Procedures Before Operation
This section describes the procedures before operation.
Check the analog output module specifications
Check the specifications for the analog output module. (Page 176 Specifications)
Install the analog output module
Install the analog output module to the CPU module. For details, refer to the following.
MELSEC iQ-F FX5U User's Manual (Hardware)
MELSEC iQ-F FX5UC User's Manual (Hardware)
Perform wiring of external devices to the analog output module.
Adding a module
Add an analog output module to the module configuration by using GX Works3.
When adding a new analog output module, if selecting the module whose module model name has "(FX3)" at
the end, it can be used as FX3 allocation mode.
• FX5-4DA: Normal mode
• FX5-4DA(FX3): FX3 allocation mode
For details on the FX3 allocation mode function, refer to Page 237 FX3 allocation mode function
Set parameters of the analog output module by using GX Works3. (Page 244 Parameter Settings)
When setting the user range, perform the offset/gain setting.
Create a program.
This section describes the functions of an analog output module and the setting procedures for those functions.
For details on the buffer memory areas, refer to the following.
