Project data
Eight FH vision sensor series devices can be registered to one project.
In the FH sensor controller series, the following types of data provided by Sysmac Studio are managed
as project data.
• Scene group data (scene data)
• System data
• Tool data (communications command macros, security settings, and other data)
By using the Multi-line Random-trigger Mode, the FH sensor controller independently processes multiple processing lines at the same time.
Project data manages these data together as one batch. These data can also be exported and imported
individually as file data.

1 Overview
Project Data Handling in Different System Configurations
The contents of the Sysmac Studio project data and the data being synchronized vary depending on
the connection method (i.e., Ethernet direct connection or connection through an NJ-series Controller)
between the FH sensor controller and the computer that runs Sysmac Studio. Particularly with the connection through an NJ-series Controller, there are restrictions on the Sysmac Studio functionalities execution. Be sure you understand the following before operation.
Refer to 2-8 Precautions on Synchronization through an NJ-series Controller on page 2-39.

The data that the NJ-series Controller
manages within the project data that Sysmac
Studio manages is synchronized.
Because the data that the FH sensor
controller manages (i.e., the settings data for
the FH sensor controller) is not synchronized,
the settings for the FH sensor controller need
to be synchronized separately.
Refer to 2-8 Precautions on Synchronization

possible. Setting the settings data, and
creating and adjusting the measurement

(1) Connection through an NJ-series Controller (when executing an NJ project)
The settings data for the FH sensor controller
is not downloaded.
Performing the data downloading from
Sysmac Studio will not download the data
that the FH sensor controller manages within
the project data that Sysmac Studio
manages. Therefore, the settings for the FH
sensor controller will not be overwritten.
There are following two methods to download
the FH settings data to the FH sensor
controller.
(2) Ethernet direct connection (when executing an FH project)
Downloading the FH settings data from
Sysmac Studio is possible.
If the FH sensor controller is connected to
the computer that runs Sysmac Studio via
Ethernet, downloading the FH settings data
from Sysmac Studio to the FH sensor
controller is possible by transferring the
project data that the Sysmac Studio
manages to the FH sensor controller via the
Ethernet.

1 Overview
The data that the NJ-series Controller manages and the data that the FH sensor controller
manages are handled separately on Sysmac Studio except for the I/O Map data that the
NJ-series Controller manages. The I/O Map is associated to the system data that the FH sensor controller manages. Because of this, the information in the I/O Map will be updated and
changed after editing the data that the FH sensor controller manages (i.e., the settings data for
the FH sensor controller).

Precautions on Synchronization
through an NJ-series Controller
The contents of the Sysmac Studio project data and the data being synchronized vary depending on
the connection method (i.e., Ethernet direct connection or connection through an NJ-series Controller)
between the FH sensor controller and the computer that runs the Sysmac Studio. Particularly, the settings data for the FH sensor controller cannot be synchronized via an NJ-series Controller.
This section describes precautions on performing the system synchronization from the System Studio
via an NJ-series Controller.
For the overview, refer to 1-2-2 Project Data Handling in Different System Configurations on page 1-5.

Synchronized Project Data
The Sysmac Studio manages the settings data for the FH sensor controller as a part of the project data.
(Refer to 1-2-1 Project data on page 1-4.)
The data size of the FH sensor controller settings varies depending on the created scenes and measurement flows. (Refer to Memory Usage Guidance For Processing Items in Vision System FH/FZ5
Series User's Manual (Cat. No. Z340).) Because of this, the settings data for the FH sensor controller
cannot be synchronized via an NJ-series Controller.
There are following methods to synchronize the settings data for the FH sensor controller with the data
in the Sysmac Studio.
(1) Directly connect the FH sensor controller to the computer that runs the Sysmac Studio via
Ethernet
Refer to 3-3 Synchronizing Project Data and Sensor Settings Data on page 3-8.
(2) Use the external memory
The procedures are described in the following sections:

using the external memory.
z Saving and loading the settings data for the FH sensor controller
The following procedures describe how to save and load the settings data for the FH sensor controller that is in the FH sensor controller to the external memory. Save and load following four types of
the settings data individually.
(1) System + Scene group 0 data
2
Refer to the following:
• Loading Settings Data from the Controller RAM Disk or an External Memory Device to
the Sensor Controller in Vision System FH/FZ5 Series User's Manual (Cat. No. Z340)
(2) Data for scene groups 1 to 31
Refer to the following:
• Saving Settings Data to the Controller RAM Disk or an External Memory Device in
Vision System FH/FZ5 Series User's Manual (Cat. No. Z340)
• Loading Settings Data from the Controller RAM Disk or an External Memory Device to
the Sensor Controller in Vision System FH/FZ5 Series User's Manual (Cat. No. Z340)

