The front panel of the OS has a bright and clear display (LCD with adjustable back lit) and easyto-use push buttons. On the back panel are communication ports for connection to automation
equipment (programmable logic controller, drive, weighing equipment or other equipment) and a
PC (IBM or compatible computer). Also located on the back panel of the OS are clearly
displayed features such as power input, PC and PLC port, Tx and Rx LEDs.
The OS supports a variety of protocols. Various protocols can be downloaded through the PC
port and stored in the unit’s flash memory. The operating system can also be downloaded
through the PC port.
The OS has a total of 300 menu and sub-menu pages (password protection available). Each
page is capable of displaying up to eight embedded data items of the following types; numeric,
alphanumeric, timer, bit status, Horizontal Fill, Text Selector, System Variable, Password, Clock
Calendar, Data registers, Timer, Counter pre-sets and also internal bits in the automation
equipment (AE) may be edited via the OS. Other features include display of status information
and priority driven handling.
The CTIU100/110 is available with two non-standard features: 20mA current loop
communication and a real-time clock (RTC). Both can be ordered at the time of purchase. The
current loop can be re-fit by the user later. The RTC requires factor re-fit. The CTIU050 is only
available with the real-time clock option.
The CTIU20X provides for the display of both text and full graphics and has a Numeric/Function
Keypad.
It also allows the use of a wide range of SmartStack I/O options.
CTIU configuration package, Control Techniques’ Windows-based software, is easy-to-use.

Upgrade Revision Software & Firmware
1.5.1
General
To avail of any new features that are included in this new release on units that were purchased
previous to this release, both software and firmware require updating by the user. Any new unit
will be set-up for the latest version released.
1.5.2
Software Upgrade
To update the software requires that the user install the new version of software from the
installation CD. You may install the new software over any previous version installed. See
section 1.4 Software Installation Instructions.
To update existing projects simple open the project from the newly installed version of the
software. Once the project is saved to disk the update is complete. For backup reasons we
recommend that you save the new version of your project in a different location or under a
different file name.
1.5.3
Firmware Upgrade
The following steps assume that a project or configuration is loaded to the Operator Station and
that the user is running the latest version of software.
a)
b)
c)
d)
Upload the project/configuration from the unit.
If a customised character set is loaded to the unit then upload the character set also.
Choose Automation Device from main menu Configure/Communication Settings.
From File menu choose Update TIU Protocol. If you are updating from firmware version
3.00 or later then you just have to update to the latest protocol file. However if you are
updating from firmware version 2.00 or earlier you most update to a dummy protocol first,
then update to the latest firmware revision. See Note.(See updating protocol for further
information).
e) From File menu choose Update TIU Operating System. (See Updating Operating System
for more details).
f) Choose Download Character Sets to TIU from File menu.
g) Choose Download Project to TIU from File menu.
Note: When updating the protocol file the screen may go blank after the protocol file is complete.
Continue with the procedure as described and the display will recover.

Switch 1
Pull-up and Pull-down switches are used to increase the signal level on the RS-485 bus. This
is useful if there is a long bus and a significant amount of attenuation is anticipated.
Termination resistance of 120Ω must be placed across each end of the RS-485 bus. With
switch 2 ON, a 120Ω resistance is placed across the bus. This is only used if the
CTIU050/100/110 is the last device at either end of the bus.

