Chapter 1. Introduction

The i-8430,i-8830,i-8KE4andi-8KE8are Ethernet I/O units using DCON Protocol Firmware E10M_nnn.exe (*1). ICPDAS provides various I/O modules(*2) ,using such as analog input/output and digital input/output and counter modules which can be used in remote data acquisition and control application for environment monitoring, power management, factory automation, etc . via Ethernet communication.

(*1): For detail of E10M_nnn.exe, please refer to

CD:\Napdos\DCON\8KE4_8KE8\Firmware\Version_Annn.txt ftp://ftp.icpdas.com/pub/cd/8000cd/napdos/dcon/8ke4_8ke8/firmware/

1.1 Features

Ethernet –basedData Acquisition I/O unit

The i-8430,i-8830,i-8KE4andi-8KE8are Ethernet I/O unit. This feature allows Ethernet applications to access and control the remote I/O in industrial filed network. And E10M_nnn.exe or 8KE10.exe is the DCON firmware for thei-8430,i-8830,i-8KE4andi-8KE8.Using this firmware, applications can be easily and directly developed using a TCP program, or via VxComm technology.

ASCII-basedprotocol (DCON Protocol)

The i-8430,i-8830,i-8KE4andi-8KE8Ethernet I/O units use the DCON protocol, which is a request/reply communication protocol used withI-7000/8000/87Kseries I/O modules. And is used to access the data from the module using a simple ASCII format. For example, sending the command “$01M” will query the controller name. The responding module will reply with a message similar to “!018KE4(cr)” or “!018430(cr)”

For more details regarding the DCON Protocol, please refer to Appendix B: DCON protocol.

For DCON Protocol about 8000 MCU and 8000 series I/O modules. Please refer to : CD:\Napdos\DCON\IO_Module\hw_dcon_on_8KUnit ftp://ftp.icpdas.com/pub/cd/8000cd/napdos/dcon/io_module/hw_dcon_on_8kunit/

Various SDK provided (free)

In order to access the I/O modules that are connected to 8430/8830/8KE4/8KE8. Various SDKs are provided, such as: (see Note1, Note2, Note3)

zDLL driver

zActiveX component

zLabView bundled driver

zIndusoft bundled driver

zLinux driver

zOPC server

Note1: All these SDKs include the DCON Command and can be easily and quickly integrated into the user's system. Please refer to Chapter 3 for more detail information.

Note2: When applied to an Ethernet interface, users should first install VxComm utility when using these SDKs

Note3: DLL, ActiveX, LabView, IndoSoft, OPC server and VxComm utility only support the windows platform. (Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP)

I/O configurable via the Ethernet

The DCON Utility is used to configure I-7000,I-8000andI-87Kseries I/O modules. It originally communicated with the I/O modules via the COM port. For I/O modules on thei-8430,i-8830,i-8KE4andi-8KE8,using the VxComm technique to create a virtual COM port can let DCON Utility access the I/O modules via the Ethernet. For more details, please refer to Chapter 3.

Simultaneous access by a maximum of 6 host PCs

Although a maximum of 6 host PCs are allowed simultaneous access, it is recommended that fewer host PCs are used in order to give better performance and stability.

Internet

Updateable firmware (via the RS-232port)

Firmware

Note: the 8430/8830/8KE4/8KE8’s COM1 port can be used to download firmware, update the MiniOS image file, and to configure the IP address.

When should the firmware be updated ?

Î Firmware should be updated when ICPDAS announces

Dual Bus design to supports i-8Kandi-87Kseries I/O modules

The 8430/8830/8KE4/8KE8 has two types of bus on its back plane. The first is a serial bus (RS-485interface) for 87K I/O modules and the second is a parallel bus for 8K I/O modules. The DCON firmware can support both 8K and 87K series I/O modules. These two series I/O modules can both be connected into the sameI-8000MCU, and can use the same DCON command when they are both attached toI-8000MCU. The modules for DI, DO, DIO, AI, AO and Counter/Frequency purpose are supported. Other modules, such asmulti-serialport (8112, 8144, 8142, 8144), MMC (8073), motion (8090, 8091), are not supported. For more details, please refer to Appendix D:i-8Kandi-87Kseries I/O modules.

For more about I/O module’s information, please refer to CD:\ Napdos\DCON\IO_Module\hw_dcon_on_8KUnit

ftp://ftp.icpdas.com/pub/cd/8000cd/napdos/dcon/io_module/hw_dcon_on_8kunit/

More flexible I/O combination and Compact fasten quick to install

The 8430/8830/8KE4/8KE8 Ethernet I/O units contain either a 4-slotor8-slotbus to allow various i/o modules to be connected, removing the need for complex wiring between i/o modules. Furthermore, various I/O modules can be inserted into the slots at the same time, such as digital input/output, analog input/output and counter modules, and each I/O module allows various numbers of channels. For example, withi-8040ori-8041,the 8830/8KE8 provides max 256 digital input or digital output channels.The module can simply be plugged into the slot and secured to the plastic base using a pair of locking buttons. The assembly can then be mounted on the control box using DIN rail clips.

Built-inWatchdog

The built-inwatchdog circuit will reset the CPU module if a failure occurs in either the hardware or software. If the application program does not refresh the watchdog timer within 0.8 sec, the watchdog circuit will initiate a reset of the CPU.

Input Protection circuitry

The protection circuitry on both the network and power supply protects the system from external signals such as main spikes and ambient electrical noise. In addition, the central processing module is isolated from external signals in three ways. This is achieved through I/O isolation of 3KV, power isolation to 3KV and network isolation to 2KV

High performance integrated power supply

The built-inisolated 20W power supply is rated to perform linearly up to full loading.

Ventilated housing design to work between -25~+75

The 8430/8830/8KE4/8KE8 is housed in a plastic base box with a column-likeventilator, that can help to cool the work environment inside the box and allow the 8430/8830/8KE4/8KE8 to operator between-25and +75 .
