Configuring the HEC-4xxx-E-R Target in EZ LADDER Toolkit
Before you can program and use the HEC Controller, it must be configured as a target within the EZ LADDER Toolkit. For help with
installing or using EZ LADDER, please refer to the EZ LADDER User’s Manual.
1. In EZ LADDER, from the File Menu at the top, click PROJECT then SETTINGS. This will open the Project Settings Window.
Select HEC-4000 as the target from the choices. Refer to Figure 1.1.
Figure 1.1 - Project Settings Window
2. Click OK. A new window will open. Select the Model number of the HEC-4xxx from the drop-down menu. Click OK. This
will close the Project Settings Window, saving the HEC-4xxx as the target for this ladder diagram project. The E-R suffix is for
RoHS and should be ignored when selecting targets.
Loading the HEC-4xxx-E-R Kernel
THE HEC-4XXX-E-R WILL NOT FUNCTION UNLESS
THIS STEP (KERNEL LOADING) IS COMPLETED.
The kernel is the firmware for the controller and to provide greater flexibility and reliability, HEC Controller shipments are factory
shipped without a kernel. If this is a new unit from the factory, it will be necessary to load the kernel before a ladder program can
be downloaded. If the kernel is already loaded, this step is not required. To upgrade a kernel, see the EZ LADDER User’s Manual.

HEC-4xxx-E-R Features
This section explains the Harsh Environment Controller (HEC-4xxx) hardware features, options and information regarding EZ LADDER
Toolkit for basic operation.
HEC-4xxx-E-R Features
Programming Port
The HEC-4xxx-E-R is programmed using its Programming Port (COM 0). This RS232 serial port is only to be used for programming
using Divelbiss EZ LADDER Toolkit software. This is not a general purpose port and may not be used in any other capacity than
programming the controller itself.
The Programming Port defaults to:
Baud: Parity: Data Bits: Stop Bits : 57600
None
8
1
The HEC-4xxx-E-R Programming Port is wired through the A Connector. The Programming Port requires a NULL MODEM cable or
connection to the computer to establish communications between EZ LADDER Toolkit and the HEC Controller.
This connection may be made by manufacturing your own programming cable. The mating connector for the HEC-4xxx-E-R
Programming Port may be purchased as a kits (HEC-10, Requires special Crimp Tool) or a complete pre-wired assembly for the A
Connector (HEC-100). Ideally, the best option is to purchase the HEC-910 Breakout Cable Assembly. This cable assembly connects
in-line with all connected devices and provides an RS232 9-pin D Male connector as the interface. This also requires a null modem
cable (ICM-CA-34) that connects from the HEC-910 to the computer serial port. While this is the most commonly used programming cable set, other programming cable set options are available.
Refer to Figure 2.1 for Direct Connections and Figure 2.2 for the HEC-900 Break-out method.

HEC-4xxx-E-R Features
Figure 2.2 - Programming Port Break-out Connections
Watchdog LED
The operating status of the HEC-4xxx-E-R can be determined the by Watchdog LED. When the Watchdog LED is flashing at a slow
rate, approximately once per second, then there is no ladder program executing. When the Watchdog LED is flashing at a fast rate,
approximately 10 times per second, a program has been loaded and it is executing.
Should the Watchdog LED not flash at all, first check the input power. If the input power is correct and there is still no Watchdog
LED, contact Divelbiss Technical Services.
Status LED
The HEC-4xxx-E-R provides a programmable status LED that can be seen from the front of the unit. This LED is programmed in the
ladder diagram by using the STATUS variable that is automatically created when the target is selected.
Input Power
The HEC-4xxx-E-R may be powered using 8-32VDC. The input power must be of sufficient supply to drive the HEC controller and
all the digital outputs (based on the load currents for each). Due to wire size limitations of the HEC-4xxx-E-R connectors, multiple
input power pins are provided to allow for parallel input power lines to increase the amount of current (for heavier output loads).
For an input power wiring diagram, refer to Figure 2.3.

HEC-4xxx-E-R Features
Digital Inputs
The HEC-4xxx-E-R includes 4 on-board digital inputs. They are identified in EZ LADDER Toolkit and this manual as GPI0 through
GPI3. Each digital input can accept an input voltage of 8-32 VDC. The presence of this voltage on an input will result in the input
being read as TRUE in the ladder diagram.
GPI0 and GPI1 may be used as general purpose digital inputs or high speed counters; while GPI2 - GPI3 can only be used as general
purpose digital inputs. For information on using GPI0 or GPI1 as high speed counter inputs, refer the COUNTER INPUTS Section of
this User’s Manual.
To read a digital input status in a ladder diagram, place and connect the appropriate contact for your needs. The DIRECT CONTACT
and INVERTED CONTACT functions are used to read digital inputs in the ladder diagram. When placing the contact, verify you select
the correct input address (GPI0 - GPI3) from the provided drop-down menu.
As GPI0 and GPI1 are dual function inputs that operate as digital inputs or high speed counter inputs, each input has a debounce
circuit that can be enabled or disabled. The debounce circuit is disabled by default as if the inputs were to be used as high speed
counters. If using GPIO or GPI1 as a standard digital input, the debounce circuit should be enabled. To enable the debounce circuit,
a variable for each is automatically created D_GPI0 and D_GPI1 respectively. To use these variables, assign them as a direct coil in
the ladder diagram. When true, the debounce for the circuit is enabled.
It is important that the input device source be the same as the HEC-4xxx input power source as shown. Separate power sources
could result in a damage to the controller if input power is lost, but the inputs are still powered. Refer to Figure 2.5.

