Safety Precautions
Warnings
WARNING
During Power Supply
Do not touch the terminal section while power is ON.
Electric shock may occur.
Do not attempt to take any Unit apart.
In particular, high-voltage parts are present in Units that supply power while power is supplied or immediately after power is turned OFF. Touching any of these parts may result in
electric shock. There are sharp parts inside the Unit that may cause injury.
Fail-safe Measures
Provide safety measures in external circuits to ensure safety in the system if an abnormality
occurs due to malfunction of the CPU Unit, other Units, or slaves or due to other external
factors affecting operation.
Not doing so may result in serious accidents due to incorrect operation.
Emergency stop circuits, interlock circuits, limit circuits, and similar safety measures must
be provided in external control circuits.
The CPU Unit will turn OFF all outputs from Basic Output Units in the following cases. The
remote I/O slaves will operate according to the settings in the slaves.
• If a power supply error occurs.
• If the power supply connection becomes faulty.
• If a CPU watchdog timer error or CPU reset occurs.
• If a Controller error in the major fault level occurs.
• While the CPU Unit is on standby until RUN mode is entered after the power is turned ON
External safety measures must be provided to ensure safe operation of the system in such
cases.
The outputs may remain ON or OFF due to deposition or burning of the output relays or
destruction of the output transistors. As a countermeasure for such problems, external
safety measures must be provided to ensure safe operation of the system.
If external power supplies for slaves or other devices are overloaded or short-circuited, the
voltage will drop, outputs will turn OFF, and the system may be unable to read inputs. Provide external safety measures in control with monitoring of external power supply voltage
as required so that the system operates safely in such a case.
You must take fail-safe measures to ensure safety in the event of incorrect, missing, or
abnormal signals caused by broken signal lines, momentary power interruptions, or other
causes.
Not doing so may result in serious accidents due to incorrect operation.

Concepts
 EMC Directives
OMRON devices that comply with EC Directives also conform to the related EMC standards so that
they can be more easily built into other devices or the overall machine. The actual products have
been checked for conformity to EMC standards.*1
Whether the products conform to the standards in the system used by the customer, however, must
be checked by the customer. EMC-related performance of the OMRON devices that comply with EC
Directives will vary depending on the configuration, wiring, and other conditions of the equipment or
control panel on which the OMRON devices are installed. The customer must, therefore, perform
the final check to confirm that devices and the overall machine conform to EMC standards.
*1. Applicable EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) standards are as follows:
EMS (Electromagnetic Susceptibility): EN 61131-2
EMI (Electromagnetic Interference): EN 61131-2 (Radiated emission: 10-m regulations).
 Low Voltage Directive
Always ensure that devices operating at voltages of 50 to 1,000 VAC and 75 to 1,500 VDC meet the
required safety standards. The applicable directive is EN 61131-2.
 Conformance to EC Directives
The NX-series Units comply with EC Directives. To ensure that the machine or device in which the

1-1-1
Digital I/O Unit Features
The Digital I/O Units are NX Units to process inputs and outputs of digital signals (ON/OFF signals).
The NX-series Digital I/O Units have the following features.
Synchronous I/O with Refresh Cycle of the NX Bus
When the EtherCAT Coupler Unit is used together with NX Units that support synchronous I/O refreshing, the I/O control of multiple NX Units can be synchronized at the time to synchronize with the refresh
cycle of the NX bus.
This provides an accurate I/O control because it suppresses jitter in the I/O timing of multiple NX Units.
Controlling Outputs at Fixed Intervals After Inputs Change
You can use EtherCAT Coupler Units with NX Units that support input refreshing with input changed
time and with other NX Units that support output refreshing with specified time stamp to control the outputs at fixed intervals after the sensor inputs change.

