Hello, I'm trying to understand the behavior of the I/O bus of a USP-156-B10. I connected all my modules to the PLC with Local Expansion Kits (UAG-XKP), with a RJ-45 cable, and wanted to know what was the communication protocol (or fieldbus) inside this cable. Is it Ethernet ? Thanks in advance, V. Mamet
Hello everyone, I have a project where I'm supposed to make a machine, using the V570 (and program it with Visilogic 9.8.79 beta). This machine is required to detect the reference numbers of smth else through its RS232 port, run some tests and then print a label that the thing it tested is in a good shape ( that's just a global view about what I'm supposed to do ). Given that I only have the V570, I know that I/O ports must be added, though I'm clueless to what exactly ask for. I did some researches, and found that there are "snap-in" and "I/O expansion modules" that can be added, still I don't get the difference between them. So my questions are : - what are the Snap-In and I/O Expansion Module exactly? when and where do we use each of them? - How do I chose what should I add to my V570 ? - What hardware (other than the V570) should I exactly have for this project ? thank you in advance
Hi everyone I'm fairly new at unitronics and I'm doing a project that calls for the use of two EX-RC1 connected by modbus. I've been going through the webinars ( and ) and I'm still in the dark as to how I set upthe EX-RC's for my I/O expansions. In my first RC I have the following I/O's : #0: D16A3-RO16 #1:AO6X 2#: AO6X #3: AO6X #4:AI8 #5AI8 In the second RC I have four IO-PT400 modules I've tried following the second youtube clip, using the EX-RC1 example file where I've added my I/O's, but I get an error when I try to export the Hardware config: 'Export failed (555) You must define a minimum of one I/O, including its operand link, per module before you can export the configuration' Can somebody point me in the right direction here? Thanks
JZ- EX 8Di -8Do Dear UNITRONICS users. This is my another device, which i developed, and it's used several times in my projects. This expansion module looks like EX90-DI8-RO8 expansion module from Unitronics. Our module also have 8 digital inputs which can be sink or source configurated, and 8 digital (transistor) outputs which can be also sink, source or even for AC voltage configurated with max. 0,5A current per output. This module can be connected to any OPLC from Unitronic series. The module communicating with PLC via RS485 port. In this case JAZZ series needs a RS232/RS485 Add-on port (JZ-RS24 ) Also PLC must have a short communicating software which is in attachment. It's wery short, occupies only 7 nets. The second choice of this module is standalone mini PLC, because is based on Atmel AMEGA168 AVR with a 16k of programming space. It can be updated up to 128k programming space on request. If you have a skills of AVR programming, there is no problem to write your own software (AVR studio, Arduino, Bascom ) and upload him thru ISP port. The modules can be networked via RS485. Also is possible connect some device like HDD44780 based LCD diplay to ISP port! The power supply for module is 10V to 30VDC or AC, and power consumption is obout 3W. Specification: Board size (WxHxD): 90x77x60 mm - DIN32 module base Digital inputs: 8 inputs in 1 group , pnp or npn (10- 30VDC,AC on request) Digital outputs: 8 digital outputs in 1 group , pnp or npn , max. 0,5A per output – fused (10 -30VDC/ AC) Response time (inputs/outputs): approximately 30ms Communication: RS485, 9600,8,1,N Power supply: 10 – 30VDC/AC , 3W For further information or orders, please write to : firstname.lastname@example.org The kit contains: Expansion module with preloaded software, module base and connectors User manual Software for communication and test for JAZZ : Komunikacija JAZZ Rev. 2..1_2018.U90 Wiring procedure: JAZZ expansion wiring - source.xps Expansion board and JAZZ uploaded with test program
