Negative values are expressed as the two’s complement. Therefore, select DINT(signed 2 words) as storage type for the variable, which the decimal value will be stored. Select UDINT(unsigned 2 words) for the variable, which the hexadecimal value will be stored. 2-5-4 Communications writing enabled/disabled Before you can write to variable area in temperature controller, you need to go to the adjustment level and set Communications writing on Enabled: ON. (Default setting is Disabled: OFF). For monitoring only, so when no writing is carried out, the setting can be either Disabled: OFF or Enabled: ON. Use either the panel on the Temperature Controller or Setting Tool to set “Communications Writing” parameter. It can be also set with Smart Active Parts in the PT. 2-12 2-6 Operation of Temperature Controller The use of Smart Active Parts, allows you to operate PT screen to change Temperature Controller running conditions and to disable/enable communications writing. 2-6-1 How to create a Smart Active Parts part In NS-Designer, you open the arrange Smart Active Parts screen. When you select Tools - Use Library , the library dialogue opens. Under list of categories, tree of selectable libraries is shown. Smart Active Parts for temperature controller you can find under PartsLib -> Smart Active Parts -> Temperature Controller. Temperature controller is grouped by model, channel and broadcast. For each operation instruction, a Smart Active Parts part is available. There are 2 categories: Instructions to the unit itself and broadcast . When same instruction is given to all units, no results response is sent. For that reason error judgment is omitted. Selectable Smart Active Parts are shown in the preview box on the right. Title of the selected Smart Active Parts are shown in the bottom center dialogue box. Select appropriate Smart Active Parts and click Use. By doing so, the selected Smart Active Parts is pasted onto the screen that is being edited. The Smart Active Parts part is pasted onto the upper left corner of the screen. Move to the desired location. Or, click the Smart Active Parts part and set communications parameters. port to which command SerialA is sent SerialB Destination Unit No. 0 to 31 :when connected to serial port A :when connected to serial port B :Communications unit No. of the temperature controller you want to operate. With broadcast to all parts, this parameter is not used. Keep default value 0. 2-13 When you want to change the label and color setting of the Smart Active Parts, go to Tools – Options – Edit/Disp tab and check the Edit Smart Active Parts properties. Double click on the desired object to open the property dialog and the settings can be changed. Do not change the communications address when editing the settings. Once it has been changed, the Smart Active Parts will not function properly anymore. Furthermore, once you have selected certain options, you cannot set Smart Active Parts communications settings anymore. So when you want to modify the communications settings, deselected options. 2-14 2-6-2 Smart Active Parts Operations Smart Active Parts for Temperature Controllers are grouped by Temperature Controller model, channel, instruction to single unit/broadcast, control details. Smart Active Parts title indicates the operating instruction to be executed. ■Communications writing enabled/disabled You can either enable or disable the writing of set values from communications. When communications writing is disabled, the writing of set values from communications and the execution of certain instructions is prohibited. Default setting is set as Disable. By executing Smart Active Parts Enable communications writing/Disable communications writing, you can switch between enabled/disabled. If communications writing is not enabled before writing set values with numeral display & input object or word button, an error occurs. Furthermore, by disabling communications writing, you can avoid that set values are being changed by accident. A summary of executable/non executable instructions when communications writing is disabled, is given in table ‘2-6-3 Smart Active Parts list’. ■Setting area 0/setting area 1 Temperature controller communications has 2 operation modes: setting area 0 and setting area 1. In setting area 0, control operations are conducted. You cannot modify any set values that negatively affect the control operations. When power supply is turned on, this mode is selected. In Setting area 1, the control operations are stopped. You can modify the set values protected in Setting area 0. You can switch to Setting area 1 by executing Smart Active Parts part ‘Move to setting area 1’. To change from Setting area 1 to Setting area 0, you can either turn the power off and then back ON again or you can execute Smart Active Parts part: “ Software Reset”. Executable operating instructions vary depending on which mode is selected: setting area 0 or 1. Non executable in setting Area 0 Initialize set values 2-15 Non executable in setting Area 1 AT execute/cancel Move to protect level Auto/manual PV hold ■Confirm command results Under certain conditions e.g. communications writing disabled, it can happen that a selected Smart Active Parts instruction cannot be executed. But, when performing the broadcast, no response is given. In that case there is no check as to whether the action was completed successfully or not. Theref,ore adopt a method that checks if the operation was carried out properly, e.g. lamp indication.