Description
The EtherCAT master manages the network, monitors the status of slaves,
and exchanges I/O data with slaves.
The EtherCAT Coupler Unit serves as an interface for process data communications on the EtherCAT network between the NX Units and the EtherCAT
master.
The I/O data for the NX Units is accumulated in the EtherCAT Coupler Unit
and then all of the data is exchanged with the EtherCAT master at the same
time.
1
The EtherCAT Coupler Unit can also perform message communications (SDO
communications) with the EtherCAT master.
The NX Units perform I/O processing with connected external devices.
1-2-2 System Configuration
(C)
Item
The NX Units perform process data communications with the EtherCAT master through the EtherCAT Coupler Unit.
The End Cover is attached to the end of the Slave Terminal.
The Sysmac Studio runs on a personal computer and it is used to configure
the EtherCAT network and EtherCAT Slave Terminal, and to program, monitor,
and troubleshoot the Controllers.
You can connect the computer, in which the Sysmac Studio is installed, to the
peripheral USB port or built-in EtherNet/IP port on an NJ/NX-series CPU Unit
to set up the EtherCAT Slave Terminal. Or you can connect it to the peripheral
USB port on the EtherCAT Coupler Unit to set up the EtherCAT Slave Terminal.
The ESI file contains information that is unique to the EtherCAT Slave Terminal in XML format. You can load the ESI file into the Sysmac Studio to easily
allocate Slave Terminal process data and configure other settings.
The ESI files for OMRON EtherCAT slaves are already installed in the Sysmac
Studio. You can update the Sysmac Studio to get the ESI files for the most
recent models.
Use a double-shielded cable with aluminum tape and braiding of Ethernet category 5 (100Base-TX) or higher, and use straight wiring.
*1. An EtherCAT Slave Terminal cannot be connected to any of the OMRON CJ1W-NC81/82 Position Control
Units even though they can operate as EtherCAT masters.

Description
With this I/O refreshing method, the refresh cycle of the NX
bus and the I/O refresh cycles of the NX Units are asynchronous.
With this I/O refreshing method, the timing to read inputs or to
refresh outputs is synchronous on a fixed interval between
more than one NX Unit on more than one Slave Terminal.
With this I/O refreshing method, the NX Units record the DC
times when inputs change or perform outputs at specified DC
times. These times are asynchronous to the NX bus refresh
cycles.
Data exchange between the NX Units and EtherCAT Coupler
Unit are performed cyclically on the NX bus refresh cycles.
With this I/O refreshing method, the Input Units record the DC
times when inputs changed.
This function eliminates the chattering or the noises from input
signals.

Terminal holes
The terminal number indications are the same regardless of the number of
terminals on the terminal block.
Insert a flat-blade screwdriver into these holes to connect and remove the
wires.
The wires are inserted into these holes.
The NX-TB2 and NX-TB1 Terminal Blocks have different terminal current capacities.
The NX-TB2 has 10 A and NX-TB1 has 4 A.
To differentiate between the two models of Terminal Blocks, use the terminal number column indications. The Terminal Block with white letters on a dark background is the NX-TB2.
You can mount either NX-TB1 or NX-TB2 Terminal Blocks to the Units that the current
capacity specification of the terminals is 4 A or less.
You can only mount the NX-TB2 Terminal Block to the Units that the current capacity specification of the terminals is greater than 4 A.
Additional Information
• Each Digital I/O Unit is compatible with only one of three types of terminal blocks. You cannot use a terminal block with a number of terminals that differs from the specifications for a
particular Unit.
• The 8-terminal type and 12-terminal type do not have terminal holes and release holes for
following terminal numbers.
8-terminal type: A2, A4, A6, A8, B2, B4, B6, and B8
12-terminal type: A7, A8, B7, and B8

The total current consumption of I/O power supplied from the NX bus must be within the range of the
maximum I/O power supply current of the Communications Coupler Unit or the Additional I/O Power
Supply Unit.
To confirm this and to calculate the I/O power supply capacity, calculate the total current consumption
from I/O power supply from the NX bus.
The total current consumption from I/O power supply from the NX bus is the total sum of current consumption from I/O power supply of the NX Unit that supplies the I/O power from the NX bus, the current
consumption of each applicable I/O circuit, and current consumption of any connected external
devices.
Note that the current consumption from I/O power supply indicated in the data sheet for each Unit type
does not include the load current of any external connection load and current consumption of any connected external devices.
 Total Current Consumption from I/O Power Supply of the Digital Input Units
= (Current consumption from I/O power supply of the Digital Input Units) + (Input current of the Digital Input Units × Number of input points used) + (Total current consumption of connected external
devices)
 Total Current Consumption from I/O Power Supply of the Digital Output Units
= (Current consumption from I/O power supply of the Digital Output Units) + (Total load current of
connection load) + (Total current consumption of connected external devices)
Refer to A-1 Data Sheet on page A-2 for the current consumption from I/O power supply for each Digital
I/O Unit model and input current for each Digital Input Unit model.
There are no above confirmations if you use the NX Unit that supplies the I/O power from external
source.
Use the total current consumption from I/O power supply from external source and the total current consumption from the I/O power supply from the above NX bus together to calculate the I/O power supply
capacity.

