Safety Measures
Safety Measures
FP0R User's Manual
1.1 Safety Measures
Operating environment
After installing the unit, make sure to use it within the range of the general specifications:

Ambient temperature: 0°C–+55°C

Ambient humidity: 10%–95% RH (at 25°C non-condensing)

Pollution level: 2

Do not use the unit in the following environments:
-
Direct sunlight
-
Sudden temperature changes causing condensation
-
Inflammable or corrosive gases
-
Excessive airborne dust, metal particles or salts
-
Benzine, paint thinner, alcohol or other organic solvents or strong alkaline
solutions such as ammonia or caustic soda
-
Direct vibration, shock or direct drop of water
-
Influence from power transmission lines, high voltage equipment, power cables,
power equipment, radio transmitters, or any other equipment that would generate
high switching surges. Maintain at least 100mm of space between these devices
and the unit.
Static electricity

Before touching the unit or equipment, always touch some grounded metal to
discharge any static electricity you may have generated (especially in dry locations).
The discharge of static electricity can damage parts and equipment.
Protection of power supply

Use a twisted power supply wire.

Isolate the wiring systems to the CPU, input/output devices, and mechanical power
apparatus.

An insulated power supply with an internal protective circuit should be used (FP0PSA2 or FP-PS24-050). The power supply for the CPU is a non-insulated circuit, so if
an incorrect voltage is directly applied, the internal circuit may be damaged or


If using a power supply device without an internal protective circuit, always make sure
power is supplied to the unit through a protective element such as a fuse.

Be sure to supply power to a CPU and an expansion unit from the same power supply,
and turn the power on and off simultaneously for both.

and output. If the power supply for input and output is turned off first, the CPU will
detect the input fluctuations and may begin an unexpected operation.
Before turning on the power
When turning on the power for the first time, be sure to take the precautions given below.

During installation, check that there are no scraps of wiring, particularly conductive
fragments, adhering to the unit.

Verify that the power supply wiring, I/O wiring, and power supply voltage are all
correct.

Sufficiently tighten the installation and terminal screws.

Set the mode selector to PROG mode.

Request concerning program storage
To prevent the accidental loss of programs, the user should consider the following measures:

Backing up programs. To avoid accidentally losing programs, destroying files, or
overwriting the contents of a file, documents should be printed out and then saved.

Specifying the password carefully. The password setting is designed to avoid
programs being accidentally overwritten. If the password is forgotten, however, it will
be impossible to overwrite the program even if you want to. Also, if a password is
forcibly bypassed, the program is deleted. Therefore, please note the password in a
safe location.

FP0R User's Manual
2.1 Features
The FP0R is an ultra compact PLC (programmable logic controller) with high-speed
processing capabilities and a large memory capacity. The controller uses the comprehensive
FP instruction set and is programmed with FPWIN Pro or FPWIN GR. With FPWIN Pro,
programming according to IEC 61131-3 is possible.
USB 2.0 TOOL port (see page 87)
The TOOL port supports USB2.0 full speed and enables ultra high-speed communication with
programming tools. Since large programs with up to 32k steps can now be downloaded in as
fast as 5s, the USB port enables more efficient program development.
Separate large-capacity comment memory
The unit's comment memory area is separate from the program area, and can store I/O
comments for 100 000 points. Program management and maintenance is easy. Thanks to the
separate comment area, programs can now be developed without concern for comment
memory capacity.
Positioning control using high-speed counter and pulse output (see page 160)
A high-speed counter and a pulse output function are provided as standard features.

Additional unit with battery free backup function (F32 type) (see page 32)
The F32 type offers a battery-free automatic backup function for all operation memories
(internal relays, data registers, timers/counters). Maintainability has been significantly
improved, as there is no need to change a battery.

Extended online editing functions
Additional functions now ensure that programs can be corrected without stopping the system.
The online edit mode is no longer limited to 512 steps. Instead, entire programs can be
downloaded to the program memory during RUN mode. Project information is written to the
comment memory. Please refer to the FPWIN Pro online help for detailed information.
Enhanced security (see page 201)
The FP0R supports 8-digit passwords (alphanumeric), and offers an upload protection
function as well as security functions for the FP Memory Loader.
FP0 compatibility (see page 14)
The FP0 compatibility mode enables programs that have been used on an existing FP0 to be
activated on the FP0R with no further modifications. Also, since both units have an identical
shape and terminal layout, there is no need to check the installation space or change the
wiring.

