To connect Allen-Bradley devices with other devices over RS-232, you must
wire the cable connectors so that communication can occur through the
cabling, which provide the interface between devices.

a typical DH+network configuration.
Data Highway Plus implements peer-to-peer communication with a
token-passing scheme to rotate link mastership among a maximum of 64
nodes. Since this method does not require polling, it helps provide
time-efficient reliable data transport. The DH+features:
• remote programming of PLC-2, PLC-3, PLC-5 and SLC 500 processors
on your network.
• direct connections to PLC-5 processors and industrial programming
terminals.
• easy re-configuration and expansion if you want to add more nodes
later.
• a communication rate of 57.6 Kbaud, 115.2 Kbaud, or
230.4 Kbaud.
The following table summarizes the type of termination resistor needed to
communicate at the specified communication rate with the maximum cable
length.

SLC 5/04 Processors and
DH+ Communication
The SLC 5/04 processors let you operate DH+communication protocol by
means of the DH+communication channel 1. The SLC 5/04 processors also
support DF1 full-duplex protocol, DF1 half-duplex master and slave protocol,
ASCII, or DH-485 via its RS-232 port, channel 0. The 3-pin connector,
provided with the SLC 5/04 processors, is for actual DH+communication and
the 8-pin connector is for monitoring DH+communication.

The Allen-Bradley Remote I/O Network is a master/slave control network
that enables chassis of I/O, operator interface terminals, push-button panels,
I/O blocks, message displays, and drives to be great distances from the host
PLC processor. The SLC 500 fixed, SLC 5/01, SLC 5/02, SLC 5/03, SLC
5/04, or SLC 5/05 processors can interface to this network through the
1747-DCM module for distributed control. The DCM lets the SLC 500
processor look like another slave device on the network.

Each 1747-SN scanner supports 4 logical racks of 256 I/O each per logical
rack. If large amounts of data need to be transferred to a device such as a
PanelView operator interface, the 1747-SN series B scanner supports block
transfer of up to 64 words of data. Up to 16 devices can be connected to a
single remote I/O network. The SLC system supports multiple 1747-SN
scanners if more devices are required to be controlled by a single SLC
processor.
Remote I/O Passthru
Remote I/O passthru enables communication between a personal computer
on the same network as an SLC 5/03, 5/04, or 5/05 processor to devices on
the remote I/O network. For example, a personal computer running
PanelBuilder32 software and communicating on the DH+ network could
upload and download applications from a PanelView operator terminal
communicating on the remote I/O network. This feature eliminates the need
to physically connect the personal computer to the PanelView operator
terminal when you need to change the application. This capability is available
on the 1747-SN series B scanner, and the 1747-BSN backup scanner.

DeviceNet Network
233
The SLC 5/03 OS302 or later, SLC 5/04 OS401 or later, and SLC
5/05 processor support remote I/O passthru via both their
communication ports.
A DeviceNet network connects plant floor devices directly to the control
system (for example, SLC 500 controller) reducing the number of I/O
interfaces and wiring associated with a typical hard-wired solution. The
DeviceNet communication network is a completely open device network and
has the support of industry’s leading sensor, actuator, and control
manufacturers.
The 1747-SDN DeviceNet Scanner
In a typical configuration, the 1747-SDN DeviceNet Scanner acts as an
interface between DeviceNet devices and the SLC 5/02, SLC 5/03, SLC 5/04,
and SLC 5/05 processors. The scanner communicates with DeviceNet devices

The 1761-NET-DNI DeviceNet Interface
The DeviceNet Interface (DNI) is an intelligent DeviceNet-to-DF1 protocol
conversion device that let existing DF1 devices communicate on DeviceNet
network. The DF1 device is able to exchange I/O data with a master device
and is able to initiate and receive DF1 encapsulated DeviceNet messages
across a DeviceNet network.
The DNI provides a single DeviceNet connection point and a single RS-232
connection. The DeviceNet port is isolated from the DNI digital logic and
RS-232 port.
The primary functions of the DNI are:
• to collect and receive input data from the DF1 device connected on its
RS-232 port and forward that data to a connected master on a
DeviceNet network.
• to monitor output data received from the DeviceNet master and write
that data to the DF1 device.
• to let DF1 devices send and receive messages across the DeviceNet
network.
The DNI can be used to interconnect:

Control Networks
ControlNet Network
ControlNet systems are designed to:
• provide high-speed, repeatable, deterministic I/O transmission.
• let control and message information co-exist on the same physical
media.
• make sure that I/O data transfers are not affected by programming
terminal activity or interscanner message activity on the network.
The 1747-SCNR ControlNet Scanner Module
The 1747-SCNR scanner provides the capability for SLC processors to
produce or consume scheduled I/O to and from a ControlNet network.
Scheduled messaging lets the SLC processor program control I/O events in
real time over the ControlNet network. The module connects to a ControlNet
network via the standard BNC connectors.
The 1747-KFC15 ControlNet Messaging Module
The 1747-KFC15 module provides the capability for SLC 5/03 and later
processors to send or receive unscheduled ControlNet messages. With
unscheduled messages, the SLC processor program can send peer-to-peer
messages or be accessed and edited over the ControlNet network using
RSLogix 500 software.
The 1747-KFC15 module connects to the ControlNet network via the
standard BNC connectors and links to the SLC processor via a standard
RS-232 cable. Other programming interfaces can connect to the ControlNet
network through the 1747-KFC15 module’s network access port.

Connections to the Ethernet
Network
239
The SLC 5/05 Ethernet connector conforms to ISO/IEC 8802-3 STD
802.3 and utilizes 10/100Base-T media. Connections are made directly
from the SLC 5/05 to an Ethernet hub. The network setup is simple
and cost effective. Typical network topology is pictured below.

To SLC 5/05 Channel 1
The SLC 5/05 processor contains a 10/100Base-T, RJ45 Ethernet
connector which connects to standard Ethernet hubs via 8-wire
twisted-pair straight-through cable. To access other Ethernet
mediums, use 10/100Base-T media converters or Ethernet hubs
that can be connected together via fiber, thin-wire, or thick-wire
coaxial cables, or any other physical media commercially
available with Ethernet hubs.

When to use straight-through and cross-over pin-out:
• SLC 5/05 Ethernet port to 10/100Base-T Ethernet hub cables
utilize a straight-through pin-out (1-1, 2-2, 3-3, 6-6).
• Direct point-to-point 10/100Base-T cables connecting the SLC
5/05 Ethernet port directly to another SLC 5/05 Ethernet port (or
a computer 10/100Base-T port) require a cross-over pin-out
(1-3, 2-6, 3-1, 6-2).
Cables
Shielded and non-shielded twisted-pair 10/100Base-T cables with RJ45
connectors are supported. The maximum cable length between an
SLC 5/05 Ethernet port and a 10/100Base-T port on an Ethernet hub
(without repeaters or fiber) is 100 m (323 ft). However, in an industrial
application, cable length should be kept to a minimum.
Ethernet Connections
TCP/IP is the mechanism used to transport Ethernet messages. On top
of TCP, the Client/Server Protocol is required to establish sessions and
to send the MSG commands. Connections can be initiated by either a
client program (INTERCHANGE or RSLinx application) or a processor.
The client program or processor must first establish a connection to
the SLC 5/05 processor to enable the SLC 5/05 processor to receive
solicited messages from a client program or another processor.

Artisan Technology Group - Quality Instrumentation ... Guaranteed | (888) 88-SOURCE | www.artisantg.com
Communicating with Devices on an Ethernet Network
241
In order to send an outgoing message, the SLC 5/05 processor must
first establish a connection with the destination node at a specified IP
address on the Ethernet network. A connection is established when a
MSG instruction executes and no previous connection exists.
When a MSG instruction executes, the SLC 5/05 processor checks to
see whether a connection has been established with the destination
node. If a connection has not been established, the SLC 5/05
processor attempts to establish a connection of the peer type.
In order to receive messages from another device on Ethernet, an
incoming connection must be established. This incoming connection
is made by the sending processor and uses one incoming connection
in the receiving processor.
The SLC 5/05 processor supports a maximum of 32 connections for
the 1747-L551 processor, and 48 connections for 1747-L552 and 64
connections for 1747-L553 processor, allowing simultaneous
communication with up to 64 other devices or applications.

Configuring the Ethernet
Channel on the SLC 5/05
Processor
For outgoing connections, no more that one connection per
destination node is established. If multiple MSG instructions
use the same destination node, they share the same connection.
There are two ways to configure the SLC 5/05 Ethernet channel 1. The
configuration can be done via a BOOTP/DHCP request at processor
powerup, or by manually setting the configuration parameters by
using RSLogix 500 programming software. The configuration
parameters are shown on page 242.