Wiring to MIL/Fujitsu Connectors
This section describes wiring for the Digital I/O Units with connectors.
Depending on the connector, the following methods are used to connect the Digital I/O Units with connectors to external I/O devices.
• Use an OMRON Connecting Cable (equipped with a special connector) to connect to a Terminal
Block or Relay Terminal.
• Use a special connector and make your own cable.
Precautions for Safe Use
• Do not apply voltages that exceed the rated value to any Input Unit.
• Do not apply voltages or connect loads to the Output Units or slaves in excess of the maximum ratings.
• Turn ON the power after checking the connector's wiring.
• Do not pull the cable. Doing so will damage the cable.
• Bending the cable too sharply can damage or break wiring in the cable.
• If the external power supply has polarity, connect it with the correct polarity. If the polarity is
reversed, current may flow in the reverse direction and damage the connected devices
regardless of the operation of the Unit.
Additional Information
The Digital I/O Units with 32 points and Fujitsu connectors have the same connector pin allocations as the C200H High-density I/O Units, CS-series I/O Units with connectors and CJ-series
I/O Units with connectors to make them compatible.
Connecting to Connector-Terminal Block Conversion Units or I/O
Relay Terminals
OMRON Connecting Cable can be used to connect Digital I/O Units with connectors to OMRON Connector-Terminal Block Conversion Units or to OMRON I/O Relay Terminals.

Checking the Wiring
Check the wiring from the I/O Map or Watch Tab Page of the Sysmac Studio.
For Input Units, you can turn ON/OFF the inputs from external devices that are connected to the target
Units and monitor the results.
For Output Units, you can refresh the I/O outputs of the target Units with the specified values by forced
refreshing, and check the operation of the connected external devices.
Additional Information
If you check the wiring for the Output Units that support output refreshing with specified time
stamp, set the value of the Output Bit  Time Stamp parameter to 0. At this time, the Output
Units refresh outputs immediately and outputs are refreshed according to the output set values.
If you use the I/O Map, you can also monitor and perform forced refreshing even if does not define the
variables and create the algorithms. Therefore, you can easily check the wiring.
Also, if you use I/O checking, you can check the wiring by connecting the computer in which the Sysmac Studio is installed to the peripheral USB port on the EtherCAT Coupler Unit. Therefore, you can
check the wiring in conditions such as the following.
• When you want to check the wiring in advance even though the CPU Unit is temporarily unavailable,
such as when commissioning the equipment
• When you want to check the wiring in advance even though the wiring of the EtherCAT network is not
completed, such as when commissioning the equipment
• When you want to check the wiring when the CPU Unit and an EtherCAT Slave Terminal have some
distance from each other
• When more than one EtherCAT Slave Terminal is used and more than one person wants to check the
wiring at the same time
Refer to the EtherCAT Coupler Unit User's Manual (Cat. No. W519-E1-03 or later) for details on I/O
checking.
Refer to the Sysmac Studio Version 1 Operation Manual (Cat. No. W504) for details on monitoring and

appropriate measures, such as inserting an ON delay into the user program after turning ON the
sensor.
A programming example is shown below.
The sensor's power supply voltage is used as the input bit to Sensor_power.
A 100-ms timer delay (the time required for an OMRON Proximity Sensor to stabilize) is created in
the user program.

I/O Refreshing from CPU Unit to Slave Terminal
The CPU Unit cyclically performs I/O refreshing with the Slave Terminal through the Communications
Master and Communications Coupler Units.
There are the following four cycles that affect I/O refresh operations between the NX Unit on a Slave
Terminal and the CPU Unit.