2.5 FP0 Program Compatibility
For programs used on the existing FP0 to be used on the FP0R, they must either:
1. conform to FP0R specifications, or
2. be executed in FP0 compatibility mode
Using programs that conform to FP0R specifications
This allows you to make maximum use of FP0R performance and functions. However, the
following modifications to the FP0 program are required:
1. Change the PLC type from FP0 to FP0R.
2. Since the system registers will be initialized when the PLC type is changed,
reconfigure the system registers if necessary.
3. Modify the programs according to the FP0R specifications if necessary.
Executing programs in FP0 compatibility mode
The FP0 compatibility mode allows you to use existing FP0 programs as they stand. For items
such as program capacity, operation memory and available instructions, the same
specifications apply as for the FP0.
To enter the FP0 compatibility mode, use your programming tool to download the FP0
programs. A confirmation message will appear, and the mode will automatically change to the
FP0 compatibility mode. The FP0 program may either have been uploaded from an FP0 or it
may have been created on an FP0R in FP0 mode (PLC type is FP0).
The FP0 compatibility mode is supported by FPWIN Pro V6.10 or higher, and FPWIN GR
V2.80 or higher.
For an FP0 program to be able to run in FP0 compatibility mode, the PLC types (C10, C14,
C16, C32, and T32) must match exactly. FP0 compatibility mode is not available for the F32
type FP0R.
In most respects, the FP0 programs do not need to be modified to be executable in FP0
compatibility mode. Please note, however, the following differences between the
specifications, and change the programs as necessary:
1. P13_EPWT, EEPROM write instruction
The execution times for this instruction will vary, depending on the number of write
blocks.

5. F169_PulseOutput_Jog, JOG operation
There are two differences between the FP0 and the FP0R specifications:

Overview
FP0R User's Manual
counting".
Pulse width specification: In the FP0 compatibility mode, the duty ratio is fixed at 25%.
Differing settings in the FP0 programs will be ignored.
6. F168_PulseOutput_Home, Home return
In FP0 compatibility mode, the elapsed value is counted during home return
operations. With the FP0, the elapsed value is indefinite. In both cases, the elapsed
value will be reset to 0 when home return has been completed.
7. Real number calculation process
Since the accuracy of real number calculation has been improved, the calculation
results obtained in the FP0 compatibility mode may differ from the results obtained in
the existing FP0 program.
8. If the secondary battery installed in the T32 type is out of charge, the next power-on
process will be different:
FP0: The value in the hold area of the data memory will be unstable.
FP0 compatibility mode: The value in the hold area of the data memory will be cleared
to 0.
9. The sampling trace function is not available in FP0 compatibility mode.

3.5 Backup and Clock/Calendar Functions
3.5 Backup and Clock/Calendar Functions
The FP0R-T32 CPU is equipped with a secondary battery (charging type). This battery makes
it possible to use:

additional hold areas for data registers or other data

the clock/calendar function
The FP0R-F32 CPU has a built-in FRAM, which allows saving all data without a backup
battery. The FP0R-F32 type does not offer a clock/calendar function.
Charging the battery
The built-in backup battery is not charged when the unit is shipped. Charge the battery
sufficiently before use.
Charging time for full charge: 72 hours (at an ambient temperature of 25°C)
The battery will be charged automatically when the DC power is supplied to the CPU.
The number of days the backup battery remains effective (backup time) depends on the
charging time. If the battery has been fully charged (72 hours at an ambient temperature of
25°C), the battery will function for approx. 50 days.

3.5.1 Backup Function
Additional hold areas which will be saved with a backup battery (FP0R-T32) or with the built-in
FRAM (FP0R-F32) can be specified for the following memory areas:

Timers/Counter (T/C)

Internal relays (R)

Data registers (DT)

Step ladders
Programs and system register settings will be held in the internal ROM regardless of the builtin backup battery.
Specifying hold areas
If no settings are made in system registers 6 to 14, the default address ranges will be saved
when the PLC is turned off. To save additional hold areas, follow the procedure below.
1.
2.
3.
Procedure
1. Double-click "PLC" in the navigator
2. Double-click "System Registers"
32
FP0R User's Manual
3.5 Backup and Clock/Calendar Functions
3. Double-click "Hold On/Off"
CAUTION
If the battery is empty and additional hold areas have been defined, the
hold/non-hold operation becomes unstable. The data value will become
indefinite. It is cleared to 0 the next time the power is turned on.
Do not forget to monitor the battery status or to reset the hold areas to the
default values if no battery is used.
An empty battery status is indicated by the following:

Special internal relays R9005 and R9006 will turn to TRUE if the battery voltage
drops. The relays can be evaluated using the system variables
sys_bIsBatteryErrorHold and sys_bIsBatteryErrorNonHold.

The ERROR/ALARM LED will flash if the battery voltage drops.
We recommend adding a program for clearing the data to 0 when the values in the hold areas
become indefinite.
3.5.2 Clock/Calendar Function
As the initial clock/calendar values are unstable, write the values using a programming tool.
3.5.2.1 Memory Area for Clock/Calendar Function
With the clock/calendar function, clock and calendar data stored in special data registers
DT90053 to DT90057 can be read and used in sequence programs. To access special data
registers and special internal relays, use the PLC-independent system variables.

3.5.2.2 Settings for Clock/Calendar Function
The clock/calendar values are backed up using a battery. Therefore, the clock/calendar
function cannot be used unless a battery has been installed
There are no default clock/calendar settings, so the programming tool or another means must
be used to specify these values. There are two ways to set the clock/calendar function:
Using the programming software
1. Online  Online Mode or
2. Monitor  Display Special Registers  Calendar Functions
3. Enter the desired date and time values
Confirm each value with [Enter].
Using a program
1. The date/time values are written to special data registers DT90054 to DT90057.
2. A value of 16#8000 is written to DT90058.
NOTE

The values can be set using the rising edge signal “P” or by changing
16#8000 to 16#0000.

