  RECOMMANDATION  

Create a robot backup before changing the mapping of the ethernet module.

  WARNING!  

The robot will need a reboot after a ethernet IP modification.

STEP BY STEP

ETHERNET/IP SET UP

Install the input card. 16 inputs card = 2 bytes. This procedure will set up DI[49] to DI[64] as usable inputs.

      1. PRESS --> [ I/O ]
      2. PRESS --> [ F1 ] [TYPE]
      3. SELECT --> [ 0 ] 0 NEXT
      4. SELECT --> [ 3 ] 3 EtherNet/IP (see screenshot mceclip1.png)
      5. Using Arrow --> Move right to "Enable" column
      6. PRESS --> [ F5 ] FALSE (see screenshot mceclip1.png)
      7. Using Arrow --> Move left to highlight OmronNX
      8. PRESS --> [ F4 ] CONFIG
      9. Using Arrow --> Scroll down to the line "Input size (bytes)"
      10. If no Euromap installed, ENTER --> 10 (2 bytes for NX Status and 2 bytes for each input cards)
      11. PRESS --> [ ENTER ]
      12. If Euromap installed, ENTER -->12 (2 bytes for NX Status and 2 bytes for each input cards) (see screenshot mceclip1.png)
      13. PRESS --> [ ENTER ]
      14. PRESS --> [ F3 ] PREV
      15. On Omron NX line, using Arrow, --> Move right to "Enable" column
      16. PRESS --> [ F4 ] TRUE (see screenshot mceclip1.png)

DIGITAL INPUT SET UP

      1. PRESS --> [ F1 ] [TYPE]
      2. SELECT --> [ 3 ] 3 DIGITAL (see screenshot mceclip1.png)
      3. PRESS --> [ F3 ] IN/OUT (If not available, PRESS --> [NEXT] )
      4. Display DI
      5. PRESS --> [ F2 ] CONFIG
      6. If no EUROMAP is installed: Modify the range of the first DI[ ] attribution: Instead of 48 write 64. (see screenshot mceclip1.png)
      7. PRESS --> [ ENTER ] (You will see “PEND.” In yellow at the end of the line)
      8. If Euromap is installed: Set another range of DI[x] like this: With Arrow, Scroll down to line 2
      9. Instead of 208, ENTER --> 64
      10. Move right to "Rack column", ENTER --> 89
      11. PRESS --> [ ENTER ]
      12. Move right to "Slot column", ENTER --> 1
      13. PRESS --> [ ENTER ]
      14. Move right to "Start column", ENTER --> 81 (see screenshot mceclip1.png)
      15. PRESS --> [ ENTER ] (You will see “PEND.” In yellow at the end of the line)
      16. PRESS --> [ FCTN ]
      17. SELECT --> [ 0 ] 0 NEXT
      18. SELECT --> [ 8 ] 8 CYCLE POWER (see screenshot mceclip1.png)
      19. PRESS --> [ YES ] (see screenshot mceclip1.png)

The Digital input config should look like this:

Bits 17 to 64 are attributed to DI[1] to DI[48]. Bits 65 to 80 are attributed to DI[209] to DI[224] which is the Euromap 67 option. Bits 81 to 96 are attributed to DI[49] to DI[64]. The first 2 bytes of the Digital inputs are attributed to Omron NX status. With this setup, the Euromap input card is the fourth one on the rack. When you add input cards, always put them after the Euromap card. If no Euromap is installed, then you can install them after the ones already on the rack.
