1-1 System Overview
1-1 System Overview
Use the NT631 and NT31 to communicate directly with Allen-Bradley, GE
Fanuc, Siemens, and Modicon PLCs. These operator interfaces
communicate with the Allen-Bradley SLC 500 family, PLC5 series, and
MicroLogix controllers using the DF1 protocol and use the SNP-X protocol to
communicate with GE Fanuc’s 90-20 or 90-30 PLC series. NT631 and NT31
use Prodave HMI protocol in conjunction with Siemens HMI Adapter to
communicate with Siemens S7-300 and S7-400 PLCs. NT631 and NT31 use
Modbus protocol to communicate with Modicon TSX Micro,Premium, and
Quantum PLCs.
These operator interfaces use familiar addressing schemes to quickly
program the NT631 and NT31 using Allen-Bradley, GE Fanuc, Siemens,
Modicon’s PLC address formats.

1-3 Preparing NT31/631 for Software Installation with System
Installer and Downloading the System Program
This section describes how to prepare the NT31/631 for Allen-Bradley, GE
Fanuc, Siemens and Modicon software installation using the NT31/631
System Installer. It also outlines how to use the NT-series System Installer
to download Allen-Bradley, GE Fanuc, Siemens and Modicon system
programs from your personal computer to the PT
The section assumes that you have installed NT Series Support Tool Ver.
4.2 with the NT-Series System Installer on your personal computer to
default paths. To install the NTST software, please refer to the NT-series
Support Tool for Windows Ver. 4.1 Operation Manual (V061-E1-…).
When using NT31/631 with Allen-Bradley, GE Fanuc, Siemens, or
Modicon PLCs, you will not have programming console support.
1-3-1 Preparing NT31/631 for Software Installation with System Installer
If the NT31/631 has no system program installed, or if the system program
is destroyed, System Installer is activated when the PT is powered ON.
To use NT31/631 with Allen-Bradley, GE Fanuc, Siemens, or Modicon
PLCs, you must manually start System Installer and clear Omron’s system
program from the PT. You can then download the system program for
Allen-Bradley, GE Fanuc, Siemens, or Modicon PLCs. When downloading
the system program to the PT, you must use port A on the PT. This section
outlines the steps necessary to run System Installer and clear the existing
program.

SECTION 2
Using NTST with Allen-Bradley, GE Fanuc, Siemens or
Modicon PLCs
NTST version 4.2 allows you to create screen data for NT31/631 using
Allen-Bradley, GE Fanuc, Siemens, or Modicon PLCs. To do so, you must
configure NTST to use Allen-Bradley, GE Fanuc, Siemens, or Modicon
addressing. This section describes how to configure NTST for use with
Allen-Bradley, GE Fanuc, Siemens, or Modicon PLCs. Please see Section
1-2 for compatible PT and PLC vendors.
This section assumes that you have installed NT-series Support Tool Ver.

2-2 Setting the Control/Notify Area
2-2 Setting the Control/Notify Area
After you configure NTST to use the desired PLC, you configure the
addressing through setting the Control/Notify Area.
You use the Control/Notify Area to allocate PLC memory to the PT, which
allows the PT and PLC to exchange data. NT31/631 requires five words of
Control Area and two words of Notify Area within PLC memory. For V1
Model PTs the Window Control Area is available and requires nine words.
This area is used exclusively by the PT. The words may not be used for
any other purpose in the PLC program. Please refer to NT-series Support
Tool for Windows Ver. 4.1 Operation Manual (V061-E1-…) for further
details.
You must program the first word of the Control Area with desired initial
(start) screen number value. NT31/631 recognizes 0 as a blank screen,
which is the typical value at first word of the Control Area. If the first word
is not programmed correctly, you will receive a blank screen on the PT.
This section outlines the steps necessary to set the Control/Notify Area in
NTST for Allen-Bradley, GE Fanuc, Siemens, and Modicon PLCs.
2-2-1 Setting the Control/Notify Area for Allen-Bradley
This section outlines the steps necessary to set the Control/Notify Area in

Note: You can use Allen-Bradley’s hand-held or PC-based software to
allocate memory in “B” Bit or “N” Integer area of the PLC.

Modicon PLCs communicates to NT31/631 using the Modbus protocol. This section describes
setting the memory switches on the PT for use with Modicon PLCs. You can configure Port A
or Port B on the PT for communications Modicon PLCs.
Q To Configure NT31/631 communication for Modicon:
1. Start the PT.
2.
Press two corner keys on the PT at the same time to enter the System Menu.
The System Menu screen appears. See Figure 6-6.

Full addressing range is covered depending on the PLC.
The order of bit numbers that can be specified with NTST and those used at PLC side may differ
depending on a PLC. When setting a bit number with NTST, set a number from 0 to 15. The least
significant bit is 0 and the most significant bit is 15. For example, when the bit 15 is ON and the other
bits are OFF, the value in WORD will be 8000(hex).
Available memory types in Modicon TSX Micro and Premium are %M and %MW.
1.
To use %M, select "0:Coil" or "1:inputas" memory type.
2.
To use %MW, select "4:Holding Register" as memory type.

Error Message on PT
[Duplicate MPI Addr.]
Description
PT MPI Address and PLC MPI
Address are set to the same value.
[Invalid Max. MPI Addr.]
The Max. MPI Address is not
larger than the PT MPI Address
and/or the PLC MPI Address.
[Error Code: 0x0315]
The PT MPI Address is already
used by some other MPI node in
the MPI network.
[Error Code: 0x4002]
or
[Error Code: 0x4004]
or
[Error Code: 0x8105]
[Error Code: 0x0101]
PLC MPI Address, PLC rack
number, or CPU slot number is set
to an incorrect value.
HMI Adapter is no longer
responding.
Solution
Change either the PT MPI Address
or the PLC MPI Address so that
they are not set to the same value.
Press the Max. MPI Addr. button
to change the Max. MPI Address
to a value that is greater than both
the PT MPI Address and the PLC
MPI Address.
Enter the System Menu
Maintenance Mode and press
‘Memory Switch’. Move to the
‘Memory Switch (4/4)’ screen.
Press the ‘MPI’ button.
Change the PT MPI Address to a
value that is not used anywhere
else on the MPI network.
Use the PLC programming
software to determine the PLC
MPI Address, PLC rack number,
and CPU slot number that is
connected to the PT.
Enter the System Menu
Maintenance Mode and press
‘Memory Switch’. Move to the
‘Memory Switch (4/4)’ screen.
Press the ‘MPI’ button. Change the
PLC MPI Address, PLC rack
number, and CPU slot number to
match the PLC settings.
Cycle power on HMI adapter by
disconnecting from PLC or cycling
power on PLC.

Address Conversion Table

Address Conversion Table
Address Conversion Table
Address conversion will be available when converting between 2 different
vendor types. In order to simplify the conversion rules, the common code
table method will be used.
In this table, each address type of a particular vendor is assigned a code.
During conversion of vendor, the address type of the source vendor will be
converted to the address type having the same code in the target vendor.
If there is no code available for an address type in the target vendor, the
address will be reset to NULL, i.e. no address
If the target vendor type does not have the address range which source
vendor supports, all of the addresses which exceed the target range will be
reset to NULL.
