Precautions for Safe Use

1. When unpacking the Units, check carefully for any external scratches or other damage.

Also, shake the Units gently and check for any abnormal sound.

2. The PT must be installed in a control panel.

3. The mounting panel must be between 1.6 and 4.8 mm thick. Tighten the Mounting

Brackets evenly to a torque of between 0.5 and 0.6 N

⋅m to maintain water and dust resistance. Make sure the panel is not dirty or warped and that it is strong enough to hold the Units.

4. Do not let metal particles enter the Units when preparing the panel.

5. Do not connect an AC power supply to the DC power input terminals.

6. Use a DC power supply with minimal voltage fluctuation that provides a stable output even if the power supply input is interrupted for 10 ms. The DC power supply must also have reinforced or double insulation.

Rated power supply voltage: 24 VDC (Allowable range: 20.4 to 27.6 VDC)

Capacity: NS15: 45 W min.

NS12, NS10, or NS8: 25 W min.

NS5: 15 W min.

7. Do not perform a dielectric voltage test.

8. Use a twisted-pair cable with a cross-sectional area of at least 2 mm

2 to connect to the power terminals and always use M3.5 crimp terminals. Tighten the terminal screws to a torque of 0.8 N

⋅m. Make sure the screws are properly tightened.

9. Ground the Unit correctly to prevent operational errors caused by noise.

10. Do not touch the surface of the circuit board or the components mounted on it with your bare hands. Discharge any static electricity from your body before handling the board.

11. Confirm that the current capacity of the connected device is 250 mA or less before using the 5-V power supply from pin 6 of the RS-232C connector. The 5-V output from the PT is

250 mA max. at 5 V

±5%.

12. Turn OFF the power supply before connecting or disconnecting cables.

13. Always tighten the connector screws after connecting communications cables.

14. The maximum tensile load for cables is 30 N. Do not apply loads greater than this.

15. Confirm the safety of the system before turning ON or OFF the power supply or before pressing the reset button.

16. The whole system may stop depending on how the power supply is turned ON or OFF.

Turn ON or OFF the power supply according to the specified procedure.

17. After changing the settings of the DIP switch, always turn the power supply OFF and ON or reset the PT.

18. Do not perform the following operations while the Memory Card is being accessed:

• Turning OFF the power supply to the PT

• Pressing the PT’s reset switch

• Removing the Memory Card

19. To ensure system safety, incorporate a program that periodically calls PT operation bits from the host side to check that the PT is properly operating.

20. Start actual system application only after sufficiently checking screen data, macros, and the operation of the program in the host.

21. Do not press a touch switch with a force greater than 30 N.

22. Do not operate a touch switch using a screwdriver or other tool.

23. Confirm the safety of the system before pressing a touch switch.

24. Do not press touch switches consecutively without pausing in between. If touch switches are pressed consecutively at high speed, the PT may not be able to detect the inputs.

Confirm that the PT has detected the input of a touch switch before pressing any other touch switch.

25. Do not accidentally press touch switches when the backlight is not lit or when the display does not appear. Confirm the safety of the system before pressing touch switches.

12

26. To ensure safety when using numeral input functions, set the upper and lower limits for the input value.

27. Before initializing screen data, confirm that existing data is backed up at the CX-Designer.

28. When changing the password with the system menu, do not reset or turn OFF the power supply until writing is finished. If the password is not saved successfully, the screen may not operate.

29. When using the device monitor, confirm the safety of the system before performing the following operations.

• Changing monitor data

• Changing operation modes

• Forced setting or resetting

• Changing present values or set values

30. Dispose of any battery that has been dropped on the floor or otherwise subjected to excessive shock.

31. Do not connect an USB connector to any device that is not applicable.

32. Before connecting an USB connector to a device, make sure that the device is free of damage.

33. Commercially available USB hubs and the recommended USB hub do not necessarily have the same general specifications as the PT, and may not function properly if used in environments subject to static electricity or other forms of noise. When using a USB hub, take sufficient measures to prevent static electricity and other forms of noise, or do not install the PT in an environment subject to such noise.

34. Do not perform the following operations while downloading or uploading screen data or system program. Doing so may corrupt the screen data or system program.