I/O Refreshing Methods

5-2-1
Types of I/O Refreshing Methods
The I/O refreshing methods that you can use between the Communications Coupler Unit and the NX
Units are determined by the Communications Coupler Unit that is used.
When an EtherCAT Coupler Unit is connected to the built-in EtherCAT port on the NJ/NX-series CPU
Unit, the I/O refreshing methods that you can use between the EtherCAT Coupler Unit and the NX Units
are as follows.
I/O refreshing method name
Free-Run refreshing
Synchronous I/O refreshing
Time stamp refreshing
Input refreshing with input
changed time
Output refreshing with
specified time stamp
Outline of operation
With this I/O refreshing method, the refresh cycle of the NX bus and the I/O
refresh cycles of the NX Units are asynchronous.
With this I/O refreshing method, the timing to read inputs or to refresh outputs is synchronous on a fixed interval between more than one NX Unit on
more than one Slave Terminal.
With this I/O refreshing method, the NX Units record the DC times when
inputs change or perform outputs at specified DC times. These times are
asynchronous to the NX bus refresh cycles.
Data exchange between the NX Units and EtherCAT Coupler Unit are performed cyclically on the NX bus refresh cycles.
With this I/O refreshing method, the Input Units record the DC times when
inputs changed.
With this I/O refreshing method, the Output Units refresh outputs at specified
DC times.
Since the EtherCAT Coupler Unit can execute all I/O refreshing methods at the same time, you can use NX Units
with different I/O refreshing methods together in the EtherCAT Slave Terminal.
The only I/O refreshing method that you can use between the EtherNet/IP Coupler Unit and the NX Units is
Free-Run refreshing.

Additional Information
Selecting NX Units
The I/O refreshing methods that you can use depend on the model of the NX Unit. After you decide on
which I/O refreshing method to use, select the NX Units.

5-2-2 Setting the I/O Refreshing Methods
The EtherCAT Slave Terminals with enabled distributed clocks and all EtherCAT slaves that
support DC synchronization execute I/O processing based on Sync0 that is shared on the
EtherCAT network. However, since the specifications and performance for the timing to read
inputs or to refresh outputs for EtherCAT slaves and NX Units are different, the timing to read
inputs or to refresh outputs is not simultaneous.
Refer to the manuals for the EtherCAT slaves for information on the timing to read inputs or to
refresh outputs in EtherCAT slaves.

Free-Run Refreshing
With this I/O refreshing method, the refresh cycle of the NX bus and I/O refresh cycles of the NX Units
are asynchronous.
Digital I/O Units read inputs or refresh outputs at the time of I/O refreshing.
This method is used when it is not necessary to be aware of factors such as the I/O timing jitter and the
concurrency of the timing to read inputs and refresh outputs between the NX Units.
Description of Operation
• You can connect the following NX Units to the Slave Terminal to use this method.
The NX Units that support Free-Run refreshing
• The Communications Coupler Unit performs I/O refreshing for NX Units in order. (Refer to (a) in the
figure below.)
• The NX Units read inputs or refresh outputs at the time of I/O refreshing. (Refer to (b) in the figure
below.)
• The Communications Coupler Unit can read the most recent input value at the time of I/O refreshing
and the NX Units can control the most recent output value at the time of I/O refreshing. However,
since I/O refreshing is performed in order, timing to read inputs or to refresh outputs for each NX Unit
in the Slave Terminal does not occur at the same time. (Refer to (c) in the figure below.)
• The interval of I/O refreshing varies with the processing conditions of the Communications Coupler
Unit or the host communications master. Therefore, the interval of the timing to read inputs or to
refresh outputs for NX Unit is not always the same. (Refer to (d) in the figure below.)
• In order to read input values correctly, you must set the inputs before the total of the ON/OFF
response time and the input filter time from the timing to read inputs for each NX Unit.
• The ON/OFF response time is needed from the timing to refresh outputs until setting the output status of external terminals on the NX Units.

