1 QuickPanel Control DeviceNet Master Communications Card (IC754DVNM01) Quick Start Guide Thursday September 20, 2007
2 Introduction: This document is a brief introduction to the configuration of the QuickPanel View (QPV) and QP Control s (QPC) DeviceNet Master Card, IC754DVNM01, using Prophecy Machine Edition Software. Only a basic configuration example will be provided and the audience that is intended for this document will be GE Fanuc Technical Support Agents who have previous exposure to Machine Edition Software as well as the QPV/QPC. The GE Fanuc Hardware platform will also be utilized to interface to both the Master and Slave cards and a certain level of competence with the will also be required. This document will not cover the installation of the hardware as this is covered in the respective manuals which can be found on the GE Fanuc website. Information regarding DeviceNet can be found at References: GFK-2270C QPV/QPC DeviceNet Communication cards Users Manual GFK- 2916A DeviceNet Modules for Series User s Manual
3 For this configuration a 6 QPC TFT is being used with the IC754DVNM01. The setup will have the QPC Master controlling a IC693DNS201 Slave. Two I/O cards will be used in the rack to simulate the data being passed to and from the QPC to the PLC. The configuration for the will also be included in this example. 1. Start by creating a new empty project 2. For this configuration we are going to add two Targets, the QP Control and the
4 ***This portion only pertains to this example, as a GE Fanuc PLC is being used. This will illustrate that the data lengths that are setup in the Slave (90-30) have to match the lengths that have been configured in the Master (QPC) only the configuration for the IC693DNS201 will be covered in detail*** 3. The PLC rack for this example will be as follows: Slot 0 IC693PWR321 (Power Supply) Slot 1 IC693CPU364 (CPU) Slot 2 IC693DNS201 (DeviceNet Slave Module) Slot 3 IC693MDL940 (discrete Output Module) Slot 4 IC693ACC300 (16 point input simulator) 4. There are 2 portions to the IC693DNS201 configuration, the network configuration and the module configuration. We will configure the Slave s Network configuration first. To open the editor, right click the module in the Hardware Configuration and select Network Settings
5 5. The module s network configuration is now seen. For this example all that will be changed on the General tab is the MAC ID. We will modify this to a value of 1. For a definition of the network parameters, refer to GFK- 2916A.
6 6. Now a Connection is to be setup. This is the data connection between the Slave Module and the QP Master. 7. A Polled Connection is enabled by clicking the radio button Please refer to GFK- 2916A for information regarding the different connection types.
7 8. The data lengths must now be configured. The lengths are the amount of data that Slave will be sending to and receiving from the Master. ***The lengths that are setup in the Slave have to match the lengths defined in the Master for the devices to communicate*** The lengths will be setup as follows: Input Resource Size = 2 Bytes Output Resource size = 2 Bytes ****The 2 bytes in and 2 bytes out are just arbitrary for this example. These values have been chosen for this example to simulate the 16 boolean outputs from the IC693MDL940 and the IC693ACC301 Simulator. Please confer the documentation for the maximum allowable data lengths**** Click on OK.
8 9. Now the Module configuration needs to be done. To open the Configuration, once again right click the module and select Configure. The Module configuration is seen The default values are left for this example. 10. The Data areas now have to be enabled.
9 11. Click on the Input Data Area tab. Double click the area 1 type and select Connection 1 Outputs (to this PLC) and click ok. Set the lengths to 16 (2 bytes as Discrete inputs are being used) and then set the reference address to %I This address has been chosen due to the fact that the input simulator has been configured for this range and we will be using these points for simulation later in this document. 12. Click on the Output Data Area tab. Double click the area 1 type and select Connection 1 Inputs (from this PLC) Set the length to 16 (2 bytes as Discrete outputs are being used) and then set the reference address to %Q This address has been chosen due to the fact that the IC693MDL940 has been configured for this range and we will be using these points for simulation later in this document.
10 ***Two rungs of logic are required in the PLC for the data simulation as follows*** 13. Go Online with the PLC. Download to the PLC and put it into Run Mode. 14. Now the QPC has to be configured. Right click the QPC Target and select Add Component and add the HMI component. Do the same for the Logic Component. 15. Right click the Control I/O Driver heading in the navigator and select New Driver and select DeviceNet I/O
11 16. Double click the driver and the Control I/O Configuration is seen 17. Left click on Card 1 and the card s properties are seen in the inspector 18. The Baud rate setting needs to be modified to 500 to match the slave s configuration. 19. Right click Card 1 and select Add Slave
12 20. From the list add the GE Fanuc Automation DeviceNet Slave (Major: 1 Minor: 16) and click OK. 21. Select the Connection 1 table and enable the Polled connection with 2 bytes in and 2 bytes out as was done in the Slave and click OK. 22. The Control I/O Terminals are created.
13 23. Variables must now be created for the Terminals. 24. For this example, 2 boolean arrays are created, one for the inputs and one for the outputs. The data source for these variables is going to be Control. The types will be input for the input terminals and output for the output terminals.
14 25. Drag the individual variables on the I/O terminals 26. Open Panel 1 from the navigator and drag the variables out to create pilots lights to test the communications
15 27. Download to the Panel. 28. Toggle the switches for the input simulator and notice that the top rows of pilot lights reflect the states of the switches. Press the pilot light on the bottom two rows and notice that the outputs on the IC693MDL940 that correspond with pilot lights are turning on.