To access special data registers and special internal relays, use the PLCindependent system variables. You can insert system variables directly into
the POU body: Use the "Variables" dialog without entering a declaration in
the POU header. Please refer to the FPWIN Pro online help for detailed
information on using system variables.

To set the clock/calendar, you can also use the instruction SET_RTC_DT.
Please refer to the FPWIN Pro online help for details and a programming
example.
EXAMPLE
Set the time to 12:00:00 on the 5th day when X0 turns to TRUE. In this example, the
values of DT90054, DT90055, and DT90058 are written using system variables.

6.3 Safety Instructions for Wiring
In certain applications, malfunction may occur for the following reasons:

Power ON timing differences between the PLC system and input/output or motorized
devices

A response time lag when a momentary power drop occurs

Abnormality in the PLC, external power supply circuit, or other devices
In order to prevent a malfunction that results in a system shutdown, choose the adequate
safety measures listed below:
Interlock circuit
When a motor's clockwise/counter-clockwise operation is controlled, provide an interlock
circuit that prevents clockwise and counter-clockwise signals from being input into the motor
at the same time.
Emergency stop circuit
Provide an emergency stop circuit externally to turn off the power supply of controlled devices
in order to prevent a system shutdown or an irreparable accident if a malfunction occurs.
Start-up sequence
The PLC should be operated only after all of the field devices are energized. To ensure this
sequence, the following measures are recommended:

Turn ON the PLC with the operation mode selector set to PROG mode, and then
switch to RUN mode

Program the PLC so as to disregard the inputs and outputs until the field devices are
energized
NOTE
When stopping the operation of the PLC, also have the input/output devices
turned off after the PLC has stopped operating.
Grounding
When installing the PLC next to devices that generate high voltages from switching, such as
inverters, do not ground them together. Use an exclusive ground for each device.
Momentary power failures
The FP0R continues to operate normally for a certain period of time in case of a momentary
power failure. We call this the momentary power off time. However, if the power failure
exceeds this period of time, operation depends on the combination of units, the power supply
voltage, etc. In some cases, operation mirrors a power supply reset.
For the momentary power off time values, see "General Specifications" on page 224.
64
FP0R User's Manual
6.3 Safety Instructions for Wiring
Protection of power supply

An insulated power supply with an internal protective circuit should be used (FP0PSA2 or FP-PS24-050). The power supply for the CPU is a non-insulated circuit, so if
an incorrect voltage is directly applied, the internal circuit may be damaged or
destroyed.

If using a power supply device without an internal protective circuit, always make sure
power is supplied to the unit through a protective element such as a fuse.
Protection of output sections
If current exceeding the nominal switching capacity is being supplied in the form of a motor
lock current or a coil shorting in an electromagnetic device, a protective element such as a
fuse should be attached externally.

To protect the system against faulty voltages from the power supply line,
use an insulated power supply with an internal protective circuit.

The regulator on the unit is a non-insulated type.

If using a power supply device without an internal protective circuit, always
make sure power is supplied to the unit through a protective element such
as a fuse.

first, the CPU will detect the input fluctuations and may begin an
unexpected operation.

Be sure to supply power to a CPU and an expansion unit from the same
power supply, and turn the power on and off simultaneously for both.

6.4.1 Grounding
If necessary, ground the instrument to increase the noise resistance.
NOTE

For grounding purposes, use wiring with a minimum of 2mm2. The
grounding connection should have a resistance of less than 100.

The point of grounding should be as close to the PLC as possible. The
ground wire should be as short as possible.

If two devices share a single ground point, it may produce an adverse
effect. Always use an exclusive ground for each device.

Risk of short circuits
Depending on the surroundings in which the equipment is used, grounding may cause
problems.
Example 1:
Since the power supply line of the FP0 expansion unit (24V DC and 0V terminal) is connected
to the function earth through a varistor, the varistor may be shorted if there is an irregular
potential between the power supply line and function earth. (The power supply line of the
FP0R is connected to function earth through a high-voltage capacitor. Therefore, there is no
risk of a short-circuit.)

Example 2:
Do not ground the function earth terminal of the FP0R when grounding a plus terminal (+) of
the power supply.
In some computers, the SG terminal of the RS232C port is connected with the connector
shielding. Also, the FP0R TOOL port shielding is connected with the function earth terminal

NOTE

Separate the input/output wires from the power and high voltage wires by at
least 100mm.

Be sure to select the thickness (diameter) of the input and output wires
while taking into consideration the required current capacity.

Arrange the wiring so that the input and output wiring are separated and so
that these wirings are separated from the power wiring as much as
possible. Do not route them through the same duct or wrap them up
together.

7.1.4 PLC Link
PLC Link is an economic way of linking PLCs using a twisted-pair cable and the MEWNET
protocol. Data is shared with all PLCs by means of dedicated internal relays called link relays
(L) and data registers called link registers (LD). The statuses of the link relays and link
registers of one PLC are automatically fed back to the other PLCs on the same network. The
link relays and link registers of the PLCs contain areas for sending and areas for receiving
data. Station numbers and link areas are allocated using the system registers.
EXAMPLE
Link relay L0 for station #1 turns to TRUE. The status change is fed back to the
programs of the other stations, and Y0 of the other stations is set to TRUE. A
constant of 100 is written to link register LD0 of station #1. The contents of LD0 in the
other stations are also changed to a constant of 100.