Synchronous Input Refreshing
With this I/O refreshing method, the timing to read inputs is synchronized on a fixed interval between
more than one NX Unit on the Slave Terminal.
This method is used when the problem such as input timing jitter or offset of timing to read inputs
between more than one NX Unit happens.
Description of Operation
• This method is used when you connect the NX Units that support synchronous I/O refreshing to the
EtherCAT Coupler Unit that is connected to the built-in EtherCAT port on the NJ/NX-series CPU Unit.
• All Digital Input Units and Analog Input Units that operate with synchronous input refreshing in the
Slave Terminal read their inputs at the same time at a fixed interval bases on Sync0. (Refer to (a) in
the figure below.)*1
• The Communications Coupler Unit reads the input values, which are read by the Unit at the timing of
reading inputs, at immediate I/O refreshing. (Refer to (b) in the figure below.)
• The interval of I/O refreshing varies with the processing conditions of the Communications Coupler
Unit or the host communications master. (Refer to (c) in the figure below.) The timing to read inputs
will be at a fixed interval. (Refer to (d) and (e) in the figure below.)
• The Sync0, the timing to read inputs and the maximum NX bus I/O refresh cycle of the Slave Terminals are automatically calculated by the Sysmac Studio according to the input refresh cycle of the NX
Units in the Slave Terminals when the Slave Terminals are configured and set up.*2
• In order to read input values correctly, you must determine the inputs before the total of the ON/OFF
response time and input filter time from the timing to read inputs for each NX Unit. (Refer to (f) in the
figure below.)
*1. If multiple Slave Terminals are present on the same EtherCAT network, refer to the NX-series EtherCAT Coupler Unit User's Manual (Cat. No. W519-E1-05 or later) for the range of available Slave Terminals that operate
at the same timing.
*2. If an EtherCAT Slave Terminal is connected to the built-in EtherCAT port on the NX-series CPU Unit, the NX
bus refresh cycle is automatically calculated by Sysmac Studio for each periodic task. This applies to the primary periodic task and priority-5 periodic task.

Input Refreshing with Input Changed Time
With this I/O refreshing method, the Input Units record the DC times when the inputs changed. The DC
times are asynchronous to the NX bus refresh cycles.
The EtherCAT Coupler Unit cyclically reads both the input values and the DC times when the inputs
changed on the NX bus refresh cycles.
In the descriptions below, the DC time when the input changed is called the input changed time.
You can use the Input Units that support input refreshing with input changed time with the Output Units
that support output refreshing with specified time stamp to control an output at a fixed interval after a
sensor input changes.
Description of Operation
• This method is used when you connect the NX Units that support input refreshing with input changed
time to the EtherCAT Coupler Unit, that is connected to the built-in EtherCAT port on the
NJ/NX-series CPU Unit.
• The NX Units that support input refreshing with input changed time record the DC times when an
input changes for each input bit. The DC times that the Units record are the DC times for which the
status changes of the input terminals passed the ON/OFF response time and reached the internal circuits.
• The EtherCAT Coupler Unit reads the input values and the input changed times from the NX Units at
I/O refreshing. The input values that the EtherCAT Coupler Unit read are not the values at the point
when the input change times were recorded, but the values at I/O refreshing.
• All Digital Input Units that operate with input refreshing with input changed times in the Slave Terminal read the input changed times at the same time at a fixed interval based on Sync0. (Refer to (a) in
the figure below.)*1
• The timing of reading input changed times is the same as the timing at which all Digital Input Units
and Analog Input Units that operate with synchronous input refreshing in the Slave Terminal read
their inputs.
• The timing of reading input values is at I/O refreshing, which is different from the timing of reading
input changed times.
• The EtherCAT Coupler Unit reads the input changed times and input values at immediate I/O refreshing after the input changed times are read. (Refer to (b) in the figure below.)
• The interval of I/O refreshing varies with the processing conditions of the EtherCAT Coupler Unit or
the EtherCAT master. (Refer to (c) in the figure below.) The timing of reading input changed times will
be at a fixed interval. (Refer to (d) and (e) in the figure below.)
• Sync0, the timing of reading input changed times, and the maximum NX bus I/O refresh cycle for
multiple Slave Terminals are automatically calculated by the Sysmac Studio according to the input
refresh cycles of the NX Units in the Slave Terminals when the Slave Terminals are configured and
set up.*2
*1. If multiple Slave Terminals are present on the same EtherCAT network, refer to the NX-series EtherCAT Coupler Unit User's Manual (Cat. No. W519-E1-05 or later) for the range of available Slave Terminals that operate
at the same timing.
*2. If an EtherCAT Slave Terminal is connected to the built-in EtherCAT port on the NX-series CPU Unit, the NX
bus refresh cycle is automatically calculated by Sysmac Studio for each periodic task. This applies to the primary periodic task and priority-5 periodic task.