The unit uses Unidrive address rules so group addressing is supported; this means that the
default address (1) for mentor will not work with the unit. Mentors will need to be readdressed to Unidrive legal numbers (11-19, 21-29, 31-39 etc).
All parameters passed to and from the drive are handled by the CTIU as integers i.e. value
45.4 becomes 454 for reads (vice versa for writes) this is important when using the scaling
facilites, text lookups etc. Usually numerical drive parameters should be accessed as
signed 16 bit, (unsigned may be used if required but take care with range).
When using the ANSI protocol, the unit can talk to 32bit virtual menus in the UD70 / MD29
but these will read as signed or unsigned 16 bit numbers – take care with the range used.
Alternatively 32 bit access can be turned on in the embedded field dialog in which case the
unit will look for 2 consecutive registers. treating the first as least significant 16 bits and the
second as most significant 16 bits, these two are then combined to give a signed or
unsigned 32 bit number. This feature cannot be used with menus 18, 19 & 20 as values are
restricted to +/- 32000.
When using the Modbus RTU or ASCII protocol only 16 bit transfers are supported by CT
devices, The CTIU supports 32 bit transfers consequently do not select 32 bit transfers for
any field on the CTIU when using Modbus.
When using the MD29MON protocol or CTNet 32bit registers in the PLC or other virtual
menu area will be read as 32 bit in a single transaction.
Group broadcast may be used provided drive 1 in the particular group exists (Unidrive only).
Global broadcast may be used by sending to address 0 provided drive 11 exists, Mentor
broadcast is supported in this mode but the first drive must be address 11, other drives
should follow Unidrive address rules. With care mixed (Unidrive & Mentor) networks can be
supported for broadcast in this mode but all broadcast parameters should be integer.
For CTNet communications using a CTIU 200 an optional CTNet SmartStack module is
required.

MC204 / 216
Although an ANSI program is available for the MC controller, we recommend the use of
Modbus protocol for the MC controller as it is simpler to set up.
To set up MODBUS RTU with MC2##
To set up the motion controller you need to execute 2 lines of basic.
ADDRESS = n
Where n is the number of the node
SETCOM(baudrate, databits, stopbits, parity,[port
number],[control])
Parameters
Settings
baudrate:
databits:
stopbits:
parity:
port number:
control:
1200, 2400,4800, 9600,19200 or 38400
7or 8
1or 2
0=none, 1=odd, 2=even
0,1 or 2 (If not specified this parameter defaults to 0)
On channel #1 XON/XOFF can be made active or disabled: active,0=off.
Setting value 4 activates the MODBUS RTU mode.
On power up the controllers always set the serial ports to
9600,7,2,even,XON/XOFF active.
Note:
Suggested settings:
ADDRESS = 1
SETCOM(19200, 8, 1, 0, PORT_No , 4)
With MC204
For RS232 Port_No should be 1
For RS485 Port_No. Should be 2
Limitations:
MC204 and MC202 can only support the protocol at baud rates up to 19200.
Version 1.48 of the MC system file can only handle 16 bit-unsigned variables, the next version
of the system file will fix this problem.

Self-Test
Power up the unit with the UP and ENTER keys pressed at the same time. The unit enters a
self-test mode. The self-test consists of the following four checks:
Contrast Band
This test allows the user to set the lower and upper limits of contrast. Adjust the lower limit using the UP or
DOWN key and press Enter when done. Do the same for the upper limit.
Display Test
The display test continuously blinks all pixels on (black) to off. Look for any pixels stuck on or
off. Exit this test by pressing and holding any key for approximately two seconds.
Keyboard Test
As each key is pressed, an indication *** appears above that key. In the case of units with a
numeric keypad, press the key and a message appears indicating the key press. Check for
keys indicating multiple presses or not reporting presses. Exit this test by pressing and holding
any key for approximately two seconds.
RAM Test
Test either segment 0000 or segment 1000 (on the CTIU100/110) of the RAM. The segment
1000 test performs a base 3 repeating test. This test detects shorted address lines and
damaged memory bits. The segment 0000 test performs a Read-Modify-Write test on each byte
of RAM, detecting damaged memory bits. Exit this test by selecting DONE.

