xii
Precautions for Safe Use
• When unpacking the Units and peripheral devices, check carefully for any external scratches or
other damage. Also, shake the products gently and check for any abnormal sound.
• Always install the Unit in the control panel.
• The mounting panel must be between 1.6 and 2.5 mm thick. Tighten the Mounting Brackets evenly
to a torque of 0.7 N·m to maintain water and dust resistance. Make sure the panel is not dirty or
warped and that it is strong enough to hold the Units.
• Do not let metal particles enter the Units when preparing the panel.
• Do not connect an AC power supply to the DC power terminals.
• Use reinforced insulation or double insulation for the DC power supply with minimal fluctuation voltage to the Unit. Ensure that a stable power output can be provided even if a 10-ms interruption
occurs at the input. Tighten the terminal block screws to a torque of 0.51 N·m.
Rated power supply voltage: 24 VDC (Allowable range: 21.6 to 27.6 VDC)
Capacity: 12 W minimum
• Do not perform a dielectric voltage test.
• Ground the Unit correctly to prevent malfunctions caused by noise.
• Do not touch the surface of the circuit board or the components mounted on it with your bare hands.
Discharge any static electricity from your body before handling the board.
• Confirm that the current capacity of the connected device is 250 mA or less before using 5VDC
power supply from the pin 6 of the serial port COM1 connectors. The 5VDC output of the Unit is
250 mA maximum at 5 V ±5%.
• Turn OFF the power supply before connecting or disconnecting cables.
• The tightening torque of the serial port COM1 is 0.6 N·m.
The tightening torque of the serial port COM2 is 0.2 N·m.
• The maximum tensile load for cables is 30 N. Do not apply loads greater than this.
• Confirm the safety of the system before turning ON or OFF the power supply.
• The whole system may stop depending on how the power supply is turned ON or OFF. Turn ON or
OFF the power supply according to the specified procedure.
• Start actual system application only after sufficiently checking screen data, macros, and the operation of the program in the host.
• To ensure the safety of the system, incorporate a program that can check that the Unit is properly
operating.
• Before initializing screen data, confirm that existing data is backed up at a computer.
• To use numeric input functions safely, always make maximum and minimum limit settings.
• An image will be burnt onto the screen if the same pattern is continuously displayed for a long period
of time (24 hours or longer as a guideline). To prevent screen burn, use a screen saver or switch displays periodically.
• Commercially available and recommended USB Hubs do not have the same specifications as the
NP-series PT. Normal operation may not be possible in environments subject to noise or static electricity. When using USB Hubs, be sure to provide sufficient measures to prevent noise and static
electricity, or install in a location that is not subject to noise or static electricity.
• Do not connect the USB connector to any device that is not applicable.
• Before connecting the USB connector to a device, make sure that the device is free of damage.
• Do not press the touch switch with a force greater than 30 N.
• Confirm the safety of the system before pressing touch switches.
• Signals from the touch switches may not be input if the switches are pressed consecutively at high
speed. Confirm each input before proceeding to the next one.
xiii
• Do not accidentally press touch switches when the backlight is not lit or when the display does not
appear.
• Do not operate the touch switches with tools including screwdriver.
• Touch panel resistance may change over time, causing the touch points to shift. Periodically perform
the calibration.
• Do not use benzene, paint thinner, or other volatile solvents, and do not use chemically treated
cloths.
• When mounting the Battery, be sure to use the correct Battery and mount it correctly.
• Do not attempt to disassemble or short-circuit the battery.
• Dispose of any battery that has been dropped on the floor or subjected to excessive shock.
• When replacing the battery, always backup data before turning off the power to the Unit. If the battery is removed, the data stored in the Unit will be deleted.
• Dispose of the Units and batteries according to local ordinances as they apply.
• The backlight in the Unit contains mercury. Do not dispose of the Unit together with waste to be processed at disposal plants. Dispose of the Unit according to all local laws, regulations, and ordinances.
• The backlights of the Units cannot be replaced by the user. Contact your nearest OMRON representative.
• The Unit may not be usable in locations subject to long-term exposure to oil or water. The gasket will
deteriorate after long-time use. Inspect the gasket on a regular basis. If deterioration is found, contact your OMRON representative.

