INTRODUCTION

User’s Manual

Introduction to the EZText Enhanced Panel

The EZText Enhanced Panels provide a man-machine interface to your PLC automation system. The panels provide features such as 5 user-defi ned

pushbuttons with LED indicators, arrow adjust buttons, and a built-in menu system. The panels communicate with a PLC using either RS-232C or RS-

422A/485A serial communication. Confi guration software and panel programming are covered in chapter 5 of this manual.

The panels allow you to confi gure up to 256 20-character text strings confi gured as PLC Messages and Local Messages. Local Messages are internal panel messages that the operator can scroll in a menu tree hierarchy. PLC Messages are displayed when prompted from the PLC program. A PLC Message LED illuminates whenever a PLC Message is being displayed. Either message type can have up to three embedded data variables, one of which can be edited by using the arrow adjust buttons.

The panels have sealed membrane function pushbuttons that allow you to trigger

PLC actions with the push of a button. These pushbuttons are used for input signals to the PLC. Each pushbutton can be confi gured to function as one of three switch types:

ALTERNATE—keeps its current state until the button is pushed again

PANEL SET AND PLC RELEASE —sets a bit in the PLC when pressed and is reset by either the PLC program or by pressing the button again.

The LCD display window supports two or four message lines that can display up to 20 characters each. The messages are programmed using the EZText

Enhanced Programming Software. The message control type may be either

static—text displays that have NO embedded data, dynamic —text messages that include embedded data (READ access only), or interactive —text messages that allow the operator to enter data, or change values that are stored in the PLC registers (READ/WRITE access).

The EZText Enhanced Panel is available in a variety of models to suit your application. Key features are provided on page 10.

INTRODUCTION

Annunciator Lamps

The EZ-220P & EZ-220PV models contain 3 tri-color Annunciator Lamps above the LCD message window. Each of these lamps may be programmed to illuminate in green, amber, or red and may be labeled to fi t your application. The lamps are turned ON and OFF through your PLC ladder logic program. They are confi gured with EZText Enhanced Programming Software and may be confi gured to display status or the condition of any operation being controlled within the PLC.

Data Entry (Keypad) Pushbuttons

The EZ-220P & EZ-220PV also feature a numeric keypad.

Use this keypad to enter or change embedded data values.

To update or enter a data value, the enter button must be pressed to select the data value. Then you may use the numeric keypad or the UP Arrow (increment) or DOWN

Arrow (decrement) to adjust the value. For the PLC to acknowledge the change in value, you must press enter again (sends the updated value to the PLC.) The CE

( Clear Entry) button is used to clear, or set back to zero, the current value.

PLC Message LED

This LED will illuminate to indicate that the PLC has triggered a message that will be displayed in the LCD window. The pushbuttons are disabled for 3 seconds after a PLC message is displayed to ensure that the operator sees the message. The LED will turn OFF when the operator presses the escape pushbutton, thereby acknowledging message received.

Function Pushbuttons

Control Pushbuttons

There are 4 Control Pushbuttons on the front panel. These buttons consist of an esc ( escape), ( UP Arrow), ( DOWN Arrow), and enter pushbutton. The arrow buttons are used to scroll through local messages or to change a value within an interactive message. As the operator presses the buttons, the numeric value will increment or decrement, respectively. As it is adjusted, the value

WILL NOT BE UPDATED in the PLC data register until the enter pushbutton is pressed. When completed, the operator will press the enter pushbutton and the value will be written to the PLC. Press esc to abort or cancel the adjustment without writing the value to the PLC.

Function Pushbuttons

There are 5 Function Pushbuttons that are user-defi ned. They may be confi gured as one of three “ switch” types; Alternate, Momentary, or Panel Set & PLC

Release (described on page 69.) They are confi gured as discrete input signals to the PLC. These pushbuttons are labeled F1 through F5 or may be custom

labeled to suit their function or application.

Pushbutton LEDs

There are LEDs located above each of the user-defi ned pushbuttons. These

LEDs can indicate if the pushbutton status condition is ON or OFF, or it can be controlled independently by a PLC. You may choose the type of LED Control while confi guring your panel (see Confi guration, Chapter 5). There are three different controls— By Button, By Button & Flash, or By PLC, that will determine

LED response when the pushbuttons are pressed.