Details for setting up standard serial comms
7.4.1
Communication Mode settings available for standard serial comms.
The Tiu is capable of operating in a number of electrical standards and the comunication mode
selection box is used to indicate which should be used. The selection made effects only the
electrical standard used to implement the serial link, not the data so transferred.
i.e. selecting modbus and RS422/485 Four Wire (Tiu Slave) does not make the unit function as
a modbus slave, merely as a master whose transmitters are turned off when not transmitting.
The modes supported are...
RS422/485 Four Wire (Tiu Master)
Both the RS422 transmitters and the receivers are permanently enabled. Choose this option
where the connected device uses a four wire link and the Tiu is the master on the link.
RS232
Choose this option where a basic three wire RS232 link is required with no handshaking.
RS485 Two Wire
Here the RS422 transmitters are enabled only when the terminal is sending data. The receivers
are switched off when transmitting but switched on at all other times. Choose this setting when
using a two wire RS485 link
Current Loop
Here the current loop receiver and transmitter are permanently enabled. The current loop option
requires a pair of current loop driver chips to be fitted to the terminal. Some terminals are not
capable of upgrade. (Only Tui100 and Tiu110 are) Choose this setting when the device to be
connected to has a current loop interface (Also described as 4-20 mA loop interface).
RS422/485 Four Wire (Tiu Slave)
The RS422 transmitter is enabled whenever data is being transmitted but the receivers are
permanently enabled. Choose this option where the connected device uses a four wire link, but
the Tiu is one of a number of slaves on the link.
RS232 With Active CTS
Here the RS422 Rx Input is treated as a clear to send. This is achieved by tying Rx+ (RS422)
To 0V and feeding the CTS input into Rx- (RS485). Use RS232 transmit and receive as normal.
Use this option where the slave device is slow and will switch off CTS to indicate it is not ready
to accept data.

Where available you should choose Modbus RTU (it is more efficient then ANSI) which you will
find in the Miscellaneous manufacturer section of the comms setup dialogue. Select 2 or 4 wire
from the communications mode menu (2 wire Modbus with UD7# / MD29 is supported from
V2.8 firmware onwards).
If you use ANSI in 4 wire mode (or RS232 with UD71) then choose ANSI 4 wire (On CTIU
software prior to May 2000 this protocol is denoted as Unidrive or Mentor), from the remote
equipment model menu in the dialogue. If you are using 4 wire this will also support the CDE.
Then select either RS422/485 4 wire (TIU master) or RS232 in the communications mode
menu.
If you use ansi in 2 wire mode then choose “2 wire RS485 ANSI 328” this supports all the 2
wire products. Then select RS485 2 wire in the communications mode menu.
7.4.3
Choice of data rate
The maximum data exchange rate available depends on the device in use and varies between
9600Kb/s up to 38400 Kb/s at the time of writing. With the recommended cable and correct
installation the best choice of speed is the fastest available on the device. With UD70 & MD29
38400 is available but when the processor is heavily loaded for instance when running position
control plus an extensive user control program there may not be enough resource in the second
processor to service the serial port at this speed in which case use 19200Kb/s.

General
The CTIU050/10X/11X/20X support function keys to be assigned in the project. The Up, Down,
Pause and Enter key can be configured as function keys however are defined on a per page
basis. Due to the fact that the keys may have other functions allocated to them the following
restrictions are placed on the allocation of functions to these keys:
1. The Pause key is available for mapping on status pages, alarm pages, and menu pages
with no editable embedded data, and which are not part of a submenu, and which do not
have a submenu.
2. The Enter key is available for mapping on status pages, alarm pages and menu pages,
except the first menu page.
3. The Down Key is available for mapping on status pages and on the last page of a sub
menu.
4. The Up Key is available for mapping on status pages and on the first page of a sub menu.
(It is used for scrolling purposes on menu pages that are not the first in a submenu, and on
alarm pages.)
Along with the Up, Down, Pause and Enter keys, the alphanumeric keypad on the
CTIU050/11X/20X can also be assigned functions in the CTIU software. These function keys
can be programmed on all page types and menus.
The Configure Function Key Screen lists the available function keys on each page. See Figure