• Turning OFF the power supply to the PT

• Pressing the PT’s reset switch

35. When mounting the Battery, be sure to use the correct Battery and mount it correctly.

36. Do not disassemble or short-circuit the battery.

37. Dispose of the Units and batteries according to local ordinances as they apply.

38. Never use volatile solvents, such as benzene or thinners, or chemical dusters to clean the

PT.

39. Mercury is used in the backlights of all PTs except for the following PTs: NS5-SQ1/-TQ1

PTs with lot number 15Z0 or later, NS8 PTs with lot number 28X1 or later, NS10 PTs with lot number 11Y1 or later, and NS12 PTs with lot number 14Z1 or later. Do not dispose of the PT together with waste to be processed at disposal plants. Dispose of the PT according to all local laws, regulations, and ordinances.

40. The backlight in the PT cannot be replaced by the user. Contact your OMRON representative for backlight replacement.

41.

Periodically check the installation conditions in applications where the PT is subject to contact with oil or water.

42.

The NS15-TX01 @-V2 uses an analog touch panel.

Deterioration over time can cause the touch points to move. If the touch points move too far, calibrate the touch panel.

43. Never connect more than two crimp terminals to one terminal.

44. Water and oil resistance will be lost if the front sheet is torn or is peeling off. Do not use the PT if the front sheet is torn or is peeling off.

Conformance to

EC Directives

This product is EMC compliant.

Concepts

OMRON products are electronic devices that are incorporated in machines and manufacturing installations. OMRON PTs conform to the related EMC Directives (see note) so that the devices and machines into which they are built can more easily conform to EMC directives.

However, customers may use a wide variety of equipment and manufacturing installations.

Therefore the customer must check whether the Directives are satisfied for the actual system.

EMC-related performance will vary depending on the configuration, wiring, and other conditions of the equipment or control panel in which the PT is installed. The customer must, therefore, perform final checks to confirm that the overall machine or device conforms to EMC standards.

Note: Applicable EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) standards are as follows:

EMS (Electromagnetic Susceptibility): EN 61131-2

EMI (Electromagnetic Interference): EN 61131-2

(EN 61131-2 radiated emission: 10-m regulations)

Conformance to EC Directives

NS-series PTs conform to EC Directives. To ensure that the machine or device in which the

NS-series PT is used complies with EC Directives, the PT must be installed as follows:

• The NS-series PT must be installed in a control panel.

• You must use reinforced insulation or double insulation for the DC power supply and the

DC power supply must have minimal voltage fluctuations and provide a stable output even if the power supply input is interrupted for 10 ms.

• NS-series PTs complying with EC Directives also conform to the Common Emission

Standard (EN 61131-2). Radiated emission characteristics (10-m regulations) may vary depending on the configuration of the control panel used, other devices connected to the control panel, wiring, and other conditions. You must therefore confirm that the overall machine or equipment complies with EC Directives.

• This is a class A product. It may cause radio interference in residential areas, in which case the user may be required to take adequate measures to reduce interference.

1-2 Communications with

the Host

1-2-1 What is an NT Link?

An NT Link is a method for high-speed communications between an OMRON PLC and an

OMRON Programmable Terminal (PT) using a special protocol. In addition to a 1:1 NT Link, where a single PT is connected to a single PLC, NS-series PTs also support 1:N NT Links, allowing up to eight PTs to be connected to a single PLC port.

CS- and CJ-series PLCs can also be connected using high-speed 1:N NT Link communications. For details on the PLCs that support high-speed 1:N NT Link communications, refer to

Appendix 8 Standard Models

.

In the rest of this manual, "NT Link" refers to NT Link communications in general, "1:1 NT

Link" refers to an NT Link in a 1:1 configuration only, and "1:N NT Links" refers to NT Links in a 1:N configuration only. Where necessary, "normal 1:N NT Links" and "high-speed 1:N NT

Links" are used. When "1:N NT Links" is used alone, it refers to both normal and high-speed communications.

1-2-2 Ethernet

Ethernet Units in PLCs that are supported by the NS-series PTs can be used to read and write data, word, and bit information simply. The use of FINS (Factory Interface Network Service) message communications, one of OMRON’s standard communications services, enables high-speed communications without the need to be aware of the protocol.

For details on connection methods, refer to

Section 5 Connecting to Host via Ethernet or

Controller Link

. For details on the PLCs that can be connected to the Ethernet, refer to

Appendix 8 Standard Models

.