A-1 Sysmac Device Features
The control device product designed according to standardized communications and user interface
specifications for OMRON control devices are called a Sysmac Device.
And the features available with such a Device is called Sysmac Device Features.
A-1-1
Sysmac Error Status
Because, in Sysmac Devices, errors that may occur in slaves are systematized, you can check the
causes and remedies for errors with a common procedure.
The status of an error can be monitored in the Sysmac Error Status (2002-01 hex). To display the error
status detected by the FH series Vision Sensor in Sysmac Studio, the Sysmac Error Status (2002-01
hex) must be mapped to the PDO. Sysmac Studio, by default, uses the 512th transmit PDO Mapping
assignment to map the Sysmac Error Status (2002-01 hex) automatically to the PDO.
Additional Information
• For the Sysmac Error status (2002-01 hex), refer to Vision System FH/FZ5 Series User's
Manual for Communications Settings (Cat. No. Z342).
• For errors displayed in Sysmac Studio, refer to NJ-series Troubleshooting Manual (Cat. No.
W503).

Saving the Node Address Setting
When the node address switch setting is “00” (Software Setup mode), the node address value you set
in Sysmac Studio is enabled. If the node address switches are set to any other value, the value that is
set on the switches is used as the node address.
In the Software Setup mode, in Sysmac Studio, execute [Write Slave Node Address] on the [EtherCAT
Edit] screen to save the slave node address setting in the nonvolatile memory of the FH series Vision
Sensor.
Software Setting
The set value saved as Slave Information Interface (SII) information in the nonvolatile memory of the
slave is the node address.

Serial Number Display
The serial number saved in the nonvolatile memory of the Vision Sensor is displayed in the Serial Number (1018-04 hex). Controllers that support Sysmac Device Features can use this serial number to
check the network configuration. To enable this check, in Sysmac Studio, set [Serial No. Check Condition] to [Set Value = Actual Unit] on the [EtherCAT Edit] screen. If the set condition is not met, a Network
Configuration Check Error will occur.
Additional Information
This network configuration check detects any slave devices that have been replaced, which
prevents you from forgetting to set parameters on those slaves.

Compliance with ESI Specification (ETG.2000 S (R) V1.0.1)
The ESI Specification is a set of specifications that define the entries required in an EtherCAT Slave
Information (ESI) file.
A-1-5
SII Data Check
The Slave Information Interface (SII) is an interface area in the nonvolatile memory of an EtherCAT
slave that stores the configuration information specific to that EtherCAT slave.
Sysmac Device EtherCAT slaves check the SII information from the slave side.
If one of these slaves finds that SII information with which it cannot operate was written, it generates an
SII Check Error (Error No. 88.3). If this error persists even after turning OFF and then ON the power
again, contact your OMRON sales representative.
Precautions for Correct Use
Do not use third-party or any other configuration tools to edit the SII information.

