ETHERCAT® ADAPTER
3 OVERVIEW
The Watlow EtherCAT® Adapter allows integration of the EZ-ZONE RM systems into larger EtherCAT®
controlled processes. EtherCAT® is an industrial control network that uses standard 100 Base-T Ethernet wiring
to provide very fast access to controllers and their data points. The Watlow EtherCAT® Adapter conforms to
the EtherCAT® Temperature Controller Specific Device Profile ETG 5003-2060. It has been conformance tested
by an ETG test facility.
EtherCAT® provides access to system parameters using a CAN open interface scheme. The ETG 5003-2060
specification describes the data point organization. The data is accessed via SDO (Service Data Objects) during
startup and configuration and via PDO (Process Data Objects) exchange during operation. SDO access is
transactional in nature, the master asking for or setting a value in the slave device. The device supports
reading and writing an entire index in one transaction. The feature is called SDO complete. PDO data is a
continuous stream of data from the master and back from the devices at high speed.
USB and Bluetooth® interfaces are provided for configuration and system monitoring from a PC or tablet
devices. Bluetooth® is an option so it can be excluded for production equipment where wireless security is
important.
The Watlow EtherCAT® Adapter can also host a legacy communications adder card. This card provides
additional connection points for Modbus®, DeviceNet™ and Watlow Standard Bus. These cards are intended
to extend the network beyond RM modules to include displays like Watlow Silver Series and EZ-ZONE EZK and
legacy controllers such as the EHG® SL-10. The Watlow EZ-ZONE ST and EZ-ZONE PM may be integrated from
the “C” connector without requiring a Legacy Communications card.
The Watlow RMZ4 EtherCAT® Adapter operates within a larger RM system. The RMZ4 part number defines the
number of loops supported. The largest system supported is 48 loops. The RMZ4 module does not support adhoc RM modules and function block programming. Function blocks in the RMS and RME I/O modules may be
programmed using EZ-ZONE Configurator software via the USB port.
The RMZ4 supports 4 optical temperature sensors for high RF or voltage environments like plasma, power
distribution transformers, or medical imaging.

5.2 RM SYSTEM CONNECTIONS
The RM system controlled by an RMZ4 module can be installed as stand-alone modules or can be
interconnected on the DIN rail as shown below. When modules are connected together as shown, power and
communications are shared between modules over the modular backplane interconnection. Therefore,
bringing the necessary power and communications wiring to any one connector in slot C is sufficient. The
modular backplane interconnect comes standard with every module ordered and is generic in nature, meaning
any of the RM modules can use it.
The modules can also be mounted in different locations and the backplane connected via wires in a Split Rail
configuration as shown in the figure. Notice in the split rail system diagram that a single power supply is used
across both DIN rails. One notable consideration when designing the hardware layout would be the available
power supplied and the loading effect of all of the modules used.
Watlow provides three options for power supplies listed below:
1. 90-264VAC to 24VDC @ 31 watts (Part #: 0847- 0299-0000)
2. 90-264VAC to 24VDC @ 60 watts (Part #: 0847- 0300-0000)
3. 90-264VAC to 24VDC @ 91 watts (Part #: 0847- 0301-0000)
With regards to the modular loading affect, maximum power for each is listed below:
1. RMCxxxxxxxxxxxx @ 7 watts / 14VA
2. RMEx-xxxx-xxxx @ 7 watts / 14VA
3. RMAx-xxxx-xxxx @ 4 watts / 9VA
4. RMLx-xxxx-xxxx @ 7 watts / 14VA
5. RMHx-xxxx-xxxx @ 7 watts / 14VA
6. RMSx-xxxx-xxxx @ 7 watts / 14VA
So in the worst case EtherCAT® integrated system, 48 loops, the maximum current draw on the supply would
be 39 watts.
- 1 RMZ4 consumes 4 watts
- 3 RMS modules consumes 21 watts
- 2 RME modules consumes 14 watts