Text Selector
Text Tables are available in the CTIU050/10X/11X/20X CTIU software. There are 250 available
text tables for use and they may be numbered from 1 to 250. Each text table may have up to
256 entries (numbered 0 to 255). Entries within each table may be called up by using the
selected PLC register. When the ID of the entry is called up in the PLC register, the text string
(entry) is displayed. The text strings are automatically forced to the width of the longest text
string in the table (selected table). Strings are automatically left justified. Text tables are typically
used in situations where the operator desires a visual message when some event (such as a
value change in a register) occurs.
Example: A PLC is controlling a process that manufactures one of four drink types: Cola,
Lemonade, Orange Juice, and Apple Juice.
The PLC has a register that contains the value of “6” when Cola is being made, “8” when
lemonade is being made, “12” when Orange Juice is being made and “24” when Apple Juice is
being made. A Text table can be created with four entries, 6, 8, 12 and 24, with the text for
these items being the four products. Now, the PLC register can be monitored and the
appropriate text inserted into a page on the CTIU050/100/110.
A maximum of 64kBytes can be used by all of the text tables.
9.9.1

Default Text Table Entries
If an undefined value is entered into the text table entry field (i.e., a value that has not been
assigned in any text table), then one of two different things happen.
a. If the user has assigned a value to the Default Entry in the Text Table box, then that entry
number is displayed. This value is assigned by first checking the box next to Default Entry,
then entering a number in the box below.
b. If the box is unchecked and a default entry has not been selected, then a series of asterisks
(corresponding to the longest entry in the text table) are displayed.
Example: There are four entries in the text table. These four entries have numbers of 23, 24,
54 and 67. The text in these entries is as follows:
23 - Cola
24 - Soda Water
54 - Apple Juice
67 - Orange Juice
100 Undefined
If an undefined value is entered (e.g. 97) then “************” is shown. If a default entry has been
selected, i.e., 100 (any number can be used), then the text corresponding to 100, “Undefined”
is displayed.

Menu Timeout
The Menu Timeout is a useful safety feature. This forces the CTIU050/100/110 back to the first
(main) menu page after a set time period. For example, the CTIU050/100/110 is on an input
menu page, after 30 seconds of no activity, the CTIU050/100/110 reverts back to the non-input
(safety) main menu page. To set the timeout:

Connect the TIU to the PC.
From File, choose Set Clock. The PC's time is downloaded to the Unit
9.14.
Scaling
Embedded Fields can be Scaled to convert register values from the AE into real-world numbers.
9.14.1
To enable Scaling:
1. From the Embedded Data screen, click Enable in the Scaling box.
2. Enter the TIU Minimum, TIU Maximum, Remote Minimum and Remote Maximum.
3. After configuring any other fields, click OK.
The TIU Minimum and Maximum refer to the minimum and maximum values to be displayed
on the TIU. The Remote Minimum and Maximum refer to the minimum and maximum values
produced by the AE.
Example. Scaling can be used to convert the drive speed in RPM to a conveyor's speed in
m/min. This scaling could then be taking the gearbox and all the other mechanical factors into
account. The maximum sped of the drive may be 1450, but the actual maximum speed of the
conveyor is 100 m/min. Therefore, the Scaling configuration is as follows:
TIU Minimum
0 (m/min)
TIU Maximum
100 (m/min)
Remote Minimum
0 (RPM)
Remote Maximum
1450 (RPM)

