SENDING NUMERIC DATA WITH DO[x] using GO[x]

This procedure sets up communication with Digital Outputs using through a Group Output. This is a simple way to transmit numeric data to another device in the field. Group Output 1 will be set as a 16-bit word. DO[33] to DO[48] will be used to transmit the data. Digital Outputs must be configured as usual. This procedure is typical for Omron NX I/O block.

 DURATION

+/- 15 minutes

  RECOMMENDATION  

Make sure to create a backup of your settings before making any modifications.

  DANGER  

If your Inputs/Outputs aren't set properly, a mechanical system could be activated by inadvertence.

 

VIDEO TUTORIAL

 

STEP BY STEP

      1. PRESS --> [ I/O ]
      2. PRESS --> [ F1 ] [ TYPE ]
      3. SELECT --> [ 5 ] 5 GROUP (see screenshot mceclip1.png)
      4. PRESS --> [ IN/OUT ] (If you don’t have the screen of “I/O Group Out”)
      5. PRESS --> [ F2 ] CONFIG
      6. Using Arrow on line of GO #1, ENTER --> 89 in “RACK” column. (Corresponding to Ethernet I/P rack number)
      7. PRESS --> [ ENTER ]
      8. Using Arrow on line of GO #1, ENTER --> 1 in “SLOT” column. (Corresponding Slot of Ethernet I/P set up for this particular device)
      9. PRESS --> [ ENTER ]
      10. Using Arrow on line of GO #1, ENTER --> 33 in “START PT” column. (Corresponding Start bit of Ethernet I/P set up for Digital outputs)
      11. PRESS --> [ ENTER ]
      12. Using Arrow on line of GO #1, ENTER --> 16 in “NUM PTS” column. (Corresponding to the number of bits composing the numeric data. In this case, it is a 16 bits word) 
      13. PRESS --> [ ENTER ] (see screenshot mceclip1.png)
      14. PRESS --> [ FCTN ]
      15. SELECT --> [ 0 ] 0 NEXT
      16. SELECT --> [ 8 ] 8 CYCLE POWER (see screenshot mceclip1.png)
      17. PRESS --> [ YES ] (see screenshot mceclip1.png)

 To check if this procedure works, put in a program something like this line: GO[1]= 65535. Run this line in STEP mode. All Digital Outputs from DO[33] to DO[48] will be ON. (see screenshot mceclip1.png)
