the Appendix for a complete list of all products covered in this manual, along with
their full model numbers. In addition, abbreviations are used for certain Units. In
this manual, PC always means Programmable Controller; Master means Remote I/O Master Unit; and Slave means Remote I/O Slave Unit.
1-2
Link Adapters
Link Adapters are used to interconnect system devices such as host computers,
PC Link Units, Host Link Units, and Remote I/O Units, and/or to convert between
wire cable and optical fiber cable.
Using optical links between Units provides greater transmission distance and
noise resistance. In addition, Link Adapters provide inputs to bypass a Unit
which is improperly connected or which suffers a power interruption, thereby allowing other Units connected in series to continue operating normally.
Some Link Adapters can ensure that a System will not begin operating until, for
example, a particular Subsystem has started up.
There are various models of Link Adapters to perform a variety of functions. For
example, the Link Adapter generally used for connecting PC Link Systems is the
AL001, but when optical cable is used it is replaced by combinations of the
AL002-(P)E and AL004-(P)E.
Link Adapter AL002-(P)E is used to branch optical cables; the AL004-(P)E is
used to convert between optical and wire cables; and the AL005-(P)E and
AL006-(P)E are used for branching and/or converting between different types of
optical fiber cables. Link Adapter AL007-P is used exclusively in Wired Remote
I/O Systems.
Link Adapters AL002-(P)E, AL005-(P)E, and AL006-(P)E have auxiliary power
input terminals which can be connected to a battery to ensure continued operation even when the AC power supply is cut off. (See 2-5 Backup Power Supply.)
Link Adapters AL002-(P)E and AL006-(P)E have repeater input terminals. (See
2-6 Link Adapter Repeater Input.)
The following diagram illustrates how Link Adapters can be used to connect several Units in a simple configuration.

Power Supply and Cable Lengths
Power Supply
For all but AL001 Link Adapters, connect the AC hot line to the common terminal
of the Link Adapter. A fuse is internally connected to the common line.
Cable Lengths
Maximum length for RS-232C cable is 15 m. For RS-422 it is 500 m, with a maximum of 10 m for any given branch line. For RS-485 cable it is 200 m.
Maximum lengths for optical fiber cables connected to Link Adapters are determined by the type of cable and the particular model of Link Adapter employed.
Link Adapters whose model numbers are followed by “-P” can be connected to
either APF (all-plastic optical fiber) or PCF (plastic-clad optical fiber) cable.
Those without “-P” can be connected only to PCF cable. The model numbers,
cable types, and transmission distances are related as follows:
Cable
Model No. With P
Model No. Without P
APF
20 m
Not connectable
PCF
200 m
800 m
If transmission distances over 800 meters are required, it is necessary to use
AGF (crystal optical fiber) cable, which calls for the use of specific Link Adapters
(see 1-4 General Specifications). For calculating maximum length for AGF
cable, see 2-4 Crystal Optical Fiber Cable (AGF).
! Caution
2-2
Never use a Link Adapter with its terminal cover removed. Keep the cover securely attached. If the Link Adapter is installed in an office or on a desk, take extra care to avoid electrical shock.
RS-422 and RS-232C Cable
When using optical fiber or RS-422 cable, it is possible to connect several Host
Link Units to one host computer. When RS-232C cable is used, however, the
connection must either be on a one-to-one basis or a Link Adapter must be used
to convert to optical or RS-422 cable. As described below, wiring will vary depending on whether a Host Link Unit is connected directly to a host computer or
whether it is connected indirectly through a Link Adapter.
When a Host Link Unit is connected one-to-one to a host computer, with no Link
Adapter, and RS-232C cable is being used, connect the SD (send data) terminal
of the host computer to the RD (receive data) terminal of the Host Link Unit. Likewise, connect the RD terminal of the host computer to the SD terminal of the
Host Link Unit. When using RS-422 cable, the SDA and RDA terminals and the
SDB and RDB terminals should be connected in a similar way. The following diagram illustrates the proper connections when using RS-232C cable.

Wiring RS-232C and RS-422 Cable Connectors
Cable Preparation
Prepare cables as follows before soldering:
1, 2, 3...
1. Cut the cable to the required length.
2. Thread the end of the cable through a boot at least 50 mm up the cable.
3. Being careful not to damage the braiding underneath, use a razor blade to
cut away 25 mm of sheath for an RS-442 cable or 40 mm for an RS-232C
cable.
4. Using scissors, cut away all but 10 mm of the exposed braiding.
5. Using wire strippers, remove the covering from the last 5 mm of all wires.
6. Move the boot to the cut edge of the sheath and fold the braiding back over
the end of it.
7. Wrap aluminum foil tape 1 1/2 turns over the top of the braiding on top of the
boot.

Optical Fiber Cable (APF/PCF)
Although the special characteristics of optical fiber call for care in connecting optical devices, laying optical fiber cables basically does not differ from laying wire
cables. All OMRON PCF and the PF10l APF (length: 1 m) cables come with connectors attached. Connectors for all other APF cables must be assembled by the
customer. Note the following precautions when handling optical fiber cables:
1, 2, 3...
8
1. Always turn the power off to the Link Adapter when connecting or disconnecting an optical fiber cable.
2. Always hold the connector when disconnecting an optical fiber cable; never
pull on the cable.
3. APF and PCF connectors are designed to be inserted only in one direction;
do not try to force them in the wrong way.
4. Insert APF and PCF connectors until they lock into position.
5. Always place the protective caps on unused Link Adapter modules.
6. If dirty, clean connectors gently with a tissue or sanitary cotton, using ethyl
alcohol if necessary. Do not use any solvent other than ethyl alcohol.

excessive shock or strain.