Conforming Directive
The NP-series PTs conform to the EMC Directive.
EMC Directive Conformance
OMRON products are designed as electrical devices for use built into other devices or the overall
machine. As individual devices, they comply with the related EMC standards (see note) so that they
can more easily be built into other devices or the overall machine. The actual products have been
checked for conformity to EMC standards. Whether they 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 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 EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) standards are as follows:
EMS (Electromagnetic Susceptibility): EN 61131-2
EMI (Electromagnetic Interference): EN 61131-2 (Radiated emission: 10-m regulations)
Complying with EC Directives
NP-series PTs comply with EC Directives. Observe the following precautions to ensure that the customer's device and the overall machine also comply with EC Directives.
1. The PT is designed for installation inside a control panel. The PT must be installed within a control
panel.
2. Use reinforced insulation or double insulation for the DC power supply to the PT. Ensure that a stable power output can be provided even if a 10-ms interruption occurs at the input.
3. The PT conforms to the EN 61131-2, but the radiated emission characteristics (10-m regulations)
may vary depending on the configuration of the control panel used, other devices connected to the
control panel, wiring, and other conditions. You must therefore confirm that the overall machine or
equipment complies with EC Directives.
4. The NP-series PTs are Class A products. It may cause radio interference in residential areas, in
which case the user may be required to take adequate measures to reduce interference.

NP-series PT Functions and Operations
The NP Series offers advanced operator interfaces called Programmable Terminals that can be used to display required information and provide operating
capabilities for FA manufacturing sites. This section describes the role and
functions of the NP-series PTs for first-time users of Programmable Terminals.
1-1-1
PT Functions for FA Manufacturing Sites
Line Operating Status Monitor Display
NP-series PTs can be used to display information such as the operating status of the system and the devices. Graphs and other indicators can be used to
better represent the information and make it easy to understand.
Directions for FA Site Operators
The PTs can be used to inform the operators of system and device errors and
assist them in taking appropriate measures.
Control Panel Switches
The NP-series PTs allow the user to create various on-screen switches. By
using touch switch inputs, operating results can be sent to the host.

Communications with the Host
NP-series PTs allow the user to allocate words and bits in any PLC area for
use in accessing the required display contents and storing input data.
Operations that can be performed include reading and writing allocated word
contents and bit status directly, changing the display status of objects on the
PT screen, and controlling and providing notification of the PT status.
The NP-series PTs also enable communications with more than one PLC. A
host name is registered for each PLC connected, allowing access to any PLC
areas by specifying the host name and address.

• Host Link
1-2-1
What is an NT Link?
An NT Link is a method for high-speed communications between an OMRON
PLC and an OMRON Programmable Terminal (PT) using a special protocol.
In addition to a 1:1 NT Link, where a single PT is connected to a single PLC,
NP-series PTs also support 1:N NT Links, allowing up to eight PTs to be connected to a single PLC port.
CS/CJ-series and CP-series PLCs can also be connected using high-speed
1:N NT Link communications. For details on the PLCs that support highspeed 1:N NT Link communications, refer to Appendix E Standard Models.
In the rest of this manual, “NT Link” refers to NT Link communications in general, “1:1 NT Link” refers to an NT Link in a 1:1 configuration only, and “1:N NT
Links” refers to NT Links in a 1:N configuration only. Where necessary, “normal 1:N NT Links” and “high-speed 1:N NT Links” are used. When “1:N NT
Links” is used alone, it refers to both normal and high-speed communications.
1-2-2
Host Link
Host Link is a serial communications protocol for connecting an OMRON PT
1:1 to an OMRON host (a PLC) to read and write bits and words from the
host. Host Link communications connect a PT to many different PLCs.
1-2-3
Connecting to a Temperature Controller
OMRON EJ1 Modular Temperature Controllers can be connected with an RS485 connection.
Use serial port COM2.

