• The NS-AL002 is connected directly to the serial port of the PT and power is supplied
from pin 6 of the port.
• When there are multiple serial ports and Ethernet Units for a single host, each port can
be used to communicate with separate PTs. This type of communications method,
however, will reduce the communications performance at the host.

Press the touch switches with a pressure of 30 N max.
Do not press the touch switches when the backlight is not lit or when there is no display.
Check system safety before pressing the touch switches.
Inputs may not be recognized if the touch switches are pressed in rapid succession. Check
that one input operation has finished before performing the next one.
Reference
• Pressing Three Switches Simultaneously
When the positions of multiple touch switches are set as shown in the example and
three switches are pressed simultaneously, the touch switches will malfunction due to
structural characteristics.
Position the touch switches carefully. In the example shown below, switches have
been created in positions A and B, and at points C and D, where the vertical and horizontal lines through A and B intersect.
A
C
• If touch switches A, B, and C are turned ON
simultaneously, switch D may also turn ON
due to the structure of the touch panel.
• In the same way, if touch switches A, B,
and D are turned ON simultaneously, switch
C may also turn ON.

diagram.
Insert the catch on each bracket into the square hole on the PT, and secure the PT to the
panel by tightening the screws with a Phillips screwdriver while gently pulling in the PT.
Note
3-1-4
· Do not allow metal particles to enter the PT while work is being performed on the panel.
· The allowable thickness of the panel for mounting is between 1.6 and 4.8 mm.
Secure the mounting bracket with a uniform tightening torque of between 0.5 and 0.6 N×m
to keep the PT waterproof and dustproof.
The front sheet may become distorted if the tightening torque is more than the specified

IP Address Configuration
The IP address is comprised of 32 bits of binary data, consisting of the net ID and host ID.
The net ID is the address that identifies the network, and the host ID is the ID that identifies
the host (node).
The IP address is divided into class A, B, and C. Select the address system from among the
classes according to the network configuration.
Class A
Host ID (24 bits)
Net ID (7 bits)
Class B
Net ID (14 bits)
Class C
Net ID (21 bits)
Host ID (16 bits)
Host ID (8 bits)
The number of networks and hosts that can be identified depends on the class used.

2 - 2 max. (16,777,214 max.)
16
2 - 2 max. (65,534 max.)
8
2 - 2 max. (254 max.)
The IP address is a 32-bit value divided into four 8-bit fields. Each octet is expressed as a
decimal and is separated by a period.
Example: 10000010 00111010 00010001 00100000 ® 130.58.17.32
Reference
· Set the same net ID for all nodes in the same network.
· The net ID of the IP address is the value that identifies the Ethernet network (IP network segment). The net ID is not the same as the network address used for FINS
communications.
· The IP network segment is the logical network unit that is configured by the nodes
that have the same net ID.
5-4
5-1 Connecting to Host Via Ethernet
IP Address Allocation
The IP addresses are allocated so that they are unique for each node in the network (or between two or more networks). If two or more nodes are allocated the same IP address, the
remote nodes with the same IP address will also malfunction.
IP (Internet Protocol) is a communications protocol that conforms to international standards.
Therefore, to connect to the Internet, always obtain IP addresses that have been allocated by
a public organization (i.e., the NIC in the country of use, such as the JPNIC in Japan). Using
IP addresses that are not recognized by the NIC (JPNIC) to connect to the Internet could
have unforeseen social consequences, such as causing the networks of another organizations to malfunction unexpectedly.
Local IP Address
The local IP address indicates the IP address of the Ethernet Unit that is used to set the settings.
The following IP address settings are not possible.
Net ID with all bits set to 0 or 1.
Host ID with all bits set to 0 or 1.
Subnet ID with all bits set to 1.
IP addresses that begin with 127 (7F Hex) (e.g., 127.35.21.16).
Subnet Mask
When more than one node is connected to the network, network operation and management
can be difficult. Therefore, for convenience, configure the system by dividing a single network
into multiple sub-networks. The system operates internally as multiple networks, but externally appears as a single network.
To operate a system in this way, divide the host ID field of the IP address into a subnet ID
field and a host ID field.
The subnet ID field is identified by the information in the subnet mask. The subnet mask is a
bit mask in which the net ID and subnet ID fields are 1 and the host ID field is 0.
Example: 11111111 11111111 11111111 00000000 ® FFFFFF00
The subnet mask must have a value that is common to all nodes on the same sub-network.
Setting the subnet mask is not required if sub-networks are not used. The system recognizes
subnet masks without a subnet ID field (i.e., subnet masks with net ID and host ID fields
only).

