The communication board FX2N-232-BD for RS232C (hereinafter referred to as “232BD”) can be connected to the main
unit of the FX2N Series programmable controller, and used as the port for the following applications.
(1) To perform data transfer between RS232C devices such as personal computers, bar code readers and printers.
(2) To perform data transfer using the dedicated protocol between RS232C devices. For details of the dedicated
protocol, refer to the users manual of the FX-485PC-IF.
(3) To connect a programming tool.
And when the 232BD is used for the application (1) or (2) above, the communication format including the baud rate, the
parity and the data length is specified by the parameters or the contents of the special data register D8120 of the FX2N
programmable controller.
Only one 232BD can be connected to one base unit. Accordingly, the 232BD cannot be used together with the
FX2N-485-BD or the FX2N-422-BD. When two or more RS232C units are required to be connected for the application,
use the special block for RS232C communication.

Conforming to RS232C
To send and receive the data between the RS232C unit using the 232BD, the communication format including the
transmission speed (baud rate) and the parity must be consistent between the 232BD and the RS232C unit.
The communication format can be set using parameters or the contents of special data register D8120 of the FX2N
programmable controller. Make sure to set appropriately the communication format in accordance with the RS232C unit
used. For the setting method using the parameters of the FX2N programmable controller, refer to the manual of the
peripheral unit used.
Make sure to turn off the power of the programmable controller and turn it on again after modifying the setting.

CAUTION FOR USE
1)
When programming tool is connected the 232BD, do not use any other communication format or parameters. If
communication format or parameters is set, programming is not possible.
2)
Only one programming tool (such as FX-10P, FX-20P, etc.) should be connected to either the programming port or
the port provided on the 232BD. If a programming tool is connected to both connectors, the following may occur.

2)
Preparation of software
• Use ordinary communication software (terminal
emulator) or dedicated program in the personal
computer.
The communication format of the PC for this example
is as follows.

PROGRAM EXAMPLES
1)
Make sure that the communication format is consistent between the external unit (RS232C unit) and the
programmable controller (D8120). If it is not consistent, correct the setting of the communication parameters or
correct the contents of the D8120. When the D8120 is modified, turn on the RS instruction again. When the
communication parameters are modified, turn off the power of the programmable controller, then turn it on again.
2)
Check the timing for sending and receiving the data. For example, confirm that the counterpart unit is ready for
receiving before sending the data.
3)
If a terminator is not used, make sure that the send data quantity is consistent with the receivable data quantity. If
both quantities are not consistent with each other, make them be consistent. (If the send data quantity varies, use
a terminator.)
4)
Make sure that the external unit is operating correctly.
5)
Make sure that the data format transferred is equivalent. If it is not equivalent, correct it.
6)
When the RS instruction is used twice or more in the program, make sure that only one RS instruction is turned on
in one calculation cycle. Never set the RS instruction to OFF state while the data is being received or sent.
Send
The program inside the programmable controller may not be consistent with the program inside the
programming tool. If the program is modified or the set value for the timer or the counter is modified, a part of
the program may be damaged and the programmable controller may malfunction.

8.3 When communication is performed between the computer using the no protocol
Connect 232BD and a personal computer, and exchange data with PC.
If the communication format of the soft ware cannot be
adjusted to this setting, adjust the PC and the software
to be the same.
8.4 When the dedicated protocol is used for communication between the computer
Sequence program
Connecting 232BD and a printer, and printing out the data sent from the PC.
1)
Make sure that the communication format is consistent between the computer (RS232C unit) and the programmable
controller (D8120). If it is not consistent, correct the setting of either the computer or the programmable controller.
When the programmable controller is modified, turn off the power of the programmable controller, then turn it on
again.
2)
Make sure that the station No. of the programmable controller which is the target of data transfer is equivalent to the
station No. set in the communication procedure. If they are not equivalent, correct the wrong one.
3)
Make sure that the communication procedure is correct. If it is not correct, modify the setting of the RS232 unit to
realize correct procedure.
4)
Check whether errors have occurred in the RS232 unit and the programmable controller. For the check method and
the countermeasures, refer to the users manual of the FX-485PC-IF.
5)
If the RS instruction is used in the program, delete it, turn off the power of the programmable controller, then turn it
on again.