1:1 Host Connection
Supported Host Units
Some models and series of OMRON PLCs have a built-in 1:1 NT Link function.
Some PLCs can also be connected in a 1:1 NT Link by adding a Serial Communications Board or Communications Board.
When connecting the PT to a PLC, check the series and model of the PLC
and the model of the Board mounted to the PLC.
Refer to Appendix E Standard Models for details on the Units that can be connected to NP-series PTs as hosts using RS-232C, RS-422A or RS-485 communications in a 1:1 NT Link.
Precautions
for Correct Use
Connecting to CPM2C
PLCs
CS/CJ series CPU Units cannot be connected in a 1:1 NT Link. Use a
1:1 connection through 1:N NT Links (normal or high speed). For
details, refer to 3-5 1:N Host Connection or 3-6 High-speed 1:N NT
Links.
The CPM2C has a single connector that is the same shape as a CS-series
peripheral port. Internally, the connector has signal lines that are for use with
the CPU's built-in RS-232C port and the peripheral port. Therefore, when
using the CPM2C, use the settings for the CPU's built-in RS-232C port or for
the peripheral port according to the converter cable and port used. When
using a CPM2C1-CIF21 Simplified Communications Unit, connect it to the
RS-232C port.
Refer to the CPM2C Operation Manual (W356) for details.
Use CS1W-CN118 Connecting Cable to connect the CPM2C to the NP-series
PT using the built-in RS-232C port of the CPM2C. The peripheral port cannot
be used to connect the PT.

Connecting to CPM2C PLCs
The CPM2C has a single connector that is the same shape as a CS-series
peripheral port. Internally, the connector has signal lines that are for use with
the CPU's built-in RS-232C port and the peripheral port. Therefore, when
using the CPM2C, use the settings for the CPU's built-in RS-232C port or for
the peripheral port according to the converter cable and port used. When
using a CPM2C-CIF21 Simplified Communications Unit, connect it to the RS232C port.
Refer to the CPM2C Operation Manual (W356) for details.

Section 6-5
Macro Function
GOTO
Goes to a specific Label without condition
Equation: GOTO LABEL Var1
When the PT executed the GOTO statement, the process goes to the Label
specified with Var1 and continues to execute the program.
Example:
Goes to the position of specified Label 2 without condition, and continues to
execute the program.
GOTO LABEL 2
.....
LABEL 2
LABEL
GOTO statement shifts the program execution to the position of LABEL without condition
Equation: LABEL Var1
Note: You cannot use the same label more than one time in a Macro.
Example:
Goes to the position of specified Label 2, and continues to execute the program.
GOTO LABEL 2
.....
LABEL 2
.....
If you use more than one Label 2, an error will occur to tell you it is invalid.
LABEL 2
.....
CALL..RET
Calls sub-macro program
Equation: CALL Var1
Var1 is the sub-macro number. The sub-macro number can be 001 to 512.
Var1 must be internal memory address or constant.
When the CALL command is executed, the process shifts to the sub-macro. If
the RET command is executed in the sub-macro program, the process returns
to the CALL source of the sub-macro. If there is not a RET command, after all
commands in the called sub-macro are executed, the RET command is automatically executed. In the sub-macro program, you can also call other submacro. But to keep sufficient memory, the levels for CALL sub-macro must be
less than 6 levels.
FOR...NEXT
Program Loop
Equation:
201
Section 6-5
Macro Function
FOR Var1
Statement
NEXT
You can use this command for nested loops. FOR is the start of the loop and
NEXT is the end of the loop. A maximum of five nested loops is possible. Var1
can be the internal memory or constant. When the PT executes this command, this command executes the number of times specified with Var1 Statement continuously. In the Statement, you can write a macro command that the
PT executes again and again. You can change Var1 value in the Statement,
but cannot change the number of times.
Example:
$10 = 10
$1 = 0
FOR $10
$1 = $1 + 1
$10 = 2
NEXT
After the operation, the result is $1 = 10, $10 = 2.
Note: You cannot change the loop times even when you reset the value in
$10.
END
Ends the macro
Equation:
Statemenets1
END
Statements2
This command ends the macro program. It executes the Statemenets1 and
then ends the macro executing. It does not execute the Statements2. If there
is END command in sub-macro, the program ends here.
Example:
$1 = 10
$1 = $1 + 1
END
$1 = $1 + 1
After the operation, the result is $1 = 11, not $1 = 12 as the END command
ended the macro program.

