How can LOGOSCREEN nt with LON modules be expanded by external analog and binary inputs?
LON to LOGOSCREEN nt
There are two possible variants,
- Polling the communication module
- Fast polling cycles
- Max. 16 external inputs possible.
- Bindings also have to be created in the iTOOL project.
- Polling the input modules
- Max. 24 external inputs possible.
- No additional bindings have to be created in the iTOOL project.
- Slow polling cycles
ITOOL_Project for polling the communication module
With iTOOL, a project is created with the Modbus gateway and the input modules.
In the example here, with 2 x 8-fold input modules.
Bindings must be created in the iTOOL project for polling the communication module.
Analog input module 1 is preferably connected to Real_In01 – Real_In08.
Clear sorting is obtained by placing 00 in front of the name for the bindings.
E.g. à in001 (shown in the project example).
The second module corresponds to Real_In09 – Real_In16.
Configuring Logoscreen nt
To poll the communication module and the input modules, it is important to know the Modbus slave address.
This is permanently assigned in the background when creating the iTOOL project.
A list of the requisite addresses is displayed in the print preview.
To see this, proceed as follows. In the Network menu, select Compile....
Confirm the note from iTOOL with OK and close the window with Close.
In the Project menu, select Print-Preview... and check Module list. Uncheck the other options and confirm with OK.
You will then see a list of the modules.
In the Address column, you will see the associated internal slave addresses (red frame) of the modules.
Activating the Modbus master configuration in the Setup program
The slave address found in Print Preview is now used as the instrument address for the Setup program entry in the Modbus master configuration. The Modbus address can be found in the system manual (sh70.4040d.pdf ).
The following Modbus address table applies for polling the communication module.
(sh70.4040d.pdf page 51 )
Number of Values is the input option for polling successive ModBus addresses; with the communication module, it makes sense to enter 16 values here.
The following table applies to polling the 8-fold modules.
(sh70.4040d.pdf page 61 )
The following table applies to polling the 4-fold modules.
(sh70.4040d.pdf page 45 )
Number of Values is the input option for polling successive ModBus addresses, in the example here, 8 values for the 4-fold module corresponds to 4 values.
Tabs 2 - 8 are then inactive.