5 I/O Refreshing
Description of Operation
• This method is used when you connect the NX Units that support output refreshing with specified
time stamp to the EtherCAT Coupler Unit, that is connected to the built-in EtherCAT port on the
NJ/NX-series CPU Unit.
• You can specify the specified time and the output set value for each output bit. You can also set the
same specified time for multiple output bits.
• The EtherCAT Coupler Unit sets the output set values and the specified times to the NX Units and
acquires the output status at I/O refreshing. (Refer to (a) in the figure below.)
• The output status is used when you determine that the output was refreshed normally at the specified
time. Refer to 5-2-10 An Example of Turning ON Outputs at Specific Times After the Sensor Inputs
Change on page 5-30 for an example of determining that the output was refreshed.
• The NX Units turn ON the output status when the specified times are set.
• The NX Units refresh outputs and turn OFF the output status at the specified times. The values of
outputs that the NX Units refresh are the output set values at the specified times. (Refer to (b) in the
figure below.)
• The ON/OFF response time is needed from the specified time until setting the output status of external terminals on the NX Units.
• If the next specified time is set before the current specified time is reached, the NX Units overwrite
the current specified time to the next specified time. The current specified time is ignored.
• If the value of the specified time is 0, the output is refreshed immediately. At this time, the Output
Units refresh outputs according to the output set values.
• When the specified time is set to the NX Units, if the specified time is a previous DC time, a Previous
Time Specified event (event code: 7001000 hex) occurs.
• To make the specified time as a future DC time when it is set to the NX Units, set the specified time to
satisfy both the following conditions.
a) A future DC time at least twice the task period from the previous value of the Time Stamp of Synchronous Output (Refer to (c) in the figure below.)
b) A future DC time at least three times the task period from the input changed time read from the
Input Units that support input refreshing with input changed time (Refer to (d) in the figure below.)
• The Time Stamp of Synchronous Output is one of I/O data in the EtherCAT Coupler Unit, and contains the DC time of synchronous outputs from the NX Unit. By default, it is not assigned to the I/O
entry mapping, so edit the settings and assign it to the I/O entry mapping. The added I/O data is
0x200A: 02 (Time Stamp of Synchronous Output).

Set the following items.
 Adding to the NX Unit Configuration
Enable the distributed clock in the EtherCAT slave parameters on the EtherCAT Coupler Unit that is
added to the EtherCAT network configuration and add the NX Units that support output refreshing
with specified time stamp to the NX Unit configuration.
 Setting the Task Period
Set the task period of the primary periodic task or the task period of the priority-5 periodic task when
the built-in EtherCAT port on the NX-series CPU Unit is used.
Set the task period of the primary periodic task when the built-in EtherCAT port on the NJ-series
CPU Unit is used.
Refer to the NX-series EtherCAT Coupler Unit User's Manual (Cat. No. W519-E1-05 or later) for setting of the task period.
Additional Information
Do not disable the distributed clock. If it is disabled, the output refreshing with specified time
stamp will not operate correctly. However, an error does not occur even if it is disabled.
If the distributed clock is disabled, outputs are not refreshed regardless of the output set values
and values of the specified time.

Allocable I/O Data
This section describes the allocable I/O data in the Digital Input Unit.
An I/O entry mapping is assigned to the I/O allocation settings for the Digital Input Unit.
A specific I/O entry is assigned to the I/O entry mapping for each NX Unit model. These allocations are
fixed, so you cannot add others or change them.
An I/O entry means the I/O data described in this section. An I/O entry mapping means a collection of
I/O entries.
To assign the I/O allocation information of the EtherCAT Slave Terminal to an NJ/NX-series CPU Unit,
use the I/O ports for the allocated I/O data.
Do not use the I/O ports for the EtherNet/IP Slave Terminal. Refer to the NX-series EtherNet/IP Coupler
Unit User's Manual (Cat. No. W536) for details on how to use the I/O data with EtherNet/IP Coupler
Units.