6 THEORY OF OPERATION
EtherCAT® is a protocol that runs on standard Ethernet hardware – CAT5 cable, RJ45 jacks and standard
physical layer transceivers. The Ethernet Media Access Controller (MAC) is a slight variation of a standard MAC
implemented with an ASIC. It allows data to be read and modified on-the-fly as the bits pass through the MAC.
This implies EtherCAT® is a ring topology with each device being part of a single chain. Data frames are not
received and responses formulated. It is more like a train of bytes that does not slow down at the station, data
jumps on and off as the ‘train’ passes though. This allows cycle times around the network in the microsecond
range, even with thousands of data points. This is the PDO (Process Data Object – real-time data) mechanism.
Responsiveness is very important in a large system to keep scan times short. This means products should not
introduce latencies in the system’s data cycle. Therefore the data of interest to the larger system must be
maintained close to the EtherCAT® access port. It is not acceptable to have long latencies while data is
retrieved via the backplane. To assure the required speed, the EZ-ZONE architecture has been modified slightly
to maintain critical data objects in the EtherCAT® module itself rather than each RM module.
EtherCAT® models data as CoE objects. CoE is CANOpen over EtherCAT®. This is the object model developed
for the CAN Open protocol and reused as the EtherCAT data model. It uses objects defined by indexes (0x0000
to 0xFFFF) each containing up to 255 sub-indexes or data elements of simple or complex data type.
EtherCAT® transports data using PDO and SDO methods. PDO is Process Data Object. It is the regular data
shared to and from the master to all the slave devices. The network PDO scan times are very fast, 0.5 to 4ms
typically. The data in the PDO is a selected set of Object:SubIndex parameters. Typical PDO parameters are
process temperature, set point, output power, and errors. PDO data is only exchanged when the system is in
the operational mode (OP mode). As a default, the RMZ4 controller only controls temperature in the
operational mode. The Safe State parameter configures this behavior.
SDO is Service Data Object. This is an asynchronous, on-demand mailbox service that provides access to all the
CoE objects in the device. The SDO method is used to configure the device or tweak settings. Setting PID,
Proportional Integral Derivative control loop parameters or starting an auto-tune would be typical uses for an
exchange. SDO exchanges can occur during normal operation but are secondary to PDO traffic. SDO exchanges
can occur in all modes except boot mode.
The EtherCAT® module holds all the data that is part of the Semi TWG (Technical Working Group) Standard for
all the loops being controlled locally in the EtherCAT® module. The control loops are hosted by the EtherCAT®
module. The EtherCAT® module works in conjunction with RM modules to act as sensor inputs and heater
outputs only. The PV (Process Value Temperature) is produced by an RM and consumed by the EtherCAT®
module via data sharing. The loop power is produced by the EtherCAT® module and consumed by an RM
output via data sharing. The values accessed by the EtherCAT® module are the values held internally. This
includes PV, SP (Set Point), PID values, control mode, percent power, etc.
In legacy product configurations (ST,PM,SL-10) the pertinent data is held locally within the EtherCAT® adapter
for instant access but the control loops still execute in the individual devices due to the lower bandwidth
W ATLOW® EZ-ZONE® RMZ4

ETHERCAT® ADAPTER
buses. There means parameter changes made over EtherCAT® can take up to 200ms to be written to the
remote legacy device since they need to be sent by proxy on the legacy communications bus. Input values are
continuously scanned by the RMZ4 and the latest value is available for PDO access.
Some configuration data such as sensor type, cycle time, input and output scaling are considered configuration
data by EtherCAT®. It is not part of the EtherCAT®’s fast I/O cycle. These values are written out to each of the
RM modules on power-up or value change to ensure the I/O configuration matches the SDO values. Local
copies in the EtherCAT® module are maintained for immediate access even though a proxy write is required on
change. The configuration values changed will take effect within 200ms.
The RMZ4 models individual control loops as modules or slots as described by the EtherCAT® Modular Device
Profile. Each control loop is mapped to a module or slot. This is a logical association. The EtherCAT® loop
module does not map one to one with physical RM modules. The configuration section describes how to map
the I/O in each RM physical module with the appropriate control loop. Any of the RM family with IO may be
used in conjunction with the RMZ. This includes RMC, RMH, RMS, RML, and RME.