on any unshipped portions of outstanding orders. Payments for Products are
due net 30 days unless otherwise stated in the invoice.
3. Discounts. Cash discounts, if any, will apply only on the net amount of invoices
sent to Buyer after deducting transportation charges, taxes and duties, and will
be allowed only if (i) the invoice is paid according to Omron’s payment terms
and (ii) Buyer has no past due amounts.
4. Interest. Omron, at its option, may charge Buyer 1-1/2% interest per month or
the maximum legal rate, whichever is less, on any balance not paid within the
stated terms.
5. Orders. Omron will accept no order less than $200 net billing.
6. Governmental Approvals. Buyer shall be responsible for, and shall bear all
costs involved in, obtaining any government approvals required for the importation or sale of the Products.
7. Taxes. All taxes, duties and other governmental charges (other than general
real property and income taxes), including any interest or penalties thereon,
imposed directly or indirectly on Omron or required to be collected directly or
indirectly by Omron for the manufacture, production, sale, delivery, importation, consumption or use of the Products sold hereunder (including customs
duties and sales, excise, use, turnover and license taxes) shall be charged to
and remitted by Buyer to Omron.
8. Financial. If the financial position of Buyer at any time becomes unsatisfactory
to Omron, Omron reserves the right to stop shipments or require satisfactory
security or payment in advance. If Buyer fails to make payment or otherwise
comply with these Terms or any related agreement, Omron may (without liability and in addition to other remedies) cancel any unshipped portion of Products sold hereunder and stop any Products in transit until Buyer pays all
amounts, including amounts payable hereunder, whether or not then due,
which are owing to it by Buyer. Buyer shall in any event remain liable for all
unpaid accounts.
9. Cancellation; Etc. Orders are not subject to rescheduling or cancellation
unless Buyer indemnifies Omron against all related costs or expenses.
10. Force Majeure. Omron shall not be liable for any delay or failure in delivery
resulting from causes beyond its control, including earthquakes, fires, floods,
strikes or other labor disputes, shortage of labor or materials, accidents to
machinery, acts of sabotage, riots, delay in or lack of transportation or the
requirements of any government authority.
11. Shipping; Delivery. Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing by Omron:
a. Shipments shall be by a carrier selected by Omron; Omron will not drop ship
except in “break down” situations.
b. Such carrier shall act as the agent of Buyer and delivery to such carrier shall
constitute delivery to Buyer;
c. All sales and shipments of Products shall be FOB shipping point (unless otherwise stated in writing by Omron), at which point title and risk of loss shall
pass from Omron to Buyer; provided that Omron shall retain a security interest in the Products until the full purchase price is paid;
d. Delivery and shipping dates are estimates only; and
e. Omron will package Products as it deems proper for protection against normal handling and extra charges apply to special conditions.
12. Claims. Any claim by Buyer against Omron for shortage or damage to the
Products occurring before delivery to the carrier must be presented in writing
to Omron within 30 days of receipt of shipment and include the original transportation bill signed by the carrier noting that the carrier received the Products
from Omron in the condition claimed.
13. Warranties. (a) Exclusive Warranty. Omron’s exclusive warranty is that the
Products will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of
twelve months from the date of sale by Omron (or such other period expressed
in writing by Omron). Omron disclaims all other warranties, express or implied.