For that reason, test function will not operate successfully when 2 word numbers are designated. 2-7-2 Address display when address error occurs When faulty device is set to communications address set in functional object, this communications address is displayed in the device setting error dialogue. If the communications address is allocated to the temperature controller, not the address for the temperature controller set with the NS-Designer, but the address in the PLC address format is displayed. Addresses will be converted as shown below. Address displayed when faulty device is set to communications address <Device> 3 2 1 0 15 14 13 0 12 Ch 0-3 Unit No. 0 to 31 11 10 0000 to 7FFF 00 to 15 Word address Bit position 9 <variable> 0 to F 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 <address> 0000 to 007F 0 7 6 5 4 0 0 0 0 3 2 Bit position 0 to 31 CH address of temperature controller Unit No. <Device> <Variable > Temp controller 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F C0 C1 C2 C3 C4 C5 C6 C7 C8 C9 CA CB CC CD CE CF D0 D1 D2 D3 D4 D5 D6 D7 <Address> Variable DM EM EM0_ EM1_ EM2_ EM3_ EM4_ EM5_ EM6_ EM7_ EM8_ EM9_ EMA_ EMB_ EMC_ WR 2-19 0 2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 20 22 24 26 28 30 1 3 5 7 9 11 13 15 17 19 21 23 25 27 29 31 0000 to 003F 0040 to 007F 0000 to 007F 0040 to 007F 0000 to 003F 0040 to 007F 0000 to 003F 0040 to 007F 0000 to 003F 1 0 Device setting errors are not likely to occur. This because, setting is done using the method by which a selection is made from a list of accessible addresses for each temperature controller model. However, in below cases in which the address is not selected from the list of accessible addresses an invalid address may have been assigned. In such a case, a device setting error may occur. l Communications address set when functional object was copied using repeat command when index was assigned. l Communications address set by ‘Allocate Addresses Automatically ’ in the frame property. l Communications address set by using the macro function. Furthermore, l Writing to read-only area l Writing while communications writing was prohibited cause device setting errors to occur. 2-7-3 Communications address set when functional part was copied using repeat command In NS-Designer, you can select functional object and when you then execute ‘repeat’ , you can copy while communications addresses are being added. The temperature controller’s address is a double word address. To increment a double word address by 1, you need to increment a single word address by 2. Address in NS-Designer is expressed as a 1 word address. When repeat command is used to copy functional object, 1 word is added to 1 word address. For that reason, when communications address offset width is 1 while repeat command is used, part with the same communications address is copied twice. Actual address Internal address Double word +0 Single word +0 +0 +1 +1 +1 +2 +3 (0.5) (1.5) Address originally set for functional object Omit figures below decimal0.5->0 Omit figures below decimal 0.5->0 For that reason, set always offset in multiples of 2 to specify communications address with single word access. 2-20 Section 3 Connection via Memory Link This chapter explains the Memory Link function and how to use it to connect host computer. 3-1How does Memory Link work 3-2Setup 3-3Communications procedures 3-4What has been changed since NS31/631 3-1 How does Memory Link work 3-1-1 PT memory With Memory Link you assign objects word and bit to PT memory. PT memory is an imaginary PLC area inside the NS. NS performs read/write operations to internal PT memory. Host reads/writes PT memory as required and so controls and monitors NS. PT memory consists of 2 territories: Bit ($B) and Word ($W). PT memory can be also used to store functional object display character strings or as data area for the macro function. 3-1-2 Command and response With Memory Link, the following commands enable data transmission between host and PT. - Read-out command / response This is the command for reading out PT memory of PT. When host gives command, PT responds the contents of the designated data. There are 2 commands that vary with the type of PT memory. Command Title Action RM RB Read out PT ($W) memory Read out PT ($B) memory Read out $W data in PT memory Read out $B data in PT memory - Write command/response This is the command to write designated data to PT memory area in PT. Host gives command. PT responds whether or not the writing was completed successfully. The successful completion response may be omitted by particular setting the Response parameter in the communications conditions menu. The following 4 commands can be given: Command Title Action WM WB FM Write to PT memory ($W) Write to PT memory ($B) FILL PT memory ($W) FB FILL PT memory ($B) Write data to PT memory $W Write data to PT memory $B Write designated data to multiple PT memory $W Write designated data (0 or 1) to Multiple PT memory $B. - Notify Command This is the command to communicate the results of PT operations to host. PT gives command. For that reason, there is no response. The following 2 commands can be given. 