7.5 MEWTOCOL-COM
7.5.1 Operation Outline for MEWTOCOL-COM Slave
Instructions issued by the computer to the PLC are called commands. Messages sent back to
the computer from the PLC are called responses. When the PLC receives a command, it
processes the command regardless of the sequence program, and sends a response back to
the computer. Communication is carried out in a conversational format, based on the
MEWTOCOL-COM communication procedures. Data is sent in ASCII format. The computer
has the first right of transmission. The right of transmission shifts back and forth between the
computer and the PLC each time a message is sent.

Station number
The station number of the slave to which you want to send the command must be specified.
The range is 01 to 99 (decimal).
In 1:1 communication, the station number "01" (ASCII code: 16#3031) should be specified.

The content differs depending on the command. The content should be noted in all upper-case characters,
following the fixed formula for the particular command.
The method for writing text segments in the message varies depending on the type of command.

Check code
Hexadecimal block check code (BCC) for error detection using horizontal parity. The BCC should be
created so that it targets all of the text data from the header to the last text character.
The BCC starts from the header and checks each character in sequence, using the exclusive OR operation,
and replaces the final result with character text. It is normally part of the calculation program and is created
automatically.
The parity check can be skipped by entering "* *" (ASCII code: 16#2A2A) instead of the BCC.

Sending the data using the instruction F159_MTRN
NOTE
F159_MTRN allows multiple communication ports to be accommodated. This
instruction is an updated version of F144_TRNS. Both instructions are
compatible with all PLCs: PLCs with multiple communication ports will compile
F144_TRNS s, n to F159_MTRN s_Start, n_Number, d_Port*=1. PLCs with only
one communication port will compile F159_MTRN to F144_TRNS s, n.
1. Setting the communication parameters (see "Setting Communication Parameters" on
page 111)
2. Generating the data in the send buffer
To generate the data in the send buffer, define a variable in the program and copy the data to
the send buffer using a transfer instruction, e.g. F10_BKMV.
The storage area for the data to be sent starts with the second word of the send buffer (offset
1). Offset 0 contains the number of bytes to be sent.

The first word of the send buffer (offset 0) is reserved for the number of bytes to be sent.
Therefore, copy the data into offset 1 (SendBuffer[1]).
When sending begins (the execution condition for F159_MTRN turns to TRUE), the value in
offset 0 is set to 8. At the end of transmission, the value in offset 0 is automatically reset to 0.
The data in offset 1 to offset 4 is sent in order from the low order byte.

FP0R User's Manual
7.6 Program Controlled Communication
The first two words of a string contain the string header information (maximum number of
characters and the current number of characters). The string header must not be copied into
the buffer. Therefore, enter an offset of 2 to the starting address of the string before copying
the data.
Make sure that the send buffer is big enough for all the data to be sent. To determine its size
you must take into account that two characters of the string SendString can be copied into
each element of the array SendBuffer. SendBuffer[0] is reserved for the total number of
bytes to be sent by F159_MTRN.
3. Sending the data using the instruction F159_MTRN
Execute F159_MTRN to
-
specify the amount of data to be sent
-
specify the communication port to be used
-
output the data from the communication port to the external device.
When the execution condition of F159_MTRN turns to TRUE and the "transmission done" flag
is TRUE, transmission starts. (For details on flag operation, see page 121.)
When sending data, operation is as follows:
-
The number of bytes to be sent is set in offset 0 of the send buffer.
-
The "transmission done" flag turns to FALSE.
-
The data in the send buffer is sent starting with the low order byte in offset 1.
-
The start and end codes specified in the system registers are automatically added
to the data sent.
-
During transmission, F159_MTRN cannot be executed again.
-
The "reception done" flag turns to FALSE.
-
The number of bytes received is set to 0 in offset 0 of the receive buffer.
-
Data received is written into the receive buffer
When the specified number of bytes has been sent, the "transmission done" flag turns to
TRUE. The end code is automatically added to the data sent. At the end of transmission, the
value in offset 0 is automatically reset to 0.
EXAMPLE
Transmit the characters "ABCDEFGH" to an external device connected to COM port 1. For

any further data is prohibited. The "reception done" flag only turns to TRUE if an end
code, e.g. CR, has been selected in the system registers.
3. Processing the data in the receive buffer

Verify the end of reception.

Copy the data in the receive buffer to a target area defined in the program using a
117
Communication
FP0R User's Manual
transfer instruction, e.g. F10_BKMV.
NOTE
For details on the operation of the "reception done" flag, see page 121
4. Preparing the system for the reception of further data
In order to receive the next data, reset the receive buffer. This is done automatically when
sending the next data with F159_MTRN:

Resetting the receive buffer sets the number of bytes received in offset 0 to 0 and
moves the write pointer back to offset 1. Subsequent data will be stored in the receive
buffer starting at offset 1. (The receive buffer is not cleared).

The "reception done" flag turns to FALSE.
To reset the receive buffer without sending further data, execute F159_MTRN with n_Number
= 0.
EXAMPLE
Receive a string of 8 bytes containing the characters "ABCDEFGH" via COM port 1. The
characters are stored in ASCII HEX code without start and end codes.

