Frequently Asked Questions

A communication module, part number VW3-A16303, was available for the ATV16 product line. The device plugged into the keypad port and provided the functionality of a display and a PCMCIA slot (resting on the right side of the drive). A PCMCIA Network card was then plugged it into the carrier and the card was wired to the network. Protocols supported included UNITEL, Modbus and JBus (via part number VW3A66301) or FIPIO (via TSX FPV16 V6M or TSX FPPP 01). The communication carrier was never commercialized in the United States
In Concept 2.11, to start counting without using the input corresponding to the channel being used, which is generally used as a validation input, simply do not check the line \"Use counting enable input x\" and do not declare anything next to the \"Input A\" line. The control panel of the 140EHC10500 high speed counter card can be accessed from the \"Local Quantum I/O Station\" screen in which the \"Parameters\" button is located. This button is operational when the line is highlighted.
140CPU65160 can IO scan up to 128 devices/registers maximum. The total number of input and output words which can be scanned during one cycle is 4000 each. Note: The maximum number of devices which can be used for IO scanning differs according to the type of module. Below table shows the IO scan limitation for Modicon Quantum range CPUs.
Following are the difference between XBTZ925 cable and XBTZG925 cable: 1. XBTZ925A and XBTZ925B, in connection with TSX CUSB45 converter, is used for programming HMI terminals: XBT N/R. 2. XBTZG925 is programming cable for XBT GT11xx series HMI terminals only (Serial Tool port).
It is not possible to change a single phase source into a three phase source with a static device, such as a transformer. An active device is required, examples of which are phase converters or some special variable frequency drives.
TSXSCPCM4030 cable is required from TSXSCP114 PCMCIA card to the Modbus branching device TSXSCA50 for connecting other RS485 device on the Modbus Network. In case TSXSCA50 Modbus branching device is not used, you can connect this cable directly to Modbus RS 485 device. For this you have to connect Green/White (Green wire with White Strips) and White/Green (White wire with Green strips) wires to the Tx (Transmit) and Rx (Receive) pins respectively of the RS 485 Port of the Modbus device. Refer attachment for the pin out details of this cable for different connections.
There are three different PL7 software packages that can be used for programming of the Modicon Micro Range of PLCs. 1. TLXCDPL7PP45M.....PL7 PRO Software package. 2. TLXCDPL7MP45M.....PL7 Micro Software package. 3. TLXCDPL7JP45M.....PL7 JR Software package. The programming cable must be ordered separately. There are two options for the cable: 1. For Serial: a. TSXPCX1031.....Multi-Function Serial Communication Cable. 2. For USB: a. TSXCUSB485.....USB to RS485 Serial Converter. b. TSXCRJMD25.....9 pin Serial to 8 pin mini DIN cable.
The programming cable reference that can be used for USB communication between Quantum PLC and PC is UNYXCAUSB232.
In case no memory extension card is used with PLC, then the program data and constants are stored in the internal RAM memory of the processor module only. However, when the memory extension card is used with PLC, then data is stored in the internal RAM memory of processor module, whereas programs and constants are stored in the memory extension card.
The part no. of the Schneider USB to RS232 Converter is TSXCUSB232 Refer the attachment for the TSXUSB232 documentation. Use the standard Schneider UniTelway / Modbus drivers provided with software (Unity, PL7-Pro,) or by CD (TLX CDDRV20M).
System word %SW108 contains the number of forced bits. This information is also available in the processor adjustment window. Bits are forced from an animation table. System word %SW109 contains the number of forced analog channels. A channel is written to a forced value during adjustment by right-clicking on the channels then on \"Properties\". There is however no automatic search method.
Expect 1.25 A max. in transient state, and 0.8 A at maximum continuous current, on 24 VDC. These characteristics apply to all 24 VDC models in the Modicon Micro range. Example: 110CPU61200 or 110CPU31103.
The cable references for PC and XBTN200 connection with TSX3708056DR1 are as follows: 1 Cable between TSX3708056DR1 & HMI XBTN200 is ‘XBTZ9780’ 2 Cable between TSX3708056DR1 & PC is ‘TSXPCX1031’.
The procedure for setting the time and date in Modicon PL7 Premium CPU is as follows: 1. Open the PL7 Pro project. 2. Make a configuration by selecting PL7 Pro Premium PLC-TSXP572623. Verify this configuration. 3. Go online with PLC. Open the Debug screen of Premium PLC. Enter the date and time as per requirement. 4. Click on OK then update tab. It will set the date & time of PLC\'s real time clock as per your requirement.
1. There is a Battery fault indication available for the TSXBATM02 battery, indicating that replacement is required. 2. TSXBATM03 has to be changed every 1.5 years because there is no battery failure indication for TSXBATM03.

For cabling in negative logic, use a 24 V, 32-input card, part number 140DDI35310.
The 140ESI06210 card can be installed on a local, decentralised or remote Quantum sub-base. However the card\'s firmware can only be downloaded to a local sub-base. It may therefore be sensible to leave a slot on the local sub-base empty to update any card that is installed on a decentralised or remote sub-base.