3-1 command Title Action SM SB PT memory ($W) change notice PT memory ($B) change notice Notify host of PT memory $W changes. Notify host of PT memory $B changes. - Error response Response from PT when the received command is an invalid one. 3-1-3 Command Title Action ER Error response Notify host of command error Action when command is used There are 3 flows of communications between host and PT, depending on the type of command and Response Settings in Communications conditions. - Write data command while [response: OFF] [Host] Send command Write data command [PT] Receive command Process command - Write Data command while [response: ON] - Read-out data command - Invalid command [Host] command Send command [PT] Receive command Process command receive response Send response - PT to host communications [Host] [PT] PT operation Change PT memory Receive change notice command. Communicate command Send change notice command 3-2 3-1-4 Notify Command Behavior When anything has changed in the PT memory, by e.g. touch switch operation on PT, numerical input or character string input, PT sends change notice command to host. In addition to Memory Link connection, PT memory serves other purposes as well. If all changes would be communicated to host, the host would be burdened more than is needed. For that reason, PT communicates only changes from a designated number and up. Changes in PT memory areas with a lower number are not communicated. Set the number in Communications conditions -> Start Communication $B and Start Communication &W. $W $W0 PT operation no notice Number input Notice start $W notify command Number input Only changes from specified $W number and up are communicated to host using the change notice Command. 3-1-4 Flow control When too many commands are sent, PT cannot process timely. Communications buffer overflows. Commands and command sequence get lost. For that reason, set Communications conditions Response to ON when PT to host command interval frequency becomes high. 3-3 3-2 Settings 3-2-1 Making settings for the Project The Memory Link can be used in combination with NS system program Ver. 5.0 and later versions System Ver.5.0 projects With NS-Designer V5.0 and later, you can create and edit project developed by System Ver.5.0 projects. A project created with NS-Designer Ver. 4.0 or earlier can be opened and converted to the data of Ver.5.0. In NS-Designer Ver. 5.0 open SystemVer.5.0 project, click Settings – System Setting. Select tab ‘Comm.– All’ and set Serial Port A (or Serial Port B) to Memory Link (select from the pull down menu). You cannot simultaneously set Serial Port A and B to Memory Link. 3-4 3-2-2 Communications conditions setting In NS-Designer, select tab ‘Comm.-All’ Serial Port A (or Serial Port B) and set to the following communications conditions. Parameter 3-2-3 Set value Baud rate Data bits 9600bps / 19200bps / 38400bps 7/8 Stop bits Parity response Notice start $B Notice start $W 1/2 None / even / odd OFF / ON 0 to 32767 0 to 32767 Default value 9600bps 7 1 none OFF 16384 16384 NS system menu operation You can also use the NS system menu to set the communications conditions for the Memory Link connection. Under system menu, click tab Communications Setting. By pressing the key beside the Serial Port A or Serial Port B, you can switch between communications methods. unused ↓ NT Link 1:1 ↓ NT Link 1:N ↓ Bar code reader ↓ Temperature controller ↓ Memory Link After you have thus set communications to Memory Link, use the Details key to set the communications conditions for the Memory Link connection (for details, refer to section 2.2). However, with system menu you cannot set the Notice start $B and Notice start $W. Set values are not saved until you press the Write key. Also, setting changes will be effective when you turn the power OFF and then ON again. 3-5 3-2-4 Connection Diagram Use either NS Serial Port A or B to connect host computer via Memory Link. You cannot simultaneously set Serial Port A and B to Memory Link. The connecting cable varies with the specifications of the host computer communications port. Below is a typical example, which shows the wiring diagram when DOS/V PC is connected. 9pin Dsub(Female) 9pin Dsub(Male) 3 SD SD 2 2 RD RD 3 7 RS RS 4 8 CS CS 5 5 SG SG 9 DOS/V PC NS-series PT Above wiring is identical with the NS to and from NS-Designer wiring.

