EMC Directives
OMRON devices that comply with EC Directives also conform to the related
EMC standards so that they can be more easily built into other devices or the
overall machine. The actual products have been checked for conformity to
EMC standards (see the following note). Whether the products conform to the
standards in the system used by the customer, however, must be checked by
the customer.
EMC-related performance of the OMRON devices that comply with EC Directives will vary depending on the configuration, wiring, and other conditions of
the equipment or control panel on which the OMRON devices are installed.
The customer must, therefore, perform the final check to confirm that devices
and the overall machine conform to EMC standards.
Note
Applicable EMS (Electromagnetic Susceptibility) and EMI (Electromagnetic
Interference) Standards in the EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) standards are as follows:
Unit/Board
CS1W-SPU01

Section 4-1
Overview of Database Storage Function
This section describes the database storage function added for EDMS version
2.0.
4-1-1
The Database Storage Function
The database storage function takes data collected by SPU Units and automatically stores it in databases. This enables easily creating information systems using SPU Units for database management of quality control data or
manufacturing results. There is no need to write programs to store data in
databases, so the cost of constructing systems is greatly reduced.
The setting information in SPU Units can be used to automatically design
databases. You can thus store data in a database with only a few easy settings even if you have no knowledge of databases.
Also databases can be linked to EQView (WS02-EQMC1-V1) to graphically
display the data stored in databases by the EDMS.
4-1-2
Procedural Flow for Database Storage
The basic procedure for making the settings required to start database storage and for controlling database storage is given below.
Note
(1) Refer to the SPU-Console Operation Manual (Cat. No. V231) for SPUConsole operating methods.
(2) Refer to SECTION 3 Copy Function for operating methods for the file
copying function of the EDMS-Console.
1,2,3...
1. Use the SPU-Console to set the data to be collected from SPU Units. Be
sure to set three or more data collection files.
Refer to the SPU-Console Operation Manual (Cat. No. V231).
2. Select File - SPU Device from the menu bar to place the EDMS-Console
online with an SPU Unit.
Refer to the 3-2-3 Registering SPU Units.
3. Enable copying files in the EDMS-Console’s File Copy Window.
Refer to the 3-2-5 Setting Files to Copy.
4. Set up database storage on the EDMS-Console’s Database Storage Window.
Refer to the 4-3-1 Database Storage Settings.
5. Start database storage on the EDMS-Console’s Database Storage Window.
Refer to the 4-3-2 Starting Database Storage and 4-5 Data Table Storage
Operations.
4-1-3
Automatically Creating Database Tables
The database storage function of the EDMS-Console can automatically create tables to store data from CSV files into a database based on SPU Unit
setting information. This greatly reduces the work required to design the database and lets you build a database system even if you do not have knowledge
of databases.
The following three types of tables are created from the setting information in
SPU Units (i.e., from settings for variables and collection patterns).
• Data tables
30
Section 4-1
Overview of Database Storage Function
• Variable tables
• Administrative tables
These tables are described in order in the following sections.
Data Tables
The database storage service stores data from CSV files into data tables. An
empty data table is made according to the format in the CSV file. Tables can
be named automatically or manually, and each database can contain more
than one data table. Automatically assigned names are in the form
“EDMS0000,” i.e., a serial number is added after “EDMS.”
The fields in a data table correspond 1:1 to the fields in the CSV file. Fields
include index fields and other header fields, as well as the data fields that are
used to store the actual data.
Field name
Description
Long integer
A header field that stores an index for the
record. This field corresponds to column
0 in the CSV file.
TIME_STAMP
Time
A header field that stores the time (year,
month, day of month, hour, minutes, and
seconds) that the data was collected.
This field corresponds to column 1 in the
CSV file.
TIME_STAMP_NANO
Long integer
SAMPLING_INDEX
DATA_n
Note
Field type
RECORD_INDEX
A header field that stores the time (milliseconds and less) the data was collected. This field corresponds to column
2 in the CSV file.
Long integer
A header field that stores the sampling
index. This field corresponds to column 3
in the CSV file.
Depends on data Data fields, which store the actual data.
type of variable
Field names consist of “Data_” followed
by a serial number starting from 0. Data
fields correspond to columns 4 and on in
the CSV file.
Data tables must be recreated if the number of variables in the SPU Unit is
changed.If the data tables are not recreated, the data types of variables will
not match the data types of the fields, and it may not be possible to store data
correctly in the database. To recreate the data tables, delete the database
storage settings and then make the database storage settings again.
Variable Tables
Variable tables store the attributes (variable information) on the data stored in
the data tables. The tables are automatically named by the EDMS-Console.
Variable tables and data tables correspond 1:1.
Each record in a variable table corresponds to one data field in the data table.
A variable table can be searched to find details on the variables stored in the
data table.
Field name

Troubleshooting the Database Storage Function
All errors that occur while using the database storage function are logged.
The cause of the error can sometimes be determined by checking the log.
Refer to 3-2-9 Checking the Log for details on the checking procedure.
The main errors that can occur, the assumed causes, and the required corrections are listed in the following table.

with the SPU-Console is different from the actual data type in
the PLC.
Correction
Correct the data type of the variable with the SPU-Console.
Then use the EDMS-Console to
delete the database storage settings and then recreate the
table.
The data type of a variable
being collected by the SPUConsole has been changed and
no longer agrees with the data
type in the database.
A variable for collection has
been deleted or added with the
SPU-Console, so the number of
CSV file fields does not agree
with the number of database
fields.
Use the EDMS-Console to
delete the database storage settings and then recreate the
table.
The database is not started.
Start the database and then
start data storage.
If the database is connected
remotely, then there may be a
network problem preventing a
connection to the database.
There is some problem with the
database that is causing errors
when storing data.
An application, such as Excel, is
using the CSV file, preventing it
being opened for database storage.
Correct the problem with the
network and then start data storage.
Database storage failure
Cannot open

Note
Correct the problem with the
database and then start data
storage.
Close the CSV file.
Data is stored in the error log as follows:
Date, time, error number, service name, data source name, block name, error
details.
• The service name, data source name, and block name will tell you the
data storage service in which the error occurred.
• The error details include the cause of the error, what record the error
occurred in, and other details. The error details that are actually recorded depend on the error that occurs.

Section 5-2
EDMS Capabilities
5-2
EDMS Capabilities
The copying and database storage capabilities of the EDMS are affected by
the following factors.
• Operating Environment
The operating environment includes the capabilities of the computer, network, database, and other factors.
• Load on the SPU Unit
The load on the SPU Unit includes the SPU Unit cycle time, the number of
variables being sampled, the collection patterns being used, etc.
• Unit Monitoring Cycle and Number of Copies Made
The copying and database storage performance of the EDMS is not limited by
any specific restrictions for these factors. We assume, however, that you will
test the application before actual implementation to confirm that the required
capabilities can be provided by the actual system to be used. We recommend
that you completely test all of the above factors and suitably set up the system
to achieve the required performance.
Some examples of actual trials that can be performed are given below.
Copying and Database Storage with a Short Cycle without Losing Data
Set the SPU Unit as follows:
• Increase the number of files.
• Decrease the number of collection patterns.
• Decrease the number of variables stored as data.
Decrease the number of copies.
Copying Large Quantities of Data
Set the SPU Unit as follows:
• Increase the number of files.
• Increase the cycle times for collection patterns.
• Decrease the number of variables stored as data.
Increase the Unit monitoring time.