Configuration Via BOOTP
BOOTP (bootstrap protocol) is a low-level protocol that TCP/IP nodes
use to obtain start-up information. By default, the SLC 5/05 processor
broadcasts BOOTP requests at powerup. The BOOTP Valid parameter
remains clear until a BOOTP reply has been received. BOOTP lets
you dynamically assign IP Addresses to processors on the Ethernet
Link.
To use BOOTP, a BOOTP Server must exist on the local Ethernet
subnet. The server is a computer that has BOOTP Server software

installed and reads a text file containing network information for
individual nodes on the network.
The host system’s BOOTP configuration file must be updated to
service requests from SLC 5/05 processors. The following parameters
must be configured.
Configurable BOOTP Parameters
Parameter
Description
IP Address
A unique IP Address for the SLC 5/05 processor.
Subnet Mask
Specifies the net and local subnet mask as per the standard on subnetting
RFC 950, Internet Standard Subnetting Procedure.
Gateway
Specifies the IP address of a gateway on the same subnet as the
SLC 5/05 processor that provides connections to another IP network.
TIP
You can use any commercially available BOOTP server. If you do
not have BOOTP Server capabilities on your network, and you
want to dynamically configure Channel 1, you can download the
free Rockwell Automation BOOTP server from the Rockwell
Automation website. Go to www.ab.com/networks/bootp.html
When BOOTP is enabled, the following events occur at power-up:
• The processor broadcasts a BOOTP-request message containing
its hardware address over the local network or subnet.
• The BOOTP server compares the hardware address with the
addresses in its look-up table.
• The BOOTP server sends a message back to the processor with
the IP address and other network information that corresponds
to the hardware address it received.
With all hardware and IP addresses in one location, you can easily
change IP addresses in the BOOTP configuration file if your network
needs change.
The BOOTP request can be disabled by clearing the BOOTP Enable
parameter in the channel Configuration File. When BOOTP Enable is
cleared (disabled), the SLC 5/05 processor uses the existing channel
configuration data.
IMPORTANT
If BOOTP is disabled, or no BOOTP server exists on the network,
you must use SLC 500 programming software to enter/change
the IP address for each processor.

Use the Rockwell BOOTP Utility
The Rockwell BOOTP utility is a standalone program that incorporates
the functionality of standard BOOTP software with a user-friendly
graphical interface. You can download it from
www.ab.com/networks/bootp.html. The device must have BOOTP
enabled (factory default) to use the utility.
To configure your device by using the BOOTP utility, perform the
following steps.
1. Run the BOOTP software. In the BOOTP Request History panel
you will see the hardware addresses of devices issuing BOOTP
requests.
2. Double-click on the hardware address of the device you want to
configure.
You will see the New Entry pop-up window with the device's
Ethernet Address (MAC).
3. Enter the IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway you want to
assign to the device, and click on OK.

The device will be added to the Relation List, displaying the
Ethernet Address (MAC) and corresponding IP Address, Subnet
Mask, and Gateway (if applicable).
Using DCHP Software To
Configure Your Processor
DHCP software automatically assigns IP addresses to client stations
logging onto a TCP/IP network. DHCP is based on BOOTP and
maintains some backward compatibility. The main difference is that
BOOTP was designed for manual configuration, while DHCP allows
for dynamic allocation of network addresses and configurations to
newly attached devices.
Be cautious about using DHCP software to configure your SLC 5/05
processor. A BOOTP client can boot from a DHCP server only if the
DHCP server is specifically written to also handle BOOTP queries.
This is specific to the DHCP software package you use. Check with
your system administrator to see if your DHCP package supports
BOOTP commands and manual IP allocation.
ATTENTION
The processor must be assigned a fixed network address. The
IP address of the processor must not be dynamically provided.
Failure to observe this precaution may result in unintended
machine motion or loss of process control.

Using Subnet Masks and
Gateways
Configure subnet masks and gateways by using the Ethernet channel
1 configuration screen.
IMPORTANT
If BOOTP is enabled, you can’t change any of the advanced
Ethernet communication characteristics.
If your network is divided into subnetworks that use gateways or
routers, you must indicate the following information when configuring
channel 1.
• Subnet mask
• Gateway address
A subnet mask is a filter that a node applies to IP addresses to
determine if an address is on the local subnet or on another subnet. If
an address is on another subnetwork, messages are routed through a
local gateway to be transferred to the destination subnetwork.
If your network is not divided into subnets, then leave the subnet
mask field at the default.

