Connecting to PERIPHERAL I/F (Built-in Ethernet port Motion Controller
Motion controller CPU
The destination connected with the twisted pair cable varies with the configuration of the applicable Ethernet network system.
Connect to the Ethernet module, hub, transceiver or other system equipment corresponding to the applicable Ethernet network
Use cables, connectors, and hubs that meet the IEEE802.3 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX standard.
When connecting GT16 of the function version A to an equipment that meets the 10BASE (-T/2/5) standard, use the switching
hub and operate in a 10Mbps/100Mbps mixed environment.
For how to check the function version, refer to the following.
When using the PERIPHERAL I/F, set as shown below.
• Use the GT Designer3 Version1.12N or later.
• Select [QnUDE(H)] for [Controller Type] in [Ethernet] of GT Designer3.
A length between a hub and a node.
The maximum distance differs depending on the Ethernet device to be used.
The following shows the number of the connectable nodes when a repeater hub is used.
• 10BASE-T: Max. 4 nodes for a cascade connection (500m)
• 100BASE-TX: Max. 2 nodes for a cascade connection (205m)
When switching hubs are used, the cascade connection between the switching hubs has no logical limit for the number of
For the limit, contact the switching hub manufacturer.
GT14 models compatible with Ethernet connection are only GT1455-QTBDE, GT1450-QMBDE and GT1450-QLBDE.
