Basic Introduction
TPEditor software is the user-friendly program editor of TP series terminal panels for Windows. The users can
see the design result on the screen immediately, motivated by the concept of “What You See is What You
Get” that TPEditor adopts. The screen on TPEditor is the same as the actual screen of TP series. TPEditor
uses object-oriented programming design. In this way, the users can move the object to the desired position,
and change its outlook and size just by using the mouse. It is a user-friendly program that simplifies the editing
of the image and enhances the use of Delta TP series terminal panels.

Step 3. It is used to set write-in PLC Device Name, i.e. T, C, D or the Device Name, i.e. @V of TP05/08. The
Device Number is shown in decimal format and the users could click
to select the necessary
Device Name. If the connected controller is AC motor drive (Inverter), it does not need to check the
Device Name. The symbol $ will show after the Device Name to represent the absolute address of AC
motor drive. What the users need to do is to input absolute address in the field of Device Number. For
example, enter the register D10, timer T1 and the absolute address of AC motor drive $2003 to read
the output frequency. The communication address is used to determine which PLC or AC motor drive
will be communicated with, i.e. the communication address of the connected PLC or AC motor drive.
The users also could select COM1 (RS-232) or COM2 (RS-485/RS-422) for the communication port
that used to connect to the monitored equipment. After completing the settings, click OK button, and
return to Numeric/ASCII Display Setting tab (Figure 1-63).
Step 4. In the Numeric/ASDII Display Setting tab, the users can enter Refer Device, select Value Type and
Length, choose Integer and Decimal Number, determine Frame Setting Font Setting and Alignment,
and decide if Leading Zeros option is enabled or not.
Step 5. Value Type could be Unsigned, Signed, Hex, BCD, ASCII, Binary and Float these selections. Value
Length could be either 16 bits or 32 bits. Alignment option is used to align the display value to be left,
right or middle.
Step 6. Integer Number and Decimal Number are used to set the display value and its decimal places. For
example, suppose that the value of Timer T0 is K500 and its actual value is 50 seconds. If the Integer
Number is set to 3, the display value will be 500. If the Decimal Number is set to 1 as well, the display
value will be 050.0, i.e. the actual timer value.
Step 7. Frame Setting could be No Frame, Single Frame, Double Frame, Thick Frame, Dotted Line Frame or
Dot Frame for selections. As for the Font Setting, the users could choose 5x8, 8x8, 8x12 or 8x16.
Step 8. If the Leading Zeros option is enabled, it indicates that the users want to fill 0 before the display value.
For example, suppose that the entered value is 324836, if Integer Number is set to 6 and Decimal
Number is set to 2, when the Leading Zeros option is not enabled, the display value will be 3248.36.
But, under the same conditions, when the Leading Zeros option is enabled, the display value will be
003248.36.

the icon
on the toolbar to import a Dynamic Bitmap file. Using this dynamic object can
read the value of PLC register, perform the value comparison and display the result through
the preset picture on the screen of TP series directly. The difference is that the Dynamic
Bitmap could change according to the corresponding state and the Static Bitmap could not
change. (If Bit option is selected, Total States are 2, the Current State could be either 0 or 1
only. If Value option is selected, Total States could be set up to 255 and the Current State
could change depending on the numbers set in the filed of Total States.)

Figure 1-76
Step 3. When the Refer Device is set to Value, the Display Sequence could be either “From Max to Min” or
“From Min to Max” (Figure 1-76).
Step 4. The Dynamic Bitmap Setting tab is similar to Word Lamp Setting tab. Some options are even the same,
such as Refer Device, Value Type and Value Length, etc. But in Dynamic Bitmap Setting tab, the Total
States could be set up to 255, i.e. from 0 to 254. After double-clicking the selected Dynamic Bitmap
object, a Open dialog box will appear and the users could select the desired display picture (the picture
must be a BMP file). The state of the Dynamic Bitmap object changes, and the corresponding display
picture changes as well. Each state should have its corresponding setting range. The option of “Device
Value >= Range Value” is used to set the corresponding setting range. For example, suppose that
Display Sequence is set to “From Max to Min”, if the setting of “Device Value >= Range Value” is set to
300 for Current State 0, and the setting of “Device Value >= Range Value” is set to 100 for Current
State 1, when the Device Value is equal to or greater than 300, the picture of Current State 0 will show
on the screen; when the Device Value is equal to or greater than 100, the picture of Current 1 will show

on the screen. Please note that if the Device Value is smaller than 100, no picture will display as the
users do not specify its Current State and display picture. The setting range value of Current State 0
should be the greater than the setting range value of Current State 1, the setting range value of Current
State 1 should be the greater than the setting range value of Current State 2, the setting range value of
Current State 2 should be the greater than the setting range value of Current State 3, and vise versa.
Step 5. When the users double click the field of “Device Value >= Range Value” by using the mouse, the
following All States Table tab shown in Figure 1-77 will open for the users to set the setting range

For example, suppose that Display Sequence is set to “From Max to Min”, if the setting of “Device
Value >= Range Value” is set to 300 for Current State 0, and the setting of “Device Value >= Range
Value” is set to 100 for Current State 1, when the Device Value is equal to or greater than 300, the
picture of Current State 0 will show on the screen; when the Device Value is equal to or greater than
100, the picture of Current 1 will show on the screen. Please note that if the Device Value is smaller
than 100, no picture will display as the users do not specify its Current State and display picture. The
setting range value of Current State 0 should be the greater than the setting range value of Current
State 1, the setting range value of Current State 1 should be the greater than the setting range value of

a BMP file). Each state should have its corresponding input text. The state of the Multi-State
Bitmap/Label object changes, and the corresponding input text changes as well. The option of “Device
Value >= Range Value” is used to set the corresponding setting range. For example, suppose that
Display Sequence is set to “From Max to Min”, if the setting of “Device Value >= Range Value” is set to
300 for Current State 0, and the setting of “Device Value >= Range Value” is set to 100 for Current
State 1, when the Device Value is equal to or greater than 300, the picture of Current State 0 will show
on the screen; when the Device Value is equal to or greater than 100, the picture of Current 1 will show
on the screen. Please note that if the Device Value is smaller than 100, no picture will display as the
users do not specify its Current State and display picture. The setting range value of Current State 0
should be the greater than the setting range value of Current State 1, the setting range value of Current
State 1 should be the greater than the setting range value of Current State 2, the setting range value of
Current State 2 should be the greater than the setting range value of Current State 3, and vise versa.

2.
RS232: It is used to set the transmission speed (baud rate), data length, parity check, and stop bit of RS232 communication.
3.
RS485: It is used to set the transmission speed (baud rate), data length, parity check, and stop bit of RS485 communication.
The above three items should be set in accordance with the settings set in Tools(T) > Communication Settings(C)
to ensure the correct communication (Figure 2-1). After selecting Tools(T) > Communication Settings(C), the
Communication Setting dialog box will open (Figure 2-2) and the users can set TP Station Address, PC COM Port
and Baud Rate these options. Please ensure that the actual communication address of TP series and the settings
set in TPEditor must be the same; otherwise a communication error may occur.

positive terminals of two PLCs to the RS-485 positive terminal of TP04G, and connect the RS-485
negative terminals of two PLCs to the RS-485 negative terminal of TP04G. Then, choose “5. Execute”
in the system main menu of TP04G, the communication between TP04G and PLC can be established
and the editing program can be executed also.