Messages

PLC Messages can be programmed to display PLC register values and allow the operator to change a PLC register value. Up to 3 data variables can be programmed to display in each message. The messages are entered using EZText

Enhanced Programming Software. Up to 256 PLC Messages may be confi gured and stored in the EZText Enhanced Panel. PLC Messages are numbered 1 to

256. The message control type may be static text, dynamic, or interactive. The

PLC logic program controls which messages are displayed. The PLC Message

LED illuminates when a PLC generated message is being displayed.

Local Messages are also displayed in the LCD Display Window. Local Messages provide pertinent information or instructions to the operator and are displayed in a menu hierarchy. They can also be programmed to display values from a

PLC register that the operator may change using the EZText Enhanced control buttons. You may create Folders to group messages pertaining to the same topic.

Local Messages and Folders can be grouped in up to 3 levels using the EZText

Enhanced Programming Software. The fi rst character in a Folder message display is a “+” or “–” indicating folder status (closed or open). The next 19 characters of the display are for the Folder text (Messages do not have a + or -, so all 20

EMI Noise Filter Installation

EZText Enhanced Panels are supplied with two ferrite cores that should be attached to the cables prior to installation of the EZText Enhanced Panel. These cores are required to suppress EMI emissions that are conducted through the

Power Cable and the Communications Cable. The fi gure, below, shows the ferrite cores properly installed. Attach the cores within one inch of the EZText

Enhanced connector. The cable should be snugly wrapped once around the core, providing two passes through the core.

The Power Cable Core is a solid ferrite cylinder. The Power Cable should pass once through the core, be looped around and pass through a second time. Pull the excess cable so that it rests snugly against the outside of the core.

The Communications Cable Core is a snap-together, split, ferrite core. This core can be installed on a fi nished cable. Lift the latch to open the core. Wrap the wire through the core center, snugly around the outside, and again through the center. Close the core until the latch snaps. Ensure that the cable jacket is not pinched between the two halves of the core. The fi nished cable should look similar to the drawing shown below.

Connector

This block style connector is used to connect an external 24 VDC power supply.

The connector with screw terminals is provided with your EZText Enhanced Panel and allows you to plug into the power receptacle. A pinout is shown below.

An external power supply is adapted to supply operating voltage to the EZText

Enhanced Panel. The power supply must deliver a range of 20 to 30 VDC.

In multi-panel applications, if separate power supplies are used, please ensure the electrical ground common does not have a great potential difference. In a multi-panel application, the power supply must maintain the specifi ed voltage and current consumption under all conditions (this includes powerup) for each of the individual units. Please refer to the specifi cations on page 14 for the individual units.

Connect (+) on the unit to the (+) lead of your power source; (-) on the unit is connected to the (-) lead; and chassis

GND (on the unit) is connected to the chassis ground of the cabinet. It is recommended you use a regulated power source isolated from relays, valves, etc.

Serial Port

EZ-TEXT-M-E

The Serial Port may be used to connect your panel to a programming computer (PC) or a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). You will only need to connect to a PC when you initially confi gure and program the EZText

Enhanced Panel. The Serial Port is then available for connection to the PLC.

When you power up the EZText Enhanced Panel, it will come up in RUN Mode.

While in RUN Mode the Serial Port will only communicate with a PLC. To program the panel and have the Serial Port communicate with a PC, you will have to enter the SETUP Mode (see following paragraph).

Connect a Programming PC

To program the EZText Enhanced Panel, you must put the panel into SETUP

Mode. When the panel is powered up, it will be operating in the RUN Mode.

To enter the SETUP Mode, you must press and hold the UP Arrow button while simultaneously pressing the DOWN Arrow button. ( Please Note: While in the

SETUP Mode you may also adjust the screen contrast by pressing the UP or

Memory Mapping/ PLC Data Registers

The EZText Enhanced Panels communicate with the PLC through user-defi ned

PLC data registers. PLC registers are assigned during confi guration using the EZText Enhanced Programming Software. For discrete operations, such as pushbuttons and LEDs, the register bits are accessed by the PLC control program. The following page shows how the pushbuttons and LEDs are assigned to the PLC bit registers.

