RECEIVING NUMERIC DATA WITH GI[x] USING DI[x]

This procedure sets up communication using Group Inputs through Digital Inputs. This is a simple way to receive numeric data from another device in the field. Group Input 2 will be set as a 16-bit word. DI[33] to DI[48] will be used to receive the data. Digital Inputs must be configured as usual. This procedure is typical for Omron NX I/O block.

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 In”)
      5. PRESS --> [ F2 ] [ CONFIG ]
      6. Using arrow on line GI #2, ENTER --> 89 in “RACK” column. (Corresponding to Ethernet I/P rack number).
      7. PRESS --> [ ENTER ]
      8. Using arrow on line GI #2, 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 GI #2, ENTER --> 49 in “START PT” column. (Corresponding Start bit of Ethernet I/P set up for Digital outputs) Remember, the first 16 bits are taken for Omron NX I/O block status.
      11. PRESS --> [ ENTER ]
      12. Using arrow on line GI #2, 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)

End results : For instance, if DI[33] to DI[36] are ON, then GI[2] = 15 (0000 0000 0000 1111 = 15) (see screenshot mceclip1.png)
