4.3 Replace MELSECNET containing a remote I/O station with MELSECNET/H

4.3 Replace MELSECNET containing a remote I/O station with MELSECNET/H
Solution and Benefit
• Although MELSECNET systems may be a combination of local and remote I/O stations, two
separate networks are necessary when upgrading to Q Series. However, if the existing system
contains only a few remote I/O stations, only one network is needed if remote I/O stations are
replaced with normal (local) stations without changing the cable layout or adding new wiring.
• Even when the remote I/O stations are replaced with the normal stations, it is not required to
modify the control (master) station's network related programs.
The following is an example of upgrading a MELSECNET(ΙΙ) system to MELSECNET/H by replacing both local
and remote I/O stations with normal stations.
● Instructions
(1) Replace the MELSECNET(ΙΙ) master station with the MELSECNET/H control station, and the
MELSECNET(ΙΙ) local and remote I/O stations with the MELSECNET/H normal stations to maintain a single
network configuration. (This is because the controller network and remote I/O network cannot reside on a
single network.)
(2) Add a simple transfer program between LX/LY (link side device) and X/Y (actual I/O device) for the normal
station replaced from the remote I/O station. With this program, the normal station receives LY sent from
the control station by X and transfers it to actual output address Y; the normal station transfers input X to LY
so that the control station can receive it as X.
• MELSECNET(ΙΙ): I/O signal transfer between master station and remote station
- Master station input (X) <- Remote station input (X)
- Master station output (Y) -> Remote station output (Y)
• MELSECNET/H: I/O signal transfer between control station and normal station
- Control station input (X) <- Normal station output (Y)
- Control station output (Y) -> Normal station input (X)
