Data Communication

Amplifier Function

NPN/PNP Output Selection (judgment selection)

Both NPN and PNP outputs are supported. The outputs are set the first time the user turns on the power. These settings can subsequently be changed. Judgments are output as HIGH, GO, or LOW.

Bank Function

Bank Function

The bank function can register up to four patterns of specific settings.* For example, in response to a measurement target changeover, this function allows the user to easily switch between the patterns of registered settings.
* HIGH setting value, LOW setting value, binarization level, shift target value, etc.

Analog Output Selection

Analog Output Selection

The following four types of analog outputs can be selected. The output is selected the first time the user turns on the power.

Communication Unit

DL-EP1 EtherNet/IP™ Communication Unit

DL-EP1 EtherNet/IP™ Communication Unit

The DL-EP1 is an EtherNet/IP™ compatible adaptor which can read and write the data from the connected sensor amplifier from a PLC (programmable controller). It supports cyclic communication as well as UCMM and Class 3 (explicit message communication). Data can be exchanged without a ladder program. The sensor amplifier settings and status can be read and written at random timing, and commands can be issued to the sensor amplifier.

DL-DN1 DeviceNet™ supported Communication Unit

DL-DN1 DeviceNet™ supported Communication Unit

The DL-DN1 operates as a slave unit of DeviceNet™ communication. Using DeviceNet™ communications, the sensor amplifiers and other units connected to the DL-DN1 can transmit their ON/ OFF control signals and measured values as communication data to PLC or other equipment.
The DL-DN1 supports I/O communication (polling) and explicit messaging. I/O polling enables data communication without the need of a ladder program. Explicit messaging allows for reading/writing sensor amplifier parameters and issuing commands to the sensor amplifiers.

DL-PN1

DL-PN1 PROFINET Communication Unit

The DL-PN1 operates as a slave unit of PROFINET communication.
By using PROFINET communications, the sensor amplifiers connected to the DL-PN1 can send their ON/OFF signals and measured values to the PLC or other equipments.
DL-PN1 supports data I/O communication and record data communication.

DL-PD1

DL-PD1 PROFIBUS DP Communication Unit

The DL-PD1 operates as a slave unit of PROFIBUS DP communication.
By using PROFIBUS DP communications, the sensor amplifiers connected to the DL-PD1 can send their ON/OFF signals and measured values to the PLC or other equipments.
DL-PD1 supports cyclic communication and acyclic communication of the DP-V1 service.

DL-RS1A RS-232C communication unit

DL-RS1A RS-232C communication unit

Use this unit when outputting digital data to an external device with RS-232C signals. It is necessary to connect it to a PC when using the startup support software, IG Configurator. A single communication unit can retrieve data from up to four IG Series display units.

DL-RB1A BCD output unit

DL-RB1A BCD output unit

Use this unit when retrieving numerical data from the IG Series to an external device as digital data. A single communication unit can retrieve data from up to four IG Series display units in BCD.
