8 Controller Basics - Programmable Controller - I/O (Inputs / Outputs) A set of coded instructions that enables a machine to perform a desired sequence of operations.To provide (a machine) with a set of coded working instructions.To train to perform automatically in a desired way.To prepare an instructional sequence- I/O (Inputs / Outputs)Input and Output communication between a controller and its "peripherals".- Program (RLL)Relay Ladder Logic. Similar to a one line electric diagram.- Operator InterfaceA device to let an operator monitor and adjust parameters on a machine or process through the controller.- NetworkingInterconnecting Controllers, Operator Interfaces and I/O to allow them all to communicate as one system.
9 Controller Basics Bit is One Decimal Place (Digital) A Byte is 8 Bits Either On or Off (1 or 0)A Byte is 8 Bits+127 to -128Word is 2 Bytes or 16 Bitsto ex = +37(used for Analog and Register values)(sign bit)
10 Bit Type I/O Type %I# Field Discrete Input to OCS. (Digital Inputs) %Q# Field Discrete Output from OCS. (Digital Outputs)%M# Internal Coils in OCS.%T# Internal Coils in OCS. Non-Retentive.%S# Internal Diagnostic Contacts.%K# Function Key Contacts.%D# Display bits used to turn on screens and for logical compares.
11 Word I/O Type%R# Internal 16 bit Registers used to store user data information. Timers, counters, and data storage.%AI# Field varying signal input to OCS.%AQ# Field varying signal output from OCS.%SR# Internal system values like Time/Date/Year, display, number, LED’s and more.
13 Cscape Communication Options - Serial- PC w/ Serial Port- USB to RS232 converter (HE500USB600)- Ethernet (Optional on Most Units)- PCI or ISA- USB to CAN Interface (K-CAN)- USB (Currently only on the XL6)
15 Communication Setup (Serial) Up to 255 Com Portsavailable.
16 Communication Setup (Ethernet) 3 different modes ofEthernet:GPRS – CellularNX/QX – EmbeddedXL Series – Optional
17 Communication Setup (CAN) 3 different CANInterfaces:CGM500 – ISAESD – PCIK CAN – USB or PCI
18 Communication Setup (Modem) Configures InternalModem and PhoneNumberNew in Cscape 8.6
19 Editor Options View Properties Dialog Auto-Save Deselect Element Open Last FileExport Setpoint DataAggressive DebugUse Classic CscapeUse Abbreviated PartNumbers
20 Editor Options View “Properties Dialog” after Snap-in of Element When checked, the programmer will need to assign addresses to the element after placement. The Properties Dialog box will automatically open.
21 Editor Options Auto-save When checked, this option will automatically save the program at that moment in time.Caution that this feature will not prompt the programmer that an Auto-save is about to take place so take care and archive programs.Return to Editor Options
22 Editor Options De-select element after placement If checked. After an element is placed on the screen, the arrow pointer will appear.If unchecked, the element will remain active until the arrow is selected from the Tool Bar or ESC is pressed.Return to Editor Options
23 Editor Options Open last file on startup If checked, Cscape will open the last saved file when Cscape is opened the next time.Return to Editor Options
24 Editor OptionsExport Setpoint DataReturn to Editor Options
25 Editor Options Use Aggressive Debug Screen Updates When checked, this option will update your PC’s video card more often than when it is not checked. On some PC’s if not checked, Debug may not indicate the true state of some elements.Return to Editor Options
26 Editor Options Use Classic Cscape Mode When checked, Cscape will have the same look and feel as pre-version 8.5.Return to Editor Options
27 Editor Options Use Abbreviated Part Numbers The US and European Offices have different part numbering structure for the same components. When checked, it will display the US part numbers in areas where part numbers are referenced.
29 Editor Options - Ladder Multiple Output CoilsAllow – Allows programmer to reference the same output coil multiple times without generating an error.Warning – Allows programmer to reference the same output coil multiple times but will generate an error when error checking is performed and when a download is performed. Warning will still allow the programmer to download the program.Error – Will generate an error when error checking is performed and when a download is attempted but will not allow a download.Return to Ladder Editor Options
30 Editor Options - Ladder Function BlocksWhen checked, allows programmer to branch around functions with a contact.An error will be generated at the time of a download if this is not checked and a branch around a function is performed.Return to Ladder Editor Options
31 Editor Options - Ladder Variable DisplayName and Address will display both the I/O name assigned to the variable, if assigned, and the address of the variable in Cscape.Address Only will display only the address of the variable in Cscape.Return to Ladder Editor Options
32 Editor Options - Ladder Advanced IEC LanguagesThis should be left as “Only Execute Advanced Ladder”
33 Editor Options - Numbering 2 options for laddering numbering:Line Numbers – Black NumbersRung Numbers – Shown in red aftera rung is created.Line numbers count all spaces andcomments where the rung numberonly increases when a rung is created.
34 Editor Options - Colors This sets the background color of Cscape.Take caution when using the followingcolors:Red – Debug is red so debug is difficultto view.Black – Rungs are black so impossibleto see rungs.White – Grid lines are white so gridlines are not viewable.
35 Connecting to a Controller Connect button is used to go online with the controller and offline with the controller when connecting serially to a controller. Pre-version 8.6, the software would capture the configured port when Cscape was opened.
36 Connecting to a Controller Local indicates the controller ID that the software is directly connected.Target indicates the ID that the software is attempting to communicate with.It is possible to have a Local and Target that are different.
37 Connecting to a Controller Things to verify if Cscape is not communicating with the controller:- Verify the state of the Local ID. If the local contains ???, then the software is not communicating to the controller.- Verify that another software package is using the port.- Verify that the unit is powered up.- Verify that the connected unit is not using the programming port for another function. If this is the case, then putting the controller into Stop or IDLE mode through the System Menu will open the port for Cscape communication.- If the Local indicates No Port- Verify that the configured port is an actual port on the PC. This can be done through the control panel of the PC.- Verify that the programming cable is plugged into the PC and the controller.- The following is trouble shooting for pass through CsCAN communication. If the Local Indicates a valid number (1 – 253), then verify the Target ID is correct. The state of the Target will be in parenthesis after the Target number. If this indicates anything other R, I, D, then verify the cabling, baud rate, and the setting of the Target node ID.
42 I/O Names Rules for I/O Naming: - Names must begin with a letter - Names can not contain any spaces- Names can not contain any special characters
43 Boolean ElementsNormally Open Contact – Passes power when element is active.Normally Closed Contact – Passes power when element is not active.Normally Open Coil – Active when rung it true.Normally Closed Coil – Active when the rung is not true.
44 Creating New Rung Place Contact in the A column. Notice the Screw Terminal in the left margin.
45 Creating New RungRight Click in the left margin to create a new rung of logic.