There are macros that are not synchronized with any screen events, such as
switching screens or pressing a switch: Project Resident Macro, Project Periodic Macro, and Screen Periodic Macro. If communications commands that
access communications buffers (PUTCHARS(), GETCHARS(), or
CLEARCOMBUFFER()) are placed in any of these macros, the communications buffers may be read or written at unexpected timing. This may conflict
with commands in other macros, causing incorrect data to be read or causing
data to be corrupted by being overwritten. When combining macros that are
not synchronized with any screen events or when combining a macro that is
not synchronized with a screen event with another type of macro, place any
commands that access the communications buffers into one macro.
INITCOM
After you set each COM port, this command starts communication.
It stores the result in Var1.

CHRCHKSUM
Calculates the ASCII data of the string, character length and checksum.
Equation:Var1 = CHRCHKSUM(Var2, Var3, Var4)
208
Section 6-5
Macro Function
Var1: The internal memory address where the character length of ASCII data
of Var2 + data length of checksum is stored.
Var2: The string of text.
Var3: The internal memory address where the ASCII data of Var2 and checksum is stored.
Var4: The data length of the checksum that stores in Var3. 1 represents byte
and 2 represents word.
Operation of checksum:
Converts format of each data characters to ASCII code and adds them up. For
example, when '1' is converted to ASCII code '31H' and '4' is converted to
ASCII code '34H', the checksum is 31H + 34H = 65H.
Example:
Calculates the ASCII data of 14, data length and checksum.
$0 = CHRCHKSUM(“14”, $10, 2)
After the above operation, it stores 4 in $0. 4 represents that 2 bytes (ASCII
data length) + 2 bytes (data length of checksum) = 4 bytes. The checksum
that is stored in $10 is 65H.

Error Messages
The Output Window shows errors after validation.
■
Error Messages While You Edit
Code − 100: LABEL cannot be found
There is no LABEL that GOTO specifies.
Code − 101: Recursion occurs
This error message usually shows in sub-macro. The function of a sub-macro
to call is called recursion whether the PT calls it directly or not. The sub-macro
does not usually use recursion. As an alternative for it, you can use GOTO or
FOR (infinite times).
Code − 102: More than 3 nested FOR is used
This error message tells you not to use more than 3 nested FOR commands
to keep sufficient memory. As an alternative for it, you can use GOTO or IF.
Code − 103: Sub-macro does not exist
This error message tells you that there is no sub-macro in the program. For
example, CALL 5 means CALL sub-macro 5. This error message shows when
you do not edit sub-macro 5 in the program. This message shows to make
sure that there are no errors. These errors include input error and absence of
related sub-macro.
Code − 104: Number of NEXT is less than the number of FOR
The number of NEXT and FOR commands must be the same. This error code
shows when the number of NEXT commands is less than that of FOR commands.
Code − 105: Number of FOR is less than the number of NEXT
The number of FOR and NEXT commands must be the same. This error code
shows when the number of FOR commands is less than that of NEXT commands.
Code − 106: Repeated LABEL
This error message shows to tell you that one macro has the same LABEL
more than one time. It shows during validation. If you use the same LABEL
more than one time, the program does not operate correctly.
Code − 107: There is RET in Macro
This error message tells you that there is RET command in macro. To return
program, you can use RET command in sub-macro. But in macro, you must
use END.