7.2 ETHERCAT® MASTER AND ESI FILE
EtherCAT® systems have a master that configures the network and the devices then manages data interactions
with the devices during operation. Beckhoff®’s TwinCAT® or EtherCAT® Configurator are common master
software programs that run on a standard 32 bit Windows® PC. The Master needs an ESI file to describe the
device and its capabilities. This file is in XML format and provided by Watlow for the RMZ. The ESI file contains
the object dictionary for the RMZ. There is one ESI file regardless of the version of RMZ that contains the
parameter details for all product versions. The master will select the correct version from the ESI based on the
version information reported from the RMZ. If a new version produce is added to the system make sure to
have the master reload the correct definition from the latest ESI file.

7.8 CONFIGURING THE RMZ4
The I/O in the EtherCAT® system uses RZ-ZONE RMS, RMH, and RMC modules for sensor inputs and RME, RMS,
or RMC modules for heater outputs. The RMZ4 module performs the actual control algorithms. The controls
loops are mapped to the I/O modules in the same manner regardless of the loop count. Limits implemented in
the RML are still maintained in the RML module but configured via the EtherCAT® interface. The number of
W ATLOW® EZ-ZONE® RMZ4
- 23 -
ETHERCAT® ADAPTER
loops in the system is defined by the part number. Each control loop in the object ranges (0x4000, 0x6000,
0x7000 and 0x8000) is offset by 0x10 as show in the table is section 6.5. The RMZ4 is a Modular EtherCAT®
device. When using TwinCAT® Master software to add each control loop to your master configuration, add
additional control loop slots under “Box 1 (Watlow RM): Append Module.” The loops are connected to I/O
using the 0x4000 range of objects. The RMZ4 can also be used with EZ-ZONE ST as an interface to these standalone controllers. The data is presented to the network with the same model.
7.9 IDENTIFYING THE RMZ4 ITSELF
The identity of the RMZ4 module is accessed through objects 0x1000.
7.10
SETTING ADDRESSES ON CONNECTED DEVICES
Each EZ-ZONE RMS, RME, RML, RMF, RMC, or RMH device needs a unique address to identify it on the bus.
This is the orange digit in the upper right hand side of the device. To change, hold the orange button until the
digit glows brightly then press to increment by 1; the value will wrap around to 1. Make sure each device has a
unique value.
The DIP switches on the front of the EZ-ZONE ST devices set the device’s zone. If the system contains both RM
and ST devices, they all need to have unique addresses because they share the standard bus address space.
This is the Zone Number used to map I/O in the 0x4000 objects.
7.11
IDENTIFYING CONNECTED DEVICES
The RM modules connected to the RMZ4 via the backplane or split-rail are visible in objects 0xF500 to 0xF504.
The ST or PM modules connected to the RMZ4 via the Standard Bus connection are visible in objects 0xF510 to
0xF514. The products ID, part number, revision, and serial number may be observed.

ADDING SLOTS
A slot is a logical organization of modular control loops. Each slot or loop represents a sensor, PID loop, set
point and power level. Add the number of loops needed in your system. Once added, loops are mapped to the
inputs, output, limits, current sensor, and over-temp limits available in the RM modules or EZ-ZONE ST or PM.
Typically a system will use and RMS for input and an RME for outputs and current transformers. This system
can be augmented with an RML limits module for over-temp protection. If the system has few loops an RMC is
an option for integrating sensor, outputs, limits and CT is one hardware module. The 0x4000 objects are used
to define the I/O location for each loop. The maximum number of slots/control loops the user can add is
defined in the module number. RMZ4-nnAA-AAAA where nn is the maximum number of loops that can be
added.