HEC-4xxx-E-R Features
Counter Inputs
As was noted in the Digital Inputs Section, two of the digital inputs (GPI0, GPI1) may be utilized as high speed counters (up counting
only). These inputs will accept a maximum frequency of 40KHz and are optically isolated to promote noise immunity. These inputs
are ideal to anywhere that high speed counting is required; such as calculating RPM, batch counting and more.
To use GPI0 or GPI1 in a ladder diagram as a high speed counter, you must use the CNTRMR function block. This block, when
placed in the ladder diagram, will provide a drop-down menu to select which counter to use. Refer to the EZ LADDER Toolkit User’s
Manual for details on the CNTRTMR and other function blocks. GPI0 is Counter Channel 1 while GPI1 is Counter Channel 2 in the
CNTRTMR function block.
Please note: Individually, the GPI0 and GPI1 inputs are designed to be used as a digital input only or high speed counter input only.
EZ LADDER will allow the placement of contacts and /or CNTRTMR function in any program. Therefore, you can place and use the
contacts and the CNTRTMR function block in the same program with the same digital input selected. This can be useful in some
programs based on the application, but it is important to know that input contacts will only operate at a fraction of the frequency
that the CNTRTMR function block can accurately read.
Typical High Speed Counter connections are shown in Figure 2.6.

HEC-4xxx-E-R Features
Digital Outputs
The HEC-4xxx-E-R includes 6 on-board digital outputs. They are identified in the EZ LADDER Toolkit and this manual as GPO0 GPO5. These outputs are sourcing, therefore an energized output will source an output voltage equal to the controller input voltage. Refer to Figure 2.7 for typical output connections.
Each output can drive a load up to maximum current rating listed in the specifications section (Refer to Figure 2-16 for current and
temperature ratings) and includes an automatic over-current shutdown safety. In the event an over current condition exists, the
output will shut down. This shut down condition is reset when the output is turned off (set to false) in the ladder diagram.
Each output requires a minimum load to operate correctly. Depending upon the device connected to an output, a minimum load
resistor may be required. If the output is ON or true regardless of the ladder diagram program, connect a 470Ω to 1KΩ load from
the output to input power common.
Each digital output (GPO0 - GPO3) may be configured and used as a digital output or as a Pulse Width Modulation (PWM). Each of
these four outputs may only be used as either digital output or PWM output only. For information on using digital outputs as PWM
outputs, refer to the Pulse Width Modulation Outputs Section of this manual. GPO4 and GPO5 are digital outputs only and cannot
be used as PWM channels.
Commutating diodes should be installed on all output channels for noise immunity. See Figure 2.7. If using current feedback, these
diodes must be installed for the feedback reading to be correct.
To control a digital output in a ladder diagram, place and connect the appropriate coil for your needs. The DIRECT COIL and INVERTED COIL functions are used to control digital outputs in the ladder diagram. When placing the coil, verify you select the correct
output address (GPO0 - GPO5) from the provided drop-down menu.
In addition to controlling the outputs, the status of each digital output may be monitored for an OK or Fault status. When the HEC400x target is configured in EZ LADDER, 6 status variables are created automatically, identified (STAT0 - STAT6). These variables indicate the status of the output and may be used in the program as any boolean variable (DIRECT CONTACT or INVERTED CONTACT). A
High or True condition indicates that the output is functioning properly while a Low or False condition indicates a fault condition of
the output (open load or overload).
Additionally, GPO0 - GPO3 also have current sense feedback capability using analog inputs (AN4-AN7 respectively). These analog
inputs can be utilized in the program as control parameters.

HEC-4xxx-E-R Features
Pulse Width Modulation Outputs
As previously noted, the HEC-4xxx-E-R includes 4 on-board digital outputs that may be configured individually and exclusively as
either digital outputs or pulse width modulation outputs; therefore, each output may only be used as either digital output or PWM
output.
Before Pulse Width Modulation outputs may be used in the ladder diagram, the Pulse Width Modulation Properties must be configured in EZ LADDER Toolkit.
To Configure Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) Outputs in EZ LADDER Toolkit:
1. In EZ LADDER, from the File Menu at the top, click PROJECT then SETTINGS. This will open the Project Settings
Window. The HEC-4000 was previously selected.
2. Click the PROPERTIES button. The HEC-4000 Properties Window will open. Refer to Figure 2.8.