EZ-TEXT-M-E

User’s Manual

Pushbuttons

Pushbuttons use one 16-bit register. All bit designations are in octal (0–7 and

10–17), used by DirectLogic PLCs. Use bits 0 through 15 for PLCs using decimal numbering. Address used here must be READ/WRITE.

User’s Manual

PLC Message Registers

The EZ-220, EZ-220V, EZ-220L, EZ-420, EZ-220P, and EZ-220PV panels have 2 or 4 lines of PLC Message display. Each message line references a user-defi ned register in the PLC. The registers are assigned using the EZText

Enhanced Programming Software. The panel monitors each register for a value

(message number) and displays the message associated with the value (i.e., a value of 3 displays message 3).

Embedded Data Registers

Each message can have up to three embedded data values, DATA 1, DATA 2, and DATA 3. Embedded data registers are user-defi ned.

DATA 1 (16-Bit Register, READ/WRITE)

This is a PLC register that contains the fi rst of three possible embedded data values on a line for the message displayed. DATA 1 can be set as a READ/

WRITE Register allowing the operator to change a data value. It can also be set to READ ONLY. This is the only data value that has this option.

33

User’s Manual

PLC CONTROLLED DECIMAL POINT (16-Bit Register)

This is a register in the PLC for controlling a decimal point within an embedded data value (DATA 1 only). One register holds the value and the other controls the decimal point. The register addresses are assigned from the Message

Edit screen as shown above. No ASCII characters are allowed in DATA 1 with a PLC controlled decimal point.

DATA 2 (16-Bit Register, READ ONLY)

This is a PLC register that contains the second of three possible embedded data values on a line for the message displayed. You may manually insert a decimal point. The PLC Address and Data Type are assigned from the Message Edit screen, shown above.

DATA 3 (16-Bit Register, READ ONLY)

This is a PLC register that contains the third of three possible embedded data values on a line for the message displayed. You may manually insert a decimal point. The PLC Address and Data Type are assigned from the Message Edit screen, shown above.

34

EZ-TEXT-M-E

User’s Manual

PLC Messages and Local Messages

Embedded Data

The user message contains the ASCII characters and optional embedded data to be displayed. The embedded data can be up to 3 different values — DATA

1, DATA 2, and DATA 3.

Special characters in the message determine where the embedded data from the registers should go. When programming, each character for DATA

1 values will be represent by a “1” for up to fi ve digits. For example, if you want to display a fi ve digit value from the

PLC, you will press Ctrl + 1 or F5, fi ve times, and “11111” will display in your message (in red) representing the fi ve digit value.

Please NOTE:

When selecting BCD

Data Type, only a 4digit value can be used (0–9999).

Only DATA 1’s embedded value can be Interactive (READ/WRITE register), meaning that data values will display and can be changed from the message.

DATA 2 and DATA 3 are Dynamic (READ ONLY register) meaning that they will display a value, but the value cannot be changed from the message. DATA

2 values are entered into the message by pressing Ctrl +2 or F6, and are represented by a “2” for each numeric digit, displayed in blue. DATA 3 values are entered into the message by pressing Ctrl +3 or F7, and are represented by a “3” for each numeric digit, displayed in green. Again, these values can be up to fi ve digits. Data values are only represented by a “1,” “2,” or “3” when you are programming the message. The actual values will be displayed on the EZText

Enhanced Panel LCD Display window, or will be blank if no value is present.

( Password Protection is only available with EZText Enhanced Panel Models

EZ-220P and EZ-220PV.)

For DATA 1, you can select a minimum and maximum range for the embedded data value. The Maximum is to test for the upper limit for the data value and

Minimum is to test for the lower limit for the data value. This will let the user update the value between the ranges. Data values are incremented or decremented with the UP/DOWN Arrow Buttons.

Also for DATA 1, you can choose to have the Decimal Point in the value controlled by the PLC, or you can manually insert it in the message.

User’s Manual

Message Types

There are three types of messages: Static, Dynamic, and Interactive identify the different message types.

Static Messages

Static Messages are text displays that have NO embedded data. The Static

Message may be displayed when an event or condition becomes true. You will enter

SYSTEM RUNNING the messages using the EZText Enhanced Programming Software.