FP0R User's Manual
7.6 Program Controlled Communication
System register settings:
In order to use the data in the receive buffer, define a global variable having the same starting
address and capacity. In this example, the starting address is 200 (VAR_GLOBAL
ReceivedData) and the receive buffer capacity is 5 (ARRAY [0..4] OF WORD).

Data can be received when the "reception done" flag is FALSE. The "reception done" flag is
evaluated by the system variable sys_bIsComPort1ReceptionDone. When the reception of the
119
Communication
FP0R User's Manual
data is complete (the end code has been received), the "reception done" flag turns to TRUE,
and subsequently, receiving data is prohibited. To prepare the system to receive the next data
without immediately sending further data, the receive buffer is reset by executing F159_MTRN
with n_Number = 0.
NOTE

The status of the "reception done" flag may change while a scan is being
carried out. For example, if the flag is used more than once as an input
condition, different statuses may exist within one scan. To ensure proper
execution of the program, the status of the special internal relay should be
copied to a variable at the beginning of the program.

The start code "STX" resets the receive buffer. Resetting the receive buffer
sets the number of bytes received in offset 0 to 0 and moves the write
pointer back to offset 1. Subsequent data will be stored in the receive buffer
starting at offset 1.

For details on the format of the data in the send buffer and in the receive
buffer, please see "Data Format" on page 120.
7.6.4 Data Format
Remember the following when accessing data in the send and receive buffers:
120

The format of the data in the send buffer depends on the data type of the transmission
data (e.g. STRING) and on the conversion function used in the PLC program (e.g.
F95_ASC). There is no conversion when data in the send buffer is sent.

The start and end codes specified in the system registers are automatically added to
the data sent. The start code is added at the beginning, the end code at the end of the
send string. Do not include start or end codes in the send string.

The format of the data in the receive buffer depends on the data format used by the
external device. Use a conversion function to convert the data into the desired format,
e.g. F27_AHEX.

Start and end codes in the data received are recognized if the corresponding start and
end codes have been specified in the system registers. Start and end codes are not
stored in the receive buffer. The end code serves as a reception done condition, i.e.,
the "reception done" flag turns to TRUE when the end code is received. The start code
resets the receive buffer.

If "None" is selected for the start code, a start code is not added to the data sent and
is not recognized in the data received. Without start code, the receive buffer can only
be reset by executing F159_MTRN.

If "None" is selected for the end code, an end code is not added to the data sent and
is not recognized in the data received. Without end code, the "reception done" flag
does not turn to TRUE. The end of reception can only be determined by a time-out
using the IsReceptionDoneByTimeOut function or by evaluating the data in the receive
buffer.
FP0R User's Manual
7.6 Program Controlled Communication
Different end code settings for sending and receiving
Sometimes you do not want to send an end code, but need an end code in the data received
to set the "reception done" flag to TRUE. In this case, select the desired end code in the
system registers and execute F159_MTRN specifying a negative number for n_Number.
EXAMPLE
Send 4 bytes of data without adding an end code:
POU Header
LD Body
ST Body
7.6.5 Flag Operation
Program controlled communication provides for half duplex communication, i.e.
communication is possible in both directions, but not simultaneously. Sending can be
controlled by the "transmission done" flag. Reception can be controlled by the "reception
done" flag or by directly evaluating the receive buffer.
The flags are special internal relays which turn to TRUE or to FALSE under specific
conditions. They can be evaluated using special functions or system variables.
"Reception done" flag
When the end code is received, the "reception done" flag turns to TRUE. Reception of any
further data is prohibited. F159_MTRN turns the "reception done" flag to FALSE.
The "reception done" flag can be evaluated using the IsReceptionDone function. Or use the
system variable sys_bIsComPort1ReceptionDone or sys_bIsToolPortReceptionDone,
depending on the port. The end of reception can also be determined by time-out using the
IsReceptionDoneByTimeOut function or by checking the contents of the receive buffer.

FP0R User's Manual
The status of the "reception done" flag may change while a scan is being carried out. For
example, if the flag is used more than once as an input condition, different statuses may exist

7.7 PLC Link
PLC Link is an economic way of linking PLCs using a twisted-pair cable and the MEWNET
protocol. Data is shared with all PLCs by means of dedicated internal relays called link relays
(L) and data registers called link registers (LD). The statuses of the link relays and link
registers of one PLC are automatically fed back to the other PLCs on the same network. The
link relays and link registers of the PLCs contain areas for sending and areas for receiving
data. Station numbers and link areas are allocated using the system registers.

7.7.2.3 Partial Use of Link Areas
In the link areas available for PLC link, link relays with a total of 1024 points (64 words) and
link registers with a total of 128 words can be used. This does not mean, however, that it is
necessary to reserve the entire area. Parts of the area which have not been reserved can be
used as internal relays and internal registers.

7.7.2.4 Precautions for Allocating Link Areas
A mistake in the link area allocation will cause an error, and communication will be disabled.
Avoid overlapping send areas
When sending data from the send area to the receive area of another PLC, send and receive
areas must match. In the example shown below, there is an overlapping area between units
no. 2 and 3, and this will cause an error, so that communication cannot be carried out.