6. Click OK to close the ADD PWM dialog. The next step is configuring the frequencies.
7. Enter the desired frequency for Clock A and Clock B (if installed). The HEC-4xxx-E-R has 4 available PWM Channels. These channels are either controlled with Clock A or Clock B. This allows two different PWM frequencies.
The Minimum and Maximum frequencies are displayed in the PWM Properties dialog. The frequency for
Clock A and Clock B must be in this range. Refer to Figure 2.9.
Due to limitations of hardware, the Desired Frequency and Actual Frequency may vary. The Actual Frequency will be
the closest attainable frequency to the entered Desired Frequency. The Minimum and Maximum frequencies are
displayed.
8. Click OK to close the PWM Properties Window. Click OK to close the HEC-4000 Properties Window and click OK to close
the Project Settings Window.
With the Pulse Width Modulation Outputs configured in EZ LADDER, they can now be used in the ladder diagram project. The
PWM channel(s) are controlled in the ladder diagram by the PWM and PWM_FREQ function blocks. For each PWM channel required, a PWM function block is required. Typically, PWM Outputs operate at a set frequency while the Duty Cycle is adjusted to
vary the output. The Duty Cycle is a variable input to the PWM function block. In the event the frequency must be changed during
operation, the PWM_FREQ function block is used. Refer to the EZ LADDER Toolkit User’s Manual for more detail regarding function
blocks and variables.
Refer to Figure 2.11 for PWM channel connections.
Commutating diodes should be installed on all PWM output channels for noise immunity. See Figure 2.11.

Analog Inputs
The HEC-4xxx-E-R provides 4 analog inputs for external devices. The resolution and rating for the analog inputs is model dependent.
The HEC-4xxx-E-R is offered with 10 bit, 12 bit and 15 bit resolutions with ratings of either 0-5VDC or 0-20mADC. Each analog input
is represented in the EZ LADDER Toolkit ladder diagram using variables labeled AN0 through AN3 respectively. These variables are
created automatically when the HEC-4xxx-E-R target is selected in the Project Settings Window.

Output Current Feedback
The HEC-4xxx-E-R provides current feedback for each PWM capable output (GPO0 - GPO3). Each of these four outputs are internally monitored using analog inputs (AN4-AN7 respectively). This analog feedback represents the output current from 0 to 4 Amps.
As with all other analog inputs, these variables are created automatically when the HEC-4xxx-E-R target is selected and configured.
The resolution of these feedback analog input channels is dependent upon the model number of the HEC-4xxx as described in the
Analog Inputs Section (10 bit, 12 bit or 16 bit). These channels will always be the same resolution as the external analog input channels (AN0 - AN3).
These analog inputs may be used in combination with function blocks in circuits to calculate the actual output current on the PWM
channel.
Commutating diodes must be installed on PWM channels when using the current feedback analog inputs. Failure to use commutating diodes will result in incorrect current feedback readings. See Figure 2.11.

The HEC-4xxx-E-R optionally may be ordered with a second serial port. This serial port is a general purpose serial port that supports
serial printing. This port may also be used to communicate to a Modbus Master Device (the HEC is a Modbus Slave). At this time,
the general purpose serial port is an output device only as there is no software support to read a serial input.
This port may be factory ordered as HEC-4xx1-E-R (RS232), HEC-4xx2-E-R (RS422) or HEC-4xx3-E-R (RS485). The general purpose
serial port connection is achieved by a factory installed cable with an industry standard M8 connector. The HEC-4xx0-E-R does not
have a general purpose serial port. Figure 2.13 illustrates the general purpose serial port cabling. For cable pin assignments, refer
to Figure 2.14.

HEC-4xxx-E-R Features
CAN Networking Ports
The HEC-4xxx-E-R provides two on-board CAN bus interface ports. These CAN ports may be used for additional communications
and networking including SAE J1939 and the Divelbiss proprietary OptiCAN Network.
The on-board CAN ports are CAN 0 and CAN 4 respectively. To use the HEC’s CAN ports as either SAE J1939 or OptiCAN, it will be
necessary to configure certain parameters. These parameters may be configured from the HEC-4xxx Properties Window in the
Project Settings. As these settings vary greatly and are software based only, please refer to the EZ LADDER Toolkit User’s Manual for
details on configuring, using and implementing CAN port networking including all relevant function blocks.
The CAN ports should be wired according to established practices for CAN networks. Figure 2.15 illustrates typical CAN Port connections.
Figure 2.15 - Typical CAN Port Connections
HEC-4xxx-E-R Target Setting Options
To use some of the function blocks and features on the HEC-4xxx-E-R, it may be required to configure additional target properties in
the Project Settings Dialog Box. Click PROJECT then SETTINGS. With the HEC-4000 selected, click PROPERTIES.
The following are items that must be configured in the HEC-1000 Project Settings, Properties Dialog.
PWM Properties
This is used to configure the Pulse Width Modulation channels (see Pulse Width Modulation Outputs).
J1939 Properties
This is where SAE J1939 Communications is enabled and configured. Refer to the J1939 section of the EZ
LADDER Manual.
OptiCAN Properties
This is where OptiCAN Communications is enabled and configured. Refer to the OptiCAN section of the
EZ LADDER Manual.
Serial Print Properties
This is used if the Serial Print function block is to be used to transmit data to an external device using the
General Purpose Serial port. The serial port is configured here.
