SAFETY PRECAUTIONS (Read these precautions before using this product.) Before using this product, please read this manual and the relevant manuals carefully and pay full attention to safety to handle the product correctly. The precautions given in this manual are concerned with this product only. For the safety precautions of the programmable controller system, refer to the MELSEC iQ-R Module Configuration Manual.
[Design Precautions] WARNING ● Configure safety circuits external to the programmable controller to ensure that the entire system operates safely even when a fault occurs in the external power supply or the programmable controller. Failure to do so may result in an accident due to an incorrect output or malfunction. (1) Emergency stop circuits, protection circuits, and protective interlock circuits for conflicting operations (such as forward/reverse rotations or upper/lower limit positioning) must be configured external to the programmable controller.
[Design Precautions] WARNING ● Especially, when a remote programmable controller is controlled by an external device, immediate action cannot be taken if a problem occurs in the programmable controller due to a communication failure. To prevent this, configure an interlock circuit in the program, and determine corrective actions to be taken between the external device and CPU module in case of a communication failure.
[Installation Precautions] WARNING ● Shut off the external power supply (all phases) used in the system before mounting or removing the module. Failure to do so may result in electric shock or cause the module to fail or malfunction. [Installation Precautions] CAUTION ●...
[Wiring Precautions] WARNING ● Shut off the external power supply (all phases) used in the system before installation and wiring. Failure to do so may result in electric shock or cause the module to fail or malfunction. ● After installation and wiring, attach a blank cover module (RG60) to each empty slot and an included extension connector protective cover to the unused extension cable connector before powering on the system for operation.
[Wiring Precautions] CAUTION ● Prevent foreign matter such as dust or wire chips from entering the module. Such foreign matter can cause a fire, failure, or malfunction. ● A protective film is attached to the top of the module to prevent foreign matter, such as wire chips, from entering the module during wiring.
[Startup and Maintenance Precautions] CAUTION ● When connecting an external device with a CPU module or intelligent function module to modify data of a running programmable controller, configure an interlock circuit in the program to ensure that the entire system will always operate safely. For other forms of control (such as program modification, parameter change, forced output, or operating status change) of a running programmable controller, read the relevant manuals carefully and ensure that the operation is safe before proceeding.
[Operating Precautions] CAUTION ● When changing data and operating status, and modifying program of the running programmable controller from an external device such as a personal computer connected to an intelligent function module, read relevant manuals carefully and ensure the safety before operation. Incorrect change or modification may cause system malfunction, damage to the machines, or accidents.

Allows for setting start addresses of word data transmission. This function shortens the word transmission cycle time. function AnyWireASLINK version compatibility Inspects whether a slave module that does not support the word transmission is connected to the RJ51AW12AL or inspection function not.
PROCEDURES BEFORE OPERATION This chapter describes the procedures before operation. Configuring a system Configure an AnyWireASLINK system and set parameters which are required for start-up. • WIRING ( Page 28 WIRING) • Parameter setting( MELSEC iQ-R AnyWireASLINK Master Module User's Manual (Application)) •...
SYSTEM CONFIGURATION System Configuration of AnyWireASLINK An AnyWireASLINK system consists of the RJ51AW12AL, slave modules, and a terminating unit. The slave modules and a terminating unit are products manufactured by Anywire Corporation. (1) RJ51AW12AL (2) Slave module (ASLINKER) (3) Slave module (ASLINKAMP)
The power consumed in the internal control circuits of all the slave modules and the external load power connected to non- isolation slave modules are supplied collectively from the 24VDC external power supply connected to the RJ51AW12AL. ( Page 17 Performance Specifications) Scope of the power supply with transmission cables (DP and DN) The current consumption of the system must satisfy all the following conditions for the RJ51AW12AL.
= Current consumption of the non-isolation input slave module/I/O combined slave module + Current consumption of connected load (three-wire sensor) Number of points ■Iho(A): Current consumption of the non-isolation output slave module = Current consumption of the non-isolation output slave module + Current consumption of connected load Number of points RJ51AW12AL DP DN 24VL 24V 0V...

WIRING This chapter describes the wiring of the RJ51AW12AL. Terminal Block Type of the terminal block The following terminal block is used in the RJ51AW12AL. Name Model Contact Transmission cable terminal block FMC1,5/7-STF-3,81 PHOENIX CONTACT GmbH & Co. KG (www.phoenixcontact.com) Tightening torque Tighten terminal block screws within the following tightening torque range.
Wiring Method This section describes the wiring to the transmission cable terminal block of the RJ51AW12AL. Wiring to the transmission cable terminal block ■Connecting a cable Insert a cable with a bar solderless terminal into a wire insertion opening and fully push the cable. Then, pull the cable slightly to check that it is clamped securely.
• Signal names are not printed on the transmission cable terminal block. To avoid incorrect wiring, wire cables to the terminal block attached to the RJ51AW12AL. • Do not insert multiple bar solderless terminals into one wire insertion opening. Doing so may cause damage on the terminal block or cable, or malfunction.

Connecting Slave Module or Terminating Unit Connection type • The distance in an AnyWireASLINK stand-alone system is 200m, which is the total wiring length including the main line and branch line. (It varies depending on the wire diameter of the transmission cables (DP, DN) or the transmission cable supply current.) •...
■Terminating unit connection Connect at least one terminating unit for one AnyWireASLINK line. Connect it at the farthest end from the RJ51AW12AL. The maximum number of connectable modules differs depending on the terminating unit used. For details, refer to user's manuals for the terminating unit used.
Communication of RJ51AW12AL with Slave Module The input signals of the input ASLINKER, stored in 'Bit input information area' (Un\G0 to Un\G15) of the RJ51AW12AL, are batch-transferred to the device data of the CPU module. Moreover, the device data of the CPU module is batch-transferred to 'Bit output information area' (Un\G4096 to Un\G4111) of the RJ51AW12AL, and the output signals are transmitted to the output ASLINKER.
Click the [OK] button to add the module labels of the CPU module. Set the RJ51AW12AL as follows. [Navigation window] [Parameter] [Module Information] Right-click [Add New Module] 7 COMMUNICATION EXAMPLE 7.1 Communication of RJ51AW12AL with Slave Module...