ETHERCAT® ADAPTER
7.13
MAPPING I/O TO LOOPS (SLOTS)
The 0x4000 objects define the connection between the RMZ4 control loops and the system I/O. Each loop has
a configuration object offset by 0x10 like all modular objects. Each of the control loops needs to be associated
with I/O in the attached EZ-ZONE RM or ST modules.
Important: The default mapping is loop sensor inputs 1 to 16 map to zone 1 instances 1 to 16. Digital
outputs map to zone 2, DIO instance 1 to 16. This may not match your system. Make sure to verify all
mapping points and set unmapped elements to bus 0 (unused) to ensure proper operation. Send the Save
Non-Volatile Command to ensure the mapping is maintained.

Description
Indicates if the loop is hosted locally (0) or
remotely (1). If the sensor is mapped to the RM
bus or optical inputs or Remote PV then loops are
locally executed in the RMZ4 modules. If the
sensors are in the ST, PM, SL-10, or CLS then the
loops are remote since those devices are fully
integrated controllers.
Defines the bus the loop uses for the control
sensor.
0 = Unused
1 = RM
2 = Legacy ST/PM
3 = Modbus
4 = Internal Optical Sensor Card
5 = Remote PV from 0x3000:0x13
Defines which zone or address that is hosting this
sensor input. For EZ-ZONE products it is the zone
number displayed on the front. For EHG SL-10 it is
the Modbus address. Optical sensors 1-4 are local
in the RMZ4 so this value does not have meaning.
Independent RMF optical modules are considered
sensor type 1 – on the backplane.
Defines which sensor instance on a particular zone
for devices that have multiple inputs. For instance,
an RMS module can have 16 TC inputs.
To map to sensor 5 on RMS zone 3:
Select Bus 2, Zone 3, Instance 5.

Description
Sets the heat gain as a proportional band.
Increase reduces gain and increases stability.
Decreasing increases responsiveness.
Sets the rate the power increases or decreases.
This will pull the temperature to set point. A
low value integrates power quickly but can
cause instability.
Sets the derivative time constant. Reacts in
opposition to changes in the process. Unless
the system has significant lag, this value should
be kept low or even zero.
Cooling action is Off, PID, or On/Off
The gain of the cooling part of the control loop.
This is in effect if the cool mode is PID.
If the cool mode is ON/OFF this is the switching
hysteresis.
This is the space between the heating and the
cooling regions to keep the system from
oscillating continuously between heat and cool.
It can also be set to a negative value so the

Sets a warning point for the probe LED current.
The default is 15mA. When the LED current
exceeds this level the status indicator on the
front on the module will flash green and red
alternately. This can occur if the optical
pathway is becoming opaque or the extension
cable is not properly seated.
Indicates an error with the sensor probe.
Indicates the optical sensor LED current used to
actuate the luminescent probe. Increasing
current can indicate increasing attenuation in
the extension cable.
ETHERCAT® ADAPTER
8.3 OPEN LOOP DETECT
RMZ4 has the capability to detect if the control loop is out of control. The loop is detected as being “open” if
the manipulated value of output power is not having an effect on the measure process value. Open loops can
be caused by various issues. Open fuses, heaters or interlock contactors will prevent power from reaching the
load. Sensors that are not in proper contact with the load will not detect changes in temperature correctly.
This will cause thermal runaway. Since loads change at different rates and respond to power differently the
feature is configured with an amount of change expected in a period of time. Typically the process value will
not increase at all in response to 100% output power. Set the value conservatively to prevent false trips. For
example, If the process would normally change 20 degrees per minute at 100% power, the feature could be set
to 5 degrees in 60 seconds. This would trip if the measured process value does not change at less than ¼ its
normal rate.

