Introduction

INTRODUCTION

The DN-3000is an intelligent,multiple-functionDeviceNet Data Transfer Unit designed for use within the harsh industrial environment.

Using the DN-3000Configuration Editor Software program, theDN-3000can be programmed to run either of the two (2) following application types:

1)DEVICENET TO PLCS OR DEVICES Allows a DeviceNet Host to read or write data registers in one or more PLCs or Devices that use the same protocol. One of theDN-3000’sthree ports can be used as apass-throughport in which all messages received are simply passed through to one of the connected PLCs/Devices (if supported for that PLC/Device protocol), allowing PLC programming software, a third party’s intelligent (MMI)Man-MachineInterface terminal or a SCADA software program to be “connected” to the same port on the PLCs/Devices used by theDN-3000.

2)DEVICENET TO MOTOR DRIVES Allows a DeviceNet Host to control and/or monitor parameters in up to 32 Motor Drives.

This manual is presented in two sections. Each section deals with the configuration requirements for each of the above applications: DeviceNet to PLCs and DeviceNet to Motor Drives.

Please note that the application type is selected when a new project is created using the DN-3000configuration software and may not be changed after the project is created.

Software Installation

GENERALINFORMATION

The Panel-TecDN3000 Configuration Editor Software Programis designed to operate on an IBM or compatible computer running MS-DOS 3.3 or higher.

While the Configuration Editor Software Program will run under “WINDOWS 3.1” in most configurations, it is not recommended. As of this date, no problems have been reported running the software under“WINDOWS 95”.

The configuration editor software will default during start-upto using“COMM 1” unless changed using theOPTIONS menu. This may conflict with a mouse driver program and prevent up/down loading configuration information to theDN-3000interface unit.

INSTALLATION

Place the supplied program disk into drive “A” (orB).

At the MS-DOSprompt,C:> type inA: (orB:) and then press the“ENTER” key.

When the “A” (orB) prompt appears,A:> type in“INSTALL” and press the“ENTER” key.

The following message will appear;

DN3000 Configuration Editor Installation Program

Enter the drive where the editor is to be installed ==>

Enter “C” (or any other hard drive you care to use), then press the“ENTER” key.

A new message will appear:

Enter the sub-directoryon drive C to install the editor into ==>

At the nextMS-DOSprompt;C:\DN3000>, type in“DN3000” and press theENTER key to start the Configuration Editor Software Program.

Upon starting of the configuration software program, the first screen to appear will be the “Support Information Page”, shown below.

After pressing the computer’s ENTER key, the support information page will disappear. Use the computer’sLEFT/RIGHT arrow keys and move the highlighted bar (very top of the screen) between the four (4) main system selection headers. To select any one of these main selection headers, place the highlight bar around that desired heading and then press the computer’sENTER key. Below is a brief description of the main project header and each internal subheading;NOTE: These brief descriptions listed are as the system starts without any projects opened or new projects created.

Selecting PROJECT opens a menu with the following options:

OPEN allows you to open any saved project file.NEW allows you to create a new project file.

DOS SHELL allows you to exit toMS-DOSwithout closing theDN-3000Configuration Editor Program and return to the Configuration Editor Program by typing in EXIT and then pressing the

ENTER key.

QUIT allows you to exit the Configuration Editor Program.

Creating Project Files

When the system returns to the “PROJECT’ menu, notice the additionalsub-headingsthat were added to the“PROJECT” menu and are now available for you to use. A brief description of each of these newsub-headingsare listed below:

Additional PROJECT

Menu Sub-Headings

CLOSE allows you to close a project file. More than one project file can be open at any time.

VIEW allows you to view; the project file name, project file type, and the current selections for each of theDN-3000’sserial ports.

SAVE allows you to save the current project file.

SAVE AS allows to save the current open project file under a different file name.

SWITCH TO allows you to switch between the opened project files. (Multiple files can be open.)PRINT allows you to print the project file’s configuration information.

GENERATE EDS FILE allows you to generate an EDS file for the current Project. The EDS file is used to tell a DeviceNet configuration tool information about theDN-3000and I/O sizes. If you are using a DeviceNet configuration tool to set up your DeviceNet network, you should generate a new EDS file for each project.

Use the RIGHT arrow key to move the highlight bar from the top“PROJECT” header to the top“EDIT” header to proceed with editing the configuration information stored in the project file.

DeviceNet to PLCs or Devices

DEVICENET TOPLCS ORDEVICES

The ”DeviceNet to Motor Drives” application allows a DeviceNet Host device to access data registers in up to 32 serial PLCs or Devices via Explicit Messages and/or I/O Data.

Explicit Messages allows the DeviceNet Host to issue requests to the DN-3000to read or write specific PLC/Device data registers. TheDN-3000converts those requests into serial communications requests in the selected serial PLC’s or Device’s protocol.

I/O Data allows the DN-3000to exchange a fixed set of PLC/Device data registers between a DeviceNet Host and serial PLCs or Devices. TheDN-3000writes Output Data received from the DeviceNet Host to fixed PLC/Device data registers (seeOutput Data Table in this section) in the connected serial PLCs or Devices. Input Data is read from fixed PLC/Device data registers in the connected serial PLCs or Devices and sent to the DeviceNet Host (seeInput Data Table in this section).

Important Note: TheDN-3000can be used to access onlydata registers in the selected PLCs or Devices. See theApplication Notes for the selected PLC/Device for more information.