Controller Link is an FA network that can send and receive large data packets among

OMRON PLCs and FA computers. Controller Link Units for PLCs that are supported by the

NS-series PTs connected to NS-CLK21 Controller Link Interface Units can be used to read and write data, word, and bit information simply.

The Controller Link supports data links that enable data sharing and a message service that enables sending and receiving data when required.

For details on connection methods, refer to

Section 5 Connecting to Host via Ethernet or

Controller Link

. For details on the PLCs that can be connected using Controller Link, refer to

Appendix 8 Standard Models

.

Note: Controller Link Interface Units are compatible only with the NS15, NS12, and NS10.

Host Link is a serial communications protocol for connecting an OMRON PT 1:1 to a host (a

PLC) to read and write bits and words from the host. Host Link communications connect a PT to many different PLCs. Refer to the

Host Connection Manual (Host Links)

for connection methods and the PLCs for which Host Links can be used.

1-2-5 Connecting to a Temperature Controller

OMRON Temperature Controllers can be connected with an RS-485 connection.

Attach a CJ1W-CIF11 RS-422A Converter to serial port A or B to convert the communications protocol to RS-485. For details, refer to the

Host Connection Manual (Temp. Control,

MemLink)

.

the Host

1-2-6 Memory Link Connections

When the host is a computer instead of a PLC, the Memory Link protocol can be used to connect with the computer. Use serial port A or B to connect to the host. For details, refer to the

Host Connection Manual (Tem.Control, MemLink)

.

1-2-7 Communicating with Other Devices

The NS-series PTs can communicate with the following devices.

• OMRON Trajexia Motion Controllers

• Mitsubishi FX-series, A-series, and Q-series PLCs

• Siemens S7-300-series PLCs

• Yaskawa MP-series Machine Controllers

• Yaskawa F7-series Varispeed and VS Mini V7-series Inverters

• Rockwell Automation (Allen-Bradley) SLC500, MicroLogix, PLC-5, CompactLogix,

CompactLogix, and ControlLogix Controllers

• Devices that support Modbus RTU

• Yokogawa Electric FA-M3/FA-M3R-series PLCs

For details on connection methods, refer to the

Host Connection Manual (Multivendor Connection)

.

1-2-8 EtherNet/IP

EtherNet/IP is a multi-vendor industrial network protocol that uses Ethernet. The specification is an open standard managed by the ODVA (Open DeviceNet Vendor Association), as is

DeviceNet, and it is used for a variety of industrial devices.

NS-series PTs can communicate with CS/CJ-series EtherNet/IP Units and

CJ2H-CPU @@-EIP, [email protected] or [email protected]@@00 CPU Units. (The [email protected]@-EIP,

CJ2M-CPU3 @ and [email protected] have built-in EtherNet/IP ports.)

Also, it is possible to perform tag message communications when using a CPU Unit with a built-in EtherNet/IP port. These CPU Units contain a tag name server, so if tag names and an address table are stored in advance in the CPU Unit, it is possible to perform access from the

NS-series PT using only the tag names.

This section provides details on the networks for hosts that can be used with NS-series PTs.

2-1-1 Communications Types and Connection Methods

Communications Ports and Methods

All NS-series PTs have two serial ports each. The NS15-TX01 @-V2, NS12-TS01(B)-V1/-V2,

NS10-TV01(B)-V1/-V2, NS8-TV @1(B)-V1/-V2, NS5-SQ01(B)-V1, [email protected](B)-V2, NS5-

TQ

@1(B), and [email protected](B)-V2 each have one Ethernet interface.

A Controller Link Interface Unit can also be mounted to the NS12-TS0 @(B)-V1 or NS10-

TV0 @(B)-V1 to enable Controller Link communications. These communications ports and interfaces can be used for the communications methods shown in the following table.

Note 1: A 1:N NT Link can be set for either normal or high-speed communications.

Note 2: With the NS5, EXP. (Expansion) I/F on the Comm Tab Page in the System Menu settings can be set to use a communications port in the expansion interface connector. The expansion interface, however, is a future expansion, which cannot yet be used. Always use the serial port

B connector. Communications will not be possible on serial port B if the expansion interface is selected in the System Menu settings.

Note 3: Controller Link Interface Units are compatible only with the NS15, NS12 and NS10.

Note 4: With the NS15, the type of communications (RS-232C or RS-422A) can be selected by setting the DIP switch.

The following table shows the possible combinations of communications methods when serial ports A and B are connected to the host at the same time.

