Outline the steps necessary to setup the QCDxx-F (-FM) controllers for Ethernet IP.
All users of QCDxx-F (-FM) controllers integrating with an Ethernet IP Master PLC.
- From the Main Menu go to Settings-Fieldbus
-In the Type dropbox select Ethernet IP
-Enable Bus Control and Logs
-Select Input Assignment to assign the required behaviors to the Bits.
-Select the applicable Byte.
-Select the required Data for each Bit and select Apply.
-When all Bits are assigned select OK.
-Follow the same procedure to assign the Output Bytes.
-After the Input and Output Assignments are programmed select Save.
-From the Main Menu go to Settings->Ethernet Settings.
-Assign the appropriate network settings for Port 2 to communicate with the PLC and select Save.
--Note: Port 1 is used for accessing the controller web browser and should be on a different subnet than Port 2.
--Note: There is an option on the Fieldbus Setup screen to select the ICDM Profile. Enabling this will set the Input and Output Bits to the same mapping as the ICDM controllers.
See the attached link for the appropriate EDS file. The controller should be updated to version 6.7.0 or greater before using the Ethernet IP option.
See the attached spreadsheet showing the ICDM Bit Mapping.
The PLC and controller must be on similar timing. The INSIGHT controller expects data no faster than every 50 ms. Customer PLCs must have cycle rates no faster than 50 ms or communications issues could arise.