Crystal Optical Fiber Cable (AGF)
Link Adapters AL005-(P)E and AL006-(P)E can be connected with crystal optical fiber cable in accordance with the following specifications:
Item
Specifications
Conforming optical fiber
Graded index 50/125
Applicable wavelength
800-900 nm
Transmit/receive differential
13 dB (min)
The transmission distance between Link Adapters AL005-(P)E and AL006-(P)E
is basically determined by the difference between the transmitting and receiving
levels of the Link Adapters and by the transmission loss over the crystal optical
fiber cable. It is also affected, however, by the number of connecting points and
the method of connection, as well as by the particular type of cable which is
used. Use the calculation method shown below to determine whether a given
cable length will fall within tolerable limits.
9
Section
Backup Power Supply
2-5
When total transmission loss from the system is subtracted from the transmit/receive differential of the Link Adapters, the margin must be at least 4 dB. To determine total transmission loss, first calculate the loss over the cable by multiplying
the loss/km by the total length of the cable. Then calculate the loss at the connections by multiplying the loss/connection by the number of connections. Finally, add the cable loss and the connector loss. Subtract this figure, the total transmission loss, from the transmit/receive differential. If the difference is greater
than 4 dB, then the cable length is acceptable.
Example 1
Distance: 2.5 km; Connecting points: 4; Connecting method: permanent
When this total transmission loss of 7.9 dB is subtracted from the 13 dB transmit/
receive differential of the Link Adapters, it leaves a margin of 5.1 dB. The 13 dB
includes all loss at the Link Adapter connectors.
Example 2
Distance: 2 km; Connecting points: 3; Connecting method: connectors
When this total transmission loss of 8.1 dB is subtracted from the 13 dB transmit/
receive differential of the Link Adapters, it leaves a margin of 4.9 dB, safely
above the minimum margin of 4 dB.
2-5
Backup Power Supply
Link Adapters which depend on a power supply (i.e., all except the AL001) are
unable to transmit signals when power is cut off. Link Adapters AL002-(P)E,
AL005-(P)E, and AL006-(P)E, however, have auxiliary power input terminals
which can be connected to a battery to ensure continued operation even when
the AC power supply is cut off.
Using the Auxiliary
Power Input Terminal
10
Only the three Link Adapters listed above have this terminal. They can operate
on a low voltage (12-24 VAC/DC) power supply in place of their normal power
supply of 100/200 VAC. When it is necessary to have a backup power supply,
connect a 12V battery to this terminal. If the battery is left unused for a long period it will discharge. It must either be periodically charged or connected to a floating charging device. To avoid overcharging, set the output voltage at 13V. Do not
use a 24V battery.
Backup Power Supply
Section
2-5
The following diagram illustrates a situation in which a 12V battery is used as a
backup power supply, connected to the Link Adapter in Plant B. If there were no
backup power supply in this case, then a power failure in Plant B would cut off
signal transmission between Plant A and Plant C. By connecting the backup battery in Plant B this is avoided, and continued transmission is assured.

Link Adapter Repeater Input
Link Adapters AL002-(P)E and AL006-(P)E have repeater input terminals. They
are used when it is necessary to be sure that power has already been turned on
in a system connected to a branch line of the Link Adapter before signals are
transmitted along the main line. They should be kept connected (ON) when not
needed. When they are connected across, signals are relayed along the Link
Adapter’s main line. Once main line transmission has started, signals will continue to be relayed even if the repeater input terminals are opened (OFF).

Connect so that the repeater input sill be ON when
power is turned on in the Unit connected to the
branch line (in this case a Remote I/O Slave).
If the repeater input is connected across directly (not used) in the above example, control system operation will begin when the Master detects the terminator,
even if power to the branch system is off. In other words, the branch system is
ignored. The repeater input is used to prevent this from happening. When the
repeater input is connected as shown above, then the Link Adapter’s main line
will not transmit data as long as power is not turned on in the branch system,
thereby preventing the entire system from starting. Once the branch system is
operating normally, however, signals will continue to be transmitted along the
main line even if the repeater input turns OFF.

As shown in Example 3, more than one Optical Host Link Unit can be connected
in series using optical fiber cables. However, if any failure (power failure, disconnection, etc.) occurs in one of the Units, all the subsequent Host Link Units will
also cease to operate. This can be prevented by using Link Adapters such as the
AL002-(P)E as shown below. These Link Adapters bypass any malfunctioning
Host Link Unit, thereby allowing the rest of the system to operate normally. In
other words, even if a power failure occurs in a Host Link Unit connected to a
branch line of a Link Adapter, signals are still transmitted to the other Host Link
Units.

reduce noise interference, a pair of AL007-P Link Adapters can be used to insert
an optical link between any two Remote I/O Units/Remote Terminals. The following example shows two Wired Remote I/O Units connected by optical fiber cable

The Link Adapters must always be used in pairs, as they convert between wire
and optical signals, thereby allowing optical transmission between Units which
cannot themselves be connected directly to optical fiber cable. The entire Subsystem, from Master to terminator, must be connected in series, with no branching. Up to 8 Link Adapters (4 pairs) can be used for each Master. The following
diagram illustrates an acceptable configuration for a Wired Remote Master Subsystem, using the maximum of 8 Link Adapters for one Master. Note that all Units
are connected in series and all Link Adapters are used in pairs.