2-2 Part Names and Functions

Touch Panel (NS15)

The touch switches on the front panel of the PT are used to perform input operations. Press the touch switches to perform operations such as switching screens and sending bit status to the host.

Resolution

NS15: 1,024 × 1,024

The NS15 has no minimum switch size because the touch panel is analog.

Functional objects can be created combining minimum size switches.

Function performed

When a functional object is pressed, its function is performed.

To ensure correct input operations, create touch switches so that they consist of at least 32 x

32 dots.

The NS15-TX01

@-V2 uses an analog touch panel.

Never press more than two points on the panel at a time. Otherwise, it may activate a switch somewhere between the two points.

Precautions for Safe Use

Precautions for Correct Use

• 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.

• A touch position detection error of up to 10 pixels may occur due to the precision of the NS15-TX01 @-V2 touch panel. Always take this into account when positioning functional objects on the panel so adjoining objects will not be activated by mistake.

• If you touch a point on the panel away from any object and then slide your finger on the panel until it rests on a functional object on the NS15-TX01 @-

V2, that functional object will not be activated. You must remove your finger completely from the panel and then touch the functional object directly to activate that object.

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.

3-6 Using Memory Cards

1. Memory Cards can be used with the PT. History files can be stored in Memory Cards as

CSV files. There are four different types of history file, as follows:

Alarm/event history: Stores alarm/event history data that has been registered by CX-Designer.

Data log:

Operation log:

Error log:

Stores trend data.

Stores screen operation log data.

Stores error history data for when macros are executed.

The history data is normally saved in internal memory that is backed up in the PT, but can also be saved in CSV file format. When history data is saved as a CSV file, it is stored in the Memory Card.

The CSV files containing history data are saved in a user-specified folder in the log folder created in the Memory Card.

2. The following data can be transferred to the Memory Card.

• System programs (the programs required to operate the PT, such as for communications and fonts)

• Screen data (data used in the PT display)

There are three methods for transferring data, as follows:

• Automatic download (Transfers data from the Memory Card to the PT.)

• Automatic upload (Transfers data from the PT to the Memory Card.)

• Manual transfer (Direction for data transfer is selected manually.)

3-6 Using Memory Cards

3-6-3 Transferring Data with Memory Cards

Using a Memory Card with the PT allows system programs (programs that are required to operate the PT, such as those for communications and fonts) and screen data to be transferred to and from the PT.

There are two ways to transfer the data. The data can be transferred using the system menu or by setting the DIP Switch on the back of the NS-series PT.

When screen data is transferred and modified frequently, it is convenient to transfer the data from the System Menu. Use the DIP Switch on the back of the PT instead of the screen operation to save screen data when the display screen is damaged. For details on the System

Menu’s Memory Card Transfer operation, refer to 6-8-9 Memory Card Transfers.

This manual focuses on the PT’s rear-panel DIP switch settings. Three data-transfer operations can be set on the DIP switch: automatic download (transfers data from the Memory

Card to the PT), automatic upload (transfers data from the PT to the Memory Card), or manual transfer (user selects whether to download or upload).

Precautions for Safe Use

• Before transferring data, check that the system programs and screen data types match those in the PT.

• Always reset the PT or turn ON the power again after changing the DIP switch setting.

• Do not perform the following operations while accessing the Memory Card.

The data may be damaged and the Memory Card may need to be formatted.

• Turn OFF the power to the PT.

• Press the PT reset switch.

• Remove the Memory Card.

• Do not remove the Memory Card while power is being supplied to it.

If the PT system is damaged due to the power being turned OFF while a file is being written, or other reason, using normal downloading to replace the system programs may not be possible. For details on troubleshooting, refer to page 3-27.

Data Transfer Security

With NS-series PTs with system program version 6.6 or higher, verification of a security password can be required to transfer data. This password can be used to prevent the project data from being stolen from the PT or overwritten in the PT.

The security password is set from the CX-Designer. Refer to information on transferring the project to the PT in the online help of the CX-Designer for the setting procedure.

DIP Switch

The Memory Card can be divided into up to four areas, which are called banks. The DIP switch on the rear panel of the PT has six pins. The ON/OFF combination of these pins specifies which transfer method is used.