PT Macro Error Messages
The user can read error messages by macro.
212
Section 6-5
Macro Function
Code − 10: GOTO Error
This message tells you that there is GOTO error in macro.
Code − 11: Stack Overflow
This message tells you that stack in macro is full. This can occur if you use too
many sub-macros or execute different macros at the same time. This message shows to keep sufficient memory.
Code − 12: CALL Empty Sub-macro
This message tells you that there is a CALL sub-macro error. The sub-macro
that is called must not be an empty sub-macro. This message shows to prevent an unexpected error.
Code − 13: Data Read Error
This message tells you that there is a data read error. This can occur if there
is a memory data error, but usually it occurs if there is a host data read error.
Code − 14: Data Write Error
This message tells you that there is a data write error. This can occur if there
is a memory data error, but usually it occurs if there is a host data write error.
Code − 15: Divisor is 0
This error message tells you that the divisor is 0 when you do division operation.

Control Block
When you set the host address and size in Control Block, the host can control
an NP-series PT. The control area consists of continuous word addresses.
The length is between 0 and 8 words. The length can change if the function
that you use on screen data changes. For example, for the Data Log function,
a minimum of 5 words is necessary. When the size of Control Block is 0, the
Control Block function is disabled. When the Control Block function is
enabled, the host can control the PT. For details on settings, refer to 6-6-3
Settings.

X
For example, if $n = m; $m = X; then *$n = X. The value of m must not be
more than 65535.
■
Data Block Number Address (R/W): RCPNO
You can specify the data block group. The minimum data block group number
must be 1. When you edit the data block, you set the maximum group number.
When you upload/download data to the PT or PLC, the PT or PLC uses the
setting of data block number address to read/write the data of data block
group. When you edit the data block, you set the size of each group of data
block. The NP-series PT has a space of 64k words for the data block.
■
Data Block Address (R/W): RCP
The data block size is L and the data block group number is N.
Word access:
RCPn (n: 0 to NxL+(L-1))
Bit access:
RCPn.b (n: 0 to NxL+(L-1), b: 0 to 15)
The data block address saves the data block that you uploaded from the PT
after you exit the NP-Designer.
There are two methods to read/write these addresses:
Assume that the set data block size is L and the data block group number is
N:
Use one of two methods below to access data that are set with data block.
1. Use RCPNO and RCP0 to RCP(L-1)
2. Use the equation: RCP{n×L+(m-1)}
Example of how to access data:
Setting the size L to 2 and the number of groups N to 3 with the data block.
224
Section 6-7

Handling the Shield on RS-422A/485 Cables
Perform the following procedures to connect, process the shield, and connect to ground for communications
using RS-422A or RS-485.
Connecting the Ground Wire
The PT has a functional ground terminal (FG:
).
1. Ground according to Figure (a) for normal grounding.
• Connect the ground terminal (GR) of the devices to the functional ground (FG:
).
Make sure that each signal line is grounded at only one point and ground to 100 W max.
• Short the LG terminal of the PLC to the ground terminal (GR).
• Use a wire gauge of at least 2 mm2 for the ground wire.
• Refer to the manual for individual Communications Units for details on proper wiring procedures.
2. Do not ground the functional ground (FG:
) of the PT if it is mounted to the same panel as devices that
generate noise, such as motors or inverters, as shown in Figure (b).
Precautions
for Safe Use
Ground correctly to prevent the PT from malfunctioning due to noise.
Preparing the Shield of RS-422A/485 Connectors
Always prepare RS-422A/485 cable shields properly.
Ground only one end of the shield when connecting the ground terminal (GR) of the devices to the functional
ground (FG:
), and grounding each signal line at only one point and to 100 W max, as shown in Figure (a).
Ground both ends of the shield when not grounding the functional ground (FG:
ure (b).
Precautions
for Safe Use
) of the PT, as shown in Fig-
Process the cable shields correctly to prevent the PT from malfunctioning due to
noise.