Status
The CTIU050/10X/11X/20X can display STATUS information. For example, a status page can
be displayed as COILS change (in real-time) in your drive, i.e., the first Coil displays the first
Status page, the second coil the second page and so on.
Status messages can have up to eight embedded data values per page. Up to 300 total pages
are available split between Status, Alarms and Menu pages.
Two different modes are available for configuring status pages. These modes are the Bit Mode
and the Direct Mode.
•
Direct Mode reads only one register as a word from the drive for the status page. If the
value in this register is zero or greater than the number of configured status pages
in the system, the main menu screen is displayed. Otherwise, the appropriate status
screen is called up.
•
Bit Mode works essentially the same, except that the screens are controlled by discrete
bits instead of the full word register values.
NOTE: Status pages are only displayed when MENU PAGE 1 is selected.
Example: The following example involves the CTIU050/10X/11X/20X connected to Unidrive &
UD70. It is applicable to any of the supported automation equipment with substitutions made
for the specific registering nomenclature, i.e., 70.00 is a 32 bit multipurpose register which can
be mapped to the Beckhoff remote I/O. It is assumed the drive is properly configured, the
CTIU050/10X/11X/20X is properly connected to the drive, both are powered up, and the CTIU
software, is running on the PC.
1.
Select Communication Settings from the Configure menu. Select the automation
equipment type you are using. For the example here, a “Control Techniques Unidrive
protocol” is being used. Click OK.
2.
Insert a menu page after Menu Page 1 (refer to 12.2 for instructions). Place the cursor
at the left on the first line. Click the double height icon. Type “Discrete Outputs:”
3.
On the third line, type “_R1%.0”. Click on the Embed Icon. Select Bit Status from
Type; Drive parameter from Data Type; Location 72.01, bit number 0; leave Token
Pair as “OFF”/”ON” and click Edit Enable. Click OK. See Figure 8.8.
4.
Do the same for _R1%.1, _R1%.2 and _R1%.3 on lines 4, 5 and 6, incrementing the Bit
Number by one. These discrete outputs will simulate coils. Menu Page 2(2) should be

Alarms
12.6.1
General
The CTIU050/100/110 can display ALARM information as BITS change in your drive (real-time).
The active alarms can be accepted and then SCROLLED through. Up to 300 total pages are
available split between Alarms, Status and Menu pages.
The CTIU050/100/110 also has an Alarm Acknowledge Table. This feature allows a set of bits
to be written back to the drive to indicate alarms that have been accepted by the user, but are
still “ON” in the drive table. These bits are in the same format as the “incoming” alarm bits. The
acknowledgement bits are set when an alarm has been acknowledged, provided that the
corresponding bit is still active in the alarm table. The acknowledgement bit is cleared when the
corresponding alarm bit is cleared. Click the Enable box to use the Alarm Acknowledge Table.
Example: The CTIU100 or 110 is connected to a Unidrive. Register _P20% AKA #70.20, bits 0
to 3 are the alarms. Register _P21% AKA #70.21, bits 0 to 3 are the acknowledgement table.
The instructions below are a tutorial of how to use the Alarms on the CTIU050/100/110.

NETWORKING
14.1.
General
There is now a networking option available with the CTIU101/111/201. These units support
Device Net and CsCan network protocols. This chapter will discuss the registers used for
network communication and how to configure the TIU units for network communication.
14.2.
Network I/O
The CTIU101/111/201 units contain a special set of registers called Global Network I/O, or
simply Global I/O. Using the CsCan protocol these bits are automatically sent through the
network to all other units on the network. Anyone unit can be made aware of the activities of any
other unit on the network, and any one unit can send a signal to any or all other unit on the
network.
There are four (4) types of global registers available - %IG, %QG, %AIG, and %AQG. The
model defines the type and number of global registers available in any given model.
The global ‘I’ registers contain an image of global ‘Q’ registers located in a different unit
connected to the network. The association between I registers and ‘Q’ registers is set at the
destination unit.
Any ‘I’ register may be associated to one and only one ‘Q’ register, but that ‘Q’ register may be
located in any other unit on the network. Any ‘Q’ register is broadcast on the network for any or
all other units to use.

read a single bit register from the network, select a specific %IG register from the list, by
double clicking on the name of the register. As per Figure 14.2 enter the network ID of the
data source and the specific register (%QG) from that network ID.
Figure 14.2 - Configure Network Input

The data read from the %QG register can be directly sent to a specific register
automation equipment. From figure 14.2 enable the Data Destination box and define the
automation equipment register that %QG1 is to be sent to.

Background Functions
The CTIU10X/11X/20X terminals background function facility allows the terminal to continually
run up to 8 maths functions automatically, without operator intervention. These functions can be
programmed to run repeatedly after a specified time interval or be executed once on
initialisation of the terminal.
To program a background function, choose Background Functions from Edit menu, in the
Mathedit Application Window. Figure 15.6 shows the background function set-up window.