Dynamic Messages

Dynamic messages are text messages that include embedded data. These messages are used to display values from the PLC

(READ only access to a PLC register). This data is information that helps the operator closely monitor and/or control the machine or process.

Zone1 Temp. : 753

Data Value update from

PLC register

Embedded Data Values in messages can be of two types — BCD or Binary. DATA 1 can have a decimal point controlled by the PLC or manually inserted. DATA 2 and DATA 3 allow you to manually insert a decimal point. The maximum number of data values per message is three. Data type and decimal points are programmed when confi guring the message from the Message Edit screen.

Interactive Messages

(With an embedded DATA 1 value, only). An

Interactive Message is commonly used for operator data entry. This type of message is used for changing values that are stored in the PLC registers (READ/WRITE access).

These values are typically; Setpoint, Upper and Lower Limits, etc. Interactive Messages may be confi gured to enter data using the

UP/DOWN Arrow buttons.

Enter New Temp. = 300

Data value entered by operator

Displaying PLC Messages

PLC Messages are triggered by the PLC. The PLC Message LED will illuminate to let you know that the PLC has generated the message. You cannot press the esc key to exit the PLC Message mode until 3 seconds after the message has been triggered. This delay is to ensure that the message has been seen

EZ-TEXT-M-E

EZ-TEXT-M-E

User’s Manual

by the operator. After the 3 seconds, press the esc key and you will return to

Local Message mode. If you press the esc key again, the last PLC Message will be redisplayed.

Static Message Operation

To display a Static PLC message, you simply put the message number (1–256) in the appropriate PLC register. These messages are text only, no embedded data.

Dynamic Message Operation

Dynamic messages are text messages that include embedded data. These messages present the operator with important PLC data. You may program message numbers 1–256 to be used as dynamic messages. Dynamic messages may be displayed on either the top or bottom line. The maximum number of digits that may be displayed is fi ve (if Binary data format or four if BCD). Use the EZText Enhanced Programming Software to confi gure Dynamic messages.

See Section 7, Confi guration, for more information.

Interactive Message Operation

An interactive message is a text display that allows operator data entry. Use these messages to enter or change values that are stored in PLC registers. When the interactive message is displayed, the operator can enter data. Check the PLC product user manual to verify which data formats are supported. Depending on the PLC, the data format will be either Binary or BCD ( Binary Coded Decimal).

Five digits may be entered in a 16-bit register using Binary data format. Four digits may be entered in a 16-bit register using BCD data format.

Interactive messages are confi gured within the EZText Enhanced Programming

Software by embedding a DATA 1 value in a PLC message. An interactive message requires that you defi ne the Format (Binary or BCD), and Decimal Point

Position. There are two types of decimal point placements — PLC controlled and

fi xed placement (decimal point entered between characters when confi guring the message). A PLC controlled decimal is only allowed in DATA 1. DATA 2 and

DATA 3 allow you to enter a fi xed point (manually inserted). Two PLC registers are used to store PLC controlled decimal point values, one for the data value and the other for decimal point control. When the decimal point is PLC controlled it must be confi gured in your PLC logic program. For more information, see Chapter 5,

Confi guration, or your PLC Confi guration Manual.

Arrow Adjustment Entry

Arrow adjust is often used when minimum and maximum setpoint ranges are required or a setpoint value requires only minor adjustment. These arrow adjustments are only possible using the UP or DOWN Arrow pushbuttons.

37

User’s Manual

As you press the UP and DOWN Arrow pushbuttons, the numeric value will increment (up) or decrement (down) one count at a time. When the UP/DOWN

Arrow buttons are used to increment or decrement a value, the cursor is disabled and will not be visible again until you press enter, esc, or return from an error or

PLC message. Also, the longer you hold the key down, the faster the count will increase. When the adjustment is complete, press the enter pushbutton, and the value will be placed in the data register for display and the bit is set.

*Numeric Keypad Entry

Numeric Keypad entry is used when a decimal point is being used and is the preferred method for data entry instead of arrow adjust. The decimal point button must be used when entering a decimal value.

*Annunciator Lamps

There are three tri-color lamps located above the LCD Message Display. They can be illuminated as red, amber or green through the PLC program.

PLC Message LED

The PLC Message LED will illuminate any time a PLC message is being displayed.

Press the esc key to exit the PLC message and return to Local Messages. Press

esc again to re-display the last PLC message.

