It is possible to connect up the EH-LNK together with upper level H series CPU link modules (LINK-H, LINK-SH, LINK-02H, etc.) As indicated in figure 4.1, it is possible to use both upper level H series CPU link modules and CPU modules in a link system loop.
  • Page 14: Cpu Link Functions

    Chapter 4. Basic CPU Link Operations CPU link functions A transmission area and a receiving area are assigned to the CPU's link area, and all link operations are performed via these areas. The link areas can be assigned arbitrarily in units of 16 points (1 word) for each CPU.
  • Page 15 Chapter 4. Basic CPU Link Operations 2) Link area identification When two CPU link modules have been installed, the first and second link areas are identified in accordance with their installation position. The slots are counted in 0, 1, 2 sequence from the right-hand side of the CPU, and the CPU link module with the smallest number is assigned as the first unit, with the other unit assigned as the second CPU link module.

Basic CPU Link Operations 3) Precautions related to assignment duplication Link areas assigned in local stations will become the areas for transmitting to other stations, and the remaining area will become the area for receiving from other stations, in accordance with link area assignment.

    Link data refresh time The amount of time required for the EH-150 link module to update link data is calculated in the following manner. However, this is only a rough estimate and does not necessarily apply when transmission errors and other errors are triggered.
  • Page 18: Method Of Confirming Link Data Validation

    Chapter 4. Basic CPU Link Operations Method of confirming link data validation 4.5.1 Link Error Flag Area When reading area data assigned to other stations, it is necessary to confirm that each station's link module is operating normally and that the CPU is running correctly at the very least. The method for doing this is by monitoring the link operation station flags (WRF05E to WRF08E and WRF145 to WFR148) and the CPU status flags (WRF0E9 to WRF0F8 and WRF149 to WFR158) and confirming all are set at ON (normal operations) before reading the assigned area data.

    Chapter 5. Installation and start-up 5.1.6 Coaxial cable shielding process Figure 5.5 shows the shielding line of a shielded coaxial cable when two EH-LNK units are installed on the basic base (EH-BS3.) The shielding line is only earthed on the RXD (receiving) side as a basic principle. However, this depends on the noise environment prevalent with the user, so the cable on the TXD (transmission) side may also be used without cutting off the shielding line.

    Chapter 5. Installation and start-up 5.1.7 Precautions when wiring coaxial cables Observe the following precautions when wiring coaxial cables for transmission purposes between CPU link modules to avoid the effects of noise and to increase reliability. (1) Use a different route to power lines and signal cables when wiring coaxial cables for transmitting between CPU link modules.
  • Page 25: Start-Up

    Chapter 5. Installation and start-up Start-up The procedure for starting up a link system is explained below. 1. Although there are no restrictions on the order in which the power supply to each station must be switched on when starting up a link system, link operations will not commence until the power has been switched on to station No.0 (the master station.) Create the program used for controlling and computing the link data after the master station's participation flag has been set at ON.
