"Use Run Idle for O2T" check-box in Ethernet/IP configuration

Recommended Posts

Hallo,
I'm doing Ethernet IP communication with Keyence Cameras (CVX-400) and SMC motor Drivers (JXC91 series).
Everything works very well, but it took me a long time for SMC drivers to be checked:

                     Use Run idle for O2T.

I would like to ask why and what it means. I did not find explanation in help.
Well thank you.

I've just encountered the Run Idle as well.  Looks like it is an optional 32-bit header from some google searches I have done.  I did find some additional details in the UniStream help file by searching for "idle":

Just managed to help a customer get the UniStream talking to an SMC EX600 module via Ethernet/IP.  The original post above was helpful, so thank you @Pista :-)

Hi  Simon.

I'm glad to have helped someone.
We do not have an EDS compilation (electronic data sheet) yet.

I give Global I / O tags for SMC drivers and Keyence Camera.
They can be imported into the project.

Hy Pista

I have a keyence camera system and a UniStream PLC. I must make connection between the CV-X150AP and the PLC, but I don't know how. Do you can help me? Should you send me a sample program? How works the EDS file?

Hi  SIMI
The EDS file compiler for EIPscanner does not exist in the unilogic programmer.
I've created global tags from EDS.
You must import global Tags into the program.  File is higher  in this topic - TagsforJXC91.xls
Here are tags for Keyence CVX-400. these are used in Ethernet / IP Scanner settings.
If you want to control Cameras using the implicit commands, watch the video.

Lots of fun :)

Thank you for your help. :D I have one question yet. Do you read the bits, information direct, or must use  something in ladder?

The Ethernet IP scanner provides Input / Output data exchange between the keyence camera and the unistream PLC.
The exchange of data takes place at a rate of 16ms.
You must read and write registers using a ladder.
But you need to know the Keyence system quite accurately.
An example of how to do this is shown below.