*These features are only available in models EZ-220P and EZ-220PV.

Displaying Local Messages

In a Local Message, the fi rst message ( root level) or folder in the hierarchy is displayed on the top line at start up and the following message or folder is displayed on the second line.

A plus (+) is displayed in front of a folder’s or subfolder’s name if it is closed.

If a folder or subfolder is open, a minus (–) is placed in front of the name. Any messages within that folder will be displayed below it.

+Local Folder 1

+Local Folder 2

–Local Folder 2

Local Message 2.1

Therefore, a folder is limited to 19 characters after the + or -, a message allows

20 characters. (The EZText Enhanced Programming Software only allows 19 characters for folder text when you are confi guring the Local Messages.)

You may use the UP/DOWN Arrow buttons to scroll down to the next message in that folder. At the end of the messages for that folder, you can press the esc button to move to the previous folder or level.

The Local Message menu hierarchy can only extend three levels deep (after the root level) but each folder (level 1 and level 2) may have many subfolders or messages on that level. Folder level 3 may have many messages, but no folders.

Messages can contain up to three embedded data values. See the following examples of a menu tree and how it may appear from within the EZText Enhanced

Programming Software and how it may appear on your display.

Fuse Reset

The EZText Enhanced Panel features an AUTO-RESET fuse (0.65 Amp polyfuse). It is reset by removing power for 5 minutes and then reapplying power to the unit.

Precautions

To ensure the longevity and effectiveness of the EZText Enhanced Panel, please take note of the following precautions:

• Do not press sharp objects against the pushbuttons or screen overlay.

• Do not strike the panel with hard objects.

• Do not press the pushbuttons or screen overlay with excessive force.

• Once the panel is mounted and has power applied, do not place any objects over the ventilation slots. This will result in heat buildup and may damage the unit.

Screen Overlay/ Chemical Compatibility

The screen overlay has a polycarbonate surface. The following list is provided to make you aware of the general compatibility between chemicals that may be present in your work environment and the polyester surface of the overlay. Use the chart to determine those chemicals that are safe to use around your EZText

Enhanced Panel and those that may harm the overlay. The list rates these chemicals as E—Excellent, G—Good, F—Fair, and N—Not Recommended.

Troubleshooting

In this section we will explain how to isolate potential problems. If you cannot isolate and remedy the problem using the procedures we have outlined below, call technical support. For a list of EZText Enhanced Panels, EZText Enhanced

Programming Software, and PLC Driver Error Messages, see Appendix C.

Panel Confi guration Problems

EZText Enhanced Programming Software is used to create panel applications and to download/upload panel programs. If you are online with the EZText Enhanced

Panel and communication fails, the following error message is displayed:

EZ-TEXT-M-E

If you receive this EZText Enhanced Programming Software error message, check the following:

1. On the rear panel of the unit, observe Serial Port Communication

TXD/RXD LEDs while attempting to Upload/Download a program.

Both LEDs should be slowly and alternately fl ashing to indicate that the programming PC and the panel are connected. If the TXD (transmitter)

LED is the only one fl ashing, or if the TXD/RXD LEDs are NOT alternating between fl ashes, check to ensure that the EZText Enhanced

Panel is set to the Setup (programming) Mode. (To enter the Setup

Mode, press and hold the UP Arrow Button while simultaneously pressing the DOWN Arrow button.)

2. Check to ensure that the programming cable (part number EZTEXT-

PGMCBL) is properly connected at both ends.

3. Check that the correct communications port is selected with the EZText

Enhanced Programming Software (i.e., COM1, COM2)

4. Check the 24 VDC power source and its connections.

5. After completing steps 1 through 4, above, repeat the procedure to

Upload/Download a program.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) do format an address string when connecting to multiple

PLCs?

Add the PLC station number to the beginning of the address string. Ex:

PLC station is 3 and the address is V2000 the string would look like this, 3-V2000.

2. Can I convert a project from one EZText Enhanced Panel type to

another?

Yes, to do this simply change the panel type from one to another.

This will keep all address and message information intact. The only exception is switching from any of the panels to the Set Point panel.

This will cause all messages and addressing to be deleted. Note:

Switching panel types does not create a new project. If you wish to create a new project select NEW from the FILE menu.