Address Conversion (when Using FINS Communications Service Only)
When using the FINS communications service, nodes must be specified following the FINS
addressing system. Data that is transmitted on the Ethernet network using FINS communications, however, must follow the IP address format. Address conversion changes the FINS address to an IP address.

To 153.211.32.114
There are three methods for converting addresses, as follows:
· Automatic generation method (default address conversion)
· IP address table method
· IP table + automatic generation method
All of these address conversion methods are performed from the system settings using the
Support Software (CX-Programmer, SYSMAC-CPT, SYSMAC Support Software, or CV Port
Software Ver.2 or later). The details for each method are explained below. Refer to the SYSMAC CS/CJ Series Ethernet Unit Operation Manual (W343) and the SYSMAC CVM1/CV Series Ethernet Unit Operation Manual (W242) for details on setting methods.
Automatic Generation Method
The automatic generation method uses the FINS node number without modification as the
host ID of the IP address. The net ID of the local IP address is used as the net ID.
Automatic generation uses the following type of remote IP address configured from the local
IP address, subnet mask, and remote node number (FINS node number).
Remote IP address = (Local IP Address AND subnet mask)
OR remote node number
· Automatic Generation Characteristics
Automatic generation has the advantage of easily understandable handling of FINS addresses and IP addresses. This method, however, does have the following limitations.
1. This method is applicable for addresses with the same net ID only.
2. The remote host ID is restricted to the range of FINS node numbers (1 to 126).
3. The Ethernet Unit’s host ID and node number must be set to the same value.
Automatic generation is set as the default address conversion method, so it does not
need to be set from the CX-Programmer.
5-6
5-1 Connecting to Host Via Ethernet
IP Address Table Method
Whereas the automatic generation method obtains the IP address from the FINS node number, the IP address table method converts the FINS node number to the IP address based on
a preset conversion table (IP address table).
The IP address table is configured from the system settings using Support Software (CXProgrammer, SYSMAC-CPT, SYSMAC Support Software, or CV Support Software Ver.2 or
later). Refer to the SYSMAC CS/CJ Series Ethernet Unit Operation Manual (W343) and
SYSMAC CVM1/CV Series Ethernet Unit Operation Manual (W242) for details on setting
methods.
Nodes that have different net IDs for different segments can also be registered.

· IP Address Table Method Characteristics
The IP address table method simply prepares a conversion table, offering the advantage of
allowing the correspondence between FINS node numbers and IP addresses to be created
freely.
This method is, however, subject to restrictions. The IP address table allows registration of up
to 32 corresponding addresses only, so no more than 32 nodes, including the local node, can
be registered. If there is no correspondence, the remote FINS node number is not recognized.
IP Table + Automatic Generation Method
This method combines automatic generation and the IP address table method.
First refer to the IP address table, and if the required FINS address is included in the table,
read the corresponding IP address. If the required FINS address is not included, calculate the
IP address using the automatic generation method.

Setting Routing Tables
Routing tables define the communications path between the local node and the network
containing the destination node. Routing tables are required to perform network communications. Routing tables consist of local network tables and remote network tables.
Local Network Tables

What Is a Controller Link Network?
A Controller Link Network is an FA Network that can send and receive large data packets
flexibly and easily among the OMRON C200HX/HG/HE PLC Programmable Terminal (PTs),
SYSMAC CS-series PLCs, CJ-series PLCs, CQM1H-series PLCs, C200HX/HG/HE PLCs,
CVM1/CV-series PLCs, IBM PC/AT or compatible computers, and NS-series PTs. The Controller Link supports data links that enable data sharing and a message service that enables
sending data and receiving data when required. Data link areas can be freely set to create a
flexible data link system and effectively use data areas.
The network is connected using shielded twisted-pair cable or optical fiber cable. In addition,
the Controller Link Network can transfer large quantities of data at high speed, so that it is
possible to construct a wide-area network easily that supports from low-level systems to high.
For details on data links and message service, refer to the Controller Link Support Board Operation Manual (W307), Controller Link Support Board for PCI Bus Operation Manual (W383),
and the Controller Link Unit Operation Manual (W309).
Note: An optical fiber cable is not available for NS-series PTs.

