EH-RMP2 : Not built-in (Please use a connector which has a termination switch.) EH-RMP2 expands the input and output size to use in PROFIBUS network in comparison with EH-RMP. For this reason, inspite of standard mode / compatible mode, the input data of the PROFIBUS network may be rarely affected under noise environment.
EH-RMP2 Action Configuration tool Sycon SYCON.net Configurations file is not compatible between EH-RMP and EH-RMP2. Please reconfigure with use of SYCON.net. When reconfiguration, please set 2 byte boundaries in Module Alignment. Refer to section 4.4 for details. Configuration cable D-sub 9 pin Type-B USB cable Please prepare the type-B USB cable.

It takes approximately 10 seconds until EH-RMP2 starts I/O communication with the slave devices after the initialization since EH-RMP2 can deal with large size input / output data. Therefore, please not use input / output data of EH-RMP2 until the bits of all using slave state are 1 in the LINK information flag area.