Precautions for Correct Use

There are two DIP switches on the NS15-TX01

@-V2, one for transferring data to and from the Memory Card and one to set RS-232C or RS-422A for serial port

B. Refer to 3-11 SR-232C/RS-422A Selector DIP Switch for details on setting the serial port B.

3-6 Using Memory Cards

Banks are automatically created under the following conditions.

• When data is transferred to the Memory Card using the CX-Designer.

• When data is transferred (uploaded) from the PT.

Reference

• When transferring data, only one bank can be specified. Set only one of pins 1 to 4 to

ON.

• The PT will operate normally when the DIP switch is set to a combination other than one specifying automatic upload, download, or manual transfer.

• When data has already been stored in the banks of the Memory Card and uploading is executed, the previous data in the specified bank will be deleted. Always check the data stored in the banks before uploading.

• If the \[email protected]\DATA and \[email protected]\SYSTEM are created manually in the Memory Card, and used for purposes other than transferring data, when uploading is performed, the data in the folders will be deleted, and the data in the PT will be copied to the folders.

Therefore, do not use \BANK @\DATA or \[email protected]\SYSTEM when creating folders in the Memory Card.

• Set all pins to OFF when using the PT for normal operations.

Some models and series of OMRON PLCs have a built-in 1:1 NT Link function. Some PLCs can also be connected in a 1:1 NT Link by adding a Serial Communications Board or Communications Board.

When connecting the PT to a PLC, check the series and model of the PLC and the model of the Board mounted to the PLC.

Refer to Appendix 8 Standard Models for details on the Units that can be connected to NSseries PTs as hosts using RS-232C or RS-422A communications in a 1:1 NT Link.

Reference

CS/CJ series CPU Units cannot be connected in a 1:1 NT Link. Use a 1:1 connection through 1:N NT Links (normal or high speed). For details, refer to 1:N NT Links or High-

speed 1:N NT Links in Section 4-2 1:N Host Connection.

Supported RS-422A Host Units

Units for RS-422A communications with a built-in 1:1 NT Link function vary according to the type and series of OMRON PLC used.

• C200HX/HG/HE(-Z) PLCs can be connected in a 1:1 NT Link for RS-422A by adding a

Communications Board.

• CQM1H PLCs can be connected in a 1:1 NT Link for RS-422A by adding a Serial Communications Board.

Check the series and type of the PLC and the model of the Board that is mounted to the PLC when connecting the PT to the host.

Refer to Appendix 8 Standard Models for details on the Units that can be connected to NSseries PTs as hosts and support a 1:1 NT Link using RS-422A.

Reference

The 1:1 NT Link is not supported for RS-485 (two-wire) communications. Always use RS-422A

(four-wire).

NS-series RS-485 (two-wire) communications are used to connect to an OMRON Temperature Controller. The NS-AL002 cannot be used with the NT-series PTs or PLCs.

Connecting to CPM2C PLCs

The CPM2C has a single connector that is the same shape as a CS-series peripheral port.

Internally, the connector has signal lines that are for use with the CPU’s built-in RS-232C port and the peripheral port. Therefore, when using the CPM2C, use the settings for the

CPU’s built-in RS-232C port or for the peripheral port according to the converter cable and port used. When using a CPM2C1-CIF21 Simplified Communications Unit, connect it to the

RS-232C port. Use CS1W-CN118 Connecting Cable to connect the CPM2C to the NS-series

PT using the built-in RS-232C port of the CPM2C. The peripheral port cannot be used to connect the PT.

Refer to the CPM2C Operation Manual (Cat. No. W356) for details.

4-2-1 Connection Methods

This section describes the methods used to connect multiple PTs to a single host in a 1:N connection and provides information on the relationship between the connection methods and the communications methods.

The Host and PTs are connected in a 1:N configuration using RS-422A with an RS-

232C/RS-422A Converter.

This connection method can be used for 1:N NT Link connections (normal, high-speed).

The NS15 does not require an adapter if RS-422A is set for serial port B.

The total transmission distance is 500 m when using the NT-AL001, NS-AL002, or the RS-

422A port on a NS15 PT. The total transmission distance is 50 m when using the CJ1W-

CIF11, even if other adapters are used on the same transmission path.

Supported Host Units

The OMRON PLCs that can be connected in 1:N NT Links are limited to the CS-series, CJseries, and C-series PLCs. CS-series PLCs can also be connected in 1:N NT Links by using a CS1W-SCU21/31 Serial Communications Unit. CJ-series PLCs can also be connected in

1:N NT Links by using a CJ1W-SCU31/41 Serial Communications Unit.