7.7.3 Setting the Highest Station Number for a PLC Link
Station numbers should be set sequentially and consecutively, starting from 1, with no breaks
between them. If there is a missing station number, or if there is a station for which the power
supply has not been turned on, the response time for the PLC link (the link transmission cycle
time) will be longer (see page 146).
If there are fewer than 16 stations linked, set the highest station number to reduce the link
transmission cycle time. (The default value is 16.) Set the same value for all PLCs in the link.
The highest station number is set using system register no. 47 for PLC link 0 or system
register no. 57 for PLC link 1.

7.7.4 PLC Link 0 and 1 Allocation Setting
The default setting of system register 46 (PLC Link 0 and 1 allocation setting) is "Normal".
This means that the unit which is closest to the CPU uses PLC link 0 and the unit which is
further away uses PLC link 1. To reverse this behavior, select "Reverse". In the example
below, selecting "Reverse" for the PLCs in PLC link 1 (B) has the advantage that the user
does not have to make any address conversions between these PLCs and the MCU. Instead,
the same numbers may be used for all PLCs in the link.

NOTE

In the description, "stations that have been added" refers to stations which
are connected between station no. 1 and the highest station number and for
which the power supply has been turned on.

Comparing examples 2 and 3, the transmission cycle time is longer if there
is one station that has not been added to the link. As a result the PLC link
response time is longer.

The SYS1 instruction can be used to minimize the transmission cycle time
even if there are one or more stations that have not been added to the link.
7.7.6.1 Reducing Transmission Cycle Times
If there are stations that have not been added to the link, the link addition processing time
(Tlk) and with this the transmission cycle time will be longer.
T max. = Ts1 + Ts2 + • • • • • • • + Tsn + Tlt + Tso + Tlk
Tlk = Tlc + Twt + Tls + Tso
Tlk= link addition processing time
Tlc = link addition command sending time
Twt = addition waiting time
Tls = link error stop command sending time
Tso = master station scan time
With the SYS1 instruction, the link addition waiting time (Twt) in the above formula can be
reduced. Thus, SYS1 can be used to minimize the increase in the transmission cycle time.
EXAMPLE
Set SYS1 to change the waiting time for a link to be added to the PLC link from the
default value of 400ms to 100ms.

NOTE

If there are any stations that have not been added to the link, the setting
should not be changed as long as a longer link transmission cycle time
does not cause any problems.

The SYS1 instruction should be executed at the beginning of the program,
at the rise of R9014. The same waiting time should be set for all linked
PLCs.

The waiting time should be set to a value of at least twice the maximum
scan time for any of the PLCs connected to the link.

If a short waiting time has been set, there may be PLCs that cannot be
added to the link even if their power supply is on. (The shortest time that
can be set is 10ms.)
7.7.6.2 Error Detection Time for Transmission Assurance Relays
If the power supply of any given PLC fails or is turned off, it takes (as a default value) 6.4
seconds for the transmission assurance relay of that PLC to be turned off at the other
stations. This time period can be shortened using the SYS1 instruction.
EXAMPLE
Set SYS1 to change the time that the PLC link transmission assurance is off from the
default value of 6.4s to 100ms.
LD Body
150
NOTE

The setting should not be changed as long as a longer transmission
assurance relay detection time does not cause any problems.
FP0R User's Manual
7.7 PLC Link

The SYS1 instruction should be executed at the beginning of the program,
at the rise of R9014. The same waiting time should be set for all linked
PLCs.

The time should be set to a value of at least twice the maximum
transmission cycle time when all of the PLCs are connected to the link.

If a short time has been set, the transmission assurance relay may not
function properly. (The shortest time that can be set is 100ms.)

Communication
FP0R User's Manual
7.8 Modbus RTU Communication
The Modbus RTU protocol enables the communication between the FP0R and other devices
(including the Panasonic FP-e PLCs, touch terminals of the GT series and KT temperature
controllers). The master station sends instructions (command messages) to the slave stations
and the slave stations respond (send response messages) based on the instructions received.
The master station has read and write access to a maximum number of 99 slave stations.

8.1 Overview
Three built-in hardware extensions allow the FP0R to be used for positioning control and
measurement: high-speed counting, pulse output, and PWM (pulse-width modulation) output.
High-speed counter function
The high-speed counter function counts external inputs such as those from sensors or
encoders. When the count reaches the target value, this function turns the desired output to
TRUE or to FALSE.

Counting Range
The counting range of the built-in high-speed counter is from -2 147 483 648 to 2 147 483 647
(32-bit binary number).
The high-speed counter is a ring counter. Consequently, if the counted value exceeds the
maximum value, the counter returns to the minimum value. Similarly, if the counted value
drops below the minimum value, the counter goes back to the maximum value and continues
counting from there.