Data exchange between the NX Units and EtherCAT Coupler
Unit are performed cyclically on the NX bus refresh cycles.
With this I/O refreshing method, the Input Units record the DC
times when inputs changed.
This function eliminates the chattering or the noises from input
signals. It is used to prevent the error reading due to the
noises. You can set the filter time constant.

Description
With this I/O refreshing method, the refresh cycle of the NX
bus and the I/O refresh cycles of the NX Units are asynchronous.
With this I/O refreshing method, the timing to read inputs or to
refresh outputs is synchronous on a fixed interval between
more than one NX Unit on more than one Slave Terminal.

Input Filter
Purpose
This function prevents data changes and unstable data caused by changes of input data and unstable
status of input bits due to chattering and noise.
You can also use this function to make the settings to easily read the pulses that ON time is short.
Details on the Function
 If Input Filter Mode Setting is Enable ON Filter and OFF Filter
Read the inputs at a 1/4 interval of the input filter time. When all inputs are ON or OFF, the input values turn ON or OFF.
This prevents data changes and unstable data.
This function works for all inputs of the NX Units at the same time.

Specifications of I/O Data
This section describes I/O data for the Digital Output Units.
7-2-1
Allocable I/O Data
This section describes the allocable I/O data in the Digital Output Unit.
An I/O entry mapping is assigned to the I/O allocation settings for the Digital Output Unit except the Unit
that supports output refreshing with specified time stamp.
In the Unit that supports output refreshing with specified time stamp, one I/O entry mapping for input
and one I/O entry mapping for output are assigned.
A specific I/O entry is assigned to the I/O entry mapping for each NX Unit model. These allocations are
fixed, so you cannot add others or change them.
To assign the I/O allocation information of the EtherCAT Slave Terminal to an NJ/NX-series CPU Unit,
use the I/O ports for the allocated I/O data.
Do not use the I/O ports for the EtherNet/IP Slave Terminal. Refer to the NX-series EtherNet/IP Coupler
Unit User's Manual (Cat. No. W536) for details on how to use the I/O data with EtherNet/IP Coupler
Units.

Load Short-circuit Protection
Purpose
This function is used to protect the output circuits of the Digital Output Units when an external connection load short-circuit occurs.
Details on the Function
As shown in the figure below, normally when the output bit (OUT) turns ON, the transistor turns ON and
then output current (Iout) will flow.
The transistor of the Transistor Output Units generates heat when output current (Iout) flows.

7-4-3 Load Short-circuit Protection
If an overload or short-circuit occurs, causing the output current (lout) to exceed the maximum value of
load current as shown in the figure below and the junction temperature (Tj) of the transistor to reach the
thermal shutdown temperature (Tstd) in which a load short-circuit protection operates, the output will
turn OFF to protect the transistor from being damaged.
7 Digital Output Units
 Restrictions on Use
The load short-circuit protection function only protects internal circuits for a short period.
As shown in the figure above, the load short-circuit protection of this NX Unit is automatically
released when the Tj equals to Tr.
Therefore, unless the cause of short-circuit is removed, ON/OFF operations are repeated in the output.
If the short-circuit is not corrected, output elements deteriorate. If any external load is short-circuited,
immediately turn OFF the applicable output and remove the cause of the short-circuit.

Push-pull Output
The Digital Output Units with the ON/OFF response time of 1 μs or less use a push-pull output to
increase the speed of the output ON/OFF response.
For this type of the Output Units, use the single load power supply for the I/O power and connected
external devices.
If multiple power supplies are used, the current may flow into the output bits via the diodes built in the
I/O circuit and cause the Output Units to malfunction.

Precautions when Using the Relay
Output Units
This section describes precautions when using the Relay Output Units.
Relay Service Life
The service life of Relay Output Units depends on the type of load, contact current and ambient temperature.
Use the following diagrams to calculate the relay service life based on the operating conditions, and
replace the NX Unit before the end of its service life.