Check the series and model of the PLC and the model of the Board or Unit that is mounted to the PLC when connecting the PTs to the host.

For details on the Units used as hosts that can be connected in 1:N NT Links, refer to Ap-

pendix 8 Standard Models.

Reference

• NS-series RS-485 (two-wire) communications are used to connect to an OMRON

Temperature Controller. The NS-AL002 cannot be used with the NT-series PTs or

PLCs. Always use RS-422A (four-wire).

• CS-series PLCs with -V1 suffix support high-speed 1:N NT Links as well as normal

1:N NT Links. CS-series PLCs without the -V1 suffix can also be connected to highspeed 1:N NT Links if the latest Serial Communications Board/Unit is used. Refer to

Units that are used for Ethernet communications vary according to the type and series of

OMRON PLC used.

When connecting an Ethernet Unit, check the series and type of the PLC that it will be connected to and the model of the Unit that is mounted to the PLC.

For details on the hosts that can be connected to NS-series PTs via the Ethernet, refer to

Appendix 8 Standard Models.

The types of hosts that can be connected to NS-series PTs with the Ethernet and the host settings are as follows:

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.

− 2 max. (16,777,214 max.)

− 2 max. (65,534 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).

5-5

5-1 Connecting to Host Via Ethernet

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 SYS-

MAC CS/CJ Series Ethernet Unit Operation Manual (Cat. No. W343) and the SYSMAC

CVM1/CV Series Ethernet Unit Operation Manual (Cat. No. 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) (See note.).

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.

Note

: Up to 46 hosts can be set on the CX-Designer.

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 (CX-

Programmer, SYSMAC-CPT, SYSMAC Support Software, or CV Support Software Ver.2 or later). Refer to the SYSMAC CS/CJ Series Ethernet Unit Operation Manual (Cat. No. W343) and SYSMAC CVM1/CV Series Ethernet Unit Operation Manual (Cat. No. 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

A local network tables contains the unit number and network address for every Communications Unit mounted at a node. If there is more than one Communications Unit at a node, each

Unit will contain a local network table.

5-2 Connecting to the Host Using Controller Link

This section explains the method for connecting to the host using a Controller Link Interface

Unit.

5-2-1 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 (Cat.

No. W383), and the Controller Link Unit Operation Manual (Cat. No. W309).

Note: An optical fiber cable is not available for NS-series PTs.

5-2-2 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), Con-

troller Link Unit Operation Manual (Cat. No. W309), and the Controller Link Support Board for

PCI Bus Operation Manual (Cat. No. 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.

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-Net (Network Configurations 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-Programmer 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.

Setting item Setting range

5-19

5-2 Connecting to the Host Using Controller Link

Precautions for Safe Use

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.

2. Set data link tables for the PT side on the CX-Designer

The two setting methods below can be used. Use the appropriate method for the application.

1) Specifying data link tables with CX-Designer:

If the data link tables are set from the CX-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 CX-Designer the next time the PT is started. To change the data link tables when they have been set from the CX-Designer, it is necessary to retransfer the project or setting file to the PT.

Select PT – Communication Setting – Controller Link in the CX-Designer and specify the data link tables created in step 1. For details on specifying the data link table’s settings file, refer to System Settings and Project Properties in the CX-

Designer’s Online Help.

2) Setting data link tables across a network:

To do so, transfer the data link tables in the Controller Link Interface Unit from the CX-

Server or Controller Link Support Software, and do not specify data link tables from the CX-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 (Cat. No. W361) and the Controller Link Support Software

Operation Manual (Cat. No. W369).

3. Transfer the project created on CX-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.

Precautions for Safe Use

• 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.

5-20

5-2 Connecting to the Host Using Controller Link

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.

Setting Routing Tables

Routine tables that define the communications path from the local node to the network connected to the destination. Routine tables must be set for the following items.

• Local node

• All relay nodes that are included for the communication path from local node to the destination.

Make settings for routing tables on the CX-Designer. For details on setting routing tables, refer to System Settings and Project Properties in the CX-Designer’s Online Help.

For details on setting routing tables for the PLC, refer to Section 7 System Settings in the

CX-Designer Operation Manual.

5-3-1 What is EtherNet/IP?