Memory structure inside PT differs, so the structure of Memory Link commands has changed as well. ■ Memory structure inside PT NT31/631 series PT memory Memory table Battery backup Contact point channel common 0000 to 9999 NS series Contact point channel $B0 to 65535 $W0 to 65535 Number memory table Character string memory table bit memory table none Is performed Is not performed ■ Memory Link command NT31/631 series NS series RM Read-out PT memory Read-out PT memory ($W) RB RN RS Read-out bit memory table Read-out number memory table Read-out character string memory table Write to PT memory Write to bit memory table Read-out display data comment Read-out system conditions Write to number memory table Write to character string memory table Fill PT memory Clear number memory table Clear character string memory table Clear bit memory table Touch switch input notice Number input notice Character string input notice Direct area change notice PT memory change notice Switch PT operating mode Request resend Error response Read-out PT memory ($B) - WM WB FR PT WN WS FM FB CN CS CB ST SN SS PM SM SB MC RR ER 3-17 Write to PT memory ($W) Write to PT memory ($B) Fill PT memory ($W) Fill PT memory ($B) PT memory ($W) change notice PT memory ($B) change notice Error response ■ Execution of contact notice to $W While NT31/631 performs contact point change notice and channel change notice in the same PT memory, the NS splits it into $B and $W There, the use of a macro, enables the contact point notice to $W. th E.g. Momentary switch sending notice to 5 bit in $W1000 · Create ON/OFF button · Designate $B address that is not specified for any other purpose. Destination address may be blank, but in that case the button does not light when it is being pressed down. · Edit macro (touch ON) $W1000 = $W1000 | H10; · Edit macro (touch OFF) $W1000 = $W1000 & to H10; ■ PT memory hold Battery backup in NT31/631 ensures that PT memory and memory table values are kept as they were when the power goes off. Contrary to NT31/631, NS has no battery backup and consequently values are cleared when the power is turned off. NS cannot react to an unexpected power fall out, but there is a possibility to store values before the power is turned OFF. You can save a copy of PT memory $W by saving the contents of this memory as a file on a compact flash card. Then removes this card. As it is a file reading/writing operation to a compact flash card, it cannot be done frequently. In addition, you cannot save a copy of the PT memory $B. E.g. Manually save the PT memory $W contents. · Create a command button · Set function selection to No processing · Edit macro (touch ON) WRITECF($W16384,16384,”PTMEM.DAT”,0); E.g. Recover PT memory $W contents from saved file when PT is started up. · Edit macro when project is started up READCF($W16384,16384,”PTMEM.DAT”,0); 3-18 Revision History A manual revision code appears as a suffix to the catalog number on the cover of the manual.

At Buyer’s request, Omron will provide applicable third party certification documents identifying ratings and limitations of use which apply to the Product.

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.

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.
