Configuring a CTRIO Module for Do-more CPUs
1
With Do-more CPUs, the CTRIO Workbench software utility is not used. The functionality
of CTRIO Workbench is integrated into the Module Configuration for the CTRIO module.
2
To access it in Do-more Designer, open the System Configuration page, select Module
Configuration from the directory on the left, then find the CTRIO module you are
configuring in the list provided. Click the module to select it, then select Edit Config.

If you are using a Do-more CPU, the rest of this chapter does not pertain to you. See the
following chapters for information on configuring the inputs and outputs of your module
using Do-more Designer.

A What is CTRIO Workbench?
CTRIO Workbench is the software utility you will use to configure the CTRIO module’s
B
inputs and outputs. Workbench also lets you setup the CTRIO’s built-in scaling function
that will scale signals to desired engineering units, switch between the CTRIO’s Program
C
mode and Run mode, monitor I/O status and functions, and have diagnostic control of
module functions.

Chapter 3: Introduction to CTRIO Workbench
NOTE: CTRIO Workbench Version 2.2.0 is required for the Hx-CTRIO2. Download the latest version of the
CTRIO Workbench utility at no charge from the Host Engineering Web site: www.hosteng.com.
Installing CTRIO Workbench
The CTRIO Workbench utility installs directly from its executable file. Double click on the
Setup.exe icon. The install shield will step you through the installation process. The utility
installs into C:\HAPTools directory. Find shortcuts to CTRIO Workbench from the
Windows Start Menu under All Programs>AutomationDirect Tools.
Getting Started with CTRIO Workbench
Several paths are available to start CTRIO Workbench. All users will find CTRIO
Workbench at Start>Programs>AutomationDirect Tools>CTRIO Workbench. DirectSOFT5
users will find CTRIO Workbench in the Utilities section of the DSLaunch Window.
Offline CTRIO Configuration
A complete CTRIO configuration file (.cwb) can be created Offline. (Refer to chapter 6 for
offline addressing guidelines for some of the interface devices.)
To launch the CTRIO Workbench 2
Offline version, go to
Start>Programs>AutomationDirect
Tools>CTRIO WB2 - Offline.
In the Workbench Offline window
shown to the right, click on the Select
PLC button. Select desired PLC
or interface device.
The only limitations in the
Offline version are that you
cannot access Monitor I/O and
that you cannot connect to the
CTRIO from the Offline utility.
Save the configuration file to disk
and connect to the CTRIO using
the appropriate Workbench
support version, then write the
file to the CTRIO.

Online CTRIO Configuration
To configure the CTRIO module Online, a CTRIO must be installed in the PLC base or
Terminator I/O system, and the system power must be on. Your PC communicates with the
CTRIO module through the PLC or interface device port.
DirectSOFT5 Users
You will need to connect your PC to the CPU,
DCM or ECOM module. If you are linked to your
CPU through DirectSOFT5, CTRIO Workbench
will start via the existing link. If you are
“disconnected” from your PLC and start CTRIO
Workbench, you will be prompted to establish a link
to your CTRIO module.
DirectSOFT5 users will find CTRIO Workbench in the
DSLaunch Window’s Utilities section.
WinPLC, EBC and PLC>ERM>EBC Users
You will need to connect your PC to the RJ45 Ethernet port on
the WinPLC or EBC interface device directly or via hub,
switch,etc. (Connect to the ST-style fiber optic port on the HxEBC-F units.)
Access the WinPLC and EBC support version at
Start>Programs>AutomationDirect Tools>CTRIO Workbench
or in the DirectSOFT5 Launch Window Utilities menu. Then
select the appropriate Workbench version.
You will be prompted to establish an Ethernet link to
your CTRIO module.
NOTE: WinPLCs will need to be given an IP address before
connecting with Workbench.
EBCs will need to have an address selected by DIP Switch or
via NetEdit before connecting with Workbench.

Chapter 3: Introduction to CTRIO Workbench
PBC, DEVNETS and MODBUS Users
You will need to connect your PC to the RJ12 serial port on
the PBC, DEVNETS or MODBUS interface device.
Access the various support versions at
Start>Programs>AutomationDirect Tools>CTRIO
Workbench or in the DirectSOFT5 Launch Window
Utilities menu. Then select the appropriate Workbench
version.
You will be prompted to establish a serial link to your
CTRIO module.
Select the PC serial port Workbench will use to
connect to the CTRIO module.
Successful On-line Connection
Once you are connected to your CTRIO module, you will enter the main window of
CTRIO Workbench. Here, you select the CTRIO module you wish to configure by clicking
on its slot number in the “Installed Modules” box. You will be able to enter Workbench’s
Configuration dialog, and after successfully configuring the module you will be able to toggle
the CTRIO module between Program Mode and Run Mode and enter the Monitor I/O
dialog.

Module Modes of Operation
On the CTRIO Workbench main window, a single button toggles
between Run Mode and Program Mode. The Module Mode
indicator will tell you which mode your module is in. You can
make configuration changes in either Run Mode or Program
Mode, but to save your configuration to the module, you must
click “Write Module” which is only active in Program Mode.
In the lower left corner of the main Workbench dialog, is the
Config Status indicator. If the current configuration is different
from the CTRIO and different from any saved files, the indicator
will display the word “Changed.” If the current configuration has
been written to the module or a file, the message will read “Same
as Module,” “Same as File,” or “Same as Both.”
Program Mode - Configuring the CTRIO Module
After the configuration is created or changed in CTRIO Workbench, it must be “written” to
the CTRIO module. This is accomplished by returning to
the main CTRIO Workbench window and clicking on
“Write Module.”
If the configuration was created using Workbench Offline
version, you must connect your PC to the CTRIO module
through the CPU/controller and write the configuration to
the module.
NOTE: Entering program mode takes the CTRIO module offline. Input pulses are not read or
processed in Program mode, and all outputs are disabled. CPUs will hold last value in memory while
the CTRIO is in Program Mode.
Run Mode - Start Processing I/O Pulses with the CTRIO Module
Selecting Run Mode causes the CTRIO module to begin processing pulses based on the I/O
configuration you created.
In Run mode the CTRIO Workbench utility also allows you to monitor and verify the
proper operation of inputs and outputs. You can see the count change, reset, etc. using the
Monitor I/O dialog. Monitor I/O is very useful for debugging and commissioning of a new
system. See chapter 7 for information on Monitor I/O.
The CTRIO mode follows the CPU mode. If the CPU is placed in Run Mode, the CTRIO
module will also enter Run Mode. If the CPU is placed in STOP or PROGRAM Mode, the
CTRIO will enter Program Mode. The CTRIO also responds to mode changes made in
Workbench and can be placed in Run Mode while the CPU is in Stop or Program Mode.
The CTRIO module responds to the most recent change whether performed in Workbench
or from the CPU.
NOTE: The CTRIO module will not enter Run Mode if it does not have a valid configuration.