EtherNet/IP is a multi-vendor industrial network protocol that uses Ethernet. The specification is an open standard managed by the ODVA (Open DeviceNet Vendor Association), as is DeviceNet, and it is used for a variety of industrial devices.

NS-series PTs can communicate with CS/CJ-series EtherNet/IP Units and CJ2H-CPU @@-

EIP, CJ2M-CPU3 @ and [email protected]@@00 CPU Units. (The [email protected]@-EIP, [email protected] and NJ @[email protected]@00 have built-in EtherNet/IP ports.)

Also, it is possible to perform tag message communications when using a CPU Unit with a built-in EtherNet/IP port. These CPU Units contain a tag name server, so if tag names and an address table are stored in advance in the CPU Unit, it is possible to perform access from the NS-series PT using only the tag names.

The following NS-series PTs and systems versions support EtherNet/IP.

Ethernet Switch Types

Unmanaged Layer 2 (L2) Ethernet Switches

These Ethernet switches use the Ethernet MAC address to switch ports. Ordinary Ethernet switches have this function. Ethernet switch functions and settings cannot be changed.

Managed Layer 2 (L2) Ethernet Switches

These Ethernet switches use the Ethernet MAC address to switch ports. Ethernet switch functions and settings can be changed with special software tools for Ethernet switches running on a network node. You can also collect analytical data. These Ethernet switches provide more-advanced functions than unmanaged layer 2 Ethernet switches.

5-27

5-3 Connecting to Host via EtherNet/IP

Ethernet Switch Functions

This section describes the Ethernet switch functions that are important for an EtherNet/IP network. For a built-in EtherNet/IP port, consider whether the Ethernet switch supports these functions when you select the Ethernet switch.

• Multicast filtering

• QoS (Quality of Service) for TCP/UDP port numbers (L4)

Multicast Filtering

Multicast filtering transfers multicast packets to the specific nodes only. This function is implemented in the Ethernet switch as IGMP snooping or GMRP. “Specific nodes” are nodes equipped with an IGMP client that have made transfer requests to the Ethernet switch.

(OMRON built-in EtherNet/IP ports are equipped with an IGMP client.) When the Ethernet switch does not use multicast filtering, multicast packets are sent to all nodes, just like broadcast packets, which increases the traffic in the network. Settings must be made in the

Ethernet switch to enable this function. There must be enough multicast filters for the network.

QoS (Quality of Service) Function for TCP/UDP Port Numbers (L4)

This function controls the priority of packet transmissions so that packets can be sent with higher priority to a particular IP address or TCP (UDP) port. The TCP and UDP protocols are called transport layer protocols, leading to the name L4 (layer 4) QoS function.

Support for the above two functions is as follows for the different types of Ethernet switches.

5-3 Connecting to Host via EtherNet/IP

Basic Installation Precautions

• Take the greatest care when you install the Ethernet system. Be sure to follow ISO 8802-3 specifications. Be sure you understand them before attempting to install an Ethernet System.

• Unless you are already experienced in installation of communications systems, we strongly recommend that you employ a professional to install your system.

• Do not install Ethernet equipment near sources of noise. If a noisy environment is unavoidable, take adequate measures against noise interference, such as installation of network components in metal cases or the use of optical cable in the system.

Precautions on Laying Twisted-pair Cable

• Noise immunity may be reduced by ground loops, which can occur due to improper shield connections and grounding. Ground the shield at one location, as shown in the following diagram.

• Do not connect the shield to the PT’s connector.

• If a cable connects two Ethernet switches, connect the shield at only one end.

• Press the cable connector in firmly until it locks into place at both the Ethernet switch and the EtherNet/IP port.

• Do not lay the twisted-pair cable together with high-voltage lines.

• Do not install the network or network devices near devices that generate noise.

• Do not install the network or network devices in locations subject to high temperatures or high humidity.

• Do not install the network or network devices in locations subject to excessive dirt and dust or to oil mist or other contaminants.

5-29

5-3 Connecting to Host via EtherNet/IP

Ethernet Switch Installation Environment Precautions

• Do not ground the Ethernet switch in the same location as a drive-system component, such as an inverter.

• Always use a dedicated power supply for the Ethernet switch’s power supply. Do not use the same power supply for other equipment, such as an I/O power supply, motor power supply, or control power supply.

• Before installation, check the Ethernet switch’s environmental resistance specifications, and use a Ethernet switch that is appropriate for the ambient conditions. Contact the

Ethernet switch manufacturer for details on Ethernet switch’s environmental resistance specifications.

