For any project, you must define the Tag database first. Tag is a register
or coil which is used in your application. Tags can be defined by using
either Edit-Tag database menu or Tag tool. A tagname can be assigned
to each tag and the tag can be referred to by it's name subsequently,
making it very convenient to use. Tag database can be accessed from
anywhere in the software. It is advised to define all the registers/coils you
will be using in your project ahead of time.
Once the Tag database is defined, assign the STR and the LED register.
This can be done using Edit-Setup menu or by clicking on the
PLC-NT2S-SF121B-E/NT2S-SF122B-E link on the Toolstation. Use a
bit addressable register as the LED register so that each LED can be easily
controlled.

Another method is to use a special screen which allows data entry. Here,
the format in which data is edited is user definable. When this special
screen is triggered, the operator can enter the new data using the arrow
keys and the CLR and ENT keys. Coils can also be edited this way.
How is the unit configured?
Each unit MUST be configured using the Windows based setup software
provided with the unit. The software is quite easy to use and contains
comprehensive online help.
Invoke the NT2 ST software that is installed on your PC.
The software can be used either from the pull down menus or by using
the comprehensive Toolstation that appears on the bottom half of the
Window. Each tool has balloon help associated with it to help identify
the function. If the Toolstation does not appear on your screen, it can
be turned on using the "Options" pull down menu.
Select NEW project by clicking on the corresponding tool.
A window will appear showing all the available products.
Select the NT2S-SF121B-E/NT2S-SF122B-E. The bitmap of the unit
will appear on the screen.
Select your PLC from the list of available drivers. Also select the correct
PLC model that you are using.
The Toolstation now will allow you to configure the NT2S-SF121B-E/
NT2S-SF122B-E. If any error screen indicating that "PLC driver is not
found" appears, contact factory for support.
What does the unit do?
The NT2S-SF121B-E/NT2S-SF122B-E connects to YOUR PLC over it's
programming or standard communications port. It is capable of displaying
screens based on conditions in the PLC and is capable of changing data in
the PLC registers/coils. It can also print screen text over the serial port.
What does the unit have?
The NT2S-SF121B-E/NT2S-SF122B-E has the following functional blocks:
• NT2S-SF121B-E - 10-30 VDC power supply
• NT2S-SF122B-E - Supply from the PLC
• 2 lines of 16 character backlit LCD
• 6 keys keypad
• 2 LEDs for annunciation
• 8K / 32K EEPROM memory for PLC driver and screens
• RS232C Port to connect the PLC for programming
• RS232C Port to connect the PC for programming and also for printing
• RTC (Optional for NT2S-SF122B-E)
How does the unit work?
The NT2S-SF121B-E/NT2S-SF122B-E must be configured for YOUR application. It stores the configuration details and screens in it's memory. Based
on conditions in the PLC the configured screens are displayed. When a key
is pressed, the configured action is taken. The unit continuously communicates with the PLC to detect conditions for displaying screens, to control
the 2 LEDs on the unit and for it's internal operations.
How are screens displayed?
What do the keys do?
Each screen has a unique number. The NT2S-SF121B-E/NT2SSF122B-E scans a user definable register called as Screen Triggering
Register (STR) in the PLC. To display screen number "XXX", simply
put the number "XXX" in this STR. Valid screen numbers are 1 to 65528.
The keys on the NT2S-SF121B-E/NT2S-SF122B-E can perform user defined
functions. The same keys can be used to change data or to scroll through
a list of screens. The operation of keys depends on the type of screen being
displayed as follows:
Type of screen
Key operations
Normal
All keys perform user defined functions
as configured by the software
Special
Arrow keys, CLR and ENT keys are used
(with data entry)
to change data. NEXT and PREV keys
act as function keys.
Link
NEXT and PREV keys are used to scroll
through the list of screens. Other keys
act as function keys.
For all both line screens, the keys can be redefined to perform user defined
task which can be different from global key task.
Normal screen are used to monitor status or alarms. A screen can have
register values or bit controlled text embedded in it which is dynamically
updated. RTC related data can also be embedded.
Special screen are used to change data in the PLC or to turn a coil ON
or OFF.
Link screen defines a list of screens that can be viewed consecutively
by pressing the NEXT or PREV keys.
What are screen attributes?
A normal screen can flash or scroll on the display. Any screen can be
assigned to be sent to a serial printer. A screen can be assigned to the
top line, bottom line or both lines. A minimum time can be assigned
to ensure that the operator has enough time to view the screen. If the
PLC calls other screen in this time, they will be stored on a queue inside
the unit. The maximum queue size is 3 screens.
Note: The queue can be cleared by putting the number 65535 in STR.
You can likewise call a screen on priority by putting the number 65535
in STR first and then calling the desired screen number.
How are LEDs controlled?
The NT2S-SF121B-E/NT2S-SF122B-E scans a user definable register called
the LED register. The least significant 2 bits in this register are mapped to
the LEDs. If a bit is ON, the corresponding LED is turned ON.
How can data be entered?
There are two ways to edit data using the NT2S-SF121B-E/NT2S-SF122B-E.
One way is to use function keys. The function keys can download a constant
or can increment / decrement assigned register value or can change a coil
status.