8.3.4.1 Writing the High-Speed Counter Control Code
The special data register where the high-speed counter and pulse output control code are
stored can be accessed with the system variable sys_wHscOrPulseControlCode. (The system
variable sys_wHscOrPulseControlCode corresponds to special data register DT90052.)
The control code settings for each channel can be monitored using the system variables
sys_wHscChannelxControlCode or sys_wPulseChannelxControlCode (where x=channel
number). The settings of this system variable remain unchanged until another setting
operation is executed.
Operations performed by the high-speed counter control code:

Clearing high-speed counter instructions (bit 3)

Enabling/disabling the reset input (hardware reset) of the high-speed counter (bit 2)

Enabling/disabling counting operations (bit 1)

Resetting the elapsed value (software reset) of the high-speed counter to 0 (bit 0)
Clearing high-speed counter instructions (bit 3)
To cancel execution of an instruction, set bit 3 of the data register storing the high-speed
counter control code (sys_wHscOrPulseControlCode) to TRUE. The high-speed counter
control flag then changes to FALSE. To reenable execution of the high-speed counter
instruction, reset bit 3 to FALSE.

8.4 Pulse Output Function
Absolute value control
A number of pulses equal to the difference between the set target value and the current value
are output. Values greater than the current value result in a positive rotation, values smaller
than the current value result in a negative rotation.
EXAMPLE
With a current position of 5000 and a target value of +1000, 4000 pulses are output
from CCW to reach the new position at 1000.

Home return
After a drive system has been switched on, there is a difference between the internal position
value (elapsed value) and the mechanical position of the axis; this difference cannot be
predetermined. The internal value must be synchronized with the actual position value of the
axis. This is done by means of a home return, during which a position value is registered at a
known reference point (home).
During execution of a home return instruction, pulses are continuously output until the home
input is enabled. The I/O allocation is determined by the channel used. See "I/O Allocation" on
page 182.
To decelerate movement when near the home position, designate a near home input and set
bit 4 of the special data register storing the pulse output control code
(sys_wHscOrPulseControlCode) to TRUE and back to FALSE again.
The deviation counter clear output can be set to TRUE when home return has been
completed.
JOG operation
Pulses are output from the specified channel while the trigger for the F172_PulseOutput_Jog
instruction is TRUE. Direction output and output frequency are specified with this instruction.

Using the pulse output control flag
The relay is TRUE if a pulse output instruction is being executed. Use this flag to prohibit the
simultaneous execution of other pulse output instructions on the specified channel, and to
verify completion of the execution.
NOTE
The status of the high-speed counter control flag or pulse output control flag
may change while a scan is being carried out. For example, if the flag is used
more than once as an input condition, different statuses may exist within one
scan. To ensure proper execution of the program, the status of the special
internal relay should be copied to a variable at the beginning of the program.

Clearing high-speed counter and position control instructions
To cancel execution of a pulse output instruction, set bit 2 of the data register storing the
pulse output control code (sys_wHscOrPulseControlCode) to TRUE. The pulse output control
flag will then change to FALSE. To reenable execution of the instruction, reset bit 2 to FALSE.
Control code settings
Bits 0–15 of the control code are allocated in groups of four. The bit setting in each group is
represented by a hex number (e.g. 0002 0001 0000 1001 = 16#2109).

8.4.3.10 F177_PulseOutput_Home, Home Return
This instruction performs a home return according to the parameters in the specified DUT.
After a drive system has been switched on, there is a difference between the internal position
value (elapsed value) and the mechanical position of the axis; this difference cannot be
predetermined. The internal value must be synchronized with the actual position value of the
axis. This is done by means of a home return, during which a position value is registered at a
known reference point (home).
During execution of a home return instruction, pulses are continuously output until the home
input is enabled. The I/O allocation is determined by the channel used.

11.6 Diagnosing Output Malfunction
11.6 Diagnosing Output Malfunction
If the outputs do not function correctly, check the output side first and then the input side.
If the output indicator LEDs are ON:

Check the wiring of the loads.

Check if the power is properly supplied to the loads.
-
If the power is properly supplied to the load, there is probably an abnormality in
the load. Check the load again.
-
If the power is not supplied to the load, there is probably an abnormality with the
outputs. Please contact your dealer.
If the output indicator LEDs are OFF:

Monitor the output condition using FPWIN Pro.
-

If the output monitored is TRUE, there is probably a duplicate output error.
Set the output to TRUE by force using FPWIN Pro.
-
If the output indicator LED is turned ON, you must check the input side.
-
If the output indicator LED remains OFF, there is probably an abnormality with the
outputs. Please contact your dealer.
If the input indicator LEDs are OFF:

Check the wiring of the input devices.

Check that the power is properly supplied to the input terminals.
-
If the power is properly supplied to the input terminal, there is probably an
abnormality with the inputs. Please contact your dealer.
-
If the power is not supplied to the input terminal, there is probably an abnormality
in the input device or input power supply. Check the input device and input power
supply.
If the input indicator LEDs are ON:
Monitor the input condition using FPWIN Pro.

If the input monitored is FALSE, there is probably an abnormality with the inputs.
Please contact your dealer.

If the input monitored is TRUE, check the leakage current at the input devices (e.g.
two-wire type sensor) and check the program again, referring to the following:
-
Check for duplicate output errors and for outputs having been rewritten by highlevel instructions.
-
Check the program flow when instructions such as MC or JP are used.