8.5 OVER-TEMPERATURE LIMITS
Over-temperature cut off is accomplished using an independent limit. The EZ-ZONE family has physically
integrated yet independent limit circuits to provide thermal protection. Systems can be protected from
thermal runaway by interlocking through the relay output of the limit circuit. The limit has its own input sensor
to configure as well as trip points to configure. The limit relay will open if a limit condition occurs. The limit
must be cleared by the system master after the limit condition has cleared, it will not self clear.

ALARM GROUPS
Each loop has a process and deviation alarm. These can be individually mapped to output. However many
application want to trigger an output is any of a group of alarms is active. The RMZ4 provides 8 alarm groups
to facilitate alarm aggregation. Each group may be mapped to a digital output. The group provides a means to
pick which active alarms are part of the group from any control loop. The groups are configured in the 0x5F00
object. The control loops are assigned a group in the 8 Pick Lists 0x5F01 to 0x5F08. The groups are not
slot/module based since they are not associated one to one with the control loops. Groups can be used to
energize a contactor when all control loops associated with that power distribution bus are operating properly.

9 SETTING PARAMETERS AND RUNNING
With the I/O mapped to the correct RM or ST the system is ready to be setup and run. Consider if it makes
sense to execute a SaveNonVolatile command to store all the I/O mapping for immediate recall on power-up.
While a typical EtherCAT® system will write all required parameter to the RMZ4 while before the operational
mode is started, there is advantage to store the most desired configuration then ensure it is correct by
checking or simply writing again. This eliminates configuration latency on power up.
9.1 USING PDOS
Each loop has a default set of PDO input and outputs for normal sensor monitoring and set point and mode
delivery. Each loop also has a set of user definable PDOs. The user can load these with parameters of interest
on a loop by loop basis. The only limitation is that the items loaded into each loop must be parameters
belonging to that loop.
9.2 RUNNING
To operate the control loops, the loop must have the Control State set to On. The Safe Mode defines if the
control loops can continue to operate if the EtherCAT® state transitions to the Safe State to prevent undesired
cool-downs if desired. The Target Set Point, Control Mode, and Control State are by default provided by the
Output PDOs once the system entered the operational mode. The must be set using the PDOs then the device
is in operational mode.
9.3 TUNING
Tuning is a process that sets the PID values for a control loop automatically using a standard Zielger-Nichols
algorithm. The system is put into oscillation below the Set point. The controller observes the responses to
determine the systems gain and time constant. From that information appropriate PID values are calculate and
put into effect. The process will return the controller to normal closed loop mode once the tune in complete.
The control loops may be tuned individually, in groups, or all at the same time via the InitiateTune command.
The PID value can be set directly as well. The tune command takes a list of loops to tune. This is a string of
bytes. This list of byte 0102030A10 will initiate a tune of loops 1, 2, 3, 10, and 16. To see if a loop is tuning, look
at the TuneActive bit in the 0x6nn0:04. Sending 0 as the list will initiate a tune on all configured loops.
Tuning can be cancel on any loop using the CancelTune command. This uses the same command strings as the
InitiateTune command, individual loops with a list or all with 0.

DEFAULT RXPDO
This is the data received by the controller every scan cycle (usually 1-10ms as controlled by the master). It is
configured at index 0x1600 predefined standard data points and 0x1601 for user defined data points for loop1,
0x1602/0x1603 for loop2, etc. The parameters in the user defined (odd numbered) PDO can be changed by
changing the Entry Index and Entry Sub Index contained in the PDO sub index but this is global, not on a permodule basis. The even PDOs are a standard set defined by the Standard Device Profile (SDP) and are fixed.

Users can define their own PDO data in the 0x1601, 0x1603, 0x1605… Any RX map-able PDO can be placed in
this area. Each module/slot can have its own User RxPDO set. The only constraint is that the parameters must
be part of this Loop/Module.