BUYER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT ALONE HAS DETERMINED THAT THE
PRODUCTS WILL SUITABLY MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF THEIR
INTENDED USE. Omron further disclaims all warranties and responsibility of
any type for claims or expenses based on infringement by the Products or otherwise of any intellectual property right. (c) Buyer Remedy. Omron’s sole obligation hereunder shall be, at Omron’s election, to (i) replace (in the form
originally shipped with Buyer responsible for labor charges for removal or
replacement thereof) the non-complying Product, (ii) repair the non-complying
Product, or (iii) repay or credit Buyer an amount equal to the purchase price of
the non-complying Product; provided that in no event shall Omron be responsible for warranty, repair, indemnity or any other claims or expenses regarding
the Products unless Omron’s analysis confirms that the Products were properly handled, stored, installed and maintained and not subject to contamination, abuse, misuse or inappropriate modification. Return of any Products by
Buyer must be approved in writing by Omron before shipment. Omron Companies shall not be liable for the suitability or unsuitability or the results from the
use of Products in combination with any electrical or electronic components,
circuits, system assemblies or any other materials or substances or environments. Any advice, recommendations or information given orally or in writing,
are not to be construed as an amendment or addition to the above warranty.
See http://www.omron247.com or contact your Omron representative for published information.
Limitation on Liability; Etc. OMRON COMPANIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE
FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES,
LOSS OF PROFITS OR PRODUCTION OR COMMERCIAL LOSS IN ANY
WAY CONNECTED WITH THE PRODUCTS, WHETHER SUCH CLAIM IS
BASED IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, NEGLIGENCE OR STRICT LIABILITY.
Further, in no event shall liability of Omron Companies exceed the individual
price of the Product on which liability is asserted.
Indemnities. Buyer shall indemnify and hold harmless Omron Companies and
their employees from and against all liabilities, losses, claims, costs and
expenses (including attorney's fees and expenses) related to any claim, investigation, litigation or proceeding (whether or not Omron is a party) which arises
or is alleged to arise from Buyer's acts or omissions under these Terms or in
any way with respect to the Products. Without limiting the foregoing, Buyer (at
its own expense) shall indemnify and hold harmless Omron and defend or settle any action brought against such Companies to the extent based on a claim
that any Product made to Buyer specifications infringed intellectual property
rights of another party.
Property; Confidentiality. Any intellectual property in the Products is the exclusive property of Omron Companies and Buyer shall not attempt to duplicate it
in any way without the written permission of Omron. Notwithstanding any
charges to Buyer for engineering or tooling, all engineering and tooling shall
remain the exclusive property of Omron. All information and materials supplied
by Omron to Buyer relating to the Products are confidential and proprietary,
and Buyer shall limit distribution thereof to its trusted employees and strictly
prevent disclosure to any third party.
Export Controls. Buyer shall comply with all applicable laws, regulations and
licenses regarding (i) export of products or information; (iii) sale of products to
“forbidden” or other proscribed persons; and (ii) disclosure to non-citizens of
regulated technology or information.
Miscellaneous. (a) Waiver. No failure or delay by Omron in exercising any right
and no course of dealing between Buyer and Omron shall operate as a waiver
of rights by Omron. (b) Assignment. Buyer may not assign its rights hereunder
without Omron's written consent. (c) Law. These Terms are governed by the
law of the jurisdiction of the home office of the Omron company from which
Buyer is purchasing the Products (without regard to conflict of law principles). (d) Amendment. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between
Buyer and Omron relating to the Products, and no provision may be changed
or waived unless in writing signed by the parties. (e) Severability. If any provision hereof is rendered ineffective or invalid, such provision shall not invalidate
any other provision. (f) Setoff. Buyer shall have no right to set off any amounts
against the amount owing in respect of this invoice. (g) Definitions. As used
herein, “including” means “including without limitation”; and “Omron Companies” (or similar words) mean Omron Corporation and any direct or indirect
subsidiary or affiliate thereof.
Certain Precautions on Specifications and Use
1. Suitability of Use. Omron Companies shall not be responsible for conformity
with any standards, codes or regulations which apply to the combination of the
Product in the Buyer’s application or use of the Product. At Buyer’s request,
Omron will provide applicable third party certification documents identifying
ratings and limitations of use which apply to the Product. This information by
itself is not sufficient for a complete determination of the suitability of the Product in combination with the end product, machine, system, or other application
or use. Buyer shall be solely responsible for determining appropriateness of
the particular Product with respect to Buyer’s application, product or system.
Buyer shall take application responsibility in all cases but the following is a
non-exhaustive list of applications for which particular attention must be given:
(i) Outdoor use, uses involving potential chemical contamination or electrical
interference, or conditions or uses not described in this document.
(ii) Use in consumer products or any use in significant quantities.
(iii) Energy control systems, combustion systems, railroad systems, aviation
systems, medical equipment, amusement machines, vehicles, safety equipment, and installations subject to separate industry or government regulations.
(iv) Systems, machines and equipment that could present a risk to life or property. Please know and observe all prohibitions of use applicable to this Product.
NEVER USE THE PRODUCT FOR AN APPLICATION INVOLVING SERIOUS
RISK TO LIFE OR PROPERTY OR IN LARGE QUANTITIES WITHOUT
ENSURING THAT THE SYSTEM AS A WHOLE HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO

5.
ADDRESS THE RISKS, AND THAT THE OMRON’S PRODUCT IS PROPERLY RATED AND INSTALLED FOR THE INTENDED USE WITHIN THE
OVERALL EQUIPMENT OR SYSTEM.
Programmable Products. Omron Companies shall not be responsible for the
user’s programming of a programmable Product, or any consequence thereof.
Performance Data. Data presented in Omron Company websites, catalogs
and other materials is provided as a guide for the user in determining suitability and does not constitute a warranty. It may represent the result of Omron’s
test conditions, and the user must correlate it to actual application requirements. Actual performance is subject to the Omron’s Warranty and Limitations
of Liability.
Change in Specifications. Product specifications and accessories may be
changed at any time based on improvements and other reasons. It is our practice to change part numbers when published ratings or features are changed,
or when significant construction changes are made. However, some specifications of the Product may be changed without any notice. When in doubt, special part numbers may be assigned to fix or establish key specifications for
your application. Please consult with your Omron’s representative at any time
to confirm actual specifications of purchased Product.
Errors and Omissions. Information presented by Omron Companies has been
checked and is believed to be accurate; however, no responsibility is assumed
for clerical, typographical or proofreading errors or omissions.