DEVICEPROFILE

The DN-3000is based on the“PLC/Device Gateway” Device Profile, avendor-specificextension of the“Communications Adapter” Device Profile (described in the “ODVA DeviceNet Specifications”). This Device Profile introduces two newvendor-specificObjects: the“PLC/Device Interface Object” and the“PLC/Device Command Object”. Documentation on this profile and these objects are available fromPanel-Tec,Inc.

The DN-3000 is a Group 2 Only Serverutilizing the Predifined Master/Slave Connection Set(as described in the (ODVA DeviceNet Specifications”). It supports both Explicit Messagingand Polled,Change-of-State(COS) and Cyclic I/Oconnections to a DeviceNet Host. It does not support Bit-StrobedI/Oconnections.

To access register data via Explicit Messaging, the DeviceNet Host must issue an explicitGet_Member orSet_Member request to the desired“PLC/Device Interface Object” Instance (based on PLC/Device Address) of theDN-3000.

If Polled, COS and/or Cyclic I/O connections are to be used, you must first set up the I/O configuration of theDN-3000with theDN3000 Configuration Editor software. SeeI/O Data Configuration in this section.

NOTE:

1)Each DN-3000can support up to 32 PLCs/Devices (if they are network addressable internally).

2)The DeviceNet Host can address a maximum of 63 DN-3000units.

3)Multiple Brands of PLCs or Devices may be addressed by the DeviceNet Host by using multiple DN-3000s,but only one PLC/Device Protocol may be used on a singleDN-3000unit.

4)If multiple DN-3000sare to be used, eachDN-3000must be configured with a unique node address (MAC ID) on the DeviceNet network.

MAC ID of DN3000

The MAC ID of the DN-3000is its node address on a DeviceNet Network. The MAC ID of aDN-3000can range from 0 to 63. Type the desired value in the field and pressENTER.

Baud Rate

Baud Rate determines the rate at which the DN-3000exchanges data on a DeviceNet network. The Baud Rate setting must be the same for all devices on the DeviceNet network. TheDN-3000supports baud rates of 125, 250 and 500 kbps. The dot between the brackets indicates the current selection. Use theUP/DOWN arrow keys and theSPACEBAR to select the desired baud rate.

DeviceNet to PLCs or Devices

Use your computer’s UP/DOWN arrow keys to move through the PLC/Device Protocol List. Place the highlight bar on the desired Protocol and press theENTER key. The software will enter this selection and automatically close the Protocol selection window. After the selection window closes, you will need to check the communications setting for the selected Protocol, making changes as necessary.

2 Wire RS422 or RS485 Communications

This box will only need to be checked if the communications with your PLC/Device is a 2-wireRS485 or RS422 interface. When2-wirecommunications are being used, RTS must be looped back to CTS on theDN-3000side of the cable. This can be done on the RS232 side by looping pins 4 and 5 or on the RS422/485 side by looping 16 to 18 and 17 to 19.

DN3000 Address

Some PLC/Device protocols require each PLC or Device on a network to be assigned a unique address. The DN3000 Address is the address assigned to the DN-3000on the PLC/Device network.

Communications Settings

The communications settings are automatically set to the default values for each type of PLC/Device when its Protocol is first selected. Before changing any of these settings, consult your PLC/Device manual for the correct settings. To move between the communications settings, press the TAB orENTER keys. To select a setting, use theUP/DOWN arrow key to move to the desired setting and press theSPACE BAR to enter or change your selection.

RTS Control (Request to Send Control)

RTS Control selection is an option provided for modems or for PLCs/Devices that require RTS to be active only while the DN-3000is transmitting to the PLC. IfRTS/CTS is selected, theDN-3000will activate RTS and wait until CTS is active before transmitting to the PLC. IfRTS Delay is selected, theDN-3000will activate RTS and wait for the specified delay time to pass before transmitting to the PLC.

Response Time-Out

The Response Time-Outtells theDN-3000how long to wait after transmitting a request to a PLC/Device if no response has been received from the PLC/Device. After this amount of time (specified in milliseconds) passes with no response being received, theDN-3000will assume that no response is coming and will retry the request.

To save the configuration for Port #1, press the “Alt+S” keys or theF10 function key once and a small window appears stating the information was saved. Press theENTER key, then theESC key to return to the“EDIT” window.

CONFIGURINGPORT# 3 (PASSTHROUGH)

Not all PLC/Device protocols allow for the pass-throughcommunications. If your selected Protocol on Port 2 is capable ofpass-throughcommunications, the“Port 3 (Passthrough)” header within the“EDIT” menu will be black (if light gray, the PLC does not supportPass-Throughcommunications). Place the Highlight bar around the“Port 3 (Passthrough)” header and press theENTER key to open this screen. (See drawing below)

A Selected PLC or Device Protocol that supports Pass-ThroughCommunications

For descriptions of all entry fields on this screen except for the Intermessage Time-Out,refer to

CONFIGURING PORT #2 (PLCs or Devices) in this section.

Intermessage Time-Out

The DN-3000uses the IntermessageTime-Outto determine when a complete message has been received on the PassThrough port. Once the first character of a message has been received, if the amount of time specified by the IntermessageTime-Outpasses with no additional characters being received, theDN-3000will consider the message to be complete and process it.

Check over the communications settings, making corrections as needed, and save this information by pressing the letter “S” or theF10 function key(s) once. A small window will appear stating the information was saved. Press theENTER key, then theESC key to return to the“EDIT” menu.