Data Links
This section outlines data links and the method of setting data link tables when using data
links. For details, refer to the Controller Link Support Board Operation Manual (W307), Controller Link Unit Operation Manual (W309), and the Controller Link Support Board for PCI Bus
Operation Manual (W383).
What Are Data Links?
Data links automatically exchange preset data between nodes (i.e., between PLCs, between
a PLC and an IBM PC/AT or compatible computer, or between a PLC and an NS-series PT).
Data links can be freely created for CS-series PLCs, C200HX/HG/HE PLCs, CVM1, CVseries PLCs, CJ-series PLCs, CQM1H-series PLCs, and NS-series PTs.
Two data link areas, area 1 and area 2, can be set for each node. Data links can be set in either of the following ways.
· Data link areas can be set by inputting data link tables through the Controller Link Support
Software. Data link tables are created to define the data links. These tables enable free allocation of data link areas.
· Data links can be set automatically from a Programming Device. With automatically set data
links, all link areas are the same size.
Automatic setting and manual setting cannot be used together in the same network.
The following rules apply to these methods of setting data links.
1. Data links are enables concurrently for area 1 and area 2.
2. Separate settings (data link start words and send area size) are made in area 1 and area
2. The sequences of send and receive words are the same in area 1 and area 2.
3. Not all nodes must participate in the data links.
Example 1: The order of send
and receive nodes is free.

Setting Data Link Tables
To perform data links, data link tables are required. Set data link tables by following the steps
below.
1. Set data link tables using the CX-Server (Network Setting Tool).
Data link tables are created to define data links. These tables must be set for each node
participating in data links. Refer to the manual for CX-Server (W362) for the method of
setting.
The following table shows the items and setting range for data link tables in the Controller
Link Support Board mounted on the PT.

Use CIO for $B and D for $W in the CX-Server.
The same area cannot be set for both area 1 and area 2. Set different areas.
· Remote nodes: 0 to the number of source words
Set the number of words to be received
· Local nodes:
0 to 1000
Set the number of words to be transmitted
The total number of words in area 1 and area 2 in each node must not exceed 1,000.
The number of words in both area 1 and area 2 in each node must not be set to 0.
· Remote nodes: 0 to one less than number of source words
Set offset for data to be received
· Local nodes:
Cannot be set.
This setting is not required if an offset is not used.
The following examples show how to change CIO and D addresses to $B and $W addresses.
1. Changing to $B addresses:
$B address = Word in CIO address (0 to 2047) ´ 16 + Bit in CIO address (00 to 15)
Example: If the CIO address is 00100.04, $B address = 100 ´ 16 + 4 = $B1604.
Word Bit
2. Changing to $W addresses:
$W address = D address (0 to 24575)
Example: If the D address is D00100, $W address = $W100.
· The total number of words set in area 1 and area 2 must not exceed 32,000.
· Always delete the data link tables if the node does not participate in data links.
Save the data link tables after setting the above items.