Generating Custom Data Table Monitor Pages
You can generate Custom Data Table Monitor pages with your text
editor then download them to the SLC 5/05 processor using
RSLogix 500 version 6.0 or later. The first element of the file must
contain a special tag as follows:
<!ABCDM-xx>
where xx is the automatic refresh rate in seconds (01...99).
A value outside the range defaults to a snapshot display.
You can modify the refresh rate three different ways:
• Enter the desired refresh rate and press Change
• Select Default for a 15 second refresh
• Disable the refresh by selecting Disable
Referencing Data Table Memory - the Data Table locations in the
Custom Data Table Monitor are referenced by placing custom tags into
the ASCII file of the processor. The format of the custom tag is:
<!ABDTR-file_type{file_number}:{file_element}[,#elements][%format]
[#expand][!comment]>
The items surrounded with {} are sometimes optional, whereas the
items surrounded by [] are always optional.
You must always specify the basic file reference. Depending on which
file is being referenced, file_number or file_element may be defaulted.
If the file_type is I, O or S, the file_number does not need to be
specified, but the file_element must be specified. If the file_type is not
one of the three special files, the file_number must be specified and
the file_element may default to zero (because the input, output and
status files have fixed numbers).

Description
#elements
If not specified, this defaults to one. If it is less than one,
also defaults to one. Each element is output using the same
format (whether specified with %format or defaulted). Any
associated comment is displayed only for the first element.
%format
Legal values are %b for binary, %d for decimal, %0 for
octal and %x for hexadecimal. The following file types
allow the format to be specified:
• Input
• Output
• Status
• Integer
All other file types are displayed in an appropriate format.
If a %format modifier is present, the format may be
changed by clicking on the file type/number via a web
browser.
#expand
Legal values are #c and #e. This modifier determines
whether the structure file types are displayed in their
expanded or compact formats. If a # modifier is present, the
format may be changed by clicking on the [+]/[-] via a web
browser. If a #modifier is not present, the default display of
expanded is used.
!comment
Data after the exclamation point and up to the closing > is
displayed in the Comment column of the monitor.
Fixed display formats
Float files are always output in floating point format (C%g
format). String files are always output as a null terminated
text string. Binary files are always output as four binary
nibbles. ASCII files are displayed in a memory dump format.

Appendix
H
Calculating Heat Dissipation for the SLC 500
Control System
This appendix will assist you in calculating the heat dissipation of
your SLC 500 controller. It consists of:
•
•
•
•
a definition of key term.
a table and graph.
an example heat dissipation calculation.
a heat dissipation worksheet.
To select an enclosure see page 40.
Definition of Key Terms
We use these terms throughout this appendix. Familiarize yourself
with them before proceeding further.
Watts per Point - maximum heat dissipation that can occur in each
field wiring point when energized.
Minimum Watts - amount of heat dissipation that can occur when
there is no field power present.
Total Watts - the watts per point plus the minimum watts (with all
points energized).
Calculating Module Heat
Dissipation
To calculate the heat dissipation of your SLC controller you must
consider:
• the maximum heat dissipated (with field power applied) by the
processor, all I/O and specialty modules, and any peripheral
devices for each chassis.
• the heat dissipated by the power supply. This is determined by
the maximum load on the power supply of the processor, each
I/O and specialty module, peripheral device, and device
drawing power directly off the power supply via the POWER
OUT terminals.

262
Calculating Heat Dissipation for the SLC 500 Control System
Calculated Watts vs. Total Watts
You calculate maximum heat dissipation by using one of these
methods.
• Calculated watts method
• Total watts method
Use calculated watts if you know exactly how many outputs and
inputs on each card are active at any given time. This method will
give you a lower, more accurate heat dissipation calculation than the
total watts method. With this method, use the formula below for
calculating the heat dissipation of each module. Then use these values
in step 1 of the Example Worksheet for Calculating Heat Dissipation
on page 268.
(points energized x watts per point) + minimum watts = heat
dissipation of module
Use total watts if you are not sure how many points on a module are
energized at any time. Total watts is the watts per point (with all
points energized) plus the minimum watts. Total watts generated by
each module are provided in the table on page 263.
Once you have determined which method you will use to calculate
the heat dissipation of your modules, see the Example Worksheet for
Calculating Heat Dissipation on page 268. This worksheet shows you how to
calculate the heat dissipation for the example SLC control system on page 267.

This output card uses 5.5 W because only 10 points are on at any one time. Using the calculated watts formula - (number of points energized x watts per point) + minimum
watts = heat dissipation of module - the calculated watts for the 1746-OW16 module is 5.5 W: (10 points x.33) + 5.17 = 5.5 W.
