Preface
Preface
The TP series is a small HMI (human machine interface) with big features. It allows
users to monitor and control PLCs, Variable Frequency Drives, and other controllers. The
TP series may also be purchased with graphic capabilities (TP--G models). The TP series
products are programmed using the TPEdit software.
Getting Started
Users should read the entire manual before using the TPEdit software or TP series
hardware.
It is not recommended to use a button on the TP series product as an emergency
stop button. The TP series is powered by external power. If power is lost, the
emergency stop button will not work.
TP Series Hardware Introduction
Please refer to the information packaged with unit for details regarding dimensions
and specification of all TP models.
TP04G features:
Dimension: 140*90*27.5(mm)
Keypad: thin-film keypad with 5 user-defined function keys and 7 control keys.
Function keys: F0/F5, F1/F6, F2/F7, F3/F8 and F4/F9.
Control keys: Esc, Shift, Up/PgUp, Down/PgDn, Left, Right
Keystroke Life: Five hundred thousand. The keystroke life may
decrease due to environment (such as corrosive liquids or gas), object
used to depress keys, and the pressure used to depress the keys.

DELTA ELECTRONICS, INC. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
Chapter 1 Overview and Installation
1-2-2 Mounting
Mounting TP04G into the opening is done by carefully fitting the unit into the
opening and pressing firmly on all four corners.
Thickness:1.0〜4.0mm
1-3 Connection
The TP04G may connect to a Delta DVP-PLC via a DVPACAB215 cable (Note 1). It
may also connect to other PLCs or AC drives using a user supplied cable. The TP
series may connect to more than one device using the 2-wire RS485 connection.
1-3-1 One-To-One Connection
When one PLC connects to a TP04G, the TP04G should be set to one-to-one
communication.
Figure 1
1-3-2 Multiple Link Connection
When many PLCs are connected to one TP04G or many TP04Gs are connected
together, the TP04G should be set to multiple link. Please refer to appendix B for detail.
The factory setting of communication address of TP04G is 1. Users may change
the “TP04 address” in system menu. All other communication settings may also be
updated in the system menu.

1-3-3 Programming Connection
The TP04G may use the RS232 or RS485 to connect to a PC.
recommended connection is using the RS232 port and a DVPACAB215 cable.
The
1-4 Power connection
TP04G requires a 24VDC at 150mA power source for operation. Proper grounding
is required to filter any electrical noise and make sure the hardware components work
normally.
1-5 Cleaning
When cleaning the TP04G, please use soft cotton cloth and water. For stubborn
marks, a cleaning liquid may be used, but try a small section to verify it will not damage the
Mylar cover.

TP04G Operation and Settings
This chapter will introduce the two working modes of the TP04G:
! System main menu mode: users can change the settings of the HMI using five
main menus. This chapter will discuss the content and function of each menu,
and teach you how to use the TP04G.
! Display monitor mode: this will display on screen status of devices connected to
the TP04G (ex: PLC, AC drives or other hardware devices). User can use the
TPEdit software to create the type of monitoring needed of each external piece of
hardware.

3-3 Basic Introduction
TPEdit is the program editor for DELTA PLC series use in WINDOWS. You can see
the design result on the screen immediately by concept of “What You See is What You
Get” that TPEdit adopts. What you see on the screen is what display on HMI. TPEdit
uses object-oriented method to reach drag edition. In this way, you can move the
components to anywhere and change shapes and sizes by using mouse. It is very easy
for you to use this software.
3-4 Skills for Mouse Operation
In the window, you can operate with either keyboard or mouse. But it will be easier
to operate with mouse.
There are four main operation functions in Windows:
! One click left-button: to select function or component item.
! Double-click left-button: to enter or execute the item.
! Drag: press and hold on the left button to drag the mouse to move or adjust size.
Once you release the button, the operation is finished. It is used to move or
adjust size.
! One click right button: it will display a pop-up menu of editing operation for you to
select.
It is usually to show mouse pointer on the screen to let you know where the position you
are. There are many shapes of mouse to mean the different situation. You can know the
edition status by the mouse pointer.

hidden, the button won’t have any frame on the HMI page but it still has the
same function when executing.
Step 9. After setting and press OK, the button will be used according to the setting
function.

Input button: Press this button and HMI will display built-in value on screen. You could
use function key or common key to enter value. When pressing Enter,
HMI will send value to PLC corresponding register.
Step 1. The setting steps are the same as ON/OFF button. There are some setting
items are different in the dialog box.
Step 2. The value length could be set to 16 bits or 32 bits. Value type could be
unsigned decimal, signed decimal, hexadecimal and BCD.
Step 3. If you set 3 for integer number and 2 for decimal number, the whole number
will be displayed as 000.00. If you set 5000 for the maximum value, the
maximum you could input is 050.00 due to there are 2 decimals. If you set 500
for the maximum value, the maximum you could input is 5.00.
Step 4. After finishing input, press OK to enter and the button will be used by the
function you set.
Setting constant button: pressing this button and HMI will send the constant setting
to PLC corresponding register.

Communication Connection Mode
Before any communication between the TP and TPEdit software is conducted, the
user should complete the TP04G hardware settings and connect the correct wiring
between the two components.
There are three items in the communication protocol of TP series product that must be set
for communication to work properly.
!
The TP address and control port.
!
The RS-232 settings.
!
The RS-485 settings.
The software communication settings must also be set correctly to achieve proper
communication.
In the TPEdit software select “Settings” then “Communication Protocol”. Enter the TP
address, communication port, communication speed, data bit, parity check and stop bit as
shown in the following diagram.
After entering the correct settings, the PC is capable of communicating to the TP04G.