Precautions for Correct Use
The above chart shows the life characteristics for individual relays. Do not exceed the specifications of the Relay Output Units. If a switching capacity exceeding the specifications is used,
the reliability and life expectancy of other parts will be reduced and the NX Unit may malfunction.
7 - 22
NX-series Digital I/O Unit User’s Manual (W521)
7 Digital Output Units
Inductive Load
The life of the Relay varies with the load inductance.
If any inductive load is used, we recommend that you use a contact protection circuit. (Contact Protection Circuit on page 7-23).
Be sure to connect a contact protection circuit in parallel with every DC inductive load that is connected
to the Contact Output Unit because the usage of a contact protection circuit has a significant effect on
the service life of the contact.
Contact protection circuits are used with the Contact Output Unit in order to prolong the life of each
relay mounted to the Contact Output Unit, prevent noise, and reduce the generation of carbide and
nitrate deposits caused by arcs. However, if contact protection circuits are used incorrectly, they can
reduce relay service life. Using a contact protection circuit can also cause a delay in the resetting time
(shut-off time).
Contact protection circuit examples are listed in the following table.
Current

Yes Yes If the load is a relay or
solenoid, there is a delay
in the resetting time.

method
If the power supply voltage is 24 or 48 V, connect the contact
protection circuit in parallel with the load. If the
supply voltage is 100 to
200 V, connect the contact protection circuit
between the contacts.
Required element
The capacitance of the capacitor should be approx. 1 to 0.5
μF per contact current of 1 A
and resistance of the resistor
should be approx. 0.5 to 1 Ω
per contact voltage of 1 V.
C: The capacitance of the
capacitor should be approx. 0.5
to 1 μF per contact current of 1
A.
R: The resistance of the resistor should be approx. 0.5 to 1 Ω
per contact voltage of 1 V.
These values, however, vary
depending on the load and the
characteristics of the relay.
Decide these values from
experiments, and take into consideration that the capacitance
suppresses spark discharge
when the contacts are separated and the resistance
restricts the current that flows
into the load when the circuit is
closed again.
The dielectric strength of the
capacitor must be 200 to 300 V.
If the circuit is an AC circuit,
use a capacitor with no polarity.

Yes The diode connected in

The delay in resetting
time caused by this
method is longer than
that caused by the CR
method.
Yes Yes The varistor method prevents the imposition of
high voltage between the
contacts by using the
constant voltage characteristic of the varistor.
There is a delay in the
resetting time.
Required element
The reversed dielectric strength
value of the diode must be at
least 10 times as large as the
circuit voltage value. The forward current of the diode must
be the same as or larger than
the load current.
The reversed dielectric strength
value of the diode may be two
to three times larger than the
power supply voltage if the contact protection circuit is applied
to electronic circuits with low
circuit voltages.
-
If the power supply voltage is 24 to 48 V, insert
the varistor in parallel
with the load. If the supply voltage is 100 to 200
V, insert the varistor
between the contacts.

7-6 Precautions when Using the Relay Output Units
This contact protection circuit is very effective for preventing spark discharge when the circuit is
opened. However, when the contacts are closed, the contacts may be welded due to the current charged in the capacitor. DC inductive loads can be more difficult to switch than resistive
loads. If an appropriate contact protection circuit is used, however, DC inductive loads are as
easy to switch as resistive loads.

 Conformance to EC Directives
The NX-series I/O Units conform to the Common Emission Standards (EN 61131-2) of the EMC
Directives. However, when incorporating in the system, noise generated by relay output switching
may not satisfy these Standards.
In such a case, appropriate countermeasures must be provided externally to the Output Unit, such
as by connecting a contact protection circuit. Countermeasures taken to satisfy the standards vary
depending on the devices on the load side, wiring, configuration of machines, etc.
 Countermeasures
• Countermeasures are not required: the switching frequency of the entire system incorporating the
Output Unit is less than 5 times per minute
• Countermeasures are required: the switching frequency of the entire system incorporating the
Output Unit is more than 5 times per minute
Refer to EN 61131-2 for details.
 Countermeasure Example
The following measures must be taken.
Use the measures to reduce the noises that are occurred.
• When switching an inductive load, connect a contact protection circuit in parallel with the load or
contact. (Refer to Inductive Load on page 7-23.)
• When switching a load with a high inrush current such as an incandescent lamp, use either of the
following methods to reduce the inrush current.
<Method 1. Draw about 1/3 of the current consumed by the load.>