All memory areas including timers/counters, internal relays, link relays, link registers and data registers can be
backed up. Areas to be held and not to be held can be specified in the system registers.
The optional battery has not been charged when it is shipped from the factory. It must be charged before you
can use it. The battery does not have an alarm function when it is running low. When it is empty, the hold
areas will become indefinite. However, the values will be cleared to 0 the next time the power is turned on.
(We recommend adding a program for clearing the data to 0 when the values in the hold areas become
indefinite.)
Precision of calendar timer:
- At 0°C: less than 104 seconds error per month.
- At 25°C: less than 51 seconds error per month.
- At 55°C: less than 155 seconds error per month

FP0R User's Manual
12.4 System Registers
12.4 System Registers
System registers are used to set values (parameters) which determine operation ranges and
functions used. Set values based on the use and specifications of your program. There is no
need to set system registers for functions which will not be used.
12.4.1 Precautions When Setting System Registers
System register settings are effective from the time they are set.
However, MEWNET-W0 PLC link settings, input settings, TOOL and COM port
communication settings become effective when the mode is changed from PROG to RUN.
With regard to the modem connection setting, when the power is turned off and on or when
the mode is changed from PROG to RUN, the PLC sends a command to the modem which
enables it for reception.
After an initialization with Online  Clear Program and Reset System Register, all system
register values (parameters) set will be reset to their default values.
12.4.2 Types of System Registers
Memory Size (system register 0)
Set the size of the memory area for the user program.
Hold On/Off (system registers 5–8, 10–14)
Use these system registers to specify the hold area start addresses for relays and registers.
Hold areas are not cleared to 0 when the PLC is switched to PROG mode or when the power
is turned off.
The memory area for timer relays and counter relays is partitioned using system register no.
5. Specify the start address for the counter relays.
Act on Error (system registers 4, 20, 23, 26)
Set the operation mode to be chosen after errors such as an operation error, a battery error,
or an I/O verification error.
Time-Out (system registers 30–32, 34)
Set the waiting time before an error is output. You can also specify a constant scan time.
PLC Link (system registers 40–47, 50–55, 57)
These settings are for using link relays and link registers in MEWNET-W0 PLC link
communication. Note that PLC Link is not the default setting.
High-Speed Counter, Pulse-Catch Input, Interrupt Input (system registers 400–405)
When using the high-speed counter function, pulse catch function or interrupt function, set the
operation mode and the input number to be used for the function.
241
Appendix
FP0R User's Manual
Time Constants (system registers 430–433)
Set a time constant for the CPU inputs. These time constants can be useful to negate the
effects of noise or bouncing, e.g. for a switching device.
TOOL Port, COM Port (system registers 410–421)
Set these registers when the TOOL port and COM ports 1 and 2 ports are to be used for
MEWTOCOL-COM Master/Slave connections, program controlled communication, PLC link,
and modem communication. Note that the default setting is MEWTOCOL-COM Master/Slave.


If the same input has been set as high-speed counter input, pulse
catch input or interrupt input, the following order of precedence is
effective: High-speed counter  Pulse catch  Interrupt.

If reset input settings overlap for channel 0 and channel 1, the
channel 1 setting takes precedence. If reset input settings overlap
for channel 2 and channel 3, the channel 3 setting takes precedence.

The input modes two-phase, incremental/decremental, or
incremental/decremental control require a second channel. If
channel 0, 2, or channel 4 has been set to one of these modes, the
settings for channel 1, 3, and 5, respectively, will be invalid.

The settings for pulse catch inputs and interrupt inputs can only be
specified in the system registers.
Transistor types (C16 and higher)
246

CPU outputs which have been specified as pulse output or PWM
output cannot be used as normal outputs.

Input numbers X4 to X7 can be used as home input of pulse output
channels 0 to 3. When using the home return function, always set the
home input. In this case, X4 to X7 cannot be used as high-speed
counter inputs.

The output numbers for the deviation counter clear signal, which can

For C16: Channel 0 = Y6, channel 1 = Y7
For C32/T32/F32: Channel 0 = Y8, channel 1 = Y9, channel 2 = YA,

For instructions which must be used in a pair such as jump (JP
and LBL), one instruction is either missing or in an incorrect
position.
Change to PROG mode and correct the error.
E4
(see note)
Parameter
mismatch error
Stops
An instruction has been written which does not agree with system
register settings. For example, the timer/counter number setting in
a program does not agree with the timer/counter range setting.
Change to PROG mode and correct the error.
An instruction was written to the wrong program area (main
program area or subprogram area)

Change to PROG mode and correct the error.
This error is also detected during online editing. No changes will
be downloaded and operation will continue.
The program stored in the PLC is too large to compile in the
program memory.
Change to PROG mode and correct the error.
Stops
In the program, high-level F and P instructions are triggered by
the same operation result. (While the execution condition is
TRUE, F instructions are executed in every scan. P instructions
are executed only once, at the leading edge of the execution
condition.)
Correct the program so that the high-level instructions executed in
every scan and at the leading edge are triggered separately.
E8
High-level
instruction
operand
combination
error
Stops
There is an incorrect operand in an instruction which requires a
specific combination of operands (for example, the operands must
all be of a certain type).
Change to PROG mode and correct the error.
NOTE
In FPWIN Pro, these errors are detected by the compiler. Therefore, they are not
critical.