Ethernet Switch Connection Methods

• Connect two Ethernet switches to each other as follows:

Connect an MDI port to an MDI-X port with a straight cable.

Connect two MDI ports or two MDI-X ports with a cross cable.

• Some Ethernet switches can automatically distinguish between MDI and MDI-X. When this kind of Ethernet switch is used, straight cable can be used between Ethernet switches.

5-3 Connecting to Host via EtherNet/IP

5-3-4 Host Types and Settings

Units that are used for EtherNet/IP communications vary according to the type and series of

OMRON PLC used.

When connecting an EtherNet/IP Unit, check the series and type of the PLC that it will be connected to and the model of the Unit that is mounted to the PLC.

For details on the hosts that can be connected to NS-series PTs via the EtherNet/IP, refer to

Appendix 8 Standard Models.

Refer to the following manual for host parameter settings: SYSMAC CS/CJ-series

EtherNet/IP Units Operation Manual (Cat. No. W465), SYSMAC CJ-series CJ2 CPU Units

Node Address Setting Switches

Set a FINS address for the built-in EtherNet/IP port. With the FINS communications service, multiple EtherNet/IP Units (including the CJ2 Unit built-in EtherNet/IP port) connected by

Ethernet are identified by their node addresses. Using the node address switches, set a unique node address in hexadecimal. The same node address cannot be used by any other

EtherNet/IP Unit or Ethernet Unit connected on the same Ethernet network.

As long as it does not duplicate any other address, the node address can be set from 01 to

FE (1 to 254 in decimal).

Setting range

01 to FE hex (1 to 254 decimal)

Note: The node address is factory-set to 01. With the default setting, the values set on these switches

become the last two digits of the built-in EtherNet/IP port’s IP address.

The default IP address is 192.168.250.node_address. With the factory-set node address of

01, the default IP address is 192.168.250.1.

The node address can be set to any number in the setting range (01 to FE), as long as the same address is not set on another node in the network.

7-1 Maintenance

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.

z 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.

z 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.

z 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, (or after approximately

40,000 hours if an NS8-V1 PT is used.)

LEDs are used in the backlights of the following PTs: NS5-SQ1/-TQ1 PTs with lot number

15Z0 or later, NS8 PTs with lot number 28X1 or later, NS10 PTs with lot number 11Y1 or later, and NS12 PTs with lot number 14Z1 or later. Operation at high temperatures will reduce the life of the backlight. If the backlight become darker, making it difficult to see the screen, replace the backlight. The NS5-SQ1/-TQ1, NS8, NS10, NS12, NS5-MQ, and NS15

PTs with lot numbers that are earlier than the ones given above use a CCFL (cold cathode fluorescent light) as the backlight. The life of the backlight is affected by environmental conditions, particularly by cold environments. If the backlight become darker, making it difficult to see the screen, replace the backlight.

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.

7-2 Inspection and Cleaning

7-2 Inspection and Cleaning

Clean and inspect the PT periodically to maintain it in optimum condition for use.

z 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.

Precautions for Correct Use

Never use benzene, thinner, or other volatile solvents, or chemical cloths to clean the PT.

z 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.

Note 1. This is the estimated time before brightness is reduced by half at room temperature and humidity. It is not a guaranteed value. (It is based on the middle brightness setting using the NS8.)

The life expectancy will be drastically shortened if PT is used at low temperatures. For example, using the PT at temperatures of 0

C will reduce the life expectancy to approximately 10,000 hours (reference value).

2. The brightness cannot be adjusted much.

It detects when the backlight is not lit due to a disconnection or other errors. Backlight error detection indicates that all backlights are OFF.

Appendix 3 Using NS-AL002 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. Any of the Converters listed in Appendix 9 Standard Models can be used. A summary of the NS-AL002 external dimensions, mounting and removal methods, and specifications is provided here.

Refer to this information when designing the control panel. Refer to the Instruction Sheet included with the NS-AL002 for details.

Precautions for Correct Use

The NS-AL002 is an uninsulated RS-232C/RS-422A Converter. Therefore, if differences in ground potential or effects from noise are concerns, it is recommended that an insulated NT-AL001 RS-232C/RS-422A Converter be used instead. For details, refer to Appendix 4 Using NT-AL001 Converters.
