An abundance of head variations for all applications
The DL-EP1 is an EtherNet/IP™ compatible adaptor which can read and write the data from the connected sensor amplifier from a PLC (programmable controller). It supports cyclic communication as well as UCMM and Class 3 (explicit message communication). Data can be exchanged without a ladder program. The sensor amplifier settings and status can be read and written at random timing, and commands can be issued to the sensor amplifier.
The DL-DN1 operates as a slave unit of DeviceNet™ communication. Using DeviceNet™ communications, the sensor amplifiers and other units connected to the DL-DN1 can transmit their ON/ OFF control signals and measured values as communication data to PLC or other equipment.
The DL-DN1 supports I/O communication (polling) and explicit messaging. I/O polling enables data communication without the need of a ladder program. Explicit messaging allows for reading/writing sensor amplifier parameters and issuing commands to the sensor amplifiers.
Use this unit when outputting digital data to an external device
with RS-232C signals. In addition the unit can be used to
externally program the amplifiers.
*1. D-sub 9 pin connector cable (OP-81283) can be used for connection.
Use this unit when retrieving numerical data from the IL Series to an external device as digital data. A single communication unit can retrieve data from up to 8 IL Series display units via BCD.
The ◎ mark indicates that wire reduction and the creation of a Communication Program is not necessary.