5-2 Connecting to the Host Using Controller Link
2. Set data link tables for the PT side on the NS-Designer
The two setting methods below can be used. Use the appropriate method for the application.
1) Specifying data link tables with NS-Designer:
If the data link tables are set from the NS-Designer, then they cannot be changed via
a network. Even if they are temporarily changed from the CX-Server or Controller Link
Support Software, they will return to the tables set from the NS-Designer the next time
the PT is started. To change the data link tables when they have been set from the
NS-Designer, it is necessary to retransfer the project or setting file to the PT.
Select Setting - System Setting on the NS-Designer, click the Controller Link Tab,
and specify the data link tables created in step 1. Refer to Section 7 System Settings
in the NS-Designer Operation Manual, for specifying the data link table file.
2) Setting data link tables across a network:
To do so, transfer the data link tables in the Controller Link Interface Unit from the CXServer or Controller Link Support Software, and do not specify data link tables from
the NS-Designer. If data link tables are set via a network, then they can later be
changed via a network as required. For details on the transfer method, refer to the
CX-Net Operation Manual (W361) and the Controller Link Support Software Operation
Manual (W369).
3. Transfer the project created on NS-Designer to the PT.
Starting and Stopping Data Links
The PT starts and stops data links according to the status of the data links when participating
in the network. If the data links are started when entering the network, the PT will start its
data links. If network has stopped data links, the PT will not start data links. The PT cannot
control starting/stopping data links independently. Control starting/stopping data links on the
Controller Link network using the startup node or CX-Server.
Note
· The data link mode (manual setting or automatic setting) and data link method are determined according to the data link setting in the startup node. In the startup node, set the
data link tables if manual settings are being used and data link automatic setting parameters if automatic settings are being used. If the settings are incorrect, the data links will not
start.
Caution
· Check the following items before starting data links.
1. Manually Set Data Links
Check the data link tables in each node participating in
the data link to see that they are correct. Be sure that
data link tables are deleted from nodes that are not participating in the data links.
2. Automatically Set data Links
Be sure that the correct DM parameters have been set
in the data link startup node.
If incorrect data link tables or parameters are set, injury may
result due to unexpected operation of the system.
· Even if the correct data link tables or parameters have been
set, do not start or stop data links before verifying that there
will be no adverse influence on the system.

Perform maintenance operations to maintain the PT in optimum condition.
Do not attempt to take the Unit apart and do not
touch any internal parts while the power is being
supplied. Doing either of these may result in electrical shock.
@ Backing up Project Data
Always back up project data and store it in a safe place when the PT malfunctions and needs
to be sent out for repair, or when replacing the Unit.
@ Spare Units
Prepare a spare PT to allow quick recovery of the system at such times as when the PT
malfunctions, or the service life of the backlight has expired causing poor screen visibility.
@ Backlight
The backlight must be replaced when the brightness of the display backlight dims and the
display becomes difficult to see. The backlight cannot be replaced by the user.
Contact your nearest OMRON representative.
• Backlight Replacement Guidelines
Replace the backlight according to the following guidelines under normal conditions.
After 50,000 hours of use at room temperature and humidity.
The service life of the backlight will be especially shortened if used in a low-temperature environment. Replace the backlight when the brightness dims and the display becomes difficult to
see.
7-1-1
Replacing the Battery
Use a lithium battery to back up data other than screen data, such as calendar, clock, and log
data.
The battery service life is approximately five years at 25°C. The service life will be shortened
if the battery is used at higher temperatures. Replace the battery periodically, according to the
operating environment.
Keep a spare battery available, so that the battery can be replaced immediately when required.

7-2 Inspection and Cleaning
7-2 Inspection and Cleaning
Clean and inspect the PT periodically to maintain it in optimum condition for use.
@ Cleaning Methods
The screen visibility will be impaired if the display becomes dirty. Clean the display periodically using the following methods:
• For daily cleaning, wipe with a soft, dry cloth. Attempting to remove heavy dirt with the
cloth may scratch the front panel sheet. Use a damp cloth and wipe the surface again to
remove dirt.
• If dirt cannot be removed using a dry cloth, dampen the cloth sufficiently with a neutral
cleaning agent solution (approximately 2%), squeeze the cloth out, and then wipe the surface.
• Materials such as rubber, vinyl, or tape that are attached to the Unit will leave stains if left
for a long time. If such material is attached to the Unit, remove when cleaning.
Note
Never use benzene, thinner, or other volatile solvents, or chemical cloths to clean the PT.
@ Inspection Methods
Inspect the PT once every six to twelve months. Shorten the interval between inspections
when using the PT in extreme conditions, such as under high temperatures, high humidity, or
environments subject to large quantities of dust.

Converters
The NS-AL002 RS-232C/RS-422A Converter is connected directly to RS-232C port A or
B of the PT, and converts RS-232C communications to RS-422A/RS-485. Power is supplied from the PT through pin 6 of the RS-232C connector, so an externally connected
power supply is not required. A summary of the NS-AL002 external dimensions, mounting
and removal methods, and specifications are provided here. Refer to this information when
designing the control panel. Refer to the operation manual included with the NS-AL002 for
details.

Preparing Shield of RS-422A/485 Cables
For RS-422A/485 long-distance transmission, if both ends of the shield are grounded, a
large current may flow to the shield due to the difference in ground potential. Therefore,
ground the shields on one end of the cable only.
