Chapter 9 Maintenance, check, error The below ladder program can monitor the status of ERR and I.ERR LEDs, and turn off LED automatically by the light of LED. This sample program is in case the “open error” happens on ASR connection 1, which is specified as positive station.
Chapter 9 Maintenance, check, error 9.3.3 Confirm error by status register (SR) EH-ETH has internally status register(SR) which stores communication status for each ASR connection. You can monitor this SR and program the retry circuit when the communication error occurs. See the “chapter 8 Register”...
Chapter 9 Maintenance, check, error Special Internal Outputs in the CPU module The status information on an EH-ETH module is stored in the special internal outputs area of CPU module shown in Table 9.4.1. Table9.4.1 Status information on an EH-ETH module I/O No.
Chapter 10 Troubleshooting Chapter 10 Troubleshooting This chapter explains the trouble shooting in case a system using EH-ETH. 10.1 Troubleshooting follow (1) Start of PLC Start of PLC system setup EH-ETH can be mounted in slot 0 to 2. EH-ETH is mounted Reexamine the mounted slot in slot 0 to 2 position.
Chapter 10 Troubleshooting (2) Various kinds setting Various kinds setting start Some parameters can be changed DIP SW bit 1 is ON, only with the dip switch Bit 2 is OFF. configuration shown as left. This DIP SW configuration is not allowed to use.
Chapter 10 Troubleshooting For reference In order to check the network connection, the "ping" command is useful. You can simply type “ping” and IP address in DOS prompt. If the network is on line, the requested station will reply as below. In this sample, the DIP Switch configuration is Bit 1=ON, Bit 8=ON, the other=OFF, which means temporal IP address is 192.168.0.1.
Chapter 10 Troubleshooting Trouble shoot When setup page is not displayed, please confirm "proxy setting" of your Web browser. [How to confirm the setting of proxy] <Internet Explorer5.0> (1). Select [Tools] [Internet Options…] (2) Select [Connections] tag and click [LAN settings] button. (3).

Turn off and on the power of whole network and all connected devices. If you still have the same problem, contact your local Hitachi supplier. *1: Depending on the timeout setting, it takes several minutes to detect an error.
Turn off and on the power of whole network and all connected devices. If you still have the same problem, contact your local Hitachi supplier. Importance [Retry action of Open request for active port] When an other station to a response cannot be found to the open request that EH-ETH sends, EH-ETH sends the TCP packet which contains the "SYN"...
Chapter 10 Troubleshooting 10.2 Diagnostic function This function is to check the communication circuit of EH-ETH module. Please set the dip switch as below and initialize the EH-ETH. The self-diagnosis function will start. EH-ETH is initialized only when power on or pressing reset button.
Chapter 10 Troubleshooting (2) External loop back test [Outline] Communication circuit test using actual signal via loop back connector. [Dip switch setting] Only Bit7 ON [Test procedure] (a) Prepare a special loop back connector as below. (b) Set the dip switch as above and plug in the loop back connector to EH-ETH. (c) Turn on the power to PLC or press the reset button.
Chapter 10 Troubleshooting (3) Send/ receive test - In case of using 2 times of EH-ETH modules. [Outline] UDP message is communicated between the one EH-ETH for test and the other EH-ETH in normal operation. [UDP massage format] The UDP message format which EH-ETH sends network is below. ……..
Chapter 10 Troubleshooting Sample program Ladder program for send/receive test Please assign I/O configuration as slot-0 “COMM”, slot-2 “COMM” and others “Empty 16”. To set S parameter area R7E3 (00001) WR4003 = H2 The request of status register getting WR4004 = H22F To set the target area(unit0, slot2) ADRIO (WR4005, R700) To configure R700 as the control bit I/O No.
Chapter 10 Troubleshooting - When you use a set of PLC with EH-ETH and host computer. [Test content] The UDP message is returned between EH-ETH of test mode and application software which supports communication specification. [Communication specification] Communication protocol is UDP/IP. The application software return the massage which the EH-ETH of test mode sends to it.
Appendix Fundamenntals of TCP/IP Appendix Fundamentals of TCP/IP IP address In general, 32 bits logical address called IP address is used in TCP/IP and UDP/IP protocol. IP address is consisted by Network address and Host address. The boundary of Network address and Host address has three types upper 8bits, 16bits or 24bits.
Appendix Fundamenntals of TCP/IP IP(Internet Protocol) and routing table IP sends an IP packet having IP header and Data to the destination Host or the Router exists on the route way to the destination Host by using the Link layer standing for the Ethernet. The reliability is not so good, because there are no confirmation of response, retry of sending, detecting of error and connection on the IP level.