11 CONTROL OPERATION
11.1
NETWORK STATE AND CONTROL STATES
EtherCAT® networks have a defined state Boot, Init, Pre-OP, Safe-Op and Operational. The control loops will
function as defined by the Safe State Parameter 0x8nnn SI 0x16 at startup until the network state changes to
Operational. At that point the Control State will change from OFF to RUN (if the Desired Control State is set to
RUN).
If the control loops running in the EtherCAT® module lose connection with the RMS module, the loop will enter
a fault state and the control mode for that loop will go to the Safe Mode configured in parameter 0x8nnn SI
0x16.
If the outputs in the RME modules lose connection with the control loop in the EtherCAT® adapter module, the
modules will turn off until the link is re-established.
The exception reporting will indicate the loss of communication with modules in the system.
11.2
DATA RETENTION
EtherCAT® master applications typically configure the application on power-up to ensure correct settings
before the system is made operational. Configuration will not be stored to non-volatile memory automatically.
The master must issue an explicit store of parameters to non-volatile memory command. It does not occur
implicitly behind the scenes.
To cause the configuration parameters to be stored to non-volatile memory, the master needs to write to
Command 0xFBF2 with 0x65766173 to cause the parameters to be stored. The advantage of storing in nonvolatile is the system I/O will be configured properly at power-up before the master ensures it is correct.
11.3
CONTROL LOOPS
The EtherCAT® adapter supports up to 48 control loops that execute in the adapter itself. The process variable
for each loop is consumed from the RMS, RMH, or RMC modules. The outputs generated by the control loops
are published and the RME, RMC modules are configured to consume these as their power level. The control
loops will function as soon as the Control State is set to RUN. Once the system is operational, you can use the
Autotune command to determine PID values that are optimal for the system.
11.4
ALARMS
The EtherCAT® adapter module has two alarms per control loop. Alarm1 is a process alarm and Alarm2 is a
deviation alarm. The PV source for each loop is mapped to the PV and SP for the associated alarms. The user
may enable or disable each alarm but the alarm type and sources cannot be changed. The alarm status is
available in the 0x6000 objects and in the exception object 0xF381.

12.1
BLUETOOTH®
The EtherCAT® adapter can host an optional Bluetooth® module that contains the antenna, radio and
firmware. This interface can assist with monitoring you system during development and test. This port streams
XML containing readings and parameters. Android applications will be forthcoming.
The Bluetooth® module can be powered down from the processor for secure environments ensuring it will not
pair.
The EtherCAT® devices will be identified on the Bluetooth® network as “EtherCATXXXXXXXX” where XXXXXXXX
is the devices serial number. The device will appear in Windows® as a COM port.
This device complies with Part 18 of the FCC Rules (Section 18.212) and contains a Transmitter Module.

IC: 8828A-MOD4
Bluetooth SIG Qualified Design, QD ID: B019224
MODBUS® SLAVE
The 2000, 3000, 4001, 6000, 7000, 8000 indexes map into the 6000 and 7000 banks of Modbus® registers with
each control loop instance having an offset of 50. The primary purpose is to support HMI user interfaces that
are Modbus masters.
12.3
MODBUS® MASTER
Not implemented in release 1. This will collect data from modus slave devices and present it in the EtherCAT®
data model, allowing control of legacy Modbus controllers.
13 FLASH LOADING
13.1
OVER ETHERCAT®
The device firmware may be updated over EtherCAT using the FoE (File over EtherCAT) service. This is the
process:
1.
2.
3.
4.
The master placed the RMZ4 in BOOT mode to accept the file.
The master download the file (*.bin) via FOE
The master changes the mode to INIT.
The slave will then program itself with the downloaded file. This will take several seconds and include a
reboot.
5. The slave will enter the INIT state with the new firmware in place.
13.2
OVER USB
Flash updates via USB require a flash update application on a PC that contains the embedded binary image.