status is given by bit 001.00.
To display this screen, do the following:
a.
Move number 200 in DM0020 since the screen will be stored in DM0200
onwards.
b.
Move character string “Door:” into 2 words, i.e. DM0200 and DM0201.
c.
Move characters “OPEN” if bit 001.00 is ON or characters “CLOSED” if
001.00 is OFF.
This is a way to implement bit sensitive screens.
e.
In a similar manner, embed the characters “BAKETIME: ” into 5 words
from DM0208.
f.
NT2S-SF123B-E uses DM0000 to DM0011 registers for embedding data.
Here we select DM0003 to be used for embedding. So, move the data of
DM0100 into DM0003 so that embedding can be done.

To disable data entry in Screen mode
(ON : Disable)
From the above table, it is clear that the unit will display ASCII text (see section
on Screens for more details on this ) if 200.08 and 200.09 are OFF. To allow
operators to view and edit the registers, 200.08 is to be kept ON. If 200.08 is OFF,
the unit will not display any registers and the function keys will only act as push
buttons mapped to the corresponding bits from 201.00. Refer to “Register Mode”
for details. If 200.09 is ON, REG key press will allow an operator to view the registers.
The REG key will scroll through the available register types whereas the UP and
DOWN arrow keys will scroll through the register/bit numbers. After timeout
specified by bits 10 and 11 and if no key is pressed, the unit will switch back to
the Screen mode and display screens. Thus Operator mode is a combination
of Register as well as Screen modes.
Screens
Example 1: Display a static screen
The unit displays 32 characters from the PLC memory. These characters
are taken from the PLC data registers.
The unit tracks register DM0020 ( the Offset register ) in the PLC. The number
in DM0020 gives the start address of the data register block which contains the
characters to be displayed. For example, if DM0020 has number 124 in it, the
unit will read 16 registers from DM0124, i.e. from DM0124 to DM0139 and display
the corresponding characters.
Each register contains two bytes. Each ASCII character to be displayed is
one byte. So, each word contains two characters that can be displayed. All the
PLC ladder logic has to do is to put the correct words in the registers being read
by the unit so that a proper screen can be displayed.
As mentioned above, the starting address of the screen data block is
controlled by the Offset register, i.e DM0020. Hence, there can be two methods
of changing the screen to be displayed. One is to keep the value in DM0020
constant and change the data in the screen registers by the ladder logic. Second
is to keep the screen text in the data memory (by editing DM registers) and change
the value in DM0020 so as to point to the correct memory address to display the
desired screen.
It is possible to embed registers in the screens. The unit reads 16 registers
from DM0000 to DM0015 (in which DM0012 to DM0015 are used for Bar Graph)
in every scan. The data in these registers can be embedded in the screens. To
do so, use hex bytes 0 to B (C to F used for Bar Graph) corresponding to register
DM0000 to DM0011 respectively in the screen. Refer to the example given which
explains the embedding of registers. It is possible to embed one data entry field
in screens. It is similar to embedding register, only instead of 0 to F use 10 to 1F
hex bytes to address DM0000 to DM0015. The registers DM0000 to DM0015 can
be edited with this feature one at a time in a screen.
Suppose the following screen needs to be displayed on the
NT2S-SF123B-E :
Last Rinse Cycle
Water pump is on
To display this screen, do the following:
a.
Move number 200 in DM0020 since the screen text will be stored
in DM0200 onwards.
b.
Move character string “Last Rinse Cycle” into 8 words from DM0200.
c.
In a similar manner, the characters “Water pump is on” can be embeded
into 8 words from DM0208. (i.e. from DM0208 to DM0215).
This will put the following data in data words below: ("b" is used for a space)