SmartStack 
16.1.
General
Control Techniques has now added the SmartStack modules to the CTIU20X range. The
SmartStack system is a method of allowing I/O expansion on an HMI. As well as CTNet, a wide
range of Digital and Analogue I/O modules is available.
16.2.
Installing and Removing a SmartStack Module
The following section describes how to install and remove a SmartStack Module.
Caution: To function properly and avoid possible damage, do not install more than four
Smart Stack
 Modules per CTIU20X.
a.
Installing SmartStack Modules
1. Hook the tabs. Each SmartStack Module has two tabs that fit into slots located on the
CTIU20X. (The slots on the CTIU20X are located on the back cover.)
2. Press the SmartStack Module into the “locked” position, making sure to align the
SmartStack Module fasteners with the SmartStack receptacles on the CTIU20X.
b.
Removing SmartStack Modules
1. Using a Flathead screwdriver, pry up the end of the SmartStack Module (opposite of tabs)
and swing the module out.
2. Lift out the tabs of the module.

SmartStack I/O
The input and output of the smartstack is handled within the local registers of the terminal. The
local registers and therefore the I/O of the smartstack is then analysed or manipulated within the
Mathedit Application of the CTIU software. See chapter 15 for more information on the Mathedit
Application.
16.5.
Module Addressing
The base addressing for the slots are as follows: Table 16.2 Base Address
Slot
Base Address
1
00001
2
10001
3
20001
4
30001
The input and output register names and addresses are as follows: Table 16.2 I/O Address
I/O Type
Address
Bit Input
%Innnnn
Bit Output
%Qnnnnn
Word Input
%AInnnnn
Word Output
%AQnnnnn
™ nnnnn = the base address of the module
™ The base address begins at nnnnX and is incremented by 1 to the
last channel on the module. (X = 1 or 0 depending on the bit base
numbering set-up under Configure/Bit Base Numbering, default is 1)
All examples below assume Least Significant Bit for Internal References is set to 1.
E.g. the third bit of a Digital Input module in slot 3 would have the address of %I20003.
E.g. the fourth bit of a Digital Output module in slot 3 would have the address of %Q20004.
E.g. the third channel of an Analogue Input module in slot 4 would have the address of
%AI30003.
Note: Digital Input modules can be read as words or bits by selecting the appropriate register type. Digital
Output modules can be written to as words or bits by selecting the appropriate register type. The system
will strip off any redundant bits within the word.
16.6.
Displaying Data From SmartStack
Data from SmartStack modules can be embedded into a menu page in exactly the same way as
other Automation Equipment devices. Embed the data type as normal and select the Location
from the range of “Smart I/O” register types shown in the pull down register table. The normal
function can then be applied to the register value, i.e. Range Checking, Scaling etc.
Note: The numeric default settings for Analogue modules should be set to 16 bit and signed.
Output data can be edited / scaled using the screen editor in the same way as a normal AE.
Data to / from SmartStack can also be scaled or manipulated via the Maths.
Note: The numeric default settings for Analogue modules should be set to 16 bit and signed.
Output data can be edited / scaled using the screen editor in the same way as a normal AE.

CTIU User Manual Issue 2
It is not possible to read and then modify Output types directly within a TIU system. If it is
necessary to do this, it is better to use a System %R register within the Maths facility to
manipulate and hold the “master value” then assign the actual value to a %AQ register. See
Chapter 15 Mathematics on writing and calling maths functions.
Again, it is good practise to write to an Output type at only 1 point in the configuration.

Considerations for Shutting Down & Restarting a CTIU20X with
I/O
During a “shutdown” for downloading, it is possible to leave SmartStack outputs on. It is
therefore important to make sure that all outputs are in a safe condition before this operation is
carried out.
For example, this could be implemented using a dedicated Function Key labelled SHUTDOWN
to call a Maths function that set any SmartStack outputs to a safe state for shutdown.
During a restart either from a “Power Up” or from after a download, SmartStack outputs may not
always be in the mode required. This situation could be overcome by calling a Restart Maths
function to correctly initialise the SmartStack output modules.
Examples are shown below