Can connect multiple panels to a single PLC?

Yes, there are two methods of doing this. The fi rst would be to use the multiplexer (P/N EZ-MULTIDROP). You can connect up to fi ve panels per multiplexer, and one multiplexer per serial port. The second method is to connect one panel per serial port.

4. What is the maximum number of messages I can have in a

project?

The maximum amount of PLC and Local messages is 256.

EZ-TEXT-M-E

A Local Message is a text message that is used to provide instructions or information to the machine operator using a hierarchical fi le structure.

The operator can scroll through these messages using the arrow keys to fi nd information pertaining to a particular part of a process.

6. What are PLC Messages?

A PLC Message is a text message that can be triggered by the PLC to provide the operator with important instructions, information, or warnings. PLC Messages will be displayed for 3 seconds before they can be cleared in order to make sure the operator has a chance to read the message. The operator can also view the last PLC Message displayed by pressing the esc key.

7. How many characters can I have per message?

The maximum number of characters per message is 20. This is true for all messages except folder names. They are limited to 19 because of the plus “+” or minus “-” sign displayed at the beginning of the folder

93

94

User’s Manual

name. (When using the Set Point panel, the maximum number of characters per message is 16.)

8. I am using an EZ-220 panel and I can not access the password option. How do I do this?

The only panel that can have password protection is the EZ-220P. This is because the EZ-220P is the only panel that has a key pad usable for data entry.

9.

What is the maximum number of Embedded Data values I can have in a project?

10. How do I get my panel into Setup Mode?

To get the panel into Setup Mode press and hold the up arrow key while simultaneously pressing the down arrow key. To exit Setup Mode, press the ESC key.

11. How do I get my panel to display PLC Messages?

To display a PLC message, using your ladder logic, place the number of the PLC Message you wish to display into one of the PLC Message

Line Addresses (up to four if using the EZ-420). When the message number is placed in this register the panel will display the message corresponding with that number.

Example: I want to display PLC Message One on Line One of my panel display. Using the ladder logic, I write a value of 1 to register V2000, which is set as PLC Message Line Address One. The panel displays

PLC Message One on Line One of my panel display. The message will remain on the display until the ESC key is pressed.

12. Why won’t the panel display the same PLC Message twice in a row on the same message line?

This is because the message line must be reset by either setting the

Line Register to zero, or by changing the value in the Line Register to some unused PLC Message number.

The panel locks out all key presses for 3 seconds after a PLC Message is displayed in order to ensure the operator has a chance to read the message. Pressing ESC 3 seconds after the PLC Message is displayed will display the local message screen.

EZ-TEXT-M-E

EZ-TEXT-M-E

User’s Manual

14. Do the EZText Enhanced Panels support discrete addresses?

No, the EZText Enhanced Panels do not support discrete addresses.

All addressing for the EZText Enhanced Panels must be in Word format.

do insert a PLC Message?

In order to insert a PLC Message, there must be a gap in the message numbers. For example, I have PLC Message #1 and PLC Message

#3 programmed. If I click on PLC Message #3 and click the INSERT A

PLC MESSAGE button, PLC Message #2 will be inserted between PLC

Messages 1 and 3.

16. Can I renumber PLC Messages?

Yes, you can renumber PLC Messages; however, when changing a message number to a higher message number, all unused lower message numbers will be sent as “blank” messages when the project is transferred to the panel. Blank messages will count towards the maximum number of allowed messages in a project (256).

Yes, you can copy and paste messages. Currently, however, you can copy or paste only one message at a time.

18. It is hard to read the display on my panel. It’s too bright. Is there a

way to adjust the contrast?

Yes, to adjust the contrast on the display, simply place the panel into

Setup Mode. While in Setup Mode you can use the up and down arrow keys to adjust the contrast.

19. How do I enter new or change existing values on my EZText

Enhanced Panel?

To enter a new value, or change an existing value on the EZText

Enhanced Panel, simply move the cursor (using the arrow keys) to the message you want to edit. Once the cursor is on the message, press the ENTER key on your EZText Enhanced Panel. This will move the cursor to the data set and allow you to change the value. Once the value is changed, press the ENTER key again to accept the new value and move the cursor back to the beginning of the message.
